President Barack Obama announced that U.S. Imperialism is still alive and swaggering in the Americas yesterday.
Let's look at the Venezuela Executive Order Fact Sheet issued yesterday by the White House.
We are declaring economic war on Venezuela, and are presumably ready to foment a civil war or coup there, because: they are not democratic enough. They do not respect civil rights enough for Obama and crew.
Of course, we'll do business with Saudi Arabia, and U.S. puppet regimes and even Texas, but we can't be having politicians who were not pre-selected by the U.S. being voted into power, and actually exercising power, in Venezuela.
What are these evil Venezuelans accused of? Why corruption. None of that in Washington, D.C. or any of our client states around the world.
Undermining the democratic process. Barack does not like that ... in Venezuela. Which does not include actions like when the young Obama kept Republicans off the ballot by legal challenges. Or Hillary Clinton's back-door fundraising.
"Actions that prohibit, limit, or penalize the exercise of freedom of expression," which I suppose they don't have a Citizen's United ruling that rich people can spend unlimited money to influence elections.
What happened to the old international model of intervention? Did John Kerry count heads at the U.N. and decide we just didn't have the votes to impose our (the U.S. elite's) will that way?
This is yet another reminder of why I am not a member of the Democratic Party. The party of slavery and the Vietnam War. A party of putrid pig parts.
Isn't targeting particular politicians and officials of a sovereign country exactly a policy that undermines democratic processes or institutions?
Here's an idea: let's all the people of the world who are peaceful stop doing business with Barack Obama and his corrupt pals like Hillary "I am not my husband" Clinton and John "I forgot what I learned in Vietnam" Kerry. War criminals all.
I can hear the democratic donkeys braying: but the Republicans!
Sure, the Republicans are soul sucking zombies who would crash the American economy again while demanding we worship Christ the Vampire.
I don't care any more. I'd like to destroy both parties, but if the Democrats have to go first, that is fine with me.
I don't want a just a decent independent or third-party candidate for President to vote for in 2016. I want every election for every office to give voters a real choice. And I want the Democrats and Republicans to lose, and then to be prosecuted for their past crimes.
U.S. hands off Venezuela! Let's use our hands to clean up the United States of America.
