After a Year of Protests Brazil Enters 2014 Ready to Welcome the World PDF Print E-mail
2014 - January 2014
Written by Arthur Ituassu   
Monday, 13 January 2014 03:59

Street protest in BrazilIt has been quite a year in Brazil. The country experienced huge demonstrations as more than one million people protested in the streets. These were the largest popular eruptions since 1992, when president Fernando Collor de Mello was impeached.

In addition, the biggest political corruption scandal (the so-called mensalão) since the end of the military regime in Brazil (1964-85) saw some powerful personalities of the ruling Partido dos Trabalhadores (Workers' Party / PT) - including long-term comrades of the former president, Lula da Silva - being sent to jail, after their condemnation in 2012 by Brazil's supreme court.

Whatever mix of good and bad things emerges from 2014, none of what happened has been minor.

This is most clearly true of the demonstrations, especially the ones on 17 and 20 June, when (according to even modest estimates) around 100,000 people assembled in the streets of Rio de Janeiro and 70,000 of São Paulo on the first night. There were also protests in the major Brazilian cities of Belo Horizonte, Brasília, Porto Alegre, Fortaleza and Curitiba.

The signals of the drama to come were apparent at the beginning of June, when small protests against a rise in the price of public-transport tickets took place in the streets of the Paulista capital and grappled the attention of Brazilian media. The same issue had ignited popular manifestations before in at least two other big cities: Natal, in August 2012, and Porto Alegre, in March 2013.

In São Paulo, three small demos on 6, 7, and 11 June encountered harsh police repression and the prejudices of Brazil's establishment media, which was quick to classify the participants as "vandals".

In a wider context of relative economic prosperity and consumerism, which much of the country had experienced since the Real Plan of former president Fernando Henrique Cardoso (1995-2003) and the social programs of Lula (2003-11), it seemed that there was no space for political protests.

The easy accusations of "vandalism" just as rapidly proved to be mistaken, however. In fact, they provoked further protests directly against the Brazilian media. A few days later, on 13 June, people took to the streets in São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and at least five other capitals: Natal, Porto Alegre, Teresina, Fortaleza and Maceió.

In São Paulo, the police crackdown was violent and at least 300 were arrested. Several people, including journalists, were injured in the clashes, and the photographer Giuliana Vallone, working for the newspaper Folha de S. Paulo, was hit in the eye by a rubber-bullet. This was two days before the opening of the FIFA's Confederation Cup in the country, thus in full view of the world's media.

On 20 June, in the middle of this global football tournament - which was to be known in Brazil as the "Manifestations Cup" - around 1.5 million people flocked onto the streets in more than 100 Brazilian cities.

The protests' origin in transport prices became swamped by an enlarged range of issues - including public benefits in general (health, education and security), political corruption, media concentration, and the spiraling costs of the FIFA's World Cup in Brazil in 2014.

The Scandal

Four months later, on 15 November, a crisis of another order reached its peak, as the Brazilian supreme court issued arrest-orders for twelve of the twenty-five politicians, bankers and businessmen condemned in 2012. The trial, which began in August 2012, concerns the buying of representatives' votes in the Brazilian congress in 2005-06.

It involves high-profile figures such as José Dirceu, the Lula presidency's former chief-of-staff, who was given ten years in prison and a fine of more than 650,000 reais (US$ 325,000), and José Genuíno, the PT's former president, who was given six years in prison and a fine of almost 500,000 reais (US$ 250,000).

The importance of the case lies not only in its size and the fact that it involves a ruling party and prominent former leaders, but in the historic role of Lula's PT as both a beacon in the fight against Brazil's military regime and a traditional bastion of decency in the country's complex political arena.

Hence, it will be no surprise if the image of politics itself suffers major damage among Brazilians, fed greatly by the conservative media's "spectacularization" of the corruption trial.

The Lessons

So what good and bad things come from all this? First, the popular manifestations of 2014 show that relative economic prosperity and consumerism are not enough. The protests were largely a networked movements of the urban middle-class, and as such brought attention to long-standing problems in the provision of public services in Brazil and in an over-centralized media environment; and to the need for more participative methods of decision-making in the country and the creation of multiple spheres of authority to rethink Brazil's social priorities.

Second, however, the protests fueled non-democratic movements and encouraged the view that Brazilian politics had failed to address all the issues they had voiced.

Third, the results of the long and complex mensalão trial can be seen as a hoped-for turning-point against impunity within Brazilian politics and society - and the idea that in Brazil, only black and poor people go to jail.

At the same time, the authoritarian behavior of the president of the supreme court, Joaquim Barbosa, during the trial has fed a desire for non-democratic solutions and neo-populist political platforms (reflected in pleas for Barbosa himself to become the "savior of the country".)

In the end, the one certainty is that 2013 has shown Brazil to be both a vibrant and heavily mediatized democracy that thinks constantly about itself in a very competitive discursive environment (which now, without any doubt, includes the Internet.)

This can be seen as a complex, diverse and unexpected background for 2014, when the country will experience its second FIFA World Cup in June, after its second place in 1950 and the defeat by Uruguay in the final match in Rio's Maracanã, but also national elections for congress, governors and the president in October. 2014 promises to be as big a year as 2013 has been.

this article by a rio professor, is a snow job about what happened

the black bloc paid thugs to break things in recife, s**t was thrown on public places in one city, and all they did was break things the regular public needs and uses...

this is a snow job, written here. he calls joaquim authoritarion,and actualy plays down the wanton violence and destruction that the ass hole black blocer used...this guy doesnt even go into detail about that

he doesnt mention 95 percent of the people were against the wanton violence, even if they support protest

he doesnt mention that while a small percentage of people enganged in wanton violence, many more brazilians were cheering their team to victory in the confederacaos cup

its a big mistake to portest the copa and olympics...its disgusting..any problems with health care and economic disparity , were happening well before these protests and are cronic and independent of the copa...that is what is ridiculous...

i think brazilians should get behind the copa and olympics, its a good thing for brazil and brazilians

these issues of economic disparity, health care and services should be forcefully addressed in another manner than tying it to the copa and olympics, and wanton violence is the dumbest thing that could be done, it absolutly turns off a lot of people that might sympathise with them, and will bring down a back lash that may have more severe consequences than we can imagine

this is a snow job article...written by guess who? another rio professor...is a rio professor really capable of being able to give a true report on this?
"The system is ungovernable . . . It has already largely imploded."

Greg Hunter – January 19, 2014

Professor William Black-System is Ungovernable, It has already Largely Imploded

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oUHS7TVVgww

Professor William Black is a former financial regulator and an expert in white collar crime. According to Professor Black, the financial system is headed for an even bigger collapse. As a major warning sign, Professor Black points to Treasury Secretary Jack Lew's recent complaint about no money for regulation in the recent budget deal.

Professor Black says, "Jack Lew is the anti-canary in the coal mine because Lew has been gutting regulation for virtually all of his professional life. . . . Lew is saying, my God we've gone so far we're going to cause the collapse of the system. . . . You know when Jack Lew keels over, you know that carbon monoxide has already killed everybody reasonable."

Professor Black goes on to say, "The system is ungovernable . . . It has already largely imploded." Join Greg Hunter as he goes One-on-One with Professor William Black, who recently updated and re-released his popular book "The Best Way to Rob a Bank is to Own One."

Dr. Paul Craig Roberts-U.S. Gold Gone...Gone...Gone....

Dr. Paul Craig Roberts-U.S. Gold Gone – January 20, 2014
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p0rGaWcRiNo


Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, the Father of Reaganomics, predicts, "I think, this year, you are going to see a further downturn in the economy. The signs are not only that we do not have a recovery, but it's going to get worse. . . . Christmas sales were very negative. There's no growth in people's income and no jobs. So, if the economy goes down further, what does that mean? It means the deficit widens. It means they have a greater debt ceiling lift. They have to have a bigger debt ceiling increase, and all of this will alarm the world. They'll say, good heavens, they already had a trillion dollar deficit. Now it's gone up, and the Fed can't stop the quantitative easing without the stock and bond market collapsing. The banks' solvency will become an issue. So, the world is watching a bigger deficit, more printing of money, and they are likely to start dumping dollars. When they do that, they'll say 'gold, I want gold.' There's not much supply to meet demand, and the price has to escalate. So, I wouldn't be surprised if that shows up this year." Dr. Roberts also contends that America's gold is "mainly gone."

so he looks at agriculture struggle in the last century, but, forgot, agriculture reform under mao killed 30 million people. can that sob, and the punk ass holes waving their red flags with che on it , wrap their shrink brains around that?

what a f**king idiot

and, allende didnt get over thrown because of agriculture reform...only on a cuban made docu, made as a promo for castro, can you see film of allende getting on a public mic saying he was firmly in support of castro and the cuban people. that is the real reason he got over thrown...you chose castro back then and you seal your fate, im so happy that the che want to be revolutions didnt succeed down here...too bad it had to be brutal, but, fuk marxism up the fuking ass

stedile has gotten so much money from the government, yet he tries to imply he is active and relevant now...

Sorry, ASP. If the article had been written by Ricardo or my excellent self, you would have analyzed it more profoundly. smilies/sad.gif

I know you have trauma in dealing with "learned professors" and have the tendency to brand them all "commies" (to certain extent you have reasons!). But you have to realize that Rickey and I have same opinion on "Agrarian Reforms" which differs from that of Stedile. In the sense, Rickey and I foresee the looming disasters, but the good professors are completely alienated from the very society they think they are defending.They wait for the disasters to promote their own agenda. To make it worse, they have the audacity to criticize the "lack of vision", we the peasants (Rickey excluded) have.

I understand your feelings Ricardo. My condolences to the premature and tragic demise of your cousin. This must have come as a second shock during the span of less than two years.

You and Eduardo must have grown up together, when you were still living in Brasil. Were you two still in touch personally, over the phone or Internet? Did you get to know his son?

Sub: Cuban Doctors in Brasil

Here is an interesting link to read:

http://veja.abril.com.br/notic...-000-reais

Right from the beginning of the program "Mais Médicos", I have been saying that it would come to this point. While I don't care if the doctor is from Cuba or U.K. ( as long he/she is qualified and gets an "acceptable score" determined by an "international Entity"), I do question the fact that a large chunk of their salaries has to be paid to the Cuban Government. smilies/angry.gif

first, joao, stedile is just acting like any sane person would to say people shouldnt protest against the copa...only stupid fuks get out there and do violent protests against something most of brazil is looking forward to...these people looked like s**t protesting while brazil won the confederacao cup

this is more like pre 64 a-5, there were huge amount of strikes and people in the streets, with violent protests...there isnt going to be a military take over, but, the same dynamic is setting in place, small amounts of people doing violent things,while most of th country doesnt want violence...the diks who started armed revolution were so stupid they thought the people whould rise up with them...people hated the dictator crack down, but they sure didnt want a marxist revolution

these stupid fuks just dont get it, they need to be bitch slapped around

yeah i saw this about the cuban doctor...i agree about why should a bug chunk of her salary go to castro..this whole thing smells funny all the way around... im not against cuban doctors at all if its fair all the way around and no one makes a big political deal about it

i dont care if dilma was in cuba and gets a deal getting a dock to ship things to the usa, i dont like the blockade myself, but, marxism sucks and for the cuban people to have to look at the name castro as their leader for more than 50 years, that is pathetic..and sick

1) Stedile is a politician and an extremely bright guy (like your nemesis compatriot in the other thread). One is the leader of MST and another is the "researcher" of the "sex workers" in Rio's Prostíbulos. As you rightly said all the learned professors have their own agendas and really don't give a s**t about the "masses" they are "leading" .smilies/sad.gif

2) That does not mean that Stedile is not giving the right statistics. Confirmed by our distinguished writer Ricardo and equally distinguished commentators like Simp, Dr.L.C., Cel.Ederson et all about how you guys turned the Midwest of your country into producing Moss (read: excess & uncontrolled use of chemical fertilizers). The question is: Do we want to do the same thing?

