DECLARACION DE GENERAL ÁNGEL VIVAS

General Angel Vivas Perdomo

Caracas, lunes 15 de Diciembre de 2014.

Apreciados amigos periodistas y demás invitados a este acto:

Pretendo por su intermedio, dirigirme a Venezuela y el mundo entero, en los términos contenidos en la siguiente declaración:

No los he convocado para hablar sobre ninguno de los terribles problemas que sufrimos los venezolanos en estos momentos de tragedia nacional y que todos padecemos, solo me referiré al origen de ellos, el cual, sin duda alguna, está en los planes de infiltración, control y dominación que la dictadura terrorista y narcotraficante cubana, ha venido desarrollando en contra de Venezuela en los últimos 55 años, y que debido a infinidad de errores, omisiones y traiciones cometidas por quienes nos han gobernado, logró implantar desde hace tiempo dentro del poder, a un grupo de criminales que le sirven fielmente y que desde diciembre de 2012 está encabezado por un individuo, presuntamente de nacionalidad colombiana, que responde al nombre de Nicolás Maduro Moros.

De la mano de estos bandidos poco a poco hemos ido perdiendo la República, cediendo nuestra soberanía y poniendo en riesgo nuestra integridad territorial mientras los derechos humanos de los venezolanos son violados y nuestra dignidad nacional es humillada diariamente. Hoy en día los Poderes Públicos Nacionales son solo una ilusión en lejanía pues en la realidad todos están concentrados en el Poder Ejecutivo siendo los deseos e intereses de los sanguinarios ancianos Castro en Cuba la voluntad de eso que algunos todavía insisten en llamar “gobierno”. De la mano de estos malhechores hemos transitado mansamente por las fases de infiltración y control, y desde principios del presente año hemos estado transitando por la fase de dominación total la cual está siendo aplicada por la fuerza, plomo limpio va contra el que sale a la calle a ejercer su legítimo derecho a protestar y la cárcel espera al que no esté de acuerdo con el “pensamiento único” del castrocomunismo. Cualquier excusa será usada para aplicarla en este proceso de sumisión total de todos los venezolanos, como lo es por ejemplo, la baja en los precios del petróleo. Esa puede ser la excusa esperada por los Castro para ordenar a esta dictadura títere la aplicación de un llamado “periodo especial” en la economía y forma de vida nacional, que le permitiría llevarnos definitivamente al ignominioso sistema socio político cubano.

Conciudadanos, lo que está pasando aquí actualmente es que mediante el hambre y las necesidades piensan desmoralizarnos a todos para quebrar nuestro espíritu de lucha y voluntad de triunfo. Después de eso será fácil para los sanguinarios ancianos Castro ponernos las cadenas. Eso no puede suceder. Todos los venezolanos debemos enfrentarnos de inmediato con toda nuestra resolución y coraje a Cuba castrocomunista, al club de sanguijuelas internacionales y a los traidores venezolanos que le sirven. Y eso… eso no es una opción… eso es un sagrado deber… es una obligación. Es honorable hacerlo e indigno el no hacerlo.

En medio del entorno descrito anteriormente y desde hace algunos meses, un grupo cada vez más creciente de ciudadanos, alarmados por la terrible situación a la que hemos llegado, y preocupados por la actitud de cándida irresponsabilidad, indiferencia y colaboracionismo con la dictadura, que evidencia públicamente la mayor parte de la dirigencia política venezolana actual, que entre otras cosas, no asume el rol de liderazgo en defensa de su Patria que deberían haber asumido desde hace tiempo puesto que ese es el más sagrado deber de un ciudadano sobre todo si se precia de ser dirigente o líder político de una nación; en vez de cumplir con esa gran responsabilidad, esta dirigencia política actual, lo que hace es insistir en llevar engañados a los venezolanos hacia supuestas salidas electorales que no existen, y que solo permitirán atornillar más a la barbarie castrocomunista en el poder, como ha sucedido siempre hasta ahora, limpiando y fortaleciendo la fachada democrática que exhibe ante los ojos del mundo. Estos ciudadanos que mencione, y que constantemente vienen a mí por diferentes conductos, me piden con insistencia que asuma ese liderazgo en la defensa de lo que a todos nos pertenece.

