How to Tackle Venezuela’s Transition and Military Corruption

Nobody knows for sure who the real president of Venezuela is at the moment: Nicolás Maduro, who was sworn in on Jan. 10, or Juan Guaidó, who shortly afterward assumed the powers of the presidency, on behalf of the legislature. Mr. Guaidó has captured the heart of the nation. A vast majority of Venezuelans support him. All political parties in...

HOW VENEZUELA STRUCK IT POOR

In the spring of 1959, at a secretive meeting at a yacht club in Cairo, Venezuela’s then-minister of mines and hydrocarbons, Juan Pablo Pérez Alfonso, hatched a plan to give big oil-producing countries more control over their black gold — and a greater share of the wealth it promised to create.

The General Has To Go

Excerpts from my new book. "The Mule" - Now available - In a 1985 meeting, in Costa Rica, William Barr advised V.P Bush that funds and product were being siphoned off by partners in “The Enterprise”.

The Worst Kind of Criminal. One who Steals from the Poor or Disadvantaged. Venezuela, Scumbags New Target.

By Melanio Escobar; translated by Lucy James | Venezuela is currently home to one of the worst economies in the world. The inflation rate, which hit 1,000,000 percent by the end of 2018, has forced Venezuelans to adopt survival methods. One of these is called foreign remittances.

The Hellhole of the Americas

I’ve written how Venezuela is a socialist hellhole. The people are starving. It’s got to the point where people were eating out of garbage cans and breaking into zoos for meat. Pets are being eaten.

No Favors for Cutting in Line!

This damn caravan of migrants irks me. Why? Because I had to wait in line in the system to get a visa for my son who was born in Colombia and his mother. It took 2 years and cost around $5,000 for the two of them. I worked 3 jobs to get the money to get their visas. And...

To Serve or Not to Serve – The Matt Whitaker Delimma

Unsuccessful in their attempt to pressure Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker into recusing himself from overseeing the Mueller Probe, the Democrats argued Whitaker’s appointment was unconstitutional under the Federal Vacancies Reform Act. Unfortunately for them, the DOJ shot down that contention as well. Ever resourceful, Democrats have a new plan to vanquish their newest enemy. Liberal watchdog group, American Oversight...

ECUADOR – HOME OF THE MARLIN BOULEVARD

Born and raised on the Gulf Coast of Florida in St. Petersburg, I had three passions. Hunting, Fishing, and Skiing. So naturally when the opportunity came up to buy a Marina along what is famously known as Marlin Boulevard, I jumped at the opportunity.     Puerto Amistad (Friendly Port) is located on the Pacific coast of Ecuador on a small   protected bay...
