They went ahead of me.
They always surprise me…
But the accusation for the CIA will come sooner or later...
They will even talk of a “pajarito” that was filmed in a video, accidentally wearing a "franela" (polo shirt) will a front slogan like: “Tenemos con que" or a similar RCTV slogan. The only thing that one does not imagine is the date of the accusation, but not doubt it will happen.
Write it down it…

500 guards for a few days…Previously I referred in this blog how poorly organized and insufficient is the control of delinquency in the districts that surround Petare. Immediately, after that post happened the slaughter of the bakery and the government just inaugurated a sport field in a demagogic act where they offered what shows the front page the official newspaper "Ultimas Noticias".
Little and behind schedule...The official reaction can be described as poor since the G.N. are also people of bad habits towards the civil population and therefore they will not touch their heart and will not win their confidence, which is the main function of the block police one proposes. Sadly, incapacity crushes the government and kills its voters…
The other information is a video set from a Spanish TV show with a rare visit of a Spanish journalist to North Korea., The 8 pieces of video of YouTube, can be watched at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z3Z9ukkWvzE
In my opinion both pieces of information are complementary, opportune and may be truthful, with a good aproximation to what I intuit will be the next two stations of the bolivarian train drived by "the light of the Venezuelan revolution..."

In this post the word fraud is related to the use of a reform to write a NEW constitution. Most articles, including democratic basic principles, will be restricted, erased or re-written without the public discussion and participation the present constitution (the best in the world 7 years ago) requires for such a deep change in the constitutional text. It is definetively a simple reform. Read Mr. Escarrá list and make your own mind. In a future post, I will show the diferences between the requirements of the Intermaerican Democratic Charter and the new constitutional text leaked to the press.
Constitutionalist Hermann Escarra gave a press conference to outline the changes the Commission for Constitutionla Reform will present to President Chavez. Esacrra claims to have a copy of the document (from his brother Carlos?) He has made the following observations:
The fundamental principles of the Constitution are outlined in the first 9 articles but are contained throughout the document. He mentions, as an example, Art. 19. which prohibits discrimination, to change it would require a Constituent Assembly because it is a fundamental right given to people. The same applies to articles like 152, which gives equality to all states, Art. 299 on social justice and democratization of the economic system or 339 on when the Government can declare a state of emergency.
Thus, even if the first nine articles were not being violated, this would not imply that a Constitutent Assembly is not needed. On the changes that will be proposed, he notes the following, which I have shortened, to note the most significant ones:On the Political division of the Republic:The Government creates communal cities and territories, special federal territories and the Head of State may at any time and by decree change the political organization of the States and municipalities without the people voting on it.

While he closes television stations and persecutes journalists and students, the venezuelan president declares himself a democrat like Abraham Lincoln. From Military Historical Museum he declared with its very washed face that “the new venezuelan” socialist model will be developed “on ethical bases, moral, social, political, geographic and economic…”
If one reads with care it can be stated that property, is accepted "like a fact" and not "like a right" and only for the property of perecible goods and for production but strictly for personal activity. A person who acquires a vehicle can not rent it to a third person to work like a taxi driver. That is considered exploitation of man by man.
"... when the planning system pays attention to a centralized the economy, the reform indicates that it is the planning of a socialist model... there will be expropiables goods and indemnification by means of an administrative (nonjudicial) decision and that is very serious. Also the confiscación of goods is admitted when there is "an economic activity that "attempts against the socialist model"...
“The preeminence of the collective interests over the individual interests, the limitation by the State of all means of economic production and the creation of a centralized planning system to be able to say without incurring militantismo, that whatever it has read a book of economic history, knows that responds to a leninista Marxist model like previous transit to the communist society.

According to Cadena Global: “The president affirmed that the bishops “walk lost” when they accuse the government of going towards a marxist-leninist system” “… he called Sunday to abandone the top of the Catholic Church and asked his followers to hold to the theology of liberation.
"The bishops who criticize my government “are in favor of the wrong way and lost their way to the Lord"...“I call the true Christians, all true catholics. The Catholic Church is not of the bishops, we are those that really believe in Christ, is the Church of Christ, is the liberating Church. We are in favor of the theology of liberation, the way to the revolution with Christ…”
The president of Venezuela, Hugo Chavez, reiterated today that his Socialist Party “will not adopt the marxism-leninism, because that is a dogma that already demodé” and that he must take step sto the create “our own doctrine…” “We have great faith in Christ Redemptor. Our socialism must be Christian, bolivarian, not marxist-leninist…” “ What if the Communist Party continues making the apology of the marxism-leninism? Good, for them! But I am not going to figtht with them, but my PS will not take the flags of marxism-leninism, because that is their dogma…”
Chavez more rapid than a ray… Erased the "UNIQUE" word of the “the new” party name and now the leninist are they,"those of the PCV", not me!!!
Thanks, Baduel, for the favors received…
-- Voy a "terminar con la dispersión facilitada por la actual división política administrativa... que fomenta la formación de caudillos regionales, con métodos ajenos al proyecto de integración nacional..."
Only me, me, me...
Bad luck for Hugo Chavez this time!!!
But for aspiring life dictators like Chavez and Morales Castro is an endless fountain of useful advice. They visit the ailing Castro to squeeze last minute recommendations which could allow them to learn "how to" disappear some political adversaries, kill a few and nullify the rest with a minimum of consequences for them...

