Bi-Partisan support for sanctions against Venezuela gather steam

After months of ignoring the plight of Venezuelans a growing bi-partisan consensus is emerging. Led by Marco Rubio, a number of Republican  and Democrat senators are now planning legislation imposing sanctions on Venezuela. To no one’s surprise, the Obama Regime is opposing this.

WASHINGTON — The Obama administration said in a Senate hearing Thursday it was hesitant to use individual sanctions as a tactic in the Venezuelan political crisis, saying that doing so could escalate the situation into a fight between the Maduro regime and the United States rather than a struggle between that country’s people and their government.

In response, Democrats and Republicans on the Senate Foreign Relations Committeesharply criticized the administration, indicating it was being far too timid in pushing back against the government of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro and its repressive tactics against political protesters.

Sen. Marco Rubio, a Florida Republican, was among the sharpest critics, blasting officials from the State Department for failing to advocate for sanctions against individuals in Venezuela although sanctions have been used – and continue to be used – elsewhere.

Citing sanctions against individuals in Russia for that country’s actions in Ukraine, Rubio asked what the difference was between repressive officials there and those in Venezuela.

“We sanction human rights violators all the time,” Rubio said. “The only difference between those sanctions, those people, and others, is they spend their weekends in Miami.”

Better late than never.


Venezuelan Opposition leader Leopoldo Lopez writes from jail

Leopoldo Lopez who was arrested by the 3r World Liberation Regime writes a letter to the world from his jail.

Los Teques, Venezuela — As I compose these words from the Ramo Verde military prison outside Caracas, I am struck by how much Venezuelans have suffered.

For 15 years, the definition of “intolerable” in this country has declined by degrees until, to our dismay, we found ourselves with one of the highest murder rates in the Western Hemisphere, a 57 percent inflation rate and a scarcity of basic goods unprecedented outside of wartime.

Our crippled economy is matched by an equally oppressive political climate. Since student protests began on Feb. 4, more than 1,500 protesters have been detained and more than 50 have reported that they were tortured while in police custody. Over 30 people, including security forces and civilians, have died in the demonstrations. What started as a peaceful march against crime on a university campus has exposed the depth of this government’s criminalization of dissent.

I have been in prison for more than a month. On Feb. 12, I urged Venezuelans to exercise their legal rights to protest and free speech — but to do so peacefully and without violence. Three people were shot and killed that day. An analysis of video by the news organization Últimas Noticias determined that shots were fired from the direction of plainclothes military troops.

In the aftermath of that protest, President Nicolás Maduro personally ordered my arrest on charges of murder, arson and terrorism. Amnesty International said the charges seemed like a “politically motivated attempt to silence dissent.” To this day, no evidence of any kind has been presented.

Soon, more opposition mayors, elected by an overwhelming majority in December’s elections, will join me behind bars. Last week the government arrested the mayor of San Cristóbal, where the student protests began, as well as the mayor of San Diego, who has been accused of disobeying an order to remove protesters’ barricades. But we will not stay silent. Some believe that speaking out only antagonizes the ruling party — inviting Mr. Maduro to move more quickly to strip away rights — and provides a convenient distraction from the economic and social ruin that is taking place. In my view, this path is akin to a victim of abuse remaining silent for fear of inviting more punishment.

Sadly The Venezuelans are on their own. Ukrainian Euro-Socialists are more than important than freedom loving Venezuelans it seems.


Venezuelan Pregnant woman killed

While the media and online outlets continues to whip people in a frenzy over the Ukraine, people deserving of our support have been abandoned. It has been 2 months now since the Venezuelan people have risen up against the 3rd World Liberation regime of Nicolas Madura. On a daily basis Venezuelans are beaten and killed by the Marxist regime, while the rest of the world with the exception of Colombia has turned their backs on these people. Parts of Venezuela like Tachira have fallen out of government control and many opposition members are now armed. Yet none of this is being discussed.

In the latest atrocity of the 3rd World Liberation regime or Madura, a pregnant woman named Adriana Urquiola was gunned down by government thugs in Caracas.

CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — A pregnant woman has been killed amid a protest outside the Venezuelan capital of Caracas. It’s unclear why she was fired upon.

The mayor of Guaicaipuro says Adriana Urquiola died Sunday night in that municipality after she left a bus that was stuck in traffic as the result of a barricade built by anti-government protesters. She doesn’t appear to have been participating. The 28 year-old began walking toward the barricade, and was shot in the head. She was five months pregnant.

The lack of outrage over the situation in Venezuela is disgusting. I fully expect the Obama regime and Democrats to support the Madura Regime. But seeing how the Republican Party and its outlets have turned their backs on the Venezuelan people is despicable act.



Venezuelan Beauty Queen dies from gun shot

Genesis Carmona a Venezuelan beauty queen who was Miss Tourism for Venezuela dies protesting the regime in the city of Valencia. She was shot in the head and killed instantly, thus becoming a martyr for the Venezuelan Liberty movement.

Venezuelan beauty queen Genesis Carmona made headlines after being shot during anti-government protest in Valencia, part of several massive demonstrations going around the country on Tuesday, February 18th.

The 22-year-old was rushed in a motorcycle to the Centro Medico Guerra Mendez in Valencia, where she was operated and kept in intensive care thereafter.

 She was pronounced dead on Wednesday, Feb. 19, according to Reuters, after many media outlets reported that there was a high possibility the model would lose her vision.

Carmona suffered a gunshot wound to the head as a result of the anti-government protests held Feb. 18, according to several media reports, including “Venezuela al Dia.”


You may be wondering, who was this beautiful young girl and why is she causing mayhem in the news?

Genesis Carmona was famous in her country for being a beauty queen.

She was crowned Miss Turismo Carabobo last year at the age of 21.

She competed for the title of Miss Turismo Venezuela among 25 other gorgeous women.

Prior to owning the promising 2013 title, Carmona was known for being an uprising model in Venezuela.

The 5 feet and 8 and a half inch doll with hazel eyes strutted many catwalks including Venezuela In Moda and Fashion Week Valencia.

She also modeled for a list of reputed designers such as Eduardo Kano, Olga Bolaños, Eduardo Macero and Franco Montoro.

Sadly no one in America is speaking out in support of the Venezuelan protestors. The nation builders in the GOP are silent and as expected, the Marxist Democrats are not saying anything either. If these people were Muslims, you best bet the media and our bi-partisan elites would be falling all over themselves to support the protestors. But since they are Hispanic Catholics, no one cares.