3)
any sane person would to say people shouldnt protest against the copa...only stupid fuks get out there and do violent protests against something most of brazil is looking forward to.


I am not sure if "most of Brasil is looking forward to". SC is relieved that we are not involved and there again, we don't count.smilies/angry.gif

In this episode of the Keiser Report, Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert compare Wall Street to World Wrestling Entertainment where alleged competitors adopt stage personas and meet each other in a choreographed, scripted and over-acted competition. And just as people are betting on the pre-determined outcomes in the WWE ring, they're doing the same in the rigged financial markets.

joao, anybody who watches channal 4 knows what is happening in the agricultural industry and what is at stake..he isnt the inventer and lead voice about the pesticides and feralizers and the how the nutriants are lost...he latches on to that s**t...and organic food is available at the supermarkets, the consumer has the right to chose, and, i chose it when i can, but, i know its not always available..and,in some ways , i dont know what is really up about the depth of these things, how much is hype, or truth...they change it often in the food industry..i have to trust my instinct as much as anything

and i just watched the cerimonies of the winter olympics, the russions killed it, it was wonderful and im not a winter olympics fan...and, you got a guy like me , thousands of miles away, seeing how the russions express themselves, their soul...chykofsky and ballet...that is what i thought russion culture was...a part of it, some of its highest expresion, and there it was...and, i couldnt help thinking of the copa and olympics comeing up here, and, how the world will get to experiance brazil, and how brazilians can take incredible pride in themselves and what they have to show of their culture..the pan am games out did themselves, just amp the fireworks and it will blow the world away (elza soares and spok frevo, it doesnt get better than that)

joao, its one thing to not want it in your city, its another to be happy its in brazil...im glad its not here...we couldnt handle it...we cant get water in the summer here...i will be honored to be in this country with so much rich histroy of futebol, and be able to watch the brazilian reports, the brazilian point of view, the protests...

this black bloc and the red flaggers actualy waving their communist flags ,are just taking a s**t on something the people really will get something out of, its no surprise because they break things the people really have to use. Its a bunch of middle class fihlho e filha de papais , being able to just reak wanton violence on public places in peoples neighborhoods, and know they can get away with it...the sao paulo police shoot more people than the whole usa police force, and most of those people are brown and black...some were justified..but, these black white skin blockers ,from the middle class, are getting away with huge amounts of destruction to public property and chaos in the streets...the police know they could beat up a son or daughter of a lawyer, polliticion, doctor, etc

and more and more, these mother fukers actualy waving the communist flag, or with che on it..who the fuk is teaching them? dont they know about the more than 100,million dying because of communism? 30 million starved to death in mao's beaurocratic marxist agricultural techniques? the red culturual revolution that killed millions more in maos china? 25 to what ever million eliminated by stalin? the khmer rouge? life in north korrea? what the fuk who the fuk is teaching them that that is a viable option?

they are just taking a s**t on everybody, getting on facebook and the news, rescuing dogs, not helping a pedreiro in rochinha who was tortured and killed by the police, and getting away with it

there are a thousand more creative ways to protest and face the issues that need to be protested, than the option these disapointing representatives of the middle class are taking...i know they are only a fraction of the middle class, anyway...a small amount of people trying to be wanta be ches...

the red shirts messing you up , a lot of them were some of stedile's people, you cant tell the protesters without a score card..i thought you would contacts stedile's relatives who you made lunch for , and, could have had them make a special pathway for you

i could almost die laughing, stediles people are asking for police help, except for two things, stedile gets huge money from the government, it makes sence he would call on them if he feels threatoned...the second thing is, that s**t is too near me, where they have taken over and on april 15 , i wont be surprised if they come spilling out on the highway to our place and make our lives even more f**ked up because of this s**t....none of these bitches has any sence, they all think alike, like the head of the bus syndicate here, who has no caring at all if he calls a strike anytime anywhere, the peoples real needs are the last one on the list

yeah, now a filmer is in the hospital, because the black blocs and communist flag wavers, the prick ideologists , "im not marxist or commie, im a prick with a f**ked up ideology"

what the fuk ... a whole lot of political bullsh!t is rolling around now..and the rest of the majority of brazilian people are just being held hostage by this dog and pony show...they even rescued the dogs
Prophet Mohammed Descent
written by Ricardo C. Amaral, February 08, 2014


Joao da Silva, como voce sabe eu sou agnostico.

Veja so a ironia do que descobri.

A familia Andrada e a Souza Queiroz as duas familias sao descendentes do profeta Mohammed.

Demorou bastante para fazer toda a pesquisa mas consegui quase toda a informacao que precisava.

Por sinal eu estava fazendo pesquisa porque meu primo tinha me dito a varios anos atraz que eles tinham descouberto que a familia Souza Queiroz era descendente da Princesa Zayda/Zaida/Isabel of (Sevilla) Castilla que se casou com o rei da Espanha Alfonso VI de Castilla y Leon el Bravo.

Eu comecei a fazer a pesquisa por acaso a uns meses atraz, pois no meu banco aqui em New Jersey, a bank manager nasceu no Libano, e eu perguntei a ela se ela era catholica, or de outra religiao, pois mais da metade da populacao do Libano sao Catholicos.

