Communism is growing fast in Latin America disguised in Socialism and Populism. It is a major threat to the Democracy in the Region, and a Clash against North Americans Allies.Will The United States adhere to this New Political Wave and support the Region?
Much is said about the achievements of Lula da Silva of the Brazilian economy. Lula da Silva a left wing with origins in communism. You Young, or Alienated Voter, search on "Russian Revolution of 1917" that my words will have guarantors. Millions were killed not in combat, but was killed for being against of it, that was enough to be found guilt and sent to be shot. The former USSR (Russia) tried to dominate the world by deploying its socialist ideas only as a disguise. Dominated country where implemented communism (except for Tito's Yugoslavia and China - Tito of Yugoslavia was unbeatable in its mountains, nor Hitler could dominate. Hitler compensated by getting around that little country). The Russians dominated half of Europe with torture and murder for those who were against the regime. The atrocities committed by the Brazilian Military dictatorship certainly look like a fairy tale in comparison to the Russian Revolution. You young, or alienated, search on "iron curtain" so my words have guarantors.
Who prevented the world domination by the USSR after the World War II were the Americans.
1 - Anti-Americanism: (A)-When the Americans dominated Japan in response to the attack on American territory (there was a claim to future Japanese landing in California). The so-called "American imperialism" only helped Japan to quickly become the second largest economy in the world (today there are American bases in Japan).
(B)-When the Americans dominated Germany in response to Hitler's claim to rule the world; the so-called "American imperialism" only helped Germany to quickly become the third largest economy in the world (today there are American bases in Germany.
You Young, or Alienated, search on "World War II" or "second great war "that my words have guarantors.
2 - COLD WAR, MILITARY DICTATORSHIP IN BRAZIL AND GEOPOLITICS:
Recently much has been published about the military dictatorship in Brazil, and in fact isolating *Tupiniquins eyes wide ( see notes). The reality was different at the time, the superpowers tried to spread their domains. Clashes occurred between right and left in the world, causing wars and civil libertarians or the third world: Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Angola, Mozambique, El Salvador, Nicaragua ... Was carried on a dirty war. Dictatorships of left and right were committing atrocities. Take the case of Cambodia, mutatis mutandis, was the bloodiest dictatorship in the world (and it was left!). I've seen many people refer to the "COLD WAR", is a state of tension between U.S. and USSR at the time. Wrong! American and Russian forces clashed not directly, but there were "hot war" yes sir! Brazilian blood was shed, without which many of our cultural elite admit the overall context of the fact. The Young-You, or alienated, research about the events that occurred in the world while the military dictatorship was in power, "the Vietnam War," "war in Laos," "war in Cambodia,"... Angola, Mozambique, El Salvador, Nicaragua. Guerrillas in Colombia, Bolivia, Venezuela. Do a search on dictatorships in Chile, Argentina, and Uruguay, to ensure that my words have truth on it.
The Brazilian dictatorship was part of a global context to prevent Soviet domination (which would be under an iron hand worse than the Brazilian dictatorship). There was a war called "cold war" going on, in reality was a world war, where Russians and Americans have faced. The populations of third world nations lined up part for the Russian cause and party favors to the American cause.
The Revolution in 64 (where the Military dictatorship began) was just after a revolt by sailors in Rio de Janeiro (supportive and encouraged by communist agents).Investment in the field have stopped around 1956 and in 1963 was a "socialist revolution" for granted and farms were sold for a quarter of the value, for sure via a guerrilla or even seizure of power and the expropriation of land by the Communists. Brazil was a rural country with its economy based 80% on the field, and the race for dollars and buying U.S. dollars at any price (to leave the country) did to trigger inflation. The people had no money for anything. At that time, one of the first actions of the military government was to implement the new currency "Cruzeiro" and try to strengthen the currency. There was no money to import wheat (at the time was almost 100% imported) and wheat was rationed, cassava was added to wheat to alleviate a lack of popular Brazilian Bread. The support of the population it was virtually unanimous in the initial phase of dictatorship.
