A page out of the Chavez (leftist, in other words) Playbook

A Spanish Catalan newspaper is reporting that Honduran authorities have seized computers found in the Presidential Palace belonging to deposed president Mel Zelaya. Taking a page right out of the leftist dictator’s handbook, these computers, according to the news report, contained the official and certified results of the illegal constitutional referendum Zelaya wanted to conduct that never took place. The results of this fraudulent vote was tilted heavily in Zelaya’s favor, ensuring he could go ahead and illegally change the constitution so he could remain in power for as long as he wanted to. ACORN, I’m sure, is taking notes.

This is the man that the OAS, the UN, and the Obama State Department want the Honduran people to reinstall as their leader.

Decomisan varios ordenadores en la Casa Presidencial con los resultados de la consulta que quería hacer Zelaya


La Dirección Nacional de Investigación Criminal decomisó varios ordenadores en la Casa Presidencial en los que estaban registrados los supuestos resultados de el referéndum sobre la reforma de la Constitución que tenía previsto hacer el mandatario depuesto, Manuel Zelaya, el pasado 28 de junio, el día que fue derrocado.

La Fiscalía investigará ahora si se trata de un posible delito de fraude y falsificación de documentos, debido a que algunas actas habían sido rellenadas con los datos de las personas que supuestamente participaron en el fallido referéndum que no pudo llevarse a cabo por el golpe de Estado.

Uno de los fiscales que participó en el operativo realizado este viernes mostró a los medios de comunicación un acta electoral del Instituto Técnico Luis Bográn, de Tegucigalpa, en el que se especifica el número de personas que participaron en la mesa 345, donde se contabilizaron 550 papeletas de las cuales 450 eran votos a favor de la propuesta de Zelaya y 30 en contra, además de 20 votos en blanco y 30 nulos.

El decomiso se realizó en la tercera planta del edificio anexo al Ministerio de la Presidencia que había sido alquilada al ex ministro del Interior, Enrique Flores Lanza. El fiscal adjunto, Roberto Ramírez, declaró esa zona como la “escena del crimen” y, aunque no quiso precisar más detalles, dijo que habían hallado evidencias que podrían tipificar los delitos de fraude, malversación de fondos, falsificación de documentos y abuso de autoridad.

Here is a quick and rough translation of the above excerpt:

Several computers containing the results of the referendum Zelaya wanted to conduct are seized at the Presidential Palace

The National Directors of Criminal Investigation seized various computers from the Presidential Palace that had recorded the supposed results of the referendum to reform the constitution that the deposed leader, Manuel Zelaya, was planning to conduct on July 28, the day he was removed from office.

The official investigation now deals with the possible crime of fraud and falsification of documents due to the fact that some of the certified voting results had been filled with the personal information of individuals that supposedly participated in the failed referendum that did not take place because of the coup.

One of the district attorneys that participated in the operation that took place this Friday showed reporters an official voting result from the Technical Institute Luis Bogran, of Tegucigalpa, in which the specific number of people that participated in table 345, where there were 550 ballots, 450 of which were votes in favor of Zelaya’s proposal and 30 were against, in addition to 20 blank ballots and 30 ballots, which were nullified.

The seizure took place on the third floor of the building attached to the Ministry of the Presidency that had been rented to the ex-minister of the Interior, Enrique Flores Lanza. The deputy district attorney, Roberto Ramirez, declared this area as a “crime scene” and, although he did not want to provide further details, said that further evidence had been found that could be categorized as crimes of fraud, embezzlement of funds, falsification of documents, and abuse of authority.

As of the time of this post, I have not been able to find any news of this in the English press, which, of course, does not surprise me. If any of you find something, please post a link in the comments section.

No word yet from the English speaking press about the bombshell coming out of Tegucigalpa. Are they sleeping in on a Saturday morning?

Here is an article in the Honduran news service, La Tribuna, detailing the latest find of evidence pointing to intended voter fraud by Zelaya and his supporters. In addition, there is even an article about it in the Nicaraguan news site, Nicaragua Hoy.

Let’s see how long it takes the AP, Reuters, the New York Times, and the rest of the English speaking “news” organizations to catch up to these Hispanic reporters.

  1. Watch it, Alberto! You called it a “Spanish newspaper.” It’s actually Catalan. Those people are very, very touchy about that. Whooo-boy!

    Great post, btw! This is truly important stuff–a “smoking gun” if you will. First I’ve heard of it, and I’ve been trying to keep up.

  2. You’re right, Humberto, it is a Catalan newspaper and I know they are touchy about the subject. They are, however, in Spain but nevertheless, I’ve revised my post.

