Maduro thinks that Obama
makes "a serious mistake"

El Universal [Caracas, Venezuela], by Staff

Original Article

Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro feels that his US counterpart Barack Obama has made "a serious mistake" for his failure to acknowledge the results of the Venezuelan presidential election. "I think that they are making a serious mistake, another one in their Latin American policy. I think that they (Maduro´s dissenters) convinced Obama of their adventure intended to disregard the election and promised him that I would be toppled (...) They let Obama down in an adventure and a defeat, and right now he is trapped for good," Maduro told multi-state network Telesur, DPA cited.

Comments:
His mistake was not sending in the Marines.

Shhh. The President Is Sleeping

President Barack Obama is out of gas. Pooped out. Gone fishing. Or rather, golfing. He’s just not that into it anymore. The republic is safe from any further vast left-wing legislative prescriptions for our ills. But Obama’s increasing job fatigue is, paradoxically, cause for serious concern. While he sits back, aides in the White House and in the agencies are busy enacting a stealth agenda of rules and regulations. And on the world stage, Washington’s withdrawal threatens national security. The president on display at Tuesday’s State of the Union is one who has shrunk from the pretension of becoming a president on

Argentina´s Luck Is Finally Running Out

Argentina’s luck is finally starting to run out. It devalued its currency by 15 percent last week, marking the beginning of a possible economic crisis of the kind Argentina has become known for. Argentina’s problem is that it has followed the logic of populism for more than a decade and President Cristina Kirchner is showing no interest in changing course. In the 1990s Argentina combined far-reaching but sometimes flawed market-reforms with irresponsible fiscal policies, culminating in its 2002 default on $81 billion in debt—the largest sovereign default in history. The country delinked its currency from the dollar, experienced a severe economic

Lunch Commissars On

Education: What does it take to turn an ordinary school official into a red-star commissar remorselessly yanking lunches from hungry kids and tossing them in the trash? Try an anti-school choice union and a big bureaucracy. It actually happened at Uintah Elementary School in the Salt Lake City school district. The story from the embattled school administrators is that a "child nutrition manager" sought to correct the arrears of parents´ payments to their subsidized lunch program ($2.50 a day) and, after giving a day´s notice, had food service workers yank the trays of served food right out of the children´s little

Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro took part in the opening of the Hugo Chávez Museum located in San Carlos de la Cabaña fortress, Havana. The ceremony was held within the framework of the Second Presidential Summit of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States, (Celac). "Chávez was the warrior of the light, the warrior of ideas who found the lost paths," said Maduro during the opening ceremony attended by several heads of state, including the presidents of Uruguay, José "Pepe" Mujica; Bolivia, Evo Morales; and Cuba´s Raúl Castro.

JERSEY CITY, N.J. — Mayor Bill de Blasio may have harshly criticized New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie for his administration’s recent “bridgegate” scandal, but for one night, at least, it was all water under the bridge. The pair kicked off this weekend’s Super Bowl festivities with a joint appearance in Jersey City last night. And if Mr. de Blasio had any lingering harsh feelings about the alleged traffic shutdown over the George Washington Bridge, he certainly didn’t show it. Instead, the bipartisan pair looked like old friends as they appeared on stage together to count down to a fireworks display at the

CHILPANCINGO, Mexico – Hundreds of armed men belonging to community self-defense groups occupied eight small towns near Chilpancingo, capital of the southern Mexican state of Guerrero, and detained a dozen suspected extortionists, a spokesperson for the vigilantes said. The action was taken due to the “federal government’s poor response” in ensuring the security of the state’s inhabitants, Gonzalo Torres, a coordinator of the Citizen Safety and Justice System, or SSyJC, organization, said Friday. The vigilantes said they seized control of the towns, all part of the municipality of Chilpancingo, because their residents are the victims of criminal gangs that extort and kidnap

Socialism: The huge currency devaluations that hit Venezuela and Argentina last week could be seen coming a mile away. This is a warning to the U.S. about big-government spending policies financed by printing money. The markets have given a resounding vote of no confidence to many emerging-market currencies, triggering sell-offs as far flung as Turkey, Russia and South Africa. But nowhere were the losses as catastrophic as those in two socialist Latin American countries that have thumbed their noses at fiscal discipline, ruthlessly used printed cash to expand their states and treated their citizens as cash cows, gleefully chasing out thousands of

Argentina is considering the purchase from Israel of 18 multipurpose combat aircraft Kfir Block 60 after negotiations with Spain for 16 Mirage F1 fighter bombers fell through, according to a report from Buenos Aires daily Clarin. Apparently Israel´s offer has been on the Defense minister Agustin Rossi´s desk since some time but only resurfaced sometime back in September following on the frustrated deal with Spain. Clarin also mentions that news of the negotiations between the Argentine ministry of defense and Israel´s Aero-spatial Industry, IAI, which manufactures the Kfir Block 60, caused ´concern´ in the British government since it is

Discotheques have long operated inside Venezuelan penitentiaries, the head of the country´s prison service said Thursday in response to a public uproar over the death of a young man after partying at a disco behind bars. ”The scandal (regarding) if ´there are discotheques in the prisons.´ The discos in the prisons have always existed, at least since the revolution (1999, when leftist Hugo Chavez became president). Regrettably, it´s a perversion,“ Iris Varela told reporters from a prison in the eastern state of Anzoategui. ”What the management of the revolutionary government has done is do away with those discotheques, close them,“

