Think back to all the celebs and other useful idiots who lauded President Chavez’s socialist revolution, which led to the destruction and ruin of Venezuela, as all socialist revolutions do. The horror that the people of Venezuela have endured is ignored by the left. Worse, they want it to continue. Vile jihadi Jew-hater Ilhan Omar, new face of the new Nazi party, the Democrats, supports the world’s worst economic-cum-humanitarian disaster and opposes helping the people of Venezuela.
Hundred of thousands have taken to the streets to protest Maduro’s regime in the past week. Amid the furor, opposition leader Juan Guaidó has declared himself president, prompting declarations of support from the United States, United Kingdom and most of Latin America, and calls for new elections.
Last week, the White House recognized Juan Guaido, Venezuelan leader Nicolas Maduro’s main political opponent, as the country’s interim president. Trump agreed with the Venezuelan National Assembly’s recent decision to declare Maduro’s election was illegitimate, which is was, but it’s how the left seizes control. “Today, I am officially recognizing the President of the Venezuelan National Assembly, Juan Guaido, as the Interim President of Venezuela,” Trump said in a statement at the time.
The Associated Press reports that Trump and Guaido also agreed to regular communication to support Venezuela’s path back to stability and to rebuild the relationship between the two nations.
Ilhan Omar Opposes Sanctions on Venezuela
Venezuela continues to be the world’s worst economic-cum-humanitarian disaster. The economic policies of the Maduro administration have largely been an attempt to replicate the socialist welfare policies of late Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez, who presided over the country at a time……
TEL AVIV – Venezuela’s self-proclaimed interim leader Juan Guaido thanked Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for recognizing his government on Sunday.
In a tweet thanking the Israeli leader, Guaido made a comparison between his own political journey and the Holocaust.
“Seventy-four years ago, the Auschwitz concentration camp was liberated, and today, just as our country is also fighting for its freedom, we thank the Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu for the recognition and the support,” Guaido wrote.
“Israel joins the United States, Canada, most of the countries of Latin America and countries in Europe in recognizing the new leadership in Venezuela,” Netanyahu said.
Last week, the Trump administration allegedly requested that Israel publicly endorse the U.S.’s efforts to force Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro to resign and to back Guaido as the interim president.
Israel reportedly demurred, fearing that enraging Maduro could endanger members of the 6,000-strong Venezuelan Jewish community.
After Sunday’s recognition, U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman lauded Jerusalem for “standing with the people of Venezuela and the forces of freedom and democracy.”
Trump’s special Mideast envoy, Jason Greenblatt, also praised Israel for its “courageous stand in solidarity with the Venezuelan people.”
At the United Nations on Saturday, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called on the international community to put a stop to Venezuela’s “nightmare” and start supporting Guaido.
“Now is the time for every other national to pick a side,” Pompeo told the Security Council. “No more delays, no more games. Either you stand with the forces of freedom, or you’re in league with Maduro and his mayhem.”
Pompeo named American diplomat Elliott Abrams as the Trump administration’s new special envoy to Venezuela. Pompeo described Abrams as a “seasoned, principled, and tough-minded foreign policy veteran.” He said Abrams will be responsible “for all things related to our efforts to restore democracy in Venezuela.”
Abrams, a veteran of the Bush and Reagan administrations, is known for his pro-Israel views and is close to Netanyahu.
Senior Palestine Liberation Organization official Ahmad Majdalani decried the Trump administration’s support of Guaido, saying it was “an extension of the Trump administration’s policy of denying the will of peoples.”
