Two Russian Air Force reportedly planes landed in Venezuela´s main airport on Saturday carrying a Russian defence official and around 100 troops. One flight tracking website shows two aircraft left a Russian military base for the Venezuelan capital Caracas on Friday, with a further jet leaving on Sunday. The arrival of the military jets was confirmed by Javier Mayorca, an independent journalist, who said an Antonov-124 cargo plane and a smaller jet touched down late on Saturday.

Comments:

I hope they brought some extra food, at least some snacks or vodka.

If you ever doubted that socialism and communism are two sides of the same coin, this should show you that they are. Here is a communist country helping a "socialist" country. Why? Because they are all of the same agenda.

Yeah, we all know how difficult it is to control people who are sick, hungry, cold, frightened for their children, thirsty, without weapons, no communication etc. I think it´s time Taco Barbie and Bernie the Elder Idiot go down there and help turn them around.

For shame. How morally blind can you be. One thing coming from young and ignorant AOC, but the Russian Foreign Ministry knows conditions in Venezuela and knows where the money went. They cannot think any further into the chess game than opposing us. It never gets to where people end up happy and free. They know how to play the game super well except not what the objective is.

What´s a "reportedly plane?" If it flew into Venezuela carrying people it was either a plane or a bird - or a dragon. Make your best guess, Rachel.

Russia needs the oil and we have blocked their access to Iran. Fingers are going to be slapped.

Putin means to test Trump. Vlad will emerge from this a lesser man. If Obama or Hillary were in power, Putin´s invasion might have become a permanent situation, short of a hemispheric war.

Putin just made a major mistake. We are not going to tolerate Russian troops in our hemisphere. Maduro is done, and so is Cuba. Russia and China may not like it, but history has overtaken Cuba and Venezuelan thuggery, and it will no longer be tolerated. Mr. Putin, you better pack those 100 back into a plane and bring their butts back to Russia.

#2, it’s not a communist country supporting a socialist country. It’s one dictator supporting another dictator. This has nothing to do with ideology (look at the other countries supporting Maduro) and everything to do with power (not to mention sticking it to the USA).

What the Soviets did in Afghanistan in 1979, except that that was closer to its homeland. They also faced the mujahideen whom we helped later with weaponry enabling them to better defend themselves and go on the offensive. The Venezuelans appear to be defenseless and weak, starving and ill.

Putin said two weeks ago that he would enjoy another Cuban missile crisis. He is daring Trump to do something or be remembered as the biggest coward in history. Landing troops into our hemisphere is supposedly an act of war against the U.S. The world is watching.

Tucker Carlson of Fox News was not among those celebrating the end of Iranian General Qassem Soleimani’s reign of terror around the globe. On Friday’s show, Carlson blasted Washington “neocons” for wanting to go to war. “Chest beaters like Senator Ben Sasse of Nebraska are making the usual warlike noises like they always make,” he said. By all accounts, Soleimani was the world’s most dangerous terrorist, responsible for the deaths of thousands. The number of people shedding tears for the leader of Iran’s infamous Quds Force is very limited, and most assuredly, Carlson was not mourning Soleimani’s death.

The U.S. and Turkey agreed Thursday to a cease-fire in the Turks' deadly attacks on Kurdish fighters in northern Syria, requiring the Kurds to vacate the area in an arrangement that largely solidifies Turkey's position and aims in the weeklong conflict. The deal includes a conditional halt to American economic sanctions. After negotiations with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, U.S. Vice President Mike Pence hailed the five-day cease-fire as the way to end the bloodshed caused by Turkey's invasion of Syria.

On Oct. 16, 1919, Adolf Hitler became a propagandist. It would be his chief occupation for the rest of his life. Without propaganda, he could never have become a public figure, let alone risen to power. It was as a propagandist that he made a second world war possible, and defined Jews as Germany’s foe. The form of his propaganda was inextricable from its content: the fictionalization of a globalized world into simple slogans

The Chicago Transit Authority’s (CTA) official Twitter account retweeted a post with photos of a man dressed as the Great Emancipator waiting for the Red Line train. “In honor of Black History Month, Abraham Lincoln was seen making a guest appearance on the CTA,” the CTA wrote Wednesday, which was also Lincoln’s 111th birthday. The tweet was quickly deleted after users criticized the agency for celebrating a white man during Black History Month, the Chicago Tribune reported.

The Justice Department said Friday it will not pursue criminal charges against former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe, after a nearly two-year-long investigation into accusations brought by the agency's independent watchdog who claimed that he lacked "candor" when questioned about leaking to the media. In a letter to McCabe attorney Michael Bromwich obtained by Fox News, Justice Department attorney J.P. Cooney said the investigation is now “closed.” “We write to inform you that, after careful consideration, the Government has decided not to pursue criminal charges against your client, Andrew G. McCabe,’” Cooney wrote.

Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) issued a scathing denunciation of the mainstream media on Friday, accusing several outlets of ignoring her campaign in favor of lesser candidates and blaming that coverage in part for her campaign's failure to gain traction with primary voters. In an email to supporters on Friday, Warren's campaign said it could no longer "count on the media to cover our campaign fairly." It argued that other candidates, such as former vice president Joe Biden, received more coverage despite posting less impressive results in early primary states.

A biologically male marathon runner who identifies as a transgender woman is set to compete in the USA Olympic trials later in February. Megan Youngren “is set to make history on Feb. 29 as the first openly transgender athlete to compete at the U.S. Olympic marathon trials,” Sports Illustrated reported. Youngren qualified for the trials after a strong performance on Dec. 8, 2019 in the California International Marathon. “People will try to put it down by saying, ‘That’s too easy because you’re trans.’ But what about the 500 other women who will qualify?” Youngren told the magazine. “There’s probably someone with the exact same story.”

Now that as many as six serious Democratic candidates remain in the race, pundits increasingly believe the party is headed for a brokered convention. Hold on to your hats if that happens, because it’s even more complicated than it sounds. Presidential nominating conventions used to be “brokered” because the delegates were largely appointed by — and loyal to — political bosses. Delegates voted on multiple ballots as rivals vied for the bosses’ favor, making the quadrennial events the political equivalent of reality television. You could never be sure which governor or senator would be voted off the island and which would become the ultimate survivor.

New findings strongly suggest that, thanks in part to left-wing Judge Amy Berman Jackson, convicted former Trump campaign official and longtime political consultant Roger Stone’s guilt wasn’t determined last year by an unbiased jury but rather by one stocked with partisan left-wing operatives. Among the alleged operatives was former Tennessee Democrat congressional candidate Tomeka Hart, a far-left activist who’d been posting negative stories about President Donald Trump and his alleged (and since-debunked) Russian collusion crimes to social media long before she was selected to serve on Stone’s jury last November.

When Donald Trump won his historic upset victory in 2016, media outlets briefly turned to the "forgotten" men and women of rural America and those in once-great American cities now crumbling. The "Great Revolt," as Salena Zito explains it, describes a political realignment aimed at revitalizing broken communities. Yet according to a groundbreaking new film, the true answer to urban decay, broken families, and ballooning debt from dependence on social programs isn't more government but a return to the traditional sources of meaning: faith, family, work, and community. Filmmaker Christopher Rufo traveled to three crumbling American cities — Youngstown, Ohio; Memphis, Tenn.; and Stockton, Calif. —
