Today is Leopoldo Lopez second birthday in jail

And I have nothing best to offer but a repost of what I wrote a year ago.

Unbearably actual.

----------------------------------------------

Today, after soon three month in jail and no trial in sight, Leopoldo Lopez, political prisoner of the regime has his birthday. With the added bonus that his wife has been banned for visit for a while because the regime did not like an interview she gave to ABC in Spain.

So, has Leopoldo Lopez self sacrifice been worth something?


The point here is that when you are dealing with a dictatorship there is no measure of success. That is, the regime remains or the regime folds, but the timing may be unaccountable to current events and apparent "plus scores". What you must do as an individual, is to do what you think needs to be done and hope for the best, keeping in mind that the grandest gesture has equal chances to topple the regime as the humblest of coincidences.

What Leopoldo unleashed February 12 and etched a few days later when he surrendered to the regime was a double whammy: an international acknowledgment that the Maduro regime is a crass dictatorship and that the Venezuelan opposition was duplicitous. That is why, that is the real reason why Leopoldo Lopez is in jail awaiting a trial that is not coming: too many people from both sides want him in. I do not mean to make some in the opposition sound that cynical, none really want Lopez to rot in jail there forever, but some are not adverse at him remaining in jail for a few months while they secure some form of deal with the regime, a deal where if possible they would figure as the benefactors that managed the release of Lopez.

Of course the regime wants Lopez, and many other, to rot forever in jail, or dead if they could get away with it. The main reason for that hatred with Lopez is that he represents all that they are not, educated individuals, rational, sensible, not seeking revenge for real or imaginary hurts, even good looking. That in addition he made it clear to the world that the regime is a dictatorship managed by thugs is, of course, unforgivable.

What is more troubling is that some in the opposition are not running over each other to make a grand stand and demand Lopez freedom or else. This, in a way, is harder to forgive. But the reason is also simple to understand: the revolt that Lopez represents is the one from a group of Venezuelans who think that they have no future, nothing to lose anymore. But inside the MUD there are people that have something to lose, little perhaps, but something nevertheless. As such, people like Ramos Allup, leader of the fading AD old party, are ready to do anything to lower social tensions. Not because it is good to lower social tensions, something we can almost all of of us agree on, but because social tensions are bad for him since he will never lead the outcome.

Thus for example these people claim that they need to lead a "dialogue", unfortunately for them, one that is missing key elements such as the people that actually expose their lives in protests, a dialogue that is going nowhere fast, where the only valid strategy, at least acknowledged by Aveledo this weekend, is to make the government stand up and leave once and for all. Thus we have irenic speeches where we are told, for example, that establishing a new truth commission brings us close to peace. That the regime bombs on day one such a commission by naming creeps like Amoroso or crazies like Serra should bring some sense to these heads but does not. Ramos Allup goes on saying that street protests brought nothing and thus we are forced into dialogue, when dialogue, for whatever it is worth, was only made possible by forcing the regime into it, albeit as the fake they are.

I have no present to give Leopoldo Lopez in jail except a few verses in French from Paul Éluard if you forgive me the metaphor associating living in jail with death, a few verses for those who refuse their preordained fate and embrace the consequences.

Un homme est mort qui n’avait pour défense
Que ses bras ouverts à la vie
Un homme est mort qui n’avait d’autre route
Que celle où l’on hait les fusils
Un homme est mort qui continue la lutte
Contre la mort contre l’oubli.

Paul Éluard: au rendez vous allemand

No more dollars for FEDECAMARAS? They never asked for any!

We do not know who writes Maduros's scripts but the last one was a dozy. In his constant search for a scapegoat for his constant piling up of mistakes Nicolas Maduro has decided last week that FEDECAMARAS was guilty of the "economic war" and his retaliation was to cut out their supply of dollars. There are two concurrent ways to look at this.

First, Maduro is an idiot.

Fedecamaras is a grouping of associations of production and commerce whose sole function is to provide a voice for the private sector in discussions with the government when economic and social policies are drawn, in conjunction with other sectors of society, in particular trade unions. This happens in every civilized and democratic country, except in Venezuela. Here, any, ANY organization that shows signs of not toying the line set by the regime is considered an enemy and treated as such.

