Elections in Honduras: The Left Riots, Loots, Burns At Losing in the Counting

December 2, 2017

The international press is totally mutilating the truth in its reporting out of Honduras about the elections held on Sunday this week, where the beast of Venezuela style socialism rears its ugly self again, after being rejected soundly by the nation in 2009.

A recap of events in 2009 in Honduras, and how this would be strong man little Chavez wanted his own dictatorship:

In this next link you’ll find my blog post about how Allende and Zelaya are the real coup-mongers:

And this one I wrote during the days after Zelaya was arrested:
https://trutherator.wordpress.com/zelaya-was/

Voters in Honduras went to their voting stations this past Sunday, November 26, 2017, to cast ballots for mayors, diputados (congressional representatives), and for president.

Juan Orlando Hernandez is the presidential candidate for the Partido Nacional (“Nationalist Party”). The main opposition candidate is sportscaster Salvador Nasralla, a candidate for the leftist “Alianza de Opposicion contra la Dictadura”, a candidate for the so-called “Partido Libre” and PINU. This “Alianza” should really be called the “Alliance to Impose Dictatorship”, because of the personality in the background, returning to the fray after Honduras rejected him because he rejected Honduras, Manuel Zelaya, aka Mel Zelaya. His official title in this confederacy of villains is “Coordinator”.

If Nasralla wins, then Zelaya wins.

Nasrallah signed an agreement with the International Observers who came for the election, as did Juan Orlando, to accept the results without protest the results as announced by the TSE.

But some three hours after signing the document, he renounced it. The word from Honduras (forget the international agencies) is that he did this without checking with Manuel Zelaya first. He hid in the background in the campaign while calling the shots. Zelaya didn’t like that at all, and three hours later he broke the agreement. And now yesterday, he called for street protests, knowing that he was unleashing an orgy of violence, and that’s exactly what is happening right now in Honduras, this day, Friday, December 1, 2017.

Part of the blame may fall on the TSE, but they have announced, and the European Union observer team also said in press conference, that they had to suspend the counting efforts because of the tear gas floating in from outside. The tear gas was used to disrupt the so-called Alliance supporters who were outside the TSE offices and trying to get in to disrupt the counting. And as an excuse he said it was because of the computer outage during the counting.

ZELAYA BACK, BUT WHO’S BEHIND HIM?

My wife was in high school with Manuel Zelaya, who is the figure she tells me pulls the strings on Nasralla. She told me her classmates regarded him as the dumb one in school. And when one teacher told the class anybody could be president in the country, Zelaya announced he was going to be president. The class roared in laughter. Before his arrest in 2009, while still president, many political observers thought Secretary of State Patricia Rodas was the mastermind of his presidency. Patricia Rodas did her college studies in Cuba.

What is lost in the noise is that the Alianza de Oposicion has representatives present for the counting.

Nasrallah led in early counting but the tide turned after a time, so it was easier for the leaders of this socialist alliance to send their gullible followers to the streets.

IMPORTANT NOTE ON NASRALLA:

During the campaign, one interviewer asked Nasralla about the brutal violent gangs Salvatrucha 13 and the 18 gang. He said he was not afraid of them, they were his “friends”. At some point, I’m told he said (publicly) that he would stop Juan Orlando’s construction of maximum security prisons to hold them, and would let them go to the streets.

Those gangs and their violence got much worse during the Zelaya presidency.

My wife has a friend, a poor friend, who lost a son to the gangs. A cousin as well. And the friend’s son was almost killed until her errant daughter (who was or is a friend of some sort with the gang leader at the time) intervened to protect him.

It seems to some extent, too, and certain times, these gangs learned to cool down a bit with honest working families. For awhile, they were running out of people that had anything. One family, friends with part of my stepchildren’s close circle of college friends,

The gangs collect what they call a “tax” from businesses in their territory. But sometimes their turfs “overlap”. We have a close friend of the family there that had a good small family store. She was already having to pay this “tax” to one gang, and then came another to collect. So now she has to pay this monthly extortion to TWO gangs. Very discretely, because if one gang finds out about the other one, they will murder her.

That’s one reason in reality, Juan Orlando is so popular among the productive sectors of the people, and a great number among the poor as well. One channel walked up one street and asked every person waiting on a bus which way they leaned, and it seemed like an even mix.

LATE BREAKING

The head of the delegation of observers from the United Nations, and the head of the group of observers from the European Union, are asking the Opposition (Nasralla-Zelaya) and their followers to cease from the violence in the streets, so they can continue counting the votes. They are waiting for the Opposition to return to the TSE counting area so they can continue, because the law says all parties should be present.

One man speaking for the Partido Nacional demands that Opposition return to the counting table, asking if they won the vote, then why are they not present to defend their interests?

