Venezuela has quietly seized control of two US oil rigs owned by a unit of Houston-based Superior Energy Services

Venezuela has quietly seized control of two US oil rigs owned by a unit of Houston-based Superior Energy Services | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it

CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) -- Venezuela has quietly seized control of two oil rigs owned by a unit of Houston-based Superior Energy Services after the company shut them down because the state oil monopoly was months behind on payments.

The seizure took place Thursday after a judge in the state of Anzoategui, accompanied by four members of the local police and national guard, entered a Superior depot and ordered it to hand over control of two specialized rigs to an affiliate of PDVSA, the state-owned oil producer.

PDVSA justified the equipment's expropriation, calling it essential to the South American nation's development and welfare, according to a court order obtained by The Associated Press. Company workers were instructed to load the rigs, known as snubbing units and used to repair damaged casing, onto trucks to be deployed at "critical wells" elsewhere, according to the document.

"It was like a thief breaking into your house, asking for the keys to the safe and then expecting you to help carry it away," Jesus Centeno, local operations manager for Superior in the city of Anaco, said by phone. "Their argument was that we were practically sabotaging national production."

While the late President Hugo Chavez liked to grandstand on national television, ordering troops to seize everything from supermarkets to foreign-owned oil companies, his hand-picked successor, Nicolas Maduro, has avoided any additional expropriations six months into his rule.

Instead, even while attacking the country's business elite for allegedly hoarding toilet paper and other basic goods as part of an "economic war," he's insisted Venezuela is open for investment and is seeking to boost production of oil that accounts for 95 percent of exports.

Neither Maduro nor any government official has publicly commented on the seizure of the U.S.-owned rigs. A spokesman for PDVSA in Caracas declined to comment, saying he was unaware of the case.

littlebytesnews's insight:

I'm sure Obama supports this because he doesn't care about the oil industry and wants to see them shutdown or suffer.

Here's The Letter The US Sent Venezuela Urging Them To Arrest Edward Snowden If He Shows Up

Here's The Letter The US Sent Venezuela Urging Them To Arrest Edward Snowden If He Shows Up | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
Two days before he was offered asylum there.
littlebytesnews's insight:

Obama isn't going to try and arrest him, but is counting on other countries to capture him. Obama already said he's not going to send out jets/police to capture 'just a hacker', so apparently he really doesn't think he's committing espionage or he really doesn't care about the danger he's putting America in. At first Snowden was noble for raising awareness about the PRISM program but he has become desperate and is vulnerable to bribes in exchange for his security and life that he has since disclosed info on US intel that has caused our allies to distrust us and weaken US credibility. Not that other countries don't likely spy on us and call themselves allies but Snowden confirmed this and now it makes us look untrusting. 

If the Obama admin were smart they would have denounced everything Snowden said and let people wonder who was really telling the truth, but then again most people already distrust the govt so they would have trusted Snowden and figured he did it for a reason and was risking his job, his life and his security. Either way he's gone too far by sharing national security info and making the US lose worldwide credibility. Now nobody trusts us or him.

Venezuela's Opposition Leader Calls Maduro a Liar And A "Boy"

Venezuela's Opposition Leader Calls Maduro a Liar And A "Boy" | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
Venezuela's opposition leader said Friday that Vice President Nicolas Maduro had "shamelessly" lied to the country and accused him of using Hugo Chavez's funeral to campaign for the presidency.

 

Henrique Capriles also said in a speech that the opposition had asked to attend Chavez's funeral but was told "better that you don't come."

Capriles spoke condescendingly of Maduro, calling him "boy."

Capriles lost the Oct. 7 presidential election to Chavez. He said he decided to speak Friday to object to the ruling earlier in the day by the country's highest court that Maduro had become acting president the moment Chavez died.

The government announced Thursday night that Maduro would be sworn in Friday night. He will be the governing socialists' presidential candidate in the vote to replace Chavez.

Capriles said he had withheld criticism since Chavez's death out of respect, but could no longer hold his tongue at what he saw as a power grab.

"I tell you clearly, Nicolas, I am not going to speak of the times you lied to the country, shamelessly," Capriles said. "The people have not voted for you, boy."

littlebytesnews's insight:

Under the constitution, the head of Congress, Diosdado Cabello, would assume the interim presidency.