Ante una petición de tal magnitud y significación, no puedo hacer otra cosa que agradecerles la confianza que depositan en mí y pedirles que me permitan hacer la siguiente reflexión, muy personal por cierto, pero necesaria antes dar tan importante y trascendental respuesta.

Durante toda mi vida he defendido la libertad, democracia e independencia de Venezuela tratando de dar el ejemplo como ciudadano, como militar y como padre de familia. En abril del año 2007, cuando Hugo Chávez, impuso ese lema infernal cubano que no se debe ni mencionar, a la FAN venezolana; yo, que era para el momento un General de Brigada del Ejército, lo enfrenté públicamente y aunque por eso fui enjuiciado por el Consejo de Guerra Permanente de Caracas y condenado a arresto, triunfé… puesto que tiempo después ese grito asesino, sinónimo de opresión y muerte, fue eliminado por el mismo traidor que había ordenado su uso. Junto a mi esposa he formado un hogar honorable y una familia que guarda culto al valor, la honestidad y la verdad. He convertido a la moral en mi principal herramienta de trabajo.

He cumplido al pie de la letra el juramento de soldado venezolano que hice hace 36 años, no me he inclinado ante nadie, no he rendido las armas que me entregó la república ante ningún poder extranjero y no me ha temblado, ni me temblará jamás el pulso, si tengo que empuñarlas para defenderla de sus enemigos. He tenido mucho cuidado de no inmiscuirme en la actividad político partidista ni de asumir roles direccionales sobre los ciudadanos por considerar que el ambiente político actual se encuentra totalmente saturado tanto de organizaciones como de dirigentes de todo tipo y nivel… pero ahora… ante esta nueva circunstancia en la que se me pide guiar a los venezolanos que son leales a la REPUBLICA en momentos en que quienes deberían hacerlo evaden esa responsabilidad, con suma humildad y respeto respondo…

¡AQUÍ ESTOY… ACEPTO Y ASUMO ESA GRAVE Y HONROSA RESPONSABILIDAD!

Echar a Cuba de Venezuela y castigar a los traidores que le sirven con todo el peso de la ley, es el objetivo fundamental de la Resistencia y para lograrlo se requiere tomar con urgencia decisiones muy serias, muy duras y de una gran importancia. Y para poder tomar esas decisiones se necesita disponer de autoridad, de una autoridad que solo pueden concederla los venezolanos y que yo estoy solicitando formalmente, mediante este acto pido a los venezolanos que ME DEN LA AUTORIDAD que necesito para poder guiarlos hacia ese objetivo. Pero además de autoridad también se requiere apoyo. NECESITO TODO SU APOYO PARA LOGRARLO, los necesito a todos, necesito que todos se unan de inmediato con total resolución y coraje, a la RESISTENCIA ANTICASTROCOMUNISTA VENEZOLANA (RAV) en forma activa y efectiva, la cual queda desde este momento y mediante este acto formalizada como movimiento de liberación nacional para expulsar a Cuba castrocomunista de nuestro territorio.

También pido apoyo internacional para Venezuela, y se lo estoy pidiendo es a los pueblos no a los gobiernos puesto que muchos de ellos son cómplices de los crímenes que el castrocomunismo está cometiendo aquí; le hablo a los pueblos de todas las naciones del mundo que todavía son libres, a ellos quiero decirles que los hombres, mujeres y niños que en esta tierra estamos enfrentando la barbarie castrocomunista, necesitamos ayuda, necesitamos el apoyo decidido y la solidaridad absoluta de todos los ciudadanos del mundo libre que defienden la libertad, la democracia, la independencia y los derechos humanos universales. Les pido ayuda para un país que le ha tendido la mano a muchas naciones del mundo en momentos difíciles, un país que hace 200 años le llevó la libertad a Colombia, Ecuador, Perú, Bolivia y Panamá. A todos les pido ayuda para Venezuela que en este momento yace en el piso violada y humillada.

A los venezolanos les pido con vehemencia que de inmediato nos dediquemos a trabajar en el bien inestimable de la unión para alcanzar nuestro objetivo, que nos unamos en torno a esa hermosa bandera de 7 estrellas con un caballo en su escudo galopando hacia adelante, hacia el futuro, unámonos todos conformando una sola familia, y esto lo digo precisamente porque la familia venezolana, célula fundamental de nuestra sociedad, es uno de los objetivos que el castrocomunismo pretende penetrar y destruir. Ya no es problema del vecino, ya está en nuestro propio hogar, no es momento de palabras, es el momento de actuar, las mujeres y los hombres en el campo y la ciudad, los obreros en las fábricas, los pescadores en el mar, el ingeniero, el arquitecto, el médico, el periodista, el estudiante, el maestro, el sacerdote, el militar, todos los venezolanos, todos, debemos unirnos conformando una sola masa compacta que pueda aplastar las pretensiones de los enemigos de Venezuela.

