La esperanza
Siento que estamos en un momento cumbre, definitorio y que exigirá nuestro mayor compromiso, amor por el país y planificación de nuestro futuro como nación. Es tiempo de unir nuestra indignación, nuestro coraje, nuestra rebeldía y nuestra esperanza
Estamos peleando nuestro derecho a tener un mejor país, no es el momento de sucumbir ante la desesperación, pero ante esta necesidad de cambio tampoco podemos otorgar cheques en blanco, es tiempo de la verdad y del compromiso, ¡ES TIEMPO DE LA LIBERTAD!
Ahora mismo me siento con mucha esperanza, fuerza y valor, con ganas acumuladas de no permitir que la minoría corrupta, terrorista y narcotraficante que secuestra a #Venezuela me la siga arrebatando ¿ud se siente igual?

#Venezuela 🇻🇪: today #Maduro is being inaugurated for a second term following "elections" which were internationally condemned for being unfair.

Leaders of other authoritarian or leftist Latin-American states such as #Cuba, #Nicaragua and #Bolivia are present at the event
#Venezuela 🇻🇪: as #Maduro is being inaugurated pro-regime collectivos are touring the center of #Caracas, passing by the National Assembly in order to intimidate the opposition
#Venezuela 🇻🇪: #Maduro is becoming increasingly isolated as #Peru and #Paraguay have broken all diplomatic ties with his regime in protest of last year's "elections".

The #OAS has also voted not to recognize his presidency as it enters a second term.

#SaudiArabia just revised its oil reserves up to 266.1 Billion barrels. Assuming these reserves are proven & not just estimated and a price of $50 per barrel, the market value of oil that the Kingdom is sitting on could be near $13.3 TRILLION. Note that this excludes gas reserves
2-#Saudi oil is also the cheapest to produce (approx $5 compared to $60 in #Venezuela) but the "Social Cost" of Saudi oil is as high as $80-90 per barrel. Kingdom's budget needs such prices to be in balance. This explains why Riyadh is seeking dollars by raising new debt
3-Interestingly, #Saudi took down the initial release and now revised the oil reserves number up to 268.5 billion barrels from the initial release of 266.3 billion. These new estimates follow a new independent audit by an international consulting firm

I recently met with a desperate #Venezuela family about to overstay tourist visa. Dad (professional), mom (professional) and kid. Staying w/ relatives & desperate to find a way not to return to political threats, hunger, utter lack of services, including medical care...
Why me? I have #HumanRights background, a university job & #LatinAmerica experience. Basically bupkus in the terrordome politics of desperate people in Trumpland. But I bought them coffee (and a snowman cookie for a young 'un) and listened...
What separates me from them? Increasingly little. They were upper middle class and now scrounge for off the books manual labor. Would they be killed if they returned? Not immediately -- but slowly: no work, no food, no medicine, no hope. They've become #Refugees ...

Counting down The Top Ten Worst UN Moments of 2018.
10. Report of Alfred de Zayas, first UN rights expert to visit #Venezuela, portrayed the Maduro regime as a victim—the West being the perpetrator—and failed to mention the term “political prisoners” once.…
9. #Turkey’s Erdogan regime—which arrests, jails & persecutes human rights activists, journalists, and dissidents—was elected Vice-Chair of @UN Committee on Non-Governmental Organizations, which oversees the activity of human rights activists at the UN.…
8. The UN let #Cuba cheat on a mandatory review of its human rights record by submitting hundreds of fake NGO submissions hailing the repressive regime's human rights record—including submissions from the "Cuban Federation of Canine Sports" & the "Cuban Plastic Surgery Society."

Aquí les dejo algunos datos importantes sobre el Libertador:

#Bolivar #17Dic #libertad #Venezuela
Bolívar fue reconocido por la BBC como el héroe más importante del siglo XIX.
Con solo 47 años de edad peleó 472 batallas siendo derrotado sólo 6 veces, participó en 79 grandes batallas, con el gran riesgo de morir en 25 de ellas.

