Death of Hugo Chavez could
set off shock waves across region

Telegraph [U.K.], by Philip Sherwell

Original Article

Posted By:PageTurner, 1/6/2013 11:19:48 AM

The orchestra played and loyal lawmakers erupted in adulatory applause as Hugo Chavez invoked Fidel Castro and Jesus Christ as his revolutionary role models. His right hand raised, the fiery Venezuelan leader echoed the famous call to arms of his Cuban mentor. "Fatherland, socialism or death," he proclaimed, then added with a typical flourish: "I swear by Christ, the greatest socialist in history." That was six years ago as "El Commandante" was sworn in for his third term as president and blew kisses to rose petal-tossing crowds

Invoking Christ as an advocate for large and intrusive government may be effective but it is hard to find any evidence for it in the biblical record.

Invocation of our Savior´s name by Chavez was meant to hide its more frequent usage, as in, "Jesus Christ, why is he destroying our country?".

Obama provokes similar usage of the Lord´s name.

There may be shock waves but the world will be a better place without Hugo Chavez, or any other wannabe socialist dictator. People like him stifle the best in mankind and might as well be ruling an ant colony.

FTA: The family´s prosperity flourished with their political power. Their small chicken and pig farm is now a sprawling state-of-the art ranch. And in Barinas, they live in a luxury mansion in a high-walled compound in the most exclusive neighbourhood and travel in convoys of heavily-armed SUVs

It´s funny how socialists always live like the people they claim to despise.

The current pro communist movement,today,under Obama is quite fascinating considering that we fought the spread of it like hell in the last century.

From what I´ve heard under the Cloward and Piven strategy,everybody makes $53,000 after the government is declared bankrupt.The problem with this idea is it´ll kill individual incentive and we´ll be stuck in the same rut,like Cuba since the 50´s.Obviously the ruling class elites would be exempt from the salary cap.

The world is full of suckers,in fact I know of one who fell for the Nigerian email scam.Look at all the Madoff suckers.This guy had people on a waiting list begging to be part of his investments.They never heard of something that sounds too good to be true.

You mean ol´ Hugo is still kicking... I´m planning an old Irish wake party in honor of his passing (like my dear departed Irish momma used to talk about ... lots of food and drink; almost worth having someone die for the party).

Reminds me of an old Wizard of Id cartoon. Rodney, the King´s stooge was on the street interviewing the peasants. He asks one of them, "What do you think of the King?"

The peasant bows his head and says, "He was a wonderful man, and I´m sorry he´s dead."

Rodney tells the peon that, no, he´s not dead, I´m just doing a popularity poll.

The peasant then says, "Well, I wish he were dead."

Nothing inspires religion and God quicker than the smell of sulphur for these athiests, liberals, baby killer progressives, communists, socialists democrats.

Chavez, who truly has HATED God and supplanted Him in his nation, has never failed to mention God since his diagnosis. As things got worse, Christ became a focal point in his conversation.

He is dead. Only machines are keeping his soul less miserable corpse going.

Expect that God hater Nancy Pelosi to do the same when her turn comes up. In the end they all know exactly where they are going but can´t help continue being demonic in this plane. Ultimately, everybody goes home. Chavez is going to his home. Check that, he is home.

In Venezuela, As Elsewhere,
Socialism Comes With Shortages
Investor´s Business Daily, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: PageTurner- 3/22/2014 11:10:57 AM     Post Reply
Hemisphere: Venezuela´s price and currency controls have wrought what they always wreak: monster shortages. And it stinks, literally, with toilet paper, diapers, soap and deodorant joining drugs on the list. That shutoff from global standards is what prevents willing buyers from acquiring goods from abroad, the source of 80% of Venezuela´s consumer staples. No foreign currency, no purchases. Further down the line, price controls have driven more shortages as costs to produce in an economy with a 56% inflation rate have made it impossible to turn a profit.

The mother of a 3-year-old boy who was saved just as he tumbled out a third-story window in Burbank said she will "never be able to repay" the couple who cushioned his fall with a box spring mattress. Konrad Lightner and his wife, Jennifer, were carrying their box spring mattress out Sunday when they saw the toddler throw his leg over the window sill, his toys tossed to the ground below. "Once we saw that his leg was going over the window, Jenny called police," Konrad Lightner said in an interview with KTLA-TV. After the boy got out, he clung to a telephone wire outside the window, spurring a split-second decision by the

