Bloodless Coup in Venezuela

First, take over private industry and property to make things more “fair.” Second, strip away individual rights. Third, starve the people. Fourth, consolidate power. The formula works.

(CNN)In a surprising move the Venezuelan opposition is calling a coup, the Venezuelan Supreme Court has stripped the country’s National Assembly of its powers. The court ruled that all powers vested under the legislative body will be transferred to the Supreme Court, which is stacked with government loyalists.

The ruling effectively means the three branches of the Venezuelan government will be controlled by the ruling United Socialist Party. The opposition has been taken out of the picture.

    Kind of reminds me of U.S. District Judge Derrick Watson and his illegal overreach to stop Trump’s travel ban or California’s Chief Supreme Court Justice, Tani G. Cantil-Sakauye deciding to not enforce federal laws because she does approve of illegal aliens being deported.  Gee, I could write pages and pages of this stuff.  Welcome to Venezuela Northe.