Conciudadanos… Solo nadie puede. Si ustedes deciden darme esa autoridad requerida y ese apoyo necesario yo estoy dispuesto a asumir ese liderazgo nacional que se necesita en estos momentos tan trascendentales y calamitosos para la vida y la permanencia en el tiempo de nuestra Patria como una Republica libre.

La fuerza de su respaldo en las calles de todos los pueblos y ciudades de Venezuela desde ahora y en los próximos días es lo que necesito, será sin lugar a dudas la medida de esa autoridad y ese apoyo que les estoy pidiendo… y además… también será el impulso que orientará las acciones que vamos a tomar en los próximos días hasta que Cuba haya sido expulsada de Venezuela… y para siempre.

Venezolanos… Soy Ángel Vivas… y aquí estoy… listo para defender a Venezuela.

General Ángel Vivas dando la declaración frente a la prensa nacional e internacional.

I accuse the Venezuelan regime of crimes against humanity

As proof I will submit the below image from a document in the possession of the nanny of Venezuela’s foreign minister Elias Jaua, when she was arrested for arms trafficking in Brazil the other day. It’s the plan for winning the parliamentary elections in 2015. The highlighted text reads “Marcar y neutralizar al enemigo (Derrota Permanente)”, in translation, “Stalk and neutralize the enemy (Permanent Defeat)”. Compare that with the tweets from one of the regime thug bands.

Secret document and thug tweets
The secret document reveals the existence of a plan, the tweets reveal the execution of it. Click to open.

The tweets are death threats to two opposition leaders, former mayor Leopoldo López and congresswoman Maria Corina Machado. The first is to Leopoldo´s wife Lilian Tintori and reads: “Lilian you know that Leopoldo will die that you will become a widow and your children orphans, we will kill him from you, it’s in our hands”. The second to Maria Corina reads: “Maria Corina it’s best that you go to Panama because we have you and your family followed and we will kill you, you bet on it, we will finish you”.

There can be no doubt that the death threats are real, or that they are ordered from the very top of the government. This constitutes a clear-cut Crime Against Humanity.

General som gav svenska pansarskott till terrorister arresterad

Igår arresterade myndigheterna på den holländska ön Aruba den venezolanska general som av bevisen att döma är den som gav de svenska pansarskotten Carl Gustav, på engelska AT-4, till den colombianska terroristgruppen FARC. Hugo Carvajal, “kycklingen” kallad, är eftersökt av USA för knarksmuggling. Samtidigt som anklagelserna mot honom öppnades i Miami igår, öppnades anklagelseakterna mot en före detta domare som arresterades i Miami, och mot före detta chefen för Interpol i Venezuela, vars uppehållsort är okänd. Samtliga är anklagade för mycket omfattande kokainsmuggling till USA.

I Venezuela fortsätter det folkliga upproret mot Maduros grundlagsvidriga diktatur. Regimens strategi är att göra levnadsvillkoren så usla att folk inte har tid att protestera utan måste ägna all tid åt att lösa vardagliga sysslor som att stå många timmar i kö för att köpa tillräckligt med mat. Vatten, elleveranser och internet fungerar på ett mycket sporadiskt sätt. Det saknas även medicin och grundläggande sjukvårdsmateriel. Inflationen är skyhög och omräknat till dollar har Venezuela nu Sydamerikas lägsta minimilöner, trots att landet har världens största oljereserver och borde vara rikare än Norge. Medlemmarna av diktaturen stjäl emellertid miljarder varje år för att stoppa i egen ficka, medan de facto-ockupationsmakten Kuba tar resten, och i stort sett ingenting går till landets egna befolkning.

