Re: Venezuela crisis

...'humanitarian aid' for Venezuela. In my humble opinion, it is anything but, given how the US has been choking Venezuela for years. "For years" (decades) the US has allowed the free flow of diluent and dollars to PDVSA -- 99% of Vz's hard currency income. Venezuela could have sold their oil and b...

Re: Travel to the u.s. gets safer, TSA calls in sick over shutdown

Same old Pelosi malfeasance: " The House of Representatives is scheduled to vote on a government appropriations bill Thursday evening and, with a day until the vote, lawmakers still have not received the text of the legislation.

The Venezuelan pretty boy was elected under the same system as Maduro. To say that one is rotten and the other smells good is a bit of a stretch, to say the least :)
Really? You say Maduro was elected by the Asamblea Nacional under constitutional articles 233, 331, 333, and 350?

Re: Venezuela crisis

Guaidó is an establishment leftist like all the "opposition" so not much will change policywise. My prediction:
100% Vz will remain a Marxist s###hole regardless of who is in office. Some of the enchufados might go to prison, but most will remain just as they are, behind the scenes.
