In Venezuela, We Could NOT Stop Chávez. Don’t Make the Same Mistakes We Did

  • How to let a populist beat you, over and over again.

Andrés Miguel Rondón | The Washington Post

Andrés Miguel Rondón is an economist living in Madrid. He is a Venezuelan citizen who was born and raised there.

Donald Trump is an avowed capitalist; Hugo Chávez was a socialist with communist dreams. One builds skyscrapers, the other expropriated them. But politics is only one-half policy:

The other, darker half is rhetoric. Sometimes the rhetoric takes over. Such has been our lot in Venezuela for the past two decades — and such is yours now, Americans. Because in one regard, Trump and Chávez are identical. They are both masters of populism.          Continue reading

You People Made Me Give Up My Peanut Farm Before I Got To Be President – by Jimmy Carter

Former President Jimmy Carter

COMMENTARY by Jimmy Carter – 39th President Of The United States | The Onion

For generations, U.S. presidents have gone to great lengths to avoid potential conflicts of interest. When I was elected, I followed suit by placing my small business in a blind trust to assure our citizens that I would always put the country’s interests ahead of my own. It’s a vital presidential tradition. That’s why I find it a bit curious that our new commander-in-chief has been allowed to ignore it.

For Heaven’s sake, you people made me get rid of my peanut farm before you let me be president.     Continue reading

U.S: Pollution has been killing historically powerless Americans for decades – By Mohamed Hamaludin


The existential threat which global warming poses to the human race seems finally to be gaining the attention it deserves but not so another aspect of the environmental crisis: powerless Americans dying from lethal pollution of the water, air and land. Governmental authorities are directly to blame.

Lead pollution of the drinking water of residents of Flint, Michigan, started in 2014 when state-appointed officials switched the water supply to the Flint River and exposed between 6,000 and 12,000 children to serious health problems. At least 2,500 water lines remain polluted five years later.        Continue reading
