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.

Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro Endorses Donald Trump’s Reelection
Ties have grown between America and Brazil in recent years.
Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro announced his endorsement of President Donald Trump in an event signing a new trade agreement between the United States and Brazil on Tuesday in the South American country.
“God willing I will be able to attend Trump’s second inauguration,” said Bolsonaro at a press conference detailing the new agreement with US National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien. Bolsonaro wanted to emphasize that he does not wish to “interfere” with the US election, but that his support for President Trump comes from the heart.
Bolsonaro and Trump have coordinated on policy to contain Venezuelan and Cuban-style Communism within South America. NSA O’Brien stated that relations between the US and Brazil have “never been stronger” at the trade agreement signing. The US designated Brazil a “non-NATO” ally in 2019, and the two countries have worked together on environmental policy to deter wildfires in the Amazon rainforest.
The new “mini-trade deal” signed between the two countries will regulate telecommunications exchanges between the US and Brazil. Brazil, which is the second-most populous nation in the New World with 211 million people, is an increasingly significant country in global business and diplomatic affairs.
Bolsonaro himself is somewhat of a right-wing populist in the veins of global leaders such as Viktor Orban, Andrzej Duda, and President Trump. He won election in 2018 in a landslide, capitalizing on alienation among the Brazilian electorate for the socialist-style governments that had governed the country for over a decade, mass crime, and preferences for gun rights.
Establishment liberals frequently receive endorsement from globalist leaders across the world, and never think twice about not crying “foreign interference” in the event that it benefits them. President Bolsonaro isn’t an American, but it certainly bodes well to see the leader of the Americas’ second largest country develop a strong working relationship with President Trump.
