On January 26th 2019 the Permanent Representative of Russia to the United Nations Vasily Nebenzya, speaking at the 8452nd meeting of the UN Security Council on the topic of the situation in Venezuela, asked America (or more precisely – Mike Pompeo) a simple and rhetorical question: are you going to once again violate the UN Charter?
Note by The Saker: Elliott Abrams has been appointed as the United States’ Special Envoy to Venezuela and today he spoke for the Elliott Abrams USA in the UNSC.
THAT Elliott Abrams?! Seriously?!
Speaking to the world about *democracy* at the UNSC!
As the Russian rep said, seeing that face speaking of democracy is surreal.
Here is what even Wikipedia says about this guy:
“He is currently a senior fellow for Middle Eastern studies at the Council on Foreign Relations. Additionally, Abrams holds positions on the Committee for Peace and Security in the Gulf (CPSG), Center for Security Policy & National Secretary Advisory Council, Committee for a Free Lebanon, and the Project for the New American Century. Abrams is a current member of the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Council”
Once again, it is their infinite arrogance along with their psychopathy which will cause the inevitable downfall of the Neocons. And Mr MAGA will go down with them, as he so richly deserves.
UsA warns of serious consequences if any harm threats etc to USA diplomats or the opposition…..sounds like a bit of a catchall….
Washington will respond to violence and intimidation directed toward US diplomats or Venezuela’s opposition leader Juan Guaido, stated John Bolton, the White House national security adviser, on Sunday.
“Any violence and intimidation against US diplomatic personnel, Venezuela’s democratic leader, Juan Guiado [sic], or the National Assembly itself would represent a grave assault on the rule of law and will be met with a significant response,” Bolton tweeted.
Surely the world cannot long survive the depredations of the Evil psychopaths of the Thanatopolis DC regime much longer. As a child I was loathe to believe in the existence of Evil in human affairs, but now, after decades of watching it take over the world from its HQ in Thanatopolis DC, I see it as omnipresent, fulminating, remorseless and fast approaching its apotheosis. The mere existence of monsters like Bolton, Pompeo, Bibi, Bolsanaro, Morrison et al, let alone their power and dominance and lust for blood, is proof, I would say, that the end is very near.
It’s the Bay of Pigs fiasco all over again.
Trump has been mousetrapped.
The government shut down and all circumstances around him are managed. Then they give him a way out on the anniversary of his inauguration…the 22nd January.
The night of 21/22 January a wolf blood moon.
Trump was born under a blood moon 700 days before the founding of the Israel entity.
Trump is not a victim. He rode into the White House on the money from Adelson and friends plus a well managed alt right disinformation campaign. Trump thought he could bully his way through the WASP Establishment because Mossad had his back, but the WASP Swamp is not easily defeated even by Mossad Swamp creature sock puppets.
He is Pharmacos. Of course he is victim. That the Pharmacos is also a criminal does not change his character, but serves rather to justify his liquidation and absolve those who are worse criminals and who guide and chivvy the man into one crime after another….
Please, Chris, do not contribute to absolution of the sins and crimes of Imperial Lusts by heaping blame on the stooge…it feeds the crime spree.
Hmm. I’ve thought something similar for some time. Clinton suffered the Lewinsky scandal even if he was an outstanding operator for the US Deep State Complex (not all agreed apparently). Obama, even if deeply CIA connected, had Rahm Emmanuel to keep him in check until he learned how to behave. Seems to me no modern US President goes without being cut down to size. Dubya… well he was damaged way before his WH sojourn. Reagan was shot. GHW Bush was the CIA outright, but he was never popular.
It’s good to know that Russia is standing up to the US bully. We only hope that China can follow the example of Russia when dealing with the empire and unequivocally support countries in need of support in the UNSC and elsewhere.
