    While The Americans Are Dealing With An Orchestrated Government Shutdown, The Trump Administration Has Staged A Coup In Venezuela


    Once again, Washington has installed another of its puppet dictators, this time in Venezuela, which is why Washington orchestrated this latest government shutdown that induced mass hysteria in the Amerikkkan people, just as it was designed to do. Amerikkkans obediently followed the ‘government shutdown bouncing ball’ which was orchestrated in order to cause the most harm by ensuring that federal workers lose their income while at the same time causing those who rely on federal programs to fear the loss of housing and food assistance even as Washington intends to allow multinational corporations to steal and abscond with everything in Venezuela that is not nailed down, especially its oil, gas and gold since Washington’s puppet dictator will allow Washington to dictate his every move. The U.S. does not intend to collapse without leaving a lasting impression.

    Exxon has brainwashed many of us to hate Venezuela. If Maduro wanted Essequibo, he would have invaded us a long time ago.

    The scary part is that some of the street vendors here are afraid of Exxon, as they like to chat anything except American oil companies.

    If America invades Venezuela, our population will increase tenfold, and the interior will be populated by Venezuelans.

    The PPP rejects working as Ministers of the AFC have lauded that “we” will become Arabs living in Gulf states. This scares me because America is friendly with a Saudi dictatorship, and if Indians believe that the paltry oil money will automatically make them into Saudi royalty, then this is worse than Maduro invading us.

    Exxon will suck all 6 billion oil barrels dry, and we will be worse off than if the oil wasn’t discovered magically after Venezuela was sanctioned by the USA.