However, Mr Maduro is Chavez's self-annointed successor and has been holding the reigns since the president's health took a turn for the worse.

The man Chavez defeated in October's presidential elections, Miranda state Governor Henrique Capriles, is expected to represent the opposition in any new national polls.

Did Someone Kill Chavez By ‘Giving’ Him Cancer? --Of course not,but Cuban medical care did kill him...

Did Someone Kill Chavez By ‘Giving’ Him Cancer? --Of course not,but Cuban medical care did kill him... | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
As Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez lay dying, his vice president lashed out, accusing enemies of somehow inducing cancer in the leftist leader. At the same time, Nicolas Maduro expelled two U.S. diplomats from the country.

 

In accusing the U.S., Maduro was repeating claims that Chavez made before he died. Following his diagnosis in 2011, Chavez charged that the U.S. had “given” him cancer. Maduro said he had “no doubt” Chavez's illness was induced by "the historical enemies of our homeland.” 

Dr. Samadi noted that the Venezuelan government has released few details about the cancer. However, it has been described as a pelvic tumor, which Dr. Samadi said leads him to believe that the Chavez most likely suffered from prostate cancer, which is “the most common pelvic cancer in men.” Another possibility is that it was a soft tissue cancer called a sarcoma, he said. 

“When you have cancer of this type, the first surgery is the best option for a cure,” said Dr. Samadi. Robotic surgery, which he performs, is the best option because, he noted, “the mass can hide under the pelvic bone, and with robotic surgery, we’re able to get into blind areas, which would have given him a better chance for a cure.”

“People in Latin America should know that, in the hands of experienced surgeons who are experienced in the latest treatments, he could be still be alive,” Dr. Samadi said.

Yeah, about that...
littlebytesnews's insight:

Outrageous that DHS/ICE released these people without even notifying local law enforcement about who they released and what kind of 'low level criminal' history they have!

 

Here is an example of at least one known illegal immigrant that was recently released by DHS/ICE, a child abuser, with charges for “simple assault, and simple battery" http://www.nationalreview.com/campaign-spot/342102/meet-napolitanos-low-risk-released-illegal-immigrant ;

 

Most were released in GOP states like Texas and Arizona! Is this a form of revenge by the Obama administration against Conservatives and states that have pushed back on amnesty and fought for more border security and enforcement of immigration laws??

They don't care about national security, jobs for Americans or defense. They'd rather create havoc and fear in the people and outrage&intimidate the GOP into increasing taxes rather than reasonable spending cuts!! These are the actions of tyrants like Chavez in Venezuela did, and Saddadm Hussein did and other tyrants have done before they took dictatorial power.

 

It is treasonous what they are doing releasing these criminals into our country and defying the rule of law, our justice system and endangering our children and families!! 

Incompetano and Obama should be impeached and tried for treason over this!

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez Dies

 

 

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has died at the age of 58 after losing his long battle with cancer.

The country's vice president, Nicolas Maduro, announced the death in a national television broadcast.

He said Chavez died at 4.25 pm local time "after battling a tough illness for nearly two years".

The fiery populist leader's condition had been said to be deteriorating in recent days.

He had been undergoing cancer treatment in Cuba on and off since June 2011 - when he was first diagnosed with the illness.

The announcement came just hours after Mr Maduro announced the government had expelled two US diplomats from the country.

He said "we have no doubt" that Chavez's illness was induced by foul play by "the historical enemies of our homeland".

The government announced late Monday that Chavez's condition was "very delicate" due to a "new, severe" respiratory infection.

Chevez had not been seen in public or heard since undergoing a fourth round of surgery in Cuba on December 11 in the pelvic area

The government said he returned home on February 18, and had been confined to Caracas' military hospital ever since.

During more than 14 years in office, Chavez routinely challenged the status quo at home and internationally.

He declared a socialist revolution in Venezuela, crusaded against US influence, championed a leftist revival across Latin America, and over time, gradually placed all state institutions under his personal control.

But the former army paratrooper commander, who rose to fame by launching a failed 1992 coup, never groomed a successor.

His death sets up a snap presidential election after his illness prevented him from taking the oath of office when he was re-elected last year.

Under the constitution, the head of Congress, Diosdado Cabello, would assume the interim presidency.

