DISINFO: Masonic-Jesuit conspiracy is behind the situation in Venezuela


The Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido studied in a Catholic university. Vatican, which oversees all the Catholic universities in the world, is an old partner of Washington in the “color revolutions” (e.g. in Ukraine) and played a big role in organising the coup in Venezuela. Guaido also received a master’s degree in management at the George Washington University, where, for example, Mikheil Saakashvili studied. Apart from studying, Guaido joined the totalitarian sect of Freemasons. Saakashvili also became a Freemason in the US. Vatican is strongly linked to the Freemasonry. Over the past year, it has been actively involved in organising insurrections against legitimate governments in Hong Kong, Nicaragua, Belarus, and Brazil. It is also involved in the organisation of a “colour revolution” in Poland, together with the US. In fact, the Holy Fathers have turned into an ideological tool of the anti-Christian minded globalists.


No evidence given. Pro-Kremlin conspiracy about Venezuela, Western meddling and Vatican. Nicolas Maduro was officially re-elected president of Venezuela on May 20, 2018. Several Venezuelan NGOs, such as Foro Penal Venezolano, Súmate, Voto Joven, the Venezuelan Electoral Observatory and the Citizen Electoral Network, expressed their concern over the irregularities of the electoral process, including the lack of the Constituent Assembly's competencies to summon the elections, impeding participation of opposition political parties, and the lack of time for standard electoral functions. After that the European Union, the Organization of American States, the Lima Group, Australia and the United States expressed concerns on electoral process. In the declaration on behalf of the EU on the situation in Venezuela the High Representative for Foreign and Security Policy/Vice-President of the European Commission, Federica Mogherini reiterated that the presidential elections last May in Venezuela were neither free, fair, nor credible, lacking democratic legitimacy. The EU has called for the urgent holding of free, transparent and credible presidential elections in Venezuela. Food shortages, poverty and hyperinflation (which according to the IMF estimates is about to reach over 10 million % based on the average consumer prices) have generated a wave of 3 millions refugees from Venezuela and the protests in Venezuela itself, when President of the National Assembly of Venezuela Juan Guido stepped in as an interim president on the basis of the Venezuelan Constitution.
