The President of Venezuela Hugo Chavez was Murdered! With a New Biotechnology Biohazard Future Weapon a Biological Genetically Engineered Cancer and died 5 March 2013 (aged 58) Hugo Chavez WAS A PEACEFUL REVOLUTIONARY FOR THE PEOPLE: "Would it be so strange that they've invented the technology to spread cancer and we won't know about it for 50 years?" CIA was infecting rival leaders in Latin America with cancer. He said he found it an odd coincidence that major leaders south of the border, from Brazil’s Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva to Dilma Rousseff, his handpicked successor, to the president of Argentina, Cristina Kirchner, all got cancer around the same time. And now it was Chavez’s turn! Venezuela has the largest oil reserves in the world. I Now Always Research Anything I'm Not Sure About? After Watching Fox News.

"The Guardian" Cancer the secret weapon? The heart of the matter Monday, February 27, 2012 Charles Kong Soo US Senators Frank Church and John Tower examine a Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) poison dart gun that causes cancer and heart attacks, during the US Senate Select Committee’s investigation into the assassination plots on foreign leaders in 1975. It was a case destined for the X-Files and conspiracy theorists alike, when Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez speculated that the US might have developed a way to weaponise cancer, after several Latin American leaders were diagnosed with the disease. The list includes former Argentine president, Nestor Kirchner (colon cancer) Brazil’s president Dilma Rousseff (lymphoma cancer), her predecessor Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva (throat cancer), Chavez (undisclosed), former Cuban president Fidel Castro (stomach cancer) Bolivian president, Evo Morales (nasal cancer) and Paraguayan president Fernando Lugo (lymphoma cancer). What do they have in common besides canc ...
World leaders at Chavez funeral. World leaders were in Caracas for Hugo Chavez’s state funeral on Friday, following which the Venezuelan leader’s hand-picked successor, Nicolas Maduro, was to be sworn-in as interim president. Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who often referred to Chavez as his brother, was joined in the Venezuelan capital by Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff, her predecessor Luiz Inacio Lula daSilva and Cuban President Raul Castro. Chavez, 58, died on Tuesday at a military hospital in Caracas after a long battle with cancer. He had not been seen in public for three months after his fourth surgery in Cuba on Dec. 11. Now, more than two million people were hoping to see him, Communications Minister Ernesto Villegas said, as his body lies in state in an open casket at the Military Academy. Chavez’s body will be embalmed and publicly displayed in the military museum for at least sevendays, Maduro said, much like Vladimir Lenin and Mao Zedong, the Russian and Chinese communist rev ...

Memo To President Jonathan By Bayo Oluwasanmi The 2011 July 17th edition of America’s most influential and authoritative CBS weekly Sunday TV program “60 Minutes,” had a segment titled “Brazil’s rising star.” It was an inspiring and incredible story of profile in courage of Brazil’s President with 4th grade education, Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva who brought Brazil from extinction to existence. In disguise, the “60 Minutes” program is a timely unintended memo on leadership to Nigeria’s first president with a doctorate degree as he ploughs his way through the murky economic troubled waters of Nigeria. The story of the home boy president affectionately called Lula by Brazilians is a testament to the truth that it’s not the education we get, but the empowerment we give that makes a difference to others. Brazil is a huge country slightly larger than the continental US and covers nearly half of South America and the continent’s largest nation. A former Portuguese colony, Brazil declared in ...

In 2010 Energy Global states, “Brazil has announced plans to build US$ 880 billion of infrastructure between 2010 and 2016. President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva announced his new economic stimulus programme on Monday. The new plan, ‘Growth Acceleration Programme 2’ or PAC 2, emphasises increasing energy production and building two million new homes.” Also going on to state, “It is believed that some US$ 588 billion will be spent on energy projects. In oil and gas alone, investment should reach US$ 473 billion, and in electric energy generation, US$ 74 billion.” I would ay the United states has quite the investment in this country. As an Illinois Senator from 2004 to 2008, Obama states in the State of the Union, "We have subsidized oil companies for a century. That's long enough. It's time to end the taxpayer giveaways to an industry that's rarely been more profitable, and double-down on a clean energy industry that's never been more promising." Keep in mind, its time to end taxpayer giveaways a ...

" Why isn’t a candidate from the moderate left more popular in Mexico, a developing country struggling with high numbers of disenfranchised and a deep divide between rich and poor? Center-left moderates have been elected in Brazil, Peru, Argentina, Chile and El Salvador in recent years. Voters in those countries are increasingly inclined to believe economic growth can be fostered by reformist, activist politicians who are business-friendly but push for social programs to alleviate poverty and foster upward mobility. In Brazil, more than 20 million people climbed out of severe poverty during the two-term presidency of Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva — affectionately known just as “Lula” — and the country is now the eighth-largest global economy and the envy of Mexico’s political class." -The Washington Post
DID YOU KNOW: Brazil has the world’s second-largest black population after Nigeria?! Interest and cool fact indeed! Read this interesting article on how Brazil pledges to help in this regard: 07.05.2012 Brazil pledges investment fund for Africa By: LAURA BONILLA RIO DE JANEIRO – Brazil pledged major investment and technology transfer to Africa to repay a “solidarity debt” from a country with a huge black population to the poorest but resource-rich continent. “Brazil must begin to repay the solidarity debt we have with Africa,” Former President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva said in his first public address since he was diagnosed with larynx cancer in October. The world’s sixth-largest economy “owes its current strength to the more than 300 years of slavery during which we exploited the sweat and blood of millions of Africans”, he added. Lula gave major impetus to relations with Africa while he was in power from 2003 to 2010, making several trips to the continent and reminding his hosts there ...
