Math is hard in Venezuela (again) when it comes to cheating at vote counts.

More votes than people! The bald of the CNE that shows inflated votes in municipal
The Cooperator
Caracas, December 11.- The National Electoral Council (CNE) announced on Sunday night that the candidates of the United Socialist Party (PSUV) won in the most important city halls of the country as well as the Governorate of Zulia, in elections in the that 47.32% of the electoral patron participated

Zulia, the winner came out in the elections to elect governor Omar Prieto with 57.3% of the votes cast. In this state the elections were repeated since the previous governor, the opposition Juan Pablo Guanipa, refused to be sworn in before the ruling National Constituent Assembly when he did not recognize its validity, for which he was stripped of the position for which he was elected.

The vice president of the CNE, Sandra Oblitas, thanked the participation of citizens and reported that the results would be published on the agency's website to demonstrate the transparency of the process. However, once the ballot papers were released, the electoral body made a mistake, as they reported that Zulia was authorized to vote 963,981 people , however, Omar Prieto and Manuel Rosales added 1,223,506 votes, that is, 259,525 votes. plus.

But the irregularity does not remain there. The CNE points out that in its portal, only 448,170 Zulianos were paid, placing the abstention at 53.5%. That is to say that the Electoral Power recognizes an inconsistency of 75,336 votes.

More than 9 million Venezuelans from the electoral census-went to vote according to the figures of the National Electoral Council, a fact that has been branded as false by several opponents on Twitter.


Dang. More votes than people. AGAIN! You would think that Chavismo would have figured this out by now.

How the Chavista voting scam works

The reason why Motta Domínguez did not cast his vote
Eugenio Martínez, journalist specializing in electoral processes, said that the ruling party implements the technique of the "carousel" to guarantee their votes
DECEMBER 10, 2017 09:29 PM | UPDATED ON DECEMBER 11, 2017 06:53 AM

Eugenio Martínez, journalist specializing in electoral processes, explained why the Minister of Electric Power, Luis Motta Domínguez, did not deposit his ballot in the ticket box. He noted that the reason is that he used a technique called "carousel", used by the ruling party in order to ensure that the bearers of the country's card voted in favor of the PSUV.

Using his Twitter account, he wrote: "Motta Dominguez's story is simple to explain, and this is how the 'carousel' of Chavismo works in some municipalities, which is the way to guarantee that everyone who registers with the country's card votes for the PSUV ".

He said that during the voting process the voter must leave the national identity card in the red dot and then go to the center of the table. Then, at the moment of receiving the voucher of the electoral machine, instead of depositing it in the safe boxes, it is taken to the red point so that the card is returned. When the next voter arrives, he takes the voucher that was left, leaves the country card and repeats the same procedure.

This Sunday was recorded in a transmission of the State channel, Venezolana de Televisión (VTV), to the Minister Luis Motta Domínguez taking the voucher of its exercise to vote.

According to the electoral regulations, this action represents an electoral crime and stipulates sanctions.

In the video you can see how Motta Domínguez poses for the camera as if she were depositing the ballot and then removes the pose keeping the paper without depositing it and then puts it in her pocket.

Venezuela's Maduro bans opposition parties from future elections

Venezuela's Maduro bans opposition parties from presidential vote

Venezuela's President Nicolas Maduro announced Sunday that leading opposition parties will be barred from taking part in next year's presidential vote after they boycotted mayoral polls, in a move set to further consolidate his grip on power.

That includes the groups of key figures who have led street protests against his rule such as Henrique Capriles, Leopoldo Lopez and others, Maduro told reporters after casting his vote in the municipal polls.

"That's what the National Constituent Assembly set out," he said, referring to a controversial Maduro-allied special powers legislature whose legitimacy has been questioned by many in the international community.

"If they don't want elections, what are they doing? What's the alternative? (Civil) war?" the president asked, visibly angry.

While municipal elections were under way across the country, the Maduro clearly had his mind on the 2018 presidential race in which he plans to seek reelection -- despite an approval rating of around 30 percent.

Crisis-weary voters meanwhile appeared to be staying away in droves from mayoral elections that the opposition is already boycotting.


The National Constituent Assembly is the handpicked Chavista body selected by the PSUV leadership to re-write the Constitution. Instead of busying themselves with that task and putting it to the voters, they have simply decided to replace the valid elected body (National Assembly) and give Maduro dictator powers.

Malnutrition rampant in Venezuela. 81% live in poverty. 56% live in extreme poverty

More than 1.2 million Venezuelans suffer chronic malnutrition in the country

More than 1 million 200 thousand Venezuelans at the moment, are living in a situation of chronic malnutrition, in the states of Amazonas, Apure, Delta Amacuro, Monagas and Sucre, said Edison Arciniegas, representative of the Non-Governmental Organization of Citizens in Action.

Within the framework of the day "Trade, Services and Oil", organized by the Foundation of Integral Attention to the People Legislator and the Direction of Citizen Communication of the National Assembly, warns that these people are suffering from the year 2015, a severe protein malnutrition , which means that they are consuming approximately 10% of the proteins and in the case of calories, less than 40%.

In concrete terms there are 50,000 Venezuelans who have their lives committed for the next quarter, as a result of malnutrition, so the adoption of emergency measures is needed, ensuring that these measures are at sea, that is why dialogue is required that is going to continue on December 15 in the Dominican Republic, achieve by way of the flexibilization of the terms, of the political agreement, that come to Venezuela from Colombia, no less than 3,000 trucks loaded with finished food and inputs for the production and no less than 50 ships from Canada, Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay, Mexico and Peru that are major exporters of food, allowing us to attend the emergency and take advantage of the winter that promises to be generous to re-produce food in the country, points out Arciniegas.