    This revelation of Zelaya’s intention of pulling a Chavezesque type bloodless coup is very inconvenient to his supporters outside Honduras. Chances are they’ll ignore this for as long as they can and then they’ll say the evidence was planted, etc., etc. Come on, they find FARC computers implicating most of the leftist tyrants in Latin America and everyone looks the other way.

    As you always say, unreal!

  3. I don’t exaggerate in the least when I define your post as a blockbuster, amigo!–more properly a “deal-buster” for Zelaya (and Chavez).

    Might that account for the worldwide media blackout on this vital revelation?

    We need to get this info. to Fox, Limbaugh, etc. They’ll help “blow the roof of this sucka!”

    But I doubt they’ll pick it up from the AP or Reuters.

  4. Let’s see how long it takes …for the msm…to catch up to these Hispanic reporters.
    I know exactly when this will be reported. After it is too late to save the Hondurans. We just have to hope that Rush, etc. get it out and Hondurans gets to be lucky people who hold out and escape the lot of Cuba and Venezuela.

  5. Amazingly, the Honduran press–which I’ve been consulting on the Zelaya issue daily–is mum on this issue?


    I plan on writing about this (citing Babalu/de la Cruz) but my editors will need–as always–two sources for corroboration.

    Anyone picks up anything on this, could you please post it on Alberto’s post?

    Sank you

  6. A mi el link que me enviaron esta mañana era de ABC España, pero es el mismo articulo.
    Lo que me resulta raro, pero puede ser un error, es que las cifras que dan no concuerdan.
    “550 papeletas de las cuales 450 eran votos a favor de la propuesta de Zelaya y 30 en contra, además de 20 votos en blanco y 30 nulos.”

    450 + 30 + 20 + 30= 530 no 550

    Aqui hay un articulo de la Tribuna con fotos de una de las computadoras y de la lista de votos.


  7. Here is an explanation but I still don’t understand the difference between 530 and 550.
    “Para el caso, el documento habla de la mesa 345, con 450 encuestas para el sí, 30 para el no, 480 válidas, 20 blancos, 30 nulos, 530 encuestas utilizadas, para un total de 550 encuestas.”

  8. “What is it about Hugo that charms Obama?”

    Mr. Mojito I have the straight and painful answer for you:

    There isn’t a Marxist or an enemy of America that Obama does not love.

  9. An article about the Honduran situation which you may find intersting. It appeared today in El Universal, Caracas.
    Archbishop Baltazar Porras of Mérida, Venezuela.
    En honduras (into the depths).
    Latin America is living a deep institutional crisis. In accordance with postmodern times old problems reappear under new disguises. From colonial times laws were recognized but not implemented (se acata pero no se cumple). The best examples of that are presidents and public authorities. The magic formula is to convoke a Constitutional Assembly and propose a luminous novelty: presidential reelection. Our current democratic era is experiencing the new messiahs who impose the sacred formula: “there is no salvation without me”. “My perpetuation in power will bring, it is not known when, happiness for my people”. The latest outbreak of this virus infected Honduran president Zelaya. Ignoring the Constitution he attempted a “naïve and not binding referendum”. After a coup against the laws came another coup. Suddenly he turns up outside the country wearing a Texan hat, but in pajamas, a credit card in his pocket included. Into the scene come the “defenders of institutional (dis) order”, the OAS, the UN and ALBA, demanding the president be returned to his job, screaming condemnation of all coups, threatening to invade, to blockade. And to top it off: the invited guest of honor, defender of democracy and freedom: Raúl Castro! The sensible answer came from Honduran institutions: we are a small country and poor, we fix our own problems. We prefer international condemnation to falling into the Venezuelan situation; then none will lend us a hand. While ethical principles and laws are like a fashion “pret a porter” in order to perpetuate themselves in power, the majorities will continue to suffer violence and injustice. That is why we Christians have a duty to go into the depths/ commit ourselves (meternos en honduras). That has been and will continue to be the mission of the Church, as has been manifested in exemplary fashion by Cardinal Rodriguez Maradiaga.

  10. To quote Josef Stalin, “It is enough that the people know there was an election. The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything.”

  11. Don’t hold your breath if you expect expect the bought and paid for American press to report this incovenient truth.
    Under the current political climate this is not the kind of news we want to be getting out quite the contrary, I would not be surprised to see this this story downplayed,ignored,discredited……..

  12. As far as I can tell, Europa Press is a SPANISH wire service – hence the article being in Spanish, not Catalan.
