Something tells me China feels they can go back to their old games with weakness moving back into the White House.


Venezuela Resumes Direct Oil Shipments To China​

By Irina Slav - Nov 27, 2020, 9:30 AM CST
Venezuela has restarted direct shipments of crude oil to China despite U.S. sanctions, Reuters has reported, citing shipping data and documents from PDVSA.

Until now, Venezuela’s oil company sold oil to China via ship-to-ship transfers at sea, similar to sanction buddy Iran. Now, according to Reuters’ data, tankers loaded with Venezuelan crude are sailing straight to China.
TankerTrackers.com identified the first tanker that left Venezuela en route to China in August this year. Now, there is at least one more unloading crude at a Chinese port and two more, owned by PetroChina, that loaded crude in Venezuela earlier this month, according to PDVSA documents.

China is the biggest buyer of Venezuelan crude as it is of Iranian crude, despite U.S. sanctions aimed at stifling the two countries’ oil revenues. As a result of the sanctions, Venezuela’s production and exports have suffered gravely, with last month’s average in exports falling to 359,000 bpd. The drop followed the expiry of a grace period Washington had given to commodity traders to wind down their oil-for-fuel swap business with Venezuela, which was allowed for humanitarian reasons.

Yet the figure may not accurately reflect Venezuela’s total exports because of the ship-to-ship transfers the country has resorted to in order to get its crude abroad in spite of sanctions. The latest news from Reuters and TankerTrackers.com suggests Venezuela may be exporting more than what the official figures suggest.

After AOC Calls for Boycott of Pro-Trump GOYA, Sales Skyrocket and CEO Names Her 'Employee of the Month'

BY AILA SLISCO ON 12/07/20

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) was named Goya's "employee of the month" for allegedly driving up business with her criticism, according to the company's CEO.

Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue made the remarks during an interview on a radio show hosted by conservative Michael Berry on Monday. Ocasio-Cortez supported a Goya boycott while calling out Unanue for his public support of President Donald Trump over the summer. Unanue insisted she had gone "against her own people" by denouncing the company while claiming her statements led to a massive spike in sales.

"It's interesting that AOC was one of the first people to step in line to boycott Goya. To go against her own people, as supposedly a Puerto Rican woman, to go against people of her own Latin culture," Unanue said. "To some extent I can understand AOC. She's young, she's naïve, she doesn't get it. But you've got someone like [Senator Bernie] Sanders, who's older than us ... other than me, who still doesn't get it."

Goya's sales actually increased by 1000% percent. Nothing says "F*ck You" like naming someone who hates you as "Employee of the Month". :ROFLMAO:

AOC calls Amazon jobs a 'scam' because more than 4,000 of its employees are on food stamps


She is not taking into account of the 10's of thousand's employed by the corporations that pay tax's in all forms including paying her salary. Does she realize for every extra dollar she wants to tax corporations she would lose Two in the reduction of employees and spin off businesses they support.

Of course not. As far as she's concerned, it's not relevant. Her minor in University was in economics which, I'm sure she must have flunked. She's an arrogant & disingenuous socialist who doesn't give a damn about Americans, only her agenda. It's unbelievable that she & the rest of the swamp were re-elected. Obviously, her constituents aren't doing their homework or don't understand what her (their) agenda means to the average American.
