Ok so this provotwatsiya from @RandPaul is rather telling. Wanna know why? Bec the people of Venezuela have been robbed by a vast global corruption scheme aka #TransnationalOrganizedCrime-which connects to Rand’s Russian bosses. Let’s take a look at some of the fuckery, shall we?
It’s also amusing that @EdRogersDC retweeted it, given where his money comes from (HINT: Ed reps a whole bunch of other countries that steal from their people-like Azerbaijan!)
So Venezuela has a giant issue with their state-owned oil company, Petroleos de Venezuela SA, aka PDVSA.
It is alleged that $11bn has “gone missing” from PDVSA. reuters.com/article/us-ven…
The theft of STATE ASSETS (aka the Venezuelan people’s money) connects to vast Malaysian corruption scandal 1MDB, which features Goldman Sachs, Russian money laundering, UAE and Saudi money laundering, art, diamonds, yachts, Leo DiCaprio (seriously), etc. sarawakreport.org/2017/01/petros…
Venezuela isn’t really socialist. It’s a kleptocracy. The US has placed sanctions on Venezuela because of the state-sanctioned corruption and fake free elections. The Venezuelan people are suffering because their assets are being stolen by corrupt leaders.
Some real shitbirds have lobbied to get sanctions lifted. mic.com/articles/17293…
I *think* what Rand Paul is doing with this tweet is trying to distract from the corruption-which is the reason for the human suffering in Venezuela-by essentially red-baiting. He’s blaming socialism so he can horseshoe the human suffering-while distracting from the KLEPTOCRACY.
Another interesting piece is the PDVSA-Citgo-Rosneft relationship. Because Rosneft of course features in TrumpRussia. reuters.com/article/us-ven…
The US DoJ has been prosecuting corrupt participants in both PDVSA corruption and 1MDB corruption (and we know they are connected). The scope of the Kleptocracy is astounding. $11 BILLION missing from PDVSA. $4.5 BILLION missing from Malaysia’s 1MDB.
This is a story about the privileged few stealing from the many.
If you want more on 1MDB, and how it connects to 🚩TrumpRussia and the Global Corruption Scandal 🚩, look here: twitter.com/search?q=1MDB%…
And if you want more on PDVSA, and how it connects to 🚩TrumpRussia and the Global Corruption Scandal 🚩, look here: twitter.com/search?q=PDVSA…
Now does the US Government's Kleptocracy Initiative make sense?
It was launched in 2010.
And in 2011, @BarackObama declared Transnational Organized Crime a National Emergency.
PS hey @EdRogersDC no wonder you are retweeting @RandPaul's Venezuela political provotwatsiya! You rep Azerbaijan.
