Maybe Donald Trump is trying to pivot back to Venezuela?
Things got real hot with Iran. Too hot for a guy that fat and orange, what with all the cholesterol issues he has.
He’s probably saying: “C’mon Jared, please Jared, can we just go back to threatening Venezuela, Jared? Jared, I don’t want everyone to hate me, Jared. That lesbian soccer player is telling people to hate me, Jared – please.”
Venezuelan intelligence says it has foiled an assassination attempt against President Nicolas Maduro, which envisioned a group of rogue officers storming the presidential palace and installing an imprisoned general in his stead.
The plot by current and former military officers involved breaking retired General Raúl Isaías Baduel out from a maximum security prison in Fuerte Tiuna, where he is kept since 2017 for wanting to overthrow the government, and seizing state-run Venezolana de Televisió where he would be pronounced president. Intelligence agencies said they had been unraveling the plot for 14 months.
The main part of the plan that was scheduled for June 23-24, involved assassinating Maduro and leader of the National Constituent Assembly Diosdado Cabello, while seizing the Miraflores presidential palace as well as the Carlota military base in Caracas.
“140,000 seized cartridges for machine guns and several combat groups were predetermined to be used to capture president Nicolas Maduro,” Minister of Communications and Culture Jorge Rodriguez told the nation on Wednesday, announcing the arrests of conspirators.
This could have just been invented by Maduro to brag about how he stops a coup every other day. Or Trump could be ready to pivot.
It’s the Biblical Apocalypse and this is a clown show.
