it's easy to blame socialism or corruption,
but find out what the real cause is,
and how Venezuela
is being subverted.
Many articles in both the Alternative and Mainstream Media are quick to judge the Venezuelan economic crisis without a deeper investigation.
Yes, we are opposed to socialism since it is a form of collectivism which places more value on the needs of the abstract group than the needs of the individual, and carries out the forced redistribution of wealth through taxation (which basically equates to the systemized theft of one part of society to, in theory, help another).
However, many systems of government (not just socialism) do exactly the same thing, no matter whether they are "left" or "right".
Besides, the chief cause of Venezuela's ills has little do with its economic system, which is not purely socialist but rather a mixture of 3 aspects (communal, state and private).
The problem is that it continues to be targeted from the outside, by the USA, who is taking active steps on many fronts to subvert the existing government and install U.S.-friendly puppets instead.
It's the same old game of regime change which the U.S. has been orchestrating literally all over the world since the end of WWII.
Venezuela has over 298 billion barrels of proven oil reserves, the largest recognized volume in the world.
According to the 2016 figures from the U.S. EIA (Energy Information Administration), the U.S. imports 800,000 barrels of oil per day from Venezuela.
Getting oil from a South or Central American nation is less risky and much faster for the U.S. than transporting it from the dangerous and war-stricken Middle East.
However, it does not sit well with the U.S. that a nation in South America (the backyard of its Empire) like Venezuela can prosper as a sovereign socialist republic.
The U.S. and its multinational corporations want a big slice of the pie of the gasoline profits, which Venezuela under Chavez and Maduro have refused to give.
As self-confessed economic hitman John Perkins described decades ago in books, presentations and interviews, when a "recalcitrant" nation fails to play ball with the U.S., it activates its various branches to rein them in - the intelligence agencies, the NGOs, the "jackals" (assassins) and, if all else fails, then the U.S. military itself.
Funding the Venezuelan Opposition
I have covered in previous articles (such as NGOs - Choice Tool of Subversion for the New World Order) the dangers of the soft power complex of U.S. NGOs, also called the non-profit industrial complex.
Guess what? The NGO network is at it again when it comes to the Venezuelan economic crisis. This time, they are actively subverting the Maduro government by funding and arming the opposition.
Peter Koenig writes the following in his article Why is Venezuela in the White House's Crosshairs?
Koenig actually heard firsthand the Venezuelan Ambassador to Switzerland speak to an audience:
Venezuelan Economic Crisis and Regime Change
Foretold by Brookings (NWO Think Tank) and Orchestrated by NED (Soros NGO)
The clues are there if you look with care.
The Venezuelan economic crisis has been basically predicted and advocated by the Brookings Institute.
As Tony Cartalucci points out in his article U.S. Policymakers Openly Plot Against Venezuela, the Brookings website features an article Venezuela - A path out of crisis which recommends a 5-point destabilization plan:
If you run this through the Orwellian translation unit, it means use the soft power complex of NGOs to overthrow Maduro and orchestrate regime change.
Enter the IMF - the institutional loan shark that economic hitman John Perkins exposed.
The so-called Venezuelan opposition is made up of,
Formerly on RT, and current Empire Files host Abby Martin, returned from Venezuela in June 2017.
She gave a firsthand account of how the Venezuelan opposition were attempting to intimidate reporters so as to control the narrative and give a false impression of what was happening.
Cyber and Currency Manipulation out of Miami Also a Factor in the Venezuelan Economic Crisis
Another aspect to the U.S. attack on Venezuela is coming out of Miami, Florida, in the form of a website called DolarToday which, according to Venezuelan President Maduro, is an attempt to sabotage the Venezuelan Bolívar:
In above video, Abby interviewed the Venezuelan Minister of Economic Planning, Ricardo Menéndez.
He elaborates on the deliberate U.S. attack on the Venezuelan currency:
He later remarks how food supplies and the state of the economy are used as a political weapon to disturb the Venezuelan psyche and unseat the government.
Knock knock Venezuela:
guess who's coming?
Conclusion - Venezuelan Economic Crisis is About Seeding Regime Change
The truth is that the Venezuelan economic crisis is all about regime change, which itself is all about the Anglo-American-Zionist New World Order expanding its economic and military empire to turn all other nations into vassal states.
The most recent bill in Congress earmarks $9,500,000 for (cough cough) "democracy promoting activities" for Venezuela.
If you don't realize what that means by now, take a look at the U.S.-installed Neo-Nazis in Ukraine who were brought into power with NGOs in line with the regime change agenda.
Funny how this regime change agenda is always window dressed with the rhetoric of human rights and democracy promotion.
The U.S. has a long history of regime change in South America, a famous example of which is the 1973 CIA coup in Chile which brought military dictator Pinochet to power.
As Kevin Zeese and Margaret Flowers note,
It's time we went beyond blaming Venezuelan socialism or corruption for what is going on, and realized that U.S. sanctions, economic sabotage and political subversion are the real reason for the Venezuelan economic crisis.
