Venezuela åt venezolanerna!

Varför är venezolanerna i uppror? De har rest sig för att befria landet från de främmande diktaturer som har tagit kontrollen över deras land. Det började med att Chávez sålde ut landet till Kuba, men nu är det framför allt Ryssland som backar upp regimen militärt. Kina och Iran har också intressen i regimen.

Nicolás Maduros regim är inte legitim. Då Chávez dog ljög han och Diosdado Cabello om dödsfallet, och underlät att följa grundlagens successionsordning. De förfalskade Chávez namnteckning i flera månader innan protester tvingade dem att krypa till korset och kalla till val. Maduro ställdes upp som kandidat trots att han varken är kvalificerad (han är född i Colombia och inte i Venezuela), och trots att en person med hans position inte får ställa upp enligt grundlagen. Trots att en stor majoritet föredrog Capriles så förklarade regimen Maduro som vinnare. De gjorde många sorters valfusk, bland annat betalda röster, tvångsröster, brott mot valhemligheten, röster under hot, men även elektroniskt valfusk: En person hade fått kännedom om lösenord tillhörande ledningen för valmyndigheten och med hjälp av dem kunde han avlyssna kommunikationen mellan Kuba och Venezuela under valdagen (valfusket görs på Kuba). Klockan 6 på kvällen fick jag reda på resultatet med två decimaler av general Peñaloza, innan det sista valkontoret ens stängt, och flera timmar innan resultatet offentliggjordes. Detta bevisar för mig att valresultatet är totalt falskt, och helt och hållet en produkt av den kubanska diktaturen.

Vidare har regimen åtminstone sedan 2003 begått brott mot mänskligheten. Det året upprättades en databas över politiska sympatier, och de som var mot regimen har sedan dess diskriminerats systematiskt: De har fått sparken eller vägrats anställning, de har inte fått bostad eller kastats ut på bar backe, deras barn får inte studera på universitet, de får inga bidrag som de annars skulle ha rätt till, och så vidare. Hundratusentals om inte miljoner har tvingats i landsflykt som följd av detta.

När började det gå snett? Vi vet nu att Chávez var en “manchurisk kandidat”. Han ljög för att bli vald, och han var hela tiden kontrollerad (och manipulerad) av den kubanska diktaturen. Han led av storhetsvansinne, och Castro utnyttjade det. Men när Kuba insåg att Venezuelas ekonomi var totalt förstörd för ett par år sedan, så bestämde man sig för att göra sig av med Chávez och införa ett totalitärt styre som på Kuba. Tänk efter: Hur många läkarutlåtande har publicerats om Chávez sjukdom: Inga! Var behandlades han? Enbart på Kuba! Vad säger hans dödsattest? Ingenting, för det finns ingen! Vem sa till Chávez att han borde se en läkare? Fidel Castro! Hur kan vi veta att han faktiskt dog av sjukdom, och inte av meningslös behandling? Det kan vi inte! Men det finns en ljudinspelning av kubanska agenter där de talar om att de måste göra sig av med Chávez för att annektera Venezuela (och sedan Nicaragua; är det en tillfällighet att Daniel Ortega också försvunnit på Kuba?). I inspelningen säger en person att Chávez tror att han är sjuk “men det är han inte, fast han tror det”, och att de kan utnyttja det för att göra sig av med honom på ett humant sätt på sjukhuset. Chávez led av storhetsvansinne, och han lät sig utnyttjas av Castro. Han var en större quisling än själva Vidkun Quisling.

När Chávez svors in 1999 efter att ha blivit vald (han tilläts ställa upp trots att han lett två blodiga militärkuppförsök 1992, och att han var delaktig i det kubaledda blodiga upploppen “caracazo” år 1989), så utropade han en “konstituerande grundlagsförsamling”. Alla demokratiska institutioner avskaffades, och nya skapades som lydde Chávez. Nästan alla medlemmar i församlingen var trogna Chávez. Det var en juridisk statskupp. Sedan 1999 har regimen i Venezuela varit en kuppregim, och inga val har varit legitima.

