When you are challenged, so goes the saying, kill the challenger before he can do any more damage. Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot and most recently Castro accepted the challenge. They soaked the earth with the blood of their adversaries. To them this was a beautiful thing; they all loved the color red. One other color Maduro relishes is BLACK; black gold. Turning it into money is easy. This is the life blood of the dictator.
Venezuela ship millions of gallons of oil to the United States each year. To put the veritable squeeze on the Venezuelan killing machine is cut off the source of his power. Pull the switch, stop the oil from flowing. Trump can execute this inevitable and necessary step; doing so will put pressure on Castro’s puppet which hopefully ends in the overthrow of Maduro.
Fake elections aside, we remind you of the condoning of Chavez’s rise to power. None other than Jimmie Carter provided cover for Chavisimo’s ascension. Carter has recently undergone nuclear radiation therapy for brain cancer which was probably caused from radiation burn during his time in a nuclear submarine most likely causing him to torpedo the democratic process.
From Carter’s lips, “I would say the election process in Venezuela is the best in the world..”
Times have changed for the worst in Caracas, armed military control the streets, bashing opposition with clubs and bullets, Hundreds are dead having clashed with Maduro’s Tonto Macoutes. The recent sham vote which enables Maduro to run the country unimpeded will only bring more civilian clashes leading to more murders. Totalitarianism is now the soup du jour in Venezuela.
But make no mistake about it, Castro still lives in Venezuela. Yes, Fidel etal took control of the voting booth, passport issuance and identification papers years ago. Castro’s Cubanistas control the vital elections to this day. No way for any opposition leader to win.
FROM THE ATLANTIC:
It’s hard to pick the Venezuelan president’s greatest flaw. Which is more serious: his cruel indifference to the suffering of his people, or his brutal autocratic behavior? Which is more outrageous: his immense ignorance or the fact that he dances on television while his henchmen murder defenseless young protesters in the streets? The list of Nicolas Maduro’s failings is long, and Venezuelans know it; over 80 percent of them oppose him. And it’s not just Venezuelans. The rest of the world has also discovered—at last!—his despotic, corrupt, and inept character.
And yet … Maduro doesn’t really matter. He is simply a useful idiot, the puppet of those who really control Venezuela: the Cubans, the drug traffickers, and Hugo Chavez’s political heirs. Those three groups effectively function as criminal cartels, and have co-opted the armed forces into their service; this is how it is possible that every day we see men in uniform willing to massacre their own people in order to keep Venezuela’s criminal oligarchy in power.
