WAYNE MADSEN: Trump Recognition Of Rival Venezuelan Government Will Set Off Diplomatic Avalanche

U.S. interventionism in South America devolves to Nixon era  

By Wayne Madsen

The Trump administration’s January 23 recognition of Venezuela’s National Assembly leader, Juan Guaidó, as the president of Venezuela, in opposition to the “de facto” and “de jure” president of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro, threatens an avalanche of nations recognizing leaders of various political factions in countries around the world as legitimate governments. 

In reaction to Trump’s move, Maduro severed diplomatic relations with Washington and ordered all US embassy personnel in Caracas to leave the country within 72-hours. Venezuela’s opposition-controlled National Assembly declared a caretaker government as a rival to the Maduro government with Guaidó as the interim president. Maduro was recently sworn in for a second term as Venezuela’s president, an action that has been rejected by the US-financed Venezuelan right-wing opposition. 

US Vice President Mike Pence declared “the United States’ resolute support for the National Assembly of Venezuela as the only legitimate democratic body in the country.” Luis Almagro, the secretary general of the Washington-based Organization of American States (OAS), previously referred to Guaidó as Venezuela’s “interim president.” OAS members Canada, Colombia, Brazil, Peru, and Argentina stand ready to recognize Guaidó as president of a rival Venezuelan government. Mexico has rejected the anti-Maduro stance of the “Lima Group,” a right-wing bloc of Latin American states demanding Maduro’s ouster.

We may soon see a situation where the governments of the United States, Canada, Argentina, Brazil, and other countries declare Venezuelan diplomatic personnel accredited by the Maduro government expelled and their embassies turned over to loyalists of the Guaidó government. With the severance of Venezuelan relations with the United States, the Trump administration may turn over the keys of the Venezuelan embassy in Washington to the Guaidó-led opposition.

PRESIDENT REAGAN INFORMED PINOCHET'S ROLE WAS "a blatant example of a chief of state's direct involvement in an act of state terrorism"

A similar situation has already been experienced by Syria. In 2013, the Syrian opposition established a rival “interim government” based in Azaz, Syria, that was in opposition to the “de facto” and “de jure” government of President Bashar al-Assad in Damascus. 

The “interim government” was backed by Turkey, the United States, Saudi Arabia, and others, but it has all-but-dissolved following Assad’s overall victory in the Syrian civil war. Assad’s government retained the support of Russia, Iran, Iraq, China, North Korea, and Venezuela. What portends for Venezuela is a situation that will rapidly be copied by other countries that will rush to recognize rival presidents and governments, perhaps even extending support to the establishment of governments-in-exile. 

Such situations will only add to the destabilization of international relations that already permeates the globe.

There are several diplomatic “dominos” that are following the example of Venezuela. The most pressing situation is in the Democratic Republic of Congo, where opposition leader Félix Tshisekedi was declared the winner of the nation’s contentious presidential election, receiving 38.57 percent of the vote. Tshisekedi is due to replace outgoing president Joseph Kabila. 

Obama: Big oil prostitute
However, supporters of another presidential candidate, Martin Fayulu, have called the former ExxonMobil executive the actual winner of the DRC election. Fayulu won 34.8 percent of the vote. Emmanuel Ramazani Shadary, a third candidate, who was backed by Kabila, decisively lost, receiving 23.8 percent of the vote.

Already, thanks to the American example being set in Venezuela, various countries are lining up to support either Tshisekedi or Fayulu as the leaders of rival DRC governments. The DRC has a tortured history of rival governments, starting from its independence in 1960. 

After Prime Minister Patrice Lumumba was deposed in a Central Intelligence Agency-led coup in 1960, leftist leader and Lumumba deputy prime minister Antoine Gizenga established the Free State of the Congo in Stanleyville (now Kisangani) as a rival to the Republic of the Congo in Leopoldville (now Kinshasa). Gizenga’s government was recognized by the Soviet Union, China, Mongolia, Poland, East Germany, Yugoslavia, Albania, Bulgaria, Hungary, Czechoslovakia, Cuba, Iraq, the United Arab Republic, Ghana, Guinea, the Algerian provisional government, and Morocco. The Leopoldville government continued to be recognized by the United States, United Kingdom, France, Belgium, and other Western countries.