År 2002 ledde en fredlig protest, som möttes med våld, till Chávez avgång, men två dagar senare blev han återinsatt av militärer. Regimen spenderade en förmögenhet på att sprida propagandalögnen utomlands att det varit en militärkupp och att Chávez återinsattes av folket, det vill säga precis tvärtemot sanningen.

År 2004 hölls en folkomröstning med frågan om Chávez skulle avsättas. Hela 60% röstade ja, men regimen begick elektroniskt valfusk och ändrade det till 60% nej. Sedan dess utvecklades regimen till en skenvalsdiktatur, med en opposition som hjälpte regimen att få demokratisk legitimitet genom att spela med och hävda att valfusk inte existerade. De såg till att alla protester leddes in på fel väg och misslyckades. Den viktigaste personen i detta spel var den gamle gerillakämpen och kommunisten från 1960-talet som nu påstod att han var med oppositionen, Teodoro Petkoff.

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.

Crimes against humanity in Venezuela

Since Chávez was elected president of Venezuela in 1998, and installed in 1999, a range of crimes have been perpetrated by the regime. The first was a judicial coup d’état in 1999 when democratically elected president dissolved the Constitution. The second was the gradual handing over of national sovereignty to Cuba, now complete with the installation of non-venezuelan citizen Nicolás Maduro as the Cuban puppet dictator in Caracas. However, infinitely more serious are the Crimes Against Humanity committed starting in 2002, and still ongoing.

The first of these Crimes Against Humanity was a deliberate slaughter of civilians on April 11, 2002, and the second – and still ongoing – is the political Apartheid against dissenters. We are not talking about tens or hundreds or thousands of individuals; we are talking about more than three million people who have systematically been denied their human rights for 10 years.

Murder and extermination

Let’s start with April 11, which the regime calls a “military coup”. It was a million person march in protest of the president’s policy. It was organized by the employers and the trade unions together. The march was far from the political center of power. Through my research I’ve found out what really happened. I’ve interviewed organizers, participants, an officer in the honor guard, an officer on duty who disobeyed the order from the president to deploy the military, one of the assassins, and one officer–who apart from being a Venezuelan military officer also is a Cuban intelligence agent–whose job it is to make the world believe it was a pre-planned military coup, by acting and speaking like he was involved in the planning of the military coup.

People in the march all say that the call to march to the presidential palace Miraflores came from within the march, not from the leaders. The only reasonable explanation is that the regime sent agitators to the march, because people don’t act like that spontaneously, especially not Venezuelans. In all the cases I have observed in that country, only when infiltrated agitators stir up the crowd does it change its plans (and it happens every now and then).

Earlier, Freddy Bernal, mayor of Caracas, had recruited some of the city’s employees, young men in desperate situations, to be snipers stations on the rooftops around Miraflores. These are rooftops where the honor guard have snipers to protect the president during official acts, so nobody else has access but the regime. However, this day there were no honor guard snipers since there was no official event, and the march was far away. The young men were given sniper rifles and forced to consume cocaine. Regime supporters were also rallied around Miraflores, and a small “field hospital” was set up. When the march approached Miraflores it was close to the point where Avenida Baralt passes below Avenida Urdaneta. Regime supporters were on this second street. Some time here the snipers opened fire. Not only marchers but also regime supporters were hit. Persons in the top echelons of the regime also opened fire, from Avenida Urdaneta down on Avenida Baralt. Police on Avenida Urdaneta tried to stop the march in vain. Police officer Simonovis, later convicted to 30 years of prison, was trying to stop the march and warn it that the regime had prepared an ambush for it up ahead, but the march continued until it was fired upon. The police on Avenida Urdaneta tried to protect the people, fired back at those they perceived were shooting at the crowd. The regime supporters on Avenida Urdaneta who were caught on video shooting down on Avenida Urdaneta were given medals. The police who defended the lives of the innocent civilians were given 30 years in jail.

