Zelaya at the Honduran Border…vows to return.

posted at 4:15 pm on July 24, 2009 by

Deposed former Honduran strongman, Mel Zelaya has arrived at a Honduran border crossing hoping to be allowed to cross the border and return to power.

Zelaya has been a guest of Nicaragua for the past week, and has garnered the support of Nicaragua, Venezuela, and the United States in his efforts to regain control over Honduras.

Zelaya is scheduled to meet with unnamed US officials in Washington on 28 July.

This is a travesty.  Zelaya openly violated Honduran law in his effort to extend continuismo to Honduras once again and become president for life.  The Obama Administration was involved even before Zelaya was arrested by the Honduran military acting under orders from the Honduran congress and supreme court.  And now, the Obama Administration appears willing to put Zelaya backon the throne in Tegucigalpa…openly taking the side of Chavez and Ortega, both paragons of free and democratic republics and defenders of the rights of man and individual freedoms.

This is a travesty.

While Obama distracts us with inappropriate chosen words about the Cambridge police, and tries to force Obamacare down our sore throats…in tiny Honduras they are facing a complete sea change in over twenty years of Constitutional government.

This is a travesty.

Sometime this weekend, Zelaya with backing from Chavez’ Bolivarian “volunteers” will try to force his way back into Honduras…and the United States will say nothing.

The Jug-Eared One is a travesty.

Every good man and woman in America should speak out against this…well, travesty.

It seems that The Jug-Eared One can only speak in derogatory fashion about doctors, police, investors (speculators!), insurance industry workers, rich people, bankers, “greedy” people who have more than one medical test, and the list goes on…

…but he can’t find it in his Lightworking, Post-Partisan, Post-Racial, All-American Heart to denounce absolute monsters such as Ahmedinejad, Chavez, and this turd Zelaya.

Yes, this is damn well a travesty.

It’s a travesty that Ed and Allah are not paying closer attention to this travesty and posting more about it.

Keep up the good work ColdWarrior.

It is a travesty.

I never thought an American President would do such a thing.

Fausta is reporting

His little incursion lasted 30 minutes and it was a show for the media:

She links to the LA Times. (Her emphasis).

Ousted Honduran President Manuel Zelaya pushed through a crowd made up mostly of journalists and some supporters, lifted the chain that divides Nicaragua and Honduras, and stepped into his homeland Friday, nearly a month after he was deported in a coup.

He stepped back into Nicaragua 30 minutes later.

Yes, the same way the Obama & the Dems have been doing their blitzkrieg of government grab and Leftist policy, we should now be overwhelming them with all of their travesty.

Mark Steyn eviscerates:

By common consent, the most memorable moment of Barack Obama’s otherwise listless press conference on “health care” were his robust remarks on the “racist” incident involving Prof. Henry Louis Gates and the Cambridge police. The latter “acted stupidly,” pronounced the chief of state. The president of the United States may be reluctant to condemn Ayatollah Khamenei or Hugo Chávez or that guy in Honduras without examining all the nuances and footnotes, but sometimes there are outrages so heinous that even the famously nuanced must step up to the plate and speak truth to power. And thank God the leader of the free world had the guts to stand up and speak truth to municipal police sergeant James Crowley.

Great write up CW! Thanks! He’s at the border again this afternoon.

elduende on July 25, 2009 at 5:03 PM

Zelaya is camped out at the border, and has condemned Hillary Clinton’s remark that Zelaya is “reckless.”

The Obama Administration has cut off all military aid to Honduras…just ducky…and is looking to cutting off other aid as well unless Zelaya is fully reinstated…again, just ducky.

And, the Obama Administration is still calling this an “illegal coup.”

coldwarrior on July 25, 2009 at 10:01 PM

Thanks for the constant updates, coldwarrior. I guess I need to check back with you more often.

I was in the Honduras back in March. The poverty was quite disturbing, to say the least.

And since I was over in Europe, away from TV or media, I’m still not clear about what went on after the election in Iran. Got a place where I can get an quick tutorial?

Knucklehead on July 25, 2009 at 11:25 PM

Honduras prepares for the long haul…as the UN ponders intervention to restore former President Zelaya.

And, still, today, the major news outlets portray Zelaya’s removal as an “illegal coup.”

With this Obama Administration and MSM logic…next time you have a house guest and the guest decides to take over your checking account and your car, and you attempt to remove him from the house…be prepared to have him own it within hours.

And you will be either out on the street as the police show up to hand your guest the keys to your house and car…and give your former guest your dog, too…and your spouse…and kids. And you might go to jail…no trial, why bother? If the Obama Administration model is followed.

Honduras needs to either have Zelaya offed ASAP, prepare for a full-scale invasion, or both.