UN Security Council Should Punish All Those Behind These Coup Attempts: Venezuelan UN Envoy
Venezuelan UN Envoy speaks at UN Security Council meeting
Posted January 26, 2019
Guaidi is a Mason and reports to the same New York lodge Soros enjoys
Here is a picture of him in masonic apron
I doubt today that many Americans know what is in the Charter of the United Nations. I suspect most don’t know it even exists. Its been a long time since I was in school. Back then, American history courses ran out about at the end of WW2. Oh, there were a few chapters for the time since, but the length of the school year said that if you began at Columbus (and of course, not the mass murdering en-slaver) then the school year ran out on the history course at about the end of WW2. Don’t ever know if that’s been fixed. But if they did start to cut more out, then FDR and Eleanor Roosevelt and the founding of the United Nations after WW2 would be one of the first part to be cut by the Texas school board that controls most printed text books in the US.
The founding of the United Nations is not celebrated in the USA. And what is said in the UN Charter is not ever really mentioned. Its not in any Hollywood movies. Nobody makes any historical dramas about Franklin and Eleanor trying to prevent the horror of WW2 from ever occurring again.
To the extent that the UN is mentioned, its by the right-wingers who hate it constantly attacking it and smearing it. The fact that OMG, the USA actually pays money to the UN is politically treated as a scandal. Republican Presidents for a long time have been either cutting off the funding or threatening to do so. And of course, Israel also hates the UN and that of course does influence what’s said on American corporate mass media. There’s not really a pro-UN party in the US. Well, the Green Party maybe, for what that’s worth with their 1% of the vote, but not the Democrats and certainly not the Republicans.
Its only a few freaks like me who use the wonder of the Internet to go and read such documents as the Charter of the United Nations and the UN Declaration of Human Rights. Thus its only a few freaks like me who clearly understand that the USA has been in flagrant violation of the UN Charter since at least the Yugoslavian War under Clinton and pretty much continuously ever since.
By the way, the UN Charter is publicly available on the UN website. http://www.un.org/en/charter-united-nations/index.html. It is very clearly a document which is trying to prevent war. Too bad it hasn’t worked.
Well done Elanor.
People in general forget very very quickly what was said/done a week ago. Expecting them to reflect that far back requires that someone is deeply interested and is constantly following events and how those events are presented to the Public. Then one has a chance to see how the grifters work.
Instruction at the High School level in the general principles of International Law, is itself a requirement of International Law…I remember reading this in a tome https://www.amazon.com/History-Warfare-John-Keegan/dp/0394588010/ref=tmm_hrd_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=&sr=
I had not noticed this subject in the syllabus.
Of course when my children were small I made sure they knew the Laws, as this duty lies upon all custodial parties.
The Laws as Americans understand them are entirely a matter of mysterious ukase. This is obviously one of the consequences of their deliberate and illegal ignorance.
As a practical matter the Laws are secret…
After the outrageous attack on, and destruction of, Yugoslavia, the US not only got away with it, they pushed to set up “International Courts” to prosecute unfavored leaders and pushed to change the entire Charter of the UN, which is based on national sovereignty and the forbidding on war, to the “Responsibility to Protect” nonsense that would allow the US to unilaterally destroy any country it deemed unfit.
As I read the version that actually passed, though, the UN says that it is up to the leaders of each country to protect their citizens, and it doesn’t give the US the right to judge the results, nor does it give the US the right to bomb people in order to protect them.
However, 13 homeless people froze to death in Chicago last night. This shows that the US is failing miserably in providing the basics of life to its citizens, including food, water and shelter.
According to US doctrine, the US should be bombed until we lose all functioning government, in order to protect the homeless and hungry among us.
Quoting the Saker: “Once again, it is their infinite arrogance along with their psychopathy which will cause the inevitable downfall of the Neocons. And Mr MAGA will go down with them, as he so richly deserves.”
Look at the reaction to the latest regime change gambit in Venezuela in the US. There was no reaction, outside the usual small marginalized minority still able to use critical thinking guided by principles and moral values. For the rest Double Think is now the fully accepted condition and norm. The DNC and GOP and Swamp Creature Neocons KNOW this, which is why they are gloating and barely even bother to hide in the shadows anymore.
