Venezuela’s Socialist President Plans To Disarm Civilians…


Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro has announced he is expanding a plan to disarm civilians.

Speaking on the International Day of Peace, Mr Maduro said his government would invest $47m (£29m) and create 60 new disarmament centres.

According to United Nations figures, Venezuela has the second highest peacetime murder rate in the world after Honduras.

Most of the murders in Venezuela are committed using firearms.

“We are building peace from within, and for that, you need disarmament,” the president said at an event in the capital, Caracas.

Venezuela’s Socialist Government Seizes Control Of U.S. Firm Clorox, Calls It “Temporary Occupation”…




The Venezuelan government announced it was temporarily taking control of a Clorox factory, after the US-based firm said this week it was leaving the country and selling its assets.

Vice President Jorge Arreaza was accompanied by a dozen workers as he entered the plant with the slogan “Chavez lives, the struggle continues,” in reference to late president Hugo Chavez.

“The government of President Nicolas Maduro is temporarily occupying these facilities,” Arreaza said from the plant in the central city of Valles del Tuy, in comments broadcast on state television VTV.

California-based Clorox, which began operations in Venezuela in 1990, announced this week it was leaving the Venezuelan market, citing “operational restrictions” and “economic uncertainty.”

Socialism Success Story: Venezuela Rationing Food Again To Citizens At Supermarkets






Venezuela—Amid worsening shortages, Venezuela recently reached a milestone of dubious distinction: It has joined the ranks of North Korea and Cuba in rationing food for its citizens.

On a recent, muggy morning, Maria Varge stood in line outside a Centro 99 grocery store, ready to scour the shelves for scarce items like cooking oil and milk. But before entering, Ms. Varge had to scan her fingerprint to ensure she wouldn’t buy more than her share.

Despite its technological twist on the old allotment booklet, Venezuela’s new program of rationing is infuriating consumers who say it creates tiresome waits, doesn’t relieve shortages and overlooks the far-reaching economic overhauls the country needs to resolve the problem.

VENEZUELA HEADS FOR A BREAKING POINT






The shortages in Venezuela have become so severe that even long-time Chavistas–supporters of the socialist government of the now deceased Hugo Chavez–are reaching a breaking point.

The New York Times reports the constant struggle to find food and other basic necessities–like diapers and toilet paper–is pushing some people to lose faith in the system they have long believed in:

“I’ve always been a Chavista,” said Ms. Noriega, using a term for a loyal Chávez supporter. But “the other day, I found a Chávez T-shirt I’d kept, and I threw it on the ground and stamped on it, and then I used it to clean the floor. I was so angry. I don’t know if this is his fault or not, but he died and left us here, and things have been going from bad to worse.”

Tweeting for Treatment in Venezuela






It’s a tweet that ultimately fell on deaf ears: “#ServicioPublico Infalgan solution of 10 Mg for injection is needed for Vanessa Chacón.” Sent from San Rafael del Piñal, a small town in Venezuela near the border with Colombia, the tweet was sent on behalf of Chacón, 22, who needed the medicine to survive a severe coronary condition.  Unfortunately, it’s simply not available there — and isn’t likely to be anytime soon.

“My niece is very sick. We haven’t been able to locate the drug in pharmacies or in hospitals,” says Nelson Jaimes, who’s Chacón’s uncle and, coincidentally, a pharmacist. “We who are inside the pharma business can’t locate the products. What can a regular citizen expect to find?”

In Venezuela, several hundred tweets like this go out every day under the hashtag “#ServicioPublico,” meaning “public service.” But few cries for help are answered, and the country is facing a critical shortage of basic medical supplies. The crisis is only getting worse. A crumbling economy and lack of access to foreign currency (worsened by the recent drop in oil prices) means domestic distributors cannot pay their suppliers. That, in turn, has led international medical suppliers to cut shipments and hold back on maintenance of Venezuela’s health care infrastructure. B ills have piled up to the tune of some $245 million — and that doesn’t include money owed to drug companies, maintenance firms or other  health careproviders.

