Number of Venezuelan Seeking U.S. asylum soars as economic crisis deepens

The number of applicants has accelerated sharply since December 2015, when the opposition scored a landslide victory in congressional elections, giving hope to many that it could disrupt 17 years of socialist rule. 

Note: Venezuelan Elections DID NOT solve the problem, people of the country voted for a new congress and it HAS NOT made any difference. Current president was "installed" by Chavez supporters after he died. Chavez changed the constitution and it is almost impossible regain control, anytime soon.

http://latino.foxnews.com/latino/news/2016/06/19/number-venezuelan-seeking-asylum-in-us-rises-as-economic-crisis-deepens/
edit: added video: http://video.foxnews.com/v/5096929100001/massive-jump-in-venezuelans-seeking-us-asylum/?#sp=show-clips

This is what you can expect in the United States if the Democrats win the Presidency.

1. Justices NOMINATED by the President.
2. More regulation that produces loss of jobs and shortages of basic materials
3. The finish of the coal industry.
4. The decline and stagnation of the oil industry.
5. The finalization of government control over the Health Care Industry.
6. Approval of more DEVISTATING trade agreements.

These ideas will make it extremely difficult for the citizens of the U.S. to have any control over the government, health care, energy use and job creation. Add in control of the courts, it's all over but the shouting.

Venezuelans voted for "something promised" that sounded like they'd get something for nothing and can't get rid of it.

OH,, can't happen here ? Happened in Sweden and happened FAST, not because of constitutional changes but because Sweden was 99% liberal and the political system "destroyed" THE WAY SWEDEN WAS and it will never return. Destroyed and now it appears it's the fault of the Swedish citizens for NOT "bending over" to make the Refugees feel more at home.

There are already many Venesuelans who have been granted permenent resident status in the US due the to horrible conditions, including lack of food, the that country.

Some are here and more on the way.

The government has no rights. Only the PEOPLE have rights that empower the government.

This country, with its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it. Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing government, they can exercise their constitutional right of amending it, or exercise their revolutionary right to overthrow it.

Life is not the way it's supposed to be. It is they way it is. The way we cope with it, is what makes the difference.

Wonder how many have come to the U.S. in the last 5 years on legal tourist visas. Most have no intention of returning.

Bright side, they're not terrorists, have enough money to buy a plane ticket and stay out of sight.

How do illegal immigrants enroll their kids in school?

Could it be the schools are paid with PUBLIC taxes and controlled by the Democrats or a form of Republican taxation without representation.

I'd check it out first. Think this was Venezuelas 7th Miss Universe Win.



BTW: Venezuela is now officially a dictatorship but a Democratic Dictatorship. More unfortunate victims are on the way, everyday.

WAIT,, won't know till tomorrow, Venezuela lacks a few percentages points to fulfill the peoples dream of being a total Democratic communist Dictatorship.

Voting tomorrow, the police and military are helping to keep the election safe and fair. They have consulted with H. Cliton on how to git'r'done.

Venezuela GRAND communist Plan is turning brown, runny and odorus. Not for everyone only the working folks,, communist leaders are doing very well indeed while the country slides further into chaos.

Communism: Venezuela’s Minimum Wage Crashes to Under Four Dollars a Month

The monthly minimum wage in the communist country of Venezuela has crashed to under four dollars a month as hyperinflation continues to crush the country’s shattered economy.
Despite dictator Nicolás Maduro’s five minimum wage hikes over the course of 2017, the monthly minimum wage of 177,507 bolivares is equivalent to $3.41, working out at just over two cents an hour, according to latest real value exchange rates.


Anyone who wants the U.S. to become a communist Nation has to be crazy or demented. There is the possibility they have been brainwashed somehow? Did it happen in the halls of higher education?

5 wage hikes and yet the currency drops faster than the country can increase the wages. SOUND FAMILIAR , as in the $15 an hour minimum wage in the U.S.

Folks are kidding themselves into believing the government will make wages for "doing very little" pay handsomely.

PS: the "auto corrector" changes Social.ism to communism. Personally believe Social.ism is "on the way" to communism, just not there yet.

