    Administration gives Guaido access to frozen Venezuela bank accounts

    Trump administration gives Venezuelan alternative president access to country's frozen U.S. bank accounts in bid to ratchet up pressure on Nicolas Maduro - after ordering Americans NOT to travel there

    The Trump administration took another step to ratchet up pressure on the Maduro regime in Venezuela, granting opposition leader Juan Guaido the ability to access the regime's frozen U.S. bank accounts.

    The State Department announced the move a day after the U.S. Treasury slapped sanctions on Venezuela's state-owned oil companies and set in place a system to freeze accounts that also could be placed under Guaido's control.

    Venezuela immediately hit back, with the nation's attorney general warning Guaido was not free to leave the country.

    That move drew yet another stern response from National Security Advisor John Bolton.

    'We denounce the illegitimate former Venezuelan Attorney General's threats against President Juan Guaido. Let me reiterate - there will be serious consequences for those who attempt to subvert democracy and harm Guaido,' Bolton tweeted.

    Amid the increasing tension, the State Department warned Americans against traveling to the nation, which is seeing a resurgence of street protests including deaths of demonstrators, and continuing chaos in the nation.

    Under the latest U.S. policy, Guaido, who declared himself the legitimate president of the country, can access accounts maintained by the government and the nation's central bank.

    Anti-vaxxers, responsible for a 30 percent uptick in totally preventable diseases in the world, have blood on their hands. They shouldn't be considered civilized members of society. If they refuse to listen to a century of scientific studies confirming time and time again that vaccination is an unquestionable good for humanity, then it's time for us to start treating anti-vaxxers as what they are: dangerous and worthy of shame and condemnation. If we can't convince anti-vaxxers to change their minds, we must attach enough social stigma to the delusion that agnostics cease to join them.

    Well, they don't want to develop negative connotations with the word "government," now do they?

    But what if I want to go to Venezuela? You can't just ban me from going somewhere because its dangerous. If I go somewhere like Venezuela and die, its no one elses fault but my own.

    Too bad Bolton could not find any courage to stand up against persecution and in for Assange, or Snowden, or Kiriakou, or Manning, or ...
