Maduro in Venezuela warns his starving people to ‘prep for war with US’

Published

on

It looks like Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro is preparing for war with the United States. He has now asked his army to make sure it has “rifles, missiles and well-oiled tanks at the ready,” as the rhetoric heats up even further between the US and Venezuela. Maduro just asked the citizens of Venezuela to eat rabbits they have kept as pets to help stave off starvation in his country. I doubt that will do much good. On average, each person in Venezuela has lost over 20 pounds since his dictatorship kicked into high gear. They are eating pets and zoo animals. Next stop… cannibalism.

In the meantime, Maduro is giving what food they have to his military. They are eliminating their prison problem by starving the inmates to death. That food also goes to the military. But it is questionable if the military there is getting enough to be in fighting condition or to stay that way. Maduro made the declaration on Monday during a military exercise in Maracay. This was only two days after the Trump administration signed new restrictions imposing bans on the entry of some Venezuelan government officials and their families into the US.

“We have been shamelessly threatened by the most criminal empire that ever existed and we have the obligation to prepare ourselves to guarantee peace,” Maduro proclaimed. The pompous despot is busy prancing around in military garb and trying to look powerful. One minute he says he wants prosperity for Venezuela, the next he says, “we need to have rifles, missiles and well-oiled tanks at the ready…to defend every inch of the territory if needs be.” He doesn’t want prosperity, he wants complete control, belying the murderous communist that he really is.

The government issued the rabbits to citizens some time ago. About two weeks ago, Maduro told them to start eating the bunnies for protein. He is calling for this so they won’t starve to death because of the horrific food shortages there. After being given the rabbits, many people who took part in a pilot project for the rabbit-eating initiative placed bow ties on the bunnies, kept them as pets and cuddled with them in bed. Now, many of them are having a hard time killing the pets they’ve grown to love. But in the end, hunger will win out sadly.

The hard cold truth in Venezuela these days is that there is no food or medicine left. To survive, academics and executives have started selling their bodies as prostitutes to keep their families alive. Forget about medical treatment… if you are ill and need a doctor, you aren’t going to make it there. The weak and infirm are the first to die off during something like this. Maduro’s and his predecessor Hugo Chavez’s socialist policies have brought this down on his people. Communism always ends the same way… in blood, misery and death. Always.

Maduro: Venezuela must prepare for war with the United States – Jazz Shaw, Hot Air

https://hotair.com/archives/2017/09/27/maduro-venezuela-must-prepare-war-united-states/Sadly, the U.S. has a few too many balls in the air right now to dive into this debacle. The idea that we’re preparing to invade Caracas is, of course, absurd hyperbole, but it looks like Nicolas Maduro has some new, powerful friends to help spread his message. Whatever hope remained for the citizens of Venezuela to have a free, prosperous future with democratic representation is quickly fading.

Respect the flag. Criticize the president.

Ties between Caracas and Washington witnessed a major turning point in the 20th Century under Theodore Roosevelt and his successor Howard Taft, who used the “big stick” policy and “dollar diplomacy” to raise US’ diplomatic profile in its backyard: Latin America and the Carribeans.

Final Thoughts

In August, the US slapped Maduro and 20 other top officials with financial sanctions. We also banned American finance companies from lending money to Venezuela’s government and its state-run oil company. However, even though the country can’t pay their debts, I understand Russia and China are sending funds to them. President Trump warned in August that he wouldn’t rule out a “military option” to resolve Venezuela’s political struggles. We are quickly approaching that point. I just hope that most of the people don’t succumb to starvation before we do something.

Last week, Trump told the UN General Assembly that the US was ready to act to restore democracy in Venezuela, after months of deadly protests and economic chaos. I’m not sure if Russia and China have their boys down there, but I suspect we will find out before long and it’s a good bet they do. Maduro oversaw air and ground forces simulating a troop landing involving tanks and missiles. Russian aircraft flew overhead as part of the exercise. He reminded his forces that Venezuela had what he called “the most modern rocket system the armed forces has ever had at any time in its history.” More importantly, he’s got Russia and China behind him. Just like North Korea, Venezuela is a proxy for foreign powers. And the war drums are getting louder by the day.

    Maduro’s response is common among the world’s dictatorships. I saw El Salvador go to war with Honduras in the late 1960s early 1970s. Both countries were in poor economic situations and shaky governments. The solution rally the people around the flag and go to war with your neighbor.
    Maduro is a totalitarian thug.
    As such, his options are few!

ICE gets media beating for taking illegal immigrant into custody over Mexican homicide warrant

ICE gets media beating for taking illegal immigrant into custody over Mexican homicide warrant

It’s the type of story the media craves. An illegal immigrant, Joel Arrona-Lara, who “hasn’t done anything wrong” was detained by ICE agents while transporting his pregnant wife to the hospital. She ended up having to drive herself the rest of the way before delivering their son.

The spin is predictable. They skim over the fact that he has an arrest warrant in Mexico for homicide while putting all the focus on his wife’s dilemma. They even attempt to cast doubt on the warrant because the lawyer for the family says he couldn’t find a record of the warrant. This last part is most peculiar because it would be simple for a major media outlet to confirm the existence of the warrant. They did, of course, but they won’t report that when they have a better quote from the lawyer denying its existence.

Eventually details will emerge about the warrant, but not until the media inflicts as much damage as possible on ICE and anyone in favor of legal immigration being the proper way to enter the country.

