Allen West: Draining the swamp, Latin American style 

Now here is an interesting look at draining the swamp: draining it South American style. The first thought would be that those South American governments have been notorious for their corruption and abuses of power. What is going on down there that we need to take a closer look at? You could sum it up as holding people accountable through the justice system for their misdeeds. That has not been the case here lately with the alt-left in charge of the justice system. Read the details here.

There’s a very interesting development I’ve been reading about and wanted to share with y’all. President Trump made it one of his campaign themes to “drain the swamp,” which he has now termed “the sewer.” And having been in Washington D.C., I can certainly concur with that goal. But what can be done about it? Well, sad to say, there’s something we can learn from Latin America.

Of course, right now the big news in Latin America is the socialist collapse in Venezuela. Hmm, if you’re tuning into the liberal progressive media, that may not be clear to you. According to ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, CNN and PBS, President Trump’s ban of those suffering from the mental condition of gender dysphoria, along with our withdrawal from the Paris Climate Accord, are harbingers of the coming end of the world. Regardless, let’s take a look at how folks down in Latin America are dealing with some high level individuals and their corruption:

– July 12th: Brazil’s former president, Luiz Inacio Lula de Silva, was sentenced to ten years in prison for taking kickbacks.

– July 13th: Former Peruvian president Ollanta Humala surrendered at a Lima courthouse and is under 18 months of preventative detention resulting from a money laundering probe involving him and his wife. Even his predecessor, Alejandro Toledo, is the target of an arrest warrant and faces bribery charges.

– Brazil’s president, Michel Temer, is facing corruption charges.

– The legislative body of Argentina is considering anti-graft measures as the result of the scandal surrounding its former president, Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, who is facing a trial on fraud and money laundering charges.

– In Panama, ex-president Ricardo Martinelli has been sitting in a U.S. jail since June awaiting extradition on charges he tapped phones and monitored conversations using a surveillance system funded by public funds.

Yes, sure, we know corruption has long since been a prevalent factor in Latin American politics, but could something be changing? I mean, let’s be honest: There’s a reason why the liberal progressive media and progressive socialists in America are not talking about what’s happening in Venezuela — what they once hailed as a great socialist endeavor. Funny, they ain’t talking about folks rising up against the despotism of Nicolas Maduro, a former bus driver. Yes, a freaking bus driver. Then again, we elected and re-elected a doggone community organizer as president. And the Rolling Stone is asking, on their cover, why this fella Justin Trudeau can’t be our president?

Speaking of corruption, you know what the leftist media isn’t talking about: the arrest of Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s IT specialist. And yes, he was arrested seeking to flee the country, as his wife already did. And Wasserman Schultz has been uncooperative and threatening to cover for and protect this Pakistani individual who has incredible access to classified material. Wasserman Schultz should, at a minimum, be arrested for obstruction of an investigation. But, to the Left, nothing to see here.

These Latin American nations are dealing with financial corruption. Why didn’t anyone challenge President Barack Obama on his money laundering scheme, sending laundered American cash — billions that had been converted to Swiss francs and loaded on pallets, then sent to Iran on an unmarked aircraft? If these nations can go after former presidents, why can’t we? Selling favors while secretary of state — like the uranium deal to Russia — that’s no problem; you can even be a Democrat Party presidential nominee. The media sees no corruption there.

Why has no one brought charges against, or at least started an investigation of, former Attorney General Eric Holder and the “Fast and Furious” scheme which resulted in the death of U.S. Border Patrol Agent, Brian Terry?

Something tells me that, in this current environment, Latin American countries would not take it too kindly if a president, secretary of state and national security advisor abandoned their countrymen to die … and then lied about it. Yet, that’s exactly what happened here in……
