Back again: Fidel Castro death rumours

A venezuelan investigative journalist, one of the most popular and respected ones in Venezuela, Patricia Poleo, daughter of Rafael Poleo, another highlighted Venezuela journalist, both chased by President Carlos Andrés Pérez, and now by Chavez regime has just published on her column on El Nuevo País, a local newspaper managed by his father that the announcement of Fidel Castro death could be made this weekend.

According to her, all is already planned and that was the reason Chavez suspended his travel to Africa.
But I just have a question. Is she sure about her sources?, because I think there could be the possibility that Chavez regime put some insiders (or bought some sources) to create untrue stories and provoke those investigative journalists follow that threat and not other real threats, as, for example the links between Chavez and the Suitcase scandals.

added on September 1st:

WASHINGTON (AFP) - The United States suggested Monday that the latest round of rumours of ailing Cuban leader Fidel Castro's death might have been started by the government.

"I would say that the Cuban government has always been very good at stirring the nest whenever they felt the need to," said Gonzo Gallegos, a State Department spokesman.

Politics: Chavez admited his regime is "Violent" and "Explosive"

Today on a flamboyant, populist, ridiculous circus act of Hugo Chavez new political party PSUV, the dictator has just said

I'm going to change the color of the book from blue to red, the entire constitution will be red from top to bottom.

And that's not the only pompous bizarre crazy thing he said (emulating a Bonaparte mad guy if you ask me). He also said:

The only political factor capable of conduct a HURRICANE, VIOLENT AND EXPLOSIVE process is here inside the Poliedro
Poliedro is a popular place on Caracas, regularly used to performing acts, concerts, shows and other events, it is like the Madison Square Garden of Venezuela.

Also Hugo Chavez used the word "pulverize" to express what he is going to do with the opponents in Venezuela.

This crazy Nazi-like event was called "National Assembly of Socialist Battalions". Always thinking as military, always expressing himself using violent speech, and more warlike than any republican US government that I can recall. "Don't forget that oligarchs of trashes" also said Chavez in the most otrageous , lack of lithium speeches that we could here of Chavez.

This happened just a day after former President, Vice-President, Justice affairs ministry and current Miranda State governor, Diosdado Cabello (next to found an airline company among his brother) said that only Chavez should be in the presidency and need to stay forever and everybody that doesn't like Chavez or doesn't like the process should go away from Venezuela.

An I have "Psychotic dissociation" according to Vheadline's writers Carlos Pietri.

By the way, Vheadline is not the only "red from top to bottom" site dedicated to write news about Venezuela with US citizen as target, There is also Venezuelanalysis, so you are warned to not follow those sites. The best site to read articles about Venezuela is VCrisis and the for the latest news you could check the English section of El Universal newspaper, online edition, the most popular and read newspaper in Venezuela.

Politics: Chavez Provokes Commotion on ABC Islands

The last announce of Lt. Cl. Hugo Chavez to reform the National Constitution and introduce the Marine Territorial figure, with everything up to 200 sea miles at north border belonging to Venezuela has provoked commotion and angry on Dutch Islands Aruba, Curaçao and Bonaire (the ABC's) because their proximity to Venezuela (Only 40 miles approached).
The Venezuelan president Hugo Chávez cannot come to the Antilles and Aruba, he must let clear that he cannot unilaterally move sea borders to incorporate Kingdom area. If Chavez want to use army forces, then Minister Maxime Verhagen(1) should also be up to move military forces as response.
This was expressed by Dutch parliament member Hans van Baalen (VVD) during a press meeting on Dutch Parliament. Van Baalen emphasised that "Chavez should let his hands out of our Falklands''. Verhagen assumed, however, that Venezuela will continue to respect the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Dutch Kingdom as a good neighbour, thus he let know Monday. He also ask Dutch ambassador in Venezuela to commissioned Venezuelan authorities to ask an explanation.

La Prensa newspaper from Curaçao refers this as "Wake up Call" on and article by Bob Harms titled "Chavez and our sovereignty".

Recent declaration of President of Venezuela Hugo Chavez, that Venezuela will considered to take everything up to 200 miles of their cost as part of their integral territory, serve to us as a "wake up call". And beyond that, it serves as a warn to us to stop thinking on what we own and start thinking as sovereign people, and not as colony either from the Netherlands or Venezuela.