The reaction of the avarege USian goes something like this:
US elections and officials are corrupt (Debbie Wasserman Schultz & Elliot Abrams et al). If they are from the DNC/GOP they are INSANE. Therefore we must send corrupt US officials to Venezuela to liberate them from corrupt officials and elections. America’s corruption is good, or irrelevant, or conveniently forgotten. Venezuela’s corruption is bad, because they are not acting in our (corrupt) interests. (China bad. Russia bad. Socialism bad.)
We are good, because we mean well. We will take all your money and resources for ourselves, but we are good, because we liberated you from corruption. If we kill you, it’s because we mean well. We mean well, because we are inherently good, even when we kill you for your resources and to empower ourselves.
This Double Think flaw is inherent to the US WASP American Dream mythology. The Neocons are masterful at exploiting this, you see it in the way they installed the Christian Zionist psychovirus in the American subconscious. It had fertile ground because it is a reflection of US mythology. If you remove the Zionist psychovirus, the deeper strata of US mythology still remains. This is why there will never be an uprising against the US elites.
The Neocons will go down. But only as a result of the wars they started as a result of their inherent greed, hubris and stupidity and IF China and/or Russia finally decide they cannot be cornered anymore.
“This Double Think flaw is inherent to the US WASP American Dream mythology.

The American Mentality itself is a supremacist mentality, one that fervently believes that America is the Shining City on a Hill that was chosen by God to be a “beacon of liberty” for the entire world–no matter how many people that this Land of the Free exploits, plunders, attacks, or bombs back to the Stone Age….
America Is a Religion – An Aggressive One
America is a fundamentalist religion just as much as Zionism or Islamicism.
It’s not just the abrams war criminal and traitor:
Congresswoman who fixed Democratic primary for Clinton now ‘fixing’ democracy in Venezuela
“The House Foreign Affairs Committee has even offered a simple explanation on how a ‘dream team’ of Democrats have prepared a package of laws, which will ensure Venezuela’s transition into a better future. Debbie Mucarsel-Powell will be bringing humanitarian aid, Donna Shalala will stop the arming of Maduro’s thugs with batons and tear gas, while Debbie Wasserman Schultz gets arguably the hardest task of them all – taking on Russia’s President Vladimir Putin.”
Vast Majority Of Democrats In Congress Remain Silent Or Support Coup In Venezuela
“Three Democratic Representatives in Florida—Debbie Mucarsel-Powell, Donna Shalala, and Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the former head of the Democratic National Committee—came together to issue a joint statement in support of the right-wing opposition.”
Only a couple dems spoke against this zionazi-nazi-gay orchestrated coup attempt, but first needed proding and all but Gabbard of these neutralised their opposition with the bog standard zionazi-gay anti-Venezuela propaganda. Regarding Ocasio-Cortez, the “social democrat”, very, very unimpressive equivocating response. On the “other side”, not seen anything from the “anti-interventionist libertarian” rand paul, so I’ll assume he is once again being “pragmatic” in his token role as “house opposition”.
The second article covers much more ground than just what I quoted and paraphrased above, worth a read through.
What this universal collusion between the dems and reps, and both and the zionazi-gay media cheerleading the way, is that their is no daylight between any of these. There is no “white hat” trumpettes fighting the “black hat” “deep state”. That is all a circus show to keep the public occupied, too busy and stupid. All of the hat wearers above are on the same side and there is no “deep state”, just powerful oligarchs and their minions.
“Three Democratic Representatives in Florida—Debbie Mucarsel-Powell, Donna Shalala, and Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the former head of the Democratic National Committee—came together to issue a joint statement in support of the right-wing opposition.””
surely all of these ladies are part of Rubio’s Florida cabal.
Florida has long been at the center of right-wing agitation against any center to left politicians in Latin America.
Partly from proximity, and partly because this proximity means that all of the Cubans who hate Fidel Castro’s Cuba are sitting in Florida, creating a nucleus for right-wing agitation and sabotage in that state. I don’t know where the large population of retired Jews in Florida end up standing, but it is quite possible that they also back up the right-wing interventions in Latin America.
