ILEGITIMO E ILEGAL: La cédula de Maduro es falsa

por @DolarToday - Sep 12, 2013 @ 8:40 pm - en Noticias

Nuevas pruebas que soportan que el presidente de la República, Nicolás Maduro no tiene partida de nacimiento venezolana y de que su cédula es falsa, dio a conocer el día de ayer el diputado a la Asamblea Nacional e historiador, Walter Márquez, quien hizo un llamado a la vez a la desobediencia civil porque se está cometiendo un fraude constitucional.

Informó que al revisar los servicios de información del Saime, se encontró con que Nicolás Maduro sacó su cedula de identidad el 8 de julio de 1970, y aparece que tiene partida de nacimiento, la cual es fraudulento porque no se encontró este documento en ningún registro civil de Caracas.

“Por lo tanto la cédula de Nicolás Maduro fue hecha en fraude a la ley. Por eso es que no han presentado ni su partida de nacimiento ni los datos filiatorios, porque todo eso es violatorio de la ley, producto de un gravísimo fraude y es corrupción”,

Walter Márquez manifestó que con este hecho Maduro ha cometido varios delitos: el de corrupción en la obtención su nacionalidad y cédula de identidad y falsa atestación por haber afirmado ante funcionario público que su mamá nació en la ciudad de Rubio, cuando asentó el acta de defunción en el año 1994; siendo que su mamá nació en Cúcuta – Colombia.

De igual manera el parlamentario recordó que teniendo nacionalidad colombiana por ser hijo de madre colombiana, el Mandatario nacional no podía ser candidato ni mucho menos Presidente de la República, porque viola la Constitución de la República en su artículo 41 y 227 que señala que para ser electo y ejercer la Presidencia de la República se requiere ser venezolano de nacimiento y sin ninguna otra nacionalidad; pero Nicolás Maduro tiene nacionalidad colombiana y la consiguió viviendo en el barrio Carora de Cúcuta.

“Quien tiene partida de nacimiento tiene patria. La patria se obtiene para los que se naturalizan con la Gaceta Oficial y para los que nacen en el país con la partida de nacimiento. Nicolás Maduro como no tiene partida de nacimiento no tiene patria. Al no reconocer su patria Colombia, no tiene tampoco patria, por lo tanto es un apátrida”,

Márquez aseguró que los rectores del Consejo Nacional Electoral –CNE- que proclamaron a Maduro como presidente tienen responsabilidad civil y administrativa en este delito, por haberlo hecho sin comprobar su verdadera nacionalidad.

Informó que antes de Venezuela salir oficialmente de la Comisión Interamericana de los Derechos Humanos –Cidh-, junto con los abogados Nelson Ramírez Torres y Adolfo Márquez, enviaron la denuncia sobre la nacionalidad de Nicolás Maduro a esta institución internacional defensora de los derechos humanos.

“Estoy probando que Nicolás Maduro no tiene papeles venezolanos, ahora mi meta es probar que tiene papeles colombianos, porque él nació en Colombia y llegó a Venezuela pequeño, es mi convicción como parlamentario y como historiador”.

Al concluir el parlamentario venezolano afirmó
“O presenta su partida o prepara su partida”, finalizó.

Kenya says newly discovered aquifer could supply water for 70 years

Kenya's government says a huge water source has been discovered in the arid northern Turkana region that could supply the country for 70 years.

The confirmation of two aquifers is significant for the drought-hit region, Kenyan Environment Minister Judi Wakhungu said in a Twitter posting.

"This newly found wealth of water opens a door to a more prosperous future for the people of Turkana and the nation as a whole,"
she later told a meeting of the U.N. Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization.

Satellites and radar were used to find the aquifers in the Turkana Basin and the Lotikipi Basin, with test drilling confirming the presence of water beneath the arid earth, the BBC reported Wednesday.

Turkana, one of the hottest, driest and poorest parts of Kenya, suffered a drought last year that was particularly hard on the region's nomadic herders.

The aquifers are estimated to contain around 325 billion cubic yards of water; Kenya currently uses about 4 billion cubic yards a year, Wakhungu said.

"We must now work to further explore these resources responsibly and safeguard them for future generations," she said.

Amazon Deforestation Spikes In Brazil, According To Photos From Country's Space Agency

Reuters | Posted: 09/10/2013 6:09 pm EDT

By Paulo Prada

RIO DE JANEIRO, Sept 10 (Reuters) - 

Preliminary data released Tuesday by Brazil's space agency suggests Amazon deforestation spiked by more than a third during the past year, reversing a steady decline in destruction of the world's largest rainforest.

If substantiated by follow-up data typically compiled by the end of the year, the increase would confirm fears by scientists and environmental activists who warn that farming, mining and Amazon infrastructure projects, coupled with changes to Brazil's long-standing environmental policies, are reversing progress made against deforestation.

Last year, Amazon deforestation was shown to be at a record low.

The likely increase in deforestation has prompted concerns that Brazil may have let its guard down and provided an opening for loggers, ranchers and others eager to develop parts of a forest that is seven times the size of France.

Brazil's space agency, which tracks destruction of the rainforest using monthly satellite imagery, detected almost 2,766 square kilometers (1,067 square miles) of forest clearings from August 2012 through July 2013. The total area, more than twice the size of the city of Los Angeles, is 35 percent higher than the area cleared in the previous year, the agency said.

The measurement year ends in July, when visibility is best, because clouds often gather in the region much of the rest of the year, making satellite imagery difficult to collect.

A more complete tally for the period is compiled, using complementary satellite data and on-the-ground research provided by other government researchers. The additional data helps determine if clearings are the result of deliberate destruction or natural degradation caused by drought, wildfires or other factors.