So the official delegations from the OAS and the UN can see who are the disruptors, who are the cheaters.

So far, there has been a lot of burning and looting, and in San Pedro the looters cleared an entire department store of its merchandise, drugs, furniture, electric appliances, stoves, refrigerators, clothes, everything.

Blocking roads. They destroyed the toll booths on the road outside San Pedro to the main highway that leads to Tegucigalpa. In one town they set a very old church on fire. It was recorded by someone wailing that they had no shame.

They don’t want a fair vote, looks like they want power, and the poor fools sucked in by their demagoguery are willing to do the sacking the looting and the burning for them.

En Copan, one National Party leader denounced one of the leaders of Alianza who went into hiding because someone discovered that she had ordered their followers to burn down the police station for the town.

This a fake protest on the part of Nasralla and Zelaya, who simply want to take power, by riot and mayhem if they cannot win an honest vote.

Please say a prayer for Honduras tonight. (And tomorrow).

Stop blaming the CIA for every Latin American nation that stops socialist dictators!

October 23, 2013

Sheesh! Like the below whowhatwhy posting. Most of it is true in my opinion, but it seems liberty-minded writers in the US are good at discerning factors on domestic policy but are just starting to keep up with the changes in foreign lands:

http://whowhatwhy.com/2013/10/21/monday-morning-skeptic-ny-times-buries-cia-facts-re-latin-american-deaths/

I agree with most of the article at the link, but there is a VERY important new development in Latin America especially with respect to US meddling and undercover operations around the world. That is, nobody noticed, but now, instead of supporting so-called misnomered “right-wing” coups, and never-ending re-“election” of anti-Communists, their intelligence apparatus has begun, together with the diplomatic corps, to prop up leftist caudillos like Hugo Chavez and his fellow fascists.

In Honduras, they supported the left-wing coup by Manuel Zelaya, who became dictator while the world was ignoring the country. Even though the Congress was elected by the same electorate as himself. It started much worse when he came back from the Caribbean-Central American presidential summit in Santo Domingo in November 2008 where George Soros was keynote speaker! Kid you not.

Not only did Zelaya refuse to obey anything legislated by Congress, he also disobeyed a long series of Supreme Court orders, and lots more. That’s a coup. That’s what they called it in Peru –an auto-coup– when President Fujimoro dissolved the Congress, after it was paralyzed by the terror from the Sendero Luminoso, so-called.

The American Ambassador was in the presidential mansion the night before Zelaya planned his phony “survey” that he was going to use to justify dissolving Congress. He was helping plan this auto-coup consolidation, why else was he there, and he lent his name and office in support to this another leftist coup by phony “election”.

This is one case that I know about. Accusations that the CIA supported ousting Zelaya are a laugh riot. Hondurans wanted to get rid of him so bad, they were marching in the streets regularly, protesting him and especially his plans to consolidate his dictatorship.

Nobody needed to convince the Hondurans over this at any level. And through it all, the military forces stayed strictly obedient to the civil authorities.

Meantime, CHAVEZ was the meddling imperialist in Honduras. He’s gone now, and his successor is trying to be another one. You can blame the CIA for a lot of things around the world, but not that one.

And also adding to the international intrigue, Jose Insulza, head guy at the OAS, used their resources to order support for Zelaya’s illegal and unconstitutional “survey”, a cover for fraud and the propaganda to justify his dictatorship.

Insulza pounded at Honduras to put the coup-running president back in. And remember, as a young political adviser to Openly Marxist Salvador Allende’s regime in Chile he played a part in wreaking havoc on that attempt to install a leftist dictatorship in the continent.

And in Chile, never mind that the Cubans were meddling and intervening, pouring agents in, and helping coordinate the importation of leftists from the entire continent, no doubt with logistical and other support from the tyrants in the Soviet Union. Government embeds in the Communist government also were stockpiling large warehouses full of weapons, preparing for confrontation, no doubt. They started calling for troops to mutiny.

But Congress and their people saw the economy in the pits. Nationalizing the copper mines only provided payout opportunities for political cronies. Accidents skyrocketed over Anaconda’s record, the mines began losing money instead of paying taxes, and the nationalization was like shooting yourself in the foot to spite your leg!

So the CIA may have been involved, but the military did not intervene until their Congress passed a resolution finally, demanding that the military brass do something to stop the runaway Communist dictator!

The USA is the biggest bully and interventionist in the world, for sure. But let us remember that socialism and fascism tends to  shoot itself in the foot by its nature, and that there is a significant and numerous part of the people in Latin America who want NOTHING to do with socialism.

Beware the Plutocrats’ Revisionist History: Question Everything

June 2, 2013

Here is my answer, my book review of: “Efrain Rios Montt: Servant or Dictator?” on Amazon, found here:
http://www.amazon.com/Efrain-Rios-Montt-servant-dictator/dp/0884491102/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1370118641&sr=1-1&keywords=rios+montt+biography

This story gives the other side of the historical revisionist model, fed to us by the international corporate-media complex that would like to deceive us into buying into their fascist/socialist farce.

