Emergency: All Eyes on Venezuela Sunday 1/23

American patriots, from Tea Parties to social democrats are being urged to show up as a ‘flash mob’– preferably with a red gag or bandanna over their mutually non-violent mouths — or at least to noise it up, in media and to media.

Caracas is the touch-point – ground zero beginning 9:30am ET and it could be, literally ballistic. As China transported military thugs from Mongolian provinces, to dispatch the Tienanmen protesters, word on the ground is Cuban military and FARC drug thugs may apply themselves to Sunday’s peaceful protesters, whether wearing olive green, or in street clothes, disguised as Venezuelan Chavez supporters.

G u l a g    B o u n d

Sunday 1/23 should be a critical day in the passions of world history. Tens of thousands of protesters are expected to amass in Caracas, Venezuela, demanding Hugo Chavez be deposed.

It could bring a new birth of freedom, or an atrocity worse than Tienanmen Square. All eyes must turn to Caracas and remain vigilant until the Marxofascist insurrection ends.

Over this past Christmas season, a hardcore, totalitarian mixture of Marxism and fascism (hence, Marxofascism) has been forced upon this nation of great strategic importance, one citizen’s life after another.

Did you know that? No shame if you did not. Eerily, even a dogged newshound may not have caught a whiff of the stench of Chavez’ totalitarian abrogations. Even so, this coming Sunday, January 23, Venezuela’s courageous require, perhaps desperately, the massively focused attention of Americans and of the entire world.  Will the whole world be watching?

Now, immediately, if news is spread, if watchers watch and prayers pray, it could mean the Venezuelans’ key to freedom and perhaps a turning point in the worldwide soft war against freedom and sovereignty, by a stealthy, globalist, Marxofascist complex.  Yes, Virginia and even District of Columbia, there is a vast globalist, Marxist/fascist conspiracy.  Just call it a “beast,” to use the term the Bible provides for such machinations and deal with it.

According to published articles and Venezuelan sources, this beast has applied the tentacles and fangs of Cuba, FARC, Iran, and Russia, to come to the aid of Hugo Chavez, after his party lost the overall majority vote in Venezuela’s parliamentary elections, September 26, of the past year.  And it becomes increasingly apparent, this beast includes others, even some of the powers that be (TPTB) in America; more on that in a subsequent article from us.

Following are the reasons for Sunday morning’s protests, then about the protests, themselves.

“Enabling” dictatorship & classic communist property theft

While the majority voted against Chavez’ party, they maintained a majority in their parliament.  This vote signaled the potential failure of that governing majority to sustain itself.  Their solution was to relinquish authority to Chavez by a very broad enabling act, granting him dictator status. [link]

By Christmas time, the Chavez thugs’ rallying cry was “Merry Chavismo,” as they busied themselves confiscating major farms totaling many thousands of acres, especially in the relatively successful, freer market stronghold of the Sur del Lago region. [link, link] This is a locality very rich in oil and natural gas, also in increasingly precious agriculture and never mind Venezuelan mouths, the top-down tyrannical regimes of the world are hungry for all of the above.

Chavez’  ill-fitting excuse, not wasting even a micro-crisis: his government needed to come to the rescue after alleged chaos following heavy rains. [See the propaganda: link.]

December 18, 2010, on a Venezuelan road

Massive protests followed.  Farm machinery was parked on highways, blocking the movement of military confiscators.  In one case, thug forces were halted by a ninety-something-year old man, blocking their path.  But eventually, for the most part, they accomplished their kleptocratic work, as family and corporate farmers both had their land stolen by Marxist fiat.

As the demonstrations mounted, we are informed, Chavez told farmers that his bureaucrats would review their land rights, if they brought their legal deeds for review.  They were stored in a building that was promptly burned.  Chavez, not missing a Marxofascist beat, then assented it was arson, but blamed it upon his opposition in the Un Nuevo Tiempo (UNT) party. [link, propaganda: link] This was a move as sensible as blaming the shooting spree of a maniacal fan of Marx and Hitler upon pro-freedom, anti-statist patriots, here in America.

Further aspects and abuses

The overall usurpations, constitutional violations, and sundry tyrannical abuses of the Chavez regime read like a Marxist scouting manual.  More than a few of them, oddly enough, remind one of efforts attempted and accomplished a bit more subtly or surreptitiously in America, lately.

