          Calls to 'abolish billionaires' raise eyebrows, but they've been a long time coming      Cache   Translate Page      

alexandria ocasio cortez

  • A New York Times editorial titled "Abolish Billionaires" introduced many readers to an increasingly strong rallying cry on the American left.
  • Progressive politicians are calling for significantly increased taxes on the rich to counteract exceptionally high levels of wealth inequality in the US.
  • While there may be eyebrow-raising rhetoric around these policies, they aren't radical.
  • This article is part of Business Insider's ongoing series on "Better Capitalism."

For the first time on a large scale, Americans are debating whether to allow the existence of billionaires.

On Thursday, The New York Times published columnist Farhad Manjoo's "It's high time we abolish billionaires" above the fold on the front page of its print edition. While Manjoo is far from the first person to articulate the idea — see freshman congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's call for a 70% tax rate for income above $10 million or Sen. Elizabeth Warren's call for a 3% wealth tax for fortunes above $1 billion — the unequivocal rallying cry was something different for the paper of record.

The ensuing arguments about his piece were about what you'd expect: ad hominem attacks and the pitting of capitalism against socialism. A Fox News panel called Manjoo "an idiot" and dismissed the critique of inequality as an attack on capitalism. Readers raised examples of "good billionaires."

Democrats have been arguing for years now about the value of socialism, but as Ocasio-Cortez's policy adviser Dan Riffle — known for his Twitter handle "Every Billionaire is a Policy Failure" — alluded to in a tweet, even if AOC, Sen. Bernie Sanders, or Warren are too radical for you, just look at what Trump-appointed Federal Reserve chairman Jerome Powell is saying.

"We want prosperity to be widely shared. We need policies to make that happen," Powell said on Wednesday, according to the Washington Post. "The U.S. lags now in mobility. And that's not our self-image as a country, nor is it where we want to be. ... We have some work to do to make sure that the prosperity we do achieve is widely spread."

Regardless of an ideological lens, there's a growing consensus: The United States needs a course correction, and decreasing inequality is crucial.

The rich are clearly getting richer

The French economist Thomas Piketty wrote that, "the incomes of the top 1% collectively made up 11% of national income in 1980, but now constitute above 20% of national income, while the 20% of US national income that was attributable to the bottom 50% in 1980 has fallen to just 12% today."

Additionally, he wrote, "while average pre-tax income for the bottom 50% has stagnated at around $16,000 since 1980, the top 1% has experienced 300% growth in their incomes to approximately $1,340,000 in 2014. This has increased the average earnings differential between the top 1% and the bottom 50% from 27 times in 1980 to 81 times today."

It's not wild, then, to call the moment we're in America's "second Gilded Age," referring to the post-Civil War era of robber barons and industry, where the wealthy kept living better and the poor kept getting worse.

Occupy Wall Street remained relatively small in the wake of the financial crisis, but it did make income and wealth inequality, the language of the 99% and the 1%, a prime topic of discussion. Populist sentiment increased throughout the country, and Vermont's democratic-socialist senator and New York's celebrity real estate billionaire did better in the 2016 election than anyone predicted. The latter, Donald Trump, became president and right-wing rhetoric won, but it also brought with it standard conservative policies, like tax cuts for the rich.

'Abolishing billionaires' isn't as radical as it seems

In his article in the Times and during a followup on Twitter, Manjoo proved to be less into the notion of going so far as to virtually capping how much money Americans could make — not even Ocasio-Cortez has advocated for that —but he is in support of significantly higher taxes on the rich. And you don't have to be a radical for that. There have been many polls that show the majority of Americans at this point are in favor of the same thing.

While "abolish billionaires" is an eye-catching phrase with radical implications, raising taxes to pre-1980s levels is certainly not radical, said Stephanie Sterling, vice president of advocacy and and policy at the Roosevelt Institute.

Sterling told Business Insider that questioning the role of billionaires in our society "is an important contribution to the debate," because it's focusing on structural changes that need to take place, to keep extreme wealth from harming the economy.

What the country needs, she said, is "robust antitrust policy, meaningful limits on stock buybacks, much higher tax rates, and the meaningful restoration of the ability to form and join unions." If getting riled up about billionaires leads voters to elect officials who support those policies, that will successfully correct for what she considers to be the mistakes of the past 40 years.

"I think we're all passengers in a billionaire hijacking," author and critic Anand Giridharadas told Business Insider about how the US got to a boiling point. "We were all drugged on the plane, and these guys are now terrified in the cockpit because they're realizing that in the back there we just woke up."

The billionaires themselves are taking sides

Potential presidential candidates and fellow billionaires Howard Schultz and Michael Bloomberg are not fans of Ocasio-Cortez's call for a 70% tax rate for income above $10 million or Warren's call for a 3% wealth tax for fortunes above $1 billion, and have used phrases like "un-American" and referred to chaos in Venezuela as proof of where these policies would lead.

Investor and progressive activist Nick Hanauer, however, saw this coming. Hanauer, whose fortune must approach $1 billion considering he signed Warren Buffett and Bill Gates' Giving Pledge, famously wrote in Politico a few years ago that "the pitchforks are coming."

He told Business Insider that he's been seriously considering the notion that every billionaire is a policy failure, saying "there can be no doubt that the thrust of the argument is correct — that in a country where so many people are barely getting by, or not getting by at all, an economy that mints billionaires is structurally deficient. There is no reasonable moral or practical justification for these disparities in wealth and income."

Hanauer noted that even with significantly higher taxes, America's wealthiest would remain on top, and their buying power would remain relative.

"I also feel strongly that the Neoliberal contention that me getting immensely wealthy does not harm you, and that your objection to it is just petty jealousy is also wrong," he said. "The richer the rich get, the farther apart the rungs of opportunity are stretched. An economy dominated by a few people with infinite wealth is characterized by arms races for status that benefit no one and harm most people."

Via The Saker blog,

Reporter’s Diary from Venezuela.

Georgy Zotov (author of AIF weekly)

This is the personal view of the correspondent on today’s life of Caracas.

Translated by Scott

Day one...

Our Air France flight was grounded in Paris for 5 hours; no one wants to land in Venezuela in the middle of the night, due to the “dangerous criminal situation.” The airliner is half empty, the passengers, judging by nervous conversations, are only Venezuelans. A taxi driver, while leaving the airport, locks the doors, and sweetly warns that after dark, bandits scatter spikes on the roads and rob the stranded cars. “Oh, don’t worry, Amigo, I have an old car. They are not interested in old, cars.” That’s where you understand why Caracas is ranked first in the ranking of the most dangerous cities in the world. It’s too late for supper, but I at least want to exchange my US dollars for Venezuelan bolivars. I ask my cab driver. He violently shakes his head:

“No, no, no. I do not mess with such things, it’s illegal!”

“Whatever,” I laugh at him.

“Tomorrow, someone will take the dollars, maybe even with my hands torn off.” I was wrong…

The following morning, no one at the hotel wants to look at my dollars.

The hotel employee tells me to go to one of the official “exchange stores” but honestly adds: “only Americans, or complete jerks go there.”

In Venezuela, the official dollar exchange rate is 200 bolivars, and the “black market” exchange rate is 2,715. And if you exchange your currency in a bank, then according to this calculation, a bottle of ordinary water will cost 330 rubles, and a modest lunch in an inexpensive cafe—7,000 rubles per person. Judging by the stories on the Internet, in Venezuelan people should simply kill each other for dollars, but this is not the case.

There is also other things different from perception. On western news, it is shown that demonstrators fight with police daily, tens killed, hundreds wounded, the sea of blood. But in Caracas, all is quiet. In an afternoon, people are sitting in cafes and idly sipping rum with ice, while maintenance crews sweep the streets. It turns out that the world ‘s leading TV new sources (including CNN and the BBC) show some fantasy film about Venezuela. “Demonstrations?” yawns Alejandro, a street vendor selling corn. “Well, Saturday there will be one, sort of. On one end of the city will be a rally of opposition supporters, and on the other, Maduro supporters. The police keep them separate to prevent fights.”

Amazing.

You browse the Internet, you turn on the TV, and you see the revolution, the people dying on streets to overthrow the “evil dictator Maduro.” And you come here, and nobody cares.

Then it got even better. Never in my life have I had so many adventures while trying to exchange one currency for another. The country has a problem with cash money, long queues waiting for the ATM, and even the street dealers of “currency” have no “efectivo,” as they call cash. I wander inside a jewelry store and ask if they want some “green.” The answer is “No.” Everyone acts like law-abiding citizens. I am told that police recently started arresting people for private exchange, that’s why people don’t want to associate. One owner of the jewelry store almost agrees.

“What do you have? Dollars? No, I won’t take that.”

“Why now?”

“I take only the Euros …dollar, man, is the currency of the aggressor, they try to tell us how to live!”

Damn it! I have money in my pocket, and I can’t even buy lunch! Finally, a certain woman, nursing a baby in a workplace, very reluctantly agrees to exchange 2,200 bolivars for a “buck.” I want to curse her out, but I have to live somehow. Bolivars seem like a beautiful, unattainable currency, which hides all the benefits of the world, that’s why they are so hard to get. I’m nodding in agreement. The woman calls somewhere, and asks to wait. After 15 minutes she tells me that “there is a problem.” Of course, money is not to be found. Her man couldn’t withdraw them from the ATM, everywhere the ATMs are on a strict daily rate.

“President Maduro is fighting for the strengthening of the national currency,” explained the nursing mother. “We all use our cards to pay for everything.”

I don’t know how it works, but yesterday an exchange rate was 3,200 bolívars for 1 dollar, and today the “bucks” fell to 2,700. I have started to realize that in the very next few days I’ll starve to death with dollars in my pocket. A unique fate, perhaps, that has never happen in history.

In the next kiosk cash for gold place I am offered a plastic debit card loaded with local money, and then I would try my luck withdrawing bills from neighboring ATMs. “Or, maybe not, if you’re not lucky.” Well, of course. By the way, an attempt to buy a SIM card for the phone also fails. They don’t sell them to foreigners, you need a Venezuelan ID card. Yes, and I have nothing to pay for it. The feeling is that the dollar is a gift that no one wants. Sadly, I walk by stores. People come out of there with packages of eggs, bread, packs of butter. The range is not like in Moscow, of course, but again, if you believe the news on TV, Venezuela is suffering from a terrible famine, supermarkets are empty, and people are fighting each other for food. Nothing like that. There are queues, but not kilometers long. In general, television stations in the United States and Europe (and ours too) created their own Venezuela, drawn like a terrible cartoon. I walk into a cafe at random.

“Will you accept dollars for lunch?” I ask hopelessly.

“Yes, at the rate of “black market” they whispered to me.

“But the change will also be in dollars... sorry, no bolivars at all...we’ve been hunting for them ourselves for weeks.”

My first day in Venezuela is over. How unusual. I’ve been here for 24 hours, and I’ve not held a Bolivian bill in my hand. Oh, but there will be more...

Day two...

60 liters of gasoline here cost five cents, and a basket of basic food products - 50 rubles (about 90 cents).

“The gas station,” my driver reaches into his purse and takes out a banknote of 2 Bolivar. The exchange rate of the Venezuelan currency changes every day, and today it is 2,580 bolivars per one dollar. In Russian money, that is 10 cents. “We must now fill a full tank,” says the taxi driver. 60 liters of gasoline cost 1 bolívar, but we give the 2 bolivars bill, because there is no 1 bolivar bill.  I can’t believe that is a full tank of fuel costs FIVE CENTS?

“And how much can you even fill at this price?”

“Once a day for every citizen. And it’s enough for me.”

All the way to the center city, the driver scolds President Maduro, and tells me how much he loves America, and how it will be good when the “guy with mustache” is finally overthrow by the Americans.

I start to think that I don’t feel sorry for Maduro at all. He really corrupted en entire country with such generous handouts. And they willingly take, but no one says “thank you,” just that they want more and more.

On the street there is a long line into a “social supermarket,” a place you can buy 400 types of goods at the solid low prices. These shops were established by the late President Hugo Chavez “to fight inflation and protect the poor.” The stores are funded by the Venezuelan government. The buyer comes with a passport, gets a number, and waits in line until they are allowed to enter and buy a certain set of products. The selection isn’t very impressive, only the essentials: chicken, bananas, pineapples, sausages, milk. A box of these food items costs of equivalent of 50 rubles. CNN and the BBC show videos of Venezuelans wrapped in rolls of toilet paper and sadly wandering across the border with Colombia. The toilet paper is found in absolutely every store, and without any problems. I am once again simply amazed: Western TV news is something from Hollywood, they are not reporting but making fantasy blockbusters. On the BBC website I read that hungry Venezuelan children after school go to take a look at the street vendors cooking meat. I’ve been all over the town. Restaurants, cafes, eateries, during the lunch hour are crowded, and people look well-dressed. The mass hunger, the Western media paints for us, doesn’t exist in reality.

I take a few pictures inside the supermarket, and I am immediately approached by the workers or “Maduro followers.”

“It’s forbidden to take pictures here.”

“Is this a military facility?”

“Leave or we’ll call the police.”

“Listen, everywhere on TV they tell us that there is hunger in Venezuela. I want to prove that the reality is different.”

“We are not interested, we just work here: leave immediately!”

I started to understand perfectly well why Nicolas Maduro lost the information war. Hugo Chavez was often praised even in private conversations, but even Chavez supporters find little positive to say about Maduro.  When people protested against Hugo’s endless nominations as the head of state, he used to meet them with the open arms, smiling and saying : “Guys, what’s the problem? I’m your President, I love you, let’s sit down and talk!” Maduro doesn’t have this image of being one of the guys. He is not able to communicate with the public, and his assistants, like the employees of the social store, can only push and ban and threaten with the police.

On the streets, provincial farmers sell fruits and vegetables: mango, tomatoes, cucumbers. All about the same price of 25 rubles per kilogram. Here, a dozen eggs from street vendors is 4,800 bolivars or about 130 rubles, and that is not cheap. During the peak of oil prices, when a barrel of oil was sold for $150, Venezuela lived on the principle of a rich fool. To develop domestic production? No, what is that nonsense?  We can buy every triviality abroad. Even the managers of the oil production weren’t local, they hired specialists from Europe, and paid them a lot of money. Food imports into the country reached 95 percent. And now the situation is not too different. When I order my meal in a cafe (incidentally, still paying in dollars, all attempts to change dollars to bolivars failed), I get excellent pork. “Where is it from?” “From Colombia.” “And chicken?” “From Brazil, that’s why it’s so expensive.” Even flour for bread comes from neighboring Guyana. Chavez and his successor Maduro wanted to be “people’s presidents,” handing out money left and right. But then oil prices collapsed, food shortages began, and people rebelled. People demand as before: cheap food in supermarkets, gasoline for nothing, and they don’t want to hear anything more or less.

“Chavez was a great guy!” says a fan of the former president, 75-year-old Raul Romero, dressed in a red “chavist” shirt.

 “Maduro is nothing like him! There is speculators on the streets, he does nothing. In his time, Chavez arrested the dealers raising food  prices, closed their shops, confiscated land from landowners, and gave it to the people. We need a firm hand, a real dictatorship!”

In the TV world, Maduro is portrayed as a dictator and executioner, although in Venezuela, he is openly scolded for being meek; they draw cartoon of him, and insult him as much as they can. But who cares about the truth? Much more colorful to show the suffering for the toilet paper.

Day three...

“I got robbed by a COP for my phone. I’m talking on the cell phone outside, he walks over to me, pokes in my side with his gun. “Give me your mobile.” I don’t understand immediately, and automatically continue the conversation. He cocks his gun, and says, “Kill.” I give him my phone. It’s still good, I love being robbed by cops. They are not bandits from the “Barrios,” the poor neighborhoods in the mountains, who can shoot you first and then rummage your corpse’s pockets. I’m lucky, I’ve lived in Venezuela for 27 years and this was the first time I was “hop-stopped.” A lot of people get robbed every year.

I am talking to Mikhail, a citizen of Russia living in Venezuela since the beginning of the nineties. He helps me move around Caracas and instructs me on how to visit the local slums. “You don’t have protection? Oh, who would doubt that. Then leave your watch, phone, and camera at the hotel. Take some money for a taxi, you also have to have some cash in case you get ambushed, otherwise they might get offended and kill you. Sometimes, people get shot in an arm and a leg, that survivable.” After such a nice story, I still go to the “Barrios.” It is there that the supporters of President Nicolas Maduro mainly live. According to CNN and BBC, impoverished people in Venezuela are revolting against the government. Nothing can be further from the truth; it’s a wealthy middle class that goes to demonstrate. Maduro is applauded in poor neighborhoods, because the President gives their residents free food sets enough for a month and gives free (!) apartments. Formally, they belong to the state, but people live in them for generations.

“I will cut a throat for the President,” a heavily-tattooed man smiles menacingly, and introduces himself as Emilio.

“Who else would give me food and a ‘roof ‘ for free? He is our father and benefactor.”

Maduro deliberately does not touch such people, which is why crime in Caracas gushes over the edge. I am advised not to stop on the street to look at anything, but just to keep going, otherwise bandits will have time to look closely at me. That’s why they have constant robberies on the streets, plus the police and the national guard can easily take away your favorite things. No one can be happy about all these. “I love Russians,” told me the businessman Carlos while conversing over coffee near the Plaza de Bolivar.

But you’d better send Maduro economic advisers. Teach him a lesson! He doesn’t know anything about economy. He has one recipe for everything, to give more money to the poor, more free apartments, free food, free gasoline, to build a full communism here. But with this, sorry, any state would collapse.”

The opposition rally in the Western part of Caracas is huge, at least 100 thousand people gathered. The protesters are friendly to me, Russia here is respected. It is not considered an enemy. Zero aggression at all… and then I  wonder about what I see on CNN, videos of the opposition being rolled into a pancake by tanks. The police keep the neutrality, it disappears from the streets, to not give a cause to provocateurs. People are happily waving flying in the sky military helicopter. Many-in t-shirts with the American flag, a man passes by, holding a hand-written poster with the altered slogan of Donald Trump -“Make Venezuela great again.”

“Do you love the U.S.?”

“Yes, adore it!”

“I remember you already had a pro-American President in 1993, Carlos Andrés Pérez. He sharply raised the price of gasoline, 80% of the goods were imported, he drove the republic into billions of IMF debts. People went to demonstrations, and Pérez drowned them in blood, killing 2,000 people…then he fled to America.”

The man freezes, with his mouth open. Finally, he gets the gift of speech back.

“I hope this time the pro-American President will be different.”

“Are you sure?”

“Sorry, I have nothing to say.”

Asking the girl from the opposition how she feels about the US:

“The US is our neighbor, let them change the power here.”

“In countries where the US changed power like Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan, hundreds of thousands people were killed. Are you ready for this?”

Again, she pauses and sighs.

“No, no, no. We are not Africa or Asia. All will go peacefully. Venezuelans will not kill each other.”

Where the opinions splits is the question of whether the free gasoline and free food packages will remain with an American-instilled government. Many are sincerely sure that the “freebies” will remain under a new president. How else? The minority that recognizes that state gifts will be canceled say that they at least “we will be free.” As I said, the protesters are mostly well-dressed, well-off people. By the way, the leader of the opposition, Juan Guido, also has no real economic program promising to “quadruple the oil production.” No one thinks that after that price will fall four times. In short, I get a feeling that neither the President, nor the opposition, know anything about the economy in Venezuela.

The demonstrations in support of Maduro take place at the other end of the city, to prevent the opponents from fighting.

“You Americans are insolent!” screamed an old woman in a red t-shirt rushing towards me.

“Bastards! You should be hanged on a first tree! Cheers to socialism!”

“I’m Russian, grandma.”

The old lady recoils.

“Sorry, please.”

“Don’t get that upset, senora.”

Many people gathered here are joyful, dancing and singing.

