While Iraq is rising, Latin America is sinking: Bolivia on the spot

The victory of Evo Morales in Bolivia represents another fallback in the landscape of Latin America. The winner strategy from Sao Paulo Forum to take over the continent made Bolivia as its new victim. Is curious that the agent is always travestied as a people's man.
Just like Brazil (Lula was an union leader) Bolivia has chosen a man that is representative of the majority of its people: and indigenous leader.

It made all the sense: to make any kind of socialist revolution to work the process must be disguised as a spontaneous will from the people. The question is that Evo could turn out to be another Chávez or another Alejandro Toledo.

This review, made by Graça Salgueiro last sunday- on her website "Notalatina" give us some hint on the subject. We have reasons to be utterly worried...   

..And today another presidential election succeeded in Latin America, this time in a tumultuated and capricious Bolivia. The preferential candidate, according to the last polls,  was the  'cocalero' Evo Morales, with his 48% of voting share . Even if I still not confirmated the results, that only will be divulged tomorrow, we have no doubt that the Brazilian President Lula's and the Sao Paulo Forum candidate is the winner and I explain why.

In the 2002 elections Morales, despite the explicit support from the Sao Paulo Forum deliberations, lost the elections for Gonzalo Sánchez de Lozada but he promised that he would make his government totally impracticable and he will not leave the scene so easily. Through the "nets" (social movements) support, the man brought the hell to the country, with street manifestations  (nothing spontaneous), agitations, riots, invasions, depredations, at last, all those "playful activities" well known for all of us. Lozada resigned and leave for his vice , Carlos Mesa that, equally, did not have any conditions to conclude the mandate, because of the  pressure from those mobs, resigning in June of that year. Many Cuban "G-2" agents "helped" the street fighters and clashes that lead Mesa government to a demoralization and continued their pressure in the Eduardo Rodriguez government too, turned it into a incapable government.

Now Morales returns, with the explicit support from the "Evil Axis" (Lula da Silva + Chávez + Kirchner + Fidel) , and others Latin American Communists leaders like Tabaré Vazquez (Uruguay), the defeated presidential candidate in El Salvador's last elections, Shafik Handal, wanna-be candidate to Nicaragua, 'sandinista' Daniel Ortega, not to mention Mandela, Zapatero, China and France .

Amongst Evo's projects is to convoke a Constitutional conventional, just like his comrade Chávez did, in order to change the effective constitution. According to their own  words, "We will finish the colonial State through a Constitutional conventional (to remodel the Constitution) that's in the way to refound Bolivia. This means that in the Military College not only 'creole' people could enter, but also indigenous people. They would be official. In Justice Hall, in the Supreme Court, we want aboriginals too. We want to change the form people is served, life for the people. To live for the politics and not of the politics. And all the natural resources must be in the hands of the State, that needs partners and not owners or masters ".


Although it always been denied, his model of government is the "bolivarian government" and Hugo Chávez and Fidel Castro are his idols. He even participated, in a TV program called "Alô! President" carried out in Havana, where the "commitment" was consolidated to lead Evo to power in Bolivia. It has a rumour that Evo Morales was back funded by Venezuela and Cuba in his electoral campaign. It was not proved at all (just like here with Worker's Party) but I do not doubt, considering that his party, the Movement to the Socialism (MAS) is member of the Sao Paulo Forum".

She concluded on the importance of this process.

"The importance is that the communist ring is getting tigher and tigher, transforming Latin America into a dream come true to the Caribbean's Vulture (maybe even before he passes over Cuba), as announced in the kick-off meeting of Sao Paulo Forum, back in 1990, "to recover in Latin America what it was lost in the East Europe" .

Iraq Democracy: Louder than bombs!

While BBC edited out "terrorism" from its coverage (see previous post) , Iraqis are cutting terrorism from their lives using the ultimate 'weapon of terror destruction': democracy!

Read this from the blog called IRAQ THE MODEL: "Like eyelashes close in delight upon the sight of one's lover, the boxes closed their lips on Iraqis' ballots.
The tyrants forced us to remain silent for decades but yesterday our fingers spoke out loud in purple.
The fingers wore their purple wedding dress while the enemies wore the black of hatred and evil.
Elections have become the new tradition of Iraqis, those new democrats who proudly want to show the world their new experiment but on the other side there are our "cousins" who still want us to go back to the sheep barn.

We marched to vote and we respected our differences while Saddam is creeping in his cage chewing on his hatred.

From 59 to 64 to one year our people have proven that the future belongs to them and not those whose claws scarred Iraq's neck.

A few bombs and some bullets, that's all what the terrorists could do to interrupt the carnival in Baghdad. The people heard the explosions but those weren't loud enough to distract the marching hearts from their destination. I saw our policemen yesterday showing their hearts too when they refused to wear their armors, maybe because they didn't want to let anything stand between our hearts from theirs."

Happy Xmas

Finally is official: BBC news banned the word "terrorist"

[ ]

After many back-and-forths on the subject, British BBC news officially banned the word "terrorist" from its dictionary.

This news was informed by Argentinian Clarin Digital. According to it the motivation behind is "because (the use of the word 'terrorist') could put a barrier in the place of help".

The newtork news suggested the use of the terms "bomber" or "offender" instead of Terrorist.

For those who got along the news on terrorism offered by BBC must reminded that this issue deserved many reviews on media watch sites all over the world.

The terrorist attacks in London this year caused a commotion on BBC. They first edited out the word from its coverage.

Then - in a sudden glimpse of rationality - they used the term again (" BBC calls terrorism terrorism").

But now it seems final.

We must congratule BBC to achieved something that even GWB couldn´t do over the last four years: BBC has defeated 'terrorism'!!!
And did it only by means of a press-release!!
And there´s people that criticize Political Correctness on news.

It seems that the better way to solve a problem is to deny its existence. But as we are on a Xmas eve, I suggest that - if it couldn´t solve this - they can put it into the Santa´s wishlist.

Down with Logic!

Here´s my manifesto. An one-man-stand-manifesto. A man tired of endless explanation about everything: Down with logic!

After a long time trying to search logic arguments to bind my perceptions; to create propositions that could explain my own intuitive insights on a clear, objective and 'irrefutable' way, I came across a conclusion that this effort is somehow useless. And almost a detour to the real search of truth

The core of the question is that my perceptions come 'a priori', before their explanations. My conclusions are born already finished and even so - I act as if they themselves are not enough - I begin to search for mental schemes that better fit on a logic explanation that could define my perceptions in a objective way.

But it happens that the nature of these perceptions are diametral opposed to the rationalizing schemes: the former is born in the dark room of my mind, acting independently on creating links between apparently disconnected events and taking 'ready-made' conclusions out of the hat. While the latter is the opposite. Logic - if well used - serve as a path to the true. The conclusion is if you did not use logical paths to come to the conclusion, to use logic to explain what was perceived by intuition is a mistake. Is a attempt to transform the perception of truth on a kind of mental play.

This kind of 'impressionist' thinking is more or less like what Marcel Duchamp used to do in the 20th century´s 'avant-garde': to find new meanings to old or common objects. If you try to do a kind of reverse engineering on the subject, you can find yourself on a nowhere land. Or in a even worst place.

The brilliant a 'calculus' demonstration may appears it always will be based on two foundation pillars: logic and its cousin-brother, mathematics. And these two lead us to a world of mandatory demonstrations from time to time.

And with this, everything becomes solid and solid & sensible is the world of economy and sensations. To try to explain human motivations and needs uniquely by sensorial and economic elements without taking the real nature of human spirit into account is a formidable reduction.

How can we explain God in logic terms? Of course is possible to catalog clues and to number out subtle evidence of His presence using those paths, but those demonstrations, even the most evident ones, demand some talent for abstraction of the hearer almost to the same level of speaker´s abstraction to be fully perceived.

By all means, my auto-definition as 'classic-liberal-conservative' is much more a kind of mental habit - of trying to catalog my beliefs into something eatable and reasonably known by the common-sense - than a real explanation of myself.

I believe that every human being and in special his thoughts are uncatalogable by nature. Everyone is an island. But we live in a world that seems that everybody is thinking the same way or some values - like the militant leftism - gained a false importance over others values, so this 'conservative' label serve as an unmistakable declaration of contrariety.

