Unrest In Venezuela -- News Updates April 24, 2017

Reuters: Venezuelans protest for elections, unrest enters fourth week

Venezuelans erected barricades with garbage and even bathtubs on Monday and snarled traffic with mass "sit-ins" along major thoroughfares to press their demand for early elections as anti-government protests entered a fourth week.

Ten people have been killed during clashes this month between security forces armed with rubber bullets and tear gas and protesters sometimes throwing rocks and Molotov cocktails.

At least 10 people have also died during night-time looting.

President Nicolas Maduro's socialist government accuses foes of seeking a violent coup with U.S. connivance, while the opposition says he is a dictator repressing peaceful protest.

Maduro looks like a caricature of a salesman, a sleazy salesman.

It is how he has his arms out and hand pointed forward.

In a previous life he was a communist or snake oil salesman.

Weak, Very weak. Allegation without proof.

Remind your mother to get you some vitamin supplements.

"Rahm’s last opponent, Jesus “Chuy” Garcia, was caught posing with Latin Kings gang leaders who had been arrested after working on a political campaign. His son was arrested for threatening police officers as a member of the Two Six gang. Garcia’s protégé, Ricardo Muñoz, benefited from an election in which the Latin Kings turned out to vote for him on pain of being beaten up by other gang members."

Dems also pay gangs to get out the vote.
