      “An absurd demonstration of Washington’s gangsterism.”

      by Eoin Higgins, staff writer

      The U.S. Department of Justice on Thursday announced charges of international drug trafficking against Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro, a move that was immediately denounced by progressives as a cynical Washington attempt to overthrow the Latin American leader as the coronavirus outbreak spreads around the world.

      “This is just another attempted coup against Maduro,” tweeted CodePink.

      Attorney General William Barr revealed the charges in a press conference, offering $15 million for information leading to Maduro’s capture.

      “I am old enough to have seen this one before,” said veteran media critic Peter Hart, making a likely reference to former Panamanian ruler and CIA asset Manuel Noriega, the last Latin American leader charged with drug trafficking, who the U.S overthrew in 1989.

      And America is the Fourth Reich.

      All governments lie to their citizen's, but only Americans believe theirs.