Like and old song from an old Brazilian rock band that used to say 'I feel like a foreigner, a passenger from a train, that does not come here'. This definition maybe appeared on automatic-writing from the (leftist) author but it´s a expression of truth.

My own definition as 'classic-liberal-conservative' is before all a declaration of war. And the same time a declaration on faith on the balance. Because 'liberal' and 'conservative' can only survive if they live in an egalitarian arrangement. Like Aristotle´s words "to keep everything in its right measure". This is the real secret.

And declare war against easy definitions, to the mental plays that lead many people or to a kind of childhood´s leftism or to a radical economicism - both sides of the same coin.

And as 'coin' is a very specific economy subject I keep out from this question.

(To be continued).

Sao Paulo Forum strikes back: Brazilian Pres. Lula da Silva supports Evo Morales in Bolivian elections. No surprises.

Did anybody get surprised about Lula da Silva supporting Evo Morales, the "cocalero", on Bolivia? They have been comrades at Sao Paulo Forum for fifteen years!!

For the useful idiots, that think that Sao Paulo Forum is just a 'debate group' - with no decision nor political struggle features - the last Lula´s speech is - once more - crystal as water on the subject. Read these excerpts from the news.

On folha de Sao Paulo website at 11/30/05

"Look at what Chávez election meant to Venezuela. Just imagine what would mean if Evo Morales won the Bolivian election. They are extraordinary changes that even the most brilliant political scientists of our countries would not be able to write"

´O Globo from 11/30/05

"Lula supports Morales in Bolivia

PUERTO IGUAZÚ, Argentina. Three weeks ahead of the Bolivian elections, the Brazilian president Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva publicly declared yesterday (11/29/05) , his preference for the congressman and 'cocalero' leader Evo Morales. In a improvised speech, on the meeting with Argentina´s president, Néstor Kirchner, to celebrate 20th annivesary of Mercosul (common market of South America) , Lula assured that if Evo Morales won the election on December 18th , it would mean a extraordinary change in the region".

Comment : For those who believe in the 'canasta card game club' , I mean, 'debate group' version of Sao Paulo Forum, I bet: Show me one declaration, speech, intention or action from Brazilian president which is contrary to any resolution from Sao Paulo Forum. Or even opposed to other Forum´s participant. If there´s any, I will surrender to evidence. And I am going to dedicate myself to card games, too.

From Media Without Mask website: Lula's Minister of Economy is the extra-official Colombia's terrorist group representative in Brazil!

In a sensational article, Heitor de Paola, one of the most prolificous editors from Media Without Mask website in Brazil, has revealed a true atomic bomb: Antonio Palocci, Lula's 2002 campaign chief and now the almighty minister of economy is in fact the extra-official representative of FARC (major drug-dealing-terrorist group in Colombia) interests in Brazil.
He created a pro-Farc committee in 2002 when he was the mayor of the city of Ribeirao Preto. Heitor has found this news that was published only in the local newspapers NINE MONTHS after the fact, when Palocci was already in charge of Lula da Silva campaign that year. The information was totally hidden from a larger audience since that time, surviving only as a rumour. Now , when the Cuba-Lula affair has put Palocci under fire, that it emerged again. Read the details here:

"I have denounced, together with other columnists from Media without Mask website that the 'motherland saviour' , Minister of Economy Antonio Palocci Filho, is not waht it seems, he is the extra-official representative of Colombian drug-dealing-terrorist group called FUERZAS ARMADAS REVOLUCIONARIAS DE COLOMBIA - FARC in Brazil. And his performance in charge of Brazil's economy is part of a genius plan from the SAO PAULO FORUM (fsp) to mold the economy in the false 'stability' axis where it is, with incredibly high interest rates and daily bankrupt of hundreds of companies while banks are profitting as ever!, to serve as a support of a totalitarian project of Fidel, Chávez and Luila to Latin America".

Here's the proof of Palocci-Farc link.

Media Without Mask: "It's a text by Joel Silva, Free Lancer and Marcelo Toledo, reporters from a newspaper called “Folha de Ribeirao” with the collaboration of Evandro Spinelli, dating march, 10th, 2002, that was only made available through the internet nine months later, in december, 10th, 2002 and, as a magic trick. disappeared until now. The title is 'Dangerous Liasons - Group wants to spread the 'causes' from FARC'. It continued 'PT's (worker party) secretary launched a supportive committe to the Colombian guerrilla'. This is the text"

" The ofice will be officially launched march, 20th, in the executive chamber of Ribeirao Preto's . The office will be localized at 'citizens temple', a non-profit cultural organization, whose Palocci is one of the founder-members. The group will be called 'Solidarity to the Colombian People and to the National Liberation Movements Committee' (....)

Part o f the committee says they want to defend the causes of FARC, but not its violence. 'The idea is the we could spread to all Brazil the situation of Colombian people and the true causes of the FARC's fight against the local government'. One of the members, Paulino, is radical : 'I don't think that elections will solve (the problems of Brazil), it's the revolution. Today in Brazil thereś no condition to make an armed revolution, but not in Colombia. They (FARC) have an organized military.

Palocci and Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva were not found to speak about the episode yesterday. The committee will gather pro-Farc signatures and will defend the Farc's arguments around Brazil. During the launching a guerilla's activist will be present. 'We need to speak out and to launch Farc's committees all around the world to denounce the problems that occurred in that country', said Beto Cangussú (PT) - on of the founders.

To 'seal the deal', there was a meeting in Ribeirao Preto joining Paulino and Oliverio Medina - the unofficial Farc's spokenperson in Brazil, that even was got caught in 2000, accused from terrorist activities by Colombian government (note: Medina is under arrest right now in Brazil , on a eve of his expulsion to Colombia)."

Nothing to comment. Only a question : Am I being too paranoid? No, just like Andy Grove's (Intel Chairman) book said "Only the paranoid survive"!!

What´s behind the MSMedia explanations for French riots: Blame the West first!

Philosopher Olavo de Carvalho explains what is behind the Mainstream Media 'causes'  for the French-Muslim riots, what is behind the 'poor and young immigrants'  'victims' of 'western lack of compassion':

1- "Every western nation has an obligation to give immediately to immigrants from Asia and Africa – aside from the question if they came legal or illegally – the same living standards from the families that inherited it after centuries of hard work. If the State do not does it, is because it is racist and because capitalism is unfair intrinsically".

2 - "If Islamic or Communist countries give no rights to any foreign citizen, if they openly discriminate them or even reduce them to second class citizens, like in Iran, this is not a big deal, because western nations must be judged strictlly under absolute and unconditional moral patterns, while their adversaries must benefited by the cultural relativism".

The name of the article is 'Assimetric  Media' and was published  on Media Without Mask  website.

This time I think they are forgetting to blame president Bush. Or not? Let´s wait...

Brazilian Gramscian Revolution or How to be a invisible-communist

Brazilian Gramscian Revolution or How to be a invisible-communist

Openly declare your thankfulness, admiration, even send money to Fidel and still make people believe that you are not a communist

this article was published on website.

The first part is history by now. Deputy Roberto Jefferson denounced half-cabinet of Lula da Silva of being part of a huge corruption scheme based on purchasing support for government on deputy's house.

But now it's different. There's nothing to do with internal corruption. We are talking about a foreign help and intromission in Brazil's affairs.

Read what weekly magazine "Veja" published this week:

"Lula's campaign received money from Cuba

Dollars in beverage boxes went to Brasilia (capital) and Campinas (main city of São Paulo state) before reached the Lula's electoral committee in São Paulo. Two former Minister Palocci (economy) auxiliary, assured the story to VEJA. Rogério Buratti and Vladimir Poleto, that transported the money from Brasilia to Campinas in a "Seneca" plane. (Policarpo Junior)

The great interrogation not answered yet about the corruption scandal that involved PT( Worker 's Party) is what is the source of the money that boosted the hidden PT's safe?
This is the question that intrigues the parliamentary commissions and the police investigations. It can be that the PT's forbidden funds came from just one source, but is likely that it origined from various sources.