It is another example of both sides of the bad guys finding a convenient scapegoat. While the atrocities committed by openly atheist and Communist guerrillas are ignored and blamed on any “rightist” government handy, the slightest “rightist” slight is exaggerated, invented, twisted.

This is pure revenge against Rios Montt, a convenient target, for actually bringing the Indian tribes in question here into the economic like (“beans”) while arming them to defend themselves against the ruthless and brutal guerrillas (“guns”).

#1. The “Left” (a front for international fascist/socialism, which is a front for a small super-capitalist-banker NWO clique while claiming to oppose it) hates him for doing the opposite of what he is accused of doing. He organized the program to bring the Indians into economic life and arming them against the extremely violent guerrillas, who often used the Indians as cover so they would get the blame and to try to provoke retaliation. —Provoking retaliation was a tactic I learned about when I was a Communist myself–.

#2. The faction among the landowners that wanted to rob land from the Indians hate him for stopping their plans, some of them falsely accusing some of the Indians of guerrilla activity.

#3. There were some corrupt colonels and generals, no doubt, getting benefit from cooperating with the landowners, so they hate him too. Besides, he is a convenient scapegoat.

#4. Many of the corrupt rich hated his rule –and colluded with the generals to get rid of him later– because he was fair to all, and the day he was ousted was the same day that a national sales tax would go into effect, a percentage tax that the rich could not escape.

#5. NOT LEAST, the Roman Catholic hierarchy must have hated him because he was an evangelical. There is a faction among them that was fierce against my own missionary work in the Dominican Republic, of whom I once met a Jesuit priest. They have a more peaceful face than the history we know, but they are still trying to take over all of Christendom again. These are glad to revise history.

Efrain Rios Montt’s reputation among Guatemalans of honesty and integrity is why the military commanders to ask him to be president. Guatemalans had roared against the recent obviously fraudulent re-election of the previous president demanding his removal, but they didn’t trust the military at the time either.

Rios Montt was their compromise. Or cover, maybe?

He didn’t heed their radio calls for a long time. They found him working at the church where he taught Sunday school. If he were the bad guy as painted by this late kangaroo court, he would not have reacted like he did. “Sorry, boys, I have to take some time and pray about this and get counsel with the brethren”.

I’VE SEEN THIS HISTORY REVISIONISM BEFORE. In fact all the international press you heard about Honduras in 2009 is exactly upside down, inside out. Manuel Zelaya was “elected” –and he admitted his fraud in an interview with Jorge Ramos of Univision, he violated the Constitution he swore to obey and wanted a different one, he advocated re-election which was explicitly both forbidden in that Constitution and defined it as “treason”. Honduras was fed up with fraudulent re-election lifetime presidents when they ratified that Constitution in 1982.

Zelaya was auto-coup dictator by 2009, the people in an uproar against him and with constant demonstrations against him. The CIA may have interfered to help Chavez install Zelaya as lifetime dictator, certainly the US ambassador had endorsed his fraudulent referendum/survey cover-story plans, and was in the presidential palace Saturday night June 27 helping with those plans.

Honduras did not want to be another Bolivia or Ecuador or Cuba or Venezuela. Yuck! they said. They are already poor enough, they said. Now history revisionists have twisted the story.

This book is one under-funded attempt to right the wrong propaganda, a counter to the flood of lies coming at us from the NWO oligarchy.

And now, finally, it seems that the liars and revisionists did an over-reach and they are getting at least some blowback, from both the “LEFT” AND THE “RIGHT”. Former guerrillas join “rightists” in blasting what they call an “infestation of Marxists” in the Attorney-General’s office.

From the Miami Herald:

http://www.miamiherald.com/2013/05/24/3415188/reversal-of-rios-montt-verdict.html

GUATEMALA CITY — The overturning this week of former military dictator Gen. Efrain Rios Montt’s conviction on charges stemming from Guatemala’s brutal civil war has created a surprising consensus among critics on both the left and the right: Prosecutors badly overreached when they tried to pin accusations of genocide on the 86-year-old former president.

Despite sharp divisions over the civil war – the legal process against Rios Montt exposed that underlying issues of racism and inequality are still-open wounds – starkly opposing forces are united in criticizing the prosecution for saying that ethnic hatred, and not economic or ideological issues, was the root of the war. They include two former Marxist guerrillas and a right-wing activist who asserts that Marxists infest the Attorney General’s Office.

