Editorial: Democratic Socialist Bernie Sanders and mindless minions pay attention: Venezuela today is what socialism looks like. Yes, Democrats, this is why the Middle Class left you. Some do read history and others can connect the dots even when talking-head propagandists parrot distraction.
Economic crisis caused by Castro’s Communists has drained one of the world’s wealthiest nations to the point food and medicines are gone.
People are starving. Riots are real and purposeful. Evil rules in Venezuela in the form of a high school drop-out former bus driver now dictator who dances on television while his agents kill his people. Praise in hell is assured.
Just to make the point that common culture refuses to acknowledge, Western Civilization rises to stop evil. America may be required to join with Mexico, Costa Rico, Columbia and other responsible South American nations to stop carnage.
Maybe the Venezuela military will do right, but for most of their history that army sells rifles that have only been slightly used, dropped once in surrender. Some suggest they only kill civilians.
Thank God, the godless former-President Barack Hussein Obama who taught criminality disguised as “community organizing” is gone. As law enforcement investigates his crimes and those of the anything-for-power-and-money Hillary Clinton and other tools of the Muslim Brotherhood like Debbie Wasserman Schultz understand that, for most Americans, we support President Donald J. Trump because at least he loves the county and that is more than can be said for the last administration of clowns, cronies and criminals.
Investigate Russia? Sure, but include Democrats or be damned with them.
Understand while this editorial includes strong language, it does not encourage violence in Venezuela or in America. To the contrary; violence must end even if it takes war to do so. Rule of Law must apply equally to the high and mighty as it does to the poverty-stricken. If that is not so then people are not free and rebellion is sure to follow. Pitchforks and torches anyone? Freedom is worth the struggle – Venezuelans know this from direct observation and experience.
Dear reader, it is likely all Democrats, Socialists, Communists, Leftists, and media have stopped reading this editorial at this point. The writer intended to run them off to say this to you: Those mentioned hate us and are fully engaged in treason against our nation and plotting the destruction of those who oppose them. That may mean you – it assuredly means me.
Having owned and written on this domain for over twenty years, you should know that even in the most conservative of all states I have been assaulted, insulted, marginalized, demonized, bum-rushed, betrayed, slandered, libeled and that is not to mention the disapproving raised eyebrow(s) across the room at social gatherings of people who claim relationship.
I don’t fight for the right for them. I engage in principled public debate in hope for my family facing forward that in their days to come they may worship, live and work in freedom, with justice and prosperity.
Oklahoma and national Republicans best not take support for granted. Don’t play tax raising games. If we can’t afford the government we have, then reduce by functionality until it’s within the means of those who pay the bills.
Don’t abuse power. Follow the law and demand others, including your own, do the same. Be righteous or be gone.
Hold a Constitutional Convention in Oklahoma or nationally? If that is what it takes to control the elite! Drain the swamp of Sen. John McCain et al.
Fundamental principles of freedom are costing lives in Venezuela today. As you read this in comfort; men and women of courage stand against an army of rifles, tanks and other death dealing weapons. Not for violence or death or robbing convenience stores do they stand, but for life and freedom and generations of Venezuelan children yet unborn.
They fight to be free. They remember freedom before socialism. They fight the socialism now evolving into communist dictatorship because they have seen how it works and known the truth of what it means to their families.
Oklahoma school teachers – please accept and teach this lesson.
Maybe Democrats should take a clue and dissolve their disgraced party.
Today’s outrage: President Nicolas Maduro’s rivals ‘taken away in the night’
Sky News reports:
Venezuela’s intelligence service has taken away two prominent opposition leaders in the middle of the night, according to their families.
Leopoldo Lopez and Antonio Ledezma were already under house arrest when they were apparently detained in the early hours of Tuesday.
It comes a day after a controversial vote to give the country’s president Nicolas Maduro sweeping new powers that many fear will turn his tight grip on the country into a full-blown dictatorship.
“12:27 in the morning: the moment when the dictatorship kidnaps Leopoldo at my house,” Mr Lopez’s wife Lilian Tintori wrote on Twitter.
She posted a video that showed armed men putting a man, who appears to be Mr Lopez, into a car.
“They just took Leopoldo away. We do not know where he is or where they are taking him,” she added.
The vehicle has ‘Sebin’ written on it – the acronym for the country’s intelligence agency.
US treasury secretary Steven Mnuchin described [Sunday’s] election as “illegitimate” and said it was proof that Mr Maduro is a “dictator who disregards the will of the Venezuelan people”.
Maduro said the vote was for “a power that’s above and beyond every other” and pledged to put “criminal” opponents in jail.
The oil-rich country has seen living standards slump in recent years, with people unable to get basic items, and malnutrition has become a problem.
More than 120 people have been killed [to date] in four months of protests.
