BREAKING NEWS…

The Real Cuba reports:

June 28 – Honduran president José Manuel Zelaya, an ally of Hugo Chávez and the Castro brothers, was arrested on Sunday morning by soldiers.

Zelaya had pledged to go forward with a referendum on constitutional reform despite the opposition of the Supreme Court, the military, Congress and members of his own party.

Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chávez was behind Zelaya’s illegal referendum.

Zelaya was trying to follow the same tactic used by Chávez and his puppets in Bolivia, Nicaragua and Ecuador of trying to change the constitution to allow them to remain in power for life.

Planes from the Venezuelan Air Force had landed in Honduras to bring all the materials required for Sunday’s referendum, despite the decision by Honduras’ Supreme Court that it was illegal.

Earlier this month, after the OAS met in Honduras and decided to lift the sanctions against the Castro regime, Zelaya was full of praise for the Cuban dictator.

“”Fidel Castro said more than 40 years ago that history would absolve him, and history absolved him,” Zelaya said.

  1. Not to Worry ! Obama will be sending in a special forces unit to instill order ! …

    and reinstate comrade Zelaya :o/ – DOH !

  2. Expect the mainstream media [with the NY Times at the helm] to start a full-fletched campaign complete with countless opinion pieces and editorials about how “democracy” must be restored to Honduras and about what a threat this coup is to the stability of the region and to democracy in Latin America.

  3. Val –

    WH just put out a statement sounding like it’s in support of the Honduran Prez … (think he’s a little ‘worried’?)

    And here we go:

    BreakingNews — Venezuelan president Chavez says he will do “everything necessary” to abort the military coop in Honduras.

  4. drillanwr,
    Jon Lovitz – hysterical! If only freedom could have a chance.
    With a better president, Chavez would not make such threats and the Hondurans would have a better chance.
    Now, I fear tyranny will spread and again Obama will do nothing to stop his “friend” from making that happen.

  5. Per Fox this is the reaction from Obama and H. Clinton
    President Obama said he was “deeply concerned” by Zelaya’s expulsion and U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said the arrest should be condemned.

    “I call on all political and social actors in Honduras to respect democratic norms, the rule of law and the tenets of the Inter-American Democratic Charter,” Obama’s statement read.

    “The action taken against Honduran President Mel Zelaya violates the precepts of the Inter-American Democratic Charter, and thus should be condemned by all,” Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said in a statement Sunday.

    “We call on all parties in Honduras to respect the constitutional order and the rule of law, to reaffirm their democratic vocation, and to commit themselves to resolve political disputes peacefully and through dialogue. Honduras must embrace the very principles of democracy we reaffirmed at the OAS meeting it hosted less than one month ago,” said Clinton.

    Something tells be they’d be telling the Honduran president to respect the Honduran Supreme Court Order if he were right leaning instead of left leaning. There you go, this will mark the media spin..

  6. President Obama:
    “I am deeply concerned by reports coming out of Honduras regarding the detention and expulsion of President Mel Zelaya. As the Organization of American States did on Friday, I call on all political and social actors in Honduras to respect democratic norms, the rule of law and
    the tenets of the Inter-American Democratic Charter. Any existing tensions and disputes must be resolved peacefully through dialogue free from any outside interference.”

    Sec. of State Clinton:
    The action taken against Honduran President Mel Zelaya violates the precepts of the Inter-American Democratic Charter, and thus should be condemned by all. We call on all parties in Honduras to respect the constitutional order and the rule of law, to reaffirm their democratic vocation, and to commit themselves to resolve political disputes peacefully and through dialogue. Honduras must embrace the very principles of democracy we reaffirmed at the OAS meeting it hosted less than one month ago. NOTE: It is very important that this statement makes specific reference to President Zelaya.

  7. Important Updates:

    * Roberto Micheletti has been sworn into office as president by the military coup.
    * OAS countries refuse to recognize him or to negotiate in any form with coup leaders.
    * OAS countries issue calls for the immediate return and reinstatement of President Manuel Zelaya in his legitimate functions.

    Secretary General Insulza reports that Cuban, Nicaraguan and Venezuelan ambassadors attempted to accompany Honduran Foreign Minister when she was forcibly abducted by military coup leaders, but were violently pushed away from the vehicle. They are not being held captive. As others discuss diplomatic actions–clearly needed and appropriate–these ambassadors provided a lesson in real solidarity, by putting their own lives on the line.

    El Congreso Nacional, en cadena de radio y televisión, acaba de leer y aceptar la renuncia de Manuel Zelaya Rosales como Presidente de Honduras, la cual firmó antes de dejar el país y viajar a Costa Rica.

    En un comunicado oficial, la Corte Suprema de Justicia explicó que las Fuerzas Armadas actuaron en base a ley al detener al Presidente de la República y decomisar el material de la encuesta ilegal que pretendía llevar a cabo el Poder Ejecutivo en contra de una orden judicial.

    It wasn’t a coup. It was law enforcement.

  9. Did I misread that ??? (looks closer, oh no I sadly didn’t). Obama is using the OAS to speak on Democracy …. the F#cking OAS that just decided to let Cuba and the Castro brothers back in !!! WTF !!!

    As for this coup, the CNN glitterati will be tripping over themselves by mid week to report on the “ahdowy CIA backed contra death squads that led the coup” …

    maybe I should buy a brochure for Tahiti … or hell head to Buenos Aires ala Sanford style.

  10. Mojito,
    You are right. Obama and Clinton both had the nerve to speak about democratic rules of law when they just voted in Cuba whose dictator took control by a coup. Ironic isn’t it?

  11. I just saw on CNN a report on how one of the “coup” leaders apparently went to the School of the Americas. The narrative is already forming – this is what MSNBC will be saying by tomorrow ~

    “The President was trying to use the democratic vote to amend the constitution and then some CIA assisted goons overthrew him ala Allende, Arbenz etc”

    Orwell said it best: “Those who control the present, control the past”

  12. Don’t you just love this administration squawking about democratic rule?
    1. Obama and company destroy our democratic system by rushing bills through congress, with 300 extra pages tacked on at the last minute that no one has time to read and is pressured to pass anyway. They ruin our economy by massive spending in a recession and raise unemployment and the specter of inflation and future taxation. We elected democratically a guy who said no taxes, lower unemployment, balanced budget, no deficits and end of recession. Obama and company ignored every one of those promises and is saying to those who voted him in, go to hell.

    2. Obama and company tepidly deplore a dishonestly fixed election in Iran as they wish to work with the tyrants. To them stability matters more than freedom.

    3. Cubans don’t need freedom, but we need trade and travel with Cuba. Democracy for Cubans? Hell no.

    4. Israel’s freely elected democracy doesn’t get to decide what’s best for that country. Obama and company do.

    5. If it is known that Chavez’s fingerprints are all over this Honduran coup and Cuba is applauding it, then Hillary and Obama and the msm must, MUST, be against it.

    I am so tired of all this crap.
    Why isn’t most of this country?

  13. pototo –

    “Chavez blames the CIA”

    Oh come on … that’s gotta be BS … clearly the CIA has their hands full mucking things up for A-jhad and the mullahs in Iran and planning the attack on NKorea!

    I mean REALLY! The CIA is very under-manned since triple-secret-super-spy Valerie Plame was outted.

    Anyway, what took Hugo-The-Hut so long … I figured he would have said that this morning.

  14. The laugher of the day has to be the Granma article yesterday that says the Honduran people are behind their president.

  15. Oh … PS, remember what I said on a previous post here about our military in the event of a citizen uprising against this government …