Electric Discharge in mid air

Today we experienced a lightning storm, very mild, but suddenly there was like a static discharge in mid-air in the kitchen, 2 m in front of me, 1 m in front of the stove and microwave oven, about 1.8 m above the floor. The closest “object” was my wife’s head, about 0.5 m away. It was a light flash, the crackling sound of an electric discharge, and maybe 0.5 s later the thunder of a lightning strike was heard outside the kitchen window just behind my back. The house has a grounded copper wire all around the foundation that I installed myself. The grounding point is where the thunder was heard from. The discharge was not in the horizontal center of the loop, but closer to the grounding point. So far we haven’t found anything damaged by the lightning.

It doesn’t match the general description of a ball lightening, since they are longer lived and silent. This had all the features of an electrical discharge, although it happened in mid-air. So why did it happen? Apparently the electrical field got stronger than the dielectric breakdown voltage over some distance, maybe in the order of millimeters. For a distance of 5 mm, about 30 kV is needed. This is of course just speculation, but perhaps a strong current in a lightning outside the house, and or in the copper wire surrounding the house, created a strong magnetic field inside that, once the current ceased, gave rise to an induced electric field with a focal point in that spot in the air. A focal point? Well, perhaps it’s got to do with the limited speed by which an electrical field travels. Maybe the field is created as a wave from the electrical conductor in which the magnetic field is inducing the electricity, and the field from different parts collided in this spot in mid air to form a concentrated electrical field stronger than the breakdown voltage? Electricity is not my field, lightening is not my field, but it clearly appeared to be an electrostatic discharge in mid air, and that is the best hypothesis I can come up with.

Holodomor in Venezuela

There can hardly be any doubt: The Venezuelan puppet regime under Maduro is executing a genocide by hunger. For a long time there has been a serious shortage of food, and people are standing in line from one day to the next just to buy a single package of flour. In the past thousands of tons of food have been found rotting in containers in harbors, but that could be due to incompetence or indifference. However, the new revelations leave no room for doubt: Deliberately burying 200 tons of perfectly good food on a confiscated and abandoned farm is a conscious act executed with a purpose. There is only one logical explanation: They want to starve the Venezuelan people to either submission or death.

The confiscated farm where the food was found buried.

In Ukraine about 10 million people were starved to death the winter of 1933. Stalin took their food and forbade them from leaving the area. My grandfather, Knut “Attarparn” Nilsson, was there at the time, invited by Stalin. He realized that there were no farmers on the farms, and suspected that they were all dead. He just didn’t know how. When he returned to Sweden they sent a loaf of bread with him. It was baked on the grains taken from the farmers in Ukraine, and tasted good according to my dad who was a young child at the time, and who for many decades would know nothing about the Holodomor.

Coincidentally, the night before leaving Moscow, the group in which my grandfather was traveling were all invited to a banquet in the Kremlin. My grandfather, who understood Russian after his time in Alaska (although he had never revealed that to the hosts), switched chair with a friend. Half way through the dinner there was a ruckus around his friend, they took him by force to a hospital and flushed his stomach. Naturally one must conclude that they had poisoned the food and when they realized it was the wrong person sitting there, they saved his life. I say this to illustrate how they think and behave. Killing a person to “save the revolution” is admirable for them, but to kill the wrong person is not allowed.

The food was buried at Corozo Pando in central Venezuela.

Not only does Maduro execute verbal violence; not only does he let his cattle shoot at unarmed protesters; but he is clearly a person who stops at nothing to hold on to power, not even genocide by hunger: Holodomor.

China controls all U.S. Internet?

We have heard about the U.S. government’s back doors into internet servers and hubs. Anything the U.S. can do, China can do as well. They just need physical access to the device during the production stage. In every home where there is Internet, there is a modem. For instance, Comcast has Xfinity modems. Where are they made? In China.

If I were anxious to control free speech (like China, Russia, Cuba, and the Maduro puppet regime in Venezuela are), then my main concern would be to make sure that the truth does not go viral on the Internet. It’s not necessary to prevent it completely from getting out, since it can be diluted with propaganda lies. All one has to do is to make it slow in spreading, and a way to do that is to limit the ability of those who are spreading it to access the internet. In fact, that is exactly how the regime is acting in the ongoing conflict in Venezuela. This blog has been the target of such an attack for months (now the technicians have hopefully solved the issue, for now; it was an attack that made it very hard to access the server where this blog is hosted). But now I’m getting a different type of attack.

