'Not a Good Day for Democracy': Brazil Votes for Impeachement Trial for Rousseff

Andrea Germanos, staff writer

Brazil's Senate on Wednesday voted to hold an impeachment trial for suspended President Dilma Rousseff, an effort that could mark the end of 13 years of rule by her leftist Workers' Party.

"Today is not a good day for our democracy," said Senator Paulo Rocha, an ally of the nation's first female president. He added that "there is a political alliance that smells of a coup" working against her.

This is what over 200 years of business as usual, with what should be our natural allies, looks like. To non-whites and the First Americans this is a nasty message about real U.S. intentions in this hemisphere. And, not a peep from our MSM or a question to Ol'Bullshitter, Queen Hillary or Herr Trumph about what " hope and change " means to the rest of the earth's 99s. Argentina, Brazil and Venezuela, too. Vultures, in suits, carrying cutting tools, are circling everywhere one looks these days.

Pony Boy, Petrobras and Iran-Contra come to mind. Iran- Contra, and William Casey dying conveniently before spilling the beans. Punctuated by Christmas Eve pardons for everybody, thanks to George H.W. (War Criminal) Bush. Petrobras, I would not want to be forced to be testifying in court on that one. Life would not be long.
