What the Honduran Constitution States and the current situation of Honduras:

This is from the blog of Laura Miranda-Flefil's Blog. She is a Honduran lawyer in Tegucigalpa. it shows prrof that the world governments are wrong, an that this was not a coup.

What the Honduran Constitution States and the current situation of Honduras:

The Honduran Constitution has been enforced in Honduras since January 20th 1982
This is the longest running Constitution in the History of our country
It was a Historical document that put an end to a time of great crisis in our country, after decades of military coups and presidents who abused reelection (one of whom stayed in power for 17 years)
The Honduran Constitution has a total of 379 articles
According to article 373, articles of the constitution can be reformed by declaration of the National Congress, in ordinary sessions, by a vote of no less than 2/3 of Congressmen.
Article 374 establishes the following prohibition: UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCE CAN THE FOLLOWING ARTICLES BE REFORMED:
o Form of Government - article 4 of the Constitution
o National Territory – articles 9, 10, 11, 12, 13 and 14 of the Constitution
o The way the constitution can be changed – article 373 of the Constitution
o Presidential Term (4 years) - article 237 of the Constitution
o Prohibition of Reelection to the Office of President of the Republic – article 237 of the Constitution
o Disposition of those who can’t serve as President
Every article that doesn’t talk of such things CAN BE and some HAVE BEEN REFORMED
Question: what exactly did Mr Zelaya intend with his “cuarta urna” election last Sunday?
If anyone thinks he didn’t want to be reelected or stay in continuous power, he or she need only look at his various speeches over the last months, one of them last Thursday given over the course of 2 hours in which he stated “the reelection of a president will be a subject of discussion of the new national constitutional assembly” (what he wanted to install with the cuarta urna)
A constitutional assembly can’t coexist with Congress, installing one would mean the dissolution of this power.
A constitutional assembly means rewriting the whole constitution, which is unconstitutional.
The "cuarta urna" was declared illegal by the Court of Administrative Law, ratified by the Court of Appeals. The action to have them declared as such was started by the District Attorney’s office; the Attorney General answered the action by saying that the “cuarta urna” was UNCONSTITUTIONAL and ILLEGAL.
The Superior Electoral Tribunal declared the “cuarta urna” to be illegal and all material to be used for it to be illegal material.
The constitution and the actions in its defense are being supported by Congress, Supreme Court of Honduras, Superior Electoral Tribunal, Attorney General, District Attorney, Armed Forces, Human Rights Movement, Democratic Civil Movement, Generation X and Y Movement, Alliance for Peace and Democracy, the Catholic Church, Evangelical Churches and the majority of the Honduran Population.
Last week at least 50,000 people in San Pedro Sula, the industrial capital of Honduras, protested against the illegal “cuarta urna”.
Manuel Zelaya fired the Joint Chief of Staff for not accepting the unconstitutional order to make the armed forces guard the “cuarta urna” actions, congress (using article 205, numeral 20 of the Constitution) disapproved this action and reinstated the Joint Chief of Staff in his post. The Supreme Court of Justice admitted 2 writs by the District Attorney and a private attorney, temporarily reinstating the Joint Chief of Staff pending further review.
Last Thursday, Mr Zelaya and his supporters stormed the Air Force Base in Toncontin and extracted the “cuarta urna” materials that had been declared illegal; the material had been made and printed in VENEZUELA.
THIS IS NOT A MILITARY COUP. The Supreme Court of Honduras ordered the military to seize any illegal material, some of which was in the Zelaya household.
No constitutional power has been dissolved. All institutions are still at work and have the same elected leaders.