“To affirm that a genocide occurred is to twist history,” said Adrian Zapata, a sociologist who was a guerrilla commander during the civil war, which gripped Guatemala from 1960 until peace accords were signed in 1996. “What happened wasn’t an ethnic war like between the Hutus and the Tutsis in Rwanda.”

A fellow former guerrilla leader, Gustavo Porras, said Rios Montt had deployed soldiers in a scorched-earth campaign in the remote Ixil Triangle region because rebels had a strong presence in the area, not because he sought to wipe out the Ixil Maya, one of 21 ethnic Mayan groups in the nation.

“The Ixil area was the home of the EGP,” Porras said, using the Spanish initials of the Guerrilla Army of the Poor, a faction in the insurgency known as the Guatemalan National Revolutionary Unity. “It moved through that area for decades.”

Paraguay demands respect from Mercosur, “if not leave us as we are” — MercoPress

May 31, 2013
English: MERCOSUR (orthographic projection)

English: MERCOSUR (orthographic projection) (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Paraguay recently defended itself from another would-be lifetime dictator when it impeached and ousted a recently elected president who had immediately begun doing the same kind of things that ex-dictator and auto-coup leader Manuel Zelaya did in Honduras, so that they followed their own constitution and removed him from office formally.

Of course when a legislative body of government ELECTED BY THE PEOPLE followed their law and removed a president who did NOT follow their law, Hugo Chavez and his presidential cheerleaders called this a “coup”. When a country defends itself against a dictator’s coup, the “Left” so-called calls it a “coup”. Unless they are getting rid of a “right-wing” president who did the same thing like Fujimori did in Peru, to
the sound of much quiet cheering by Peruvians.

Chavez wanted Mercosur to kick the OAS out of the way so he could take over all Latin America more easily. I don’t know what he’s complaining about, Insulza, the Secretary General at OAS did all his bidding, after all, and always said there was nothing he could do about the Venezuelan government shutting down all voices of opposition (and he never spoke out against it either), and tried to help force Honduras to put the coup leader Zelaya back in power. In other words, he couldn’t interfere in the internal affairs of a fascist/socialist dictatorship but he could interfere with a genuine republic as is Honduras.

Note that Insulza got his start in the dictatorship of Salvador Allende in Chile who set the pattern for this. Allende ran the country like a fiefdom, ignored laws passed by the also elected representatives of the people in Congress, who finally passed a resolution demanding that the military forces intervene to stop him. They had no constitutionally prescribed solution at the time.

Paraguay demands respect from Mercosur, “if not leave us as we are” (meaning leave  us out of your club of dictators, wolves in sheep’s clothing)— MercoPress:
http://en.mercopress.com/2013/05/27/paraguay-demands-respect-from-mercosur-if-not-leave-us-as-we-are

The Argentine ambassador to Uruguay, Dante Dovena, assured that authorities are “working intensely” in preparations for the next Mercosur summit scheduled to take place on June 28th in Montevideo. However news from Paraguay doesn’t indicate the same optimism and are demanding respect for ‘the country’s dignity and rule of the law”.

“Our ministry and Argentine delegation before the Mercosur are giving a boost to the first meeting of the regional bloc in which both Venezuela and Paraguay will be present for the first time,” he said. “We hope there are no inconveniences in order to reinstate Paraguay as a member country after what we went through and that Venezuela can be appointed in the Pro Tempore presidency of the organization without any inconveniences,” he explained.

“I believe these two matters are everybody’s goals,” he said.

Ambassador Dovena was the only Mercosur member representative at that level that attended Paraguay’s national independence day celebration (May 15) in Montevideo. Not even the Uruguayan foreign ministry sent a top ranking official to the reception, President Jose Mujica was represented by the ministry’s head of protocol.

The newly elected leader of Panama:

After Horacio Cartes’ victory in the last Paraguayan presidential elections, diplomats from Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay said that “they agree to leave without effect the suspension called on the landlocked nation by Mercosur members after former president Fernando Lugo was impeached in June last year.”

However the Paraguayan government and president-elect Cartes have anticipated that Mercosur members “will have to work out how to find respect for the rule of the law in Paraguay”. Cartes added that “the dignity of Paraguay must come out in absolute integrity. If it is going to be blemished, let it remain as it is”

The message was a strong signal to Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay that last June decided the suspension of Paraguay because of the removal, following political impeachment, of Fernando Lugo by the country’s Senate, and his replacement by President Federico Franco.

“They will have to find a way so that Paraguayan rule of the law is respected”, insisted Cartes.

Mercosur presidents did in effect congratulate president-elect Cartes on his victory and welcomed the return of Paraguay to the block, but the suspension still is pending and apparently, according to Brazilian sources, won’t be lifted until next August 15, when Franco steps down and is replaced by Cartes.

“We’re not going to return because of money. Paraguay will return with its dignity fully respected; forget about condoning or rebates on Venezuelan oil, what matters is the dignity of Paraguay, the country’s rule of the law must come out with absolute integrity”, insisted Cartes.

