Prosecutor heard from.  Not seen.  Heard from.


Kick back to the last post for a refresher on what's what.



Quote

"Somebody is threatening my family", Luisa Ortega said in a radio interview (Ed. Note:  From an undisclosed location.).  "They harass them.  They follow them, patrol cars that look like SEBIN", she said, referring to the Venezuelan government's Bolivarian Intelligence Service (SEBIN).


State officials have launched a series of verbal attacks on Ortega, ranging from questioning her sanity to accusing her of promoting violence.



Y'all wanna bet she gets "Breitbart'd", Scalia'd ?..... and in a very public manner too.  Message-nudge-sender.



Here's another message-nudge-sender:

Caracas, Venezuela - The Daily Telegraph - 13 June 2017  ---  The Venezuelan Supreme Court on Monday voted to reject a motion that would prevent President Nicolas Maduro from rewriting the country's constitution.  As a result.....

Venezuela protesters set fire to Supreme Court building.


Violence broke out in protests at the Supreme Court over a bid to change the constitution and Venezuela's chief prosecutor said on Monday her family had been threatened and followed by intelligence agents.


Outside the Supreme Court headquarters in downtown Caracas, protesters backing Ms Ortega were confronted earlier by government supporters.



Nada ver aqui, maing.





But like a good neighbor.....

Peru calls for regional action to avoid a 'sea of blood' from Venezuela.

Lima, Peru - Reuters - 13 June 2017  ---  Latin America needs to take action to help Venezuela resolve its political crisis or risk the country turning into a "sea of blood," Peruvian President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski said.


"If nothing is done, we are going to end up with a sea full of blood."  He warned of the threat of massive immigration.....



Translation:  Build that wall.







Doctor !   Doctor !   Is there a doctor in the house ?!?

Doctors flee desperate Venezuela to work in safer places.

Ancud, Chile - The Wall Street Journal - 12 June 2017  ---  On a recent day in this remote Chilean island town, Dr. Jhomar Yansen rushed to operate on a man who had been kicked in the gut by a sheep and was suffering severe internal bleeding.

The surgeon used to work in his native Venezuela, saving patients with gunshot and knife wounds, until last year when he fled the chaotic, impoverished country like thousands of other professionals.


Read it all.

From the other side:   How pure evil views Venezuela's issues.



Iran state media - 17 June:   Maduro rebukes US for meddling in Venezuela's internal affairs.


Al Jazeera - 17 June:   Don't blame socialism for Venezuela's woes.



.....and how we missed this, eyedunno.


MSNBC - 21 April:   MSNBC host Rachel Maddow blames Trump for Venezuela crisis.

I haven't heard any of these things all over the news like I would expect.   Obviously, Kenny is making all this up.  It couldn't be anything else.

The following headline is from Reuters, 17 June 2017:


Venezuela's President Nicolas Maduro said Twitter is an "expression of fascism" after accounts linked to his government were suspended, accusing the U.S. company of persecuting his followers.


Twitter - The place that suspends and bans American conservatives and patriots who believe in freedom and rights for all, simply for being American conservatives and patriots who believe in freedom and rights for all.

Venezuela - The place that imprisons and disappears freedom-and-rights-seeking citizens, simply for being freedom-and-rights-seeking citizens.



Yep.

Venezuela's 'Goldman Bounce' In Reserves Is Gone

ZeroHedge - 18 June 2017  ---  The country’s cash hoard has fallen $326 million this week to $10.2 billion, near the 15-year low reached last month before the windfall.



*Poof* ; Gone.

Whatashocka.

Somebody might wish to look into Maduro's and his typical Muslim V.P.'s bank accounts, along with the accounts of the close-in circle folks.

Venezuela's Supreme Court cleared the way for a trial against the country's chief prosecutor.

Caracas, Venezuela - The Associated Press - 20 June 2017  ---  In a statement Tuesday, the government-stacked court said it had approved a request from a socialist party lawmaker to lift prosecutor Luisa Ortega Diaz's protection from prosecution for allegedly committing "grave errors" in her role as the nation's top law enforcement official.

In the past few weeks, as Ortega Diaz has pursued a number of legal actions seeking to block Maduro's power grab, government supporters have mounted a campaign to discredit her actions, alternately accusing her of being crazy or a spokeswoman for "right-wing terrorists".

Ortega remained defiant in the face of the high court's move, saying the ruling was an attack not against her but the very foundations of the Venezuela's democracy.  "Hanging over the country is a bleak outlook that could destroy the state."  And she added, "We have to begin demanding that they start providing the bills of where all this money is coming from that that they spend on stages and for the marches.  Maybe what they spend on stages would be better used buying medicine and food."

"All Venezuelans need to stand up to rescue our nation's democracy", National Assembly President Julio Borges said in a press conference surrounded by top opposition leaders.




Mr. Borges, your nation hasn't been an even remote ghost of a democracy since day one of the late Ooooogo Chavez' tenure, let alone his replacement Maduro.  Y'all g'wanna haffta git-r-done the old fashioned way.


As for Ms. Ortega-Diaz, the initial charges being brought are as follows:  Three counts of treason.

1.  Failure to assist in further destroying the few remaining rights of a long-ago free people.

2.  Disagreeing with President For Life Maduro on any matter.

3.  Speaking in public and through the media about unapproved topics and possible solutions that could actually help the people of Venezuela.

The place sounds more like 1970s Africa all the time.  Not that there was a big leap.

Maduro has dared our Marines to invade his slum of a nation. Why would they? They get 3 squares a day! What benefit would they get?
