No Pork! Venezuela’s Maduro Outlines Vast Pork Conspiracy By USA & Portugal That Ruined Christmas

Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro accused Portugal of sabotaging Christmas as a shortage of pork led to anti-government protests spilling onto the streets.

According to Mr Maduro and his socialist government, the Portuguese authorities were pressured into preventing the delivery of two “giant boats” laden with government-subsidized ham, a favoured seasonal meat, due to an international conspiracy led by the United States.

    Why is the US at the center of these elaborate conspiracies, yet we seem unable to remove a toad like Nicolás Maduro directly?
    If we can stop all the pork products from entering Venezuela, then why not just stop Maduro’s heart?
    I mean, if we are really that omnipotent and hyper competent, then that should be a snap!

      I can’t wait to see that toad ripped to pieces by hungry Venezuelans who are tired of his lies.

        Me too, but I fear things will have to get considerably worse.
        He will be safe if he can make it to Cuba before the hammer goes down on their social experiment.

    Its my fault, I had ham for Christmas, I know when they say boat loads they actually meant one ham and I ate it……..

    Why is it I start hearing the Benny Hill theme in my head every time I see this guy’s picture? It started under Hugo Chavez during the great toilet paper shortage.

    • Watchman

      I thought the toilet paper shortage was being managed at the other end by ensuring that there was too little food to require its need?

      • Bla Bla

        No food, no crapping, no toilet paper needed! Solved! Socialism wins again!

        • Watchman

          It’s the Socialist/Communist way!

          • Editor

            You guys are good at this political analysis stuff! I hadn’t thought about this pre-emptive toilet paper strategy.

    If la familia chavez and their mad uro front man hadn’t stolen all hard currency within reach over the years, perhaps there might have been a ham Christmas.

    • Bla Bla

      I wonder if chavez’s spawn still live in the presidential palace.

  • Exile1981

    It’s more likely they couldn’t pay for the boatloads of ham and the Portuguese didn’t trust them enough to send them on credit.

      Aren’t the pork chops broke, too?

    • Frances

      From the report, it sounds as if Venezuela still owes big time for last Christmas’ ham, so the Portuguese declined to ship any more until paid.

    Personally I’d be blaming global warming. Or Harper.

    • Bla Bla

      Nope – white supremacy!

      Hitler Harper is everywhere. Just ask Justin.

    Nick nicked the hams for his flunkies

    • Jaedo Drax

      the hams are still in colombia waiting for a US$40 million payment. He and his cronies won’t get a chance to disappear the hams until that payment is made.

  • Hard Little Machine

    It’s hard to make fun of this lunatic.

  • ontario john

    Isn’t socialism grand! And Maduro’s good friend Naomi Klein wants to bring that success to Canada.

    • Bla Bla

      Socialism of any color should – but isn’t – be declared a crime against humanity… Humans, terminally stupid since the dawn of time.

      • Blacksmith

        It is a wonder we have made it this far……..

  • Bla Bla

    You know, the solution to the pork crisis is to just eat the pig maduro and his elite cronies… They are almost 100% pork!

  • Blacksmith

    You know I just noticed there is plenty of pork on the jowls of that bus driver……
