uza2-zombienationWill the Trump administration dare attack Venezuela militarily? Given its rage for endless wars, anything is possible.



^0Americans are the most over-entertained, uninformed people on the planet.

Ignorant about domestic and geopolitical issues mattering most.

The most important act anyone can do is stop using all mainstream media.

No exceptions whatsoever. It’s brainwash propaganda.

Toxic sludge for the mind.

Voices like this are NEVER heard on the mainstream media.

The "1%" is the global plutocracy, the billionaires.

A sociopathic, puny segment of humanity.

These people pretend to honor and defend democracy.

But are its murderers and undertakers.

Gross injustice, war, grotesque inequality is their handiwork.

And the murder of the planet

Just 8 billionaires own as much wealth as HALF of all humanity.

That's 8 guys are richer than 4 billion people.

The corporate media is their main line of defense.

That's why the best way to break their hold on us...

Is to break their media.

The corporate chokehold on political information is killing us.

Save humanity, the planet and its innocent creatures.

Increase public distrust in the mainstream media.

Defeat their power to mislead.

They lie 24/7. They sell you war. Injustice. Death. Confusion.

And they never stop.

Some more obviously than others, but they all lie.

So trust no one on the Big Media.

And beware of "entertainment shows".

Most also carry highly toxic imperialist propaganda.

Like the fungal NCIS series. Or "24", glorifying DHS.

The police state.

Or CBS Madam Secretary.

A ridiculous show, like The West Wing.

Telling us the US government is good.

That the president is good...that its cabinet is good.

That the US establishment—which they represent...

has noble aims. Rubbish!

Get the healing truth from citizens' media.

Like The Greanville Post and similar free voices.

Do your part to break the power of the mainstream media.

Defeat the presstitutes. The media felons.

Become a soldier in the battle of communications.

Which we must win.

As the ruling cliques prepare the world for nuclear war...

now it's a matter of survival!

  1. Stephen, while I’ve read and appreciated much of your work for years, you do Venezuela no favors with this short essay, “Venezuelans Prepare for Possible US Aggression”.

    It’s not reportage or analysis; it’s propaganda. It doesn’t deal with the “swing voter” today who’s trying to decide whether the support the Bolivarian Revolution (BR) or break ranks because there are flaws with the Vz gov’t and its policies.

    Maduro isn’t Chávez, and Chávez wasn’t perfect. Vz is a divided society. And the division isn’t neatly or fairly drawn. But it’s better to be truthful and complete when describing Vz today.

    I want to support the BR, but I want its supporters to be honest about the situation there. What must be seen is how the United States is actually undermining not only current Vzn gov’t officials, but the BR itself. There is also the US State Dept and USAID (for whom I worked for a year in Vietnam, ’66-’67, doing nasty stuff that rarely got reported or analyzed correctly, fairly). There are faux NGOs like the National Endowment for Democracy which isn’t really pro-democracy and has been quietly torpedoing the BR for almost two decades.

    Stephen, I hope you will take the time to be less rhetorical and more investigative journalistically. It does no good to white wash the failures and corruptions of many Vzn people and institutions.

    Viva the Bolivarian Revolution!