Remember when Trump was campaigning and talked about helping Venezuela? Shortly after taking office he said Venezuela needed to get their act together and distanced himself from the 'help' talk?

Maybe he was advised about this little problem:
Nearly 100,000 Cuban Regime Agents Have Run Venezuela Since 2010

Thousands of Cubans hold key positions in various Venezuelan government sectors, particularly in the national security and intelligence services used to monitor politicians, opposition members, business executives, and the population as a whole to keep the communist regime in power, noted retired Maj. Gen. Antonio Rivero. Rivero has been an outspoken critic of the so-called Bolivarian revolution.

Flew thru Panama last week and talked with several Venezuelans. Sound like they might not be going back.

Verified what had been posted above about Cubans running Venezuela. They said they were sure it was 60,000,, the article says 100,000 but acted amazed !!! Said it's unbelievable and they said it's true.

More over A cuban had been appointed to head the military. He had been given a little more than advisory status,, he WAS in charge and if someone didn't like what he ordered,, they didn't quit,, they were gone.

Riots the previous week had resulted in 20 dead and 1,500 injured. One of the deaths was by tear gas,, not the gas, he was "shot" at close range in the chest. Couldn't find the exact report and don't believe everything read by a "human rights" group,, but this sounds pretty close.

New ray of hope,, Venezuela to launch new cryptocurrency. Watch out bitcoin.

Theory must be "it couldn't get any worse." Can't wait to see what happens. Called the "petro". Most say "fail" but any port in a storm, got the backing of cuba, what could go wrong.

Oh -No looks like the President of Venezuela is getting worried the Military might stage a coup.

Venezuela: Maduro Purging Military as Fears of Coup Grow

Venezuelan dictator Nicolás Maduro is purging high-ranking members of his military as fears within his government grow that they may lose the institution vital to his power.

Guess if your Military thinks you should go, you should leave,, when in South America.

With 100,000 cubans who are actually running the country, (military) this may not be a "standard" coup, it might be a CUBAN COUP. The cubans need oil and now it's within their grasp. Cuban or Venezuelan it would NOT make much difference, looks like Madura will be gone before the summer is over.

Venezuela in experiencing massive PLANNED power outages.

Caution: When the S.o.c.i.a.lists come out with a plan,, it's NOW your fault when things turn brown and runny for not helping implement the plan.

The situation has been made worse by dwindling rains??? Dwindling RAINS, WTH does rains have to do with producing electricity?

Ah Ha, this:
Partly this is a story about drought. More than 60 percent of Venezuela's electricity comes from hydropower, and a lack of rainfall this winter due to El Niño has led to low water levels at its all-important Guri Dam.

BUT:
But the bigger story here is that Venezuela's so.cia.list government has badly mismanaged the electric grid for years. Since 2000, the country has failed to add enough electric capacity to satisfy soaring demand, making it incredibly vulnerable to disruptions at its existing dams. Venezuela has been enduring periodic blackouts and rationing ever since 2009 — and there's no sign things will improve anytime soon.

Food and power shortage? Then there is no need for power to cook things you don't have,,, so what's the problem? No geeks in Venezuela?


Ha, bet there will be more geeks very soon. Might get so bad the cows will need to be treated for human bite marks.

Getting worse, 1,000,000% inflation projected (how can that be?), relatives overseas are shipping in food, no medicine, list goes on.

Only took around 12 years to crater and getting worse every year.

Venezuela's communist dream became a nightmare and death sentence for some.

This won't fix the problem but the current Venezuelan president (Maduro) is about to run short on dollars. Color Madura GONE.

A U.S. federal judge authorized the seizure of Citgo Petroleum Corp. to satisfy a Venezuelan government debt, a ruling that could set off a scramble among Venezuela’s many unpaid creditors to wrest control of its only obviously seizable U.S. asset.

Everyday it just gets worse in Social.ist Venezuela. It isn't like there's NO WATER in Venezuela,, just not a lot of CLEAN drinking water.

