Defending the Embassy, Defending Liberty

By mike flugennockThursday - May 9th, 2019Categories: Trumpism, liberty, right wingnuts, war and peace

A new low was reached this week when, at the direction of the US Secret Service, Potomac Electric Power Company cut off the electricity to the Venezuelan Embassy in Washington DC, in an effort to force out members of Code Pink and other organizations there – at the invitation of the staff – defending the Embassy against a siege by thuggish supporters of the attempted putsch by US-backed fascist failson Juan “Guido” Guaidò.

This is in addition to ongoing attempts to prevent the delivery of food to the Embassy, ironically mirroring the economic warfare being waged against the people of Venezuela by the US Empire.

#VenezuelaLibre

“Hello, Mom…? It’s Juan. Can you come pick me up from coup practice?”
–Juan Guaido, “Interim President” of Venezuela, 04.30.19

I can’t pretend I didn’t enjoy watching the massive faceplant that was “Operation Liberty”, the latest attempt to topple Chavismo and install Washington darling and fascist enabler Juan “Guido” Guaido in Venezuela.

It was pure comedy gold, watching Guido’s handlers in Washington stepping on their own cranks trying to spin the events in Caracas this past week, and Guido’s flunkies seeking refuge in the Brazilian and Chilean embassies in order to continue their “provisional” shenanagans. It was like watching a coup attempt staged by Mel Brooks.

Space Force no.2: Mars Awaits

By mike flugennockSaturday - April 20th, 2019Categories: Trumpism, right wingnuts, space, war and peace

This was initially inspired by this article on Sputnik International, about the six military bases up for consideration for Space Force headquarters. After some curious digging, I’ve noticed they’ve gone from “Mars Awaits” to the slightly more modest “back to the Moon in 5 years”. Of course, the goal that’s grabbing the attention of millions of us is VP Man From GLAD’s consideration of nuclear weapons deployment in space.

Goes without saying Elon Musk is on board with the idea; I’m guessing his long game will involve a need for a few hundred Space Grunts to guard his gated Martian colonies for the rich.
