New York Times Endorses US-Sponsored Coup Attempt in Venezuela

The Times is a longstanding mouthpiece for wealth, power and privilege. Its record is deplorable – pro-business, anti-populist, endorsing all US wars of aggression, color revolutions and coups by other means against sovereign independent states. It denigrated Hugo Chavez throughout his tenure, calling him “a would-be dictator…a populist demagogue…an authoritarian caudillo (strongman),” among other pejoratives. It bashes President Nicolas Maduro the same way. Its history shows a consistent record ...Read full article...

The Olympics of Misery

RIO DE JANEIRO – When Rio de Janeiro was chosen as an Olympic city in 2009, nobody foresaw a Brazil in such a decaying state as it is today. The then President, Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, who celebrated victory effusively, never imagined that the country’s economy could make a turn for the worse. Back then, and despite the global economic crisis, Brazil saw a GDP growth of over ...Read full article...

Venezuela’s Slow, Painful Death

Venezuela is a rare case of a nation condemned to die a slow painful death by self-destruction and foreign intervention at the same time. The last shoe to drop for the Bolivarian nation is the sharp decline in oil prices, which was the only lifeline for a country that, despite its natural riches, is still 100% dependent on crude oil sales to finance its gargantuan government-run bureaucracy. Venezuela’s economic ...Read full article...

Brazil’s Double Coup D’État

BRASILIA – Democracy is not perfect, but it’s the best we have. This type of discourse is often heard from the mouths of conformist people to justify social and political outrageous crimes and the attempts to overthrow governments via fake revolutions.

Venezuela Shows Us What an Electricity Shortage Looks Like

The SHTF might be a lot more subtle than an EMP or a massive natural disaster. We preppers tend to think in black and white, but there are some gray threats out there that few are considering. What if, instead of a total power outage, our country suffered a serious electricity shortage? That’s exactly what has been going on in Venezuela, since they don’t have enough problems running out ...Read full article...

Lula knows no Limits to his Corruption

Hypocritical Mexican Immigration Policy

The Mexican government deports thousands of unaccompanied Central American children instead of offering them asylum and protection it has agreed to provide.

Dilma Rousseff is Delusional

Under her presidency and that of her predecessor, Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, Brazil went from being the promising, third world jewel to becoming the subject of jokes worldwide.
