Blackwater mercenaries for hire in Venezuela



The New York Intelligencer is reporting that "A decade ago, the Iraqi government banned Blackwater Security from operating in the country after its mercenary fighters killed 17 civilians in Baghdad’s Nisour Square. That might dissuade some from meddling in conflicts overseas, but Blackwater founder Erik Prince is nothing if not committed to his profit margins."

"On Tuesday, Reuters reported that Prince — who no longer has a professional connection to Blackwater — has a new business plan. He’d like to send mercenary fighters to Venezuela, where they would help depose the country’s sitting president, Nicolás Maduro. Prince met recently with influential supporters of President Trump and “wealthy Venezuelan exiles” to pitch his plan to ship out as many as 5,000 mercenaries to aid opposition leader Juan Guaidó, according to Reuters." He no longer has ties to Blackwater because they changed the name.

The problem with the proposal is that Erik Prince is a sleazebag. One minute he is trying to con us into supporting a modern crusade against Islam. Then, as soon as he gets accused of arms dealing and murdering whistleblowers, he runs off to the United Arab Emirates and creates a mercenary army for the Muslims. I call it mercenary because that is exactly what it is. An army for hire without morals. More recently he's formed a mercenary army for communist China.

Right now the Prince of Darkness is proposing he send in mercenaries to help topple the socialist government in Venezuela. What if they say no? Does that mean he will send mercenaries in to crush the rebellion and support the socialist president? After all, he is supporting Communist China and his army is for hire. How about we just hang the traitor for treason instead?

  1. yes, Erik Prince, Betsey DeVos's brother, the American Cabinet Secretary for education. she just loves charter schools, hates the public school system and it is alleged she is involved in "adoption" agencies. Lovely team, nicely tied to trump.

    If the shadow president would do business with Erik Prince then he does not have the best interests of the country in mind. the current president needs to go, but Prince is not the answer. He is simply creating hit squads for the billionaire class to they can seize more assets in other countries. I'm sure trump will support it. Just wonder how many people will be killed. Its not like people in Venezula are going to take this laying down and some of the other countries may have something to say about Prince's involvement in their contentment. Lets hope if he tries anything, he is met with a lot of return fire. It is the only "language" Prince understands.

    1. Donald Trump should not be doling business with Erik Prince.

    2. Interesting how leftist "Progressive" types always hate schools where the kid's parents have any degree of oversight into their children's education, preferring the "public" unionized system they infiltrated and took over in the last 50 years so they can indoctrinate and socialize our kids rather than educating them in classical liberal (as in Jeffersonian liberal, yeah, that guy, the evil white man....)fashion. Kids are not supposed to think for themselves or question anything "politically correct" and shouldn't be educated to do so.

      As for what Venezualan's will or won't take, do you actually even know any? These folks want out from under the boot heel of Maduro and his Cuban palace guard and his Russian Spetznaz advisors pretty badly, but there's a small problem......the Socialist government took away their right to own firearms....big surprise, who needs guns, your government will protect you.....

      Prince's plot will go nowhere, Trump is not that stupid, whatever his failings may be. This will have to come from the Venezuelan people somehow. The lesson to be learned here is, when you foolishly give up your freedom for "free stuff" and trade your rights for promised security and safety, this is what you're going to get, always, just a matter of the timeline, and now they have to fight for their freedom all over again.

    3. Public schools do me just fine so they do. If Trump does business with Eric Prince then he's no different than Hillary Clinton. History is watching and recording.

    4. Public schools where I am suck, we have a less than 50% graduation rate, and yet they're always saying more $$ will fix the problem. Not.

    5. That's because you're south of the 49. They can't all suck.

    6. No, they don't, but what it comes down to is, people have no choice. If they want to send their kids to a private, or "charter" school, they still have to pay the portion of their property taxes that are earmarked for public schools rather than getting a rebate or voucher for their share, after which they add even more to buy a better quality of education for their kids. If people want to do that, they should be able to. The Teacher's Union's, surprise surprise, doesn't want this.

      As well, the public school systems in large democrat party run cities, like everything else there, sucks. The Chicago Public school system is an out and out nightmare, has been for decades. The average graduate (and again, that's those who DO graduate) tests out at 8-10th grade level comparative to the national average. Some less. When I went to UIC '88-'89, on day 1 of Psych 101 the professor asked for a show of hands, "all those who have been victimized by the Chicago Public School System"....meaning he wanted to know how many in the lecture hall had a (supposed) diploma from CPS.

    7. That's really sad as in pathetic. The public school system in Canada sure works. Sounds like the US needs to take the board out of their own eye before they try and remove the spec from their neighbors.

  2. What? No comment on the latest project veritas video? I guess it doesn't align with your ideals? Google is dirtier than any biker club.

    1. Google's monopoly and censorship should concern everyone as with the Main Stream Media. However, the Hells Angels use of violence to obtain and maintain a monopoly on the drug trade, strippers and sex trade directly affects my community and needs to be dealt with. That is why I focus on it.

  3. The American school system has problems. Some of them start with the text books which are usually what Texas chooses, being the largest buyer of text books in America. Texas chooses text books by committee made up of "citizens" and they aren't educators, etc. What goes into those text books isn't always the greatest information.

