Meanwhile in the Socialist Paradise of Venezuela

Actually this story is about the impacts on one of Venezuela’s neighbors. Pentagon prepares to dispatch hospital ship to Colombia amid refugee crisis.

As a result of a dire economic and health care situation, rising numbers of Venezuelans are joining an exodus that has set off alarms across Latin America. The United Nations said earlier this week that an estimated 2.3 million Venezuelans had fled the crisis-torn country as of June, mainly to Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Brazil.

Those refugees have apparently overwhelmed the health care system of Colombia. And other South American countries. Several hundred thousand refugees have escaped from Venezuela, a large number of them are malnourished.


Poland Doubts European NATO Countries Would Come to Its Defense

Because who in Europe has the military might to stand up for NATO? Poland marks Army Day with parade, call for US military base.

Poland has been lobbying for a permanent US military presence, because they are worried about Russia. (As far as the Poles see it, Russia still holds territory they never gave back after the end of WWI.) The Poles are also not 100% sure of the rest of NATO.

Poland considers the U.S. its key protector, with some doubts about whether Europe’s NATO members really would ever come to its defense.

German military might isn’t what it once was. The UK is in better shape, but Poland is one of a few NATO countries – aside from the USA – that meets its 2% of GDP military-spending-commitment. (UK, Estonia and Greece, were the others in 2016.)

Some of the Swedish Royal Family Has Had Enough

I’m sure that the timing is purely coincidental. The Sunshine State gets its own royal residents! Princess Madeleine of Sweden and her American financier husband announce they are relocating to Florida with their three children.

I’m sure it has nothing to do with escalating violence, including grenade attacks, and mass acts of vandalism.

Sweden: Gangs of Masked “Youths” Torch Cars in Several Cities

The government is asking “what the heck are you doing?” Swedish leader voices anger after dozens of cars are burned.

Police spokesman Hans Lippens said Tuesday that initial reports indicate that about 80 cars were set ablaze overnight, chiefly in Sweden’s second largest city, Goteborg, and nearby Trollhattan, an industrial city.

Fires were also reported on a smaller scale in Malmo, Sweden’s third largest city.

No injuries, but the Swedish Prime Minister, Stefan Lofven, is getting angry. (Must be all that cold weather; I would already BE angry. Guess that’s why I’m not Prime Minister of anything.) No motive except to damage property and frighten people. No identification of the “masked youngsters” because of the masks.

Update: Thanks to Gates of Vienna, we know it is much more than just 3 cities the media was reporting. And witnesses describe the “youths” as immigrants.

Political Disagreement Ends with Democrat Shooting Someone

Why are the Democrats so violent? Unfriended! Democrat drives to man’s house and shoots him after heated political disagreement on Facebook.

A Facebook dispute boiled over into real life on Monday when a Democrat drove over to another man’s home and shot him.

Brian Sebring, 44, of Tampa, Florida, was arrested for shooting Alex Stephens, 46, also of Tampa, in the thigh and buttocks after their online disagreement.

Because if you disagree with the Left, you much be destroyed. (Hat tip to The Other McCain and Crazy People Are Dangerous: Democrat Shoots Man After Facebook Quarrel.

Which Party Is All About Violence?

A big hint should be all those guys running around in masks. Democrats: The Party of Hate.

The Left doesn’t disagree with the Right. The Left hates and wants to destroy the Right.

This is what your friend or relative who votes for Democrats is actually voting for — political violence against anyone who disagrees with them, so that Democrats are free to commit assault in the name of “social justice,” to deny the constitutional rights of citizens who vote Republican.

This is in relation to an incident in California, but the attitude – giving a free pass to folks who commit violence against Republicans – is not limited to California.
