The government steals medicine donated by the Catholic church

The Humanitarian Channel Today

The crime scene

Remember the “Humanitarian Channel” the government and the opposition had agreed to set up in Vatican-mediated talks? That’s right, the one that was meant to be administered by Caritas, the Catholic Church’s global charity. That one.

How’s that been going?

Well, funny you should ask…

In short, the government’s tax inspectorate, Seniat, openly announces that they’re impounding church-donated medicines at port because they lack requisite customs paperwork. The shipment was declared “legally abandoned” and then “adjudicated” to the government-run Social Security administration.

You’d think that would make for some awkwardness at the next set of talks, right?

Joke’s on you: the government’s not going to talks anymore, sucker!

      • The only thing us Americanos can do is stop this infection from heading north at this point. I so wish there were methods we could send help with, but, as we see from this article, little can be done.

        • Mitchell there are ways to help.
          Total Cargo Express in Doral Florida ships to Venezuela every Friday. Food and other personal items are considered household supplies. They have an office in Caracas and are diligent about getting shipments through customs without loss. There have been some issues but they have had good luck getting shipments into Venezuela without the people at customs stealing the shipments.
          Finding someone in Venezuela that has access to a US bank account is a way to get money to people in Venezuela. I make regular deposits into a Bank of America account and the people give the money to friends in Venezuela.
          If you decide to make shipments to any friends that you have in Venezuela, ask your doctor for antibiotic prescriptions and send the medicines to them. Diabetes medicine is also desperately needed.
          Corn flour, rice, beans. canned meats and fish, powdered milk, protein mixes, and anything else that you can think of will be appreciated.

  1. “You’d think that would make for some awkwardness at the next set of talks, right?”

    Please get with it. Have you observed nothing? The apparatchiks are proud of their theft. They’ll shove this malfeasance (and every other one) down the Vatican’s throat.

  2. And today in Tropical Kreminology… is this a move of the whole government? It is somebody overreaching? Is a move by some faction that just hate the whole idea of being told to sit and pretend to talk and want to look macho? Can they all be so stupid as to spit in the face of somebody that was acting as a “useful idiot” when they may need them in a few days or weeks again? Or just a few?

  3. Please stop saying” we told you so” It’s petty and counter productive and at best should be used only once. We need everyone focused on the task at hand, no scab picking or we will never heal.
