Rule 5: Natalia Lozano

The first thing Chavez took were the guns

“Socialist dictator Hugo Chavez initially ran  a months-long amnesty program encouraging Venezuelans to trade their arms for electrical goods. That year, there were only 37 recorded voluntary gun surrenders, while the majority of seizures – more than 12,500 – were by force.”

Now, as Venezuelans flee and the state crumbles, no arms are legally obtainable.

“A former gun store owner inside Venezuela – who told Fox News he has now been relegated to only selling fishing supplies since the ban – said he can’t sell any type of weaponry – even a slingshot – and underscored that even BB ammunition and airsoft guns are only issued to police and military officers. The punishment for illicit carrying or selling a weapon now is 20 years behind bars.”

Migrant invaders: Moms, kids window-dressing

“To hear the news report it, the migrant caravan is just a spontaneous uprising of women and children fleeing Honduran gangs…

“What’s lost is just how hard, hard, left the organizers of what has become this humanitarian disaster are. Even the liberation-theology types are getting concerned. The caravan agenda is a hard-left, pro-Chavista one, and drawing the fringiest leftwing groups. To its organizers on the ground…it’s a by-any-means-necessary political mission. A look at the caravan organizers and their allies shows that their real aim is to confront the U.S. The moms-and-kids are window dressing.”

Our invaders are Latin commies, pure and simple.

“This is amazing stuff, completely ignored by the mainstream media and available only in the Spanish-language press. And these people are at the heart of the caravan roiling both the U.S. and Mexico, creating a humanitarian disaster in the true Marxist tradition. My question: Why are they completely off the U.S. press radar?”

Because the U.S. press is increasingly composed of low-paid millennials who were taught in college to be sympathetic to the collective instead of the individual?
