Venezuela’s Supreme Court has opened a criminal action against seven opposition politicians for alleged treason and rebellion, the court said in a statement.

An investigation into who made up the coup.  Detain/Jail, and prosecute all participants of the illegal coup.  Guido was the ringleader, therefore he should be detain; jailed, and charged with treason.  Carrying out this action would not increase any more hostility towards himself, as the U.S. has maxed out their illegal coup agenda. A show of strength is now needed to maintain Maduro’s majority support  The world is not blind to the U.S. agenda.  They recognize that there is absolutely no threat from Venezuela.  No planned attacks against the U.S. or it’s neighbors.  An invasion by the U.S. right now would completely destroy that “Good Guy” image, and rehash the economic sanctions that were put in place, to bring about hardship on the Venezuelan people .  The U.S. doesn’t care about the Venezuelan people. Hardship sanctions placed on the people, and then giving humanitarian aid,(posing).   A nullifying action.  A Bad. and then a Good equals…. “Zero”.  This regime change is purely economics; resource acquisition, and positioning itself to control the Middle East.  The that it’s all about introducing Democracy.  ????  Democracy by sword.  Forcing Democracy does not work.  Democracy is best spread by example.  How you treat your own people.  The U.S. is  a Constitutional Republic with Democratic principles, of which are being violated/trampled on a daily basis.  Americans have lost much of their freedoms over the past 20 years.  Venezuela is NOT interested in the NEW redefined Democracy, that the American people are living under. Democracy is now just a made up word to make you feel as if you can decide for yourself.  If you decide wrong,(against the government’s desired outcome), then they will be happy to change your vote to meet their agenda.   We are not as free….. as we used to be. There will come a day when we will no longer celebrate July 4th, (Independence Day), because we will have no freedoms left.    -Commentary by Steve Elkins



The Supreme Court said in a statement that the politicians Henry Ramos Allup, Luis Florido, Marianela Magallanes, José Simón Calzadilla, Américo De Grazia, and Richard Blanco, as well as Andrés Velázquez were accused by the attorney general for the alleged crimes of “treason, conspiracy, instigation of insurrection, military rebellion, conspiracy to commit a crime, usurpation of functions, and public incitement to disobedience”.

Some of the accused politicians appeared alongside opposition leader Juan Guaido during the failed military coup on 30 April outside the Generalissimo Francisco de Miranda Air Base.

The Supreme Court approved a similar process last week against the vice president of the National Assembly, Edgar Zambrano.

The decision comes after Guaido tried to convince the Venezuelan people and military to take to the streets to oust Maduro from power on 30 April. However, the attempt to overthrow the president failed.

The situation in the country has worsened since January, when Guaido proclaimed himself the country’s interim president and was recognised by the United States and dozens of other nations.

Maduro, supported by China and Russia, among numerous other countries, has blamed the United States for seeking to overthrow his government and install Guaido in a bid to get hold of Venezuela’s natural resources.
