And, In Other News….

Trump dominates the news so much, I thought you might want some good news!
So what was Opal Tometi, co-founder of Black Lives Matter doing in Venezuela? She was there to support fellow -Socialist/Communist Presidente Maduro get his legislative and political head handed to him by the opposition for the first time in 17 years.

The opposition gained a two – thirds plus legislative victory, meaning that the fractured opposition can overrule Maduro if they stick together after January when the election results take effect. The new legislature can even unseat the Venezuelan Supreme Court.

Maduro, for his part, bounces between accepting the voter’s will, and threatening to take his socialist rabble to the streets.

Stay tuned. Maduro can stay in office until 2017, or he may stage a coup. Socialists/Communists are not known for their adherence to voting. Maduro has announced his intention to keep opposition leaders in jail, and to stop the legislature from replacing the corruption — filled and nepotism riven bureaucracy from being replaced.

Meanwhile, Black Lives Matter didn’t help get their candidate any help at all. Come to think of it, a massive defeat like the Socialists took last Sunday, is not something that the Socialists have a Democratic methodology with which to respond.