It all began here, when Obama cut heating aid for U.S. seniors and Hugo Chavez offered free oil to U.S. poor - oil companies stomped the aid flat and ordered Obama/CIA to retaliate

A secessionist State of Katanga, led by Moise Tshombe and supported by Belgian mercenaries, was established in Elisabethville (now Lubumbashi). At the same time as the Katangan secession, the State of South Kasai was proclaimed in Bakwanga, with Albert Kalonji as president. Although no nation extended diplomatic relations to either Katanga or South Kasai, they received military support from France, Belgium, South Africa, and the Central African Federation (also known as the Federation of Rhodesia and Nyasaland).

In a case of déjà vu, the Tshisekedi presidency is supported by South Africa, Zimbabwe, Nigeria, Algeria, Russia, and China, while Fayulu has the backing of France, Belgium, United Kingdom, the United States, and the Vatican. Zambia, whose president originally backed Fayulu and called for a recount, changed its position to support Tshisekedi. The DRC seemed to have slipped into a time machine, ending up in 1960, with some of the same foreign actors lining up on the same sides in support of rival Congolese leaders.

In Yemen, there are rival governments backed by rival countries. Two leaders claim to be the leaders of the Republic of Yemen. One is led by interim president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, who largely rules from exile in Saudi Arabia. 

The other, which has occupied the Yemeni capital of Sana’a, is led by Mohammed Ali al-Houthi, the President of the Revolutionary Committee of Yemen. Saudi Arabia and the Gulf Cooperation Council nations of Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar, United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, and Oman, as well as the United States, Egypt, and Pakistan, recognize Hadi’s government as the legitimate government of Yemen. Iran, Syria, and Lebanese Hezbollah recognize al-Houthi as the legitimate government of Yemen. Supporters of the former independent South Yemen took control of Aden in January 2018 and established the Southern Transitional Council, which, although not enjoying any diplomatic recognition, enjoys the support of the United Arab Emirates.

The Trump administration, which appears to thrive on chaos and instability at home and abroad, has given a jump start to other rival governments. Washington is encouraging nationalist sentiments, both Chinese and Taiwanese, on Taiwan.  The “Republic of China” on Taiwan claims to be the government of China. However, the People’s Republic of China considers Taiwan to be a renegade province. China and Taiwan have vied for diplomatic advantage by engaging in “checkbook diplomacy.” China has been successful in weaning away nations recognizing Taiwan by offering them substantial aid packages in return for establishing relations with Beijing and severing them with Taiwan.

With the Trump administration advancing the concept of extending diplomatic relations to rebellious political leaders, other effects of this dangerous policy will soon be felt in nations with rival political power centers or secessionist claims. These include Somalia, Libya, the Central African Republic, Afghanistan, Mali, Equatorial Guinea, Vietnam, Laos, Gabon, Nigeria, Niger, Kenya, Zimbabwe, Madagascar, Myanmar, Ethiopia, Turkey, Iran, Iraq, Sri Lanka, Egypt, Cameroon, Nigeria, and Comoros.

Extending diplomatic relations to rival governments, including those in exile, rarely succeed. After the fall of the Spanish Republic in 1939 to the fascist forces of Generalissimo Francisco Franco, the Spanish Republic established a government-in-exile, first in France, and then in Mexico. During its exiled existence, the Spanish Republic was only recognized by Mexico, Panama, Guatemala, Venezuela, Poland, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Yugoslavia, Romania, and Albania.

The plans by the Trump administration to recognize the right-wing opposition in Venezuela as the legitimate government of that nation is as doomed as the Spanish Republic in exile in Mexico and other failed exiled governments, including the East Turkestani government-in-exile in Washington, the Western Kurdistan government-in-exile in London, and the Free City of Danzig government-in-exile in Berlin.

What Trump has unleashed with his actions directed toward Venezuela is a situation where competing governments will be fighting over seats in the United Nations, embassies and consulates abroad, and the right to speak on behalf of their countries in international forums. It is the sort of bedlam upon which Trump, a proud destroyer of institutions, thrives.