Ela me disse que era Moslem. Dai eu perguntei qual o ramo da religiao, e ela respondeu que era Sunni.

Dai eu mencionei a ela que meu primo tinha me dito que eles tinham descoberto que a nossa familia Souza Queiroz era descendente desta Pricesa Arab que se casou com o Rei da Espanha.

Dai ela me perguntou se a Princesa era Sunni or Shia.

E eu nao sabia a resposta, por isso que eu comecei a pesquisar.

Logicamente me levou meses para fazer a pesquisa, mas quanto mais eu me aprofundava na pesquisa, mais interesante foi ficando, pricipalmente quando eu comecei a reconhecer varios nomes dos antepassados de Jose Bonifacio.

No final da historia as duas familias "Andrada" e "Souza Queiroz" sao descendentes da Princesa Zayda/Zaida/Isabel of (Sevilla) Castilla que se casou com o rei da Espanha Alfonso VI de Castilla y Leon el Bravo e tambem do profeta Mohammed.

Da uma olhada em toda a informacao que eu acabei de por no meu novo blog.

Olá Ricardo,

Considero que os muçulmanos e judeus são farinha do mesmo saco. Foram bons na matematica, navigação e (consequentemente) comércio exterior. É bem possivel que seus ancestrais foram judeus que se converteram para Islamismo e emigraram para a penisula iberica (Mouros?) Provavelmente de Portugal, eles chegaram ao Brasil como comerciantes e eventualmente se tornaram governantes.

É muito dificil para descobrir as "Roots" dos cidadões comuns como eu e por isso nunca tentei descobrir de foi que meus ancestrais vieram.Vou deixar este típo de pesquisa nas mãos dos antropologos como Dr.TGB.smilies/smiley.gifsmilies/wink.gifsmilies/cheesy.gif

While thanking you for extending your solidarity in these difficult times, I have to make one thing clear, ASP.

Just because some of my contacts have the same surname, it does not mean they all share the ideology of João, their "primo rico"! Probably they are as pissed off as you and me!! If I recall correctly, they came to Brasil from the land of ch.c a long time ago. Who knows our vanished blogger ch.c is related to him and financing the "movement".smilies/wink.gifsmilies/cheesy.gif

Strange as it may seem, these "protests" have not disappeared as the "manda chuvas" in Brasilia hoped. As for the deadline of April 15th: I wonder what the state government is going to do if the "protesters" refuse to leave that private property. You may or may not know, the owner of that property is (at least used to be) an innovator and entrepreneur. He created in that swath of land a shrimp farm which functioned well for years. I wonder why he decided to terminate that enterprise. Now these SOBs who have occupied that land want to turn it into a "farmland" again. The whole thing stinks and the "red shirts" seem to be "laranjas" of some outsiders.smilies/angry.gif

This "red shirt" / "brown shirt" thing is a bit of a s**tty business and I feel sorry for you folks directly affected on a daily basis.

The entrepreneur of which you speak had little choice. Too many "laranjas" tipped porta-potty's over into his pens and he lost FDA approval to ship product to the good ole US of A. and other locales. No doubt the local squatters want to do a little bit of back filling and import some Chinese or Vietnamese musk ox and start rice paddies with the fertilizer coming from "organic" local sources.

this all stinks of politics , and a mentality of a few people, who could really care less of what the daily person has to deal with to get through this life...they just add on to the burdens and obstacles, for their own greedy interests

there are so so many ways to creativly protest , and protest over relevant things...now, the sh!t is just diluted to nothing, "you got a problem...protest and break a window" and saturated with prick ideologists

im all for massive peaceful protest , but, im seeing lots of wanton violence and the red commie flags, anarcho black blocs and che pictures...this is nsome other sh!t, and it can kiss my ass

Joao, this was the total world population during that time period, and keep in mind that about 70 percent of the population were living in China and India.

In the year 600 AD about 140 million people were living in China and India and about 60 million people were living in the rest of the world.

By 1100 AD about 220 million people were living in China and India and about 100 million people were living in the rest of the world.

If you check my Arab ancestors from the year 600 AD to 1100 AD they were living around Mecca and Medina where Saudi Arabia is located today. They probably had a very small Arab population at that time living where we have Saudi Arabia and Iraq. And most likely they were mostly Moslems.

Keep also in mind that during that period the total Jewish population around the world was between 70,000 to 80,000 people. And many of these Jewish people had been trading with Europe for more than 200 years.

Let’s go back now to the year 721 BC when the Assyrians overruns Israel, disperses the Israelites and takes thousands as slaves. Israel as a nation vanishes. The year 721 BC is the end of old Israel, until Israel it is recreated by the British in 1948.

In 721 BC the total world population is estimated to be around 60 million people. Again 75 % of the total (about 45 million people) were living in China and in India – and that leaves about 15 million people scattered around the rest of the world.

The Israel that were destroyed in 721 BC had no more than 50,000 people living in that entire area of the world in small villages raging in size from a few hundred people to maybe 2,000 or 3,000 people on the largest cities.

Although the reconquest of the Iberian Peninsula from Muslims began in the 8th century and reached its turning point around 100 years before the preaching of the First Crusade in 1095, with the recapture of Toledo in 1085, Urban II also tied the ongoing wars in Iberia to his preaching of the First Crusade and the crusading effort.

If you check the names of my ancestors it doesn't look like any of them had Jewish names.

Rob Kirby: The Economy is Not in Recovery but Financial War

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sEhlH_YlQlc


KirbyAnalytics.com claims what is happening now in the economy is not recovery but "financial war." Kirby explains, "What we're witnessing and experiencing is a war between the keepers of the fiat system . . . and foreigners who have lost confidence in the U.S. dollar and confidence, for the most part, in fiat money. This is why all the emerging countries, China, Russia and the Asian countries, are all buying gold. Isn't it interesting, just as physical gold problems have started to manifest themselves with people having problems not being able to get the gold they want, Germany not being able to get their gold back. . . Isn't it interesting we have had an emerging market currency crisis rear its head in the last two weeks? The most adversely affected countries are either buying gold or facilitating trade in gold. If you want to put an umbrella over what we are talking about, it is economic warfare."

