Elliott Abrams, Washington’s top envoy for Venezuela who was involved in the disastrous Iran-Contra war in Central America in the 1980s, indicated that the US could impose secondary sanctions against allies of Venezuela and the Maduro government who oppose the effort by the US to force regime change. Sanctioning governments across the globe for backing Maduro over Guaido violates international law and the sovereignty of the nation of Venezuela. While 54 countries have joined the US in recognizing Guadio as the ruler of Venezuela, three-quarters of the world’s countries, including Russia and China, are siding with Maduro’s elected government.
With the vast majority of the world still seeing Nicolas Maduro
as the legitimate leader of Venezuela, America’s hawkish special envoy
has hinted that Washington might sanction third parties that defy the US
community must choose sides wisely in the Venezuelan conflict, the
curator of US intervention in the Latin American country, special envoy
Elliott Abrams, suggested on Tuesday, noting that Washington would not
limit itself to economic sanctions just against the Maduro government,
but against all who chose to support him.
“Secondary sanctions, it’s clearly a possibility,” Abrams said at a press conference, warning that a decision to sanction third party countries “would depend on the conduct of the [Venezuelan] regime over time.”
So far some 54 countries have bowed to US pressure and recognized the self-proclaimed ‘interim
president’ Juan Guaido, who since January has been rallying support for
regime change. Whilst the US claims the “momentum is good” to get more countries on board, the majority of the world’s countries and population rejected Washington’s “imperialist” ambitions, Colin Cavell, associate professor of political science at Bluefield State College, told RT.
The US administration is “internationalizing
the Venezuelan conflict on a very dangerous basis… threatening other
countries who deal with Venezuela, saying that if you do not support our
sanctions, we are going to impose sanctions on you,” Cavell explained.
Earlier on Tuesday, Washington’s top envoy for Venezuela, Elliott Abrams, said imposing U.S. secondary sanctions against non-U.S. citizens or entities tied to the Maduro government was “clearly a possibility,” although he said a decision had not been made on taking such a step.
The move is an attempt to do away with differences in test scores that theoretically result from disparities in wealth and education and, by so doing, preempt a possible ruling from the Supreme Court on race-based affirmative action.
The bill is intended to challenge the Supreme Court’s decision in Roe v. Wade, in which the high court enshrined the right to abortion as a constitutional right, though such a thing does not exist in the Constitution.
Based on data so far this year, experts predict that there will be 863,000 border apprehensions this Fiscal Year, though this only counts illegal aliens who are caught at the border and does not include those who successfully cross.
More than half of US states have such laws on the books. Federal courts have struck down similar anti-boycott laws in Kansas and Arizona. The ACLU says the three courts protected the right to boycott under the First Amendment.
The original legal complaint against the university claimed that administrators told students that they could not require their group leader to be a Christian who shares their mission, which violated students’ rights to free association.
Last week, John Bolton, warned Iran “that any attack on United States interests or on those of our allies will be met with unrelenting force.” This apparently was the signal for reporting explosion damage to four oil tankers off the coast of Fujairah.

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez flipped her position on the imminent destruction of the world in 12 years unless Americans accept her radical Green New Deal. She now says the timeline was a joke that Republicans took too literally because they are confused by dry humor and sarcasm.
Free healthcare is a welfare magnet that will draw even more people to migrate to the US, which is the globalist plan to overwhelm the US economy and bring Americans to their knees begging to be rescued at any cost, including their freedom.
here is concern that the investigation may extend past the statute of limitations and, thereby, prevent prosecutions, regardless of the findings. Judge Napolitano says the statute for most federal crimes is five years. Much of that has already passed.

Offline is a documentary on the inevitability of the Earth being slammed by a mega solar flare – not the common type that interrupts communications and creates a light show in the Northern skies – but the big brothers thousands of times more powerful. These monsters deliver enough energy to blow apart the master transformers that supply the planet’s energy grids. When that happens, the lights go out for longer than anyone wants to think about. These X-Class solar storms hit the Earth every 150 years, on average. The last one arrived 156 years ago. We are overdue (More)
Ten Days at Jekyll Island, a novel by Patrea Patrick, tells the true story of a secret meeting held in November of 1910 on a privately owned resort island, the outcome of which drastically changed the world.
