    “I thank President Díaz-Canel and the Cuban people for hosting this important meeting within the framework of our fight for a multicentric and pluripolar world. By reaffirming our commitment to developing nations, we are building the century of the people of the south,” said Venezuela’s Nicolás Maduro as the “G77+China” summit commenced in Havana. The conference, which was attended by more than 100 countries, including Iran, Saudi Arabia, Nigeria, and Nicaragua was replete with speeches calling for a new world order – an order where China leads and the US follows.
  • 'Vomitivo': Brazil's Lula hails and welcomes Venezuela's Maduro, calling him just a victim of bad press

    It's good times for Venezuela's vile communist dictator, Nicolas Maduro.Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva met his Venezuelan counterpart Nicolas Maduro on Monday and called out US sanctions against Venezuela as "extremely exaggerated."Maduro, who is seen as a controversial leader internationally, met Lula on his visit to Brazil. Maduro was greeted by Lula with a hug and back-slap in the presidential palace of Brasilia. Effectively now, Venezuela has been welcomed back into the community of civilized democratic nations, or at least, the community of BRICs and non-aligned nations, no longer a pariah state.Joe Biden sent out some of the...

    White House defends decision on easing Venezuela sanctions for oil Monday After the White House claimed that U.S. oil producers have "plenty of opportunities" to drill domestically, some executives are slamming the administration’s "completely inaccurate," "flat-out lie." "We've basically tracked about 125 specific actions that this administration and the Democratic Congress have done to slow down or stop oil production in America," American Energy Alliance President Tom Pyle said on "Varney & Co." Tuesday. "He has an 'America last' energy policy." When asked by Fox News correspondent Peter Doocy why President Biden "would rather let U.S. companies drill for oil...

    The massive news coverage of Gov. Ron DeSantis' "political stunt" of sending 50 illegal aliens to Martha's Vineyard reminds me of the media's "political stunt" of referring to illegals as "legal asylum-seekers."Number one: They broke into our country. They're illegal aliens. Number two: All asylum claims are frauds. Every single one.Asylum is nothing but a conveyer belt to bring the worst people on Earth to our shores. You say you turned your own country into a hellhole? Fantastic! Come right in!No one gets asylum from a well-run country. Why would we want to admit people who have demonstrated the wisdom,...

    Venezuela is not sending its best. A leaked Department of Homeland Security (DHS) intelligence report warns that Venezuela President Nicolas Maduro is emptying its prisons and sending criminals to the border. Border Patrol agents are being warned to be on the lookout for violent criminals illegally entering the country. Congressional Republicans want DHS Secretary Mayorkas to release the report.Several informants confirmed that many of the Venezuelan migrants crossing the southern border are convicts. They include those convicted of rape, murder, and extortion. Identifying Venezuelans with criminal records is almost impossible because of a lack of effective diplomatic relations between the...

    A former Trump administration official's claim that he orchestrated government overthrows abroad is making waves in Venezuela. Venezuela's National Assembly voted on Thursday to condemn the comments by former US National Security Advisor John Bolton. Its leader Jorge Rodriguez described the apparent admission as "an extraordinary feat of brazenness." In an interview on Wednesday, Bolton told CNN's Jake Tapper that he had "helped plan coups d'etat -- not here, but, you know, other places." He was the Trump's White House point person in dealing with Venezuela's 2019 constitutional crisis, which saw a group of opposition politicians attempt to restore democracy...

    Turns out Nicolás Maduro's still the guy the world has to talk to in Venezuela. But recognizing Juan Guaidó as the country's legitimate president is still a useful tool. This week Colombia’s leftist President-elect Gustavo Petro said he recently discussed bilateral issues with Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro — despite the fact that Colombia does not recognize Maduro as Venezuela’s legitimate head of state. But even top aides to President Biden are visiting Caracas lately to talk with top Maduro aides, even though the U.S. doesn't recognize Maduro, either. (On Thursday, the Biden Administration said it would make it easier for...

    Iranian Narco-Jihad against the United States Yoram Ettinger, News1, May 19, 2022 Shiite clerics in Iran and Lebanon have ruled that drugs sold to "infidels" in Western countries, and especially to "the great American Satan", are believed to be more effective than war via missiles. "Many are wondering how Iran is financing its subversive and terrorist activities in the Persian Gulf and the Middle East, in addition to significant activity in the West, despite the consequences of the economic sanctions imposed on it. The answer lies in Iran's involvement in the distribution of drugs (and billions of dollars in...

    On Tuesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Jose Diaz-Balart Reports,” Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ) reacted to the Biden administration reportedly looking to increase oil imports from Venezuela by stating that there is no need to go to the Maduro regime in Venezuela that President Biden declared a national security threat five days ago for more oil when there are other nations the U.S. can get oil from and domestic production that is already licensed.

    The Biden administration is seeking to ease oil sanctions on Venezuela as part of a broader U.S. strategy to temper oil prices that have skyrocketed because of Russia’s war in Ukraine, according to people familiar with the matter. U.S. officials began rare face-to-face meetings with Venezuelan officials in Caracas over the weekend, with a view to allowing Venezuelan crude oil back on to the open international market, these people said.

    Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro yesterday expressed his firm support for Russia’s “special military operation” in Ukraine in a telephone conversation with his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin, according to the Kremlin. “Nicolás Maduro expressed his strong support for Russia’s decisive actions and condemned the destabilising activities of the United States and NATO,” the official statement said. The Venezuelan president also emphasized “the importance of countering the campaign of lies and disinformation launched by Western countries.” During the conversation, which took place at the initiative of the Venezuelan side, Putin shared with Maduro his vision of the development of events around Ukraine...

    While the attention of much of America has been focused on Afghanistan, it’s worth noting a development closer to home: Negotiations between Venezuela’s Maduro regime and the democratic opposition forces led by Juan Guaido officially commenced on Friday in Mexico City. The two teams met for the official launch of negotiations, though behind the scenes talks have been under way for weeks — and real negotiations will not actually start until September. The negotiations have an unusual structure: Each side has named one “second” (to borrow from the terminology of duels) and several other facilitators who will play a smaller...

    So much for their being just "Danish-style" social democrats. Venezuela's "democratically elected" Marxist dictator Nicolás Maduro is a well known global pariah. He's driven his country's once vibrant oil industry into the ground, creating an ecological disaster to go with it. His socialist expropriations have made the country an economic hellhole, with six million Venezuelans driven out as refugees. On the political front, he's rigged elections, beaten and jailed dissidents, destroyed all independent branches of government such as the judiciary, and engaged in the sort of election fraud Democrats can only dream of. As for the starving remainders still in...

    Representatives from the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) met Friday with Venezuela’s contested President Nicolás Maduro. Participants in the meeting, which took place in Venezuela’s capital of Caracas, included the chairperson of the DSA’s National Political Committee, members of the International Committee, and members of the organization’s Political Formation, Foreign Policy and Bilateral Relations sections, local news outlet Telesur reported. Venezuela has experienced widespread protests against the Maduro regime and nearly five million Venezuelans have been forced to flee the country under his rule due to food and medical shortages.

    The Venezuelan Navy illegally entered the waters of Guyana this weekend and forced a ship contracted by Exxon Mobil to conduct oil research in the area to vacate, The incident, which Guyanese authorities angrily denounced and vowed to bring to the attention of the United Nations, reignites a feud Venezuelan socialist dictator Nicolás Maduro began with the neighboring country in 2015, claiming as much as two-thirds of Guyana itself belonged to Venezuela. Guyana has repeatedly noted that Venezuela signed an agreement in 1899 on the territory in question and no disputes remain as to who owns that land. Exxon Mobil...
