45 Goals of Communism...Not olnly In America

The names have been changed "to protect the guilty", but communism still communism in essence.
This 45 goals defined on a long gone year of 1963 is still valid. Here in Brazil I can really feel that ALL the items are on-the-run right now.
The only thing that changed was the name. Trade it for "Liberalism", "New-Liberalism", "Political Correctness", "Gramscian Revolution", "World Government", "Social-Democracy", "Convergence"... But all are just disguises for the same-old Communism.

What could we do ?

45 Goals of Communism in America
Thursday, January 10, 1963
Mr. HERLONG. Mr. Speaker, Mrs. Patricia Nordman of De Land,Fla., is an ardent and articulate opponent of communism, and until recently published the De Land Courier, which she dedicated to the purpose of alerting the public to the dangers of communism in America.
At Mrs. Nordman's request, I include in the RECORD, under unanimous consent, the following "Current Communist Goals," which she identifies as an excerpt from "The Naked Communist," by Cleon Skousen:
1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.
2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.
3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.
4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.
5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.
6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.
7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.
8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev's promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.
9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.
10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.
11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)
12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.
13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.
14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.
15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.
16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.
17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers' associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
18. Gain control of all student newspapers.
19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.
20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policymaking positions.
21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.
22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to "eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms."
23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. "Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art."
24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them "censorship" and a violation of free speech and free press.
25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.
26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as "normal, natural, healthy."
27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with "social" religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a "religious crutch."
28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of "separation of church and state."
29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.
30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the "common man."
31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the "big picture." Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.
32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture--education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.
33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.
34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.
35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.
36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.
37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.
38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].
39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.
40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.
41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.
42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use ["]united force["] to solve economic, political or social problems.
43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.
44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.
45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction [over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction] over nations and individuals alike.

Chávez anti-american rethoric in its peak..Or "Fidelito" gone nuts!

That hardcore-leftism is a kind spirit disease, there´s no doubt about it. But this is ridiculous.
Read exactly what is the actual status of Chávez anti-american rethoric.
From the blog The Last Amazon: "With an audience of ministers, army officers and local officials chuckling, Chavez remarked on how he would target U.S. soldiers with arrows covered with curare, an Amazon Indian poison made from plants. 'I am going to practice with a bow and arrow. If we have to put a few arrows into any invading gringo, then you'll be done in 30 seconds, my dear gringo,' Chavez said pointing to his neck during his regular Sunday television broadcast."

It seems to me that it could be:

- Just exaggerated populist rhetoric made with an eye on the presidential elections, cause Chávez have worn out all the 'regular' left-wing populist rethoric phrases. Venezuela just bought hundreds of weapons recently, they don´t have to fight with bows and arrows...
- He believes in fact that he´s "Fidelito" and Venezuela could be the next "Pigs´ Bay". If so, he is just demented.

- He thinks he´s William Tell, trying to put an apple on Bush´s head..

- That the effect of Brazil´s carnival on Chávez´ mind was enormous. He won the Brazil´s carnival contest in Rio with a Bolivarian theme. It seems that he is still on the carnival mood. And all the "bows and arrows" are just some disguises ripped-off from some brazilian "carnival school"...

Palocci is out. But what about the boss??

The pressure went too high.
After denying categorically that he had been at the "Ribeirao Preto Republic´s house" in Brasilia-DC (where besides plotting and sharing assaults on the Brazilian State to benefit the Party´s  structure  they enjoy the company of some whores), had been unmasked by the house´s caretaker Francenildo, another great crookery from him was discovered today.

The economy minister demanded himself the bank account secrecy´s leakage from Francenildo. Yesterday the (former) bank´s president (Jorge Mattoso) revealed that just after taking Francenildo´s balance sheet he personally gave it to Palocci.

Yesterday, with more this one disclosure of his activites, he finally quit.