Still, it is true that few Americans seem to give a s—about what is happening in Venezuela, or more precisely, what the Ven. coup says about the USA. Again, one of my erstwhile friends who is a big Russiagate believer now supports this coup!! So, I said, in spite of Trump’s supposed collusion with Putin to throw the 2016 election, you are now A-OK with Trump! You are now in bed with Pence-Bolton-Pompeo-Trump after all!!!
Truly, the left has lost its mind. It is no wonder that it is impossible to respect anyone left on the American so-called left.
Two can play at this game. There is ample proof that the United States is dis-united, is a fascist plutocracy of sorts in dire need of democratic reform, violates human rights, has a corrupt judiciary, supports and is actively involved in terrorism and any suggestion that the administration is functional is now quite laughable.
The world will detain them no longer in office. Time to appoint an unelected leader then or at least a viceroy and tp dismiss Washington -expel them and send them home. Perhaps to that small troublesome country in the ME.
The coup is not going as planned. No support for terrorism on the streets, no looting, and the Army remains fully behind Maduro. It is just too obvious that the USA is openly going for regime change, a colonial grab for oil, and the Latin American people will not support it. Unlike in Ukraine, where a long term, latent Fascism could be awakened, or Syria and Libya, where Islamism/Muslim Brotherhood could be used, there is no equivalent movement in Venezuela for the neo colonialists to exploit. USA is despised there, especially as Trump is considered anti Hispanic and the text book definition of a White Anglo Saxon Zionist/Protestant. Colombia has had to come out and say they will not allow the USA to use their bases to attack Venezuela.
40% of Americans live in poverty already. Trump should worry about the all encompassing poverty that is coming to the USA once China pulls the plug on the debt/manufacturing game very soon. All the while, the EU next generation realises it has to make a energy and trade alliance with Russia slowly but irreversibly. Goodbye White Anglo Saxons, the world will miss your genocidal exceptionalism, unadulterated greed and cultural desectration.
“there is no equivalent movement in Venezuela for the neo colonialists to exploit.”
Actually, there is, and it’s there in spades. It’s called Catholicism, the largest organisation supporting fascism worldwide. All the major fascist [bowel] movements had/have staunch Catholic support. All of them.
In Venezuela, there are also large numbers of the Protestant versions of fundi Christians, due to several decades of dedicated ” missionary” work promoted by the same in the usa, as well as by their Jewish zionazi aligned handlers. There are also a lot of Mormons. Due to the same sort of corruption. Remember secord and north of Iran-contra, besides dealing in drugs and terrorism, they also worked to infect Latin America with Mormonism. Not many know this, it wasn’t reported much at the time.
While Catholics, Mormons and fundy Protestants are not all fanatics, the leadership of all of these religious sects for the most part do promote fanaticism. Of the sort which the zpc/nwo finds very useful for furthering their interests. These fanatics, essentially, the far right wingers there, are the people in Venezuela who the zionazi-gays will be using like ukronazis in ukraine and takfiris in Asia/Africa. They will populate “contras”, like against Nicaragua, and if israeloamerica manages to coup Venezuela, they will be the death squads there.
Actually, there is, and [the something exploitable by the neo-colonialists is] there in spades. It’s called Catholicism, the largest organisation supporting fascism worldwide. All the major fascist [bowel] movements had/have staunch Catholic support. All of them.
Yes. Fortunately, “liberation theology”, which tends to be leftist, is strong in South America, probably strong enough to prevent the Catholic Church from dominating Venezuela.
Also, Catholic influence is diminishing rapidly. According to this article,
It is no coincidence that when Liberation Theology took hold in Latin America, the US ruling class put millions into fundamentalist Protestant missionaries to counter it.
It is no coincidence that the massive drop in Catholicism in Latin America followed the infusion of millions of dollars put into fundamentalism.