William Lara threatens Media Law will be reformed again.
JESSE CHACON BACKSPEDALS
The Law is just for the cable operators.
PRESIDENT OF CABLE OPERATORS
Technically impossible to get "Chavez chains on all TV channels", copyright agreements and contracts do not allow, we are already transmitting all state owned channels, public can watch chains in them if they want.
PRESENT MEDIA LAW ONLY REQUIRES 15% OF LOCAL CHANNELS
Including local channels, at home I could receive up to 16 Venezuelan local channels and today there are only 13. Government still has the chance to dedicate ONE CHANNEL in every cable operator grill to have HUGO CHAVEZ speeches on air permanently (Like the Big Brother of "1984" famous novel) and allow the public to watch the speeches if they want or not.
WHAT THEY SHOULD NOT INTENT
Government should not stop all the channels at the same time just to get Hugo Chavez as the only image on the air, because WE THE PEOPLE have a contract with each cable operator which allows us to watch whatever channel we want with no government intervention.
Any other decision by Hugo Chavez would be an unjustified egomaniac, illegal and undemocratic imposition...
Datanalisis (Julio) Leon considers that between the chavistas "more of 70% it is against any violation to the rights of private property. 80% of the officialism are against using to Cuba as example and more than 60% of the chavistas were against the exit of the RCTV air.
Hinterlaces (May) In interviews made between the 11 and the 17 of May to 885 Venezuelans in several states of the country, sample that 80% are in discord with the RCTV closing.
2001.com (March) President of Hinterlaces, Oscar Schemel, showed that an important rejection to the idea of a model of socialist government exists in the country and only 33% endorse it.
Union Radio (February) Oscar Schemel, director of Hinterlaces: 41% of the Venezuelans consider in which the performance of Chavez is good or very good… 61% reject reform constitutional,75% Rejects the closing of RCTV; 38% say that its management is bad or very bad,43% reject the socialism that the president raises and 44% think that its management harms the country.
These numbers allow to infer that the country is divided 50% and 50% in favor and against the president and the constitutional reform is far from being approved already by the necessary majority, unless the independent voters decide to do a harakiri by not going to vote, as have always done since 1998.
Here I leave this reflection to them…

It happens that accidentally I saw the live transmission of the “barretada” yesterday from the UCV Olympic Stadium. Barreto, a civil employee, a mayor of over grown ego, threatening a person of the public, treating to rob his cell phone, applying him corporal punishment in public, humiliating him, as if the citizen was his slave.
The mayor -for shame of all the natives of Caracas- walks accompanied by a herd of young men (if they are not bodyguard, what are they) that attack the indicated victim (at random?) and to two foreign visitors who stepped and declared -without fear- to the excellent SPORT journalist of Globovisión. Both said that they did not know “the fat person in rare dress” and its foreign nationality did not prevent that they were also strike and threatened.
For more offense, the mayor dedicated itself to declare later to mass media that he “was attacked”, although he had to jump about 10 lines of seats to reach “the aggressor”, who turned out to be a well mannered university professor and two solvent seat neighbors. One, an Uruguayan journalist and the other a mature Mexican citizen, who protested that one of the Mayor “valet boys” struck him the head with no justification. He said he was one visitor who came to Venezuela to see foot-ball and did not know “the fat person those rare clothes that attacked us…”
Not happy with the clownish act, the Mayor called the official VTV to begin to create an official version with an unconnected but revolutionary story, to the taste of his twisted psique typical of all Fascist-Leninist over egoed civil servants, without knowledge that the event had been transmitted live and directly by a television channel. When he found out that detail, the Mayor changed his message and he began to lucubrate with a plot or conspiracy that placed “early” TV cameras at “the exact” place where he was going to be at that hour.
What journalist is this that does not know that in a continental sport event, with more than 2,000 international registered correspondents, somebody was to be there with a camera; without counting the tens of cellular phones that must have filmed or photographed the lamentable event from 10 different angles.
How sad is that today the same untruthful version of our wild Mayor appears in the webpage of a national official radio transmitter like an official truth.
With no shame the web page relates that the Great Mayor “was attacked” in the Olympic Stage of Caracas. “Mayor Juan Barreto denounced an irregular situation that he lived Saturday in the Olympic Stadium at the university city, within the framework of the party between Mexico and Uruguay.
The intellectual phantoms that govern at this moment in Venezuela seem to ignore that “this dictatorship”, communist and fascist at the same time, arrived behind schedule, since today average communication technologies do not allow to create “official truths” with impunity.
Situation that would explain the eternal fight of similar authoritarian governments with media in countries like Cuba, Bolivia, Ecuador, Belarus, China and other “friends” of the Bolivarian Revolution…
Poor devils, surpassed by reality and history long ago and do not know it yet…

In the second poll he walks by the clouds. Daily Ultimas Noticias says that 71.1% approves the management of the "great leader" and according to the survey 53.3% thinks that the situation of the country has improved.
Perhaps the reality is in some intermediate point…
If the venezuelan constitucionsl king and his electoral tribunal allow it, in a few months you are going to have the posibility of deciding how you want to live in the next decades. Before making a decision take a time to read today EL PAIS work on Raul Castros Cuba. Later no need to say you were deceived...

