In the midst of all the turmoil going on in Venezuela, the president has the audacity to blame the US for all his country’s woes instead of a failed government system. Forward on to all Bernie lovers.
Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro declared a 60-day state of emergency on Friday due towhat he called plots from within the country and the UnitedStates to topple his leftist government.
Maduro did not provide details of the measure. A previousstate of emergency, implemented in states near the Colombianborder last year, suspended constitutional guarantees in thoseareas, except for guarantees relating to human rights.
Earlier on Friday, U.S. intelligence officials toldreporters they were increasingly worried about the potential foran economic and political meltdown in Venezuela and predictedMaduro was not likely to complete his term.
Venezuela’s opposition is seeking to recall the unpopularleader, 53, amid a worsening crisis that includes food andmedicine shortages, frequent power cuts, sporadic looting andgalloping inflation.
But the former union leader and bus driver has vowed tostick out his term, and accuses the United States of fomentingan undercover coup against him.
‘Washington is activating measures at the request ofVenezuela’s fascist right, who are emboldened by the coup inBrazil,’ Maduro said during a Friday night broadcast on statetelevision.
