Venezuela – President Maduro Speech Cut Short – Reports of Possible Drone Attack (Video)…

Venezuela President Nicolas Maduro was delivering a speech today with a national military parade and all the structured festivities.  During the remarks, an explosion was heard, and several seconds later the crowd responded to state police rushing toward them. The broadcast on state television quickly cuts to a commercial. WATCH:

.

According to initial reporting there was a possible drone attack against the Maduro regime.  However, given the nature of the Maduro government, there is also strong opinion the attack was staged by the government to elicit sympathy.

    “…to *elicit* sympathy.”

    “Illicit” is an adjective.

    On topic: if it is a coup d’etat, good! If it is staged to elicit sympathy, Bah Humbug! 🙂

        @appraiser: I can’t stand Erdogan and his dream to re-establish the Ottoman empire and be crowned for life.

        Having said that that coup against Erdogan was actually staged by Hussein, Brennan and the usual deep state agents with the help of the radical cleric and self exiled Fettulah Gulan who resides in PA becoming one of the richest sharia law clerics hiding out in the US having staged more than one coup against Erdogan from the US.

        He desires to unseat Erdogan and replace him with plans to turn Turkey into a sharia law shithole country.
        Fettulah has been conspiring with the deep state for a while. Not many know that he also has opened many muslim schools/sharia law madrassa type outfits where he abuses the visa laws importing only Turkish teachers employed at these schools. No Americans need apply nor has any of his schools gotten a closer look what they are really teaching.
        It’s like everyone looks the other way and no DOE has any access to these schools nor have they ever tried.

        Erdogan has on numerous occasions asked for Fettulah Gulen extradition.
        WikiLeaks posted a great expose about Hillary, Hussein and deep state actions in Turkey and Erdogan although it did not make a splash like the Podesta expose did.
        There is lots of info dealing with the last coup attempt against Erdogan, the collusion with ISIS and Hussein, Hillary and the deep state and more.

      In the video I saw a while ago, a soldier with a red beret, standing a few persons away to Maduro’s left, falls over as if shot (or fainted?) about a second after the sound of the detonation (which also sounds much stronger in this video, BTW). I don’t even see him on the podium in this video. I think there’s been a lot of funny stuff done with these various video’s, but don’t begin to know which one is closer to reality.

        just thursday evening just before the rally i turned on cspan2 and they had the senate on (i am not sure if it was live but they were killing time until the president started talking) rubio was speaking. going off on the threat of russia and others to our elections. and then he brought up the deep fake video productions again. how you cant trust what you see and so many will be fooled.

        i have surmised for probably since i was under 10 years old that news might be fake, videos and footage with greenscreening etc. seeing news footage of palestine / israel confrontations at the border i think they used to call it was what made me first look at my dad and ask “is this real” and as i grew more and more stuck out to me but obviously people ate it up. but then a funny thing happened, a movie called wag the dog came out and wammo, there it was. in all its drip the truth to the the masses little by little masked with entertainment…

        also when the topic of this came up again late last year on certain sites it again caught my attention. couple months later i remember my mom saying “they even will make fake videos now they are saying” and i said where did you hear that from? surprisingly she said it was on the news…so i knew they were prepping us again.

        then months go by and everyone forgets pretty much suddenly rubio is talking about it…

        now three days later here we are talking about a dang video and it sounds like 20 different people here are seeing 20 different versions of the “same” video?

        really activates the old neurons…

        expect more of this.

      Well that’s just it, a wealthy conservative ought to call her bluff, very publicly.

      Offer her an all-expense paid tour of the socialist hellholes of the world, with security, so precious baby would be safe. Let her see, first hand with her own eyes, the misery and oppression that her unconsidered belief system causes to humanity, wherever it is practiced.

      She won’t do it.

      But her opponent could beat her over the head with her chicken-hypocrisy when she refuses.

      Her opponent could taunt and mock her RELENTLESSLY, and she would have NO credible response.

      If I was her opponent, I would make the offer, if nobody else would.

      You have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

      If she takes you up on the offer, her eyes are opened, and she returns as a completely changed human being.

      And if she doesn’t go, you expose her as not even willing or having the courage to WITNESS the fruit of her own beliefs — much less LIVE them.

      That’s a win-win.

    Perhaps coincidentally, reports en scene depict a nearby high-rise puffing smoke due to a lower-level “boiler room explosion”. Absent photos of one or more conjectured drones, we’d best assume that “socialist jitters” aka regime insecurity render any Maduro Moro expatiation problematic.

    Hello, this is my first comment but I’ve been following along here for several months now and enjoy this site very much.

    I felt something was odd when I watched the clips last night of the explosion. It seemed odd that Maduro did not once look at his wife and show any sign of protecting her. Then I noticed the guy falling over at the right edge of the screen right before they cut away. Did he faint? Was he hit or knocked over. Later we see a guy with a head wound being attended to. Same guy?

    Then in the video below where you can slide the bar when in pause and look at it in slow motion forward and backwards, you can see more. Check the guy with the red cap on the right, to Maduro’s left. His eyes roll to the far left at the beginning second of the video. Both he and Maduro look up at the same location at the same exact time. Maduro very briefly. The guy to Maduro’s left gives a hand signal and then the explosion.

    6 arrests in failed plot to assassinate Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro
    Aug 6, 2018

    https://www.cbsnews.com/news/nicolas-maduro-venezuela-failed-assassination-plot-arrests-today-2018-08-05/

    The assailants flew two drones each packed with 2.2 pounds of C-4 plastic explosive toward Maduro, his wife and other top leaders as he spoke Saturday evening at an event celebrating the 81st anniversary of the National Guard, Reverol said. One of the drones was to explode above the president while the other was to detonate directly in front of him, he added.

    But the military managed to knock one of the drones off-course electronically and the other crashed into apartment building two blocks away from where Maduro was speaking to the hundreds of troops, Reverol said.

    Two witnesses who live in nearby apartment buildings said they saw a drone hovering over a residential street Saturday evening and then heard an explosion.

    One witness showed The Associated Press cellphone video of a drone crashing into a building. He said the drone fell to the ground and exploded, igniting a fire in an apartment.

    “He will use it to concentrate power,” Smilde said. “Whoever did this, he’ll use it to further restrict liberty and purge the government and armed forces.”
