This one has appeared very "Keystone Cops", however, so I must look at what other aims it could have. The appearance of Chinese military in VZ, at the invitation of Maduro, is a big clue and fits with the ongoing narrative of "Trump" driving other countries into the arms of China, which is also a key point toward perception management of how the dollar loses global reserve standard. IOW, the people of VZ embrace the Chinese as their savior from the big bad US that's hell bent on toppling their beloved Maduro. Regime change ops are really much more about controlling the perceptions of the populations of those countries via control of the leaders. Topple the leader, replace with a puppet, then have puppet sell the new paradigm to the population...important since the oil ain't gonna pump itself or the gold won't dig itself out of the mine. In the instance of VZ, the proposed puppet isn't ideologically different than the current leader so one must ask what the point is?
    You're no dummy, what's going on here is obvious to anyone with a brain. There were a couple articles a few days ago claiming that the coup was set in motion prematurely because the head of the intelligence service was to be arrested for treason later that morning, and had gotten wind of it. Yes, it's a standard NWO regime change operation (with the additional motive of oil, as bolton admits), but the playbook has been updated to include cyber warfare, attacks on civilian infrastructure, and a more comprehensive propaganda campaign.

    But here is where the mask comes off, leaving no doubt as to what the propagandists here are shylling for. This is about trump's NWO foreign policy, and nothing else, it is not about socialism, Maduro, or whatever. Note the tactics of the shylls. They attempt to use the standard tactic of arguing the meanings of words whose definitions are self evident, such as traitor. They argue that this is not an NWO agenda, despite the people involved that trump hired, can fire at will, and whose every action is signed off on by trump. The claim here is that only bankers are the NWO, and that it doesn't include political figures, despite many various political figures attending their little globalist meetings alongside the bankers and CEO's. abrams, bolton, hello? And of course the biggest instigator in the Senate is mister "New American Century" himself, The Rube. Hello? How many ways can you spell NWO? The shylls even use The Ghoul's argument that to support Ron Paul on foreign policy is somehow blaming America first and being in favor of socialism! Then there's the claim that a foreign head of state that was fairly elected and re-elected is a dictator who must be overthrown (again, standard NWO playbook), but dictatorships like Saudi Arabia are our good buddies and helping them attack their neighbors is no big deal (not to mention other oppressive elected regeimes such as Israel).

    What's so amusing is that the shylls will claim that they somehow don't support this NWO regime change foreign policy, then go on to openly oppose Ron Paul and cheerlead for it and their Authoritarian Idol. Ron Paul has clearly and repeatedly mentioned that sanctions are an act of war, yet it is argued that trump continuing obomba's NWO foreign policy in Velezuela is somehow ok because of socialism, even complete with a chart worthy of zip. Again, it's obvious to anyone with a brain that socialist and communist economies with too much central planning will collapse on their own, and there are many historical examples of that (USSR empire, Vietnam, etc, etc), in addition to comparative economic conditions in countries with "softer" socialism such as Canada and France. Central economic planning is bad and always fails, so what? Some other country's economy failing is no excuse for trump's NWO foreign policy, and no excuse to directly oppose Ron Paul. Ron Paul says that foreign policy should be according to the Golden Rule, yet the shylls will cheerlead for kicking someone when they're down, then claim that opposing this is to support socialism or blaming America (complete with a chart worthy of zippy, lol).

    Then there's the shylls' obsession with immigrants. They claim that trump is doing such a wonderful job by expanding the big government police state under the guise of keeping immigrants out, then turn around and shyll for trump's NWO foreign policy that creates more immigrants, that the trump administration openly states that they then want to give "economic aid" to! In their direct opposition to Ron Paul and shylling for trump, it's impossible for them to not contradict themselves at every turn. If they are against immigration (never mind giving "economic aid" to immigrants) as they claim, and are against trump's NWO foreign policy as they claim, then they can either prove it by stopping the shylling and directly denouncing their Authoritarian Idol, or continue to directly oppose Ron Paul. They also claim to be against asset forfeiture, but say nothing about trump attempting to seize the assets of an entire foreign government and their administration officials. But of course they will never denounce their Authoritarian Idol, since they're obviously being paid to shyll for him with their 34+ posts here per day. They will only continue attempting to argue over the definitions of common words and accuse genuine Ron Paul supporters of somehow supporting socialism. They will continue to directly oppose Ron Paul by cheerleading for that long list of sanctions (acts of war), executive orders (hey, trump has a pen and a phone, just like obomba!), and trump's NWO regime change foreign policy. In doing so, they finally drop their mask, and their direct and open opposition to Ron Paul becomes obvious. Again, it's not about socialism. It's not about Maduro. It's about trump's NWO foreign policy of regime change, and nothing more. Trying to make it about anything else is only yet another attempt to sell us their turd sandwich.

