Great food for thought TS.

"IMO the only thing standing in the way of an "American Venezuela" is the patriots of this great country and the socialists/communists know it."

This sentence 'bout sums it up nicely for me.

The current presidential election may be the Nation's tipping point - certainly for the make up of The Supreme Court.

Back to Venezuela - they are in a socialist-made world-of-hurt - your observations are spot on.

While I believe the current socialist/muslim administration has the Department of Homeland Security , the DOJ, FBI, IRS, EPA etc. in their pocket by placing incompetent and spineless individuals in leadership roles, (who will say and do anything barry soetoro asks them to do like change, omit, delete the facts in an islamic terrorism attack), barry soetoro does not control the military.
I am sorry but I would have to disagree with you. Barry most certainly DOES control the military.
Submitted for review: the last 7 years of cultural change championed by the CINC. From the repeal of DADT, to the expansion of women in direct combat roles, to the appointment of a Secretary of the Army that is quite vocal in his support of allowing transgender service members to serve openly.
...the deafening silence of senior military leaders speaking out publicly against social experimentation using the military as a petri dish signals to me that the POTUS is very MUCH in control of the military. Hell we even published some YouTube videos to explain why we were not even going to ASK for an exception to the women in service policy.

It only takes a brief look at the willingness of retirees like Clark, McChrystal, Petraeus, and others to jump on the anti-gun bandwagon before I start to think...
...even that republican Secretary of State that only seems to vote democrat paints a picture of senior leaders that are worried more about politics than the freedom of the people in his charge.
"yes, United States Military leaders ARE starting to act like a bit the South American military"

US militicians have been polishing their act for a generation now. I am afraid it will be hard for someone to convince me that the POTUS is NOT firmly in control of the military.


Just my two cents... I could be wrong.

The dismissal of Mattis perfectly illustrates how senior leadership is chosen for compliance.

+1 Thus, their perpetual efforts at our disarmament. Sigline quoted from Peregrino appropriate.

Sean Penn And Other Hollywood Tools Bear Responsibility For Venezuela’s Condition
 
Good article concerning the hollywood elites and the socialist/communist murder they help commit. Amazing how the left-wing America media is now silent. I've neo heard of one hollywood elite assisting Venezuela.

Well done Sean Penn, Harry Belafonte, Danny Glover, Michael Moore, Kevin Spacey, Susan Sarandon, Oliver Stone, and Naomi Campbell, I hope you all sleep well at night knowing Venezuela's poor are hungry because of your efforts.

Morons one and all.








Sean Penn And Other Hollywood Tools Bear Responsibility For Venezuela’s Condition
POSTED BY: ALEX DAVID MAY 16, 2016

Venezuela is about to collapse. The people there are starving. There are rumors that some are eating cats to survive. Protests and riots materialize every day. Stores ransacked. The country is in chaos.

American celebrities have power due to their popularity and a sizable audience. Some use this gift for great causes and purposes. Then there are boneheads like Sean Penn, Harry Belafonte, Danny Glover, Michael Moore, Kevin Spacey, Susan Sarandon, Oliver Stone, and Naomi Campbell. These wealthy, pampered celebrities supported Hugo Chavez while he transformed Venezuela into an oppressive socialistic government model and they continue to support his replacement, the current President, Nicolas Maduro.

I do admit that they are great actors and entertainers, and I certainly do not begrudge their economic success. In fact, I applaud it. But they don’t. They openly criticize and abhor the capitalism that made them incredibly wealthy. Moreover, they believe that only a Socialist form of government can ensure true equality, “a sea of happiness” and a content citizenry. To wit, some of them traveled to Venezuela many times to support Hugo Chavez during the beginning of the run up to a Socialist government there. Sean Penn, notably, acted as an eager surrogate for Chavez, encouraging the people there to vote for the strongman.

Hugo is dead and gone now. When he died, his Hollywood fans wrote weepy words of sympathy and condolences.

Since the death of Chavez, his self-proclaimed “son,” President Nicolas Maduro, like a “mini-me”, has taken his place and has been enthusiastically continuing his “father’s” vision of a Socialist Utopia. Sean Penn was fully on board with Maduro, stating: “Venezuela and its revolution will endure under the proven leadership of Vice President Maduro.”

