Mike Pence Beats the War Drums on Venezuela

Published

on

In a move largely viewed as Cold War era saber rattling, Vice President Mike Pence has declared that the recent deployment of Russian troops in Venezuela was “an unwelcome provocation.” Pence even went so far as to demand that Russia cut off all talks with Maduro.

According to Bloomberg, Pence made this proclamation prior to President Donald Trump’s talk with Fabiana Rosales, Venezuelan Interim President Juan Guaido’s wife.

Reuters revealed that Trump said “Russia has to get out” of Venezuela in reference to the superpower’s involvement in the country.

Trump even stated that “all options are open” in putting a halt to Russian involvement in Venezuela.

On Saturday, Russian military aircraft landed outside of Caracas with about 100 Russian military personnel. According to the U.S. government, this deployment was made up of special forces and cybersecurity personnel.

According to the Associated Press, Russia has confirmed the landing of military forces.

Russian foreign ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said that the Russian troops deployed in Venezuela were sent “in strict accordance” with to the Venezuelan constitution and the military agreement in place between the two countries.

Venezuela’s recent economic collapse has made it turn to the Russia-China axis of power just to say afloat.

Such an alliance has been met with fierce criticism from the Trump administration.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo described Russia’s latest military deployment in Venezuela as “unconstructive”.

As tensions mount in Venezuela, the U.S. will likely pursue more sanctions on the socialist country.

Campaign 2020

Employees at the University of Pennsylvania are overwhelmingly in the tank for the Democrat Party.

Ophelia Jacobson of Campus Reform reported that University of Pennsylvania employees contributed to Democrat candidates, campaigns, and organizations between 2019 and 2020. Campus Reform was able to gather the data by turning to the Federal Election Commission.

Per the Campus Reform analysis, a whopping 97.6 percent of campaign contributions in 2019 and 2020 made by Penn instructors, staff, and administrators were sent to “Democratic organizations, candidates, and their campaigns.” Some of these groups and causes included ActBlue, Win the Era PAC, Biden for President, and MoveOn Political Action.

The remaining 2.4 percent of contributions went to Republican causes. These included WinRed, Donald J. Trump for President, and the Republican National Committee.

To get more specific, of the 715 donations that Penn faculty members made, just 11 were sent to Republican candidates, institutions or campaigns. This number represented 1.5 percent of campaign contributions pitched in by faculty members. The remaining 98.4 percent of donations were sent to Democrat causes.

Staff contributions showed similar trends. 97.6 percent of contributions were sent to Democrat campaigns, candidates, or organizations, whereas 2.4 percent were sent to Republicans.

Penn administrators donated 731 times during the time-frame of 2019 and 2020. Curiously, 21 of those 731 contributions (2.8 percent) were only made to Republican causes and the remainder (97.1 percent) were sent to Democrat causes.

This analysis reported that ActBlue was the principal organization that Penn workers donated to as far as Democrats institutions were concerned. In contrast, WinRed was the largest recipient of donations of all the Republican organizations.

Just another case of an American institution of higher learning being filled with leftist staff across the board. Let’s face it, universities are a magnet for the Left and work to perpetuate such a political paradigm.

Conservatives should take note. These institutions and the drones who work for them are the enemy. In light of this, the Right should aim to defund public universities and make sure to attend alternative educational institutions if possible. These institutions do not deserve a single penny from right wingers.
