The American Empire Pivots Toward Venezuela | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


The American Empire Pivots Toward Venezuela

Many people are coming to quick takes on yesterday’s extraordinary decision by the U.S. government to recognize an unelected opposition leader as interim President of Venezuela based on their view of Maduro and his government. Similar to the emotional responses to those first clips of the Covington students and Nathan Phillips, such superficial opinions feel good and confirm biases, but don’t tell you much about what’s really going on. From my seat, the move by the Trump administration to choose the leader of Venezuela by diktat is just straight up imperial geopolitics. Nothing more, nothing less.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The bog news today is Roger Stone and Venezuela has all but vanished from the corporate media. From this, I suspect that the overnight internal polls on public support for another war were terrible.
