Default Trumpís Latest Neocon Adviser Assigned Task of Overthrowing Maduro in Venezuela

Trump’s Latest Neocon Adviser Assigned Task of Overthrowing Maduro in Venezuela

Quote:
...It is now obvious, with the Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s appointment of convicted criminal Elliott Abrams as his “point person” on Venezuela, that the neocons have taken full control of Trump’s foreign policy.

“This crisis in Venezuela is deep and difficult and dangerous and I can’t wait to get to work on it,” said Abrams after Pompeo made the announcement.

...Recall the role Mr. Abrams played during the Reagan years. He helped fund the Contras in Nicaragua and is linked to the 1982 El Mozote massacre of hundreds of civilians in El Salvador. It was later estimated by a UN truth commission that 85 percent of the abuses during the civil war in El Salvador were committed by military death squads assisted by the Reagan administration.

Abrams has experience overthrowing governments not following the neoliberal master plan. In 2002, during the Bush neocon regime, Abrams worked on a failed Venezuelan coup. Venezuelan President Hugo ChŠvez was jailed. Supporters and a loyal military freed ChŠvez and likely saved him from what would later be known as the Gaddafi method of deposing disfavored leaders refusing to follow neoliberal strictures as pushed by the Council on Foreign Relations where Abrams is a senior fellow.

...
It is unknown at this point what the neocon triumvirate—Bolton, Pompeo, Abrams—will do in regard to Venezuela. For now, the US has declared the “military option” (of murder and mayhem) is “on the table” in response to re-election of NicholŠs Maduro. The heavy lifting will be left to the Lima Group—Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Panama, Paraguay and Peru—and these countries may be used to inflict a “humanitarian intervention” on the people of Venezuela.

The Organization of American States has not backed the neocon and Lima Group effort to evict Maduro and return the oil-rich nation to the neoliberal orbit. It cites the OAS Charter of 1948. Article 19, Chapter IV states: “No State or group of States has the right to intervene, directly or indirectly, for any reason whatever, in the internal or external affairs of any other State. The foregoing principle prohibits not only armed force but also any other form of interference or attempted threat against the personality of the State or against its political, economic, and cultural elements.”

For a large number of Trump supporters, making America Great Again means continuing the imperial objectives of the empire—installing preferred satraps (Juan Guaidů in Venezuela) or those tolerable to Wall Street and the Chicago School version of neoliberalism.

The hypocrisy is palatable. Trump and his diehard supporters stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the Democrat “Resistance” and the “liberal” media in regard to Venezuela. “It is revealing how the supposedly anti-Trump media have closed ranks and are marching in lockstep with the administration when it comes to overthrowing Washington’s official enemies. The media are not opposing Trump or tyranny; they are enabling it,” writes Alan MacLeod.

There is very little pushback inside the United States over these grossly illegal and immoral interventions. The Trump faithful has demonstrated repeatedly there are few differences between them and the “libtards” when the issue is supporting the financial elite and their crimes.

and magically becomes "constitutional" when Trump does it as well.

Plus one of the odd things here is that for 2+ years now many on the left have complained about RUSSIAN interfering/Puppeteering/influencing/rigging/ our elections. And the right has mainly said (correctly) it'd be wrong if they did but... it hasn't happened.
But here Trump and friends are ready to literally overthrow a gov't election and a countries leadership. And people are like HO HUM fixing elections and U.S. military coups. to put a president in that we can control, and put American/international companies back in control of Venezuelan oil field.
God Bless America.

see no evil here?
It's just the American Gov't in South American politics ...again (wipes bloody hands) we're here to help.

Rand Paul: Keep Elliott Abrams Away From State Department
If President Donald Trump grants a State Department position to Elliott Abrams, "neocons will scurry in by the hundreds," according to Sen. Rand Paul.
"Neoconservative interventionists have had us at perpetual war for 25 years," Paul wrote in Rare Tuesday. "While President Trump has repeatedly stated his belief that the Iraq War was a mistake, the neocons (all of them Never-Trumpers) continue to maintain that the Iraq and Libyan Wars were brilliant ideas. These are the same people who think we must blow up half the Middle East, then rebuild it and police it for decades.
"They're wrong and they should not be given a voice in this administration."
Trump is set to meet with Abrams on Tuesday, to find if he would be a suitable deputy for recently confirmed Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.
Abrams was a former assistant secretary of state during President Ronald Reagan's administration. In 1991, during the Iran-contra affair, he was convicted of a misdemeanor for withholding information from Congress. President George H.W. Bush later granted him a pardon.
"His conviction for deceiving Congress over secret arms deals, better known as the Iran-Contra scandal, show that his neocon agenda trumps his fidelity to the rule of law. The Constitution directs Congress to approve or disapprove of war. It would be a mistake to appoint anyone to the State Department who was previously convicted for defying Congressional authority," Paul wrote.

"Larry Wilkerson joins Paul Jay as they discuss the special meeting of the Security Council that took place on January 26, where many small countries stood up against American pressure and refused to recognize Juan Guaido as president of Venezuela, and defended the UN principle of non-interference"