Geopolitics: So are Vladimir Putin´s actions in Ukraine just self-defense, as he claims, or a sign of a new sort of war with the West? Conclusions of a 19th century contemporary of Alexis de Tocqueville suggest the latter. Back in 1839, around the time political thinker de Tocqueville made his long visit to the U.S. and found an exceptional nation, writing about it in his classic "Democracy in America," another curious Frenchman, the Marquis de Custine, made a similar pilgrimage to Russia. Fully prepared to fall in love with autocratic czarism, de Custine was instead repelled by a harsh tyranny combined with

TIJUANA, Mexico – Mexican activist Elvira Arellano turned herself in on Tuesday to U.S. immigration authorities, whom she will ask – for humanitarian reasons – to be allowed to return to the country from which she was deported in 2007. Accompanied by her two children, the human rights defender crossed the border into the United States along with the fourth group of immigrants from the “Bring Them Home” movement. Arellano, TIME magazine’s Person of the Year in 2006, said she was aware that she could go to federal prison, but she said that is a risk that must be taken to send

Restricted sales of personal

Staple shortages in Venezuela are exacerbating, as mirrored by restricted sales in many stores across the country. The supply of personal care products fails to meet demand. Only one or two brands of a single item can be found on shelves. Similarly, drugs stocks are running low. In a bid to meet demand, pharmacies have also been limiting the sale of certain drugs to only two items per person. Since April 2012, the Central Bank of Venezuela has been reporting shortage of personal care and home cleaning products, which sales are restricted as well. Shortage stems from the price regulations enforced for more than

CARACAS - Venezuela´s foreign minister lambasted U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Friday as a "murderer" fomenting unrest that has killed 28 people in the South American OPEC member nation. Since street demonstrations began against President Nicolas Maduro´s socialist government in early February, Venezuelan officials have been accusing Washington of stirring the country´s worst political troubles in a decade. U.S. officials say Venezuela is using them as a scapegoat, inventing accusations to distract from internal economic and political problems. In the sternest words during the crisis from Washington, Kerry said on Thursday the Venezuela government was using a "terror campaign" to

Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld has said that ´a trained ape´ could do a better job managing American interests in Afghanistan than President Obama. The retired Republican made the insult while doing a phone-in interview for Greta Van Susteren´s Fox News show on Tuesday. He argued that the President made a serious error by failing to negotiate a status forces agreement with Afghan President Hamid Karzai.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) said the fault of struggling to sign up on the Obamacare exchanges didn’t lie with the faulty website, but with the people who weren’t “educated on how to use the Internet.” Explaining the reasoning behind the latest Obamacare delay, Reid said too many people just didn’t know to use their computer properly and needed more time. Apparently, it had nothing to do with the well-documented failings of the website that have embarrassed the White House for months. “We have hundreds of thousands of people who tried to sign up who didn’t get through,” he said.

It never came. Instead, the Leader of the Free World was met with one slow, awkward clap. Question: was MSNBC’s Chris Matthews in the house?

According to the AP-GFK survey released Wednesday, 59 percent disapprove of Obama´s job performance while 41 percent approve. A similar poll released by the news outlet in January found 45 percent approved of him while 53 percent disapproved. Other recent polling has found Obama´s disapproval rating slightly lower, remaining in the low 50s.

The Obama administration is prepared to give prospective Obamacare enrollees another half-month to signup for insurance coverage through the Affordable Care Act website, healthcare.gov, treating the law´s March 31 regulatory deadline as a formality for Americans who claim they tried in earnest to sign up in time.

As the U.S. Supreme Court weighed the constitutionality of a contraception coverage mandate Tuesday morning, a federal appeals court heard a separate legal challenge that could have much more sweeping implications for the future of President Obama´s health care law. And if the oral arguments before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit are any indication, it’s time for the White House to start sweating over a lawsuit that up until now has flown relatively below the radar. At issue in the case are the subsidies that the federal government provides for individuals purchasing insurance through Obamacare. Though the text

On Wednesday, Obama administration officials announced a two week extension in the deadline to enroll in the Affordable Care Act or face a penalty defined as a tax. Asked about this “delay” in the implementation of the ACA on Wednesday, Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) said that there has been no delay. He added that some of the users who experienced problems with the website early on need more time, partially because “people are not educated about how to use the internet.” “There’s no hiccup or delay,” Reid insisted. “We had hundreds of thousands of people who tried to sign up and

On Tuesday night two things happened. 1. A trio of Secret Service agents were sent home from Amsterdam after one was found passed out drunk in a hotel hallway. 2. The Obama Administration announced (another) extension of the enrollment deadline for Obamacare signups. At first glance, these two events have little in common with one another. But, modern politics is all about narratives and storylines. And, both of these events confirm a growing concern from the public about President Obama: That he´s just not up to governing his administration and, by extension, the country, effectively.
