Will The Deep State Invade Venezuela?

Sep 15, 2017

Venezuela stopped accepting the U.S. dollar as payment for oil. “Oil traders who export Venezuelan crude or import oil products into the country have begun converting their invoices to euros,” reports the Wall Street Journal. Last week, President Maduro warned of this course of action. “Venezuela is going to implement a new system of international payments and will create a basket of currencies to free us from the dollar.” This comes after the Trump administration placed sanctions on Venezuela. Other countries have been trying to find a way to stop using the U.S. dollar in international trade. China is buying oil from Russia and Iran and paying in yuan and making the yuan convertible to “gold on a spot basis on the Shanghai Gold Exchange.” The United States has been able to spend itself into a $20 trillion hole because of the agreement that “Henry Kissinger worked out with Saudi Arabia in 1974, after Nixon abandoned gold.”
