As reported at the UK Telegraph, Venezuela President Hugo Chavez is in the hospital in serious condition with kidney failure. Chavez has been battling cancer. PJ Media reports that the Chazez minions are denying the reports. Chavez’ peeps have denied many of the other illness and near death reports previously. Some have been accurate, some, not so much. Say tune …
The leftist, staunchly anti-US stalwart Chavez went into the Military Hospital in Caracas on Tuesday morning, the report on the newspaper’s website said, citing anonymous sources with knowledge of the case.
“He was in fairly serious overall condition,” a source told the Miami-based Spanish-language daily. “When he arrived, he was in quite serious shape and that is why he was brought in for emergency care.”
Venezuela’s Information Minister Andres Izarra appeared to deny the report in a posting on the micro-blogging website Twitter.

Al Qaeda Terrorist Cleric Anwar al-Awlaki Dead … Confirmed, the ‘FACEBOOK FRIEND FROM HELL’ Killed in Yemen
Al Qaeda terrorist cleric Anwar al-Awlaki won’t be down for breakfast. According to confirmed Yemen and US officials, the American born cleric al-Awlaki has been killed in Yemen. Anwar al-Awlaki has been linked to many terrorist attacks on the United States, including the Fort Hood Massacre, the attempted Christmas Day underwear bombing and the Times Square bomb plot. Al-Awlaki was killed about 5 miles from the Yemeni town of Khashef, east of the capital city of Sanaa.
The American-born radical cleric al-Qaeda Anwar al-Awlaki, a major jihadist figure who U.S. officials say inspired several terror plots against the U.S., was killed overnight in Yemen, U.S. and Yemeni officials told ABC News.
A senior U.S. official told ABC News the U.S. had been tracking al-Awlaki for some time and had just been waiting for the perfect moment to strike. A Yemeni official said al-Awlaki was killed along with an unknown number of al Qaeda confederates, possibly in a drone strike.
As we like to say … “Good riddance to bad rubbish”. The folks at Wizbang second the motion. As reported at the Jawa Report, it was first reported that Yemeni forces were responsible for the killing of the American born traitor terrorist al-Awlaki; however, it is looking more like a US drone attack.
Born in Las Cruces, New Mexico, al-Awlaki lived in the United State until the age of seven when his family returned to Yemen. Al-Awlaki returned to the United States in 1991 for college and remained until 2002.
It was during that time that as an imam in California and Virginia, al-Awlaki preached to and interacted with three of the September 11 hijackers, according to the 9/11 Commission Report. He publicly condemned the attack afterward.
Anwar al-Awlaki, American-born, a gifted Muslim preacher and savvy Internet operator, became a powerful al-Qaida tool for recruiting in the West, its English-speaking voice spreading a terrorist credo via a blog, social media posts and email exchanges.
UPDATE II: Jenifer Griffin from FOX News that it was a US missile that took him out; however, it is not confirmed what platform the missile came from, i.e. drone, aircraft, etc.
UPDATE III: WHAT??? CBS calls al-Qaida … al Qaeda’s franchise in Yemen. Does CBS News think that al-Qaida is like McDonald’s or Burger King … a franchise, ARE YOU SERIOUS!!! NEWSFLASH TO CBS … AL QAEDA IS A TERRORIST ORGANIZATION!!!
Anwar al-Awlaki, a U.S.-born radical Islamic preacher who rose to the highest level of al Qaeda’s franchise in Yemen, has been killed.
Democrat NC Gov. Perdue’s Office Said “Suspending Elections” was a Joke … Listen to Audio, Doen’t not Sound like a Joke
The other day it was reported that North Carolina Democrat Governor Bev Perdue stated that “elections should be suspended” for two years. Quickly her office put out the talking points that she was just making a joke and using hyperbole. Really? The Daily Caller has the audio of Perdue’s comment regarding the suspension of election. I guess that Perdue must work on her stand up comic delivery or at least provide a rim shot to emphasize the comedy.
Listen for yourself and you make the call.
“Listen to the Governor’s words: She wasn’t joking at all,” North Carolina GOP spokesman Rob Lockwood told The Daily Caller. “The congressional Democrats are wildly unpopular in North Carolina, so she may have been trying to invent a solution to save their jobs from public accountability.”
“If it was a joke, what was the set-up?,” Lockwood adds. “What was the punch-line? Where was the pause for laughter? It took them three hours to say it was a ‘joke,’ but when that flopped it became ‘hyperbole.’ We’ll just call it an unconstitutionally bad idea.”
When just 17% of the American people think that the country is headed in the right direction and Democrats are headed for another 2010 shellacking in the 2012 elections, I bet those in the “Donkey” party want the elections to be suspended.
EXIT QUESTION: If Democrats are willing to suspend the US Constitution for elections, what else are they willing to suspend it for? I wonder if Democrats would be asking for the suspension of elections if they thought they were predicted to remain in power?
Republican Presidential 2012 primary candidate Herman Cain says … African-Americans have been brainwashed into voting for Democrats. When a demographic supports the Democrat party with 95% of the vote, receives in return a record 17% unemployment and still unanimous supports the Democrat party … its hard to argue. Of course, had it been some other republican that made such a comment, they would have been branded as a racist.
The one African-American running for the GOP presidential nomination said Wednesday the black community was ‘brainwashed’ for traditionally siding with liberal politicians.
“African-Americans have been brainwashed into not being open minded, not even considering a conservative point of view,” Godfather’s Pizza executive Herman Cain said on CNN’s “The Situation Room” in an interview airing Wednesday between 5-7 p.m. ET. “I have received some of that same vitriol simply because I am running for the Republican nomination as a conservative. So it’s just brainwashing and people not being open minded, pure and simple.”
Weasel Zippers adds … replace “Jewish’ with “Blacks” and you have the same accurate statement. Agreed.
One has to wonder why Blacks put all of their eggs in one basket, in political terms it makes them irrelevant. You have one party that will not care to target them because they only receive 5% of the vote and you have another, in Democrats, that just take them for granted. At some point, even if its just to send a message to Democrats, blacks need to rethink their vote in order to be relevant. There is a reason why the Independent vote is courted … they are perceived to be open-minded.
