US Escalates Warmongering Against Venezuela Because Of… Drug Trafficking?


02-04-20 08:00:00,

The Trump administration is sending Navy ships to patrol Venezuela, the latest escalation against the government targeted by an aggressive hybrid US regime change intervention.

“President Donald Trump announced Wednesday that Navy ships are being moved toward Venezuela as his administration beefs up counter-narcotics operations in the Caribbean following a U.S. drug indictment against Nicolás Maduro,” AP reports in an article packed with pro-US disinformation.

“As governments and nations focus on the coronavirus there is a growing threat that cartels, criminals, terrorists and other malign actors will try to exploit the situation for their own gain,” said Trump. “We must not let that happen.”

“The Venezuelan people continue to suffer tremendously due to Maduro and his criminal control over the country, and drug traffickers are seizing on this lawlessness,” added Defense Secretary Mark Esper.

How much dishonesty can you cram into a single report? @AP is going for the record. Let’s count (see thread. Also, what on Earth is an “anti-drug ship”?)

All of this, of course, is bullshit. The US government does not care about “the Venezuelan people” (a term only ever invoked to advance pro-regime change narratives); if they did they wouldn’t be murdering them by the tens of thousands using starvation sanctions and targeting them with backdoor biowarfare by cutting off their ability to protect themselves from a deadly pandemic.

The US government is also not interested in “drug traffickers”. As journalist Ben Norton notes, “Even the US government’s own data admit the vast, vast, vast majority of drugs (mostly cocaine) coming from Latin America come from Colombia — a right-wing US colony.”

“70% of the coca (used to create cocaine) grown in the whole world came from Colombia in 2017 according to the UN,” Norton adds. “Right-wing US colony Colombia is the CIA’s favorite drug dealer, used to fund death squads and Contra terrorist wars to overthrow leftist governments.”

As Venezuela Analysis rightly points out, in 2009 George W Bush awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom to then-president of Colombia Álvaro Uribe Vélez,

De-Dollarization Escalates: “African Economy Needs More Usage Of Chinese Yuan”

people don’t want the truth, what will it take for people on the RIGHT in America and for Native Europeans to wake up and stand up and start making plans for their SELF-DEFENSE? FOR THEMSELVES AND THEIR CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN?


Consanguineous marriage (aka “inbreeding”) dates back to early humans.   Royal families commonly married cousins as a means of keeping wealth and power concentrated.   Consanguineous marriage occurs between genetically close relatives such parent-child, siblings, and cousins.   Higher rates of cognitive developmental problems such as mental retardation, as well as higher rates of various infectious disease, due to comprises to the immune system occur in offspring of consanguineous marriages.

While consanguineous marriages have declined substantially in developed countries, marriage with relatives continues to occur at substantially high rates in various parts of the world and typically involves categories of cousins, and, in some cases, uncle–niece unions.    Consanguineous marriage is especially common today among Muslim and Hindu populations in Africa and Asia with a consanguinity rate of 25-80% and a high percentage of first-cousin marriages.  There are 10 million newborns each year in North Africa and the Middle East combined, with the majority of the population being Muslims, mostly Arab, and most from consanguineous marriages.    In parts of Asian, Africa, and the Indian subcontinent, especially among Moslems and Hindus, such marriages continue to take place on a large scale and show only a slight indication of decline.  It is especially common in Arab communities in both Christians and Muslims.   Higher fertility rates are found on the whole among women married to relatives.   For example, in Ghana, a man had 100 children and his family comprised 35% of the entire tribal village.   He almost married one of his many daughters.     Inbreeding is common in many countries in Africa, likely due to situations in which high fertility rates combine with the Muslim religion to sanction consanguineous marriages.   Also, polygamy is sanctioned in the Koran so Muslim men marry many wives.   This causes a decrease in genetic diversity because a few men are having a disproportionate impact on successive generations.    Random genetic mutations become more important.

The prevalence of consanguineous marriages varies throughout the world.    Rates of 50% and higher are found in countries such as Sudan,
