Venezuelans Face Rising Threat Of War.

by Jerry Alatalo

omeone famously (and accurately) described the February 2014 U.S.-planned coup in Ukraine, – which overthrew the democratically elected government of Victor Yanukovich and led to civil war – as the most obvious, blatant coup in world history.

People might remember the January 2019 U.S.-planned coup attempt in Venezuela as even more obvious.

In 2014 and Ukraine, the Obama/Clinton State Department and Victoria Nuland appointed the new president “Yats”, Arseniy Yatsenyuk, who shortly afterwards resigned and was replaced by Petro Poroshenko. Ms. Nuland, infamous for her “F@%k the EU!” and “Yats is the guy” unforgettable assertions – caught on an intercepted phone call which quickly went viral on the internet, spoke in front of a group of corporate energy bigs and noted the expenditure of $5,000,000,000 in U.S. taxpayer monies for Ukraine.

In 2019, U.S. Vice President Mike Pence named Juan Guaido the new president of Venezuela, Guaido swearing himself into office, and thus sharing with “Yats” the distinct achievement of appointment as leader of a government overthrown via illegal coup by the big boys from Washington, D.C.. Ukraine is, as the phrase goes, a “done deal”; Venezuelans can hopefully avoid repeating what happened in Ukraine: deadly, unnecessary civil war.

As yet, no Trump administration official has, like Ms. Nuland had done, shared the number of billions in taxpayers’ dollars spent on the effort to overthrow democratically elected President Nicolas Maduro of Venezuela, – however, one might estimate much more than $5 billion, given Venezuela possesses the largest oil reserves on planet Earth.

Whatever the number of $billions, John Bolton seems confident in the investment. He went on Fox News business media casually talking about U.S. oil corporations taking over Venezuela’s oil production, as if it were already a “done deal”.

Similarly, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is referring to Venezuela’s elected top politician as “former President Maduro”, as if the over six million people who voted for him and lifted him into the highest office (for the second time) no longer exist.

That Venezuela has stopped taking $ as payment and has influence in the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), and considering the possibility that OPEC nations could accelerate the trend of decreased use of U.S. dollars for oil purchases, people might get a better sense of why Donald Trump and his administration are so anxious to place Juan Guaido in the Venezuela big chair.

OPEC consists of Algeria, Angola, Ecuador, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Libya, Nigeria, Republic of the Congo, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates and Venezuela. Unfortunately for Americans, their governments have, – especially since the false flag of September 11, 2001 and intended over-17-year fraudulent “war of terror” – alienated much of the rest of the world, and severely tarnished America’s reputation, through implementing massively deadly war as the means of increasing business markets share and profits.

Like the alcohol-addicted men in small towns whose propensity for needlessly beating up others leads to their having to relocate … with reputation burnt up in the Middle East-North Africa region, Venezuela became the easily-predicted obvious next target for the Trump administration.

The people of Venezuela face the very real possibility of experiencing what the people of Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Ukraine and Yemen have become forced to endure since 9/11: the completely unnecessary nightmare of horrific war, violence, displacement, injury and destruction.

The sad part of the story is that 9/11 and all the human-tragedy, bogus “terrorist” wars of choice never needed to happen. Nations and corporations doing fair trade for reasonable profits while willing to follow international law and embracing non-intervention philosophy? …

Perhaps the United States of America can begin repairing with sincerity the self-inflicted damage to its global reputation. Perhaps not, but one thing is for certain.

The good people of Venezuela would greatly appreciate such a path in these days and nights of their overwhelming worry.

Peace.

Bill Browder Challenged In European Parliament.

by Jerry Alatalo

William Browder’s 7-hour deposition on April 15, 2015 uncovered many disturbing facts about his narrative of events as they relate to the death of Sergei Magnitsky, for whom the Magnitsky Act was named.

he long-lasting, seemingly impenetrable, indestructible scandal of hedge fund tax cheat Bill Browder – and Magnitsky Act economic warfare legislation he’s spearheading globally – may have suffered a fatal wound. Appearing before a European Union (EU) committee in recent days, Bill Browder was one of the panelists chosen to speak to the politicians about potential Magnitsky laws becoming written and implemented for the entire European Union.

An EU parliament member from France, Nicolas Bay, pushed Browder on documentary filmmaker and director Andrei Nekrasov’s “Magnitsky Act: Behind the Scenes”, which portrays the director’s journey from first believing Browder’s story of what happened to Browder’s “lawyer” (actually, his accountant) Sergei Magnitsky – to understanding Browder is a historic-magnitude fraud.

