The DOJ needs to investigate if Americans are being paid by Chavez. Communists have a lengthy
history of deception on this subject spanning decades. The groups such as Hands Off Venezuela should also be investigated for contact with foreign intelligence.
The United States government has allowed Commies to violate laws about US citizens interfering in foreign policy. It is time the folks over the ISM and other lunatic leftist groups get prosecuted. Nobody elected them to carry out foreign policy. They were also not hired by a governmental agency to work in this area.
Free speech ends at the borders of the USA. Acting as a human shield or propagandist for a hostile foreign government or getting involved in civil wars are not protected.
How much money if any do the folks at Hands off Venezuela get from Chavez? Is foreign travel subsidized by a hostile foreign regime? How much contact do members of this group have with foreign intelligence or military.
These questions need to be answered and if need be the guilty punished to the maximum extent of the law.
