The socialist Venezuelan government-owned oil firm, Citgo, donated $500,000 to help cover the costs of President Donald Trump’s inauguration. It called Venezuela’s spending into question under Nicolas Maduro, Hugo Chavez’s protege, as people are starving and the country’s cash reserves are dwindling quickly.
Venezuela’s socialist government has whittled down the country’s cash reserves from $20 billion down to $10 billion this year, while it needs $6 billion to pay off its debt.

Read the first couple paragraphs of the front-page piece on their website yesterday: CUMANÁ, Venezuela — With delivery trucks under constant attack, the nation’s food is now transported under armed guard. Soldiers stand watch over bakeries. The police fire rubber bullets at desperate mobs storming grocery stores, pharmacies and butcher shops. A 4-year-old girl was […]
It’s quite an experience to attend a Bernie Sanders rally: Supporters of all ages waved peace signs, wore hipster clothing and donned colorful dreadlocks, creating a laid-back, flower-power sort of atmosphere that looked like a polaroid-perfect scene from the 60s. Photo by hillels
It’s all about consistency on the issues, really: Although the 2016 campaign may no longer “feel the Bern” after tomorrow’s primary, hundreds of supporters at the Sanders’ DC rally last Thursday feel that Bernie has something that the other two candidates lack — consistency. “The reason that we are still Sanders, the reason that we […]
