The Peace Report on Jan 29, 2019

Venezuela has been the recent target of U.S. imperialism with a U.S.-backed coup attempt on Jan 23rd where Juan Guaido self-proclaimed himself (with support from the U.S.) the new president of the country in order to unseat the current democratically-elected president Nicolas Maduro. Will Griffin discusses the history of U.S. imperialism in Venezuela, the Bolivarian Revolution that is ongoing, and the current situation in the country with journalist Paul Dobson from Venezuela Analysis.

‘State of Empire’ & Perpetual War will Bankrupt Us – Col. Wilkerson

RT America on Jan 28, 2019

Rick Sanchez explains why we ought to be skeptical about recent reports of US and Taliban achieving “a framework to a plan that would allow principals toward peace.” The same people who orchestrated failed US efforts in both Iraq and Afghanistan are now seemingly in control of the White House, Congress and the US Media. We’ll also hear from Rick’s exclusive interview with retired US Army Colonel and former State Dept. official Lawrence Wilkerson, who saw such machinations first-hand and is convinced that US elites accept perpetual war as a condition of US world hegemony and that endless wars of empire has become “our reason to exist.”

New Oil Sanctions on Venezuela: “Would Destroy What’s Left of its Economy”

TheRealNews on Jan 30, 2019

National Security Advisor John Bolton announced that the US will freeze Venezuelan assets and block oil payments for Venezuelan oil imports to the US. This would not only be illegal, but would also be yet another crippling blow to the country, says CEPR’s Mark Weisbrot.