Article 42, numeral 5 of the Honduran Constitution states that citizenship is LOST if you incite, promote or support the continuity or reelection of the President of our Republic.
Article 3 of the Honduran Constitution states that “nobody owes obedience to a usurper government…who breaks or doesn’t acknowledge what the Constitution and its laws state. The acts that these authorities verify are NULL AND VOID. The population has the right to resort to insurgence in defense of CONSTITUTIONAL ORDER”
Article 2 of the Honduran Constitution states that the usurpation of any power of the government constitutes a crime typified as TREASON AGAINST THE COUNTRY and that these cases are imprescriptible and the action can be started by the state or by any citizen.
Honduras doesn’t have a vice president, he resigned to run for president himself, and by article 242 of the Constitution the President of Congress becomes the President of Honduras
128 of the 128 congressmen approved the decree that made Roberto Micheletti Bain the current president; he is no longer a congressman, he doesn’t hold any congressional office, he is no longer the president of the Honduran Congress, in other words he doesn't hold 2 offices.
Until last Sunday Honduras had yet to have an approved budget, Manuel Zelaya had yet to send it to Congress for its approval. This constitutes Penal Crimes of Abuse of Power and Disobedience.
Article 40 of the Constitution states that all citizens of Honduras have the obligation to abide by, defend and uphold the Constitution and it’s laws
Upon taking power every president (and every public officer) after 1982 have taken the following oath “I Promise to be faithful to the Republic, to abide by and uphold the Constitution and its laws.” Mr Zelaya took this oath and so did Constitutional President Roberto Micheletti Bain. (article 322 of the Honduran Constitution)

Canada on Wrong Side of Honduras situation.

Today I am ashamed of my country. A country that has so often been on the right side of history. A country spoke out against Apartheid before it was popular to do so. Who spoke out against the actions of the Iranian government's barbarism with regard to their elections.... On the eve of Canada Day where we celebrate our freedoms and constitution, the Canadian Government has appallingly come out against Hondurans enjoyong the same freedoms we are about to celebrate, and has added its voice to the growing numbers of leftists who support the restoration to power of a thug who sought to do an end run around the constitution of that country, and move his country out of the realm of constitutional democracies and toward a Hugo Chavez style tyranny?
Is our department of foreign affairs taking its mrching orders from Washington?

Memo to the so-called Conservative Party of Canada: Please do not bother to call for a donation, and take me off your mailing list.

Weakened Argentine President Sides with Chavez Thugs

Just when you think things can't get any more irrational or insane than they already are, now we have President Christina Fernandez of Argentina saying she will accompany Jose manuel Zelaya as he returns to Honduras to take back power (so he thinks) later this week.
It should be noted that the leftist Argentine leader and her party suffered a major defeat at the hands of the people in elections there last week.
The fact remains that Zelaya tried to perpetuate the Chavez style Bolivarist socialist revolution by attempting to circumvent a constitution that has been running effectively for 27 years, an eternity by latin American standards, and no longer has the support of the people, nor of his peers in elected office, nor does he enjoy the confidence of the Supreme Court.
Moreover, the United Nations is removing its mask now, and will be issuing a statement saying that they do not recognize the new government in Honduras.
I am calling on alllovers of freedom, no matter you live to speak out in support of the new government in Honduras, and condemn the socialist regimes in the world who seek to restore an oppressor who broke the laws and constitution that he had sworn to follow and defend when he took the oath of office. If enough people get behind truth and justice, perhaps people in other countries might find the courage to oust their thug regimes.

What the Honduran Constitution says: Obama on the Wrong side of History

Honduran Blogger and lawyer Laura Miranda Flefil has made an excellent post, in English on her blog which outlines what the Constitution says, and how Former president Zelaya tried to circumvent it. Muchas Gracias Laura!

Zapatero Joins in Solidarity with the Socialist Fraternity

Surprise surprise, the far left socialist government of Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero (aka "Zappy")has joined with Hugo Chavez, Daniel Ortega and others in the Socialist Fraternity in demanding the retoration of the would-be dictator Jose Manuel Zelaya to power... This is the same guy who shredded the traditional social fabric of Spain in a matter of months and even extended full human rights to apes...
Now he is demanding that the EU recall its ambassadors to Tegucigalpa pending the restoration of Comrade Zelaya to power.

No Coup in Honduras. Zelaya legally impeached: What the MSM isn't telling you.

While the Mainstream Media wrings its hands in unison with their hero/messiah Barack Hussein Obama about the coup in Honduras, the truth is busy lacing up its boots in the blogosphere.