Certainly in the past Fedecamaras has done its share of political mistakes but the people in charge now have nothing to do with those in charge ten years ago because, you see, in the private sector it is normal to renew people whereas in the regime renewal comes strictly from attrition through death or purge. Nevertheless the regime's mental clocks have stopped in 2002, because it is the only thing that looks remotely like a revolutionary epic. No Bay of Pigs here, no blockade, no missiles.

Fedecamaras does not produce anything but ideas, advice, consulting and has absolutely no reason to ever ask for controlled dollars to the regime. Thus it president, Jorge Roig, promptly underlined: Fedecamaras never asked for dollars.  Hence, Maduro is a dumbass (1)

Unless you go to second, the secret agenda conspiracy.

If we assume Maduro is not a total dumbass, a belief every day harder to hold, that Maduro is actually the mere mouth piece of the more radical wing of chavismo then his announcement of depriving Fedecamaras of dollars must contain a message.

The real target in Maduro's message is the private sector that is in dire need of dollars to keep importing raw material and producing. Regular readers of this blog know all about it. I have written on an on about the useless meeting with the regime, how this one refuses to release the necessary dollars required to import raw materials that are needed by producing actors, etc, etc.  The problem of Venezuela is that the private sector is all tied up and CANNOT produce and the public sector has reached levels of ineptness and corruption that even if dollars were channeled there it cannot produce either.

I am not writing this because I read papers. I am writing this because it is MY everyday experience, at my workplace, with my customers and my providers. If anything I water down a lot what I write about because if I were to write everything down readers would think I am a fool, I am crazy or I would endanger myself.

What Maduro has probably announced is that since dollars are scarce, since those cashing on corruption are not going to reduce their intake, the only business that are going to receive dollars are those that publicly will denounce Fedecamaras, the US, etc, and discretely deal with the regime to share the profits with the corrupt officials/military that expect to keep cashing in as much as before the oil prices fell, without working for it.  There are already schemes set up where the government will import directly certain items, become the sole legal importer and the private sector will have to buy from them.  Channeling corruption into a few hands we can call that. And I can assure you that it will only make inflation worse through yet more regime ineptness.

That is probably all.

Nothing else will change.


---------------------------------
1) for those who can read Spanish I ma posting here the Roig official reply.

Sector Empresarial se pronuncia:

• No es amenazando a empresarios como se construye un país.

• No hay un kilo de alimentos que se movilice en el país sin autorización del Gobierno a través de SADA. Es el Estado el responsable de lo que sucede.

• La única guerra económica que existe en el país la lleva adelante quien maneja el monopolio de los dólares.

• El 50% de las actividades de las industrias están paralizadas.

• Es el modelo económico al cual se aferra obstinadamente el Gobierno quien destruye el aparato productivo.

• A pesar de los obstáculos, a pesar de las amenazas, de la persecución, el empresariado sigue apostando por Venezuela.

• Denunciamos: Empresarios del sector agroalimentario son amenazados con cárcel por parte del Gobierno nacional por alertar sobre la realidad del campo.

• Al menos 57 empresarios han sido detenidos en todo el territorio nacional.

• La OIT urge al Gobierno para que adopte medidas tangibles en materia de diálogo social y consultas tripartitas.

• Dictamen de la OIT declara de "suma gravedad" caso de Venezuela, el cual será nuevamente discutido en la OIT en junio de este año.

• Nos sentimos amenazados y perseguidos. Declaraciones del Presidente nos aleja más del diálogo.

• Pedimos respeto a nuestros Derechos constitucionales y sindicales.

• Venezuela está sometida a sanciones de ley en caso de incumplir peticiones de la OIT.

No es atacando a la empresa privada, no es encarcelando a empresarios o líderes gremiales que lograrán enrumbarnos por la senda del progreso!

Jorge Roig, Presidente de Fedecámaras


What if you inaugurated a new bus line and nobody came?

In a success starved regime anything becomes a great triumph. Thus inaugurating 6 miles of a simple blocked lane for accordion buses is shamelessly termed the most modern transportation system in Latin America. Just as all is crumbling but who's gonna check?

