Former Brazilian President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, imprisoned for more than a year for alleged acts of corruption, is today the most important political prisoner in the world.

March 30, 2019 “Information Clearing House“ –  Venezuela is America’s current target for mass destabilization in the hope of installing a puppet government.

America has for years been waging an economic war against Venezuela, including debilitating sanctions which have dramatically affected the state’s ability to purchase medicines, and even mundane replacement parts needed in buses, ambulances, etc. Alongside the economic war there has been a steady propaganda war, but in recent months, the propaganda has escalated dramatically, from corporate media to US political figures.
