Even the Nation has a mealy mouthed intro to this article. Almost half sounds like a quasi- justification, and then you get to a little about the pre-crisis years.

So many people too scared to buck the official narrative on Venezuela. That country has been so demonized over the years!

Yes, it’s quite apparent who the MSNBCLINTON’s favored candidate is. Chances are that I won’t be watching, reading, or taking to heart, any of their crap anytime soon.

Protesters Raise Funds To Transport Trump Baby Blimp In Time For President’s El Paso Rally

In less than a day, activists from El Paso raised enough money to transport the mocking Donald Trump baby blimp to the Texas city in time for the president’s first campaign rally of the year on Monday, which is expected to center on his demand for border wall funding.

The “Baby Trump Does El Paso” GoFundMe page had $4,086 as of Friday, easily meeting a $3,500 goal. Extra funds will be donated to the Annunciation House in El Paso, a nonprofit that provides support to immigrants.

The GoFundMe campaign’s organizer, Laura Valdez, noted in a post that the blimp was “already on its way” from California.

The president’s welcome to the city may be a bit chilly in several ways. El Paso officials are furious that Trump falsely characterized their city as “one of the most dangerous in the nation” before a border barrier went up. In fact, contrary to Trump’s State of the Union slam, El Paso has been one of America’s safest cities for decades. The border barrier wasn’t constructed until 2008.

“It is sad to hear President Trump state falsehoods about El Paso in an attempt to justify the building of a 2,000-mile wall,” said Sheriff Richard Wiles.

Rep. Veronica Escobar (D-Texas) sent Trump a letter Thursday demanding an apology for his State of the Union statements. She attacked the president’s “outright lies” and “cheap attempts to use our community as a political prop.”

To say that losing insects would be devastating for the food chain is a wild understatement.
