Holy shit, huge news guys:
Wikipedia now lists Guaido as the Venezuelan president, Maduro BTFO.

Could this be what churros the Maduro?
Not really. Under "President" in the Venezuela article, it lists both Maduro and Guaido as "partially recognized", with footnotes listing which institutions recogize which President. In the President of Venezuela article, it lists the position as "disputed".

They must have changed it. I saw it listing Guaido only when I checking for news the other day.

Maduro status: Unchurroed.

The article forgot to mention that the Pajeet only pay when the shipment arrives and they can do jackshit with our oil because is to heavy for them, also 620k of oil is nothing because the delay is to great between payments, it was not like daddy trump that the shipment arrived between the month and Americans paid immediately

Even then, with the situation in the sub-continent, India may stop oil shipments in exchange for some Yankee arms.

Venezuela was hit with rolling blackouts through out most of the country.
People starving (which is probably just as well with the lack of bog roll), dying of lack of medicine, and now the lights don't work. And Maduro still remains unchurroed.

I'm beginning to wonder at this point if Maduro is truly un-churroable.

We're like neocons during the election knowing Trump would get primaried out, but he didn't.

Apparently there's been a constant power blackout for over a day now, and prior to that there were Venezuelans on twitter talking about how the government had enacted a policy where internet would be cut off during AM hours and water would be cut during PM hours. It seems like Maduro is purposefully cutting off basic necessities to the population to weaken them. The power cut off would prevent people from easily organizing over the internet and make news travel much slower so Maduro could easily carry out purges and no one would know until it was too late.

Nothing will ever happen in Venezuela without direct US intervention, even if the opposition was competent (they are not, they're a bunch of progressives socialists faggots exceptional individuals), they're facing the Cuban G2, Russian intelligence, Iranian intelligence, FARC, Hezbollah, etc. so there's no way in hell they can successfully conspire against the government no matter how many in the military are against chavismo, at most they'll leave the military and the country in mass like they've been doing for years and which accomplishes absolutely nothing.

Chazez was schooled in geopolitics by people who were interested in breaking apart Pax America that was formed after World War 2 in the link I posted earlier. All of this is intentional. Which might be worse because then you might have smaller wars breaking out or big wars happening similar to when UK's Pax started falling. And all of this is a big violation of the Monroe Doctrine and in order to maintain it there will be a War.

You're gonna have War...or War. Peace was never an option.

I thought the opposition was fairly centrist/right-leaning?

The situation in Venezuela had also some criminals get hard time to live. https://www.lmtonline.com/news/article/How-bad-is-Venezuela-s-economy-Even-the-13672835.php

CARACAS, Venezuela - How bad is Venezuela's economy? Even the criminals are struggling to get by.

In one of the strangest consequences of this oil-rich country's collapse, cash has virtually disappeared. With soaring hyperinflation, the government can't print money fast enough to keep up, so many Venezuelans have switched to debit cards - not that they have enough money on them.


Suddenly there's a whole class of people whose pockets are no longer worth picking.

"If they steal your wallet, there's nothing in it," says Yordin Ruiz, 58, a shoemaker.

As opposition leader Juan Guaidó struggles to wrench control of this South American country from President Nicolás Maduro, a bigger drama is playing out in the background. The economy is in free fall. Opportunities are disappearing - even for thieves in one of the world's most crime-ridden countries.


Robbers who used to zip around Caracas on motorcycles, shoving pistols into car windows and demanding wallets, are now reduced to walking. There simply aren't spare parts for their bikes. In the past, thieves often snatched cellphones from passengers on the little buses that clogged Caracas highways. But public transportation barely functions anymore.

Many Venezuelans don't report robberies, and there are no reliable government statistics on many types of crime. But the Venezuela Violence Observatory, a respected nonprofit group, estimates that murders dropped from 89 per 100,000 people in 2017 to 81.4 last year. Its 2018 report, based on input from investigators at eight universities around the country, found signs that several other kinds of crime are also declining.


Fewer bank robberies are occurring, because there's not much cash in banks. Who can afford to save?

There are fewer cars on the road to steal. With the price of imported parts soaring, many vehicles just sit in garages.

And even the criminals are migrating, the report said, joining a mass exodus of over 3 million people seeking better opportunities abroad.

"In Venezuela, it's just not profitable to be a thief anymore," said Roberto Briceño-Leon, a sociologist who coordinates the observatory.

