“There’s A Crisis Coming” US Officials Increasingly Concerned At Venezuelan Meltdown

from ZeroHedge:

As Venezuela gives the world a first hand look at how socialism ends, the U.S. is growing more and more concerned about how everything is going to play out once the meltdown is complete.

The concern of course is valid, as at this point, the immediate future looks quite grim. Looters have taken to the streets, clearing supermarket shelves of all available food as the country begins to starve, and in order to try and preserve the what little time he has left, president Maduro recently declared a 60-day state of emergency.

According to Reuters, senior U.S. officials doubt that President Maduro will be able to complete his term, which ends after elections in late 2018. As the U.S. kicks around possible scenarios for how this will all end, from a referendum vote to military coup, one thing is becoming more and more certain: “You know there’s a crisis coming.”

The United States is increasingly concerned about the potential for an economic and political meltdown in Venezuela, spurred by fears of a debt default, growing street protests and deterioration of its oil sector, U.S. intelligence officials said on Friday.

In a bleak assessment of Venezuela’s worsening crisis, the senior officials expressed doubt that unpopular leftist President Nicolas Maduro would allow a recall referendum this year, despite opposition-led protests demanding a vote to decide whether he stays in office.

But the two officials, briefing a small group of reporters in Washington, predicted that Maduro, who heads Latin America’s most ardently anti-U.S. government and a major U.S. oil supplier, was not likely to be able to complete his term, which is due to end after elections in late 2018.

They said one “plausible” scenario would be that Maduro’s own party or powerful political figures would force him out and would not rule out the possibility of a military coup. Still, they said there was no evidence of any active plotting or that he had lost support from the country’s generals.

The officials appeared to acknowledge that Washington has little leverage in how the situation unfolds in Venezuela, where any U.S. role draws government accusations of U.S.-aided conspiracies. Instead, the administration of President Barack Obama wants “regional” efforts to help keep the country from sliding into chaos.

“You can hear the ice cracking. You know there’s a crisis coming,” one U.S. official said. “Our pressure on this isn’t going to resolve this issue.”

A crisis isn’t “coming”, to be clear it has already arrived. Following the state of emergency, which extended a decree granting Maduro extended powers to act in the face of a deep economic crisis, the president threatened to take over idle factories and jail their owners who are trying to “sabotage the country” by halting production. Of course, “sabotage” may be the wrong word to use. Last month, Empresas Polar, the country’s largest food and beverage distributor, shut down its last beer plant due to its inability to access dollars needed to pay foreign suppliers. Perhaps Maduro forgot that the currency exchange process is controlled by the government.

Further evidence of deterioration comes from the fact that Caracas is filled with both pro-government and anti-government crowds arguing back and forth whether or not the 1.8 million signatures collected in favor of a referendum are valid enough to move forward with.

    “‘There’s A Crisis Coming’ US Officials Increasingly Concerned At Venezuelan Meltdown”

    Just look at Venezuela, to see what is coming to the United States: 1) Hyperinflation, 2) Food shortages, 3) Violence, such as on the streets and in grocery stores, 4) MARTIAL LAW? I SAY YES! WHY? Because it fits with what THE “ELITE” OF ‘THE WEST’ ALWAYS DO! You see, the element of American Society that REALLY controls AMERICA, IS NOT AMERICAN! It’s JEWISH! Look what they did to Russia in 1917, and after! The so-called “Russian” “Revolution” was IMPORTED from the Lower East Side of New York City!

    “In 1917, Paul Warburg, and Jacob Schiff, both JEWISH Rothschild-agents, on Wall St., handed Lev Bronstein (aka Leon Trotsky, JEW) $20 Million (USD) in gold, when Bronstein/Trotsky boarded a ship, in New York Harbor, bound for Russia, and the Rothschild-financed overthrow (really massacre) of the Romanov Family Dynasty. Meanwhile, in Germany, Max Warburg (Paul’s brother) handed Lenin $6 Million (USD), and provided Lenin safe passage, from Germany through Europe, into Russia, aboard a SEALED train. ‘Out of 388 members of the new Russian government, only 16 happened to be Russians. One was an American Black. And all the rest, all the rest, 371, were Jews. Of these 371 Jewish Bolshevik leaders, no less than 265 of them were from the Lower East Side of New York City. So you see, the Russian Revolution wasn’t Russian at all.'”

