An blackout has covered most of Venezuela over the past several days after the country’s main electricity generator, the Guri Dam, failed. The Maduro administration alleges that the failure was due to cyber attacks and pointed the finger at the US government that has called for Maduro’s ouster. Venezuela’s Communications Minister reported that a cyberattack had taken place against the dam’s computerized system forcing its turbines to stop. Venezuela intends to present evidence of the attack to the United Nations Human Rights Commission and to other international bodies. Meanwhile, US-backed “Interim President” Juan Guaido is using the crisis to call for the armed forces to back his efforts in ousting the Maduro government and tweeted, “electricity will return once the usurpation ends.”

– An electricity blackout has affected most of Venezuela for several
days after an alleged cyber attack crashed the country’s main
electricity generator, the Simon Bolivar Hydroelectric Plant in Bolivar
State, commonly known as the Guri Dam.
Starting around 5 PM on Thursday, the outage affected 70 percent of
the country, with only several eastern states unaffected. By Saturday
morning, power had been restored to most of Caracas and to central
states such as Miranda, Aragua and Carabobo, when a second major outage

On Saturday, President Maduro told crowds at the end of a
pro-government rally that a large scale attack against the country’s
electric infrastructure had taken place on Thursday afternoon. He
pointed the finger at the US, stressing the high level of sophistication
of the alleged aggression and adding that efforts to restore power were
set back by a new cyber attack on Saturday morning.
Maduro announced that he was ordering a massive distribution of food
and drinkable water starting Monday, as well as efforts to secure the
normal functioning of hospitals. Water Minister Evelyn Vazquez announced
on Sunday that water tanks were being deployed while the water pumping
system was getting up to speed.
On Friday, Communications Minister Jorge Rodriguez told press that a
cyberattack had taken place against the “Ardas” computerized system of
the Guri Dam, targeting 3 of the 5 generators and forcing the dam’s
turbines to stop. He added that Venezuela would present evidence of the
attack to the United Nations Human Rights Commission and to other

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.