GM, Simp. Another dog day in Southern Brasil.

I didn't advise, but...but..but... politely "requested" you to move on to this thread because of your vast knowledge in multiple disciplines and your razor sharp mind.smilies/smiley.gif

I dunno if TGB will accept my "invitation", Simp. Our respected and distinguished writer, friend and fellow commentator Rickey has just declared himself as one of the descendents of none other than Prophet Mohammed (may Allah be praised). He has been doing research on his own to find if it is really true. I thought TGB (being an anthropologist/sociologist/archeologist) might be interested in joining him in this project. Besides, as Professor Emeritus, he should be able to get a sumptuous grant from CNPQ. You would certainly agree with me when I say that this is a more challenging assignment than the "previous" one in which he just spent 6 Reais.smilies/wink.gif

Your participation in this project is vital,not only because of your expertise in cost/benefit analysis, but also due to your brief (or prolonged)exposure to the Moorish culture in Algeria. smilies/cheesy.gifsmilies/grin.gif

Ricky's blog regarding who begat who begat who cleaved unto who .... is ..., well, .... Yes I found the leap of faith that Andrada traces back to Dom Joäo IV and thus Mohammad based on documents that were found unique. More interesting was the assertion that all remaining European royal blood lines are in part Mohammadian and that that is a consequence of pillage and plunder (and presumably rape due to the "forced" nature of Zaida's history.) Although anthropology 101 was a mandadory elective (can you call it an elective if it's mandatory???) when I started my "higher" education, I'm not so sure TGB could be of much help unless he's taken a Gyno/Geneticologista under his wing and can find new ways to extract DNA from old bones purportedly relocated to Morroco.

Anyway, rather than partake of the festivities of Castile Day (financed though TGB's generous grant) I'll probably just wait for the local summertime festival of Bastille Days.

According to my limited knowledge, Prophet Mohammad was born in 570 and died in 63 AD. During his life time he founded Islam to unite all the people in the Arabian peninsula. Some "leaders" unite the povo under one flag and others under a religion. My question: What religion did he belong before he set up his new religion? Christian or Judaism? Considering that the Mohammedans and Jews have many things in common, my theory is that he was indeed of Jewish faith, against the onslaught of Christianity and to counter it he founded a new religion.

So if your ancestors were living around Mecca in 600 AD,they were contemporaries of the Prophet and could have been co-founders of the new religion. But as in the case of Mr.Mohammad, they belonged to another religion before then? What was it?

If you check the names of my ancestors it doesn't look like any of them had Jewish names.


The ancestors of many Brasilians with last names of Silveira, Silva, Pinheiro, etc; were originally of Jewsih faith and converted themselves into Catholicism long before they sailed from Europe, Ricardo. That means many of us have Jewish blood and there is no need to be upset about it. Only the "First Brailians" (Indios) have no Jewish nor Mohammedan DNA in them.smilies/wink.gifsmilies/cheesy.gif

Joao, although your questions regarding "what came before" the founding of Islam in the spiritual lives for some who no doubt had potential genetic connections to Ricky's forbearers, I think you missed his point. He has, to the best as one might can do thus far, indicated that his genetic makeup apparently includes direct blood lineage to Mohammad himself, not to Mohammad's contemporaries. The tracing of the vitals with any reasonable degree of certainty (from what I read in his blog) stops at about the 15th century, not the seventh or sixth (whereas the word vittles seems to trace back to the fourteenth if you believe the wikis).

Are you suggesting TGB has any connections to folks with "hard" sciences backdrops other than those being forced to take his course?

Joao, this is the information that I found in the internet about your question regarding the Prophet Muhammad.

The Arabs of Mecca were largely polytheistic. however, even in this society there were a few individuals referred to as Hanifs (literally 'those who turn away (from polytheism)') who rejected pagan gods believed in pure monotheism. It was the tradition of these Hanifs to meditate in solitude to isolate themselves from the Meccan society. Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) was a Hanif and he was on one such retreat in the cave of hira when he received the first revelation from Allah

His wife Khadija was a devout catholic nun, and that is why their daughter was named Fatima.

Joao da Silva/Simpleton, recently I found out some interesting facts about my ancestors and Family History.

The Souza Queiroz family branch of my family has documented that the Senator Francisco Souza Queiroz - Barão de Souza Queiroz is a direct descendant of Alfonso VI – King of Spain and his wife Princess Zayda / Isabel of Seville.

In 2005 some of my cousins in Brazil got in contact with me, because our family was in the process of writing various books documenting the history of our family and the impact that they had in Brazilian history.

One of my cousins who was a senior columnist for the “O Estado de Sao Paulo” (The newspaper in Brazil equivalent to The New York Times in the US), he told me that there were at that time six historians in Brazil doing research and writing books about our family and on the genealogical tree of the Barao de Souza Queiroz (one of my great-great grandfathers).

The historians found some interesting information regarding the ancestors of the Baron de Souza Queiroz, and they included various kings of Spain. They were able to trace his ancestors all the way to Alfonso VI – King of Spain around 1095. The interesting information about that particular ancestor is that he married the Muslim Princess Zaida/Zayda (b. 1071- d.1103) – the daughter of Muhammad III (Abu-l-Kasim) Al-Mutamid, King of Seville.

When the Muslim Princess Zaida/Zayda married Alfonso VI – King of Spain, she was baptized Catholic and they changed her name to Isabel of Seville.

