‘Willing Pawns in Trump-Orchestrated Coup’: CODEPINK Disrupts Venezuela’s Illegitimate ‘US Ambassador’

Ben Norton

Anti-war activists disrupted an event in Washington, DC featuring Carlos Vecchio, the illegitimate “US ambassador” appointed by Venezuela’s right-wing coup regime and its Trump-selected leader Juan Guaidó.

Hi Roberto: yes Mr Abrams is very scorpion - like, and with a killer sting too!
However, the Venezuelan man who spoke after Medea, was very strange when he said that if he tried to do this in Venezuela, he could be killed. Wow same here in America for many groups of people----although if Medea had done this speech at a DEM meeting she would no doubt have been wrestled to the floor and beaten, like the VIPS man was for turning his back on the Hillary.

HI GoebbelsSez-----yes he was going for a coup, but it seems like America, the press and the politicians would rather shoot and attack the winners of the actual elections. Since Guaido was trained by the CIA, how can America fein innocence? : (

Thank you Code Pink.

There is so much to clean up in this country. There is a task for Every single person of majority (years not politics) in our communities and regions. Enough of the planned obsolescence, addiction to constant growth and polluting with shit that is not needed.

What would things look like if we bought only necessities, conscientiously foster and patronize our local producers first, even incubate small ‘cottage’ industries to produce any number of things, public banking, co-ops. All the possibilities necessary and make recycling the centerpiece to replace extraction… yes it sounds way different - but in the long run, this empire is going to bite the dust.

Stop having children for two generations - or with even just one child, the population would drop 40% in one generation. We really might want to start thinking in terms that are very different from the tech obsessed garbage.

…Or as candidate Jill Stein was handcuffed to a chair for 8 hours in an auditorium to prevent entering room of a presidential debate.

Funny how the Venezuelan opposition, including Vecchio’s violence-fomenting ‘Popular Will’ party, gets away with holding demonstrations and calling for a military revolt. If the Green Party was associated with assassination attempts and coup plotting in the U.S., Jill Stein would likely be locked up for a lot more than eight hours.

With the U. S. in full coup fomenting mode, there can be no negotiating with these traitors. They have no intention of talking as long as they have U. S. muscle behind them. If Maduro is to survive, and I keep saying this, he must violently put down the coup with the military, seize the traitors, starting with Guaido and everyone immediately around him, and summarily execute them by firing squad on live TV to show that it’s over and done and the next f#$kers who try to start something will end up with the same fate. And any U. S. officials who show up down there (like Abrams) will be arrested for espionage and executed as well. In the case of Abrams, he deserves to be shot for his lifetime of running death squads and coups in Latin America that have resulted in the deaths of tens of thousands of innocent civilians.

HI Earthbound…OMG, this is like Jack London’s IRONHEEL, where the the elected are depleting the intellectuals and the teachers and professors, and the Middle class disappears------and there are 2 classes only : the rich and the enforcers…although the ending of the novels is up in the air---- so I guess WE the People have to supply the ending. : )
Did the handcuffs on Jill Stein have any negative response from the media?

Nary a peep, swept under the rug , no major news story. Absolutely crazy, a presidential candidate on the ballot in almost all states, arrested on trumped up charge of blocking traffic in a parking lot, handcuffed for hours, Yes, Iron Heel is correct.

Doing so will just give America the excuse they crave to go in guns blazing for “humanitarian” reasons.
In fact, the apparent bungling of this blatant coup may have been intended to provoke that very response.
There is more money to be made from an actual war than a coup after all.