POINT: Social.ism is a failure, a total failure as are all of it's variations.

http://www.ipsnews.net/2014/06/venezuelans-thirsty-in-a-land-of-abundant-water/

The Antifia and hardcore communists/communists are hoping no one notices Venezuela. Won't see much on the news because they can't figure out how to blame Venezuela's rise from riches to failure on TRUMP.


If you think they're going to give you your country back without a fight, you're sadly mistaken.

Venezuela has a guaranteed formula for FIXING all of it's problems,, surprise, surprise it does not include anything to replace their SOCIAL_IST society started by Chavez and continued by Maduro.

The answer is NOT TO FIX the problem but to TRY and fix one the symptoms of the problem. Sounds crazy to me.

Venezuela’s social_ist president Nicolás Maduro announced a bizarre set of new economic regulations to try to reverse the economic destruction he has inflicted for years. In his Friday night speech, he said: “I want the country to recover and I have the formula. Trust me.

The first part of his “trust me” formula was to devalue the bolivar currency by 96 percent, then introduce a new currency, the Bolivar Soberano (“sovereign bolivar”) which is pegged to a pseudo-bitcoin-like crypto-currency called the “petro,” which is pegged to the price of oil, where oil is produced by Venezuela’s collapsing oil industry.


https://tinyurl.com/venezula-fix-problem

Guess he's been listening to Wonder girl communist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the new face of the left, apparently thinks that capitalism has just been invented. Here is what she said in an interview: “Capitalism has not always existed in the world and will not always exist in the world.”

I like it, steal money from everybody by issuing IOU's, then cancel the IOU's. Sounds like sound economic recovery.

That is how we can get rid of the deficit and end poverty, hand everybody $1,000,000. It has worked in every country to do so.

The latest idea should be simpler, however it requires an App (for your non_existant cell phone).

Personally believe anything that requires an app to explain probably won't work worth a darn, but hope springs eternal.

As noted by Bloomberg, the app converts the Venezuelan bolívar into dictator Nicolás Maduro’s new invention, the “sovereign bolívar,” which appears to have the same value as the original currency but with fewer zeroes at the end.
Understand that? it gets worse. The wizard of OZ couldn't have done better.

Seems the latest Madura "FIX" isn't working as intended. WHO WOULD HAVE GUESSED.

Maduro did however cause mass confusion after his issuance of the “sovereign bolívar" last week. Guess the app for your "electronic device" wasn't helpful or only Maduro and his cronies had the device?

THERE IS A NEW IDEA, something for people to "take to the bank". Actually this might work and seems a good idea under the circumstances. Remember when people weren't allowed to have gold coins in the U.S. and now we can?

Venezuela’s communist dictator Nicolás Maduro proposed providing people with gold bars as an alternative to traditional currency.

This "gold bar" idea is something that may mix fix the mess. Can't wait to hear about the results.

The sentence at the end of the article saying "Many workers have also become alienated over Maduro’s installation of former military general Manuel Quevedo as head of the company, who pledged to “consolidate the deepening of social_ism” within the company. So, if at first you don't succeed keep trying the same thing over and over again.

Taking zeros off the currency has been done in many countries. Taking three zeros off the Mexican Peso late last century seems to have worked fairly well. I was in France around 1960 when they were using both the old Franc & a new Franc worth 100 old Francs.
I would like for us to have a new Dollar worth 10 old Dollars so coins would be useful again & checks would be easier to write.

Maduro goes begging to CHINA for money to keep his Social_ist Regime afloat. Honestly, no better place than another communist country to get some help.

Maduro visited China from Thursday to Sunday, seeking funds to keep his regime afloat. Thanks to nearly two decades of communist mismanagement of the economy and violent repression of opposition voices, Venezuela is currently undergoing the worst humanitarian crisis in its history.

Wow, 4 days !!! Must be a great place to visit or maybe Maybe Maduro spent a lot of time on his knees,, begging I'd assume, but China is mow taking a more positive view of Venezuela.

Xi better be quick with the money,, inflation rate estimated at 1,000,000 percent in 2019,,, WoW, Venezuela might surpass Zimbabwe and take the crown for the most inflation. ? What is the most inflation ever recorded?

