Caracastan update: Maduro chooses drug trafficking jihadist as vice-president

Never let it be said that Latrine American dictators lack imagination.

Well… (snort)….  at least a certain sort of perverse imagination.

Castro puppet Nicolás Maduro has chosen a rabid Chavista with ties to Muslim jihadists as his new vice president.

As is the case with many in the top inner circle, the new vice president has also been accused of drug trafficking.

Ever the wordsmith, Maduro praised his new number two man by saying that he was the right person to lead the faltering Castro colony with “aggression” and “kung fu.”

No Che for me, I prefer Big Brother

Venezuela Tees Up Its Next Dictator
Maduro elevates Tareck El Aissami in case he loses a recall vote.

Venezuela has become a global symbol of socialist failure, but one thing its government knows how to do is hang on to power. This week the ruling United Socialist Party of Venezuela began maneuvering to survive a recall election this year by appointing a new vice president.

President Nicolás Maduro is likely to lose a recall that the opposition has been demanding amid runaway inflation, shortages of basic goods, widespread hunger and rampant crime. But under the constitution, new vice president Tareck El Aissami, whom Mr. Maduro appointed Wednesday, would serve out the presidential term through 2019. This means the political opposition will now have to decide which tyrant they’d prefer to live under.

The 42-year-old El Aissami is what Donald Trump would call a “bad hombre.” During his university days he belonged to the left-wing student movement Utopia 78 and in 2002 he was elected to congress as a follower of the late demagogue Hugo Chávez. From 2008 to 2012 he was minister of the interior, where he controlled immigration. A June 2014 paper from the Washington-based Center for a Secure Free Society cites allegations by “regional intelligence officials” that Mr. El Aissami’s office provided passports and national ID cards to suspected Islamic terrorists. The Venezuelan government dismissed the reports as U.S. propaganda.

 Most recently Mr. El Aissami has been governor of the state of Aragua. Our Mary Anastasia O’Grady reported in 2014 that Parchin Chemical Industries and Qods Aviation, companies owned by the Iranian military, had joint ventures in Aragua state with the Venezuelan military. Both companies were sanctioned by the United Nations under Security Council Resolution 1747. In May 2015 The Wall Street Journal reported that the U.S. Justice Department was investigating Mr. El Aissami.

  1. Don’t blame the useless and freakish Kerry, merely Obama’s minion, for the fact the recall didn’t happen.. The pope was up to his zucchetto in the “dialogue” charade, despite the stance of the Venezuelan Catholic church, and he essentially legitimized Maduro’s screaming joke of a government. Basically, Jimmy Carter redux, except Carter had the excuse of being very much an alien, and this pope should be extremely familiar with the ways of the Latrine world.
