It's official: Honduran ousted prez planned on becoming a dictator

The Babalú blog has the story:

A Catalán newspaper is reporting that Honduran authorities have seized computers found in the Presidential Palace belonging to deposed president Mel Zelaya. Taking a page right out of the leftist dictator's handbook, these computers, according to the news report, contained the official and certified results of the illegal constitutional referendum Zelaya wanted to conduct that never took place. The results of this fraudulent vote was tilted heavily in Zelaya's favor, ensuring he could go ahead and illegally change the constitution so he could remain in power for as long as he wanted to. ACORN, I'm sure, is taking notes.

And Obama, the UN, the OAS, and Costa Rican prez/Nobel Peace Prize winner Oscar Arias all support this guy?? Do we always learn NOTHING from history, people? Will we forever be battling the corrupt forces of collectivism because, in times of plenty and ease, we think we can "deal" with people such as Zelaya ... and our bloated egos and complacency puts our own innocents at risk as a result?

And, where is the US media on this??

UPDATE: Powerline reports on Zelaya's nutjob pal, Venezuelan prez Hugo Chávez:

Now come Monica Showalter and her colleagues on the editorial board of Investor's Business Daily to report that on Thursday last week, "Chavez really lost it, making a bizarre, out-of-protocol 11:15 p.m. phone call to U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for Western Hemisphere Affairs Thomas Shannon urging the U.S. to 'do something,' suggesting a military invasion. Seems Chavez was losing sleep at night over Honduras." Chavez's night thoughts continue to trouble him:

[O]n his weekly variety show Sunday, Chavez made a long speech about his call to Shannon, hurling insults at the very country he wanted go to war for him. He blamed the U.S. for instigating the "coup" that removed Zelaya and maintained that the 600 U.S. troops stationed on Honduras' Palmerola military base had a role in it.

Chavez insisted that our Central Intelligence Agency, State Department and Pentagon all conspired behind President Obama's back to create the crisis. He demanded that Obama withdraw the U.S. troops, revoke the visas of Honduran officials and seize their assets. Then he threatened to foment a Honduran military revolt.

"Zelaya will return to his country. The government of Honduras will decide whether to kill him or not. He is willing to die," Chavez said, gladly giving up his pal's life for "the struggle."

As of Tuesday, Zelaya, acting on cue from his sponsor, was calling for violence and disruption of trade with strikes and roadblocks. "The Honduran people have the right to insurrection," he said.

I like that "conspired behind Obama's back" stuff. Can't diss a fellow radical lefty, eh Hugo? LOL!

One big lesson of history: leftists stick together in their pursuit of power, even if it involves supporting illegal and immoral actions.
