Bridgestone Leaves Venezuela

Bridgestone is a tire maker that has had a history for 60 years in Venezuela. Due to the recent downfall with the economy in the state, the company has decided to leave. According to aserne.com, the tire company is selling out to Grupo Corimon. This is a local industrialist in Venezuela. There are hopes that the new company can offer jobs to those who live in the state, but with the controls on the currency and the issues that the state has with energy, there isn’t a lot of hope that new businesses can survive for long periods of time. When companies that have been in a state or country for decades are leaving because of the economy, then it should say something to the government leaders that things might not be going in the right direction. Officials like Jose Manuel should take a step back and offer incentives for businesses instead of controlling so much that they pull out of the state, further harming the economy.

In the recent past, James O’Keefe made an effort to infiltrate one of the groups funded by George Soros. In an audio, James is heard saying that he is Victor Kesh. In addition, he leaves a message and tells an unidentified person that he has plans of infiltrating the group since he does not disconnect the line.

James is heard in a voicemail saying that Kesh is Hungarian-American, and he would like to join in the fight for European values. The voicemail was sent to Dana Geraghty. Kesh leaves his number but before hanging up, he asks that the line remain open. In the next 10 minutes, James elaborates about his plan concerning the group. According to Geraghty, James is heard talking about using Dana’s LinkedIn page to get to George Soros. In her analysis, Dana asserts that the people that James was talking to may not be accustomed to technological matters.

On assessing the voicemail, the president of the foundation, Chris Stone, ridiculed their efforts to swindle Geraghty. Stone added that these people would not match watergate burglars. He asserted that the scammers did not even know how to use internet browser or engage in undercover operations. In his concluding remarks, Stone contends that James and his team have dirty-trick operations against George Soros and the Open Society Foundation.

Opposition party moves to oust Maduro

While Venezuela struggles with its economic crisis brought on by crumbling oil prices, the political battle to oust president Nicolas Maduro continues. The opposition party was dealt a blow last week when the supreme court said it could not shorten his term in office by changing the length of his term, a Reuters story said.
This is the latest skirmish between the right wing opposition party and the socialist leader Maduro, who is a former assistant of Hugo Chavez, and the one chosen by Chavez to replace himself.

Maduro was elected to a six year term in 2013, and the constitution allows a recall vote at the half-way point of the term, which is 2016. The leader of the opposition party – who lost to Maduro in the general election – has said he wants the recall vote to happen this year.

If the vote happens this year, and if Maduro loses that vote, a new presidential election would be held almost immediately, which according to Norka Luque would benefit the opposition party. If the referendum is held in 2017, and if Maduro were ousted that way, the vice president would continue the term. That would leave the socialists in power and would defeat their purpose in getting rid of Maduro, the opposition leader said.

Norka also added that the opposition party must gather 4 million signatures to have a referendum. it has started the process but has faced problems getting government agencies responsible to cooperate.