President Jose Manuel Zelaya was legally impeached by the Congress of Honduras on the grounds of his attempted shredding of the constitution by institutingan illegal referendum that would have extended his term as president a la Hugo Chavez.
Members of his own Liberal party apprently agreed that Zelaya was in breach of the constutution as amny of them supported the impeachment. The armed forces came in only to enforce the order to remove him from office, which they did in a civilized fashion.
This was not a military coup. In a military coup, a general/strongman takes over as president and imposes martial law, then rules by Junta.
In this case, Roberto Micheletti , the constitutional successor to te president assumed office, and constitutional democracy continues in this Central American republic. Micehletti will serve as president until regularly scheduled elections in November.

Meanwhile Barack Hussein Obama has sided with the enemies of freedom and rule of law once again. He is calling it an illegal coup d'etat, singing in full chorus with five party harmony with such notable proponents of individual liberty anc constitutionally limited government as Hugo Chavez, Daniel Ortega, the Castro boys and Rafael Correa.

Given the slaps in the face Obama has endured virtually without comment from the potbellied little psychotic dictator of North Korea and the Theocratic Thugocracy of Iran, then the legitimate government of Honduras should feel very confident that they too can tell the current excuse for President of the United States to butt out of their internal affairs.

To think that the United States which was founded in response to a despotic government that did not respect human rights is now siding with some of the worst abusers of human rights in the world in their bid to keep the people of another country in chains in the name of socialist revolution.

It should be enough to get every American to question Obama's motivations with regard to his own domestic policies which are rolling back traditional freedoms every single day.

Are the Chavez Bolivaristas supporting Zelaya because they fear that if the true story gets out that their own opponents will become eboldened and do the same to them?

And could Obama's response be born of similar fears?

Obama declares Honduras Coup Illegal, Says Zelaya Still President

Like Jimmy carter before him, Barack Hussein Obama seems to be a guy who never met a despot he didn't like....
Sure didn't take him long to stand up in defense of this little leftist wannabee tinpot dictator!

In any case we will see whether the new government will listen to this grovelling weakling president.

Remember that it took him well over 10 days of watching people being clubbed with trucheons and shot in the streets to say anything definitive or remotely firm about the thug regime in Iran, one which he still wants to sit down and talk with.

As thanks, he will likely get nothing but more scorn heaped on him by Chavez, Ortega and company.

The only language these guys understand is strength...But Obama is so narcissitic that he really believes he will win these thugs in $4000.00 suits over with the force an charm of his magnetic personality and sweeping oratory...

Islam in Fast Demise: 16 000 Leave Islam Every Day

Africa is going to be an exciting place to be in the next few years. Its amazing how many Roman Catholic priests in Canada these days are from Nigeria and other such places where seminaries are filled to overflowing...These guys are truly on fire for Jesus, probably because he's all they have, unlike we in the affluent west who, as the parable of ... Read Morethe sower says, are having the wrd choked off by the accoutrements of wealth.
I have al,so heard it said that midway through the 20th century, the median Christian was a middle aged white male of European stock. Today, the median Christian is a dark skinned woman under the age of 30!
The seeds planted by JPII and countless missionaries of all denominations in Africa are producing 100 fold!
Islam in Fast Demise:In Africa Alone Everyday, 16,000 Muslims Leave Islam

"Obama is Running a Gangster Government"

"How's your man in Washington?"

Said Paul Larkin to his friend Hank Rearden in "Atlas Shrugged".... Rearden, a man who worked for his living could not grasp the thug politics that the looter Paul Larkin was alluding to.
One of the better members of Congress is Michelle Bachman. She gets it. She "gets it" when it comes to understading the transformation that Obama and his thugocracy are trying to pull off, ad she "gets it" in terms of having donkey manure (the terminology was chosen carefully) heaped on her by the left.
In this video, Michelle Bachman (R) MN asserts that we now live under a gangster government such as existed in the fictional setting of "Atlas Shrugged". WAKE UP PEOPLE!