Maduro says there is no crisis. Only US propaganda. Plenty of food and medicine. Only propaganda!
Delcy says there is only a "lack of willpower". Venezuelans are strong. They need to quit complaining.
Cabello says the ANC will pass a new law next week that will fix what is not broken. Not like the last law that bankrupted retailers in one day.

Buying prescription drugs on the street is the new normal in Venezuela

Shortage in pharmacies pushes informal sale of medicines in the streets of Venezuela
By Anggy Polanco and Isaac Urrutia

SAN CRISTÓBAL / MARACAIBO, Venezuela (Reuters) - In a bus terminal in the Andean city of San Cristóbal or in an open-air market in the hot Maracaibo, street vendors in Venezuela offer products unrelated to their street stalls: medicines and vitamins.

With a shortage that the pharmaceutical industry places at 85 percent, the clandestine resale of prescription drugs without a prescription is booming. Some of them travel kilometers from hospitals in the country or neighboring Colombia, to informal posts without health permits.

"I buy vitamins here for memory because I suffered a stroke (stroke) and I forget things," said Marisol Salas, 56, in front of a post at the San Cristobal terminal, where she found what was missing in the pharmacies .

One of those who sell medicines there is Antuam López, 30, in his stand of natural products that he installs next to another one of vegetables.

"There are people who work in public entities, hospitals, medicaments and sell us medicines," said Lopez, while answering questions about contraceptives or medicines to control blood pressure. "Lately they are looking for many anticonvulsants," he added.

The few anticonvulsants are used to fight attacks of epilepsy.

The socialist government of Nicolás Maduro blames resellers for the shortage of medicines, although economists and private entrepreneurs say that the lack of raw materials and state controls that force them to sell at subsidized prices impact production and imports.

Medicines for chronic diseases in social networks, or even in newsstands are also offered in different parts of the country.



What is Chavismo good for, if not blaming everyone and everything for its perpetual failures?

Corrupt Venezuelan UN ambassador resigns. UN cannot seat new VZ ambassador

ATTENTION! AN sent notice to the UN in which it does not know designation of Moncada
Dolar Today / Dec 8, 2017 @ 2:00 pm

Luis Florido, president of the Foreign Policy Commission of the National Assembly (AN), sent Friday a communication to the president of the 72nd session of the General Assembly of the United Nations Organization, Miroslav Lajčák, in which they do not recognize Samuel Moncada as Venezuela's ambassador to the UN.

"We sent communication to the president of the UN General Assembly, Miroslav Lajčák: national and international ignorance of Samuel Moncada as ambassador," Florido said.

Through a statement the AN explained that, according to Article 187 of the Constitution of the Republic, the appointment of the heads of diplomatic missions corresponds to the Legislative Branch, so it considered the appointment of Moncada as a violation of the Constitution.

"We do not endorse, and ignore from the National Assembly, elected by 14 million Venezuelans on December 6, 2015, the appointment of Mr. Samuel Moncada Acosta as ambassador, permanent representative of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela to the United Nations Organization", expressed the statement.


The Venezuelan Constitution is binding, since the Chavistas haven't gotten around to poopin out a new one yet. Bad luck for Maduro. He can't get a loan. He can't seat his ministers...

Eco disaster in Venezuela bigger than the country of Panama

Ecocide of the Orinoco Mining Arc is bigger than Panama
By: Víctor Peña

translated from Spanish

In a territorial extension of 111,843 square kilometers are the largest mineral riches of Venezuela. Coltan, gold and diamonds are the most sought after to the south of the Orinoco river in the state of Bolívar. The project advances and advances without the corresponding environmental and socio-cultural impact studies having been prepared. The most affected of this ecocide are the indigenous peoples and the ecosystems of world interest, since the Orinoco Mining Arc is part of the Amazon .

"The form of organization promoted by the government of the small mining sector, which is the socialist mining brigades, continues to use cyanide,
" said Edgar López, journalist and principal author of the investigative work Arco Minero del Orinoco, crime, corruption and cyanide in conversation with Reinaldo Pulido and He also stressed that small-scale mining also uses mercury.

"The cyanide is not a clean alternative ," added the journalist who in turn compared this experience with an Argentine cyanidation company that presented contamination problems with the same material, against briefcase companies created by Gold Reserve, a Canadian firm, which they have not been able to guarantee a friendly mining with the environment.



Cuban sychophant named "honorary" president of PdVSA by Maduro

Translated from Spanish

"The appointment of Ali Rodríguez Araque as "honorary president of PDVSA" is no coincidence. I swear that after the purges in the company it is the request of Raúl Castro to Maduro to keep alive the flow of 100,000 barrels a day to Cuba amid the uncertainty of the oil market, the collapse of PDVSA and the declining Venezuelan production.

Ali, the true man of Fidel since guerrilla, is the architect of that unrestricted support to Havana. He has never been mentioned in any case of corruption despite the fact that during his ministerial exercise there were millionaire purchase contracts from the inefficient barges with electric generators to fuel oil at the Arrecifes plant to dozens of other plants in the repetitive electrical emergency due to the permanent improvisation in that area with Chavez and Maduro. Cuba is first for the redder than red nomenklatura that governs us ...
