Nicolas Maduro
May 2017

“we carry red hearts that are filled with desire to fight for human dignity.”

The crisis hits home in America

“do we keep this space or do we adopt a heroic posture and get shut down…”

It’s tyranny during the collapse of socialism, plain and simple

Missing man

End game?

“The government thinks its survival is in communism, not in us, not with production. And that’s where they’re wrong.”

“…now we see that revolution is not what was proposed to us back then.”

“…ask U.S. intelligence to report on the involvement of Venezuelan government officials in corruption”

Apr 2017

“Now, those who remain ‘chavistas’ are just the radicals.”

Departing the international organization which supports them

“Politics should not lead us to war.”

Stalling for time but it’s running out

Should have seen that one coming

But no guns for the citizens

Bowing to international pressure… for now

Mar 2017

“It constitutes a rupture of the constitutional order.”

“This ruling marks a point of no return for this dictatorship.”

“It’s unbelievable that this is happening in an oil producing country.”

Not a solution, but at least a start

Forget about Alice B. Toklas.

“Try to preserve food waste so that people who eat out of garbage cans can praise the Lord.”

Feb 2017

“There’s a terror campaign here.”

Watch closely. This is how socialism always ends

John Sexton Feb 13, 2017 9:01 PM

“El Aissami facilitated shipments of narcotics from Venezuela…”

Jan 2017

Socialism works! Venezuela a nation of millionaires

John Sexton Jan 18, 2017 9:01 PM

“There’s going to come a time when they’re going to run out of space on the bill for all those zeros.”

“They know they’ve lost popular support, that they don’t have the people on their side.”

Circling the drain

Dec 2016

“It’s a disaster.”

It couldn’t be your worthless money and starving citizens. Of course not.

Plus: Grinch or Robin Hood?

“…worse than the Grinch.”

“the women come here with little kids and after cutting their hair they go buy food.”

“A brick-sized package of 1,000 of the smallest bill, a two-bolivar note, buys a loaf of sandwich bread.”

Nov 2016

Meanwhile in Venezuela, a new diaspora begins

Seeking food and freedom

“The Venezuelan state has paralyzed the national industry…”

Beware the revolution.

Not the sort of “stability” we need