But today you can get killed in Facebook



Hoy pude grabar este video en la inauguración del transmaracay , después de esperar mas de 6 horas esto fue lo q paso cuando llego Maduro
Posted by Julio J. Tovar Ponte on samedi 18 avril 2015

That is right. The presidential bus was only three, passed by in a couple of minutes, and that was that. Chavez years of throngs glory are far, far away. (note: this was passed to me by soemone who actually knows the guy who filmed. Just in case).

Panama OAS summit for dummies

OK, real quick.

The OAS summit, for Venezuela's Maduro regime it was supposed to be the trashing of Obama and the US.

For the US and Cuba it was going to be the start of something and a positive PR for both battered leaders.

The results?

Winners?

No winners. There are never clear winners in an OAS summit because of the nature of the participants there, all prima donne that will always find a way to say that "yes, they did this and that but I told them so" and make this pass as a dramatic victory for home consumption. The saddest part here is that it tends to work....

However there are two winning moments: 1) when Raul Castro says that the US is horrible but whatever happened was not Obama's fault and 2) when they both sat together in front of cameras to chat a little bit. From here to eternity there is a long way, and even from here to get some sort of real agreement there is quite a way as the US Congress will never vote any treaty that does not include a clear improvement of human rights in Cuba. So we cannot call Casto and Obama winners but their moments under the flashes have erased any other "winning" moment at the summit, Better, it made worse the loser moments...

Losers!

Let's start with the minor losers. The tirades of Cristina Kirchener was not even attended by Obama I understand. The ones of Correa and Evo were, well, tired and out of the point considering the momentous tectonic shift further north.  In short the axis of evil-ALBA looked passé and lonely.  Obama had made sure the day before that CARICOM and Central America would remain at the very least neutral. Even Dilma for the first time in a pre summit interview started putting a tiny bit of distance with Maduro.

The loser was, of course, and by far, Maduro and Venezuela. Clearly the least influential country of our hemisphere (even Canada weighs much more by blocking by itself a final declaration without remorse, I understand).

Maduro did not even get to have Obama sit down to listen while he ranted about Miami plots.

Maduro did not get to deliver his 10 million petitions.

Maduro did not get to have the OAS rage at Obama and the US.

Maduro was caught bringing a double for him and his wife. Nobody knows why. Some suggest it was to fake an assassination attempt.

In fact Maduro did not get anything.  Worse, at the very end, it seems that it was Obama, like an afterthought, who in fact sort of cornered Maduro to let him have it. No photo we know of at this point. Of course chavismo is pretending that this is a great victory.  Never mind the ridicule from months of insults to rejoice about 5 minutes in between doors, But even if it were true that Maduro had cornered Obama it would look more like the stalker that finally got after the star victim he had been tracking all day long...

There, I think I got it all.

The money is mine and I'll do what I want to do with it (and, by the way, there is none left)

When I wrote this morning post I did not realize that tonight I would be writing the same one but from a different angle. That is, materially not the same at all, but philosophically, so to speak, they are like two drops.
He is taking away your credit card

My point this morning was that the presence of CNE's head Tibisay at a political event Wednesday to "validate" 10 million signatures obtained though coercion meant that the opposition could dream on winning future legislative elections, the regime could not care less. There are alternative ways to legislate or annul newly elected representatives through, say, popular will expression through "certified" signatures of the "El Pueblo". After all, if Obama and the OAS have nothing to object of the signatures this week end, why should they object to future signatures?

Strong with that success, the regime forged ahead and announced today that travel money would be reduced to almost nothing, and that in addition it would be reserved only to those that are already in agreement with the regime.  It may not look quite like it on the surface but that is the way it is heading. Again, as is the case this morning, the point is not whether there are elections. Today is not whether there is money in the coffers: whatever is there is for the regime. Period.


Let's rewind a little. In what is perhaps the second worst aspect of Chavez populism (the top being, of course, gas subsidies) travel has been heavily subsidized by the regime since currency control was established in 2003. I suppose that it was not the intention at first. I suppose that for a while the regime thought it was a way it could win the good graces of enough middle class voters to make a difference, It probably became a way to quiet down the middle class, away from street protest. Eventually the regime became hostage of its own system when its own bureaucratically created middle class got used to travel and trade currency for profit, the infamous "raspa cupos". What was the amount of the subsidy? No way to tell for sure, but it started to go down three years ago. Subsidized airline tickets were the first to go. The regime defaulted on the money owed the airlines and now we have less than half of the offering of two years ago, and tickets have to be bought in foreign currency, your Venezuelan Bs. are not good, even for Venezuelan airlines.