A soldier stands in front of me and doesn’t allow me to take any pictures. Not just me, but also other passers-by.

“You can’t take pictures here.”

“Says who?”

“President Maduro.”

No, Maduro is definitely doing everything he can to be disliked. Those gathering here are poor, blue-collared workers and farmers from the suburbs. I am interested , honestly, were you brought here on the busses? “Yes, he did!” says one grandfather, proudly displaying a portrait of Che Guevara.

“But I would walk here for Maduro! It’s a lie that we were paid to be here.”

Other people applaud him happily. I shake hands. “Russians are welcome! Venezuela loves you, you’re home.”

The day of rallies is over. The maintenance crews came to the sidewalk, strewn with plastic bottles, crumpled packs of cigarettes, and other debris left after by a cloud. At the entrance of an old house, old people drink coffee.

“They say that today some general has defected to the side of the opposition,” says one of them.

“Some significant person.”

“What’s this guy’s name?”

“Who knows?”

Venezuela is split in half. And the situation there may change at any moment.

Restored Republic via a GCR: Update as of Feb. 9 2019

Below is a summary of information from the Internet. It would be up to the individual reader to do their own research and decide whether or not it was valid. A Special Thank You to Martha for her untiring research efforts in discerning the Truth, Dale who keeps me in line and Ken who uncovers almost unlimited intel on pedophiles to help us Save the Children. Patience is a Virtue. Having Virtue is a sign of a good moral being. Good moral beings have the power to overcome evil and change the world.

Judy Note: The RV was said to have begun on Feb. 5 with the Chinese New Year. Some have reported being paid out and were liquid. Bank Front Screen Rates were rising, so being first may not always be the best thing. Zim redemption would begin anytime between now and Feb. 15. If the US was GESARA compliant (US Border crisis resolved) currency exchanges would take place after Feb. 15. At any time HSBC could send out notices to set exchange/ redemption appointments. Some say by Mon. Feb. 11.

A. Rumored Timeline:

Zim redemption would begin anytime between now and Feb. 15. If the US was GESARA compliant (US Border crisis resolved) currency exchanges would take place after Feb. 15. Some say by Mon. Feb. 11.

Feb. 15 was also the deadline for funding the U.S. government.

On Feb. 15 President Trump and Queen Elizabeth were to formally collapse the British (with Brexit) and American (Federal Reserve, IRS) Cabal financial system, along with implementing Martial Law in both the US and UK.

If the Border Wall wasn’t funded by Feb. 15 Trump said he would declare Martial Law.

Certain major announcements would be made over the following long weekend to Feb. 18, which celebrated Washington’s (a new nation functioning within the original Constitution) and Lincoln’s (freedom from slavery) birthdays.

B. Feb. 8 2019 10:56 am EST Intel Alert: Operation Disclosure: GCR/RV Intel Alert for February 8, 2019 Operation Disclosure (Disclaimer: The following is an overview of the current situation based on intelligence leaks received from several sources which may or may not be accurate. Other confirmed sources may also be included in this overview.)

1. All sovereign nation must be GESARA compliant or be locked out of the new quantum financial system.

2. The Cabal has been attempting to overthrow/control governments to disrupt GESARA. This is why there was an attempted coup in Zimbabwe last month.

3. The Cabal were attempting to derail GESARA by not passing Brexit and not giving border wall funding for Trump.

4. Brexit was the UK's GESARA compliance. The UK is the last sovereign nation to be non-compliant with GESARA.

5. The Brexit vote is on the 15th. The UST runs out of funding on the 15th. If Brexit is not passed, martial law will be declared in the UK. If border wall funding is not received, a national emergency will be declared in the US. Both may occur simultaneously.

6. The declaration of martial law in the UK and a national emergency in the US will mark the end for the Cabal. GESARA will be enforced via military intervention. Mass indictments, arrests and tribunals will occur in the US. The UK will break up starting with Northern Ireland and Scotland. The Cabal will be totally wiped out worldwide.

7. This would cause the financial markets to crash, which would pave the way for a sudden surge of funds via the RV/GCR. Something historical might happen this month.

8. The RV may begin either before or after these events. Watch the 15th.

70,000 Elite Pedo Ring Busted by Police, 30 countries involved By alexmark

An Internet pedophile ring with up to 70,000 members — thought to be the world’s largest —has been uncovered by police, a security official said Wednesday.

The European police agency Europol said in a statement that “Operation Rescue” had identified 670 suspects and that 230 abused children in 30 countries had been taken to safety. More children are expected to be found, Europol said.

It said that so far 184 people had been arrested and investigations in some countries were continuing. Most of those detained are suspected of direct involvement in sexually abusing children.

They include teachers, police officers and scout leaders, AP reported. One Spaniard who worked at summer youth camps is suspected of abusing some 100 children over five years.

Europol director Rob Wainwright said Wednesday the ring, which communicated using an Internet forum, was “probably the largest online pedophile network in the world.”

Cori Bassett, a public affairs officer for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, said in an email that there had been five arrests and four convictions in connection with Operation Rescue in the U.S.

“Arrests so far have been made in Georgia and Connecticut. ICE continues to pursue the leads provided by Europol,” she added.

The website was shut down following the three-year investigation, Europol said.

N. History:

Between Oct. 1 2017 and March 31 2018 the US Mint and Gold Reserves were audited by the Office of Inspector General. Many were served federal indictments, arrested and found guilty of illegally confiscating public funds. Audits you haven’t heard about: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n9Rc4h2OiF0

Sat. Jan. 2 Military Tribunals: For around two years there would be Military Tribunals litigating charges on political elites including Bush, Clintons, Obama, Biden and Soros, whom were believed now residing at, or on their way to GITMO.

Mon. Jan. 21 early morning: the Cabal-owned USA Inc. rule over national and international monetary systems ended. US Taxpayers were no longer funding the IRS, Federal Reserve, Bank of London, Vatican Bank and Central Banks across the globe, but sending US tax monies directly to the new US Treasury in Reno. There was a restoration of the US Republic while We The People returned to the original Constitution. Power over political and monetary affairs had been taken away from political elites in Washington DC and given back to The People in their local State-run governments.

Tues. Jan. 29: The Gold Standard was announced as President Trump tweeted: “Our economy, right now, is the Gold Standard throughout the world.”

Tues. Feb. 5: The first phase of the RV was said to have begun after Mon. midnight or 12:01 am Tues. Feb. 5.

O. Redemption/Exchanges:

Zim redemption appointments would be made through emergency text, or email with the number to call. Currency exchange appointments would use 800#s sent out through websites or email. If you were a Zim redeemer and called an 800 number you would be steered to a redemption center in your area, or be given another number to call to obtain your redemption appointment. Global Markets were set to crash in order to hide the huge influx of monies from the Global Currency Reset.

La Corte Suprema Venezuelana è illegale e non conta nulla. È stata designata da Maduro quale Presidente illegale. A mio avviso tutto vale, a questo punto, quando Maduro ha fatto fallire tutti i precedenti tentativi di conciliazione, pur di abbattere l'usurpatore narcotrafficante e pluriomicida.

Felice la Corte suprema venezuelana (Tribunal supremo de Justicia, Tsj) ha dichiarato nulla la legge sulla transizione approvata a inizio settimana dall'Assemblea nazionale (An). In più sono stati scoperti ingenti rifornimenti di armi USA per i golpisti, ed a quanto pare Guaidò è indagato per usurpazione di potere, ma la Corte ha stabilito anche che si dovranno indire elezioni entro 12 mesi... Alla fine credo si vada verso quest'ultima strada come è forse giusto che sia anche perchè un intervento diretto degli USA è praticamente improbabile, comunque nota a margine, i narcos sono sponsorizzati in tutta l'America latina proprio dai regimi più filo-americani, ad esempio la Colombia tanto per dirne uno, vedasi cartello di Cali, che ebbe una parte importante per la distruzione di quello di Medellin, insomma sono affari sporchi in ogni caso anche perchè sono gli americani i maggiori consumatori di cocaina... Comunque tutto ciò solo a titolo informativo, ripeto per me spetta solo ai venezuelani decidere del loro futuro e non a dei paesi terzi, non tifo Maduro ne tantomeno il bamboccio prodotto nei laboratori di Washington.

Guaidò potrebbe anche essere trans, nero, ebreo, drogato, sieropositivo, servo di Soros e delle multinazionali globalizzate, arcobaleno, pro-gender ed il concentrato di tutti gli stereotipi negativi della peggior destra italiana per i suoi avversari: in ogni caso lui è il Presidente provvisorio del Venezuela, non Maduro!

Werner. Non è vero niente, scusa. Maduro è un Presidente illegale, è un totale incapace che ha ridotto Venezuela sul lastrico, un Paese dal quale tutti o quasi aspirano solo a fuggire, è un energumeno ignorante istigatore di violenza, un liberticida, un corrotto, un ladro, un castrista immondo a capo di un gran cartello di narcotrafficanti, che fonda il suo potere su 46.0000 "consiglieri" cubani e militari venali.., Maduro non è un leader politico, ma un criminale comune. Qualunque argomento a favore di Maduro, o contro Guaidò, per me è solo.... spray urticante.

@Felice Assolutamente, l'Italia ha tanti problemi interni da risolvere, visto che cinque anni di governo PD che hanno messo una nazione in ginocchio, sono stati più dannosi di un virus. Creare polemiche con la Francia é inopportuno. Concordo con le precisazioni fatte da La Vendetta di Catilina su Guaidò, e con il commento di Stefano sul fatto che Maduro, malgrado fosse marxista, tra i due rappresenti il male minore. Detto questo, devono essere i venezuelani a scegliere da chi farsi governare, poi se una volta indette libere elezioni voteranno a maggioranza per Guaidò, peggio per loro. Evidentemente in Venezuela e più in generale in America Latina hanno lo stesso problema di noi in Europa, e cioè che non esistono valide alternative sia ai liberali che ai neocomunisti.

DOVERE DI CRONACA   Juan Guaidó, nuovo idolo bipartisan che tanto piace alla destra italiana (Salvini e Meloni, tanto per fare nomi), appartiene al partito di centro sinistra Voluntad Popular, affiliato all'Internazionale Socialista. Il partito - appena 14 seggi su 167 al Parlamento venezuelano - ha fatto clamore per aver eletto, nel 2015, i primi attivisti LGBT nella storia del Paese: Tamara Adrian e Rosmit Mantilla, gay il primo trans il secondo. Voluntad Popular è favorevole alla globalizzazione e alla società aperta multiculturale e multisessuale, tanto amata da Soros.  Nel 2002, inoltre, nel tentativo di colpo di Stato contro Chavez si distinse il fondatore del partito dell'auto proclamato presidente Guaidó, Leopoldo López.

          Director de diario panameño ve al gobierno de Nicaragua más antidemocrático - El Nuevo Diario      Cache   Translate Page      

La crisis sociopolítica que vive Nicaragua es vista con preocupación a nivel internacional por los actos de represión que ejerce el gobierno contra la población. Esa es la apreciación que tiene Jaime Aparicio, director del diario Metro Libre, de Panamá.

En declaraciones a El Nuevo Diario, Aparicio afirmó que el Gobierno de Nicaragua “cada día es más duro, más brutal, más ciego y más antidemocrático”.

Aparicio, quien lleva nueve años como director del medio de comunicación impreso, compartió que para los panameños, especialmente para los periodistas, la situación que vive Nicaragua es triste, sobre todo porque muchos conocen la historia y ven el reflejo de la dictadura somocista.

Añadió que para muchos panameños está presente que el expresidente Omar Torrijos respaldó al Frente Sandinista de Liberación Nacional (FSLN), el partido en el poder en Nicaragua.

“Hoy quienes gobiernan Nicaragua están haciendo lo mismo que ocurría en la época de Somoza y cuidado con mayor brutalidad”, expresó el comunicador.

Aparicio mostró preocupación por el encarcelamiento de periodistas y ciudadanos que participaron en protestas cívicas, sumado a la cantidad de nicas que han buscado exilio.

El director del diario panameño dijo que lo peor que le puede ocurrir a un pueblo es volver a las armas, a la guerra o a la violencia, que trae consigo muertes indiscriminadas.

Hizo un llamado a que las fuerzas democráticas se articulen dentro y fuera del país para que exista una presión internacional, “así como ocurrió cuando Violeta Barrios de Chamorro ganó y el Frente Sandinista reconoció su derrota”.

Afirmó que si se da otro proceso similar, todos aquellos que están involucrados en crímenes de lesa humanidad y robos al Estado nicaragüense, deberán enfrentar la justicia.

Manifestó que “Nicaragua tendrá que realizar elecciones tarde o temprano con el temor de un fraude” y que para ello el país tendrá que ver cuál fue la experiencia de Venezuela, para que no ocurra lo mismo y las fuerzas democráticas pueden enrumbar a Nicaragua, aunque se corran riesgos.

Se refirió también a la limitación de la libertad de expresión y de prensa, afirmando que “por más censura y controles que existan, las redes sociales se están convirtiendo en un medio paralelo para difundir historias y para decir la verdad; hay que acomodarse a esas realidades”.

Panamá a elecciones

Al hablar de renovaciones gubernamentales, cambios para sistemas políticos y haciendo semejanzas del gobierno nicaragüense con el de Panamá, Aparicio señaló que después de la visita del papa Francisco durante la Jornada Mundial de la Juventud, el país se verá expuesto a un proceso electoral en el cual siete candidatos participarán en la contienda.

“El panameño está a la expectativa frente al desgaste natural de un gobierno, frente a los problemas propios de un país, en teoría próspero, pero con limitaciones”, aseveró Aparicio.

La contienda electoral en Panamá será el próximo 30 de mayo.

En medio de los preparativos para la JMJ 2019, gran parte de la mitad del año 2018 se ocupó para los movimientos de los partidos políticos, de cara a las elecciones.

Aparicio mostró preocupación por el encarcelamiento de periodistas y ciudadanos que participaron en protestas cívicas, sumado a la cantidad de nicas que han buscado exilio. / Foto: Lester Arcia

Al igual que los nicaragüenses cuando hay procesos electorales, la gente en Panamá “demanda empleos con salarios permanentes que sustenten las necesidades diarias, es decir, que el costo de vida lo puedas pagar con lo que se recibe”, explicó Aparicio.

Manifestó, además, que “la gente espera que un cambio de gobierno haga que la economía interna se recupere, porque la economía externa está bien, pero el trabajador popular tiene complicaciones con sus salarios”.

A Panamá le va muy bien con la administración del canal, en los puertos y en las exportaciones, pero los ciudadanos deben vivir de dos o tres actividades, porque un solo empleo no da para cubrir los gastos.

Cuestionan Gastos de la JMJ

Según el director del diario Metro Libre, parte de la población canalera (una minoría) cuestionó durante varios meses los gastos que se dieron para la elevación de las dos tarimas centrales en las cuales se efectuaron los eventos oficiales del papa Francisco.

La tarima, ubicada en la llamada Cinta Costera, lugar donde se dio la ceremonia de apertura, y la del Metro Park, para el cierre de las actividades, rondaron los 12 millones de dólares.

“El valor de la alfombra que se colocó en el aeropuerto de Tocumen para recibir al papa tuvo un valor de 14 mil dólares, misma que fue instalada en la pista de la terminal 2 del aeropuerto”, reveló Aparicio, afirmando que el cuestionamiento se dio porque al Sumo Pontífice no le gustan los lujos.


          Detienen a 3 adultos y 2 menores salvadoreños por extorsión y otros delitos - El Nuevo Diario      Cache   Translate Page      

La Policía Nacional Civil (PNC) de El Salvador detuvo este sábado a tres adultos y dos adolescentes pandilleros por extorsión agravada y otros delitos, informó el cuerpo de seguridad.

La fuente señaló que por el delito de extorsión fueron arrestados los dos menores de edad y la adulta Adriana Beatriz Chacón, de 23 años, en la localidad de Cuscatancingo (norte), fronteriza con la capital.

Detalló que a los menores, quienes provienen del departamento de San Miguel (este) y supuestamente pertenecen a las pandillas, les fueron incautados 50 dólares en efectivo que "habían exigido" a una víctima.

Según las autoridades de seguridad salvadoreñas, las pandillas reclutan a menores de edad, algunos bajo amenaza de muerte, para labores de vigilancia en sus zonas de control, cobro de extorsiones y sicariato.

Añadió que José Neftalí González y David Alberto Sánchez fueron detenidos por cargos de tenencia ilegal de arma de fuego y resistencia al arresto, respectivamente, por lo que serán llevados ante los tribunales.

Según las autoridades de seguridad salvadoreñas, las pandillas reclutan a menores de edad, algunos bajo amenaza de muerte, para labores de vigilancia en sus zonas de control, cobro de extorsiones y sicariato.

Según las autoridades de seguridad salvadoreñas, las pandillas reclutan a menores de edad, algunos bajo amenaza de muerte, para labores de vigilancia en sus zonas de control, cobro de extorsiones y sicariato.

Según un sondeo de la Cid Gallup Latinoamérica, difundido a mediados de febrero del año 2017, el 79 % de la población está a favor de que los adolescentes que cometan delitos graves sean juzgados como mayores de edad.

          6 times Macron gave other leaders advice, while boasting an approval rating of… under 30%      Cache   Translate Page      
French President Emmanuel Macron is not shy about dishing out advice to his international counterparts but, with an approval rating at home hovering in the late 20s, is he really the person to be doling out instructions to others?

No matter the international crisis, Macron has been there to impart his wisdom, giving guidance and schooling to other world leaders on their domestic problems. When it comes to criticisms directed at him, however, it appears Macron is less receptive.

This week, after French anti-government Yellow Vest protesters met with top Italian officials who criticized his leadership (admittedly in undiplomatic terms), Macron instantly recalled France’s ambassador from Rome, the critiques having gotten under his skin.

Here’s a look at six times Macron was the one dispensing unsolicited advice.

1. Venezuela’s Maduro is ‘illegitimate’

Macron has been quick to denounce Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro as “illegitimate” and to throw his support behind opposition leader Juan Guaido.

As we’ve seen, though, expressions of doubt about his own legitimacy are shot down by Macron’s government as “outrageous” – despite the French president commanding a domestic approval rating of around 30 percent. In fact, his approval rating dipped as low as 18 percent in early December.

2. Lectures on ‘human rights’ in Egypt

On a recent visit to Cairo, Macron warned his Egyptian counterpart Abdel Fattah el-Sisi to do more to protect “human rights” and “individual dignity.” Meanwhile, back in France, anti-government protesters were being violently beaten on the streets, in scenes which Macron surely would have condemned had they taken place anywhere else.

It looks as though his lecture on human rights was all talk, anyway, considering that France still serves as Egypts top supplier of military and security equipment.

3. Wading into Japanese legal matters

Macron also chided Japan for the “too long and too hard” detention of Carlos Ghosn, the former Nissan chairman and French citizen who was detained there in November for allegedly underreporting his income and transferring personal losses to the company. If the tables were turned, it’s likely Macron would regard similar comments about decisions of the French justice system as foreign meddling.

Macron also confidently suggested a replacement for Ghosn in comments that irked Japan’s Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga, who told reporters that governments shouldn’t be getting involved.

4. ‘Timely’ decision to mark Armenian Genocide

In a move that angered Turkey, Macron on Wednesday declared April 24 a day for the commemoration in France of the Armenian genocide, saying that France was a country that “knows how to look history in the face.” While the genocide commemoration is not shocking in itself, given that many countries, including Russia, recognize the Armenian Genocide (which Turkey disputes), Ankara accused Macron of exploiting the issue for political gain.

Macron happened to be “afflicted by political problems in his own country and is trying to save the day by turning historical events into a political matter,” Turkish Presidential Spokesman Ibrahim Kalın noted.

