* ZELAYA'S voting fraud was set up and found by accident, while police were searching for $40 million stolen from the tax revenues by Zelaya right hand man.


The story neither the USA media, or the Miami Herald are telling, or the Europeans. ZELAYA had the referendum votes already counted in his favor, BEFORE a REFERENDUM even took place.

ORTEGA OF NICARAGUA IS MAKING HIS COPY CAT REFERENDUM SET UP AS WE WRITE THIS. This also lends credence that Chavez stole Venezuela referendums and elections complaints and also those by Morales in Bolivia and Correa in Ecuador. It is all a FRAUD for ALBA Presidents for Life Club of tyrants.

More corruption: The ballot counts are in!
Computers that already collected and tallied the votes

How can the ballots be counted, you ask, since the vote never took place?

¡No importa! as we say in Spanish.

Agents of the DNIC (criminal investigation) discovered ballots, computers, and certified vote counts in an office rented by Enrique Flores Lanza, member of Zelaya's mediating team who you may remember made a L. 40 million cash withdrawal from the central bank four days before the election was to occur. The count sheets neatly tallied the yes and no votes, the blank or disqualified votes, and the totals for various mesas (polling places).

You won't be surprised to learn that Zelaya's proposal won heartily with approximately 80% affirmative votes.

In fact, Zelaya's people should have probably used a little more discretion to make it believable. In one tally sheet that was reported, 'yes' votes totaled 450 while 'no' votes totaled only 30. Since a Gallup poll conducted from June 30 to July 4 reported that 63% of the respondents were against the fourth ballot box for a Constitutional Assembly, the fraudulent results should have been a bit more modest in favor of the cuarta urna.

Though this find was widely reported in the Honduran media, complete with reporters on the site of the investigation in process, here we are three days later and I'm willing to bet that you haven't heard about it yet from the media in your country.

Thanks to a reader, I found that Alberto de la Cruz of Babalú has already done my investigation work for me. He found only one one-sentence report in USA Today. You can read his report and a translation of the only detailed Spanish article that he was able to find. Since then, Lucianne and American Thinker have picked up the story.

Rick Moran at American Thinker wrote this:
It appears certain that the Honduran people narrowly avoided the prospect of a Chavez clone setting up shop as a dictator for life in their country. Only the courageous actions of their political, military, and judicial leaders avoided catastrophe.

I am ashamed of our president and government that they continue to support Zelaya at the expense of Honduran freedom. And I am ashamed of our media who obviously backed the wrong horse and are too arrogant to admit it.
Big surprise: Today at the 30th anniversary of the Sandista revolution celebration, Daniel Ortega, President of Nicaragua, put forth the idea of a Nicaraguan referendum "to have a better constitution".
How can Honduras get a fair shot if none of the major media outlets are reporting the facts. It is NOT acceptable to dismiss news by saying, "Oh, it's coming out of the Honduran media therefore it must be false."

Reporters, come down and find out for yourself, please! Our newspapers have political leanings just like all of yours. That doesn't mean that everything they report is false.

Even better would be if some countries would send their own investigators to follow along with Honduras' investigators and report on their findings. I have no doubt that Honduras' government would welcome that outside cooperation with open arms.

It's really frustrating to live in Honduras, and see the lack of interest of outsiders in the truth. Even more, the widespread acceptance of "News" snippets from such stalwart paragons of Truth as Chavez' own TV Company Telesur, which has been widely accepted and kindly re-broadcast by CNN and Reuters.

I've lived 14 years in Honduras. I'm proud of Honduras, and the way they've handled a serious, delicate situation.

We'll make it fine.

You are doing excellent work. I really appreciate this information and analysis.
But how many of us who trying to get more truth out are only reaching the few that already 'get it'? I spent all weeking thinking, what else can be done?
There is a food chain of participants that has grown organically. I see myself as someone who has mostly focused to identify audiences in the US that weren't listening but might (but am very disappointed in my progress) Is there any way that more discussion about approach and coordination can help?
I'm feeling like a grain of sand in a big ocean. Frustrated already, I admire the persistence of others. The Honduras people have no choice but to stay determined.
I'd be interested to discuss in direct messages, I am accessible on youtube.

Is there any way that Honduras can send these computers to an independent agency to prove that Honduras is not setting up Zeyala?

If I recall right didn't Colombia send the FARC computers to Interpol to verify they were authentic.

Your comment headline says "don't be shy". Well, you're all full of it... you quote garbage that has not one element of truth to it. If you really lived in Honduras, you wouldn't be backing the Neo-Nazi regime that kicked out the legitimate president of the country. Nothing, I repeat NOTHING, will change the fact that Evil is now in power in Honduras... so rant all you want rich white folks... support the Devil, you vile creatures.

This is the body of a letter I sent this morning to the Miami Herald. We have written our politicians about this. Maybe it is time to write our newspapers.

Why are we not seeing articles like this in the Miami Herald? This was printed, with pictures, in La Prensa. If a reliable newspaper like the Herald would publish articles like this, perhaps fewer people would believe the trash put out by CNN abd report the truth. Check out the other articles by this author, whom your Twitter Team already follows. Every word can be verified. It should be required reading by your reporter in Honduras. Maybe then she would start talking to people in Honduras, rather than parrotting the CNN/Telesur reporters.

I'm proud of Honduras, for actually enforcing its own constitution, an example my country (the USA) should take to heart - that's my guess as to why our moron-in-chief sided with Zelaya.

Even if the media isn't running the story, the news is getting out, slowly but surely.

One thing though, if someone could provide an accurate, non-computerized translation of the Honduran Constitution, as there is none available, it might help the cause.

I live most of the year on Roatan, HN and am currently in the US.....I am so ashamed of the American President...after all he is a lawyer and should look to the Honduran laws and constitution! I, for one, am e-mailing a synopsis of the events to all the US people in my address book!

To Mr. Hancock,
I am one of the supporters of this evil blog, as you say. It seems you didn´t even read the post. How do you explain having results for a voting process that never happened?
Please pull your head out of your a$$ for a minute and READ what it says.
As for CNN en Español, just let me remind everyone that they were the ones to kindly bring El Salvador their new leftist president.

Voting machines?! Hah! This comment shows how so many people have the wrong picture because they are comparing Honduras to the US. Voting machines in Honduras? Oh, please. Give me a break.

If you don't read Spanish, you are never going to know the whole story, but you can try one of the translating sites. They aren't always accurate but at least you'll understand a bit more.

These computers were to be used for tabulating the votes and were taken from a school. They were in an office near the Presidential Casa, rented by his Minister of the Presidency...the one who withdrew L.40 million IN CASH two days before the election.

I agree that it is so common to assume US standards. Even hard for me sometimes and I've lived in Honduras a few years now.

Why does information like this not really make the headlines outside of Honduras? Did it? This is the kind of information that can help people (internationally) to understand why Zelaya needed to be removed prior to the poll. And why, when things like this come out, along with the laundry list of charges and evidence against him, it doesn't make Zelaya stand down? Is the man so delusional or is he fearful of the repercussions from Chavez if he was to stand down? It's like he's damned if he does or damned if he doesn't so he figures he might as well go down fighting. Does that make sense?

I'm glad I have you to turn to for info LG, because I have been having a hard time wrapping my brain around this chess game lately. Part of me wants to tune it all out, but I know I shouldn't.
