Why is the media silent on the ongoing migrant exodus from Venezuela

Being a danger to the Democrats, the ‘migrant caravan’ disappeared from the headlines, meanwhile they still ignore the mass exodus from 21st century socialism

Having once been merely biased towards the Left, the national media has become blatantly partisan to the extreme. The ‘Migrant Caravan’ story has been particularly egregious in this regard. From the outset, they propagandised effort until it became clear it was a threat to Democratic midterm narratives. They’ve also ignored the ongoing humanitarian disaster and mass exodus from the ‘21st century socialism’ of Venezuela, Nicaragua and Cuba while they feign compassion for the poor and downtrodden.

Of course, the illegal invader columns of the ‘Migrant Caravan’ are a stark reminder of what would happen were we to hand power to the Democrats. It’s been reported that up to 150 Million people from around the globe would like to migrate to the states. An invasion of that magnitude would be ‘fundamental transformation’, turning the country into another version of the a 3rd world nation. Even worse, the media of the nation’s Socialist-Left has ignored the exodus from the ideology they champion.

Chastity Mansfield detailed 3 facts about the migrant caravan that everyone (even Democrats) should know. It should be clear that criminals are part of the Caravan. That it’s composed mainly of young men and that the offer by Mexico to have them settle in that country has been a bust.

The other mass exoduses the Leftist media doesn’t want to talk about.

Meanwhile, there has been another ‘migration’ the media hasn’t noticed, that would be the mass exodus from the socialist ‘Utopia’ of Venezuela. For example, there is this report from May 2017 on the Brazilian Border Towns Bracing for Massive Wave of Venezuelan Refugees.

Or this article from Sep 18, 2018: Cuba, not the US, is to Blame for the Mass Exodus from Nicaragua and Venezuela.

Then there is this story from Oct 1, 2018 Venezuela Has Lost 13% of its Population in the Mass Exodus from Socialism.

Venezuela’s humanitarian crisis is causing refugee flows that may exceed those of the Syrian Civil War.

Venezuela has lost more than 13% of its population in the wake of the mass wave of migration caused by the so-called “socialism of the 21st century”, which has had dramatic effect on the other countries of the region due to the serious humanitarian crisis.

Official figures from the International Organization of Migration (IOM) indicate that between 2015 and 2017, Venezuelan emigration more than doubled, increasing from 700,000 people to 1.5 million.

The media seems to take pride in being compassionate, and yet they don’t seem to care about those fleeing from the ideology they advocate. In the case of these refugees from socialism, they receive little outside help. This is contrasted by the behind the scenes assistance that has to be present in the case of the ‘Migrant Caravan’. They also aren’t making a beeline for the U.S. Border for all of the promised freebies.

Venezuelans Set Out to Cross the Continent on Foot.

OAS: Regional Crisis of Venezuelan Mass Migration Demands Unified Response.

According to United Nations estimates, close to 2.3 million Venezuelans have left their country because of the political, social and economic crisis, and of those, almost a million have settled in Colombia.

This is clearly an ongoing humanitarian problem and yet the media doesn’t care, why? Could it be that this would be a profound repudiation of those of the nation’s Socialist-Left who are trying to shove their societal slavery down our throats?

The Takeaway.

It’s rather interesting that the Left played up the narrative of the ‘Migrant Caravan’ for a time for it’s propaganda effects. Until they realized its damaging effects on Democratic electoral chances. Meanwhile they ignored an ongoing humanitarian disaster and similar Migrant exodus.

In the first instance, it was to somehow embarrass those on the Right for having this take place. In the second, they have to pretend it’s not really happening because it is a perfect reminder why the Left should never be within reach of the levers of power. Their system of government doesn’t work no matter how many times it’s never been tried, something to be reminded of on Election Day.

Turkish-American relations aren’t better, just quieter than they were

Turkish-American relations arent better just quieter than they were

President Trump said Saturday “we’re having a very good moment with Turkey.” The operative word in his statement was “moment.” In other words, relations can go south at any point, and they probably will very soon.

