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.

Saturday marks President Trump’s 100th day in office, and to celebrate the occasion he got a bit too candid in an Oval Office interview with Reuters. Obviously certain elements of being president are pretty fun, but President Trump has discovered that it isn’t all playing with trucks and pressing a button that makes Cokes appear. Sometimes there’s work to be done, and as it turns out being leader of the free world is a lot harder than running a fake university and playing a caricature of a rich person on TV.“I loved my previous life.

PARIS -- French voters shut out the political mainstream from the presidency for the first time in modern history, and on Monday found themselves being courted for the runoff election between populist Marine Le Pen and centrist Emmanuel Macron.French politicians on the moderate left and right, including the Socialist and Republicans party losers in Sunday´s vote, immediately urged voters to block Le Pen´s path to power in the May 7 contest.Voters narrowed the presidential field from 11 to two. Both that vote and the May 7 runoff are widely seen as a litmus test for the populist wave that

Comey Tried to Shield the F.B.I. From Politics.
Then He Shaped an Election.
New York Times, by Matt Apuzzo*    Original Article
Posted By: FlyRight- 4/23/2017 8:13:50 AM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON — The day before he upended the 2016 election, James B. Comey, the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, summoned agents and lawyers to his conference room. They had been debating all day, and it was time for a decision. Mr. Comey’s plan was to tell Congress that the F.B.I. had received new evidence and was reopening its investigation into Hillary Clinton, the presidential front-runner. The move would violate the policies of an agency that does not reveal its investigations or do anything that may influence an election. But Mr. Comey had declared the case closed, and he believed

   

 

  


 
Bill O’Reilly’s Nostalgia Factor

Before there was Trump, there was O’Reilly’s populism infused with a New York sensibility. Dear Reader (I said “reader.” This will not be the venue for Caitlyn Jenner’s nude debut.), Bill O’Reilly is leaving Fox, and I can’t say I’ll miss him. I don’t mean that to sound too harsh (not that he much cared about sounding too harsh). The truth is I almost never watched his show, unless it was on someplace where I didn’t have control of the remote. That’s not quite the slight it may seem to be either. My job often makes me feel like Lucy

Taliban fighters dressed in military uniforms attacked an army base in northern Afghanistan, killing or wounding more than 100 soldiers, authorities said Saturday.The updated number of specific soldiers killed or wounded in the attack Friday was not immediately clear. The Afghan ministry of defense said it will provide a breakdown later Saturday. Earlier Friday, Qahar Araam, an army spokesman, said at least eight soldiers died. At the time of attack, security forces were observing Friday prayers. The militants engaged in a six-hour battle with soldiers that left five fighters dead, he said.

So how much of our money did Obama ship to the terrorist regime in Iran? We hear $150 billion. We are not sure. Could be a dollar less, a dollar more. We’ll never know for sure. That’s because his entire administration operated in the dark. That’s how he governed and that’s how he got himself elected, in lies and in stealth, and the news media did the rest. They covered for him. They let him get away with murder – and in this case, that is not a cliché, it’s fact. Today, in eye-popping news, we learn, from the New York Post via

He has floated some conspiracy theories for years, but now President Donald Trump will get to play a crucial role in the long-running saga over the government´s Kennedy assassination records. The 1992 JFK Assassination Records Collection Act, signed by President George H.W. Bush, set a 25-year timetable for declassification of assassination records dealing with President Kennedy. The law set up a single collection of records at the National Archives, and set up a process for declassification. The law required the release of all government records dealing with the assassination within 25 years – with the exception of those the president certifies for

Baltimore’s mayor asked the FBI to send in reinforcements Wednesday to help the city get its murders under control. Mayor Catherine Pugh, speaking at a news conference, explained she went to the FBI’s Baltimore office for extra agents to join with police officers in combating a skyrocketing murder count, reports CNN. “Murder is out of control. There are too many guns on the streets. We’re looking for all the help we can get,” Pugh said. The city already has 101 murders for the year, a number not seen in almost 20 years. The mayor’s spokesperson warned the violence could rise

Muslim reformer Zuhdi Jasser has recently attacked leaders of the anti-Jihad movement in America. He equated them with jihadists when he called them the derogatory word, alt-jihadists, meaning that Americans who speak and write against the evils of Islamic jihad and sharia are just as bad as jihadists. (snip)I have always respected what Zuhdi Jasser was trying to do and avoided contradicting him in public, even though I do not believe that Islam is reformable. I have kept my opinion to myself regarding the false hope Muslim reformers are giving to the Americans regarding Islam. But when Jasser attacked leaders
