While The Americans Are Dealing With An Orchestrated Government Shutdown, The Trump Administration Has Staged A Coup In Venezuela

Once again, Washington has installed another of its puppet dictators, this time in Venezuela, which is why Washington orchestrated this latest government shutdown that induced mass hysteria in the Amerikkkan people, just as it was designed to do. Amerikkkans obediently followed the ‘government shutdown bouncing ball’ which was orchestrated in order to cause the most harm by ensuring that federal workers lose their income while at the same time causing those who rely on federal programs to fear the loss of housing and food assistance even as Washington intends to allow multinational corporations to steal and abscond with everything in Venezuela that is not nailed down, especially its oil, gas and gold since Washington’s puppet dictator will allow Washington to dictate his every move. The U.S. does not intend to collapse without leaving a lasting impression.


Maduro claimed an attempted coup backed by the “gringo empire” was under way and urged supporters – and crucially the armed forces – to resist it “at all costs”.

“We are defending the right to the very existence of our Bolivarian Republic,” Maduro said, accusing his foes of trying to steal Venezuela’s oil, gas and gold: “They intend to govern Venezuela from Washington. Do you want a puppet government controlled by Washington?”

Nicolás Maduro, the duly elected president of Venezuela has given U.S. diplomats 72 hours to leave Venezuela. The Trump Administration’s response was to ignore the demand claiming that Maduro has been replaced by Juan Guaido, self-proclaimed president of Venezuela and CIA installed puppet. Quick to follow Washington’s recognition of Juan Guaido as the new president of Venezuela were Canada, Brazil, Colombia, Chile, Peru, Ecuador, Argentina, Paraguay and Costa Rica. Brazil’s new far right president, Jair Bolsonaro, likewise followed suit since he is also just another Washington puppet.

Maduro is absolutely right in that this is indeed, “an attempted coup backed by the ‘gringo empire’.” And Russia has warned the Trump Administration against using military action in Venezuela to force Nicolas Maduro to step down and allow Washington’s puppet to become the next president of Venezuela.


We warn against this,” Russia’s deputy foreign minister, Sergei Ryabkov, said in an interview with International Affairs magazine, a Russian media outlet. “We believe that this would be a catastrophic scenario that would shake the foundations of the development model we see in the Latin American region.”

Russia has supported Maduro’s government politically and militarily. The Kremlin dispatched two Russian bombers to Venezuela last month, a provocative move that raised red flags in Washington.

Once again, the Russians are trying to stop yet another blatant takeover by Washington of a sovereign state. And the Russians are the problem? The Trump Administration has stated that “all options are on the table,” including sanctions and military action. What has happened when the U.S. has used the military to do its dirty work?


David Smilde, a Venezuela expert from the Washington Office on Latin America advocacy group said: “Look at Somalia, look at Afghanistan, look at Iraq: all of those cases were supposed to be short military actions and actually what they do is end up generating enormous costs in terms of loss of life and infrastructure.”


But Washington does not care about loss of life or infrastructure since our tax dollars are then used to rebuild countries that the U.S. has bombed to smithereens and the people who are killed are of no consequence just as we are not, case in point is Iraq. The U.S. military destroyed Iraq and now Americans are footing the bill for the rebuilding of that country even as the U.S. government is ‘shutdown’. The U.S. had no business sending the military into Afghanistan and yet our tax dollars are being used to train Afghan forces to attack the Taliban while U.S. military forces are protecting Afghan opium in order to send shipments back to the U.S. and straight into the veins of Amerikkkans while at the same time claiming a “war on drugs.”

Every single time the U.S. sets its sights on another country, the people of that country suffer for it as does its infrastructure and those of us in the US suffer as well because we are told that there is no money and yet, somehow and mysteriously, money can always be found to buy more missiles and drones to attack countries that have done nothing to warrant the attack. And yet, the Trump Administration is yelling and screeching and grandstanding about the need to build a wall to keep those south of the border from coming to the U.S. when in fact, the Trump Administration’s policies are making life so miserable for those people, they are leaving their devastated countries and attempting to cross the border into the U.S., only to be met with tear gas and rubber bullets. The policies of the U.S. government has caused those people to have to flee their homes and now the U.S. wants to build a wall to keep out the results of policies it put into play to force people to run for their lives? That is insanity!

