SOCIALISM – Venezuela – And The US Election…

The Democrat candidates for President have come out of the woodwork brandishing  golden torches signifying their ability to set the world on fire!   Within days, the wind blew out the flame, the media hunkered into silence, and the candidates retreated to their respective estates licking their self ascribed wounds while attempting to quell their deflated ego’s which had been  quite literally – scorched.  OUCH!

Kamala Harris was ablaze as she boldly announced her rigor of extreme Socialism only to find that all her fellow Democrat candidates had been cued with the same dispensary of spew – and The People were laughing.   They mocked the agenda that had no platform, while the media vainly attempted to re-spin the fallen chaos of Socialism that spiraled Venezuela into oblivion and call it ‘bad luck’.   Spurred into action, the MSM regurgitated article after article likely provided by the cabal as they sought to claim that socialism had nothing to do with the economic roil in Venezuela, it was simply a fluke and could happen to any country…

To support that spin, they even instituted a new and improved interim President to re-harness Venezuela into glory and fuel the belief that the problem was just – Maduro.   As such, the cabal instituted a new Socialist, Globalist to prove their point, Juan Guiado.   Reminiscent of Justin Trudeau, Guiado is backed by the UN, the EU Commission, France, UK, and Germany, in addition to the US, Japan, and a host of come aboards.   Certainly Maduro and his predecessor, Chavez, drove Venezuela into poverty, no one discounts that fact, but Guiado is no different, except that unlike his predecessors he is a prop of The Cabal.  

Guiado’s party, Popular Will, is an adjunct of Socialist International, a major European political party whose current president is the former PM of Greece, George Papandreou who resigned as PM as a result of the Greek debt crisis… and founded the Movement of Democratic Socialists whose ideology is pro-European.

It thus becomes clear that Guiado is a puppet of the European Socialists flanked by the banking cabal and George Soros.  And Venezuela is subjected to a Euro Coup.

But this Venezuelan Socialist ideology fell on its face in the US with the Far Left Democrat candidates outing themselves as hailing from that platform.   Raising their torches, like the good little minions they are, the tactic imploded.   And as they snivel in their dungeons waiting to be rebranded, remolded, and recreated, out steps Starbuck’s CEO, Howard Schultz.

While Schultz is a Democrat, having endorsed Hillary for President, he is potentially running as an Independent. Why?   Because it has become the largest US party holding 42% of the popular vote and because it distances him from the Socialists.

The media has focused largely on the millennial preference for Socialism, throwing out statistics ranging from 1/3 to ½, but their voter turnout is roughly 50% with about 55% of those supporting a Democrat candidate.   Socialism is NOT the force.   And the Democrats candidates were fooled into a failing platform.   Or perhaps they were a distraction…

Schultz is definitely not one to fear equations of success having amassed his own fortune from pure grit and is now speculated to be worth well over $3 billion.    While he has claimed he is very much against Trump, he has declined to say why, and he has yet to define a specific political platform from which he may run other than to say he believes reducing the national debt is his number one priority and that the O’Casio/Kamala Warren socialist ideals are basically – stupid.   It could be that Schultz is the Democrat version of Trump and The Cabal is testing his ability to garner numbers.

Controversy spins around him as Democrats are concerned he would split the votes and thus give the election to Trump.   But what they fail to understand is that a Socialist Democrat – is a split, and outside of the millennial population, reality would find few supporters and more than a few enemies within the corporate and high net wealth world of elite who have no intention of forking over 70% of their income.

While the Democrat’s appear to be screaming, ‘don’t do it’, any longer distractions are the game, and Schultz may be the new game in town much to the chagrin of the distractions.   With 9 Democrats already lining up to run in the 2020 election – they will need to destroy each other before one can rise.   Given Schultz is slated to run as an Independent, he will be immune from these initial mudballs as the Democrats slay their own.   And the mud she will sling given none of these diehards are remotely squeaky clean.

Kamala is already giving her rendition of Porky Pig regarding Medicare for all.   A few of the runners are ‘former mayors’ with absolutely no qualifying experience in any realm of anything.   Delaney is calling for ‘international tax reform’ – I guess he thinks being President means he is the global head honcho.   Kirsten Gillibrand is running as a ‘young mom’.   Yang believes in a universal income… I thought that was called Welfare?   Booker thinks that his record of backing liberal policies makes him the perfect candidate.   And then there remain in the wings the remnants: Biden, Sanders, Beto, Kasich, and the naysayer – Michelle whose claim to fame includes such notable accomplishments as being female, being black, and spending 8 years in the White House launching a failed organization to combat child obesity.

