The new president of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro, is cast in Chavez's mold. On May 4, he called US president Obama the "grand chief of devils."

Obama, who has betrayed democracy in America, unleashing execution on American citizens without due process of law and war without the consent of Congress, provoked Maduro's response by suggesting that Maduro's newly elected government might be fraudulent. Obviously, Obama is piqued that the millions of dollars his administration spent trying to elect an American puppet instead of Maduro failed to do the job.

If anyone has accurately summed up Washington, it is the Venezuelans.

Who can forget Chavez standing at the podium of the UN General Assembly in New York City speaking of George W. Bush? Quoting from memory: "Right here, yesterday, at this very podium stood Satan himself, speaking as if he owned the world. You can still smell the sulphur."

Hegemonic Washington threw countless amounts of money into the last Venezuelan election, doing its best to deliver the governance of that country to a Washington puppet called Henrique Capriles, in my opinion a traitor to Venezuela. Why isn't this American puppet arrested for treason? Why are not the Washington operatives against an independent country -- the US ambassador, the counsels, the USAID/CIA personnel, the Washington funded NGOs -- ordered to leave Venezuela immediately or arrested and tried for spying and high treason? Why allow any presence of Washington in Venezuela when it is clear that Washington's intention is to make Venezuela a puppet state like the UK, Germany, Canada, Australia, Turkey, Japan, and on and on.

There was a time, such as in the Allende-Pinochet era, when the American left-wing and a no longer extant liberal media would have been all over Washington for its illegal interference in the internal affairs of an independent country. But no more. As CounterPunch's Jeffrey St. Clair has recently made clear, the American left-wing remains "insensate to the moral and constitutional transgressions being committed by their champion" -- the first black, or half-black, US president -- leaving "Rand Paul to offer official denunciations concerning [Washington's] malignant operations" against independent countries.

Against the Obama regime's acts of international and domestic violence, "the professional Left -- from the progressive caucus to the robotic minions of Moveon.org -- lodge no objections and launch no protests." St. Clair has written a powerful article. Read it for yourself here.

I think the American left-wing lost its confidence when the Soviet Union collapsed and the Chinese communists and Indian socialists turned capitalist. Everyone misread the situation, especially the "end of history" idiots. The consequence is a world without strong protests of Washington's and its puppet states' war criminal military aggressions, murder, destruction of civil liberty and human rights, and transparent propaganda: "Last night Polish forces crossed the frontier and attacked Germany," or so declared Adolf Hitler. Washington's charges of "weapons of mass destruction" are even more transparent lies.

But hardly any care. The Western governments and Japan are all paid off and bought, and those that are not bought are begging to be bought because they want the money too. Truth, integrity, these are dead-letter words. No one any longer knows what they mean.

The moronic George W. Bush said, in Orwellian double-speak, they hate us for our freedom and democracy. They don't hate us because we bomb them, invade them, kill them, destroy their way of life, culture, and infrastructure. They hate us because we are so good. How stupid does a person have to be to believe this BS?

Washington and Israel present the world with unmistakable evil. I don't need to stand at the UN podium after Bush or Obama. I can smell Washington's evil as far away as Florida. Jeffrey St. Clair can smell it in Oregon. Nicolas Maduro can smell it in Venezuela. Evo Morales can smell it in Bolivia from where he cast out CIA-infiltrated USAID. Putin can smell it in Russia, although he still permits the treasonous "Russian opposition" funded by US money to operate against Russia's government. The Iranians can smell it in the Persian Gulf. The Chinese can smell it as far away as Beijing.

Homeland Security, a gestapo institution, has "crisis actors" to help it deceive the public in its false flag operations.

The Obama regime has drones with which to silence American citizens without due process of law.

Homeland Security has more than a billion rounds of ammunition, tanks, a para-military force. Detention camps have been built.

Are Americans so completely stupid that they believe this is all for "terrorists" whose sparse numbers require the FBI to manufacture "terrorists" in so-called "sting operations" in order to justify the FBI's $3 billion special fund from Congress to combat domestic terrorism?