One of the Veja's investigations , that started four weeks ago, led to Fidel's island: Cuba. Yes. Cuba, where the money is scarce even to buy a door or to put water filter on schools, sent a money avalanche to help Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva's presidential campaign in 2002. Details.

Between august and September of 2002 Lula's electoral committee received three million dollars that came from Cuba. The money was guarded by a Cuban named Sérgio Cervantes, known as diplomat in Rio and Brasilia.
From Brasilia, the money was led to Campinas by plane, in three beverage boxes (two boxes of Johnnie Walker whiskey and one box of Cuban Run). The person that took the money was Vladimir Poleto, an economist and former Palocci's auxiliary when he was Ribeirão Preto's Mayor.
In Campinas, the money was taken at the Viracopos airport by Ralf Barquete, another former Palocci's auxiliary from Ribeirão Preto. Barquete came on a blinded black Omega (GM's model), driven by Eder Eustaquio Soares Macedo. From Viracopos, they went to São Paulo (capital) to deliver the boxes at Lula's electoral committee, to PT's cashier Delubio Soares."

This is the core of what was published by Veja. Is it true? Aside from the involvement with Fidel and Chávez on "Sao Paulo Forum" (this relationship is always somehow avoided by the mainstream media in Brazil) these are the developments on the case:

This was published by the opposition blog of Cesar Maia


São Paulo, saturday , September , 27th 2003 -FOLHA SP

"Lula landed in Cuba with some economic gifts

President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, 57, landed yesterday in Cuba with economic gifts to dictator Fidel Castro, 77. It will ease the payment of 20% from the debts of R$ 134 million from Cuba to Bank of Brazil and R$ 20 million will be invested by National Economic and Social Development Bank in an a plant that will produce fuel from alcohol."

Another news tell that Sergio Cervantes, the presumed Cuban agent that guarded the money in Brazil, flew back to Cuba in a hurry two days after "Veja" published its story.

But, despite these huge evidences, public is being mislead by the mainstream media that still support Lula: they all blame "Veja" as doing bad journalism and to accuse 'without proof".

But what is the core of "good journalism"? To publish the facts described by "Veja" in a almost ashamed way, only reprinting the text in internal pages while Cuba´s official denying is published in bolder letters on first page ?

This is the kind of press we have here.

"Veja" made good journalism. They described facts, names and dates.
It´s all a smoke curtain to avoid the media – specially the press – to show what´s going on in the basement of Lula´s government.
Today it´s the fifth day after "Veja" has published the subject and all I hear is people blaming the magazine, not the government!!
They try to make believe that´s all lies. That Lula is a candid & naive president, that he and his party are the impersonation of "ethic in politics".

But there are discordant voices:

According to Reinaldo Azevedo – editor of "Primeira Leitura" (First Reading) website
"The reaction to "Veja" talk more about the degradation of politics and the ideological serfdoom that we are being trampled than only corruption itself. In essence, it´s a matter of recognize that there are groups , that consider themselves as being above (and they MUST BE above) any kind of suspect, that the news that put them under disapproval of the public only worth if it has an official administrative act as a proof of evidence"

Another gunshot was provided by philosopher Olavo de Carvalho:

"Crime is not to denounce without final proof : crime is to demand final proof from the start to avoid that they could be found at the end of the process. This procedure is as much intolerable as you see that it comes from the same individuals and groups that, having promoted former president Collor´s impeachment in a hurry without waiting the justice to find the proof of any nature, do not have the minimum amount of honesty to regret in public from their former accusations when , one year later, justice sentenced that the proof simply did not exist. The same elements, in a kafkanian inversion, demand proof not only as pre-requisite to a investigative process (that is the target of any investigation) but as the condition required to ask an investigation, they reveal how hard is the perception in their hearts and minds in the belief that the law must be hard and demanding to their enemies and altruist and smooth to their own. This belief is the undeniable trace of a criminal mind"

Brazil is known as the land of Carnival. We like to use masks, but it´s time to take them off sometimes. We are used to believe in all kind of fairy tales, except the truth.
Only in Brazil that evidences are trade by wishfull thinking and the more reality bites, more people submerge deeper and deeper in their golden fantasies.
We do not need any "invisible" communist agent : we save their efforts, we paint them with evanescent ink ourselves. Only the fool can be fooled.

In a country like this, I hope gramsci´s communist revolution come ASAP!

The sad ending of Fidel Castro:got busted giving money to big-banana president

Fidel Castro is in his all way down to decadance: in the sixties he was a big star on Mad magazine cover, by his strong anti-american position; Today he is on the cover of the main brazilian weekly magazine "Veja" because he gave away dollars to the brazilian president Lula campaing in 2002. In fact it was 3 million dollars hidden in bevarage boxes...

What a sad ending... From Alfred E. Neuman to Lula da Silva. Fidel, please, "don't feed the animals" (Lula is a brazilian word for "squid")
Check out Fidel decadance...

Far from the irony, this information is a real "bomb" and might explode worker's party and Lula da Silva expectation for next year. But it's a side effect derived from it. It proves that Lula da Silva is a real traitor of Brazil. He is not my president. He always acted as "São Paulo Forum" president instead of being the real President of Brazil.
Nowadays, it seems that all Latin America has just one man standing tall before his people: President Alvaro Uribe from Colombia.
The rest is in red's hands.

"Against red" is part of team!

This humble blogger was invited to join a political website as one of the editors.
The site is called and its target is to share political views from all over the world.
Go there and check out my first post.

Ban-Gun referendum: Brazil says "NO"

Today is a happy day in Brazil. Finally it seems that the battle is not totally lost.
There is something that's still alive behind decades of gramscian-lefty garbage spread by cultural influence agents.
The "NO" victory over the "YES" (the question was if "You agree with the total prohibition of firearms sales in Brazil?") is a smashing victory. Some exit polls rated it as 70%-30%. An outstanding victory.

But it was not what it seems only two months ago. At that time, some polls projected that "YES" will win over "NO" for more than 80% of the voters. What was involved was a group of powerfull groups: Major Media (TV Globo), Federal Government and even foreign entities like Ford Foundation, ONU and other NGO were figthing hard for "YES". But something gone wrong.

When the public campaign on tv started, people saw musicians, actors and famous-wannabes crying out platitudes or just stupidness towards guns ("guns kills", "it's the struggle between the macho-conservative old Brazil" - those who opted for "no" - "and the modern and democratic Brazil" - those who opted for "YES"). While the NO-supporters just fight for your right to buy and to keep a gun if you wanted - it's an universal right to defend ourselves in a time that government and police doesn´ t do their duties.

People started to get sick about those "shiny happy people" making the peace-dove symbol with their hands...

Nobody expected such change of public opinion. But it´ s done.

Those gramscian social-engineers at federal government had been defeated, at least for this time. But the battle is just begun?
I hope so.
Next year we have another presidential race. It is clear that this referendum got some Lula's Government trial colors.. Let's see.
I will keep to swimming against the red tide. It seems that next year, red's revenge could be harder....

President Lula: confessed guilty

President Lula da Silva, in a very well documented speech, showed no fear for revealing what´s his true motivation as Brazilian president: to help murders, tyrants, dictator-wannabes and red cocaine guerrilla leaders to take control over Latin America.
In fact, Lula has reassured his commitment to a foreign league of suspect nations (Venezuela, Cuba) and obscured left organizations known as "Foro de São Paulo" (Sao Paulo Forum) instead of his duty as President of Brazil.

It has just one name: Treason.

Philosopher Olavo de Carvalho has noted this, because the speech was not wide-spreaded among Brazilian media (of course not, they are part of the plan). Here´s the details:

"In celebration of the 15th anniversary of Sao Paulo Forum, the presidential speech on July , 2th that was reproduced by the o fficial government´s internet site ( .br/download/discursos/pr812a .doc)
is a true confession of a conspiration against Brazilian national sovereignity, a graver crime than the whole corruption cases committed and hidden by his government; A crime that would justify not only an impeachment act but also putting him under arrest.

