Bogota, December 13 2017 (venezuelanalysis.com) – A small bureau at the US State Department donated almost $USD1 million dollars to the Atlantic Council think-tank in September to work with the Venezuelan opposition.

The USD$900,000 in taxpayers’ money was donated to the organisation as part of the US State Department’s “Peace Process Support Network” programme in order to “promote non-violent conflict resolution” in the South American country. Venezuela is currently suffering from an acute economic crisis and political impasse between the national leftist government and the opposition, though a third phase of official dialogue between the two began at the beginning of December.

  1. And did you see? Nicholas Maduro attended the Islamic nations summit in Istanbul last week. The rest of the world is finally starting to realise they need to unite against the US Empire.

  2. I know you’re trying to be flippant, Tube, but there’s actually something quite profound in your comment. I learned in a recent documentary that 85% of Americans get all their news from the Internet and 64% from Facebook. Not only Google and Facebook, but even Yahoo News, the Huffington Post, the Washington Post and the New York Times all use personalized algorithms that only show you the information they think you want to see (based on past clicking behavior). Thus people who believe the lie about the Russians stealing the election will only see articles about Russians stealing elections if they enter the search term “Russia.”