Venezuela: Chavez Let Glimpse Rumours Could be True

Today, on his TV program "Alo Presidente!", Lt. Cl. Hugo Chavez could had just confirmed those rumours about uneasiness between Military forces and the possibility of a subversion on The National Guard are true.

The conspiracy has already begun. The messages are circulating in the barracks. The hand of the CIA, the empire, is behind this... ...They are trying for a coup.

Chavez also said Venezuela will purchase thousands of Russian-made semiautomatic rifles with telescopic sights as part of preparations for a possible guerrilla-style war against the United States. He warned U.S. soldiers that they would become targets if the United States were to invade.

So, this could be 2 things:

  1. The rumours are true, National Guard soldiers are upset for the latest announce on changes on the National Constitution, the change on the structure of Military Forces for a guerrilla style structure and also for the upcoming creation of Popular Bolivarian Militias, that, according to US government it could be designated as terrorist group, or
  2. This is just a big smoke screen tactically made by Chavez to cover up the Suit-Gate scandal and to create a sort of instability that make impact on oil prices. Remember he is a Lieutenant Colonel.
But the fact he said that just today about US government has sending messages to Military Forces to provoke a coup in Venezuela are clear fact that those rumours are something.

Politics: Rumours, Rumours, Rumours

Ok, I don't want to write down all rumours about each subject I heard every day. But this night of August 17 the rumours about the death of Fidel Castro are strong enough that motivate me to write this post.

Specially in Venezuela and Miami the rumours are everywhere, some sites on Internet are commenting this. EVEN PEREZ HILTON!

I've been checking Cubavision International just in case but nothing yet.

One of the sites commenting the health status of Fidel Castro is
According to Javier Oyarzabal, information from Cuban sources Fidel Castro health status is on "Final Phase" and even, he could be dead. Also, according to those sources, 4 military soldiers has been apprehended for investigate the health status of Fidel Castro.

added on august 19:

Chavez in his today's TV show start saying "Fidel Castro is well alive". So with this, the possibilities that he is lying are stronger, also with the fact that Fidel is already dead. Exactly when he said "Vladimiro Montesinos is not in Venezuela", turn was he indeed was in Venezuela.

Other Rumours in Venezuela:

Regarding Venezuela, since last night there are rumours about some strange movements in some military bases, apparently yesterday August 16, there was a sort of subversion on Military base Nº51 in Paraiso area in Caracas, among with another one in Puerto La Cruz, Anzoategui State. Another report says there was some tanks moving on Tazón area, outside Caracas. Nothing confirmed yet.

added on August 18:

There are reports about some tanks seen in Valencia in Carabobo State. All rumours about this are pointing on some kind of uneasiness among National Guard members because the announce of Chavez to change the structure of the Army Forces in Venezuela, the change of National Guard title for Territorial Bolivarian Guard, and the creation of Militias. Apparently there are 20 soldiers apprehended, but I don't have confirmation on any of this. It's supposed that in Puerto La Cruz, Anzoategui State, Military Airbase is closed to any member of military forces and workers, only Cuban and Russian military soldiers get access, and they are preparing Sukhoi airplanes.

Venezuela: More and more and more protests

Early this day some residents from Caracas block the Km 0 of the Panamericana Highway, to protest against the high increase of the insecurity (robbery and assassinations) in Venezuela. The protests also reach Los Teques city, few kilometers at south of Caracas east side.

In other part of Venezuela, in the city of Valencia, Carabobo State, patients from a public hospital (Ciudad Hospitalaría Enrique Tejera) are chained at the main doors of the hospital to protest for the sacked of an important Doctor, Dra. Heidi Mago, apparently for political reasons.

This Doctor has denounced for some time ago, a contamination on the Hospital, involving a bacteria, that has been causing death inside the Hospital's Patients. Because of those denounces, the Government just fired her.

Venezuela: Former Coupist Friend of Chavez Willing to Head and Armed Fight against Him

Cl. (retired) Yoel Acosta Chirinos, a former friend of Chavez who help him on February 4th 1992 coup d'état expressed yesterday August 15, on a TV show strong critics against Chavez regime and the new constitution reform.

This video is from a TV show called "Mar de Fondo" from Anzoategui State TV Channel Orbita Tv.

The video starts with a question made by the host reporter:

Host: "But you are saying you are willing to do everything that would be necessary to stop this constitutional reform?"