  • use of “disaster” to nationalize, control, or destroy private property
  • seizure of private enterprise, including the nationalization of mass media
  • abrogations of power during a lame duck legislative session
  • minimal time allowed to debate major legislation
  • government by executive order
  • Internet controls
  • broadcast media controls (Globovision tenuously remains)
  • publicly calling out Globovision, “Enemies of the homeland, particularly those behind the scenes, I will give you a name: Globovision.  Greetings gentlemen of Globovision, you should watch where you are going….  I recommend you take a tranquilizer and get into gear, because if not, I am going to do what is necessary.”
  • slandering opposition as “defenders of the bourgeoisie,” or “defenders of the empire and of its politics of aggression”
  • prohibition of broadcasting material which foments “anxiety amongst the citizenry or that alters the public order”
  • imprisonment of anti-Chavez labor leader, Carlos Ortega, setting an example, for a chilling effect
  • [Links for the above: A, B, C, D]

Chilean historian and Venezuela watcher, Fernando Mires sums it up this way, “In Venezuela, the law is destroyed by the law, the judicial system is destroyed by the judicial system, and the Parliament is destroyed by the Parliament.”  Coincidences, indeed; funny how a little, loudly quacking duck will waddle the same way a bigger but stealthier one does.

Roman Catholic response

Immediately, Jorge Cardinal Urosa Savino and the Roman Catholic Episcopal Council of Venezuela were engaged.  They were not on the side of communist totalitarianism. [link, link]

According to El Universal:

Cardinal Urosa Savino said in a statement that Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez and his government are disregarding the Constitution and “want to impose a Socialist-Marxist system in the country to control all sectors. This system is totalitarian and is leading to dictatorship; not to proletarian dictatorship but to dictatorship led by the elite who is ruling the country.”

He stressed that attempts at leading the country to this system of government opposes to the wishes of the Venezuelan people who already rejected the implementation of a socialist system in previous elections.

“The government wants to impose a Marxist regime through unconstitutional laws, as the president has proclaimed,” Cardinal Urosa said.

He criticized government attempts to “control all production means through gradual monopolization of imports, distribution and marketing of foodstuffs.” He said that this position is “in line with the purpose of dismantling the domestic production system. The aim is to make people depend on the government to eat.”

The response from the Vatican, thus far, has not been so strongly focused.

Student protestor in Venezuela, 12/15/2010

Venezuelan students vow never to give up nor give in

Tens of thousands of students have organized, to depose Hugo Chavez.  They have vowed to not to recognize Chavez as the legitimate president of Venezuela, vowing to remove him from office “at any cost,” through civil disobedience.

These brief flashes of the news came to our notice during Christmas week (see Gulag Bound article for further details on source, translation, and original Spanish language: link):

The Central University Students (CEU), which includes newly created adecenas of thousands of students from universities across the country, has just declared Hugo Rafael Chavez Frias as public enemy number one in the country.

The CEU has determined that Chavez should be removed from the Presidency of the Republic by any viable means for having given the land to the Cubans, betrayed the Constitution and trying to implement a left-wing military dictatorship against the popular will.

University organizations called on every citizen of the country to timely and fair civil disobedience in the streets to the force the resignation or overthrow of the tyrant, in order to save democracy in the country.

Also, it no longer makes sense to ask to withdraw the enabling or the “packaged deal” Cuban laws that come back, because the regime is unwilling to even consider. Therefore, insist that ALL FIGHT IN THE STREETS AND TO FOCUS ON DEMANDING THE RESIGNATION OF pro-Cuban DICTATOR HUGO CHAVEZ.

What kind of fight it becomes and what comes out of it, only God knows.

The very critical rally this Sunday

Anti-dictatorship activist, Ulf Erlingsson, a former organizer for left-wing Democrats in America, has been documenting the totalitarian doings surrounding Venezuela.  Items from his blog have been featured in Gulag Bound and we interviewed him on “Gulag Night,” Thursday, January 13th. [link]  He describes the event as follows.

On the anniversary of when the people of Venezuela threw out the last dictator, January 23 (Sunday) they take to the streets again to protest against dictatorship. There will be sympathy demonstrations in some 30 cities around the world, including Miami.

The reason for holding this rally is not only the anniversary, but also the unconstitutional laws that have been implemented to deny any power to non-chavista parties, even in jurisdictions where they actually won the elections. There is no judicial separation of powers (e.g., judge Maria Afiuni is in jail without trial because Chavez didn’t like her verdict in a case); there is no legislative separation of powers (the lame duck Congress granted Chavez the right to rule by decree); and there is no local democracy (all state and municipal elected bodies have been replaced by “communes” answerable only to Chavez).