At least Schultz has charisma and the brassiness of a Donald.   Unfortunately, it would seem he has no policies. Personally, I think it would be quite lovely to see a skew in the Democrat Party vote given their divine assault on our Constitution and our national security. We shall see.

VENEZUELA: The Soros Cabal Moves In

The Venezuelan crisis has reached its maze of tentacles into the US polarizing political opinions and creating riffs among previously affirmed buddies and friends.  Why?  Because of the fear of war, coup, regime change, and another Syria.  I agree that the US should not plunge into another Syria, but I also understand that the less than intellectual US media provide absolute drivel when it comes to factual information regarding the Venezuela crisis.  And so, people are turning to Facebook for their analysis and trolls for their insight.  A sad evolution to be sure.

On the ground in Venezuela, the analysis of events is a lot less confusing:

Maduro is corrupt.  No one disagrees.  He has a net worth of somewhere between $2 million and $295 million, and was paid $96 million in 2018.  Even the mathematically challenged can read this one.   The man’s wealth is said to have occurred because he ‘made smart stock investments’.   Hopefully this statement too is obvious.  In essence, Maduro bilked his country, sent it plummeting into the abyss of abject economic chaos wherein people were eating their dogs and eating the prolific abundance of rats to survive.  He has now essentially invoked martial law in order to sustain a power hold as the people revolt.

For the past few years emigration to neighboring countries has been massive, by 2018 10% of the population had left with an additional 57% wanting to leave.   They have nothing.  90% live in abject poverty.  Maduro’s response was to say that there was no crisis, everything was just fine…

Because Venezuela is a Socialist/Communist government, and many industries are nationalized, competition was ineffective.  Between 1999 and 2016, two thirds of all companies in Venezuela left. Unemployment is now reaching 50% and inflation is tipping 500%, while oil revenue is nearly nonexistent compared to historic revenues.  There are no funds to run a country, so Maduro’s only solution – divert those remaining revenues to – Maduro.

Because this is a point-by-point example of failed Socialism, the US Media chose to rephrase it so as to continue to support the rising Socialist ideology in the US.  Ocasio-Cortez and Kamala Harris are epitomizing this shift as they call for a restructuring of the Democrat Party into Socialist Democracy – much like the collapsing countries in the EU; Norway, Sweden, Finland, etc…

Enter Juan Guaido.  He has invoked himself as interim or temporary President of Venezuela to bridge between an ousted Maduro and a new election.   Guaido is himself a member of the Popular Will Party which is – “Socialist”, but distances itself from Chavez Socialism and calls itself a human rights socialist…party that supports globalization.

China has at stake $50 billion in loans and investments it has made over the last decade to Venezuela.  Russia has at risk roughly $6 billion in investments with Venezuela.   Trump just initiated sanctions against Venezuela’s government run oil company CITGO.  What these sanctions do is protect any revenues generated from the sale of their inventory and production of gas by requiring that the money be placed in a sort of trust account that Maduro has no control over.

In essence, what the MSM is not understanding is that this move actually protects both China and Russia’s investments and creates a void for Maduro to continue to siphon off the revenue for his own offshore accounts.

The supposed recognition of Guaido is unimportant in that vein.   He is a globalist, likely propped up by Soros and reminiscent of Trudeau and Macron in his supposed ‘youth appeal’.

The European countries supporting Guaido include the Soros Cabal:  France, Germany, Belgium, UK and Spain.   Other countries recognize Guaido as an interim given the Maduro circumstances: Japan, US, Australia, Israel and Canada   Russia and China are adamantly opposed because Guaido is likely a Soros puppet and his takeover of the country would further alienate their outstanding monetary interests.  The MSM is attempting to spin that Guaido is US backed, a Trump puppet, in order to deflect the fact that as a Globalist, he is obviously in the Soros Cabal.  The memes being parlayed from the likes of;  Global Research, David Icke, The Guardian, and a host of liberal outlets.

The Center For Strategic And International Studies has approved of Guaido stating that Venezuela’s assets should be transferred to the control of either the UN or the Catholic Church.   That itself should set off alarms!   John Hamre, CEO for CSIS, was former Deputy Secretary of Defense under Bill Clinton, worked on the Obama transition team and is Chairman of the Defense Policy Board.  The current list of Board members of DPB reads like a who’s who of Swampland:  Richard Danzig, Henry Kissinger, William Perry, Robert Kaplan, Stephen Biddle, Robert Gallucci, etc…

In other words, The Cabal is and has been pushing for control of Venezuela for some time. Their puppet, Capriles, did not make the cut as intended, and like Syria, Venezuela has assets they want, and alignments they want severed.   It is not a US coup.   It is a Cabal coup and Maduro is not unlike Gaddafi or Assad.  Just another nonrelevant to be ejected.

