Stunner – Bolsonaro Open To “U.S. Strategic Alliance” Military Base in Brazil…

In the realm of everything geopolitical in consequence, a recent article from an interview with Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro highlights the globalists’ worst nightmare. And the comments from the WTO reflects the global influence of President Donald J Trump.

Before getting to two key points, rather stunningly delicious points, it’s worth remembering that Brazil is the “B” in the ‘BRICS alliance’.  Before U.S. President Donald Trump took center stage in the world of international influence, the former governments of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa (BRICS) had formed a coalition.  Each nation represented an enlarged -and growing- regional trade/economic influence.

Shortly after taking office; and with hindsight – prior to the China confrontation; President Trump began a systematic process of challenging various economic influencers.  This is the origin of the Trump Doctrine .

By expanding U.S. energy development, strategically engaging with OPEC (Gulf Cooperation Council) States, and simultaneously engaging with Baltic States at the Three Seas Summit in Warsaw Poland, President Trump established the groundwork for downward pressure on oil prices.  This comprehensive and geopolitical energy strategy diminished the ability of Russia to maintain a consistent external financial influence.

Simultaneously, President Trump reset the framework for U.S. relations with India; and, while few were paying attention to the side-bar benefit of Nikki Haley, President Trump engaged with Prime Minister Modi in bilateral discussions of enhanced economic partnership. [See: India Invests $500 Million in two U.S. Steel Operations]

In addition to India providing strategic benefit for trade market systems and access; an enhanced relationship with India also provides an economic foil against China. [Remember, Chinese President Xi is allied with, and heavily invested in, Pakistan.  India’s Prime Minister Modi is allied with, and heavily invested in, Afghanistan.]

♦ Big Picture – With President Trump focused on Main Street USA, the policies to support economic nationalism (Main Street) run in opposition to the multinational interests of  global financial elite (Wall Street).   The constructs of the World Bank (WB), World Trade Organization (WTO), and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) are necessarily weakened by the rise of President Trump and economic nationalism writ large.

At the same time as President Trump unapologetically confronts these multinational financial institutions, the people of Poland, Hungary, Italy and now Brazil; having felt no benefit from left-wing global policy (economics and immigration); embraced the more visible benefit of a nationalist economic policies and reaffirmed sovereignty.

Back to the BRICS…  What we now see is two central regional components of the BRICS alliance, India and now Brazil, allied in economic ideology with President Trump.

In essence: Russia is bleeding financially (oil revenue dependent). China is being weakened during the U.S. -vs- China trade confrontation.  And India along with Brazil are joining with the U.S.  This fractures the BRICS alliance. [Hell, it just about destroys it.]

That’s the background.

Now, lets take a look at the article from Brazil we cited in the beginning:

France24 – Brazil’s new President Jair Bolsonaro said on Thursday that he would be open to the possibility of the United States operating a military base on his country’s soil, a move that would form a sharp shift in direction for Brazilian foreign policy.

Bolsonaro, who took power on Tuesday, said that Russia’s support of President Nicolas Maduro‘s “dictatorship” in neighboring Venezuela had significantly ramped up tensions in the region and was a worrying development.

Asked by the SBT TV network in an interview taped on Thursday if that meant he would allow U.S. military presence in Brazil, Bolsonaro responded that he would certainly be willing to negotiate that possibility.

“Depending on what happens in the world, who knows if we would not need to discuss that question in the future,” Bolsonaro said.  He emphasized that what Brazil seeks is to have “supremacy here in South America.”

But wait, here’s the even bigger part of the story:

[…] Separately, Bolsonaro met with the head of the World Trade Organization, Roberto Azevedo, who said the government’s sharp rebukes of globalism were shared by many other countries and that the trade body was making changes.

On Wednesday, Brazil’s new Foreign Minister Ernesto Araujo said that under his watch the country would fight for change at multilateral institutions like the WTO.

Araujo’s words were not a threat, Azevedo said.

“To the contrary, I think it was very propitious and compatible with what is happening,” he said after meeting Bolsonaro. “The World Trade Organization itself is beginning the process of reforms.”  (link)

Hello?

Wait.., wha?…

Mr. Robert Azevedo, the head of the World Trade Organization, is now acquiescing to President Donald J Trump’s position that the era of multilateral, multinational, financial and corporate trade exploitation, ie. “globalism“, is over.

The WTO has agreed to reform in order to survive? …And the WTO is admitting this to nationalist political leaders after their successful elections?….

Pinch me!

Winnamins.

STAT !

Big ones.

“Hey, Mitt”..