"DAY OF MARCH 31, 1964," I SAW, I WAS THERE, largest sugar mill in the world, I was only nine years old: The bells rang! We met, to comment on the matter. People cheered! There was popular support! The Refinery Paulista SA, Usina Tamayo, had around 5,000 residents between employees and their families. Something likes Terra Nostra, a soap of the Globo network, only 50 times larger. At the time, nothing more or less, was the largest sugar mill in the world! The refinery owned line trains and stations, for internal services. That's right, a normal train circulated internally! The section where I lived also lived about 350 other families. I remember "decals" from" the broom" symbol of Janio Quadros campaign (he preached with his broom, that almost everyone had at home placed somewhere, he promised to end corruption in Brazil!!!). Then His resignation after less than seven months on the presidency ends the people's belief in politicians.
Janio Quadros then began having strange attitudes, communicated with his ministers for medium by leftist, banned the use of bikinis in beauty pageants, banned cock fight; tried to put regulations to home card games. Attempting a rapprochement with the communist countries, Janio received and gave to Ernesto Che Guevara the Order of the Cross Sur (Southern Cross), the highest honorary distinction of the Brazilian government. But that political independence was not well accepted by the right wing, which supported the Janio at his election, and neither by the United States.
In turn, the inner attitudes of conservative nature were not accepted by the left and also the repression of peasant and urban popular movements. His economic policy austerity without adjustment of wages and restricting credit displeased everyone. Thus Quadros was with no support.
Carlos Lacerda, governor of the defunct state of Guanabara (formed by the city of Rio de Janeiro (city) | Rio de Janeiro]], then this ceased to be the federal capital of Brazil]]) who had supported the Janio, began to oppose him. In a proclamation of 24 August]] 1961, Lacerda denounced what he called a plan Janio to "try a coup d'état" and become dictator]]. The next day, August 25, Quadros announced his resignation, which was readily accepted by the Brazilian National Congress. It is thought that Quadros wished that Congress did not accept his resignation, and gave him special powers to rule the country, which would constitute a "self-coup".
In a move designed to give Him more power, He resigned the presidency on August 25, 1961, with the idea of returning to power by popular acclamation, but said the idea was rejected by the Congress, who called in to replace his office to Vice President and Leftist Joao Goulart.
The dictator President Getulio Vargas was much revered among the farmers than any other president. It was hoped the military would make a new "Vargas" era. The successor of Quadros, President Jango (Joao Goulart) had no political support, barely heard about it. I read about it much later, I infer that he fell like a balloon without air - politics makes backups and coalitions and Jango didn't have on it.
The military occupied the power vacuum created by the resignation of Quadros. Jango, I swear! He appears only in history books, but not much is said, except that he left Brazil as an exile to Uruguay and dressed as woman along with his brother in law Leonel Brizolla, another high figure politician which was educated and affiliated with the communist party in USSR!
Around 1968, coincident with the recessive economic policy of the military, the world had problems. Here, the population was watching the protests in Paris, but not related to the French social-political moment - the loss of colonies, such as Vietnam and Algeria - where the population and the military considered a traitor De Gaulle.
Here, in this era, the military began to lose support from middle class (the Americans were spending too much in Vietnam and there was a global financial crisis). And You Young, or alienated voter, don't know much about these facts because our History books don't mention much about the Revolution of 1964. Do a search on "years before the coup of 64 or 64 reasons for the coup" so that my words have credit.
GEOPOLITICS TODAY: Lula da Silva and his team are keen to get closer to Iran, Venezuela, Russia and China, A clearly anti-American policy. It is true that Americans are losing economic importance in the world .But keep in mind the only truth is that Americans are still by far the largest military power in the world. Americans will not accept the siege that Lula da Silva is trying to set up. Not even Russia and especially China are as anti-American as Brazil is showing to be. Russia fears the giant Chinese on its borders and China for having in its main market with the United States. Israel increasingly surrounded by powerful enemies (the American people support Israel). And the enemies of Israel promised to take Israel off the map (concentration camps never existed). In 1947 the UN deployed the state of Israel (where they lived for over 2000 years ago these people who for lack of territory spread across world). Israel did not settled there, soon after Israel was settled, it was attacked several times by the union of neighboring countries. In those wars Israel began to expanding their territory by strategy. Israel is so small that it has not enough land to train its military and air force. The Palestinians who are living in the territory that the UN gave Israel, feels threatened in their own land and it is undeniably that the Palestinians should have their own country as well. A major attack on Israel is imminent, the American people support Israel and preemptive any strike against Israel.
