Claiming that the bakers were selling underweight bread and using price-regulated flour to illegally bake items such as sweet rolls and croissants, we see in their story another scathing indictment of socialism, where looting and chaos continue and the arms of government power blame the little guy for the mess they're in instead of the disastrously failed system.
The 2nd story Drudge linked to from Yahoo News continues the 'bread war' theme in Venezuela, reporting the illegal brownies and pastries being made by the obviously 'anarchistic bakers' required the soldiers and military to raid the more than 700 bakeries around the capital of Venezuela this week, enforcing a rule that required 90% of wheat to be destined to bread rather than pastries and cakes.
This March 7th story from The Hill reports Venezuela is once again a world leader though not for their soccer teams or 'miss universe' winners nor oil revenues but as the true global leader in violence. Shootings, stabbings, grenades, bombs tear gas, kidnappings, gang violence, extortion, you name it†obviously goes hand in hand with hunger.
I keep telling people that this is coming to America, but a lot of people out there donít want to believe me.
But it is most certainly coming.
Thanks to chronically empty store shelves and severe food shortages, people in Venezuela are losing weight at an astounding pace. In the United States it would be a good thing if much of the population lost this much weight, but in Venezuela it definitely is notÖ
The global economy is more interconnected than ever before, and pain that starts in one region can rapidly spread to others.
The biggest debt bubble that the world has ever seen is starting to burst, and over the coming years we are going to see financial pain on a scale that would be unimaginable to most of us at this moment.
But even now there are those that would suggest that this colossal debt bubble can continue growing much faster than global GDP indefinitely, and this sort of exceedingly reckless optimism is leading many astray.
Most Americans do not understand this, but the truth is that the Federal Reserve has far more power over the U.S. economy than anyone else does, and that includes Donald Trump.
Politicians tend to get the credit or the blame for how the economy is performing, but in reality it is an unelected, unaccountable panel of central bankers that is running the show, and until something is done about the Fed our long-term economic problems will never be fixed.
The Federal Reserve is currently setting the stage for a recession, a new housing crisis and a stock market crash, and if those things happen unfortunately it will be Donald Trump that will primarily get the blame.
And as we learn from Karl Denninger in the 2nd video below,†'this beast will not just roll over and go away quietly into the night'. Denninger warns the collapse of the entire system may be ahead and it may be tied to the disastrous thing that is 'Obamacare'. A collapse is coming. This is a mathematical certainty. If youíre not prepared for living independent of the system, at least in part, then you will feel the full brunt of the pain to come. In the first video below, videographer Realist News talks with us about what Denninger's warning means to us.†
That we are here now in America and elsewhere around the world with healthy food in our stomach's every day, we truly are grateful. For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To Him be the glory forever! Amen.
