And here you have another one of those “because of course” situations we see so often these days.
Washington seems so dead-set on regime change in Venezuela, the State Department has just appointed a former diplomat with a sordid track record in Latin America and Middle East to spearhead “restoring democracy” in Caracas.
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced on Friday the appointment of Elliott Abrams to “help the Venezuelan people fully restore democracy and prosperity to their country.” Abrams is expected to coordinate all diplomatic efforts to replace President Nicolas Maduro with the self-proclaimed president Juan Guaido, recognized by the US, OAS and several EU members.
“I left this building 30 years ago this week – last time I worked here – so it’s very nice to be back,” Abrams told reporters at the State Department on Friday. “This crisis in Venezuela is deep and difficult and dangerous and I can’t wait to get to work on it.”
The appointment is an attempt by the US to introduce a direct control of Venezuela as a “future regional vassal,” Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said.
For those who don’t recall, Abrams was one of the top neocon Jews that planned the invasion of Iraq.
He has not apologized for that.
He also organized the Iran-Contra debacle.
He’s basically the worst Jew and this is nuts. I really never expected to see this guy again. This is the equivalent of William Kristol, Richard Pearle or any other top neocon kike. It’s just bizarre and almost unbelievable.
At least one guy is jerking-off to this announcement though.
The naming of Elliot Abrams as Special Envoy on Venezuela is great news. He is an tough & experienced foreign policy expert with a long history of supporting democracy, liberty & the national interest of the United States.

Many anti-Semites such as MSNBC host Chris Hayes are unhappy with this move.

Ann Coulter said it.
We need to deport Jared Kushner first.
Maybe the solution to the border crisis is not deporting 22 million illegals but one Jared Kushner.
