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?”

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.

As most of you have heard, last week the comedy team of Trump and Pence announced an $8 billion splashdown for a new military branch, the U.S. Space Force — and are also apparently inviting submissions for the logo design.

So what are they gonna do, fight giant bugs? Actually, I’m thinking the Space Grunts are gonna be guarding Elon Musk’s gated Martian colonies for the rich.
