The full High Court decision can be read in English.

Earlier reports suggested opposition protests. Ahead of the Court's ruling, spokesman Ramon Jose Medina said delaying Chavez's swearing-in was a "violation of the law."

He requested an Organization of American States (OAS) opinion. It's a Washington-controlled front group. It's an instrument of regional imperial dominance. It has no legitimacy whatever. 

Democratic Unity (MUD) leader Henrique Capriles had second thoughts. On January 9, he accepted the Supreme Court decision as "binding."

He called on Vice President Nicolas Maduro "to assume the responsibility of office and govern." He'll decide later how to respond further.

Media scoundrels have other views. On January 9, Reuters headlined "Venezuela's sick Chavez misses own inauguration bash," saying:

He "remained on his sickbed in Cuba." Postponing an inauguration is "a first in Venezuelan history." It "laid bare the gravity of Chavez's condition after complications from a fourth cancer operation."

Reuters demeaned Maduro. It called him "a former bus driver who shares his boss' radical socialist views."

It said "opposition leaders are furious." They claim "Cuban-inspired manipulation of the constitution."

Chavez "has a cult-like appeal." He "pump(s) oil revenue into welfare projects." Opponents claim he "squandered" it on "misguided policies."

Foreign investors "hope for a more business-friendly" post-Chavez government. Reuters omitted saying Venezuela's private sector prospers under Chavez. 

It's grown faster than public sector initiatives. Before 2008's financial crisis, bankers profited hugely. They said they were "having a party." 

They're doing well again now. Chavez prioritizes lifting all boats. He's mainly concerned about helping those most disadvantaged. 

Venezuela is polar opposite America and European countries. Austerity is a dirty word. Social justice takes precedence. Right-wing ideologues want unchallenged wealth, power and privilege. Popular needs go begging. 

Venezuelans deplore social injustice. If asked, they'll contest for what's right. They're not about to sacrifice cherished benefits. They shame how political Washington treats Americans.