But is not the end.
Some version leaked from Federal Police say that what what Mattoso and Palocci did was not against the law. Crime was characterized when the leakage was sent to  "Epoca" magazine.
This is one more attempt to lessen Palocci and his affiliates´ crimes. Breaking the secrecy is the breaking the secrecy or it was supposed to be  opened to  any  thief-as-economy-minister in charge???

But another claim is starting to be heard among the opposition´s most prominent spokesperson: Lula must be impeached. Right now.

I agree. But all the crimes must be punished, it musn´t be just another political trial. Must be a real one.

Lula was jailed (briefly) once when he was just a trade union leader, back in the seventies (before he got brainwashed by the left that came back to Brazil after the 'amnesty' processes of  1979). For all he did, or left others do, it´s time to seriously consider this possibility again...

"The Worldwide Communist Federation"- A Warning to the Democratic World

This is the most impressive part of the chapter named "The Final Phase" from the book "New Lies For Old", an exercise on forecasting the future of communism using a new methodology created by the author Anatoliy Golitsyn – a defector from KGB intelligence office.

Golitsyn wrote too books. This one and "Perestroika Deception" both dedicated to show how the Western World is in danger in denying that communism is still alive.

Hundreds of his predictions on this book – published in 1984 – turned out to be true, from the fall of Berlin's Wall, the emergence of a leader like Gorbachev and his economic reformation in the Soviet world to the communism fall in 1989. Golitsyn has proved correct in 140 out of 145 predictions.

Can his other predictions turn to be true? Until now he proved with tons of references that communism is just playing dead until what he called "The Final Phase" described here.

I made some comments in it. Enjoy. And pray.

"The Worldwide Communist Federation

Integration of the communist bloc would follow the lines envisaged by Lenin when Third Communist International was founded. That is to say, the Soviet Union and China would not absorb one another or other communist states. All the countries of the European and Asiatic communist zones, together with new communist states in Europe and the Third World, would join a supranational economic and political communist federation.* Soviet-Albanian, Soviet-Yugoslav, Soviet-Romanian disputes and differences would be resolved in the wake, or possibly in advance of, Sino-Soviet reconciliation, The political, economic, military, diplomatic, and ideological cooperation between all the communist states, at present partially concealed, would become clearly visible.** There might even be public acknowledgment that the splits and disputes were long-term disinformation operations that successfully deceived the 'imperialist' powers. The effect on the Western morale can be imagined.

In the new worldwide communist federation the present different brands of communism would disappear, to be replaced by a uniform, rigorous brand of Leninism. The process would be painful. Concessions made in the name of economic and political reform would be withdrawn ***. Religious and intellectual dissent would be suppressed. Nationalism and all other forms of genuine opposition would be crushed. Those who had taken advantage of détente to establish friendly Western contacts would be rebuked or persecuted like those Soviet officers who worked with the allies during the Second World War. In new communist states – for example, in France, Italy and the Third World – the 'alienated classes' would be reeducated. Show trials of 'imperialist agents' would be staged.

Action would be taken against nationalist and social democratic leaders, party activists. Former civil servants, officers, and priests. The last vestiges od private enterprise and ownership would be obliterated. Nationalization of industry, finance, and agriculture would be completed. In fact, all the totalitarian features, and agriculture from the early stages of the Soviet revolution and the postwar Stalinist years in Eastern Europe might be expected to reappear, specially in those countries newly won for communism. Unchallenged and unchallengeable, a true communist monolith would dominate the world".


* "The Worldwide Communist Federation" is the role reserved to United Nations and its intention to create an "World Government" in a "New World Order". It is clearly visible right now.

** UN and here in Latin America the so called "São Paulo Forum" are the most visible faces of it. "Forum" controls most of the 'democratic' governments in Latin America, from Chávez in Venezuela to Lula da Silva in Brazil, with the blessing from Fidel Castro and other leninist-marxist terrorist groups like Colombia's FARC.