5. Chastising Trump over Syria withdrawal

Macron slammed US President Donald Trump’s decision in December to withdraw troops from Syria, saying he “very deeply” regretted Trump’s decision. Macron said that, as allies, France and the US should “fight shoulder to shoulder” and that “an ally should be dependable.” Trump has not been reluctant to criticize Macron either, however, even tweeting about the French president’s dismally low approval rating.

6. ‘Arrogant’ advice fest in Africa

Macron also faced major criticism on a trip to Africa last year, during which he advised Algeria to stop focusing on its colonial past and mocked Burkina Faso’s president over the country’s energy problems – comments which his former presidential rival criticized as “arrogant” and “bordering on racism.”

On the same trip, Macron told a student that she should “applaud” French soldiers, said the continent’s problems were “civilizational”  – and told African women that they have too many children.

          What Does The Crisis In Venezuela Mean For LGBTQ People?      Cache   Translate Page      

Venezuela’s long-running political crisis appears to be reaching a critical point.

President Nicolás Maduro is still holding onto power, but there is growing international support to recognize Juan Guaidó – the leader of the legislature – who declared himself President on 23 January 2019.

Venezuela’s ongoing political discontent has been further fueled in recent months by skyrocketing hyperinflation, power cuts, and shortages of food and medicine. The BBC reports that over three million Venezuelans have emigrated from the country in recent years.

This crisis in Venezuela is affecting everyone in the country, but it’s worth remembering that the LGBTQ community in Venezuela is particularly vulnerable.

Homosexuality is not illegal – the last laws that could be used to persecute LGBTQ people were declared unconstitutional by the country’s Supreme Court in 1997. However there are no legal protections against discrimination based on sexuality.

But Venezuela is a very socially conservative country, and homophobia appears to be widely entrenched as a daily part of life.

I spoke with Luis – a young gay guy who left Venezuela to move to London.

We’re raised in a very macho culture.  If you’re a gay man and you seem to others to be a little camp, you could be in great danger. You could be harassed by other ‘manly’ men, and you could also get beaten-up for being too feminine.

Venezuelan artist and activist Daniel Arzola – who left Venezuela to live in Chile – confirms that his experience was similar.

The most common homophobic format used by Venezuelans is mockery.   Over the last 50 years, the media has been responsible for mocking LGBTQ people. In addition to this, the lack of sexual education creates a society that limits you to a ghetto, where you’re criticized if you express affection in public or act in any way outside of the sexist norm.

As Venezuela’s economy continues to implode, and tensions rise, it’s predictable that the most vulnerable people in society are most at risk.

          Iglesia alienta a participar en “Eucaristía por Venezuela” este 10 de febrero [VIDEO]      Cache   Translate Page      
CARACAS, 09 Feb. 19 (ACI Prensa).- La Conferencia Episcopal de Venezuela (CEV) alentó a los fieles de todo el país a participar en la “Eucaristía por Venezuela” este 10 de febrero, para pedir por la paz, la reconciliación, la libertad y la salud.

En un video mensaje publicado el 8 de febrero, los obispos venezolanos señalaron que “desde nuestra misión de creyentes queremos incentivar la oración y una espiritualidad encarnada en las realidades que sufre el pueblo”.

“Uno de los signos fundamentales de este momento es la Eucaristía, como sacrificio y don de Dios en Jesucristo, por lo que invitamos a todo el pueblo para que participemos en la Eucaristía del domingo 10 de febrero, antesala de la Jornada Mundial por los Enfermos”.

La CEV animó además a “orar en todos los templos, en nuestras casas y comunidades, pidiéndole al Señor nos conceda la paz, la reconciliación, la libertad y la salud espiritual y corporal, y busquemos, con creatividad, gestos de fraternidad y solidaridad en las diferentes comunidades”.

Venezuela's Maduro spurns U.S. aid, rival warns military not to block itA day after the aid convoy arrived in the border city of Cucuta, President Nicolas Maduro ridiculed the United States for offering small amounts of assistance while maintaining sanctions that block some $10 billion of offshore assets and revenue. Rival Juan Guaido, who is recognized by dozens of countries as Venezuela's legitimate leader, warned military officers against blocking the arrival of aid amid spiraling disease and malnutrition brought on by a hyperinflationary collapse. "Take all that humanitarian aid and give it to the people of Cucuta, where there is a lot of need," Maduro said in a news conference.

          Companhia de petróleo da Venezuela transfere conta para banco russo para evitar sanções, dizem fontes      Cache   Translate Page      

CARACAS E CIDADE DO MÉXICO - A estatal Petróleos de Venezuela (PDVSA) instruiu os presidentes das suas joint ventures para que, daqui por diante, recebam o dinheiro das exportações de petróleo em uma nova conta bancária na instituição russa Gazprombank a fim de contornar as sanções impostas pelos Estados Unidos, de acordo com um documento ao qual a Reuters teve acesso no sábado e a duas fontes familiarizadas com o assunto.

As empresas nas quais a PDVSA atua na Faixa do Orinoco, em parceria com as companhias petrolíferas como a Chevron, a francesa Total e Equinor Noruega, devem notificar os seus clientes que os pagamentos em dólares ou euros devem ser feitos na conta bancária em Moscou, indica uma carta assinada pelo vice-presidente de Finanças da PDVSA, Fernando de Quintal, datada de 8 de fevereiro. Venezuela

Após sanções financeiras impostas em janeiro pelo governo americano à Venezuela, os parceiros estrangeiros devem ainda confirmar formalmente à PDVSA que continuarão participando dos projetos, disseram fontes do setor de petróleo.

As medidas impostas pelo governo dos EUA deixaram dezenas de navios de transporte de óleo cru parados dentro e fora de águas venezuelanas. E estão levando também a PDVSA a parar a produção e aperfeiçoamento de petróleo no projeto Petrocedeño, onde Equinor e Total participam, devido à falta de diluentes importados dos Estados Unidos, contaram duas outras fontes familiarizadas com a decisão.

Com as sanções impostas por Washington, além de ficarem proibidas de comprar o petróleo venezuelano, as empresas americanas também estão impedidas de exportar para o país sul-americano o nafta do qual a PDVSA precisa para diluir o óleo pesado de suas reservas, as maiores do mundo. Antes disso, 40% das exportações da PDVSA, ou 500 mil barris por dia, seguiam para os Estados Unidos.

A PDVSA não respondeu imediatamente a uma solicitação de informações.

Eso, ¿dónde se van a meter? Por Danilo Arbilla Preguntó Nicolás Maduro: “¿irme para dónde?”. Lo mismo se pregunta todo el mundo y particularmente quienes buscan una solución a la situación venezolana: ¿dónde meterlo? ¿A dónde enviarlo? Este es el gran dilema, buscarle una “salida” a Maduro. Darle seguridad. En pocas palabras, garantizarle que no será juzgado por todo lo que le ha hecho a Venezuela y a los venezolanos. Y no solo se trata de Maduro, seguramente también habrá que darles “seguridades” a Diosdado Cabello y a unos cuantos más, incluyendo no pocos generales. Si se revisa el mapa no hay muchos rincones “dónde”. Normalmente los izquierdistas latinoamericanos no eligen exiliarse en Cuba, ni hoy el régimen castrista está en condiciones de dar cobijo a tanta gente. Rusia, China, Turquía e Irán son aliados, pero en otro plano y estrategia. Los exilios más cotizados, según los antecedentes, son Europa, particularmente los países que han reconocido a Guaidó, y los EE.UU., al que no le hacen asco cuando tienen la chance de irse para allá. Pero en estos momentos parece difícil que en esos destinos haya lugares disponibles para Maduro y sus secuaces. En consecuencia, solo quedan algunos países amigos y aliados de las Américas. Y en ese plano el escenario es bien curioso, porque para cualquiera de los países “amigos” sería un problema interno recibir este contingente de “millonarios” venezolanos con cuentas bloqueadas. Empecemos por México: ¿se animará AMLO? Una cosa es jugar a dos puntas y “posar”, y otra es que se le venga a vivir tanta gente entre la cual hay muchos narcotraficantes. ¿Y para qué otros más? Uruguay, el otro “mediador”, es muy pequeño para tanto chavista. El estalinista Partido Comunista uruguayo, que “maneja” al Frente Amplio (FA), coalición de izquierda que gobierno al país, estaría dispuesto, pero no alcanza. Es difícil que el presidente Tabaré Vázquez y el ex José “Pepe” Mujica, que han apadrinado a Maduro, arriesguen tanto. En estos días la imagen de Vázquez ha quedado algo maltrecha por algunos presuntos “negocios” familiares con Venezuela, y en igual sentido pasa con sectores del MPP (grupo de Mujica), también “vinculados” a Venezuela. Pero no es solo eso: a fines de este año hay elecciones y el FA no las tiene todas consigo, y el apoyo a la dictadura de Maduro le está afectando. Al FA como a Maduro les convendría ganar tiempo y que prospere “la mediación”. ¿Nicaragua? La dupla dictatorial Ortega-Murillo sigue empeñada en reprimir a los nicaragüenses y no parece que quiera hacer mucho más olas. Lo que está pasando en Venezuela ha beneficiado al matrimonio por cuanto ha desviado la atención del mundo, el que de todas formas no debería descuidarse dado que lo de Nicaragua es tan grave como lo de la dictadura chavista. Lo mismo le pasa a Evo Morales en Bolivia. Está quietito. No dice ni una palabra contra Bolsonaro, por ejemplo. Además, hablar de abrirles las puertas a los “chavistas”, en estos momentos en que está tramando quedarse por un cuarto periodo más en el gobierno, no le parece oportuno. Para qué sumar noticias “raras” a las de las continuas renuncias de jueces y juezas del Tribunal Supremo Electoral que se niegan a respaldarlo en su nuevo intento para violar la Constitución. Evo está en lo mismo que Ortega, pero más prolijo. Después está el caso de Argentina. Hoy ni pensarlo, pero los argentinos pueden resultar sorprendentes. Al igual que en Uruguay, en octubre próximo tiene elecciones presidenciales y Cristina Kirchner, con numerosos juicios por corrupción en su contra, está entre los favoritos. Es más, a principios de semana hubo en Buenos Aires una manifestación de organizaciones argentinas a favor de Maduro. Entre los organizadores estuvo Juan Grabois, amigo del Papa Francisco, de quien se dice que es su representante oficioso en Argentina y a través de quien envía regalitos –rosarios y estampitas– a agitadores kirchneristas. La manifestación no fue grande, es cierto. No tuvo mucho eco el llamado que Grabois hizo a través de las redes. La respuesta de estas, en cambio, fue muy negativa. Un ejemplo: “Juan Grabois, vocero de la paz y el amor que pregona el Papa, marcha a favor del que mata gente inocente, a balazos y hambre. Linda gente la de Francisco”. Una expresión elocuente de cuál fue el tono de la reacción popular, la que señala, además, una alternativa para la preocupación del principio: ¿dónde meter a Maduro y los chavistas? ¿Por qué no el Vaticano? El Papa Francisco ha sido y es quien más ha ayudado a Maduro a “ganar tiempo”. A través del “diálogo pacífico” (estilo Maduro), por supuesto.

Humanitario Benjamín Fernández Bogado La grave crisis de Venezuela pone a prueba varios conceptos, entre ellos el humanitario. Un país inmensamente rico en recursos petroleros pasa hambre y necesidad por obra y gracia de un gobierno que decidió enfrentar a la mayoría de ese pueblo. Este tiene que subsistir a como pueda y la “gran conspiración internacional” ahora tiene rostro de solidaridad ante los momentos duros que les toca vivir. La distribución de alimentos pondrá a prueba cuánto puede aún el gobierno de Maduro afirmar su respaldo popular o si deberá usar las fuerzas armadas en contra de los hambrientos para acabar el primer “golpe de Estado” humanitario que tiene lugar en América Latina. Guaidó ha tocado las teclas correctas. Su país hoy tiene que sobrevivir a las necesidades más extremas y en la medida que estas subían en demanda, el gobierno de Maduro distribuía recursos para armarse y reprimir. La estrategia cubana ha buscado replicarse en un país al que tomó como rehén para administrar todo su aparato represivo, de espionaje y de muerte. Cuando se cuente la historia de los años del chavismo claramente muchos de sus responsables culparán de todo lo que aconteció al apoyo y tutelaje colonial que aplicó la isla de los Castro en un país entregado por completo a las apetencias de poder por sobre las miserias de su pueblo. A los cubanos les funcionó mientras la guerra fría les permitió con la alianza soviética convertir a EE.UU. en la razón de sus represiones contra el pueblo. Sin embargo en Venezuela el enemigo es el hambre y los millones que desde adentro y afuera presionan para el retorno a la libertad y la democracia. La táctica cubana no funcionará esta vez y en ellos descargarán las culpas los capitostes del régimen si sobreviven a la furia que se viene. La comunidad internacional ha entendido mayoritariamente que excluir al gobierno de Maduro sacándole legitimidad sin apoyar un cambio real con gestos y actitudes claramente orientados hacia el pueblo no era sostenible en el tiempo. Se han gastado años en discusiones bizantinas mientras el hambreado pueblo de Venezuela tenía que emigrar por millones. Ya no les creen a los protagonistas internacionales de la política y hoy desconfían severamente del rol del papa Francisco en conflictos de este tipo. Su última visita a Panamá ha quedado por completo opacada por el trasfondo de la crisis de Venezuela ante la que no sabe cómo actuar debido a su actitud ambivalente durante todo el conflicto. Es probable que la diplomacia vaticana se reduzca en esta oportunidad a decirle por lo bajo a Maduro que no hay manera de continuar con la farsa. Impedir el ingreso de alimentos con represión radicalizará las posturas al interior del propio gobierno chavista, pero fortalecerá a Guaidó que juega con grandes ventajas en esta que parece ser la última pulseada por la libertad de su pueblo. Ha ofrecido gestos humanitarios a los militares porque es en terreno práctico donde debe socavar los cimientos de un régimen inconstitucional y represivo. El humanitarismo ante la política o la política del humanitarismo para cambiar define con claridad este momento singular de los venezolanos que vira por completo la ecuación del poder que rigió por mucho tiempo este tipo de conflictos.

Venezuela debe ir a comicios para elegir nuevo presidente La crítica situación de Venezuela, que sobrepasa largamente lo político, pues se traduce en un grave pro­blema humanitario, necesariamente requiere una solución política: nuevas elec­ciones para reemplazar al régimen ilegítimo de Nicolás Maduro. Pero como el autócrata no quiere renunciar al poder se plantea ahora otra situación para el país caribeño, que ojalá no sig­nifique el derramamiento de más sangre de la que ya ha ocasionado este gobierno. Recientemente, la Unión Europea (UE), que representa al grupo de países occidentales de mayor prestigio democrático, emplazó al régi­men venezolano a que llame a elecciones demo­cráticas para consagrar a las nuevas autorida­des del país. Pero Maduro se negó y entonces ahora las principales potencias de Europa reco­nocieron como presidente de Venezuela al titu­lar de la Asamblea Nacional, el diputado Juan Guaidó, que recientemente se proclamó como presidente interino hasta que haya nuevas elec­ciones. Lo cierto es que la mayoría de los países democráticos ha manifestado desconocer el nuevo mandato de Maduro, luego de reasumir el 10 de enero, como resultado de una farsa elec­toral no aceptada por las democracias. Enton­ces, el panorama ya está claro: el Presidente reconocido de Venezuela es Juan Guaidó, que interina el mandato hasta los comicios que se deben realizar en un breve plazo. Pero como esta opción implica dejar el poder, el chavismo no lo acepta, lo que hace muy necesa­ria una fuerte presión internacional para que los sostenedores de Maduro entren en razón, reconozcan su falta de legitimidad democrática y acepten ir a las urnas, como corresponde. El Grupo de Lima, del que forma parte el Para­guay, ha sido particularmente claro en su pos­tura sobre el panorama en Venezuela. En su última declaración emitida luego de la reunión de emergencia llevada a cabo en Ottawa señaló su gran preocupación por la grave situación humanitaria que vive ahora ese país y llamó a las Fuerzas Armadas venezolanas a que acep­ten a Juan Guaidó como presidente encargado y le manifiesten su lealtad como mandatario. Este grupo de países latinoamericanos, aparte de condenar con dureza las graves violaciones a los derechos humanos por parte de Maduro, solicitó a la comunidad internacional que le aplique sanciones, para que el régimen venezo­lano no pueda hacer transacciones financieras ni comerciales con otros países del mundo, y pueda así aceptar llamar a comicios. Mientras las democracias del mundo presio­nan por una salida pacífica yendo a elecciones, solo apoyan a Maduro sus aliados, como Cuba, Rusia, China, Bolivia, Corea del Norte, países sobre cuyo fervor por la democracia no hace falta comentar. Para entender mejor la situación de Venezuela no basta con saber que desde el 10 de enero Maduro ya no es el presidente, porque las elec­ciones de mayo pasado en que fue “reelecto” fueron ilegítimas al no cumplir las normas elec­torales, sino que la asunción del diputado Juan Guaidó como presidente interino corresponde a las disposiciones de la Constitución que rige en ese país. Dicha Carta Magna, en su artículo 233, prevé que ante la “falta absoluta de presidente electo”, se procederá a una nueva elección universal, directa y secreta dentro de los 30 días siguien­tes. Y mientras se elige y toma posesión el nuevo mandatario, se encargará de la Presidencia de la República el presidente de la Asamblea Nacional. De ahí procede la legitimidad de Juan Guaidó, que preside la Asamblea Nacional, como presi­dente actual de la República de Venezuela. Y es por ello que las democracias del mundo lo reco­nocen ahora como el primer mandatario legí­timo de ese país y le ofrecen su ayuda. Debido a lo dispuesto en el Art. 233 de la Cons­titución de Venezuela, que obliga a ir a eleccio­nes en 30 días, es que ahora se espera la con­vocatoria de los comicios para la elección del nuevo mandatario. Teniendo en cuenta todos esos elementos de orden legal, y debido a la necesidad de una solu­ción al drama venezolano, lo único que se puede pedir ahora es que se cumpla sin retaceos la Constitución de ese país y los venezolanos con­curran a las urnas para elegir al nuevo y legí­timo presidente de la República.
           Comentario en Usurpadores por jotaefeb       Cache   Translate Page      
¡No es no! por Ismael Cala Siempre he sido un apasionado de la escucha. Las reflexiones que expuse en el libro “El poder de escuchar” demuestran que los seres humanos aún estamos lejos de apreciar el valor de escuchar y de respetar las ideas de los demás. La habilidad para oír con atención, sentimiento y discernimiento crítico es una capacidad mágica y la base de todas las relaciones efectivas, tanto personales como sociales o políticas. Hoy es fácil hallar a líderes políticos que no escuchan. Sobresalen algunos a quienes los ciudadanos han dicho claramente “no”, pero insisten en desconocer la realidad. Las consecuencias de sus actos irracionales podrían ser devastadoras porque no entienden que, ¡no es no! A casi todos nos cuesta decir “no”, por la dificultad de cambiar mentalidades, desaprender y admitir el derecho propio a ser como queremos, sin imposiciones externas. El gran escritor colombiano Gabriel García Márquez afirmaba: “Lo más importante que aprendí después de los 40 años fue a decir no cuando es no”. Una vez lo entendemos, nos corresponde convencer a otros de que respeten nuestras decisiones. Los ejemplos negativos sobran. Nicolás Maduro, al que Venezuela dijo “no” al elegir una Asamblea Nacional de mayoría opositora, viola las leyes para desconocerla. El gobierno de Cuba, al que millones han dicho “no” al “votar con los pies” y huir, ahora quiere aprobar una nueva Constitución continuista. Evo Morales, que perdió el referéndum para reelegirse, insiste en desoír el clamor popular de los bolivianos. El presidente Donald Trump, que no consigue fondos para levantar el muro, ahora amenaza con buscarlos a través de fórmulas cuestionables. No saber escuchar o simular sordera complica todas las tragedias que hoy padece la humanidad. Los gobernantes se deben supuestamente a la ciudadanía, pero no la respetan. En vez de dar el ejemplo, contribuyen a agravar los tres graves problemas que azotan al mundo: el egoísmo, la apatía y la avaricia. Como dice “El Libro de Santiago”: “Todos ustedes deben estar listos para escuchar; en cambio deben ser lentos para hablar y para enojarse (…) Acepten humildemente el mensaje que ha sido sembrado; pues ese mensaje tiene poder para salvarlos. Pero no basta con oír el mensaje; hay que ponerlo en práctica…”.

