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.

A U.S. diplomat met three times with military officers in #Venezuela plotting a coup against Nicolas Maduro; he refused to give the officers even an indication of support, let alone the communications devices they needed to bring off their conspiracy. nyti.ms/2QfP2G2
Some saw #Venezuela's military as a means of stabilizing the situation, allowing practical things like aid deliveries. Others "saw considerable risk in building bridges with leaders of a military that...ha[ve] become a pillar of the cocaine trade and human rights abuses." #pt
There's nothing to complain about in the U.S. gathering intelligence by establishing communications with mutinous officers in #Venezuela. The question is whether Maduro is considered a threat: if he is, then do what's necessary to bring him down. If not, leave it for Venezuelans.

UN DOMINGO EN LA VENEZUELA DE 1900

Hace unos años descubrí esta #fotografía en shorpy.com. Desde entonces la he contemplado con lupa y sigo encontrando detalles que nos permiten asomarnos a la #Venezuela de hace más de un siglo.
Abro #hilo.
@Shorpy la había tomado de la Biblioteca del Congreso de Estados Unidos (@librarycongress) donde está archivada con el título “Country store, Venezuela” y la fecha aproximada de 1905.
No se menciona el nombre del fotógrafo, pero sabemos que la foto es parte de la colección de la Detroit Publishing Company, de más de 25 mil imágenes hechas en todo el continente en las últimas décadas del siglo XIX y las primeras del XX.

📌Bruce Ohr tried to indict Russia crime boss Mogilevich in 2006-07.

📌Mogilevich is vindictive that's why Trump is targeting McCabe.

In October 2017, President Trump posed with a group of high-ranking military officers and cryptically declared that it was “#TheCalmBeforeTheStorm.” Most journalists puzzled over the remark for a moment and moved on to whatever chaos came next.

C'è un lato ironico nel "paquetazo rojo" per il #Venezuela di Maduro: dopo aver distrutto un'economia -tra le più ricche al mondo per risorse- a colpi di deficit (oggi al 30% del PIL), cerca di fermare la spirale puntando al "pareggio di bilancio". Thread →
Non sarà facile (eufemismo): nel pacchetto, insieme all'introduzione del nuovo -e svalutato- Bolivar Sovrano, c'è un aumento di 34 volte dei salari (ed il 29% dei salariati in Venezuela è un dip. pubblico, in Italia il 16% e nel Vietnam comunista il 20%)

- @RRamirezVE is the #BOLIBURGUES-in-chief

- @PDVSA saw income in excess of $1.3 trillion since 2002
- Every Venezuelan banker / entrepreneur worth over $100 million since 1999 is, without a shred if a doubt, a #BOLIBURGUES

- Every multinational that has “won” procurement contracts over $50 million in #Venezuela since 1999 has paid a bribe somewhere.

We mock Owen Jones for silence now #Venezuela has ended as socialism always does, but having just read a Leftist argument that #China's internment of Muslims is invented by USG fronts like @HRW, the "corporate media", and "reactionary" oppositionists, OJ's looking quite good.
As a side note: I simply do not know where to start with the accusation that @HRW has an "excessively disproportionate focus on designated enemies of Washington". Whatever criticisms of HRW one might have, that one seems completely delusional.
Amazing what one can learn from Western Leftists who are back to defending #China. For example, there is a species of "imprisoned hard-right neoconservative Chinese dissident". Naturally, he is also a "hardcore libertarian" at the same time. And fully deserves to be in the GULAG.

📌Has NYS opened a criminal probe?🍿

The most damaging thing re Cohen did to Trump was that the DOJ (📌not Democrats) allowed Cohen to enter a guilty plea whose factual basis was that Trump had directed him in the commission of a crime.

Manafort had Kilimnik, who was a pawn of RU GRU as his alter ego.
