A week later after young anti-racism activist Heather Heyer was killed at a Virginia white supremacist demonstration, huge crowds of counter protesters have marched peacefully through downtown Boston against a “Free Speech” rally featuring right-wing speakers.
Streets around Boston Common, where the rally took place, were lightly trafficked early on Saturday. Some 500 police officers placed barricades to prevent vehicles from entering the park. They also built a cordon around the site of the rally to keep the two groups separate.
U.S. CIA director Mike Pompeo agreed with president Trump not ruling out “a military option” in Venezuela Sunday saying that the South American country could become a risk to the U.S. because “the Cubans are there, the Russians are there, the Iranians, Hezbollah are there.”
During an interview with “Fox News Sunday” this weekend, Pompeo described Venezuela’s situation as a serious risk to the United States.
“It’s a civil war, I understand it’s a terrible situation,” Fox News journalist Chris Wallace said, ”but ultimately why is it our problem?” he asked.
“Look,” Pompeo said, “Venezuela could very easily become a risk for the United States of America. The Cubans are there, the Russians are there, the Iranians, Hezbollah are there. This is something that has a risk of getting to a very, very bad place. So, America needs to take this very seriously.”
While at his golf course in New Jersey Friday, Trump told reporters that the U.S. has a number of solutions to Venezuela’s situation and military force was still an option being considered.
It seems sanctions and diplomatic and media siege to Venezuela are not enough to try to tear down the Bolivarian Revolution. Today, as an irrefutable proof of the destabilizing and obscene activity, the US and its best conspiracy organization -CIA- are inciting Venezuelan officers to turn against its government to serve other countries interests.
A few days ago, the truth about CIA intervention on Venezuelan conflict was revealed when second secretary of the Venezuelan embassy in Panama, Gabriel Hernán Pérez, declared himself against the National Constituent Assembly (ANC), leaded by “chavistas” deputies.
Five anonymous transgender members serving in the US military are demanding president Donald Trump´s military transgender prohibition for violating constitutional protections of the Fifth Amendment.
Two advocacy groups filed the lawsuit on Wednesday in US District Court in Washington, DC against president Trump, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and other top officials, on behalf of the five, who said the ban violated the rights of service members’ due process and equal protection under the Fifth Amendment, and asks the court to declare Trump’s directive unconstitutional and to issue injunctions to stop its implementation.
After all the rumors around the phone call conversation that had president Trump and the Mexican president Enrique Peña Nieto, the Washington Post obtained the records of U.S president saying to his counterpart: “stop stating that Mexico would not pay for a wall on the border”.
“You cannot say that to the press,” Trump told Nieto, urging him to refrain from the public statements because of the political damage it would impose on Trump.
“If you are going to say that Mexico is not going to pay for the wall, then I do not want to meet with you guys anymore because I cannot live with that,” Trump told Nieto, according to the transcript.
A coalition of the Democratic and Republican parties of the United States launched the Kentucky-Engage State Council of Cuba to promote policies of rapprochement between that US territory and the Caribbean island.
The group is made up of political and business leaders and headed by state agriculture commissioner Ryan Quarles and Blue Equity executive director Jonathan Blue.
According to the members of the Council the economic, commercial and financial siege affects the companies and farmers of the territory, and the Cuban people.
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer has resigned in protest at an organisational shake-up.
Apparently, Mr Spicer disagreed with President Donald Trump’s appointment of a new communications director.
Instead, the Wall Street financier Anthony Scaramucci has been the mediator in this context.
Mr Spicer’s press briefings were very brief and he withdrew from camera in recent weeks. This happens when the White House faces a difficult situation concerning the apparent Russian meddling in last year’s US presidential election and with Mr Trump’s campaign team conspiracy with Moscow.
The Palestinian-owned restaurant Reem’s California Bakery, located in the heart of Oakland, California, has been under fascism and bigotry attacks for having a grand mural of former Palestinian political prisoner and revolutionary Rasmea Odeh.
“Now we’re terrorists ourselves,” Cece Carpio, one of four artists who created the mural in the community-centered-and-funded bakery.
Carpio explained that Reem Assil, the owner of Reem’s, and her colaboration for Palestinian liberation, had been targeted by pro-Israel groups in the bay area.
But it wasn’t until assil opened her eatery a few months ago, with Odeh’s profile on its walls, that the forces opposed to Carpio´s work.
Fernando Cutz, the director for South America of Donald Trump’s National Security Council, promised tough measures against Venezuela but didn´t give details in a White House briefing Tuesday.
Cutz told journalists that no decision has yet been taken on new sanctions against Venezuela, not specific actions nor the names of individuals or entities that might be targeted.
The briefing occurred soon after President Trump threatened to take “strong and swift economic action” if the Venezuelan government “continues with elections for a Constituent Assembly on July 30”.
Isn´t that threat similar to that Trump made to Cuban government when he appeared in Miami to promise same robust measures. And anyone can ask itself why trump administration is taking such hard decisions regarding other countries that is not U.S?
