The “democratic socialist” and president of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro has lashed out at claims of electoral fraud by the company that administers Venezuela’s voting system. Maduro is accusing the company of succumbing to pressure from “the Gringos and the Brits” to sabotage his controversial and dictatorial new assembly.
“That stupid guy, the president of Smartmatic, pressured to the neck by the gringos and the Brits, said there were 7.5 million [voters],” Mr. Maduro said. “I think there were 10 million Venezuelans who went out.” Antonio Mujica, the chief executive of Smartmatic, the Venezuelan multinational has operated the country’s votes since 2004. Mujica said on Wednesday that the count produced by the electronic system was at least a million votes short of that announced by the election commission.
The widespread doubts over election turnouts and results in Venezuela make no difference to dictator Maduro though. He intends to go forward with the installation of the constituent assembly, which has been denounced around the world as a naked attempt to cement his power.
Maduro also claimed that about 2 million Venezuelan’s were prevented from voting because of opposition protests.
Pushing forward with the assembly, the tyrant Maduro will seal his power. The assembly, formed of elected and appointed members, is empowered to rewrite the 1999 Constitution to favor the Maduro government and to dismiss any institutions (such as the opposition-controlled Parliament) deemed obstructive to its socialist agenda.
[Maduro’s] denial came as Venezuela’s rebel attorney general, Louisa Ortega Diaz, ordered an investigation into the announcement from Smartmatic, which has now pulled all of its employees out of the country amid security fears.
Ms. Ortega Diaz, a formerly loyal Chavista who has turned on the government over human rights abuses and the constituent assembly election, told CNN she believed it was possible that less than 15 percent of the electorate voted – far from the 41.5 per cent claimed by the government.
“This country has lost all its freedoms progressively… the repression grows ever greater. All these actions are taking the country towards a dictatorial regime. Unfortunately if we keep going this way we will lose democracy,” she said. –Telegraph
But it’s clear to everyone else, that Venezuela lost freedom and democracy the minute the embraced socialism with open arms. Maduro has endorsed Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, a fellow socialist, in the United States calling him his “revolutionary friend.” Of course, socialist revolutions give all the power to the government. We can take a look at Venezuela and understand our future if voters in the US are ignorant enough to cast a vote for a socialist.
Special attention should be paid to Venezuela, as this is the future of all of humanity should the power hungry socialist politicians like Maduro continue to get their way.
Truth is, when all is said and done, socialism is just plain evil in its outcomes.
Why did the rich people bother with elections? After all they took the guns from the people in 2012.
The free world, those countries whose governments have been chosen in fair elections and whose people have full human rights, usually used to refer to the Western world in contrast to other countries, for example countries that have a Communist government:
Suspended reality, those countries whose people believe their governments have been chosen in fair elections and whose people continue to falsely believe they have full human rights. Now used to refer to those countries previously referred to as the free world. For example all countries usurped by a New World Order.
America and the CIA and Hillary Clinton have been attacking Veneszuela since 2008. They place sanctions on the country and create chaos all to destroy and undermind and overthrow the Government. Then when the Contry crumbles they blame it on the leadership. I believe Pres Hugo Chavez was killed by Food Poisoning.
How about the US just mind its own Frigging business and stop attacking other countries.
Russia is now involved and tying to stabilize Venezuela to help them. America used to be admired in the world as a beacon of hope. And all our psychopath Government is now, is the villian withe a pattern if destroying countries. The headline propaganda right out if the gate appears to be written by the CIA to dupe ignorant readers. Smart people look at the facts. I bet this story is completely different if you talked with rhe populations in that country. Why dont you post all the harm the US has done to destroy thus country. Connect the dots.
What business is it of the USA ??
I’m tired of our Country interfering in the politics of other Countries.
Crack, thank you for pointing out that we put sanctions on Venezuela.
The USA has become a world bully for the (((globalist 3ew World Order))).
When Gentiles controlled the government, the USA was loved and respected.
