Both the referendum and the firing of the military chief have been declared illegal by the Honduran Supreme Court. Nonetheless, Mr. Zelaya intended yesterday to use ballots printed in Venezuela to conduct the vote anyway. - Hans Bader
Even the Cato Institute, which espouses antiwar positions and a dovish, liberal foreign policy, approved of Honduras’s removal of its oppressive ruler. Cato’s Juan Carlos Hidalgo notes that “the removal from office of Zelaya on Sunday by the armed forces is the result of his continuous attempts to promote a referendum that would allow for his reelection, a move that had been declared illegal by the Supreme Court and the Electoral Tribunal and condemned by the Honduran Congress and the attorney general. Unfortunately, the Honduran constitution does not provide an effective civilian mechanism for removing a president from office after repeated violations of the law, such as impeachment in the U.S. Constitution. Nonetheless, the armed forces acted under the order of the country’s Supreme Court, and the presidency has been hastily bestowed on a civilian figure — the president of Congress — as specified by the constitution.” - Hans Bader
Unsurprisingly, Mr. Zelaya is a big fan of Mr. Chavez. He has aped his hero in many ways, including aligning Honduras with the Marxist ‘Bolivarian Alternative for the Americas.’
He has also imitated Mr. Chavez in his rhetorical attacks on the United States, and his efforts to control Honduras’ private businesses.
Indeed, like Mr. Chavez, Mr. Zelaya has even sought to take over all the Honduran television and radio stations "to carry government information for two hours a day." A project that quickly failed. - commentary by Steve Gilbert of an AP report
Liberal Democrats used to be normal Americans before the Boomer Left rose to power. Hubert Humphrey and Harry Truman had a strong sense of American morality. They despised the Stalinist Left and fought to keep them out of the Democrat Party. They were sensitive to ordinary shame and guilt, the emotions that make us civilized. When Bob Dole asked "Where is the shame?" in the 1996 presidential election, the answer came out: Not in the modern Democrat Party. People without guilt or shame make merciless power mongers. - James Lewis, September 25, 2008 American Thinker
