Rio-2016 News

FAAN,

Can we speak only the truth?

Thanks.

Can you stop being ridiculous?
I didn't say anything. That's the Brazilian Federal Justice and all the newspapers of the country showing what is happening and the current situation of the thieves that are on the government.
If the judge is pro or anti government in his personal life it doesn't matter, before being a judge he is a citizen with all the rights that are guaranteed by the constitution.

Ibosvespa is on the rise and dollar is falling against Real now.

Ibovespa: +7.10%

Dollar: -2.62%

At least today, the market is very optimistic and hoping that some change is on course with the new revelations about Dilma and Lula. Investors also don't trust the government.

Funny. Chavez also used Love as the theme of his campaign in 2006 when he was reelected.

After he won, he inmediatly closed down a very popular TV channel which was very critic of the government, then declared socialism without more disguises while insulting and jailing students.

So much for the "love". I guess they mean love for those who agree with them. Typical of leftards.


PS: Apparently Lula also insulted feminists on the PT, calling them "tight lipped pussies" in one of the recorded phone calls. If you had any more doubts these guys only really care to fill their pockets and don't give a damn for progressiveness and liberal policies.

Of course, Maduro is doing a national broadcast system, saying there is a world wide conspiracy to destroy both Lula and Dilma.

I'm really not going to be surprised at all when our delegation gets booed like mad at the Opening Ceremony. In fact I kinda wish this happens.

Just a friendly reminder to our brazilian friends who's the real president of Brazil as long as the person at the left keeps getting away with this.

I guess the Impeachment will happen shortly, given Dilma doesn't seem to be the kind of person to admit mistakes and resign with what little remains of her dignity.

You know, this might sound a bit crazy but I think it would even be convenient for the IOC that there is a change of government ASAP, because the Rio games are going to be marred reaaaaally bad by this, at this point.

Venezuela was indeed booed at the Rio 2007 Opening Ceremony. Trying to understand Brazil is not for beginners you see...

Oh! I'd like to share this lovely image below

Allow me to provide some context: The pic is from São Paulo (obviously) and it says: Carecas do Subúrbio against corruption. The people around the Brazilian flag are a notoriously violent skinhead group (carecas do subúrbio) from São Paulo, some policemen and members of FIESP (Federation of Industries of São Paulo State), an organization that supported dictatorship back then and whose HQ is the building with the big led screen.

As you can see, the forces pushing the Government to fall as soon as possible no matter how many democratic are thrown away are the same guys who plunged this country into one of the darkest chapters of our history. Policeman, businessmen and skinheads together against corruption smells really bad and any south american person should now how autocratic these guys can get, right?

It's not about corruption, It's about strong hate against a single party and democratic values in general.

democratic rites are thrown out the window*

Workers' Party is paying R$ 30 (~US$ 10) for people to go to pro governement demonstrations, plus they're are paying for snacks and transportation.

Workers' Party gives R$ 30 and bus transportation for protesters: http://www.oantagonista.com/posts/pt-paga-30-reais-e-da-onibus-para-manifestantes

Workers Party is paying trucks with sound to drive through streets of small northeastern towns (where many people are benefited by social programs such as Bolsa Família) spreading lies. They're saying that people should take part in pro government protests this friday because otherwise the opposition will cut their benefits:

Yesterday in Paulista Avenue:

Alright this is boring. Can y'all report on this when something other than street protests actually happens??? Like if someone dies/gets killed, or when this useless c**t is finally impeached? This back and forth really doesn't mean anything, especially when this currently doesn't have a clear relationship with what it has to do with the Olympics, unless the situation shows there will be no clear resolution by the time the games come.

And if this were about the Olympics, these protesters would be gathering around the venues being used and still currently under construction for the Olympics, but they're not.

You know what. I'm not even going to bother with you anymore. You guys will call anyone who don't support your views a fascist and a skinhead. This is beyond pathetic... The only guys who are acting fascist are these people, summoning their thugs to beat the crap out of people who only want a change and because they have different views.

Democracy is about being alternant. When a party or individual wants to stay in power as much as they can and don't give a flying damn when the majority of the country are demanding a change, then we got a big trouble in hands. This is why term limits exist and why many latin american countries used to ban consecutive re-election. Power corrupts people.

Oh, and of course, once again "muh evil white people" bullshit. Every single time.

This is all the PT people in a nutshell.

My two cents:

Sick of both sides...

Disappointed with endemic corruption of all parties, all sides...

Really tired of arguments to show "I'm right" for nothing...

That's probably my last post in the forums (been away for 5 months already due skin cancer of my wife and somehow all internet argumentative fights became so stupid and useless).

Anyway.

It was a pleasure!

Hope you guys enjoy the games in Rio!

Aquele abraço.

It seems Switzerland is going to send data about brazilian politicians. Looks like Janot didn't liked at all that Lula called him spineless on the wired tapes.

"QUID EST VERITAS?"

"COGNOSCETIS VERITATEM, ET VERITAS LIBERABIT VOS"

I recognize, it is too difficult to explain - using no cliches - to non-Brazilian what is happening in our country. It is also, in a certain way, useless. Even most Brazilians do not understand the entire chain of events that led to the investigation of cases of scandals related to corruption, due to the immense amount of alleged crimes in question, the large number of convictions, the speed in which everything is occurring. Most people only understand that there are scandals relatedo to bribes. To explain it in the proper way, I would need a lot of time on my part and a lot of patience and interest from those who would read. Regarding to Lula, in a nutshell, he is being investigated as favored in corruption schemes through which he would have received a grange and an apartment as bribes. He strongly denies it but the Public Prossecutors insist on the thesis. In the last week, they ordered Lula's arrest. Before Justice could manifest its position on the request, President Rousseff appointed him Minister of the Civil House, the second person in the hierarchy of the federal administration, second to the President herself. This appointment had the clear intention of giving Lula a legal shield, because, once being a Minister of State, he could not be judged by Judge Sergio Moro, Curitiba, State of Paraná: as a prerogative of his new role in the Federal Government, Lula can be investigated if only the Supreme Court allows it and he can be judged only by this same Court. However, Lula's appointment was questioned by a number of preliminary injunctions, about 20, as much as I know. The federal government managed to take down two of the injunctions. Nonethless, late on Friday, a judge of the Supreme Court suspended Lula’s appointment, recognized as adequate the arguments against him and Mme. Rousseff’s administration. At the same time, the judge sent his decision to the Supreme Court’s Plenary, which will make its decision int he next week . That will be an unappealable sentence. At the moment, Lula is not Minister of State. And, as there is an arrest warrant against him, the former President can be arrested at any time.

flashback to 4 days ago:

SAO PAULO (AP) — Brazil’s Defense Minister Aldo Rebelo has played down the risks of massive protests during the Olympic Games, despite the country’s economy and political crisis and a mushrooming scandal at state-run oil giant Petrobras.

Rebelo told a news conference in Brasilia on Wednesday that the expected 85,000 security agents, including 38,000 members of the armed forces, will be enough to guarantee safety during the games in Rio de Janeiro from Aug. 5-21.

The minister also said that violent protests, like those witnessed during the 2013 Confederations Cup, are not likely, but would “have to be confronted and repressed if they happen”.

I wonder how many people from the countryside they brought with buses in order to fill those protests. Not mentioning how many of them were paid. That modus operandi never gets old :P