North Korea: Clear & Present Danger

Former (and hopefully future) Presidential candidate Mike Huckabee has hit it on the head again with his recent comments about the clear and present danger presented by North Korea.
I have long been saying that North Korea-not Iran or iraq- posed the greatest danger to US security and indeed the continuance of the USA as a superpower.
They have long been at the apex of the axis of evil, and with the Second Coming of Jimmy Carter in the oval office, the danger presented by North Korea should now be clear to one and all.North Korea has nuclear weapons. Iran does not... yet...
If one watches the behaviour of not only North Korea, but also the People's Republic of China, it is obvious that these countries have weighed President Obama in the balance and has been found wanting.
North Korea is now a nuclear power. They apparently don't have the means to deliver a warhead accurately to a major continental US city, nor do they have the number of warheads required to make an attack on the US anything more than a suicide bombing, however, there is one strategy i see playing out that the mainstream media is ignring to their-and our-peril: The North Koreans may well have the means to deliver an Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) attack. The scenario would entail a nuclear warhead the size of the one that was dropped on Hiroshima be detonated 180 miles or 300 km above ground. The explosion would send out an electromagnetic pulse which would effectively knock out all electricicty and communications within a given radius.
According to an internet primer published by the Federation of American Scientists[20]

A high-altitude nuclear detonation produces an immediate flux of gamma rays from the nuclear reactions within the device. These photons in turn produce high energy free electrons by Compton scattering at altitudes between (roughly) 20 and 40 km. These electrons are then trapped in the Earth's magnetic field, giving rise to an oscillating electric current. This current is asymmetric in general and gives rise to a rapidly rising radiated electromagnetic field called an electromagnetic pulse (EMP). Because the electrons are trapped essentially simultaneously, a very large electromagnetic source radiates coherently.
The pulse can easily span continent-sized areas, and this radiation can affect systems on land, sea, and air. The first recorded EMP incident accompanied a high-altitude nuclear test over the South Pacific and resulted in power system failures as far away as Hawaii. A large device detonated at 400–500 km (250 to 312 miles) over Kansas would affect all of the continental U.S. The signal from such an event extends to the visual horizon as seen from the burst point.
Since we doubt that, from a land launch in North Korea the rogue republic could hit the continental US, the likelihood that they would score a hit above Kansas , thus paralyzing the entire US, they could very effectively blow one up just east of Hawaii, and take out the west coast, and possibly some of the control centres in the western states that control the US nuclear arsenal.
The goal of North Korea has always been, as taught by Kim Il-Sung's "Juche" philosophy, is to unite all of Korea, and make sure that no foreign ever dominates them again. So what if the North Koreans launch another missile and detonate it over the Pacific, east of Japan so as to knock out Japan's power and communications, as well as that of South Korea and Taiwan?
North Korea has the fourth largest standing army in the world, more than twice as many men unde arms than South korea has. Mreover, it is a very low-tech fighting force, while South Korea, with its American re-inforcements are high tech, and thus reliant on weapons whose effectiveness would be limited by the results of an EMP blast.
This would allow North Korea to take the South very quickly.
All this begs the question as to why China continues to allow (and indeed protect) a regime such as this on its border? What can they possibly gain?
The Chinese government has also noticed the resemblance between the community organizer from Chicago and the peanut farmer from Georgia, and sees an opportunity to chane the Americans right out of east Asia and established its own hegemony.
Whether the North Koreans act or not, the situation of the freedom-loving Taiwanese is hanging precariously in the balance. The Chinese are trying to determine once and for all whether the Obama administration would be willing or able to defend Taiwan, and under what conditions. The Taiwanese are watching as well, and if they determine that the US will not honour its defense commitments, they may well accept terms from China, whereby the 'renegade province' will return to the fold, under a one country two systems arrangement such as Hong Kong now lives under. China is following tupical Sun Tzu, in that they are claiming the higher ground, using their spies well, and may be able to achieve their foreign policy goals without needlessly expending soldiers. (see Sun Tzu's "the Art of War").
While China would not likely want to "take over" Korea or Japan, by taking Taiwan, and chasing the US out of the east, they establish hegemony in the region much as in the glory days of past dynasties of the "Middle Kingdom" which was at the centre of a large web of tributary states in the region. China would thus elipse the US as the world's dominant military and economic power.
How much time remains to correct the errors that led us to this state of affairs is in question.
This cannot wait until 2010. The american PEOPLE must bring to bear massive pressure on their elected representatives and let them know that they need to make some policy changes and force Obama to grow a backbone.
Japan must be informed that they should re-arm. While many veterans of World War II might find this idea alarming, it is far less so than losing all influence in the area. Japan must remain an ally, but must have the means to deal with danger in the region without depending on the USA, which is spread out too far and wide. A strong Japan will counterbalance a strong China.
The US must make it clear that they will honour their commitment to Taiwan. Taiwan too, must be encouraged to take on more of its own defense at the same time.
If China sees that they have nothing to gain by allowing Kim Jong-il and his junta in power, they will move to bring that regime into line, in a manner that saves face. Make no mistake about it, North and South Korea will not be reunited at any time in the near future, since China, historically likes to have buffer-tributary states on its immediate borders. At the end of the day, we must learn from history the fact that Theodore Roosevelt was correct when he said "walk softly, but carry a big stick". The thug regimes of the world respect two things: Strength and resolve, and when the west puts the likes of Neville Chmaberlain, Jimmy Carter, Brack Obama and Gordon Brown in power, the dictators know that their time to act has come. Love peace? Prepare for war. Hopefully you will never have to fight it.

