Venezuela Supermarket Sells Ketchup

A startling new video posted to social media apparently shows a Venezuela supermarket with endless aisles stocked with nothing but Heinz Ketchup as the nation experiences a socialism-sponsored food shortage.

The video shows a couple walking through a supermarket, revealing aisle after aisle sparingly stocked with ketchup. Occasionally, between rows and rows of ketchup bottles, other food items can be spotted in the one minute video.

There also appear to be a few bottles of salad dressing, barbecue sauce, and water available for purchase.

Rows Of Tomato Ketchup In Venezuelan Supermarket

Food shortages have got so bad in Venezuela that shops are stocking shelves with nothing but tomato ketchup 😳🍅

Posted by UNILAD on Tuesday, March 19, 2019

Last month the United States attempted to send more aid shipments including food and medical supplies to Venezuela, only to have illegitimate Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro stop the shipments at the border. As the socialist nation continues to collapse, it has been unwilling to accept most foreign assistance.

American officials expressed optimism that interim President Juan Guaidó would be able to facilitate the aid shipments.

Reuters reported:

The U.S. officials said trucks carrying the aid, including high-protein foods, would arrive in Cucuta this week at the request of Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido, who last month declared himself to be the South American nation’s interim president.

Opposition lawmaker Miguel Pizarro told reporters in Caracas on Tuesday that Guaido’s team would talk about how the aid would move once it was in place. Shipments were also coming from Venezuelan companies abroad, Colombia, Canada and Germany.

A senior U.S. administration official said it was up to Guaido to decide when and how to move the supplies into the country. “We will seek to help him to do so by whatever means possible,” the official said.

While meeting with Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro yesterday, President Donald J. Trump thanked him for standing with the United States against the Maduro regime, and for allowing the United States to use Brazil as a staging area for relief shipments.

President Bolsonaro viewed the cooperation as the possible foundation of a new alliance between the two largest capitalist nations in the Western hemisphere, and President Trump discussed the possibility of allowing the South American nation to join NATO. The two presidents also celebrated what President Trump calls the “twilight hour” of socialism.

YIKES: Venezuelan Patrol Boat Sinks After Ramming German Cruise Ship

Not the most illustrious incident for Venezuela.

Published

on

A Venezuelan naval patrol boat ended up sinking after an altercation earlier this week with none other than a German cruise ship.

A statement from Columbia Cruise Services of Hamburg, Germany, explained the oddball confrontation between the luxury cruise ship RCGS Resolute and the Venezuelan naval patrol boat Naiguata.

The Venezuelan boat had radioed the cruise ship, that wasn’t carrying passengers, and demanded to know of the ship’s intentions as it passed by the Venezuelan territory of La Tortuga island. The Resolute’s crew had been carrying on engine maintenance in the area, maintaining they were operating in international waters.

After the cruise ship refused to comply with a demand that it approach the Venezuelan port of Puerto Moreno, the fast boat approached it after midnight on March 30th.

Crew from the Naiguata are said to have fired small arms at the Resolute, after which the boat tried to approach the ship in an effort to force it to change course to Venezuelan territorial waters. The much smaller Venezuelan vessel failed to realize the Resolute had a reinforced hull in order to allow it to sail in icy waters.

The Naiguata suffered serious damages from the repeated collisions with the cruise ship. It began to take on water and efforts on part of the cruise ship’s crew to contact the vessel went totally unanswered. Columbia Cruise Services say the Resolute left the area after receiving word from an international maritime agency that no assistance would be needed, and the Venezuelan crew of the patrol boat were later rescued.

Nicolas Maduro tried to explain away the extremely embarrassing incident for socialist Venezuela, claiming that the luxury cruise ship was carrying foreign mercenaries planning to carry out operations against the country. He described the unarmed luxury cruise ship’s presence north of his country’s territorial waters as a “act of terrorism and piracy.”