*** Thianen Square Massacre revisited. The crushing of the Chinese rebellion in 1989 was just an exercise to see if any western powers would interfere. Nothing happened then and China became, less a decade later, the country with the higher development index in the world, with the help from billions of dollars from the west. But the capitalist adventure in China will soon be over and I dare that no one will interfere again.

"Deception Game" Over for Mr. Ladislav Bittman (former communist agent) - But not for the Western World

Here's a interesting story on the former Czech spy agent Ladislav Bittman. I wrote some articles on his disinformation tasks in Latin America and the recent re-opening of a murder case in France, reported on his book "Deception Game". He defected to USA after the smashing of the so-called "Prague Spring" by the soviets.

'''I refused to serve under the new regime for the Russians. So I could either land in prison or go to the coal mines," said Martin-Bittman.

Fearing for his life, he fled to the United States embassy in West Germany. After asking for political asylum, Martin-Bittman was held for a year in Washington, where he was debriefed by government intelligence and changed his name to Lawrence Martin for protection, according to the Prague Post. (He has since hyphenated his last name to become Martin-Bittman). In Prague, the government sentenced him to death'.

Lawrence/Ladislav is the author of another very good book on KGB disinformation - " KGB and the Soviet Disinformation" - that provides solid evidences on the effective communist support to the "Iranian Revolution" in 1979 and the subsequent manipulation of muslim radicals against the west by the same communist manouvres through KGB and its satellites.  I recommended it to all who wants to understand the present events in Europe

Brazil: Economy Minister Palocci finally unmasked. What´s next?

Despite all polls – that insist to give the first rank on 2006 elections run to Lula da Silva – the government of Lula da Silva is fading fast.

His "premier" - in Brazil, after decades of high inflation we consider economy minister almost as our "premier" -, Antônio Palocci, the double-faced minister, is in his final days at Lula´s government.

I posted here an article proving his liasons with drug-dealing-terrorist army from Colombia – FARC – some months ago.

How can the higher position of the economy ministry of a country like Brazil could be filled by a person that´s a friend of terrorists? Ala, not just a friend, but the unofficial FARC´s representative in Brazil.

Now , new evidences on the character of Palocci arose: He is seriously involved in the corruption scandals that shocked the public opinion in Brazil.

Palocci made part of a mob-group called "Ribeirao Preto´s Republic" - a bunch of former Palocci collaboratives when he was Ribeirao Preto´s Mayor – five years ago. These people has been accused to have received money from Cuba and bribed enterprise-owners to contribute to Workers Party election's forbidden funds.

This group used to secretly (not so secretly at all) meet each other on a rented mansion in Brasilia (Federal Capital) to plan new strikes and to share some of the results of their attacks – doing orgy parties with alcohol, high-class whores and viagra.

All seems to be in perfect order until now. Palocci bluffly denied all the accusations before a coward opposition bench that were so eager to "protect" the economic policy (that is the same from former Fernando Henrique Cardoso – unpayable high taxes that generates sub-minor development & employment indexes). But something gone wrong. The mansion´s caretaker an eighteen-year-old and honest man called Francenildo Santos Costa decided to speak out how many times he saw Palocci at that house, always in company of girls and his comrades.

What happened after was one of the most significant signals of a totalitarian bias from Lula da Silva´s government: the minister and a senator from Worker´s Party got the Supreme Court under their kneels, when they got a motion to prohibit Francelino to speak before a congressmen special comission. Yes, government has Supreme Court in its hands. But the wizardry worked only partially: Francenildo could speak for about 40 minutes but it was enough to prove Palocci was lying not once but everytime he went before the congress comission on the subject.

But the story went on: Some government troskyites inside the a State Bank & Savings – where Francenildo has a bank account – broke his account secrecy, found some strange money in it - passed the story to a friendly weekly magazine called "Época" that published an article on the internet with the suspicion that Francenildo has received money (obviously from the opposition ) to throw false accusations against Palocci. It must be noted that "Época" magazine is owned by Globo TV network, that not even mentioned a single word about Francenildo testimonial in its dominant TV news "Jornal Nacional".

