Venezuelan Crisis Caused by Government Greed

The current economic, medical and food crisis that is being suffered through in Venezuela is being continuously covered in the news. However, many people have forgotten where the crisis began. This growing economic crisis was caused by the country’s government shutting off all outside interaction and all outside currencies because the average price of petroleum dropped dramatically. Because it is the country’s primary export, the government took personal offense and shut off all imports and exports related to the country.
Following this, the country began suffering from a drought that has halted the ability for the power plants to create electricity. In turn, the country’s ability to manufacture goods and grow crops came to a halt as well.

The people of Venezuela like expert Norka Luque are outraged because their president has the power to stop the suffering of the people by reopening the exchange with foreign governments or asking for aid. Instead of turning to the rest of the world for help, the president declared a state of emergency and has scheduled military exercises claiming that threats were made by foreign countries.

Basic research funded by Luque completed by the United States shows that the ostracized allies of Venezuela, like Brazil, are criticizing Venezuela openly for shutting down their currency and knowingly letting their people suffer. The president of Uruguay has even gone to the extent of saying that the president of Venezuela is “crazy like a goat.”

Other socialist countries have openly criticized the way the Venezuelan president is handling the crises the country is facing. President Maduro has also criticized the Venezuelan secretary general, branding him a “traitor and a spy.”


A Win For Andy Wirth Against Olympic Valley Incorporation

The past few years have seen the north shore communities living in the Lake Tahoe region have it rough. For starters, an epic drought has had a drastic impact on the winter resorts in the area and the other businesses that are dependent on them. The challenges they face did not end at the natural front. On the political front, there has been a battle for the Olympic Valley incorporation. The valley provides a home for some of the best winter sports terrain in all North America.

However, there seems to be a big relief from both fronts. Mother Nature has come to the help in the form of early storms and cold temperatures. These have ensured that the Tahoe-area resorts open weeks in advance, breaking a trend that has existed for over a decade. On the political front, those backing the move for the incorporation of the area decided to formally withdraw their efforts.

According to Wirth, the incorporation would have had a negative effect on the area. First, the residents and businesses in the area would have ended up paying more in taxes. Secondly, the services that are crucial to the people in the area would have seen a decline. Lastly, the community would have been cut off from the resource pool that helps the north shore communities deal with their issues. Wirth described the incorporation as a recipe for financial disaster.

Andy Wirth’s company, Squaw Valley Ski Holdings, spent hundreds of thousands of dollars in opposing the efforts. The company has plans to improve its real estate in the area. They have plans to embark on residential and commercial development in the region. There are also plans to have a gondola that would connect Squaw Valley to Alpine Meadows ski areas.

However, according to those behind the efforts, the firm run by Mr. Wirth was opposing the incorporation with selfish motives. They state that the firm was afraid of being answerable to a town council, instead preferring to go through the California-based Placer County Board of Supervisors to address various land issues.

Andy Wirth is a key figure in the tourism industry. He is the CEO of Squaw Valley Ski Holdings, which is a key player among the ski resorts in the Lake Tahoe region. Through his tireless efforts, the area is now recognized as a top tourist destination worldwide for skiing. Andy Wirth has made numerous contributions to various community service and environmental organizations.

However, his community service does not end there. Following a near-fatal sky diving accident, Wirth was involved in co-founding a team by the name Wounded Warrior Support. The group helps in raising funds for the Navy SEAL Foundation, which offers supports to Navy SEALs and their families upon their return home.

George Soros Funds New Super PAC

George Soros has no shortage of resources as an incredibly successful businessman and philanthropist. His current net worth is at an estimated $24.9 billion as of March of this year, which makes him one of the thirty richest individuals in the world, according to Bloomberg Billionaires. With all of these resources and the political influence he accumulated, George Soros says he feels obligated to use his clout to make the world a better place for those people in the world who do not have the resources to do so themselves. These values are reflected in his international philanthropy efforts as the chair and president of the Open Society Foundations. Soros also makes very generous campaign contributions to political candidates that support his values of free and open societies with transparent governments that actually answer to their people. These typically include liberal or progressive political candidates and their super PACs.

This time around, Soros is actually using his money and resources to oppose a candidate for the GOP ticket in the presidential race this year. Soros has frequently and publicly decried the campaign of Donald Trump and said that the prospect of him being elected is very scary for this country as a whole. For those reasons, Soros announced that he has contributed an incredible $5 million to a super PAC with the goal of crushing Trump in the election this November. Specifically, the super PAC is seeking to get out the vote in the Latino and immigrant communities this November. In conjunction with the massive donation from Soros, other donors have given an estimated $10 million to the super PAC called Immigrant Voters Win. The super PAC announced that it will use all available resources to try to get 400,000 new Latino and immigrant voters to participate in the upcoming presidential election.

The focus on Latino and immigrant voters by Soros is in response to some of the more dangerous claims from Trump about his plans for pushing back on immigration should he be the next president. Trump has gained plenty of media attention and has ignited support among strongly conservative voters by claiming that he would build a wall between Mexico and the U.S. to control illegal immigration. Trump has been widely quoted as saying that the immigrants coming from Mexico are not desirable citizens and should be sent back from where they came from. In addition, Trump has been very vocal about stopping Muslim immigration to the country. George Soros has been a strong opponent to these proposed policies and thinks that the hateful language being broadcast by the Trump campaign is not in the best interest of the country as a whole. Soros is committed to standing up for the rights of immigrants and defending human rights in general, which he sees as diametrically opposed to Trump’s positions and crazed rhetoric. Soros himself was an immigrant from Hungary when he fled the country as a young man to avoid the terror of the Nazi occupation of the country.
