The Failed US backed coup in Venezuela. What's next? Erik Prince?
The US backed coup in Venezuela has failed. The US empire will not give up until they have crushed the Bolivarian revolution, and have gotten access to the oil which they have publicly spoken about.

Macro n Cheese Podcast Ep. 54 - Empire with Ajamu Baraka
To understand the situation in Venezuela, one must consider the history of colonialism in Latin America and the liberation struggles that emerged in the post-World War II era.

Promoting Public Safety, Privacy, and the Rule of Law Around the World: The Purpose and Impact of the CLOUD Act
The United States enacted the CLOUD Act to speed access to electronic information held by U.S.- based global providers that is critical to our foreign partners’ investigations of serious crime, ranging from terrorism and violent crime to sexual exploitation of children and cybercrime.
This bill would bring to a long-overdue end the 2001 Authorization for the Use of Military Force. America’s endless wars have dragged on for nearly two decades. We claim the need to spread our divine democracy, while at the same time giving direct financial and military support to those three out of every four dictatorships that tolerate our exploitation.
This act seeks to restore to Congress their constitutionally granted power “to regulate Commerce with foreign Nations,” and cease an escalating practice that began in 1977 whereby presidents use the International Emergency Economic Powers Act to establish sanctions by executive order. The question remains, however, whether any meaningful number of legislators would have objected to the Iraq sanctions that starved hundreds of thousands of children to death. Or whether there would be enough, if any, opposition to the needless suffering we’re currently inflicting on more than a dozen nations with these murderous tools of modern imperialism.