The meaning of these phrases , once detached from its verbal garbage container, is clearly hurtling:

'On the purpose of the Sao Paulo Forum, comrade Marco Aurelio has developing an extraordinary role on consolidating what we started in 1990. That was the way that we, in january 2003, proposed to our comrade President Chávez the creation of the "Group of Friends" to find out a peaceful solution that – thanks God – happened in Venezuela. And this only possible through political acts made by 'comrades'. It was not a State's political act from one to another or from a President to another. For those who remembered, Chávez participated in one of the meetings that took place in Havana. And thanks to this relationship it was possible to build , among many political divergences, the consolidation of what happened in Venezuela, by the 'referendum' that confirmed Chávez as President of Venezuela.

This was the way we could act inside other countries with our comrades from the social movement, political parties from those countries, from the union's syndicate movement: always using the relationship built at Sao Paulo's Forum to afford us to talk about it without people seeming it as any kind of political interference'

What is implicitly admitted above is:

1) Sao Paulo's Forum is a secret entity or at least it's hidden from the public.

2) This entity actively interfere on internal affairs of many Latin American nations, taking decisions and influencing the occurrences' way outside from the government, parliament, justice or public opinion overlooking.

3) The so called "Group of Friends of Venezuela" was nothing more than an arm, a façade agency of Sao Paulo Forum.

4) After was elected in 2002, Lula da Silva, at the same time that left his duty as Sao Paulo Forum President, seeming that he was free to lead Brazil government without any compromises with foreign alliances, kept working clandestinely to the forum, helping to produce results in Venezuela´s referendum in 2004.

5) The orientation of Brazil's foreign political were not decided by Lula - President of Brazil, but Lula – president of Sao Paulo Forum.

The president confessed that submitted the country to decisions took by foreign persons in an entity whose actions must not to be known nor to be understood by the Brazilian people".

But to those that thinks it is just a misunderstood statement, Lula added new clues to his treason this week, in a meeting with Communist Party of Brazil.

Read the translation:

"Lula admitted to communists the he did not succeeded to implement big social changes defended by the Brazilian left because he is in a presidential regime that adopted a parliamentary constitution and not to have a majority on the congress. 'We are far from building the dream that we hoped for decades' added"

That meeting is the 11th Communist Party of Brazil. This party still believe in the communist revolution. This party still supporting the Workers Party government. Lula acknowledges it and thanked the party's president for his loyalty.

If Lula's still president of Sao Paulo forum – cause still adopting their decisions, and if Lula still have support from the communists, where did the "transformation" of Workers Party go? Nowhere, it was just a marketing plan that, unfortunately, worked very well.

Worker's Party, The Sao Paulo Forum and the Communists are still in the fight to recover in Latin America what was lost in Eastern Europe and Russia. And Lula da Silva is their finest agent.

So help us God.

We don´t need natural disasters, We have president Lula da Silva

This is an amazing article by the brazilian neocon Reinaldo Azevedo.
Reinaldo is the editor of a magazine/website called "Primeira Leitura" ("First Reading"). During Fernando Henrique Cardoso´s government, "Primeira.." used to be the spokenperson of brazilian main social-democrat party - PSDB. But since Lula da Silva was elected, it begun to swerved to the right and conservatism.

This text explain why we (the conservatives) are so depressed by the politics in Brazil.
I tottally agreed with except for the part that imposes the guilt for the dead in NO to GWB. But Reinaldo is brazilian and this is the regular thinking here...

Unfortunately this text is in portuguese but here´s some excerpts.
We have Lula. We don´t need natural disasters. 
by Reinaldo Azevedo  

"Well, we are lucky, indeed! As composer Chico Buarque used to say, we 'came across'  a territory whose tectonic plates are old and stable, didn´t they? I started to think that even in the nature there´s no thing like 'free lunch': to get even with this smooth nature, the intense way that we mistreated our own history equals to many earthquakes in a row. Do you want to know it?  More than 40 thousand people die in Brazil every year as victims of firearms, it´s higher than the Pakistan´s earthquake death toll (23 thousand to date) and forty times of the number of victims of the Hurricane Katrina. And our government had a 'brilliant' idea to lower this number: to disarm the victims, not the criminals.

Despite the war in Iraq, Bush could be terminated by those thousand deceased in New Orleans. American people could forgive a war if it was for a good reason, but they do not accept unmotivated lack of action. It turns  out to be unpatriotic. People that do not rebel against tax bad use & robbery deserve to live under the whiplash, indeed. The United States are a great nation. And Brazil is an unimportant nation. Only angered people don´t see this".

Brazil: Disarming delinquents or the good people?

Brazil is going to prohibit the sales of firearms. It's another step towards socialism.

Is relevant to say that the carrying of firearms are already prohibited since 2004. This "referendum" is just to confirm if the sales has got to be the same ending.

The referendum is dividing the nation, but not the Main Stream Media: While southern states - like mine - the "NO" (yes, the question is confusing "Do you approve the prohibition the sales of firearms?") will win for a large margin; people who got the facts turns to "NO" too, the major opinion among "decision makers", newspapers, TV network is the opposite.
After a year with firearms sales prohibiton, with no descend in the crime rate index, when the reasons do not prove themselves, MSM, social analyzers, philosophers and other insist that "disarming" people is a "victory" for modernity over the "conservative", "violent", "macho", culture.

The left supports it for three reasons:

  • Stalin, Hitler, Castro did it.
  • It´s another marxist culture warfront against conservatism.
  • The left see "penises" in every gun they see and they have to fight it.

This article from "Destaque Internacional" explains exactly my point of view on the case.

: Disarming delinquents or the good people?

One hopes that common sense will prevail in the next referendum due to be held on the 23rd. October when voters will decide for or against the sale of firearms, remembering that if registered firearms in the hands of the public is to be considered against the law, then only outlaws will remain armed.

1. Next October 23rd. there will be a referendum in Brazil to decide whether or not to prohibit the sale of firearms and ammunition to individual members of the public. It is the first referendum of this nature to be held anywhere in the world. In 2003 Congress approved the Disarmament Law (Law nº 10.826 of 23rd. December 2003) which prohibits the carrying and use of firearms by individuals, even if the said firearms are registered with the local authorities, and thus made it even more difficult to possess firearms in ones home.

2. The Brazilian authorities allege that these prohibitions would decrease the high death rates by use of guns, which amount to about 40 thousand deaths per year. Although, according to some authorities, with statistics and common sense at hand, suggest that the use of illegal firearms account for these high figures rather than with legally registered firearms. But it can also be said that the Disarmament Law and the referendum to prohibit the commercialization of firearms and ammunition might provoke a negative result in disarming honest people, leaving individuals to their own fate with crooks, assailants, rapists and drug traffickers who will continue to be armed simply because their weapons are not registered anyway, anyway, as well as not having a fixed abode and are not, of course, concerned with laws. Quite apart from which, the State cannot control all public areas so that gangsters and robbers can be as free as wolves in a chicken run!

3. It is estimated that there are over 20 million illegal firearms in Brazil – mostly obtained thru robbery as well as contraband into the country – and some 2 million registered firearms. What the authorities should do is to increase security for the public's benefit and try to recuperate stolen weapons, and not impede the use of legally registered firearms. Over the past few years insecurity has increased tremendously in this gigantic and important South American country, with the Brazilian drug traffickers increasing their power and establishing alliances with the Colombian FARC drug barons and guerillas, also encamping Korean and Nigerian drug traffickers who have started to enter large Brazilian cities, and often characterized by use of extreme cruelty. Brazilian prisons are now notorious as "crime headquarters" and "crime schools" which teaches inmates how organized crime works.

As if this wasn't enough, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), are now financing and defending criminals rights using overseas donations, giving them legal aid so that they can escape Justice and obtain the smallest possible punishment or shorter prison terms. It is well-known that Brazilian leftists, including the so-called Catholic Left, on mass, defend prohibition of legally registered firearms. The pro-Cuban movement of rural workers without land (MST), responsible for a good many farm invasions and violence in rural areas, also favors in the plebiscite the prohibition of sale of firearms and ammunition which, should it that position win, will make them feel as wolves in a hen-house.

4. Serious problems surrounding public security cannot be resolved with the disarmament of honest, law-abiding citizens. Nor must we forget that violence has deeper reasons, overall moral causes, i.e., religious crisis which affects society, family, public, educational, ecclesiastical institutions, etc. And they are more important than economic problems.