It is increasingly being said that Trump’s White House consists of a team of “morons” and “idiots.” When it comes to the White House recognizing Venezuela’s right-wing opposition as the government of Venezuela, those appellations for Trump and his administration have definite merit.

Pedophiles Now Claiming They Deserve Rights

LGBT deviants pushing legalisation of pedophilia  


Pedophiles are people who are sexually attracted to children. 

SATANC: LGBT deviants cover for pedophiles
In many instances, the act of attraction isn’t illegal, but any action that comes about as a consequence of that is not only highly illegal but incredibly scarring to the children involved. Taking advantage of children in this way is — and this shouldn’t need to be stated — wrong and grotesque. It’s a terrible abuse of human rights. Among many other things, actions that take place with from the provocation of pedophilia goes against article 3 of the universal declaration of human rights, the right to life (in which you’re entitled to live with both freedom and safety). 

Which leads to the correct assumption that if one is affected by this horrible mental disorder they need to immediately seek help in order to protect those around them and themselves. So why are people trying to force pedophile acceptance?

“Pedophilia is the same as homosexuality,” claims a speaker in this video advocating for pedophiles to not only be accepted, but respected in society. Within this video, pedophiles appear to be trying to rationalise their perversion by claiming that their minority is akin to that of POC or people in the LGBTQ+ community. They’re trying to impose their agenda upon liberals and make it appear as though they are one and the same. 

LGBT pedophiles attempt to hijack "science" as they did with homosexuality in order to justify child molestation

This cannot be allowed to happen. Not only do they come with a terrible stigma attached, but to associate this abhorrent cause with the struggle of those in the LGBTQ+ community (etc.) is degrading and dehumanising.

Being attracted to the same gender is not on par with being attracted to someone who cannot consent. 

NAMBLA pedophiles 

Should anything occur, the latter would be classified as rape. Pedophilia itself is not illegal, however the spokespeople within the video are advocating for:

The legalization of all tender and sexual relationships between adults and children (0:09).

Twitter bans conservative accounts while allowing and promoting those of LGBT pedophiles

Having said that, scientifically, pedophilia is a mental disorder. If you’re struggling with it, this might be a good website to seek the help that you need, therapy is also a good option. If you’re scared to go to therapy here is a list of U.S. laws that deal with the sexual exploitation of children so that you can get familiar with them prior to your appointment. 

You are also encouraged to do your own research. As an extra, here is a website based in Germany that promises confidential help. While it is a mental disorder the consequences of what may come about are too damaging to others around you, especially those who are still developing both mentally and physically, to be treated similarly to mental illnesses such as depression. For those who are not affected by this mental disorder, it is also important to separate pedophiles from child molestors. If someone confides in you about their urges, please assist them in finding help. 

The act of isolation not only minimises the chance of the pedophile seeking help, therefore heightening the risk of those around them, but also pushes them deeper within their own minds which can be dangerous. 

If you are seeking help and haven’t acted upon anything, please truthfully stress that you “haven’t acted upon your urges, nor viewed any child pornography” when conversing with your therapist, as is recommended by The Atlantic.

It can be difficult to seek help, but the acceptance that is preached by those in this video is disgusting. Abolishing the age of consent, claiming that having sex with a child isn’t wrong but rather society is wrong and believing that underage sex with a much older adult is not harmful – are all incorrect statements and serve to encourage child molestation make it harder for those who want to seek help. 

Moreover, the continued presence of this videos serves to convince those who are vulnerable that this is the ‘right way’. “Violating a child who has no understanding of what sexual activity entails is against the law,” this website reminds us.

So when it occurs, why is pedophilia couple with child molestation bad? This hardly needs to be answered, but if you are in need of a refresher course here are a few basic points.
  • Children cannot consent. They do not have the capacity or knowledge in order for them to be able to consent to the sexual whims of an adult. Therefore all such encounters with children will be rape and illegal wherever you are.
  • Children are not developed enough — mentally or physically.
  • Children are malleable, and encounters such as this can scar them for the rest of their life. Should anything like this happen, the adult would be guilty of an extreme amount of power.
  • If pedophiles do not physically engage with children themselves, but view child pornography online – this employs people in the business of abusing children. People are getting paid to commit atrocious acts to minors through the views that they get.
