Adios Chávez?

News

Following an almost Fidel Castro-like reign of 14 years, Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez died after a 14 years long reign in Venezuela on March 5, 2013. He had won a fourth term on October 7, extending his presidency to 2019, but cancer cut him off.

His funeral is being held today, but his final resting place will not be a cemetery. He will be on public view for everyone to see. The Venezuelan strongman will be embalmed, like Lenin and Mao Zedong. His remains are being laid to rest at a military museum where generations of Venezuelans can theoretically visit.

Time for Reckoning

We the people do not need Batman and Robin for this alleged criminal investigation of Russian interference in our democratic process. https://youtu.be/6qG9axae8eE NO NEED FOR THE 'I' WORD NECESSARY YET

Nor do we need a regular Joe retired politician who was Al Gore’s running mate as the new FBI Director. President Trump is said to be leaning toward naming former Connecticut senator Joseph Lieberman to replace James Comey. https://youtu.be/Sn-u1s4mKCo http://www.4president.us/websites/2000/gore2000website.htm