Several times a day my Xfinity modem stops transmitting certain information, in a very targeted way so as to affect only the channels I use to share information about Venezuela, nothing else. It goes away when I reset it, so the code that’s doing it obviously resides in software, it’s not hard programmed, it’s not in flash memory but in RAM. How do I know it is not in my computer? For two reasons: It cannot be resolved by restarting the computer, and it affects identical computers in the same way, even though I’ve never used them for communicating.

There are two possibilities, the first being that there is a backdoor into the Xfinity modem. A modem like that is a computer. When it starts it works, but then at some point of time, abruptly the communication stops working on certain channels, meaning it gets re-infected. The second possibility is that the hack is being done on the Comcast server that the Xfinity modem is communicating with, somewhere away from my physical location. It would have the same symptom, because when restarting the modem the communication channel is re-established, a new session is started in the server, and until the attacker identifies and corrupts the new session, everything will work.

But why go through all this trouble? I’m helping sharing the truth about Venezuela, I’m assisting Operación Libertad Venezuela, and although this was supposed to be secret (exactly to avoid these kinds of things), some not-so-bright freedom fighters have published it (such as Robert Alonso and Cristal Montañez), revealing that they don’t understand what they are up against. They obviously don’t understand the nature of their enemy. I’m going out of my way to help their country in its fight for freedom, and they repay me by putting my life in danger.

If you want to understand what the limits of the enemy are, watch this documentary (sorry, no English subtitles for non-English speech): The Soviet Story (2008). Maduro in Venezuela, Castro on Cuba, and Putin in Russia are all reincarnations of the same ideology, communism. They will react similarly because they follow the same “logic”. They will kill enemies, but not someone who by coincidence found out a forbidden truth; that person will just be prevented from communicating it. They believe in class warfare, but they will not kill the unwanted elements of society if there is a better way to get rid of them (having them flee to Miami is a better way, from there they will actually be sending money back to Cuba / Venezuela, and provide a staging ground for infiltrating USA). They may ruthlessly kill Smith, but leave Jones alone, because they are following orders and to kill the wrong person is a crime even for them. The easiest way to understand them is to think of them as the Mafia. They are the Mafia, the world’s greatest and most powerful Mafia.

If you wonder what role the Chines play in this, I have a question back for you: What’s the Chinese word for “mafia”? In Italy there are different mafia families. They can cooperate on projects without being united. Every family looks after it’s own interests. Crime is a capitalist endeavor; if the Chinese have a way of hacking internet, there is no reason they wouldn’t sell their services to another mafia family. For money, or for some other favor in return.

The bottom line is that the cyberwar is already in full swing, and the first victim – as always in wars – is the Truth. Except this time it quite literally is the truth that is targeted.

Facebook censures Venezuelan call for help

Facebook has censured an image posted in protest against the crimes against humanity committed by the dictatorial regime of Nicolás Maduro in Venezuela. His thugs undressed a protester and forced him to walk naked. In protest many in Venezuela have also got naked, and today there was a naked march in Caracas to call attention to the dictatorship. Yet Facebook censured this picture posted on the page of Operación Libertad Venezuela (OLV, Operation Freedom Venezuela).

Image censored by Facebook 2014-04-05

This is Facebook’s own guidelines: “Facebook has a strict policy against the sharing of pornographic content and any explicitly sexual content where a minor is involved. We also impose limitations on the display of nudity. We aspire to respect people’s right to share content of personal importance, whether those are photos of a sculpture like Michelangelo’s David or family photos of a child breastfeeding.” Clearly Facebook has in this case violated their own guidelines to “respect people’s right to share content of personal importance“. Their decision is absolutely appalling, given that on multiple occasion regime apologists have posted comments on the OLV page with hate speech and encouragement to violent acts, but not a single time has Facebook removed such a comment contributing materially to Crimes Against Humanity.

The Battle for Democracy in Venezuela

On April 14, 2013, the Cuban regime stole the presidential election in Venezuela and gave the victory to their Colombian man, Nicolás Maduro. People took to streets all over the country but were gunned down. The candidate who really won the election, Henrique Capriles, caved in and called the protests off. At this point the democratic resistance started organizing, and at the 5-month mark of the election fraud, September 14, Operación Libertad Venezuela called for a Day of Rage. The party of Capriles secretly sabotaged the protest, forbidding their members to participate in any way. When this was revealed in public people got very angry, and started realizing that the opposition was working in cohorts with the regime.

