MUTINY BREAKS OUT AT VENEZUELA'S CENTRAL BANK | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


MUTINY BREAKS OUT AT VENEZUELA'S CENTRAL BANK

the ongoing "soft coup" is also playing out within the halls of the central bank, where in addition to a lot of currency printing in recent years, Bloomberg reports that staffers are waging a small mutiny and refusing to sign-off on key bank transactions.

According to "four people with direct knowledge of the matter", some central bank employees received "early retirement offers" Friday after disregarding orders from upper management. The mini mutiny took place as staffers fret about potential consequences and repercussions of signing off on financial operations that have been barred by US sanctions, and as discontent bubbles over as Venezuela’s economic and political outlook deteriorates.

As previously reported, attempts by Maduro to repatriate $1.2 billion of gold from the Bank of England and plans to ship 20 tons of the metal abroad for cash have been stymied in the past several weeks, bringing close international scrutiny to Banco Central de Venezuela’s $8.4 billion in reserves due to fears the Maduro regime may try to pillage them next, prompting a freeze on Venezuelan assets held in western banks.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Maduro, a word, please: when the banks and the military desert you, it truly may be time to seriously re-evaluate your options.

And sir, I would suggest, in the most sang-froid way, that your best possible help might come from Russia and China, neither of which want to see their investments in your country go "mammary glands up."

And, on a personal note, if this coup starts going successfully "full-tilt boogie", expect no better, in terms of your treatment, and ultimate disposal, by US-led mercs, than did Saddam Hussein or President Gaddafi got, at the hands of the invaders of their countries.

The US government so loves, almost maniacally, to prattle on about democracy, human rights, and human dignity; but when it comes to their much loved "regime change specials", particularly when a country has an embarrassment of riches, as does Venezuela, with its oil reserves, those values are absolutely practiced in the breach, rather than the observation of them.

Unless the Russians and Chines are willing to come to your aid, militarily, Were I you, I would begin a search on countries which have no extradition treaties with the US, and decide on a permanent vacation somewhere else.
