MARIA CONCHITA ALONSO RESPONDS TO VENEZUELAN PRESIDENT
HUGO CHAVEZ’S CLOSING OF THE COUNTRY’S LONGEST AIRING
TV NETWORK WITH “TWO MINUTES OF HATE” MAY 1
AT THE LATINO COALITION ECONOMIC SUMMIT

Washington, D.C – The Latino Coalition has invited Maria Conchita Alonso to speak at its upcoming 2007 Small Business Economic Summit in Washington D.C. May 1-2 to respond to statements made by Hugo Chavez about the state of affairs in Venezuela, including his decision not to renew the license of Venezuela’s longest airing TV Network and the purchase of new high-tech weapons and surveillance systems from Russia.

Robert Deposada of the Coalition states, "The Coalition has a mandate to bring all sides to the arena and many stars, including Danny Glover, and according to Chavez, Oliver Stone, have shown public support for Hugo Chavez. We wanted to give Maria Conchita Alonso, a Venezuelan citizen, a forum to vocalize an opposing point of view."

Maria Conchita says, "I thank The Latino Coalition for giving me this opportunity, as last year I was campaigning in Venezuela against Chavez, but the situation there has further deteriorated and I feel it is no longer safe for me, so I have taken the fight to film and am producing a movie called, TWO MINUTES OF HATE, which shows in real footage how, at the 2002 march Chavez' assassins gunned down opposition protesters. Although Danny Glover and I did a film together, we have different points of view. I don’t think Sean Penn and Clint Eastwood, who work together, always share the same political views, although I do believe they express those views due to their caring and commitment. I respect all my fellow actors but I think I carry a more experiential voice, as I have already had to leave Cuba and Venezuela."

"The film, which I am co-producing with BOBBY producer, Edward Bass, will utilize actual clips of Chavez coming over the airwaves in his comical and yet cynical manner," says Maria Conchita. “The situation there has evolved to the point that Freedom House, a nongovernmental worldwide organization, ranks Venezuela second only to Cuba in terms of suppressing press freedom in the Americas,” she comments.

The writer, who wishes to remain anonymous but goes by the pseudonym of Jorge Tortoza, (in honor of one of the journalists assassinated by Chavez at the march) says, "This film is of course much different from BOBBY. In this case, the voice of the President is comical and yet frightening as he typifies a stereotypical dictator as in George Orwell's 1984. The script is being held under tight security. We want to make sure Chavez will not see it in its finished form until he goes to the movie theater like everyone else."

"Although many candidates and most probably George Bush will be at the event, I am not yet a US citizen and I am not endorsing any political figure,” says Maria. “However, a voice against Bush should not be a voice for Chavez. Sometimes, the public is just misled, for example in the case of Mao Tse Tung, in which both Richard Nixon and John Lennon were wearing Mao jackets while millions of artists and intellectuals were killed. Che Guevara, who has so many films immortalizing him, was afraid of motorcycles and was more of a homophobic than even Fidel Castro, and a professional assassin who loved his work, but is immortalized as if he were Gandhi."

She continues, "Chavez, however, is much more dangerous. He will easily pass Fidel on the Forbes list as he has all the oil money at his disposal. Venezuelan press, newspapers, radio stations and TV are being shut down, and we are heading in the direction of Cuba where soon people will not even be allowed Internet access, and the children will be “owned” by the government. I decided to go to The Latino Coalition especially after Barbara Walters' interview with Chavez. Barbara got back to me, but I did not succeed in convincing her to allow me an opportunity to give a factual rebuttal."

Edward Bass states, "Maria Conchita has never been a sell out. As the most famous Venezuelan actress, if she was a Chavista, she could be riding on the gravy train and receiving the multi-million dollar grants that many are receiving from him. Her courage, even with her life in jeopardy, is a profound example of bravery. She is using her celebrity status and artistic ability to fight for those whose voices are muffled, they are second class citizens in their own country. They can’t go to the same beaches, hotels or stores that the ruling elite and cash-rich foreigners visit.

Bass continues, "With Maria, our production and financing entity, after looking at dozens of Latino based material put this one at the top, as it is not the same old storyline. Although this is based in Venezuela, it's a love story and the backdrop is Venezuela as the sinking Titanic."

Deposada also says, "Although The Latino Coalition is not here to take sides, we take pride in our ability to confront the issues, and we extend the invitation to actors such as Sean Penn, Tim Robbins, Danny Glover or whomever, and want to offer them equal time or an invitation to debate Maria Conchita."

She concludes, “TWO MINUTES OF HATE” is far from a documentary. It is actually a beautiful story of two people in love, one from the Chavez camp, and one from the opposition, and we tried to give a fair and balanced view of the mistakes that were made in Venezuela that created the climate and void that allowed this dictator to enter the arena as Hitler did in the 30's."

