Venezuela’s woes are mounting as it turns the lights off

“Venezuela is in the final throes of a downward social and economic spiral borne out of a legacy of terribly misguided policymaking,” economist Michael Henderson said in a note to CNBC. “The announcement of a two-day working week for public sector employees lays bare just how ill-equipped the economy is to deal with temporary supply shocks.”

Venezuela’s economic problems hit a new peak this week as rolling blackouts and a two-day working week were introduced to alleviate an energy crisis.

Venezuela’s government announced earlier in the week that it was cutting public sector employees’ working hours down to two days a week for at least two weeks in order to reduce electricity consumption.

The country’s president, Nicolas Maduro, had already decided Venezuela’s 2.8 million state workers would have Fridays off through April and May. Daily four-hour power cuts around the country were also planned to further save energy.

The plans are a response to a drought that has left the country’s largest hydroelectric dam near its minimum operating level. But according to Michael Henderson, lead economist at risk consultancy Verisk Maplecroft, the plans indicate just how poorly the country is doing as a whole.

Anti-Mass Migration Campaigners Stage Protest On Roof Of World Famous Imperial Theatre (Video)

Two Identitarians scaled the famous Burgtheater in Vienna to hang a banner protesting the performance of a pro-migrant play, and Breitbart London has the first sneak-peek at the incredible footage they recorded from the stunt.

Two activists of the ‘hipster right-wing’ Identitarian movement in Austria made a daring protest against the national theatre in Vienna. The Burgtheater had put on a production of the controversial pro-migrant play “Die Schutzbefohlenen” on Wednesday night.

The Identitarians had previously interrupted a performance of the play being performed at the University of Vienna where they stormed the stage and called the play goers hypocrites who they say celebrate the migrant crisis.

In the voice-over for the new English-language film, Austrian Identitarian leader Martin Sellner explains: “After our protest against the refugees-welcome play at our university the leftist president of the national assembly, Mrs Bures, invited them into the famous Burg-theater, to repeat it under her ‘honorary protection’.

“A few days later a 21 year old Student was brutally raped by 3 refugees in Vienna. You Hypocrites!”

India Activates Miles of ‘Laser Walls’ Along Border with Pakistan

Given the impossibility of active human surveillance along its lengthy border, India has installed a dozen “laser walls” along its border with Pakistan, which will set off a loud siren if breached.

The immediate catalyst behind India’s decision was the Pathankot terror attack this past January, when a band of heavily armed United Jihad terrorists allegedly crossed over the border from Pakistan to storm India’s Pathankot Air Force Station, killing seven soldiers and wounding 20 more.

In coming months, India intends to install 45 such laser walls along the international border in Punjab and Jammu, especially in areas where traditional barbed wire fences would be impractical.

Eight of the infra-red and laser beam intrusion detection systems are already “up and working,” and four more will be operational in the next few days, according to a senior official of India’s Border Security Force (BSF).

“The laser walls have started working and their functioning is being monitored. Preliminary results in detecting illegal movements are encouraging,” the official said, adding that agents were using a satellite-based signal command system to monitor the sensors, which are armed with night and fog operability tools.

India had already begun investigating the feasibility of installing laser walls two years ago as a means of keeping more effective surveillance against intruders and terrorists who might exploit out-of-the-way border areas to cross into the country.

7 Most Important Declarations in Trump’s ‘America-First’ Foreign Policy Speech

On Wednesday, Donald Trump delivered a remarkably nationalist, pro-Western foreign policy speech titled “America-First” in which the presidential candidate set out his defense and foreign policy goals.

Here are the seven most important declarations in his speech, enumerated in no particular order.

1 –Trump declared he “will always put the interests of the American people and American security above all else.”

It has to be first. Has to be. That will be the foundation of every single decision that I will make. America First will be the major and overriding theme of my administration.

2 – Trump made clear that Western civilization is at war with radical Islam as opposed to the dangerously obtuse “violent extremism” rhetoric that President Obama has deployed, largely ignoring the Islamic extremist motivations of our enemies.

Our actions in Iraq, Libya, and Syria have helped unleash ISIS, and we’re in a war against radical Islam, but President Obama won’t even name the enemy, and unless you name the enemy, you will never ever solve the problem. …

Hillary Clinton also refuses to say the words radical Islam, even as she pushes for a massive increase in refugees coming into our country.

Massive Cartel Human Smuggling Ring Busted in Texas

A 2-year investigation has resulted in the indictments of 29 people and 86 criminal charges relating to a cartel connected-human smuggling operation in South Texas.

The investigation which began in Atascosa County, Texas, tied in a suspected human smuggling operation that stretched from the border to as far as San Antonio and Houston. Atascosa County, located around the town of Pleasanton about 40 miles south of San Antonio, became the focal point of the investigation as authorities uncovered a stash house where up to 250 illegal immigrants per month were being smuggled, information provided to Breitbart Texas by Atascosa County District Attorney Gene Peña revealed.

“What we have today is the result of a two-year investigation that has now resulted in the indictments of 29 individuals,” Peña told Breitbart Texas in a telephone interview on Friday. “Eighty-six charges have been filed against these people. Additionally, during the arrest process four additional people have been arrested and charged with participating in an organized criminal activity.”

Peña said they are still holding some information close as there are some suspects still at large. “We hope to catch them quickly,” he explained. “The scope of our investigation was in Atascosa County and our neighboring Wilson County. The smuggling lines stretched as far as Harris and Bexar Counties.”

NY Yankees Pres. Randy Levine: ‘End of the Republican Party’ If Trump Not Nominated (Video)

“[They think] for some reason you go to a convention and the delegates … can somehow forget all the people who went to the polls and voted in good faith in order to show their preference…. That’s not the way it should be. It should be won in sports on the field and it should be won at the ballot box.”

Randy Levine knows a thing or two about fair play — and the president of the New York Yankees baseball club tells Newsmax TV it will be three strikes and out for the Republican Party if it attempts to stop Donald Trump from becoming the GOP presidential nominee.

“I think if that happens it would really be the end of the Republican Party. You would have so many disenfranchised and disaffected voters out there that it would just be very, very hard to put it all back together,” Levine said Thursday on “The Steve Malzberg Show.”

“He by far has the most delegates, yet there are some people in the party, people who I know, good people, who think that he shouldn’t get the nomination.
