Election Day Tactics Used By Hugo Chavez To Win (Beware: Obamanists Could Replicate in USA)
El Universal, Caracas, Venezuela (from original Spanish) ^ | 11 October 2012 | Runrunes (anti-Hugo Chavez Blogger)

Granted it is rough English to understand, as it is machine translation from the mainstream, non-Chavez "El Universal" newspaper in Caracas, Venezuela today, but it gives the street level tactics the Socialist Community Organizers used in Venezuela to eek out a victory for Communist Hugo Chavez earlier this week. It is provided below in its entirety, with the link to the original Spanish.

Of specific interest will be the tactical description of the "double wave" Chavez PSUV strategy on Election Day in polling zones they identified as somewhat sympathetic to the anti-Chavez democratic forces. Pay close attention because these tactics could well be used in the US in marginal districts on Election Day by SEIU, ACORN, other labor, civic groups etc. on behalf of Obama/Biden....since Chavez and Obama are essentially both part of the same "Socialist International", this will be instructive.

(Machine Translation-Awkward at times):

" POST ELECTION REPORT is clear (as to how Chavez pulled it off). It was explained to me from a friend who was a "rojito" (Red Shirt), the voting strategy of Chavez: The Chavista's organized two groups of voters committed to Chavez. One that would go to the polls in the morning and a second group that would come in the afternoon-after a specific time, and in the middle of those two teams would have red voters in small waves, to maintain a flow. This coordinated through local community organizing groups organized and financed by Chavez and (government-controlled oil company PDVSA) have here in two recent columns. It reissued the strategy used in the recall: knots and obstacles for voters especially in areas of heavy opposition. This point of identity verification and voting was not compulsory stop voters, but had not been informed, rather CNE (Electoral Commission) wedges was part of the procedure.

Remember, to kill two birds with one stone, to appear superimposed on the ballots for voters and make them believe that they knew for whom they voted, as the delay in replacing defective equipment strategy helped the red. That was part of the plan. Produce a strategy of attrition, fatigue opponents complemented by sun, fatigue, motor and other delays.

At a certain time, began the disinformation bombardment of "Text Messages, by SMS" with information that the election was WON by anti-Chavez candidate Henrique Capriles, making people who supported him then believe that their votes were not needed anymore for that day to depress their turnout. They ginned up and sent very specific figures. Create an mis-information bubble of rumor. The above steps reached the opponents.

Vote Chavez and gives the impression of timidity, of ambivalence, to comply with an apparent electoral setback. Rate Capriles and there is a total triumphalism feeling to rest on laurels.

Democratic voters accuse triumphalism, "and we win, if I do not vote, you do not notice it's just my vote." Once mounted and operating strategy and Jorge Rodriguez instructs his agent and Sandra Oblitas: She summoned a press conference and reported (2-3 pm) "no" necessary to go through the ID card and at the polling location. At 4 pm the instruction is given to Chavez voters "Group 2" to out to vote and begin waves of this group to the polls.

There, he tells me, that the opposition starts victorious singing, because if he was winning strategy. The opposition takes the strike thinking by 6 pm when they believe that they will close the polls as per Venezuela Election Law, here comes another surprise: the neighborhoods are filled with voters "last minute" and middle-class areas located close to the areas of anti-Chavez opposition, celebrating.

Speaking of fraud does not make sense, because while we do not believe in the objectivity of CNE (Electoral Commission) -and certainly is essential to review and audit the RE-there is no doubt that the high redshirt turnout is what "induced" the advantage to Chavez to eventually pull off the win. What you need to evaluate is how the opposition grew in places where the majority was before Chavez. A recommended exercise is to compare the results table to table the 2006 presidential and 2012. If they do, they will see how much progress has the opposition and realize that the path indicated by Capriles was and is correct. No wonder the opposition vote increased by 2,175,984, while Chavez managed only 752,796. If we remain united and work hard from now until December, retain and win some governors such as states of Merida and Bolivar. I repeat, there was no fraud but government, with total mobilization ticket and abuse of power ... ?

FAILED? The only two states in which Chavez lost, Merida and Tachira, were in charge of Interior Minister Tarek el-Aissami. In Merida sabotage and held a showdown with Marcos Díaz Orellana as he was about to go to that office or ride there one of his cronies. In Tachira was absent, was careless and did not cooperate with the PSUV. He commissioned the "Monument of the Battle Cry for Christ", let it fall behind and could not be delivered by 7-Oct. How I offered reelected. Chavez held a detailed report of their performance in the states that the PSUV-Chavistas lost. The name of one of his relatives, Samar Lopez, in charge of several skirmishes Andean ...

Middle point. It is no news to us on the issue of corruption scheme since the presidency of Lula da Silva to buy votes of parliamentarians and politicians in his government called the mensalão. The main suspect-and-Jose Dirceu accused and was the first trader with President Hugo Chavez to do business with Brazilian companies, mainly in the food. Millions in imports accelerated between Lula and Chávez and was negotiator Dirceu occupied the Brazilian presidential secretariat and was the most trusted man of Lula (and Fidel Castro) since both rode the Workers Party. Another intermediary with Venezuela was and still is the "radical comrade" Marco Aurelio García charge of external relations area in a parallel scheme to the Brazilian Foreign Ministry. Our columns of June 1 and June 17, 2004 and as of March 16, 2005 reported their corrupt deals. Bajo green solution at hand. The elections of October 7 also provide opportunities and solutions, to others beyond Chavez and Capriles. There is the case of the results of Tachira in which the opposition wins most of its advantages over the government. The tiny quarrels peer that has characterized the slow agony of COPEI, the take off you to put myself between leaders or officials without any notice to the electorate-electoral political real reason a game-depleting them internally, would be resolved with the appointment of Cesar Perez Vivas as commander in chief of the green awning. Just do not be made ​​to do seminars, workshop and American encounters to make that decision. Given the even more difficult times that come, is whether or not what matters Venezuela, green friends?

Certainly the appointed by Chavez to compete in Tachira is captain Jose Vielma Mora, former executive government the best current front Maiquetia Airport and Seniat. Aristobulus for Anzoategui and Monagas Yelitza Santaella for ... A CONFESSION. Chavez said he will create a super ministry secretariat to track their orders. They failed? Vice President and six Vice Jaua sector? With the Vice President Maduro in his ministerial team? Restructure? I say back to MRE Chaderton ... Observations located at:" (END TRANSLATION)

Ping! Might be of interest. Anybody seeking to topple Obama from power should read this as well, the more senior, the better, IMHO. Not telling them how to do their professional jobs, but they should see the parallels and see to it the same is not replicated by the “red shirts” in November in our own country. If they have the will to defraud, cheat, or just be plain clever, by golly, they will do it.

Are regular citizens allowed to own firearms there? Because we have hundreds of millions of weapons and at minimum tens of billions of rounds of ammunition.

voter fraud is a two-way street. I’m still on the books in 4 towns. I could essentially vote 4 times. In my state I would have to vote 30,000 times to make any significant difference.

They are being asked, and now increasingly ordered, to turn them in. He will accelerate those demands now that he has been reelected and has six years to turn it into a true Cuba, one party system. This may well have been their last presidential election in my opinion, the opposition had better not give up their arms. He will go for more opposition radio stations and newspapers next. Sound familiar?????

Chavez gave Obama a copy of
'The Open Veins of Latin America: Five Centuries of the Pillage of a Continent'...

Judging by the photo; Barry was grateful.

Between absentee voting, and early voting, and being America, I don’t anticipate much problem with thuggery, especially since the possibility of thuggery is limited to Obama voting areas.

What will undermine Team Obama is low turnout for the takers...