    • In the long run a military base could reduce costs of military activity in the region. It certainly makes more sense than NATO in terms of national security. In the past, the assumption was that there was no military in that region that could threaten the US. However, it has become clear that the new threat is not military invasion but ‘invasion by migration’ and that brings a renewed value to regional ‘stabilization’. If Bolsonaro is considering it, we should too.

      I’m fine with overseas bases from the perspective of developing tighter relations. But under Trump, the days of paying for the privilege of operating a foreign base are over. What’s in it for US besides remote presence? That’s the key.

      At the rate Trump is going, he might well be signing renegotiated SOFAs with all of allies before election day. Particularly Germany, Italy, Spain and Korea where the cost of our doing business is made steeper than warranted by bad SOFAs (looking at you Madeline Albright and other State Dept traitors), compared to most other locales. The joke with Germany is we pay at least twice the human resource cost for half the productivity, compounded by onerous restrictions on the labor we can bring in to support the mission.

    None other than the New York Times who sent a letter of apology to China for an expose on their internal corruption.

    “In her forthcoming book, Merchants of Truth, Abramson writes publisher Arthur Sulzberger drafted a letter “all but apologizing” to Chinese officials for a report on how several of the country’s top lawmakers used their immense power for financial gain. Abramson claims the letter was written with “with input from the Chinese embassy.”

    “The 2012 report, titled “Princelings’ in China Use Family Ties to Gain Riches”, eventually won a Pulitzer Prize.”

    Mr. Bolsonaro should be very careful in interpreting what is meant by “the trade body was making changes.” I believe that it’s a vast leap to think that Robert Azevedo, the head of the World Trade Organization, is now acquiescing to PDJT’s position.

    The draft “U.S. Fair and Reciprocal Tariff Act,” that PDJT endorses and has threatened to implement, confers upon our president full power to determine any current or future tariff rates with countries—outside of the jurisdiction of the WTO, and circumvents primary WTO fundamentals such as “most favored nation” status and tariff ceilings. It would be most surprising if the WTO, given its membership, was willing to pass that authority over to PDJT.

    More accurately, I believe WTO leadership would say (or do) almost anything right now to stall and undercut PDJT’s agenda, which basically pulls us out from that organization’s influence. Like every other bloodsucker, the WTO is fighting for its life against a host which has unexpectedly recognized it is being parasitically consumed. I’d watch the WTO moves carefully, because they’re dug into our commerce like an Alabama tick and not likely to move until they’re plucked out or full.

    • I can understand your skepticism, but it’s important to remember that the US was the driving force for all of the various ‘multilateral’ institutions associated with the neoliberal project: UN, NATO, WTO, World Bank, IMF, IBoS.

      Without US support, these institutions are simply running on fumes and they know it.

      Yes, the various bureaucrats who populate these institutions will be looking for ways to stay ‘relevant’ in order to hang onto their cushy sinecures, but, as a result of the global rise of nationalism and populism in the West, they have to ‘adapt or die’.

      Yes – but the only way to make it great is to pull ir out of the geopolitical paradigm. Alexander Hamilton set up the ” based upon a National bank issuing loooog term funding at loooow interest rates designated ” American System of Physical Economy” that rapidly built America until the British geopolitical stooge Andrew Jackson canceled the National Bank and re-introduced the British Empire’s financial speculation system. the only way to carry out the intent for America is, as Chins has done, that of adopting the Hamilton Economic System and now pulled 140 countries into working for massive development for the “common aims of mankind” The new landing on the Far side of the moon involved several countries and picked up from the British financial gutting of our space program via buying wars instead of development. All the college educated people and their followers have quite a bit to learn, I believe, after having read so many foolish geopolitical origin comments .

    I have hated them from the git-go.
    This is a bit of a bio of Dan Amstutz, GRAIN TRADER. He was HONORED by an award dedicated to him for the wirk he had done on behalv of the grain traders. Stuff like convincing Congress to get rid of the Stategic Grain Reserves here in the USA so The traders could make more money.

    Read the Agreement on Agriculture some time. It was written by Dan Amstutz,
    ♦️ President of Cargill Investor Services 1972-1978,
    ♦️ USDA Undersecretary for International
    ♦️ Affairs and Commodity Programs 1983-1987
    ♦️ Chief Agriculture Trade Negotiator for the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade 1987-1989
    ♦️ Appointed to lead U.S. agricultural reconstruction efforts in Iraq
    ♦️ Wrote the WTO Agreement on Ag in 1995.
    ♦️ Wrote the DRAFT for the Freedom to Farm act in 1996.

