Caracas on Knife-Edge as
Maduro Protesters Erect Barricades

Bloomberg, by Andrew Rosati and Fabiola Zerpa

Original Article

Posted By:FlyRight, 4/21/2017 7:40:35 AM

Caracas faced another tense day after massive protests against Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, with barricades of trash and debris in the streets, shuttered businesses and sporadic blossoms of tear gas. Demonstrators take a fallen tree from a truck to use it as a barricade during a protest in Caracas on April 20. A coalition of opposition parties called for continued demonstrations Thursday like those the previous day in the capital and major cities. Hundreds of thousands turned out to rally against Maduro’s grip on the country’s institutions, and his policies that have left the economy in tatters. Clashes between protesters, security forces

Barricades, huh? That´s always a hopeful sign. I wonder if they´re oiling up a guillotine as well.

These "folks" aren´t very patriotic, are they?
Shouldn´t they be preparing for Earth Day tomorrow?

"Knife edge", eh?

Maybe because Maduro disarmed the populace, except for his supporters and thugs?

This "to the barricades" notion is romantic bs. They are opening the door to a bloodbath. The government will bait and prod the crowd into what it will claim was a riot--after they´ve fixed it. Crowd control is one of the few things fascists do very well; mobs are their stock and trade.

Later, after they´ve studied and identified the people recorded in their surveillance measures during these protests will be far worse.

It´s time to get out of the street. The base of the regime is it´s low-level operatives--the ones who distribute the goodies and report the opposition. That´s where they´re vulnerable.

There is a bright side: Maduro just robbed Obama-motors. You may or may not have a new fried, but Maduro definitely has a new enemy.

Venezuela is a real life cautionary tale, and IF we had objective media and a political party focused on individual liberty the story that the socialist/collectivist policies the Democrats want to foist on us are exactly what leads to a living hell like Venezuela would be spread far and wide throughout the land. But instead our media is almost entirely leftist propaganda, and the feckless Republican "leadership" is focused on keeping their jobs and pleasing the Chamber of Commerce.

Then the weapon of the unarmed citizens will be the Molotov cocktails, then the police will begin with the barrages of bird shot blinding thousands and then the citizens, using long hidden hunting rifgles will try to defend themselves, then the police will release the thugs - the Brute Squads recruited out of the prisons, who rush about to beat people to death. Then the real slaughter- the last weapon the people have will be their own bodies laying the the street. All revolutions must have blood and innocent people laying dead int he streets. But, not just some blood- but, rivers of it. soon, the "cops" will realize, they can´t keep doing this and turn on the government. At last, Maduro will flee in his helicopter to take refuge in some other dictator´s hell hole.

It always goes like that, dosen´t it? Freedom is never free.

This is what happens when people get to vote themselves lots of free stuff and the government runs out of other peoples money. The media is too in the tank for socialism to throw this in the left´s face. Too bad. There are some great lessons here for all the potheads living in mom´s basement.

Barricaes and piles of debris are great weapons but a gun is just SO much easier to carry.

Bill Cosby and the Year of the Hypocrite

After 52 hours of jury deliberation, the case against Bill Cosby on charges of drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand in 2004 ended on Saturday in a mistrial. But at least the public verdict on Mr. Cosby is clear: He will be remembered as a very low sort of hypocrite — the self-styled exemplar of conservative family values exposed as a sexual predator. This is an old story, with plenty of antecedents in religion and politics. What’s chiefly new is that this is now a media story, as conservative power has moved from the pulpit and the pedestal to the TV

At an Axios event this week in Washington D.C., veteran journalist Bob Woodward had a message for the media: relax and listen more when covering the Trump White House. The Washington Post editor, who covered the Watergate scandal under the Nixon White House, added that President Trump’s firing of James Comey from the FBI is not the same thing (via The Hill):Legendary reporter Bob Woodward urged reporters this week to "calm it down and listen more" when covering the Trump White House.Woodward also cautioned those in the media broaching Watergate and impeachment in speaking about investigations into the Trump campaign

WASHINGTON — The House Intelligence Committee will issue subpoenas to Michael T. Flynn, President Trump’s first national security adviser, the committee’s senior Democrat said on Wednesday, escalating Mr. Flynn’s troubles with Congress.The Democrat, Representative Adam B. Schiff of California, said Mr. Flynn had declined the panel’s request for documents and an interview as part of its investigation into Russian meddling in last year’s election.“Those subpoenas will be designed to maximize our chance of getting the information that we need,” Mr. Schiff told reporters during a breakfast hosted by The Christian Science Monitor. “And I think we need to use whatever

VATICAN CITY — President Donald Trump and Pope Francis, two leaders with contrasting styles and differing worldviews, met at the Vatican City on Wednesday, setting aside their previous clashes to broadcast a tone of peace for an audience around the globe. Trump, midway through his grueling nine-day maiden international journey, called upon the pontiff at the Vatican early Wednesday where the two had a private 30-minute meeting laden with religious symbolism and ancient protocol. The president, accompanied by his wife and several aides, arrived at the Vatican just after 8 a.m. local time. The president greeted Francis in Sala del Tronetto,