          Venezuela: coronel del Ejército desconoció a Maduro y pidió ingreso de ayuda humanitaria      Cache   Translate Page      

Rubén Paz Jiménez, militar que pidió por la ayuda humanitaria en Venezuela

Un coronel de Venezuela reconoció a Juan Guaidó como presidente, pidió permitir el ingreso de la ayuda humanitaria y dijo que el 90% de los militares está inconforme con Nicolás Maduro.

 

"Yo, coronel activo del Ejército, Rubén Paz Jiménez, haciendo uso de un derecho constitucional, el día 23 de enero marché uniformado junto al pueblo venezolano para desconocer a Maduro como presidente y reconocer al presidente de la Asamblea Nacional, Juan Guaidó, como presidente interino y comandante en jefe de las Fuerzas Armadas Nacionales", dice el militar en un video.

 

"El 90% de las Fuerzas Armadas estamos en descontento, estamos siendo utilizados para mantenerlos a ellos (chavismo) en el poder. Seamos valientes, no tengamos miedo", prosigue el militar.

"Pido a todos los integrantes de las Fuerzas Armadas permitan entrar la ayuda humanitaria, son muchas las vidas qye podemos salvar", continuó Paz Jiménez, quien es médico.

 

"Me cansé de callar", dice agregado militar venezolano que rompió con Maduro.

 

Venezuela enfrenta uns crisis sin precedentes con dos personas asumiéndose como presidentes: Nicolás Maduro y Juan Guaidó. Este último tiene el respaldo de la mayoría de América y Europa.

          Venezuela: la inflación de enero fue de casi 200% y creció un 2.688.000% interanual      Cache   Translate Page      

Inflación en Venezuela

La inflación en Venezuela se ubicó en 191.6% en enero, según datos de la comisión de Finanzas de la Asamblea Nacional (AN, Parlamento) venezolana, que afirmó que la espiral inflacionaria que vive el país desde hace dos años se aceleró el último mes.

 

"Para el mes de enero tenemos una variación de 191,6%", dijo en una rueda de prensa el diputado Ángel Alvarado, que ubicó en 3,5% el alza diaria de los precios en el país petrolero.

 

La Cámara, controlada por el antichavismo, agregó algo que ya venían anticipando: la inflación interanual superó los 2 millones.

 

Entre enero de 2018 y 2019, la cifra se ubicó en 2.688.670% mientras que el total del indicador en 2018 fue de 1.698.844,2%.

 

Alvarado señaló que en lo que va de año ha habido una "aceleración de más de 50 puntos respecto al último trimestre" del 2018 en cuanto a la variación mensual del índice de precios al consumidor.

 

Esto obedece a la variación del tipo de cambio, que solo en enero se devaluó un 194%, explicó el diputado, citado por la agencia de noticias EFE.

 

Además, señaló que la liquidez monetaria aumentó un 75% en el primer mes del año y alertó que la tensión política que hay entre el Ejecutivo y el Legislativo -que no se reconocen mutuamente- está generando "una gran perturbación" en los agentes económicos y agita índices como el de la inflación.

 

Los alimentos y las bebidas sin alcohol aumentaron un 262% en enero, en tanto que los de vivienda subieron 202% y transporte se incrementó en 451%.

 

La canasta básica alimentaria, que según la Constitución debe ser cubierta por el salario mínimo, alcanzó el mes pasado los 163 dólares mientras que el ingreso básico legal es de unos 6 dólares por mes.

 

"El salario mínimo solo compra el 3,68% (de la canasta) esa es una buena medida del nivel de miseria en que vive el pueblo venezolano", agregó el legislador.

          Crawling to the Americans       Cache   Translate Page      

The May Government’s recognition of the American lackey, Juan Guaidó, as ‘interim president’ of Venezuela is the latest episode in what some British politicians still shamefully call the “special relationship” with the USA. The weakness of the British Government makes this meaningless gesture, which was given in the hope of future reward from the Trump administration, pointless. But crawling to the Americans comes as second nature to those sections of the ruling class who believe that their global interests are best preserved through the might of US imperialism.
Though the Trump administration has widened existing divisions within America’s ruling circles over immigration and minority rights, the entire American ruling class wants to establish US hegemony over the world. What divides them is how to achieve it.
Democrat leaders still believe in the ‘new world order’ although they now prefer to call it ‘globalisation’. Trump, on the other hand, represents circles who want to cut back US military expenditure in Europe and north-east Asia so that they can concentrate on controlling the global energy market by taking over the entire Middle East and restoring US imperialism’s hegemony over south and central America. This is why they’re itching to get their greedy hands on Venezuela's vast oil reserves, the biggest in the world.
When it suits them American, British and Franco-German imperialists will bang the drum of “human rights”. So reading from the American script the Foreign Secretary, Jeremy Hunt, says that: “The people of Venezuela have suffered enough. It is time for a new start, with free and fair elections in accordance with international democratic standards. The oppression of the illegitimate, kleptocratic Maduro regime must end. Those who continue to violate the human rights of ordinary Venezuelans under an illegitimate regime will be called to account. The Venezuelan people deserve a better future.”
The usual lies. But few are taken in these days. Attempts to build another “international coalition” to justify American military intervention and “regime change” have failed at the United Nations and the Organisation of American States. Ten members of the European Union have refused to endorse Juan Guaidó’s empty claim and Turkey has broken ranks with NATO to back the elected Maduro government that is also supported by Russia, People’s China, India, Cuba and Democratic Korea, as well as most of the Third World.
Those in favour of imperialist aggression are the most aggressive and greedy sections of the capitalist and landowning class. They looted and enslaved Africa and Asia in the 19th century, killing millions on their way. They are the people who sent millions to their deaths in two world wars to preserve and increase their fortunes.
They started the Korean War and the American interventions in Indo-China during the Cold War. These are the people who brought death and destruction in the name of “regime change” in Yugoslavia, Iraq and Libya. They are the ones behind the sectarian gunmen who tried the same in Syria.
They are the kind who live the life of Roman Emperors in their grand houses whilst workers slave in their factories for pennies and die broken and destitute in the slums of the great cities of the imperialist heartlands. Now they want to push the clock back in Venezuela.
The governance of Venezuela is a matter for the Venezuelan people alone to determine. They’re going to fight to defend their revolution, We must stand by them and the legitimate government of the Bolivarian republic.

Reporter’s Diary from Venezuela
This is the personal view of the correspondent on today’s life of Caracas.
Translated by Scott

Day one…
Our Air France flight was grounded in Paris for 5 hours; no one wants to land in Venezuela in the middle of the night, due to the “dangerous criminal situation.” The airliner is half empty, the passengers, judging by nervous conversations, are only Venezuelans. A taxi driver, while leaving the airport, locks the doors, and sweetly warns that after dark, bandits scatter spikes on the roads and rob the stranded cars. “Oh, don’t worry, Amigo, I have an old car. They are not interested in old, cars.” That’s where you understand why Caracas is ranked first in the ranking of the most dangerous cities in the world. It’s too late for supper, but I at least want to exchange my US dollars for Venezuelan bolivars. I ask my cab driver. He violently shakes his head: “No, no, no. I do not mess with such things, it’s illegal!” “Whatever,” I laugh at him. “Tomorrow, someone will take the dollars, maybe even with my hands torn off.” I was wrong…
The following morning, no one at the hotel wants to look at my dollars. The hotel employee tells me to go to one of the official “exchange stores” but honestly adds: “only Americans, or complete jerks go there.”
In Venezuela, the official dollar exchange rate is 200 bolivars, and the “black market” exchange rate is 2,715. And if you exchange your currency in a bank, then according to this calculation, a bottle of ordinary water will cost 330 rubles, and a modest lunch in an inexpensive cafe—7,000 rubles per person. Judging by the stories on the Internet, in Venezuelan people should simply kill each other for dollars, but this is not the case. There is also other things different from perception. On western news, it is shown that demonstrators fight with police daily, tens killed, hundreds wounded, the sea of blood. But in Caracas, all is quiet. In an afternoon, people are sitting in cafes and idly sipping rum with ice, while maintenance crews sweep the streets. It turns out that the world ‘s leading TV new sources (including CNN and the BBC) show some fantasy film about Venezuela. “Demonstrations?” yawns Alejandro, a street vendor selling corn. “Well, Saturday there will be one, sort of. On one end of the city will be a rally of opposition supporters, and on the other, Maduro supporters. The police keep them separate to prevent fights.” Amazing. You browse the Internet, you turn on the TV, and you see the revolution, the people dying on streets to overthrow the “evil dictator Maduro.” And you come here, and nobody cares.
Then it got even better. Never in my life have I had so many adventures while trying to exchange one currency for another. The country has a problem with cash money, long queues waiting for the ATM, and even the street dealers of “currency” have no “efectivo,” as they call cash. I wander inside a jewelry store and ask if they want some “green.” The answer is “No.” Everyone acts like law-abiding citizens. I am told that police recently started arresting people for private exchange, that’s why people don’t want to associate. One owner of the jewelry store almost agrees. “What do you have? Dollars? No, I won’t take that.” “Why now?” “I take only the Euros …dollar, man, is the currency of the aggressor, they try to tell us how to live!”
Damn it! I have money in my pocket, and I can’t even buy lunch! Finally, a certain woman, nursing a baby in a workplace, very reluctantly agrees to exchange 2,200 bolivars for a “buck.” I want to curse her out, but I have to live somehow. Bolivars seem like a beautiful, unattainable currency, which hides all the benefits of the world, that’s why they are so hard to get. I’m nodding in agreement. The woman calls somewhere, and asks to wait. After 15 minutes she tells me that “there is a problem.” Of course, money is not to be found. Her man couldn’t withdraw them from the ATM, everywhere the ATMs are on a strict daily rate. “President Maduro is fighting for the strengthening of the national currency,” explained the nursing mother. “We all use our cards to pay for everything.” I don’t know how it works, but yesterday an exchange rate was 3,200 bolívars for 1 dollar, and today the “bucks” fell to 2,700. I have started to realize that in the very next few days I’ll starve to death with dollars in my pocket. A unique fate, perhaps, that has never happen in history.
In the next kiosk cash for gold place I am offered a plastic debit card loaded with local money, and then I would try my luck withdrawing bills from neighboring ATMs. “Or, maybe not, if you’re not lucky.” Well, of course. By the way, an attempt to buy a SIM card for the phone also fails. They don’t sell them to foreigners, you need a Venezuelan ID card. Yes, and I have nothing to pay for it. The feeling is that the dollar is a gift that no one wants. Sadly, I walk by stores. People come out of there with packages of eggs, bread, packs of butter. The range is not like in Moscow, of course, but again, if you believe the news on TV, Venezuela is suffering from a terrible famine, supermarkets are empty, and people are fighting each other for food. Nothing like that. There are queues, but not kilometers long. In general, television stations in the United States and Europe (and ours too) created their own Venezuela, drawn like a terrible cartoon. I walk into a cafe at random. “Will you accept dollars for lunch?” I ask hopelessly. “Yes, at the rate of “black market” they whispered to me. “But the change will also be in dollars…sorry, no bolivars at all…we’ve been hunting for them ourselves for weeks.”
My first day in Venezuela is over. How unusual. I’ve been here for 24 hours, and I’ve not held a Bolivian bill in my hand. Oh, but there will be more…

Day two…
60 liters of gasoline here cost five cents, and a basket of basic food products — 50 rubles (about 90 cents).
“The gas station,” my driver reaches into his purse and takes out a banknote of 2 Bolivar. The exchange rate of the Venezuelan currency changes every day, and today it is 2 580 bolivars per one dollar. In Russian money, that is 10 cents. “We must now fill a full tank,” says the taxi driver. 60 liters of gasoline cost 1 bolívar, but we give the 2 bolivars bill, because there is no 1 bolivar bill.  I can’t believe that is a full tank of fuel costs FIVE CENTS? “And how much can you even fill at this price?” “Once a day for every citizen. And it’s enough for me.” All the way to the center city, the driver scolds President Maduro, and tells me how much he loves America, and how it will be good when the “guy with mustache” is finally overthrow by the Americans. I start to think that I don’t feel sorry for Maduro at all. He really corrupted en entire country with such generous handouts. And they are willingly take, but no one says “thank you,” just that they want more and more.
On the street there is a long line into a “social supermarket,” a place you can buy 400 types of goods at the solid low prices. These shops were established by the late President Hugo Chavez “to fight inflation and protect the poor.” The stores are funded by the Venezuelan government. The buyer comes with a passport, gets a number, and waits in line until they are allowed to enter and buy a certain set of products. The selection isn’t very impressive, only the essentials: chicken, bananas, pineapples, sausages, milk. A box of these food items costs of equivalent of 50 rubles. CNN and the BBC show videos of Venezuelans wrapped in rolls of toilet paper and sadly wandering across the border with Colombia. The toilet paper is found in absolutely every store, and without any problems. I am once again simply amazed: Western TV news is something from Hollywood, they are not reporting but making fantasy blockbusters. On the BBC website I read that hungry Venezuelan children after school go to take a look at the street vendors cooking meat. I’ve been all over the town. Restaurants, cafes, eateries, during the lunch hour are crowded, and people look well-dressed. The mass hunger, the Western media paints for us, doesn’t exist in reality.
I take a few pictures inside the supermarket, and I am immediately approached by the workers or “Maduro followers.” “It’s forbidden to take pictures here.” “Is this a military facility?” “Leave or we’ll call the police.” “Listen, everywhere on TV they tell us that there is hunger in Venezuela. I want to prove that the reality is different.” “We are not interested, we just work here: leave immediately!” I started to understand perfectly well why Nicolas Maduro lost the information war. Hugo Chavez was often praised even in private conversations, but even Chavez supporters find little positive to say about Maduro.  When people protested against Hugo’s endless nominations as the head of state, he used to meet them with the open arms, smiling and saying : “Guys, what’s the problem? I’m your President, I love you, let’s sit down and talk!” Maduro doesn’t have this image of being one of the guys. He is not able to communicate with the public, and his assistants, like the employees of the social store, can only push and ban and threaten with the police.
On the streets, provincial farmers sell fruits and vegetables: mango, tomatoes, cucumbers. All about the same price of 25 rubles per kilogram. Here, a dozen eggs from street vendors is 4,800 bolivars or about 130 rubles, and that is not cheap. During the peak of oil prices, when a barrel of oil was sold for $150, Venezuela lived on the principle of a rich fool. To develop domestic production? No, what is that nonsense?  We can buy every triviality abroad. Even the managers of the oil production weren’t local, they hired specialists from Europe, and paid them a lot of money. Food imports into the country reached 95 percent. And now the situation is not too different. When I order my meal in a cafe (incidentally, still paying in dollars, all attempts to change dollars to bolivars failed), I get excellent pork. “Where is it from?” “From Colombia.” “And chicken?” “From Brazil, that’s why it’s so expensive.” Even flour for bread comes from neighboring Guyana. Chavez and his successor Maduro wanted to be “people’s presidents,” handing out money left and right. But then oil prices collapsed, food shortages began, and people rebelled. People demand as before: cheap food in supermarkets, gasoline for nothing, and they don’t want to hear anything more or less.
“Chavez was a great guy!” says a fan of the former president, 75-year-old Raul Romero, dressed in a red “chavist” shirt. “Maduro is nothing like him! There is speculators on the streets, he does nothing. In his time, Chavez arrested the dealers raising food  prices, closed their shops, confiscated land from landowners, and gave it to the people. We need a firm hand, a real dictatorship!”
In the TV world, Maduro is portrayed as a dictator and executioner, although in Venezuela, he is openly scolded for being meek; they draw cartoon of him, and insult him as much as they can. But who cares about the truth? Much more colorful to show the suffering for the toilet paper.
Day three…
“I got robbed by a COP for my phone. I’m talking on the cell phone outside, he walks over to me, pokes in my side with his gun. “Give me your mobile.”I don’t understand immediately, and automatically continue the conversation. He cocks his gun, and says, “Kill.” I give him my phone. It’s still good, I love being robbed by cops. They are not bandits from the “Barrios,” the poor neighborhoods in the mountains, who can shoot you first and then rummage your corpse’s pockets. I’m lucky, I’ve lived in Venezuela for 27 years and this was the first time I was “hop-stopped.” A lot of people get robbed every year.
I am talking to Mikhail, a citizen of Russia living in Venezuela since the beginning of the nineties. He helps me move around Caracas and instructs me on how to visit the local slums.
“You don’t have protection? Oh, who would doubt that. Then leave your watch, phone, and camera at the hotel. Take some money for a taxi, you also have to have some cash in case you get ambushed, otherwise they might get offended and kill you. Sometimes, people get shot in an arm and a leg, that survivable.”
After such a nice story, I still go to the “Barrios.” It is there that the supporters of President Nicolas Maduro mainly live. According to CNN and BBC, impoverished people in Venezuela are revolting against the government. Nothing can be further from the truth; it’s a wealthy middle class that goes to demonstrate. Maduro is applauded in poor neighborhoods, because the President gives their residents free food sets enough for a month and gives free (!) apartments. Formally, they belong to the state, but people live in them for generations.
“I will cut a throat for the President,” a heavily-tattooed man smiles menacingly, and introduces himself as Emilio. “Who else would give me food and a ‘roof ‘ for free? He is our father and benefactor.” Maduro deliberately does not touch such people, which is why crime in Caracas gushes over the edge. I am advised not to stop on the street to look at anything, but just to keep going, otherwise bandits will have time to look closely at me. That’s why they have constant robberies on the streets, plus the police and the national guard can easily take away your favorite things. No one can be happy about all these. “I love Russians,” told me the businessman Carlos while conversing over coffee near the Plaza de Bolivar. “But you’d better send Maduro economic advisers. Teach him a lesson! He doesn’t know anything about economy. He has one recipe for everything, to give more money to the poor, more free apartments, free food, free gasoline, to build a full communism here. But with this, sorry, any state would collapse.”
The opposition rally in the Western part of Caracas is huge, at least 100 thousand people gathered. The protesters are friendly to me, Russia here is respected. It is not considered an enemy. Zero aggression at all… and then I  wonder about what I see on CNN, videos of the opposition being rolled into a pancake by tanks. The police keep the neutrality, it disappears from the streets, to not give a cause to provocateurs. People are happily waving flying in the sky military helicopter. Many-in t-shirts with the American flag, a man passes by, holding a hand-written poster with the altered slogan of Donald Trump -“Make Venezuela great again.” “Do you love the U.S.?” “Yes, adore it!” “I remember you already had a pro-American President in 1993, Carlos Andrés Pérez. He sharply raised the price of gasoline, 80% of the goods were imported, he drove the republic into billions of IMF debts. People went to demonstrations, and Pérez drowned them in blood, killing 2,000 people…then he fled to America.”
The man freezes, with his mouth open. Finally, he gets the gift of speech back. “I hope this time the pro-American President will be different.” “Are you sure?” “Sorry, I have nothing to say.” Asking the girl from the opposition how she feels about the US: “The US is our neighbor, let them change the power here.” “In countries where the US changed power like Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan, hundreds of thousands people were killed. Are you ready for this?”
Again, she pauses and sighs.
“No, no, no. We are not Africa or Asia. All will go peacefully. Venezuelans will not kill each other.”
Where the opinions splits is the question of whether the free gasoline and free food packages will remain with an American-instilled government. Many are sincerely sure that the “freebies” will remain under a new president. How else? The minority that recognizes that state gifts will be canceled say that they at least “we will be free.” As I said, the protesters are mostly well-dressed, well-off people. By the way, the leader of the opposition, Juan Guido, also has no real economic program promising to “quadruple the oil production.” No one thinks that after that price will fall four times. In short, I get a feeling that neither the President, nor the opposition, know anything about the economy in Venezuela.
The demonstrations in support of Maduro take place at the other end of the city, to prevent the opponents from fighting. “You Americans are insolent!” screamed an old woman in a red t-shirt rushing towards me. “Bastards! You should be handed on a first tree! Cheers to socialism!” “I’m Russian, grandma.” The old lady recoils.  “Sorry, please.” “Don’t get that upset, senora.” Many people gathered here are joyful, dancing and singing.
A soldiers stands in front of me and doesn’t allow me to take any pictures. Not just me, but also other passers-by. “You can’t take pictures here.” “Says who?” “President Maduro.” No, Maduro is definitely doing everything he can to be disliked. Those gathering here are poor, blue-collared workers and farmers from the suburbs. I am interested , honestly, were you brought here on the busses? “Yes, he did!” says one grandfather, proudly displaying a portrait of Che Guevara. “But I would walk here for Maduro! It’s a lie that we were paid to be here.” Other people applaud him happily. I shake hands. “Russians are welcome! Venezuela loves you, you’re home.”
The day of rallies is over. The maintenance crews came to the sidewalk, strewn with plastic bottles, crumpled packs of cigarettes, and other debris left after by a cloud. At the entrance of an old house, old people drink coffee. “They say that today some general has defected to the side of the opposition,” says one of them. “Some significant person.” “What’s this guy’s name?” “Who knows?” Venezuela is split in half. And the situation there may change at any moment.