The consequences are being felt across a broad swath of society. Up to 15 percent of the country’s cancer patients are dying due to a lack of radiotherapy treatment, the Venezuelan Society of Oncology and Oncological Radiotherapy has warned.  The situation has become so dire that some professionals who used to work with pharma companies say they’ve cut their relationships because there’s just no medicine for the businesses to supply.

Socialist Paradise: Video Of 14 Year Old Executed In Street By Police In Venezuela





This is a picture of the boy, Kluiverth Roa







The videos you are about to watch are highly disturbing. Do not press play if you are squeamish or easily sickened.

Venezuela’s National Police “Cuerpo de Policía Nacional Bolivariana” or “PNB” for short has been caught on video executing a student in the state of Táchira in the city of San Cristobal.

At approximately noon local time, officers assembled at the end of a two lane street attempting to bring order to disorder caused by protests from students from a local university.

At approximately 1:58 pm local time, a bystander who was a middle school student was dead.

Socialist Venezuela’s Shortage Of Toilet Paper So Bad They Are Considering Swapping Oil For Toilet Paper With Trinidad & Tobago…










Venezuela, plagued with shortages of basic goods, was offered a reprieve by the Prime Minister of neighboring Trinidad & Tobago: exchange oil for tissue paper.

Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar suggested an oil-for-tissue swap in a news conference Tuesday following a meeting in Port of Spain with Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro. She said the deal would benefit both countries.

“The concept of commodity sharing is simple -– the Government of Trinidad and Tobago will purchase goods identified by the Government of Venezuela from T&T’s manufacturers, such as tissue paper, gasoline, and parts for machinery,” Persad-Bissessar said.

In Venezuela, which has the world’s largest oil reserves, citizens line up outside supermarkets for hours seeking a bag of clothing detergent, toilet paper or cooking oil. Price controls and a lack of dollars for importers have emptied stores of many basic goods, a situation Maduro blames on hoarders conducting an “economic war” against his socialist government.[…]

Persad-Bissessar presented the swap proposal as a win-win opportunity for the two nations, separated by an 11-kilometer (6.8-mile) strait off Venezuela’s northeast coast.

Tissue paper and other goods “would then be traded for commodities that are needed for our industries –- in particular bitumen and crude oil -– which can be supplied by Venezuela,” she said, adding that “this proposal is at an planning stages, and we recognize that a monitoring mechanism would be key to its success.”

Noam Chomsky: As Venezuela Struggles to Fix Economy, U.S. Should Stop Trying to Undermine Its Gov’t

Tensions are growing between the United States and Venezuela as the government of President Nicolás Maduro grapples with an economic crisis and a right-wing opposition calling for his removal from office. Venezuela has announced the arrest of an unspecified number of Americans on charges of espionage, new restrictions on the number of U.S. diplomats allowed in Venezuela, and rule changes that will subject Americans to the same visa requirements Venezuelans face in the United States. Maduro has also unveiled a list of American politicians barred from entering Venezuela in response to U.S. sanctions against Venezuelan officials last year. Maduro has repeatedly accused right-wing opponents of fomenting a coup with U.S. support. The White House has denied the charges, but said last week it is considering "tools" to "steer the Venezuelan government in the direction ... they should be headed." Weighing in on Venezuela, Noam Chomsky says the United States should be working with the Maduro government, not trying to undermine it.

http://www.democracynow.org/2015/3/3/noam_chomsky_as_venezuela_struggles_to

Chomskys Part

NOAM CHOMSKY: Well, one kind of question we should immediately ask ourselves is brought up by your observation that Venezuela is planning to impose on U.S. citizens the same restrictions that the United States imposes on Venezuelans. Why do we impose those restrictions? Suppose, say, that Iran was sending people to the United States to foment opposition to the government and call for change in the regime. How would we react to that? Unimaginable. But we consider it our right to do that elsewhere. Incidentally, this is not a justification of Venezuelan actions. The fact that we do it doesn’t make it justified. If others do it, no, it’s not justified. Venezuela has severe internal problems. There’s no doubt about that.