The current subsidy? A tweet exchange I had with my colleague Miguel is as good as anything you can find: 20 billion for gas, 4 billion for travel expense.



Today by reducing the allocated travel expenses (3000 USD a year to travel to Europe to 2000, much less to the Americas) and making it more difficult to get the regime may save an extra 2-3 billion dollars. At what cost?

With that amount the regime does not solve anything, it gains maybe a month or two before default. The regime would solve more problems by increasing gas price just enough so that demands decreases enough to stop expensive imports (note: just forcing people to tune up their engines and drive in more useful ways could lower import gas bills by 10% just like that).

People that need to travel more than once a year have long ago organized themselves to travel in foreign currency. The middle class that cannot travel anymore had long ago stopped voting for chavismo if they ever did. The political cost here comes from the chavista bureaucratic middle class that was led to believe that foreign travel had become a right. Note: this particular aspect had always irked me a lot and got me very nasty looks when I reminded folks that before Chavez, as it is still the case in other countries around the world, if you wanted to travel you needed to save for a few years, that few were those that could afford yearly travels and fewer were those who could afford yearly shopping sprees in a foreign country. But I suppose that the Venezuelan middle class got the government it deserved...

But all of these in the ends are mere details. What really matters today is not whether you get 300 or 700 bahts to travel to Podunk.

What matters here is the brashness of the whole thing.

First, the announcement was rather unexpected. No rumors, for once, occurred. Which proves you that most rumors are deliberately seeded by the regime....

Second, the brutality of the measure, even for someone like me who had advocated for years that if travel control expenses should exist it should not be on the quantity but on the exchange rate. That is, it makes more sense for business people to have 20,000 travel money at 190 than 2,000 at 15. From my last business trip in Europe last fall, I know that you cannot travel for business in Germany for less than 200 USD a day. You just cannot. Unless you do not even treat your customer to a cup of coffee, you stay in flea bag hotels, eat german sausages from seedy street carts, hitch hike to the banhoff stations, and the like. In other words, unless you look like a pauper and then no one will want to do business with you. In short, the extremity of the measure is so ridiculous that we would actually be better off by eliminating it and legalizing black market. Because that is what is going to happen, we are all going to have to go to the black market for all our serious travel needs. By the way, this one has already digested it all, SIMADI and whatever, thus basically unmoved today.

Third the cynicism of the agent. The minister,  Marco Torres, that announces that 30% of our meager travel allotment is taken away is none other than the one that presided the bank that deposited 12 billion dollars in a Switzerland account of the HSBC in 2007. Maybe there was no wrongdoing but to date I am not aware of the publication of any statement account justifying when were these funds deposited and where did they go before these accounts were closed a year later. The guy goes as far as saying that these new measures ensure "the correct use" of currency. So, the regime was not able to ensure correct use before? Orwell...

And fourth, and the worst, is the added brutality that if you want to have access to the remaining 2000 dollars you have left to go to Europe you will need to open an account in a state bank and ask for the state to grant you a credit card. That is, the credit card that you earned with your good name, your good credit habits, your prompt payments, in real bank of the private sector, is worthless outside of Venezuela. Now your credit is worthy only of a state bank, a bank owned and directed by the regime, decides that you are worthy of it. And what about if the Tascon list is used? What about if the sales representative decides to ask you whether you signed against Obama?

This is what today's announcement really means. Now, you only get to travel if you play nice, if you cozy tot he regime. That is that. Forget about elections, Forget about Human Rights, If you want anything you better join fast the ranks of Maduro,

Oh, and by the way, we are broke, we had to do that. So from now on whatever little bit of money becomes available here and there is only for corrupt military who are going to take turns in front of Marco Torres office. You know, fascism style, the state money is my money.

