Terrorist being taken away by National Guard.

[The Devil's Excrement]

The Venezuelan Nazi-onal Guard (Guardia Nazi-onal), is getting a bad name for itself, as is the DISIP, that horrible honor in Venezuela was previously limited to infamous government strong arms like the Seguridad Nacional of the Perez-Jimenez dictatorhip (directed by Pedro Estrada) and the DIGEPOL of the Romulo Betancourt years (directed by none other than Carlos Andres Perez).

Pompeyo Marquez today reminded the Vice-President, José Vicente Rangel, of a time when another, supposedly democratic government, killed a great venezuelan Alberto Lovera.

"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains set lightly upon you; and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen."
-- Samuel Adams

Chavez ruling triggers protests. Violence erupts in cities across Venezuela after the president's opponents fail to force a vote on his future. [BBC News | News Front Page | UK Edition]

Bad reporting. There is no mention of the OAS and Carter Center position and the numbers are wrong. Another victory for Chávez international propaganda machine.

For lighter moment, Venezuelan protesters on MSN Messenger.

David on the petition.


A law student named David Forestell wrote this post at a Venezuela forum. David is Canadian, studying law in London right now, he lived in Caracas for nine months in 2002 and 2003, teaching English. I thought his post was quite good and asked him for permission to reproduce it here, as the view of an outsider:


If the CNE wishes to find out why forms were filled out with the same
handwriting they should interview their observers that signed the form
to approve the process.

In every society retroactive law is, effectively, not law at all.  That
people were asked by the CNE to follow a certain procedure, and are now
being forced to account for their signatures because they CNE no longer
likes the process they approved is absurd.

The important thing to remember, Javier, is that this is not the actual
vote.  It is an attempt to determine whether there exists sufficient
desire to activate a recall.  Clearly there is.  To suggest that a fraud
so massive that for every two signatures the third was a fraud is
absurd.  How was this pulled off?  How did no one notice?  How can the
OAS, CNE, Carter Centre, MVR observers and VTV all have been so blind?

Does this continual delay seem credible to anyone, including chavistas?

To me it seems as though the only possible way in which someone could
continue to defend the government would be to turn a blind eye and
accept any abuse in the name of cheating because the means must justify
the ends.  Whatever they may be.
