@JeremyCorbyn is a regressive. He wants to drag the country backwards to disaster.

This thread will examine his positions and explain how this will happen, using his espousal of causes as illustrations.

@UKLabour have the infants in charge. It’s too late to change now.
First up is the IRA and Sin Fein connection.
@JeremyCorbyn is said by cultists to have been responsible for peace. Nothing further from the truth.
In fact he will not touch moderates or Unionists, never met them. He was a parliamentary mouthpiece for the IRA during bombing. 2/
Next: Assad’s #Syria.
You know, those people who bomb children and gas them. The ones who killed 4,000 plus Palestinians this year alone.
Corbyn only loves the dead Palestinians who are useful against Israel. He won’t support the poor people of Syria cos his pal in charge. 3/19

1/ Meet Mr. Pedro, 85 years of age, patient with severe lack of malnutrition and lack of medical support in #Venezuela,
2/ This family (father and son) #Maracay need help in requiring food and medical support! They say the hospital cannot take care of us because they have no Medicine to treat our wounds. Video Credit: @cristiancrespoj

The Trump Administration is blocking assets in the United States controlled by Venezuela’s state-owned oil company, disconnecting @NicolasMaduro and his cronies from their needed revenue sources and protecting crucial assets for the future of #Venezuela.…
Note: More than three million people have fled Venezuela since 2015 and the United Nations estimates that number may swell to more than 5.3 million by the end of 2019. As of December 2018, there were more than 280 known political prisoners in Venezuela.
Venezuelans have suffered from violence at the hands of the security services, including extrajudicial killings and arbitrary arrests. Mismanagement by Maduro led to hyperinflation exceeding one million percent in 2018, worsening already dire economic circumstances.

About 5 million Venezuelans face malnutrition and death by lack of medicine, insulin etc. Yet, #Venezuela has billions locked up in the British and US treasuries — money that's been seized by the US and UK governments.
#Venezuela #Guaido #Maduro #Chavez
All proceeds of sales of oil to the #KochBros. have been given to #Venezuela's main creditor, Goldman Sachs, the rest embargoed.

See my full interview with @Thom_Hartmann here:

The US shipment of 3 week’s food for 5,000 is a publicity stunt, which reminds me of the Nazis who allowed some visits and food shipments to concentration camps. That did not save my family. #Venezuela

I'm about to tweet an explainer of the Haiti Protests to head off all the superficial reporting from American news outlets #kotkobpetrocaribea #AyitiNouVleA #PetroCaribeChallenge
#PetroCaribe is a petroleum program between Venezuela and a number of countries in the Caribbean and Latin America. Venezuela sold petroleum to these nations at a preferential rate, paying only 5-50% of the cost upfront.
#Venezuela sold petroleum to these nations at a preferential rate, paying only 5-50% of the cost upfront. The remainder of the cost is considered a loan to be paid back over a 25 year period at a low 1% interest rate.

What’s going on in #Venezuela is a coup d’état engineered by Trump. Of course he’s not much of an engineer, the actual driver of that train is John Bolton, Trump’s neocon National Security Advisor.…
The entire economy of #Venezuela is based on selling oil to the U.S., with some sales to China and Russia. Now the U.S. is withholding all the money that’s owed for that oil. Plus there’s an embargo. It’s an act of war.
In fact Alfred de Zayas, a former U.N. rapporteur (and the first one to visit the country in 21 years), said the "economic sanctions and blockades are comparable with medieval sieges of towns.”…

Lo de @Aran_Tirado es ignorancia supina, ceguera ideológica, un asesoramiento pésimo, pura y simple manipulación torticera o todo junto. Yo, español también, estoy en #Caracas (otra vez) y las simplezas alucinantes de sus vídeos son para echarse las manos a la cabeza.
(Hilo va).
A mí, como europeo con vínculos emocionales y de amistad con #Venezuela que ve a diario el malestar de sus ciudadanos cuando viene (con la responsabilidad clara) y estando bien informado desde España, se me llevan los demonios por la increíble deshonestidad de esta compatriota.
Se pasea por #Caracas ironizando con una displicencia insufrible sobre la dictadura chavista, como si las dictaduras fuesen siempre como el gueto de Varsovia en la II Guerra Mundial. Haría lo mismo en "el plácido" Madrid de los 60 y diría que dónde está la dictadura de Franco. 🤪