    Once de segregation of American schools began, many whites fled to the suburbs and started their own communiites with schools and police departments. No none whites need apply. these then emptied cities of taxpayers. 'then city councils reduced taxes to attract business and in the end because those left in cities were frequently those not paid attention to, the schools simply went down hill. Last winter schools in Detroit, Chicago and other areas had to be closed because there was no heat. In Some schools in Boston, text books are in short supply. If you don't fund public schools you don't get decent public schools. that is the difference between Canada and the U.S.A. Public schools are decently funded and maintained in Canada.

    Some of these new "white" communities are funded by police departments which fine drivers. the drivers most likely to be fined, those who live in predominately black neighbourhoods.
    don't pay the fine, you go to jail and loose your job.

    Now Betsy DeVos heads a corporation which runs charter/private schools. How do you think she became so rich with several yachts, etc.

    As to trump doing business with Prince. His son, Jr. attended a meeting in the Senchelles either last yr or the previous one, along with the crown prince of Saudi and another player who was involved in the Mueller inquiry. He was caught coming into the U.S.A., with a lot of child porn. He's a naturalized AMerican, but came from Russia, if you check the Meuller report, you'll find his name, which escapes me right now.

    1. Privatizing schools, hospitals, prisons, hydro and military is never a good thing. Sleazebags take over who are mandated to make a profit and those public services always suffer as a result.

      However, both Hillary and Trump cults are heading down the same road when they support private military in Venezuela. The CIA destabilized Venezuela to take over their nationalized oil just like they did in Mexico.

    2. e.a.f Wow the race card....you are badly misinformed....yet I think you are happy with the "information" as it fits your narrative....:rolleyes: And there is no such thing as people going to jail for not paying a traffic ticket. AYFKM. The stories you tell....

      If you knew as much about the Prince family as you pretend to, you'd know their family was already rich, the Prince siblings father owned the largest factory/supplier of US made non-OEM auto parts in America (most others are somewhere in Asia these days) a business which he started and built up himself. Betsy Devos has never needed anyone else's money.

      You are unclear as to who's son you are talking about....neither Prince or Trump's son was born in Russia. Nor was the Crown Prince of "The Magic Kingdom".

    3. Nobody is suggesting privatizing public schools....

      But yeah, privatizing public entities,= bad thing, the corporate communists are always lurking....

    4. Like I said, American politics is cult like. I don't like Trump but they elected him. Why did they elect him? Because Hillary is an arms dealer tied to Operation Fast and Furious. We really need to move past this. All this absurdity of Russian interference in the election and the Mueller investigation is absolutely bizarre. It defies reason. Erik Prince however, is clearly a scumbag.

  4. You are not going to find me defending Erik Prince, unless people like e.a.f. are flat out lying and slandering him or his family. As Sonny Barger once said, "Why do they have to lie so much when the truth is bad enough?"

    As an American citizen, Erik Prince needs State Department approval to provide consulting services of a military or security nature to any foreign entity. Period. And they have jammed people for doing so without it. His activities are far from low profile so we must assume they are aware of it, yet they seem to be taking no action against him. The most likely explanation for this is that he is a CIA asset.

    1. That's the problem. The Prince of Darkness wants to do publicly what the CIA have been doing in Venezuela all along. There is merit to EAF's racial concerns in the US. I certainly saw it in back in the /80's when I was working in South Seattle. There was no equal protection of the law.

  5. yes, trailrunner 78, the race card. Its not a card though, it the truth, race plays an enormous role in the U.S.A. just as it does in Canada. its hard to avoid when you have a million incarcerated African Americans. if you don't think police don't use traffic tickets to pay for their cities, check out some of the articles regarding Ferguson, Missouri.

    The history of the U.S.A. is the history of racism. I'm not saying Canada is racism free, we need look no further than the Missing and murdered women's inquiry which has determined what happened in Canada was genocide. But then the treatment of First nations in the U.S.A. is also a form of genocide.

    Yes, the Prince family was rich to begin with but the off spring have contributed mightly to the fortune and not in a positive manner. They're a prime e.g. of how the rich get richer and the poor get poorer.

    What Black Water did, is a fact. Still Prince wants more and to do "more" and not to the betterment of society anywhere, just to his wallet. There is such thing as ethical investments and ethical ways of making money. The Princes, though in my opinion, don't do that.

    1. The MMIWG genocide claim was ridiculous. It was made by a whack job more concerned with promoting two-spirit, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex and asexual people then with the truth. Racism does exist and needs to be addressed. However, the political extremism within the MMIWG once again helped cover up the Hells Angels drug related exploitation and violence.

  6. "Some" merit is not the same as being decades out of date, and the picture she paints is just that. I lived in Chicago first in 1981 and later for 12 years '83-'96 and the "white flight" there and elsewhere in America dates from the 1960's. It's typical of someone who knows only what they've read but has no personal context. As well, she is selective about the history she quotes. She should be pointing out that the white flight of the 60's was a response to the mass migration of blacks from the south to large urban area's of the north at that time. There has been no equivalent populational flow of black Americans since then, they are established pretty much everywhere now, in area's that those living in the past who only get their information second hand would never imagine.

    1. It is also well within the realm of believability that although Betsy DeVos was rich before she was given the position, she got richer by privatizing schools.
