AMERICA FIRST: Matt Gaetz Calls for Non-Interventionist Approach in Venezuela

Published

on

Matt Gaetz takes a non-interventionist stance on Venezuela.

In a tweet Gaetz stated, “We must appreciate that the only sustainable freedom is freedom won by those who yearn to live it. Direct US military involvement risks allowing Maduro to externalize conflict, scapegoat his failures, and delegitimize the organic desire of Venezuelans to choose their own future.”

Interim President Juan Guaidó recently called on the Venezuelan military to stand up against Nicolás Maduro’s government, which has led to mayhem on the streets as the government cracked down on protestors.

In a previous post, BLP covered the Maduro government’s crackdown against civilian protestors.

Gaetz reaffirmed his support for the Venezuelan people, but ruled out military involvement in the country.

Venezuela, a country long hamstrung by socialist policies, has become a geopolitical battle zone for countries such as Russia, China, and the United States.

Although Venezuela has seen better days, the U.S. is tied up in numerous conflicts in the Middle East and is witnessing surging numbers of migrants crossing the border.

Fiscal realities and government priorities make it difficult for the U.S. to take decisive action.

America First advocates like Gaetz understand the importance of freedom, but believe that it should be fought for by the people of countries who are currently living under the shackles of authoritarian governments.

U.S. Law Enforcement Bust 27 People Connected to Mexican Sinaloa Cartel

Published

on

Over two dozen people were arrested on drug charges in connection to a Mexican cartel smuggling cocaine into the U.S. Following a two-year investigation, 27 people were arrested through Operation Tripwire, an investigation effort U.S. officials have been working on featuring members of the Sinaloa Cartel.

The trafficking network went from Los Angeles, California to Tucson, Arizona and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where cocaine originating from Mexico was smuggled stateside. The United States Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania, Scott Brady declared “this is a large organization that was trafficking hundreds of kilograms of cocaine throughout the country and has direct ties to the Sinaloa cartel in Mexico.”

U.S. authorities recounted that the investigations started after an agent in Pittsburgh was able to identify an address that received large quantities of suspicious-looking packages coming from California. Since then, agents started to do investigation on other members of the network across the U.S.

Across the span of seven months, authorities were able to intercept U.S. calls made by some of the alleged traffickers with Sinaloa carte leaders in Mexico. On September 9, 2020, 27 were arrested in Arizona, California, and Pennsylvania.

According to American authorities, $1.3 million in cash and over 140 kilograms of cocaine were seized. The aforementioned people arrested are now facing a prison sentence of between 10 years and life in prison.

The border situation is no joke. Prior administrations have largely neglected the issue and have allowed for unprecedented levels of illegal immigration and drug trafficking to cross the U.S. border.

In a prior instance, BLP reported on how Mexico is a failed state that cannot maintain public order and is largely being pushed around by cartels. Due to its proximity to the U.S., Mexico’s problems will likely spillover stateside.

This is why border security is crucial. Thankfully, the U.S. has a president in Donald Trump that gets the memo. He’ll still need help from Congress, however,

That’s why it’s crucial that America First Republicans have strong showings at all branches of government in 2020.
