Thomas Massie Proposes Constitutional Solution to the Venezuela Crisis

Published

on

On May 1, 2019, Thomas Massie issued a proclamation on Twitter declaring that any military action in Venezuela must be conducted in a constitutional manner.

Ever since Venezuelan president Interim President Juan Guaidó’s attempted uprising on April 30th, 2019, there has been significant chatter about a potential military intervention in the country.

In an interview with Fox Business, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo did not rule out a military option to deal with the Venezuelan crisis.

Liberty-minded Representative Thomas Massie commented on the Venezuelan crisis. The Kentucky Congressman stated:

The violence in Venezuela is appalling. I hope both sides can resolve their differences peacefully. However, if the American people support engaging in military action in the region, then the Constitution requires proper congressional approval first.

Massie added:

That is why I’m an original cosponsor (the only Republican) of H.R. 1004, a bill that would require congressional authorization for any military action in Venezuela. You can read H.R. 1004 here: https://www.congress.gov/bill/116th-congress/house-bill/1004?q={%22search%22:[%22H.R.+1004%22]}&r=2&s=1

On the other hand, America First Congressman Matt Gaetz took a firm non-interventionist stance on April 29th. BLP covered Gaetz’s more restrained approach to this matter.

Gaetz recognizes the failure of socialism in Venezuela, but believes that it is not in the U.S.’s best interest to intervene in the country.

The next few months will be filled with intense debate on what to do in the crisis-ridden country.

Jon Ossoff’s Endorsement by Giffords Proves He is an Anti-Gun Stooge

Georgia Voters Who Care About the Second Amendment Should Reject Both Democrat Candidates

Now that former Vice President Joe Biden is the presumptive president-elect, conservatives are busy re-grouping.

Although the presidential election appears to be sorted out, electors still have to cast their ballots on December 14. On top of that, there’s still unsettled business in Georgia.

While a 50-50 split by no means guarantees that gun control will be passed at will, this puts Democrats one step closer towards implementing their anti-gun fantasies.

The case for Perdue is pretty simple. He’s a solid immigration patriot and a staunch Second Amendment supporter. He can be counted on to keep the Left in check.

Ossoff is currently endorsed by Giffords, one of the fastest growing civilian disarmament lobbies in America. This organization was founded by former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords and has been increasingly active in promoting anti-Second Amendment politicians over the last few years.

Giffords’ endorsement of Ossoff makes sense. According to Ossoff’s platform, he plans on prohibiting the sales of semiautomatic rifles and “high capacity” magazines. Not to mention, he wants to check off every other item on the gun grabber checkbox by supporting red flag confiscation orders, universal background checks, tighten the so-called “gun show loophole”, and implement licensing for semiautomatic rifles and handguns that millions of Americans already own.

Ossoff’s anti-gun endorsement list is quite diverse. AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News called attention to the fact that “Ossoff is also endorsed by the Mike Bloomberg-founded gun control group, Everytown for Gun Safety. He is also endorsed by Everytown’s subsidiary gun control group, Moms Demand Action.”

When Gabby Giffords’ organization gave Ossoff their endorsement, they were very explicit about the intention behind endorsing Ossoff, revealing that they are “working to unseat an NRA-backed incumbent.”

An Ossoff victory, along with Raphael Warnock winning his race against Kelly Loeffler, would be big victories for Gun Control Inc. The anti-gun lobby is hungry and they’ll need a Senate majority in order to expand federal gun control.

January 5, 2021 is the pivotal date that will determine the balance of the U.S. Senate. Georgia voters have clear choices in Perdue and Loeffler. A vote for Ossoff and Warnock is a green light for Second Amendment infringements.
