Agents of the criminal organization calling itself the US Government have cut off the flow of electricity to Venezuela's embassy in Washington DC (archived). This is the first overt attack on Venezuelan soil during this US "regime change" campaign despite apparent USG sabotage of the Gurí dam in Venezuela and an absolute embarrassment of a coup attempt carried out through CIA stooge Juan Guaidó. A number of US citizen protestors have taken to assisting the democratically elected government of Venezuela in defense of their embassy since last month. The USG sure likes turning off other people's electricity.
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).

The local press in Uruguay is telling the story of Pantsuitist Luis Pedernera's successfully executed and very typically Pantsuitist career advancement scheme (archived). Pedernera started with a job as a lawyer for the local "Instituto de Estudios Legales del Uruguay" where burned his employer's funds lobbying for to secure a job on the UN's "Comité de los Derechos del Niño" and catching notice through his advancement of very weird ideas on childhood.
Pedernera's former employer is now broke and selling the apartment dressed as an office where they tried to maintain headquarters in Montevideo's Old City.
Three months after the US Color revolution in Venezuela began and faltered, protesters are marching in DC to prevent allies of US stooge and Macron look-a-like Guaidó's chosen diplomats from taking possession of the embassy (archived). Or as the protestors describe themselves:
A group of U.S. citizens, angered by the U.S.-orchestrated attempt to topple the Venezuelan government, has established an Embassy Protection Collective (Collectives for Peace) to keep the embassy from falling into the hands of the unelected opposition
The elected government of President Nicolas Maduro remains in control of the Venezuelan embassy to the US though the US Secret Service seized the military attache’s office March 18th. The Venezuelan Consulate in New York has also been captured by US backed forces.
Swedish pro-Wikileaks activist Ola Bini was arrested in Quito, Ecuador for allegedly engaging in hacking (archived). Bini was arrested at the airport where he intended to catch a flight to Japan. Instead Ecuador is keeping Bini in preventative detention for 90 days to give local prosecutors time to try selling a story with a plot involving Bini and unidentified Russians planning to steal embarrassing documents from Ecuador's current President Lenin Moreno for public release.
It remains to be seen how many other heads the criminal USG will try to collect from Ecuador after paying a 4.2 Billion dollar bounty for Assange.
Ecuador has ended their asylum for Anglophone dissident Julian Assange after nearly seven years of providing the rebel sanctuary in their London Embassy (archived). In what is surely completely
unrelated development the US directed International Monetary Foundation has approved a 4.2 billion USD "Extended Fund Facility" to provide (archived):
support for the Ecuadorean government’s economic policies over the next three years.
The deal allowed the immediate disbursment of 652 million USD to the government of Ecuador when it was announced in March. Following Assange's arrest inside the Embassy on a five year old British process warrant the US published an indictment of Assange. This was quite the bounty to be paid for a single head by an increasingly poor US.
Shots were fired at a convoy carrying Uranium fuel to the Angra Dos Reis nuclear power plant (archived). Local authorities assert the convoy came into an area where a firefight between competing governments claiming the territory was already underway, and the convoy was apparently not targeted for its precious cargo. Representatives of Brazil's socialized nuclear industry assured:
combustível nuclear é acondicionado dentro de contêineres metálicos especialmente fabricados para essa tarefa. Esses invólucros passam por testes de resistência contra quedas e incêndios
Se um tiro de arma de fogo conseguisse atravessar a proteção do contêiner, poderia danificar o combustível nuclear. No entanto, isso não colocaria em risco a população nem o meio ambiente. O urânio contido em um elemento combustível está em estado natural, tendo o mesmo nível de radioatividade encontrado na natureza.
China is offering to aid to Venezuela as Maduro struggles to restore electricity following apparent sabotage at the Guri dam's hydroelectric plant (archived). With Russia already showing strong continuing support for Maduro's regime and China making this move, it is going to be very hard for the US to contine painting action against Maduro as backed by the "International Community" while two UN Security Council veto powers are not merely voting, but acting against US efforts.
In related news, the RAND Corporation has loudly published reports showing the US losing to China and Russia in most WWIII scenarios they managed to imagine (archived).