Caro ministro @luigidimaio dedico a lei e al #GovernoDelCambiamento queste mie riflessioni sulla #povertà.
Questa parola, magica come #dignità , tanto cara a lei e ai Vs. sostenitori.
Che avete deciso di propagandare attraverso lanci #social, balconate e che secondo
Voi con un #decreto - i cui effetti sul mercato del #lavoro saranno dirompenti ma in senso negativo - potevate eliminarla.
Mi spiace darle questa brutta notizia, ma né lei né nessun altro politico in questa terra, potrà abolire o eliminare la povertà.
Perché purtroppo la smania
protagonismo e l’ignoranza in materia economica vi porta a fare scelte irrazionali.
La povertà non è solo un problema economico, tutt’altro, è principalmente un problema culturale.
Un paese ignorante è un paese tendenzialmente povero - che poi fa comodo a chi lo governa - perché

Hilo: hace años @MoisesNaim me pregunto qué me motivaba, y le respondí que en #Venezuela hacía falta alguien como @simonwiesenthal, que persiguiera a los corruptos venezolanos por el mundo entero, para traerlos ante la justicia.
Le dije que mi sueño era ser el Wiesenthal criollo, pues creía q la #corrupción era lo q tenía al país sumido perennemente en el subdesarrollo y en el fracaso. Estimo q más de 500mil millones de dólares han sido indebidamente apropiados en #Venezuela
Ahora creo q hay q crear un task force, estilo el q lideraba Eliot Ness, y entromparse con la mafia chavista, boliburguesa y criminal q campea en #Venezuela. Los militares, los políticos, los partidos, los dizque asesores dialogantes, todos deben ser escrutados, como es debido.

Thread >> Expectedly, David Boies @bsfllp filed an objection to judge’s recommendations of throwing out the farcical @PDVSA Litigation Trust. The joke has got to be argument that no inquiry can be made into legality of trust under Vzlan law...
Boies @bsfllp wants court to take illegal actions of utterly corrupt Vzlan officials as valid, beyond questions, while countering that the laws to hold those same officials accountable don’t apply to their actions.
Boies @bsfllp logic to a US court:

Formation of @PDVSA Litigation Trust in #Venezuela by (jailed, missing) corrupt officials = legal

Venezuelan legislation that governs actions of said officials = “Venezuelan law is simply not a subject for adjudication in a court of the U.S.”

Last year, UN Human Rights Council "Special Rapporteur" Philip Alston investigated America's failed social justice system, and now he's examining Britain. Meanwhile, the only UNHRC Special Rapporteurs who've reported on Cuba & Venezuela, praised their social justice systems.
They may point to real problems, but it's clear these UNHRC experts seek to impose their own far-left economic policies by declaring that these are obligations of international human rights law. But in real life, millions have fled the countries that they hold up as models.
Here's how the system works:
1. Tyrannies go along in creating UN mandates to attack the West.
2. Social justice groups critical of the West feed their reports to the UN monitors & invite them to visit.
3. Tyrannies & social justice warriors both win; world's worst victims lose.

There Is Still So Much Evil’: Growing Anti-Semitism Stuns Americans

The violence that took place the Shabbat morning at the Tree of Life congregation in Pittsburgh is the fear of every synagogue, Hillel, day school & Jewish community center in this country. It is the ancient Jewish expectation of persecution—this IS Terrorism

When Rabbi Miller learned of the Squirrel Hill massacre, he ordered the doors of his synagogue locked.

Despite his congregants’ terror that they would be next, they recited the mi sheberach.

They prayed for the healing of others rather than themselves.

Hablar sobre el #suicidio es el primer paso para su #prevención.
A pesar de ser la primera causa de #muerte entre personas de 15 a 29 años, el #suicidio sigue siendo un tema tabú, a nivel mundial genera más muertes que la suma de los homicidios y las víctimas de guerra.
Es un problema de #salud pública frente al que las administraciones públicas podrían hacer mucho más de lo que hacen porque se hace bastante poco, por no decir que nada.