However, Mr Maduro is Chavez's self-annointed successor and has been holding the reigns since the president's health took a turn for the worse.

The man Chavez defeated in October's presidential elections, Miranda state Governor Henrique Capriles, is expected to represent the opposition in any new national polls.

More follows...

 

littlebytesnews's insight:

His successor is a former bus driver who didn't graduate high school, but Chavez chose him as successor despite the Constitution recognizing the head of Congress as the interim president. Nicolas Maduro was chosen by Chavez for his loyalty to Chavez and his support of his socialist policies. 

 

Today his self appointed successor claimed the US was responsible for infecting Chavez with cancer and said they would seek some type of retaliation and expelled two US diplomats:

http://worldnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/03/05/17196733-venezuela-vp-chavezs-cancer-was-an-attack-by-his-enemies?lite

Hours before Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez died, his second-in-command accused enemies of giving him cancer and announced the expulsion of two U.S. diplomats for an alleged plot to destabilize the government.

 

"There's no doubt that Commandante Chavez's health came under attack by the enemy," Vice President Nicolas Maduro said in an address to the nation from the presidential palace.

"The old enemies of our fatherland looked for a way to harm his health,'' according to Maduro, drawing a parallel to the illness and 2004 death of Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat, which some supporters blamed on poisoning by Israeli agents.

He said a special commission would investigate how Chavez, 58, ended up with the unspecified cancer that months of chemotherapy and radiation and four surgeries failed to tame.

State Department spokesman Patrick Ventrell said in a statement it was "absurd" to suggest that the U.S. was somehow involved in Chavez's illness.


Maduro accused one of them, David Delmonaco, of spying and meeting with Venezuelan military officials for nefarious purposes. The expulsion of the second, Devlin Kostal, was announced soon after.

 

Defense Department spokesman Lt. Col. Todd Breasseale said Delmonaco would be leaving Caracas and that Kostal was already in the U.S. and denied the allegations against them.

"We completely reject the Venezuelan government's claim that the United States is involved in any type of conspiracy to destabilize Venezuela government," he said.

 

Ventrell also dismissed the accusations.


As a result it doesn't sound like US-Venezuela relations will improve. Hugo Chavez called the US the great emperor and saw the US as a threat and believed the US sought a military coup against him in 2008. Chavez nationalized business and banks in Venezuela, telling the people he believed in "spreading the wealth'', much like Obama has done in the US after saying he wants to 'spread the wealth' and nationalizing the car industry with a bailout and the banks. 

 

The president had not been seen in public for the three months but the cult of his personality kept his leadership alive.

Hugo Chavez was one of the most charismatic and controversial leaders of our time.

A master of the spotlight, his military fatigues and synthetic red tracksuits underlining his socialist credentials made him a photographer's dream.

Best of all were the shots that captured him with his pet parrot, named after a Venezuelan General, and sometimes sporting a tiny red beret to match his own.

No wonder he caught the imagination of Hollywood filmstars and directors. One day attending premieres with Oliver Stone, the next sharing jokes with Naomi Campbell.

Mr Chavez in a Cuban hospital with his daughters

Mr Chavez was a former soldier who was elected president in 1998, after being imprisoned for a failed coup seven years earlier.

His nineties brand of revolutionary socialism won him plenty of affection amongst the poor, with many of his supporters viewing him with almost religious reverence.

It was an emotional connection he was happy to milk on his weekly television show, Alo Presidente. The masses tuning in for his rambling poetry recitals and even stranger song and dance routines.

His country's vast oil reserves gave the president the money to tackle poverty, boosting spending on health and education. But corruption and mismanagement left the economy struggling and democracy withered under his rule.

 

An increasingly autocratic Mr Chavez changed the constitution to allow unlimited presidential terms, stamped hard on press freedom and nationalised many of the country's industries.

A natural firebrand, he didn't confine himself to Latin American politics. Instead he took on the West by courting fellow controversial figures like Cuba's Fidel Castro and  Libya's Muammar Gaddafi, forging a close alliance with Iran and offering Argentina support on the Falklands.

But Mr Chavez saved most of his wrath for the Americans, regularly referring to George W Bush as Mr Danger, and accusing Washington of "fighting terror with terror" in Afghanistan.