Diplomatic conflict with Turkey had been escalating for a year until very recently. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has balked at U.S. demands and made harsh statements about America’s foreign policy, particularly as they relate to Iran and Syria. He’s playing a game of brinkmanship, pushing his rhetoric and policies right to the edge before backing down.

Right now, he’s in his quiet mode. That likely won’t last long.

As Burak Bekdil noted at Gatestone, the list of problems between the United States and Turkey has not been reduced.

Turkey and US: Conflict Contained, Not Resolved

https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/13328/turkey-us-conflict-containedOnly three months ago Turkey and its NATO ally the United States had too many issues about which to disagree: They had major divergences over Syria; they had different views on Turkey’s plans to deploy the Russian-made S-400 air defense system on NATO soil; they had mutual sanctions on top government officials due to Turkey’s refusal to free Andrew Brunson, an American evangelical Christian pastor living in Turkey who faced bogus charges of terrorism and espionage; they had a potential U.S. decision to block delivery to Turkey of arms systems, including the F-35 stealth fighter; they had potential U.S. sanctions on a Turkish public bank; the U.S. had doubled tariffs on Turkish steel and aluminium; a Turkish boycott on U.S. electronics; major differences over Syrian Kurds; and Turkey’s persistent demands for the extradition of Fethullah Gülen, a Muslim cleric who is Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s political nemesis, living in self-exile in Pennsylvania.

This could be a calm before the storm between the United States and Turkey. Both nations are pushing against each other, especially in reference to U.S. policy in the Middle East. The two NATO allies will be acting more like enemies very soon unless one or the other backs down.

That’s almost certainly not going to happen.

We must be very mindful of and cautious towards Erdogan. His lust for power is quickly manifesting as a desire to be the de facto leader of the Middle East Muslim world. To do that, he’ll need to turn America into a symbolic enemy for the whole region.

State Department denies claims MBS involved in Khashoggi killing

State Department denies claims MBS involved in Khashoggi killing

Yesterday, reports were flying across the news wire that the CIA had concluded Saudi Crown Prince and de facto ruler Mohammed bin Salman was involved in the killing of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi. The State Department issued a statement today denying the claim, stating no conclusion has been reached.

My Take

This is a lie. The State Department has seen and heard the mountains of evidence. The various cover stories put forth by the Saudi government have been hollow and debunked. They aren’t investigating further. They’re simply buying time and hoping other stories will help sweep this one under the rug.

Either MBS is so incompetent and disrespected that members of his own team went behind his back to murder someone, or he gave the order. The fact that Saudi Arabia wants us to buy the “rogue killer” is absolutely pitiful.

Pacific Rim summit highlights strained China-US relations

Pacific Rim summit highlights strained China-US relations

PORT MORESBY, Papua New Guinea (AP) — A meeting of world leaders in Papua New Guinea has highlighted divisions between global powers the U.S. and China and a growing competition for influence in the usually neglected South Pacific.

The 21 nations at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in Port Moresby struggled to bridge differences on issues such as trade protectionism and reforming the World Trade Organization, making it likely their final statement Sunday will be an anodyne document.

U.S. Vice President Mike Pence and China’s President Xi Jinping traded barbs in speeches on Saturday. Pence professed respect for Xi and China but also harshly criticized the world’s No. 2 economy for intellectual property theft, forced technology transfers and unfair trading practices.

In Port Moresby, the impact of China’s aid and loans is highly visible. But the U.S. and allies are countering with efforts to finance infrastructure in Papua New Guinea and other island states. The U.S. has also said it will be involved in ally Australia’s plan to develop a naval base with Papua New Guinea.

On Sunday, the U.S., New Zealand, Japan and Australia said they’d work with Papua New Guinea’s government to bring electricity to 70 percent of its people by 2030. Less than 20 percent have a reliable electricity supply.

“The commitment of the United States of America to this region of the world has never been stronger,” said Pence at a signing ceremony. A separate statement from his office said other countries are welcome to join the electrification initiative provided they support the U.S. vision of a free and open Pacific.

China, meanwhile, has promised $4 billion of finance to build the the first national road network in Papua New Guinea, among the least urbanised countries in the world.
