Venezuela Top Court Annuls Amnesty Law. The Venezuelan Supreme Court on Monday annulled an amnesty law seeking to liberate nearly 80 political prisoners, dealing the latest blow to the struggling opposition-controlled congress.
The amnesty aimed to liberate 77 politicians, students and military officers jailed by Mr. Maduro and Mr. Chavez as early as 2003 for allegedly inciting violence or committing treason, according to the human-rights group Penal Forum, which helped draft the bill.
Among the jailed politicians is prominent opposition leader, Leopoldo López, whose detention has drawn the ire of rights groups, the Organization of American States and the U.S. government, which has slapped sanctions on Venezuelan officials for alleged rights abuses.
What this means, is that the TSJ simply said no Amnesty Bill can ever be Constitutional, ratifying what I believe is the new Article #1 of the Venezuelan Constitution:
Article #1: All Bills approved by the opposition-controlled National Assembly are unconstitutional.

Country after country, where the demagogues of class warfare and “something for nothing” economics have sold their bill of goods to a frustrated electorate, has seen not only a drop in its standard of living, but in many instances peoples’ freedoms and lives destroyed.
