 Takes on the World 
 Prof. Pedro Lange-Churion
 Jeff Blankfort  
Lange-Churion begins with comments on news about Venezuelan government panel allowing process that would allow for ouster of Pres. Maduro which leads into critique of Western Left as well as mainstream media in failing to understand events in the country; that the opposition to the Maduro government is a coalition, not a monolith or US invention, that includes former Chavistas who have grown disgusted with the corruption and mismanagement by Maduro government that has produced a dire humanitarian crisis.

He speaks of Maduro “packing the Supreme Court following opposition's December's electoral victory to block moves against him. He uses as example of “Left” errors, ignoring Chavez's overspending when oil prices were at record highs, points to recent articles that bury corruption, ignore involvement of Venezuelan officials in drug smuggling, $300 billion of oil revenue, missing from the government's coffers. He speaks of the violence which has made Venezuela the world's “murder capital,” and the profusion of guns which stem from Chavez having armed his supporters after the US supported coup. He compares country's failure to Bolivia's success under Evo Morales and ends with belief that the situation can only worsen.