Now look at the country. The latest “Global Misery Index” which has been used for years to measure the level of misery one endures living in any of the 59 countries surveyed, has awarded Penn’s glittering country of Venezuela the winner and Grand Master Champion of misery. It beat top contenders like The Dominican Republic, The Palestinian Territory, and……Bangladesh. Congratulations!

Not content with being the Misery King, the country was also awarded the top spot in a Gallup Poll showing it to be the most dangerous, crime-ridden nightmarish hellhole on planet earth. Awesome!

To all those Hollywood celebrities who expressed their undying support and love, here’s a fun fact: their combined net worth is close to the annual GDP of their beloved country. Of course, I’m sure they won’t be donating any of their wealth anytime soon to the tormented and starving people who have to live in their version of Shangri-la.

These rich, arrogant Hollywood elites are culpable for the hellhole Venezuela has become. They helped sell, with their “star power,” the glory of a Socialistic Government to the citizenry of Venezuela.

Sean Penn and the other Hollywood supporters of Venezuela’s Socialist system should be dragged out of their McMansions and flown over, empty-handed, to Venezuela. Then forced to live as one of the oppressed citizens entrenched in the daily nightmare of life in the slums of Caracas.

With all due respect, look at the mess our country is in, and by the same token, we allowed THIS mess to happen as well.

I think it's time for some freedom tree watering, and I fear that we will allow our rights and freedoms to be eroded past the point where anyone will have the will, arms, or supplies to affect more than a minor bump in the road to tyranny.

I hope I'm wrong though.

Venezuela, A Corrupt Socialist Failure
 
Will not be long now. This is exactly what Hillary wants for America, complete failure due to socialist corruption. Enjoy it while it lasts.

Socialists, Sean Penn, Harry Belafonte, Danny Glover, Michael Moore, Kevin Spacey, Susan Sarandon, Oliver Stone, and Naomi Campbell, are all eating caviar on $1000 dollar plates while the people of Venezuela starve.

The "trigger" event should happen soon. When it does the dictator Maduro and his henchmen will murder Venezuelans by the hundreds, maybe thousands and then flee to Cuba. It's coming.





In just 12 hours, more than 35K Venezuelans cross Colombian border to buy food, medicine
Published July 11, 2016/
EFE

Cucuta – In just 12 hours, more than 35,000 Venezuelans crossed the border into Colombia on Sunday to buy food and medicines in the city of Cucuta, when the Venezuelan government agreed to opened border crossings for one day only.

People began crossing the Simon Bolivar international bridge at 5:00 a.m. to purchase products that are scarce in Venezuela.

"We're from here in San Antonio (and), honestly, we don't have any food to give our children, so I don't think it's fair that the border is still closed," a Venezuelan woman told EFE in Cucuta.

The woman, who preferred to not give her name, crossed the international bridge with her husband and children ages 5 and 2.

The border crossings between Tachira state and Norte de Santander province were closed on Aug. 19, 2015, by Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, who said he took the measure to fight smuggling and prevent members of paramilitary groups from entering Venezuela.

Maduro later ordered all crossings along the 1,378-mile border closed.

Fast-food money; they shell-out about $35K per for their little fund-raisers in support of the Empress-Wannabe while host George Looney pontificates there's too much money in politics.

They can live there (or try). Screw 'em.

Venezuela Seizes Local Kimberly-Clark Factory
 
Venezuela Seizes Local Kimberly-Clark Factory

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-0...-clark-factory

".....Labor Minister Owaldo Vera said Monday that the socialist government took the action at the request of the 971 workers at the factory that the company decided to shutter. The seizure follows a similar takeover from 2014 when Clorox announced it was closing its doors.

"Kimberly-Clark will continue producing for all of the Venezuelans," Vera said in a televised statement from the factory surrounded by workers chanting pro-government slogans. That statement was not exactly true: former workers of the company would continue producing under the observation of government management. We doubt this "forced restructring" will survive more than a few months...."

"...workers chanting pro-government slogans...." You just can't fix stupid.

Sheep will continue to vote for and support the rancher who feeds them and then who eventually slaughters them.