Fake signatures in lieu of votes, popular clamor in lieu of democracy

So Maduro will present 10 or 13 or 3 million signatures in Panama today. To Obama, to the public or to the dumpster. Does it matter?
Sending the message that votes are unnecessary 

The shame has continued unabated. Even my personal one. I have almost forced my S.O., a sickly public worker, to go an sign the Maduro farce in a way to be seen by his co-workers, to make sure he does not raise any suspicion at work, to make sure he does not compromise his job, to make sure he does not risk his health insurance. We are not proud but we live in a dictatorship. I can afford not to sign, he cannot because my means do not allow me to support him financially 100%, the more so that the bolivarian revolution is homophobic and contrary to many other LatAm countries has no provision for same sex couples so I cannot put him on my insurance, my retirement, my inheritance, etc. In many other countries there are such possibilities now, but bolivarian Venezuela is probably the most backward country now in South America. Then again homophobia is but one of the many tools of subjection available to fascism.

But my personal shame made me digress.


The fact of the matter is that the 10 million + signatures the regime plans to present today in Panama are a sham at many levels. Outside of Venezuela it is quite something to see that so many people do not realize it. I was watching this morning CNN, the Hong Kong edition. They were surprised that Maduro's regime had taken the pain to raise so many signatures for 7 human rights violators (that much wisdom from the US they did not question) but apparently nobody seems to have inquired much about how those signatures were raised.

Inside Venezuela we know better. We do not need to be private eyes to know that. The regime itself has published images of school children signing... That is enough to invalidate the process, amen of all of us knowing someone who had been forced to sign, starting with yours truly confession above, wrenching by this historical blog standards. The charade is so widespread that people by themselves wonder how come if 10 million people indeed signed the streets were so empty yesterday to celebrate the end of the drive and the cursing of Obama.

But the explanation is on the picture above, where the head of the electoral board CNE, Tibisay Lucena, out of all shame, publicly participated in a political act in support of the government, throwing away publicly any pretense of being an impartial umpire. The act was deliberate. The excuse was the presentation of the "certification" of the signatures against Obama, and it included even the signatures collected in Cuba. We have known of course for years that Lucena had tried her best to favor the electoral ambitions of the regime. But under Chavez at least there was enough of a vote capital to make beleive that he won the elections. But under Maduro we know that this is not the case anymore, that outright cheating is now required to barely make it past the post. Need I remind you the indecently speedy way that the CNE proclaimed Maduro's "victory" in 2013 when paper ballots were still warm from the touch of voters? Things have not improved for Maduro since May 2013.

That signature collection had multiple objectives. One was to distract the country from the woes of food and medicine shortage. My guess is that any "positive" effect will be very limited in time, and may already be fading. After all Maduro himself seems to stop milking the thing by claiming that he won and turning the page with the US at a breakneck speed considering that a few days ago he was willing to pick up a rifle and land on an US beach.

Another objective was to rally the bases and the electoral machinery, to put them back in working order, to see if they were in any shape or form to bring in the vote. Too early to tell but I have a feel that if they spent so much time in school yards blackmailing parents, or in public offices blackmailing public servants, or in grocery store food lines exchanging signatures for frozen chickens it is because the door to door signature collection did not work out that well.

But the main objective may have become, in the end, the message in the picture above. Elections do not matter after, all. There is no need to vote. There is no need to respect the vote. When a signature drive is so "successful" there is no need to debate the point, to vote on it, to amend it to seek the largest possible consensus. It is the voice of the people, and the CNE just needs to "certify" the signatures.

To nail the point, not only the presence of Tibisay at the political event was necessary, but also the speed at which she certified the signatures. Let's not even discuss how could she certify school children signatures which are by definition not valid since they are under voting age. What is remarkable is that in 2004 for the signature drive for the Recall Election on Chavez the CNE put all sorts of blocks for signature collection, supervising itself the collection- Then it took weeks to validate a couple of million signatures (the Florida debacle of Gore versus Bush was a child's game).  But this time around the CNE validated in a few days more than 10 million signatures collected in a much messier situation, without any due supervision from the CNE, .

What Tibisay Lucena did yesterday was to kill the purpose of the organization she presides, the CNE. What she did yesterday is to put mob rule above elected democracy. Fascism, if you will. Even communism pretends to have elections. At least it has the formality.

Hasil Pertandingan: Barcelona 4-0 Almeria

Hasil Pertandingan: Barcelona 4-0 Almeria

Pemuncak klasemen Primera Division, Barcelona berhasil memperpanjang kepemimpinannya setelah menyelesaikan jornada 30. Menjamu Almeria di Camp Nou, Kamis (09/04) Barca menang 4-0.

