Important Fish to Fry

First of all, huge thanks to Kate Nocera at Buzzfeed News for tweeting that inspiring quote from the Speaker.

So, now, folks… considering her enabling of fascism, her support for an obscene war budget, her desperate opposition to Medicare For All, and her bitter refusal to hold a criminal Executive to account – a tendency going back to Bush v2.0 – I have to ask myself: who are the “important fish” that Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats are needing to fry?

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.

“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.