          SYRIAN WAR REPORT – FEB. 5-8, 2019: RUSSIAN-SUPPLIED S-300 SYSTEM BECOMING OPERATIONAL      Cache   Translate Page      
On February 5, Israel’s ImageSat International company released satellite images showing positions of the Russia-supplied S-300 air defense system in Syria’s Masyaf. The released image shows 3 of the 4 launchers in an upright position and the fourth covered by a camouflage net. This was the first satellite image showing the launchers in an erected position since their arrival from Russia in October 2018. This may indicate that the system is about to become or has already become operational.
Earlier, Russian media reported that the S-300 system will become combat ready in March 2019 after Syrian S-300 crews would finish their training. However, it is possible that the training course was intensified because of a tense situation in the region.
On February 7, the Russian state-run TV network RT reported citing military sources that Iranian forces preparing to move their weapons supply center from the Damascus international airport to the T4 airbase in the province of Homs. The T4 airbase is currently being used by Iranian forces for operations involving unnamed aerial vehicles.
At the same time, the Israeli Haaretz newspaper released a satellite image showing the alleged positions of Iranian forces in Damascus airport and also claimed that the forces are preparing to withdraw to the T4 airbase.
Iran provides very little details on its operations in Syria. However, even if these reports are confirmed, this would not mean that Syria and Iran are limiting their military cooperation. Iranian positions in the Damascus International Airport area have been repeatedly targeted by the Israeli Air Force since the start of the conflict. So, the redeployment of Iranian forces may be an attempt to de-escalate the situation in the countryside of the Syrian capital.
On February 7, the 1st division of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) ambushed a group of ISIS fighters in the Damascus desert killing at least 6 of them. According to a military source, the group was likely carrying out a reconnaissance operation in order to prepare for terrorist attacks.
The 45th Brigade of the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) launched 50 rockets at positions of ISIS around the town of al-Baghuz al-Fawqani in the middle Euphrates River Valley. According to the PMU, the strikes were aimed at preventing ISIS terrorists from entering Iraq.
The US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) are currently finalizing their operation against ISIS in the area. However, a large number of terrorists still control a chunk of the SDF-besieged area.

          British analyst: Venezuelan patriotism, Russian support will be crucial to defending Venezuela from US aggression      Cache   Translate Page      
03 February 2019
British political analyst says that Venezuelan patriotism and Russian support will be crucial to defending Venezuela from the aggression of the United States that is now intent on reasserting its authority in the international arena at the expense of the Venezuelan people after its defeat in Syria.
Dr. Marcus Papadopoulos’s remarks came during an interview with the Syria Times e-newspaper about the reasons behind Washington’s currently attempts to engineer a coup in Venezuela and how Caracas can prevent U.S. from reaching its goals.
“There is more than one reason behind Washington’s attempts to engineer a coup in Venezuela.  I hold the view that there are two key reasons accounting for America’s brazen act of aggression against Venezuela’s sovereignty, and that these are equal in significance to each other,” the analyst said.
He made it clear that one of the reasons for why the Americans are currently trying to overthrow the democratically elected president of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro is the fact that Venezuela’s oil industry is nationalised and Caracas pursues an independent foreign policy.
“This deprives American energy companies, such as ExxonMobil, from taking control of Venezuela’s energy sector and exploiting it for their own gains,” Dr. Papadopoulos added, asserting that the US has an unquenchable thirst for oil and has, historically, gone to monstrously criminal lengths to secure control of, and access to, the largest oil producing markets in the world, most notably in the Middle East.
“With Venezuela geographically situated in what is, traditionally speaking, America’s sphere of influence, policy-makers in Washington are determined to take control of the country’s oil and gas industry, even if this means using military force to do so, as the Americans did in Iraq,” the analyst stated.
He emphasized that Venezuela is a major energy player in global affairs since it is , according to some sources, home to the world’s largest crude-oil reserves, while the country also sits on one of the largest reserves of natural gas in the world.
The close relationship between Venezuela and Russia
The other reason accounting for the US’ interference in the Latin American country, concerns the close relationship between Venezuela and Russia, according to the analyst, who  indicated that for some 20 years now, Caracas and Moscow have cultivated intimate relations with each other in the political, economic and military spheres.
“Today, Russia is the leading supplier of military hardware to Venezuela, and late last year reports surfaced about Russian plans to construct an air base for itself on the Venezuela island of La Orchila which would host Russian strategic bombers capable of delivering nuclear payloads,” Dr. Papadopoulos said
He went on to say:
“The prospect of a Russian military base in Venezuela, and one that can accommodate Russian nuclear bombers, is something that the Americans will bitterly resist.  Whilst Russia is only responding to the increasingly dangerous presence of NATO on its western border, coupled with both the threatening American missile shield in Eastern Europe and Washington’s diabolical withdrawal from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty, the US is determined that its tormenting behaviour on the international stage remains unimpeded hence why the Americans are trying to overthrow President Maduro and replace him with the pro-American puppet, Juan Guaido.”
The analyst stressed that a Venezuela led by the legally and electorally illegitimate Guaido would end political, economic and military co-operation with Russia and make the Latin American country, once again, subservient to the US.
In a response to a question about how Caracas can avoid a military confrontation with U.S, Dr. Papadopoulos said: “Russia is the only country that can either deter Washington from embarking on a military confrontation with Venezuela or indirectly defeat an American military campaign against Caracas, with the aim of overthrowing the legal government of President Maduro.”
“I draw a comparison with how Russia came to the aid of Cuba, following the Cuban Revolution, when the country was faced with imminent American military aggression with the objective of overthrowing Fidel Castro.  In that situation, Moscow ultimately ensured the survival of the Cuban Revolution and, with it, the independence and sovereignty of Cuba.  Russia will be all-important in defending Venezuela and the Venezuelan people from the clutches of Messrs. Trump and Bolton.”
Besides the essential support of Russia, both economically and militarily, the prowess of the National Bolivarian Armed Forces of Venezuela and the patriotism and fiercely independent nature of the Venezuelan people  are main obstacles for US quick military intervention against Caracas, as stated by Dr. Papadopoulos, who indicated that the US could ignite a war in Venezuela in which large parts of the Venezuela population and the economic infrastructure of the country are consumed by a fireball.
U.S. has no moral compunction in starting a war
“The US has no moral compunction in starting a war – either through an invasion or a bombing campaign, or through supporting illegally armed groups – so as to seize control of a country’s economic and military infrastructure and impose a compliant government in the country’s capital. Washington rained down death and destruction on Syria but the Syrian people, aided by Russia, thwarted American ambitions in the country.  Because of their defeat in Syria, the Americans are angry – very, very angry, and are now intent on reasserting their authority in the international arena at the expense of the Venezuelan people.  So the world could, at some point, be witness to Washington raining down death and destruction on Venezuela and its people,” the analyst affirmed.
He, in addition, made it clear that economic sanctions are one of the most potent weapons in the US’ armoury hence the Venezuelan Government could be vulnerable to Washington’s endeavours to instigate a coup through economic strangulation of Venezuela’s economy.
“However, providing that Venezuela still keeps producing and selling oil and gas, and providing that Moscow is able to economically assist Caracas, then Venezuela stands a reasonably good chance of prevailing against American aggression,” concluded, Dr. Papadopoulos, the founder and editor of Politics First magazine.
On January, 24, 2019, an open letter- signed by 70 scholars and Latin America, political science, and history as well as filmmakers, civil society leaders, and other experts- was issued in opposition to ongoing intervention by the United States in Venezuela.
The letter underlined that actions by the Trump administration and its allies in the hemisphere are almost certain to make the situation in Venezuela worse, leading to unnecessary human suffering, violence, and instability.

          Edinburgh Bakal Terapkan Pajak Bagi Turis      Cache   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, Edinburgh - Bila Anda berencana untuk berkunjung ke Edinburgh, siap-siap merogoh kocek tambahan jika ingin pergi ke tempat wisata terkenalnya.

Edinburgh dikabarkan menjadi negara pertama di Britania Raya yang akan menerapkan pajak bagi turis.

Dilansir dari CNN, Minggu (10/2/2019), pajak tambahan bagi turis akan dikenakan pada tujuan wisata populer di Edinburgh.

Dana yang terkumpul dari pajak akan digunakan untuk memperbaiki destinasi yang rusak karena adanya overtourism atau kondisi pada suatu tempat terlalu sering dikunjungi oleh wisatawan hingga menyebabkan kerusakan tertentu.

Edinburgh menamai pajak turisnya Transient Visitor Levy (TVL) atau retribusi pengunjung sementara (wisatawan). Dewan Kota Edinburgh menilai penerapan pajak ini adalah hal terbaik yang dapat dilakukan untuk mempertahankan pariwisata Edinburgh.

"TVL atau pajak turis diterapkan pada wisatawan yang berkunjung ke Edinburgh dan menginap lebih dari satu malam di akomodasi berbayar seperti hotel," demikian isi website pemerintah Edinburgh.

Berapa besar pajak turis Edinburgh?

Edinburgh Castle, Skotlandia. (German Vidal/Getty Images)#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Dewan Kota Edinburgh telah menetapkan biaya pajak turis sekitar 2 poundsterling per hari atau Rp 36.152 (asumsi kurs Rp 18.076 per poundsterling), berdasarkan hasil suara yang diambil. Selanjutnya adalah keputusan Parlemen Skotlandia apakah usulan pajak tersebut akan diterima atau tidak.

Pajak tersebut hanya berlaku bagi turis yang menginap di hotel. Jika turis berkemah,  ia akan terbebas dari pajak tersebut, dengan catatan durasi kemah hanya 7 hari. Lebih dari itu, turis akan dikenakan 14 poundsterling atau sekitar Rp 253.092.

Edinburgh menerapkan pajak ini sebagai bentuk pendanaan infrastruktur pariwisata di sana. Tempat wisata seperti kastil Edinburgh merupakan tempat yang paling banyak dikunjungi dan dirusak sarananya oleh wisatawan, baik sengaja maupun tidak. Edinburgh bukanlah satu-satunya kota yang menerapkan pajak ini.

Venezuela telah terlebih dahulu mengaplikasikan pajak turis bagi orang-orang yang datang ke tempat wisatanya. Pemerintah Venezuela menarik 11 euro dari turis yang datang menyewa kapal pesiar dan berwisata di sana, baik menginap atau tidak.

Bali juga sudah menerapkan pajak turis dan menggunakan dana pajak untuk membersihkan pantai dari sampah.

Chủ tịch nước Nguyễn Minh Triết: nhân dân Việt Nam mong muốn tăng cường đoàn kết, hữu nghị với nhân dân Venezuela trên tất cả các lĩnh vực để cùng nhau phát triển.
Sáng nay 20/11 (theo giờ Hà Nội), tại thủ đô Caracas, Chủ tịch nước Nguyễn Minh Triết đã tới thăm và phát biểu trước Quốc hội Venezuela, chuyển tải thông điệp nhân dân Việt Nam mong muốn tăng cường đoàn kết, hữu nghị với nhân dân Venezuela trên tất cả các lĩnh vực để cùng nhau phát triển. Sự kiện này được nhiều đài phát thanh và đài truyền hình của Venezuela tường thuật trực tiếp.
Bà Chủ tịch Quốc hội Venezuela Cilia Flores nhiệt liệt chào mừng Chủ tịch nước Nguyễn Minh Triết đến thăm trụ sở Quốc hội và có thông điệp gửi tới toàn thể nhân dân Venezuela. Bà Cilia Flores nhấn mạnh: Chúng tôi xin khẳng định rằng chuyến thăm chính thức Venezuela của Chủ tịch nước Nguyễn Minh Triết có ý nghĩa hết sức to lớn đối với chúng tôi. Đối với chúng tôi đây là vinh dự hết sức lớn lao vì đó là bước tiến nữa trong việc tăng cường và thắt chặt tình hữu nghị và hợp tác nhiều mặt giữa nhân dân hai nước Việt Nam và Venezuela không những trong những ngày này mà còn mãi mãi về sau.
Bà Cilia Flores khẳng định Quốc hội Venezuela sẽ ủng hộ và làm hết sức mình để các thoả thuận mà lãnh đạo cấp cao hai nước đạt được nhanh chóng triển khai hiệu quả, góp phần thắt chặt tình hữu nghị giữa nhân dân Việt Nam - Venezuela.

Với phong thái tự tin, cởi mở, chân tình, Chủ tịch nước Nguyễn Minh Triết phát biểu gần 1 tiếng và liên tục bị ngắt quãng bởi những tràng vỗ tay hoan nghênh dài của các đại biểu Quốc hội Venezuela. Mở đầu bài phát biểu, Chủ tịch nước Nguyễn Minh Triết đề cập điểm tương đồng giữa hai dân tộc về truyền thống yêu nước, kiên quyết đấu tranh giành độc lập, tự do với những người Anh hùng như Simon Boliva và Chủ tịch Hồ Chí Minh. Chính điểm tương đồng đó đưa hai đất nước tuy cách xa nhau nửa vòng Trái đất nhưng luôn cổ vũ, ủng hộ nhau trong sự nghiệp đấu tranh giải phóng dân tộc, xây dựng đất nước. Chủ tịch nước bày tỏ khâm phục trước những thành tựu mà nhân dân Venezuela đạt được trong những năm gần đây dưới sự lãnh đạo của Tổng thống Hugo Chavez, khẳng định tính ưu việt chế độ hiện nay ở Venezuela. Chủ tịch nước cũng thông báo với các đại biểu Quốc hội Venezuela thành tựu mà Việt Nam đạt được trong công cuộc đổi mới, chia sẻ kinh nghiệm phát triển kinh tế, xoá đói giảm nghèo. Trong phần cuối bài phát biểu, Chủ tịch nước Nguyễn Minh Triết chuyển 3 thông điệp tới nhân dân Venezuela.
Thứ nhất nhân dân Việt Nam mong muốn tăng cường hữu nghị đoàn kết với nhân dân Venezuela. Thứ hai, Việt Nam mong muốn Venezuela ngày càng phát triển và hùng mạnh là Việt Nam mừng, ngược lại Việt Nam mạnh thì Venezuela mừng. Thứ ba, Việt Nam mong muốn tăng cường hợp tác với Venezuela trên tất cả các lĩnh vực để cùng nhau phát triển.
Chủ tịch nước Nguyễn Minh Triết mong muốn Quốc hội Venezuela đóng góp là nhịp cầu hữu nghị giữa hai dân tộc, mong Quốc hội hai nước mở rộng hợp tác, góp phần đắc lực cho việc phát triển quan hệ đối tác toàn diện Việt Nam- Venezuela.
Cũng trong sáng nay (theo giờ Hà Nội), Chủ tịch nước Nguyễn Minh Triết đã có các cuộc tiếp Ban lãnh đạo Đảng Cộng sản và Đảng Xã hội Chủ nghĩa Thống nhất Venezuela. Chủ tịch nước nhấn mạnh, bên cạnh quan hệ về mặt Nhà nước đang trên đà phát triển tốt đẹp, việc tăng cường quan hệ mọi mặt giữa Đảng Cộng sản và Đảng Xã hội Chủ nghĩa Thống nhất Venezuela với Đảng Cộng sản Việt Nam góp phần đưa quan hệ hai nước đi vào chiều sâu nhằm phục vụ cho sự nghiệp phát triển của mỗi nước và vì hoà bình, ổn định, hợp tác và phát triển ở hai khu vực và trên thế giới.
Tiếp Chủ tịch Đảng Cộng sản Venezuela Geronimo Carrera, Chủ tịch nước Nguyễn Minh Triết đánh giá cao những đóng góp của Đảng trong phong trào cách mạng ở Venezuela nói riêng, phong trào Cộng sản ở châu Mỹ La-tinh và thế giới nói chung. Thành lập năm 1931, đến nay Đảng Cộng sản Venezuela vẫn giữ vững là lực lượng quan trọng của cuộc cách mạng ở đất nước Nam Mỹ này. Chủ tịch nước Nguyễn Minh Triết cảm ơn sự ủng hộ, giúp đỡ to lớn mà Đảng Cộng sản Venezuela giành cho Đảng Cộng sản và nhân dân Việt Nam trong suốt chặng đường dài vừa qua, mong muốn hai Đảng mở rộng hợp tác, tăng cường trao đổi đoàn sang học tập kinh nghiệm.
Ông Geronimo Carrera thông báo với Chủ tịch nước Nguyễn Minh Triết về tình hình Đảng Cộng sản Venezuela thời gian gần đây. Đồng chí cho biết, trong 10 năm qua, Đảng Cộng sản Venezuela tham gia, ủng hộ phong trào cách mạng do Hugo Chavez đứng đầu, xây dựng chủ nghĩa xã hội thế kỷ 21. 6 nghị sĩ Quốc hội và 1 Bộ trưởng trong Chính phủ hiện nay là đảng viên Đảng Cộng sản Venezuela. Ông Geronimo Carrera bày tỏ khâm phục trước những thành tựu mà nhân dân Việt Nam đạt được trong công cuộc đổi mới do Đảng Cộng sản Việt Nam khởi xướng và lãnh đạo; khẳng định Đảng Cộng sản Venezuela sẽ tiếp tục ủng hộ, đóng góp vào việc củng cố, phát triển quan hệ hữu nghị và hợp tác giữa nhân dân hai nước.
Tiếp Ban lãnh đạo Đảng Xã hội Chủ nghĩa Thống nhất Venezuela, Chủ tịch nước Nguyễn Minh Triết đánh giá cao sự ra đời của Đảng, coi đây là một sự kiện trọng đại, đánh dấu bước phát triển quan trọng trong việc tổ chức, tập hợp lực lượng, lãnh đạo quần chúng nhân dân tiến hành sự nghiệp Cách mạng Xã hội Chủ nghĩa ở Venezuela. Chủ tịch nước nhấn mạnh, bên cạnh quan hệ về mặt Nhà nước đang trên đà phát triển tốt đẹp, việc tăng cường quan hệ mọi mặt giữa Đảng Xã hội Chủ nghĩa Thống nhất Venezuela và Đảng Cộng sản Việt Nam góp phần đưa quan hệ hai nước đi vào chiều sâu nhằm phục vụ cho sự nghiệp phát triển của mỗi nước và vì hoà bình, ổn định, hợp tác và phát triển ở hai khu vực và trên thế giới.
Bà Cilia Flores, Chủ tịch Quốc hội, đồng thời là Phó Chủ tịch Đảng Xã hội Chủ nghĩa Thống nhất Venezuela khẳng định, với tư cách là một đảng cách mạng làm nòng cốt chính trị trong cuộc cách mạng Boliva do Tổng thống Hugo Chavez lãnh đạo, nhằm mục tiêu xây dựng Chủ nghĩa Xã hội thế kỷ 21 ở Venezuela Đảng Xã hội Chủ nghĩa Thống nhất Venezuela mong muốn thường xuyên trao đổi và học hỏi kinh nghiệm với Đảng Cộng sản Việt Nam và cùng nhau thúc đẩy quan hệ hữu nghị, đoàn kết và hợp tác toàn diện giữa hai nước.
Theo chương trình, sáng 20/11 (theo giờ địa phương), tức đêm nay (theo giờ Hà Nội), Tổng thống Venezuela Hugo Chavez sẽ chủ trì Lễ đón chính thức Chủ tịch nước Nguyễn Minh Triết tại Dinh Tổng thống. Sau đó, hai nhà lãnh đạo hội đàm về biện pháp nhằm tăng cường hơn nữa quan hệ hữu nghị và hợp tác giữa hai nước theo tinh thần “quan hệ đối tác toàn diện”./.