One of many demonstrations in 2014 demanding regime change.

This led to a series of grassroots protests in November with thousands of people all over the country. Capriles had sold the municipal election in December as a “referendum” on Maduro, but of course the opposition lost, since the election fraud issue had not been dealt with. This was the final nail in the coffin for his credibility. In January, the tragic murder of a Miss Venezuela, Monica Spear, fueled an outrage over the rampant murder rate, the highest in the world. Shortly afterwards, an attack on a student at a campus sparked a student revolt in Táchira.

One of many killed by the regime. Many have been shot in the head, by either regime thugs (their version of brownshirts), or by snipers, or by soldiers who are often Cubans in Venezuelan uniform.

With Capriles out of the picture, other opposition politicians took over and called for a non-violent rebellion in order to recover democracy. Those behind the October and November protests joined in, and all sectors together took to the streets. These protests are grass roots. Nobody controls them. The number of people supporting them keeps growing all the time. I know of some who were chavistas when it started, and who are now on the barricades since weeks. They have joined when they saw how the regime responded to peaceful marches with gunfire; how they tortured their sons and daughters; and when they were attacked in their homes while not having anything to do with the protests.

The core complain is that Venezuela has been colonized by Cuba and lost it's independence. All other issues are incidental and caused by this.

Let me take Valencia February 12 to 13 as an example. On Feb 12 a peaceful march was ambushed by regime thugs, with the military leaving them at their destiny. Miss Tourism 2013 of the state was shot dead, a bullet hit her head. The next day the same people were demonstrating peacefully in front of a shopping center, and some walked up to the military and asked them to please not shoot at them. The response of the military was to do just that, start shooting at them. They even shot at people in their apartments who were filming what was going on, destroyed vehicles etc. Something unexpected happened when street criminals, people from the poorest areas (the only ones armed apart from the regime) opened fire against the military to defend the unarmed civilians. That has later happened on other occasions in Valencia, and in several other cities as well. What the street criminals see are not militaries shooting at civilians; what they see is Cubans shooting at Venezuelans. There are tens of thousands of Cuban soldiers in Venezuelan military uniform and they form the core of the oppression.

The regime is using military equipment against civilians, including Dragoon tanks with 90 mm cannon which they have been caught on camera firing in civilian neighbourhoods.

The regime uses military equipment such a this tank with a 90 mm cannon. They also deploy thousands of thugs who have been armed and paid by the regime to spread terror, and they are responsible for many of the murders. Furthermore, the regime deploys tens of thousands of Cuban soldiers who, in violation of international law, operate in Venezuelan military uniform. To do so once hostilities have started – which they obviously have – is a war crime.

Venezuela i krig med Kuba

Folket i Venezuela tog till gatorna i en fredlig massdemonstration med början den 2 februari. De har mötts med våld från regimtrogna brunskjortor, “colectivos” på spanska. Igår öppnade Nationalgardet eld på fredliga demonstranter i staden Valencia, bara för att de bad dem att INTE göra det. Från många städer har folk talat om för mig att nationalgardisterna har en kubansk brytning. Samtidigt har jag hört från flera familjemedlemmar till nationalgardister att deras anhörige har varit förlagd till förläggningen sedan den 2 februari.

Fredlig protest i Caracas den 18 februari 2013

Detta betyder att nationalgardisterna på gatorna är kubaner, inte venezolaner. Eftersom nationalgardet är en militär styrka (en del av det nationella försvaret) och inte en polisstyrka, så betyder detta att kubanska soldater håller Venezuela ockuperat. Vidare, att de går i strid i fiendens uniformer, vilket är ett brott mot krigets lagar, en Krigsförbrytelse. Till yttermera visso deltar de i Brott mot Mänskligheten i Venezuela.

I Mérida, en studentstad i bergen, har det varit hårda protester med sammandrabbningar med utdragna skottväxlingar mellan regimens brunskjortor och vanliga småkriminella, som har kommit till undsättning när regimen anfallit protesterande studenter. Vanliga människor kan inte ha skjutvapen, det är förbjudet, men de småkriminella i fattiga “barrios” har hur mycket vapen som helst. Efter den gångna nattens brutala övergrepp har de tagit till gatan över hela landet.

I Mérida igår, 19 februari.

