Hey, Trump, how's that Venezuela revolution going?

Notice that you hear nothing about what's happening in Venezuela. Where's the coverage, where are the 'strong' statements and threatened actions against Maduro?
Nowhere, that's where.

All the bluster and arm waving ceased, the people of Venezuela are worse off than ever, the Russians (and the Chinese and Cubans) are still playing their hand and every single politician and news outlet in the U.S. has fallen dead silent.

And before you say, 'Well, what's your solution?'. My answer is not to let the issue fall into some ravine and get the responsible parties and populations working on it. These are not headlines in Venezuela, these are real people, millions of them, oppressed, displaced and cast into misery by a creepy autocrat and world which no longer cares.

You say you want a revolution
Well, you know
We all want to change the world
You tell me that it's evolution
Well, you know
We all want to change the world

But when you talk about destruction
Don't you know that you can count me out

Don't you know it's gonna be alright
Alright, alright

You say you got a real solution
Well, you know
We'd all love to see the plan
You ask me for a contribution
Well, you know
We're all doing what we can

But if you want money for people with minds that hate
All I can tell you is brother you have to wait

Don't you know it's gonna be alright
Alright, alright, al...

You say you'll change the constitution
Well, you know
We all want to change your head
You tell me it's the institution
Well, you know
You'd better free your mind instead

But if you go carrying pictures of Chairman Mao
You ain't gonna make it with anyone anyhow

Don't you know it's gonna be alright
Alright, alright

Alright, alright
Alright, alright
Alright, alright
Alright, alright

He has a very short attention span except when it comes to undoing whatever the black president accomplished.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

Trump's "foreign policy" is to make enemies with some leaders and make friends with other leaders. That's it. He's got nothing beyond that.

Trump is giving up on regime change in Venezuela because it's complicated and he got bored, report says
According to US officials who spoke with The Post, Trump had viewed the prospect of a US-backed toppling of Maduro as an "easy win" at a time when other foreign-policy initiatives had stalled.