Maduro is now asking to talk to Trump – likely to explain the choice… Cabal or Maduro.

Socialism In The US House…takes hold

With the Democrat House filing into DC they bring with them a new host of Socialists.  And one might gasp except that in 2010 the Socialist Party released a list of 70 Congressional Democrats who were also members of the Socialist Party of America.   They endorsed none other than John Kerry and Obama.  In the latest election 15 Socialists were elected to office across the US.  While the numbers may seem small from a percentage standpoint, they do reveal an evolution.   The EU Commission is comprised of Socialists, the UN is run by Social Democrats, and still, despite the collapse of Venezuela, the push continues.

In every Socialist state, the first death is that of the Middle Class.   Those who have much, have more, and those who had nothing, have something.   The fact that those who had nothing was a high percentage is what keeps the power operating.  Until it collapses.

And so the question arises, why does it collapse?

Opinion pieces are rampant in this discussion, most recently Bloomberg’s op-ed attempted to sway the discussion of Venezuela, and instead highlight the vast progress and effectiveness of Bolivia’s Socialist President, Morales.    The opinion piece claims there is a right way and a wrong way to do Socialism and lists Venezuela as the wrong way compared to Bolivia as the right way.  Noah Smith, the author of the piece bills himself as a neoliberal on his Twitter status.

But is Bolivia really a ‘right’ way, or is the author simply attempting to validate Socialism?

Bolivia’s President Morales continues to win re-election, not because his policies are good for Bolivia, but because he has given something to a population that had nothing, and virtually eliminated the Middle Class in the process.  He is elected by the poor, the 40% of the population living below poverty line.   Despite being given vast free assistance from Cuba and Brazil, Bolivia continues to rank in the bottom bowels of South America’s economy, ranked just above Venezuela.  Somehow Noah Smith didn’t read that far.

Bloomberg’s, Smith, cites the fact that they have GDP growth… and makes the claim that illiteracy has been eradicated.  Unemployment is made up of unskilled laborers, and skilled workers are in high shortage.  Corruption is rampant, a dictatorial rule is leveraged, while only 40% of the youth population continue school after the 4thgrade, and 20% enter secondary school, UNESCO has declared the country to be wholly literate.   In case you are math challenged, UNESCO warns that the rate can not be higher than 100%…   Unlike Florida which typically allows upwards of 140% of the population to vote.   I digress.

In terms of World Ranking – Bolivia is followed by Zimbabwe.

Not exactly a stellar record to use in support of Socialism.

The splintering and demise of the Republican and Democrat Parties is parlayed.

While Noah Smith argues that Socialism didn’t destroy Venezuela, hyperinflation did, he rather bizarrely refuses to acknowledge what caused ‘hyperinflation’.   It is humorous to note that Venezuela is referred to as the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela – it followed the exact same ideologies and principles as Morales does now in Bolivia.  The Bolivarian Revolution in 1999 ushered in Chavez as the savior of the Republic.  He vied for ‘socialism or death’.   Chavez government was called the Bolivarian government.  He created a new Constitution – as did Morales.  They support social welfare, social property, communes, universal healthcare, and of course, redistribution of wealth.

The only difference between Bolivia and Venezuela is that Chavez introduced Socialist policies beginning in 1999, Morales took office in 2006, Bolivia simply hasn’t reached the same crescendo – yet.

While the Soviet Union took decades to rise from the ashes of it’s socialist/communist rule instituted by the Bolsheviks, Venezuela and Bolivia don’t have the machismo or brute intellect to know how to recreate failing economics despite being rich in natural resources.  Reading of the demise of Venezuela, it reads as a static version of Bolivia’s current crisis and stagnation – crime rates soaring, riots, protests, inability to redirect industry from oil, vast resources left untapped, education crisis, etc…

Despite Noah Smith attempting to frame Socialism as simply mishandled, he has shown that his own understanding is rather pathetic.    But what he isn’t noticing is the fact that while both ruling parties in the US are crumbling, fracturing, and called out as failures (thank you Romney), the evolution of Socialism historically appears as a saving solution only to completely destroy the country so relegated – from within.

The EU is only now waking up to their own demise promulgated by the Socialist/Communist regimes of Merkel, Macron, and May.  Sweden is Falling faster than the Twin Towers, and Norway is a close second.   But then, that is the plan…

We The People, have that authority.  It is a choice.