GEOPOLITICS LATIN AMERICA:
The same bag of money which elected Cristina Kirchner in Argentina (search and follow the bag of money that was sent from Hugo Chaves to elect Cristina Kirchner), was sent to the rest of Latin America. A bag of money was apprehended in Argentina and there was no denying of it. Many other bags were sent across Latin America to elect, Morales, Correa, Ortega and others.
Where was the origin of the "Brazilian Mensalão" or Congress receiving a monthly allowance? The never investigated scheme to elect Lula da Silva and culminated with the death of Mayor of Santo Andre Celso Daniel (search before all disappear from the Internet, remains - Search also for "blogspot.com" which is an American blogs website and just to because is hosted outside of Brazil has not yet been taken down. The blog is maintained by Celso's family and friends. The Scheme was witnessed by the mayor. The family claims he was executed because he was against it and would betray a huge embezzlement of municipal governments controlled by PT- to elect Lula da Silva. Most of the news published in Brazil has erased their websites and already disappeared from the Internet meetings of leaders of the FARC, listed in Ribeirão Preto with Palocci, President Lula's ex -Finance Minister who had to step down because of corruption .and meetings in the South of Brazil with Tarso Genro, another mainly figure in the political arena. You might find these archives in the major newspapers, but no guarantees'. Besides the municipalities schemes, these leaders of the FARC (which everyone knows are financed by drug trafficking and Chaves) came to do what in these meetings in recent years before Lula da Silva was elected?
The American people require a response, ex president George Bush is already on his high popularity. President Obama will have to show a lot of services to be reelected. Many American presidents go to wars to meet the popular clamor. For the first time in decades there are heavy patrols in the border with Mexico. The patrol is no longer exclusive to the state police and federal police Border Patrol, but also by American Citizens' who are afraid of a flood invasion of radicals Muslins, and people running from poverty to live in the United States. The people demand an answer. The population knows it all starts with the governments of several Latin American countries that support drug trafficking and guerillas. The Mexican government, as well as Eritrea and Somalia lost control. The Mexican government no longer controls the country. Mexican guerrillas are already acting in 'American territory Read the News so you can take your own conclusions.
THE FHC GOVERNMENT AND ITS RECENT YEARS:
FHC consolidated and created the currency Real when he was the minister of economy of President Itamar. A weak currency, a country in debt to the IMF and banks around the world and without foreign exchange reserves; how to build a coin on these facts?
A strong currency would be the only way for the country to grow, organize, have credibility- Many have tried and failed ( do a Google plans Sarney, Bresser, Collor and many others). Privatization was a way to capitalize and defend currency. Much money was spent defending the real, paying debts on time, because a moratorium (default) the break-Real. Cardoso's second term was marked by growth of the opponent PT (Labor Party) and in its Charter advocated the expropriation of land, the defaulted debts to the IMF and banks. The more Lula da Silva grew up in the polls less foreign investment was coming in and more were spent defending the FHC Real. Without foreign money coming in and burning the reserves achieved by privatization Cardoso defended the Real. FHC's second term almost nothing could be done by the fear we had of the Lula by international and national entrepreneurs. Many entrepreneurs sent their investments out of the country. At the beginning of his second term, a sharp devaluation of the currency caused by international financial crises (Mexico, Russia and Asia) will take Brazil to a severe financial crisis that, to be controlled, resulted in an increase in interest rates, which led to higher real interest in its history and a huge increase in the intern debt. Still FHC initiated the social welfare program Bolsa Escola (school grant) and other social welfare programs that later Lula da Silva gave the sequence with other names (remember FHC that these programs began shyly, as there was cash on hand).
