Venezuela’s collapse is the product of decades of damaging economic policies. Insecurity, rampant inflation, capital depletion, and passenger shortages have caused American airlines to suspend flights to the country.

ZeroHedge notes that of the 32 foreign airlines present in Venezuelan since 2013, one-third remain active in the country, and the number of seats on international flights have dropped by 80%.

In March, American Airlines became the last major carrier to stop flights going to Venezuela.

With geopolitical tensions brewing in Iran and Venezuela, the U.S. government has had to take precautionary measures to keep its citizens safe in the event of a potential conflagration.

Hispanic Oregon Candidate Fesses Up to Committing a Race Hoax

Published

on

A race hustler recently admitted to writing a racist letter to himself.

Jonathan Lopez, a candidate for Umatilla County commissioner, fessed up to writing an anonymous racist letter on July 6, 2020.

According to the Washington Times, Lopez claimed to have received the letter in June.

But he then confessed to the police that he was the individual who wrote the letter, the East Oregonian reported.

Lopez is Hispanic and claimed that he found a letter directed to him which was allegedly filled with racist language on June 23. He published the photo of a typed letter on Facebook, which hundreds of users shared in a span of 24 hours. Since then, the post has been removed.

Things changed, though, when police did a follow-up with Lopez about the incident on July 3. Law enforcement officials recounted that Lopez confessed to being the author of the letter.

“The time spent on this fictitious claim means time lost on other matters, not to mention it needlessly adds to the incredible tension that exists in our nation today,” Hermiston Police Chief Jason Edmiston said to the newspaper.

Edmiston then said the case would be sent over to the Umatilla County District Attorney’s office. From there it would be reviewed for initiating a false report, which is a Class A misdemeanor in Oregon.

Lopez ended up losing a primary election for a seat on the Umatilla County Board of Commissioners in May 2020.

In correspondence with the East Oregonian, Lopez claimed that he wanted to have a discussion with Edmiston about racism in Umatilla County. He used the letter as an example of the alleged racism that people experienced on a daily basis.

“I never meant to file a report, it just kind of spiraled out,” he stated. Lopez added that he “never meant to mislead” the public.

America is going through a late stage of political correctness, where all sorts of grievance politics is encouraged against normal Americans.

A polity with such internal turmoil is destined for social instability sooner or later.
