Venezuelan Socialist Regime in Free-Fall as ‘President’ Juan Guaido Organizes Revolt

Nicolas Maduro, Venezuela’s socialist dictator, is losing his grip on power.

Published

The Venezuelan streets have fallen into total chaos, as the regime of socialist dictator Nicolas Maduro may finally be crumbling.

US-backed Venezuelan ‘President’ Juan Guaido is making his move against the socialist regime today. He claims the military is firmly behind him as he attempts to officially seize control of the crumbling nation from Maduro.

“The armed forces have taken the right decision,” Guaido said. “With the support of the Venezuelan people and the backing of our constitution, they are on the right side of history.”

“The moment is now,” he said.

Leopoldo Lopez, a political prisoner who was recently freed from captivity by Venezuelan military officials, joined Guaido today to lend legitimacy to his actions.

“This is the moment of all Venezuelans, those in uniform and those who aren’t,” he said. “Everyone should come to the streets, in peace.”

But the streets look anything but peaceful as a potential revolution is underway.

Maduro’s forces were believed to spray gunfire at protesters today who began coalescing around soldiers who defected from the regime to get behind Guiado.

Although Maduro’s regime is hanging by a thread, he still has support in the military who believe that Guiado is a puppet for foreign interests.

“We reject this coup movement, which aims to fill the country with violence,” Maduro’s Defense Minister Vladimir Padrino said.

The Trump administration remains firmly behind Guaido’s actions.

Meanwhile, Russian President Vladimir Putin remains steadfastly in support of Maduro and hopes their weapon systems can help him maintain control.

At Least 40 Americans Infected With Coronavirus Aboard Quarantined Cruise Ship

They will be treated in hospitals in Japan.

Published

At least 40 Americans aboard a cruise ship have been infected with the coronavirus, in a development that suggest the dangerous disease may transmit more rapidly than the public in the western world realizes.

Immunologist Anthony Fauci, an official with the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, confirmed that 40 Americans had been diagnosed with the disease in an appearance on 60 Minutes Sunday.

Some reporting indicates that even more people have been infected with the disease, with figures ranging up to 355. These estimates include passengers of all nationalities. Those afflicted with coronavirus are being taken to Japanese hospitals to receive medical treatment.

The Americans were on board the cruise ship Diamond Princess, which is currently quarantined in Yokohama, Japan. The ship is host to the most pervasive outbreak of the coronavirus epidemic outside of China, where it originated. American passengers who tested negative of the disease have been evacuated from the ship and brought back to the United States on charter planes. Those infected with the virus will be treated in Japanese hospitals.

At least one American passenger who was traveling on board the Diamond Princess is refusing to take a U.S government charter plane back to the country, stating his belief to USA Today that the evacuation process the government is using to retrieve its citizens is not safe.

There’s considerable cause to believe the global public is being largely kept in the dark by the authoritarian Chinese government on the dangers posed by the quickly spreading virus. Estimates of the total count of people infected by the disease are largely unclear, with the Chinese government suspected of releasing deflated statistics in an effort to blunt criticism of their response to the epidemic.
