Facts

    Venezuela, a socialist disaster. Two Americans have been captured and will face trial after a failed invasion attempt into Venezuela. Luke Denman and Airan Berry, previously in the US Special Forces, were part of a United States government opposition group that attempted a coup to overthrow the nation’s President Nicolas Maduro. Opposition leader Juan Guaido stated in 2019 that his dream is for “a free election now, no dictatorship, for kids in Venezuela not to starve to death.”

    Maduro has directly accused the US, stating “President Donald Trump is the direct leader of the whole incursion.” A former Green Beret, Jordan Goudrea, has claimed responsibility for training the members of the attempted coup. He stated in a phone interview, “By no means am I saying that 60 guys can come in and topple a regime. I’m saying 60 guys can go in and inspire the military and police to flip and join the liberation of their country, which deep down is what they want.”

    Democratic members of Congress called for an investigation into Goudrea’s possible violation of the International Traffic in Arms Regulations, which requires any US company which supplies weapons and military training to foreigners to first receive approval from the Department of State. Captured American Luke Denman said Goudrea’s company SilverCorp supplied the arms and equipment for the mission. 

    The Daily Beast is reporting: “Trump Just Inspired the Dumbest Damned Coup Plot in LatAm History, Complete with a QAnon Crazy.”

    Although the opposition group was said to be led by US-backed Guaido, President Trump has denied any involvement with the invasion. Trump has previously said “all options are on the table” for possibilities in helping Guaido to remove Maduro from office. President Maduro has been accused of terrorism by the Trump Administration. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has guaranteed we will do whatever is necessary to bring the Americans home.
