Heldigvis har vi bare gitt 14 millioner i "hjelp" til Venezuela under Chavez. Ironisk har 34% av pengene har gått til godt styresett.

CNN, December 13, 2011: During a recent visit to Guaicaipuro, a traditional market in Caracas, the Venezuelan capital, a fresh meat refrigerator sat empty at a grocery. Many consumers looking for beef, poultry or fish had to go home empty-handed. The produce section looked well stocked with plenty of fruits and vegetables. But consumers shopping at Guaicaipuro complained that prices, even for basic products, had skyrocketed - Food shortages worry Venezuelans

Ny drapsrekord i Venezuela ifølge observatører:

    BBC News, December 28, 2011: A Venezuelan campaign group says the country has suffered a record number of murders in 2011. The Venezuela Violence Observatory says at least 19,336 people have been killed this year, an average of 53 a day. The figures suggest Venezuela's murder rate is the highest in South America and four times that of Mexico. Criminal violence is set to be a major issue in next year's elections, when President Hugo Chavez is seeking another term in office - Venezuela sees 'record murder rate' in 2011

Chavez lufter ny konspirasjonsteori:

    Reuters, December 28, 2011: Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez speculated on Wednesday that the United States might have developed a way to give Latin American leaders cancer, after Argentina's Cristina Fernandez joined the list of presidents diagnosed with the disease. It was a typically controversial statement by Venezuela's socialist leader, who underwent surgery in June to remove a tumor from his pelvis. But he stressed that he was not making any accusations, just thinking aloud. "It would not be strange if they had developed the technology to induce cancer and nobody knew about it until now ... I don't know. I'm just reflecting," he said in a televised speech to troops at a military base. "But this is very, very, very strange ... it's a bit difficult to explain this, to reason it, including using the law of probabilities." Chavez, Fernandez, Paraguay's Fernando Lugo, Brazil's Dilma Rousseff and former Brazilian leader Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva have all been diagnosed recently with cancer. All of them are leftists - Venezuela's Chavez: did U.S. give Latin American leaders cancer?

Chavezjugend:

    Fox News Latino, February 1, 2012: It was a group of children, ages 3 to 7, celebrating Democracy Day in a Venezuelan school. They sang song of the revolution, pledged support for President Hugo Chavez and posed for photos. But what has sparked outrage in this South American country is how they were photographed: the baby-faced children were brandishing assault rifles, their faced covered in revolutionary scarves. Behind them was a mural of Jesus Christ armed with an AK-47. The shocking pictures were posted anonymously on Facebook and Twitter by a group in the slum town, La Piedrita of 23 de Enero, a stronghold of Chavez. "La Piedrita," a radical group west of Caracas, has said it would take up arms if anyone tried to remove the president from office. [...] Even Chavez sympathizers have reacted strongly - Children Posing with Assault Rifles to Support Chavez Sparks Outrage

Chávez stempler rivalen som gris

Opposisjonens presidentkandidat Henrique Capriles er en simpel gris, tordner Venezuelas president Hugo Chávez.

- Nå har vi taperen, velkommen! Vi vil pulverisere deg i valget den 7. oktober, sa Hugo Chávez torsdag om sin nye rival.

Presidenten, som nå stiller til gjenvalg for annen gang, hadde ikke mye godt å si om sin motstander.

- Du har grisehale, griseører, du snøfter som en gris, du er en simpel gris. Du er en gris, ikke prøv å legge skjul på det, sa Chávez.

Capriles har selv forsøkt å unngå skittkasting og konfrontasjoner og hevder han i stedet ønsker en mer forsonende tone i politikken.

Ifølge Chávez er han bare feig.

The Economist, February 18, 2012: Hugo Chávez, Venezuela’s president, held festivities to celebrate the anniversary of a failed coup attempt he led in 1992. He had busloads of public workers brought into Caracas for the occasion. Among them were high-ranking employees of PDVSA, the state oil company. That same day, a pipeline carrying pressurised oil fractured in the state of Monagas. The crude soared 25 metres (82 feet) into the air and flowed for a full day. Anywhere from 40,000-120,000 barrels poured into a river that supplies drinking and irrigation water. Some 550,000 people now lack water at home. [...] PDVSA has struggled under Mr Chávez. In 2002 its workers went on strike to try to force him from office. In response, he fired 18,000 PDVSA employees, including senior managers. He then stuffed the company with tens of thousands of loyalists from what would later become his United Socialist Party (PSUV). Since then oil output has stagnated, and accidents are on the rise - Spilling over: An oil spill bodes ill for the president’s re-election campaign

Foreign Policy, April 18, 2012: Tonight a small but enterprising Miami-based TV network, SoiTV, will air a revealing interview with former Venezuelan Supreme Court Justice Eladio Aponte Aponte, who has been under the protection of the U.S. DEA for several days. The authors of this article had access to the interview results. Judge Aponte Aponte is, so far, the highest official who has defected since Hugo Chávez came to power. His testimony presents a unique view into the criminal structure promoted by the current Venezuelan government. Aponte also names individuals who have committed serious violations of Venezuelan human rights and attacks on foreign interests - The judge who can convict Chávez

The Telegraph, April 28, 2012: Ever since he swept to power on a Left-wing, "anti-imperialist" ticket, it has been one of the bitterest points of contention between Hugo Chavez and his Norteamericano foes. Claims that Venezuela has deliberately turned a blind eye to the trafficking of vast quantities of US-bound cocaine have been furiously denied by the country's president, who insists it is just another Washington plot to discredit him. Now, though, backing for the US version of events has come from an unlikely, if arguably well-informed source - an alleged Venezuelan drug lord who claims that dozens of "top level" figures in the Chavez government, including ministers, generals and judges, were on his payroll - Trial of 'The Turk', one of the world's top drug lords, threatens to expose Chavez regime's involvement in cocaine trafficking

Oljerike Venezuela importerer drivstoff fra USA, og volumet er visstnok økende:

    El Universal, July 12, 2012: While Venezuelan oil exports from state-run holding Petróleos de Venezuela (Pdvsa) to the United States go downhill, a hike in the volume of gasoline bought from the United States has been recorded since December 2011. Data of the statistical arm of the US Department of Energy show that in December 2011, Venezuela imported one million barrels of finished gasoline from the United States. This accounts for approximately 11.3% of the total demand of the Venezuelan domestic market, nearing 8.79 million monthly barrels ending last year - Venezuela buys more US gasoline since 2011

Infosurhoy.com, August 9, 2012: Since its inception in November 2011, the Law of Regularization and Control of Home Leases has brought the rental market in this nation of 28 million to a halt. The law allows tenants to remain in rental units even if they stop paying rent. It also allows them to buy the property – even if they’ve been delinquent on rent – after 20 years of leasing. The law also sets rental prices at 3% to 5% of the value of the home, as it only takes into account the size and age of the unit – not its location. As a result, the price to rent a home in the most luxurious area of Caracas costs the same as it would to rent a unit of the same size and age in a low-income neighborhood - Venezuela: Law regulating leases wreaks havoc on housing market
