Washington Supports Venezuelan Opposition

by Stephen Lendman

Obama wants Bolivarianism ended.

It's an open secret. Throughout Chavez's tenure, America supported opposition candidates. Quasi-government agencies did so. They're at it again now.

They include the National Endowment for Democracy (NED), National Democratic Institute (NDI) International Republican Institute (ISI), USAID, and Development Alternatives. They supply millions of dollars. Doing so interferes lawlessly in Venezuelan elections.

In contrast, America's Federal Election Campaign Act prohibits foreign nationals from "contributing, donating or spending funds in connection with any federal, state, or local election in the United States, either directly or indirectly." 

"It is unlawful to help foreign nationals violate that ban or to solicit, receive or accept contributions or donations from them. Persons who knowingly and willfully engage in these activities may be subject to fines and/or imprisonment."

Foreign nationals include nations, political parties, corporations, partnerships, associations, other groups, individuals, and immigrants without green cards.

Do as we say, not as we do reflects US policy. In 2011, Obama requested millions of dollars. He supports Venezuelan opposition candidates. He wants them funded. America's Caracas embassy is directly involved. It's a hotbed of subversive activity.