George Tsunis is rich. He raised a lot of money for Barack Obama and other Democrats. Barack Obama has nominated George Tsunis to be the U.S. ambassador to Norway. George Tsunis should have wiki´d Norway before testifying to the Senate. Via Yahoo News´ Olivier Knox: Tsunis became a Democrat in November 2009 — after giving $50,000 to Republican Sen. John McCain´s 2008 campaign. So it´s perhaps fitting that it was the tart-tongued Arizona senator´s questions that elicited his sloppy confirmation hearing performance last week (it starts at about 1:14 here). To recap: Tsunis described Norway as having a president ("apparently under the impression that

It will be the first meeting between the two men, who share a focus on addressing the gap between rich and poor. “The president looks forward to discussing with Pope Francis their shared commitment to fighting poverty and growing inequality,” the White House said.

WHEN Woody Allen received a Golden Globe award for lifetime achievement a few weeks ago, there was a lively debate about whether it was appropriate to honor a man who is an artistic giant but also was accused years ago of child molestation. Allen’s defenders correctly note that he denies the allegations, has never been convicted and should be presumed innocent. People weighed in on all sides, but one person who hasn’t been heard out is Dylan Farrow, 28, the writer and artist whom Allen was accused of molesting.

In November, the U.S. Postal Service reported it had a $5 billion loss for Fiscal Year 2013, its seventh consecutive year with loss. At the time, Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe blamed Congress for the loss, citing an “inflexible business model.” “We’ve achieved some excellent results for the year in terms of innovations, revenue gains, and cost reductions, but without major legislative changes we cannot overcome the limitations of our inflexible business model,” Donahoe said. “Congress is moving forward with legislation that has the potential to give us greater flexibility and put us back on a firm financial footing

Some Republican establishment operatives and their big donors want former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney to run again in 2016--but they won´t go on record with their comments. An anonymous establishment operative told left-wing BuzzFeed that the 2016 GOP field, which is considered as strong as 2012´s was weak, has "gotten so bad" from the establishment´s point of view that donors are "looking back fondly on the good old days of 2012." “You know what a lot of them say to me? I think we need Mitt back," the anonymous source told the liberal outlet. A recent poll of 2016 presidential primary voters

WASHINGTON -- President Barack Obama is getting some time in front of the cameras before sitting down to watch the Super Bowl. He´s doing a live interview from the White House with Bill O´Reilly about two hours before kickoff, during the Fox pregame show. The interview comes less than a week after Obama´s State of the Union address, in which he pledged to act to help the middle class if Congress won´t. Obama declined during a recent CNN interview to choose between the Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks in the title game, saying he didn´t want to offend either city. The White House

It is the question that has been dominating Washington dinner parties for weeks – could the once-golden First Couple of the United States really be heading for the rocks? If rumours are to be believed, the 21-year marriage of Barack and Michelle Obama has been racked by screaming rows, allegations of infidelity and a string of jealous fights. While the White House has refused to comment on the reports there has been a distinct frostiness in the air between the couple in recent months. According to a report in the National Enquirer--which plastered ‘Obama Divorce Bombshell!’ across its front page--the

I announced this past week that I will be retiring after having the honor of serving my Los Angeles constituents in Congress for 40 years. Immediately, speculation began that I am leaving because I am frustrated with a broken institution. But the exact opposite is true: I am leaving Congress with my conviction intact that the legislative branch can be a powerful force for good. Of course there are aspects of the current Congress that I abhor. This past week, every Republican on the Energy and Commerce Committee, where I have served most of my career, voted to limitthe Environmental Protection

World peace? No problem for Tim Tebow. Turns out the Patriots did themselves and Tebow a huge favor by releasing him from his contract before the season. Tebow has cashed in on his #NoContract status with a pair of 30-second commercials for T-Mobile set to air during the Super Bowl. If this one is any indication, the rest of the field will be fighting for second place in the "Best in Show" category. The ad is both creative, funny and incredibly well-produced. Enjoy this slice of Super Bowl ad heaven and God bless.

At a recent forum at the University of Michigan, MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry explained to her audience that white people will never understand why things are racist, because they lack an innate “racial trigger,” that instantly tells them when to be outraged. Harris-Perry, on the other hand, has a very finely-tuned racial trigger. “I know that this moment is racist because it trips my racial trigger, because it makes me feel nauseous,” she said, according to The Michigan Daily. “I’m not generally angry, but you just made me mad.” While lamenting that her ‘white allies’ would never be fully able to understand

Former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin issued a backhanded compliment to Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan on Friday, commending her most recent column while at the same time faulting her for taking so long to come around. "Great article, Peggy, but where the heck were you when I and other commonsense conservatives were sounding the warning bell in ´08?" Palin wrote. "You joined the ´cool kids´ in mocking and condescendingly criticizing -- ultimately demanding that we ´sit down and shut up.´ Better late than never, though, Peggy and your ilk, because, meanwhile back in America..." Palin was presumably referring to Noonan´s
