article imageOp-Ed: U.S. citizens rally for Maduro, tell Obama, 'Hands off Venezuela' Special

By Ruth Hull     Feb 25, 2014 in Politics
Los Angeles - As Obama tries to undermine the democratically-elected Government of Venezuela, U.S. citizens rush to emergency rallies in support of Nicolas Maduro. Have Americans wised up to oil wars? Is Obama prepared to make war on American people to unseat Maduro?
Barack Obama's war strategy in recent years has been to fake social unrest in foreign countries and then send in American or U.N. troops to confiscate the oil and riches of the countries savaged by unnecessary wars. The mainstream press has stood down in recent years, printing whatever stories the U.S. Government has fabricated. Gone are the days when the mainstream press cares to do actual research on the ground. With Libya, it took former six-term U.S. Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney's town hall events to spread the word that the social unrest was faked and that the insurgents were foreign terrorists. However, with the press standing down, the word did not spread fast enough to stop the war. The result of Obama's strategy in Libya was the loss of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and others in Benghazi.
Unfortunately for Obama, Venezuela is too close to home and Americans are no longer buying the lies. Though Nicolas Maduro is especially loved by the masses in Venezuela, he is also loved by people across the United States of America. When word got out that the United States was sending in agitators to create unrest in Venezuela — even to the point of shooting people in the streets of Caracas — a great many educated Americans said, "enough." America's lead agitator in Caracas is Leopoldo Lopez, educated in the United States. Lopez was involved in the 2002 terrorist coup where the President of Venezuela was kidnapped.

Hugo Chavez and his successor Nicolas Maduro have a history of coming to the aid of the American people when their own government lets them down. Of all nations, including the United States, Venezuela was the first to offer aid to the people of New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina devastated them. When Obama has failed to provide heating oil to the freezing poor in the northern states, the Venezuelan Government has stepped in to help American citizens survive the winter. When Hugo Chavez spoke at the United Nations of the mistreatment of his people by the U.S. Government, he received a five-minute standing ovation from nations around the world. Hearing that Chavez had spoken at the U.N., people across the country sent messages asking Chavez to come to their communities to help them find a solution to our nation's problems.
So it is no surprise that, on a couple of hours notice, thousands of Americans rushed to events in support of Nicolas Maduro where they sent a clear message to Obama: "Hands off Venezuela." In MacAurthur Park alone, on a couple hours notice, hundreds of Angelinos flocked to a rally to show their support for Maduro. The Los Angeles crowd included people from all walks of life and all backgrounds. Even children rushed to the event. These kids were well informed and eager to make sure the government knew that Maduro was also a hero to them.
Jimmy Carter, who went down to Venezuela to observe the elections, stated that Venezuela had the best election system in the world. Venezuela has put voting safeguards into place that many are trying to get the United States to adopt in order to ensure proper counting of votes in this country.
Speaking to Americans who are standing firm on this issue, one thing is clear. A war with Venezuela is a war that Obama cannot win — unless he wants to make war on his own country.