In one particularly bellicose statement in 2006 he appeared at the UN a day after the former American president and stated: "The Devil came here yesterday. It smells of sulphur still".

 

http://news.sky.com/story/1060598/hugo-chavez-a-master-of-the-spotlight

 

The Obama White House has expressed relief at Chavez's death and believe Hugo Chavez was trying to cause trouble between the US and Venezuela, and calling GWB "the Devil''. Obama has finally issued a short statement in response to the death of Hugo Chavez, stating that he hopes the people of Venezuela will reach out for democracy and peacful policies and respect for the rule of law. [That's almost laughable considering Obama has been following similar policies in the US and ignoring the rule of law when it comes to immigration, DOMA and nationaling banks and the auto industry. 

 

US representatives and analysts see the death of Chavez as a blow for socialism and could be an opportunity for South American countries to revive their economies and move away from socialism. Cuba has the largest oil reserves in the world, but has given Cuba a lot of power in the world market despite competition with Saudi Arabia. 

 

According to the AP, Chavez chosen successor Maduro is a loyalist who would keep Chavez legacy and policies in place. 

 

However, "Maduro now faces the daunting task of rallying support in a deeply divided country while maintaining unity within his party's ranks.


Maduro decidedly lacks the vibrant personality that made Chavez a one-man political phenomenon in Venezuela, but he has the advantage of being Chavez's hand-picked successor.

The mustachioed 50-year-old former bus driver won Chavez's trust as a loyal spokesman who echoed the president's stances. How Maduro will lead in Chavez's absence remains to be seen, although he's widely known as both a skilled negotiator and a leader who views upholding his mentor's legacy as his personal crusade and responsibility.

 

One of the biggest tasks Maduro will likely face is attempting to hold together a diverse movement that includes radical leftists, moderates and many current and former military officers.

Analysts have speculated that differences might emerge between factions led by Maduro and Diosdado Cabello, the influential National Assembly president who is thought to wield power within the military. But thus far both men have denied such divisions and vowed to remain united.

 

After Chavez's Dec. 11 cancer surgery, Maduro stepped up his public appearances to fill the void, providing regular updates on the president's condition, calling for unity among allies and lambasting the opposition.

 

Maduro also showed how he could attempt to continue Chavez's socialist-inspired project. Speaking at one December rally, he vowed in vague terms to maintain policies that have angered the country's leading business federation, Fedecamaras, which was long at odds with the president.

 

"We aren't going to give dollars to Fedecamaras. What we're going to give them is pains, headaches with this Bolivarian Revolution," Maduro shouted, his voice hoarse. "I swear to you ... we're never going to betray the people of Venezuela!"

Chavez's deteriorating health led him on Dec. 8 to announce Maduro as his chosen successor. He said that if his illness prevented him from being sworn in on Jan. 10, government supporters should rally around Maduro and elect him president.

Maduro is expected to keep promoting programs such as free medical clinics staffed by Cuban doctors and subsidized food stores, which have endeared the president with the country's vast numbers of poor. Maduro has vowed to block a return to past policies that he said had benefited the wealthy.

 

"Our people will never again see the bourgeoisie plundering this country," Maduro said, adding, "Better to be dead than traitors to the people and to Chavez!"

 

That loyalty made Maduro a logical choice, political observers said.

 

"Maduro combines two characteristics that influenced Chavez in his decision to designate him as successor: first, his loyalty to the party leadership, and second, his positions in favor of popular measures," such as social programs for the poor, said Steve Ellner, a political scientist at Venezuela's University of Oriente.

In his youth, Maduro drove a bus for the Caracas Metro transit system and later became a union leader."

.....

Maduro "is perceived by Chavez as a negotiator with diplomatic skills who could potentially gather the support of the different factions and keep it united in the difficult months ahead," said Diego Moya-Ocampos, an analyst with the London-based consulting firm IHS Global Insight.

 

"Nevertheless, he is not necessarily perceived as such within all the top ranks of the ruling United Socialist Party of Venezuela and the armed forces," Moya-Ocampos added.

 

Jennifer McCoy, a political science professor at Georgia State University, described Maduro as an easygoing man who has shown a willingness to talk with government opponents.

