Imminent US Military Invasion Of Venezuela To Overthrow Maduro And Effect Regime Change?

With 3 recent coups/assassination attempts on Venezuela/Maduro, and with US Deep State politicians beating the war drums, is military intervention next?

Something very strange is going on.

But I don’t yet know how to connect the dots.

In 2017, famous Venezuelan actor and pilot Oscar Perez went on some sort of helicopter rampage and “attacked” various parts of the Venezuelan government, apparently calling for the Venezuelan people to “rise up” against the government.

Needless to say, Perez and some of his group were killed in a raid on January 15, 2018.

The MSM propagandist coverage on Venezuela then shifted focus to the human suffering and abject misery seen in daily life in the resource rich utopia turned socialist dystopian nightmare.

That is, until August of 2018, when, wouldn’t you know it, there was a drone attack and presumed “assassination attempt” on Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro?

Here’s American propagandist network CNN with the details:

Of course CNN spins it as if this drama in Venezuela occurs as frequent as the monthly meetings of the Benevolent Order of Antelopes.

Why wouldn’t CNN spin it like that?

Fast forward to just this past weekend, here in late January, 2019, and low-and-behold we have yet another “uprising” against the Venezuelan government, but this time, it is an uprising apparently conducted by the actual Venezuelan military.

Let’s set the stage with US Senator Marco Rubio:

Immediate exit?


Well, since the US Senator was kind enough to set the stage for us in Rubio’s attempt to Make Venezuela Great Again, let’s continue with Rubio to get the run-down on this most recent coup:

Oh yeah, and so the “Spanish only” Twitter users, users who apparently don’t know how to use Twitter’s ‘translate’ feature, don’t get left out, here is Senator Rubio again proclaiming that Maduro is not the legitimate President of Venezuela:


OK, “Hey Half Dollar, you have jumbled together three somewhat related events, but, what does this have to do with anything of real importance?”.

Good question.

To answer that, let’s rewind the clock a little further (to August, 2017):

Did anybody notice that?

“We have troops all over the world, and Venezuela is not very far away.”.

Art of the deal?

Syria for Venezuela?

That little nugget, no pun intended, kind-of puts any actual US troop rotation (which so far has been all talk and no action) in a certain light, doesn’t it?

President Trump gets to withdrawal the troops from Syria = WIN!

The US Deep State warmongering neocons get to fight another day with this all-of-the-sudden and out-of-the-blue “imminent” need for the US to do something = WIN!

That’s like a Win-Win.

Said differently, the US war machine is a beast that must constantly be fed, and the beast’s appetite is never satisfied, so any reduction in US forces in one area of the globe necessitates the intervention and installation of US troops in some other area of the globe.

And why not Venezuela?

Heck, it doesn’t take all day to get there for the photo-ops, and Venezuela does have some of the nicest beaches around!

Besides, China has pivoted to Africa, and China looks to be dominating the resources there, despite the US military build-up of Djibouti, so unless the US acts fast against the Venezuelan government, the Chinese, the Russians, the Saudis, or Heaven forbid the Turks end up swooping-in to Venezuela and gaining control of those Latin American resources (like soil, timber, gold, oil, workers, etc).

Therefore, true to American war machine style, if we are going in, we’re not going in with business investment spending, infrastructure build-outs, and research & development.


We will go in, guns a-blazin’, and we will first destroy the infrastructure, secondly devastate the landscape, and then hopefully turn plenty a town into rubble, all the while testing out our latest and greatest military gadgets, so that we can pay Misters Kellogg, Brown & Root to move-in and rebuild Venezuela later on.

Then we’ll make sure Nicolas Maduro, the “Illegitimate President” (Rubio’s words, not mine), is either removed from power, Qaddafi style, or, put on trial, Saddam style.

Either way, it will be quite the show, and the US will have saved Venezuela from an evil tyrannical dictatorship.

But wait, there’s more!

Because in addition to freeing the Venezuelan people, The US will be installing and configuring Western democracy to the formerly enslaved 3rd-world crap-hole.

But don’t take ‘Ol Half Dollar’s word for it, hear it from Secretary of State Mike Pompeo himself, speaking about Venezuela just two weeks ago (bold added for emphasis):

The Maduro regime is illegitimate and the United States will continue … to work diligently to restore a real democracy to that country,” he said. “We are very hopeful that we can be force for good to allow the region to come together to deliver that.”



That’s right, Venezuela!

You’re gonna get some old-fashioned Western democracy, US style!

Congratulations Venezuela, you’ve won the lottery!

Or am I missing something here?


I’m not smart enough to know.

I am, however, smart enough to know one thing that went missing from all the United States’ regime change endeavors, and that thing was Saddam’s gold.

And also that of Qaddafi.

And while we do know where “Maduro’s gold” is (say it again, out loud, and hear just how evil that sounds – “Maduro’s gold”), we must also understand that there is a constant scramble by cartel governments and cartel central banks to bring physical gold to market, you know, in order to continue the price suppression schemes and maintain the brainwashed sheeple’s confidence in our debt-based fiat currency.

Regardless, tin-pot dictators are literal goldmines.

And formerly tin-pot dictators?

Don’t worry.

I’m asking that as a rhetorical question.

And it doesn’t require an answer.

Like someone requires gold.

Stack accordingly…
