Stockpiling Of Food Banned In Venezuela, Fingerprint Scanners Appear In Stores

Venezuela Market

News reports indicate that Venezuela is starting to install fingerprint scanners in supermarkets as a way of preventing ‘food hoarding’. Venezuela is experiencing widespread shortages of most foodstuffs including the most basic such as bread, flour and grains as well as an acute shortage of medicines.

Unable to buy imported food due to a plummeting currency and falling oil prices resulting in a lack of revenue, Venezuelans are becoming increasingly desperate.

President Maduro has accused Colombian food smugglers of buying up massive amounts of staples to sell back to people at vastly marked up prices.

The scanners that are being installed in stores are to prevent people buying more than their allotted quota as the implementation of rationing begins.

In a statement President Maduro said:

“We will establish 20,000 fingerprint readers throughout the socialist system to guarantee the people their food. And also (there) has been a meeting today with the seven major private channels and all voluntarily join the establishment of the secure supply system,” said the president in an announcement translated from Spanish on his website.

An Executive Order from Barack Obama this week saw further sanctions applied to some Venezuelan citizens including freezing their assets in the United States and the prevention of United States’ businesses trading with them. The reasoning behind the sanctions, according to Obama is the “unusual and extraordinary threat” that Venezuela poses to the security and foreign policy of the United States.

The White House stated:

This new authority is aimed at persons involved in or responsible for the erosion of human rights guarantees, persecution of political opponents, curtailment of press freedoms, use of violence and human rights violations and abuses in response to anti-government protests, and arbitrary arrest and detention of anti-government protesters, as well as the significant public corruption by senior government officials in Venezuela.

The citizens of the United States need to watch how this plays out. As Henry Kissinger famously said:

Control oil and you control nations; control food and you control the people.

  1. More inspiration to get my Hugel beds started!
    “We will establish 20,000 fingerprint readers throughout the socialist system to guarantee the people their food.”- Methinks nanny-state will fail in the distribution, or use it against dissidents like Stalin did to the Kulaks during the Holodomor.

  2. Everyone is a criminal now? Give a family some potatoes and they can eat that night.
    Teach the family how to grow potatoes and they can eat for a life time!
    Wink!

  3. I find the White House statement to be ridiculous, we could make those charges against them also, pitting the IRS against the Tea Party, calling all Veterans, Conservatives and Christians Domestic terrorists, journalists dying in freak accidents while writing exposes of Government corruption, controlled Leftist media, the use of Free Speech Zones, massive unwarranted searches of home & cars while looking for one suspect, the Socialization of healthcare and schools, laws violating our Rights, false flag events, inciting racial division, a 16 year old held in indefinite detention with no charges, another American 16 year old boy killed by drone innocent of wrong doing, extreme corruption in high Government offices, and the use of pepper spray, rubber bullets and noise cannons on peaceful protesters. They are no different than the Venezuelans.

  4.

    Balderdash! I don’t care for the leadership in Venezuela, but until Venezuelan Marines storm our shores and Venezuelan paratroopers land in our fields, they are no threat to us. Wrecking their economy with sanctions simply increases the illegal invaders to our SW border. Ought to be a law that re-instates the draft strictly for the progeny/nephews and nieces for our so-called leadership in Washington, District of Criminals. Such a draft would curb their globo-cop ambitions.

  5. i wonder when Obama will start that rationing and fingerprint process with us infidels and tea baggers??
