Gbagbo and Chavez

Correction: Please read below in this orange font:

It seems that Ivory Coast President Laurent Gbagbo,and Hugo Chavez are tyrants allegedly -manipulating and illegally seizing and controlling governmental powers. Perhaps, people are vulnerable to get sick by power. Venezuela’s multibillion dollar oil annual income would be too much for mercenary Hugo Chavez to give up easily. I wonder if Chavez believes his own disinformation and lies. Chavez is building his own empire, and calls other imperialists.

The grave situation concerning Ambassadors Larry Palmer and Bernardo Alvarez is pathetic. Chavez like a spoiled rotten individual throws tantrums at will, insults everyone, and when someone speaks the truth the infamous individual freaks out.

The following links are to U.S. State Department’s daily press briefing dated December 29, 2010, discussing the diplomatic chaos in Venezuela, and the news of the ambassadors’ recall.

Even after passing the new broadcasting law censoring insults, Chavez continues to insult Venezuelan citizens. On December 28 during a well-deserved “cacelorazo” against Chavez he proceeded to tell citizens during a seizing of the networks' broadcast “"Toquen cacerolas escuálidos de pacotilla y háganse la idea de que así tumbarán a este Gobierno". Chavez must be mentally ill.

Following up on the passing of former Venezuelan democratic President Carlos Andrés Pérez, the following articles are reflections from Ambassadors Adolfo Taylhardat and Diego Arria. They both served in CAP’s administration.

Chavez may be upset after learning that China was paying as little as $5 per barrel for Venezuelan oil and then selling it elsewhere at a “sizable” profit as reported by The Wall Street Journal, and the court order against CITGO as reported by the New York Post.

There is an email circulating clarifying that the CITGO court order as reported by the New York Post is incorrect. Attorneys from Arnold & Porter representing Chavez claim that the order is under consideration.

The Real Banana Republic Leader


Dear Journalists,

In memory of Carlos Andrés Pérez, former democratic
President of Venezuela (1974-79 and 1989-93).

Hugo Chavez seems to continue to lead with deception. Just a few days ago, as previously reported, Chavez is trying under heavy opposition to take over 20,000 hectares of land from the south of Lake Maracaibo to allegedly use to build housing for the victims of floods. However, report from agronotas explain that Chavez had signed agreements with Russia to grow bananas for export. "En cuanto al banano, una empresa mixta ruso venezolano se instalará en Venezuela para la explotación de 20.000 hectáreas . Ese plátano irá directo a Rusia, que es un alto consumidor pero no puede producirlo.”

The agronotas report also explains that the recent expropriation of Hato Piñero from Venezuelan farmers has been given as a gift to Lybia.

Any one who has studied Venezuelan history has read about dictator Juan Vicente Gomez who gave oil production to the United States taking only a small percentage of benefits mainly because at the time there were no Venezuelan citizens with oil production knowledge. However, at this time, many Venezuelans are educated, and what Hugo Chavez seems to be doing is only a major abuse of power.

Venezuelans are hostages of Hugo Chavez who is operating disregarding democracy, and the will of the Venezuelan majority.

Venezuelans need the aid from the International Court of Justice, and world leaders, to resolve abuse of power in Venezuela and restore democracy.