Over the years I mentioned on my articles and blogs that my great-great-grandfather Francisco Souza Queiroz - Barão de Souza Queiroz was a direct descendant of Alfonso VI – King of Spain and his wife Princess Zayda / Zaida - Isabel of Seville, because I thought it was cool that they had made a movie about “El Cid” regarding events that had happened during the time Alfonso VI was the King of Spain.

Only recently when I was doing research to find out if Princess Zayda was a Sunni or a Shia that I found out that Princess Zayda/Zaida was a direct descendant of the Prophet Mohammed.

I was in shock, and find it to be mind boggling all this information, and it gets better yet during the research process I also found out that not only the Baron de Souza Queiroz was a descendant of Alfonso VI – King of Spain and his wife Princess Zayda / Zaida - Isabel of Seville, but also the founding father of Brazil “Jose Bonifacio de Andrada e Silva.”

Friday, one week ago I sent all this information to about 30 professors from the history department at Coimbra University in Lisbon, Portugal since they have a museum about “Jose Bonifacio de Andrada e Silva” in the campus of that university.

By the way, after all that research I still couldn't figure out if Princess Zayda and her father Muhammad III (Abu-l-Kasim) Al-Mutamid, King of Seville; if they were Sunnis or Shias?

Joao/Simpleton,

I found out about all this information by pure chance.

As a curiosity I started to check all that information to find out if Princess Zayda and her father were a Sunni or a Shia.

Then I found out that she was a descendant of the Prophet Muhammad.

There's a lot of information available about the descendants and ancestors of Alfonso VI – King of Spain and his wife Princess Zayda/Isabel of Seville, because these people were ancestors to the British Royal Family, and they have various books and newspaper articles on that subject.

When I was going through all that information and the lineage of the British Royal Family, I was coming across and started recognizing the names of people who were ancestors of Jose Bonifacio de Andrada e Silva.

I read a lot of material when I was doing research for my book about Jose Bonifacio, and I wrote over the years on my articles and Blogs about Jose Bonifacio ancestors from the British Royal family.

But I had gone only up to John of Gaunt, 1st Duke of Lancaster (B. 1340 – D. 1399) married Blanche of Lancaster (B. 1345 – D. 136smilies/cool.gifand they had a daughter Philippa of Lancaster (B. 1360 – D. 1415) who married John I King of Portugal (B. 1358 – D. 1433).

I mentioned a number of times that Jose Bonifacio was a descendant of
Philippa of Lancaster who married John I King of Portugal.

But I had no idea until now that John of Gaunt, 1st Duke of Lancaster was a descendant of Alfonso VI – King of Spain and his wife Princess Zayda/Isabel of Seville.

By the way Joao, most of the information is on my blog (if printed it takes about 43 pages), and it took at least 400 hours of work for me to compile all that information, even though I have a lot of practice doing that kind of research.

But I don't have the time to make all kinds of links inside my blog to make it easier for people go from one place to another place inside of the blog.

For the people who want to study in detail all the connections all the information is on my blog.

I organized the information for people to see how you go from one generation to the other, but there were some Portuguese Kings that had no children or their children died before they died, and in that case the Portuguese crown went back 2 generations as in the case of Manuel I

the crown came back to another son of Manuel I, but if you check very closely you can see that the blood lineage was never broken from the Prophet Muhammad all the way to Jose Bonifacio de Andrada e Silva.

My cousin is going back on his research paperwork to show how the entire lineage goes also from Alfonso VI – King of Spain and his wife Princess Zayda / Isabel of Seville and all the generations up to Francisco Souza Queiroz - Barão de Souza Queiroz my great-great-grandfather.

You are absolutely right, Simp. I did miss his point and now I am better clarified. Rickey is also right in saying it is a mind boggling research and fortunately he has his cousin who is also aiding him in his research.

As for TGB's high connections to "hard and soft core sciences", I think he has plenty of connections with hard core ones, but...but...but...who are of no practical utility to Rickey's project.

Right now I am going through Rickey's blogspots and may come up with more questions later.

US economic system and the world of illusion...

Here is an excellent analysis by Dr. Paul Craig Roberts:



Boom Bust – February 11, 2014

Paul Craig Roberts on the US economy and paper versus physical gold

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T14TIMr9EOg


In today's headline story, all eyes were fixed on Fed Chairwoman Janet Yellen, who delivered her first public remarks to the US House Financial-Services Committee. In addition, in a lawsuit filed on Monday, the non-profit group Better Markets has challenged the constitutionality of the $13 billion JPMorgan Chase mortgage settlement with the US Justice Department. And in Washington, Republican leaders in the House of Representatives agreed to advance legislation, raising Washington's borrowing authority without conditions. Erin Ade reports.

Then, Erin conducts a wide-ranging interview with economist Paul Craig Roberts, an Assistant Secretary of the Treasury in the Reagan Administration and a co-founder of Reaganomics. He has voiced his concerns about the strength of the US economy, US politics, and US civil liberties. Roberts also believes the US is playing fast and loose with the monetary system and the value of the dollar. He speculates that, as the German Bundesbank has begun repatriating its gold from overseas out of storage in places like the Federal Reserve, the Fed will not be able to make delivery because it doesn't physically possess the gold. Similarly, Roberts does not believe Gold ETF funds have enough physical gold to back their exchange traded fund shares.

Wrapping up our money theme, in today's "Big Deal", Erin and Boom Bust producer Edward Harrison discuss the outlawing of Bitcoin wallet apps on iOS, Apple's mobile platform, and the rise of ePayments in the mobile world.


Note:

Dr. Paul Craig Roberts is the Chairman of the The Institute for Political Economy. In a varied career, spanning academia, journalism, business and public service, he has held numerous senior academic positions in universities; was an associate editor and columnist for The Wall Street Journal ; and was appointed by President Reagan as Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Economic Policy during Reagan's first term in office; after which he served as a consultant to both the U.S. Department of Defense and the U.S. Department of Commerce.