5. International statistics show that there is not a relationship between assassination indexes and residences which possess firearms. In Brazil there are 27 homicides per 100 thousand inhabitants, and the percentage of residences with registered firearms is 3.5%. In the United States, for example, there are 6 homicides per 100 thousand inhabitants (4.5 times less) and the percentage of households with firearms is 52% (14 times more). In Italy there are 2 homicides per 100 thousand inhabitants (13 times less), and 17% with registered household firearms (4 times more). And likewise, one can detail these sort of figures in the same context and apply this to innumerous countries.

6. We hope that in Brazil, next 23rd. October, common sense will prevail and voters should remember that if firearms in the hands of law abiding citizens will become illegal, only outlaws will have firearms.

From Daily NK: "Let's fly a balloon tied with bible verses"

See this image: People sending balloons over the North Korean borders with some sheets of paper tied with it. Those sheets are Bible's pages.

According to these people, defectors from that communist regime "“This was the only way to spread the gospel to the people of North Korea”

Isn't it depressing? The Words of The Lord are completely forbidden in North Korea. Even behind bars on a filthy jail, where the sun doesn't shine, in any forgotten corner of South America, still you can freed your mind & spirit by the reading of the Bible.
But in North Korea no.

But is not only in a place like North Korea the Bible's word are being prohibited. We face now an incredible wave of anger towards christianism and even christians. It's far away from what's happening in NK but it's fasting its pace all over the world.
I feel that in a few years christians, even in democratic western countries, will be putting their balloons in the air too.

Read this story in "Daily NK" website.

French Company built Chemical Weapon Factory for Saddam instead of Powdered Milk Plant in Iraq

[ ]

French blog "No Pasaran!" has a good example of a typical detour used to boost Saddam destructive power using the "humanitarian" UN "oil-for-food" program.
In this case a Powdered Milk Plant turned into a Chemical Weapon Factory with the help of France.
Read on at ¡No Pasarán!: "While Hired to Make Powdered Milk for Iraqi Children, French Arms Company Built a Chemical Weapons Factory for Saddam

Michel Josserand was fired from Thalès (formerly Thomson) in 2004 explains Hervé to non-French speakers as he comments a TF1 news article.

He now accuses his former company of having installed a vast corruption system in France and abroad. He talks about a Thalès lawyer who validated a vast bribery system in a lot of countries. 'There are 2 kind of countries: those where bribery is unavoidable (Africa, Korea, Greece, Italy) and those where you can do business without tampering (several European countries, North America, Australia, NZ). And France? It depends on local and national political interests.'

In foreign countries, he relates Operation Miksa, a bribery system in order to deliver security devices to Saudi Arabia. But this system was diverted in order to deliver chemical weapons to Saddam as Iraq suffered the UN the embargo of Oil-for-food program."

Chile: sweeping away the dust from the truth - Pinochet had acted to obey a resolution of the Chilean Congressmen

After my two last articles (here and here) some updates and repercussions must be done.

First: the full article from Eduardo Mackenzie on the book "Cuba Nostra" that I translated was published by the main Brazilian conservative website .  See here.

Second: I received some comments about that may be true that the assassination of Allende was perpetrated by Fidel and his agents in Chile but Allende was a democratic - even though socialist - president and represented no threat for democracy in Chile nor to US and  the military "coup" in 1873 was managed by US through CIA and even through Pinochet.

This is a lie! A worldwide-spread lie.
The truth is here.

If he exceeded the legal rule to accomplish his duty, is another story, but the premise was that he was trying to obey a resolution of the Chilean Congressmen.

"It is true that Salvador Allende was elected President of Chile in 1970 by means of a democratic election (although with only 36.6% of the vote). Nevertheless, it is equally true that his government lost its democratic character by repeatedly violating the Constitution. The Economist said it clearly at the time: " The temporary death of democracy in Chile will be regrettable, but the blame lies clearly with Dr. Allende and those of his followers who persistently overrode the Constitution" (September 15, 1973).

In effect, President Allende became a tyrant when he broke his solemn oath to respect the Constitution and the Chilean laws. There are numerous evidences to that effect (including a clear statement of the Supreme Court), but the most important one--and widely unknown outside of Chile--is the momentous Agreement of 23 August 1973 of the Chamber of Deputies (the Lower House of the Chilean Congress), which I have translated and posted as "The Declaration of Breakdown of Chilean Democracy".

And here the full transcription of the resolution called "The Declaration of Breakdown of Chilean Democracy":

Editor's Note: This is the complete text of the resolution that Chile's Chamber of Deputies approved by 81 votes against 47, on August 22 1973. The resolution includes a list of the legal and constitutional violations committed by the Marxist government of President Salvador Allende. In the absence of a viable impeachment procedure contemplated in the Constitution, it "presents" the Armed Forces, among other authorities, with this "grave breakdown of the Republic's constitutional and legal order." Likewise, it serves to "remind them that, by virtue of their responsibilities, their pledge of allegiance to the Constitution, and to the laws of the land . . . it is their duty to put an immediate end to all situations herein referred to that breach the Constitution and the laws of the land." After this call to "immediate" action by the equivalent of the US House of Representatives or the UK House of Commons, the Chilean Armed Forces, led by the Army commander General Augusto Pinochet, decided on September 11, 1973—only 18 days later—to remove from office the President, thus charged with violating the Chilean Constitution. As Benjamin Franklin said, "Resistance to tyrants is obedience to God.")

Another conservative brazilian blogger started to write in english.. Enjoy it.

My friend Claudio Tellez just started an english version of his very good portuguese blog.
He writes outstanding texts as you can see.
While I am a gun-machine-style post-maker he goes to the depth os his ideas and emerges with great pieces of thoughts.

Here´s his own definition on politics and economy:

Claudio Tellez: "My belief is that economic freedom and democratic State of Right, two fundamental pillars of any society that pretends itself to be liberal, should be built upon a strong moral basis which makes a clear distinction between truths and lies, virtues and vices, good and evil. In the absence of objective parameters for our acts as individuals, we cannot speak of responsibility, and liberty can only exist in an environment where people are conscious and responsible for all their choices.

In other words, I am a right-winged Chilean mathematician, living in Brazil and drinking a lot of coffee!"

China launches "North Sword" war game

China launches "North Sword" war "'The Chinese army is becoming more open and transparent,' said Peng Guangqian, a major general of the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA).

'Such openness and transparency is a refution against the 'China threat' rhetoric,' said Peng, who is also a research fellowwith the PLA's Military Academy of Sciences. 'Facts have proved that China does not constitute any threat to any country, instead China is a major force in safeguarding world peace and stability.'

After the war game, Chinese and foreign military officers will hold academic discussions at the drill base, according to defense sources."

Does anybody believe it? It's just empty rethoric. China is still red and still a threat for democratic world.

What changed was the strategy: instead of being dependent from the "Moscow Gold" now China is taking resources from capitalist world to attack the west when the right time comes.

North Corea doesn't allowed us to forget what "socialism" means

Blog Free Thoughts has upsetting images of how low a socialism regime could fall : "Physical Abuse of a Woman by the North Korean Military - Pictures taken on August 17, at a border military station"

That's the real socialism. The way defined as "social-democracy" is just a slower lane to reach the same spot: total control over the human being by a giant state.
This is what happens when the disguise of "egalitarianism" is left behind.

Full Article: The sad ending of Salvador Allende- finally discovered?

By the huge reception to this story, I decided to translate the full article from Eduardo Mackenzie to english. We hope this book to be translated to english too, right away.

by Eduardo Mackenzie *
Paris, 12 of September of 2005

Salvador Allende did not commit suicide, nor died under the bullets of the military coup participants the 11th, September, 1973. During the assault against La Moneda palace, the president of Chile was cowardly assassinated by one of the Cuban agents who were in charge of their protection. While the military was bombing the place, the panic had seized among the president´s collaborators and he, in view of the desperate situation, had requested and obtained brief fire ceases and was, in the end, determined to stop all resistance. According to a witness of the facts, Allende, frightened by terror, ran by the corridors of the second floor of the palace shouting: "It is necessary to surrender". Before he could do it, Patricio de la Guardia, an agent of Fidel Castro and direct responsible of Chilean president´s security, waited Allende returned to his writing-desk and it shot him in the head with a machine-gun burst. Immediately, he put on the body of Allende a gun - making believe that he was murdered by the military attackers and returned in a rush to first floor of the flaming building where they waited for other Cubans to leave. The group left La Moneda palace in complete silence and after minutes took refuge in Cuba´s embassy, located near from the palace.

