Elections haven’t happened and already US politicians are calling it fraudulent. No, I don’t mean @realdonaldtrump and November, this time its @senatormenendez and Venezuela’s December legislative elections.
Topic is now gold mining. Seems like it would be easier for Venezuela to clamp down on illegal gold mining if the US hadn’t sanctioned its gold sector in 2018. Maybe it would be a bigger security priority for Vzla if the US wasn’t threatening to invade.
lol @randpaul thinks Guaidó is a socialist. His party has deeply fascist roots (not an exaggeration – party founders belonged to an org called Tradition, Family, Property)

Evo Morales was overthrown so that Elon Musk could loot Bolivia’s lithium, and they aren't even hiding it anymore.

During his #COVID19 press conference, Trump announced that he's deploying the Navy to #Venezuela. Wait, what? What's #coronavirus got to do with Venezuela?

NOTHING.

Trump is distracting us from his incompetence by threatening war. #HandsOffVenezuela

Trump's justification for the naval deployment is cocaine trafficking. But guess what?? #Venezuela doesn't even produce cocaine! This is just another one of Trump's attempts to #WagTheDog. Check out this map of maritime drug routes. 👇👇👇
Let's take a further look at this map, shall we?
#Venezuela is barely a blip on the map.

If Trump's excuse for deploying ships was truly about drugs, then why isn't the US imposing sanctions & threatening war on Colombia? #WagTheDog

9/11/1973: The Chilean coup d'etat.
The United States worked via the CIA to assist overthrowing of Chile's socialist government of President Salvador Allende by General Pinochet, leading to repression and thousands of deaths. Most executed, died under torture or “disappeared.
Margaret Thatcher ghoulishly thanked Pinochet for bringing "democracy to Chile". Pinochet received support for years from Canada's ruling class.
Canadians including Albertan premier Ralph Klein, the Fraser Institute, the National Post, members of the Progressive Conservative party and Peter Munk, CEO of Barrick Gold, who praised Pinochet both at a 1996 stockholders meeting and in the pages of Time Magazine.

13. United States decided to label #IRGC terrorists. But who are the real terrorists? Who created, trained, armed & financed the worst terrorist groups in the world?

#Hypocrites #DoubleStandards #Liars #Warlords #USRealTerrorists
Wrong US policies in the Middle East. Sanctions against Iran. Sanctions used by the USA as a war weapon🤨👇🏼

Attacks on @TulsiGabbard for her good judgement is nonsensical
#Syria's President #Assad did not gas his own ppl👇Facts Matter‼️
It’s now revealed that @OPCW suppressed expert engineers report that found the cylinders were staged & not dropped from the air:
#WhyTulsi👇🤨
It’s now revealed that #OPCW suppressed expert engineers report that found the cylinders were likely not dropped from the air.

#Tulsi2020 #TulsiGabbard #NoMoreWars #ForeignPolicy #Syria #Assad
#ChemicalWeapons Attack Were Staged👇😡‼️
The #OPCW confirms that a leaked document on alleged gas cylinders at #Douma in #Syria is genuine. It says it is conducting 'an internal investigation' about its 'unauthorised release.' :

Now in the streets of Washington DC: “@AmbJohnBolton you can’t hide, we charge you with genocide.” #HandsOffVenezuela
It wouldn’t be a DC protest without harassment from empire babies! This man tells me the US would be saving people if it invaded Venezuela... how’d that workout for Yugoslavia, Iraq, or Libya?
Spotted in Washington DC: @carlosvecchio pleads for the US to levy more sanctions against the very people he’s claiming to represent. How bizarre!

THREAD: voices of peace activists outside of the Venezuelan embassy. #HandsOffVenezuela

codepink.org/embassyprotect…
This man traveled from Florida to say #HandsOffVenezuela!
This veteran for peace was disgusted when he saw the video of the @SecretService slamming @VFPNational President Gerry Condon’s face into the ground, and then decided to come support the Embassy Protection Collective and to resist US imperialism here in DC. #HandsOffVenezuela

Trump's #Venezuela embargo is far worse than the one imposed on Saddam, who was still allowed to sell 2 million barrels of oil a day. And Saddam was allowed some access to the nation’s foreign bank accounts. #HandsOffVenezuela
The #Venezuela embargo is brutal — no food and medicine, no spare parts allowed to fix essential infrastructure such as the subway, electric, and water systems. As the UN rapporteur said, this is a medieval siege. #HandsOffVenezuela
Is Maduro a great guy? Is he a wonderful democrat? Nope. Is he competent? Not very. Chavez would've cut a deal—he did many, quietly. I know Maduro, he's inflexible. But Venezuelans don’t want Donald Trump, Donald Tusk, BP or Exxon choosing their president. gregpalast.com/venezuela-the-…
