Friedman, Florida Sen. Rick Scott, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, evangelical preacher John Hagee, conservative TV host Mike Huckabee and Netanyahu’s son, Yair, have been among the many politicians and VIPs to attend parties at Simon Falic’s Jerusalem home.

The Tragedy of Venezuela Is the Tragedy of the United States of America

Knowing what I know about my own Administration’s attempt to unseat Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez in 2002, I was not surprised when the effort was recently renewed by the Trump Administration, particularly when such arch-defenders of Latin American rights as Elliott Abrams, Marco Rubio, and Rick Scott – not to mention John Bolton – began to appear on the White House payroll.

Die Tragödie Venezuelas ist die Tragödie der Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika

In Kenntnis dessen, was ich über den Versuch meiner eigenen Regierung weiß, den venezolanischen Präsidenten Hugo Chavez im Jahr 2002 aus dem Amt zu werfen, war ich nicht überrascht, als die Trump-Administration die Bemühungen kürzlich erneuerte, insbesondere als solche Erzverteidiger lateinamerikanischer Rechte wie Elliott Abrams, Marco Rubio und Rick Scott – ganz zu schweigen von John Bolton – begannen, auf der Gehaltsliste des Weißen Hauses aufzutauchen.

As a soldier who knows the horrible cost of war, I call on both sides in Venezuela to resolve their differences peacefully. We should always be ready to sit & speak with adversaries. Civil war in Venezuela will result in unimaginable suffering & undermine US national security.

The violence in Venezuela today against peaceful protesters is criminal. Maduro’s regime is responsible for incredible suffering. The U.S. must stand with the National Assembly & Guaidó in their efforts to restore democracy through legitimate, internationally monitored elections.

Rezept für Trump: eine Dosis vietnamesischen Sirups

Wie in den letzten Jahren der 80er und den frühen 90er Jahren glauben sie wieder an den Dominoeffekt: Wenn Venezuela fällt, fällt Nicaragua, und natürlich wird am Ende auch Kuba an der Reihe sein.

Tonight the “Baghdad Bob” of #Caracas @jorgerpsuv revealed I caused the nationwide & ongoing electric power outage in #Venezuela. My apologies to people of Venezuela. I must have pressed the wrong thing on the “electronic attack” app I downloaded from Apple. My bad.

Venezuela Denounces US Participation in Electric Sabotage

(8.3.2019) They attacked the automated control of the Guri system that supplies the country with energy, Rodríguez said in his speech. This information was handled by US Senator Marco Rubio shortly after the aggression was executed as he let it be known on his Twitter posts.

‚How did Marco Rubio know that backup generators had failed? At that time, no one knew that,‘ the Bolivarian government official asked.

ALERT: Reports of a complete power outage all across #Venezuela at this moment. 18 of 23 states & the capital district are currently facing complete blackouts. Main airport also without power & backup generators have failed. #MaduroRegime is a complete disaster.

Venezuela makes an interesting case that Marco Rubio, US Senator, knew backup generators at the main power plant malfunctioned just minutes after the power went out. They claim only perpetuators could know that.. #Venezuela #cdnpoli #politics @UN

Replying to @marcorubio: NATO worked with al-Qaeda-aligned extremists to overthrow the once prosperous, oil-rich nation of Libya and turn it into a failed state with open-air slave markets. Imperialist sadist Rubio is now threatening Venezuela with the same death and destruction.

Marco Rubio tweets picture of bloodied Gaddafi in presumed reference to killing Nicolás Maduro

Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., posted a tweet on Sunday that seemed to argue for embattled Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro to meet the same violent fate as former Libyan Prime Minister Muammar Gaddafi.

The tweet, which shows a bloodied Gaddafi shortly before he was murdered in a coup d’etat, is especially notable within the context of Rubio’s other recent tweets on American foreign policy toward Venezuela.

Branson, Rubio und Co und die Kriegstrommeln

Wenn die Musiker wirklich die Nöte des venezolanischen Volkes lindern wollten, müssten sie dafür singen, dass die US-Regierung die Sanktionen gegen Caracas aufhebt und das venezolanische Volk seine Probleme zu Hause ohne Einmischung von außen löst. Hundert Millionen Dollar, sagt Branson, dass sie sammeln werden? Viel mehr hätte das venezolanische Volk zur Verfügung, würde die Auswirkung der US-Sanktionen rückgängig gemacht, deren Kosten auf 38 Milliarden Dollar geschätzt werden, so Angaben des privaten Fernsehsenders Globovisión.

As tensions in Venezuela heighten, Marco Rubio says US should ‚go big‘ on its relationship with Brazil’s new right-wing president

(29.1.2019) Brazil, Rubio argued, can be a „force multiplier“ in addressing the crisis in Venezuela.
Rubio suggested that the US should support Brazil’s ascension to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development and its space capabilities.
The US, Rubio said, should capitalize on Brazil’s new right-wing government, saying previous leftist governments in the country „undermined“ its economic and political stability.