LULA DA SILVA GOVERNMENT: Lula's administration started giving economic policy segment of the previous government, FHC. International capital was in "disarray" at the time. For this purpose, appointed Henrique Meirelles, a federal deputy elected by the PSDB of Goiás in 2002, in the direction of the Central Bank of Brazil, giving a strong signal to the market - particularly the International in that Meirelles is well known for being the president of Bank Boston - that there would be no sudden changes in economic policy under President Lula. He defended the Real, paid the debts with the IMF and foreign banks on time. The charter used in the PT campaign in all attempts to Lula da Silva to take power was a bluff to flock the foreign capital and domestic capital as well, leaving the Cardoso second term government in difficulties. After the first year praying on Lula's charter FHC saw the foreign capital (and national) began return. The PT made a used the same terrorism that toppled Brazil between 1956 and 1964 and culminated with the revolution of 64. The PT (Labor Party) knew that President Clinton would not support a military intervention. The president whose policies has sunk the U.S. causing President Bush to a disastrous government), knew about the attrition between the military and the population. Lula da Silva Cardoso prayed on FHC charter, and Lula reaped the fruits planted by the president before. Much has been harvested by Lula da Silva who took the fame of which was planted by FHC. The Lula da Silva did not have a ghost of a leftist government threatening to take power at any time and confiscate the large estates and to default international debts. Lula da Silva, his team and his PT party is great bait.
WHAT WAS THE GOVERNMENT OF LULA DA SILVA?
It was initiated with the "Mensalão Corrupting-parliamentary (monthly allowance and money inside his underwear). Followed by the ministers of the supreme Ellen Gracie and Gilmar Mendes almost systematically voted against Lula da Silva until their party was attacked one night on the yellow line in Rio de Janeiro. The ministers spoke little details of this attack, but started voting consistently in favor of Lula da Silva since. What made the ministers change their votes? Their personal belongings, papers, notebooks, mobile phones were taken.
Attenuate: What other way to govern with the corrupt politicians and corrupt judges who are the majority?
Aggravated: Search for the votes of Ellen Gracie before the fact. Her votes were consistent. No reason to suspect a corrupt minister. About minister Mendes, Lula planted speculation, but never pointed an evidential fact.
Mitigating factors: It is better to have a supreme minister under control then have to present facts and evidences.
The successor Rousseff: Marina Silva, former ministers of Lula da Silva (former colleagues of Ms. Rousseff) asked not to vote for Mrs. Rousseff. Marina Silva was treated to the cries (you can dismiss someone with respect), and humiliated by Rousseff. It is proven that Rousseff is anti-American and scatterbrained Terrorist. She will take the continent to war against the U.S. in January or February in a short period of two years. If you search today on "Rousseff terrorist will find a majority of stories planted by PT where she was a heroine of the armed struggle against the military dictatorship (insisting only in research will find facts, details of their actions). Nothing will appear later that year Russia itself has abandoned communism, nothing will find that Russia has controlled the country where communism was introduced. It was a struggle against military dictatorship, there was a struggle to implement communism, and was already well rehearsed before the coup of 1964.
She speaks and give speeches of torture suffered during her arrest, but does not say that out of their deaths is that of a young soldier a headquarters in Osasco, aged 18 and had finished recruiting (barely knew how to use a weapon). The soldier named Kosel left mother, father and family. His body was shattered by a bomb. Do a search for "Rousseff Kosel" there is still a few sites in Portuguese about the attack on the barracks of the Second-Army in Brazil. Her past, according to those who worked beside her, said that she is a scatterbrained. This is a serious mental defect for a candidate to occupy the job as presidency of the republic of Brazil. She is anti-American and along the crazy Chaves will also scatterbrained the continent into a war.
Even economically shacked, the Americans have four times the military power in comparison to China. Americans have a new system of arms that make a nuclear bomb to be like like a toy (it can cause large devastation and does not contaminate the areas).