But this second attempt exploded on the government hands: Francenildo prove that the he received money from his bilogical father that refuses to do a DNA test.

Francenildo´s life got overexposed by the media on a detail level - unimaginable in a decent country. Do you imagine what is the reason to Supreme Court's ban on Francenildo´s special commission speech? They say that it was to "protect Palocci´s private life" that could be destroyed by the revelations of his behavior inside that house – he is married. It´s unbelievable that the government in its hurry to protect Palocci did not give the slightest attention to civil rights and to protect the private life of Francenildo and his family.

But now it's the government that has to explain who obtained the illegal account balance sheet of Francenildo's account.

Two questions:

When the opposition will open the eyes and start to fight this government for good? And when Palocci will quit...

Only time will tell.

Venezuela: Hard times for democracy and freedom

Here in Brazil, when we think about Chávez, two kind of thoughts come to our minds:
a) For the left he is a real hero. He is all that Lula da Silva must be doing if he didn´t turned to sell himself to "neo-liberalism"
b) To midclass people, Chávez is just a populist clown that only deserve attention as carnival theme.

But reality bites. Aleksander Boyd, a Venezuelan citizen that lives in UK has an impressive website called where he details the present status of the so-called "Bolivarian revolution".
In fact he is on the spot right now, because he has discovered that the favorite Chávez' pollster , the one he claimed to be impartial because it was north-american - curiosly the one that shows a strong Chàvez' acceptance among the Venezuelan voters - is in fact owned by "chavista" people.
Read all in here.

Boyd also showed the atomic link between Venezuela and North Korea.

To fight this, Venezuela government is accusing anyone that exposes its lies as traitors back-funded by American government.
Boyd mocks about theses false accusations creating "The AngloVenezuelan Connection" - a fictionous group of Chávez opposers, fund backed by tenths of thousand of "imperialist" money.

He sent me this message: "The more bloggers/journalist denounce these threats against freedom of expression the better. Note that I uncovered the duplicitous nature and conflict of interest of a chavista pollster that does work in Venezuela, Peru, Chile, Bolivia... The Venezuelan problem has crossed the borders of our country and is affecting the whole region. If we don't respond as a united front, we shall pay the consequences."

I cannot deny it. The Left Holy "Trinity" (Fidel-Chávez-Lula) is controlling Latin America without being opposed. Fidel and Chávez on the front, with the help of Lula, a fifth-column posing as a peacemaker, democrat and Bush's friend, ready to calm down Chávez when necessary.

For my part, you can consider this blog as another one involved in "The (vast) AngloVenezuelan Connection"- (TAC) too!

The Real Secret of Red-is-Back Mountain

Sometimes is hard to keep your hardness. It is hard to keep your joie-de-vivre when you have so many enemies do defeat: George W. Bush, Condoleeza or even the enemies inside like trade union strikers, reporters and bloggers.
But sometimes you need some tenderness.
You need someone who fully understands you the way you are. When you find him, you don't worry to show your affection in public.
Here's a photographic prove of one of these moments...
But take care, Chavito, cause the man in olive outfit has some Jupiter-like taste: he uses to eat his children... (see what happened to Allende...).

Olavo de Carvalho and the Neocommunist rise in Latin America

Brazilian philosopher Olavo de Carvalho is living in the USA since 2005. There, he is making a huge effort to try change the US view towards Latin America and the key role of Brazil's leader Lula da Silva in this - according to his words - "Neocommunist rise". Here is the excerpts of a presentation delivered at the Intelligence Summit 2006 - Arlington, VA, Feb. 17th -- 20th:

Excerpts: "As to Lula himself, the fact that once in charge he kept his predecessor's economic policy seemed to many people in the USA an evidence that he was a changed man, that he was no longer a political partner to Hugo Chavez and Fidel Castro. But if the goals and the strategy of a ruler could be grasped from his economic policy alone, Vladimir I. Lenin would have been reputed a Russian forerunner of Margaret Thatcher."