Tidak ada kejutan sejak pertandingan dimulai. Barca langsung menekan dan Almeria kesulitan keluar dari daerahnya sendiri.

Kinerja Pedro yang dua kali merepotkan pertahanan lawan pada lima menit pertama menunjukkan Barca memang di atas angin.Belum lagi ruang yang cukup leluasa bagi Dani Alves dan Adriano dalam membantu serangan dari kedua sayap.

Namun tuan rumah sempat dikejutkan dengan peluang Thievy di menit 15 yang melewati Pedro dan menusuk dari kanan. Berhasil melepas umpan tarik, Weillington gagal memaksimalkannya. Tak beberapa lama Barca memberi respon. Umpan terukur Messi menjangkau Pedro Rodriguez, sayangnya tendangan pemain Spanyol itu masih melebar.

Tanpa kenal lelah, Messi, Pedro, Rakitic terus melakukan tusukan demi tusukan dengan dribble dan umpan demi umpan hingga akhirnya skor pun berubah. Laga memasuki menit 33 dan Lionel Messi yang tak dikawal ketat di area berbahaya membuka celah dan melepaskan tendangan lengkung kaki kiri ke kanan gawang.

Di penghujung babak pertama, Almeria mencoba mengancam lewat skema bola mati. Hanya saja eksekusi tendangan bebas Corona tidak memberi kesulitan berarti bagi Bravo.

Memasuki babak kedua pemandangan tidak banyak berubah. Skema permainan Barcelona masih rapi dan tetap membuat Almeria selalu berada dalam tekanan.

10 menit berlalu, Luis Suarez menggandakan keunggulan Blaugrana. Proses golnya pun hampir mirip dengan gol pembuka yang dicetak Messi di babak pertama. Bedanya kiper Julian sempat menepis dengan tangan kanan, tapi laju bola terlalu deras untuk dihentikan.

Tertinggal dua gol, pergantian pemain yang dilakukan Almeria tak juga membantu, mereka malah harus kebobolan lagi di menit 75. Tendangan sudut yang diambil Xavi mampu dimaksimalkan Marc Bartra dengan tandukan kepala tepat di muka gawang lawan.

10 menit terakhir Barca masih memiliki dua peluang bagus dari Messi. Golnya usai memanfaatkan umpan Rafinha dianulir karena offside lalu tendangan bebasnya dihalau Julian.

Namun pada akhirnya gol keempat benar-benar hadir. Memasuki menit ketiga injury time, Luis Suarez dengan mudah menceploskan si kulit bundar ke gawang yang sudah kosong, memanfaatkan umpan Pedro.

Meraih dua clean sheet berturut-turut, kini Barcelona memiliki 74 poin di pucuk klasemen sementara. Hari Minggu (09/04) nanti mereka akan dijamu Sevilla.

Susunan pemain
Barcelona : Bravo; Alves (Montoya 64), Bartra, Mascherano, Adriano; Sergi Roberto, Xavi, Rakitic (Rafinha 67); Messi, Suarez, Pedro.

Almeria : Julian; Ximo Navarro, Marin, Trujillo, Casado; Partey, Corona; Wellington Silva (Soriano 56), Espinosa (Man 79), Edgar (Zongo 72); Bifouma.

Thundering Twittering Terror

So the OAS summit is about to start.  A lot of clouds are announced, then again nothing may happen. And then again the unexpected may take place. Should we care? I do not need to enter much into that as there is a perfectly good, perfectly complete, perfectly short piece that covers all that you need to know on the Panama gathering, In case you think it is relevant for the future.

Instead let's talk about Maduro's understanding of the situation. Inasmuch as we can even dare making an educated guess about the primary feeling that has taken possession of his psyche. Because I assume that Maduro at least had at some point the smarts of a courtier. That does not mean that he is intelligent, he is not. But at least he had the necessary wiles and instincts to rise inside the Cuban imperial court and the Chavez proconsul court to reach the title of viceroy of Venezuela, no small feat.


But things have gone downhill since and Maduro had to go on survival mode, hence his primal instincts have taken precedence. Cruelty, vulgarity, ignorance, arrogance are now the only things he is able to display.