    Prepare for the attempted TAKE-DOWN OF AMERICA, and watch the JEWS! Why?

    Here’s why: READ THIS!

    Dual Citizenship — Loyal to Whom?, by Dan Eden for View Zone

    And THIS!

    Zionists Are a Fifth Column in America

    Look, it’s STARING US RIGHT IN THE FACE! 2017 is the 100-year Anniversary of the so-called “Bolshevik” “Russian” (JEWISH-CREATED, FINANCED, AND CARRIED OUT) “Revolution”. Watch for either a severe contraction of the money supply, or more likely, HYPERINFLATION, followed by food shortages, and riots. Then, once the violent riots begin (and the government KNOWS HOW TO DEAL WITH VIOLENCE!, by countering with VIOLENCE), the government then has the EXCUSE TO IMPOSE MARTIAL LAW – and this is when governments can be overthrown. So, let me say it again – watch the JEWS!

    Look, I’m DECIDEDLY NOT saying that EVERY “Jew” is bad, or evil. Not at all. It’s only those in the .001% – at the top-level of our current socioeconomic system – and all those “sayanim” (helpers) who support said status quo, that are part of the problem. COMMUNISM IS AN ABJECT FAILED EXPERIMENT. ZIONISM is alive and well particularly in Rothschild-Israel, illegally created in 1948, in PALESTINE!

      Q: WHO, exactly, controls American Foreign Policy in the Middle East?

      A: The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), and AIPAC !!!

      • anon

        The CIA and Pentagram (Pentagon) are the enforcement arm of the CFR and AIPAC in the Middle East!

          Look, Judaism + Freemasonry + Psychotic (Libtard) Left + FAUX “Revolution” = GENOCIDE.

          THAT is the lesson of both the so-called “French” and “Russian” “Revolutions”.

          What do the Western International Central Bankers want, above all else? 1) CONTROL, via SOCIALIST/COMMUNIST/FASCIST (LEGALIZED THEFT) DEBT-ENSLAVEMENT of every country, man, woman and child on the entire planet!, and 2) Global depopulation of the “useless eaters”, “cattle”, goyim!

            Look, WHAT ARE WESTERN “ELITES” going to do, when the rest of the world either turns its back on ‘the West’ economically, or financially – or, simply turns its back on the 99% who live in the West (while the Western “elite” are protected)?


            You see, in their minds, anyone who isn’t JEWISH is “cattle”! According to the Babylonian Talmud.

              The FACTS of History SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES, but, you have to find them, and read them, and digest them! And, you must get rid of your own pet beliefs! FACTS ARE FACTS! Truth doesn’t need anyone to defend it! Truth just needs more Americans to wake up to it, in order to prevent a national catastrophe!

              • glitter 1


                Not one in ten thousand can even comprehend what you know and understand,yet alone act on the facts as you have delineated here.Sad but true.
                Because the messes love not the truth/no longer seek after or demand the truth,they will be sent strong delusion so they will believe the lie(s).

                • anon

                  glitter1 – I am forever optimistic that we can wake up enough Americans to prevent what History tells us (you and me and other SGT Report regulars – Sean, Eric, Gnostic, Rusticus, and more) is coming. Your comments about the masses not aligning themselves with, or loving the truth, and no longer seeking or demanding truth, are right on target! This is EXACTLY what E. Michael Jones (PhD) says in his book _THE JEWISH REVOLUTIONARY SPIRIT AND ITS IMPACT ON WORLD HISTORY_.

                  When you really get into this deeply, it turns out that GOD’S LAW, is really what people in say, 1835 America, were living under. That year, Andrew Jackson PAID OFF the entire National Debt. Americans in 1835 were mostly self-sufficient FARMERS, planting and harvesting and feeding themselves and their families with GOD’S (GOD-GIVEN) BOUNTY, and taking the excess to market. Government was strictly confined to the boundaries of the U.S. Constitution, its BILL OF RIGHTS, and the RULE OF LAW. Everything is upside down now. Everything has become Judaized, socialized, with all profits accruing to those at the very top, and those who serve them!