    And here comes the seizure of the embassy

    https://www.rt.com/news/459260-venez...ngton-seizure/
    Pro-Maduro activists occupying the Venezuelan embassy in Washington have refused to vacate the premises in defiance of a notice threatening them with arrest and police entering the building but stopping short of evicting everyone.
    At least four embassy ‘protectors’ have remained inside the building and could be seen through the windows – even after police entered and left, apparently stopping short of forcefully evicting everyone - for now.
    http://www.radiohc.cu/en/noticias/in...bassy-building
    Earlier on Monday evening, Washington D.C. police broke the padlocks to the main entrance of the embassy to deliver an eviction notice.

    The four US pro-Venezuela activists inside the building have not acknowledged receipt of the notice.

    What must be understood is that the "New World Order" calls for China and Russia to be higher on the totem pole than the US. The US (financially and militarily...but the former begets the latter) has mainly been a tool for advancing that agenda. The bankers and their controllers are not American nor do they care one iota about Americans.

    Like you?!?

    This network is obsessively fixated on the supposed spread of Muslim influence in America. Its apparatus spans continents, extending from Tea Party activists here to the European far right. It brings together in common cause right-wing ultra-Zionists, Christian evangelicals, and racist British soccer hooligans. It reflects an aggressively pro-Israel sensibility, with its key figures venerating the Jewish state as a Middle Eastern Fort Apache on the front lines of the Global War on Terror and urging the U.S. and various European powers to emulate its heavy-handed methods.

    Little of recent American Islamophobia (with a strong emphasis on the “phobia”) is sheer happenstance. Years before Tea Party shock troops massed for angry protests outside the proposed site of an Islamic community center in lower Manhattan, representatives of the Israel lobby and the Jewish-American establishment launched a campaign against pro-Palestinian campus activism that would prove a seedbed for everything to come.
    (...)

    By now, the Islamophobic crusade has gone beyond the right-wing pro-Israel activists, cyber-bigots, and ambitious hucksters who conceived it. It now belongs to leading Republican presidential candidates, top-rated cable news hosts, and crowds of Tea Party activists.

    Remember when people in another country invaded our embassy and kidnapped people? If this behavior is so horrible, then why is the US government doing the same thing? So much for Ron Paul's foreign ploicy of the Golden Rule.

    https://sputniknews.com/us/201905161...assy-activist/
    Activists inside the Venezuelan Embassy in Washington were arrested by the Department of State with the assistance of the US Secret Service, a spokesman has confirmed to Sputnik.

    Code Pink activist Ariel Gold told Sputnik that there were no activists or press representatives near the Venezuelan Embassy when the US authorities detained the remaining four activists who were protecting the facility in Washington from any attempt by the United States to seize control of Venezuela's diplomatic mission.

    "Nobody was at the scene at the time, no other activists and no press. By the time we arrived, you can see that the building and the entire scene looks empty", Gold said. "So, we don't have any idea if they are still in fact carrying out the arrest inside, if they are being hauled out the back […] or if our friends are in fact already now in police custody".

    She added that they got a phone call from one of the activists that were inside, Kevin Zeese, who told them that police were breaking into the building.

    "Adrienne Pine, who is also inside the building, put out a tweet saying they are breaking down the door", she said.

    https://www.rt.com/news/459511-polic...an-embassy-dc/
    In clear violation of international law, police broke into Venezuela’s embassy in Washington DC, arresting activists invited by staff. They prevented the building from being seized by US-backed coup leader Juan Guaido’s people.

    After spending over a month camped out in the embassy, the final four activists of the Venezuelan Embassy Protection Collective have been placed under arrest after police broke down doors and entered the premises on Thursday.

    Photos of the raid show heavily armed police with battering rams, cutting tools and body armor surrounding the building.
    Shortly after the break-in, an ambulance arrived at the scene and a gurney was wheeled inside. It is still unclear who needed the help and why.

    http://www.radiohc.cu/en/noticias/in...-washington-dc
    U.S. security forces broke into the Venezuelan Embassy in Washington, DC Thursday morning and arrested four members of the Embassy Protection Collective. The announcement was made by the organization and confirmed by their attorney, Mara Verheyden-Hilliard, who affirmed that such action violates several articles of the Vienna Convention and is a total violation of international law.

    Reports described the scene at the diplomatic mission, with heavily armed DC police officers and Secret Service forces gathered at the back entrance. According to teleSUR, authorities dressed in military gear took up position in the embassy's basement where there are no surveillance cameras. This allowed U.S. authorities to make the arrests out of the site of the public and the media.

    Jose Pertierra, an international law expert, said this tactic of trying to remove the protectors through the basement was being done "in order to avoid a war of images where they can have police act without the public seeing them." Pertierra added that this security force operation violates international law that prohibits a host nation from invading the sovereign territory of another country’s embassy. The legal expert said the protesters who were arrested will likely sue the U.S. administration, "which is not in the interest of the government."

    Venezuela Peace Talks Open In Norway; US Neocons Raging Mad!

    May 16 - The last time negotiations were planned between Venezuelan government and opposition forces, opposition leader (and US puppet) Guaido launched his ill-fated coup and the talks were scuttled. Today a new effort, brokered by Norway, is being launched to solve the conflict without further bloodshed. What kind of monkey wrench will the neocons throw into the mix this time?

