Venezuelans who can make it to safety outside of Venezuela should go. Sadly, that is the truth that must, in all honesty, be told.
You can’t get water, medicine, food? Flee. You can’t find safety from looters? Get out. You are at risk of being imprisoned by the military junta? Get out. As the resistance to Maduro’s military junta increases, the well-equipped military and para-military will turn all its weapons on the civilians. Get out now if you can.
Ironically that is the same life-saving advice RINJ gave Moslawis in 2014-2016.
Leave carefully, invisibly and fast. Everything you do must be aligned to this goal. Worry less about where you are going and more about surviving at each moment. You are going to rely on other people once you are out. Make a white flag. Stick it in a pocket. It is the international symbol of no-conflict.
Sometimes when a journo learns something and comes to “know it” regardless of being able to “prove it”, and when that thing threatens millions of lives, should they report what they cannot prove, like deja vu?
- Someone should tell the people of Venezuela the truth about what the cards are saying: Mega-War.
- The sortie distance from Caracas and Miami is less than the distance America is traveling to bomb in Syria.
- In 30 minutes Russian/Venezuelan SU30Mk2s would have the Muñiz Air Base in Puerto Rico for launching attacks against the USA. America would need to attack and risk the citizens of Puerto Rico to take that back.
- Unquestionably, the meddling inside Venezuela of Cuba, Nicaragua, Bolivia, Russia, China and a rogue Turkish leadership is anti-American more than it is pro-Venezuela. Were that not true, Venezuela would not be starving.
- Russia has been grooming Venezuela as a platform from which to attack the United States in a surrogacy action to cripple the US government.
- Remembering the unmitigated national destruction Boris Nikolayevich Yeltsin did to Russia, step one in the aggressive anti-America strategy was to get elected a very polarizing, egotistical and malleable President, someone like Yeltsin whose own Vice President Alexander Rutskoy described as an “economic genocidal clown”, a buffoon who would do anything to have that kind of power. And Donald Trump came along.
- Russia has the best PSYOP departments in the world which without too much in the way of effort has America in a pre-civil-war state. America has been self-destructing.
- The people running Venezuela with the brutal force of military and paramilitary oppression, Diosdado Cabello, Tareck el Aissami, Cilia Flores de Maduro, Nicolás Maduro Guerra, and Nicolás Maduro Moros, do not have the competence to even be elected “dog catchers” in most democracies. They are Putin marionettes.
- Russia has armed Venezuela with significant air defence; pre-positioned nuclear-weapons-capable aircraft launch and recovery support; and is selling extreme next-generation airborne weapons platforms to the Hugo Chavez wannabe Maduro.
The Attacks on Juan Guaidó sound like Russian LawFare
But “Cowardly, miserable and murderous regime” are the words of Juan Guaidó, the lawful President of Venezuela when the past-president who refused to leave office when his time was up in January, Nicolás Maduro’s appointed illegal officials removed Parliamentary immunity for Mr. Guaido.
Juan Guaidó is the elected president of the Venezuelan National Assembly. He is also an elected representative of the Venezuelan state of Vargas.
The Venezuelan interim President’s reaction was to say that Maduro was leading a “Cowardly, miserable and murderous regime,” and that he would continue to fight for the people of Venezuela for freedom from the onerous dictatorship of Maduros, propped up by Russia.
That’s another matter. Russia is selling weapons to Maduro of Venezuela, a brutal dictatorship that has mined its population for every piece of gold, even taking it from the teeth of the people it has imprisoned then killed, says a mortuary worker who does not wish to be identified but is close to one of the many thousands of RINJ Foundation Women in Venezuela.
Donald Trump needs to Grow a Pair and Stand Up to Putin. The USA is in serious trouble. Going to war against the infiltrators of Venezuela is no longer an option, it is essential to the future of the Western Hemisphere.
Of late, the ordinary people of the world have been compelled by force of brutality to accept the bullying of despotic leaders. Venezuela is the straw to break the camel’s back.
