Why the coup against Venezuela failed fort-russ.com/2019/05/major-…
By @BenjaminNorton
Shameful that @DemocracyNow/@NermeenDN gave a very sympathetic platform to supposed"left-wing"opponent of the🇻🇪govt Edgardo Lander without disclosing that*he met with🇺🇸-appointed CoupLeaderGuaidó*
DN failed to disclose this crucial fact!
By @BenjaminNorton
Here is a📷of the leaders of🇻🇪's tiny and irrelevant "leftist" opposition, including Edgardo Lander, having a friendly meeting w🇺🇸-appointed right-wing coup leader Guaidó.
@DemocracyNow gave a very sympathetic platform to Lander without disclosing this meeting.
By @BenjaminNorton
@DemocracyNow/@NermeenDN echoed FalseOpposition TalkingPoints about🇻🇪's elected government.Amy & Nermeen never mentioned the crippling,illegal🇺🇸sanctions.& Nermeen even echoed Edgardo Lander's absurdly false claim that Guaidó is the"most popular leader."Insane!
By @BenjaminNorton
The irony is "leftist"🇻🇪opposition leader (& Guaidó collaborator) Edgardo Lander even admitted his group is "small."

The "left opposition" in🇻🇪 is tiny and irrelevant. The only power they have is in gringo media like Democracy Now, Jacobin, & Socialist Worker
By @BenjaminNorton
Here is another📷from🇺🇸-appointed coup leader Juan Guaidó's own Twitter account showing @DemocracyNow guest Edgardo Lander, and other leaders of Venezuela's tiny supposed "left opposition," collaborating with the right-wing Trump puppet.
By @BenjaminNorton
🇻🇪independent media @OrinocoTribune reported in Feb. on the leaders of the tiny "Critical Chavismo" "left opposition"meeting w Guaidó, including Lander & a leader from the Trotskyite group Marea Socialista—which is popular in @JacobinMag

The imperialist alliance trying to install right-wing puppet Juan Guaidó as 🇻🇪's unelected leader is fracturing, as the coup fails:

🇩🇪has refused to recognize Guaidó's envoy, at the request of🇪🇸which asked other countries to do the same
By @Alfreddezayas
Pompeo is not a constitutional lawyer, and what he says about the President's powers to wage war is inaccurate. Regardless of domestic law, any US intervention in #Venezuela would contravene international law #HandsOffVenezuela

Useful guide about🇻🇪from @caitoz, including...

“Grassroots activists” = Let’s pretend the CIA’s not a thing.
“Freedom and democracy” = US control of Venezuela’s petroleum resources.
“Humanitarian aid” = Pretext for further escalations.

By @jmcevoy2
.@CNN nobody has ever voted for Guaidó in a presidential election.This is shameful:
"It comes as pressure is mounting on Maduro to step down,following elections in January in which voters chose opposition leader Guaido over him for president."
By @MintPressNews
With Guaidó’s parallel government attempting to take power with the backing of the US, it is telling that the top political donors of those in the US most fervently pushing regime change in Venezuela have close ties to Monsanto and Bayer.
🇺🇸is clearly coveting the🇻🇪oil - John Bolton admitted
🇺🇸violated UN Charter by threatening🇻🇪with military strike & assassination of #Maduro
🇺🇸sanctions are not authorised by @UN, these are unilateral gangster tools of financial terrorism