Cl. Acosta Chirinos: "Yes, of course"

Host: "But you are willing to seize the weapons again to stop this reform"

Cl. Acosta Chirinos: "if it's necessary to do that, if it's necessary to do that, I will do it".

I don't know If this former closed friend of Chavez are saying the true, or this is just another "Red Cape" made by Chavez Regime.

Cl. Yoel Acosta Chirinos was a Governor of Falcón State, support by Chavez himself. Also Cl. Acosta Chirinos was a founder of MBR-200 a sort of political movement which Chavez made the coup against President Carlos Andrés Pérez in 1992, and some years later changed it to political party named Fifth Republic Movement (MVR), that now Chavez dissolved to create the extremist socialist group PSUV (Socialist United Party from Venezuela).

Chavez Supporters to confront Opposition Rally in Caracas

The shadow of April 11 took Caracas today as some Chavez supporters has been taking the surrounding area of Petroleos de Venezuela building while a big opposition rally is on development now with the Petroleos de Venezuela building as ending point, just where those Chavez supporters are.

The opposition rally has all the permission, while the Pro-Chavez is just a sudden gathering, but it is probably sure some leaders of Chavez regime called this reunion to confront the rally of the opposition, just like the April 11, 2002 rally.

The opposition political party COPEI called this rally to protest against the corruption on the mayor Venezuela Oil Company and ask for the resign of the current President, Ministry of People's Power for Energy, Rafael Ramirez for the Suit-Gate case.

Chavez supporters have said that they won't permit the pass of the rally into the building area. They are shouting "No Pasarán" ("They won't pass through")

The rally will start on a couple of minutes (12:18pm) and they will walk for 6 blocks from Chacaito to PDVSA building in La Campiña.

The Energy Ministry is right now at the pro-chavez gathering saying the same speech Chavez Regime say

This are going on the same way of the protests of April 11, 2002.

Early this day, police force (DISIP) found 2 black suitcases abandoned near the PDVSA building. According to this under Chavez control police forces, the suitcases have some wired system.

What a coincidence Caracas subway system is closed for a supposed Power System Failure?

Also today, at 6:00pm Lt. Cl. Hugo Chavez will present at the National Assembly the new constitution he want for Venezuela, a constitution with the same structure of Cuba and the extinct Soviet Union.


  • Ministry Ramirez is calling his followers to go to the National Assembly
  • Ministry Ramirez just said "We are here on combat attitude".
  • Pictures of the opposition rally (called "Maletinazo") they are marching with suitcases:
added at 1:55pm:
  • Opposition party COPEI has decided to stay in Plaza Brion on Chacaito and not go with the rally until PDVSA building to avoid confrontation with Chavez supporters. This is the same tactic Chavez regime has implementing over recent years to stop opposition protests.
This is a clear fact that Venezuela is not for everyone, it is just for Chavez and his gangs

Power Supply Failure on Caracas Subway System

The Caracas subway system Metro de Caracas woke up closed today because a power failure on the system. Authorities from the company CAMETRO, that manage the subway system said the power supply will be back on the next hours.

The Caracas subway system is under control of the Chavez regime.

Few weeks ago, Caracas subway system was on the headline news because a collision between 2 trains, the first one in the history of this system. A couple of years ago the maintenance manager was fired, he alleged it was because he doesn't support Chavez views.

Then, 2 hours later a maidservant came in and said "How you know Mr- Durán lives here, family Hernández lives here...".

Another hour later and finally, Mr. Durán showed up, among with his brother and son. They took a Chevrolet Impala car and leave the place, but first, Mr Durán said "Antonini lives at Ocean Club".

In that place anybody respond at the apartment 301, property of Antonini, the phone number now come up with a fax signal, and in the phone number of one of his business partners, the voice machine was change to "No, I'm not Abad, I have his cellphone for the weekend, I know nothing".

This is happening ate the same time, one Venezuelan journalist, Leocenis García has denounced that the $800.00 are property of Rafaél Ramirez, another journalist who was mysteriously detained by Venezuelan authorities on a restaurant in Caracas, after catching a video recording who Ramirez could be seen with other persons making some strange business, apparently for some information regarding Hugo Chavez regime. It is important to say that all of these journalist have persons working as "sources of investigation" to get some information they after make public on newspapers.

