America will continue to exist, even if the USA does not.

"I doubt even Russia or China can do much this close to America."
(Venezuela is located within America, as is the USA)

There is only one USA regime change where Russia has stepped in, and that is Syria. During the invasion of Iraq and the destruction of Libya, how I wished someone, anyone would intervene.

As you suggest, Venezuela will have to defend itself.

As you say, the last crisis has not ended. See below.

According to Keynesian theory, reducing the interest rates of loans from the FED should cause the economy to boom. So they used that as a response to the 2008 crash, and prevented the worst of that crash from happening. That means banks and large corporations have been allowed to borrow from the FED at ZERO interest rates (for free), since 2008. Without that, the crash should have been much worse.

But the economy never actually recovered, and the interest rates have never been restored to normal. Instead of booming, the worst of the 2008 crash has been stalled. Instead of permitting the normal ups and downs, economic reality has been held in stalled on a sort of "life support" for a whole 10 years.

In case of another crash, they CANNOT further reduce the interest rates. Another bailout may not help much also, as a whole heap of free money has been available for a decade. Basically, the crash of 2008 has not happened yet, BUT IT WILL.

The crash of 2020 will double up with the delayed crash of 2008. And the full force will be unleashed on the businesses and population of the USA, with devastating effect. Without a new "new deal", there is going to be hell to pay.

Do you trust them to do that? They would say that that is what they currently do, and that they are there for the good of everyone.

Her reply indicates that the war is inconsequential so long as the total destruction of ordinary life always happens "over there", and so long as not too many people are seen coming back in coffins. That way it is possible to have war normalized as a permanent feature, and we can be grateful about positive effects on some soldiers.

Re your quote:

That quote demonstrates the power of the Israel lobbies, including AIPAC, over congress, senate, media, banking, judiciary, CIA etc.

Any bill that made an attempt to be fair would not legislate against a single strain of racism, but would legislate against all racism. Yet here we have supposedly targeted against only a single strand of racism.

And it is not even honest at that - Even blind Freddy can see that it is not truly targeted against antisemitism, but against any attempts to hold Israel to account for its VERY bad behavior.

Yet here we have Congress' first act on behalf of their masters.
