Editor’ Note: The initial report about this incident was printed in error. While the videos and images below were believed to be recently recorded, several readers contacted us to report that these incidents occurred in February 2014 and notFebruary 2016. 

We have modified portions of this article but have left the majority of this report intact. In terms of possible responses and consequences of economic collapse in the United States, Europe and elsewhere, the events in Venezuela could happen anywhere when governments lose control of the populace.


Venezuela is in complete chaos as a result of their economic collapse.

And as a result, state-rationed food and groceries have run out, prices are hyper-inflated and millions of people are waiting in huge lines for any goods that are available. Black markets have gone boom, with neighbors making necessities available to other neighbors, but they must avoid crackdown from a jealous State that is desperate to hang onto power.

The free-fall of oil prices on the global stage has snapped the South American socialist nation into sudden and harsh disaster. Venezuela has slightly more oil than Saudi Arabia, and trades the second largest volume, after OPEC, and was even more vulnerable than Russia to the economic warfare that has taken place in the last few years.

Things are very bad now, and they were already falling apart. Nicolas Maduro took over after Hugo Chavez’ death in 2013, but without the force of Chavez’ cult of personality, he has been unable to hold an already unrealistic economy together any longer – and the people are on the verge of complete revolt.

*Editor’s Note: The following reports were taken in 2014 but are as relevant to the conversation today as they were then*

This is what happened to dissenters and so-called agitators in collapsing Venezuela… Could the same be coming to America?

With state control of the media in Venezuela, and an unwillingness to report on the part of the international press, it is difficult to know all the facts. Indeed these developments have gone virtually unreported, but some of it has surfaced on YouTube.

The Caracas Chronicles is one of the rare sources to report what is really happening:

What we saw were not “street clashes”, what we saw is a state-hatched offensive to suppress and terrorize its opponents.


Throughout last night, panicked people told their stories of state-sponsored paramilitaries on motorcycles roaming middle class neighborhoods, shooting at people and  storming into apartment buildings, shooting at anyone who seemed like he might be protesting.

People continue to be arrested merely for protesting, and a long established local Human Rights NGO makes an urgent plea for an investigation into widespread reports of torture of detainees. There are now dozens of serious human right abuses: National Guardsmen shooting tear gas canisters directly into residential buildings. We have videos of soldiers shooting civilians on the street.

And that’s just what came out in real time, over Twitter and YouTube, before any real investigation is carried out. Online media is next, a city of 645,000 inhabitants has been taken off the internet amid mounting repression, and this blog itself has been the object of a Facebook “block” campaign.

The crack down on the population of Venezuela is truly massive and very chaotic, as much of the footage shows.

Raw footage on YouTube (warning: some footage is graphic):

This video purportedly shows pro-government militia squads firing tear gas into residential apartment buildings:

Is this how things will go down in the United States in the aftermath of the planned collapse of the economy and the destruction of the American standards of living?

Though Venezuela seems world’s apart from the events in the United States, this same level of unrest can grow quickly along the lines of division that have been sharpening under President Obama’s two terms and the false “recovery” imposed by bankers intent on bringing everyone to their knees.

For now, the biggest difference is that Americans still have their guns, and the militia are still of, by and for the people.

Stay prepared, and stay vigilant!


  1. There is no justice in this world anymore. The Venezuelan people suffered long enough. The world is ruled by psychopaths. It is scientifically proven that 1 in 10 people is a psychopath or sociopath. Well…….do the math.   This means that 90% of the world population is ruled by 10% lunatics. It is time to resist. Only a lunatic wants to control an other human being. Psychopaths and Sociopaths should be locked up and been castrated so they can not reproduce anymore.

    I feel the pain for the people in Venezuela. Where are the UN? They do fuck all. It is all a Kabuki theater. The world of politics is a world  of deception. I will pray for Venezuela.

    • Silverlover—You want to castrate people for being what you judge to be  “psychopaths and sociopaths”. Then to top it off  you  say you are praying for the people of Venezuela. If you want to see a true psychopath—look in the mirror. Venezuela is just another example of what happens when government tries to give their citizens free stuff. It works until everything blows up. Fortunate for you—you’re a silver lover. Now there we have something in common.

  2. Yawn.

    We’ve got the same thing here in this Country.  Law Enforcement proving that all the rest are second class citizens and gunning down those that disagree.  Enter False-Flag shootings and outright lies on TV’s it’s just a different angle of the same thing. At least in Venezuela you know who the boss is. In this country it’s all a huge lie where no one dares to point out that the ‘Emperor’ is wearing no clothes.

    Now back to today’s big game… Super Tuesday!…with final scores aired later tonight!

    P.S. – My candidate is better than your candidate!

  3. Of all the preppers in America. Id wager over half of them were born on or before the 80’s. And as such, likely 2/3 of them are supportive, merciful, and neighborly, without cowardice!

    I would help the helpless within my ability, because thats what Jesus would want. But being fallable, I would take up the sword against any my way comes…. In defence of freedom of my family and country. Born in the 70’s, raised in the 80’s, my generation are funny, christian, and rockers all in one!

    Iron Maiden, rebels! Metal Health baby!

    God- Country – Family, because without the first two the last will endure long suffering. Stazi Coup Storm Troopers know better than to kick in American Homes!

    My custom sks, magazine swaps with the bolt closed! (Was a huge liability before)


    • In my book, SKS’s were about 100 bucks a piece years ago and were acquired as “disposable” tools. Since they were accurate and reliable at any range raw and out of the box, they made good “trunk guns”. Always there in a pinch – – but if the SHTF and you fall into a checkpoint confiscation scenario: “Oh please don’t take my only gun.” The only thing we ever did to them was spray black undercoating on the stock, load ’em up and tuck ’em away!  But your choice to make it into a poorman’s sniper system will work just as well…since there’s no such thing as a bad SKS!

    • Nah, its a 200 yard rifle. Scopes good for pin point shots, site works good, but it dumps bullets! You should see it with the drum! Firegrip and bipod help out there! Its lighter and more portable with the strikeforce stock

    • Thats the womans KIA LOL! I sold my 4×4 for a chevy equinox when we had a baby. Then, after suffering without a truck for thre years I couldnt take it anymore! Last year I got back into a man truck! Dodge 2500 quad cab. The attachment says my image is too large to upload.????

    • Like canada. All the politicians take credit when there’s a boom but insist that when the bust comes, nobody coulda seen it coming! Not their fault!
