Venezuela’s Maduro asks entire Cabinet
to resign amid political tensions

Miami Herald, by Jim Wyss

Original Article

Posted By:Moritz55, 3/18/2019 11:10:38 AM

Venezuelan leader Nicolás Maduro has asked his entire Cabinet to file their resignations as he struggles to maintain control of the country amid a two-month long political crisis. In a tweet Sunday, Vice President Delcy Rodriguez said Maduro asked for the resignations so he could engage in a “deep restructuring” of the government to “fortify the nation” against “any threat.” The move comes as Maduro is fighting for his political life against Juan Guaidó, the 37-year-old head of congress and the man who Washington and more than 50 other nations recognize as Venezuela’s sole president.

Comments:
Mr. Maduro, do you know whose resignation would help even more?

"Asks?" It is to laugh. Cabinet should run and hide, or face arrest.

Correction:

He asked his entire cabinet to commit suicide.

The last remaining medicine in Venezuela is cyanide pills.

This is the typical endgame of any socialist regime, throughout history.

Consolidation of power in El Presidente, with massive repression of populace to follow.

Stand by for more riots and violent putdown by government "security" forces.

That only will leave Maduro and a few faithful Generals. His end game is now begun and the real horror starts. Or Maduro ends up in the back of a Toyota pickup truck like Col. Quadaffi.

He better keep a fueled up helicopter and a loyal pilot close at hand.

If the soldiers decide to remain loyal to Maduro they will soon begin executions and a reign of terror the like of which Venezuelans never dreamed possible.

Cuba would need to spend $2 billion a year
for oil if Venezuela stops deliveries
Miami Herald, by Nora Gamez Torres    Original Article

Cuba would have to spend nearly $2 billion a year to meet its domestic oil needs if Venezuela’s National Assembly and interim president Juan Guaidó manage to stop deliveries to the Caribbean island. “Cuba’s demand for oil is about 130,000 barrels per day, and Cuba produces about 50,000 barrels per day, which means a deficit of about 80,000 barrels per day,” said Jorge Piñón, director of the Latin American Energy Program at the University of Texas at Austin. Piñón estimates that Cuba has fuel reserves for about 45 days. But the end of deliveries by Venezuela’s PDVSA oil company

Maduro Vows `Deep´ Change in Venezuela
Government Amid Pressure

Venezuela President Nicolas Maduro vowed a major shake-up in his government, a sign he is feeling pressure from U.S. sanctions and an international outcry for him to resign. “I will in the coming hours announce new government methods and a profound change in the entire government of Venezuela,” Maduro said in a speech at a political rally broadcast on state television. “We need to renew ourselves, refresh, improve, change.” As part of that renewal, he said a new team is needed to tackle the country’s dire social problems after asking for the resignations of his cabinet members last week.

U.S. ratchets up pressure on Venezuela

The Treasury Department on Friday slapped additional sanctions on Venezuela, this time on the banking sector, the latest effort from the White House to intensify pressure on dictator Nicolás Maduro. The sanctions target Venezuela´s state-owned and controlled bank Banco de Desarrollo Economico y Social de Venezuela, or BANDES, and four related financial institutions. “The willingness of Maduro’s inner-circle to exploit Venezuela’s institutions knows no bounds. Regime insiders have transformed BANDES and its subsidiaries into vehicles to move funds abroad in an attempt to prop up Maduro,” Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said in a statement Friday.

President Trump must respond forcefully to Nicolas Maduro´s arrest on Thursday of interim Venezuelan President Juan Guaido´s chief of staff, Roberto Marrero. In allowing its rhetoric to exceed its actions, the Trump administration has ceded the strategic initiative to Maduro. In recent weeks we´ve seen repeated pledges for new tough action against Maduro from officials such as Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and national security adviser John Bolton. But President Trump and President Ivan Duque of Colombia have been reluctant to embrace those bolder actions. The consequences are clear: Maduro´s retained power, Guaido´s inability to win greater support from Venezuela´s

Guaidó Says Venezuelan Agents Detained
His Chief Of Staff In Pre-Dawn Raid

Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaidó said Thursday that government agents detained his chief of staff, Roberto Marrero, in an overnight raid. Describing what he called a kidnapping, Guaidó said weapons had been planted at Marrero´s house and that he should be freed immediately. The raid took place around 2 a.m. local time, Guaidó said, adding that he does not know Marrero´s current whereabouts — and saying his chief of staff had denounced any knowledge of two rifles and a grenade that he says authorities allegedly found in his home. Marrero lives in Caracas, near lawmaker Sergio Vergara

US Ambassador Richard Grenell is acting like "a high commissioner of an occupying power," the deputy leader of the Free Democrats (FDP) has said. Grenell has also drawn rebuffs from Germany´s two governing parties. Wolfgang Kubicki, the deputy chairman of the opposition Free Democrats (FDP), said Richard Grenell´s repeated interference in German sovereignty should prompt Foreign Minister Heiko Maas to immediately declare Grenell persona non grata. "Any US diplomat who acts like a high commissioner of an occupying power must learn that our tolerance also knows its limits," said Kubicki, who is also one of five deputy speakers

What a Military Intervention in
Venezuela Would Look Like

Posted By: Moritz55- 3/19/2019 11:11:31     Post Reply
The United States has a clear objective in Venezuela: regime change and the restoration of democracy and the rule of law. Yet sanctions, international diplomatic isolation, and internal pressure have failed to deliver a breakthrough. Minds are turning to military intervention. U.S. President Donald Trump has said that “all options are on the table.” What if he means it? There are two plausible ways the United States might use force in Venezuela: a precision bombing campaign and a full-scale invasion. Either course would have to be followed by efforts to stabilize the country and establish a civilian government.

