Recall Election gone. So what?

I suppose I should write about the annulation of the Recall Election.  I had guessed long ago that it would not happen. The intensity of the dislike toward Maduro is so strong, even among chavistas, that the regime could not allow CNN document the huge lines that would have formed for three days this week.  They had no stomach for that, it was better to use an idiotic legal sophistry and send it all ad patres.

To concur with the prevalent head line this week end that Venezuela is officially a dictatorship is an hypocrisy. I have long said it so and I am actually upset at some people having trying to avoid the D world finally pouting it. As if annulling the Recall Election was more despicable than, say, having political prisoners, forcing those freed into exile, stealing the budget of the nation, and more,

I will just comment on how ridiculous the pretext to kill the Recall Election was. In short, a sub judge in Podunk decided that the CNE had not done its job to vet all the signatures for the 1% collection to start the process. The ridicule, of declaring themselves incompetent through their beloved electoral ministry, CNE, is something they cannot worry about anymore. The obsessive objective is to never leave office. All considerations be dammed.

That is all that there is to it.

Now what?

    And playing little war games with a commercial airliner. Cannot get any better than that. Not to forget that their own family are starting to hate the military. It is getting better by the day

  2. Strategy should be to point out Maduro is Colombian, that chavismo has fallen in the hands of a few narcos and Marxists aligned with the Castro Mafia. Need to hit the Castros in the gut because they are very influential. Need to segregate the bad guys using Diosdado Cabello as their leader. This means a dialogue with Nicmer Evans and former chavista ministers. With the presence of a leftist dominated mediating group. There's a need to unite to put the Cabello narcos and the Maduro Cuban Satrapy bands in a corner.

    I would not hit the streets and go to Miraflores. But a few selected speeches pointing out the dictatorship continues to steal oil, and pressure on Wall Street gangsters willing to finance Maduro are essential. And of course need to attack Obama for encouraging Castro's survival. Venezuelans never understood their enemy is indeed external, it's subtle Castro colonization, and you have taken to it quite meekly.

  3. Only way anything changes at this point in Venezuela is for the people to ruse up in mass and take their country back. In fairness their ignorance gave it away. No one is coming to their rescue.

    1. Unfortunately, you're right. Since the peaceful change avenue is blocked new opposition leaders will arise to take Venezuela down the path of violent revolution. Sad that it's come to this.

    The strategy should be to use this as a pretext to act against the CNE and have all of them replaced for incompetence.

    That's not going to happen, but hey, one more bullet is one more bullet.

    And more, for years and years before 2016. As you well know.

    IOW, the CNE didn't do its job in annulling signatures by whatever means it could. No vale, no vale, no vale.

    After all, if a blind man can't read a signature or the corresponding cedula number, the signature must not be valid.