The decline in robberies reflects a peculiar phenomenon. A visitor returning to Caracas after years away might expect to find a city falling down. The economy, after all, shrunk by around half in the past five years. But the city is not collapsing. It is disappearing.

The streets are lined with shops, but many have iron grates pulled over them at all hours; they can no longer make a profit. There are few cars on the streets, few people out at night, few items on store shelves.

Felicita Blanco, 70, is a veteran reporter, a short, graying grandma with a half-chewed pen and notebook. She has spent nearly four decades covering crime in Caracas, mostly for the daily El Carabobeño. Covering robberies of armored cars and banks were once a staple of her job.

In slightly related tangent: I've been watching the reaction of the Russian Internet to the Venezuelan shitshow for quite a while:
  1. There's been lots of schadenfreude among Russian liberals (in the European sense of the word - heavily pro-Western and pro-capitalist, very anti-communist). They think VZ's economic collapse is pretty much the same thing as the Soviet economic collapse of late 1980s - early 1990s. Also, plenty of comments like "This is the future of Putin's Russia", as if these two economic systems are actually one and the same (they aren't).
  2. Anti-Western commenters are pretty much as you'd expect. They think that Venezuela before Chavez was a third world shithole fully subservient to American interests, where people were much more poor and miserable than under Chavez (requesting fact check on this from @Cubanodun). Allegedly Chavez broke Venezuela out of that captivity, and now America plans to subjugate Venezuela once again and steal their oil, as if they don't have any other fuel sources. Also, they seem to think that Venezuela's economic woes have begun just recently and are all caused by America. Alternatively, said woes are not as bad as claimed by liberals.
  3. Hardcore Stalinists aren't particularly fond of Maduro's "socialism", as well as all other Latin American left wingers (they think it's all Trotskyism). They think shortages would have stopped if Maduro had stopped flirting with mixed economy forms and just nationalised the whole Venezuelan economy (:story:), because local capitalists are wreckers and deliberately cause shortages to destabilize the country (:story:). Whatever harm is not caused by them is caused by America, of course. American motivation to bring down Maduro is the same as described above.

Maduro is just caught in Chavez mess, he got popular by giving free money away to many inhabitants slowly draining the (by then) prosperous economy of the country and several other aberrations I'm too lazy to point out.

Fat fuck was lucky do die of cancer when things started to fall.

Well, they're not wrong.

They're very leftist, remember that Venezuela have always been very leftist. The party that was Chávez big nemesis Acción Democrática was a former communist party that after they split from castro-comunismo they were still very socialist and always remained friends of Fidel, they are part of the Socialist International just like Voluntad Popular that's Guaido's party. Venezuela's right died in the 60s after Marcos Pérez Jimenez was removed from power by the communists.

Anyways there's a lot of bullshit information about Chávez, for starter you keep seeing everywhere that he nationalized oil and other minerals, bullshit, oil and everything under the ground was always owned by the government since Venezuela existed and even before that, then they may say he nationalized the oil industry, bullshit again, the oil industry was nationalized in 1975 by Carlos Andrés Pérez, Chávez untra-nemesis and the President he did the coup against, yes Chávez was a putschist, which is why it's so laughable that chavista are always calling everything the opposition does a coup.

He also didn't nationalize our universities nor our public schools nor our hospitals and honestly he didn't do anything new that adecos or copeyanos haven't done when it comes to social programs or economic policies other than different names (like CADIVI = RECADI), price controls, import controls, big tariffs, nationalizing shit, reforma agraria (taking land from big owners to give to the little guy), building houses and apartment complex for the poor, trying to diversify our economy (LOL), all that crap was done before Chávez, it just didn't work like it didn't work with Chávez.

Remember I said we nationalized the oil industry in 1975, well we became ultra rich for a few years, one of the richest (top 5) countries per capita in the world, in 1983 we collapsed and this collapse eventually brought Chávez to power in 1999 because people just couldn't understand that we couldn't go back to the golden days when we were super rich and the government gifted you everything.

Well, we successfully accomplished the 50-50 without getting Iraned, we created OPEC, we nationalized our oil industry, we were always super lefty, among other things, so if that counts as being under the US thumb then I guess they're right.

For all practical purposes Venezuela's economy is completely nationalized, all the important parts of the economy, starting with oil which it's most of our economy are completely in hands of the government, then all the others are controlled by the government, like if you produce food you can't decide where or whom to sell it, there is a government office that tells you to whom and by how much money, etc. And then most of these 'private' industries are owned by government officials or their testaferros.