"He's always been someone who is easy to talk to," said McCoy, director of the Americas program at the Carter Center, which helped the Organization of American States facilitate dialogue between the government and opposition after a 2002 coup that briefly ousted Chavez.

 

Maduro was always willing "to discuss the issues, and I think that's really important going forward for Venezuela," McCoy said.

Before Chavez underwent his latest operation in December, he explained why he had chosen Maduro:

 

"He's one of the young leaders with the greatest ability to continue, if I'm unable to — God knows what he does — if I'm unable to, to continue with his firm hand, with his gaze, with his heart of a man of the people, with his gift for people, with his intelligence, with the international recognition he's earned, with his leadership, leading the presidency."

Now that Chavez has died will Obama reach out more to Venezuela and attend his funeral?? Many in Chavez party are pro-Cuba and pro-communist, however many countries have depended upon Chavez and Venezuela to keep their economies strong through the oil industry. However, there are many in the Chavez party who are not as socialist as Chavez, but his successor is seen as a hardline socialist like Chavez.

The 5 Worst/Recent Mass Murders in the USA (with a Firearm) Commited by Democrats&Three Under Obama's Watch

The 5 Worst/Recent Mass Murders in the USA (with a Firearm) Commited by Democrats&Three Under Obama's Watch | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
The source of information for this news post came from Roger Hedgecock's 1/17/13 radio show. Here's the link. Fast forward to 21:13 for Roger's comments.
littlebytesnews's insight:

The five worst mass killings have a common thread. Hint #1: None of them belonged to the NRA:

Ft Hood~~~ Registered Democrat and radical Muslim who supported Al Qaeda and Hamas

Columbine ~~~ Too young to vote; both families were registered Democrats and progressive liberals

Virginia Tech ~~~ Wrote hate mail to President Bush and to his staff ~ Registered Democrat

Colorado Theater ~~~ Registered Democrat; staff worker on the Obama campaign; Occupy Wall Street participant; progressive liberal

Connecticut School Shooter- ~~~ Registered Democrat; hated Christians.

Common thread is that all of these shooters were progressive liberal Democrats. Check the story link below.

Raid on home of Twitter user suspected of spreading Chávez health rumours

Raid on home of Twitter user suspected of spreading Chávez health rumours | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
Alleged microblogger is cousin of prominent opposition journalist who has been critical of the Venezuelan government

 

Venezuelan intelligence officers have raided the home of a Twitter user suspected of spreading destabilising rumours about the health of Hugo Chávez ahead of an inauguration that the ailing president looks increasingly unlikely to attend.

The alleged microblogger, Federico Medina Ravell is the cousin of a prominent opposition figure, prompting concerns that a long-simmering "information war" could be escalating as the government and its opponents try to fill the vacuum left by a leader who has not been seen or heard in public since he flew to Cuba for emergency cancer surgery a month ago.

The team of Sebin (Bolivarian National Intelligence Service) officers confiscated several computers from Medina's home in Valencia on Sunday night, according to domestic newspapers.

Medina is the cousin of Alberto Federico Ravell, a well-known opposition journalist and co-founder of Globovision, a major news broadcaster and staunch critic of the Chávez government.

Medina, who was not at home, is accused of instigating terrorism through social networking sites. He is said to be behind the@LucioQuincioC Twitter account, which has claimed that Chávez will not return from Havana.

The account remains active and claims to be a collaboration between 20 bloggers in eight cities, mostly overseas. Other Twitter users are mocking Sebin by claiming to have spotted@LucioQuincioC elsewhere, including the peaks of the Andes and drinking cocoa in Calgary.

The raid underpins the heightened political sensitivity ahead of a scheduled swearing-in ceremony on Thursday that seems likely to be postponed amid uncertainty about both Chávez's health and what happens when a president-elect cannot attend his inauguration.

An official health bulletin last week said the president was suffering from complications brought on by a severe lung infection after surgery. The opposition have demanded more detailed information about his prognosis. Foreign news organisations and Twitter accounts have spread rumours that he is in a coma, on a life support system or dead.

One tweet from an account called @estebangerbasi, which has almost 80,000 followers, has called for a nationwide civic strike on 10 January if the inauguration fails to take place, prompting accusations of a coup d'etat in the making from both camps.

