Michelle Suárez, Uruguay's first trans-Senator has plead guilty to a variety of crimes relating to her legal practice including fraud and falsifying signatures of zher clients (archived). The communist former Frente Amplio Senator born in 1983 claims the titles of first trans-University graduate, first trans-lawyer, and first trans-holder of elected office in Uruguay. Zhe has been under house arrest since April 18, 2018 due to zher morbid obesity and diabetes making prison incarceration prohibitively expensive. Suárez's legal problems began shortly after zher October 2017 arrival in the Senate, a mere three months later Suárez resigned zher seat when the first forgery charges against her emerged. In the initial case zhe trans-signed a document reliquishing a father's parental and visitation rights forever. The objections of the father and the father's actual attorney lead to this ham's fall from the trough and the investigation of a number of Suárez's other frauds.
Per the plea agreement, Suárez faces another year of home detention followed by two years of probation during which zhe will be barred from public office and pursuing reinstatement of zher license to practice law.
Argentina's EDESA fucked up their transmission interlink bringing power from Paraguay's Yacyretá dam leading to a casacade of failures that caused nationwide outages in Argentina and Uruguay with partial outages in most neighboring countries (archived, archived). The outage began 7:02 local time (UTC -3) and Uruguay's national electric utility UTE had restored power to most of the country within a few hours. Service restoration in Argentina has been slower, except in Tierra del Fuego which avoided the outage with its own generation facilities and separation from the rest of Argentina's electric grid.
Paraguay, where the Yacyretá dam is located, is a massive exporter of hydroelectric generated power to the region with most of its output being bought by Brazil. Uruguay exports electricity to Argentina. Argentina is a major net importer of electricity, buying substantial amounts of power from its neighbors.
Thusly with a grave lack of political and cultural competence in the Americas, the USG regime change team and Madame Secretary Pompeo found themselves in a hard place. Instead of uniting, "the opposition" in Venezuela came to offer more than 40 parties with "leaders" claiming to be the right and legitimate president of Venezuela, if only the USG could do all of the work for them.
For the 27th consecutive week Yellow Jacket protestors in France are calling for an end to the Macron regime.
Jakarta and Indonesia at large are under a "terror alert" ahead of elections next week (archived). The published fear is that local militant groups will bomb protests after the results are announced.
The criminal organization calling itself the "United States Government" has brought violence down upon South Carolina man Amir Golestan for market making North American IPv4 blocks when ARIN, the American Registry for Internet Numbers refused to do so (archived). Unlike the numerous other brokers for IPv4 addresses in the ARIN region Golestan is facing charges because he allegedly made a paperwork mistake leading the USG to issue 20 charges of felony wire fraud, each carrying a potential 20 year prison sentence.
Sweden has opened their investigation into Julian Assange again and appear to be preparing a competing extradition claim to the US one as Britain continues keeping Assange in captivity. At the same time Ecuador has turned over Assange's property left in their embassy to the USG (archived).
The Venezuelan Navy intercepted the US Coast Guard Cutter James as it was approaching Venezuelan territorial waters and made the US vessel change course before it could successfully breach Venezuelan waters (archived). Last May the USCGC James delivered six tons of cocaine captured through USG piracy operation to Port Everglades in the USG occupied territory of Florida, presumably for marketing and consumption in the domestic market (archived). In addition to engaging in piracy against pharmaceutical businesses, this US warship is equipped to serve as a floating command and control platform with a dock for launching and landing rigid-hulled inflatable boats out of zher stern (archived).
Engaged in an embarrassing quagimire in Venezuela following a spectacularly inept coup attempt, the criminal organization calling itself the United States Government has impotently gone on tilt by escalating zher ongoing aggression against zher rivals. A carrier group and bomber task force have been sent flex near Iran following an imagined provacation the US is hyping up despite an absence of any acute aggression or other notable movement on Iran's part (archived).
At the same time the US is sailing two small warships through the South China Sea near islands claimed by China (archived). Most Pantsuitist Anglophone media is hyping small trade related disputes while China is engaged in diplomacy abroad by committing to develop much of the world as part of its belt and road initiative though this movement is ignored in USG lands (archived).
Finally Russia's Khmeimim airbase was shelled, allegedly by members of the group formerly known as "Al-Nusra Front" today. Al-Nusra Front is one of many group in Syria who availed themselves of US weapons during the Hussein Bahamas and Hillary Clinton era of USG thuggery.
After the CIA's failed coup attempt in Venezuela, Maduro has placed the Venezuelan military on alert to repel a possible US invasion (archived). In the aftermath of the coup's failure various criminals calling themselves US government officials communicated their displeasure that many named Venezuelan officials they allegedly counted on to defect to the CIA backed "interim regime" did not defect (archived). The US based criminals also advanced a conspiracy theory that Democratically elected Venezuelan President Maduro was going to board a plane during the insurrection and exile himself in Cuba but didn't due to mysterious Russian shennanigans.
Besides ample unintentional comedy, the childish lack of self awareness from which these USG tantrums stem renders impossible any sort of deniability of USG's "leadership" (or more properly, dreamership) of the remarkably braindamaged plot. Most egregiously there is no acknowledgement from any of the USG conspirators that they were ineptly passing around a treasonous 15 point plan among officials of the democratically elected government of Venezuela without considering the possibility that the fellows could choose to mislead USG criminals out of a loyalty to their country.
In exchange for the massive embarrassment of an operation the USG failed to capture La Carlota Airbase or a defection of the Venezuelan Military while acquiring the release of opposition figure Leopoldo López from the safety of house arrest. The release of López was the USG's designated signal for triggering the rest of the debacle. At the same time Maduro has gained substantial material to advance shared meaning among his supporters against an external enemy.
CIA stooge Juan Guiadó claims to have begun the "final phase" of his sponsors plan to oust democratically elected Venezuelan President Maduro as violence breaks out in the country. Guiadó's forces appear to be focusing their efforts on seizing La Carlota AIrbase1 near Caracas. At the same time Guiadó is summoning his followers into the streets to serve as human sheilds while his forces attack Venezuelan targets. There are reports a number of Venezuelan military personnel were unaware they were acting with pro-Guiadó forces in the early going due to the general confusion and active deception, but the Venezuelan military reports 80% of the confused have returned to support the democratically elected government of Venezuela (archived).