Iraq’s officials have stated that they want the U.S. out of their country. Libya is still in flames. Somalia, likewise. Afghanistan, the same. Yemen, indeed! And the list is endless. This is ALL because the ‘American empire’ is collapsing and intends to take as many countries down with it as it descends. It is like a gigantic snake that has had its head chopped off, but its tail is still thrashing about, destroying everything it strikes. This bitch, Amerikkka, even in its death throes is still dangerous and the only hope for other countries to make it through to the last thrash of this dying empire is Russia, China and Iran. Russia most definitely understands this since they have already sent military bombers to Venezuela, just as they had to with Syria because if not for the Russians, Syria would have a Washington installed puppet dictator. Maybe Russia is finally understanding what should have been understood hundreds of years ago in that no one can trust Amerikkkans. That ship should have long since sailed. Look at how this country treats its own citizens. Throws them under the bus at every opportunity even to the point of impoverishing those who work FOR the government. How can any Amerikkkan citizen still believe that the U.S. government gives a damn about their safety when TSA federal workers earn a measly $30,000 and have not been paid in over 30 days and come Friday, will miss a second paycheck? Homeland Security federal workers are not being paid and what was that agency set up to do? Keep US safe from so-called terrorists. The terrorists are sitting up on your tax dollars and strutting about the halls of congress and are inside the White House causing you much grief, anguish and hand-wringing since you cannot pay your bills, are about to lose your housing, are about to see your credit score take a nosedive, are about to lose your car and empty your pantry. The U.S. government is not some great entity that ever stood for a belief in life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness because the average Amerikkkan is anything but happy.

Are you happy to be broke and destitute and in debt? Are you happy to live paycheck to paycheck? Are you happy about the fact that the government can just shutdown at any time and force you to work without pay over a trumped up excuse for the shutdown? Are you happy to see politicians that they claim you elect, act like children on the playground while your lives are spiraling down, out of control? Do you think the homeless are happy to be living on the streets? Do you think they are happy to have worms falling out of their asshole since hookworm has made a comeback which until now was only found in third world countries? Do you think they are happy battling typhus and hepatitis A,B and C? Do you think children are happy to go to bed at night with their stomachs growling? Do you think those people who just got shot dead in a bank in Florida were happy when those bullets pierced their flesh? Who the hell is happy in this shithole? Who? When federal workers are reporting that they are living paycheck to paycheck, how do you think others are living? Are you happy since you are sitting somewhere likely to blow yourself up with your meth lab? Are you happy that in order to make it through the day, you have to shoot up some heroin that your own government made possible for you to obtain since your government has instructed the military to guard some poppy plants in Afghanistan in order to send them here to feed your addictions since you are just too happy for words? Do you think Amerikkka’s 2.5 million prisoners are happy since many of them were imprisoned on bullshit drug charges while the U.S. government is the biggest drug cartel in the world? Yeah, we’re all fucking happy. Broke, drunk, high, stupid and happy, that’s US!

Stop following the bouncing ball. Look at where they don’t want you to look. When they are focusing your attention on a specific action orchestrated by them such as a government shutdown, then you can best believe that some foul ass shit is going down elsewhere. There is no U.S. media coverage of what the Trump Administration has been initiating in Venezuela. If they are so worried about people from south of the border coming to the U.S. then why are they hell bent on doing everything that would increase the numbers of those attempting to cross the border? It is all smoke and mirrors, people! Smoke and mirrors. Every single news article that I have read has been all about bad news. Verizon is laying off a percentage of its workforce. Apple is laying off people. Despite announcements of increased holiday spending, stores are still announcing closures. J.C. Penney has announced that it may have to follow in Sears’ footsteps. And as this empire collapses, Wall Street will be the last to go down. They are the musicians on this Titanic, furiously intent on ignoring the sinking ship until they are underwater. But sink, they will. Again, it’s ALL smoke and mirrors, people, smoke and mirrors and ‘follow the bouncing ball’ as they fuck up another country by installing a puppet dictator while ignoring the legitimate one. Amerikkka has been in the business of regime change for too damn long and it will not cease until this empire goes the route of Rome and we are definitely headed there. Just take a look around you. I see no ‘amber waves of grain.’ And if you see any, believe me, those waves of grain contain a known carcinogen, glyphosate. And you can thank your government for that as well. If you have not gotten a clue yet, then I don’t know what there is to say about you!

I’ll leave you with a little poem I wrote a few years ago. It seems an apt ending.

Armageddon’s Child Is Born!

The mirrors all are cracking,
and the smoke is blowing away.
You can see the whole thing clearly.
Another crash, they can’t delay.

Follow the Russian ruble.
Focus your attention on Iraq.
They created another terrorist.
And now Ebola’s coming back.

Don’t look beneath the table.
The gamblers all are dead.
The cracking of their bones,
means they have no betting spread.

This show is over folks.
And as the Ball comes to an end,
the rotund lady sings.
And there’s no money left to lend.

The dancers writhe in agony.
Their frenzied pomp is gone.
And the badly written script,
only elicits another yawn.

