WATCH: Video Details Brazilian President Bolsonaro's Ties to 'Murderous' Right-Wing Militias Ahead of Trump Meeting

Jake Johnson, staff writer

An in-depth video report detailed Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro's growing list of scandals and deep ties to Brazil's "most violent, lawless, and murderous paramilitary gangs" just before Bolsonaro is set to meet with his right-wing American counterpart Donald Trump in the White House Tuesday afternoon.

We the People must stop Trump from giving legitimacy to thugs like Bolsonaro.

That ship has sailed (see Duterte and Saudi prince MbS, among others), assuming that anything Twump does confers legitimacy on anyone.

Arrest and harass human rights investigators or refugees, welcome to thugs, killers and oppressors - the Trump agenda for the U.S.

It’s almost a cliche’ by now that The Don likes dictators. Too bad Congress didn’t get the memo.

My guess is that the fat one has invited Bolsonaro to come and tell him how he does it, and gets away with it. For this favor, he will be lionized and feted by the fat one and his minions, and the press will be carefully screened to make sure no antifascists are present at the interviews.

Greenwald and his partner better watch themselves. You fucking know that the US govt is not going to come to their aid in case they are “arrested”. I guess we’re going back to the Nixon/Reagan era of OPENLY supporting fascist govts in South & Central America again.

The operable term here is institutionalizing GENOCIDE to get ALL indigenous lands for transnationals.
Bolsonaro was in the military during the extremely corrupt dictatorship. When the Brazilian people rose up to remove it, many of the officials were given huge land grants and are returning today with weaponized agribusiness- a model also embraced by the US agribusiness and chemical companies. This is not a game.

Do you think Trump will feed Bolsonaro Burger King, or McDonald’s?

People have to wise up to the weaponization of social media - the manipulation by Bolsonaro minions being a precise case in point.

Journalist Pepe Escobar tracked the practices and they are worth recognizing and and being shared.

WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE

Brazil/USA/Russia, an Axis of belligerency making bad things worse.
Or should we fault the EU, World Bank, WTO and Transport industry leaders?
Why should freight trucks get 250kwh battery packs recharged thrice daily?
A household EV charge is 10kwh-to-85kwh. So the question is,
should we be concerned how resources go to:
1 EV truck, ~10 recharged Tesla EVs, or ~50 recharged plug-in hybrids?
It looks like the EV revolution couldn’t happen quick enough.
Got distracted in self-driving Bezos Musk & Gates sciency toys.

The common people of Brazil must have realized their powerlessness some their socialist leaders keep getting oveethrown one after another. I just hope that the working class all around the globe would unite and come to rhw aid of each orhwr in a global revolution against the criminal capitalist murder gang.

Thanks for your much valued opinions. Always in your debt for sharing your great advice.

Will he do the Pinochet thing to the Brazilians?

A serving of nice, tender, Soylent Green wouldn’t be out of character.
I’m sure both of those deviated preverts would enjoy it.
Barf!

Check with the CIA. I’m sure they’ve still got their notes from Chile. All they have to do is change the name.