The calculation of the regime was that they would be able to control the situation. The event was designed to quell any future desire to protest. To once and for all do away with the willpower of the people. However, when Chávez (I won’t call him president, he was a triple coupster, dictator, and quisling, a bigger quisling than Quisling himself), when this quisling ordered the activation of Plan Avila, the military contingency plan to quell a popular uprising, the military refused. One after the other refused to take the call from Chávez. The regime’s plan of how to get away with it involved taking control of the media message, by ordering a “cadena” (as in ‘network’, the government making all stations part of its network). In Latina America (and this should be changed!) the president typically has the power to command all television stations to broadcast an official message live. So Chávez started talking about nonsense on the air, while people fell to the ground outside from the sniper’s bullets. However, here came the second unexpected behavior that day: The private television stations made a split screen, and also ran a ticker on the bottom of the screen, so they got the news out in spite of the “cadena”. This caused national outrage and Chávez eventually resigned. That’s why the regime calls it a military coup. Here’s the thing, though: The officer who wrote the resignation letter, and who has it in his possession with Chávez’s handwritten resignation on the back, is a Cuban agent. His job is to make the world believe that it actually was a military coup. It wasn’t. The resignation was premeditated to allow him to come back with a free pass. He was brought back to days later by general Baduel (who was the only co-conspirator of the Feb 4, 1992 military coup who betrayed Chávez and did not participate in the coup; he later became minister of defense but was then thrown in jail where he still sits).

The crime against humanity was to deliberately lead civilians into an ambush and slaughter them. It constitutes a crime against humanity of murder as described in article 7 (1) (a) and or crime against humanity of extermination as described in article 7 (q) (b).

Later in 2002 a group of military officers made a long occupation of Plaza Altamira in protest against the regime, but the occupation was terminated when a sniper opened fire on the civilians. That assassin is now a diplomat in Costa Rica, if my memory does not fail me. Since the act was perpetrated as part of a systematic attack, it, too, should be considered a crime against humanity.

Persecution and apartheid

After the 2002 events the civil society started collecting signatures for a presidential recall referendum. This was a long and arduous process, in which the regime repeatedly rejected the collected signatures, and put up difficult demands, but they were eventually all met and the recall referendum was held in August of 2004. The “yes” vote got about 60% of the votes, but the regime committed electronic election fraud (this has been proven beyond any doubt through a number of scientific papers in international peer-reviewed journals), and declared that the “no” vote had won with about 60% of the votes. However, they did something much worse: They used the signatures to compile a list of dissidents, the “Lista Tascon” as it’s commonly known.

People on this list have ever since been the target of political Apartheid: They have lost their government jobs. They have lost or not been given subsidies. Any and all action that requires government intervention, the over 3 million people on that list have been systematically discriminated against. That is another crime against humanity: Crime against humanity of persecution as described in Article 7 (1) (h), and or Crime against humanity as apartheid, as described in Article 7 (1) (j).

Mass killing

The regime in Venezuela has deliberately armed, equipped, and supplied criminals for the purpose of increasing the level of crime in the country. The police is forbidden from interfering with the activities of these criminals. This has led to the nation now having the highest murder rate in the world, 79 per 100,000 persons in 2013 according to an independent estimate (the regime figures are notorious for being far too low and no serious observer believes them). They true rate may in fact be much higher than 79, it’s very hard to find out. All in all, at the very least, one hundred thousand persons have been murdered in excess of what would have been the case had not the regime had this policy. That this is deliberate is well proven, and that the present dictator, Maduro, is aware of it and condones it, is beyond a shadow of a doubt.

The recent murder of former Miss Venezuela, a well known actress in USA, Monica Spear, was a direct effect of this policy. The minister in charge tried to turn the blame to her for not having bodyguards. That statement reveals that the regime’s intention is to kill off the middle class: Those who can afford a car but who can’t afford bodyguards. The intention is to turn the country into a two-class society: The ruling “vanguard party”, and a powerless proletariate maintained in ignorance. They want the oil income, and they don’t want to share it with anybody. When I write “they” I mean the Cuban regime and the Venezuelan quislings.

Monica Spear, Miss Venezuela 2004, murdered 2014
Monica Spear, Miss Venezuela 2004, murdered 2014 as yet another victim of the Crimes Against Humanity that Cuba is committing in Venezuela.

Starvation, Homelessness, Robbery

Other crimes include an economic policy designed to not provide food for the people, by destroying the production apparatus and not providing foreign currency with which to buy merchandize abroad. It includes the destruction of all private enterprise. It includes the occupation of private homes by regime supporters – with no possibility whatsoever of getting help from the State.

