Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaidó declared himself the country's interim president amid nationwide protests Wednesday, in a bid to seize power from sitting leader Nicolás Maduro.

The U.S. swiftly proclaimed its support for Guaidó. Maduro responded by announcing a break in diplomatic relations with Washington.

Guaidó, the 35-year-old recently elected head of Venezuela's National Assembly, took the oath of office on an outdoor podium in Caracas, flanked by yellow, blue and red Venezuelan flags. He raised his right hand as a crowd erupted in cheers. He promised to serve as interim leader and call for general elections.

Break in US-Venezuela relations raises fresh concerns for oil market and OPEC

  • The break in U.S.-Venezuela diplomatic relations raises concerns that Washington will expand sanctions to energy trade.
  • Venezuela relies on imports of super light oil from the United States, while U.S. refiners are big purchasers of heavy crude from the Bolivarian Republic.
  • Sanctions on Venezuela's energy minister, who holds OPEC's rotating presidency this year, would also create a headache for the 14-nation producer group.

A sudden escalation in long-burning tensions between the United States and Venezuela could have far-reaching ramifications in the oil market, where the Bolivarian Republic remains a significant player despite its plunging output.

On Wednesday, the Trump administration announced it would back Venezuelan National Assembly leader Juan Guaido, who declared himself the country's interim president earlier in the day. Shortly after President Donald Trump recognized Guaido, Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro severed relations with the United States and gave U.S. diplomatic personnel 72 hours to leave the country.

The latest development raises the prospect that the United States will expand sanctions to U.S.-Venezuelan energy trade, a move that would be potentially devastating to Venezuela. The nation has seen its oil production crater in recent years, depriving the socialist republic of its lifeblood energy revenue and exacerbating a devastating economic crisis.

This shows the hypocrisy of NPR and the US Government in all their talk about supposed Russian interference in our own US elections. You can't interfere more blatantly than to get behind a coup attempt and declare a person President when he has never been involved in a national election before.

Then, a supposedly "Christian" U.S. vice-President named Pence, blatantly lies about the recent re-election of Maduro.

Pence claimed that “Nicolas Maduro is a dictator with no legitimate claim to power,” saying he “has never won the presidency in a free and fair election.”

In fact, according to Venezualanalysis, a left-leaning reporting source:

In accordance with Venezuela’s Constitution, Maduro was

in the country at the time.

One of the big problems with elites in Venezuela is their blatant racism. They have been behind several failed attempts to assassinate Maduro. They promote social media memes showing him as a monkey and many other racist comments. And they use hashtags in Spanish that mean "Assassinate Maduro." He is darker skinned than the white Venezuelans, and he is a socialist. Socialists, because they represent workers, instead of the profiteers, are often persecuted by elites in their own country. The US administration, of course, also hates socialism and has always backed character assassination of socialist leaders, sometimes it goes beyond just "character" assassination.

The US will no doubt look for any opportunities to raise the rhetoric, hoping for any opportunity to justify a crackdown and violence. In fact, when Maduro expelled the US diplomats for supporting the coup attempt, the US said that the president didn't have the authority to expel diplomats and that the they will stay there. Marco Rubio immediately made the threat that if anything happened to them they could expect the US to come down with full force (violence) upon Maduro.

The US has said that Venezuelans should take to the streets and that they would have the full support of the US. Of course, they only mean the support of anti-Maduro crowds in the streets, as their have also been equal numbers of pro-Maduro crowds.

The US hates it when they cannot control the leader of a country that is rich in oil. The direct hypocrisy of the US shows up even more clearly when we look at US recent support for Brazil and Colombia.

Here are some interesting articles. Most of them from venezualanalysis.com

US Administrations Have Been Intervening in Venezuela Since at Least the Early 2000s

FAIR's Janine Jackson interviews Alexander Main about US-backed regime change efforts in Venezuela and the role of the international media.

Janine Jackson: When it comes to Venezuela, elite US media don’t hide their feelings. And their feelings are all the same. Headlines on last year’s reelection of Venezuelan president Nicolás Maduro differed only in tone, including the disdainful: “As Venezuelans Go Hungry, Their Government Holds a Farcical Election,” from the

And do you think that people who are suffering in Venezuela and Nicaragua care if USA or Afrika or whoever support the fall of the regimes?

@JW InsiderGo and live in Nicaragua and Venezuela, try to get a decent job, food, health care  and tell me if you won't continue considering privileged your butt for living in a country where you can express freely your dissapointmente without fearing that police will come and torture you. 

In the past you have defended Daniel Ortega and Maduro, I thought you were neutral or at least kind towards your fellow believers who suffer. 

Have you not read what had happened to the JWS there,? Would you like to be one of those who have been raped, assaulted, or having to leave the country? Ask JW.ORG they posted a video about the crisis in Venezuela. 

As for politics, which I don't care but it is good to know. The process in Venezuela with Juan Guaido or whoever  is the most closest to what the law states about a president elected by the congress, a congress elected by people, not a parallel congress created by Maduro to ussurp the power, that is what is has been happening for the past 3 years.

Go and read and get informed, because is is hyprocrisy from you siting your butt in the USA, having food everyday and pretending to be a normal JW when you are supporting dictators in the region without having information and worst of all not wearing the shoes of the victims. 

Don't come to tell us fairy tales to who know and live the story every day...

Just pointing out the hypocrisy of the statements made, and a pattern that often precedes regime change just before things get much worse for everyone except elites and typically lighter-skinned populations. When the US interfered in Libya, actual slave trading, human trafficking, became a common occurrence.

