Venezuelan Assemblyman: I Suggest Bernie Sanders ‘Go to Venezuela Without Bodyguards’ for a Week

by Nicholas Ballasy, PJ Media:

Jose Guerra, a member of the National Assembly legislature in Venezuela, told PJM that Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-Vt.) should live in Venezuela for an extended period of time without bodyguards to see how bad the humanitarian crisis is in the country under Nicolas Maduro’s dictatorship.

Guerra was asked for his opinion of politicians such as Sanders not referring to Maduro as a dictator.

“Maybe they misunderstand what is going on in Venezuela. It’s a dictatorship. There’s no power separation and more than 400 political prisoners that have been prosecuted like me. It’s a new dictatorship,” Guerra said during a recent video interview. “Those people should go to Venezuela and live in Venezuela for a couple of weeks in order to have a very good picture of what is going on in Venezuela. I suggest that they go to Venezuela.”

DC’s Atlantic Council Raked in Funding from Hunter Biden’s Corruption-Stained Ukrainian Employer While Courting His VP Father

by Max Blumenthal, Consortium News:

Max Blumenthal reports on the think tank’s shady arrangement with Burisma, the gas company at the center of  “Ukrainegate.” 

With its relentless focus on corruption in Russia and Ukraine, the Atlantic Council has distinguished itself from other top-flight think tanks in Washington. Over the past several years, it has held innumerable conferences and panel discussions, issued a string of reports, and published literally hundreds of essays on Russia’s “kleptocracy” and the scourge of Kremlin disinformation.

Victory or Fire: That’s the Plan for Hong Kong

by Tom Luongo, Tom Luongo:

It’s become quite clear to me that the situation in Hong Kong is now about regime change through economic terrorism. What started as peaceful protests against an extradition law and worry over reunification with China has morphed into an ugly and vicious assault on the city’s economic future.

These are being perpetrated by the so-called “Block Bloc,” roving bands of mask-wearing, police-tactic defying vandals attacking randomly around the city to disrupt people going to work.

Pepe Escobar has been doing exemplary work in recent months covering the ins and outs of Asian politics. His latest article covers the “Black Bloc,” their tactics and who’s likely behind them in Hong Kong.

Economic Hitmen and Neoliberalism — The Truth About What’s Happening in Ecuador

by Dylan Charles, Activist Post:

The South American nation of Ecuador has been in the throes of a bloody populist revolution for nearly two weeks now. On October 3rd, 2019, President Lenín Moreno announced the enactment of Decree 883 which effectively ended decades of government fuel subsidies, causing the price of gasoline and diesel to jump sharply overnight.

In a televised speech on Oct. 3, Moreno announced executive order 883 which “liberates the price of diesel and extra gasoline,” justifying his decision by saying that the Ecuadorean state allocates more than US$1.3 billion a year in fuel subsidies.

A day later prices increased by 25 to 120 percent starting, as the gallon of gasoline will go from US$1.85 to US$2.30. While diesel, used by most freight transport, will increase from US$1.03 to US$2.27. A measure that was part of the US$4.2 billion deal with the International Monetary Fund. [Source]

Former Israeli Intel Official Claims Jeffrey Epstein, Ghislaine Maxwell Worked for Israel

from Collective Evolution:

  • The Facts:This article was written by a Whitney Webb, a MintPress News journalist based in Chile. It was originally published at Mintpressnews.com, posted here with permission.
  • Reflect On:Was Jeffrey Epstein’s sexual blackmail enterprise was an Israel intelligence operation run for the purpose o entrapping powerful individuals and politicians?

Since the apparent death by suicide of Jeffrey Epstein in a Manhattan prison, much has come to light about his depraved activities and methods used to sexually abuse underage girls and entrap the rich and powerful for the purposes of blackmail. Epstein’s ties to intelligence, described in-depth in a recent MintPress investigative series, have continued to receive minimal mainstream media coverage, which has essentially moved on from the Epstein scandal despite the fact that his many co-conspirators remain on the loose.

President Trump Kicks Over the Chessboard of British Geopolitics

by Harley Schlanger, LaRouche PAC:

By announcing the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Syria, and an end to the Bush-Obama policy of perennial wars; by personally and movingly addressing the American people on how the hardest thing he has to do as President is bring home dead American soldiers from those wars in caskets; and above all, by directly reiterating President Eisenhower’s dramatic warning about the danger of the “military-industrial complex” that is behind the permanent wars, and that threatens to seize control of national policy for their own agenda; President Donald Trump used his Oct. 9 press conference to kick over the entire chessboard of post-war British geopolitics.

Erdogan Holding 50 US Tactical Nukes ‘Hostage’ As Trump Authorizes Sanctions

from ZeroHedge:

Amid all the media and pundit outrage since Turkey’s President Erdogan launched his so-called ‘Operation Peace Spring’ into northeast Syria last week, vowing to wipe out Syrian Kurdish forces who’ve long held the border areas, what’s been largely missing is acknowledgement of the uncomfortable fact that NATO ally Turkey has long hosted a major portion of America’s nuclear Cold War-era arsenal stored across Europe.
