Once South America's most prosperous country, Venezuela has now been suffering in dire misery for many months under hyperinflation brought on by its leaders.
With U.S. President Donald Trump and Venezuelan dictator Nicolas Maduro missing, government leaders at the Summit of the Americas in Lima, Peru, signed a “commitment” promising to keep advancing the cause of globalism and even the United Nations Agenda 2030 all across the region. The implications for freedom and self-government are troubling. The summit, which takes place every three years, was organized by the Organization of American States (OAS), a sort of wannabe European Union for the Western Hemisphere. And while the confab received plenty of press coverage, virtually nobody in the establishment media focused on the important elements — or the threat to liberty and national sovereignty.
With globalists, Marxists, and other shady characters from across the region coming together in Lima, Peru, to advance globalism at the Summit of the Americas, at least one prominent leader will be staying home: U.S. President Donald Trump.
Venezuela is headed for 13,000-percent inflation, and the prices of necessary commodities such as eggs are skyrocketing.
The flow of Venezuelan heavy crude oil to U.S. Gulf Coast refineries dropped by 60 percent in the first three weeks of January, hastening the political demise of Nicolas Maduro.
The upcoming "election" in Venezuela is all for show: Nicolas Maduro will remain Venezuela's dictator.
Ricardo Hausmann, a professor at Harvard and a director of the Kennedy School of Government there, suggests that the only way to “solve” the Venezuelan “crisis” is through military intervention.
Socialism is a lie, a scam, and a fraud, sold to the unsuspecting and the ignorant by those lusting for power. Venezuela is the most obvious example.
Nicolas Maduro remains in power in Venezuela thanks to financial help from American and Russian oil interests, and lack of complete forthrightness from the Times.
