WHERE’S MADURO? Trump Recognizes Juan Guaido As President Of Venezuela

Is Nicolas Maduro dead? Strange things (like a CIA coup?) are happening in Venezuela at lightning speed, and Nicolas Maduro is nowhere to be found…

Update 6:00 p.m. EST, Weds, 23 January 2019:

from The Hill (updated at 2:52 p.m. EST):

Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro said Wednesday that Venezuela is cutting off all diplomatic relations with the United States and ordered American diplomats in the country to leave within 72 hours, according to media reports.

“Before the people and nations of the world, and as constitutional president … I’ve decided to break diplomatic and political relations with the imperialist U.S. government,” Maduro said while speaking with supporters Wednesday, according to The Associated Press.

The move comes after the Trump administration earlier Wednesday recognized Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaidó as the country’s interim president.

Maduro said Wednesday that the U.S. was making a “grave mistake” by recognizing Guaidó as the interim president, the AP reported.



I wrote about this very thing just yesterday.

Sure, the US Military hasn’t invaded, but something is definitely going down in Venezuela.

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

Since I wrote my controversial article yesterday on the potential for an imminent US Military invasion of Venezuela, a few strange things have happened.

First, well, Mike Pence happened:

And then, apparently, Maduro had time to gather the masses for an impromptu pep rally to tell them it’s gonna be a complete and total diplomatic overhaul for US-Venezuelan relations:


Complete with sign language for the hearing impaired, and a nice back-drop, but with the generalities spoken by Maduro in those thirty seconds, it’s likely Maduro was talking about overhauling the Venezuela coffee trade with the US Department of the Commerce.

But I digress.

This afternoon, well, President Trump happened:

And finally, well, Maduro didn’t happen.

You know, cause he’s not the BMOC anymore.

Regime change baby!

American style.

Attendance is mandatory, and satisfaction is not guaranteed!

So much for ending the endless wars.

Unless, of course, a covert war fought with black ops where the winner effects regime change and installs a puppet president doesn’t count as war.

But who’s counting?

And where in the heck is Nicolas Maduro anyway?

You know, the “he may be the President of Venezuela right now but he’s not because he rigged the election according to the State Department the White House and a Senator from Florida so after several threats over the years from the US to do something well now something was finally done Nicolas Maduro”?

Yeah, that guy.

He’s nowhere to be found.

That’s curious.

What does all of this mean?

Well, unless you have a direct line to the inside and are privy to that information, it’s anybody’s best guess.

Which means it’s a developing story, and it’s still very early in the development.

Either way, the cartel thanks you in advance Mr Maduro.

You know, for all that gold.

Stack accordingly…