The problem for Maduro is that two years have gone by and he has nothing to show for and elections are coming that he is certain to lose (he will steal them, but that is another story). The only thing left to do is to create tools of pressure on the people to scare them into toeing the line. And Obama has served the perfect excuse with his executive order. Mind you, Obama was just an excuse, I am sure that Maduro and his team had other options prepared, but Obama was a convenient bonus. The jailing and torture of Lopez were already part of a plan set long ago, in case you are willing to blame Obama for every evil.

This is how you need to understand the drive to collect the "10 million" signatures that are to be delivered to Obama so he feels compelled to repeal his executive order.  The world knows by now that those signatures come from non Venezuelans, that school children and public workers were forced to sign, that people have already been fired for not signing, or bribed with a chicken into signing, and what not.  Those signatures are D.O.A for Obama and the civilized world.

So why?

Because it is an internal demonstration of strength. It is set to demonstrate to "el pueblo" that the regime is a totalitarian state, able to scare people into signing, creating in them the idea that their vote is not going to be safe, unknown. Showing that data can be manipulated at ease like they do with Twitter though all sorts of robots tweeting happily any hashtag. To show that the agenda is set by Maduro, not by anyone else. That who is guilty and corrupt and narc is decided by Maduro, not by honest observers. That truth has nothing to do with power. That resistance is futile.

What we have seen in recent weeks is one of the most odious, naked exercise of fascist power. Fascist but XXI century style, bloodless so far, shrouded in a mist that the civilized world does not dare to pierce, that sickly fascinates some of that so called civilized world. XXI century fascism fascinates. Truly.

It is too early to see whether it worked. But it announces harsh days ahead.

Fun Poll result

I took the opportunity of Easter week, traditionally the lowest readership week with the one between Christmas and New Year, to run a poll.

Even though visitors kept at a brisk pace (over 4000 unique visitor a day but I suspect at least half coming from those robot spam visits links that one should never open and that Google normally cleanses but has been remiss lately) I figured out that this week represents more regular readers than usual. Stats repeated historical results. Normally people answering a poll represent no more than 5% of those that actually visit a given page/post that week. This week it was even lower (though I did not advertise the poll, on purpose).  

This is all fine because I was wondering how people feel about posts in Spanish that have become more frequent (and that are slowly but surely receiving more hits). Note: I have the feeling that people did not quite get that it was a multiple choice, but that is OK in the end.

72% say that they are bilingual enough, or not bothered by the bilingual aspect of the blog. So it stays that way.

Only 1% wanted Spanish posts elsewhere. I am sorry for those who do not like my posts in Spanish but there are here to stay. And be happy that I do not start putting some in French!

6% only wanted a Facebook page complement (I used to have one but it was a drag for me and I dropped it). So it will remain dormant.

Nobody had an opinion on Twitter. Clearly what I tweet and what I blog have a different customer base.......

2% says that my blog is drivel but 47% that I am the best, so there is a fan base and there are still chavistas that read this blog. Amusing.  And heartfelt thanks tot hose who put the best even though the intention of the question was clearly a joke :-)

Finally, I suggested the idea of a PayPal box. The reception was less enthusiastic. Only 22% would not question the independence of this blog if there were a Pay Pal box and only 17% would be inclined to chip in something if requested.

Now I am going to get a little bit more on this.  This blog, as you know, has never received a penny from anyone. At most it received a dozen lunch/coffee invitations over a decade.  That is that. No one could have paid me to do what I have done since 2003. There is no money for that. Such a labor of love can come only from, well, love.  You have it in you or you do not. As a matter of fact, I cannot think of any, ANY, chavista blog that can even remotely compare to the opposition blogs that you all know so well. Think about it for a minute.... A mercenary runs for only so long, no matter how much money is involved.

But times have changed, currency here is worthless. Who knows what I may need to write some day, such as paying for a domain outside of Venezuela if blogger is blocked or something.  Clearly making a living from this blog has never been an option, no matter how many advertising box one could put, an even less tasteful prospect than a PayPal box.

So I am confirmed in that my reputation of independence is one of the main values of that blog. Yet if need arises I should be ready to put up a PayPal box so as to pay for a domain, or a trip overseas to attend a conference on human rights. Or something of the kind. Never for personal gain, you can be assured of that. The 78% of you that remained silent can be reassured.