The president-elect said Venezuela is not the problem: “however let’s not forget that President Nicolas Maduro is persona non grata for our Lower House and the Senate rejected the incorporation of Venezuela to Mercosur”.

Cartes recalled that Paraguay is a founding member of Mercosur, and the charter of Asuncion, and according to those rules the incorporation of any country “must be approved unanimously by the founding members, a decision which in this case did not happen and has injured the dignity and rule of the law in Paraguay”

The CIA is not slouch and no angelic force for good but facts are facts. There is some really wrong stuff in that article about Guatemala! And if the “left-of-center” governments were so vulnerable to the CIA, then why is there no right-of-center governments left in Latin America?

Where do you get your paycheck for being a professional history revisionist, Stephen? I’m breaking my own rule and I am not even going to post a link to such revisionist history, a coverup for the really bad guys, probably the guerrillas themselves that did the massacre and then blamed it on the military.

The ruling against Efrain Rios Montt is a blatant abuse of power and corruption itself, a coverup for the real abusers, and is a message to all men in political positions to “obey, or else we will get you, now or later”.  And they want you to remember Pinochet: If we can’t get you, we’ll keep you locked up based on a lying judge in Spain (with an open public history of Communism) for awhile and then we’ll come after your children. It’s also a warning to their operatives, the ones that are fully cognizant of the crimes they commit against all the peoples, to stay away from Christians. That’s another reason he’s the one persecuted.

The bad guys have offered up a scapegoat to take the blame. But it won’t work. They will get their just desserts later, maybe from the same overlords that wanted to punish him.

The revisionist history that makes genocide disappear is not the ones that the revisionists that fancy themselves “leftists” make it out to be.

Fact check #1: Efrain Rios Montt did NOT  “seize power”. A coup d’etat did ask him to run the government, after overthrowing one of the most blatant electoral FRAUDS to that date in Guatemala’s history, after the then RIGHT!-of-center president that they overthrew arranged his own “re-election”, votes be damned, and the people roared in such loud protest demanding mlitary intervention against this shameless attack on “democracy”. They asked Efrain Rioss Montt to serve because he was universally respected in Guatemala as honest and impeccable.

But they overthrew him 16 months later because he remained true to his reputation, and because he tried to STOP dirty tactics against the guerrillas. Three percent my ass!

That’s why it took till NOW to do this, because (1) the real bad guys needed a scapegoat, and they don’t like Bible-believing Christians, and (2) a lot of voices of truth resisting the lies had to die off first, and (3) to get a younger indoctrinated generation critical mass that was not so close to events.

Like Manuel Zelaya planned on doing in his own unreported auto-coup, too, in 2009.

As to that slaughter of the Indians, he STOPPED it. It was local landowners getting colonels to take over lands, AND THE GUERRILLAS WERE MAKING SURE THERE WAS ENOUGH CONFUSION AND FALSE INTELLIGENCE TO MAKE SURE a lot of innocent Mayans would be killed.

That is what they’ve been doing in Honduras. The revisionist history in this article is the “leftist” version. The international socialists are as bad as the National Socialists for pushing lies and propaganda and distortions.

As we speak they are agitating a climate of serial murder against journalists and public figures in Honduras to take over by hook and crook after the Honduran people rejected their auto-coup by fraud in 2009.

Revisionist history indeed!

The Daily Bell hits another long one: Soviet goals in the Cold War

I can’t believe some of the ignorant criticisms of the very idea that the Soviet Union did not have an agressive imperialist policy! Their influence in the Comintern is historically undeniable! When I was a Communist in more gullible days, I never thought it to be any secret that Communists had a duty to propagandize for revolution by any means necessary!

Lenin even laid out their plan, you have to try real hard to avoid finding out what he said about first taking Russia, then the masses of China, then subverting (my synonym) Latin America, and then America falling into his hands.

But in the USSR, their military academies have always taught their officers that a nuclear war with the US was inevitable and that whoever struck first would win.

For gosh sake, what do you think they were doing hosting anti-war conferences, including Bill Clinton ahem, during Vietnam? (Which I hated, marched against, and still condemn today as a follower of Christ and libertarian BTW).

What, you think the Soviets weren’t imperialists just because Hollywood only makes CIA movies?

Look at Hugo Chavez, the guy who took his new million-dollar jet –his first “socialist” toy after getting elected– straight to Paris and straight to the prison to see Carlos Ilyich Sanchez, aka “The Jackal”, most wanted terrorist in history until OBL (so bad even Europe hated him) Before seeing France’s head of state. Then to Moscow where he said “I have always been a Leninist”. Beijing: “I have always been a Maoist”. Iran: “I have always been anti-Yanqui”.