Venezuela's vice-president, Nicolás Maduro, rebutted both the speculation and the call for protests on Monday.

Race baiter @RevJJackson Calls For U.N. Investigation Of America Over Trayvon Martin Case

Race baiter @RevJJackson Calls For U.N. Investigation Of America Over Trayvon Martin Case | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it

Excepted from National Review Online: Calls for Congress to hold hearings on the death of Trayvon Martin don’t go far enough for Jesse Jackson: He’s demanding international oversight. The reverend wants the United Nations Human Rights Council to investigate the case as well.

“And it’s time to call on the United Nations Human Rights Commission for an in-depth investigation of whether the U.S. is upholding its obligations under international human-rights laws and treaties,” Jackson said. (CNS.com notes that the Human Rights Commission was actually replaced by the Human Rights Council in 2006.)

U.N. officials, including the council’s top official, weighed in on the case when it first began to unfold. High Commissioner Navi Pillay called for an investigation last year. Other committees associated with the council pointed to the case in terms of race as well and criticized Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” laws.

The HRC is often criticized for being composed of nations notable for their own human-rights violations. Last year the terms of China, Cuba, and Saudi Arabia expired, but Pakistan and Venezuela remain members. Keep reading

Excerpted from Biz Pac Review: Veteran race-baiter Jesse Jackson is asking the United Nations to get involved in the case of George Zimmerman’s acquittal in the shooting of Trayvon Martin.

In a column published Monday in the Chicago Sun-Times, Jackson called for “a national investigation of the racial context that led to Trayvon Martin’s slaying” by Congress.

“And it’s time to call on the United Nations Human Rights Commission for an in-depth investigation of whether the U.S. is upholding its obligations under international human rights laws and treaties.”

It’s an empty statement – the U.N. can’t even bring itself to get involved when a criminal court convicts someone of a spurious crime – like when Iranian women are stoned to death for adultery.

littlebytesnews's insight:

Now I've heard it all...when does the race baiting end?? These people will stop at nothing to destroy what MLK and the GOP have united in the last 50years of race relations. Heck they are still crying racism even after most whites elected the first black president twice!!

Honduran Cops, The Latest U.S.-Backed Killers » An anti-American essay or the truth? | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
Honduran Cops, The Latest U.S.-Backed Killers

 

by NICK ALEXANDROV

Official U.S. support for bands of killers dates back to the nation’s inception, likely one reason H. Rap Brown called violence “as American as cherry pie.” The country’s founding father helped start the trend when he sent General John Sullivan to Iroquois territory in 1779, giving him explicit instructions “that the country may not be merely overrun, but destroyed.” “It will be essential to ruin their crops,” the Town Destroyer—as Washington became known—emphasized. Sullivan and his men brought their adventure to a close when they “skinned the bodies of Indians from the hips downward, to make boot tops or leggings,” historian Ernest Cruikshank wrote in the late 1800s, prompting a contemporary, John Watts de Peyster, to wonder “which were the savages, the Continental troops or the Indians,” in the situation just described.

Scholars today tend to remark only that Washington seems “more a monument than a man,” as Gordon Wood never tires of pointing out; Wood spoke a month ago at an event celebrating Washington’s birthday, beginning with the premise that the first U.S. president was great, and proceeding from there. Bertrand Russell once criticized medieval philosophy for assuming in advance it knew the truth, thereby avoiding genuine inquiry—still apparently a prerequisite for academic success, given Wood’s reputation.

The belief that indigenous groups wasted the opportunities the land provided drove policies of dispossession and extermination, the latter being the term Jefferson, Jackson, and other luminaries favored. Little wonder Hitler admired this facet of U.S. history. During the California Gold Rush, whites murdered and raped the region’s native inhabitants, some of whom had known there was gold in the area, without valuing it as an exploitable resource. What could the land’s rightful owners do with such people? “Why not annihilation?” Wizard of Oz author L. Frank Baum asked in an 1890 editorial, capturing the zeitgeist.

