Just a little comment on Chavez: is he alive?

I really do not follow much the gossip as to whether Chavez has a tube inside here or there. Nor do I agonize about the contradictory "communiques" of chavismo from ministers to Chavez's brother. No, no point wasting time when it is plain obvious the guy is really sick. That is enough for me.

However....

There has been now one month we have not heard anything direct from him. No photo. Not even a signature on a letter to announce his inability to show up on January 10. A letter, note, that anyone could have written and just presented him for his signature.  Can anyone believe that a media crazed clown like Chavez would not even stamp a signature?

And then they complain and threaten us because we wonder whether the guy is even alive.....

  2. What shocks me is that nothing leaks out.
    Where are the tabloids when we really need them?

  3. I ran across this early this morning. Since it is a slow news day I'll post this. Daniel if you don't want it on here, of course remove it.Así me llego "Confirmado de fuentes EXACTAS. Chavez esta liquidado. Parálisis total del sistema intestinal (ileo paralítico). Riñones no trabajan. Acumulación de liquido con desechos en cuerpo y sangre! Síndrome del distress respiratorio del adulto en estado grave! La máquina respiradora aun con niveles de presión elevadas de oxigeno no logra estabilizar intercambio de gases, es decir chavez no respira. El Resultado del examen de la toracocentesis revelo tanto de la muestra de fluido pleural de brasil como la que se envío a USA es que Chavez tiene células malignas en los pulmones es decir metástasis del rabdomiosarcoma agresivo de células que se multiplican cada 19 dias! Por lo que se sumaria a la metastasis que tiene en hígado, páncreas, riñones intestinos y columna. Si lo desconectan calculan que podría durar aprox 7 minutos con vida. Presenta pequeñas nuevas hemorragias a nivel del torax pero en grado multiple! Tampoco existen mayores posibilidades que recupere la conciencia sumado a que las hijas pidieron desconexion manteniendolo en coma inducido por 7 min hasta su muerte! Presidentes de Brasil Argentina Ecuador ya tienen confirmada la noticia! Maduro Viajo a cuba con alto mando militar para reunirse con los Castros y presidentes amigos para trazar estrategia a seguir: "Plan Coordinacion Servicios Religiosos a cargo del Cnel Monsenor Jose Hernan Sanchez", plan "Directiva Ceremonial y Protocolo Militar" también el "Plan Protocolo de Honores Fúnebres que incluye buques de guerra venezolanos disparando salvas todos los días hasta el dia de la inhumación con miras a ser llevar sus restos y depositarlos en el Panteón", y el llamado "Plan Batalla de Santa Ines" que contempla 2 objetivos: retardar lo mas posible desconexión vital de Chavez y retardar información de muerte del presidente para ganar tiempo en contra de la oposición y a favor de la campana de Maduro! OJO confirmado en aprox 72 horas se tendrán noticias si se sigue filtrando la información de Cuba!"

      The Google translate version--
      So I get "EXACT Confirmed sources. Chavez is liquidated. Intestinal system Total paralysis (paralytic ileus). Kidneys do not work. Accumulation of fluid in the body and blood waste! Respiratory distress syndrome in critically ill adult! The breathing machine even with high levels of oxygen pressure fails to stabilize gas exchange, chavez is not breathing. Exam Result of thoracentesis revealed both pleural fluid sample from Brazil as that shipping to the U.S. is that Chavez has cells malignant lung metastasis ie aggressive rhabdomyosarcoma cells that multiply every 19 days! summary As the metastasis that takes into liver, pancreas, kidneys, intestines and spine. disconnected If you estimate that could last about 7 minutes life. Presents rebleeding small chest level but multiple grade! Nor are most likely to recover consciousness that daughters joined requested disconnection keeping it in 7 min induced coma until his death! Presidents of Brazil and Argentina have confirmed Ecuador news! Maduro traveled to Cuba with military brass to meet with presidents Castros and friends to plot strategy to follow: "Religious Services Coordination Plan by the Col Monsignor Jose Hernan Sanchez," plan "Military Ceremonial and Protocol Directive" also " Funeral Honors Protocol Plan including Venezuelan warships firing salvos every day until the day of the funeral in order to be carrying his remains and place them in the Pantheon, "and the so-called" Battle of Santa Ines Plan "which includes two goals : delay as much as possible off of Chavez and slow vital information of death of the president to gain time against the opposition and pro-Maduro bell! OJO confirmed will take approx 72 hours if you follow news information filtering Cuba! '

    .
    For Ch'avez to be so silent and for nothing to be known about him directly only makes feasible one thing!
    .
    Something is really wrong, and I do not know why they are scared about letting us all know!
    .
    What is going to happen will happen! That is obvious! They are simply delaying the time of where and when...!
    .
    For Ch'aves to be al-right or that he can recover or make public presence is the alternative, that does not comply with any logic of his current "silence" and lack of any real information!
    .
    If this is a hiding tactic, time will tell!
    .
    But be it that he comes back, or not! WE ALL WANT TO GET ON WITH REALITY...!

    Some idiot on another blog claimed that Chavez' signature is electronic, therefore no need for him to physically sign anything. Be that as it may, the lack of any photo or other evidence that he is alive works for the chavista government, at least for a while. They can stretch out as much as posssible any repercussions arising from his death/permanent absence.

    What Ken posted above would not surprise me one bit if it were 100% true. That he is simply more dead than alive and that time is running out on him. AS to whether his lungs or his liver or some other organ has metastasized and whatnot, that is anyone's guess.

    I have a friend that works for the office of the VP in the US. They believe that Chavez' days are numbered and they base this on "privately obtained information at the source", which makes me believe it comes from either the island or from some higher up in Caracas. No word on the progression of the disease, nor on timing, but the consensus is that they have an opportunity to reach out and try to mend the relationship now that Chavez will be out of the way for good. Whether Maduro decides (or rather his Cuban masters decide) to allow rapproachment with the US is unclear at this time.

    It's a bit like trying to sell a car to a soon to be widow, you know she's going to need one, you don't want to lose the sale but it may not be the right time to broach the subject. So you let her know you have the inventory, and that you are "a la orden" and then you wait.

  7. From all the information I have been able to gather from Cuba, living in Miami it is not hard to find someone who knows someone who works in that Hospital, i think he is in very bad shape Daniel.

    Add to that the fact he cant even sign a simple document. Maduro let the cat out of the bag the other day when he said "i held his hand and i felt a firm grip". Really Maduro WTF! In what kind of shape must he be in to say something like that? It speaks volumes in my book.

    My 2 cents here anyways

      "i held his hand and i felt a firm grip" means that Chavez is semi-conscience.
      Asking a patient to squeeze his hand is a standard test to see if there is any communication. It also means that Chavez eyes are likely closed because the eyes are the first means of communication.

      I am not a doctor but I have been with persons who had brain injuries or were just recovering from anesthesia. The eye movement and hand squeeze tests were common.

      You are right. Maduro said more than he knows.

  8. For me, the question of Chavez's health status is answered and no longer relevant. He is either dead or he is dying and will die shortly. Either way, he has ceased to exercise living power and never will again. There already exists an "absolute absence" of the President of Venezuela. The real question is when will the government admit it.

    The recent meeting in Havana was to ascertain and plan just that. They are carefully scripting a narrative that they hope will transfer Chavez's aura to Maduro. Which reminds me of a saying that goes, "You can dress a pig up and put lipstick on it... but it's still a pig."

This is an anti Chavez blog, with more than 95% anti Chavez readers that have made up their minds long ago. Thus trying to prove us wrong is considered a troll.
