Trump Admin Sanctions China Firm for Venezuelan Dealings

White House Photographer Pete Souza

The United States Treasury Department has sanctioned a Chinese defense firm over the firm’s dealings with Venezuela.

According to The Washington Free Beacon:

China National Electronics Import & Export Corporation (CEIEC) allegedly sold hardware that allowed Venezuelan strongman Nicolás Maduro to conduct digital surveillance and other cyber maneuvers against political opponents. The Chinese company began offering services to Venezuela in 2017, providing much of its products and support to state-run telecommunications giant Venezuelan National Telephone Company, which controls 70 percent of the country’s internet services.

The company also oversaw a billion-dollar surveillance initiative in Venezuela, installing 30,000 cameras in the country, according to an Air Force academic paper.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin outlined how the transactions bolster the regime in Caracas.

“The illegitimate Maduro regime’s reliance on entities like CEIEC to advance its authoritarian agenda further illustrates the regime’s prioritization of power over democratic values and processes,” Mnuchin said in a statement. “The United States will not hesitate to target anyone helping to suppress the democratic will of the Venezuelan people and others around the world.”

The Maduro regime called this an attempt to interfere with Venezuelan politics on the eve of the country’s elections.

Rape, Pillage, Plunder; America, You’ve Been Had!

Special Note 1: Enough! This time vets, soldiers, and cops are coming to truly serve and protect the American people; and those who only want to rule them are leaving, or else!

Special Note 2: Mr. President, special thanks to you from many soldiers, cops, and veterans. Sir, you are just as much a combat vet as any of us old soldiers. You sir are the first true ‘Battle Captain’ to serve all of the American Profession of Arms as our Commander-in-Chief since Andrew Jackson. Sir, I am ready to stand a post!
Special Note 3: Thanks first to all of those brave folks like Melissa Capone who have come forward to tell us what they saw/heard/etc.. and thanks to Rush Limbaugh, Rudy Giuliani, Sidney Powell, Jenna Ellis, Lin Wood, Barrack Obama, Joe Biden, the whole Democrat/RINO gang, and most of the American main stream/social media. Want to thank each of you for the various roles you have played in pulling the covers back on the real state of American government at every level and reinforcing what I have been trying to tell Americans for over 30 years. **Joe, one final thought if you please? Never thought I would say this, but you have proven that crime pays! Remember that drug case in 1977 when we caught you, little Jimmy Carter, Billy Clinton, and so many others up to your necks in that drug/money laundering case? Joe, why don’t you impress the folks? Explain to them the concept of ‘Green Lining’ as it applies to the ‘Ex-official International Drug Trade’.
Discussion:
In light of all the activities/actions of the left, the establishment, the globalists, the progressives, etc., have done/are doing to reverse all that D.J. Trump has accomplished in less than four years can you guess which of the lessons learned (see below) were first presented to the public in 1989 (after serving 26 years as a soldier and in my third year as an American community’s police chief) and which have been drafted since Donald Trump became President?
A Soldier/Cop’s Lessons Learned(LL):
* Soldiers (at least ground combat soldiers that is) do not fight first and foremost for their country, the flag, motherhood, the girl back home, nor apple pie (Note: In all the years since WWII military personnel have been committed in only two military overseas operations with the primary objectives being to protect the American people). Before all else, soldiers engaged in ground combat fight for their fellow soldiers and their unit.
* Commencing with the onset of WWII the primary force/interest driving all (save two, see LL above) military strategies/tactics/procurements/policies have been those of the so-called military/industrial complex.
* The Seven C’s of Leadership according to a survey of 1646 Vietnam era ground combat veterans listed of the order of their importance are; Candor, Competence, Consistency, Commitment, Courage, Compassion, and Courtesy. The reason the soldiers in the survey chose the word “candor” is because candor encompasses both omission and co-mission. To a combat soldier lack of absolute candor, be it co-mission or omission, are equal sins! In short, soldiers expect/demand absolute candor from their leaders before all else. Note: I have observed during my career in government service that democrats are masters of co-mission while republicans are masters of omission!
* The American people are the most effectively lied to people in modern times thanks primarily to the American political class, the American bureaucracy, the American media, and American academia.
* Arrogance coupled with ignorance equals stupidity.
* The greatest threats to the American people are the corrupt and/or incompetent politicians/bureaucrats/academicians found at every level of government/academia, and the majority of the American so-called media.
* Most of the politicians/bureaucrats/academicians I have encountered during my years as a soldier/cop I most kindly refer to as; self-serving, witless, cowards.
* The American Profession of Arms and our brothers/sisters in blue have failed to protect the American people from all of their enemies, both foreign and most especially domestic.
* There are only two primary requirements to be a career soldier and/or cop in America. One must be smart enough to do the work and dumb enough to take the job.
* American soldiers and police officers must in addition to mastering all of their professionally mandated tasks, learn to accomplish the same with at least one arm tied behind their backs and their vision impaired 50% or more.
* After carefully watching the whole of the political class since 1960 (the year I joined the U.S. Army), I can say without reservation that most of the group will sell their souls and our bodies just to remain in power.
* Want to see what the United States of America will look like if the left takes control of the government? Take your pick, New York City, Baltimore, Chicago, Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, or the complete packages; California, New York, Illinois, and/or most anywhere democrats are in charge.
* If the so-called ‘progressive movement’ continues unchecked a number of able veterans/soldiers/cops are going to be presented with a challenge/decision. “Are the American people worth another drop of our sweat, much less our blood?”
Closing:

The truth is that none of the lessons learned presented above were penned after D.J. Trump arrived on the American political stage. However, several were modified/updated in light of recent events/activities. In closing, I must admit that several lessons learned were dropped from the 1989 submission in that my oath of office as both a soldier and a cop charged me to serve and protect my fellow Americans, not to aggravate and/or scare the hell out of them!
Soldier/Cop/Grunt,