The bull is now a bear.
And as I look across the sea,
another bear just shakes his head,
over America’s stupidity.

Say “Farewell” to all you know.
The stars and stripes are torn.
As they launch the killing drones,
Armageddon’s child is born.

In case you forgot, they just recently flew an American doctor back to the U.S. They believe he was exposed to Ebola.

    1. Dr. Bramhall, I cannot thank you enough for the re-blog. I am quite honored. I just stated the truth and if people cannot see the truth, it is because they want to willfully remain blind, although at this stage, I don’t see how many can remain blind since millions of Americans are feeling the pinch. They’ve put the squeeze on us ALL and as dangerous as America has always been, this bitch is even more dangerous in its death throes. Watch the developments unfold. Washington is begging for war and Russia is helping Venezuela prepare for Washington’s ‘takeover’ of that country while Americans are biting their nails and scratching their heads over how to keep a roof over their heads and food on the table. I just saw where they have taken another look at the ‘Doomsday Clock’ and stated that it is still ‘two minutes from Armageddon’. And I swear I posted this before I had even seen that article. I must have some ‘gypsy’ blood in me after all seeing as how I beat them to the punch with my poem, “Armageddon’s Child Is Born!”

      Doomsday clock has world at two minutes from Armageddon

      Humanity is just two minutes from Armageddon, unchanged from last year’s unveiling of the Doomsday clock and remaining the closest it has inched to symbolic doom since 1953 in the height of the Cold War.

      Dr. Bramhall, again, thank you!

    1. Thank you again for the compliment on this one. Hopefully, many will see this because we are being played and that is a fact.

      Commerce chief tells strapped federal workers to get loans

      Workers affected by the government shutdown should seek loans to pay their bills and financial institutions should make credit available, U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said Thursday as employees were poised to miss their second paycheck.

      In an interview on CNBC, Ross said it was “disappointing” that some federal workers were not showing up to work and that “there really is not a good excuse” for affected workers to not have money.

      “The banks and the credit unions should be making credit available to them,” said Ross, a billionaire investor. He noted the government had committed to give federal employees back pay, adding “there really is not a good excuse why there really should be a liquidity crisis.”

      “True, the people might have to pay a little bit of interest.

      This son-of-a-bitch who is a billionaire has the gonads to tell federal workers to take out loans while working for no pay in order to tide them over while the government plays shutdown games. That is more than just insulting, it is down right contemptible! He can sit on his lofty perch, holding tightly to his billions while telling government workers to head to the bank and take out a loan which of course would increase the profits of his cronies in the banking industry since interest will be collected on those loans that federal workers would not need to take out if they were getting paid for the work they do. These assholes have got the balls of bulls and that is not a compliment and what’s even worse or at the least comparable to what this asshole said is this.

      Lara Trump to federal workers not getting paid: ‘This is so much bigger than any one person’

      Lara Trump, the president’s daughter-in-law and campaign adviser, said in an interview this week that the ongoing partial government shutdown “is so much bigger than any one person.”

      Trump made the remarks after BOLD TV host Carrie Sheffield asked her “in terms of the workers who are coming to work and not getting paid, what would you say to them?”

      “Listen this is, it’s not fair to you and we all get that but this is so much bigger than any one person,” Trump responded.

      “It is a little bit of pain but it’s going to be for the future of our country and their children and their grandchildren and generations after them will thank them for their sacrifice,” she said. “Right now, I know it’s hard. I know people have families, they have bills to pay, they have mortgages, they have rents that are due.”

      “But the president is trying every single day to come up with a good solution here,” she said, “and the reality is, it’s been something that’s gone on for too long and been unaddressed, our immigration problem. If we do nothing right now it’s never going to get fixed.”

      These ‘people’ are just absolutely unbelievable! Just unbelievable! She is actually stating that people who are having to go to food pantries in order to put food on the table for their children are going to be praised by generations to come for their sacrifice in working without a paycheck because the government orchestrated this shutdown in order to take the focus away from what was going down in Venezuela and elsewhere? She is so out of touch with the reality for everyday Americans, it is just unreal! These people are lunatics! Those government workers have not donned military uniforms to head overseas and destroy some made up enemy, they are pawns being used in a “Game of Thrones,” even as they are being forced to play “The Hunger Games.” “Doomsday Clock,” indeed!

      Dr. Bramhall, even as I type this my head is spinning over it all! I have never! And believe me, that is a big deal!

      Thank you again, Dr. Bramhall!