This version of the dramatic ending of Salvador Allende, who contradicts the two previous almost-official versions, either by Fidel Castro (the thesis of the heroic death in combat), or by the Chilean Military junta (the 'suicide' one), required only two old members of secret organisms Cuban - very informed about that bloody episode and today exiled in Europe- to com to life.

In a book that is finish publishing in Paris editor Plon Editions, entitled "Cuba Nostra, them secrets d'Etat of Fidel Castro", Alain Ammar, a journalist specialized in Cuba and Latin America, analyzes and confronts the declarations gave him by Juan Vives and Daniel Alarcón Ramirez, two ex- Cuban civil intelligence employees.

Exiled since 1979, Juan Vives is a former secret agent of the dictatorship and Osvaldo Dorticós Torrado´s nephew , the opereta´s Cuban president that reigned from 1959 to 1976, and "was forced to suicide" in dark circumstances in 1983. Vives told him that in November, 1973, in a bar at Habana Libre hotel, where some members of the security office used to meet on saturdays to drink beer and to interchange by informal ways rumours and information of all type, he listened the same story form the Patricio de la Guardia, head of the Cuban special troops present in La Moneda fatal september, 11th, 1973, that chilling confession.

During years, Vives did not want to present that information because , as he says, "it was dangerous to do it" and cause there was until that moment no other Cuban person in exile that could confirm the trustworthy featurer of those facts. When Ramirez knew that Daniel Alarcón, a.k.a "Benign" , one of the three survivors from the guerrilla of Ernesto Guevara in Bolivia, also was exiled in Europe, the idea to present those serious facts returned to gained force.

In the book of Alain Ammar, "Benign" confirms the whole Vives' story. Both knew Salvador Allende and his family. Both lived in Chile during Allende's government. Both listened, at different moments, the confession of the de la Guardia when they returned to Havana.

The book of Ammar accurately describes the last months of the "Unidade Popular" government and, mainly, it shows the advanced degree of direct control that Fidel Castro had managed to install -- by means of its hundreds of spies from the DGI (a Cuban service of intelligence), by means of its operators and implanted influence agents in Santiago --, on the Rescuing president Allende, his ministers and even his friends and more intimate collaborators. In fact, what they call "Chilean way to the socialism" had been turned aside by Castro until the point of even from within the Allende's government there were voices that criticized that brutal interference. Months before his death, Salvador Allende already "had been instrumentalized by Castro", explains Juan Vives. "But Allende he was not the man whom Havana wanted to be in charge in Santiago. Who Castro and Piñero [ right arm of Castroe in operations of espionage in Latin America, died recently in Cuba of a heart attack ] prepared for this, the body-guard of the same president Allende, were Miguel Henríquez, main leader of the MIR and Pascal Allende, number two at the MIR, just like Beatriz Allende, the daughter of the president, who also belonged to the MIR ". Beatriz will die in Cuba in 1974.

The control on the Chilean Chief of State had been become serious remarkably after the first attempt of military coup, the 29 of June of 1973, more known as "tancazo". When Havana knew that the Chileans who surrounded the president were scared, Fidel Castro let Allende know that he could not surrender in any case nor requesting asylum in an embassy. "If it had to die, it had to die like a hero. Any other attitude, cowardly and little brave, would have serious repercussions for the fight in Latin America ", remembers Juan Vives. For that reason Fidel Castro issued the order to Patricio de la Guardia "to eliminate Allende if he, in the last moment, surrendered to fear".

Shortly after the first attacks to La Moneda, Allende had said to Patricio de la Guardia that was about to request political asylum at Sweden embassy. The executive agent chief had even designated to Augusto Olive, his advisor of press, to do it. Probably for that reason Olive, a.k.a "perro" , also received and ultimatum by the Cubans before they closed batteries against the president of Chile. "Recruited by the Cuban DGI, Olive transmitted even the minimum thoughts of Allende to Piñeiro, that, as well, informed to Fidel", Juan Vives declared.

Another Chilean body-guard of Allende , a certain Agustín, also "was shot" by the Cubans at those dramatic moments, according to the declaration by "Benigno" to the author of the book. Weeks after the coup d'etat, Patricio de la Guardia had revealed, in effect, to "Benigno" the ending of Agustín, brother of a friend of him that still lives in Cuba, and it had given another important detail to him on the happening during that tragic morning in the palace of La Moneda: before the machine-gunning, the Cuban agent had grabbed Salvador Allende by force, who wanted to come out form the palace, and he had seated him on the presidential armchair shouting to him: "a president dies in his site".

The version of the point-blank shot of Allende was not absolutely stranger. At Septembed, 12th, 1973 several agencies, among them the AFP , summarized in four lines that fact. Published on the following day by Le Monde the cable said: "According to sources of the Chilean right, president Allende was killed by his personal guard at moments at which he requested five minutes of cease of fire to surrender to the military who were on the verge of entering the palace of La Moneda". Ammar indicates that this hypothesis "was immediately buried" because it was not profitable to anybody: "neither to the collaborators of Allende, nor to the Chilean left, nor to his friends abroad, nor to the military nor, mainly, to Fidel Castro...".

The confirmation that, until recently, this "hypothesis" received from Juan Vives and Daniel Alarcón Ramirez could be reinforced in the future by the testimonies of other silenced Cuban civil employees and by documents that are outside Cuba. In effect, in a bank of Panama the masterful piece of this magnicidio would rest. According to the authors of the book, Patriciode la Guardia, who was condemned to thirty years in jail during the process-farce against major general Arnaldo Ochoa Sanchez, and in residence vigil today, would have deposited a compromissing document in the coffer of a Panamanian bank which describes, among other things, the assassination of Allende by order of Castro, in a text that would have to be revealed in case of death of Patricio de la Guardia. Fidel Castro, according to the authors of the book, would have taken this threat very seriously and it caused Patricio to escaped to the execution, unlike Tony, his brother, that along with general Ochoa and two other civil employees of the Department of the Interior, were shot at July/13/1989.

The revelation of what happened to Salvador Allende is not interesting solely for the historians of the calamitous adventure of the Unidade Popular in Chile. It is interesting too, for the new Latin American friends of Fidel Castro, specially for Venezuela president Hugo Chávez. Hugo Chávez and others, the more reliable are them for Havana, just like had been president Allende - at least in the papers - could be being now object of identical kind ofr control and political domination by the same services that built so beastly against the president of Chile. The book of Alain Ammar approaches, in its 425 pages, many other subjects and episodes related to complicated and not always successful secret operations of Havana in Cuba and several countries. It is expected that a translation to the Spanish of that useful book could be quickly in bookstores (and english too).

Salvador Allende's sad ending: He was fund-backed by KGB and got killed by a Cuban Agent!

A new book, about to be published in France "Cuba Nostra - Les Secrets D'Etat de Fidel Castro" by Alain Ammar has destroyed a very-well constructed myth by the left: The assassination of Salvador Allende in Chile while he was being toppled by Augusto Pinochet. This article by Eduardo Mackenzie (updated: it was translated by me to Media Without Mask website) has a brief on the book.
"The fact is that Allende was not a suicide, he was not killed by the military that took the power in september, 1973. During their assault against La Moneda palace, Chilean president was cowardly murdered by one of the Cuba agent that were in charge of his protection" says Eduardo.

Allende was frightened by the military and wanted to surrender. Before he could do this, he was killed.

It´s the second major attack on this leftist myth this month!

Early this month a new book by KGB archivist Vasili Mitrokhin revealed that Allende, and other leftist leaders in Latin America received money from KGB.
This article by Juan Tamayo explains who were helped:

"• The KGB documents record actual and proposed payments to Chile's Salvador Allende totaling $420,000 both before and after his election as president in 1970.

