I just saw this on Spanish (from Spain) TV.

I’m surprised any action is being taken against Obama’s heart-throb. I guess the bloom is off the rose, or else somebody with some common sense has pushed Barry out of his Barcalounger and taken the controls for a moment or too.

The Obama administration on Sunday expelled Venezuela’s consul general in Miami after allegations surfaced that she discussed possible cyber-attacks on U.S. soil while she was stationed at her country’s embassy in Mexico.

The State Department said it declared the diplomat, Livia Acosta Noguera, persona non grata and had given her until Tuesday to leave the country.

Snip-——

The news of the diplomatic expulsion comes as Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is expecting to arrive in Caracas late Sunday as part of a four-nation visit to some of his Latin American allies.

-——somebody with some common sense has pushed Barry——

You called it correct

The Miami Herald piece noted just above says the Congress has been on this for a while and the State Dept finally got around to act

I was out of the country this past summer (Latin America) and I can definitely see a major difference of opinion regarding Obama. Two years ago, they were ecstatic about him. That is no longer the case. There’s nothing much left of that vision of a rose....more like a thorny little stem now.

Livia Acosta Noguera must have been skimming too much off the Department of Juctice drug trafficing efforts.

Go directly home, do not pass go, enjoy what’s left of your short life.

I think the same is true in Spain, too. Of course, they just got rid of their version of Obama (Zapatero), so maybe that’s a positive sign for us!

Somewhere the piece says Imanutjob and Chavez are going together to the Nicaraguan presidential inauguration.

I don’t know the other of the possible 4

Does anyone really believe a “mexican cyber pirate” was asked for and gave “access codes” to “US nuclear facilities”?
Dispersed locations, codes variable- impenetrable. Cyber pirate— if he’s filmed he’s known and if known- toast either from mex’s or others.

Amateur hour. But more important is the presence of med range missiles put in Venezuela by Iran.
EMP attack as a goal— there’s something to be concerned about.

That and Joe Kennedy continuing to give away “free” Venezuelan heating oil from Citgo.

It would be a shame if Ahmadinejad’s aircraft fell out of the sky on the way to Venezuela.

Ecuador?

I got some bananas from Ecuador at Safeway a while back. They were, by far, the best bananas I have ever had.

I doubt I will buy them again.

It would violate international law to decapitate a foreign diplomat rather than expel him but honestly if I were President I’d probably have blown this guy’s head off personally to set an example for every other piece of crap who thinks he can use his diplomatic immunity to wage war on the United States.

In fact, Obama is a fool for not doing so, it would have sent his approval rating through the roof. ;d

Venezuelan, Like Castro, Has Brother at the Ready......"...“It would be unforgivable to limit ourselves to only electoral or other methods of struggle,” said Adán Chávez, a former university professor involved in political activity long before his brother...formed a nationalist cell of young army officers in the late 1970s.

The prominence of Adán Chávez reflects his brother’s dominance of Venezuelan politics since he was first elected president in 1998. Over the years, Hugo Chávez has consistently winnowed other top advisers and potential rivals who rose from his own political movement. Some who remain, like Vice President Elías Jaua, a former director of land expropriations, exhibit total loyalty...

Still, no one in the government, including Adán Chávez, has displayed the president’s visceral ability to connect with poor Venezuelans. That may not have mattered too much in Cuba, where the Communist Party holds unrivaled authority over the nation’s political system. But if Hugo Chávez is unable to quickly return to power in Venezuela, it remains to be seen how effectively his brother can hold off the spirited, if divided, opposition here and build support in a governing movement...centered around the president himself.

...biographers of Hugo Chávez attribute the president’s political evolution, if not his bruising political style, in part to Adán’s influence and ties in the 1970s with guerrilla leaders like Douglas Bravo, who advocated using Venezuela’s petroleum reserves as a tool for radical change.

While Hugo Chávez grew close to Mr. Bravo and then broke with him, as he has done repeatedly with other mentors, the president still incorporated such thinking into his own ideology, using oil revenues as the driving force in his socialist-inspired revolution.

Now, Mr. Bravo, 79, who is a critic of what he describes as Venezuela’s new dependence on countries like China and Russia, said Adán Chávez was clearly “in the line of succession.”...

Hussein is posing as “tough” by this move, since the election is only 10 months away.

It means nothing as far as the agenda goes: it is still fascism, full speed ahead.

The exit of Zapatero could be a STEP in the right direction. The REAL problem is that Spain needs a speeding up of its reevangelization process. (St. Josemaría Escriva, please intercede for Spain with us.)