For those who think this a conspiracy theory: There are miles of Alaska gigantic antennas and without any explanation (there is a missile defense system in Alaska that has nothing to do with these dishes). Also bulky of antennas in Russia have begun to emerge without explanation. A designated successor pointed by Rousseff - Rousseff to start his campaign has indicated as her successor and her faithful squire Erenice Guerra. She was Rousseff right arm and was as indicated by Rousseff to be her successor as chief minister of Chief of Staff. Erenice Guerra was fired (resigned) immediately after taking office, as were various shenanigans involving her name. Erenice Guerra son sold confidential information to a business consulting firm (EDRB Campinas SP) for R$ 40,000.00 per month along with a contract and rights to information. Euricélio-José Alves de Carvalho, brother of former Minister Erenice Guerra, was dismissed on Thursday (09/16/2010) from the Urbanization Company of New Capital (Novacap) at the request of Federal District government. Gov. Roger Rosso (PMDB) also ruled on Thursday afternoon to the Federal District Realty Company (Terracap) the resignation of Israel Dourado Guerra, son of Erenice Guerra. Soon after the appointment of his mother as Minister as Chief of Staff, he began to put pressure on the release of money for some companies with institutions like the BNDS. Under the influence of the son whom never had any post in the government, the minister Erenice Guerra signed several millionaire contracts. Search "Erenice Guerra resignation." Most of what you will find is the resignation letter explaining that it is resigned to the case is discharged, but continues to search that will find the scandals. 1
FREE PRESS: As every communist government source, the group that took power in Brazil wants to restrict the press. The USSR and all countries dominated by it (half of Europe and Cuba) have imposed severe restrictions on the press. Some has been jailed and even sent to death sentence for oppose to it. Cuba, North Korea, China arrest and torture journalists and who is against Hugo Chavez speak hours per day on all channels. He shuts down newspapers and radios and television station who oppose his government. He sends militias to beating journalists and who are against his government-in the streets of Venezuela.
With the exception of China, every country that imposed restrictions on the press failed. Corruption dominates without a free a diverse and free press. USSR and the whole Iron Curtain collapsed. Cuba, North Korea.
EDUCATION IS THE ONLY ALTERNATIVE TO DEMOCRACY: The tribal population, almost all of us Brazilians (and Hispanic) had parents, grandparents, great grandparents, and great grandfathers living in a tribe; Amerindians, Arabs and wild diversity. Population where theft, pillage and massacre or enslavement of the enemy (read: different) were normal practice. In general our society accepts the practices cited, is that political candidate from Sao Paulo that "steals, but does work," whether in land takeovers, or in the recent defense that the public and the press made in favor of the servant who stole a can of beans and an onion. In the latter case, almost all of the editorial press, reporters and emphatic popular defended the thesis that it was absurd that someone be arrested for. No matter if the theft has persisted and persisted or who was the legitimate owner. Savages we are, without morality, education, and discernment. Look at the politics we choose! "And because of them, and to ourselves, under the democracy only we "skate" for years and years. Some advances in the military regime, corruption under Sarney, implosion under Collor, Cardoso and advances in risk of falling under the mantle of populist following (I wrote this piece in 1998/1999). The majority of politicians elected by this people hardly will provide good results. Politician who is guided by opinion polls (polls that heard the ignorant and wild) during the deciding moments who follows the savage people is not a democrat but a populist, which is very dangerous. In the (domestic) servant case there was still the home of breach of trust because was not a stranger who stole it, but one that usually (paid as much as possible and often with difficulty) is the responsibility of our house and our children. In breach of trust there was a greater immorality than the theft itself: Immoral and wild we are! We love women who give blow of a pregnancy on international rockers, we pound and kill opponents' supporters of football teams, we commit assaults, kidnappings, robbing and betrays.... We are Brazilians! It is going to get worst. Take a look on the following theory - is the banality of liberal theory of the left, the remains of communist ideas, such as: "the workers in factories will arrange holidays and the bosses will work" (touts itself the breakdown of hierarchy and disrespect for authority) and "male chauvinist pig." Women with