USNS Comfort Hospital Ship in Columbia Treating Refugees From Venezuela & More.

Bogota, Columbia....The first phase of the USNS Comfort hospital ship mission in Turbo finished yesterday after assisting 5,450 patients and performing 131 surgeries. The mission will continue in Riohacha as of November 26. In the five days of the mission in Turbo, USNS Comfort staff and their allies attended a total of 5,450 patients and performed 131 surgeries. The Hospital Comfort Ship is now heading to Riohacha where it will pay attention during the days November 26 to 30, once it finishes its mission in Colombia it will depart to Honduras.





The closing ceremony was attended by Captain William Shafley and Captain Kevin Buckley of the hospital ship Comfort; Col. Alex Ramirez Commander of Task Force Against Drug Trafficking # 73 Neptune; and representatives of the municipalities of Turbo, Apartado, Necoclí and Mutatá.

In the words of 5-year-old patient Shirley Madrigal, seen on the ship for a revision of a scar on her upper lip, medical attention "surprised me". The marine nurse Brian Matthews, was in charge of accompanying the girl and her relative while she received medical attention.

It should be noted that the ship that arrived on November 14 to Turbo, also had the mission staff, with volunteers from the United States, Argentina, and other nationalities. Among the Colombian volunteers, the mission had the support of more than 45 students of the last degrees of medicine from Colombian universities who helped as translators during the medical treatments.

With these positive results, the mission in Turbo closes its first phase and thus extends a special recognition to different entities such as the Government of Colombia, Ministry of Defense, and Ministry of Health; AmCham Medellín; UNHCR; and the Colombian National University of Colombia, Pontificia Universidad Javeriana, the Andes, El Rosario, La Sabana and La Salle, without whom it would not have been possible to succeed in these first days of the mission in Colombia.

    Liberal Democrats are Socialists.
    Nazis are Socialists.
    One of the most well known political parties of the 20th century which was socialistic was the National Socialist German Workers' Party (Nazi Party).
    Socialism is a liberal economic system with state ownership or control of the all the major means of production and distribution of goods and services, like Healthcare.
    Socialism is the economic system imposed by Communism, but another one of the most well-known political parties of the 20th century which was socialistic was the National Socialist German Workers' Party (Nazi Party) which was headed by the evolutionary racist Adolf Hitler.
    The points raised in the Nazi platform demand an increase in taxes to support them. Liberalism today demands heavy progressive and graduated income taxes.
    Liberalism today demands a "death tax" on anyone inheriting an estate and Central control of the financial system.
    Central control of the press. Liberals today demand control or suppression of talk radio and Fox News.
    Central control of education, with an emphasis on doing things their way. Liberals today are doing things their way in our schools.
    ANTIFA Democrats want to deny your First Amendment Rights to Free Speech.
    Liberal Democrats are The Nazis repackaged. #VoteThemOut2020

      No, these are global citizens looking out for those less fortunate or in need. As opposed to you and your own selfish concerns.

            Nazis took guns away from the people. Stifled their speech. Did not allow free and fair voting. Democrats are modern-day Nazis. #VoteThemOut2020

        How come the socialists or global citizens aren't complaining about Hugo Chavez Jr? One of the worlds largest oil reserves and now that the Govt took everything over and stole the assetts from the oil companies they can't get enough crude out of the ground to buy toilet paper.
