coup

So the coup attempt is on.

From Venezuelanalysis:

Caracas, April 30, 2019 (venezuelanalysis.com) - A military coup attempt is underway in Venezuela on Tuesday, April 30, with imprisoned right wing leader Leopoldo Lopez, and self-proclaimed “Interim President” Juan Guaido and some members of the armed forces blocking a highway in Caracas and calling on the military to rise up

It is time for a reality check.

I read blogs and news and am astounded by the apparent lack of understanding of what has happened and is happening. This was not just another election. It is a coup and it has every chance of succeeding if we fail to realize it.
We have an interesting (for lack of a better word) cast of characters starting with Trump and Bannon and going from there.

Big LOL

Sometimes I wonder what it would be like to obtain psychic powers. At first, I thought I'd offer readings to all my close friends. Now I realize there's very little I could say to someone that the Universe wouldn't reveal to them, if they were ready for it.

Let's talk about September 11th.

No, not that September 11th. I mean September 11th, 1973, when the CIA, ITT corporation, Nixon and Kissinger coordinated a military coup overthrowing a democratically-elected regime under Salvador Allende and imposing the world's first genuinely neoliberal government under a junta headed by Augusto Pinochet. So okay here's the death toll:

How inconsiderate of Berta Cáceres to get herself assassinated while Hillary Clinton is running for President.

The Hillary trolls are at it again.

While the murder of Berta Cáceres is very tragic, according to the Hillary supporters, the real indecency is not that the U. S. government supports the government behind the death squads, no. The real indecency is that yours truly has dared to publish and link to the reporting of Democracy Now and that report included the words "U.S.-supported coup!" Hillary Clinton's name was not even mentioned.

From a Hillary supporter:

Again, using a diary giving information that everyone on this site will care about to trash Hillary Clinton is just not right. It is wrong. It is not decent.

And more outrage from Hillary supporter:

Nothing except talking about this person who is at great risk should be acceptable in this diary. I don’t know why you cannot understand this. Respect Gustavo Soto and talk about him. There are scores of diaries where you can diss Hillary Clinton. Many. This diary is not about this. This is not political. It is about humanity and a man who is in deep trouble.
