Chavez dead: VP says cancer an ‘attack’ by enemies

But of course

NBC News reports that hours before Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez died at age 58, his second-in-command accused Chavez’ 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.

Americans will remember the repressive leader for his mocking 2006 denunciation of President George W. Bush before the United Nations General Assembly — calling him “the devil” who thinks he is “the owner of the world.”

“Yesterday, the devil came here,” said Chavez, alluding to Bush’s appearance before the General Assembly the previous day. “Right here. Right here. And it smells of sulfur still today, this table that I am now standing in front of.” 

In rambling remarks translated from Spanish, he said the United States is “the gravest threat looking over our planet, placing at risk the very survival of the human species.”

Then Chavez dramatically made the sign of the cross, brought his hands together as if in prayer and glanced toward the ceiling. “It smells of sulfur here, but God is with us, and I embrace you all,” he said. “May God bless us all. Good day to you.”

Good day, Hugo.

    Remember too that Hugo endorsed his friend Barack.

  2. sgtflapjaw says:

    The big question……Will Barack attend the funeral?

  3. PeeJay says:

    I suspect the good commandante is getting his fill of sulphur at this very hour……. Adios amigo.

    The only good Commie is a dead Commie.

    I was listening to Greta Van Sustern and heard her say of Chavez, “He cozied up to Iran and Cuba.” She omitted the name “Barack Obama.” I wonder if that was by design or memory lapse….?

    The important thing is who will replace him.

    • eubykdisop says:

      We have to wait for you to get over shedding tears for your beloved Commie, Chavez, first, Westnash.

    May God forgive me, but, YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!

    • Orion says:

      I suspect God was too busy cheering himself to be concerned with forgiving you, Delilah! ;-)
      Chavez was the personification of evil.

  8. Westnash says:

    Same is true of the Castro’s. The USA has begun to develop relations in Cuba but is busy kow towing to the Cuban American interests in Florida. The USA should set an example by not restricting its citizens ability to visit or spend $$ in Cuba. The people there would have been much better off if Americans….along with current Canadians who visit as tourists were allowed the choice to do the same. Instead we throw away $$$$$$$ in Haiti which results in nothing but corruption.

      Obviously, Euby, it is easy for you to blame Marxism, but impossible to offer a solution for the Arizona Republicans.”

      From Obama to Castro, Westnash has never heard of a Marxist he didn’t love.

    • eubykdisop says:

      Well, of course, Westnash! Considering your concerns about “blaming” Marxism, you wouldn’t want to “blame” a Marxist regime either!

    Still going to the movies? THIS is who you are supporting with your ticket purchases:
    Filmmaker Oliver Stone who says, “I mourn a great hero.”

    Actor Sean Penn:
    “I lost a friend.”
    “Venezuela and its revolution will endure under the proven leadership of Vice President Maduro.” .

    These people are leftist America haters who have gotten very rich from movie goers. They have dedicated their lives to “revolution,” and anti-Americanism. Stop supporting them and their ilk.. Read books, go for a walk, talk to a valued friend or loved one, take up tennis. Stop going to the movies.

    Sean Penn gives 100% of his donations to liberals.

    Oliver Stone, has given thousands to Obama and other liberals.

    Here is how our tax dollars get thrown away:–politics.html

    McCain was blowing about success in Iraq, when all it was was the waste of American lives and wrecking our economy.

    • eubykdisop says:

      No, Westnash, this is how you think our tax dollars are being thrown away:

      “Westnash says:

      I would propose an immediate 10% cut in all military expenditures including salaries. All of us can get by on 9 out of 10…..the govt. can as well…it is nothing but would make a huge dent in the problem.”

      “Westnash says:

      What I worry that the Secure Our Borders bunch really wants is to spend Billions more in hiring and fences which do nothing but increase the size of Govt.”

    Do you suppose McFlake will attend the funeral? Since he admires Castro so much he might want to honor Castro’s protege.

    • Steve says:

      What brilliance, Hagar! It wouldn’t be politically expedient, but I’ll bet he thought of it. When Fidel Castro dies, I fully expect Flake to attend the funeral. He’ll consider it the opportunity to declare the door to the Communist country wide open.
