Venezuela Lurches Toward Dictatorship as Top Court Seizes Power (Coup in progress?)

Recommended Posts

High Court declared opposition-led Congress to be illegal

Court will execute powers while congress remains in contempt

Venezuela slid closer toward dictatorship after the country’s Supreme Court gutted the only opposition-run institution -- the Congress -- seizing its powers and declaring the elected body invalid.

The court’s ruling late on Wednesday night was, in the words of lawmakers, nothing short of a coup. Several opposition leaders called for street demonstrations and other forms of “democratic resistance.”

As the once-wealthy oil power descends into a chaos of hunger and crime, however, it remained far from clear whether the increasingly despondent population will view the court’s move as a genuine turning point or just another step in the nation’s bottoming out toward hopelessness.

“This is not only going to cause alarm for concern within the region, but also actions, and at this point, it will be very difficult for countries to remain neutral,” said Carlos Romero, a political scientist at the Central University of Venezuela in Caracas. “The government is provoking; not only has it not made a single gesture toward dialog, it has become completely entrenched.”

Opposition deputies said they would appeal to international bodies for help. But that may yield little. Two days before the court’s ruling, the Organization of American States met to urge Venezuela to respect the congress that has now been neutered.

The U.S. State Department condemned the Supreme Court’s decision on Thursday, saying the move "greatly damages Venezuela’s democratic institutions," according to a statement.

Who here remembers Live Aid ?   Why is no food being sent to Venezuela.....?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Live_Aid

Live Aid was a dual-venue concert held on 13 July 1985, and an ongoing music-based fundraising initiative. The original event was organised by Bob Geldof and Midge Ure to raise funds for relief of the ongoing Ethiopian famine. Billed as the "global jukebox", the event was held simultaneously at Wembley Stadium in London, England, United Kingdom (attended by 72,000 people) and John F. Kennedy Stadium in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States (attended by about 100,000 people).[1]

Ahh Socialism, the panacea of the people. 

It should be impossible to starve in that country with it's climate and massive growing seasons. Socialists will find a way though.

What are you saying? You want to hold another concert?

And what? Send guns to the Venezuelans?

I thought everyone knew about the Live Aid scam.

Bob Geldof is furious with the BBC for reporting that his charity unwittingly funded weapons for warlords. So what's the truth? Here Band Aid's man in Ethiopia tells his disturbing story.

So just what is the truth? And where did the money raised by Band Aid go?

Today, for the first time, the Band Aid man on the ground in Ethiopia speaks out exclusively to The Daily Mail, saying he believes it is possible that up to 20 per cent of donor's money went to fund the rebels.

Furthermore, he told me that he personally sympathised with the rebel cause he calls 'a liberating force', and travelled in convoys he suspected were transporting arms to them.

Could have! But ultimately it came down to one man. In the right hands nations flourish. Venezuela passed into the hands of bad people.

You are so correct, I have been there in the past when times were at all time highs and it was a fantastic country at that time and i watched as it became another notch on a rifle stock by our CIA.   It did not turn out as they intended, (IT SEEMS LIKE IT NEVER DOES!)  We and others combined have totally  destroyed so many countries and killed millions of people. I am so sick of what the NWO has done to the world and it is time for them to be removed. I would like to know how many have tried to do that and how close they got. There so many of us that feel like I do and so someone with enough funding is bound to have tried it, those figures would be VERY interesting.