    "The meeting with the International Contact Group to inform them about the consequences of the blockade and sanctions on the part of the US empire against Venezuela," the caption for the video, published on Maduro’s Twitter late on Thursday, read.
    An anchorperson said in the video, recorded by the VTV broadcaster, that the high-level meeting had been held for the first time and had included the representatives of Germany, France, Italy, Portugal, Spain and the Netherlands.

    Meanwhile, at the embassy. Have we just set ourselves up for blowback directed at our embassies elsewhere in the world?

    https://sputniknews.com/us/201905171...ear-usa-court/
    The four activists arrested in the Venezuelan embassy in Washington on Thursday will remain in detention overnight and appear in US federal court on Friday morning, director of the advocacy group Act Now to Stop War and End Racism (ANSWER) Brian Becker said.

    "The US government violated the Vienna Convention this morning by arresting the Embassy Protection Collective," Becker said on Thursday. "The four individuals who have been arrested will be held overnight in jail and will appear in federal court tomorrow morning."
    Venezuela's President Nicolas Maduro has praised the activists for their bravery, while accusing his US counterpart, President Donald Trump, of violating the rule of inviolability, which covers embassies worldwide.
    Becker said the activists are now facing an obscure charge called "interference with certain protective functions."
    https://sputniknews.com/latam/201905...racas-embassy/
    "I have ordered to boost the legal police protection of the building of the former US embassy which belongs to the US government. We will protect it because Venezuela follows conventions and international law. Criminals are sitting in the White House," Maduro said on Thursday.
    https://sputniknews.com/us/201905171...bassy-seizure/
    Activists will stage a protest in front of the Venezuelan Embassy in Washington on Saturday to denounce the US government’s decision to forcibly enter the diplomatic facility in violation of international law and arrest four activists residing there, organizer Ariel Gold said on Thursday.

    "We will gather on Saturday to say no way to US war in Venezuela, to say no way to the US coup in that country and say no way to violating the Vienna Convention and international law," said Gold, a national co-director for Code Pink and activist with the Embassy Protection Collective. "So we are having an all-out for Venezuela, an all out for hands off Venezuela Saturday at noon right here at the embassy, and we encourage all people to come and show up for that."

    https://sputniknews.com/us/201905181...aid-us-police/
    Members of the Embassy Protection Collective who were arrested by armed US police inside the Venezuelan Embassy in Washington, DC have been released, pending a hearing on various conditions.

    The four protesters — Kevin Zeese, Margaret Ann Flowers, Adrienne Pine, and David Vernon Paul — could face up to a year in jail for reportedly trying to prevent the takeover of the building by the US-backed opposition.

    The misdemeanour charge of “interfering with a federal law enforcement agent engaged in protective functions” carries a maximum sentence of one year in jail and a $1,000 fine. The activists, however, claim the US police had no legal right to enter the building, reflecting the opinion of the Venezuelan government.
    As a condition of their release, the activists have been ordered by the judge to steer clear of 10 locations currently controlled by representatives of the Venezuelan opposition and to check in weekly with authorities.

    The four are due back in court on 12 June.

    The judge ordered the protesters to steer clear of 10 locations now controlled by representatives of the Venezuelan opposition and check in weekly with authorities as a condition of their release. While the US government asked for their passports to be confiscated, that request was denied, though they must notify authorities if they plan to travel abroad.

    And of course trump's NWO regime change foreign policy will push Venezuela into doing business with the Russians, instead of us.

    Caracas is in talks with Moscow over the possibility of using the Russian ruble in mutual trade settlements and abandoning dollar transactions, according to Venezuela’s representative to the UN office in Geneva Jorge Valero.
    Numerous sanctions introduced against Venezuela by the US have forced the Bolivarian Republic to stop using the dollar for its international transactions. It switched to the euro last October. In addition, the country started swapping crude oil for imported products.
    Valero added that Caracas counts on the Kremlin’s support in restructuring Venezuela’s foreign debt.

    USAID returns to Ecuador for the first time since being expelled from the country in 2014 by former President Rafael Correa.


    Mark Green, USAID Administrator, and Ecuador’s Foreign Minister Jose Valencia, stand during a signing ceremony in Quito, Ecuador, Wednesday, May 15, 2019.

    Ecuador’s President Lenin Moreno said on April 11 that the country had taken a “sovereign decision” to withdraw Julian Assange’s asylum status.

    According to Orban, he belongs to a group of elected leaders – including Trump and the leaders of Israel, India, Poland and Italy – who “put their own country’s interests first… and expressly oppose building” a world government, AP said.
    Read it. Read it again. What a complete load of crap.

    why. Why would EU 'defiant' , Hungarian patriot Victor Orban suddenly squat like this??
    ans:
    Hegemons are holding his poverty stricken country hostage.

    An ice cold message has been delivered from the global mafia: 'We will turn the Hungarian economy on its head.'
    Orban caved.

    Trump's administration has a set of sanctions against Orban's closest allies if he won't follow Washington's orders
    (ie. if he continues cooperation with Russia).
