    Thank you, Sam, for speaking out about this. Only the Venezuelan people should be involved in choosing their leadership, whether they prefer Maduro, or Guaidó, or someone else - Not Donald Trump, and not the President of the National Assembly in an unilateral and arbitrary decision. The public - all of the public, including the poor who want to see their Bolivarian rights preserved, should make such decisions. America has a long history of interfering in Venezuela, much like Russia is suspected of having interfered in the US, but more so - Maduro has played a big part in failing Venezuelan democratic norms, but his party and his voters are terrified of what happens if an American puppet regime takes over, as they did under Elliott Abrams in other countries, where thousands of people were murdered and the rights of workers, women, and indigenous people were abolished. That history is what has led to this extreme crisis. America needs to BACK OFF in order to allow a transition back to the normal democratic processes, and such a transition should be headed, ideally, by someone who can be a temporary consensus leader, not picked by me or the US or anyone outside Venezuela. And for anyone who says that Maduro's party should be excised entirely (as opposed to just Maduro, or anyone in his government that may have committed any crimes), you're talking about denying the votes of the vast majority of poor and indigenous Venezuelans, people who prospered in all the "Pink Tide" governments in South America, and who are only asking not to be returned to grinding poverty. The deserve a government they can trust to care for their interests - and in a democracy, it's up to Maduro's rivals to prove they can be trusted with power, as much as it is Maduro's fault that he isn't doing this very well now.

    Maduro did NOT steal the election. They requested UN observers to monitor the election but the U.S. pressured the U.N. to refuse. Independent observers from other countries confirmed that the election was legit. Corruption is endemic to South American politics unfortunately. Charges against specific politicians are levied for purely political reasons. For example, the charges against Dilma Rousseff and Lula in Brazil. "Anti-corruption" weaponized by the center right (who engaged in far more corruption than the workers party) to depose the left. Venezuela is not that complicated if you actually read the history. The economic strife is manufactured by U.S. backed corporations in Venezuela manipulating the prices of goods as well as U.S. sanctions compounding the misery. It's the well-known playbook the U.S. uses to destabilize any countries in the global South that dare flirt with socialism. "Make the economy scream!" they say. Please, Samantha. Please read the history of the U.S. involvement in South America over the decades.

    Most of what you said is true, but the election of Nicolas Maduro was deemed fair by international observers. In fact the electoral system in Venezuela is amongst the best, if not the best in the World. If large elements of the opposition did not participate it was because they knew they would lose. Opposition that did participate and lost declared the election fair. Where the stuff about Maduro drug dealing etc., came from is bizarre. Yes things are bad there, but the US has worked tirelessly through subversion and attempted previous coups and assassination attempts to seize Venezuela oil and other assets and to place them in the hands of it's own companies, simply because it wants to ensure US hydrocarbon security into the future with the biggest oil reserves in the World which are in Venezuela. Of course putting dollars in the elites pockets is up there with it. Certainly not the interests of the people of Venezuela. The US has placed sanctions on Venezuela for many years, even though Venezuela has only wanted to sell oil to the US and has never threatened to attack the US.

    Comedians doing geopolitical analysis drives me crazy. Rather than put together a fully coherent argument they just throw out bon mots, collect the laughs and applause and move on. Samantha Bee seems to understand just how evil Bolton and Abrams are but she blithely tosses out ridiculous and unsubstantiated charges of Maduro's brutality, money laundering and drug smuggling. These are State Department talking points and have zero proof to back them up. But then, they don't need to, so long as the corporate media has the likes of Ms. Bee. Maduro is no saint but... oil and oil, again.