These assumptions about the right to control territories, and the obstacles blocking enlightened developers from achieving their aims, grew more expansive after the Native American genocide. As WWII drew to a close, U.S. planners outlined a system of “foreign missions throughout the world” in conformity with corporate aims. “We are colonizing to some extent,” Representative Eugene Worley (D-TX) affirmed, not quite doing justice to Washington’s plans to copy the British imperial model—“a good goal to shoot at, because they are the masters,” the American Maritime Council’s John E. Otterson argued, voicing views his audience, a House subcommittee, received well. After listening to Assistant Secretary of State Adolf Berle’s 1943 discussion of U.S. intentions to govern the planet’s skies, Representative Charles A. Eaton (R-NJ) asked him to “define for us the difference in principle between Mr. Hitler’s program to obtain control of all land and all peoples and all oceans and seas, and the proposed program now for America to obtain control of all the air on earth[.]”

One of Eaton’s colleagues clarified the distinction: the U.S. sought “world power as trustee for civilization,” while Hitler wanted it merely “for the benefit of a bunch of Nazi gangsters.” Any student of U.S. history should have been able to recognize the country’s pure intentions—and if, for some reason, the examples of Town Destroyer and the Gold Rush proved unpersuasive, the coming decades would further testify to its benevolence. In 1976, we see that Secretary of State Kissinger encouraged the Argentine government to carry on with its dirty war, in which the military “disappeared” as many as 30,000 people. “The quicker you succeed the better,” the Nobel Peace Laureate stressed, and by the late ’70s the CIA was bringing Argentine officers into Honduras, so they could teach their Central American counterparts what they had mastered.

Doris Rosibel Benavides Tarrius, a young psychologist, experienced first-hand the Honduran students’ aptitude. Security forces abducted her in March 1987, taking her to a facility where they raped her, and strung her up on a metal bar to shock her feet and breasts, in what was called an “airplane position.” A decade earlier, an Argentine mechanic named Marcos Queipo watched as military planes passed over the Paraná Delta, dropping mysterious packages that plummeted to the riverbanks far below. Horacio Verbitsky, an investigative journalist, learned about these flights years later, when a stranger approached him in the Buenos Aires subway. “I want to talk to you,” the man said, explaining he had helped prosecute the dirty war. “You’ll see that we did things worse than the Nazis,” Adolfo Scilingo continued, subsequently telling of how he pushed several thousand suspected subversives, each drugged into a stupor but still alive, out of airplanes. Queipo saw some of their bodies in the packages he opened, though most of the murdered have never been found.

The killings continue in Honduras, where violence targeting lawyers, human rights defenders, LGBT people, women and others has intensified since the June 2009 coup. Two School of the Americas graduates helped topple the democratically-elected leader that month, and Obama supported the ensuing presidential election, a farce the mainstream media would have ridiculed had it taken place in, say, Venezuela. Last fall, the Honduran Commission of Truth identified several patterns of repression endangering the public, which the World Bank never mentions in the summary of its “Safe Municipalities Project,” ostensibly aimed at promoting “citizen security.” One of the Bank’s real goals seems to be expanding the Honduran police’s reach into areas like Choloma—“a dustbin industrial mecca for maquiladoras,” as scholar-activist Adrienne Pine described it. Juan Carlos Bonilla, accused of extrajudicial killings, oversees the entire Honduran National Police, even though the State Department tried to claim otherwise, saying it directed U.S. funds only to vetted units outside his purview.

littlebytesnews's insight:

I know there are many on the left, like Obama, who believe the US has oppressed other countries and some liberal educators are teaching this in history classes and teaching students that US policy is the reason Muslim terrorists and others hate America. Yet they fail to see the good we have done as a country and around the world, as millions want to immigrate here every year and many come here illegally paying human traffickers to bring them here or sneaking across our borders.

If the US is such a horrible country why do so many people want to live here? Why do those who claim to hate us and call themselves Americans continue to live here??

 

I'm not a historian but this essay at "Counterpunch'' sounds rather anti-American. While I don't believe the US should police the world, we do have to maintain a status of power otherwise the void will be filled by countries like Communist China, Russia, or others who do not have the best interests of human rights and freedom in mind. How much of this essay is factual to you??

He is exposing himself more and more whether the mainstream media tries to cover for him or not, it's getting harder and harder to cover the lies and destruction, especially now that he's using the sequester cuts to abuse his power against the people and reducing national security.

Most countries used the crash as an unanticipated opportunity to restructure their economies....Britain did not. The underlying basis of Britain's growth is property fueled and indicates that Britain has not learnt from crisis of the last 15 years.