Recep Erdogan, Bashar al-Assad, Vladimir Putin, Miguel Díaz-Canel, Evo Morales and Daniel Ortega are not good men. These are the friends of Diosdado Cabello, Tareck el Aissami, Cilia Flores de Maduro, Nicolás Maduro Guerra, and Nicolás Maduro Moros. These are the people who have kept the Maduro Junta alive.
Recep Erdogan, Bashar al-Assad, Vladimir Putin, Miguel Díaz-Canel, Evo Morales and Daniel Ortega, hate America.
They don’t love Venezuela and they do not see themselves bailing out this bottomless money pit with its outrageously collapsed infrastructure and economy. The areas wherein the Chavez/Maduro regimes have siphoned the nation’s wealth are still yet to be exposed. But the health care system, power generation and distribution, water treatment, roads and bridges, sewage, food distribution and law enforcement have all collapsed. Looting is everywhere. Patients are dying BECAUSE THEY WENT TO A HOSPITAL.
Recep Erdogan, Bashar al-Assad, Vladimir Putin, Miguel Díaz-Canel, Evo Morales and Daniel Ortega — none of these people is acting in the interest of the people of Venezuela but instead are part of the plundering of the country, stupidly backing the wet dreams of an old old man running the Kremlin. Putin’s swan song will be a decimating firestorm across the Western Hemisphere, more importantly the destruction of the North from the South.
Recep Erdogan, Bashar al-Assad, Vladimir Putin, Miguel Díaz-Canel, Evo Morales and Daniel Ortega are in Venezuela up to their eyebrows and must be cleaned out.
It Will Be an Ugly War
At some point the people of the world, the ordinary people, must say that enough is enough. The rapes, murders, attacks on the press, the disappearances, detentions, torture… enough is enough. The tolerance lines are crossed. Yes, war and even death is better than the complete loss of freedom by ordinary people to ruthless men without a conscience.
We don’t need or want the likes of Recep Erdogan, Bashar al-Assad, Vladimir Putin, Miguel Díaz-Canel, Evo Morales and Daniel Ortega.
Cuba has roughly a thousand troops in Venezuela. They have been around for some time and are ruthless gangsters who have robbed medical supplies The RINJ Foundation has brought into the country, among other misconducts.
It goes on and on. Recep Erdogan, Bashar al-Assad, Vladimir Putin, Miguel Díaz-Canel, Evo Morales and Daniel Ortega are just a few of the people with their hands in the Venezuelan cash register.
Russia has been selling Maduros a wack of military equipment, $billions worth that the Kremlin believes suitable for building a weaponized puppet against the United States.
What Vladimir Putin and his colleagues in the Kremlin have is a stupid flunky, Nicolás Maduro, to arm his country as a surrogate to Russia in a future war against the United States.
With his sins Maduros is extremely easy to blackmail and manipulate by Putin. The blind, toxic greed of Diosdado Cabello, Tareck el Aissami, Cilia Flores de Maduro, Nicolás Maduro Guerra, who actually run the Maduro Junta are so deep into the pockets of Russia there is no coming back for them. They either tow the Kremlin line or their brains become a pink mist.
War is imminent. Make no mistake about it.
Vladimir Putin’s greed coupled with a villainous strategy with sinister intent against the people of the Western Hemisphere has assured the worst.
Venezuela has drawn to itself some of the worst scum on Earth. Recep Erdogan, Bashar al-Assad, Vladimir Putin, Miguel Díaz-Canel, Evo Morales and Daniel Ortega.
The greatest gift to mankind would be to put all of these thugs in a single room together with a few others. If that didn’t attract a lightning bolt, nothing could.
Sorry Mr. Guaidó but you are not much more than a distraction decoy to the Machiavellian antics of Diosdado Cabello, Tareck el Aissami, Cilia Flores de Maduro, Nicolás Maduro Guerra, Nicolás Maduro Moros, Recep Erdogan, Bashar al-Assad, Vladimir Putin, Miguel Díaz-Canel, Evo Morales and Daniel Ortega.
The aim of Maduro’s scared and oppressed lawfare officials is to arrest President Juan Guaidó for leaving the country to confer with the American Vice-President, Mike Pence and President Iván Duque Márquez of Colombia.