There is no doubt that a Crime Against Humanity is being perpetrated in Venezuela RIGHT NOW. There is also no doubt that Cuba is the architect of this Crime, and there is no doubt that Cuba is being backed up by Russia. The interest of Cuba is the oil: It needs the Venezuelan oil for the regime in Havana to survive. The interest of Russia is strategic: Venezuela is being converted into the most important satellite state of the new Russian Empire; a military outpost designed to threaten USA from the south. China’s involvement is mainly through financing it seems.

The modern coup d’état: Constituent Assembly

On August 12, 1999, the Constituent Assembly (asamblea nacional constituyente) in Venezuela declared itself above the law, above the constitution, above the parliament, above the president, even above the Supreme Court. They thus broke the constitutional order, which is tantamount to committing a coup d’état. The case went to the Supreme Court, which ruled that the Constituent Assembly was above the constitution, why they had the power to declare themselves above the law so to say. The Supreme Court decision was clearly outside of its competence.

Writes Gianluigi Palombella in «Constitutional Transformations vs. “Juridical” coups d’ État. A Comment on Stone Sweet»: “according to the common view, when a competent power acts within the limits of its conferring rules, explicates its own tasks within the range of the rules of the game, without asserting a new, previously un-conferred – power for the future, this would be unlikely to be characterized as a coup.” The Venezuelan Supreme Court clearly and blatantly acted outside of its conferring rules, outside the range of the rules of the game, when it conferred all the powers of the existing constitution to an assembly that was not contemplated by the constitution – even it’s own powers. It was a clear-cut coup d’état from a juridical perspective.

How was it possible to get away with such a blatant coup d’état in our day and age? It seems that the coup was “sold” by confusing two terms, thus obfuscating the matter in media. The appropriate assembly would have been a Constitutional Assembly (asamblea constitucional in Spanish), i.e., an assembly tasked with drafting a new constitution to be approved according to the provisions of the existing constitution. This is what was done in Iceland recently, for instance. However, what they did create was a Constituent Assembly (asamblea constituyente).

A constituent assembly is only appropriate when there is no pre-existing constitution, for instance in the French revolution, the Russian revolution, the Venezuelan independence, and the Estonian independence in 1919, since in those cases the previous condition had been a monarchy without a constitution, or a situation of being a part of another State. In contrast, Finland did not hold a constituent assembly after independence, since they had retained the Swedish constitution during the time Finland was a Grand Duchy of Russia. Nor did Estonia hold a constituent assembly at the second independence in 1991 (they instead held a constitutional assembly to write a new constitution). As a final example we can take Iceland: No constituent assembly was held at independence since they continued with the (slightly modified) Danish constitution, until they eventually held a constitutional assembly to modify the constitution without breaking the constitutional order.

It is possible that the similarity between the words “constituent” and “constitutional” has been exploited on purpose in order to confuse, and to get away with the juridical coup d’état en Venezuela in 1999. It is, however, impossible to deny that it was a coup d’état, and that ever since 1999 Venezuela has been ruled by a coupster regime.

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.

Cuban occupation force beats down Venezuelan demonstration

Today all over Venezuela people were demonstrating against the Cuban occupation of their country, and the foreign “Viceroy” that they have installed, Nicolás Maduro. The Cuban plan was revealed the other day in this video, in which the former Cuban ambassador to Venezuela, German Sanchez Otero, is heard outlining the plan to annex Venezuela and Nicaragua (and eventually also Colombia), and that Hugo Chávez has to be eliminated because his plan was another, he wanted to annex Colombia and Ecuador with HIM as the dictator rather than Castro. The Cuban plan goes under the name “Cuba Grande”, Great Cuba. Venezuela is required for the petroleum, and Nicaragua for the planned canal, ECO, from the Pacific Ocean through Lake Managua and Lake Nicaragua to the Caribbean Sea (since Cuba cannot use the Panama Canal). This is the background for the demonstration identified with the hashtags #30N and #30NAutoConvocados. It is the fourth Saturday in a row that people take to the streets to protest the Cuban occupation, but this time – for the first time – they were met with with violence, force, brutality; Cuban brutality!