The daughter of an American imprisoned in Venezuela details the inhumane conditions that her father has endured for nearly two years. “They would not be able to survive on the less than 500 calories a day of carbs that is provided in this basement." Aliro Zambrano´s daughter, Alexandra Forseth, told “Trish Regan Primetime.” “We had to get doctor´s orders to give them food.” Zambrano, a former executive of Citgo Petroleum, has been detained in a Venezuelan prison without due process along with four other American citizens and one U.S. green card holder.

Treasury sanctions Moscow bank

President Trump is intensifying pressure on Venezuelan strongman Nicolas Maduro by imposing sanctions on a bank jointly owned by Russian and Venezuelan government-owned enterprises, the Treasury Department announced Monday. “The United States will take action against foreign financial institutions that sustain the illegitimate Maduro regime and contribute to the economic collapse and humanitarian crisis plaguing the people of Venezuela,” Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said. Mnuchin’s team blacklisted Evrofinance Mosnarbank, a Moscow-based bank established by the late Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez in 2011 in coordination with two major state-owned Russian banks.

How bad is Venezuela´s economy?

How bad is Venezuela´s economy? Even the criminals are struggling to get by. In one of the strangest consequences of this oil-rich country´s collapse, cash has virtually disappeared. With soaring hyperinflation, the government can´t print money fast enough to keep up, so many Venezuelans have switched to debit cards - not that they have enough money on them. Suddenly there´s a whole class of people whose pockets are no longer worth picking. "If they steal your wallet, there´s nothing in it," says Yordin Ruiz, 58, a shoemaker.

Six weeks after Juan Guaido declared himself Venezuela´s President, US lawmakers are wrestling with the possibility that momentum behind his political movement could stall and the question of how to respond as the crisis ripples regionwide. One reason: The Venezuelan people, once residents of Latin America´s wealthiest country, may be too weakened by starvation to take to the streets for much longer, one expert told the Senate Foreign Relations subcommittee on Latin America. "People who are starving do not mobilize in the streets," Cynthia Arnson, director of the Latin America Program at the Wilson Center, told the subcommittee on Thursday.

Florida, with its plentiful beaches, warm weather, and lack of a state income tax, is the most popular destination for older adults in the U.S. But some who have lived in the Sunshine State for years are moving in the opposite direction. As damaging storms and other effects of climate change have hit Florida particularly hard in the past few years, some older adults living there have become concerned about their safety and their ability to enjoy retirement. So they’re fleeing this otherwise balmy state. About 52,630 people ages 65 and over left Florida in 2017, versus 48,174 in

Barbra Streisand is under fire for comments she made about two men accusing Michael Jackson of sexually assaulting them as children. The legendary singer and actress said that Wade Robson and James Safechuck — whose allegations against the late King of Pop resurfaced in the recent documentary “Leaving Neverland" — “were thrilled to be there” and that what allegedly happened to them “didn’t kill them." Streisand, 76, made the strange comments to British newspaper The Times in a piece out Friday, in which she also said that Jackson’s “sexual needs were his sexual needs.”

The San Antonio City Council banned Chick-fil-A from San Antonio International Airport over “anti-LGBTQ behavior” as part of a new concession plan for the airport. District 1 City Councilman Roberto Treviño motioned to approve the Food, Beverage and Retail Prime Concession Agreement with Paradies Lagardère for the airport Thursday on condition Chick-fil-A be excluded from the agreement. Treviño asserted Chick-fil-A has a “legacy of anti-LGBTQ behavior” and that such a business had no place in the city’s airport.

This spelling and grammar test from the 1980s is so difficult that it is claimed no one can get more than 50 per cent of the answers right. The 20-question quiz promises to leave even the brightest brains scratching their heads. Indeed it is so tricky that its creator, Playbuzz user Terry Stein, claims players will ´never´ be able to score more than 10 out of 20. So if you think you have what it takes then scroll down to take the test in full. But the answers are at the bottom - so no cheating...

Even though we do not yet know exactly what the Mueller Report says, we do now know that no other indictments are in the works. No collusion with Russia by the Trump campaign was found. So, the self-assured and confident predictions by so many on the left that they had seen "cold, hard evidence," and that Mueller would find copious evidence of "collusion" with Russia, was just wishful thinking alone. They all had to know the infamous "dossier" was faked.

First of all, of course everyone should wait to see the contents of the actual Mueller report before drawing any specific final conclusions about it. But here are some laws of nature in the modern age: If that report contained a fraction of the damaging material breathlessly awaited in the media culture for two years, there would be some smoke signal of it. Instead, we saw an actual finding from the Justice Department that there would be no further indictments from the probe. No indictment of Trump. No indictment of anyone associated with the campaign or the administration to support

A group of black seminarians is seeking amends for the Princeton Theological Seminary’s founders’ and early faculty’s ties to slavery. The Association of Black Seminarians posted a petition online earlier this month as a response to a report that detailed the seminary’s history with slavery, which was released last year. So far, the group has collected more than 400 signatures on the petition, which asks for $5.3 million annually to fund tuition grants for black students and establish a Black Church Studies program.(Snip) “Princeton Theological Seminary is uniquely positioned to lead the theological academy in addressing historic, structural, educational

Former Vice President Joe Biden’s advisers are reportedly asking him to consider pledging to just serve one term in office if he wins his party’s nomination and faces off against President Donald Trump in the general election. (Snip)Biden’s advisers are discussing “a possible pledge to serve only one term” and framing Biden’s 2020 campaign “as a one-time rescue mission for a beleaguered country.” Biden is reportedly “uneasy with the prospect of pledging up front not to seek re-election,” though, “believing that it would make him a lame-duck president before he even takes office and cripple his ability to get anything done.”