The Latino Coalition is a non-profit, non-partisan organization based in Washington, D.C. TLC was established to address policy issues that directly affect the well being of Hispanics in the United States. TLC’s agenda is to develop and promote policies that will foster economic equivalency and enhance overall business, economic, and social development of Hispanics.

Communicatio in Sacris said...

Did Pope St. Pius X snort cocaine in the bathroom for exta energy to pray more (I read he learned this from Pope Leo XIII who endorsed Vin Mariani with a Gold Medal when Joseph Sarto was a Cardinal)? In fact, I also was told this by a SSPX Catholic priest named Fr. Scott, but now I am reading that Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre and Cardinal Castrillon Hoyos of Medellin, Colombia worked together on BIG COCAINE DEALS? I think that is why the SSPX has a lot of money and a lot of properties (Econe, Switzerland)? I heard that President Uribe's AUC helped them deliver the goods in a big Black Ship? Can anyone confirm that?

Did the FARC-EP benefit too? Or were they cut out of the deal? Do they really say the Latin Tridentine Mass by their Farc chaplains? I heard that the Chinese Communist Patriotic Church celebrates that old Latin Mass, and they help the FARC and ELN in their missions to Colombia? Not sure if they a Valid Latin Bishop for them? Br. Michael Dimond asked me this matter a long way back, I think he desires to rise to the honor of bishop, makes sense!

Also, it is widely known that there seems to be evidence of this from what I hear from a Bishop-Scholar Michael Carter that a Bishop in Miami, the Most Reverend Timothy Henneberry, OSA (Prior of La Iglesia Catolica Tradicional Nuestra Senora de los Dolores), helps the FARC/ELN Groups deliver the goods to (Cuban) churches he works with (also in the network are Bishop Martin, Bishop Fulham, Fr. Morrison, Fr. Bolduc, Fr. Brown, Fr. Collins, Fr. Cekada, etc)? Is this really true? I am not sure, but I am very suspicious from what I read, and I was told a lot about this from an Argentine Nun Sister Marie of the Trinity, anyone know about her resume? Hermana Mary de Trinidad said that she is the successor of La Popessa, and claims to know more than Dr. Bishop Malachi Martin as far as the Inside Scoop!


Wow - this story - now that would be a When Celebrity Endorsements Go Bad!!!

There is also a new book on the Cartels of "Communicatio in Sacris" from a Colombian-Venezuelan Scholar Dr. W. Detucci (I think from La Javierana in Bogota?)... here you can read more:

http://www.vladcatholic.com

I would appreciate anyone to share more information on this controversy. Maybe a book review on "Communicatio in Sacris," by Dr. Detucci.

As a Independent Roman Catholic Traditional Bishop, I try to stay out of the Narco-Politics of the Traditionalist Movement, I am simply asking all the same questions lingering in the air. Something is going on--that's for sure! Maybe my Liberal friends, Directors Oliver Stone and Michael Moore, will work with President Hugo Chavez to uncover the truth? But I also heard Traditionalist Director Mel Gibson is fighting them over Copyright Issues of a Documentary he is also working on concerning Traditionalism in Latin America...I heard though he is only working with President Alvaro Uribe (and that hurt Chavez's feelings).

We'll see, now won't we?

Aston Villa rode their luck at Hull City where an 88-minute own goal from Kamil Zayatte saw them leapfrog three points clear of Arsenal and into fourth place in the Premier League wow gold with a 1-0 win.

Villa had to survive Hull penalty wotlk gold appeals for a handball against Ashley Young in time added on, television replays showing that referee Steve Bennett wow gold correctly rejected the claims after consulting a linesman.

Bennett had been involved in controversy after just five minutes when American goalkeeper Brad Friedel looked to have handed Hull the initiative and threaten Villa's return to the Champions League qualifying wow gold zone.

Friedel spilled the ball under pressure from Nick Barmby and stand-in right-back Nigel Reo-Coker turned it into his own net as he attempted to wow gold clear.

But Bennett cut short wow gold celebrations at the KC Stadium -- and let Friedel off the hook -- when he ruled out the score for an wow wotlkapparent infringement by Barmby.

Zayatte's intervention from a Young cross bound for wow gold Gabriel Agbonlahor then saw Villa leapfrog Arsenal and draw level with Manchester United on 38 points -- seven adrift of leaders Liverpool and four wow gold behind Chelsea.

Stung by an on-pitch dressing down wow gold by manager Phil Brown at Manchester City last week, Hull showed five changes and a vastly improved performance.

Promoted Hull were looking for only their second win in 11 games while wow gold Villa arrived unbeaten in seven and it looked to be heading for a goalless draw when the home side suffered a cruel late blow.