Me llamó la atención encontrarme con un artículo de opinión de un @Greg_Palast y repetido por gente como @RaniaKhalek @codepink @DrJillStein @BootsRiley y otra gente “conocedora” de Venezuela en EEUU intentando convertir el movimiento venezolano en una especie de lucha racial
El artículo intenta “probar” que lo que está sucediendo en Venezuela es una venganza de la élite blanca venezolana contra los “negros venezolanos a quien Chávez habría empoderado”. La acusación va especialmente contra los Venezolanos que vivimos en el exterior...
...pues supuestamente quienes son bilingües, viven en el extranjero, tienen una piel no lo suficientemente oscura o son opositores al régimen de Maduro no corresponden a cualquiera que sea su idea de un venezolano.

This is the @USAID aid stuck at the border of #Colombia and #Venezuela - the US says the aid will provide emergency food at medicine for the ppl of Venezuela. Today, it sits inside a warehouse.
Colombian police help to lay out all the food that will be put into food kids. The food kits are enough for over 5,000 Venezuelans for 10 days #Venezuela
This is Lester Toledo. He represents @jguaido - standing in front of the aid- he urged #Venezuela’s military to turn against @NicolasMaduro and allow the aid to come into the country to help not just everyone but the military and their families too

Let’s talk about the important remarks made recently by U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, saying how (#Iran-backed) Hezbollah has an active role in #Venezuela, as part of a “cocaine corridor.”
“How Hezbollah turned to trafficking cocaine & laundering money through used cars to finance its expansion.”

And all with Obama turning his back……
“They followed cocaine shipments, some from Latin America to West Africa & on to Europe & the Middle East, & others through Venezuela & Mexico to the United States.”

This is the story of #Venezuela in black & white, a story not told by the MSM. The so-called popular uprising is, at its heart, a furious backlash of the whiter (and wealthier) Venezuelans against their replacement by the larger Mestizo (mixed-race) poor.…
I can explain what’s going on in #Venezuela in 3 photos...

First, we have Juan Guaidó, self-proclaimed (and Trump-proclaimed) president of the nation, with his wife and child, a photo prominently placed in The New York Times.…
Next, the class photo of Guaidó’s party members in the National Assembly, white as snow……

Good morning from the #Colombia - #Venezuela border. Here on this footbridge 50,000 Venezuelans cross the bride everyday for things like food and medical supplies and can see them holding carts and empty suitcases to fill with whatever they buy....
The situation is so dire many of these Venezuelans - waiting in line here for breakfast - are sleeping in the streets of Colombia....some families are squatting in a nearby open football field, sleeping on the dirt at night. #Venezuela
The soup kitchen serves more than 3,000 meals for breakfast (which consists of a roll of bread and cup of milk) and feeds 5,000 Venezuelans for lunch. Families here say food is so scarce in #Venezuela they had no other choice but to leave

🇻🇪 CIA weapons shipment destined for #Venezuela|n rebels?
That's what the authorities are saying.
O/C that would be completely out of character... 🙄

While @CalibreObscura is pouring over the pictures of the guns, I'm way more interested in the plane!…
🇺🇸 American-registered N881YV (ICAO:AC23C6) is a Boeing 767 Cargo plane (no windows) operated by 21 Air, LLC. The company was registered in 2014 to fly cargo from Orlando to Miami with two planes.

Two? How do you run a cargo company with 2 planes?…
That's okay, don't be worried about their business; they're super busy, and do not just fly the Miami-Orlando cargo circuit as documented; they fly all over! They're into wet leasing. What's wet leasing?