Mr. Bay suggested there is an unresolved controversy with regard to Browder’s narrative powerfully raised in Nekrasov’s highly-censored/blacklisted documentary, and pushed Browder for an explanation of why he seems intentionally avoiding a debate with Nekrasov. Tellingly Browder, – in what is likely a preconceived or prepared, well-thought-out response anticipated before the EU discussion should “Magnitsky Act: Behind the Scenes” and/or Nekrasov have become brought up – answers Mr. Bay with allegations of Bay’s “Russian involvement” and claims that Nekrasov put out a slander film on Browder for money.

Here are comments on the video of the EU discussion, the portion featuring Browder’s rare public confrontation engagement with May, posted on YouTube at ‘Nicholas Wilson’ channel:

“Guy acts like he’s above it all, right after admitting he went out of his way to prevent another man’s film being shown anywhere in the world. “Putin” and “Russia” are only a smear among those in power. Majority of the public don’t care. The Skripal story is a joke. The dead Russian journalist turned out to be a Ukrainian lie. Russia accused of influencing US election turned out to be an insignificant number of memes.

“Meanwhile, US declares its own un-elected puppet leader of Venezuela. France encourages protests in Venezuela while shooting, gassing and finding ways to prevent its own. And the U.K. demands an immediate election while denying one to its own people despite disaster after disaster. These, bankers, liars and hypocrites need to be exposed and never forgotten until they’re in prison for their crimes which have killed people.”

(Reply) “Amen.”

“Thanks for posting this. Con-man Bill Browder’s engaged in scams since, at least, the 1990s when under the wing of Edmond Safra. Safra’s Republic National Bank of New York (RNBoNY) and Beny Steinmetz bankrolled Hermitage in Moscow – with Browder up-front – in 1996. Following Safra’s death in Monaco in 1999, RNBoNY’s absorbed by HSBC. The Magnitsky hoax is a geopolitical scam – undone by the source documents (corporate, court, police+ filings). “The Magnitsky Act: Behind the Scenes”, the documentary of Andrei Nekrasov and Norway’s Oscar-nominated Piraya Film AS is a brilliant expose of Browder and reveals how this scam has been furthered by politicians, bureaucrats, press+ in Europe and America. Great to see Browder, and his hoax, is unraveling.”

“Thanks for the Browder background J’accuse. It really is a scam of MONUMENTAL proportions; the fact that the mainstream is studiously ignoring it just showcases how bankrupt the system is.”

(Reply) “This truly is a failure of the press. Con-men do what they do. Lying comes naturally to Browder and co. What’s missing is a functioning media to act as check-and-balance. I’ve been investigating white collar / organized crime since the 1980s (see https://jaccuse.news ). The networks being used in this current hoax pre-date con-man Browder – and they’ll post-date him. I’m hopeful this year we’ll see the truth exposed to enough of a global audience that Browder himself will lose his value to the criminal and political networks for which he’s fronting at present. With even more exposure, the corrupt enterprise itself may suffer greater structural dismantling. The world will be a better, safer, place with each step to shut down this operation.’

“Thanks for putting this on line, so everyone can hear his vile accusations with zero evidence.”

*

“Creepy Bill Browder is starting to come unhinged. In the last few days, he told Danske bank that the French had reopened an investigation, when they had not. Danske postponed a bond sale and the markets were sent into a spin. Then, just to make himself more popular, he accused members of the British House of Lords of money laundering, which while probably true, the fact that his bank of choice HSBC, settled a tax debt from one of Browder’s companies for tens of millions of dollars. Now this rant, its possible he is going to crash and burn, in which case it won’t be Putin who pays him a visit, but he might get Novichoked, and serve a purpose if Brexit falls apart.”

*

“Who is asking Browder the question? N Bey???? Trying to find his name…”

(Reply) “French Parliamentarian Monsieur Nicolas Bay, Député européen | Co-président du @GroupeENL | Président du groupe Rassemblement National au Conseil régional de Normandie.”

*

“Great to have a European Parliament member ask this crook a question. You can see that he is unable and unwilling to ‘engage’ – anyone who has seen the film sees very clearly how Nekrasov at first thought Browder was speaking the truth, and he slowly uncovers, to his own dismay, how Browder is a liar, misrepresents facts, and organized a major heist against the Russian state. Browder was supported here by Guy Verhofstadt, a guy who in this way showed his colors fully as well as totally owned by money-laundering banks such as HSBC.”

How much longer can the enormously important, global-consequence Bill Browder-Magnitsky Act scandal remain concealed and survive?
