“He’s Back, He’s Back!”- Hugo Chavez Returns Home

By Javier Manjarres

Hugo-Chavez-y-Fidel-CastroVenezuelan socialist strongman Hugo Chavez has returned to his native Venezuela after convalescing in Cuba for two months from his recent cancer surgery. Chavez’s not-so-triumphant return ends the speculation that he was on his death bed, at least for now, and according to some of his recent tweets, Chavez believes that it’s “onwards to victory forever!  We will live and we will conquer!”  I guess that statement from Chavez ends the debate as to whether or not the Presidential elections held in Venezuela were conducted fairly- so much for fair elections. 

“There were some who dream of unseating Chavez and the revolution, but here we always said Chavez is the president elected and re-elected by will of the Venezuelan people.”- Information Minister Ernesto Villegas

Government ministers were so jubilant about Chavez’s return, that they started singing “He’s back, he’s back!” live on state TV.  And what did his long-time mentor and socialist partner-in-crime Fidel Castro have to say about Chavez’  lengthy absence? 

“I’m pleased you have been able to return to the piece of … soil you love so much and the fraternal people who give you so much support,” Fidel Castro wrote to Chavez in a letter published by Cuba’s government on Monday. “You have learnt a lot about life, Hugo, in those tough days of suffering and sacrifice,” he added, urging continued discretion over Chavez’s condition to thwart “fascists” intent on toppling him. – Reuters

Many within Chavez’s regime were elated with his return, chanting “He’s back, he’s back!” on live state run television. Even with his return home, Chavez & Co. have been actively planning a post-Chavez Venezuela that would include  installing one of Chavez’ closest and trusted confidants- most likely his hand-picked Vice President- who would continue to drive Chavez’s socialist agenda.  How else would Chavez keep his promise that his movement remains “onwards to victory forever?”

    Signs of a power vacuum are evident, according to some analysts, which may be a reason for Chavez’s return despite the chance that his cancer treatment and recovery in Cuba were not complete.

    Pelosi knows very well that the “sequester” was Obama’s deal. Now they are using it to once more miss-inform the low-informed voters. Her only purpose is to continue lying to the American people. The O adminstration isn’t interested in cuts but to keep spending more. Now that Obama’s idea comes to a reality the “sequester” is bad for them because it translate into big CUTS.

      You are exactly right. They lie, cheat and steal and the MSM supports every thing they say. The truth is alien to the left, and frankly I haven’t a clue how to fight it with the media in league with them.
