 The United States on Thursday imposed sanctions against Venezuela's military counterintelligence agency following the death of a navy captain after a week in its custody.

The U.S. Treasury said it would freeze all assets directly or indirectly owned by the General Directorate of Military Counterintelligence (DGCIM).

President Nicolas Maduro's government confirmed the death on June 29 of Rafael Acosta, who was arrested eight days earlier for alleged participation in a coup plot.

Human rights organizations, political leaders and his family have accused the government of torturing Acosta to death.

"The politically motivated arrest and tragic death of Captain Rafael Acosta was unwarranted and unacceptable," U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said in a statement.

Did I miss sanctions being imposed on the Saudis for butchering a US resident and journalist?

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.

 

As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>

 

Please consider supporting our efforts to foster free and open discussion of current issues as they relate to the topics you are interested in.