    This law was later called the Freedom to Fail act as US farmers over produced and grain prices dropped like a rock. Grain traders used the surplus of very cheap grain to bankrupt farmers around the world. This was actually a KNOWN US policy as Clinton later admitted.

    President Bill Clinton, now the UN Special Envoy to Haiti, publicly apologized last month for forcing Haiti to drop tariffs on imported, subsidized US rice during his time in office. The policy wiped out Haitian rice farming and seriously damaged Haiti’s ability to be self-sufficient. http://www.democracynow.org/2010/4/1/clinton_rice

    ♦️ Amstutz then went to work for Goldman Sachs. This has always puzzled me until I finally ran across the last piece of the puzzle.

      In summary, we have record low grain inventories globally as we move into a new crop year. We have demand growing strongly.

      …Recently there have been increased calls for the development of a U.S. or international grain reserve to provide priority access to food supplies for Humanitarian needs. The National Grain and Feed Association (NGFA) and the North American Export Grain Association (NAEGA) strongly advise against this concept..Stock reserves have a documented depressing effect on prices… and resulted in less aggressive market bidding for the grains.” h.ttp://www.naega.org/images/pdf/grain_reserves_for_food_aid.pdf

        I am going to try just text without URLs.

        Stan Painter was the Head of the Government Inspectors Union that inspect food here in the USA. He testified to the bad corporate practices that were swept under the rug and cause deaths. Instead of the Cargill Board going to jail for killing people, we got Senator Burr’s Food Safety Modernization Act. 🙄

        Painter said Judge Bruce Levine … had a secret agreement with a former Republican chairwoman of the agency to stand in the way of investors filing complaints with the agency. “On Judge Levine’s first week on the job, nearly twenty years ago, he came into my office and stated that he had promised Wendy Gramm, then Chairwoman of the Commission, that we would never rule in a complainant’s favor,” Painter wrote. “A review of his rulings will confirm that he fulfilled his vow….

        Levine had never ruled in favor of an investor. Gramm [wife of former senator Phil Gramm (R-Tex.)], was head of the CFTC just before president Bill Clinton took office. She has been criticized by Democrats for helping firms such as Goldman Sachs and Enron gain influence over the commodity markets. After leaving the CFTC, she joined Enron’s board.

        How Goldman gambled on starvation

        http://www.independent.co.uk/opinion/commentators/johann-hari/johann-hari-how-goldman-gambled-on-starvation-2016088.html
        (Council on Foreign Relations) https://www.cfr.org/united-states/fp-goldman-sachs-created-food-crisis/p24904

        This is the story of how some of the richest people in the world – Goldman, Deutsche Bank, the traders at Merrill Lynch, and more – have caused the starvation of some of the poorest people in the world. At the end of 2006, food prices across the world started to rise, suddenly and stratospherically. Within a year, the price of wheat had shot up by 80 per cent, maize by 90 per cent, rice by 320 per cent. In a global jolt of hunger, 200 million people – mostly children – couldn’t afford to get food any more, and sank into malnutrition or starvation. There were riots in more than 30 countries, and at least one government was violently overthrown. Then, in spring 2008, prices just as mysteriously fell back to their previous level. Jean Ziegler, the UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food, calls it “a silent mass murder”, entirely due to “man-made actions.” Through the 1990s, Goldman Sachs and others lobbied hard and the regulations [controlling agricultural futures contracts] were abolished. Suddenly, these contracts were turned into “derivatives” that could be bought and sold among traders who had nothing to do with agriculture. A market in “food speculation” was born. The speculators drove the price through the roof….

          But it is true – as I knew, Obama was tied in with G-S in efforts to develop and established the Chicago Carbon Exchange.

          • Should anyone ever decide to write a ‘Decline and Fall of the American Left’, the process by which the American Left became focused on ‘international, ‘racial’ and ‘gender’ issues and a concomitant abandonment of ‘workers’ issue would be a prominent theme.

            Before Noam Chomsky lost his mind, said something that left an impression. He remarked that (at the time) there was alot of agitation on the left for ‘Central American’ issues including worker issues and ‘protests’ around this issue would draw many ‘leftists’. However, meetings with leaders of long-running strikes in the US (including Hormel, I believe) would only draw a handful of people.

            Another theme would be the ‘professionalization’ of Leftism. The rise of NGOs for ‘international’ (immigration) and ‘racial’ issues provided a source of income for an entire class of ‘leftists’. As a result, the left was wedded to the Donor Class.

            Additionally, Leftist racist and sexist dogma became embedded in US corporate America’s HR departments via Title IX lawsuits. Another source of income for ‘professional’ leftists.