"We believe the solution to the human condition is Liberty."

"The War Room" with John Quinn & Rose Tennant is arguably one of the best talk shows on radio. Libertarian with a conservative bent (Conservatarian?) Quinn & Rose don't mince words.

Here is the Quick Start Guide to the Quinn and Rose Show. It's a common sense manifesto to return the USA from socialism to its liberty-loving roots.

QUINNs FIRST LAW: Liberalism always generates the exact opposite of its stated intent.

1. We believe the solution to the human condition is Liberty. Three hundred years of the most successful country the globe has ever seen is proof enough. No government program created this country, free people created this country.

2. The unspoken Bush doctrine is this, the decades of the dictators are over. We had a parade of them for a hundred years. They have killed one hundred million of us. We have learned our lesson. UPDATE SINCE NOVEMBER: MAYBE WE HAVENT.

3. America is not an Imperialist nation despite what your professors tell you. We are not shoving our way of life down anyones throats, we are shoving freedom down the throats of tyrants so other people can chose their own way of life. That is the answer to the question "What is the role of the worlds only superpower?".

4. Marxism is the greatest threat to human freedom and growth. It has never worked anywhere it has been tried, but it is still taught in every college. Its time to drain the swamp of these 1960s reprobates and charge them with selling a defective product. UPDATE: RADICAL ISLAM NOW JOINS MARXISM, AND LIBERALS ARE DOING EVERYTHING THEY CAN TO ENABLE IT. NOW THE MSA IS ON EVERY COLLEGE CAMPUS AND LIBERALS ARE FALLING ALL OVER THEMSELVES TO KOWTOW TO IT.

5. America is not the world largest polluter because a) carbon dioxide is not a pollutant, it is plant food. b) In terms of wealth versus tons of pollution we are the cleanest country on earth because we are free and have the disposable income to clean up after our selves; something the vaunted Soviet block never had.

6. The environmental movement uses the environment and animal species as an excuse for putting the means of production (the land) off limits to the American citizen. Putting the means of production off limits to the citizen is the definition of communism. UPDATE: PUTTING GAS AND OIL OFF LIMIITS TO THE CITIZEN IS THE DEFINITION OF INSANITY.

7. We have a highly progressive income tax. The tax code rewards bad choices and punishes good ones. Russia has moved to a 13% flat tax. So we have Karl Marxs tax system and Russia has Steve Forbes. If you dont see a problem here, you are probably a registered democrat.

8. Abortion is the Sacrament of the Feminist Church. It is the ultimate celebration of the separation of a woman from her nature. Feminists like this will go to any lengths to protect this so-called right. There is no abortion argument that is not rooted in feminist rage, personal inconvenience, or self loathing.

9. The fundamental difference between Liberals and Conservatives is - Liberals see every new life as a potential problem and a burden. Conservatives see every new life as a potential source of creativity and wealth. Allow me to elaborate a little bit on that: When your view of your responsibility to your fellow citizen is to take care of them through government planning and government force, every new person born becomes another mouth to feed another person to educate another burden on the states resources. If you are a liberal you believe that resources are limited and there is only so much to go around. You see yourself or government policy as the arbiters of who gets what. A conservative understands that new wealth is created every time human creativity acts on a resource and is unlimited. To a conservative, life is a blessing. To a liberal life is a curse. (Does this clarify their love of abortion and euthanasia?)

