America’s meddling in Venezuela has no boundaries. After a failed coup attempt, trying to install a bogus president, and imposing crippling sanctions, will it ever be held to account?

Venezuela is back in the news again, just weeks after yet another failed coup attempt that was almost certainly backed by the US. This time, it’s the American sanctions against the country that are making the headlines – measures that caused US company AT&T to shut down satellite TV provider, DirecTV, thereby depriving Venezuelans of a number of foreign channels.

The irony, of course, is that while it’s US sanctions that are the cause of this shutdown, had it been President Nicolás Maduro who closed DirecTV, you can bet Western media headlines would be screaming about censorship of the media (although most were rather quiet when Estonia shut down Sputnik.).

Daesh terrorists Confess Terrorism Done In Coordination With US Occupation Forces

SANA, May 14:
 
“Through a security operation, that was launched in cooperation with Syrian citizens in al-Badyah (Syrian semi-desert), an ambush has targeted a group from Daesh terrorist organization, including 6 persons.
 
The security operation ended up with killing three of the groups and arresting the three others.
 
…The three terrorists, in a program broadcast on the Syrian TV on Thursday, confessed to perpetrating different terrorist operations, inducing acts of killing, execution, abduction, acts of sabotage and destruction of public and private properties.
 
They confessed that a number of the operations were done in coordination between leaders of Daesh terrorists and the US occupation forces positioned in al-Tanf area on the Syrian-Jordanian borders.”
 
 
 
So when last year I interviewed being evacuated from Rukban Camp, and they told me about the US working with terrorists in al-Tanf region… they were correct, to the silence of the corporate media who attempted to blame Syria & Russia for the extremely harsh conditions and starvation there…

Scientist Behind “Lockdown” Doesn’t Actually Believe In, Or Abide By, His Own Fear Porn Advice

Scientist who promoted the lockdown doesn’t actually believe in the need for physical distancing. Shocker🙄

Alrighty. If lockdowns are soooo necessary to save the world from Covid, why did the man behind the UK lockdown hypocritically violate it (for sex, okay, urges, we get it)?

For people who are unwillingly imprisoned in their homes, doesn’t this piss you right off?

Double-standards. And he isn’t the only one. Canada’s Trudeau violated his own “stay home” warning, saying “enough is enough! Go home and stay home!”

Justin Trudeau’s a ‘giant hypocrite’ for going to the cottage after saying physical-distancing rules are for everyone:

“Trudeau also crossed provincial boundaries. (Harrington Lake is in Quebec.) Another no-no.

And he brought with him his security detail and serving staff — an entire royal entourage — which means he brought with him more than a dozen potentially infected people. CONTINUE READING

Damascus walks, April 26-28, Stores Re-Opened, Life in Streets

During my hours-long daily walks all around Damascus, I’ve been delighted to note (as always) the calm and people interacting as normal on the streets, but also the re-opening of stores. That started over a week ago, with shops (non-essential) re-opening on alternate days. As of some days ago, they are allowed to open daily till 5 pm. CONTINUE READING

Damascus life & calm

 

Scenes from April 21, walking through old Damascus, where shops have re-opened partially and where calm and humanity prevail

The government has been taking precautions but not being draconian  about it. Curfew from 6 pm-6am has changed to from 7:30 pm during Ramadan. Shops  open varying days to allow each sector to open and earn a living (and  allow people the means to get goods they need other than groceries &  pharmaceuticals). Although streets were never empty in previous weeks, now there are still more people on the streets, interacting, smiling, staying sane, taking care of one another.