            The result was a Leftism — and unions — that had adapted to capitalism by focusing on just about every ‘issue’ except those of workers.

    Not a chance. He uses people, even apparent enemies, for good in ways they cannot understand — but they do his bidding (and complain afterwards).

    Sundance: Great explanation

    Having all that money from India invested in US Steel
    production will be great. The Prime Minister of India?
    Not so much. Wayyyyyyyy not so much.

    Have a coworker from India, a terrific guy in his early
    40s. One of the Christian channels had a documentary
    about radical Hindus that were attacking and killing Christians
    in India. Most of the Christians in India live in the southern
    part of the country. Most of the atrocities against Christians
    is occurring in the northern part of India.

    I was asking my coworker about all the targeting of
    Christians in India. He’s a fairly devout Christian himself.
    According to him the targeting of Christians increased
    dramatically, and was basically endorsed by Modi.
    Basically, it was one of the platforms he ran on. Radical
    Hindus targeting other religions in India. Modi is running
    for re-election in 6 months. My friend is praying that he
    will be defeated.

    It would be great if Trump could lean on Modi to quit
    backing persons that are going in and burning entire
    Christian villages. If he could use leverage against
    Kim in Korea,maybe the same can occur in India.

    It’s the correct thing for oppressed people. It would
    also have an explosive effect on how many Christians
    from India would put their allegiances behind Trump
    if he was able to make it happen. It also doesn’t hurt
    that the MSM has had zilch coverage of the carnage.
    All of the good will generated would be word of mouth.
    Much more powerful.

        would recognize it instantly. The former Mount
        Carmel Church site.

    I would agree to a base in Brazil under one condition: removal of all our troops from Europe, Japan,S.Korea,Africa,Middle Ass-I mean East, etc, etc.Why should American troops serve as a hair trigger to get us involved in a larger conflagration? If those countries cant get along with one another a pox on them all. Bring our troops home.Put them on the border.A wall of steel.A wall of bayonets. This will do several things.Troops will be closer to loved ones.Troops will be happy to protect our own borders instead of some far off country that hates our guts anyway.The icing on the cake-every military payday will be like Christmas in those border towns.Troops spending paychecks on our own economy instead of ungratefull “allies” countries.We all win!

      There is another side to that. Small working-interest oil owners, like me, are getting killed by these prices. I need $55/barrel just to break even. And being 71 and enduring 10 years of low-interest rates from the fed has set my scrimping and saving back terribly as a senior, just so Wall St. banks and a profligate gov’t can enjoy low rates at no risk.

    Observations from a smaller limb.

    At the risk of catching the ire of Sundance and many others I disagree completely with the Reuters take on oil. I think it was one of PDJT best deals. U.S. gets lower oil prices to hep jump start the economy. A second tax cut if you will. The gulf states get sanctions reimposed on Iran looking to take the mullahs out and remove Russia to help stabilize the region.

    Next providing LNG through Poland and a new pipeline through the Mediterranean from the middle east will give the gulf coast new markets for gas. Moving into eastern Europe through Greece and Italy. Challenges the E.U. Along with Russia and German pipeline deal.

    The gulf states also demand payment in a stronger U.S. dollar reducing their B.E. point coupled with their deeper pockets are looking at great rewards with a chance at a new Iranian government. Iran, Russia are the first two targets, there are two more.

    PDJT is brilliant.

    Fantastic analysis, Sundance, and great supplemental information G Combs and others. Deal making is indeed DJT’s canvas, and we are living through the creation of masterpiece after masterpiece. Perhaps best of all is the systematic exposure of the depraved corruption in the Left, the Globalists, the International Financial institutions, the Deep State, the MSM, the NGOs, the politicians, academia, etc. Getting them to allow their own evil (and, in the case of useful idiots, their stupidity) to destroy them.

    Likely Venezuela will be the 51st state. But we will keep the oil this time.

    I love this article. Thank you SD. For the first time nations with the desire foresight and ability to break free of the globalist tentacle can now do so. Simply align with a US president that has guts brains motivation and cannot be bought under any condition, a president that serves the people, a man that provides first ever security air cover/economic leverage partnership against global elites, if you will. They are signing up and getting on board. Awesome!

    Someone here at CTH posted this PDF. It covers many Chinese moves that Sundance talks of and others underway in South America

    Whoever proofread this article didn’t do his job. The misuse of dashes and semicolons mislead the reader and make it hard to follow the thought.

  32. This development is incredibly consequential. Another building block in resetting alliances and the complexion of world trade.
    It is heartening to see the reset move from the planning to execution phase. Fantastic post SD!