More bloviating.
Every one of the scores of known cases of hyperinflation dating back over 700 years bears witness to a reckless, breakneck campaign of money creation preceding it.
Post hoc, propter hoc fallacy.

All hyperinflations can be traced to scarcity of real resources for different reasons preceding money creation. Weimar was the result of war reparations. Zimbabwe was the result of fall in production. Venezuela was the result of pegging its currency to the dollar, thereby abandoning currency sovereignty.

See, for example, Cullen Roche, Hyperinflation - It's More than Just a Monetary Phenomenon (2011).

What's Earle's "solution"? No, not gold. Bitcoin.

          David Von Drehle — That Green New Deal has some seeing only red ink      Cache   Translate Page      
Which brings us to the common ground that Trump shares with Ocasio-Cortez: Neither one believes in budgets. Central to the Green New Deal is a formulation known as modern monetary theory, which holds that the spending power of a sovereign government is limited only by its productive resources. Trump's fiscal insanity - massive spending along with pleas for lower interest rates - is modern monetary theory in all but name, and his trillion-dollar deficits are inspirational for the authors of the Green New Deal.
For today's left-wing Democrats, the theory promises to answer the critique made famous by the late British prime minister Margaret Thatcher. The problem with socialism, Thatcher said from experience, is "you eventually run out of other people's money." Modern monetary theory says simply: Print some more.
Even the theory gurus agree, however, that printing more money can eventually lead to inflation, and enough inflation can turn a rich country into Venezuela. The mantra of the Green New Dealers - that "deficits don't matter" - is only true until it isn't.
Could it be that Trump's reckless spending and his feckless Republican enablers will doom Democratic firebrands to live in the real world? Seems unfair. But the United States needs at least one party of reality.
Propaganda piece for the bipartisan Establishment, which is deeply conservative fiscally. All emotion, no fact-based argument.

Typical article by an uninformed journalist writing for money. Not worth wasting time on. That The Washington Post sees fit to print this sort of thing is a tell in itself.

          Ellen Brown - The Venezuela Myth Keeping Us From Transforming Our Economy      Cache   Translate Page      
Some critics of MMT say it will create inflation, like 'money printing' has done in Venezuela, but Ellen Brown explains why this isn't the case.

Venezuela’s problems are not the result of the government issuing money and using it to hire people to build infrastructure, provide essential services and expand economic development. If it were, unemployment would not be at 33 percent and climbing. Venezuela has a problem that the US does not have and will never have: it owes massive debts in a currency it cannot print itself, namely US dollars. When oil (its principal resource) was booming, Venezuela was able to meet its repayment schedule. But when oil plummeted, the government was reduced to printing Venezuelan Bolivars and selling them for US dollars on international currency exchanges. As speculators drove up the price of dollars, more and more printing was required by the government, massively deflating the national currency.
It was the same problem suffered by Weimar Germany and Zimbabwe, the two classic examples of hyperinflation typically raised to silence proponents of government expansion of the money supply before Venezuela suffered the same fate. Prof. Michael Hudson, an economic rock star who supports MMT principles, has studied the hyperinflation question extensively. He confirms that those disasters were not due to governments issuing money to stimulate the economy. Rather, he writes, “Every hyperinflation in history has been caused by foreign debt service collapsing the exchange rate. The problem almost always has resulted from wartime foreign currency strains, not domestic spending.”

Although Venezuela is not technically at war, it is suffering from foreign currency strains triggered by aggressive attacks by a foreign power. US economic sanctions have been going on for years, causing at least $20 billion in losses to the country. About $7 billion of its assets are now being held hostage by the US, which has waged an undeclared war against Venezuela ever since George W. Bush’s failed military coup against President Hugo Chavez in 2002. Chavez boldly announced the “Bolivarian Revolution,” a series of economic and social reforms that dramatically reduced poverty and illiteracy and improved health and living conditions for millions of Venezuelans. The reforms, which included nationalizing key components of the nation’s economy, made Chavez a hero to millions of people and the enemy of Venezuela’s oligarchs.

Ellen Brown says how in the 1930's the U.S. had a public bank called the Reconstruction Finance Corporation which rebuilt America after the 1930's crash, but after WW2 the bank was shut down, probably because it competed with the private banks. Ellen Brown also talks about MMT, although she doesn't agree with everything about it.



This episode starts with a look at three stories from Latin America. One of corruption in Brazil, one of a coup in Venezuela, and one of a strike movement in Mexico.
Lee also interviewed Ellen Brown who is an attorney and author who has published books on alternative banking. In 2010 she founded the Public Banking Institute to advocate for public banking nationwide. Brown and Lee discuss public banking, Universal Basic Income, and Modern Monetary Theory.

La Prensa

Caracas, Venezuela.

La entrada a Venezuela de alimentos y medicinas enviados por Estados Unidos es la nueva arma política que empuñan el presidente Nicolás Maduro y el opositor Juan Guaidó en su pugna por el poder, en medio de la severa crisis que aqueja al país.

Guaidó, reconocido por medio centenar de países como mandatario interino, llamó a la fuerza armada a permitir el ingreso de una carga para atender inicialmente a la población más vulnerable, que calcula en 300,000 personas.

Maduro, que asegura que la escasez de alimentos y medicinas se debe a sanciones estadounidenses, se niega a permitir lo que considera un "show de la ayuda humanitaria falsa".

"La ayuda humanitaria es el centro de la lucha entre los dos bloques de poder", dice a AFP el politólogo Luis Salamanca.

Lea más: El comercio del dolor: las "farmacias" callejeras en la frontera entre Colombia y VenezuelaEl forcejeo "está alrededor de la Fuerza Armada, tratando de ganarse a los militares, Guaidó; tratando de mantenerlos con él, Maduro", añadió.

Militares venezolanos bloquearon con dos contenedores y un camión cisterna el puente Las Tienditas, limítrofe con Colombia, donde son acopiados los primeros cargamentos de ayuda.

Desde que se autoproclamó presidente interino el 23 de enero, Guaidó busca quebrar la Fuerza Armada, sostén de Maduro, pero a pesar de algunas fisuras, la cúpula militar se mantiene leal al presidente socialista, al igual que las cabezas de los poderes judicial y electoral.

Para John Magdaleno, director de la consultora Polity, el pulso alrededor de la ayuda es "un hito" que "conduce inevitablemente a escalar la conflictividad" entre el gobierno y la oposición, pero también entre Maduro y los países que respaldan a Guaidó.

) de amenazar con el uso de la fuerza", afirma a AFP.

El gobierno de Donald Trump, que ha reiterado que el uso del ejército en Venezuela es "una opción", congeló las cuentas de los jerarcas chavistas y anunció más sanciones que cortarán a Maduro el acceso a los ingresos por la venta de crudo a Estados Unidos.

Washington está "agotando todos los recursos antes", pero "este capítulo de ayuda humanitaria sería el prolegómeno de una escalada del conflicto mucho más importante que en efecto podría involucrar algún tipo de intervención militar", dice Magdaleno.

En ese escenario, el analista no descarta que grupos "muy radicalizados" dentro de la Fuerzas Armada planteen resistir.

No obstante, según la subsecretaria de Estado para Asuntos del Hemisferio Occidental, Kimberly Breier, Estados Unidos descarta "entrar por la fuerza al territorio venezolano" para hacer ingresar la ayuda humanitaria.

Lea más: Maduro asegura que impedirá el "show" de la ayuda humanitaria- Juego "terminal" -La ONU, que ha dicho estar preparada para enviar ayuda de urgencia a Venezuela, advierte que primero debe tener el acuerdo del gobierno de Maduro.

"La ayuda humanitaria nunca debería ser usada como pieza política", dijo el jueves el portavoz de la Secretaría General de la ONU, Stéphane Dujarric.

Venezuela está sumida en la peor crisis de su historia moderna.

Las expropiaciones afectaron la industria nacional y el desplome de la producción de petróleo, origen de 96% de las divisas, limita las importaciones de productos básicos.

La escasez de medicamentos ronda un 85%, los centros de salud se enfrentan a una mengua de insumos médicos, equipos no operativos y el colapso de los servicios de agua y electricidad.

Lea más: Maduro pide por la paz en una carta dirigida al pueblo de EEUUMiles de enfermos con afecciones crónicas tienen dificultades para acceder a sus tratamientos, según ONGs y grupos humanitarios críticos del gobierno.

Pero Maduro acusa a Estados Unidos de armar una "coalición internacional" para "cometer la grave locura de intervenir militarmente Venezuela bajo la falsa excusa de una crisis humanitaria inexistente".

Para el exjefe parlamentario opositor Henry Ramos Allup, la negativa del gobierno frente al envío de ayuda "los expone más aún ante el mundo como violadores de los derechos humanos".

La oposición critica que, mientras tanto, Caracas envió 100 toneladas de ayuda humanitaria a Cuba, recientemente golpeada por un tornado.

El gobierno está ante un "dilema estratégico" pues con "cualquier decisión que tome pierde", apunta Magdaleno.

Si cediera sería un reconocimiento implícito a que existe una crisis humanitaria; y si no la acepta, como ya ha dicho que hará, se expone al rechazo popular.

"Maduro se va a imponer.

Ya no le importa mucho, porque está jugando un juego con características terminales", que amenaza su estadía en el poder, estimó Salamanca.


           Comentario en Venezuela: epicentro geopolítico mundial. Por Ángel Guerra Cabrera por Sin-permiso       Cache   Translate Page      
Un placer leerte, Tocororo. El imperio busca su coartada con la colaboración de falsimedia. Si los falsos medios independientes se lo propusieran descontarían las falsedades y engaños en menos de 24 horas. La ayuda de 20 millones es una rastrera jugada para iniciar la invasión creando una nueva administración y abriendo el camino a los escuadrones de la muerte. Ni siquiera se han molestado en buscar la gestión de la ONU y de Cruz Roja, demostrando así que quienes tienen embargados más de 20.000 millones, no persiguen otro objetivo que buscar la provocación y una administración paralela en el entorno de la crisis humanitaria que ellos mismos han provocado. Pero que nadie se confunda. En el caso de Venezuela y resto de naciones que rechazan la guerra, la función depredadora y destructiva se hará mediante la guerra y otras formas de rapiña, mientras que en el patio trasero se hará igualmente por las leyes neoliberales del mercado y políticas de la dependencia imperial, como la destrucción de la Amazonía brasileña con la ayuda del regalapatrias Bolsonaro. Acabar con el capitalismo en todo el mundo debe convertirse en un objetivo primordial para la auto supervivencia y bienestar ya que, en su lógica de crecimiento exponencial, no dispone de más frenos de emergencia que las guerras y las catástrofes naturales. Por tanto, el decrecimiento económico y demográfico debe ser contemplado como un antídoto irrenunciable para que nunca más el crecimiento sea la gasolina que alimenta y da aliento avesta maquinaria infernal en un planeta claramente sobreexplotado y donde las células malignas crecen exponencialmente como los nenúfares, devorando los recursos como lo haría una megafauna con el mismo nivel de crecimiento. Esto no iría con Cuba, no sometida a las leyes de acumulación sino a un criminal bloqueo y cuya huella ecológica es insignificante. Aquí sí existe un margen de crecimiento. Saludos.

Como cualquier embate de la naturaleza, ciclones, tempestades e inundaciones o de lo que sea que azota el territorio de la isla de Cuba, como bandidaje, invasores mercenarios, terrorismo mayamero, payasotes contrarrevolucionarios, subvencionad@s con nómina, fauna variopinta, carroñeros, auras, etc.. se registra una respuesta inmediata para proteger las vidas humanas de los cuban@s, eso es lo primero de todo, sin perder un solo momento, las autoridades con el presidente a la cabeza y todas las fuerzas populares, a restablecer los servicios y esto se consigue en tiempo record, asi ha sido desde el primer momento con el triunfo de la revolución, Fidel al frente con todo el aparato revolucionario y asi continua siendo ahora mismo con el presidente Miguel Diaz Canel, al frente con todo el aparato revolucionario y fuerzas populares. En algo novedoso como es un tornado y sus consecuencias destructivas ha sido la misma respuesta y para no ahondar mas en el tema, el compañero Rey nos pone en directo y sobre el lugar, nos describe perfectamente los acontecimientos como vecino del mismísimo lugar donde afectó el tornado. El compañero Rey llama con su nombre adecuado y exacto a cada miserable, mentiroso, farsante, antisociales y esas grullas organizadas con “trípode oculto” que van a cualquier lugar con cualquier acontecimiento, para manejar imágenes fraudulentas y después, hacer los montajes debidos en los estudios preparados para tal fin y subirlos a las redes, facebook, youtube o whatsapp, es la ultima tendencia ahora mismo en latinoamerica, especialmente en Venezuela, Nicaragua y en Cuba. Volvemos a tener que recordar que en Libia hicieron el montaje de la toma de la Pza. verde cuando todavía no había ocurrido tal evento para desmoralizar a las tropas que defendían la legalidad, o más tarde en Siria con todos y cada uno de los videos subidos a la red donde mostraban imagenes falsas y contaminadas, pues bien ahora mismo hay tendencia, como digo más arriba, aquí en Cuba, hacer todo tipo de “reportajes” sobre cualquier evento y presentarlo como “fake new”. Ese video es burdo, de bajísima calidad manipulativa, y es que en Cuba ni el montaje de este tipo de videos es fácil para esos carroñeros, porque como dice Rey, si se descubre alguno de esos miserables se los comen vivos en cualquier situación, pero mira por donde las migajas las recogen rápidamente para darles audición, por ejemplo el reportero de Radio Marti en su enlace que pareciera haber contratado en un joven blog cubano, el “achinao” ,Tony cara manzana, en sus comentarios-tertulias de “Cuéntame cómo pasó” habla que los escoltas del presidente Diaz Canel tuvieron que poner pies en polvorosa para salvarse de las iras de los de Regla y todos los demás detalles inexistentes, de unos hechos que no existieron, y blablabla… Realmente patético y sobre todo cómico el personaje de marras. Como dice Rey: “Al enemigo, a los antisociales a los anti-pueblo, solo les queda la mentira como arma, como les pasa a todos los miserables en cualquier parte” en este caso al chinito “cara manzana” todavía le queda mucho ridículo por hacer, ya lo veo encargando lencería rosa o morada para cursillo de diplomático de United Kindong en Canada…

He leido con atencion tus comentarios Sin-permiso, como siempre aclaratorios y aportando datos. El libro de Garces es cierto que es difícil localizarlo, yo lo conocía por referencias pero no he podido hacerme con él , intentaré con un amigo que puede mirar en alguna tienda de libros descatalogados como dices. Me centro un poco en mi comentario sobre lo que dices del atentado que hubo en la academia de cadetes colombiana y que se responsabilizó al ELN desde el primer instante y que después de un tiempo se hace eco en la prensa que hay un "comunicado" de un portavoz del ELN haciéndose responsable de la cruenta acción con explosivos. Personalmente tengo mis dudas por no decir muy pocas, que esa atentado contra la academia de cadetes fue obra del "Gladio" o el ejército secreto de la OTAN, conocido por estas siglas la organización terrorista que fue creada por la CIA y la OTAN para supuestamente evitar una "invasión" de la URSS a Europa Occidental pero que no fue sino una patraña organizada para aniquilar todas las organizaciones de izquierda comunistas existentes en Europa en la época de la guerra fría y que se extendió a latinoamerica y a Asia en otro modo. Colombia es el país de latinoamerica especializado en falsos positivos, o banderas falsas/falses blages, un narcoestado terrorista, con la oligarquía más fascista de latinoamerica, un pais con 7 bases yankees, que la hacen el portaaviones imperial en latinoamerica para su política de "seguridad nacional" , paramilitares, mercenarios, y como último colofón, semi miembro de la OTAN y es por esto último que hablo del Gladio, su filosofia y estrategia usada en Colombia, como aliado-miembro de la OTAN, que como digo mas arriba para contener el avance de los partidos comunistas y la izquierda en general se infiltraban y manipulaban grupos de extrema izquierda con agentes provocadores y militantes de extrema derecha, asi que la intención era manipular las organizaciones más radicales de izquierda para provocar el caos y de ese modo la responsabilidad caería en los partidos políticos de izquierda y poder reprimirlos. El ELN tienen una estructura diferente a las FARC y se hace mas fácil teóricamente infiltrarlos y como resultado usar planificadamente ahora en el plan que existe de intervención en Venezuela, posteriormente en Nicaragua y lo que les humedece los leotardos, Cuba. Desde este comentario quiero dirigirme al compañero chachareo que he leido ahora algún comentario al respecto en el post: https://lapupilainsomne.wordpress.com/2019/01/22/por-que-no-tienen-fundamento-juridico-las-exigencias-a-cuba-de-que-entregue-a-negociadores-del-eln/. Estimado compañero sinceramente te equivocaste en tus apreciaciones y realmente la reflexión te toca a ti por tus palabras, yo creo que a estas alturas te habras dado cuenta que te dejaste llevar por un impulso de defensa de tu Cuba, pero era precisamente lo contrario, era una provocación urdida y con la vista entre otros planes, debajo y encima de la mesa, puesta precisamente en volver a incluir a Cuba en la lista de países terroristas, un atentado terrorista que solo favorecía los intereses imperialistas, qué causalidad!! Por algo, el criminal Bolton habló sobre la troika de la Tirania, compuesta por Venezuela, Nicaragua, y por supuesto Cuba, una especie de eje del mal latinoamericano y del Caribe.

