I was just astonished
seeing the attendees at Hugo Chavez’s funeral. Outside of Venezuela’s
neighboring countries’ leaders, there were infamous world leaders like Iran’s Mahmoud
Ahmadinejad, and profane Raul Castro from Cuba. The United States delegation
was formed by Rev. Jesse Jackson, former U.S. Congressman William Delahunt, and
others that may had received free money from Hugo Chavez. Also,
attending were some of the heart loving Chavistas who had been seen in
Washington, D.C. on expensive business trips that regular Venezuelan citizens
Further, out of Hugo Chavez’s four children only two attended
the ceremony. The rumors say that one of his daughters did not agree with the
ceremony’s arrangements, and did not go to the funeral. Who knows what
Question to the journalists who attended the ceremony was Hugo
Chavez already embalmed? Another rumor is that Hugo Chavez died in Cuba on
December 30, and what was brought back to Venezuela was his already embalmed
body. So, the death announcement was a farce. Who knows what happened!
The coffin that Chavistas cried and mourned carrying from the
Military Hospital to the Military Academy was reported empty. A different
coffin with the dictator’s body was at the Military Academy.
There are reports that Hugo Chavez amassed during his time in
office two billion dollars.
As you may know, Venezuelan citizens suffer strict foreign
exchange rules while the Chavistas travel and have access to foreign trade
(Comisión de Administración de Divisas http://www.cadivi.gob.ve/)
France24 reported mostly siding with Hugo Chavez. That is with
the exception of the live broadcast during the funeral where two experts from
each side discussed Hugo Chavez’s domestic violence, anti-semitism, and other infamous
issues. Since France is a socialist government some French citizens think that Venezuela is also socialist.
However, what exists in Venezuela is a dysfunctional socialism where a minority
are loaded with money, and the upper and middle class’ quality of life has
been reduced. This includes shortages of basic foods, and other products.
The worst situation is the violation of the Constitution as
denounced by opposition candidate Henrique Capriles Radonski as reported on my
previous blog posting titled FRAUD.
Henrique Capriles Radonski, Governor of Miranda State,
has denounced fraud by Tribunal Supremo de Justicia (TSJ) (supreme court) on
live television following Hugo Chavez’s funeral.http://globovision.com/articulo/capriles-radonski-hoy-me-siento-obligado-a-hablarle-al-pais
The International Court of Justice, busy at
it is, should make time to prosecute Hugo Chavez’s thugs who survived him for
abuse of power, fraud, and more fraud if the alleged algorithms and open
violation of the vote are true.
Venezuelans need help from world leaders,
and the International Court of Justice, to resolve abuse of power in Venezuela
and restore democracy.