Now, since Kennedy was killed and 3ews took over the government, media, education, publishing, etc., etc; everything has turned to a degrading pile of manure.
Aren’t brown people so wonderful? Let’s let them take over our country and see what happens.
If Maduro is a dictator then what do you call those in charge of the US government? What rights do Americans have to change their own government when it has been shown with each election that nothing changes and in fact the people’s rights are being systematically taken away? The situation in Venezuela is all about wealthy imperialists putting and keeping the poor in their place. This is what the US wants for its own people and is tirelessly working to that end.
This is all about devide and conquer, nation destroying to benefit western fascist corporations. If America was so great we would compete with superior products in free trade. What ya afraid of you stupid dopes? The US does world business with the point of a gun. It is embarrassing and sickening.
BTW/. All sanctions are designed for, is to create larger monopolies for US Corporations and profit. The new US sanctions agains Russia is creating the EU to pick sides and harm their countries economies. If any Country does business with Russia they violate the US sanctions and will be attacked just like Russia. It forces those countries to have to buy from the westerm alliances. That is bot free trade, its economic terror. Its just pathetic the Bully the US is in the world. I am ashamed of Trump signing on to Russian sanctions. Its just pathetic.
Cant wait for this to happen in the USA,,,
1,332 Counties Will Have Only One Health Insurer Option Under Obamacare in 2018
“The map currently shows that nationwide 49 counties are projected to have no issuers, meaning that Americans in these counties could be without coverage on the Exchanges in 2018,” a press release for the agency states. “It’s also projected that 1,332 counties—over 40 percent of counties nationwide—could only have one issuer in 2018.”
“The data also show that at least 27,660 Americans currently enrolled for health coverage on the Exchanges live in the counties projected to be without any coverage in 2018 – but, because of the Obamacare individual mandate, those who live in areas with no insurers offering health coverage will still be forced to buy coverage.
A CMS press release predicts that that because of lack of options in the healthcare market, more than 2.3 million Obamacare participants may not be able to receive the coverage they need.
The data also reveal that. between 2016 and 2017, average premiums have risen by 21.6 percent. In addition, carrier participation in the Health Insurance Exchange has declined by 31.2 percent since peak participation in 2015.”
Yea, how do ya like that,,, i say let it all fail, give the people exactly what they voted for
KY MOM, thanks for the update. Too many Americans fail to understand that the current incremental move toward communism is Obamacare and eventually single-payer socialist medicine. It sounds good initially but the devil is in the details. Margaret Thatcher said it best, “The trouble with communism is that you eventually run out of other people’s money.” This failure to learn from history with the many examples of failed socialist paradises will lead to a USA that resembles the current situation in Venezuela.
Their mistake was to follow the ideas of Naomi Klein. Argentina tried it too and they had to kick out their leader because those policies were a disaster.
The same failed menu of faulty policies is being peddled by the British Labour Party. It is not the 1970s. Nationalising businesses and getting workers to sit around in unions holding hands and trying to work out how to run a business will only bring chaos and bankruptcy.
Think of how toxic this would be when you throw in the politically correct, SJW politics of today? Every workplace would be mired in toxic lesbians arguing with angry Muslims attacking white men, and whinying white women wanting more and more time off for ‘care duties’.
That is not the future of business and delivering products and services to people.
On the current path, Venezuela is going to be the world capital for the sex and drug industries and nothing else.
For new Preppers:
This may help you to prep. Find a good recipe (I posted one in the article titled “Australia’s Bureau Caught Tampering With Climate Change Data”).
Plant a garden with the vegtables in the recipe.
Go to a box store and stock up with cases of those items in the recipe.
Buy an All American21 pressure canner and related supplies such as canning jars.
This will give you a base of where to start. You will be able to make and can some items using the recipe, and have useful items for other recipes.
_ I hope this suggestion helps someone.
Look who is calling the kettle black! Is he any relation to mayor Daly?
I don’t admire Maduro and what he does, but he does have more chutzbah than anyone I’ve ever seen. Unbelievable!