George W. Bush, republicano, en 2002 preparó y organizó un golpe de Estado contra el comandante Chávez que fracasó. Desde entonces un golpe continuado, guerra económica, psicológica, sucia, y todo el vocabulario intervencionista, y cuando Maduro sustituye a Chávez cuando este falleció, ganó las elecciones del 14 de abril de 2013, una vez se cumplió el margen que la constitución proclama, y el derrotado Henrique Capriles , alias "caprichitos" , otro golpista en el 2002, que estuvo asediando la embajada cubana y también arrestando a Ramón Rodríguez Chacín, entonces Ministro de Interior y Justicia del gobierno de Chávez, pues "caprichitos" no reconoció su derrota una vez más, (antes muerta que sencilla) y llamó a la "arrechera" a "expresar la rabia" y la "frustración" . "Toda esa arrechera descárguela" declaró en una conferencia de prensa televisiva, el derrotado de los escuálidos afligidos. Hubo muchos muertos por esa violencia provocada, asesinaron a seis militantes socialistas que celebraban la victoria de Maduro y a un policía. Hubo 61 personas heridas. A una militante del PSUV la quemaron viva y no se salvaron del incendio los CDI (centros médicos)y los servicios públicos que brinda el Estado al pueblo venezolano. A Maduro no le han dado tregua desde el primer día de su proclamación como presidente de la Rep. Bolivariana de Venezuela, han ido con todo tipo de campañas de propaganda negra masiva, redes sociales, medios de comunicación y con Trump, republicano, las "fake-news" sin descanso, a todas horas, en EEUU, América latina y el planeta entero, creando una matriz informativa sobre Maduro como dictador, sanguinario, que mata de hambre al pueblo y tiene las cárceles llenas de presos políticos, es la viva imagen de lo que se llegó a crear sobre la figura de Arbenz en Guatemala, y de todas y cada una de las intervenciones e invasiones de estos forajidos imperialistas yankees, que siempre han utilizado previo a sus invasiones o golpes de Estado, una sofisticada propaganda de guerra a escala mundial para legitimar sus barbaridades. Ahora con Trump es la guerra humanitaria, con Libia fueron los bombardeos "humanitarios" En el caso de Venezuela, primero se la bloquea económicamente para crear el mayor caos en el mercado venezolano, luego vienen masivamente las "fake-news" que construye de la noche a la mañana un país de guión , que no existe, virtual, y como nueva modalidad la autoproclamación de presidente de la Rep. de Venezuela después de una manifestación en una Pza. se auto titula “presidente” y acto seguido EEUU y sus secuaces del cartel limeño, los países europeos, no todos, reconocen a un presidente inexistente, de un país inexistente, con ejercito inexistente y por último, con el caos económico y social y político y sobre todo la propaganda negra, crear una crisis humanitaria inexistente, es decir, un escenario de guiñol, todo una fabula, nada existe. Detrás de esa crisis humanitaria viene la ayuda humanitaria y aquí es donde está el casus belli, que tiene como objeto crear una alteración ciudadana o sublevación en busca de los alimentos y medicamentos que jocosamente impide esa guerra económica y el bloqueo y embargos y el descaro personificado. Ya han comenzado anunciando la llegada de algún avión a Caracas, un silfido funcionario de Pto. Rico, haciendo las carcajadas del los venezolanos patriotas, con su avión lleno de pertrechos "humanitarios" , nunca llegó tampoco, también estaban preparando por un puente que hace de frontera en el estado de Táchira, pensando que la población va a romper las barreras en busca de comida que les trae las Naciones Unidas, que por cierto ha declarado que no enviará con tal ningún convoy de ayuda humanitaria para proteger al pueblo hambriento, claro que el guion hollywoodiense se trata de marines dando barritas de chocolate a los niños famélicos, por cierto este tema lo anunció en sus comentarios -tertulias, un "autotitulado" de todo lo que haga falta, también pareciera reportero de Radio Martí de la "histórica" ciudad de Miami, que se hace llamar el Tony, otros le llaman el chino, algunos que se proclaman amigos, le llaman cariñosamente, chinito pillo, (la verdad que no lo entiendo), la realidad es algo diferente, tiene enfoque la cosa, pero hay algo curioso, el cómico este que se preocupa por LPI y por el supuesto "silencio" de comentaristas como dice el avezado "reportero de guerra" venido del frio, algo así como aquel libro de "El espía venido del frío" que no sé si ha firmado algún contrato de programación para la isla con un joven blog por el socialismo y la revolución, porque el achinao este ya en su delirio transitorio, después de un cursillo de redacción y estrategia comunicativa dirigido por Tomas Regalado, que Tomas,?, un Château Mouton-Rothschild, (ni en sueños, pero quedaba bien) y así con el chiste este diario fue cayendo en gracia el chinito este en su exilio de Miami como dirigente de Alpha 66, así mismo lo ha confesado a sus oyentes hace bien poco, porque no era un simple militante,!!! dejando con la boca abierta a sus "incordiantes" amigos, es que por autotitularse que no quede además si lo hace un muchachito como Guaidito, el de marras no va a ser menos. Pues el mentado chinito que a este paso se va a autotitular "chinatow" informa masivamente a la "cautiva" y "sufrida" isla en su enlace blogero, de todos los movimientos de la ofensiva contrarrevolucionaria contra la triada tiránica de Venezuela, Nicaragua y por ultimo Cuba, que es de donde procede por nacimiento dicho cara manzana, "car’appel" en tierras anglosajonas. Para no hacer largo el cuento, dejó a sus lectores ese hilo de "suspense del día anterior" a sus lectores del joven blog diciendo que mañana se espera la llegada de los primeros convoyes de “ayuda humanitaria” a Venezuela, ohhhhh y con eso Maduro tiene los días contados, (si, como mínimo hasta el año 2025) quizás haya reelección, no se sabe todavía, es algo que el pueblo deberá decidir, como todo. Todavía las risas suenan por la presumida incursión humanitaria que no se realizó , es que con tantas "fake news" se creen el cuento de ellos mismos, y bueno así todo con el cómico quiero y no puedo este. En otro comentario hablaré sobre sus comentarios sobre los grillos, y su primicia que lanzó al ruedo "The Mystery of the Havana Syndrome (down)" apoteósico aquello.

Cuando la psicópata criminal de guerra Hilary Clinton, (demócrata), la enviada, y entonces secretaria de estado del régimen de Obama (demócrata), verdadero inductor de la invasión y el caos en Libia, así como su primer golpe blando (smart power) en Latinoamérica, en Honduras, fue sorprendida la Hilary, aparentemente cuando se reía a carcajadas, la psicópata de marras, cuando ya se materializó el calculado asesinato y sodomización del presidente de Libia, Gadafi, con aquella frase histórica sacada del culto latín para bestializarlo en ese inglés yankee de goma de mascar, "we came, we saw, he died". Ya tenían planificado el mismo guión en Siria, con decapitación en este caso del presidente Bashad Al Assad, pero aquí no les funcionó porque el pueblo ha apoyado con su entrega y sus propias vidas a su patria y a su presidente, y finalmente han sido prácticamente derrotados militarmente los mercenarios creados por ese imperio forajido y más demencial de la historia de la humanidad, EEUU, colocado geográficamente por desgracia a 90 millas, pero ahora en Siria queda otra guerra, la económica, y que el forajido imperio también la tiene declarada para impedir como sea que se reconstruya Siria, que ha quedado sin una infraestructura sana, también el régimen forajido yankee cuenta con su aliado "natural" Israel para otros "planes secretos" y que en este caso están "debajo de la mesa" , no "sobre la mesa" como les gusta decir a estos fascistas furibundos con sus opciones. Obama el demócrata, apostó en su momento por una ofensiva en tres frentes a la vez: Golpe de estado en Ucrania (Pza. Maidan), destrucción y caos en Libia, y golpe de estado en Venezuela, porque había que dejar claro que el imperialismo seguía mandando de forma unilateral, los escogidos y excepcionales, americanos (como les gusta llamarse a ellos mismos). Dwight Eisenhower, que se declaró republicano, organizó la invasión contra el gobierno de Jacobo Arbenz y su asesinato, en Guatemala en 1954. Lyndon Johnson, demócrata, que sustituyó al asesinado JFK, invadió la República Dominicana para derrocar a Juan Bosch en 1965. Richard Nixon, republicano, y su asesor especial, Henry Kissinger, prepararon el golpe de estado en Chile en 1973 y asesinar a Salvador Allende. Son tres ejemplos primicias de estos "salvadores" de las democracias en Latinoamérica, por supuesto que se quedan muchas más intervenciones, sin ir más lejos en Playa Girón, donde fueron derrotados en 72 h. todos los mercenarios de la "heroica" e "invencible" brigada de asalto 2506 que partieron de la entonces Nicaragua a playa Girón en el día D, hora H y C de compota finalmente. Hoy en día en la infecta Miami, dicha "heroica" brigada 2506 siguen celebrando anualmente, "Je ne sais quoi" .. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ya-DfpmZPog

Unverfroren demonstriert ARD-aktuell mit ihren Venezuela-Berichten Ignoranz gegenüber dem Völkerrecht.

Gegenpäpste hat die Geschichte reihenweise hervorgebracht. Gegenkaiser auch. In der Neuzeit ist man davon abgekommen. Heutzutage darf ein Volk sich seine Führer selbst wählen — vorausgesetzt, die Kandidaten wurden vom jeweiligen Geldadel für geeignet befunden. Dass es dabei mal zu Meinungsverschiedenheiten kommt, war zu erwarten. Wozu wären denn sonst, beispielsweise, unsere ARD-aktuell-Qualitätsjournalisten nütze? Die mussten schließlich helfen, einen Gegen-Präsidenten herbeizuquasseln. Okay, es ist vollbracht. Natürlich nicht hier bei uns, sondern in Europas lateinamerikanischen Kolonien (1). Genauer: in Venezuela. Bald wird es mit Nicaragua weitergehen (2), und Kuba kommt garantiert auch noch dran.

          El pulso entre Rusia y Estados Unidos por Venezuela en la ONU      Cache   Translate Page      

El presidente de Estados Unidos, Donald Trump, ha dicho que una intervención militar en Venezuela es "una opción".

Estados Unidos está presionando al Consejo de Seguridad de la ONU para que formalmente exija elecciones presidenciales libres, justas y creíbles en Venezuela con observadores internacionales, dijeron diplomáticos, una medida que llevó a Rusia a proponer un proyecto rival para buscar una solución.
 
Moscú y Washington están en lados opuestos de la campaña liderada por Estados Unidos para el reconocimiento internacional del líder opositor venezolano y presidente de la Asamblea Nacional, Juan Guaidó, por sobre el presidente, Nicolás Maduro. Guaidó se declaró presidente encargado de Venezuela en una masiva manifestación callejera el 23 de enero pasado.
 
Diplomáticos de los 15 miembros del Consejo de Seguridad se reunieron en privado el viernes por la tarde para discutir la resolución redactada por Estados Unidos, a la que accedió Reuters, que expresaría "pleno apoyo a la Asamblea Nacional como la única institución elegida democráticamente".
 
Rusia, China, Guinea Ecuatorial y Sudáfrica bloquearon el mes pasado la posibilidad de que el Consejo de Seguridad emitiera una declaración en ese tono. Pero los mismos cuatro países fracasaron en el objetivo de una apuesta liderada por los rusos para que el consejo dejara de discutir públicamente sobre Venezuela.
Durante las conversaciones sobre el proyecto de resolución de Estados Unidos el viernes, Rusia -que acusa a Washington de respaldar un intento de golpe de estado en Venezuela- propuso un texto alternativo, dijeron diplomáticos.
 
El borrador ruso expresaría "preocupación por los intentos de intervenir en asuntos que son esencialmente de jurisdicción interna". También señalaría una "preocupación por la amenaza de uso de la fuerza contra la integridad territorial e independencia política" de Venezuela.
 
El presidente de Estados Unidos, Donald Trump, ha dicho que una intervención militar en Venezuela es "una opción".
 
No estaba claro si o cuándo el proyecto de resolución del Consejo de Seguridad podría ser sometido a votación. Una resolución del consejo necesita nueve votos y ningún veto por parte de Estados Unidos, Gran Bretaña, Francia, Rusia o China para ser aprobada.

In her first race, Kamala Harris campaigned as tough on crime — and unseated the country's most progressive prosecutor by



Kamala Harris is really destroying her own image with this vanity run for president.  Most people didn't know about her past.  Now they're learning and it's not at all pretty.

In other bad news, THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER notes:

 Under the former CEO's separation agreement in September, CBS is supposed to pay for an office for Moonves, and is presumably footing the bill for Moon Rise.

Les Moonves, fired by CBS over claims of sexual misconduct, has created three new companies under the banner "Moon Rise," according to a filing with the California Secretary of State.

The filing says that Moon Rise Unlimited, Moon Rise Technologies and Moon Rise Productions have been registered since Oct. 30, and the presumed parent company lists Moonves as the lone manager.

Who is going to work with that creep?  I can't believe that.  I thought both he and his trashy wife would be humiliated enough to just live in the shadows.  Instead, he's setting up shot and she's back to hosting BIG BROTHER. 


Closing with C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot:"


Friday, February 8, 2019.  Joe Biden contemplates a run as the press attacks Tulsi Gabbard.

Starting with US politics, Aime Parnes (THE HILL) observes:


Former Vice President Joe Biden's words and policy positions on the Iraq War could come back to haunt him if he enters the race for the White House.
Biden is popular with Democrats, polls show he leads most of his competitors in the 2020 field and a survey this week found more than 60 percent want him in the race. He routinely leads polls of Democrats asked to pick their favored presidential candidate.
But his words on Iraq from nearly two decades ago sound out-of-step with the increasingly left-leaning party he would be seeking to lead. 
Biden backed the resolution giving President George W. Bush the authority to invade Iraq, and he also praised the president in a Senate floor speech at the time for his handling of the case for war.


Joe did not have the problems that Hillary Clinton or John Edwards had when it came to Iraq.  As the late Elizabeth Edwards noted, John Edwards came clean on Iraq and apologized for it but Hillary refused to take accountability for her support for the Iraq War (saying she was tricked by Bully Boy Bush is not taking accountability, it is saying "I"m so stupid even an idiot can fool me").

Parnes notes 2008 in one sentence but never addresses why it wasn't an issue for Joe when he last attempted to be the Democratic Party nominee.

There are several reasons.  First among them, the Iraq War wasn't his focus, he was focused on partitioning Iraq or creating a federalist system.  He repeatedly denied this was partitioning Iraq.  Many Iraqis disagreed.  During his brief 2007 and January 2008 campaign for the nomination, he was repeatedly on the defense about this issue.  Seeking votes in Iowa in the last stages of his campaign, he was still having to face the issue and clarify or expand on his previous remarks.

It is true that CODEPINK was bird-dogging Hillary Clinton over her vote and support for the Iraq War at this time (and only bird-dogging her) but Joe's mess at that time was being the face of US imperialism announcing that Iraq should be three different government under a federalist system.  This was not what Iraqis were calling for at the time and here was this non-Iraqi from a country that started the war now insisting what would be done next.

Beau Biden is another factor.  Beau served in Iraq.  Chelsea Clinton did not serve in Iraq (though she did support the Iraq War, a reality she tries to lie about today).  With a son in Iraq, the hypocrite label was a little harder to hang on Joe.

There's also the fact that no one really thought Joe Biden stood a chance at the nomination.  He was gaffe prone.  He infamously 'borrowed' from another for a big speech in a previous run.  He wasn't seen as a viable candidate by the press.

What's different now?

Sexism will be called out.  I'm not just referring to Anita Hill (Parnes covers that).  I'm also referring to the media itself.  In New Hampshire, speaking publicly, Hillary's eyes well.  She does not cry, she does not sob.  But Bill Moyers, Jesse Jackson Jr. and countless others mocked her for that, ridiculed her for that, etc.  Months later, Joe Biden, then on the ticket as Barack Obama's running mate, starts crying on stage in the middle of a speech.  It's not even one day's coverage, let alone the weeks of coverage Hillary endured.

Things have changed and they won't help Joe.  Most of all, his Iraq-free card won't exist this time, not after he shamed himself by publicly praising Bully Boy Bush at an awards ceremony last year.  Joe's popularity is as an idea.  As an actual person?  If he runs, his popularity will plummet.

We heard attacks from warmongers in politics/media before. Those opposed to Iraq/Libya/Syria regime change wars are called “dicatator-lovers” or “cozy” with evil regimes. Rather than defend their position, they resort to name-calling & smears. American people wont fall for this.





US House Rep Tulsi Gabbard is running for the 2020 Democratic Party nomination and you know she makes some tremble by the vicious media attacks she's already enduring.




Last Saturday, she officially launched her campaign.




Tulsi Gabbard officially announced her candidacy for President of the United States and kicked off her campaign on Saturday, Feb. 2, 2019, in Hawaii. She was introduced by Ryan Soon, a fellow member of the Hawaii National Guard who served with her in Iraq and Kuwait. Tulsi's friends, family, and supporters gathered to hear her vision for the future of our nation. More than 3,500 private and public watch parties across the country were coordinated by grassroots supporters to take part in the live-streamed event.
In her remarks, Tulsi Gabbard said, "When we raise our right hand and volunteer to serve, we set aside our own interests—to serve our country and to fight for ALL Americans. We serve as one—indivisible and unbreakable, united by this bond of  love for each other and love for our country. It is this principle of putting service above self, that is at the heart of every soldier, every service member. And it is in this spirit that today I announce my candidacy for President of the United States of America.


"I will bring a soldier's values and principles to the White House—restoring the values of dignity, honor, and respect to the presidency. And above all, love for our people and love of country. I ask you to join me, in this spirit of putting service before self, to stand up against the forces of greed and corruption."

Possibly some of the press attacks stem from the press fear that Tulsi will bring Iraq into the conversation.  Parnes, for example, is convinced that Iraq's not an issue in 2020.

Really?


Senator Elizabeth Warren's running for the nomination and she's contributed a major paper to COFR's FOREIGN AFFAIRS:




A foreign policy that works for all Americans must also be driven by honest assessments of the full costs and risks associated with going to war. All three of my brothers served in the military, and I know our service members and their families are smart, tough, and resourceful. But having a strong military doesn’t mean we need to constantly use it. An effective deterrent also means showing the good judgment to exercise appropriate restraint. 
Over the past two decades, the United States has been mired in a series of wars that have sapped its strength. The human cost of these wars has been staggering: more than 6,900 killed in Afghanistan and Iraq, another 52,000 wounded, and many more who live every day with the invisible scars of war. By financing these conflicts while cutting taxes, the country has essentially charged the costs of war to a collective credit card for future generations to pay, diverting money that could have been invested in critical domestic priorities. This burden will create a drag on the economy that will last for generations. 
The costs have been extraordinarily high, but these wars have not succeeded even on their own terms. We’ve “turned the corner” in Afghanistan so many times that it seems we’re now going in circles. After years of constant war, Afghanistan hardly resembles a functioning state, and both poppy production and the Taliban are again on the rise. The invasion of Iraq destabilized and fragmented the Middle East, creating enormous suffering and precipitating the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people. The region remains a tangled mess—the promise of the Arab Spring crushed, Iran emboldened, Syria devastated, the Islamic State (or ISIS) and its offshoots stubbornly resilient, and a massive refugee crisis threatening to destabilize Europe. Neither military nor civilian policymakers seem capable of defining success, but surely this is not it.
A singular focus on counterterrorism, meanwhile, has dangerously distorted U.S. policies. Here at home, we have allowed an imperial presidency to stretch the Constitution beyond recognition to justify the use of force, with little oversight from Congress. The government has at times defended tactics, such as torture, that are antithetical to American values. Washington has partnered with countries that share neither its goals nor its ideals. Counterterrorism efforts have often undermined other foreign policy priorities, such as reinforcing civilian governance, the rule of law, and human rights abroad. And in some cases, as with U.S. support for Saudi Arabia’s proxy war in Yemen, U.S. policies risk generating even more extremism.
As a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, I have seen up close how 17 years of conflict have degraded equipment, sapped forces’ readiness, and forced the postponement of investment in critical military capabilities. It has distracted Washington from growing dangers in other parts of the world: a long-term struggle for power in Asia, a revanchist Russia that threatens Europe, and looming unrest in the Western Hemisphere, including a collapsing state in Venezuela that threatens to disrupt its neighbors. Would-be rivals, for their part, have watched and learned, and they are hard at work developing technologies and tactics to leapfrog the United States, investing heavily in such areas as robotics, cybersecurity, artificial intelligence, synthetic biology, and quantum computing. China is making massive bets in these and other areas in an effort to surpass the United States as a global technological power. Whether the United States will maintain its edge and harness these technologies for good remains an open question. 
It is the job of the U.S. government to do what is necessary to protect Americans, but it is long past time to start asking what truly makes the country safer—and what does not. Military efforts alone will never fully succeed at ending terrorism, because it is not possible to fight one’s way out of extremism. Some challenges, such as cyberattacks and nuclear proliferation, require much more than a strong military to combat. And other dangers, such as climate change and the spread of infectious diseases, cannot be solved through military action at all. The United States will spend more than $700 billion on defense in the 2018–19 fiscal year alone. That is more in real terms than was spent under President Ronald Reagan during the Cold War and more than all the rest of the country’s discretionary budget put together. But even as Washington spends more and more, U.S. military leaders point out that funding a muscular military without robust diplomacy, economic statecraft, support for civil society, and development assistance only hamstrings American national power and undercuts any military gains. 
As a candidate, Trump promised to bring U.S. troops home. As president, he has sent more troops into Afghanistan. On the campaign trail, Trump claimed he did not want to police the world. As president, he has expanded the United States’ military footprint around the globe, from doubling the number of U.S. air strikes in Somalia to establishing a drone base in Niger. As a candidate, Trump promised to rebuild the military, but as president, he has gutted the diplomatic corps on which the Pentagon relies. He promised to reduce the threat of nuclear proliferation, but he has undermined a successful nuclear deal with Iran, has failed to roll back the North Korean nuclear program, and seems intent on spurring a new nuclear arms race with Russia. 

