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.
Mexican Government Reported that Nearly 80,000 People are Still Missing
Mexico Spirals Out of Control While Joe Biden Promises Mass Amnesty
According to a report released by the Mexican government on November 25, 2020, over 79,500 people are still missing in Mexico.
This comes in the backdrop of Mexico’s infamous military offensive against drug cartels in 2006. Since the erstwhile president Felipe’s military offensive against drug cartels, the number of missing people in Mexico has skyrocketed.
Before 2006, there were 1,500 disappearances in Mexico, per statistics that Deputy Human Rights Minister Alejandro Encina put forward. Since July, there have been roughly 6,300 new cases reported.
Encina observed, however, that the number of disappearances have dropped since 2019.
Mexico is notorious for its alarming levels of violence, which is largely perpetuated by organized crime. In 2019, 34,582 people were murdered. So far in 2020, 26,431 people have been murdered from January to September.
Encinas claimed that Mexican authorities have discovered 1,399 mass graves in Mexico over the past two years. Of the 2,290 bodies discovered in the graves, 879 have been identified.
Mexico is not in good shape and that’s putting it lightly. America at least recognized this with Donald Trump in office. Trump was elected on an America First platform which stressed tough policies on the border and was not willing tolerate mass immigration like his predecessors.
Sadly, the apparent president-Joe Biden is more concerned with trying to pass mass amnesty for 11 million illegal aliens and freezing deportations for 100 days.
Securing our Southern border is a recognition of the cold, hard truth that Mexico is falling apart, and it’s institutional and social rot could potentially make its way up north. Much to America’s chagrin, the next occupant of the White House will likely not recognize that. Should fraud allegations fail to invalidate the current results of the 2020 elections, America First patriots must act accordingly and make immigration a massive issue during the 2022 midterms, both in the primaries and general election.