Sometimes even the elites, and those who support the elites for the sake of "stability" with the rest of the world, do not know what is behind the LIMA Group for example. They also don't realize, even while living in a country, that the chaos and violence is stoked through sanctions and support for fascist elements within a country. Just yesterday, a PR head of the a US company known for promoted political divisiveness in the past, posted a video of a huge crowd from 2016 as if it were the current anti-Maduro. When he was caught, he merely erased all the comments and left it up with the same lie.

Regime change is a dirty business. There is corruption in government everywhere. But where there is a much higher level of corruption, you will see full support by the US. You will see selective use of statistics. You will see the promotion of ignorance about supported corruption, but hypocritical magnification of corruption on the part of leaders the US cannot control.

      CARACAS — The United States banned all air transport with Venezuela on Wednesday over security concerns, further isolating the troubled South American nation by severing one of its last links to the world’s largest economy.
      The Department of Homeland Security said it decided to immediately suspend all commercial and cargo flights between the United States and Venezuela because the country’s political crisis threatened the safety of passengers, aircraft and crew.

      La mayor parte de Venezuela se quedó sin energía desde el jueves por un masivo apagón que continúa este viernes.
      Medios locales reportaron que la pérdida de energía afectó a más de la mitad del país, mientras usuarios de redes denunciaron la falla en al menos 21 de los 23 estados de Venezuela.
      Corpoelec, la compañía eléctrica estatal, habló en su cuenta de Twitter de un "sabotaje"en central hidroeléctrica del embalse de Guri, en el este del país.
      "Hemos sido objeto nuevamente de la guerra eléctrica", aseguró el ministro de Energía Eléctrica, Luis Motta Domínguez.

      Trump aseguró además que “los días del socialismo están contados no solamente en Venezuela, pero en Nicaragua y en Cuba también”.

      Desde que está al aire hace dos años JW Broadcasting, es visitada mensualmente por 10 millones de personas.
       
      Los testigos de Jehová tienen dos récords mundiales: La página web más traducida del mundo, Jw.org en 750 idiomas, y La Atalaya, la revista de mayor tiraje mundial (42 millones de ejemplares mensuales), seguida de la Despertad (41 millones/mes).
      Desde aquel lejano 1879 cuando nació revista La Torre del Vigía, conocida después como La Atalaya, hasta la sorprendente Broadcasting o la página web en 750 idiomas, los testigos de Jehová obedeciendo el mandato bíblico de “predicar las buenas nuevas del Reino…”, han utilizado todos los medios tecnológicos disponibles.
      En esta nota no nos ocuparemos de temas doctrinales. Simplemente relataremos cómo esta organización ha adaptado la tecnología del siglo XXI a su propósito.
      Su interés se centra en quienes asistentes a las reuniones de congregación, asambleas regionales o internacionales o participan de la “Noche de adoración en familia”, pero principalmente a la predicación de casa en casa o en corredores comerciales, como agentes de publicidad del Reino, columna vertebral de su mensaje.
      El 24 de febrero de 1924, cuando empezaban las primeras transmisiones radiales, la sociedad Watch Tower inauguró su propia emisora.
      A principios de los 80, testigos ingenieros electrónicos japoneses, crearon en Brooklin el Sistema Electrónico de Edición Plurilingue, (MEPS), por sus siglas en ingles, para traducir las publicaciones simultáneamente en 186 idiomas.
      Fue de gran ayuda al recomponerse el mapa geopolítico europeo con la caída del Muro de Berlín, seguida de “la cortina de hierro” con sus países asociados y abrirse una puerta inmensa de predicación donde su obra estaba proscrita.
      Con el avance de la ciencia y la tecnología del siglo XXI, se hizo una reingeniería a la forma de llegar a una creciente población mundial, de 8.000 millones de personas, cada vez más ávidas y sedientas de explicaciones, y perpleja por los acontecimientos mundiales que enmudecen al planeta diariamente.
      En 2014 los testigos presentaron JW Language, una aplicación gratuita que ayuda a explicar en diversos idiomas lo que enseña la Biblia.
      El 6 de octubre de 2014 se lanzó experimentalmente el canal de televisión por internet JW Broadcastin, inicialmente en ingles. Desde agosto de 2015 está disponible en 70 idiomas.
      En condiciones normales, montar un estudio de televisión climatizado, con equipos de audio y video, estudios, sets, producción, grabación, redactar guiones, escenificaciones, producir videos y aprender manejo de cámaras, tarda dos años. Los testigos lo lograron en dos meses.
      Los TJ son un ejercito de más de 8 millones de personas reconocidas mundialmente por predicar en más de 230 países. Con ese contingente cubren palmo a palmo todos los rincones de la tierra.
      Ahora, además de hacer visitas en las casas, desde hace más de un año emplean exhibidores portátiles, mesas y kioskos.
      Solo se entra en contacto con los transeúntes si estos plantean una pregunta o inquietud.
      También, parte de lo publicado en 137 años esta sistematizado, comprimido y disponible en el sitio web JW Library y JW Biblioteca Virtual.
      En las reuniones de congregación y en la predicación se agiliza la búsqueda de textos bíblicos o videos, en tablets y equipos móviles.
      Las Asambleas son amenas reuniones instructivas donde se enseña con representaciones video grabadas, proyectadas en gigantescos video Beams, como en los dos auditorios del Salón de Asambleas de Galapa donde pueden acomodarse 4.000 personas.
      La Atalaya redujo su paginaje y tiene dos ediciones mensuales, una que se coloca públicamente y otra exclusivamente de estudio semanal en las congregaciones.
      Despertad ahora se edita mensualmente y se distribuyen 12 revistas anuales.
      Con 137 años de circulacion global, la Atalaya ha tenido tal acogida que hace algunos años una multinacional de refrescos, sodas o gaseosas como decimos en Colombia, propuso financiar un aviso que copara la contraportada.
      Por supuesto, la oferta fue desestimada.