Richard Wolff: Global Capitalism: February 2014 Monthly Update – February 12, 2014
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vMXfBm0IPd0

Time: 2 hrs. 3 min.

We will begin with short updates on major economic developments since December:

Obama's minimum wage policy, the Federal Reserve's "tapering policy" and the new Janet Yellen leadership, slowdowns in China and the emerging markets, and Thomas Piketty's new book Capital in the 21st Century on capitalism and inequality.

We will devote major discussion to:

The chief causes and social effects of increasingly unequal wealth and income distributions.

The myth of returning manufacturing jobs in the US.


*****


Richard Wolff on minute 27 of his seminar he mentioned an interesting fact which has not been mentioned in any place else in the US: the US government announced in January that the US GDP finally had reached the level of 2007; if you don't include the increase in population during that period.

The US economic system had “ZERO” growth during that 6 year period, but during that same period China was able to grow their economy by 90 %, almost doubling the size of their economy.

USA 0 vs. China 90

The other item that he mentioned on point 1 hr and 56 min of the video regarding the United States “Prison Industrial Complex”... This is a subject that I have been writing about it for the last 13 years and in one of my books I called it the “Brain Dead Strategy.”

The financial system is near meltdown worse than 2008. Look at the amount of banksters who committed suicide in the last two weeks – A bout 3 days ago Alex Jones mentioned on his show that more than 20 banksters killed themselves or someone killed them, because of the what's going on regarding this massive financial crisis that is spinning completely out of control, and the possibility of an international monetary collapse.

By the way, the last banksters who committed suicide in the last two weeks was from JP Morgan....


Start watching this video on point 1:34 to 2:00 to see the interview with Paul Craig Roberts, and from point 2:12 to 3:05 to see the interview with Gerald Celente.

At point 2:34 of the video Alex Jones mentioned the high number of bankers that committed suicide in the last 2 weeks.

On the Wednesday, February 12 broadcast of the Alex Jones Show, Jones breaks down the stock market's heavy reliance upon the fed's QE bond buying stimulus and easy money printing schemes, as the market reacts eerily similar to how it did right before the stock market crash of 1929 which ushered in the Great Depression.

On today's show, Alex speaks with American economist and Assistant Secretary of the Treasury in the Reagan Administration, Paul Craig Roberts, about how Washington funded NGOs are purposely attempting to deliver Ukraine into the clutches of the EU. Jones also discusses the very real prospect of engaging in war with China, Russia or Iran with renowned international trends forecaster and publisher of the Trends Journal, Gerald Celente. We'll also cover why it's better to be a prepper in Atlanta during a snowstorm, the possibility of coordinated attacks on the power grid, and other hot news items.

Slaves Financing Master

The Economist - “Putin's inferno”
http://www.economist.com/printedition/2014-02-22


In the south of Brazil we have a significant Ukrainian community, and they are quiet regarding the events that are happening in the Ukraine.

The Economist got the story wrong again, instead of Putin's Inferno - the tittle should be "Look the result of America's $ 5 billion dollars investment in Ukraine."

America is on a roll destroying one country after another first Iraq, then Libya, Venezuela, and now Ukraine. And we have drones all over Africa to terrorize the people in the African Continent from North to South.

The US is also in the process of destabilizing the countries in South America including Brazil, Colombia, Argentina, and Venezuela.

“New Vietnam in South America”
Written by Ricardo C. Amaral

http://newvietnaminsouthameric...ica_2.html


The United States is in the process of starting another Vietnam, but this time around in South America.

We have discussed a lot over the years at Brazzil magazine the subject of other countries trying to take control of the natural resources of Brazil in one way or another.


*****


Here is how you connect the dots.....the basic story line still the same.


Brazzil Magazine – September 2002
“Countdown to Armageddon”
Written by Ricardo C. Amaral


Quoting from this article:

...Slaves Financing Master

On the other hand the United States needs to borrow about US$ 1.3 billion per day from foreigners to finance its current account trade deficit. The actual U.S. current account trade deficit for 2001 was over US$ 420 billion. As reported by Mr. Martin Wolf, a respected Financial Times of London journalist, on February 26, 2002, "In his assessment, one of the most likely sources of unrecorded funding for this U.S. deficit is capital flight from poor countries. In other words, precious resources from poor countries are being used to finance the bloated consumerism habits of the world's richest people."

He also mentioned that, "At the end of 2000, the net international investment position of the U.S. was minus US$ 2,187 billion, a little over a fifth of gross domestic product. The estimated net international position was minus US$ 2,600 billion at the end of 2001. ...The IMF says that last year the U.S. current account deficit was financed by a European Union contribution of around US$ 210 and the balance by Japan, Asian developing countries, oil exporters and the capital flight from poor countries."

Since the U.S. military budget of US$ 379 billion for 2003 is so close to the estimated amount of the U.S. current account deficit of over US$ 420 billion, we can make a connection and conclude that the people financing the U.S. current account deficit are the actual people who are financing the U.S. military expending. From another perspective, seems to me that the slaves are the financial backers of their master. They are financing the bombs that might be dropped on their lands if they get out of line in the future.

Epidemic of International Banking Deaths

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0R-VsGNe10E#t=646


The banksters on the inside at JP Morgan (The Morgue) they must be talking among themselves and they must be very nervous, and they might be wondering who's next.

The problem is massive and it's getting completely out of control.

In a matter of a month all these bankers have been killed (officially they committed suicide).

Two of the bankers from JP Morgan one in London (Gabriel Magee) and the other one from New York (Ryan Henry Crane), they were both young and they had very similar jobs. Ryan Crane was in charge of platform trading and he knew the ins and out of the programs, and he was in constant communications with London. And Gabriel Magee was the head of IT in London and these two guys would be looking at the same systems, the same trade desks, the same spreadsheets, they would be looking at the same numbers. They shared information constantly. What these guys uncovered something so incredible that if the word out get out you would see a massive amount of arrests and people going to jail.

