We Interrupt Maduro’s Enabling Bill In Order To Defend Syria

August 30, 2013


All of a sudden Maduro’s PSUV party has lost one vote in the Venezuelan National Assembly, leaving it two short of the required 99 votes because, of all reasons, Deputy Adel el Zabayar, a Deputy from Bolivar State, has requested a leave of absence to go and fight for the Syrian Government.

El Zabayar was an alternate in the National Assembly, but became a Deputy when Rafael Gil was named President of the Corporación Venezolana de Guayana. Thus, El Zabayar has no alternate and PSUV has thus lost a vote. .

El Zabayar is of Syrian origin and is President of the Venezuelan Arab League and a former member of the Venezuelan Comunist party.

I guess that is what Maduro meant when he said that he would help Syria if the US attacked. El Zabayar said that he would return to Venezuela if Maduro asked him to. But I guess the Syrian fight is more important than anything happening in Venezuela. I hope other PSUV Deputies join him in this fight for authoritarianism. Maybe they will be further away from their quorum.

    Miguel, if they want this they will get it.

    There are published reports that the offer to jump ship has reached US$800,000 per vote.

    Let’s see what happens. If they present it in the AN then they have the votes.

    If they don’t they will just do an “end around” like Chavez did & do whatever they want, the constitution be damned.

    Does it occur to anyone that he robs hi constituents of a voice in the Naional Assembly when he does this? Quite a betrayal!

    • Super Says:

      Not if his constituents are all Syrians and Hezbollah followers, which they may very well be given the demographic shenanigans of these past years!!

    Maduro is carefully watching Assad. One day Maduro could be in the same situation with the majority of Venezuelans wanting to overthrow him. Oh never mind, Maduro is there right now.

    Any turmoil in the Middle East is good for Castro and Venezuela’s military caste. It means higher oil prices. It means more Swiss franks for Diosdado. It means yummy fish in London for Tibisay. It means better Italian clothes for Cilia.
    Strange how things are so connected.

    Just when you think they have run out of things to steal http://news.yahoo.com/venezuela-dont-watch-back-watch-hair-103220451.html and Maduro blames it on the opposition to boot!

    El ministro de Finanzas de Venezuela, Nelson Merentes, afirmó este domingo que el dólar paralelo “perturba” la sociedad,

    “Hay que reformar varias leyes”, agregó al mencionar la de Ilícitos Cambiarios que aseguró “no ha cumplido los objetivos” y la de Mercado de Capitales, que podría traer de vuelta a las casas de bolsa como entes autorizados por el BCV.

    Venezuela mantiene un fuerte control de cambios con una cotización oficial de 6,30 bolívares por dólar, pero la moneda estadounidense es prácticamente inaccesible, lo que fomenta un mercado paralelo en el que la tasa oficial casi se sextuplica.

  9. Good day! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog.
    Is it very hard to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick.
    I’m thinking about setting up my own but I’m not sure where to start.
    Do you have any tips or suggestions? Cheers