  2. The American Empire wasn’t satisfied with 13 colonies, nothing could stop them in their self-sanctified greed for more and ever more land. They exterminated every Indigenous person and animal in their wide-ass path to a more Manifest Destiny. They let out their belts (borders) after gorging on gluts of land previously stolen by the Spanish Empire a bit earlier, kept the Spanish names for some reason. Why so many San-named places? Answer: Remember the Alamo. Simultaneously bring in Human resources from Africa to make the Whiteous safe, happy, wealthy and God-fearingly devoted to the innumerable myths they created from thin air to Whitewash the sacred History memorized by centuries of dogmatized students who “learned” a very limited set of soundblights that every loyal citizen-student memorizes — if it’s on the test, that is.
    Money and wealth flow up to the already monied and wealth-bloated Whites. The poorer populations become cannon fodder for the many conquests that keep the gold flowing to the gilded, the neverending Age. The low-hanging fruit gets consumed first, but that doesn’t satisfy true-grit greed, so they build the means to reach the fruit at the top, then they cut down the tree.
    If any country, anywhere on the planet whispers the slightest complaint they get boots on their ground and their uppity regime gets changed. The Schools of the Americas train the loyal puppets of every regime to toe the line or get arrested and sent to prison for life.
    No one even blinks at Venezuela, they’ve already learned the soundblight: Give me liberty or give me slaves.

    1. Bill, once again, I am absolutely awestruck by your comment, truly! I don’t know what I could add to that because you’ve said a ‘mouthful’.

      It is sad, but almost understandable, the fact that Canada, Brazil, Colombia, Chile, Peru, Ecuador, Argentina, Paraguay and Costa Rica have all gone along with what this empire in decline has perpetrated against Venezuela. I guess the leaders of those countries are under the ‘reasonable’ belief that if they denounced Washington’s attempted takeover of Venezuela, they in turn would be next because it is not as if it hasn’t happened times too numerous to count.

      The shit this hellhole has under its vicious, evil, vile, corrupt and criminal belt is just beyond the pale. I am almost at a loss in attempting to find words that could properly convey my hatred and contempt of this shithole. This country never had a moral leg to stand on, never! And for the people over here to stand somewhere and acknowledge something that never existed like justice, freedom, liberty and humanitarianism is just too ludicrous for words. That speaks of mass insanity! To stand and salute a flag dripping with the blood of murdered Indians and slaves and to sing a national anthem that also proudly calls for the murder of slaves who were only fighting to obtain their freedom is beyond lunacy. To throw around words like ‘patriotic’ and ‘sacrifice’ as frequently as one would throw tissues into a trashcan even when speaking of people who are working without pay is amoral. How those ‘people’ who do this, sleep at night, I do not know. But then one must first have a conscience to bother them and it is quite clear that those who makeup this government are seriously lacking a conscience to berate them for the foul ass shit they do.

      There is no way that I could go to sleep at night knowing that I am causing undue stress, anguish, hardship and suffering on people who just want to do their jobs that enable them to take care of their families. And for a billionaire to loftily suggest that the federal workers just ‘take out loans’ shows a blatant disconnect and also a complete lack of empathy for those workers and others who are depending on funding from the government and well they should because it is their tax dollars that is being held hostage by those thugs in Washington. I could go on and on as you can see, but my anger is starting to build and I don’t want to indulge in my usual cussing shitstorms.

      Bill, I thank you kindly for yet another spot on comment!


    2. Exxon has turned Guyana (neighbouring Venezuela) into a satellite and puppet state of NATO. The 2015 elections was rigged by Jimmy Carter, and the puppet administration though it’s representative of the oppressed race, was ruled by a man of African heritage, who is married to an Amerindian woman ( also a disenfranchised group), he kisses the feet of America and the UK. His government is a Caribbean version of a neo-liberal policy.

      It is no conspiracy that once America started placing sanctions against Venezuela, and after Jimmy Carter helped to rig the Guyanese elections in 2015, Exxon quietly confided to the new government that they magically discovered 1 billion barrels of oil after all these years. To date, Exxon has discovered over 5 billion barrels of oil and plan to export 1,000,000 barrels daily by 2025.

      1. Exxon uses the same marketing methods used by BIG Tobacco, Pharma, Junk-Food Giants… A chummy kind of sappy style that insists that their corporations have the same concerns and aspirations as everyone else on the planet —
        “You want a clean and sustainable Earth. Well, so do we.”
        Corporations own the government, the Monroe Doctrine has extended to all hemispheres on the globe now. Elections are rigged everywhere the “stamp of democracy” is accepted: the myth that school children get to pledge their allegiance to. The fifty stars may as well be the fifty corporations. Twenty-six of the über-ultra wealthy just sent their representatives to Davos, Switzerland to dine and to count coins. The poorest of the poor were not in attendance.