They did the same thing here, at the same time, (the 80s), with the Jesus Freaks and the megachurches and the Focus on the Family/James Dobson types. They also took over the USAF and the NORAD and NorthCom headquarters in Colorado Springs, which also serves as the headquarters for many of the Christian fundamentalists megachurches, TV and radio stations, and other means of subversion.
During the 80s, the US Deep State also poured millions into the Muslim fundamentalists in Afghanistan and Pakistan, among other places.
They really don’t care what brand of God people worship, as long as it is a US imperialism-supporting brand, Christian or Muslim. Or Jew, for that matter. Look at the takeover of Israel by crazy neo-con supporters during the same time.
I was surprised by the robust words of the two Black-majority countries in UN Security council. The representative for Equatorial Guinea implied in his speech that United States was trying to turn Venezuela into a Libyan tragedy that will destabilize neighbouring countries. The representative for the micro state St Vincent & The Grenadines also accused USA [without mentioning its name] of trying to repeat the aggression of the cold war years. Not to mention the statements of Russia, Cuba and Bolivia

Truth Stands, Saker, Your Site Is Enlightened,
The comments of the representative of Russia on the UNSC are quite reasonable and to be expected of those who take diplomacy seriously and respect for international forums and agreements.
Unfortunately, that is not the US attitude has been evidenced from Ukraine to Venezuela with stops in Libya, Kosovo and Iraq. The US regime, as Germany before it, is working its way towards its Polish moment or perhaps to a moment like June 22, 1941.
We can hope for the success of diplomacy but should not rely on it. What use is a great army if you are not willing to use it?
The America-controlled “free press” may not be reporting this news, but the USA has already suffered 2 diplomatic defeats in its attempts to legitimate its coup d’etat and ultimately military intervention against the legally elected Venezuelan government of Nicholas Maduro.
First, even the Organization of American States (which has traditionally been a USA-dominated organization) voted 18-16 *against* an American … I mean… Argentinian sponsored initiative calling for intervention in Venezuela.
Secondly, the UN Security Council just voted 17-16 *against* an American supported resolution again calling for intervention in Venezuela.
So when America runs its mouth about how the “international community” supports the USA’s regime change machinations against Venezuela, it is lying through its teeth–unless, by “international community” they only mean the Europeans/Americans and their assorted vassal states.
Donald Trump will learn the hard way “regime change by Twitter” blows back in America’s face.
News from Yesterday’s OAS Debate – or How Stupid is Gringo Diplomacy?
The UN Security Council Vote on the Venezuelan Situation
Betchya “something happens” so they will try again…maybe threaten those who do not vote along with USA as has-been Nikki Haley said they would do….is Integrity Initiative still alive and kicking too considering this seems right out of their play list…one wonders….ain’t over yet methinks. It all seems like the evil organisation is stretching their wings….who or what is next…co-ordinated against others for ..mass turmoil….world chaos….?
The US could try to twist some arms in the Security Council, but the Yanks would be wasting their time. The Russians and the Chinese still have vetos.
Reading Abrams and his wife’s wiki is enough for me. Just more of the same vampire activity by the vampires
Double think in Latin America: the paid political mercenaries scream about unfair elections which they previously boycotted as grounds for new ones both in Venezuela and more recently in Bolivia which will become the next target for enslavement and so called global warming induced depopulation measures after they finish off Venezuela. it is Catch 22 . Do not fall for it, Madero! No new elections!
According to an interview with the current Foreign minister of Venezuela, the U S cut off replacing parts of the military hardware long ago . The government then made contracts with the Russians for supplies etc. In order to insure the defence of the Bolivarian state. Etc. Also advisors from Cuba have been in Venezuela for years and the Defense Minister is solid . He is Vladimir Patrino who said that they are ready for mercenary squads infiltrating the border and trying to sow chaos .
Not too long ago it would have been unthinkable for any politician to openly call for regime change, much less to dictate who should be president of a particular country. Now it’s becoming the norm, contrary to basic principles of international law. The US is not only attempting regime change in Venezuela, but is also introducing a very dangerous precedent in dictating which active politician should replace the standing political leader of a country. Looks like Washingtons imperial policies are entering a new phase. As for the Russian representative at the UN, he said it as it is.
