Nicolas Maduro: Hard Won Victory
April 16, 2013

The Venezuelan National Election Council (CNE – Consejo Nacional Electoral) has announced the election results. As the forecasts had said, Nicolas Maduro has won. It was a tough fight, Maduro has gained 50.76% of the vote against 49.07% for 40-year-old opposition candidate Henrique Capriles… Does the Maduro’s victory on April 14 guarantee the continuation of Hugo Chavez’s policies aimed at further progress of Bolivarian revolution? Maduro and his supporters exclude anything else. This course is fundamental…

Slogan of the Day: Maduro Gets 10 Million Votes!
April 10, 2013

While addressing the voters, Maduro often remembers the last months of Chavez being alive, the long conversations they held together. Once in Havana they talked for six hours. Chavez shared his vision of the country’s future. He warned Maduro that there would be no bed of roses ahead, everything could happen to him, and so Maduro had to be ready. It was exactly then, when he named Maduro as his successor… Maduro promises he won’t let Comandante Chavez down. He says, «All Venezuelans work for the benefit of homeland. The time has come to join the efforts together. The great man, Chavez, left the world, but he continues to bless and defend us. I admit missing the Comandante so much – as a leader and a teacher. And I will be faithful to the oath I gave him»…

Venezuela to Elect President: Opposition Stands No Chance
April 8, 2013

A Venezuelan political scientist I know told me a few years ago the opposition had a promising presidential candidate – Alberto C. Vollmer, a young rum distiller and landowner holding the position of Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of Ron Santa Teresa… Vollmer was too independent to become a candidate. So those, who pull strings behind the curtains, have pushed him far aside giving way to docile Henrique Capriles Radonsky, 40, a scion of a rich Jewish family. The family owns industrial enterprises, media outlets, and the lion’s share of entertainment business. His right-wing views are to large extent explained by his descent and the ties of his family to business partners in the United States and Israel… 

Venezuela: Maduro Taking Lead
March 28, 2013

210 thousand policemen and traffic inspectors are tasked with the mission to preserve law and order before the April 14 presidential election. The military have already boosted security around industrial facilities. Everyone, who doesn’t belong to law enforcement agencies, is banned to have firearms. Alcohol is prohibited. The authorities say the screws will be tightened even more as the election day is drawing closer. As polls say, opposition candidate Henrique Capriles has no chances. This very fact poses threat to stability… Capriles needs dramatic exacerbation of the situation to turn the tide…

Venezuela: Decisive Rebuff to Outside Destabilization Efforts
March 5, 2013

Obviously, the Venezuelan opposition emissaries coordinate their destabilization activities with the United States.  The acts of sabotage have been renewed in Venezuela. Hundreds of tons of foodstuffs are taken out of the country. Some food is taken by entrepreneurs to clandestine storages, some transported to neighboring countries, and some is doomed to rot. Electricity lines and substations are subject to subversive actions. Water supplies are regularly interrupted. Street violence, especially in workers districts, is on the rise… The hopes are pinned on inciting chaos…

Man-Sacrifice to Detonate Unrest in Venezuela
March 28, 2012

Reportedly, Hugo Chavez dispatched the director of the Venezuelan security service (Sebin) to meet with the chief bodyguard of Henrique Capriles Radonski, the top opposition candidate in the upcoming presidential elections. The mission of Chavez's envoy was to warn that — as Sebin learned from credible sources in Miami — a plan is brewing to assassinate Radonski… If the plan of the anti-Chavez camp to sacrifice Radonski materializes, Venezuela will see its stability and progress owed to the period of the populist governance irreversibly undermined…
