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!

EXCLUSIVE: Interview with Yehuda Remer, Author and Second Amendment Advocate

Published

on

Yesterday, I spoke with Second Amendment advocate and author, as well as my good friend, Yehuda Remer. We discussed his conservatism, how he developed a love of guns and how he turned that into a career, and how he got into writing.

Below is a transcript of our exchange:
JF: Let’s begin. Tell us about your background. Growing up in blue LA, how did you become conservative?

YR: So I grew up in an apolitical home where politics were not mentioned. As an Orthodox Jew, I always figured I was a Democrat because hell, aren’t all Jews? In 2007 while Obama was campaigning for his first term as President, I was driving to work one morning and listening to the local FM DJs. They were talking about some highly inappropriate things and as I sat there listening, I swear I felt the brain cells exploding one by one in my head. I truly felt myself getting stupider by the Second. I decided to turn on AM radio and over the next year, I found myself nodding in agreement with the many common sense things they had to say. Before long I realized not only was I not a Democrat, but I wasn’t even a Republican. I was a full on Conservative, almost Tea Party like. Following that epiphany, I started blowing up Ben Shapiro’s phone because we grew up together and he was my go-to guy. He explained all my questions not in preaching way but in a way that allowed me to make up my own mind based on what he said. I guess you can call me a Ben Shapiro “disciple.”

JF: That’s awesome. What made the Second Amendment and guns your passion?

YR: During my road into politics, I started learning about the Constitution. Because I grew up in an apolitical home, I didn’t care about the country and took it for granted. But after learning about the Constitution, the one that stuck out was the Second Amendment. It made sense to me. Up until that point, I thought the only people allowed to have guns were law enforcement, military, and bad guys. I never realized that a citizen of the United States could own and carry a firearm. My mind was blown. A buddy of mine called me and invited me to the gun range. Let’s just say, the rest is history.

JF: How did you learn everything you need to know?

YR: Most of it I was born with. I’m just a natural. The rest, well, that was with hard work. Like I mentioned before, I would ask Ben to explain tons of things to me. As for my firearms knowledge, the Internet is a wondrous place and so are many people in the Second Amendment world. Any questions I would ask or have, people didn’t hesitate in explaining things to me. Many times I would explain to people that I am a novice. I want to understand. When you approach someone looking to learn, you would be surprised how forthcoming people can be. I constantly am reading about different approaches in the world to get a more full circle understanding. Another thing, especially in the firearms industry, there is no such thing as a stupid question, unlike in other places.

JF: Why do you think the Second Amendment is important? Obviously, as a conservative, we know the answers to this, but would love to hear from your perspective.

YR: I mean, the Second Amendment is the one that protects them all. Without it, we would not be able to keep and protect the freedoms we all hold dear. We would end up like another England, and we all know how well that worked out for them 250 years ago.

JF: How did you turn this passion from a hobby to a career in writing and media?

YR: Well, Ben Shapiro gave me my first real break when I began writing for his old site, Truth Revolt. I started helping him with the back end but that turned to a full-time writing gig. From there, I transitioned into children’s books. I needed a way to educate my children on gun safety and was shocked to find out that there were no books geared towards kids about firearms safety. You have some organizations out there and they do a fine job. But I wanted something where I can climb into my kids’ beds with them and read them a book before they went to bed. After tons of research and finding nothing, I decided to write my first book, Safety On, as a tool to teach my kids about gun safety.

JF: How did you break out into public media, appearing on NRATV many times, getting media credentials to the SHOT show and being interviewed on major gun radio shows?

YR: Wow! Great question. A few months after my first book came out, I applied for a media badge as an author to the NRA Convention in Atlanta. I was shocked that I actually got it. But it paid off. I went there, not knowing anyone and planned on walking around in circles, just handing my book out. Two huge things happened. The first was I literally bumped in Cam Edwards of NRATV and the host of Cam & Co. As a huge fan, I found myself tongue-tied and feeling like a 14-year-old girl at a Justin Bieber concert. Luckily, I quickly snapped out of my daze and offered Cam a signed copy of my book. He took one look at it and told me to wait right there, he is putting me on TV. That was my first appearance on NRATV. Since then, Cam has had me on many more times and even helped me get on some other shows. He has been a blessing. But at one point while I was there, I went to the media room to take a break. Someone walked up to me and asked me if I was the guy who wrote the kids book on gun safety. To this day, Rob Morse of the Polite Society Podcast and I are still friends. Being on that show opened up so many doors for me into the Second Amendment radio world. It truly was a blessing.

As for SHOT Show, one of the connections I made was to the Firearms Chat Podcast and they invited me to be a co-host of their show at SHOT. So getting in was super easy.

JF: When you moved to Texas, did that help you bring this passion out more, considering that Texas is much more gun friendly?

YR: Of course it did. Within six weeks of moving to Texas, I had my license to carry. Life became instantly safer and better.

JF: Your work on this is an inspiration and the Second Amendment and gun rights are something we all need to hold dear. Thanks for being a voice for that.

Where can everyone find your work and appearances, and if they want to follow you?

YR: So all four of my books are available on Amazon. If you want to find out more about me and my appearances I have made, you can visit my website, www.yehudaremer.com.


Yehuda Remer is the author of Safety On: An introduction to the world of firearms for kids, Safety On: The Coloring Book, 10 Little Liberals: A Tale of Hope, and The ABCs of Guns. He lives in Texas with his wife and kids and can be found shooting, writing, and trolling.

Trump’s top pastor, Mark Burns, running for Congress

Published

on

Trey Gowdy is retiring after his term creating a rather large vacancy for Republicans in Congress. Looking to fill the void is Pastor Mark Burns.

Pastor Mark Burns has been lauded as Trump’s top pastor and was rather influential in the 2016 election. His influence landed him or was made clear in the 2016 Republican National Convention where he gave a passionate “All Lives Matter” speech. Mark Burns is the founder and CEO of NOW Television Network. After serving six years in the South Carolina Army National Guard, Pastor Burns along with his wife Tomarra Burns founded the multicultural, non-denominational contemporary church The Harvest Praise & Worship Center of Easley.

Though somewhat new to the political scene, Mark Burns is not without scandal. During the Trump campaign, he was busted for and admitted to padding up his resume with false accomplishments. These remain credibility concerns moving into the race for the South Carolina 4th district. Burns made his announcement via Twitter, highlighting his unifying personality.

 

Reactions

My Take

Considering this race, “Burns”. That being said, he could have a Roy Moore sized scandal level his campaign. But without such, it seems as though this race is over before it began. I remain optimistic about Mark Burns joining the ranks of Congress. Previously, Burns announced he was praying about challenging Lindsey Graham, a notorious warmongering RINO. But it appears either prayer or opportunism has landed him in a different race. Due to his political amateurism, not many of his positions are clear. Oddly enough, he has suggested Federal takeover of public school security. Though his heart seems in the right place, his position shows a lack of localism which small government believes in. It’s safe to speculate that Mark Burns isn’t all that fiscal conservative which isn’t unfamiliar.

On social issues, however, Pastor Mark Burns could be a strong tool for conservatives, so long as he can graduate from being a Trump surrogate. Burns has a more unifying persona than a lot of Republicans adding the possibility of broadening the base. On the issues of race and abortion, Pastor Mark Burns is a powerful voice. Though a strong personality does not make one the best candidate, Burn has tremendous potential to make a difference in DC.

Deep South Conservatism: An Interview with Hunter Hill

Published

on

In modern times the focus in the world of American politics is so often on Washington D.C. Our system of government was designed to give the federal government powers that were limited and narrowly defined. The most important governing is done at the state level.

In my home state of Texas, we have an excellent conservative Governor, Greg Abbot. I got to speak with an exciting new conservative leader on the cusp of being another great governor. Hunter Hill, an Army combat veteran, businessman, and state senator, convinced me he has what it takes to make the great state of Georgia a shining beacon of limited government, where free market principles and liberty reign, and the desires government operatives become irrelevant in the face of the needs and desires of the people.

I’m willing to bet he can convince the fine people of Georgia as well.

BW: What experience and education do you feel you bring to the table that makes you qualified to be Governor of Georgia?

HH: Well I’m a West Point graduate and former Army Infantry Officer, having been through Infantry Officer Basic and Ranger School. I have five combat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan.

I then took on the business world and have been successful in real estate and entrepreneur coaching, and teach others to be successful at them as well. I’ve spent the last five years as a state senator. All of this I believe gives me a great breadth of leadership experience. That, combined with a rock solid conservative philosophy will allow me to lead Georgia in implementing a conservative governing agenda.

BW: What unique challenges or issues do you feel Georgia faces that is perhaps not faced by other states?

HH: Well it’s not that Georgia’s issues are any different than any other state: transportation, education, healthcare. These are things that face any state. What is different is how we are going to approach these issues. Instead of having government-centric solutions we’re going to create an environment that will allow the free market to create the best of everything for all the citizens of Georgia.

BW: If elected what would be your legislative priorities?

HH: First we need to work on budget reform and public safety. Then I plan to work to eliminate the state income tax. Georgia has one of the highest state income taxes. I also want to reform our education system using free market competition where the money we invest would follow the child wherever he or she goes to school.

BW: I can tell you as a native Floridian and a transplanted Texan that’s elimination of the state income tax will encourage business to move to Georgia.

HH: Well exactly, and we’re such an ideally located state in so many ways it’s an important roadblock for business to eliminate.

BW: What national issues do you think you can and should influence as Governor of Georgia?

HH: Well quite a few actually. I think the states can set the example for Washington on how to govern responsibly when it comes to issues such as budgets and taxation and more limited government.

Healthcare is another big issue. While much of the money comes from the federal government. Medicaid is administered by the states and we have got to do better. Medicaid patients are the most expensive and the least healthy.

I also think it’s important to support President Trump’s immigration plans and empower state and local law enforcement to work with federal authorities on enforcing immigration law.

BW: Turning to politics for a moment, what challenges do you face in your campaign and how do you plan to overcome them?

HH: I’ve never run for statewide office so I don’t have the name recognition that the state’s lieutenant governor has. That being said, our message is resonating with Republican voters. We’ve won nearly every straw poll from conservative groups in Georgia and we’re second in the polls.

BW: What do you want to tell the voters of Georgia?

HH: I truly believe we can’t reach our full potential, and in fact, I can foresee us sliding backward if we don’t elect real conservative leadership. Islamic terrorism will never bring us down. Ben you and I have both been over there and we know they will never defeat us because we are strong and they are weak. What will hurt us are liberal policies from career politicians that undermine our constitution.