I den andinska delstaten Táchira har protesterna varit ännu starkare. Det var där det började då studenterna protesterade mot bristen på polisskydd på universitetet, där rån är en daglig företeelse. Hela delstaten har protesterat till den grad att all verksamhet har avstannat, och regimen har förlorat kontrollen. Igår fanns varken polis eller nationalgarde på gatorna, men en ny bas håller på att sättas upp och kubanska elitsoldater flögs av allt att döma in med helikopter. De kallas svarta getingar (avispas negras). Rykten talade om en förestående massaker i gryningen, men min kontakt i motståndsrörelsen svarade trotsigt: “Låt dem komma. Vi är beredda,” och idag protesterade folket åter fredligt på gatorna utan tillstymmelse till polis eller militär närvaro.

Idag demonstrerade folket i Táchiras huvudstad San Cristobal ånyo för fred och frihet.

Medan Táchira har förklarat sig “befriat område” sände Kuba igår två flygplan med soldater för att besätta ön Margarita, där igår för första gången blockeringar av vägar orsakade totalt avstannande av verksamheten. Av Venezuelas 24 delstater är det bara 2 som inte har deltagit i allvarliga protester.

Igår sköt nationalgardister med kubansk dialekt en katolsk präst, och misshandlade honom svårt, i delstaten Zulia. Han är indian, och på eftermiddagen höll fyra indianstammar på Guajirahalvön rådslag. Dessa indianer är kända för sin stridslystnad, och spanjorerna lyckades aldrig kuva dem. De har nu anslutit sig till upproret mot den kubanska ockupationen av Venezuela.

För aktuell information rekommenderar jag faceboksidorna som motståndsrörelsen har: www.facebook.com/OperacionLibertad, www.facebook.com/OperationFreedomVenezuela (engelsk), eller www.facebook.com/OLVsvenska (svenska).

OTP report clears Honduras; attack by Axis of Evil continues

The Office of the Prosecutor in the International Criminal Court (yes, I know that you guys followed this blog from Sept 2009 to Feb 2010) has now released a report on preliminary examination activities in Honduras. In paragraph 61 it says that Porfirio Lobo “instituted a Truth and Reconciliation Commission (Comisión de la Verdad y Reconciliación) to cover events between 28 June 2009 and 27 January 2010” (CVR is the abbreviation). Here’s the problem: The conflict did not start June 28th, 2009, and the CVR’s mandate does not start with the events June 28th, 2009. As I have reported on this blog, over and over again, the CVR was a condition in the Guaymuras dialogue introduced by interim president Micheletti, and approved by the deposed president Zelaya; it was to cover the events before, during, and after June 28th, 2009. This is important, because every serious legal analysis until date has concluded that it was not a coup d’état; that the label coup d’état is entirely political with no foundation in the legal facts.

The OTP report talks about a “crisis room” that was installed in the presidential palace on July 6th. In fact I proposed the installation of it to Micheletti, and I stayed in contact with it during his entire interim presidency. It was a way of finding out the other side of the story, since virtually all media reporting represented the spin from the chavizta propaganda machine in Venezuela (Telesur being the main source of video footage). The purpose of the crisis room was to counter this massive propaganda machine, but it was still a modest effort: Six persons, against a global network of interconnected media, from news services to satellite TV to state employed bloggers – with messaging controlled by the president and minister of information in a totalitarian dictatorship that wished to take control over Honduras: Venezuela.

The Honduras crisis 2009 was not a “coup d’état”. It was the legitimate defense by one nation against a non-military aggression by another nation, with the intent of annexation. We now know the true intentions of the aggressor nations thanks to an audio recording retrieved from the computer of a Cuban military in 2012. At the meeting they talk about Cuba Grande Socialista, which will start with annexing Venezuela and Nicaragua, and for that reason they have decided to murder Hugo Chávez (which they did in December 2012 and then tried to conceal), and replace him with Maduro who is docile and manageable. From their point of view it was necessary to murder Chávez since he wanted to create Gran Colombia Bolivariana instead of Cuba Grande Socialista, to annex Colombia and Ecuador rather than Nicaragua, and to make himself the leader rather than Fidel.

