No US intervention in Venezuela

The U.S. is orchestrating a coup in Venezuela that is likely to lead to bloodshed — even civil war. Instead of meddling the internal affairs of another country, the U.S. should be supporting peaceful dialogue facilitated by mediators such as Mexico, Uruguay, and the Pope. We have seen, and are seeing now at the U.S.-Mexico border, the effects of past U.S. backed coups in Latin America — Guatemala in 1953, Chile in 1973, Honduras in 2009. It always turns out disastrous for the people.

Senator Markley has introduced legislation making it clear to President Trump that without congressional authorization - authorization he does NOT have - he may not use military force in Venezuela. Representative David Cicilline has introduced similar legislation in the House

Send a message to your Senators and Representative telling them to cosponsor S.J.Res.11 in the Senate and H.R.1004 in the House to prevent Trump, Bolton, and Abrams from being able to send the U.S. military to intervene in Venezuela.


Dear Congress,

The U.S. has a long and sordid history of supporting coups in Latin America — Guatemala in 1953, Chile in 1973, Honduras in 2009 — and it always turned out disastrous for the people. It’s urgent that you not let the Trump administration send the U.S. military to intervene in Venezuela.

U.S. economic sanctions have devastated Venezuela’s economy, creating food and medicine shortages, widespread poverty, and mass migration. The people of Venezuela need sanctions to be lifted and dialogue between the Maduro government and the opposition to be facilitated — Mexico and Uruguay have offered to mediate, as has the Pope. A democratic process, not a coup, must be supported.

Please co-sponsor Senator Jeff Merkley and Representative David Cicilline’s legislation - S.J.Res.11 in the Senate and H.R.1004 in the House - making it clear to President Trump that without congressional authorization, military force may not be used in Venezuela. After becoming an original co-sponsor of the bills, please encourage revision of the bill’’s to include very important language on the harm being done to the Venezuelan people by the sanctions and the need for dialogue - facilitated by Mexico, Uruguay, and the Pope - to move forward to address this crisis, rather than the US coup strategy.

Thank you.

Sincerely,

    Kudos to Senator Markley for defending the legislature’s war powers!


    IMHO the core issue is that our leaders are not representing the American people and the American people are not being given accurate news.


    We should Create Constitutional Amendments to box out any ability for US politicians (and with some restrictions, their family) to control their money during or after their terms in office. Other than salary, all other income and assets should go into blind trust forever. All future income on labor is capped (help eliminate the $500,000 speeches and 8 figure salaries at Goldman) at $200k per year inflation adjusted. All laws broken are punished at 3X the current laws. All laws broken built on these new ConstitutIonal Amendments shall have the most extreme punishments …decades to life in prison and massive fines. All levels get term limits. This will get the sociopaths and careerists out of out government and help encourage smart and dedicated people who want to serve their country.If you want to make millions and billions then go ahead, just do it before you decide to go into political office or better yet, just stay out of politics. All campaigns should be publicly financed. A large swath of news should be reported with no advertising revenue. Tax payer money will be allotted to local, state, and federal newspapers.


    Once we get the careerists and sociopaths out of office, we can elect leaders who will represent the people.

    A nation that cannot control its own cruel, sadistic, criminal of a president & government, has NO business telling any other sovereign government what THEY should do! It’s a case of M.Y.O.D.B.!! The only Regime that must be changed IS OUR OWN! Work on controlling ours, then maybe you’ll regain credibility with others.