Venezuelan Opposition Politician Dead After Three Days in Police Custody.

Venezuelan officials claim Albán threw himself from the tenth floor of Secret Police (Sebin) headquarters, a claim opposition leaders aggressively rejected.


Well, gosh, there's no sense in crying over spilt milk.

THE GUY WAS OBVIOUSLY GUILTY. Really what other reason would cause him to throw himself out a 10th floor window. He'd been alive today if they'd kept him in the basement.

Venezuelan President Maduro - "strong man and dictator"

Says: Trump has put out a hit on me,, or something to that effect. In the past, Maduro has accused others, who will remain unnamed, of the same thing.

My advice; Trump isn't one to thoughtlessly "hurl threats" against people (unlike previous U.S. presidents.) and should Madura be correct, it's time for him to step down or at least stay hidden.

In a televised broadcast alongside members of his United communist Party of Venezuela (PSUV), Maduro claimed that the Trump administration has asked Colombian President Ivan Duque to help organize his assassination.

What's to organize? Let's get 'r done.

Just got a twitter note from Trish Regan:
Trish Regan Primetime has learned EXCLUSIVELY that Venezuela and its current regime are on the brink of COLLAPSE! We’re talking DAYS! The American man that Venezuela owes the most money to says Communism is to blame. You hear that,

Today is 12/15/2018 so days would be before 1/01/2019. Guess we'll find out soon enough.

Russia sent two bombers halfway around the world to Venezuela for what purpose? Transporting medical supplies?

Two Russian bombers landed in Venezuela on Monday provoking a strong rebuke from U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who tweeted, “Russia’s government has sent bombers halfway around the world to Venezuela. The Russian and Venezuelan people should see this for what it is: two corrupt governments squandering public funds and squelching liberty and freedom while their people suffer.”

Puting replied: What choice do I have, squander the money or give it to the Cliton Foundation.

I don't think the Venezuelans will be showing up on our southern border ........ not as long a Trump is POTUS.


The government has no rights. Only the PEOPLE have rights that empower the government.

This country, with its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it. Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing government, they can exercise their constitutional right of amending it, or exercise their revolutionary right to overthrow it.

Life is not the way it's supposed to be. It is they way it is. The way we cope with it, is what makes the difference.

Guyana (remember Jonestown) was a peaceful place until the President of Venezuela found out Exxon was exploring parts of Guyana territory for oil,, and yes there is LOTS of oil and Venezuela wants it.

This has prompted the Venezuelan President Maduro to invade (strong word) their neighbor Guyana, a relative poor nation w/o much of anything in the way of national defense.

The incident, which Guyanese authorities angrily denounced and vowed to bring to the attention of the United Nations, reignites a feud Venezuelan communist 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.

Claim 2/3 of another nations land? That doesn't seem right. What now, to heck with maps there are no borders?

If only Guyana had a border wall, at least the world would truly understand what part the Guyana's claimed as their country.

Trish Reagan wasn't far off (30 days) when the Maduro Socialist regime started to collapse in spectacular fashion.

100's of thousands in the streets, looks like the yellow vest riots in Spain, except they can afford yellow vests.

The anti-Madure legislature has elected a NEW PRESIDENT, which was news to the OLD PRESIDENT (Maduro) who has backing from the Military.

Maduro immediately TOLD the U.S. to get out of Venezuela in 72 hours. Report is that the U.S. was asked to stay by the newly elected president and isn't listening to Maduros request because he's illegitimate. (Me, i'd get out on general principals if I was a civilian.)

Hope this is over quickly, but since Maduro's highest paying private job was being a bus driver, it's hard to say.

The "new" president hasn't been killed or imprisoned yet so things are looking good for a coup.

Everyone's got something to lose, Russia, Iran, Cuba, U.S. Not sure how man have their fingers in the Venezuelan pie.

Venezuela's Illegitimate president Nicholas Maduro is now up to his azz in problems, maybe not his azz, could be lower but within range of the angle of the dangle.

