The Miami Herald reported Chavez died a few days earlier in Cuba.


The problem seems to lie in Nicolás Maduro’s illegitimacy. If the information conveyed by Cochez is true, Chávez died without swearing his oath of office, so Maduro could not have been appointed vice president. Therefore, he occupies that post fraudulently,

But Cabello actually in line for VP legitimately seems okay with it. BBC says a bit about him.

Rebelion is a good source for those who read Spanish: http://www.rebelion.org/

I'm not familiar with any authoritative, progressive media in Venezuela. Two papers I peruse for info on Latin America are La Jornada from Mexico City http://www.jornada.unam.mx/ultimas/ and Página 12 from Buenos Aires. http://www.pagina12.com.ar/diario/ultimas/index.html

Thanks Lagatta.


Timothy Wilson's blog reports that Cochez is not a reliable source regarding Chavez dying earlier.

A really interesting background on Chavez/Oil by Greg Palast. I had no idea Mrs. Heinz Ketchup was married to Senator Kerry.

It's old news to me. Kerry and Heinz also had $750,000.00 invested in the Alberta tar sands until he was forced to divest when he became Secretary of State. They're no progressives. Kerry will approve Keystone XL because he believes in the tar sands.

I don't think it's because he believes in tar sands BB. I think there will be huge accidental liability costs to Canada (leakage and shit). They just won't tell us what those costs are. But they'll be on us. Alberta is desperate.

This is an excellent site that also picks up progressive commentary from the likes of such sites as Counterpunch and Z Communications:
