As US politicians are putting rhetoric against Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro into high gear, US President Donald Trump gave a speech in Miami calling for Maduro to step down and for an end to socialism in Latin America.

Attorney and author Kevin Zeese joins News.Views.Hughes to argue that calls for regime-change in Venezuela constitute a US push to seize Venezuelans’ natural resources and that President Nicolas Maduro has the support of the Venezuelan people, that economic sanctions and a global drop in oil prices are behind the country’s economic problems and that “the people of Venezuela oppose US domination.”
Here’s the bullet-point version:
- It’s imperialism.
- It’s American imperialism, a bipartisan national project.
- American imperialism is the global management of capitalist class power.
- It’s a binary situation in which one side or the other will win via the use and threat of armed force.
- It’s trouble for Venezuela and for imperialism.
- There’s no such thing as Progressive Except Imperialism.

The end of America’s unchallenged global economic dominance has arrived sooner than expected, thanks to the very same Neocons who gave the world the Iraq, Syria and the dirty wars in Latin America.

It takes a lot for anything anybody in the Insane Clown Trump administration says to get my attention these days. The longtime Exxon-Mobil CEO and current United State Secretary of State Rex Tillerson did the trick with these 48 words two days ago: “We are evaluating all of our policy options as to what can we do to create a change of conditions where either Maduro decides he doesn’t have a future and wants to leave of his own accord or we can return the government processes back to their constitution.”
