While His Citizens Starve, Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro Shows Off Expensive Taste on Instagram

How sick is this?

It is astounding how many clueless aspiring socialists there are in the United States as we can watch in real time exactly how awful socialist policies are for the people of a nation in which they are fully implemented.

Free health care and education mean very little when there’s no medicine or food, which is precisely what it is like in Venezuela, where people are starving, hunting for dogs and digging through garbage in the streets as their president, Nicolas Maduro, still lives quite comfortably.

In fact, during a recent trip to China to solicit aid for his cash-starved government, he enjoyed a lavish steak dinner with social media celebrity chef Nusret Gokce during a stopover in Istanbul with seemingly little self-awareness just how insane it was to dine on steak while his own people rarely see red meat…let alone frequent meals.

Turkish celebrity chef Nusret Gokce, who owns a chain of restaurants and is known as Salt Bae for his theatrical style of sprinkling salt on his steaks, posted videos and photos on his Instagram and Twitter pages showing Maduro and his wife, Cilia, dining.

In one video, Maduro tells fellow diners, “This is a once in a lifetime moment,” as Gokce dramatically slices steak for them by their table while swaying his hips. In another video, Maduro smokes a cigar taken from a box with a plaque of his name.

Maduro confirmed the visit in a state broadcast later on Monday. Gokce did not respond to an email seeking comment.

Venezuela’s political opposition jumped on the meal as evidence of Maduro’s disconnect from the country’s crisis, which has caused over 2 million people to emigrate to escape widespread shortages of food and medicine.

Almost two-thirds of Venezuelans surveyed in a university study published in February said they had lost on average 11 kilograms (24 lbs) in body weight last year. Eighty-seven percent were assessed to live in poverty.

“While Venezuelans suffer and die of hunger, Nicolas Maduro and Cilia enjoy one of the priciest restaurants in the world, all with money stolen from the Venezuelan people,” tweeted opposition leader Julio Borges, the former head of Congress.

On social media, Venezuelans shared mocked-up images showing Gokce doing his trade-mark salt sprinkle pose above a skeletal child.

You see, uninformed aspiring American socialists, despite having multiple regimes such as Maduro’s as a reference point, seem to either willingly ignore or somehow have never noticed that this is simply par for the course for a socialist leader.

At the end of the day, socialist governments never actually redistribute the wealth from the 1% to the 99%…they just eventually become the 1% themselves.

Save conservative media!

Democrat Senator Refuses to Condemn Antifa, Then Abruptly Storms Out of Hearing (Watch)

Ooooo, she got ’em good!!

There are a number of rotten apples in both the lower and upper chamber. The vast majority of them will vote for Joe Biden in November. Hawaii’s Mazie Hirono is one of the worst. When asked by Senator Ted Cruz to denounce the wildly anti-American group, “Antifa,” Mazie refused. She even took things a step further and walked out of the hearing. Yes, she literally took her ball and walked away so nobody else could play. And that’s what libs do best. From Fox News: Tensions flared at a Senate hearing on Antifa when a top Democrat walked out of the room declaring she couldn’t sit through Sen. Ted Cruz’s rhetorical speeches any longer. The dustup occurred when Cruz, R-Texas, blasted Democrats for not condemning Antifa more directly for the violence and destruction that has taken hold in certain U.S. cities in the wake of George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis.

And she likely won’t face any push back, whatsoever. VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LHG_u-p15CQ&feature=emb_title Even when Congressional liberals let it slip that impeaching President Trump is all about preventing him from winning re-election, the media doesn’t care. Is that an issue? Sure. But at the end of the day, the public isn’t stupid. They can see that Dems have cheapened the impeachment process for political gain – and it should come back to bite them sooner rather than later. Check out Hawaii Senator Mazie Hirono (D). She made it clear that there is “tremendous fear” Trump will win in November if he’s not kicked out of office before then.

If NYC Doesn’t Get Federal Bailout, De Blasio Set to Lay Off Over 20,000 City Employees

The Democrat way: cause massive problems (or refuse to fix them), then demand more and more money to cover the problem like a band-aid – knowing full well how easily it can peel off. New Yorkers, what were you thinking when you put this guy in office? Want a do-over or what?

Barbot, in the resignation letter she submitted Tuesday morning, said the Health Department’s expertise was not sufficiently tapped. “I leave my post today with deep disappointment that during the most critical public health crisis in our lifetime, that the Health Department’s incomparable disease control expertise was not used to the degree it could have been.” Do the right thing and resign, Bill. Enough is enough.