He stole his country’s oil money to spread his openly Marxist-Leninist-Maoist Communism to his neighboring countries. So YES A THOUSAND TIMES YES! socialism, especially its parent, Marxism, has always been imperialist. Hugo Chavez and his agents –they captured 100s of them in Honduras after they removed the dictator coup-governing golpista Manuel Zelaya, that you will never hear about on CNN or Fox News either– those agents flooded so many dollars into Honduras trying to put the dictator puppet back in, that the lempira went UP by about FIFTEEN PERCENT!

In fact, there’s a new word in Spanish now! “Narco-imperialista” It means narco-imperialist. That’s because he took some of the drug money they got from the Communist FARC guerrillas to try to enslave Honduras!

And they’re still trying to conquer Honduras, organizing thugs to “occupy” private farmland. And a brave Venezuelan journalist after the November 2009 election uncovered a Chavista plot hatched by the dictatorships of Venezuela and Cuba and their lackeys from Honduras to assassinate reporters and politicians and blame it on the elected government.

If you don’t think socialists are imperialists, look up Karol Cabrera, the most influential journalist against Zelaya in Honduras in 2009. Her daughter murdered, a colleague murdered, in attempts to kill her, she had to finally hide inside a MILITARY base to escape the murderous Chavista beasts. Trying to shut the mouths of the media voices that told the truth to power. Maybe now you can see another possible reason that the people in the American Old Media seem so loving of more government power.

TELL THE TRUTH! Thank you Dr. Tibor Machan for telling the truth!

 

The TRUTH about the Chavez auto-coup that fooled the world press

March 9, 2013
English: Honduran girls demonstrating against ...

English: Honduran girls demonstrating against Manuel Zelaya. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Maybe it’s my 20 years of experience as a missionary in Latin America and living in Miami and being married to a wonderful lady from Honduras, plus my philosophy of liberty, provides some insight into the events in Venezuela, including the “coup” that has the attributes of an auto-coup engineered purge the armed forces and consolidate power.

That “coup” in Venezuela has all the attributes of an “auto-coup”.

To begin with, you have to remember that the “coup” started when Chavista political thugs fired on a million-person march that had been totally peaceful, KILLING at least a dozen people DEAD. He ordered the metro Caracas police away from the march to leave them exposed for this massacre.

Chavista politicians were recorded on video firing into the crowd. The Chavista-packed “courts” threw out all the murder charges in spite of the video, based on a flimsy whimsy excuse.

That’s not “anti-Americanism”, that’s MURDER.

Hondurans had their own Chavez-surrogate in dictator Manuel Zelaya, who led his own auto-COUP when he stopped obeying laws passed by Congress and defiantly disobeyed multiple court orders. He took international foreign aid and threw it into his own re-election president-for-life campaign. He was running a government that was totally outside the Honduran constitution, breaking all the records of corruption of before, even admitting to Jorge Ramos on the Univision cable channel that he had committed election fraud to get into the office.

Do not believe the lies. The CIA had nothing to do with getting Zelaya out of the Presidential Palace, which after his auto-coup that nobody understood to call it that, which it was, because a fully 85% of the Honduran population HATED his government by that time. They did NOT want to be like Venezuela or Cuba.

That made Hugo Chavez a NARCO-IMPERIALIST. Hundreds of drug planes have fallen in Honduran territory, and they all had Venezuelan registry.

All those demonstrators CNN liked to put on against the CONSTITUTIONAL Micheletti government? Bought and paid for. Chavez poured so many petro-dollars into Honduras for this fake movement that the Honduran currency, the lempira, went up TEN PERCENT against the dollar. The price kept going up for getting students into the street and manning barricades and blocking traffic.

So THE CHAVEZ AUTO-COUP DID WORK, AND IT DID WORK VERY WELL! Because it was a ruse to deceive military officers skeptical of the idea of stealing from the people to SAY they were giving to the poor, while Chavez created his own club of billionaires out of friends of his.

I realize that Aaron Russo said they planned on taking down Chavez, but he is no Gaddafi. It’s like a pack of wolves and a bear battling over who gets to eat the sheep.

It all has a George Soros stamp on it. He gave the keynote address to the summit of Caribbean and Central American presidents in the fall of 2008, where Zelaya was there and did some dinner and chit-chat with Chavez and Soros both.

And don’t forget, Chavez was no stranger to taking control by coup, as he engineered his own “coup that didn’t work”. Somebody put out a bio saying that what got him mad was orders to fire on Venezuelan citizens.

That’s a LIE, because he had no trouble backing up his own political thugs firing into the crowd during that fateful march in Caracas, and he had no trouble at all backing the FARC in their fight, despite their massacres of civilians in neighboring Colombia. Note that when FARC guerillas were caught on camera schmoozing it up with Venezuelan military officers on a base inside Venezuela, the Chavez government immediately ordered the journalist who discovered it to give up the whistleblower.

