This past May 20 the National Assembly deputy Ismael Garcia of Venezuela in Caracas made public a recording of a telephone conversation between a famous member of the Chavez Nomenklatura, Mario Silva, and Cuban Lieutenant Colonel Aramis Palacio from Castro’s State “Insecurity.”
In the recording Mario Silva details for the Cuban Colonel the maneuvers by which Diosdado Cabello, the President of the National Assembly of Venezuela and one of the strongmen of Chavezism, has fraudulently been enriched to the detriment of the Venezuelan state.
Also exposed in the conversation are the intense conflicts that exist in the Chavista leadership in sectors involving the armed forces of Venezuela. Mario Silva exposes all these things in detail for the purpose of informing the Castro regime higher ups in Havana, who we know have decisive power in Venezuela.
In Venezuela the scandal has been terrible. The corruption and Castro regime interference everyone imagined or suspected was confirmed by a personality who had the full confidence of the late Hugo Chavez.
For nine years Mario Silva has been the host of The Razor, Chavez’s favorite TV show, who “used to call him to give him some news,” or to help up to Silva in his work as destroyer of the credibility of outsiders. To each attack or complaint of the opposition, Chavez responded with a “Mario, continue investigating.”
That space, which began by criticizing private media coverage, became the arena where they lynched without mercy: victims included Miguel Henrique Otero, editor-president of the newspaper El Nacional, whom Silva called “bastard”; the former presidential candidate Henrique Capriles whom he called a “murderer” for the deaths that occurred after the announcement of close election results of April 14.
The deputy of the Venezuela National Assembly, Ismael García, made the recording public and requested an official investigation. So far this investigation has been rejected by all levels of government. A reaction that confirms they have much fear once the recording is authenticated forcing them to air the claims of Mario Silva.
The fact that after nine years Silva has just announced he will stop producing his famous TV show is sufficient proof of the veracity of his conversation with the Cuban henchman. This is the first chapter of the story. It was announced that new secrets will be made public.
Chavezism and Castroism have suffered another serious failure that will have grave consequences and further weaken the covenant of thieves that has allowed the looting of Venezuelan wealth, among other things, to maintain the bankrupt dictatorship in Cuba.
