TGP EXCLUSIVE… Socialist Regime Teeters on Edge — Chavez Statue TORCHED – Goes Up in Smoke! (VIDEO) — RIOTS IN THE STREET

I'm curious as to how they managed to torch a statue. (The article doesn't say.) But reports are of rioting and sporadic power outages in the capitol of Caracas. A day or two ago, I read that there was an uprising by some national guard soldiers that was put down.

I'm guessing Nicolas Maduro is going to be driving a bus somewhere in Brazil by this time next year.

First a serious question for you, why is American MSM ignoring these "riots" when they absolutely love to put down socialist values anywhere in the world?
As for the video, well it was a big riot, 4 or5 youths setting fire to a statue.
Maduro has their supreme court AND the military behind him and he aint going anywhere.
Now really look at the alt media and one sneaky bit of info will answer your question. The bit that says America is backing Maduros opposition. In other words, why the American MSM is not reporting it is because it would highlight that America is again meddling in another countries political standing. America WANTS to bring the socialist government down.

Things were going good for V and getting better and now an invasion is being discussed, sounds like Iraq.
Wonder if the CIA had a hand in torching the statue?




A similar hike in domestic fuel prices by former president Carlos Perez in 1989 ignited mass riots and brutal repression in the capital city in an incident known as the Caracazo, or “Caracas smash”.

It was followed by an attempted coup.

In reality, millions of Venezuelans have seen their living conditions vastly improved through the Bolivarian process. The problems plaguing the Venezuelan economy are not due to some inherent fault in socialism, but to artificially low oil prices and sabotage by forces hostile to the revolution.

Starting in 2014, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia flooded the market with cheap oil. This is not a mere business decision, but a calculated move coordinated with U.S. and Israeli foreign policy goals. Despite not just losing money, but even falling deep into debt, the Saudi monarchy continues to expand its oil production apparatus. The result has been driving the price of oil down from $110 per barrel, to $28 in the early months of this year. The goal is to weaken these opponents of Wall Street, London, and Tel Aviv, whose economies are centered around oil and natural gas exports.

Chavez took office on a platform advocating a path between capitalism and socialism. He restructured the government-owned oil company so that the profits would go into the Venezuelan state, not the pockets of Wall Street corporations.

Yep. Saw it on Canada’s news last night.
Pence was very clear on backing the opposition.
Venezuela’s Vice President telling Pence, “yankee, go home”.
They’re not liking the US at the moment......

Yep, there's the expected pro-socialist apologist article.

Chavez basically allowed Venezuela's oil industry to fall into ruin. The foreign investors were chased away, no money was spent to maintain the oil infrastructure, and the results were exactly what you would expect: oil production ground to a near-halt. The fall in oil prices certainly hasn't helped, but Russia has managed to cope with the same low oil prices just fine.

We're also seeing the cronyism and nepotism that typically plaques Latin American regimes. The well-connected people get what they need, while others are literally starving. We saw the same thing in Puerto Rico after the hurricane hit. If you were in Carmen Yulin Cruz's good graces, you got aid. If you weren't, you were pretty much abandoned to your own devices.

I get it! The new reason Socialism never works is ... 'murika.

Now I know why so many of you hate this country. We stand in the way because we breathe.

America wants the oil in Venezuela they pretend to care about the People. Look at Yemen, rather then attacking and demanding the Saudis to stop the massacre and starvation. They blame it upon on Iran.

And what gives America the right to meddle in someone's else country again? America meddled in Libya and Iraq both are in bad shape.

Things not going too well in the USA might be the main reason the msm isn't focused on Venezuela.

I recall reading a couple of years back how the moneyed class in Venezuela intended to bring down the government by stopping their commerce, hi-tailing it back to Spain and watching the country fall apart...allowing for the reinstatement of a banana republic more amenable to their and America's interests.

Seems to be unfolding as planned.

yea, USA claimed dominion over all of Latin America years ago, and with it, came the right to do whatever desired.

For sure by design...next will be sending in the mafia to do a regime change and assassination, like was planned with Castro in Cuba...

Unless can pull it off, like was done with Zelaya in Honduras..
might have to result to ordering bombs if cannot get the USA way.
Invasion on the table it seems...if covert does not do the trick go overt.

Venezuela is not Libya, nor Syria the will have a hard time pulling an regime change, no doubt they have being planning this and even as far bribing a few gov officials to make sure they defect.