Venezuela: Air Force General Joins Growing Number of Soldiers Renouncing Maduro

A Venezuelan air force general became the latest high-ranking military member to renounce his support for socialist dictator Nicolás Maduro, declaring in a video this weekend that he recognized opposition leader Juan Guaidó as the country’s legitimate president.

https://www.breitbart.com/national-security/2019/02/04/venezuela-air-force-general-joins-growing-number-soldiers-renouncing-maduro/

This isn't to be taken lightly, especially if you're the GENERAL. This "preliminary coup" statements have NOT gone well for failed coups, jail or worse. He's the General of the Air Force so he's probably got clearance for a direct flight to the U.S. if needed.

Time for a change,,, getting close.

Almost there, change is coming. Word is lower level military and police have joined the "resistance", guess that's was you can call an unarmed rag/tag group of undernourished venezuelans.

Venezuela crisis: Aid lorries stuck in Colombia border city

The first lorries with US humanitarian aid for Venezuela have arrived in the Colombian border city of Cúcuta.

The vehicles are currently parked near the Tienditas bridge, which remains blocked by Venezuelan troops.

President Nicolás Maduro, who has the support of the army, has rejected letting it into the country.

Opposition leader Juan Guaidó, who has declared himself interim president, has warned many Venezuelans are in danger of dying without international aid.


Getting closer to getting rid of the current president, Nicholas, dickweed, Maduro (Bus driver extraordinaire) and long time supporter of the now dead Chavez.

Maduro losing support of the army and I'd hope there would be a "break" in the military blockade and the relief trucks of medical and food supplies are allowed to enter the bridge at Cucata.

Highway from Colombia to Venezuela blockade.

Looks like it's a Democratic Move By Maduro, there is NOT a crisis, take your stuff, we've got it handled. Planted seed crops last month. No starvation here, plenty of grass to go around.

Maybe that's right, the picture shows plenty of trees to gnaw on.

SOCIALISM, the land of plenty for the few, the land of starvation for the many.

February 11, 2019. Tomorrow has a good chance of ending the Maduro regime and the "new guy" Juan Guaido becomes the new fearless leader of Venezuela.

Millions scheduled to go into the street TOMORROW in protest of,,, ?? starving ?? living under a dictator?? No medicine?? no job?? 5 million percent inflation?

The "new guy" was threatening Maduro with violation of international humanitarian rights. IE: Blocking food and medicine from crossing the Colombian border into Venezuela. Looks like it might have done some good:
CARACAS (Reuters) - Venezuela’s opposition leader, Juan Guaido, said on Monday his team had delivered a first cargo of the humanitarian aid that has become a flashpoint in his tussle with President Nicolas Maduro, without specifying how it had received it.
https://www.reuters.com/article/us-venezuela-politics-aid/venezuela-opposition-delivers-first-cargo-of-humanitarian-aid-guaido-idUSKCN1Q02IN

Guaido is also talking about the MILITARY who supports MADURO can be charged with human rights violations. Punished by who? the United Nations,, ha,,

Tomorrow, put it on your calendar. Millions in Venezuela, and what?? if it was the U.S. hundreds ? thousands ? none ?

Tomorrow has come and gone and Maduro, the President of Venezuela is still in power, with support from the military.

This can go on for a while since Venezuela's problems were caused by the United States in general and TRUMP specifically.

The internal problems created by the OUTSIDERS is getting worse and the only way to quell this international conspiracy to unseat Maduro is to form Death Squads to eliminate the (UNARMED) rebel raisers.

Photos emerge showing Venezuela's 'Death Squad' with lifeless bodies, victims described as anti-government protesters

Believe the DEATH SQUAD hasn't been effective in actually killing many people. There are "hoods" in Chicago with higher death counts,, but,, the killers in Venezuela are working for the government.

Tip of the Day, DIY Death Squad Equipment, (voter suppression)
“They break into your room and drag you from your house,” the newspaper reported in late January. “If you resist, they murder you in your own living room. They don’t care that your family’s right there watching, they don’t care that the neighbors can hear when they beat you senseless with steel tubes filled with cement.
