Carter’s Chavezuela

There isn’t other person most noble, Nobel, and guilty of what is happening in Venezuela than President Carter. I am not denying Venezuelans responsibility; we are by far the biggest responsible of all. But, if a list identifying foreigners (to Venezuela) characters, that are somehow responsible, was created, President Carter will be ranked number 1.

President Carter, Carter Center Foundation, you are bloody responsible. You should be scared, pretty soon we will be able to proof your support to this dictator.

Carter’s Chavezuela

Leadership: As unrest over freedom’s end grows in Venezuela, out comes Jimmy Carter’s Center, expressing “concern.” That’s rich. Carter played a leading role in trashing the press there, making dictatorship possible.

Jimmy Carter often wins praise as an international mediator, but it was precisely his mediation in two events in August 2004 that led to the turmoil now seen across Venezuela.

El mono peligroso

Razón tiene el Sr. Londoño, si alguien debería estar preocupado (fuera de los Venezolanos), son los Colombianos. Después de todo nuestro mono revolucionario sabe contar, y sabe que con Brasil ni de vaina.

Por Fernando Londoño Hoyos

 

Los monos han ofrecido generoso material de estudio para científicos y pensadores. Ortega y Gasset fundó todo su pensamiento social en la contemplación de gentiles simios en una jaula. Su ir y venir, sus saltos y carreras, sus caras extravagantes, ora contemplativas, ora risueñas o agresivas, su incapacidad absoluta para permanecer en estado de quietud, suscitaron el “Ensimismamiento y Alteración” con que empieza “El Hombre y la Gente”, obra clave del pensamiento orteguiano.

 

Tanta fatiga inútil, tanta atención para nada, tanta volubilidad, tanta acción inesperada, nos hacen recordar probables antepasados angustiados, en guardia, en permanente alteración, volcados hacia afuera e incapaces de refugiarse en ese “intus” que constituye el yo o la personalidad, tan difícilmente labrada en milenios de lenta evolución.

Belafonte and Sheehan love Chávez, not Venezuela

By Gustavo Coronel

 

July 9, 2006 | As a senior Venezuelan I have seen my country and my people living in much better times than today. Therefore, I feel sad when I listen to the likes of Cindy Sheehan and Harry Belafonte speak of their love for Hugo Chávez. On the July 5 edition of MSNBC’s Hardball with Chris Matthews, guest host and MSNBC White House correspondent  Norah O’Donnell interviewed Cindy Sheehan. Sheehan said that “Hugo Chávez in not anti-American” and that she’d rather live under Chávez than Bush. Sheehan cites the aid of Chávez to New Orleans’ Katrina victims and the oil subsidies to the U.S. “poor” as examples of Chávez humanity. She was in Venezuela back in January where she  kissed Chávez and appeared totally under his spell. In her enthusiasm, she mentioned on Hardball that Chávez had already been elected eight times. In fact, he was elected in 1999 and  re-elected two years later (comfortably running against his partner in the failed 1992 coup d’état,  Francisco Arias Cárdenas, now Ambassador to the U.N.) and survived a controversial presidential recall referendum in 2004, validated by  Jimmy Carter but denounced as fraudulent by millions of Venezuelans.

Posted 2/9/2006
Freedom: Does a woman who accepts America’s money to build democracy deserve 16 years in prison? Only to a brutal dictator. But that doesn’t excuse Congress, NOW and Jimmy Carter for having nothing to say. Right under the news radar, a politicized court is about to throw Venezuelan democracy campaigner Maria Corina Machado into prison for “treason.” Her so-called crime: Accepting a $54,000 grant from U.S. Congress’ National Endowment for Democracy.