Here’s the story. If you click through, you’ll even get a link at the bottom to the family’s new GoFundMe page:

ICE Detains Man Driving Pregnant Wife To Deliver Baby, Says He Is Wanted For Homicide In Mexico

https://losangeles.cbslocal.com/2018/08/18/joel-arrona-detained-by-ice-san-bernardino-driving-wife-to-deliver-baby/Her husband Joel Arrona-Lara was driving his wife to the hospital for a scheduled Cesarean section Wednesday afternoon when they had to stop to get gas. That’s when their car was approached by two SUVs. Maria said they were officers with Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

The mother of five was then asked to show her identification and complied. When the agents asked Arrona-Lara, the couple said he didn’t have the ID on him, but that they lived nearby and could go get it for them. The agents then asked Arrona-Lara to exit the vehicle, searched the car for weapons, and put Arrona into custody, leaving Maria alone at the gas station.

My take

There’s no doubt the circumstances surrounding all of this are unfortunate. Pregnant wives should not have to drive themselves to the hospital for a scheduled C-section. On the other hand, suspected murderers shouldn’t be entering the country in the first place. That point won’t be mentioned by mainstream media.

ICE has a responsibility to take people like Arrona-Lara into custody so it can be determined whether or not they should be deported. There may have even been a certain degree of leeway given had there been no records other than his status as an illegal immigrant, but being a suspected murderer with an arrest warrant took away any chance at leeway. The ICE agents did the right thing.

As a legal immigrant, I have no sympathy for those who cheat the system and break our laws. Blaming the ICE agents for doing their job correctly in order to keep us safe is the type of insanity mainstream media loves to sell us.

The real reason Ocasio-Cortez is afraid of the press

The real reason Ocasio-Cortez is afraid of the press

For at least the second time, reporters were barred from covering an event featuring Socialist Democratic darling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. The campaign’s reason: we want attendees to feel comfortable since there’s so much national press covering her.

This is an absolutely ridiculous excuse, of course. Nobody goes to a campaign event without knowing the press will (should) be there. It doesn’t make them less comfortable and may actually give some a sense of security knowing the answers to their questions will be judged by more than the audience at hand. That’s one of the reasons for the press in the first place, to give information about an event to people who cannot attend.

Instead, the press is getting another roadblock:

Ocasio-Cortez bans press from covering campaign event

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2018/08/17/ocasio-cortez-bans-press-from-covering-campaign-event.htmlAlexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Democratic socialist star running for New York’s 14th congressional district, is facing criticism after her campaign banned journalists from covering a town hall meeting with voters this week.

The Queens Chronicle, a local news outlet, reported that the campaign for the 28-year-old progressive prevented reporters from attending a campaign event in Corona on Sunday, even though it was open to the rest of the public. The campaign reportedly barred reporters from a prior event as well.

It’s conspicuous that a local publication was barred because it runs contrary to the narrative the campaign is trying to sell. So why is she being hidden from reporters at these types of events?

My Take

It’s clear that her exposure is her best friend and worst enemy. Being talked about is a politician’s best friend on the campaign trail, but it also offers a risk of failure. This is most common in events like the town hall meetings she is holding because she’ll be forced to think on her feet.

What if she can’t think on her feet? What if her answers when placed in an unscripted situation the type of answers many would expect from an inexperienced socialist?

Until she’s ready to handle the pressure of having press cover these events, she won’t be ready to hold public office at this level. The House of Representatives isn’t for people who need to be protected from their own answers.

Bettie Cook Scott is a racist politician. And she’s a Democrat.

Bettie Cook Scott is a racist politician And shes a Democrat

Racism is owned by the Republican Party. That’s the narrative the press and their handlers, the Democratic Party, wants America to believe. Someone forgot to get that memo to Michigan state representative Bettie Cook Scott.

Detroit Rep. Bettie Cook Scott on Asian opponent: ‘Don’t vote for the ching-chong!’

https://www.metrotimes.com/news-hits/archives/2018/08/16/detroit-rep-bettie-cook-scott-on-asian-opponent-dont-vote-for-the-ching-chongMore than a dozen community groups have called on Rep. Bettie Cook Scott (D-Detroit) to apologize for a series of racial slurs sources say she used to describe her primary election opponent, Rep. Stephanie Chang (D-Detroit).

Scott is alleged to have referred to Chang as “ching-chang” and “the ching-chong” to multiple voters outside polling precincts during last Tuesday’s election. She’s also said to have called one of Chang’s campaign volunteers an “immigrant,” saying “you don’t belong here” and “I want you out of my country.”

My Take

There are two important takeaways here. First is the hypocrisy surrounding Scott, a (formerly) rising star in the Michigan Democratic Party. If the comments she made were spoken by anyone other than a Democrat, the calls wouldn’t be for an apology. The press and social groups would be calling for her to step down and jump into a hole somewhere.

The second point is that in the real world, the one not seen through the lens of liberals and the media, racism exists everywhere. It is not owned by Republicans, conservatives, old people, white people, or any other classification. One can even make a valid argument that it’s no more prominent in the Republican Party than it is in the Democratic Party that supports groups like Antifa and Black Lives Matter.

Racism must be eliminated from society. That will never happen as long as so many people naively believe it only exists in the minds of certain people on the political right. It exists everywhere. Accept that and we can work to make it stop.
