CHAVEZ WATCH - OCTOBER UPDATE


After the shenanigans he pulled last month at the U.N., I just wanted to update you on the happenings in Hugo's world. I'm gonna keep a close watch on this thug and make sure the BOYCOTT on CITGO continues - no matter what he says!

Since last month, 7-Eleven stations around the country have joined the BOYCOTT CITGO movement. They announced that they would no longer support or sell CITGO products in any of their 2100 gas selling stores. Awesome!

In other news, after returning from his idiotic trip to the U.N., Chavez claimed he had a White House spy, who has been informing him of Bush's plans to topple his government. Meanwhile, tens of thousands of protesters filled the streets of Venezuela to protest this thug and his policies. The people are beginning to see understand that his socialist policies have actually made the country worse off for poor people! A revolt will happen against this worm, unless he declares himself dictator first.

Chavez has now turned his full attention to his bid for a U.N. Security Council seat for Venezuela. Hugo thinks this is his key to fighting the "Owners of the Universe" (aka the U.S. / West). Well, U.S.-backed Guatemala is still coming out ahead in the U.N. polling, but the margin is still to close - even after 22 votes! Remember, Chavez has tried to line up support for his Security Council seat bid with other prominent members of the veto-wielding Security Council club. Last month, he basically bribed China for their vote by agreeing to supply 20% of their oil needs... Let's keep an eye on this...

Finally, "compassionate" Chavez has announced that he will, again, seize more oil companies in Venezuela, further nationalizing that nations oil industry.
Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez's plan to take control of oil production joint ventures run by Exxon Mobil Corp. and ConocoPhillips may lead to defaults on $1.6 billion in bonds.

Chavez said his government would seize four companies owned in part by Exxon, ConocoPhillips, Chevron Corp., France's Total SA and Norway's Statoil ASA. The ventures, set up before Chavez came to power in 1999, pump 22 percent of the nation's oil. Two of them sold the bonds and the others owe $2.3 billion in loans.

We need to keep the pressure up against this thug. Do what you can to stop the money flowing to him from the U.S. BOYCOTT CITGO today!