It’s easy to see why they want Venezuela, the petroleum wealth, but the reason for desiring Nicaragua is more interesting in relation to Honduras: They want an alternative to the Panama Canal, one that they control. In Nicaragua there is an old project, older than the Panama Canal, that still is kept alive: The ECO canal, via Lake Managua, Lake Nicaragua, and San Juan River. It’s main drawback is the aridity of the Lake Managua drainage basin, some years not providing enough water for the necessary sluices to the Pacific Ocean. Another drawback is the shallowness of the San Juan River. Economically it cannot compete with the Panama Canal, but that’s not the point: Cuba wants it for political reasons, if they are shut out from the Panama Canal. In 2012 they were not, so one must ask oneself what were they up to, since they expected to be shut out from the Panama Canal? After the seizure of Cuban military material on a North Korean freighter it does seem, though, as though they may become shut out now…

Over to Honduras. There is a project being promoted there called the “canal seco”, the “dry canal”. It consists of a harbor in each end and either a railroad or a motorway in between, and the purpose is exactly to provide an alternative to the Panama Canal. Who is interested in financing it? China, an ally of Cuba. Nicaragua and Honduras are the only two countries that can offer an alternative to the Panama Canal. Nicaragua is already a dictatorship, and Ortega might not be such an easy nut to crack as the weak Honduran democracy. The newly elected president in Honduras, Juan Orlando Hernandez, has proved to be very amenable to corruption, and that is how the enemy gets his foot in. There are already thousands of Cuban agents in Honduras, disguised as medical personnel, but whose real purpose is psychological operations in preparation for a possible annexation such as the one just being carried out in Venezuela after the assassination of Chávez.

Returning to the OTP report, they conclude: “While there were victims of killings, torture, sexual violence, detentions of longer duration and/or in conditions of a severe nature, or serious injuries, the commission of these crimes did not seem to have occurred in an organized and regular pattern.” This is the same thing that I heard during the crisis from the above-mentioned situation room, or “war room” as we called it at the time since it was in effect an act of aggression against Honduras: There was an accidental shooting of a civilian, there was someone found dead after having been detained and released, there were cases of sexual violence, but none of it was neither ordered nor sanctioned from the top; they did what they could to stop it, since it put them in jeopardy (and the OTP report is proof of that; they have been investigated until now).

In paragraph 74 of the report the “crisis room” is mentioned:

“Although not necessary, given the findings on the lack of either a widespread or systematic attack, the Office also considered whether there was any evidence of a policy to attack opponents of the de facto regime. …the establishment of a “crisis room” designed to plan operations to repress the opposition could also be an indicator of a policy … However … As regards the “crisis room”, it is not clear that emanating from this coordination there was a policy designed to attack, on a widespread and systematic basis, the civilian population…”

Again, let me spell it out: It was my idea to create this situation room, I proposed it to Micheletti through intermediaries, and the purpose was to provide the truth about what was happening to the media, population, and the international community, since the world media were totally dominated by the enemy propaganda (from Venezuela, Cuba, Russia, and other members of the Axis of Evil). Again, the situation room was devised to get the TRUTH out, and to the best of my knowledge all who worked there (six of them) were all communicators, none were involved with security issues. Of course they talked with the heads of security, that’s where they got their information from, but they did not direct security, they only reported the facts. For instance, it was through that channel that I found out how Telesur was staging “news” stories (the Telesur video has been taken down, I guess they didn’t like to get exposed so they reported it for copyright infringement).

The attack by the Axis of Evil against the sovereignty of Honduras continues, however. A week ago Manuel Zelaya’s wife, Xiomara Castro de Zelaya, was defeated in the presidential election. The interesting fact is, however, who financed her campaign: Venezuela and Cuba! Since a couple of years Cuba ceased to be the number one threat to Latin America, according to USA. It is now Russia. Russia is for all intents and purposes a Nazi regime, a criminal enterprise, and Cuba is, too; there is no significant difference between the Nazi and the communist ideology as clearly described by this documentary from Latvia (a nation that has suffered both Nazism and Russian communism): The Soviet Story. It’s a very upsetting film, especially the recent events since they show that the Empire of Evil still exists – and it wants to build a navy base in Venezuela, where it already has a significant military presence. Honduras is not out of the woods, and the “canal seco” is surely of high strategic value to the axis of evil.

PS. The Truth Commission was also my idea, so I know very well that the purpose was to cover the before as well as during and after June 28th, 2009. And let me add, I did give advice to Micheletti, but I did so protected by Free Speech – by writing it on this blog – and never accepting any payment for it.