• Costa Rica's José ''Pepe'' Figueres received $300,000 from the KGB for his 1970 presidential campaign and $10,000 afterward.

• Carlos Fonseca, founder of Nicaragua's Sandinista National Liberation Front, was ''a trusted KGB agent'' code-named GIDROLOG.

• Nicaraguan Manuel Andara y Úbeda was a KGB agent who led a group of Sandinistas tasked by Moscow in the late 1960s to scoop out the U.S. border with Mexico for possible targets for KGB sabotage teams.

• The KGB ''trained and financed'' the Sandinistas who seized the National Palace in Managua and dozens of hostages in 1978. A senior KGB official was briefed on the plan on the eve of the raid, led by Edén Pastora, also known as Commander Zero. "

It's the end to these old-time leftist myths in LA?
No. These events were not EVEN mentioned by Brazilian media.
Here in Brazil, we are still wearing Che Guevara shirts and believing in the holy santity of Salvador Allende.

The Causes of Brazil´s Corruption: Too Much State, Less Free Market

Vargas Llosa explains how corruption turned out to be a symptom of a disease (in a under-developed country suffocated by too much state), not the cause.
You can put "poverty" under the same account.

Lula's Demise

September 22, 2005
Alvaro Vargas Llosa

Brazil's President Lula da Silva is immersed in a seemingly endless corruption scandal; his once larger-than-life reputation has been reduced to tatters. The significance of this is not negligible: Lula has become an emblem of the post-Cold War left with his combination of conservative fiscal and monetary policies and big social programs targeting the poor.

A breathtaking sequence of revelations involving the government and Lula's Workers' Party—beginning with the confession by opposition legislator Roberto Jefferson that he had received bribes for his vote in Congress—has brought to the surface a vast scheme of bribes to legislators and irregular methods of party financing.

The conventional wisdom was that, despite his radical Marxist roots and occasional concessions to his political base, Lula represented a healthy move away from the old left and toward the emergence of a new model for underdeveloped nations similar to Europe's social democracy. Many thought this model would have a moderating effect on the left across the continent and hold Hugo Chávez in check.

However, Lula's capacity to reinvent the left always hinged on something more than keeping interest rates high to stem inflation, maintaining a strong currency, riding on the high prices of certain commodities, and giving cash to poor families. He could either opt for simply managing the perpetual crisis or he could try to overhaul a labyrinthine political system that benefited certain pockets of industrial and agricultural production but keeps millions of people out of the realm of opportunity. He chose the former path.

While technocrats talk about a three percent rate of economic growth for Brazil this year and an export boom that has translated into a trade "surplus" of $40 billion, Lula's voters are indignant at the corruption scandal. But the real point is that corruption has developed naturally in an environment of limited opportunities due to asphyxiating government interference. And the absence of adequate limits on the power of the political bureaucracy is in turn an incentive for corruption at the top level. The corruption of Lula's government, therefore, should be seen more as a symptom than a cause. Ranting about corruption without removing the causes will only generate further frustration. Brazilians impeached President Collor de Mello in the 1990s but failed to change a system that ensured a party like Lula's would fall into the same trap years later.

Brazil has often been a bellwether of Latin American political currents. It exemplified French-style authoritarian positivism in the early 20th century, centrally planned industrialization in the 1960s and 1970s, and democracy in the 1980s. (It was not, however, one of the leading nations in the so-called free market reform wave of the 1990s). Lula's demise is now strengthening the more radical left, which has been quick to blame what is happening on the President's "betrayal" of his Marxist origins. The rest of the Latin American left is watching.

Widespread corruption in underdeveloped countries is a symptom of the cost of the law and the weakness of the legal framework. If laws are burdensome and costly to follow, and there is no reliable system for enforcing contracts, corruption becomes a sort of insurance policy. As legal scholar Richard Posner has written, "nepotism, clientelism, and bribery become substitutes for contract when the enforcement of contract is undependable". Over an extended period of time, corruption becomes a culture.

The latest "Doing Business" report by the World Bank shows that an average domestic company with fewer than 100 employees in Brazil would have to pay 148 percent of its annual profits in order to comply with all its taxes. A medium-sized company must spend 2,600 hours just in order to pay them.

It is not surprising that regulations and taxes have taken on a life of their own in Brazil, where the structure of government includes more than 5,500 autonomous municipalities, 10 million civil servants and a multitude of supposedly decentralized but really overlapping layers of bureaucracy competing for a piece of the action. Although this labyrinth has one positive aspect—it makes centralized decisions difficult to implement—it is totally impractical for reform-minded people.

Lula thought that as long as he kept macroeconomic stability and continued with his "Bolsa Familia" program—a conditional cash transfer that gives 50 dollars to each of 7 million families in exchange for making sure their children go to school—"social justice" would flow. Judging by the lack of investment at all levels of the economy, most Brazilians clearly did not agree. Prosperity requires a massive de-politicization of the prevailing system so that entrepreneurship can flourish. In the absence of that, it is not hard to see why Lula's government became so corrupt.

Olavo de Carvalho, a Brazilian writer, recently remarked at a conference in Washington DC that "corruption is deeply rooted in the Worker's Party not as a vulgar way for personal moneymaking but as a technical instrument to erode the moral basis of the capitalistic society and fund the revolutionary strategy". How ironic that the man who was to save Latin America from old-style socialism is helping revive it.

Alvaro Vargas Llosa is a Senior Fellow and director of The Center on Global Prosperity at the Independent Institute. He is the author of Liberty for Latin America.

Anatolyi Golitsyn: For how long his (fulfilled) predictions will still be ignored?

Mark Riebling has a good site about the famous KGB's information analyst defector Anatolyi Golitsyn and his predictions.

He is the person whose insights or predictions are still one of the best sources to explain this post-communist world. From Fukuyama's "end of history" to the new world of totalitarian-muslim-sponsored-terrorism and the "capitalist" Russia and China, Golitsyn's analysis has a main role to explain the "behind-the-scene" of our time.

He predicted - with years before the facts - Perestroika, Glasnost and even Gorbachev. He wrote some books on these predictions "New Lies For Old" and "The Perestroika Deception". These books were totally ignored (the former was published in 1984!) by the information community. Only during the 90's his credibilty was restored.

But all these events - The Fall of Berlin Wall was included - were only the sign for the so called "Final Phase" in a long term KGB strategy to dominate the world, by dividing the Atlantic allies and isolating the US with the most anti-american propaganda of all time.

An excerpt:
"When the Soviet Empire collapsed in 1989, the CIA was chastised for failing to foresee the change. "For a generation, the Central Intelligence Agency told successive presidents everything they needed to know about the Soviet Union," said Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan, "except that it was about to fall apart."

"In 1982, KGB defector Anatoliy Golitsyn had submitted a top-secret manuscript to CIA. In it, he foresaw that leadership of the USSR would by 1986 "or earlier" fall to "a younger man with a more liberal image," who would initiate "changes that would have been beyond the imagination of Marx or the practical reach of Lenin and unthinkable to Stalin." The coming liberalization, Golitsyn said, "would be spectacular and impressive. Formal pronouncements might be made about a reduction in the Communist Party's role; its monopoly would be apparently curtailed.... The KGB would be reformed.

Brazilian left: from victory to defeat and to victory again

Philosopher Olavo de Carvalho has just sent me this briefing on his presentation at Atlas Economic Research. It explains the actual status of the leftist takeover in Brazil.
Enjoy it!

Brazilian left:  from victory to defeat and to victory again  


Olavo  de Carvalho*


A  brief presentation delivered at the Atlas Economic Research Foundation,  Washington D.C., September 15th  2005.


           For fifteen years the Brazilian media refused to tell the public about the "São  Paulo Forum", the controlling center of communist and pro-communist  organizations in Latin America, founded in 1990  by Fidel Castro and Luís Inácio Lula da Silva.

           Far from the public's eyes, the Forum has had time enough to prepare Lula's  ascension to the Presidency as well as to articulate it to the simultaneous  victories of the leftist parties in the neighbour countries and to the growing  power of Colombian guerillas.

