Lula da Silva's 41th thief is revealed
Federal Police has made the job. He was officially indicted for several crimes, according to the (it is ironic) Federal News Agency:
"The former Finance minister, Antônio Palocci, was indicted yesterday (27) for four crimes related to irregularities committed in urban sanitation contracts when he was mayor of Ribeirão Preto (SP).
He will have to answer to charges of money-laundering, conspiracy, misappropriation, and misrepresentation. The investigations into the period of his mayoralty are being conducted by the São Paulo Civil Police.
Palocci is already on the hook in the Federal Police for four other crimes, which he allegedly committed in his term as minister: abuse of official privilege, violation of banking secrecy, prevarication, and calumnious assault."
This is the real face of this government; corruption, treason and crimes.
But, against the common sense, Lula still ahead on the elections polls.
Brazil is not a very easy understable country - even to their citizens...

Lula da Silva and the Forty Thieves
Federal Prosecutor Antonio Fernando Souza did not ease things for president Lula da Silva.
Despite all the rumours that all the accusations made on the congressmen special commission could turn into a 'pizza' (we call 'pizza' in Brazil when suspect ions were not investigated and the supposed criminals were not charged).
He formally accused forty members of former Lula da Silva's aides of being part of a 'criminal gang'.
Major weekly magazine VEJA wrote in its 04/16 issue "The question before was: He knew and was "absent without leave" or he is a moron president, wandering in the presidential palace while his intimate friends planned the most profitable ways to assault people's money? After Federal Prosecutor's claims Lula da Silva is in an uncomfortable position of ought to explain how could be set such criminal organized network under his nose."
It's quite a record to be announced on Guiness Book!
Lula da Silva and his party, Worker's Party, were the direct benefiters from the criminals acts.
But it seems that something is missing. All these accusations are not only from a regular Latin America corruption abstract. In LA history , corruption was a side effect of young countries without strong institutions to brake it. Greedy individuals disguised as Motherland saviors took the power just for their own good.
PT (worker's party) corruption has another origin: it is linked to the left takeover in LA ruled by Sao Paulo Forum and its leaders (Fidel Castro & Lula as the brains and Chavez & Farc as the hands).
It's the Gramscian left Revolution: the use of democratic expedients and institutions to kill democracy and to build up a socialist new "people's" regime.
"Veja" Magazine, for example, has published information about illegal Cuban money used in Lula's 2002 presidential campaign.
It was published that former economy minister Palocci was the founder of a pro-Farc committee - even acted as Farc's unofficial agent in Brazil - when he was Ribeirao Preto's Mayor.
Two former Lula's assessors were even killed: Toninho do PT and Celso Daniel got murder under suspect conditions.
It's just a matter of linking the dots.
But why are they so afraid of?
Has Lula da Silva and the Forty Thieves money enough to buy consciousnesses?

Pius XII considered resigning to thwart Nazis
Apr. 13 (CWNews.com) - Pope Pius XII was aware of Hitler's plan to kidnap him, and prepared a letter of resignation to take effect if he was captured by the Nazis, according to the author of a new German book on the wartime Pontiff.
The authors of the new book, Werner Kaltefleiter and Hans Peter Oschwald, say that Pope Pius had signed the resignation letter, stipulating that he would revert to the status of a cardinal if he was taken hostage, the Italian ANSA news agency reports. Excerpts from their forthcoming book have appeared in the German daily Bild.
Father Peter Gumpel, a Jesuit historian who is working on the cause for beatification of Pope Pius XII, confirms that the Pontiff had tentative plans to resign in case he was captured. While skeptical about the existence of a signed resignation letter, Father Gumpel believes that a "verbal agreement" had been reached to allow for a change in leadership at the Vatican in his absence.
In their book, Spione im Vatikan, Kaltefleiter and Oschwald explore espionage efforts against the Vatican from the beginning of World War II to the present day. The book gives special attention to the efforts by Hitler's Nazis and by later Communist regimes to undermine the power of the Church. The authors say that Hitler enthusiastically authorized a raid on the Vatican, to take place in 1943, with the objective of kidnapping the Pope.
Hitler's implacable hostility toward the wartime Pontiff, and the determination of Pope Pius to thwart the kidnapping plans, contrast sharply with the charges made by critics who say that the Pope was too willing to tolerate the Nazi regime.

Brazil and Terror: Government denies, Money Talks
The source of the money?
The so-called tri-border lawness region of Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay.
When U.S. first speculated about the links between this region and Arab terrorist cells, it was angerly denied by our local authorities. They said it was another imperialist lie against a peaceful country and this region was wrongly liked to terror only because there´s a huge community of arab immigrants living there.
It was a case of pure 'racism', they said.
But now New York Post Online Edition informs the truth: "$3 billion in suspicious funds were generated, through criminal enterprises, in the lawless tri-border region of Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay.
Over a two-year period, the $3 billion was sent to the New York bank account by a shadowy money-transmittal company in Montevideo, Uruguay.
The money then flowed into bank accounts in the Middle East locations including Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, Beirut, Lebanon, and Ramallah in the Palestinian territories."
The real source of this money is an extra-national entity called Foro de São Paulo (São Paulo Forum - read this article from brazilian philosopher Olavo de Carvalho on the subject), controled by left organizations from legal ones (leftist parties) to illegal ones (FARC). The illegal are the ones that supplies the fuel to their activities.
Since the old drug-baron-like Pablo Escobar were put in jail or eliminated - and the fall of Soviet Empire - , the drug-traffic started to be controlled by marxist revolutionary armies.
Chavez is increasing his help to the group goal´s too, since he has taken power in Venezuela.
Unfortunately Latin America had its choices: to grow up freely with democracy and free market (thus erradicating the poverty) or to follow old-fashioned leaders in their road to hell, increasing class-war inside the continent while help others to fight the enemy. But the people? It´s fundamental to them that poverty sitll high because there will be no "revolution" possible under wealthy conditions..

Lula´s former economy minister - Palocci - personally ordered the breaking of the bank secrecy
Palocci, is proven now, personally ordered Francenildo´s bank account secrecy breaking.
Palocci, that in his final letter to the government claimed that "never had participated, or demanded, or operational participation, in anything related to the bank account secrecy breaking of anyone..", has got with his pants off - literally.
It is known that he even lied to the President. And it seemed that was this particular lying that made him out of the government.
Until the day of his firing, he had lied before a Parliament Special Comittee, to the press and to the people. This series of lies did not move the president to decide to fire him.
This is the real status of this "ethical" government from Worker´s Party.
Here is the new developments of Palocci´s affair: He will be investigated by the Federal Police and be charged of two or three different crimes.
The results? Until all the links of this government with Fidel, Foro de Sao Paulo and Chavez do not fully arise to the public opinion, any measures like Palocci´s firing will be something as "sacrificial goat" to keep their plans on the run.
Here the news - in portuguese:
VEJA on-line: Federal Police will charge Palocci"Two witnesses confirm the order to break the bank secrecy.
03 de Abril de 2006
Federal Polic must put Palocci (former economy minister) in charge of the house caretaker Francenildo Costa´s bank secrecy breaking, that accuses Palocci of being on of the most frequent guest of the so-called "Ribeirao Preto´s Republic House" with his acessors charged of corruption.Palocci may have to answer to three different crimes."
