Chavista Justice versus media manipulation

November 29, 2004

So now, it is all the media’s fault. Yesterday it was the Vice-President blaming the media. Today its is the digitally elected Governor of Miranda state who says: “The Vice-President did not go far enough, denouncing the media…because what is happening is that the media is covering up the true guilty ones”. This outrageous statement is irresponsible Government at its best. Can you really blame the media for the Keystone cops behavior of the Venezuelan police in the last few days? It is the Government who is responsible, it is that fake concept called “Justicia Chavista”. It is the Government who is covering up. It is the Government that has been going around killing supposed “suspects” using the easy strategy of killing first and asking questions second. It is the fault of Justicia Chavista.


But this is the same behavior we have seen in the last few years for Justice under Chavez. No case gets solved, from the 45 corruption cases that forced Chavez’ fellow coupster to resign in 2000,to the April 2002 murders, to the leaks that made millions to those that had the information, to Fort Mara fire, nothing ever gets solved. But blame the media for revolutionary incompetence, the rest is Justicia Chavista.


 


Maybe the Guevara brothers are guilty as charged. But interestingly enough there are two dead people and the Government has failed to prove they had anything to do with the case. They have failed to show a connection between the Anderson case and Hebraica, they have failed to show a connection between Lopez and Anderson. But they blame the media. It is the easy way out.


 


But let’s hear what Petkoff has to say in today’s Editorial in Tal Cual’s Editorial  “Police Manipulation”:


 


“Despite the President warning that police procedures had to follow the Constitution and the laws, some things have happened about which one can suspect actions by the police that are far from clear.


 


Let’s start with the case of the Guevara brothers. How is it that people who according to Chacon were being searched because there was evidence that they participated in the Anderson case “disappeared” and a few days later “appear” mistreated in a bush in Valencia and are “found” by the National Guard, who later hands  them over to the intelligence police? Who detained them for a few days and then left them there? Was it a police force? Which one? What type of police procedure is this? Does it conform to the Constitution and the laws? Obviously not. Jesse Chacon limited himself to saying that it should be investigated and launched absurd speculations about there being a self-kidnapping. It is evident that Chacon at this stage Chacon knows exactly what happened.


 


If things are done correctly and with transparency, doctor Rangel and Lieutenant Chacon, if all the procedures follow the Constitution and the laws, there is no room for “media manipulation”. If there is, and we do not deny it, it is the Government that promotes it with its evident police manipulation”


 


I go back to a point that I have made repeatedly: It is a Government that has the higher responsibility. It helps little to blame the media. It helps little to cry manipulation. It is the job of the Government to find those that killed Danilo Anderson and bring them to trial. But it has to be done responsibly. The media and the limited opposition in this country are now left to the job of incredulous observers of a charade by an irresponsible Government that claims to be staging a revolution. If not this cartoon of what Justicia Chavista stands for will continue to be reivindicated time and time again:


 



 


In Venezuela justice is not blind, or impartial, nor impartial, nor independent….it is Chavista!

Was this a warning?

November 29, 2004

Peaceful Venezuelans are now caught between an outlaw Government and the presence of radical groups reacting to the actions of this Government. Below you will find an obituary published in local newspaper El Nacional a week before the Anderson murder:



Translation:


In memoriam


Claus Shenk Von Stauffenberg


Veteran of the Afrika Corps and Colonel of the Wehrmacht


On the sixtieth anniversary of the summary execution by nazi fanatics of the author of the failed attempt by bombing against Adolph Hitler in his Rastemburg bunker in Eastern Prussia, that had it been consummated would have advanced the end of World War II, saving the lives of millions of soldiers and civilians in the countries under conflict and preventing more suffering of the great German people. The free men of Venezuela honor his memory and salute his gesture of legitimate social defense, which arises from its historical context as a valid model in the fight against tyrannies of whatever ideological sign.

Make what you want out of this. Except for who was killed, this seemed like a warning of things to come, even if I did not understand it at the time.

Jewish educational and cultural center raided

November 29, 2004

Intelligence police raided this morning Hebraica,a Jewish educational and cultural facility in the East of Caracas. The raid was carried out just as 1,500 kids were arriving for school. The raid is reportedly related to the Anderson case. The police have left the premises and there is no information as to whether they found anything or not.


The Minister of Justice said that they were looking for weapons related to the Anderson cae, which they did not find. Curious how when pro-Chavez urban guerilla groups are shown on TV with high caliber weapons, such as the Carapaicas and the Tupamaros, nothing happens, but they are so quick to raid a jewish school and are so sennsitive to do it just as the kids are arriving. No bias here…

An excellent post from Daniel’s blog

November 29, 2004

This post from Daniel’s blog is too good not to reproduce, excellent Daniel! It clearly shows the true colors of this fake revolution. This is hate, discrimination and the preferential treatment the revolution gives to its own:


A picture is worth a thousand words


 


I could not resist making this picture montage. One from El Nacional, one from Tal Cual via Globovision and the last one from Union Radio.

The picture on the front page of El Nacional raises quite a few questions. On that picture you can see as Otoniel Guevara, just arrested as a suspect in the many facets of the
Anderson affair, is taken into custody.




Two days earlier the parents of Lopez Castillo were taken into custody themselves. Two elderly people, handcuffed to each other. A very visible security threat. Even though the old lady is allowed to keep her hand bag (where a small grenade could well be hidden) and the elderly gentleman is carrying a bottle (that could well be a Molotov coktail).

Now, why such a different treatment? These two people had just lost their only child a few hours before (note that they still manage to wear dark clothing). The above one used to be a “colleague” in the security forces of
Venezuela.

So Jesse? Any logical explanation?
