Skip to comments.Wikileaks: Obama Regime Knew Ousted Honduran Leader was Socialist Pig-Backed Him to Please Chavez

Unbelievable. The Obama Administration knew that Manuel Zelaya was an anti-democratic anti-Semitic pig whose goal was to become ruler for life like his buddy Hugo Chavez. But, Team Obama decided to support him for the greater good of Latin American relations. Barack Obama even cut off aid to Honduras in order to appease tyrant Hugo Chavez.

Obama AND Hillary totally ignored constitutional government in Honduras.
According to Article 239 of the Honduran constitutional, it is unconstitutional for any sitting Honduran president to do anything to encourage changing the constitution to allow for a second Presidential term, under penalty of immediate removal from office.. Zelaya ignored this and pushed for a referendum (he already had the ballots printed upby Chavez, no less).
The Supreme Court of Honduras voted unanimously that he had to step down, as did the unicameral Honduran National Assembly by an overwhelming margin, even his own party voted that he had violated the Constitution and had to step down.
It was AFTER he refused to step down, that the military was asked by the Judicial and Legislative branches to remove Zelaya. This was NOT a military coup by any serious definition.
Neither Obama nor Clinton appear to possess the slightest understanding of the concept of Constitutional Government. Maybe they are just racists and think they know better than the brown people of Honduras what Honduras needs.
So, help me out here. Does Chavez give our fearless leader, Obammy, the same leg tingle that Chris Matthews gets? Because it seems as though whatever Hugo wants, Hugo gets.
Of COURSE it was known by the White House! Was there ever ANY doubt about this??????????
Obama did the same thing in Iran! This isn’t ‘realpolitik’...it’s creeping marxism and Obama is in on the plan.
Obama will always support the leftist dictator, the Marxist,
as he will be so like Obama himself ...
Read what he told Dr John C Drew at Occidental
19 yrs old and already a fully developed Marxist revolutionary.
And bragging about it.
Can you remember the names of other others on the list?
This was already well known, at least here on FR.
When are they going to say that Barack Obama was born in Kenya?
I just have not been able to get over this, and when I saw the Wikileaks confirmation of the administrations frankly EVIL role in this, I just wanted to barf.
Unfortunately, it is extremely difficult to find an American reporter who ACTUALLY cares about the importance of constitutional government.
Not sure I get your question.
Impeachment is too good
Here’s the link to the Wall Street Journal story:
Yes, but nowhere else. The MSM were afraid to touch it for fear of disturbing their Royal Godling in the White House.
(---They might be banned from ever getting an interview with His Highness!)
Oh, I was a bit vague. We had a Honduras Ping List during the crisis. I could only remember two other members on the list ... was hoping I’d remember the others so that they could be pinged to this thread. :)
Obama is a Socialist Pig - so why wouldn’t he back someone like him?
It was the common belief here at FR.
def., Reporter, n. 1. A stenographer for Barack Obama. 2. a stenographer for Hillary Clinton. 3. a lazy sycophant.
The only things that's unbelievable is that the press is acting suprised.....well...okay, it's not unbelievable. I guess it would be more unbelievable if they didn't. God help us all.
Sorry, I should have given a hat tip to weasel zippers:
Now why would Obama want to win the support of Chavez? He knows he could never win Chavez’ support for America. No, he wanted Chavez’ support for Obama. Just as he wants from all the other socialist and Islamist countries in the world. No doubt Obama has larger, globalist, aspirations after his term as president. And a weakened (or destroyed) America would play into that quite nicely.
They're acting surprised? Is this anywhere other than WSJ and blogs????? I think they are all ignoring it, -----because they are ashamed of their malpractice.
FR has wikileaks beaten and way ahead of schedule. I haven’t seen one leak yet that didn’t have multiple threads on it years before the ‘leaks’.
Yup, exactly right.
It was unbelievable.
Thanks Jet Jaguar
The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
OBAMA = NORTH HOLLYWOOD BANK SHOOTERS
HILLARY CLINTON = SAME SAME
Hear is one of the threads back a ways. Not the earliest but it has been a while.
Like Kilroy we were there:
I first posted here about this subject on Oct. 27, 2009.
This is the reward by one of Obamas recent appointees for Brazils Lula. What is it for? It is for helping to re-impose Zelaya in Honduras. (fellow commie dictator)
Sarah Palin was persecuted by the press for even mentioning it, but this is what was happening.
It would have continued but the negative coverage got so bad that the Obamanistas had to back away.

0baMao and Hitlery were perfectly fine with throwing the people of Honduras into communist dictatorship for the sake of kissing Chavez’ arse. How is that in any way different than the mindset of a serial killer?
Thank you. I could not find an old one. I could see the ping list however. Oh well.
Based on this article, it looks like Obama and Hillary knew exactly what they were doing.
Buddying up to Hugo.
If we can't impeach him, maybe Honduras can...
Only a Democrat would cooperate with a foreign dictator to consign a people to totalitarianism. Clinton did it. Carter did it.
And Nixon catches hell for purportedly supporting Pinochet and freeing the Chilean people from a Communist yoke.
Haha, yeah, I loved that pic!
HA! Ain't that the truth!
Texas Fossil: “Sarah Palin was persecuted by the press for even mentioning it, but this is what was happening.”
didn’t Greta do an interview with the “fill-in” pres during all this mess? he was PO’d at Obummer and Kankles over their stance if i remember..
stephenjohnbanker was one. I’ll try to think of others.
The Wall Street Journal article was the first place I saw this. I thought it was stunning, particularly when you see how the outgoing State Dept person warned the new Bambi regime about Zelaya, not only as being bad news from a political point of view, but as being a common criminal and having high-level criminal associates.
The outgoing State Dept person would not even share information on US drug interdiction and anti-money laundering activities with Zelaya because he was afraid that US and Honduran agents would be offed by Zelaya’s criminal associates.
Just the type of guy Obama loves, of course.
The Obama Administration knew that Manuel Zelaya was an anti-democratic anti-Semitic pig whose goal was to become ruler for life like his buddy Hugo Chavez.Thanks cookcounty.
"I know he was, but what am I?
I know he was, but what am I?
I know he was, but what am I?"
IMO, the real damage of the Wikileaks dump will be trust. It really confirmed for the world that we are a banana republic.
We knew Obama was aware of this guy’s value.
I did not see the interview with Greta.
Seldom watch TV. When I do it is Fox or C-Span. Guess I missed it.
here it is, i found it:
HonCitizen; maquiladora; Girlene; livius; stephenjohnbanker; Son House; ABQHispConservative
Had not seen it. But I know a lot about Mr. Micheletti(”the one with the balls” as he was called in spanish), who was the president of their Congress before assuming the Presidency replacing “Mel” Zelaya.
Hondurans = Good Brave Freedom Loving People
They have to understand it, and I'll assert they do understand it, the better to cicumvent and destroy it. They knew the facts, the 'press' knew them too. Any third-grader could easily get the straight dope on the Honduran scene as well. Our government is a leftist, collectivist, mob-supported cabal. They alone get to define 'good relations' in Latin America. And like in the Carter days, their definition of 'good relations' includes 'support communists', by whatever means they can get away with.
