It appears that many of us who have been wondering about the motives of many people defending and promoting communism, may have been paying attention to the wrong tropical island…
This may turn out to be an enormous story. It seems very much like the attempted coup against President Trump in some ways, and also like the supra-legal methods employed against France’s Le Pen and Italy’s Salvini, both of whom had their parliamentary immunity revoked RETROACTIVELY in order to charge them for major crimes that are in fact, not crimes at all.
In fact they are just acting within the job description of opposition MPs.
There will be more on this coming. But the takeaway is likely that unprecedented extraordinary means will be used against all political leaders who are working against the global communist revolution. Monday or so we hope to publish the reporter’s actual statement. But the gist of it is in the video below. Thank you Jose Atento for the video and translation.
This is an article by political blogger, Jose Atento, who is a watcher of all things in the Portuguese speaking world. In this case, the extraordinarily democratic words of Brazilian president, Jair Bolsonaro, and the threat he faces from other branches of the legislature.
Last time, I reported how the Brazilian Establishment was doing everything possible to overthrow Brazil’s president Jair Bolsonaro. At that time I mentioned the incident created by the early departure of Justice Minister Sergio Moro. Moro became a Brazilian national hero as the judge who led Operation Car Wash that put jailed powerful politicians and entrepreneurs, including former president Lula. Bolsonaro invited him to be his justice minster because Moro represented one of his causes: the fight against corruption.
Some pointed out that even though he was aligned with the fight against corruption, Moro was against some of Bolsonaro’s other positions. Contrary to Bolsonaro, Moro was in favor of abortion and in favor of disarming the population.
Let us jump to the present and the COVID-19 crisis. The Supreme Court, mostly composed of judges appointed during the 16 years of socialist rule, decided that the guidance, administration and control of how to tackle the pandemic was the responsibility of the state governors. One may argue that was correct, since public health is prerogative of states and municipalities, but, in practice, that made the federal government like the “Queen of England” whose only duty was to print money. Nonetheless, Bolsonaro made his opinion heard loud and clear, that, based on the Brazilian reality, where most of the population eat based on the money they make every day, the best approach would be a vertical lockdown of those in higher-risk groups (the elderly and those with health conditions); otherwise, the social consequences of the lockdown would be huge.
Some states, particularly those governed by the socialist Labour Party (PT) and the state of Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo, whose governors are pre-candidates for the 2022 presidential election, opted to force a full lockdown upon the population, calling it “social distancing.” Here comes the newspeak: everything was closed, and everyone told to stay at home, but it was not a lockdown. God knows what a lockdown would mean to them. At the same time, they began to bombard Bolsonaro with all sort of accusations, such as that he was anti-science, and the mainstream Brazilian media (that includes the newly created CNN-Brazil) blamed Bolsonaro for everything, even though his power had been removed by the Supreme Court.
Probably, the most outrageous of all was the way state and municipal police forces began to treat citizens who allegedly “disrespected social distancing” even if they were alone in an empty space. The brutality of a police-state became visible in videos that flooded social media (but not mainstream media) where working men, the elderly and women, even in bikinis, were brutally handcuffed and arrested. Meanwhile, governors are releasing criminals from jail, even drug-trafficking leaders and unrepentant rapists.
During this time of crisis, Justice Minister Moro resigned, claiming Bolsonaro was trying to interfere with the work of the Federal Police, even attempting to change some of its directors. Vague as this accusation was, as it is a constitutional prerogative of the president to appoint people to senior positions, the Establishment began to ask for Bolsonaro’s impeachment. Moro claimed that the content discussed during the last ministerial meeting would prove that. the Supreme Court opened an investigation based on Moro’s accusation, and requested the tape of the meeting.
Normally, Ministerial meetings are recorded, portions of them are kept, and the tape is destroyed. But in this case, Bolsonaro ordered the tape not to be destroyed, and handed the tape, unchanged, to the Supreme Court for analysis. To the surprise of many, one of the Supreme Court judges made the tape public last Thursday, just erasing the mention to one country, obviously China. This unprecedented action was an attempt to hurt Bolsonaro. It backfired.
The tape not only vindicated Bolsonaro against Moro’s accusations, but it was very good for Bolsonaro, as it showed him defending the positions that led to his election. It showed that Bolsonaro is the same person in public and in private. Indeed, character is what you do when no one is looking.
In the tape he complains to his ministers that he wants them to defend his positions: family, God, Brazil, guns, freedom of speech and the free market. And if any minister is not happy with that, they can leave the government.
Well, that is what Moro did a few days later, trying to create a crisis. He failed.
This tape is so powerful and so positive for Bolsonaro, that left-wing parties now are asking for its distribution to be censored.

There is a related article in the works which will be posted when ready.
Meanwhile, why can’t Canada, and for that matter, all democracies not elect someone who cares about the rights of the individual, and the limits to government the way Brazilian President, Jair Bolsonaro does?
Listening to this man is like listening to Thomas Jefferson if he had spent a few years in the Navy.
I am having this translation checked. But if it is accurate, I think from now on, Brazilian leader, Jair Bolsonaro, should be called:
The Salty Thomas Jefferson!
"Character is what you do when no one is looking."
Jair Bolsonaro goes off about Governors and Mayors having citizens arrested and says the obvious: A well armed people can't be enslaved by tyrants.