This story is getting very weird each time. If you check a previous article on this blog about this story, you could see a comment post by some person saying that the destiny of that money was the terrorist group FARC in Colombia as a part of some negotiation Chavez has been doing to release Ingrid Betancourt, a former Colombian presidential candidate who is being captive by this group. Another journalist from Venezuela, Patricia Poleo and according to her sources, said some weeks ago that Ingrid Betancourt is in Venezuela and Chavez is planning her release.

Definitely, this story are getting as weird as the J.J. Abrams untitled movie project. In Venezuela and Argentina people start naming this story as the "SUIT-GATE" (Maletín-Gate in Spanish).


The plane with the money apparently took off from ramp number 4 at Simon Bolivar International Airport, Maiquetia, Venezuela (the same ramp where people from the airport has been denouncing arriving of flights from Teheran and Cuba carried with people without ID's and mysterious wooden boxes, and it also the PRESIDENTIAL RAMP) with the complicity of the manager of the Airport's customs officer
Marianela Martínez Yegres.

Intertel Telecom and Tech Milk Inc, both companies founded in USA, and VP of the oil company Venoco in Venezuela.

Venezuela: Public Drivers on a Sudden Strike

Capital of Venezuela awoke with the public drivers from the municipality of Sucre (at the very east of the City) on a sudden strike. They have blocked the traffic on a road distributor (Distribudor Metropolitano) at the zone known as Terrazas del Avila and Petare Redoma.

They decided to do this protest for the assassination of 2 co-workers last Friday. They also say to be victims of about 25 daily holdups. They are asking the presence of authorities from Miranda State Government and the Ministry of People's Power of Interior and Justice to take action against those problems.

The protest is guarded by military forces and few police officers.

Protesters also are saying the insecurity problems had started as result of a high increment of armed gangs on the zone.

That's quite not ok as the Mayor of Caracas ruled about the law enforcement officer presence on the street saying at every protest the first group to came and take action would be the municipality police, next the Metropolitan Police, and next, it thing get out of control the army forces, but this looks like the Government sent the army forces first.

The protest are reported by a local radio (Union Radio) and Globovision

Last Wednesday public drivers (including taxi drivers) from Margarita Island make a strike by stopping all their activities for that day.

Hugo Chavez Could Have Serious Back Problem

According to the columnist Miguel Salazar from Venezuelan weekly publication "Las Verdades de Miguel" Chavez has a serious back problem and he refuse to go under surgery.

Apparently Lt. Cl. Hugo Chavez (as I refuse to call him President, based on article 350 of Venezuelan Constitution) has a terrible disease that could be controlled only if he went under surgery. At the moment he receive strong pain reliever and this could explain his bad humour. Also he doesn't want to go under surgery because the whole officialism movement (Chavismo) is under a crisis, and an example of this are the frequently fights between the MVR (now PSUV) party members and PODEMOS members. Also there are strong struggles between the Governor of Anzoategui State, a former Assembly Deputy an a strong Chavez supporter, Tarek William Saab, and some mayors of that state.

At the end, if he decide to go under surgery, it would be take a total control over a Hospital at least for one month.

Chavez could had been suffering from these disease for a long time ago, and this has been affecting his mood, and consequently his political decisions. The disease could involve a severe injured on the cervical, that needs a surgery procedure and at least 30 days of rest.

There are worry among the very closer ones to the President for each day passing through. The treatment has becoming more painful, and he needs more analgesic doses to relieve the pain.
Now the problem is that he doesn't want to go outside Venezuela for the surgery and he is not sure about how could his body respond to that surgery. Also, according to this journalist the thing that keep Chavez picky is the division on his team. Apparently there are 5 groups; one group are next to the current Miranda State Governor and former Vice-President Diosdado Cabello (some lady that used to work with him said "if you think Chavez is mean you don't know Diosdado Cabello!"); another group are next to the current Ministry of People's Power for Interior and Justice Affair, Pedro Carreño; another group that came from the leadership of the National Assembly and support the former National Assembly President, Nicolas Maduro (current Foreign Affairs Ministry) and the current president of the National Assembly, Cilia Flores (Maduro's wife); a fourth group is with the Ministry of Peoples' Power for Planning and Development, Jorge Giordani (one of the few ministries that keeps working with Chavez since the early stages of Chavez Administration) and a fifth group are with the bullies Assembly Deputies, Iris Varela and Luis Tascon.