10. There is no conclusive evidence that humans have caused global warming. It is the hoax of the century, and it makes a lot of people a lot of grant money. It also makes a convenient excuse for putting a global governor on capitalism to make the world fair for dictators and socialist welfare states. So, why not teach it to our kids and lets pretend that its true? UPDATE: EVEN THE UN IS NOW HAVING DOUBTS AND SCIENTISTS ARE WARNING THAT WE MAY BE RETURNING TO THE MINI ICE AGE OF THE 16 AND 1700s.

11. No-one had ever died trying to paddle a rubber boat from Miami to Cuba.

12. Racial profiling is what groups pejoratively call common sense when they have a problem that they dont want to talk about. When you notice that several Middle Eastern men boarding an airplane are acting strangely, you yank them out of line and your airline gets sued for 1.2 million dollars. You were engaging in common sense, but they say you were engaging in racial profiling. And so racial profiling is what groups call common sense when they have a problem they dont want to talk about. And when they say they do want to discuss it with you they really dont they just want to shut you up.

13. To a Conservative adversity is indistinguishable from opportunity.

14. The United Nations is an expensive farce that allows tyrants to park illegally and pretend that they are legitimate World Statesmen - they are not They are thugs in $4000.00 suits.

15. Wahhabist Islam is a global mental illness. It is a sickness, it is a cancer and it is evil.

16. There is such a thing as Evil, and you cannot negotiate with it.

17. Common sense and government are mutually exclusive. Government is what you do when you've decided that you cant trust the citizen to use their common sense. So, when you as an elitist and one of our betters notices that not all of us out here are perfect, and not all of us make the right judgments about everything, you then impose your bureaucratic rules upon us and we cant use our common sense any more. Dont ever let a politician tell you that he is going to bring common sense to government. The only way to bring common sense to government is to get rid of government and allow people to use their common sense instead.

18. Reganomics is the only economics that works. Lowering tax rates increases wealth to everyone, including the government because there is no limit to wealth. New wealth is created where wealth did not exist before when a human acts on a resource and humans can only do that when they are free. (see: North Korea and Palestine) Taxes are restrictions on freedom.

19. The Second Amendment [to the US constitution] is the essential counterbalance to the fearsome power of lawmaking, and it means exactly what it says. ["A well-regulated Militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed."] If you are a lawmaker and this amendment makes you nervous; good! As long as you stay nervous you have nothing to fear.

20. In our Republic, God is a necessary legal concept. This is not a Democracy, it is a Representative Constitutional Republic and there is a big difference. In case you are wondering why so many of the Socialists out there want God out of everything in our public life there is a real utilitarian reason for this. It is not just that the idea of God makes them uncomfortable personally. God is a major speed bump on their super highway to their super state. Why? Because our founding documents set forth that our rights as humans pre-date the government of men, those rights cannot be abridged (at least easily). They come from God and are inalienable. Drive God out of the mix and rights will flow from government. Once that happens government will alter and abridge those rights because they can. Whether God exists or not he is necessary for the maintenance of freedom.

21. There is no such thing as the separation of church and state. That is a trick to intimidate people of faith. The founders feared a Church of the United States, not a manger scene outside the courthouse or red and green cookies in school. In using this canard as a tool to drive all God centered religion out of public life, the secular humanist actually establishes an official state religion. That religion is Atheism.

22. Rules of war: War is the only effective means for defeating evil.

23. In war there is no such thing as excessive force.

24. Using only the amount of force necessary to win, insures that you will lose.

25. The U.N. does not prevent war. It prevents war from working by stopping it before there is a definitive result. (see: Korea, Israel, Lebanon and Hezbollah) In doing so it invalidates the sacrifices of blood and treasure.

26. You cannot legalize gay marriage because there is no such thing. Its like legalizing the square wheel. There is no such thing as that either. Marriage as a concept was created so as to give a name to an arrangement between a man and woman that has the potential to create the lives of the next generation of citizens. If sex between a man and a woman didnt create the next generation of citizens there would be no need for a word to describe their relationship since civilization would have no interest in it. We would just hook up with each other and when we got bored move on. Gay activists understand this and it explains the headlong plunge into gay adoption as an attempt to legitimize the oxymoron, Gay Marriage.
