Brazil Current Ambassador Discusses Bolsonaro Victory and What It Means….

Buried underneath mountains of domestic distractions this week is the story of Brazilian populist Jair Bolsonaro winning the presidential election.  Brazil has been heavily corrupted by communist ideologues for decades; Bolsonaro’s victory is a rebuke to government constraints over liberty, and an actual  thunder-shock to the political system.

The current Brazilian Ambassador to the United States, Sergio Amaral, discusses his perspectives on what President-elect Jair Bolsonaro means to the future of the region.

.

President Bolsonaro will likely be a key ally in the geopolitical battle against Xi Jinping.

    It is very important the US has great relations with Brazil. Brazil has tremendous resources and potentially a crucial cog in creating a powerful economic power for the Western Hemisphere.

      President Trump is a man being a servant of God. He has God’s anointing, and will continue to have His blessing and protection as long as he maintains that servant attitude. The swamp rats have no understanding of this, of course, but the hate-filled demonrats certainly know it. They are fighting for their lives.

    That was a very interesting interview. He had to maintain Ambassador speak, but he clued in a few things. The President Elect, like VSGPT, is following the law of the country. They have Govt corruption but he’s letting the Judicial system handle it (50 indicted). He may become a very important ally in the near future. This country is on the cusp of making itself great again.

    Honestly, the part about the ChiComs gave me the heeby jeebies.

    This has the potential to be a huge win for Brazil and for South American in general. Amazing to me that countries can look at the successful example of Chile versus all of the socialist failures and think that doubling down on corrupt socialism is the way to go.

    This is also a great place where a trade agreement beneficial to both Brazil and the US might serve to support relations and give us more influence in South America for the good

          LOL!

          But seriously, Chile has flirted continuously with socialism after every step of weakening from the Pinochet years. The left still has a strong grip using typical communist tools – protests, strikes, and MOB ACTIONS.

          Michelle Bachelet (last president) was a center left Merkeloid who I only trusted to slow down a return to socialism so as not to get caught, not to avoid the socialist trap yet again. The new guy, Piñera, is more conservative, thank goodness. Hopefully he will turn things around again.

          If our VSGPOTUS can rebuild the conservative brand with Bolsonaro and Piñera, it would go a long way toward keeping CHINA from doing to South America what it is doing to Africa.

            We, and in like manner, the World writ large, need to excise Leftism in all its forms, perhaps using RICO. No ideology has ever plagued the Globe and shed blood like Socialism and its Spawn.

            It is Anti-Human across the board and has no legitimacy that merits tolerance of its many murderous manifestations.

            That said, part of the reason I love the thought of colonizing the cosmos is that this rock is not only fragile, but unstable as Hell. Perhaps because so much of Humanity has embraced Hell.

            God help us all.

    It’s the need for a new “canal.” Even Panamax isn’t big enough for the new Rhode Island-sized container ships China has on the ways. Those ships require a strait, not a canal. Removing most of El Salvador and parts of Guatemala and Honduras would do the trick. Just have to help the Central Americans in the way of the “canal” get out of the way first by sending them you know where. The Chinese are nothing if not humanitarian.

    • There has been a ‘new canal’ in the works and plans for several years. It connects the Pacific to Lake Nicaragua and then continues on the widened river that borders Nicaragua and Costa Rica eastward to the Atlantic. Chicoms and Nicacoms have been dancing together on this for several years to be the New Canal.

      Hizbullah꞉ Iran’s Henchmen in Brazil

      …While the outward posture of Shia leaders broadcasts an ecumenical message of tolerance and dialogue with Catholicism, Latin America’s dominant faith, the modus operandi behind closed doors is militant indoctrination.

      One such example is the Boy Scouts attached to Shia mosques. These groups have the outward appearances of innocent youth movements, imparting a social conscience to new generations. In fact, they are a mirror image of Hezbollah’s Mahdi Scouts, are led by Lebanese instructors who do not hide their sympathy for Hezbollah, and are supervised by Wehbe, the U.S.-sanctioned Hezbollah cleric.

      Images of the Scout groups show members enacting military drills during May 25 celebrations—Resistance Day in Lebanon’s calendar, marking the date of Israel’s 2000 withdrawal from South Lebanon. During Ashura ceremonies last October, Scouts and their instructors at the Mesquita do Brás in São Paulo were wearing Hezbollah T-shirts showing its logo and the Ashura 2015 logo designed by Hezbollah’s media relations department.

      The cult of martyrdom is also prevalent. In June 2014, the Imam Ali mosque in Curitiba hosted a well-attended memorial service for a young Hezbollah fighter killed in Syria in March 2014. His Brazilian uncle, clad in a Hezbollah scarf, led the memorial, exalting the fallen youth as a role model.

      Community members routinely post photographs of the Brazilian flag juxtaposed with the Hezbollah logo, and photos of young Hezbollah men in South Lebanon proudly holding the same flag. Hezbollah T-shirts can even be purchased online for thirty Brazilian reais, or less than $10.…

    The toughest part of the new Brazilian President’s job will be dealing with a population expecting hand outs. It will take major efforts to re-instill self reliance and responsibility after so many year of leftist indoctrination. If he pulls it off, it will open up a new era in South America.

    Best to reserve judgment on Bolsonaro, while hoping for the best.

    Bolsonaro presumably has had a trial-by-fire, assassination-style, which is even more traumatic than Trump’s experience with the left-wing’s attacks on his reputation and business. Hopefully, this means that he’s steeled himself, rather than lost heart, and has dispensed with the idea of wasting time “making friends” with the other side.

    (Getting the “Kavanaugh” treatment isn’t an epiphany. Experiencing someone trying to kill you is)

    With that said, it is important to understand that America could be “the other side”. If Bolsonaro has a modicum of honor, he’ll do what’s best for his country, just as Trump will – and God might not ordain that marraige. Brazil has a long history of opposing the very idea of America – far longer than Venezuela, mind you.

    If Bolsonaro wades into America’s sphere as deputy/vassal state for America (anything that smacks of the lie that is “multilateralism” would be harmful to the US), then this shouldn’t become a zero-sum game. In that event of such an accord, the US security and economics will be the obvious points of cooperation. The US can provide energy and agricultural industrial equipment and expertise – they basically buy our technology and equipment, and we invest in their country. But Brazil will want to export farm products to our country, and Trump should steer them away from it. Instead, I would recommend any new trade deal between the US and Brazil focus on “cheap labor”, and local energy towards textiles, process engineering, light manufacture, etc, at the expense of Asia and the rest of Latin America (especially China and the SaoPaulo group of countries). America can use Brazil as leverage against immediate neighbors like Canada and Mexico, and Brazil would likely leverage the US against states like Argentina and Chile.

    Brazil provides an interesting geo-strategic opportunity – but don’t get your hopes up. Again, even if Bolsonaro is sincere, it certainly doesn’t mean he’s on our side. “China” (both PRC and Taiwan), Japan, UK, South Korea, etc, technically were on our side in the Cold War, but they arguably did more damage to the US economically and culturally than did the Soviet Union. People forget that the UK and especially Japan were the models and inspiration for the 60s leftist revolutions which sought to denigrate and debase American culture using foreign examples; from the sexual revolution which sought to emulate Japanese attitudes on sex and homosexuality (Japan was not a chaste society) to the “peace revolution” which tried to shame WW2 veterans for the “Nuclear Holocaust” (Japan’s revenge against its Conquerors).

    So keep Brazil at arm’s length – trust me, their society is far more corrosive than even San Fransisco, no matter how idyllic Bolsonaro seems on the campaign trail. He knows his life is at stake, so that’s something of an advantage to us (and to Brazilians). People in San Fransisco, after all, ultimately wanted the United States to BECOME places like Brazil; a small wealthy aristocracy lording over the ignorant and eternally poor in the worst version of a debased “Democracy”.

      Brasil supplied around 25,000 troops to fight in Europe.
      Brasilians who had never seen snow died in it fighting with Allied forces.
      Last time I was in Brasil (18 yrs ago) they very much liked things American and Americans in general. Some are quick to point out they too are Americans.
      At a music store in a shopping mall in Floripa (Florianopolis, Rio de Sul Texas Line dancing was all the rage. At that time there seemed to be a small but growing middle class. Now I don’t know.

      Perhaps if the USA had spent as much time building a relationship with Brasil as do we mess about in the Mideast China might have been shut out…

      If we are going to muck about in the affairs of the rest of the world personally I would implore VSGPDJT spend more effort building a strong Americas, i.e. the New World.

    Welcoming the Caliphate to Brazil

    This article deals with the situation of the Islamization of Brazil in light of the new Law of Immigration, approved by the country’s Senate and sent for presidential signing. It highlights steps that have been taken to increase the nonexistent Islamic presence in Brazil into become an influential power. To understand the situation one needs to understand the deterioration of the political landscape of the country, which is briefly discussed in the course of the article (keeping in mind that politics in Brazil has a huge complicating factor: endemic corruption).

    As every other Lain American nation, Brazil has the curious talent of geopolitical invisibility aka irrelevance. Fabulist literature, well-crafted but essentially mindless Euro-driven murals, define this continent’s socio-cultural stock-in-trade. As for economic progress, scientific innovation, global political-military participation, the less said the better.

    One reason for this is most certainly the region’s unbreakable Hidalgo vs. indigenous barrier of ethnic/racial caste and class, exemplified by such as Jair Bolsonaro. For all his virtues, this gentleman is precisely that: A creature of the reigning Portugese establishment.

    What South America needs is a full-blooded Sapa Inca (chieftain), maphap a Suriname Creole or Mato Grosso tribal figure, re-asserting his long-supressed people’s identity in modern contexts. Unless and until that happens, “Nothing is changed, John Brown– nothing is changed.”