President Donald Trump asked two of the nation’s top intelligence officials in March to help him push back against an FBI investigation into possible coordination between his campaign and the Russian government, according to current and former officials.Trump made separate appeals to the director of national intelligence, Daniel Coats, and to Adm. Michael Rogers, the director of the National Security Agency, urging them to publicly deny the existence of any evidence of collusion during the 2016 election. Coats and Rogers refused to comply with the requests, which they both deemed to be inappropriate, according to two current and two former officials,

After Reddit users managed to track down the accounts on the site belonging to murdered DNC staffer Seth Rich, someone began editing and deleting his comments. While it is unclear if someone is actually logged in and meddling with his account, or if Reddit took it upon themselves to remove identifying information about someone who is no longer living — it is still an odd occurrence.Reddit users first located Rich’s main account, ‘MeGrimlock4’, where Rich had posted looking for his parent’s lost dog and left his email address.

The Washington Post has published a “blind item” White House report — where not only its sources but the subject of the article is anonymous. Using “people familiar with the matter” as sources, the Post’s Devlin Barrett and Matt Zapotosky report that the investigation into the Trump campaign and its connections to Russia “has identified a current White House official as a significant person of interest, showing that the probe is reaching the highest levels of government.” The person is a senior White House adviser “close to the president,” but the unnamed sources would not identify that official, the Post reported.

MISSISSAUGA, Ont. -- Video of a woman demanding for her son to be seen by a "white doctor" at a walk-in clinic in Ontario has gone viral. CTV Toronto reports the four-minute argument was recorded by a patient in the waiting room at the Rapid Access to Medical Specialists clinic on Sunday. In the video, an employee is heard explaining to the woman that a "white doctor" would not be available until 4 p.m. to see her child.

Jon Ossoff was on a trajectory to defeat Karen Handel narrowly, poised to deliver a humiliating blow to the White House in a race billed as a referendum of Donald Trump’s early months in office. Then the Republican voters in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District unexpectedly showed up in droves. Pollsters say sky-high turnout drove Handel, the GOP nominee, to a nearly 4-point victory on Tuesday, despite most pre-election surveys showing Ossoff with a small-but-shrinking lead. Mathematically, a 4-point loss for a Democratic House candidate in a district that has traditionally elected Republicans by wide margins is an encouraging result for

(Facebook) - Former President Barack Obama took to Facebook to ask Republicans to reconsider their efforts to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, also known as ObamaCare. "I recognize that repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act has become a core tenet of the Republican Party," Obama wrote. "Still, I hope that our senators, many of whom I know well, step back and measure what’s really at stake, and consider that the rationale for action, on health care or any other issue, must be something more than simply undoing something that Democrats did." He argued that the Republican health care bill

A city on Mars with a million inhabitants could be achievable within 50 years, the space entrepreneur Elon Musk has forecast, as he laid out plans to turn mankind into a multi-planetary species. The SpaceX founder warned that humans would need to venture away from Earth to avoid a ‘Doomsday event’ and our ‘eventual extinction.’ But he said that a huge Martian city could be established this century, which would not just be an outpost, but a fully functioning society with ‘iron foundries and pizza joints.’

Ed Morrissey may be on vacation but he’s still keeping his ear to the door of American politics. He popped up on Twitter this morning, searching for his dictionary to look up the definition of “chutzpah.” The reason for his apparent confusion was a rather off-putting interview with Georgia-06 Democratic candidate Jon Ossoff conducted by NPR’s Rachel Martin. The subject of the massive, record-breaking amount of cash dumped into this race couldn’t be avoided, so Martin asked Ossoff to weigh in. He did so, but his take on the subject rang a bit hollow to say the least. (Emphasis added

Despite receiving an invitation to meet with President Trump, members of the Congressional Black Caucus have reportedly chosen to decline, per Politico. Both Trump and the Congressional Black Caucus met in March to discuss issues important to CBC members, yet many in the Caucus felt as if little to no progress has been made since that meeting three months ago and that any subsequent meeting would be merely lip service. One Democratic aide illustrated the thinking of some in the Congressional Black Caucus saying, “No one wants to be a co-star on the reality show.” Former “Apprentice” star Omarosa Manigault,

In a year that he would like to forget, which included his acrimonious divorce to Amber Heard, Johnny Depp appeared at a Q&A at the new Cinemageddon stage at Glastonbury. Introducing his 2004 film The Libertine, about a 17th-century poet who notoriously drank himself to an early death, the 54-year-old chose to discuss American politics. "I think [Donald] Trump needs help," he said. "There are a lot of dark places he could go."
