SHOWDOWN AT THE BORDER:

Today, President Trump is holding a rally in South Flordia to raise awareness of the crisis in Venezuela particularly at the border of Columbia where Senator Rubio was with the U S Humanitarian Aid. Will the Venezuelan Army STOP the food and medicine that is needed by the people gathered there? This may be Maduro's last stand.

Venezuelan soldiers to guard border ahead of aid entry, minister says

Venezuelan soldiers to guard border ahead of aid entry, minister says

http://news.trust.org/item/20190219192150-z7baw

"CARACAS, Feb 19 (Reuters) - Venezuelan troops will remain stationed along the country's borders to prevent territorial violations, the defense minister said on Tuesday, ahead of the opposition's plan to bring in humanitarian aid to alleviate an economic crisis......"

El Jefe is serious about keeping aid out of his country.

SOCIALISM????

Maduro, soon to be ex-president of Venezuela claims they don't need AID because the Venezuelan People are not beggars... Friday, February 23 is the day "caravans" will try to cross the border with the AID... Will the Border Guards stop them from entering the country and distributing the much-needed food, medicine, and other items for basic health care.

The CIA’s View of Venezuela:

What we Learn from the Archives

In 2017, then-U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) director Mike Pompeo said: “we are very hopeful that there can be a [political] transition in Venezuela and we the CIA is doing its best to understand the dynamic there [sic], so that we can communicate to our State Department and to others.” CIA monitoring of the political situation and interference in Venezuela is, of course, nothing new.

Guaido Calls for March on Caracas as Venezuela Blackout Drags On Three Nights

Quote:
Caracas (AFP) – Venezuela’s opposition leader Juan Guaido on Saturday called for a nationwide march on Caracas to crank up the pressure on embattled President Nicolas Maduro, as the country endured its third night largely without power.

The massive blackout crippling the oil-rich but economically troubled South American nation has fueled the political standoff between Guaido, who is recognized as Venezuela’s leader by more than 50 countries, and Maduro, who is clinging to power.

No national data was available about the impact of the power outage, but an NGO said at least 15 patients with advanced kidney disease died after they stopped receiving dialysis treatments in darkened hospitals.

As night fell Saturday, the power across much of the country — which first went off Thursday — was still not on. Businesses remained shut, hospitals struggled to operate, and public transport barely functioned.

Sure have had my fill of watchin' this debacle.

Conditions getting WORSE:

Saw on the nightly news that the Venezuelan people were getting water from the river which is untreated and contaminated. Still no electric power. How long before the military and police realize that the situation is rapidly deteriorating. The next phase will be an epidemic of disease, with people dying in the streets by the hundreds. AN INTERVENTION IS NECESSARY, WHERE IS THE UNITED NATIONS & WHAT ARE THEY DOING.

They are also going into the sewer systems in the cities.

Let's see where critical mass is.

When is the U.N. Humanitarian crisis declared and blue helmets showing up?

THE UNITED NATIONS?????

IS A WORTHLESS ORGANIZATION. The Hqrs. should be moved to China or Russia. The situation in Venezuela is beyond desperate If the people had the means to defend themselves against the socialist nightmare the current President and his military would be gone, just my opinion.

Well, they came in apparently as the little UN ADVON was departing. (Nothing further from the UN as they're all-a-dither now over looking into ways to protect places of worship. 'Cause they're so good at actually protecting people.
