The War On Venezuela Is Built On Lies. John Pilger, johnpilger.com

  • http://johnpilger.com/photo/470x357-C6u.jpgShould the CIA stooge Guaido and his white supremacists grab power, it will be the 68th overthrow of a sovereign government by the United States, most of them democracies. A fire sale of Venezuela's utilities and mineral wealth will surely follow, along with the theft of the country's oil, as outlined by John Bolton.

  • Part 2: Joe Biden Likes Republicans So Much Because He’s So Much Like Them
  • It’s preposterous yet fitting for Joe Biden to claim that Republicans like Dick Cheney and Mike Pence are “decent.” He’s not only defending them. He’s also defending himself.
