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.

"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.

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,

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.

As President Donald Trump heads overseas for his first international trip as President, many in the international community will be watching his national security adviser, Gen. H.R. McMaster, who has just experienced one of the most politically challenging weeks of his career. The trip -- to Saudi Arabia, Israel, the Vatican, a NATO summit in Brussels and a G7 summit in Sicily -- will be fraught with international risks, and much of it is riding on the ability of McMaster to steer the President in the right directions. Besieged at home, Trump sets off for ´do-or-die´ foreign trip

Jim DeMint´s ouster from The Heritage Foundation came as a shock to the hundreds of scholars and staffers who´ve seen the organization´s political influence grow thanks to DeMint’s controversial decision to align the leading conservative think tank closely with Donald Trump. But interviews with over a dozen sources at the center of the drama suggest Heritage´s stewards — particularly DeMint´s predecessor, Ed Feulner, and Feulner´s sharp-elbowed protégé, Mike Needham — became convinced that DeMint was incapable of renewing the foundation´s place as an intellectual wellspring of the conservative movement. Days of speculation, tension, and internal bickering came to a close on Tuesday:

Now, Hillary Clinton, having failed to win the White House in 2016, is currently on an “I’m owed an apology” tour.

In her Wellesley College commencement address Friday, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee took repeated shots at President Trump, the man who beat her in November. "Look at the budget that was just proposed in Washington," Clinton said. "It is an attack of unimaginable cruelty on the most vulnerable among us, the youngest, the oldest, the poorest, and hardworking people who need a little help to gain or hang on to a decent middle-class life… And to top it off, it is shrouded in a trillion-dollar mathematical lie."

Hillary Clinton says that she "beat" Donald Trump—and Bernie Sanders—in a lengthy feature article by New York Magazine. "I beat both of them," she said, evidently referencing her popular vote win over Trump. While Clinton did defeat Sanders, who is not a Democrat, in the Democratic primary, she did not defeat Trump, who was inaugurated as the 45th President of the United States in January. In the story, Clinton discussed her post-election status as a member of the "Resistance" to Trump, but she also reflected on the 2016 campaign, which included a harder-than-expected fight against Sanders for the nomination.

WASHINGTON — Shortly after President Trump took office, Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the majority leader, met privately with his colleagues to discuss the Republican agenda. Repealing the Affordable Care Act was at the top, he said. But replacing it would be really hard. Mr. McConnell was right. The many meetings Republicans held to discuss a Senate health care bill have exposed deep fissures within the party that are almost as large as the differences between Republicans and Democrats. Elements of a bill that passed the House this month have divided Republicans. Mr. McConnell faces an increasingly onerous math problem.

New revelations have surfaced that the Obama administration abused intelligence during the election by launching a massive domestic-spy campaign that included snooping on Trump officials. The irony is mind-boggling: Targeting political opposition is long a technique of police states like Russia, which Team Obama has loudly condemned for allegedly using its own intelligence agencies to hack into our election. The revelations, as well as testimony this week from former Obama intel officials, show the extent to which the Obama administration politicized and weaponized intelligence against Americans. Thanks to Circa News, we now know the National Security Agency under President Barack Obama routinely violated

It’s pile-on time for America’s commercial airlines. The contempt people hold for them has long been severe, but following a raft of highly publicized incidents, resentment has hit a fever pitch. It started about a month ago, with the forced removal of a passenger onboard a United Express flight. This was followed by several more airlines-behaving-badly controversies, up to and including the death of Simon, a giant rabbit who perished after a London-to-Chicago United flight. Over and over we are reminded about the hellishness that is commercial flying. Enabled by cellphone cameras and the catalyst of social media, even the most

"One must show that you won´t make small concessions, even symbolic ones, but also not over-publicize things, either," he told Le Journal du Dimanche, according to the AP.
