Donald Trump took center stage yesterday when he denounced Venezuelan socialism in front of a crowd of Venezuelan-Americans at Florida International University.
Trump called out Venezuelan strongman Nicolás Maduro for his socialist regime’s heavy-handed policies and his decision to block humanitarian aid to Venezuela.
Trump also gave Venezuela’s interim President Juan Guaidó a strong endorsement and implored the Venezuelan people to stand behind him.
It’s refreshing to see an American President make a strong moral case for capitalism and denounce the present-day posterchild of socialist failure.
However, it seems that the hawks in the Trump administration may be starting to gain more clout.
In the same speech, Trump stated that “We seek a peaceful transition of power, but all options are open.”
This isn’t the first time Trump has hinted at a potential military incursion in Venezuela. In 2017, Trump did not rule out a military option in Venezuela when talking to reporters in a New Jersey golf club.
Now, it seems that Trump is still flirting with interventionism.
National security advisor John Bolton, who has never seen a foreign escapade that he didn’t like, has been leading the charge against the so-called “Troika of Tyranny” in Latin America, made up of countries such as Cuba, Nicaragua, and Venezuela.
Not too long ago, Bolton was reported holding a notepad that detailed a rough plan to send 5,000 troops to Colombia. Naturally, this has re-kindled speculation of an intervention in Venezuela.
Indeed, countries like Venezuela are some of Latin America’s most notable political backwaters.
However, these countries are not a direct military threat to the U.S.
Bolton’s hawkish posturing is misguided at best, as any type of potential intervention could create an unprecedented refugee crisis in the region.
If the Boltons of the world want to reduce potential threats from the “Troika of Tyranny” they should stick to the principles that got Donald Trump elected in the first place. That means securing the border with a wall and drastically overhauling America’s immigration system.
Intervening will only create more refugees, which the political Left will take advantage of and guilt American lawmakers into accepting them within our borders.
Yes, Venezuela’s socialist regime should be condemned and ridiculed for its absurd economic policies. But it is ultimately a sovereign nation that willingly embraced socialism.
National sovereignty comes with the right to fail, so Venezuela should be allowed to fail on its own merits.
For those who want to see a better tomorrow for Venezuela, they should make their own private contributions and launch private awareness campaigns.
That being said, the U.S. government should completely stay out. The U.S. has already been involved in far too many nation-building schemes like Afghanistan and Iraq.
Fiscal chickens will come home to roost should the U.S. embark on another foreign adventure.
University Student Who Dared Question the LGBT Agenda is Now Facing the Threat of Losing his Scholarship
Defy the LGBT agenda at your own peril.
A Villanova University student claims that her academic advisor is attempting to intimidate her for tweets that criticized the university’s promotion of Pride Month.
Melanie Didioti, a graduate student at Villanova University, criticized the school’s athletic department for its Pride Month tweet on June 22, 2020. The tweet stated, “Love is Love. Happy #PrideMonth – We are proud to be an ally of the LGBTQ+ Community.”
Didioti responded with a tweet: “Villanova is proud to be an ally of the LGBTQ community and ashamed to be Catholic so I’m ashamed to attend here and that’s that.”
She claimed that this tweet resulted in her having a tense meeting with her academic advisor in the theology department, Professor Jennifer Jackson, on June 26.
Initially, Jackson claimed that the meeting was only about the fall 2020 schedule, per emails that The College Fix was able to require.
Instead, Didioti asserted that Jackson took advantage of the meeting to blast her tweets.
Didioti concluded that this interaction was the final “nail in the coffin,” and she now has plans to transfer to the Franciscan University of Steubenville, which is more conservative.
Universities in America have become leftist think tanks that do not promote free speech, nor allow people to hold provocative views.
Most conservatives are probably better off skipping class and learning trades.
