Tanks in the streets as Venezuelan electoral council declares Hugo Chavez victory
the daily caller ^ | 10/7/12 | Matthew Boyle

Posted on 10/07/2012 8:29:17 PM PDT by barmag25

Update 10:50 p.m.: According to the Associated Press, Venezuela’s electoral council has declared that Hugo Chavez beat Henriques Capriles in Sunday’s presidential election with about 54 percent of the vote, despite exit polls showing otherwise.

Venezuela Twitter users have claimed Chavez’s victory was wrought with election fraud, and that the socialist incumbent president sent tanks into the streets of his country as those exit poll reports showed him losing. A picture of the tanks surfaced on Twitter Sunday evening.

The British Guardian newspaper reported that Chavez also sent troops armed with AK-47s into Venezuela’s streets to fight against any protests in case unrest came as a result of the news.

He’s going to cheat like Chavez did.

And the media will insist that it was the fairest election ever - just like in Venezuela.

The crowds for Capriles on Friday were HUGE. I have a hard time believing that Chavez won honestly.

This outcome is predictable.

"Win the election, and it still may happen there."

I regard Mitt Romney in the same light as General Patton saw General Marshall Zhukov.

I also have no doubt that if (when) Romney wins, there will be rioting in the streets.

Of course they'll riot either way. It seems that for some people the expression of joy and despair are both occasions for stealing and burning stuff.

And this is another argument to vote for Romney, just to see whether the emperor cedes his power.

Look what happened in 2006 when Hussein’s Cousin Raila Odinga lost an election in kenya (despite our deer leeder’s contribution of some $950,000 towards his campaign).

They finally ceded Odinga Prime Ministership in order to stop the barbaric, ruthless carnage, slaughter and genocide by his Muslim allies who were burning Churches with the congregations locked inside, hacking villagers to bits and such in retaliation for their not having “voted right”.

It worked for Odinga; He got most of what he wanted - the election was essentially overturned by wholesale murder and extortion.

So...; The bloody precedent has been set.

I will be very pleasantly surprised if Obongo does not follow his Cousin Raila’s tactical example should he fail to steal this election (assuming that we even get to have one).

His private foreign Jihad and domestic Gang banger “army” is already here in place, just waiting for their orders.

If us “bitter clinger” folks get rowdy after a big steal (as we suspect the Chavez thing probably is) then good luck even with our Second amendment (such as we have left of it) against armor, artillery and air superiority.

We might have guns, but the regime has nukes - and won’t hesitate to use them or other WMD to eradicate a third of our population if that’s what it takes to retain power.

Don’t count on our military to do the right thing; remember how Obongo promised that his “Domestic Security force” would be bigger and more powerful than the US Miliary? There was a reason for that.

After the purge (see Stalin c.1933) the military will be even less able, even if some surviving elements might be willing, to save our Nation for us. I’m amazed it hasn’t happened already - although it has been going on administratively by the expulsion of most of the constitutionally loyal top Officer Corps, from what we understand, for years now.

Over in the “Stan, our troops are being ordered to march aimlessly, without a clear goal or mission, up and down mine fields day after day until they blow up, while providing easy targets for the Taliban who according to the PC REMF’s ROEs must not be shot back at, as it might disturb the neighbors or harm the environment.
Are they even allowed to carry real bullets any more?

Can you say “Cannon fodder”? In this case it’s “IED Fodder” - same principal, different war.

About a third of our military will have to be “liquidated” one way or another or locked up in concentration / Quarantine / re education camps before it’s over, and if Obama follows his Uncle Joe’s example I would expect the former.
Don’t pretend that they don’t have plans for it already in place.

Note how our military by and large is not being allowed to vote. There is a reason for that, too.

This is probably not a good time to be in the US Military unless perhaps you are a Muslim or on the “Blue list”.

Check out what “Science Czar” John Holdren once taught about how the human population ought to be reduced by about 95% for the sake of the environment. I’m sure that he and his family / lovers/ choomin’ pals were among the select 5% to be spared, don’t ya s’pose?

Look up What the Weather Underground and SDS were planning to do with defeated dissident hold outs in the re-education camps after the communist revolution and take over of Amerika.
You mean they were going to KILL and estimated 25 million Americans?
Apparently.

A lot of those 1960s seditious communist radicals have been Obama mentors and supporters all along, haven’t they?

Do you imagine that this gang has any moral reservation against killing people - LOTS of people - in order to get what they want?

What do you expect then?

Go figure. ... and get ready.

I guess most honest folks are not aware that the primary
reason for exit polls is to tip the dems if the vote is
going to be close. If so, and only one or two, are close,
e.g., Ohio&Virginia, with two or three heavy dem counties,
Cleveland, Alexandria, the dems can do their thing.
Remember, 2000 and Florida. They added votes to Dade,
Broward, and Palm Beach. Unfortunately, the Supremes
said, you have to count ALL the counties not just those
three. The dems are counting on Ohio & Virginia to be
close.

Why do you think the IOWA pari-mutual odds are 70/30?
They are betting on a close election in states which the dems can do their thing.

Chavez learned that scheme. The early vote showed Chavez
losing by 4%. But when the polls closed he won by >4%.

They won't mess with FL again.

I just remember Budapest but clearly remember Prague. Last night Venezuela lost because the fat, cancerous tumor, the DICTATOR Chavez “won”. Can the opposition prove the vote was “cooked”? It won’t do them any good even if hey can. The fat pig is there until he rots from the inside and is carried out in a box.

This should be a warning shot to all of US! If Obama, Jarrett, Axelrod, Holder and the rest of their thugs can STEAL our Presidential Election THEY WILL! It is up to all of us to see that that does not happen!

Chavez’ election is modelled after Putin’s in Russia. First intimidate the opposition and potential candidates. Second, use government resources to massively outspend your opponents. Third, use the state controlled media to give non-stop positive coverage to the incumbent while carpet bombing the challenger with viciously negative attacks. Four, intimidate opposition supporters on Election Day while simultaneously bribing undecideds. And if all of that doesn’t work, have the government controlled election commission just make up a number.

I don’t know if Chavez had to resort to the final step but the election was stolen before the first vote was even cast. And the response of the word media - INCLUDING FOXNEWS - silence. They all report the result as a valiant effort by the opposition but that the Venezuelan people really do love the fat Marxist. And yet the western powers claim to support democracy in other lands.