These actions do not make Americans safer. It’s time to seriously review the country’s military commitments overseas, and that includes bringing U.S. troops home from Afghanistan and Iraq. They have fought with honor, but additional American blood spilled will not halt the violence or result in a functioning democratic government in either place. 


We've noted that several times before.  We've also noted that foreign policy will be an issue in the 2020 election.  How much of an issue, I don't know.  Even I was shocked by (see Wednesday's snapshot) the "CBS NEWS poll showed that the most pressing topic on the mind of Americans was foreign policy and national security.  Respondents ranked that the number one issue (93%) with jobs and economy second (92%) and healthcare third (80%)."

In Iraq, a death continues to garner attention.

So sad, so tragic. The well-known and award-winning Iraqi novelist Alaa Mashthob Abboud was shot dead on 2 February. We strongly condemn this henious assasination.

Nguyễn Minh Tâm (Danlambao) - Nền độc tài của Nicolas Maduro đang được tính từng ngày, hiện tại hầu như các nước Liên Hiệp Châu Âu đã công nhận Juan Guaido là tổng thống lâm thời của Venezuela. Hoa Kỳ, Canada và khối Lima đang tiến hành viện trợ nhân đạo cho nhân dân Venezuela. Điều này chắc chắn nước Venezuela sẽ chuyển sang chế độ dân chủ sau 1 thời gian biểu tình liên tục dậy sóng đòi lật đổ chế độ độc tài phản dân hại nước, chiếm lấy nguồn tài nguyên dầu lửa của đất nước làm túi riêng của mình. Một bài học cho các chế độ độc tài khi chống lại nhân dân và cả thế giới.

Đất nước Venezuela rất khác Việt Nam. Họ có nền kinh tế đứng thứ tư thế giới trước đây, và là 1 quốc gia dân chủ, đa đảng, chỉ từ khi Hugo Chavez và tên tài xế trung thành hiện tại Nicolas Maduro đưa đất nước tiến lên CNXH quốc hữu hóa toàn bộ nền kinh tế quốc gia từ năm 1998, đất nước mới tiến sâu vào lụn bại. Nợ nần chồng chất, dân bới rác mà ăn, lạm phát đến 1.000.000%, bị Trung cộng, Nga lũng đoạn. Vì thế chúng ta đừng thấy lạ lùng là tại sao một đất nước theo CS mà có bầu cử quốc hội, đảng đối lập, Juan Guaido không bị “quần chúng tự phát” hay hồng vệ binh, đấu tố”, quăng cứt, rác vào nhà, và thậm chí là đi xe hai hàng đánh đập ám sát… Nghĩa là người dân có hạt mầm dân chủ từ lâu rồi, từ thuở mới sinh ra, chứ không phải như VN, từ phong kiến rồi Maxit CS nhồi sọ, chưa biết dân chủ là gì, chưa thấy và tôn trọng phản biện đối lập v.v…

Nhưng có một điểm chung trong cuộc CM Venezuela và VN là cách thức lật đổ chế độ độc tài.

Trong bài viết: áp lực đám đông, tôi đã nói rõ, lật đổ chế độ độc tài, không có nghĩa là chúng ta phải giết chết từng thằng CS, tiêu diệt toàn bộ cái đám đảng viên CSVN mà phải làm sao để sức mạnh của đám đông, sức mạnh biểu tình của nhân dân triệt tiêu quyền lực của CS để buộc chúng phải thoái vị, hoặc chấp nhận 1 cuộc bầu cử tự do, bầu cử quốc hội, loại chúng ra khỏi nghị trường, loại ra khỏi quyền lực chúng đang nắm giữ.

Dù bạn có giết chết Nguyễn Phú Trọng hay Nguyễn Xuân Phúc khi sức mạnh nhân dân chưa có, khi thành phần đối lập chưa có thì tình hình cũng không thay đổi mấy, Đảng vẫn có thể chọn thằng nào đó kế vị, quyền lực chẳng thay đổi nhiều. Do đó, lật đổ chế độ độc tài là làm sao để sức mạnh đám đông nổi lên, toàn thể nhân dân đứng dậy cùng một mục tiêu, cùng một ý chí triệt tiêu CS, khi đó chính quyền sẽ yếu xuống và khi bộ máy công quyền, quân đội, CA, mật vụ, lung lay phân tán không còn ủng hộ bợ đỡ cho chế độ, thì chế độ độc tài triệt tiêu.

Với Venezuela, bằng những cuộc biểu tình cả triệu người liên tục, kéo dài suốt mấy năm qua, cùng một khẩu hiệu “Maduro từ chức”, nhưng cho đến khi Juan Guaido tuyên bố là Tổng thống lâm thời cuộc CM Venezuela mới chuyển qua bước ngoặt mới. Và cho đến khi Mỹ tuyên bố phong tỏa tài chính toàn bộ Tập đoàn dầu khí quốc gia (PDVSA) của Venezuela, cộng với việc tướng phi công Francisco Esteban Yanez tuyên bố ủng hộ Juan Guaido nhiều sĩ quan quân đội ngã về phía người dân, chúng ta mới tin chắc rằng chính quyền Maduro sẽ sụp đổ theo thời gian, dù anh có chống đỡ cách nào đi nữa.

Nhưng tại sao đến giờ phút này chính thức Maduro vẫn chưa sụp đổ, bởi vì kinh tế Venezuela khác hoàn toàn VN, khác hoàn toàn các nước độc tài khác. Venezuela có trữ lượng dầu lửa lớn nhất thế giới, mà Maduro đã quốc hữu hóa toàn bộ nền kinh tế, cho nên cả nước sống nhờ vào 95% nguồn dầu lửa đó. Có thể nói Maduro đã “bỏ túi” toàn bộ tài sản quốc gia và ông chia chác nhiều phần cho quân đội kinh doanh nắm giữ, chính vì vậy họ rất trung thành với chế độ, dù nhân dân có biểu tình cách nào đi nữa thì nền kinh tế của chính quyền vẩn chưa ảnh hưởng, nguồn sống của họ vẫn còn duy trì, chế độ không nhờ nhiều vào tiền thuế từ xã hội. Nhưng khi Mỹ và các nước Đồng minh phong tỏa kinh tế ngăn chận tẩu tán tài sản và các nước trên thế giới ủng hộ nhân dân Venezuela thì sự tồn tại của chế độ độc tài chỉ còn lây lất, tính từng giờ, từng ngày. Ở đây, chúng ta không bàn về việc Trung cộng hay Nga có nhảy vào hay không, tôi tin rằng chuyện này rất khó xảy ra. 

Như vậy, nguyên tắc để lật đổ chế độ độc tài, đầu tiên là làm sao để người dân vượt qua sợ hãi đứng lên, biểu tình liên tục, cùng một quyết tâm thay đổi xã hội. Đó là sức mạnh duy nhất của người dân. Tiếp theo, được thế giới ủng hộ, thiếu yếu tố này không có cuộc CM nào thành công cả. Trong và ngoài nước cùng một ý chí thay đổi chế độ mới tạo nên sức mạnh thật sự và chính quyền độc tài mới bị cô lập trên thị trường quốc tế, làm suy yếu nền kinh tế, làm mất nguồn thu nhập nuôi dưỡng chế độ. Tiếp theo, từ những sức mạnh đó, chính quyền, quân đội, công an, bộ máy trung thành với chế độ mới rệu rã, hoang mang tâm lý sợ hãi phân mãnh, bất an, bỏ chạy, quay đầu về với nhân dân làm sụp đổ chế độ độc tài. Nghĩa là, có đủ 3 yếu tố này, chế độ độc tài mới sụp đổ.

Với Việt Nam cũng vậy, chỉ khi nào người dân vượt qua sợ hãi chịu đứng lên, thế giới ủng hộ, là bước đầu để thành công. Thành phần CA, mật vụ CS chỉ là phường đầu trâu mặt ngựa, bám đảng kiếm ăn, đổi màu chạy trước nên không quan trọng, nhưng 95% chính quyền VN đã lọt vào tay Hán nô Tàu cộng cho nên chỉ khi nào Trung cộng rung rinh sắp sụp đổ, CMVN mới thành công.

Đi theo những nguyên lý trên, chúng ta hãy khảo sát cách thức Tổng thống Donald Trump tấn công Trung cộng như thế nào?. Ông cũng đi theo 3 bước này.

Bước 1: Làm suy yếu Trung cộng, làm suy yếu tất cả những hệ thống chống đỡ để nó tồn tại. 

Đầu tiên là chiến tranh thương mại. Áp thuế để cân bằng thâm hụt mậu dịch, ra nhiều hiệp định để bảo hộ mậu dịch và kêu gọi các công ty rút vốn nhà máy ra khỏi Trung cộng, làm cho thị trường chứng khoán Trung Cộng lao dốc và nền kinh tế suy yếu thấy rõ. Tấn công vào Cty Huawei, Cty nhà nước núp bóng tư nhân bộ não của Tàu cộng. Trump đẩy mạnh tài sản sở hữu trí tuệ, công tác tình báo, gián điệp mạng, an ninh quốc gia để cả thế giới tẩy chay làm kiệt quệ mấy công ty viễn thông 5G của Trung cộng. Có thể nói trên mặt trận thương mại Donald Trump đã thành công, đến nỗi Tập Cận Bình xin diện kiến trước ngày 1/3 ngày chấm dứt đình chiến, nhưng Trump cũng không thèm gặp. Thật khó dự đoán, không biết Trump có áp thuế 25% lên 267 tỷ hàng hóa còn lại hay không? Bởi, với cách thức tấn công hiện tại, Trump đã làm Trung cộng điêu đứng rồi, nếu áp thuế tiếp tục, dồn Tập Cận Bình vào chân tường, có thể hàng nông sản và nhiều mặt hàng khác của Mỹ sẽ bị ảnh hưởng, cho nên theo tôi, nếu Tập chịu nhượng bộ về cân bằng thâm hụt mậu dịch, và một phần nào đó về ăn cắp bản quyền sở hữu trí tuệ thì việc không áp thuế tiếp tục có nhiều phần lợi hơn cho Hoa Kỳ.

Bởi, cuộc chiến kinh tế này, Trump cũng thừa biết, chỉ làm suy yếu Trung cộng, chứ không thế nào tiêu diệt được nó, muốn thấy hiệu quả thật sự phải sau 5-10 năm, cho nên phải tấn công trên tất cả mọi mặt. 

Về phần quân sự ở Biển Đông, như nhiều lần chúng tôi đã nói, Biển Đông chỉ có thể gầm gừ và khiêu khích, không thể làm gì khác hơn. 

Bước 2: Tấn công và phá hủy hệ thống chống đỡ đó.

Theo tôi, việc đứng lên tự phong của Tổng thống Juan Guaido phải có sự tiếp tay của Hoa Kỳ, bởi vì nó hợp hiến và được dàn nội các của Trump ủng hộ ngay từ đầu rất cấp thời và hiệu quả. Từng diễn biến xảy ra ở Venezuela có một mối tương quan mật thiết nào đó với Hoa Kỳ? Do đó có thể nói, việc Venezuela thành công phải chăng là tiến trình phá vỡ từng nhánh cây, bứng từng gốc bự, chặc đứt từng rễ nhỏ của Trump để tiêu diệt Trung cộng. Bởi Venezuela là nguồn cung cung dầu lửa chính cho Trung cộng. Ngoài chiến tranh thương mại, gián điệp mạng, Trump đã chọn giải pháp cắt đứt nguồn cung ứng dầu lửa và khí đốt cho đất nước này. Dù tổng thống lâm thời Juan Guaido tuyên bố vẫn tiếp tục các hợp đồng mà quốc hội đã thông qua và trả khoảng nợ 60 tỷ dolla mà Venezuela đã nợ Trung cộng để xoa dịu tình hình, nhưng trước mắt Venezuela cũng làm cho Tập cận Bình xay xẩm, mất đi một chí cốt cùng hội cùng thuyền và tương lai đầy những bất trắc khi Juan Guaido xóa bỏ chế độ độc tài, bắt tay với các nước dân chủ, mà Mỹ là nước lọc dầu thô cho Venezuela, cho nên, chắc chắn nguồn dầu lửa của Trung cộng phải bị động khó khăn hơn trước.

Trong khi đó, tình hình Trung đông, do Tết Nguyên đán, việc xây bức tường biên giới, và bài diễn văn thông điệp đầu năm của Tổng thống Trump mà chúng ta quên đi bản tin quan trọng khác. Zalmay Khalilzad,đã thông báo Mỹ sẽ rút toàn bộ binh lính khỏi Afghanistan trong vòng 18 tháng?

http://soha.vn/thoa-thuan-my-taliban-tu-mot-to-chuc-khung-bo-tro-thanh-doi-tac-hoa-binh-cua-my-20190129144309328rf20190129144309328.htm

Việc gì đã xảy ra?? Không có việc gì cả, không có chiến sự, không có tổn thất, lực lượng Taliban, IS vẫn còn đó, đang suy yếu nhưng vẫn chiếm giữ 60% lãnh thổ Afganistan, vậy hà cớ gì, hôm trước thông báo rút 7000 quân cùng 2000 quân ở Syria, hôm nay lại thông báo triệt thoái quân toàn bộ. Và trong thời gian tới, phiến quân Hồi giáo Taliban có thể tham gia vào đời sống chính trị của đất nước này. Có thể ứng cử vào chức vụ tổng thống?? Phải chăng có những thỏa thuận ngầm mà chúng ta không thể biết? Tại sao nội các Donald Trump lại chấp nhận một sự nhún nhường đến như vậy? Gần đây Trump cũng kêu gọi các Công ty hãy đầu tư vào Pakistan, Nam Á, Trung á để cải thiện môi trường chính trị khu vực này?

Phải chăng, Mỹ đang bắt tay với phiến quân Hồi giáo Taliban hay khủng bố Hồi giáo cực đoan IS để tấn công Trung cộng và giúp họ xây dựng một Nhà nước Hồi giáo Afghanistan như chúng tôi đã phân tích ở bài viết trước: Tiêu diệt Trung cộng. Chỉ có giải pháp đánh đổi này, Mỹ mới chấp nhận lùi bước đến như vậy, trong khi không có lý do gì để Mỹ phải rút quân cả. Nhớ rằng Hồi giáo Taliban theo dòng Shunni, (cùng với người Duy Ngô Nhĩ), được Pakistan hậu thuẫn từ những ngày đầu, và Pakistan, Afghanistan có đường biên giới tiếp giáp với Tây Tạng và Tân Cương bên Trung Quốc, trong khi đó, người Hồi ở Iran hầu hết theo dòng Shiite, Trump lại cấm vận triệt để và còn tăng cường thêm binh lính ở Iraq để kiểm soát thêm tình hình Iran. Phải chăng kế hoạch cắt đứt mọi nguồn cung cấp khí đốt cho Trung cộng đã dần lộ diện. Iran luôn luôn bị cấm vận. Bây giờ hướng đến là các ống dẫn dầu ở Tân Cương. (Venezuela đã và đang thoi thóp)

Như vậy trong năm nay 2019, Đài Loan sẽ độc lập - tuy nó không bợ đỡ cho Tàu cộng tồn tại, nhưng Đài Loan thất thủ sẽ lột toàn bộ mặt nạ con hổ giấy cho cả thế giới nhận biết và nó phá hủy toàn bộ cấu trúc chính danh của Trung cộng - hay Tân Cương có khủng bố và dân tộc Duy Ngô Nhĩ, Tây Tạng nỗi lên sẽ là bước tiếp theo trong mục đích tiêu diệt Tàu cộng của Donald Trump. Bởi vì, chỉ duy nhất con đường Tân Cương là có thể giựt sập hệ thống bợ đỡ của Trung cộng. 

Bước 3: Nhân dân các nước nhỏ vùng lên.

Quay trở lại Bắc Hàn. Mọi thỏa thuận của Donlad Trump và Kim Jong Un chỉ có giá trị trong nhiệm kỳ đầu của Trump không thể nào qua nhiệm kỳ 2, cho nên chỉ có thư tay, thỏa thuận miệng chứ chưa có Hiệp ước nào được ký kết, và kỳ gặp sắp tới 27-28/2 ở Hà nội cũng vậy, “chúng tôi đã đạt được những điều tốt đẹp” chứ chẳng có một ý tưởng nào khác. Do đó Trump phải diệt hoặc thấy Trung cộng hấp hối trước 2020, chứ không thì Bắc Hàn lật kèo. 

Và Donald Trump sẽ dành món quà này cho các nước nhỏ ra tay.

Không cần nói nhiều các bạn cũng hiểu rồi, nhân dân Trung Quốc, Việt Nam, Hong Kong, Tân Cương Tây Tạng chia 5 xẻ 7 Trung Quốc và biết đâu, Bắc Hàn cũng có 1 phần trong đó.

Tại sao Mỹ phải diệt Trung cộng? Bởi vì trên thế giới này, Trung cộng là quốc gia duy nhất có thể soán ngôi Mỹ, mặc dù thực lực hiện tại Trung cộng chưa thể qua mặt Mỹ, nhưng với lợi thế về đời sống công nghệ số, tương lai Trung Quốc thống lĩnh thế giới về không gian mạng là chuyện có thể. Hãy nhìn Liên minh Châu Âu các cường quốc thế giới về KHKT thời điện tử nhưng không mạnh về công nghệ thời điện toán, cho nên họ già nua và có vẻ lạc hậu với đà tăng trường hiện đại. Ngày xưa Mông cổ làm bá chủ Á-Âu chỉ vì vung kiếm trên lưng ngựa, nhưng khi Châu Âu chế tạo ra những cây súng trường đầu tiên thì Mông cổ sụp đổ, như vậy đừng có nói rằng quốc gia nào đó sẽ tồn tại mãi mãi. Sự phát triển của KHKT sẽ quyết định sự tồn tại của một quốc gia. Hiện tại Hoa Kỳ chỉ hơn Trung Cộng về sản xuất những con Chip, nếu Hoa Kỳ không nhìn ra vấn đề thì Trung cộng sẽ qua mặt và xuất khẩu mô hình Tư bản-Độc tài 2025 đi khắp thế giới. Thật là một đại họa cho thế giới?? Hãy cảm ơn Trump và chắc chắn Trung cộng sẽ bị tiêu diệt trong thời gian tới.
