Vale Hugo: Chavez Dead, US Multinationals Celebrate

6 Mar

“VENEZUELA is mourning the death from cancer of President Hugo Chavez, a loss which has silenced the leading voice of the Latin American left and put the oil-rich nation on a path to early elections.”

Shortly before Mr Chavez’s death was announced, [Vice President] Mr Maduro expelled two US military attaches and accused Venezuela’s enemies of somehow afflicting the firebrand leftist with the cancer that eventually killed him.

I strongly recommend your watching this brilliant, eye-opening documentary. Don’t miss the final minutes –

In 2011 your humble blogger commended the actions of Hugo Chavez as a model to follow, in a blog criticising our political class for their ongoing, bipartisan, craven selling out of the best interests of Australia’s citizens to foreign multinational corporations.

Vale Hugo.

The Venezuelan president himself, before he died yesterday, wondered aloud whether the US government – or the banksters who own it – gave him, and its other leading Latin American enemies, cancer.

A little over a year ago, Chavez went on Venezuelan national radio and said: “I don’t know but… it is very odd that we have seen Lugo affected by cancer, Dilma when she was a candidate, me, going into an election year, not long ago Lula and now Cristina… It is very hard to explain, even with the law of probabilities, what has been happening to some leaders in Latin America. It’s at the very least strange, very strange.”

Strange indeed… so strange that if you think Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez, Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff, Paraguayan Fernando Lugo, and former Brazilian leader Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva – Latin America’s top anti-US empire leaders – all just happened to contract cancer around the same time by sheer chance, you must be some kind of crazy coincidence theorist.

John Perkins, in his bestselling book Confessions of an Economic Hit Man, supplies more evidence that the bankers that own the US government routinely murder heads of state, using private assassins as well as CIA killers.

Perkins, during his career as an “economic hit man,” gained first-hand knowledge about how the big international bankers maintain their empire in Latin America and elsewhere. Perkins’ job was to visit leaders of foreign countries and convince them to accept loans that could never be paid back. Why? The bankers want to force these nations into debt slavery. When the country goes bankrupt, the bankers seize the nation’s natural resources and establish complete control over its government and economy.

Perkins’ book is a must read.
