Honduran congressHere I am, lowly blogger, doing the job the Honduran media should be doing ? exposing the big fat lies of Honduras' elected representatives. [All links in Spanish unless otherwise noted.]On Monday I received a mea culpa sent out by the congress stating several things, the most amusing of which was that they will set up a committee to make sure that in the future they read the things they are approving before they approve them. Now there is a concept! They blamed approval of the... Read more

First day, after the afternoon dialogue

The meeting of the delegates and members of the Honduran governmentPhoto: El Heraldo, HondurasI so wish that the "dialogue" itself was televised. I think it would give Hondurans, as well as whatever small part of the world who is interested, great insight into what is really going on here, who are the ones looking out for the best interest of Honduras and who are looking out their their personal interests, as well as who is willing to negotiate. I watched an hour and half meeting with the... Read more

Guymuras is the ancient name for Honduras. Why agendas such as this are called 'accords' before anyone agrees to them, I do not know.Details of the agenda were not made available to the media, though the advance OAS member John Biehl, Insulza's right-hand man, has expressed much optimism about the...

Pro-government supporters, Choluteca,Honduras, July 1, 2009Photos: El HeraldoThe following is an article that I drafted by hand back in early June one day when we didn't have electricity.

Corrupto: "What a shame that this country doesn't have wheelsto carry it to Switzerland and deposit it in my name!Cartoon: Dario Benagas,La Prensa, HondurasAmnestyOne of the things that the San José Accord asks for is amnesty for political crimes of Zelaya and his cabinet and department heads and a delay to any criminal prosecutions until after January 2010. Do you know that Honduran politicians used to have immunity for any and all crimes' It took many years to get that changed so that all men... Read more

In an incredible article, Hondudiario reports that the Honduran political crisis is virtually over. The US State Department and the OAS have decided what the results of the upcoming "dialogue" will be.I have no idea if this is just someone's dream of what will happen or if they actually have good sources in the State Department, but I'll translate parts of it for you:*** The OAS mission admitted that the problem should be resolved within the framework of the Honduran laws and not supporting the...