Hopefully at least Mike Pence is preparing to give the “kill or capture” order against the ‘evildoers’ who are destroying tens of millions of ordinary lives as an exchange for lining their own purses.
In the meantime, Venezuelans who can make it to safety outside of Venezuela should go. Sadly, that is the truth that must, in all honesty, be told.

This is how it is
Vice President Mike Pence, President Juan Guaido of Venezuela, and President Iván Duque Márquez of Colombia confered together on February 25, 2019 in Colombia. The illegal Military Junta dictatorship of Nicolás Maduro’s Cartel of the Suns wants to kidnap President Juan Guaido for having exercised his Universal Human Right to travel and confer with any persons of his choosing. That cannot stand. Maduro must be apprehended to prevent this crime.
The Venezuelan Military and or Para-Military needs to step up to the rule of law and shut down this hierarchy of crime or eventually face the wrath of the world and maybe a firing squad or the gallows.
Don’t forget Nuremberg. Eventually the citizens of the world speak aloud with a strong collective voice.
This is also how it is.
|The delegations of Argentina, Bahamas, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Guatemala, Honduras, Haiti, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, and the United States reaffirm the right of the peoples of the Americas to democracy and the obligation of their governments to promote and defend it, as established in Article I of the Inter-American Democratic Charter.
We ratify the constitutional authority of the democratically elected National Assembly of Venezuela, and strongly support their actions to request international humanitarian aid, release political prisoners, freeze the assets of corrupt government officials and provide guarantees for civil and military officials in support of the National Assembly in the restoration of democracy and the rule of law in Venezuela.
In this context, we recognize and express our full support to the President of the National Assembly, Juan Guaidó who has assumed the role of Interim President of the Republic of Venezuela, in accordance with Venezuelan constitutional norms and due to the illegitimacy of the Nicolas Maduro regime.
We firmly believe in the restoration of representative democracy in Venezuela through a peaceful, orderly process led by the interim President, that includes free, fair, transparent elections, with international electoral observation, in the shortest possible time, in accordance with the Venezuelan Constitution, the Charter of the Organization of American States and the Inter-American Democratic Charter.
We reaffirm the illegitimacy of the presidential elections of May 20, 2018 because they lacked the necessary guarantees to be a free, fair, transparent, legitimate and credible process, failing to meet the minimally accepted international standards.
We regret and strongly condemn the repressive actions of the Maduro regime against the Venezuelan people, as well as the actions of the Maduro regime that have caused an economic collapse, forcing millions of Venezuelans to leave Venezuela in search of food, basic medicines and opportunities in other countries in the region.
We demand guarantees of security and protection for the Interim President Juan Guaidó and the members of the National Assembly.
We strongly call for respect for the jurisdiction and rights of the National Assembly legislators as well as the rights of all, to exercise, without limitations, the duties legitimately entrusted to them by the people of Venezuela. In this regard, we support the National Assembly to continue working to restore democracy in Venezuela through ways and means necessary to support a peaceful transition in the interest of the Venezuelan people and achieve stability and prosperity for all Venezuelans.
We support the ratification of Venezuela’s commitment to the OAS Charter and its willingness to continue as a full member of this Organization.

Lamentamos y condenamos enérgicamente las acciones represivas del régimen de Maduro en contra del pueblo venezolano, así como las acciones que han provocado un colapso económico forzando a millones de venezolanos a salir de Venezuela en búsqueda de alimentos, medicamentos básicos y una oportunidad de vida en otros países de la región.
Demandamos que se garantice la seguridad y la protección del Presidente encargado, Juan Guaidó, y de los miembros de la Asamblea Nacional.
Hacemos un llamado vehemente para que se respete el fuero de la Asamblea Nacional así como los derechos de todos sus integrantes a ejercer, sin limitaciones, las atribuciones que les fueron encomendadas legítimamente por el pueblo de Venezuela. En este sentido, respaldamos a la Asamblea Nacional para que continúe trabajando con el fin de que Venezuela retorne al camino democrático a través de los medios y formas necesarios para apoyar la transición pacífica en el interés del pueblo venezolano y alcanzar la ansiada estabilidad y prosperidad para todos los venezolanos.