Everyone can twitter, talk, be against and raise a finger. Only one man on this planet can kick US out of the Pig Bay in Cuba, and he is dead folks.
I have just watched the video. Fantastic speech! If Nebenzya wrote it on the go, I’m quite impressed.
I do have a question though. At 7:07 Nebenzya said “The extremist opponents of Venezuela’s legitimate government, having failed in their attempts to oust N. Maduro, including through his physical elimination, chose the most confrontational standoff scenario”.
Is it true, they tried to assassinate Maduro? Holy moly.
I didn’t know that. Of course, I no longer expect the lying mainstream media to keep me properly informed.
The main one was in 2018 during a military parade:
Thanks. Maduro was quite brave, good.
I thought that Vitaly Churkin was irreplaceable, but this guy is really good.
How long are the US and its vassals going to be able to get away with these outrages?
I can’t imagine Jill Stein pronouncing herself President of the USA, and following her recognition by multiple countries, a UNSC meeting in which Trump is sternly told that he must hold good faith negotiations with her.
Our ruling overlords are crazy, and anyone who can’t see that is either crazy or stupid.
I started thinking about this Venezuela issue and put two and two together. Koch brothers refine “junk oil” as it is called in some circles. Koch’s father was a chemist who invented a method to refine heavy oil which was dirty but the method he had was suitable to create clean usable oil/gas and profitable to boot, disregarding, of course all the environmental side effects of refining it.
In the 20’s and 30’s and to this day pollution control was by dilution in the atmosphere, free dumping into the air and rivers. When Koch Sr. came out with the method of refining heavy oil, he was sued for patent infraction by big oil. He did not have any money to fight this, so he backed off. US “isolationist” and Roosevelt socialism, at that time, were not concerned when Russians knocked on Koch Sr.’s door. Stalin invited Koch Sr. to USSR. He helped build some 20 heavy oil refineries in USSR. Stalin was a dictator, not a communist, just like many dictators today so business is business you go, like the Qwest does today where the money can be made.
When the purges started in USSR in the 30’s Koch’s cohort in Russia wound up in Siberia and Koch became enemy number one of Communism. He supported every organization that said anything negative about Communism. His support in the US including the Birch Society no different than the Koch Brothers financial support for the Fraser Institute.
When the Sr Koch died, I think in the 60’s, his four sons took over the company. The oldest Koch son 32 years of age became the Boss. They built, I think, three heavy oil refineries in US that refine “junk oil” and there is one Venezuelan refinery in Taxes as well that also refines heavy oil.
Koch’s have huge holdings in Alberta and the royalties are very low 1% and up to 4% if the price is above $50 per barrel. The production initially of heavy oil (tar Sands) was a fraction of what it is today due to Koch involvement.
Koch brothers had a family fight and much of their dealings became public in court records, including their support of pipelines and dealings in Alberta as well as Venezuela.
Alberta is in trouble, Trudeau is in trouble, Koch’s want their profits so what to do but be Nazis and attack the competition, stop their oil flow, or steal the oil through a manufactured coup d’état, which Trudeau and Trump call “democracy”. This is what Hitler did when he was cut off from his oil supplies. Rommel was unable to break through to the Middle East oil fields, the British navy bottled up the German maritime fleet, so the German strategy was to attack someone that had oil and other resources.
In 1941 they attacked the Eastern neighbor Russia. Same problem for Trudeau, Koch, Alberta situation, what to do with public opinion in Canada and US about energy jobs and potential votes.? Sidetrack the public by throwing in your hat with the HAWK Liberals and kill Venezuelans so that the Koch Brothers buy Canadian oil. This way Canadians can have jobs, Koch Brothers get $2 billion extra profit per year, US retains control over the vast oil reserves of Venezuela and keeps Venezuela using the Petro-dollar for trade. JUSTIN is an “asshole” unlike his father who was not a HAWK but a reasonable man that was not intimidated by the likes of the Koch and Trump cabal.
