    Trump need learn that we are not living in the stone age, because there are international laws and Convention. Geneva Convention 1961, and its article 22 and 45 declared embassies as inviolable territory. Please respect the sovereign jurisdiction of Venezuela embassies

    No regime change for oil. Bolton, Trump, Cruz, Pompeo and Abrams are advocating for actions that are against international law and endanger Democracy and diplomatic relations around the world.

    USA out of Venezuelan domestic politics! Let Venezuelans rule their own nation. They have elected Nicolas Maduro to be their president in a clean election certified by 140 international observers. The current push is by and for the 1% corporatists who want to get their hands on the largest oil reserve in the world. “Ya Basta” Enough is Enough! Hands Off Venezuela!

    Trump and his crime family has become a lawless entity, they defied Congress and Congress has declared a Constitutional crisis, because Trump has gone Rogue and is now acting like a dictator. Trump is no longer acknowledging Constitutional law or any other laws of the United States of America. Trump is going after the oil in Venezuela and is ramping up a war in Iran.

    Trump has sent an Air Craft Carrier to Iran and B 52 Bombers to Qatar. We are on the Cusp of war with Iran and a Coup in Venezuela, Trump wants all the oil for the people we works for the Fossil fuel industry.

    Exactly in May, a year ago, Nicolas Maduro was re-elected by 6,190 millions votes. With the 98,78 percent of the votes counted, the Electoral National Center gave the official results. The total participation was 46 percent, amounting to 8,360 votes . Out of these, 6,190 millions went to Maduro who won this presidential election with nearly 68 percent of these votes cast by Venezuelan people. US government need and must respect the Venezuela people’ will and self -determination and sovereign of Venezuela people and stop meddling in other nations’ nternal affair.

    Here’s a copy of a letter I sent to my local newspaper Newsday, which so far has not published it. Feel free to edit it or politically use it in any way

    The Double Standards of Trump’s Imperialistic Foreign Policy
    Our government denounces Venezuela President Maduro as having been elected in an illegitimate election…..Meanwhile, much of the American public is outraged that Trump was elected with his campaign officials aware of and involved in Russia’s interference in our 2016 electoral process, to the extent that many Americans question whether Trump would have been elected without Russian interference.
    So that means if President Trump’s election were to be declared illegitimate by the anti-Trump opposition, Trump’s base and the American public would be okay if a foreign country politically and financially supported someone from this opposition (e.g. Kirsten Gillibrand) who proclaimed themself to be the legitimate president of the United States, as the opposition leader Juan Guaido has done in Venezuela?
    And if this foreign country threatened the United States with possible military intervention if President Trump remained in power, would Trump’s base and the American public also be okay with that?

    And if the same foreign government imposed illegal economic sanctions on the United States, hoping that the suffering inflicted by the sanctions would result in the American people embracing their newly self-proclaimed opposition president, that would be okay too?
    And if officials from the same foreign government mentioned that they were also motivated to promote regime change so that their country would financially profit from our natural resources, as Trump’s National Security Advisor John Bolton has boldly expressed our government’s interest in Venezuela’s oil reservcs, would Trump’s supporters and the American public be okay with that?

    Or would Trump’s supporters and the American people instead be OUTRAGED that a foreign government was violating international law and interfering in our internal electoral affairs???
    Like all bullies, we have the superior power to enforce double standards, but does that make our double standard fair and just?….What do you think?

    Humanity’s only possibility of existing is threading the needle, each one reach one, teach one to turn 360 degrees around, back to the evolution and the future it will only have if we each do. Walking nature’s balance, giving back to it’s abundance, “…we(e),…”, of illimitable potential, indivisible as life, are to be this day what it is to be this day. Thanx :) reality (diffabled, non-socialist green)

    I am ashamed as a citizen of our great nation the way our foreign policy is to not accept another countries election just because we don’t like the out come. We have earned the name “ugly American” many times over. It is time to show the world we are the nation we claim to be! No invasions!