The attack in Plaza Venezuela, Caracas, started with a militia dressed in black by force taking all the cameras and cell phones from the protesters, while the police stood idly by. The below photo was taken from a window in one of the tall buildings near the site.

Militia en black robbing the protesters at Plaza Venezuela of cell phones and cameras.

In spite of their attempts, at least one protester managed to record and get away to upload the video to YouTube, where it was rapidly copied to different accounts for security against deletion. Reports say that at least 10 people were injured in the unprovoked attack in Caracas, even though it was still early, and only some 50 people had gathered in the demonstration at the time of the attack. It is clear that the Cuban occupation administration decided to crack down on it before it had a chance to grow to the size of last week’s protest, with many thousands of people present.

Other protests were carried out in sites across Venezuela, just as on previous dates: Nov 9th, Nov 16th, and Nov 23rd. The coming Saturday, Dec 7th, is the day before the municipal elections, why no protest is planned on that date, but on election day or the day after instead.

Mel Zelaya calls 70% of Hondurans “coupsters”

Sunday’s presidential election was more than a regular presidential election in Honduras. Since deposed president Manuel “Mel” Zelaya’s wife, Xiomara Castro de Zelaya, was running for election, it was for all intents and purposes a referendum on his deposing on June 28th, 2009. So how did it go? In a three way race, she apparently came in second. In a press conference today, Manuel Zelaya – according to reports in social media – called all those who does not agree with his party “golpistas”, ‘coupsters’. That is over 70% of the voting population of the country.

"I am the coupster" - Manuel Zelaya calls over 70% of the population coupsters, golpistas.

The rejection of Xiomara Castro de Zelaya at the polls appears to have a lot to do with the recent collapse of the Venezuelan socialist regime. As a response to a mass demonstration across the country against the illegitimate president (Maduro is Colombian) on November 9, Maduro instigated plundering of shops all over the country, a process that is still continuing (timeline video). Given that Xiomara Castro openly displayed the Cuban flag (over the Venezuelan; see photo below), and that the Venezuelans openly reject the “Cuban invasion” (see second photo below), her credibility got seriously tarnished. The claims that voting for her would not mean opening the door for Castro-communism in Honduras were just not credible for the majority of the population. Especially when that very dictatorship, with known imperial ambitions, effectively was paying her entire campaign.

While the flag in the following photo was burning the crowd was chanting “¡Fuera, fuera fuera!” (literally ‘out’ but in English we would say ‘Cubans Go Home!’).

¿Quien paga la campaña de Xiomara Castro de Zelaya?

Este domingo 24 habrá elecciones presidenciales en Honduras. Un candidata que puede ganar según las encuestas es la esposa de Manuel Zelaya, Xiomara Castro. Han creado un partido para los Zelaya, “Libre”. Este partido parece tener mucho dinero, mucho más recursos que los demás. ¿Pero de adonde viene?

Me informa un fuente con enlaces a PDVSA, la compañía estatal de petróleo en Venezuela, que Manuel Zelaya tiene un puesto en Petrocaribe (una organización de PDVSA para vender petróleo a países en el Caribe y America Central) que le da un porcentaje de cada barril vendido a America Central. Por cierto, en marzo del 2010 yo escribí sobre el hecho que “Mel” había sido nombrado a un puesto en Petrocaribe, pero el hecho que recibe porcentaje de estas ventas es algo nuevo para mi. Eso explica mucho. Explica hasta por qué el presidente de Panamá, Martinelli, parece flojo en la oposición a la amenaza izquierdista en las Américas. Recuerda que el presidente de facto de Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro, solo es un títere de Raúl Castro de Cuba. El que realmente controla las cosas es otro, probablemente el comandante cubano Ramiro Valdés. O sea, quien realmente paga la campaña de Xiomara de Castro es la dictadura castro-comunista, usando dinero robado del pueblo de Venezuela.

VENEZUELAS KRISTALLNATT

Det sydamerikanska landet har sedan i lördags genomlevt en period av plundringar av affärer beordrade av regimen. Det förefaller som om offren, affärsägarna, i de allra flesta fall är palestinier, libaneser och syrier. Plundringen beordrades av de facto-presidenten Nicolás Maduro fredagen den 8 november, och började den 9 november i Valencia. En affär i kedjan Daka, som säljer hemelektronik, plundrades bara några kvarter från en marsch som krävde Maduros avgång. Denna marsch var den första av sitt slag, och det råder inget tvivel om att plundringen beordrades för att sabotera för den landsomfattande marschen.

