“The recently named US Special Envoy on Venezuela, Elliott Abrams, is back in the halls of power after a career of supporting dictators, violence and genocide around the world.”

The basic conspiracy is the ‘Feudal System’, whereby the top people control most of the wealth.

The ‘uprising’ in Venezuela, organised by John Bolton, is an attempt to return Venezuela to a Feudal System, in which the rich (white) elite will treat the poor (mixed-race) as slaves.

The Venezuela Myth

Guaido is CIA?

According to the Canadian professor Michel Chossudovsky, the USA and its Big Oil companies more or less ruled Venezuela from 1918 until 1998, when Chavez took over.

Venezuela: From Oil Proxy to Chavez to sabotage.

Professor Michel Chossudovsky of Global Research.

Before 1998, “Venezuela’s oil wealth was not used to build schools and hospitals.

“The oil surplus was largely recycled into the hands of the oil giants and the local elites.”

In the period before Chavez, “the levels of poverty were abysmally high.”

Poverty in the USA.

BEFORE CHAVEZ – 

“Approximately 45 percent  of Venezuelans were suffering from extreme undernourishment.

Infant mortality was exceedingly high.

The rate of (functional) illiteracy was 42%.

A majority of the population had little or no access to health care services.

Half the urban population had no access to an adequate system of running water within their home.

More than 30 percent of the total workforce was unemployed or underemployed.

(Michel Chossudovsky, excerpts from La Miseria en Venezuela, Vadell, Caracas, 1978, translated from Spanish)

Thanks to Chavez – Venezuelans and their new houses.

According to Michel Chossudovsky, Chavez did not turn Venezuela into a socialist economy. 

“It was essentially a capitalist economy…

“Chavez created what were called the Communal Councils, which were largely focusing on issues of housing, healthcare and so on…

“The failures that we’re now seeing, rising consumer prices, hyperinflation, those are engineered…

“We might say that it’s part of the IMF, World Bank, Federal Reserve “remedy,” or action.

“It’s very easy for Wall Street to destabilize currencies. It’s been applied in many, many countries…

“If you want to destroy a country, you destroy its currency.”

‘Nicolas Maduro won the elections. He is the president of Venezuela and we will all pitch in to keep him in power.

‘It’s a terrible shame that outside forces are waging an economic war against Venezuela.’

“Despite an ongoing food and medicine shortages – largely due to illegal hoarding by corporations owned by the right-wing opposition – Venezuela maintained a higher ranking than Colombia.”

The US government would like venezuela to be like Colombia.

In Colombia, “paramilitary groups, often with the support of local merchants, the Colombian military, and local police, have engaged in extensive ‘social cleansing‘ operations against homeless people, orphaned children, and other people they deem socially “undesirable”.[114][115][116][117][118]

“In 1993 alone, at least 2190 street children were murdered, many of whom were killed by agents of the state. An estimated 5 people per day fell victim to social cleansing operations in 1995.”[119]

“In 2001. Colombian government sources estimated that at least 40% of all cocaine exports from Colombia were controlled by far-right paramilitary groups.” .[81]

Colombia has the largest number of people forcibly disappeared in all of the Americas.

Colombia has one of the largest internally displaced populations on earth at well over 7 million – second only to Syria.

Colombia ranks 3rd in the world for the number of children murdered.

“Social leaders are being murdered at an alarming rate. Over 200 social leaders have been killed just since January of 2017. Last year was in fact the worst year on record for human rights defenders in Colombia, with 120 killed in 2017.”

1. Venezuela’s economic problems did not start with the election of Chavez in 1998.

2. In Venezuela, from 1983 to 1998, real income fell by 14%.
In 1998, before Chavez took over, 68% of Venezuelans lived below the poverty line. 
In 1998, before Chavez took over, the inflation rate was 35.8%.3. In 1998, before Chavez took over, Venezuela was extremely corrupt.
.Italian Mafia activity was very big in Venezuela, before Chavez took over in 1998.
4. After Chavez was elected president the economy strengthened considerably for three years.
The inflation rate fell to 12.5% in 2001.
The poverty rate was successfully lowered to 39%.

5. What did cause the first downturn of Venezuela’s economy was a CIA coup  in 2002 and a  violent shutdown, by enemies of Chavez, of the country’s oil industry. 
(The Venezuelan coup d’état attempt of 2002 was a failed coup d’état on 11 April 2002 that saw President Hugo Chávez ousted from office for 47 hours before being restored to power.)

6. Venezuela bounced back and in 2005, the Venezuelan economy grew by 9.4%, the highest in Latin America. 
In 2011, equality in Venezuela was better than in the US and only behind Canada in the Western Hemisphere. 
The Chavéz government managed to put into place policies that aided the poor and, at the same time, strengthened the economy.

7. A factor in Venezuela’s ‘economic crash’ is the apparently intentional meddling of oil prices by Saudi Arabia and its allies that apparently aimed at hurting Iran, Venezuela and Russia. 
8. Economic sanctions, organised by the USA, can cripple any economy. 
The imposition of economic sanctions can decrease a country’s per capita GDP growth rate by 25 to 30 percentage points on average with effects lasting for at least 10 years. 

Chavez and Assad.
9. In 1993, sanctions on Serbia made more than half the population of the country poor, unemployed, or displaced as refugees.
In Iraq, the economic sanctions led to a decrease in GDP from $38 billion in 1989 to $10.8 billion in 1996. 
Iraq experienced a shift from relative affluence to massive poverty.
In 2006, the first economic sanctions against Venezuela were put in place by the USA.
The Trump Administration greatly escalated the economic pressures.

Juan Guaidó

On 23 January 2019, Juan Guaidó swore himself in as acting President of Venezuela in the context of the ongoing presidential crisis, which came into being following the inauguration of Nicolás Maduro as President of Venezuela in January 2019.

Guaidós claim has been recognized by the Organization of American States[3][4] and several governments, including Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and the United States,[ but he is rejected by the pro-Maduro Supreme Tribunal of Justice.[13]
Juan Guaidó did postgraduate studies at George Washington University, which has been linked to the CIA.



Craig Murray writes:

“Over the years, Chavez racked up real achievements in improving living standards for the poor and in providing health and education facilities. 

“He was widely popular and both he and his successor, Nicolas Maduro, also racked up very genuine election victories. 
“Maduro remains the democratically elected President.
“But the dream went sour. In particular it fell foul of the tendency of centrally planned economies to fail to get the commodities people want onto shop shelves, and to the corruption that goes with centralisation. 
“The latter was certainly not worse than the right wing corruption it replaced, but that does not diminish its existence…
“But, even today, Venezuela is still vastly more of a democracy than Saudi Arabia, and a far greater respecter of human rights than Israel in its dreadful repression of the Palestinians.”
