WASHINGTON - The sun had just dipped below the horizon Wednesday evening when the lights flicked off inside the Venezuelan embassy in Washington.

Waves of cheers rolled up and down the ordinarily quiet street in the elite Georgetown neighborhood at the center of an intensifying standoff between backers of Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaidó and left-wing activists who oppose U.S. intervention and support President Nicolás Maduro.

About two weeks into Code Pink's residency, Venezuelan and Venezuelan-American protesters began to gather outside. They have not left since

Odd that this hasn't been reported in the so-called 'news media'.

They probably didn’t pay their utility bills.

"Send in The Marines...."

That would let them off easy and in fact save them. The code pinko Maduro supporters are surrounded by the opposition to Maduro - many of who have relatives and/or friend in Maduro;s Venezuela...

...They should turn it into a siege/blockade and force those Commie supporters to live as Maduro and Communism is forcing Venezuelans to live: starving without food, denied the most basic medical care and even deprived of clean water.

“”Odd that this hasn’t been reported in the so-called ‘news media’.””

I know you meant to be sarcastic but I’m surprised that this hasn’t been covered here if it’s been going on for a month. I commented last week on a thread and was jumped on because I thought people were talking about protests IN VENEZUELA...but I was put straight immediately that “this is at the embassy in DC which is Venezuela’s territory.” I know I’m trying to avoid the TV news - network or cable - but to have it going on for this long and not commented on before is weird.

I could never decide who was a more nauseating smug pansy - Lehrer or Dick Cavett.

Code Pink sh*ts love being human shields. They were completely silent for eight years of the Kenyan Administration years.

*** They probably didn’t pay their utility bills. ***

Photos of the Embassy’s “paid in full” w/ 0 balance are posted on line.

Also not shown widely, a 70 year old vet bleeding from head wounds after Secret Service beat him up, then refused to call an ambulance.

If the US is going to start using the Macron Model of brutality and violence against peaceful protestors, I have great concern.

BTW, the People in the Embassy are there with Maduro’s blessing. Guaido, who neither ran for President, nor was elected, is not the legitimate President under the Venezuelan Constitution.

I think Lehrer had “Modern Math” pegged [And I liked modern math but could easily see that it was not a good math curriculum for those were were not destined to be Math Majors - it was, however, WAY better than the more recent Common Core Math...]:

Most “News” is FAKE News, in the various categories of same.

FAKE News drives out most real reporting on real events of the day.