IF you support Bradley Manning, you should support that brave journalist in Venezuela.

She is also the one who exposed the Chavez plan to engineer a long series of killings in Honduras after the election there and to blame the murders on the Lobo “coup” government. It’s not a “coup” government in Honduras, but it sure is in Venezuela, where Chavez before, and his hand-picked successors now, do not even obey their own abusive constitution.

Hondurans have joined Cubans and Venezuelans in their gratitude that the demagogue dictator is out of the picture, even as they do not celebrate death per se. But they do not have a lot of hope.

God help us if libertarians get fooled by this narco-socialist or any other demagogue in the world. American libertarians are suffering from a lack of good information from other nations.

So let us remember. Demagogues and dictators come in any kind of label, whether “left” or “right” or “Islam” today.

Thoughts on John Barnes and “Daybreak Zero”

February 14, 2013

This is mostly a reaction to reading a semi-leftist viewpoint of the novel:

http://opionator.wordpress.com/2011/04/23/daybreak-zero-by-john-barnes

You can’t trust international courts any more than local courts, in fact much less. The temptation of money and power is relentless on the human psyche, and trusting others to conform to rules for respecting individual rights is naive at best, and at worst makes one the “useful idiot” Lenin was talking about, like I used to be as a Communist. Trusting the totalitarian state to fade away when it’s no longer needed, as Karl Marx said it, is a stupid idea that too many smart people fall far (yep, even me).

I don’t know of even one libertarian who advocates castle feudalism along the lines of the ones John Barnes describes in this novel “Daybreak Zero“, and I know a great many of them. That kind of thing is more of a United Nations idea, a subtext in authoritarian world government. The United Nations’ advocacy of “human rights” is an oxymoron, as proven in the unanimous vote against Honduras in 2009, when its government (remember, legislatures and courts are also “the government” along with the executive, in republics) did the right thing and constitutionally removed a dictator and auto-coup president (Manuel Zelaya). And as proven in the chairmanship of their human rights advocacy organization going to Sudan, the genocidal regime that massacred two million Christians in South Sudan before the world took notice –of Darfur.

Libertarians know that trade without coercion is the path to prosperity for the most people possible and is best for the poor.

My beef with the novel is that almost all the speculation about Christians is the post-Tribulation “theocracy” stereotype. There are all too many of them today that feed that stereotype, and there is a Christian media establishment lock-down similar to the leftist lock-down on most traditional media. But there would be millions of unsung Christians that would be more visible in such disasters by rushing to help the hurting. They are more than the unfair caricature often painted out there. The obsession with the Torquemada type is a denial mechanism to divert from the Mother Theresa types and the Doctor Livingston types.

Another common flaw in almost all post-apocalyptic novels is the subtle idea in the background that civilization can only be “saved” by some political authority.

But Ron Paul has made Christian libertarians much more visible. We are nothing like Ayn Rand, who carried a brutal bitterness throughout her life apparently against God, and blaming God for the devil’s handiwork. And an Ayn Rand libertarian might well be in practice more like a castle feudalist in the kind of context of a post-Daybreak world.

The book is impoverished for that but John Barnes is a pretty good writer, in my opinion, communicating things as he sees them. To me his writing is more engaging than Clarke’s or Asimov.

The main flaw in almost all post-apocalyptic novels is the subtle idea in the background that civilization can only be “saved” by some political authority.

My promise to Newtown parents: Defend the right to defend the children

I got a well-meaning email from a friend that was a pass-it-along plea originating from the new group of parents of the deceased in Newtown. They are asking for a promise to support “common sense solutions that make our community and nation safer from similar acts of violence. This is my reply.

The problem with this theme in the media is that the whole conversation has revolved around the citizen disarmament issue, instead of “What is wrong with us, what is wrong with our society”. I do honor the memory, but I fear that the measures being discussed to supposedly make us safer are only going to make us more vulnerable to much greater dangers. I cannot sign such a promise –these days especially– before I know how it will be used. And by the way, “common sense solutions” of all kinds are all over the air waves and cable channels without end, and most of the time the phrase is associated with the roads of good intentions but that are not well thought-out.

As the son of a late son (who left us in December 2011) and husband of a mother who saved her own son from a kidnapping many years agone when she had to use her own concealed carry, I will remember those victims. My wife is from a country now known for having one of the highest murder rates in the world. A lot of the crime is from the Venezuela-connected traffickers that tried to overthrow the Constitution in 2009 with narco-socialist dictator Manuel Zelaya who was ousted from his illegitimate power grab by court-ordered arrest and a constitutional transfer of power.

