Juan Guaido

I don’t often disagree with President Trump or Vice President Pence on policy, but what we’re hearing regarding the whole Venezuela situation bothers me.

Everyone in their right minds would agree that Nicolás Maduro Moros, current president of Venezuela is a bad guy. And by bad guy, I mean like spawn of Satan bad guy. As bad as was Hugo Chávez, Maduro is worse.

Conditions in Venezuela are already terrible and getting worse all the time. Food is scarce and clean water, almost nonexistent. People are being forced to drink and cook what little food they have in the same foul water in which they wash their clothes (by hand) and children bath in. It’s a miracle that diseases haven’t yet run rampant.

Yet Maduro is unfazed, blaming the plight of “his” people on outside forces aligning against him and his regime. Sounds a lot like Kim Jong Un. read more

President Trump sent 59 Cruise Missiles into Syria. Unlike Bill Clinton’s feeble attempt at a Cruise Missile strike which hit an empty aspirin factory in Khartoum Sudan, the Trump strike hit the mark.

The missile attack was retaliation for a chemical attack launched by Assad on the Syrian people. As the Assad air strike originated from Shayrat Air Base in Assad controlled Homs Province, this was the logical target for the Trump Cruise Missile attack.

This naturally led to a worldwide mental melt down and conjectures that this is the first official volley of World War III. And who knows – it may be. But I wouldn’t be too quick to jump to that conclusion.

There are some real bad actors in this conflict and I’m not sure which is worse – Bashar al-Assad or Vladimir Putin. On the surface Assad would seem to be the personification of evil, and he indeed is, but we know he won’t lift a finger without first checking with the Godfather, Putin. Personally, I think this was Putin’s doing.

For the last eight years, old Vlad has basically had the run of the globe, to go anywhere and do anything he wishes without fear of reprisal from Commander Lead-from-Behind, Obama. read more
