In May 2017, as the number killed during protests against the regime of Nicolás Maduro in Venezuela climbed toward 40, and with more than 130 injured and over 1,300 arrests, many in the United States and the region asked, “How much longer could it go on?”

Although it is still not sure if Donald Trump will go down in history as champion of bombastic, but empty threats, or as somebody who did what he threatened with, thus starting a dangerous local war with potentially global consequences, one thing is absolutely sure: Donald Trump, the eccentric billionaire with a turbulent business career, a showman, proved with his entry into the White House, but as well as with the campaign waged by the so called liberals (in the best way of almost forgotten McChartism) to evict him from there, that the model of western democracy, especially its American version, is irreparable corrupted. If we look at the facts as they are, there can be no doubt about this.

It has been a week of barking out military options, a week of 'everything is on the table',  a week of threats no longer veiled.  Not an example of 'cool as a cucumber', rather a red-face turning to purple with the intensity of the phrasing.

Pulling out of the Paris Climate Agreement or the Trans-Pacific Partnership international treaties by President Donald Trump was no big deal, relatively, because no one was in any real or immediate danger of dying because of it, regardless of what the alarmist climate progressives or international globalist corporations may have screamed about.

Over the historical course, the relations between Latin America and the United States has undergone different perplexing situations and still constantly evolving in some way. In order to deeply comprehend their relations, first and foremost, historical background and perspectives of their relations have to be taken into account. Amid the 1960s, due to some politically arduous situations, social movements, the U.S has opted for the way of militaristic intervention on behalf of its national or homeland security in the backyards.

Democracy and human rights are the two issues on which USA claims advantages and therefore criticizes the weak or anti-capitalist –imperialist nations and, whenever possible, it attacks to further weaken and destabilize them.

Like Nero during the fall of the Roman Empire, NYC's political Deep State plays the proverbial fiddle, bickering and infighting, while the People dependent on the subway system, burn in squalor.

The high level individuals leaving the Trump administration must be a record.  Eleven since the end of January averaging out to almost two per month.  The latest Mr. Anthony Scaramucci now holds a record of sorts as the shortest serving White House communications director in history.  He was in office exactly ten days when the White House Chief of Staff, General John Kelly --  himself a new hire -- fired him on Monday.

As long as the Deep State Oligarchs can continue to use the Citizens United supreme court case to bribe the entire U.S. Congress and Senate 100% and shut out completely the American citizen voter with hundreds of billions of dollars to one, President Donald Trump will never be able to accomplish anything for the American People.

The Venezuelans go to the polls on Sunday (July 30) to elect delegates who will rewrite Venezuela's constitution. In Latin America generally, society is broadly divided into three groups:  whites, mixed race mestizos and the original native peoples.