Venezuela to install finger scanners in supermarkets to tackle hoarding, panic buying amid shortages


CARACAS, VENEZUELA (AP) –  Venezuela will begin installing some 20,000 fingerprint scanners at supermarkets nationwide in a bid to stamp out hoarding and panic buying, which the government blames for long lines and widespread shortages of basic goods.

The oil-rich nation has been selectively rolling out the rationing system for months at state-run supermarkets along the western border with Colombia, where smuggling of price-controlled goods is a major problem.

On Saturday, President Nicolas Maduro said that seven large private retail chains had voluntarily agreed to install the scanners.

"I ask for the the comprehension of all of Venezuela, to understand this problem, because there is a lot of manipulation taking place," Maduro said at the inauguration of a state-run supermarket.

Economists say the effort is bound to fail. They blame decade-old price controls for destroying local manufacturing and attracting smugglers who can resell the goods on the black market and in Colombia for huge gains.

In recent days, those profits have become juicier as a result of Venezuela's tanking currency. The bolivar has slid 35 percent in the past two weeks on the black market and now trades at nearly one-fortieth the official rate used to import food, according to DolarToday, a website that tracks the illegal rate based on currency trades along the border.

The fall of world oil prices by nearly half since November is also diminishing the supply of dollars available to import everything from milk to cars. Crude oil accounts for 95 percent of Venezuela's exports.

As Venezuela's economic crisis deepens the government is increasingly lashing out at its opponents and the United States, which it says is trying to sow instability and set the stage for a coup.

But many Venezuelans point to Maduro. Recent polls say the embattled president has a 22 percent approval rating, the lowest since the start of the socialist revolution 16 years ago by the late President Hugo Chavez

On Friday, a delegation of visiting South American foreign ministers announced that the region would help Venezuela address the shortages.

But many in the opposition expressed dismay that the 12-nation Unasur bloc did not take a tougher stance against the government amid what they say is an impending humanitarian crisis

VENEZUELA CONDUCTS MILITARY EXERCISES, CITING US THREAT







CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) -- Venezuelan soldiers are starting 10 days of military exercises that the president of the socialist-governed South American country says are needed to protect against a looming threat from the U.S.

Nearly 100,000 members of the Venezuelan armed forces began conducting exercises at points all over country Saturday.

The U.S. imposed sanctions earlier this week on several Venezuelan officials accused of human rights violations, and President Nicolas Maduro has said his country will take steps to protect itself from the hostile U.S. government.

Defense Minister Vladimir Padrino Lopez inaugurated the exercises at Fort Tiuna in Caracas, the largest military installation in Venezuela. He said the U.S. sanctions constitute an imminent danger and the armed forces must ready themselves to ensure the country's independence.

The way I see it, these sanctions aren't really a precursor to war, but rather, an attempt to further destabilize the country and find divisions in the armed forces, so that a government more subservient to US interests can seize power; further to that, and considering the timing, it's probably also an attempt to play the improvement of US - Cuba relations against Venezuela. So, in short, the usual story of US meddling in South America, though fortunately for the people of the region, coming from a US that is far less influential than what it was in previous decades.

Video: Sociology professor goes full sociology professor onboard plane










52-year-old Karen Halnon, an associate professor of sociology at Pennsylvania State University-Abington.




Why so?
I’m very knowledgable about that part of the world. I teach about U.S. imperialism in Latin America. And the U.S. has declared war against Venezuela. That means military aggression. They tried to take out Hugo with a coup, and then they took him out with cancer.

Oh?
It is my opinion — and Fidel agrees with me …

As in Castro?
Yes, Fidel agrees with me that the CIA had some involvement in giving him cancer, and so he died very sadly. And now Nicolas Maduro is the president and the U.S. somehow thinks this is a better position for the U.S. now.

It’s not?
No, what they don’t realize is that Maduro is carrying on the revolution. It’s not like Raul in Cuba. There is every intention of carrying on the revolution. Fifty more years.


The New Times reported that the incident occurred on a flight from Nicaragua to Miami. Halnon also lit a cigarette on the plane, the New Times reported.

“Yes, that was me, and I was actually smoking a cigarette briefly,” Halnon told Miami’s CBS affiliate. “I took a few puffs out of it. … Every other revolutionary smokes.”