Serrano: “Chavez Changed the Conversation In Latin America”

Washington, DC – March 5, 2013 –Congressman José E. Serrano today mourned the death of President Hugo Chavez of Venezuela.

“President Chavez was a controversial leader. But at his core he was a man who came from very little and used his unique talents and gifts to try to lift up the people and the communities that reflected his impoverished roots. He believed that the government of the country should be used to empower the masses, not the few. He understood democracy and basic human desires for a dignified life. His legacy in his nation, and in the hemisphere, will be assured as the people he inspired continue to strive for a better life for the poor and downtrodden.”

littlebytesnews's insight:

What a delusional nutcase..no wonder DEMs support Obama. Obama is following the same path to socialism as Chavez did. He believed in redistribution of wealth as well and claimed to support the poor, but all he did was keep the poor down. He didn't empower them through socialism, he made them dependent on the government. That is not empowerment!

Looney Liberal Creates Violent ‘Shoot Sandy Hook Kids’ Video Game

Looney Liberal Creates Violent ‘Shoot Sandy Hook Kids’ Video Game | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it

This game will allow you to be Adam Lanza, and shoot up elementary school kids in a simulation of Sandy Hook Elementary. Gizmo01942?s ‘Class Warfare’ aims to ‘recreate the tragic events that happened in Newtown Connecticut using a video game.’ The game will virtually recreate the building, classrooms and even students from Sandy Hook. Gizmo01942nifty claims he is making this game for a ‘nifty sociological experiment.’

Gizmo01942, responding to another post writes, “I’ll definitely have child death screams, but no tutorials,” and plans to include “clear and offensive references to autism.” The implication here is that the gamer “plays” as Adam Lanza — the Sandy Hook murderer.

The anonymous author has made his reasoning for creating the game clear: “I’m doing this as my own way to deal with the events, and releasing only because it will entertain you guys, and any controversy it generates will serve as a nifty sociological experiment.”

 

littlebytesnews's insight:

He must have issues with getting enough attention if he is doing this to create controversy and as a “sociological experiment”.

Liberalism has no bounds. They don’t have common sense, nor compassion, yet they claim the GOP are heartless and don’t care if women and children are left without health care,etc. They are the party of extremes from ‘sociological experiments’ in brainwashing to abortion on demand up until 40 weeks to euthanasia and voting against God three times at their National Convention in November 2012. They are sick and twisted. It’s no wonder “The 5 Worst/Recent Mass Murders in the USA (with a Firearm) were Commited by Democrats[&three were Under Obama's Watch]” http://sco.lt/5dwFYP

Mark Levin: Feds Buying Ammo In Anticipation Of Total Collapse Of U.S. Economy, Society « Pat Dollard | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it

Excerpted from The Daily Caller: On Friday’s night broadcast of his radio show, Mark Levin speculated that the federal government is stockpiling ammunition to ensure the rule of law in the event of a total societal and economic collapse.

On Feb. 8, Investor’s Business Daily editorial writer Andrew Malcolm penned a piece about the Department of Homeland Security amassing what he called “sufficient firepower to shoot every American about five times –including illegal immigrants,” or more than 1.6 billion bullets.

littlebytesnews's insight:

UPDATE 2/21/13:

A federal agent called into the Michael Savage show tonight and said they/DHS do use hollow point ammo to target practice but has no idea why DHS is buying so much ammo. A contractor and weapons manufacturer also called in and said he thinks they are contracting that amount to make it more difficult for citizens to purchase ammo and to increase prices in order to dry up the market. The feds are also making it more difficult for overseas shipments of ammo and firearms to come into the US. He said very few companies who make ammo make all the components that go into the weapons. 

 

More:

Either they are preparing for an economic collapse and martial law or they are preparing for civil war against 'we the people' as our country continues to stagnate and fail economically under the liberal/communist regime. They are going to turn us into another Greece or Venezuela if things continue in the direction they are going economically.

 

As far as gun rights, they could also be buying out stocks of ammunition and weapons to make it more difficult for law abiding Americans to purchase their own, thus resulting in a form of gun control without passing a law through Congress.

Anything this administration does should be questioned, as they should not and can not be trusted.
