The Biden administration is ready to challenge the Trump administration’s political and ideological maneuvering in Venezuela.
Keep in mind that under Trump, the United States was ready to starve the entire Venezuelan population to death in order to put the blame on President Nicholas Maduro and therefore oust him. In fact, we have massive evidence which shows that the US involvement in Venezuela is conclusively diabolical.
In a meticulously detailed plan from “UNITED STATES SOUTHERN COMMAND,” it stated specifically that the United States is involved in overthrowing the Venezuelan government by any means necessary, including starving the population to death in order to create a food crisis. Keep in mind that this leaked document was approved and signed by Admiral Kurt W. Tidd, “who was the Commander (the chief), at SOUTHCOM.” It stated:
“Encouraging popular dissatisfaction by increasing scarcity and rise in price of the foodstuffs, medicines and other essential goods for the inhabitants. Making more harrowing and painful the scarcities of the main basic merchandises…
“intensifying the undercapitalization of the country, the leaking out of foreign currency and the deterioration of its monetary base, bringing about the application of new inflationary measures.…Fully obstruct imports, and at the same time discouraging potential foreign investors in order to make the situation more critical for the population.…compelling him to fall into mistakes that generate greater distrust and rejection domestically.
“To besiege him, to ridicule him and to pose him as symbol of awkwardness and incompetence. To expose him as a puppet of Cuba…
“Appealing to domestic allies as well as other people inserted from abroad in the national scenario in order to generate protests, riots and insecurity, plunders, thefts, assaults and high-jacking of vessels as well as other means of transportation, with the intention of deserting this country in crisis through all borderlands and other possible ways, jeopardizing in such a way the National Security of neighboring frontier nations. Causing victims and holding the Government responsible for them. Magnifying, in front of the world, the humanitarian crisis in which the country has been submitted to.”
“Structuring a plan to get the profuse desertion of the most qualified professionals from the country, in order ‘to leave it with no professionals at all’, which will aggravate even more the internal situation and along these lines putting the blame on of Government…The presence of combat units from the United States of America and the other named countries, under the command of a Joint General Staff led by the USA.”
The entire document can be read online, and it states over and over that the coup is a plan to reinstitute “democracy” in Venezuela:
“Democracy spreads out in America, continent in which radical populism was intended to take over. Argentina, Ecuador and Brazil are examples of it. The rebirth of democracy has the support of the most valuable determinations, and the conditions in the regions run in its favour. It is the time for the United States to prove, with concrete actions, that they are implicated in that process, where overthrowing Venezuelan dictatorship will surely mean a continental turning point. It is the first opportunity of the Trump Administration to bring forward the vision in reference to security and democracy.”
It also states very explicitly that the United States and other covert entities need to “increase the internal instability to a critical level.” In other words, if there is chaos in the streets, then the United States needs to put gas on that fire and make it more intense!
The laughable thing again and again is that US politicians have placed sanctions on the entire country as what two writers have called “collective punishment” and then complained that Maduro is starving virtually the entire population! Obviously these people think that we are all stupid.
Biden, according to Bloomberg, plans to end all this tension. “The Biden administration intends to push for free and fair elections, offering sanctions relief in return… In a departure from the Trump administration, which insisted it would only negotiate the terms of Maduro’s surrender, Biden’s advisers aren’t setting that as a precondition… Maduro’s foreign backers, including Russia, China and Iran, are expected to play a role, as will Cuba, which is keen to improve relations with the U.S.”
Like Iran, “Maduro has signaled an interest in improving relations when Biden takes office, expressing his desire for the new administration to ease sanctions that have crushed the nation’s oil revenue.”
So, the plan to oust Maduro and to ascend Juan Guaidó to the New World Order throne in Venezuela has failed miserably and pathetically. The banksters were also looking forward to get rid of Maduro because to them Guaido would have been their puppet. As the Guardian reported, the bankers were behind the attempted coup in Venezuela: “A UK foreign office minister has suggested that the Bank of England grant access to £1.2bn in Venezuelan gold reserves to the self-proclaimed interim leader Juan Guaidó rather than Nicolás Maduro.”
At the same time, the United States “handed control of Venezuela’s bank accounts in the US to Juan Guaido, the opposition leader whom Washington has recognised as interim president. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo signed off on the order last week for Guaido to control holdings in the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and federally insured banks.”
If Biden again can stop the Trump administration’s diabolical activity in Venezuela, then he sure will get enough cheers from the American people, who have aspired to end perpetual wars in the Middle East and elsewhere. In fact, Maduro has already made it clear that he is hopeful that the Biden administration will reach out to him. He said:
“We will work, hopefully, to resume decent, sincere, direct channels of dialogue between the future government of Joe Biden and the legitimate and constitutional government of Venezuela.Donald Trump left a minefield between the government of the United States and Venezuela … he left a swamp.”

“The Biden administration intends to push for free and fair elections, offering sanctions relief in return”…Hmmm, sounds suspiciously like the ‘good cop’ routine. What Biden is really saying is that we are still going to interfere in your internal politics, but we’ll use different terminology and ploy. Have new ‘approved’ elections and we might publicly get off your back. Behind the scenes however…Want to bet these negotiations will include ditching Cuba, Iran and Russia? More corporate involvement as well. The carrot will be their US oil company we gave to Guano and an open US market…hell, we might even have their assets returned. It might work if Maduro is as much a sellout as they are. But after what they have put up with, I doubt it. Now if Biden says we’ll dump out interference unilaterally, that would be a different story. Anyone want to bet on that?
What are you betting on ? When Hussein went to Cairo to speak, he meant every word he said. He even took down that fat bastard Mubarak to allow Morsi to rule 85 million Muslims. Little he knew that 24 hours before Morsi’s taking office the Likudniks in the Egyptian military would put a decree in place to render him powerless.
Same thing happens every time a democrat walks into the Oval Office. Likud aka republicans put their stooges in place.
Otherwise the democrats intentions are genuine.
You want to bet that Obama’s “good cop” was to save face when in total paralysis ?!
Here lol. Egyptian paralysis courtesy of Likud.
Guano. I like that.
Great article as always, Prof. Alexis. Please keep up the good work. I always look forward to your articles.
I really enjoy reading Jonas’s writeups on Iran, Venezuela, Israel. He constantly debunks the populist argument that is used to paint everybody as corrupt and incompetent, so as to justify Trump’s lies/crimes.
I know that there will be 4 years of hell coming from republicans to stop everything that they Biden administration intends to do to clean Trump’s garbage, just like the eight years of Obama, but Biden’s team is not the lily white Israeli firsters of the 90s Clinton era.
I will be very nervous after Jan 5th if the two Georgia criminals are pushed away by Ossoff and Warnock.
Biden could suspend the illegal sanctions on Venezuela and Iran, but then he’d be in the same place that JFK was in November of 1963.
Israel has been exposed for the fraud that it always was been since that era. Right there that’s the difference. It started to sink in 20 years ago which coincides with how long Likud has been peddling a war with Iran.
Does it take this long to make a war happen?!