I do not remember when it was the first time that Chavez spoke of reducing the number states or provinces. I believe it was in the Bolivarian Alternative (Giordani’s Fat Book) during the electoral campaign of 1998.
This proposal is no more that a simple copy of the regionalization plan of president Caldera; badly copied of course, like everything carried out by the “nightmare team” that surrounds the great leader.

He considers he is a position similar to that of the church, a foreign government, the military or some comfortable entrepreneurs, etc. But polarization no longer is excuse to not reporting what it is really happening in Venezuela. If people shout against Chavez in a just inaugurated stadium of soccer, something must be happening. If a violent group financed by government attacks media or journalists that can not be silenced. If government spends without measure and turns the currency into garbage that must be necessarily said.
True, TV channels must give chance the government to defend itself, but cannot silence everything with the excuse that those complaining are “agents of Yankee imperialism” and many other defamatory offenses.
Mr. Cisneros, Democracy is well defined in the Inter-American Charter, any deviation from it must be denounced by the media so that the population (that in the end is the “owner” radio electric spectrum used by the media) is not confined progressively until there is not Democracy left to defend.Media which do not defend Democracy violate the Constitution and should not be allowed to operate, should not exist. Just like one which incites a civil war, racism o sexism.
On that, Cisneros cannot be neutral…

... the Central Bank exdirector criticized the measures taken recently by the government to try to reduce the inflation, because in his opinion he considers that the government will not be able to fulfill the goal to control it and he esteems that being moderate it will reach not less than 15 percents...
On top of all that, Daily TalCual published yesterday a very sad porfolio or summary which deserves a reading...
This scene violates the rights of us all. Not only the right to life of the criminal, but the right of relatives and friends to offer support and defence to the delinquent. These rights were denied by the taliban members of the venezuelan goverment.
Finally, the neighbours of the prison or police centre do not have to witness that wild spectacle of violation of all the human rights consecrated in the Venezuelan Constitution. However uggly criminal acts can be, we must not allow that the population gets used to accepting arbitrary and illegal capital punishments…

I do not believe that the guy has the required cuture to know and understands the history of Ethiopia and its revolution. Perhaps one of the Castro brothers told it to him. But in Ethiopia the revolution began very moderate and in successive coup d'etats and some homicides it was possible for the comunists to impose the most extremist trends of socialism.
Later other events happened, but that is another history. That mechanism was repeated in the island of Granada but norteamericans invaded in the 80s and stopped the process. I have the imprsión that "our" gorila gorilizes more every day, more with the objective of staying in power and to save his life.
I am speculating but the time will say if I am right…
Pro-government daily"Ultimas Noticias" editor prints and signs a "rumor" in his OpEd page. Disrgarding all evidence he tells his readers that "rich" venezuelans want bridges to fall and terrrorist to attack. The guy must have gone mad, nuts, crazy... loco!!!
Here it is the original text in spanish: "En algunas urbanizaciones del Este y del sureste de Caracas... la misma gente que "deseaba" que los trabajos del viaducto se retrasaran, que se produjera un derrumbe o una explosión, que cargaban la bandera al revés y que todavía "apuestan a un acto de terrorismo" en la Copa América..."

In a change of direction the church is denouncing the totalitarian fascist-leninist future hiden in the constitutional reform. The church asks for an open dialogue, transparency and respect.
"... los temas ventilados por la opinión pública como contenidos de los cambios constitucionales y, sobre todo, la forma misma del proceso de su elaboración, que no acoge suficientemente el espíritu de participación exigido por la Constitución, arrojan serias dudas sobre el talante democrático de la reforma constitucional. Diferentes decisiones oficiales, como el lema impuesto “Patria, socialismo o muerte” y declaraciones del Presidente y de voceros del gobierno hacen suponer que esta reforma se dirige hacia el establecimiento de un sistema socialista fundado en la teoría y la praxis del marxismo-leninismo. La pobreza, el desempleo, la falta de vivienda, la carencia en los hospitales, los deficientes servicios públicos, niños de la calle, ancianos sin atención, continúan siendo verdaderos problemas sociales. Otro problema es la violencia, que en nuestro país ha crecido exageradamente: los delitos contra la vida y la propiedad, el sicariato o asesinato por encargo, los secuestros, la extorsión conforman un cuadro de inseguridad, que especialmente en las grandes ciudades y en la frontera con Colombia, ha alcanzado niveles alarmantes..."
The church authorities reject the marxist-leninist character of the "chavist" project for Venezuela. In an "Exhortación Apostólica de la Plenaria de la Conferencia Episcopal Venezolana" the church points out that "no respect, no dialogue" and that "the president has not right to insult anyone..."

Minister of Interior made fun of the church "exhortación"...
