“We have defeated a monetary, political, social, and economic coup, we have contained it,” said President Maduro yesterday.
According to the Agencia Venezolana de Noticias, President Maduro “told that thanks to the government’s actions an imperial plan against the Bolivarian Revolution, with sectors of the national and international right-wing, has been defeated. He also announced that opposition parties Voluntad Popular and Primero Justicia, together with the United States embassy in Caracas, where behind these plans.”
The US Department of the Treasury is also part of the conspiracy, as Maduro says he has evidence (not shown) that the agency plotted to sabotage the timely arrival in the Venezuela of the new higher denomination bills.
Maduro also included US President Obama in the plot of his conspiracy narrative: “This is Obama’s farewell blow (coletazo). He is obsessed with the destruction of Venezuela,” he said.
Fortunately, the monetary coup having been defeated, 2017 will be a year of phenomenal growth for the Venezuelan economy and of complete happiness for the Venezuelan people, according to Maduro.