           It has had also time enough to set up, under the protecting mantle of general  silence, the gigantic corruption machine that has been giving financial support  to the Brazilian Workers' Party and to other leftist organizations.

           It is not at all a coincidence that the Workers' Party politician more directly  involved in the recent corruption charges, Mr. José Dirceu, was precisely the  one that has the closest personal links to Fidel Castro and to the São Paulo  Forum. Corruption is deeply rooted in the Workers Party, not as a vulgar way for  personal moneymaking, but as a technical instrument to erode the moral basis of  capitalistic society and to fund the revolutionary strategy. These two  objectives are closely intertwined. Funded by corruption, the growth of leftist  parties strenghtens the credibility of the attacks they make against society, as  if capitalism was equally immoral without their own deliberate efforts intended  to degrade the moral standards.  

           The articulation of a variety of leftist parties in the São Paulo Forum, added  to the public's ignorance of the very existence of that organization, allows  them to follow a unified blueprint for the conquest of absolute power while at  the same time simulating a pluralism of political discourses in a normal  democratic competition.

           This shrewd strategy got to isolate the conservative parties and to deprive them  of any ideological substance, up to the point when they became inhibited to  criticize the leftist ideology as such. Some degree of leftism became the first  moral duty of every good citizen. Many conservatives turned into active allies  of the government in order to ensure themselves a humiliating political  survival. Those who had no stomach for that chose instead the strategy of  passive adaptation. They made their best to hide their convictions and to pay  large amounts of lip service to the honorableness of their adversaries' ideas.  Consistently, they tried to limit any criticisms to precise points lacking any  ideological relevance, chiefly those concerned with administrative inefficiency  and corruption, hoping these charges would so not offend any ideological  susceptibilities in the left and could perhaps obtain some support from the best  men in the left itself.

           This self-weakening strategy was condemned to failure since the beginning. It  got to destroy the conservative parties, but, when all seemed to be lost, it  suddenly turned into a mortal poison inside the government's belly. This  happened because a conservative ally of the Workers' Party, representative  Roberto Jefferson, a strange and unpredictable character, decided to commit  political suicide, confessing the crimes he and many other rightwing members of  the Parliament had comitted in exchange of government's bribes. By accusing  himself, this ambiguous type, at once a swindler and a hero, exposed the huge  government corruption machine in such a persuasive terms that nobody could any  more deny its existence.

           In the weeks that followed, the amount of attacks and evidences, including many  murder charges, grew to astronomic proportions and the government's moralistic  façade fell down at once.  

           Should we commemorate it? Of course not, because between Lula's election and the  disclosure of the government's crimes the leftist apparatus had the time and the  means to spread its agents everywhere, to tear down any consistent opposition,  to take absolute control over the judicial system, to corrupt the media, to  strenghten the Brazilian ties to Hugo Chávez and Fidel Castro and to allow the  Colombian narcoguerillas to act freely in Brazilian territory under  semi-official protection. The Workers's Party may fall, but no conservative  force will rise to its place. The sole beneficiaries of the main leftist party's  disgrace are the lesser leftist parties of the São Paulo Forum, kept and  protected as in a freezer during all these years and now ready to present  themselves to the public as the new incarnation of the highest morality.  

           In order to grasp the real intentions of these parties, you should only know  that the most promising one, the PSOL, is under the ideological guidance of Mr.  Achille Lollo, an Italian terrorist who some years ago set fire to one of his  political enemies' house in Rome, burning to death his two children. The  spiritual highness of the master is the standard for the morals of the disciple.  Look at Mr. Lollo and you will see the future of Brazil.




           If now you are kind enough to hear me a few more minutes, I will tell you what  all these things have to do with Americans.  




           Since the late Dr. Constantine Menges's warnings against the Lula-Castro-Chavez  "little axis of evil" were published in 2002, I have been expecting the American  government to take a firm stand against the rise of neocommunist parties in  Latin America and specially in my own country.  As I personally had been uncovering the growing tide of leftist arrogance, being  the last and only conservative voice in Brazilian big media, I was candid enough  to fancy that the powerful support my opinions were receiving from an  outstanding Hudson Institute scholar might be the sign of some auspicious  changing in the U. S. policy  towards Latin America. Perhaps the "scoundrel  times" when Clinton's Ambassador to  Brazil proclaimed Lula to be "the  Brazilian incarnation of the American dream" were at last approaching their  end.

           Instead, the American government went on and on dispensing a regular amount of  flattering accolades to Mr. Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, treating him as if he  were the very antidote to Hugo Chavez' revolutionary demagoguery and a champion  of capitalist democracy in the continent.  

           At the same time, American official agencies and billionaire foundations  continued to give full financial support to Brazilian leftists, allowing them to  pose as harmless reformers and to deceive Brazilian voters.  

           Under the best of disguises, these people went on to implement the blueprint for  general subversion designed by Hugo Chavez, Fidel Castro and Colombian  narcoterrorists at the annual meetings of the "São Paulo Forum".

           For Brazilian lovers of freedom, America's unbroken support for Lula  and his Worker's Party was superlatively disappointing. As the reality of a  communist conspiracy in Latin America was  concealed from the public opinion for more than a decade by Brazilian big media,  the whole country fell under Lula's spell, believing him to be some kind of  naïve Christian populist, too much unsophisticated to be conceivably mixed to a  Macchiavellian plot. The few intellectuals and journalists who knew the truth  were isolated, powerless, unable to spread it among the general public. I payed  a high price for trying to do so as a press columnist, suffering insults and  death threats for years and finally being fired from two newspapers and a  magazine. The political inspiration of the dismissals was too visible to deceive  my readers, who sent hundreds of letters protesting against the suppression of  my columns. But the letters, of which I kept copies, were never published. The  concealing of truth is never perfect unless it conceals itself.  

           Meanwhile, I and some of my colleagues did our best to use the internet as a  means to fight the massive suppression of truth. But we were few and devoid of  any financial support. We payed from our own pockets to keep the standards of  real journalism alive, while a continuous cash flow from state banks and private  corporations, both from Brazil and abroad, allowed communist and pro-communist  websites, newspapers, magazines and TV shows to flourish everywhere. When,  against all probabilities, our penniless electronic newspaper "Mídia Sem  Máscara" (Unmasked Media) was chosen by popular vote to win the second prize in  a national contest against its millionaire leftist competition, some of us could  not avoid tears dropping from our eyes. But it was only a moral victory, with no  practical results whatsoever. We were still so powerless that it was  easy for our foes to deny publicly not only the communist continental strategy  but the very existence of the "Sao Paulo Forum". They were strong enough to  triumph over truth even after we published in "Midia Sem Mascara" the complete  proceedings of the twelve meetings of the Forum, the full proof of the intimate  connections between the Worker's Party and Colombian  narcoterrorists.

           Truth was everywhere downtrodden, derided, humiliated. Rejected and isolated in  our own country, we turned our eyes to America, excited by George W. Bush's  second electoral victory and by Dr. Menges' precise diagnosis of the  situation.  

           America was our last hope,  and America failed us.  

           Now that the deep corruption in Lula's administration became visible to the eyes  of everybody and that Brazilian people are conscious of the awful trap set up to  catch them, it is due time for the American government to reassess the gain it  obtained from appeasing Lula and disregarding the true friends of America in  Brazil. President Bush is now seen by every Brazilian voter as the main foreign  supporter of the dirtiest and most despicable administration we ever had.  Leftist parties, aware that it will be impossible to save Lula's reputation, are  managing to associate the government debauchery to its American links, in order  to blame the "right" for the crimes comitted by the left. It is the most  creative strategy of dammage administration ever seen, and it is working. For a  whole decade, many Brazilians hated America because they loved Lula. Now  they hate America because they hate Lula.  

        Perhaps  there is still time to change the course of events, but action must be quick.  The crimes of the Brazilian government are neither isolated facts nor the late  results of Lula's mythical "turning to the right",  but the natural  implementation of the Worker's Party plans for total dominination, devised in  close association with Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez. Why should  America once more pay for the  misdeeds of its foes? The American government has to chose between telling the  truth or falling victim to a lie.
