Not A Coup: Venezuela In Chaos

This is not a drill, and despite the blathering by CNN, it’s not a coup. Juan Guaido, the constitutionally-recognized interim leader of Venezuela, has called upon the military to stand with him in order to remove Nicolas Maduro and his Russian-backed regime.

The dramatic events come after Guaido, alongside detained activist Leopoldo Lopez, called for a military uprising Tuesday morning in his boldest action to oust socialist leader Nicolas Maduro.”

“The armed forces have taken the right decision,” Guaido said earlier Tuesday. “With the support of the Venezuelan people and the backing of our constitution, they are on the right side of history.”

He added: “The moment is now.”

The 35-year-old leader of the opposition-led National Assembly and a small contingent of heavily armed soldiers appeared in an early morning video promoting the “final phase” of his putsch to oust Maduro.”

The United States, which has supported Guaido’s claim as interim president of Venezuela, offered its support of the opposition and its supporters.”

And today has turned into a no-holds-barred day in Venezuela. Senator Marco Rubio, who has been continually promoting and highlighting the plight of the Venezuelan people on his Twitter feed over the last several months, had this message today:

The Trump administration confirmed again that it recognizes Guaido as the interim president of Venezuela, and Vice President Pence, Secretary Pompeo, and John Bolton all tweeted messages of support for Venezuela.

The key to getting Maduro out of power is the military. The National Guard must rally to Guaido in order to remove Maduro. Civilians are in the streets, protesting.

And there is bloodshed on the ground. Maduro is not going to leave without a fight. Dictators never do.

And there is a concerted effort by Maduro and his thugs to cut off all social media and get the images off the air – with apparent help from China.

This is one of those moments where the good guys and the bad guys are pretty obvious. And yet CNN’s Jim Scuitto is all worried that the United States is “supporting a coup.”

Wait, we thought Russia was bad… now it’s not? Anyone else confused here? Fortunately, Marco Rubio is having none of that.

Pray for Venezuela. Pray that the military really will rally to Guaido’s side and to protect the civilian population from the Maduro thugs. And pray that Guaido and the people of Venezuela stand firm.
