  • asombra: Is it me, or does Gabo look retarded? Or is it just a certain kind of ugly? Cretin.

  • asombra: Dilma can’t help it, you see. It’s just a Latrine thing.

  • asombra: Elemaza, I sympathize and understand completely. Just seeing their faces is viscerally repugnant.

  • asombra: Such pretty people, the Kennedys; such packaging. No doubt that was helpful and/or profitable for some, but it was hardly useful...

The Cubanization of Venezuela: Cuba creates 5-million Venezuelan voters out of thin air

The Cubanization of Venezuela did not begin with the farcical elections that took place earlier this month. It has been a long and arduous process that began many years ago.

To ensure the dictatorial regime of Hugo Chavez would continue to be "reelected," Cuba's government embarked on a mission to create Venezuelan voters out of thin air who would "vote" for their puppet, Hugo Chavez.

Joan Antoni Guerrero Vall reporting at Punt de Vista (my translation):

Cuba increased Venezuela's census by 5-million people whose identities cannot be confirmed

Former adviser for the Chavez government, Anthony Daquin, who is now exiled in the U.S., has revealed that Cuba increased Venezuela's census by five million people whose identities now cannot be certified or audited. The engineer told NTN24 that in 2002, the Chavez government decided to eliminate the Department of Citizen Identification, which at the time was "the only entity that could guarantee impartiality" in the election process. According to this expert, Chavez promoted the automation of the electoral process in order to have immediate information on election results. When the Department of Citizen Identification was eliminated, citizen data was sent to Cuba where a database was created at the University of Computer Science (UCI).

A year and a half later, the voter registration rolls returned to Venezuela with five million more voters. "Cuba is the administrator of Venezuela's citizen identification and voting systems. The databases are all created at UCI in Havana," Daquin explained. When the data was sent to Cuba in 2002, "17-million was the base number of citizens and when the data returned, the base number became 22 million." After seeing the voter rolls swell by 5 million in just a year and a half, it began to raise suspicions. "It all seems suspicious because all those citizens added electronically impact election results, but we cannot audit them to find out if those citizens actually exist or if they have complied with the requirements needed to be able to vote."

    Great photo. Wouldn't you want someone who looks like Hugo (or Fidel) ru(i)n(n)ing YOUR life?

    This is further proof that there are no fair and Democratic elections in Venezuela and the opposition has no other choice than to fight and shed their blood for power.

    Unfortunately the Latrine-Mentality of the Venezuelan opposition cannot admit to this reality. Plus it does not help that they're led by gutless, castrated leaders like Capriles, then you'll understand why they cannot remove the Chavistas from power.

    The Cuban people were extremely stupid for putting Fidel Castro in power back in 1959...

    The Venezuelans are beyond stupid for putting Hugo Chavez in power back in 1998...

    Si fuera en castrozuela solamente....
    A jury in South Bend, Indiana has found that fraud put President Obama and Hillary Clinton on the presidential primary ballot in Indiana in the 2008 election. Two Democratic political operatives were convicted Thursday night in the illegal scheme after only three hours of deliberations. They were found guilty on all counts.

    Former longtime St. Joseph County Democratic party Chairman Butch Morgan Jr. was found guilty of felony conspiracy counts to commit petition fraud and forgery, and former county Board of Elections worker Dustin Blythe was found guilty of felony forgery counts and falsely making a petition, after being accused of faking petitions that enabled Obama, then an Illinois Senator, to get on the presidential primary ballot for his first run for the White House.

    Morgan was accused of being the mastermind behind the plot.

    According to testimony from two former Board of Election officials who pled guilty, Morgan ordered Democratic officials and workers to fake the names and signatures that Obama and Clinton needed to qualify for the presidential race. Blythe, then a Board of Elections employee and Democratic Party volunteer, was accused of forging multiple pages of the Obama petitions

    Lynx, so then what happened? So it was fraud. But where were the Americans who freely elected this dangerous person and then, worse, reelected him?

    I believe there was fraud that got the results of 2012, but still, almost half of Americans freely wanted this guy to win again. And that includes a lot of my intelligent friends. So who cares if it was fraud then? As long as Americans think things are just fine now, isn't a bit too late to worry about fraud then? Where was this jury in 2008 or 2009?

    Freedom complains about Venezuela freely electing Chavez and then not standing up to the powers that be now. What about this country? Who is standing up to this administration in this great country?

    I despair.