more power and control desire peace and promote hatred. They left in symbiosis with the liberal and anti-repressive break social rules. Are you sure of what they do, the same certainty and conviction that they had the land claimed to be boring. The right stupid and chauvinistic pigs collaborate enough. It is going to get worse, step by step to growing violence and the state loses control over increasing areas. Under democracy the Latin America will be wiped out by war (civil or not) generalized least 10, maybe 5 years (I wrote in 1999 and the forecast was wrong - I think that these wars will come closer to the 2012 U.S. presidential election). It will get worse; countries of tribal people have technology for destruction of the planet (Pakistan). The developed countries have power to destroy the Earth 1,000 times and can do little against tribal states with the power to destroy it only once. Mexico quickly got rich. In 10 years ago its GDP was half of ours and now in 2002 they passed Brazil GDP. Income distribution has improved a lot and crime is rampant and growing. This takes the relationship between crime and low income. It is going to get worse and nothing can be done! Worldwide ignorant population grows in Brazil, northeastern migrants, immigrants, Bolivians. In Britain, immigrant Arabs, Latin Americans, Africans. In a democracy the weight of these ignorant grows. Do not talk about race, talk about an ignorant migrant population explosion way above the population growth of cults. Most wins in a democracy! In Florida we saw the situation of civil disobedience in the population of strong influence Cuban / Latin / ignorant in the case of the Cuban boy. Although Florida was under suspicion of electoral fraud and has a population largely unable (ignorant) to understand the ballots and vote the wrong way. Plus, Florida tribal was decisive in electing the candidate less able to perform the most important job in the world (Bush Jr.). The most educated and affluent people controls the birth (that started with the pill in 50 years - only accessible and seen as necessary, for decades the most educated, capable and wealthy) and was "born" then unheard of at all times: no longer was able to generate more children and thrive! The nature and biology have been broken. The proportion of ignorant increases and this is a danger to democracy. Europe, USA, Canada etc are on alert against hordes neo-barbarian coming from the world's most ignorant nations. And the right wing is growing (even the Democrats who do not want equal terms with neo barbarians). Did I exaggerate it!? Did I hit the front with you? Ah! I did forget to say that on each 100 homicides we have only three were convicted. This means that I was mistaken: We are a society pre-tribal, because even if a tribe has bigger laws to punish. I am very afraid and I want to escape to somewhere, but I don't have a place and how to escape. I have ancestors in the villages in the region of Santos (SP I've seen pictures of my great-grandmother who was pure Amerindian) hamlets Italian, Portuguese, African (my grandmother Odette had one foot in the "Senzalas"or slave houses). The Portuguese have Moorish blood (Arabic). My paternal surname Jardins (Jews fleeing the inquisition adopted this name and have been living in Italy and Portugal) - Mauro My grandfather had a completely Jewish biotype. It is not a race issue: It is a matter of education for functional illiterates who accuse me of racism, eugenics, reread: I speak against breaking the theory of evolution that was broken with the pill, the most capable for decades no longer generate more children and thus the periphery grows and assumes power. I speak from ignorance. I say that the output now is to educate these people to vote one day. Theory of evolution was conceived by Charles Darwin (search) I learned in biology in college.
INVEST HEAVILY IN EDUCATION: it is an outlet for the next 20 or 30 years for this population to vote right-one day. Between the two candidates who are running for President of Brazil, Jose Serra might not be the best choice out there, he is the only choice. It could be improved, but many people are ashamed to be good politics. In this coming election on October 31, 2010 make the right choice by sending to Brasilia the only candidate who is capable to maintain good relationship with the world and capable to make Brazil's economy continuing to grow; he name is Jose Serra of PSDB party.
Education is our only way out in 20 or 30 years. Serra is the only candidate beating at this key. Until then the people will have to be bought along with elected officials by them. Future candidates to Presidency will have to be able to buy politicians to get elected and to govern.
Another outlet is the district voting and parliamentary
Your opinion is welcome.
*Tupiniquim is also an informal word for Brazilian in modern Brazilian Portuguese, used as both a noun and an adjective: cinema tupiniquim (Brazilian cinema).