Porto Alegre is a shelter for leftist saboteurs

Porto Alegre is the city I live in.
For four years, unfortunately, it became worldwide known as the capital of World Social Forum. During the Forum - a kind of Carnival of the left - many sabotage acts took place, like McDonald´s invasions (!), invasion and destruction of GMO (genetically modified organisms) field research with the help from French agitator José Bové and occurrences alike.

When WSF went to Venezuela, we - the peaceful inhabitants of this city - believed we could face better summer days here.

But let me appoint that it was odd for me that despite all those events cited above - that upsetted too many people like me - Porto Alegre´s mayor and Hotel entrepreneurs here missed WSF a lot when it left Porto Alegre to India and Venezuela. They said it brought  "tourists" and  money to the city.  It is strange to label a bunch of agitators, saboteurs,  anti-democratic  thugs  or just  "libertarian" people as "tourists".

Putting this way, it seems that the city mayor is very concerned to achieve some economic profit from the WSF - no matter the nature of it - because the huge publicity that is gained along the years. They say that because of WSF "Porto Alegre is becoming worldwide known as the capital of diversity and multiculturalism".

But it is sad that for the other 355 days of the year they never work to transform  Porto  Alegre  a better  place  for  economic development.  Yes.  Porto Alegre is a city with some of the highest taxes in the country. The results of this suicidal policy is that the unemployment rate here is  higher  than  the average. So the prices of food and public transportation.

But it seems that this "worldwide fame" of Porto Alegre, not as a place to visit as a tourist, but a shelter to all kind of saboteurs and agitators is charging its price.

Another international event is going on here: a United Nations conference on agrarian reform. Guess what happened yesterday?
This is what Reuters  informed "about 2,000 protesters on Wednesday invaded a plantation in southern Brazil owned by Aracruz, the world's biggest producer of bleached eucalyptus pulp, and caused what the company said was millions of dollars of damage and losses."

Via Campesina and Landless Workers are responsible for this. The reason? Aracruz according to them is turning my state, Rio Grande do Sul into a kind of "green desert" because of the eucalyptus "plantation".

The worst of all is that they used poor people to do the dirty job. They puppeteered hundreds of women - yesterday was the "Woman's international day" (another deception from leftist movement to create and raise the society inner struggle between groups and genders)- to gain access to the pulp plant.

The result: Aracruz is suspending a billion dollar budget project here in my state.

Counter actions? None. But what can we expect from a government like this, a close friend of Fidel, Chávez and Landless Workers? Nothing.

If even U.S. considers Lula as a friend that can help Bush to calm down Chávez, it's clear that the game is about to be lost.

Porto Alegre is not the "Capital of Diversity".

Definetely, "Shelter of Saboteurs" is a better title for it.

Cold War murder investigated...

This is interesting because cites a former communist-Czech agent, Ladislav Bittman, whom after many attempts I could hardly obtained a laconic confirmation about a disinformation operation in Brazil (read here) - the author of the book which upon the accusations are based on (The Deception Game).

Two thoughts on the subject:
First, it seems that somebody is finally reading these old-cold-war files and trying to re-stablish justice. Second, it seems that Bittman´s auto-imposed retirement (he is now a painter) and his silence (tireness?) about those facts will soon be over.

People with the authority of Mr. Bittman , like a few others like Mitrokhin and Golitsyn, has the evidence of what was really in stake on those crucial cold-war years. In our time, when we are surrounded by an almost canine anti-americanism, these evidences are critical to understand who is who. These people must be always (unfortunately Mr. Mitrokhin passed away last year) ready to help to uncover the truth. They cannot deny their past.
And I think that books are not enough, specially in a country like Brazil, where this kind of book will never be published, while any scrap from Michael Moore is widely accepted as truth.

But here is the news.

