Criminal Justice International Associates (CJIA), a risk assessment and global analysis firm in Miami, estimated in a recent report that the Chávez Frías family in Venezuela has “amassed a fortune” similar to that of the Castro brothers in Cuba.According to Jerry Brewer, president of CJIA, “the personal fortune of the Castro brothers has been estimated at a combined value of around $2 billion.”“The Chávez Frías family in Venezuela has amassed a fortune of a similar scale since the arrival of Chávez to the presidency in 1999,” said Brewer in an analysis published in their website.Brewer said that Cuba is receiving about $5 billion per year from the Venezuelan treasury and in oil shipments and other resources.“We believe that organized bolivarian criminal groups within the Chávez administration have subtracted around $100 billion out of the nearly $1 trillion in oil income made by PDVSA since 1999.
And, of course, Salvador Allende of Chile only managed to send 24,000,000 USD to his private accounts in Spain, and to buy an old mansion on the Caribbean side of the eastern sections of Cuba in the short time that he had to sack to Chilean treasury. Like Saddam Hussein, Yassir Arafat, Peron, Luis Echeverria, Lopez Portillo and every other leftist piece of leftover athlete's foot fungus in the universe.
The more that people posture as heroes and defenders of the poor, the more it should be taken for granted that boatloads of shekels are headed to Switzerland, Spain, France, Brussels, and other convenient places. Chavez went to Cuba for treatment because he feared assassination among the medical workers in Venezuela. Pitiful. The world is briefly better. Let us hope that those low-intellectual power and low-information citizens of Venezuela ....at least enough to forge a new and reasonable majority....can arrive at some sort of epiphany or another....some road to Damascus moment....but that is for Providence to sort out.
