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.

ACU Calls on Delta Airlines to Correct Their Lies About Georgia Voter ID law

Continuing its efforts to protect our liberty from the threats of woke corporations the ACU sent a letter to the Delta over their Georgia lies

Published

Since Georgia passed their election integrity law, anyone who has followed the news knows how major corporations have taken steps based on the false cancel culture claims about the bill. A week ago, we learned that the American Conservative Union (ACU) announced the establishment of The Center To Protect Voters and Their Voices. This ACU unit is designed to prevent woke corporations from using their resources to skew the political discourse toward policies that attack Americans’ freedoms as they did in Georgia and previously in other states. Delta Georgia lies Now the ACU is expanding its fight to protect the rights of Americans. They wrote the CEO of Delta Airlines and published online, a letter calling on Delta Airlines, Inc. to correct their inaccurate description Of Georgia’s voter ID law. Or, as I call it, their lies. Here’s the letter: Mr. Edward Bastian Chief Executive Officer, Delta Air Lines Inc. Delta Air Lines Inc. Dear Mr. Bastian, As one of the nation’s largest airlines, Delta touches the lives of hundreds of millions of people throughout the freedom-loving world. Many of these are Americans who value free enterprise, common sense and fairness. Overseas, they are advocates for democracy who look to the United States for guidance as they strive to replicate our ability to respect individual sovereignty and liberty. On behalf of all these people, the American Conservative Union (ACU) urges you to correct your misleading and damaging statements about the Georgia voting law, SB 202, and we ask for a meeting to discuss our concerns with your embrace of unAmerican political forces. In the past, Delta has needed the support of conservative organizations, like ACU, to pursue sound policies that sustain Delta’s business. When your interests align with conservative values, we have been able to work together. For example, many…

Poll: Majority of Americans Think Corporations have Gotten Too Political

A new poll finds that a majority of Americans think that American corporations have gotten far too political and should get back to just selling stuff.

A new poll finds that a majority of Americans think that U.S. corporations have gotten far too political and should get back to just selling stuff. We have witnessed a growing number of corporations going woke since Georgia passed its new election integrity law. These corporations are pushing a hardcore, left-wing line of lies against the Georgia and have made all sorts of false claims about the new law. But a recent poll by the Daily Wire finds that a majority of Americans are already sick and tired of the left-wing posturing of these corporations. The Daily Wire poll found that 64 percent of those surveyed are less likely to support these big-mouthed corporations. The poll also found that most Americans did not support the decision by Major League Baseball to pull its All-Star Game from Atlanta. https://twitter.com/guypbenson/status/1379845164169101313 https://twitter.com/guypbenson/status/1379845165897121792 So, why are these corporations doing all this despite the fact that they are pissing off half of America? Well, there are two reasons. First is cowardice. Instead of standing for American free speech and respecting the rights of the states to run their own lives, these corporations are siding with the anti-American left and are engaging in economic terrorism against us. They are doing this not out of principle, though. They are doing it to prevent people from suing them. After all, leftists sue everybody at the drop of a hat. Conservatives almost never do. That means these corporations are guessing that they can escape legal problems by mollifying the left despite angering the right. The second reason is business. These big corporations imagine that if they follow the left, it will help lead to the destruction of their smaller competitors and they will be the last men standing. They also imagine that they can control government through their big…