In Honduras, the street gangs for awhile were making bombs in their basements, and they make their own home-fashioned weapons that pack a powerful punch. While even the Justice Department-ATF was caught running guns to the drug gangs, weapons are always gone missing from military inventories. You think they want you to know that?

Like I said, I will remember those victims and avoid a repeat. It’s impossible to prevent it 100% but the most effective defense against an incident like the one in Newtown is to do what Israel does, and allow responsible staff and faculty to defend themselves in such a case, and defend their right to do so.

In Israel, there people with arms everywhere, and servicemen and women and those who have arms get jail sentences if they do not keep them on their person at all times. A granny stopped a shoot-up at a mall once by firing back.

These parents do want to stop the senseless killings. The shooter chose to go to a gun-free zone instead of a police station or a shooting range where people go for target practice. The shooter in Aurora avoided seven other theaters in his area, including one much closer to his home, and went to the one theater that bans firearms from it premises.

In that theater there was at least one active serviceman who took the bullet (and died) for his girlfriend. If he had been able to have his protection with him, he may have been able to save more than his girlfriend. There was at least one former serviceman there too, who could not shoot back.

At Fort Hood, the theater where that one occurred was full of guys that knew how to use theirs, but were prohibited from carrying them inside.

The kidnapper had made his threat and was walking away with my wife’s oldest son from the bus stop, a child at the time, and my wife pulled out her own and pointed it and that was the end of the kidnapping.

Another Navy man I met once helped his black buddy protect the grocery store the buddy’s Mom owned during a Liberty City riot in Miami. Both of them were on the roof with their equipment.

But aside from the personal scale, or even the scale of a school, consider that the worst thing that could happen to a child is what happened to tens of millions of children along with their parents around the world in the 20th century in the months after laws were passed and enforced that disarmed those victims. Armenians in Turkey; Ukrainians in the Soviet Union; Jews, Gypsies, handicapped, dissident Christians in Germany, professionals and half the population in Cambodia, and sixty million Chinese. Not to mention the gun laws in the United States that banned ownership by blacks and mulattos in the South during and after slavery days, and the disarming of Indian tribes.

More permits and restrictions on ownership: NONE would have stopped the Newtown killer

December 15, 2012

NONE of those stupid laws that require permits for possession to keep them out of the hands of unstable personalities would have ever stopped this brutal and evil massacre in Newtown, Connecticut. They were not his own guns! This is the wild suspension of logic that comes out in this discussion!

Robbers can steal guns, and they sometimes clear out entire gun shops. Even with a total ban would only make guns that much more valuable, their price in the gray and black markets would skyrocket. Think military arsenals, and think Fast and Furious.

And think something else, from one of the most important incidents that led to the build-up of SWAT teams in almost every major police department in the country.

In 1997 two robbers entered a Bank of America branch in Los Angeles shooting their “illegally modified fully automatic” AKMs and an AR-15 rifle. They held the entire bank hostage long enough to gather their loot, but when they exited the bank to start their getaway they were met by dozens of LAPD police officers.

The shootout lasted hours. The story splashed the front page of newspapers across the country. A profusion of prose was written about it.

In one of the most untold details of the story, though, was that the weapons those two robbers carried were not only illegal for them to carry, they were Chinese weapons bought on the black market.

There is not one law in the United States that can stop that. The Mexican cartels get most of their weapons from sources outside the United States except when the Obama-Holder Justice Department makes sure they get them. The two most ferocious modern street gangs in the United States and anywhere, MS-13 and 18, make their own mini-bazookas.

When ex-dictator Manuel Zelaya made plans for a comeback, his collaborators in the capital city were using an old tooling shop used for teaching, to make weapons, while the Chavez-Zelaya operatives were training a handful of well-paid “volunteers” to train for a core guerrilla group. Thank God that some 85 percent of Hondurans were not so stupid as to fall for the demagoguery at least at that time, and thank God for the valiant and brave Honduran press and their courageous reporters who braved the assassinations their colleagues suffered at the hands of those government power freaks who want to shut the mouths of lovers of freedom.

Gun laws are not for the criminals or the criminal gangs, in the end. There are lots of well-intentioned people who think guns are the problem, but there are social power engineers who know that a freely armed citizenry can shoot back.

Like Solzhenitsyn said, the Stalinist Secret Police forces would have been a lot more reluctant if the citizens had fought back en masse and protected each other. Those days are coming, no doubt, to America.

The fight will be blamed by the perpetrators and dividers on the freedom-loving citizens, on rednecks, on Christians, on “the right”, on the militias, and incidents like the one in Newtown will be used as an excuse to make the streets more dangerous for the people and to convert citizens into subjects of the regime.

A false flag operation is not beyond their moral stature, it’s been done before, in the United States. The USS Miami in Cuba, the Gulf of Tonkin incident near Vietnamese waters, WMD’s in Iraq, and there are more.