Court returns case of murder from 1957 for further investigation - Prague Daily Monitor: "Court returns case of murder from 1957 for further investigation

Prague, March 8 (CTK) - The Prague City court will return the case of an almost 50-year-old murder of a French official, allegedly committed by two former communist secret police (StB) officers for further investigation so that more evidence is gathered, judge Hana Hrncirova told CTK today.

The accused, Milan Michel and Stanislav Tomes, are suspected of having sent a parcel with a bomb to Andre Tremeaud, then prefect of Strasbourg. The explosion then killed Tremeaud´s wife.
The StB´s participation in the Strasbourg explosion was disclosed by Ladislav Bittman,an ex-StB officer who emigrated to the US in 1968, in his book The Deception Game that appeared in 1972.

Brazil: "Carnival" of the Left

This past month of february a lot of significant facts happened here in Brazil. Significant to show how deep we are into the cultural "red tide" that is drowning us.

February is the "Carnival" month. Time to get loose. But the cultural leftist fight still strong, even on this "party time" period.

Here's a brief description of what happened:

Preface: The Bigger band and a the biggest chaos in Rio

Rolling Stones made a big show on the Copacabana beach. It was free and around 1,2M people went to see Jagger and his band play "Sympathy for the Devil". While mainstream media reported the concert as "peaceful", they hid events that firemen quoted as "a hell": more than 600 people were attended by them and 90% were cases of alcoholic comma as reported by this. 28 people got drowned and three people got stabbed too.
In Rio, at the time, it was reported that people were beheaded during drug-dealer war in the "favelas"(poor people barrios). The reaction from common people when the saw the scene was that it was becoming more and more "regular" in Rio these days. Schocking. A hell indeed.

Second Part: Bono and his "pacifism"

U2 was the second part of the show. They came to Brazil for two concerts in Sao Paulo. Bono, before these concerts met president Lula da Silva and said he is one of his "heroes". Bono seemed not to read anything about the huge corruption wave inside Lula's government, its anti-americanism and its ties with Cuba and Hugo Chávez. But it seemed to be enough even for U2 fans. During the concert Bono received many disapproval signs from the crowd, specially when he cited President Lula and the Brazilian Federal Capital, Brasilia. Bono even donated a guitar for the "Zero-Hunger" federal program. This program is known here as just pure propaganda, with no results at all until now.

Intermezzo: Lula and Chávez cited as World Peace Nobel Prize nominees

Time for laugh. This was a joke for all real democrats and the rest of free world. But it was true.

Final Chapter: Che Guevara, Bolivar and Hugo Chávez won the Carnival contest in Rio

In Rio there is a contest for choose the better "samba school" of the carnival parade. "Vila Izabel" is one of the biggest samba schools from Rio and one of the traditional team. They received millions from PDVSA (Venezuela's oil company) to show off a theme called "Soy Loco por ti America" - a song with this name was created by the Brazilian composer Caetano Veloso as a homage to Che Guevara when he died in the 60's - a "Bolivarian Revolution" theme indeed. They won the contest as the "better" samba school of the year. Even Chávez himself was expected to appear during the parade. Link:

Georgian Scientist Claims Bird Flu Virus Could Be Soviet Biological Weapon - NEWS - MOSNEWS.COM

Georgian Scientist Claims Bird Flu Virus Could Be Soviet Biological Weapon - NEWS - MOSNEWS.COM:
"The H5N1 bird flu virus, which is dangerous for humans, might have been artificially created, Georgian biologist Dmitry Kipiani said on Georgian Imedi radio on Monday.

“We cannot be certain about this but there is some circumstantial evidence, including the unsolved murders of renowned micro-biologists in some countries,” he was quoted by Interfax as saying.

The former Soviet Union developed biological weapons for decades. “This information is not a secret, it can be found on the Internet,” he said.

The bird flu virus is far more lethal than the SARS virus that struck Asia last year and could unleash a pandemic that could kill as many as 50 million people, the World Health Organization says."

Thanks for Perilous Times for this link
