Wikileaks: Obama Regime Knew Ousted Honduran Leader was Socialist Pig-Backed Him to Please Chavez
Gateway Pundit summary of Wall Street Journal ^ | December 21, 2010 | Jim Hoft

Posted on 12/21/2010 4:54:34 PM PST by cookcounty

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.

It is utterly shameful that our brainless American Press Corps simply acted as Obama's dictation-takers in this disgusting affair. Sick, sick SICK.

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 up—by 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.

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.

Obviously, so.

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.

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.

This is the reward by one of Obama’s recent appointee’s for Brazil’s 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 Obamanista’s 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?

Why don't Obama and his adoring press all move to Venezuela with Hugo? Why doesn't Michael Moore move to Cuba? If they don't love the US, why do they stay? If they hate capitalism why don't they give all of their money to the poor and move to some socialist ‘paradise’? Why?

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.

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.

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.
