CARACAS, Venezuela — The U.S. hit Venezuela with new sanctions Wednesday and 13 regional nations — including Canada — called for the suspension of Sunday’s election as Venezuelan Opposition leader Leopoldo Lopez urged citizens to support a 48-hour general strike to protest government plans to rewrite the constitution.

In his first direct public message since being released from prison to house arrest, the 46-year-old former Caracas-area mayor also appealed to the military not to deploy for Sunday’s election of a constituent assembly tasked with overhauling the embattled nation’s charter.

Lopez, who was sentenced to 14 years in 2015 after being convicted of inciting violence during a previous spate of protests, said in a 15-minute video message: “We are on the brink of their trying to annihilate the republic that you swore to defend. I ask you not to be accomplices in the annihilation of the republic.”

The U.S. Army got its first hint about Isaac Aguigui well before the private from Washington state was arrested and charged with the murders of three people.

Records show that Aguigui was kicked out of West Point in 2009 after he pulled a knife during an argument with another cadet.

Troubling as that was, it was not enough for the Army to reject the Cashmere native for service as an enlisted soldier.

The story of how Aguigui’s military career came to a murderous end has been well-told. In 2011 he was arrested as the leader of a secret militia that included at least four U.S. Army soldiers and a dozen or so civilians. Together, they plotted to overthrow the U.S. government.

What ultimately brought the militia members to justice was the murder of a young soldier and the soldier’s girlfriend – killed because the militia members feared the pair knew too much about their plan.

Angry protesters took to the streets of New York City and Washington DC on Wednesday night after the president announced his ban on transgender people serving in the armed forces.

Crowds gathered outside the famed US Army Recruitment center in Times Square with signs bearing slogans including ‘resist’ and ‘rise up’ in a show of defiance against the president’s announcement.

Others marched on foot outside the White House bearing signs which read ‘we’re here, we’re queer, we hate the f****** president’.

The demonstrations were in response to an announcement he made earlier on Wednesday in which he described the cost of transgender healthcare in the military as a ‘burden’.

‘After consultation with my Generals and military experts, please be advised that the United States Government will not accept or allow transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military.

‘Our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming victory and cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail,’ he said.

President Trump will nominate Raytheon lobbyist Mark Esper as secretary of the Army, according to multiple reports and a source in contact with the administration.

Esper would be the third person nominated to be the Army’s top civilian leader and the latest high-ranking addition to the Pentagon from a major defense contractor.

The Washington Examiner first reported the impending nomination, citing an unnamed administration official. Military Times later confirmed, citing “sources.”

A source told The Hill his Trump administration contacts say the report is true.

Esper has served as Raytheon’s vice president of governmental affairs since 2010. Prior to that, he held a number of positions at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

He also brings a wealth of experience in the Army, at the Pentagon and on Capitol Hill.

A Melbourne council is pressuring the federal government to introduce two years of mandatory military conscription for all 18-year-olds, in a bid to tackle youth street crime.

A counselor at Casey Council, in Melbourne’s southeast, said making it compulsory for youths to enlist would give aimless teens direction in life, while also strengthening the nation’s defences against terrorism.

Tom Elliott, from Melbourne radio station 3AW, and Sydney social commentator Jane Caro debated the drastic proposal on Sunrise on Thursday morning.

Ms Caro agreed Australian youths could learn a thing or two by doing a couple of years in the army – but only if they chose to enlist.

“I think making it compulsory in this day and age, when we’re not at the moment and the situation of war, is probably not a good idea.”

She argued young Australians were already struggling to establish careers and break into the housing market, so adding years of defence training into the mix would “just keep pushing back their opportunity to launch themselves.”