Maduro beordrade i fredags militär och polis att tvinga affärerna att sälja till ett av staten fastställt pris, vilket bara var en bråkdel av det gamla priset. När affärerna vägrade blev de plundrade, eller öppnade med tvång. Diktatorns tal var inflammerat med en vokabulär som var ägnad att uppmana till plundring.

Igår tvångsförsåldes varor i en affär för 10% av inköpspriset. Ägaren, en arab som knappt talar spanska, fördes gråtande bort och fängslades anklagad för ocker. Han bad dem att inte ta allt han ägde, och att det hade varit bättre för honom om de plundrat affären. Ekonomiskt sett då, för fängslad hade han blivit i vilket fall.

Denna video visar Maduros tal den 8 november, och några händelser från den 9 till den 13 november. I översättning säger han först att genomsnittet definieras som tusen(!) procent, sedan att han har beordrat att “sacar todos los productos (a la venta)” vilket betyder att lägga ut allt till försäljning, men kan misstolkas som att plundra allt av den som inte hör slutet av meningen. “Det skall inte finnas något kvar på hyllorna eller i lagret!”, betonar han. Kan knappast misstolkas. De infällda scenerna är från Daka den 9 november, Los Teques den 10 november, Upata den 13 november, och Puerto La Cruz den 11 november. Maduros åhörare skanderar “Så, så, så är det man regerar!”

Även polis och nationalgarde deltog i plundringen av Daka i Valencia i lördags.

CARTA A LOS MIEMBROS DE LA FAN VENEZOLANA

Noviembre de 2013

A la delicada situación que vive nuestro país, se suma la probable existencia de un hecho sin referencia histórica alguna, por tal razón los militares venezolanos en el exterior, residentes, perseguidos políticos, exiliados, refugiados y protegidos por organismos internacionales, nos dirigimos a los miembros de la FAN para que reflexionen profundamente sobre este hecho de importancia capital para la República, y al que diferentes sectores de la vida política del país, especialmente personeros del régimen, han querido convenientemente restarle la gran significación que tiene y las consecuencias que conlleva.

Nos referimos a la preocupante duda que se cierne sobre la nacionalidad de Nicolás Maduro Moros, quien hoy ocupa la primera magistratura del país. Desde cuando la noticia se hizo pública, se ha tratado de obtener respuesta a tan delicada denuncia, pero sólo ha habido manipulación por parte del régimen y de los órganos responsables de atender lo que podría constituir un acto de TRAICION A LA PATRIA.

Con tan flagrante actitud, tanto el Consejo Nacional Electoral como el Tribunal Supremo de Justicia violaron los artículos 41 y 227 de la Carta Magna venezolana.

El artículo 227 reza, entre otras cosas, “que para ser elegido Presidente o Presidenta de la República se requiere NO poseer otra nacionalidad”. En tal sentido, si la ciudadana Teresa de Jesús Moros Acevedo de Maduro, madre de Nicolás Maduro Moros, es de nacionalidad colombiana, esto lo convierte en ciudadano colombiano, según el artículo 96 de la Constitución de Colombia.

Agotadas las instancias civiles y administrativas, la FAN, en cumplimiento de lo establecido en el artículo 328 de la Constitución Nacional, debe exigir al ciudadano Nicolás Maduro Moros que presente su legítima Partida de Nacimiento, documento de fácil obtención y tenencia obligada, que acredita como ciudadano venezolano por nacimiento a todo aquel que la posea.

El ciudadano Nicolás Maduro Moros debe despejar toda duda razonable de no poseer doble nacionalidad, debido a que quien ejerce el cargo de Presidente de la República, asume la delicada responsabilidad de ser el Comandante en Jefe de la Fuerza Armada Nacional, cargos reservados exclusivamente a ciudadanos venezolanos por nacimiento y, de no hacerlo, de acuerdo con el mandato del 350 constitucional, SE DESCONOCERA su autoridad por “contrariar los valores y principios democráticos y menoscabar los derechos humanos”.
