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.

WASHINGTON — The day before he upended the 2016 election, James B. Comey, the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, summoned agents and lawyers to his conference room. They had been debating all day, and it was time for a decision. Mr. Comey’s plan was to tell Congress that the F.B.I. had received new evidence and was reopening its investigation into Hillary Clinton, the presidential front-runner. The move would violate the policies of an agency that does not reveal its investigations or do anything that may influence an election. But Mr. Comey had declared the case closed, and he believed

Before there was Trump, there was O’Reilly’s populism infused with a New York sensibility. Dear Reader (I said “reader.” This will not be the venue for Caitlyn Jenner’s nude debut.), Bill O’Reilly is leaving Fox, and I can’t say I’ll miss him. I don’t mean that to sound too harsh (not that he much cared about sounding too harsh). The truth is I almost never watched his show, unless it was on someplace where I didn’t have control of the remote. That’s not quite the slight it may seem to be either. My job often makes me feel like Lucy

President Barack Obama will be in Chicago on Monday to discuss community organization and civic engagement.

A review of Donald Trump´s business career would lead one to say that he has always over-promised and under-delivered. Whether his long list of bankruptcies in the ever-profitable casino business, the failures of his "university,´ steak, vodka or clothing lines, there has been a history of putting himself first, while ignoring the needs of his constituents. We may be seeing that play out in his approach to government, as well. As in business, Trump has a constituency of one … himself … just ask his stock and bond investors, his suppliers, contractors, laborers, or even his customers. Unlike Trump, they rarely,

Outraged Muslims are reportedly planning a May 1 demonstration at the Amazon headquarters in Seattle, Washington. The company is under fire after several Muslim security guards demanded time and space to pray five times a day, while on the job. The guards contend in a lawsuit filed this week that the subcontractor who employs them does not appropriately accommodate their faith and retaliates against those who speak out. The Service Employees International Union and the guards allege that Amazon grants high-earning tech workers conference rooms to pray in, but they do not provide the same accommodation for contracted security officers

The September 2016 article in Politico championing Hillary Clinton’s use of "data analytics" now looks—how shall we put it?—rather premature. Politico swooned that computer algorithms "underlie nearly all of the Clinton campaign´s most important strategic decisions." Computer guru Elan Kriegel had crunched the numbers for campaign manager Robby Mook, allowing Team Clinton to precisely target her potential voters and thus not waste one dime on appealing to the deplorables. "Clintonites saw it as their secret weapon in building an insurmountable delegate lead over Bernie Sanders," Politico reported. And come the general election the Clintonistas were downright giddy about the edge Big Data

This week’s edition of Time Magazine named former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick to its list of the 100 Most Influential People. The list breaks down the chosen 100 into five categories: Pioneers, Artists, Leaders, Titans, and Icons. Kaepernick appears in the Icons group. In the Time Magazine profile, former SF 49ers Coach Jim Harbaugh praised the controversial quarterback’s protest last year of the Star Spangled Banner, “when he boldly and courageously confronted perceived inequalities in our social-justice system by refusing to stand for the national anthem.” Harbaugh made no mention of Kaepernick’s penchant for wearing socks denigrating law

What could possibly motivate Maxine Waters to claim twice that she never called for Donald Trump´s impeachment when the video evidence is so compelling? It is one thing for conservative websites to call her out, but even MSNBC, the broadcast leader in Trump-hatred, is taking notice of the absolute falsity of her claim. Yesterday, in an on-air discussion among Hallie Jackson, Craig Melvin, and Mark Murray, the California congresswoman was explicitly called out for her denial of reality: JACKSON: "... pretty strong words from somebody else on the other side of the aisle.