"We saw a young woman go into a store and ask the price of kids underwear and when the owner told her she said "I'll just go home and sew my torn ones". . . Salary isn't enough for clothes; if you buy, you don't eat." -Luis 28 & Luz, 20

This quote was a good laugh for all four pictured here, but when Luz described leaving her 4 y/o daughter behind, it turned to tears.

As I chronicle conversations with Venezuelan migrants in Colombia this month, remember that the subjects are more than a single picture and quote
”Sometimes people ask me if I accept dollars. OF COURSE I ACCEPT DOLLARS. It's the most valuable money in the world!" -Chester, 28 (travel companion of Steph, pictured)

#Khashoggi Case Thread: I am going to ‘pin’ this post to use it as an ‘Info Thread’ on the #Khashoggi Case. I am in #Turkey. I’ve been following the case closely and with access to sources & experts here. This is a very ‘sensitive’ criminal case due to ‘Diplomatic Booby Traps’!!!
The Evidence Obtained Outside Cameras will not show any evidence of ‘tempering’ but other than license plates of dozens of diplomatic cars (Many with tinted windows-large trunks) with related time stamp, drivers Info, model/year: Nothing.
#Turkish Intel-Investigative Bodies also have the list of all Diplomatic & Private Saudi & “other significant’ Planes in #Turkey for the period of ‘interest.’ Many of the Target airports have their own security cameras & related evidence.

Thread: to grasp the utter derangement that inhabits chavista heads, read tweet below from @RRamirezVE, where he claims he has a profession and earns an honest living as other Vzlans escaping chavista-made misery.

Mind, @RRamirezVE managed an income in excess of $1.2 TRILLION (not a typo), admitted to have passed $480 BILLION (not a typo) to Chavez and co for social programs... Where are the $700+ BILLION left?
As @PDVSA CEO and #Venezuela Energy Minister, @RRamirezVE, his two brothers, his wife, his mother in law, his brother in law, his operators were all involved in difficult-to-quantify #corruption, the kind that would put Russians, Brazilians and Nigerians to shame

1-There is a connection between the super cheap gasoline that's been sold in Venezuela for decades and the cocaine industry that's a major pillar of the economy of Colombia. And it seems that finally the government of Venezuela is at least trying to get a handle on it.>
2-Gasoline is a necessary ingredient in turning the Coca leaf into cocaine. Now this predates the rise of President Chavez. It's been a serious political problem for Venezuela's government both old regime and new. You see gasoline that's cheaper than water it's hard to keep it>
Inside one country. And so an estimated 1/3 of Venezuela's petroleum that's refined into gasoline has been getting smuggled into Colombia. Of course given that the gasoline is almost free in Venezuela it comes into Columbia pretty cheap. This is probably why Columbia can export

@jaarreaza in the @UN thread:

Asked about @TheJusticeDept indictment against @juliusbaer Krull #Convit etc, said “Venezuela’s Attorney General is fighting #corruption (lucha sin cuartel) wherever it may be...”
@tarekwiliamsaab is yet to comment on @PDVSA case involving @juliusbaer

His office @MinpublicoVE has not investigated, indicted, arrested Francisco #Convit, despite being in #Venezuela hiding from @TheJusticeDept
@jaarreaza hasn’t heard @TheJusticeDept case against @raulgorrinb Maduro & stepsons, in which $1.2 billion were stolen by #Convit & #Krull from @PDVSA

Referred to the case as “media campaign against @NicolasMaduro and his family”

#FuelPriceHike A chart that explains how petrol and diesel cost is calculated.
1. Central Excise is constant. Money Centre gets does not increase or decrease with cost of fuel.
2. State VAT & surcharge is % of cost. Higher the cost, higher the earnings of States.
Pls share.
State VAT & surcharges per litre of petrol and diesel is in % and varies from State to State. Congress-JDS raised it to 32% after forming Govt in Karnataka. Maharashtra has highest VAT on petrol. AP on diesel. Bulk of WB revenue comes from VAT on fuel.
States have limited means of raising resources. VAT on fuel and tax on booze are rich revenue earning sources. States that have prohibition have to depend on VAT on fuel. One of the reasons why prohibition is ill-conceived. Strangely prohibitionists protest loudest on fuel price.