Furthermore there is media and internet censorship, and rampant confiscations of private property, both firms and farms. Rather than to use the oil wealth to improve conditions in Venezuela, Chavez is using it to subsidize the dictatorships in Cuba and Belarus, and he is apparently bribing the politicians of Bolivia, Ecuador, Nicaragua, and Honduras, to change also their constitutions to allow for perpetual reelection of the president. Being an ally of Ahmedinejad and Putin, and spending heavily on armaments for a high-technology war, he is clearly setting the stage for a conflict with the United States.

The main event is of course in Caracas, from 9:30 to 11:30 AM ET.

Erlingsson also lists locations and times around the world, in which demonstrations will be held. [link]  They are also listed as an addendum to this article.  These include, in the United States: Miami, New York, Los Angeles, Boston, and Dallas.  In Latin America sites include: Guayaquil, Equador; Santiago, Chile; Sao Paulo, Brazil; Bogota, Columbia; Mexico City; and Buenos Aires, Argentina.  In Europe: Madrid and Barcelona, Spain; Frankfurt, Germany; and Vienna, Austria.

American patriots, from Tea Parties to social democrats are being urged to show up as a “flash mob” preferably with a red gag or bandana over their mutually non-violent mouths — or at least to noise it up, in media and to media.

Flyers promoting and further describing these events may be found here: [link].

Examples of signage suggested for the demonstrations include these, from contraunadictadura.com or againstdictatorship.com.

The signs may look like child’s play, but that belies the danger and the courage to be required in Caracas, Sunday.  During the aforementioned Gulag Night program, writer and researcher of the communist movement, James Simpson, explained that trustworthy connections of his relate that freedom activists in Venezuela, being rivals of Chavez totalitarianism, have already begun to be “disappeared.”

In large part due to the potential totalitarian thuggery that may ensue, the nonviolent demonstrators are urged to bring cameras and Venezuelan activists who still have access will be reporting at Twitter’s searchable hashtags including: #E23 #23E #StopDictaturaVE, as well as posting photos and videos. Some may also tweet using #Venezuela or simply #VE.

Caracas Venezuela, 9:30am+ Eastern Time, 1/23

Caracas is the touch-point – ground zero beginning 9:30am ET and it could be, literally ballistic. As China transported military thugs from Mongolian provinces, to dispatch the Tienanmen protesters, word on the ground is Cuban military and FARC drug thugs may apply themselves to Sunday’s peaceful protesters, whether wearing olive green, or in street clothes, disguised as Venezuelan Chavez supporters. These are already in place, in Venezuela, in roles including trainers of Chavez’ own thugs, including intelligence operatives of his SEBIN the Servicio Bolivariano de Inteligencia. (Names vary for such people, akin to Cossack, Commissar, Gestapo, Viet Cong, or in American parlance, potentially, civillian national security force.)

If you know of any major American media that have been covering this and will do so prominently on Sunday, you tell us.  These are known ways presented, for monitoring and participating:

  • At the time of this publication, Erlingsson has already begun a live blog at his site:  blog.erlingsson.com.
  • GulagBound.com will be live blogging events, beginning that morning and continuing throughout the day, and will maintain an “open thread” comments line, for any news.
  • Gulag Media will be covering the events from 1pm to 3pm Eastern Time on BlogTalkRadio: Operation Venezuela Watch: Sunday 1/23. (Call-ins taken for listening by phone, or for questions and comments: 1-310-807-5060.)
  • This will be followed by another BTR program from 9pm-11pm ET, hosted by Babe Huggett and Warner Todd Huston: Huggett Huston 1/23, with guest, Toby Westerman, analyst of Latin American politics.  (Call-ins taken for listening, questions, or comments: 1-347-237-4040.)
  • In all of the above, Gulag Bound will be monitoring tweets, taking emails, instant messages, phone calls, and reporting as we are able, underground-to-underground, one might say.  Our email hotline is SerfsUp@GulagBound.com and our Twitter address is @GulagBound.

What will transpire will depend upon one man: Hugo Chavez.  What he does may depend upon the questions of how many are paying attention and who they are.   “The whole world watching?” — the whole world of Marxofascist controllers must begin to be outed, using their support of Hugo Chavez, the little thug with the big mouth, as focal point — more on that in just a bit.

All Citizens of every nation being accountable for our self governance, please “watch and pray” — and join the demonstrations if you are led — and contact those in your circles of influence.

  1. Peter Courtenay Stephens says

    “Beware the Marxist/Fascist Axis, as their excrement smells the same.”

    I coined the word **Farxist** in the mid 1970s. I feel it describes just about all on the left.

    Sic Semper Tyrannis!

  2. Arlen, that hashtag should be #StopDictaduraVE (“dura” not “tura”)

    Thanks for calling attention to these protests, never would have know otherwise.
