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.

Poland’s Nationalist President Declares Election Victory Over Soros-Linked Liberal Challenger
A victory for European conservatives and nationalists.
Polish President Andrzej Duda declared victory at a campaign rally following the initial exit polls in the nation’s presidential election on Sunday, as exit poll results showed him narrowly leading against Warsaw Mayor Rafal Trzaskowski.
Initial exit polls showed Duda, of the national conservative Law and Justice Party, leading by a slim margin of 50.4% to Trzaskowski’s 49.6%. Final results are expected Monday, but Duda’s campaign is apparently confident enough in their victory to declare triumph in the election.
The Polish election had included a national debate on cultural issues, with Duda accusing Trzaskowski of supporting the introduction of western-style homosexual political movements into Poland. Duda, a continental skeptic of the European Union broadly comparable to Hungary’s Viktor Orban, had described LGBTIA+ ideology as “more destructive” than the Soviet-style Communism many Poles had experienced in the 20th century.
Trzaskowski was also scrutinized for his extensive links to western political elites, having received a scholarship from globalist oligarch George Soros and attending the California Bilderberg Conference.
If Duda’s claim of election night victory holds, his reelection as Polish president will serve as an embarrassment to the bureaucrats of the European Union, potentially forcing them to come to the table and negotiate concessions with Central European leaders such as Duda and Orban who insist upon their national sovereignty.
Duda is thought of as a European ally of President Donald Trump, having been the first global leaders to visit the White House after the coronavirus pandemic. Poland is also one of the few NATO countries to meet their treaty spending commitment, spending more than 2% of its GDP on its armed forces.
“Thank you to all my fellow Poles who voted for me and cast their votes. I want to thank you with all my heart because this turnout shows how much you care about our country,” said Duda at the election rally.