Above is a portrait of a man who loves and trusts his people. That despite the fact that a socialist stabbed him when he was campaigning for the job and nearly killed him and did damage his health for life.
Compare that to one Justin Trudeau that never actually accomplished anything at all during his life, and even the fake jobs he had was due to his lineage and connections, and how he approaches the rights and freedoms of the Canadian people.
Brazilian President Bolsonaro on December 18th explaining his views on the UN Migration Pact, or as it should be known, the destruction of the Nation-State suicide pact, and how this kind of immigration has impacted France.
Yesterday’s video on the official announcement of Brazil quitting the pact. President Bolsonaro really does travel at three times the speed of Trump!
Faster than the speed of Trump, Bolsonaro is making things right in Brazil.
BBC News: In a statement to diplomats, Bolsonaro government confirms exit of UN migration pact
In a telegram sent to missions abroad, Itamaraty [the Foreign Ministry] says that the country will not participate in the agreement signed in December and that it establishes guidelines for the reception of immigrants; for NGOs, the decision is ‘extremely regrettable’ and does not take into account the situation of Brazilians living abroad.
In a telegram issued on Tuesday (January 8), the Ministry of Foreign Affairs asked Brazilian diplomats to inform the United Nations that Brazil had left the Global Compact for Migration, which the country had joined in December, at the end of the Michel Temer government.
BBC News Brazil gained access to the document in which the Ministry requests the missions of Brazil at the UN and in Geneva to “inform, by note, respectively, the Secretary General of the United Nations and the Director General of the International Migration Organization, in addition to any other interlocutors considered relevant, that Brazil dissociates itself from the Global Compact for Safe, Ordained and Regular Migration.”
The document also says that Brazil should not “participate in any activity related to the pact or its implementation”.
Although requested, Itamaraty did not confirm the information until the publication of this report. However, diplomats told BBC News Brazil on condition of anonymity that the telegram is circulating within the Ministry system and reached the addressees.
In recent weeks President Jair Bolsonaro and Foreign Minister Ernesto Araújo had already announced on Twitter that the country would leave the pact. Araújo called it an “inadequate instrument to deal with the (migratory) problem,” arguing that “immigration should not be treated as a global issue, but rather according to the reality and sovereignty of each country.”
Human rights for migrants
Under negotiation since 2017, the pact established guidelines for the reception of immigrants. Among the points defined are the notion that countries should provide a coordinated response to migratory flows, that human rights guarantees should not be tied to nationalities, and that restrictions on immigration should be adopted as a last resort.
The document was channeled by about two-thirds of the 193 UN member states. Some powerful nations — in particular the USA, Italy, Australia and Israel, among others — opted out, evaluating that the pact violated state sovereignty.
Former Chancellor Aloysio Nunes Ferreira [of the Communist Party of Brazil — PCdoB], who represented Brazil in the negotiations, had already criticized the idea of ??abandoning the pact.
“The (migratory) question is rather a global issue: all regions of the world are affected by migratory flows, now as source, now as a transit place, now as a destination; hence the need for global responses,” he wrote on Twitter.
Aloysio also said that the pact does not “authorize indiscriminate migration” and “seeks only to serve as a reference for the ordering of migratory flows, without the slightest interference with the sovereign definition by each country of its migration policy.”
Conservative movements sympathetic to Bolsonaro’s candidacy were critical of the agreement.
In Brussels, a protest against the pact convened by far-right groups in December gathered around 5,000 people and ended in clashes between protesters and security forces.
Brazilian migrants abroad
For Camila Asano, coordinator of Foreign Policy of the NGO Conectas [funded by the Open Society Foundation], the abandonment of the agreement by Brazil is “extremely regrettable”.
“It shows that the government is not looking at all the people who need protection,” she said, noting that there are more Brazilian migrants living abroad than foreigners in Brazil.
According to Asano, in leaving the agreement, the Brazilian government does not consider the “many Brazilians who live in other countries and suffer from the denial of basic rights.”
She says the pact expresses a “very minimal, but still very valuable, consensus on what would be good practices for hosting flows.”
“Brazil is undermining one of its main international credentials: being a country made up of migrants and a migration policy seen as a reference, which has been giving Brazil a strong voice in international discussions on the issue,” she lamented.
Thank you Jose Atento
In addition to moving his country’s embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, Brazilian president-elect Jair Bolsonaro plans to shut down the Palestinian embassy in Brasilia.
“Is Palestine a country? Palestine is not a country, so there should be no embassy here,” said Bolsonaro recently. “You do not negotiate with terrorists.”
Bolsonaro won his national election on Sunday with 55.1 percent of the votes, according to the Supreme Electoral Tribunal.
He has stated that his first international trip as president will be to Israel. On Monday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu congratulated Bolsonaro on his electoral victory and invited him to Israel.
From our Brazilian correspondent at Vlad Tepes:
“The most incredible thing is that the “Embassy of Palestine” is a huge compound in the heart of Brasília, Brazil’s capital. No country should have a base there, not to mention the PLO!!!”
On map 2 you can see the Palestine Embassy, and underlined, the “Palácio do Planalto” (presidential office), “Praça dos Três Poderes” (where the two Houses of the Congresses are) and the “Supremo Tribunal Federal” (the Supreme Court).
What a wonderful and strategic location!!!!
The terrain was donated by President Lula in 2010, and heavily criticized as there is an Embassy Sector in Brasília where the embassies are located.
Thank you jose atento