Data compiled by Imazon, a private research institute, also points to an increase in deforestation over the past year. The group, the only other source of regular Amazon data considered reliable by many scientists, recently said destruction over the past year may have almost doubled. (Editing by Stacey Joyce)

Philippines mulls removing 'Chinese' blocks at shoal

by Staff Writers
Manila (AFP) Sept 10, 2013

Philippine officials are considering removing concrete blocks allegedly installed by China on a disputed shoal in the South China Sea, the Filipino navy chief said Tuesday.

Vice Admiral Jose Luis Alano said no further activity had been detected at Scarborough Shoal since the defence department accused China last week of laying 75 concrete blocks on an underwater section of the outcrop. The territory is claimed by both Manila and Beijing.

Discussions were under way about how to "address" the issue but the final decision on whether or not to remove the blocks rests with the Philippine government not the military, he said.

"That's being discussed as to how to (do it), but I do not like to preempt what will the decision (be)," said Alano, adding that the military continued to monitor activity at the shoal.

Filipino officials have warned that the block-laying could be a prelude to China building structures on the shoal, which lies just 220 kilometres (135 miles) off the main Philippine island of Luzon.

A Chinese foreign ministry spokesman last week denied that Beijing had laid concrete blocks on the outcrop, while asserting it was part of China's territory.

The shoal is about 650 kilometres from Hainan island, the nearest major Chinese land mass, but China claims most of the South China Sea including waters near the coasts of its neighbours.

Brunei, Malaysia, Taiwan and Vietnam also have competing claims to parts of the sea, and the rivalries have been a source of tension for decades.

The Philippines engaged China in a tense standoff at Scarborough Shoal in 2012.

Manila has said the Chinese had effectively taken control of it by stationing vessels there and preventing Filipino fishermen from entering the area.

In January the government asked a United Nations tribunal to rule on the validity of the Chinese claims to most of the sea.

China has rejected the move, saying it wants to solve the dispute through bilateral negotiations with concerned parties.

Analytic Guidance: The Syria Crisis


SEPTEMBER 12, 2013

Editor's note: Periodically, Stratfor publishes guidance produced for its analysis team and shares it with readers. This guidance sets the parameters used in our own ongoing examination and assessment of events surrounding Syria's use of chemical weapons as the crisis evolves into a confrontation between the United States and Russia. Given the importance we ascribe to this fast-evolving standoff, we believe it important that readers have access to this additional insight.

In the wake of President Barack Obama's change of tack from a strike on Syria, the threat of war has not dissolved. It has, however, been pushed off beyond this round of negotiations. 

The president's minimalist claims are in place, but they are under serious debate. There is no chance of an attack on chemical weapons stockpiles. Therefore, the attack, if any, will be on command and control and political targets. Obama has options on the table and there will be force in place for any contingency he selects. Nothing is locked in despite public statements and rhetoric in Washington, London, Paris or Moscow.

Remember that all public statements now are meant to obscure real plans and intentions. They are intended to shape the environment. Read them, but do not look at them as anything more than tactics.

The issue has morphed into a U.S.-Russian confrontation. Russia's goal is to be seen as an equal of the United States. It wins if it can be seen as a protagonist of the United States. If it can appear that Washington has refrained from an attack because of Russian maneuvers, Moscow's weight increases dramatically. This is particularly the case along Russia's periphery, where doubts of American power abound and concern over Russian power abides.

This is not merely appearance. After all that has been said, if the United States buys into some Russian framework, it will not be seen as a triumph of diplomacy; it will be seen as the United States lacking the will to act and being pushed away out of concern for the Russians.

The Russian ploy on weapons controls was followed by the brilliant move of abandoning strike options.

 Obama's speech the night of Sept. 10 was addressed to the U.S. public and Obama's highly fractured base; some of his support base opposes and some -- a particular audience -- demands action.

He cannot let Syria become the focus of his presidency, and he must be careful that the Russians do not lay a trap for him. He is not sure what that trap might look like, and that's what is unnerving him as it would any president. Consequently, he has bought time, using the current American distaste for military action in the Middle East. But he is aware that this week's dislike of war can turn into next week's contempt on charges of weakness. Obama is an outstanding politician and he knows he is in quicksand.

The Russians have now launched a diplomatic offensive that emphasizes to both the Arabs in the Persian Gulf opposing Bashar al Assad and the Iranians supporting him that a solution is available through them. It requires only that they ask the Americans to abandon plans for action. The message is that Russia will solve the chemical weapons problem, and implicitly, collaborate with them to negotiate a settlement.

Obama's speech on Sept. 10, constrained by domestic opinion, came across as unwilling to confront the Russians or al Assad. The Russians are hoping this has unnerved al Assad's opponents sufficiently to cause them to use the Russians as their interlocutors. If this fails the Russians have lost nothing. They can say they were statesmen. If it succeeds, they can actually nudge the regional balance of power.

The weakness of the Russian position is that it has no real weight. The limit on American military action is purely domestic politics. If the United States chooses to hit Syria, Russia can do nothing about it and will be made to look weak, the tables thus turned on them.

At this point, all signs indicate that the domestic considerations dominate U.S. decision-making.

 If the Russian initiative begins to work, however, Obama will be forced to consider the consequences and will likely act. The Arabs suspect this and therefore will encourage the Russians, hoping to force the U.S. into action.

The idea that this imbroglio will somehow disappear is certainly one that Obama is considering. 

But the Russians will not want that to happen. 

They do not want to let Obama off the hook and their view is that he will not act. 

Against this backdrop, they can appear to be the nemesis of the United States, its equal in power and its superior in cunning and diplomacy.

This is the game to watch. It is not ending but still very much evolving.
