Two things stand out about the US coup in Venezuela. First, it is unusually open. Typically, the US tries to hide its coups. Second, the coup is built on a series of obvious falsehoods, yet the bi-partisans in Washington, with a few exceptions, keep repeating them. Here are the corrections: (1) Truth: President Nicolás Maduro is the legitimate president. (2) Truth: The economic crisis is caused by outside intervention, internal sabotage and the decline in oil prices. (3) Truth: The opposition is violent, not the Maduro government. (4) Truth: The National Assembly acted in violation of the law and is in contempt of court.
