It seems that the Biden Administration is maybe just a little bit hypocritical? While the White House condemns the Russian President Vladimir Putin’s move into Ukraine, and the media paints him as “worse than Hitler,” the Biden administration is getting cozy with Venezuela.
If you hadn’t been paying attention over the past few years, Venezuela – which used to be the wealthiest country in South America – has had its vast wealth squandered by their Marxist leaders, first in Hugo Chavez and then Maduro.
It got so chaotic in Venezuela, the citizens were forced to eat their pets and whatever else they could trap, like rats.
It looks like Biden might want to bring that to America.
Instead of allowing more drilling projects, pipelines and production in the United States – something Trump was able to do – the Biden Administration would rather give American tax dollars to Venezuela to purchase oil from Marxists.
Biden has already been caught out giving billions of dollars, alongside his then boss Obama, to another despotic regime, Iran.
One could easily point out the hypocrisy of such acts by the Biden administration, they condemn Putin’s behavior with one hand, then take from “leaders” who literally starve their populations, with the other.
This past weekend, Biden sent a delegation to Venezuela to work out a deal – one that is highly unnecessary since America has more than enough capacity to become completely energy independent.
Senior U.S. officials on Saturday went to Venezuela, a Russian ally, to meet with the government of Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro, people familiar with the matter told The New York Times.
A delegation including senior State Department and White House officials is traveling to the Venezuelan capital of Caracas, sources told the Times.
It is not known how long the officials will stay in Venezuela or who they will be meeting with.
This comes as Venezuela and fellow Latin American Russia allies Nicaragua and Cuba this week abstained or did not vote on United Nations resolutions condemning Russian aggression, according to the Times, indicating that the countries may be distancing themselves from Russia’s ongoing invasion of Ukraine.
Maduro has also signaled that he would be open to restarting Venezuela’s oil trade with the U.S. as President Biden mulls reducing U.S. imports of Russian oil.
“Here lies the oil of Venezuela, which is available for whomever wants to produce and buy it, be it an investor from Asia, Europe or the United States,” Maduro said Thursday, according to the Times.
This will be the most high-level meeting between the U.S. and Venezuela in Venezuela’s capital city in years, the Times noted.
Venezuela and the U.S. severed all diplomatic relations in 2019 following the Trump administration’s recognition of opposition leader Juan Guaidó as Venezuela’s interim president after Maduro secured a second term in an election deemed illegitimate by most of the international community.
Maybe the friendship comes from a common place of understanding – both Maduro and Biden are illegitimate Presidents.
Elections have consequences and illegitimate ones, as we have seen with Venezuela – can be disastrous.