This suicide is a cleaning house method that is underway. What these guys uncovered that was so big that led to their demise?

Most of these guys were young, they had very good lives, a stable family, and hundreds of thousands of US dollars in the bank, and some of them had a little over one million dollars in the bank, and they had no reason to kill themselves is what family and friends are saying.

Going back to 2012, the London whale trades turned to be a major loss of money to JP Morgan, first were reported $ 2 billion dollars loss, then $ 5, then $ 7, then $ 10 billion dollars, and one year later was reported that the real loss in derivatives was over $ 100 billion dollars in that one trade, and that was confirmed by various reporters and people from the inside.

He had massive derivative losses and to hedge his bets he used as collateral Chinese gold – the Chinese were storing this gold in London at JP Morgan, and when that trade went bust they also lost the Chinese gold.

Now in the fall of 2013 JP Morgan announced that they were getting out of the commodities business, a major player was leaving the commodities market, that was a shock to the system, and soon after that they also announced that they were selling their world-headquarters (real estate) in lower Manhattan.

That building has the largest private bank vault in the world with ten stories underground the size of a football field and connected directly underground to the New York Federal Reserve Bank.

They sold that property valued about $ 3 billion dollars to the Chinese government for $ 720 million, about 1/3 of the value of the property.

Why they sold so cheaply that building? To make up for the lost Chinese gold that JP Morgan used as collateral.

The head of the agency that does financial regulation in Germany said that there's massive fraud in going on in the gold market that is even bigger than what is going on with Libor.

There's massive manipulation in the forex,, in the gold,, silver, and oil markets.

When the German regulators started investigating the Deutsche Bank they started realizing that something was going on and their investigation took them to the London system that fix the price of gold, and they were finding fraud everywhere and two major players Deutsche Bank and JP Morgan had a very close trading relationship. And at the same time JP Morgan announced that they were getting out of the commodities business the Deutsche Bank announced the same thing, and soon after that William Broeksmit the co-chief executive of Deutsche Bank was found dead in his London house.

There's massive fraud and corruption that is being uncovered in the:

1) The Libor scandal has affected $ 800 trillion dollars of paper transactions.

2) Massive fraud and corruption in the “precious metal market.”

3) Massive fraud and corruption in the “forex market.”

written by Ricardo C. Amaral, February 23, 2014

Part 2 of 3

What is underway in South Africa, in Venezuela, in the Ukraine, and in many other places has everything to do with the massive fraud and corruption that is going on in these markets.

All these problems are connected and the global Anglo/American banking structure is collapsing and petrodollar system is fighting for its survival.

Today we have 24 of the largest economies in the world are setting up currency swaps to by pass the US dollar.

Australia just made an agreement to buy oil from the Chinese in yuan to bypass the US dollar.

When you look at in 2012, and 2013, in those 2 years, every single trade agreement, every single global market and regulation have to do with accepting the convertibility of the yuan, and the establishment of gold as a trade settlement, and nothing in the last two years of regulations nothing mentions the US dollar.


Shocks to the petrodollar system

1) Russia made a major $ 270 billion dollar energy deal with China and the major Chinese company will be the wholesaler of Russian oil.

2) Russia to buy Iranian oil to the tune of 500,000 barrels per day, and sell it at a very sweet profit.

3) Iran to sell oil to Turkey and India and settle it with gold.

4) Countries such as Brazil are in the process of selling their commodities to China and Russia in local currency.

5) And many countries are entering currency agreements with China to trade in their local currency, including the European Union and China.


In the forex market today the US dollar is synonymous with volatility, and devaluation.

We are going through the biggest event that will affect the lives of people living in the US, we are in the midst of the greatest transition in economic history.

Because the US dollar was the main reserve currency the US had a major benefit of being able to export its inflation, because food and commodities were traded in US dollar – and that system is coming very quickly to an end. And that is going to end the end of empire and the end of the Anglo/American banking structure.

The Chinese are buying idle manufacturing and industrial parks all over the United States to use the massive amount of US dollars that they are holding, and they are buying hard assets with their US dollars.

And when these global currency re-set does occur you are going to see 70 to 80 percent devaluation of the US dollar – then what happens to all these factories and industrial parks that the Chinese are buying?

As a result Americans will be an of the lowest wage earners in the world, and Americans will be working for nothing on these sweatshops making all kinds of goods for the Chinese.

That is where our system is heading to.

Part 3 of 3


In the last month we had an epidemic of International Banking Deaths

The latest count is up to 21 suicides so far after the last banker suicide from JP Morgan, and certainly there's more to go...

Two high-profile and high-up American bankers in London have killed themselves in separate incidents that took place within a couple days of each other.

A string of recent deaths among finance workers has stunned the City of London, a 39-year-old man died Tuesday morning, January 28, 2014 after falling from J.P. Morgan Chase & Co.'s skyscraper in

Canary Wharf, one of London's main financial districts, according to a police statement. The J.P. Morgan employee, Gabriel Magee, landed on a ninth-floor roof and was pronounced dead at the scene. Mr. Magee was a vice president in the investment bank's

He was a vice president in the corporate and investment bank technology department having joined in 2004, moving to Britain from the United States in 2007.

Mr Magee, who lived in North London, was an expert in highly specialist software which reaps huge profits for the US company by predicting market patterns.

It is understood that Mr Magee’s girlfriend had reported him missing the previous evening.


***


On Jan. 26, 2014 William Broeksmit, age 58, a former Deutsche Bank and Merrill Lynch executive with close ties to the co-chief executive of Deutsche Bank was found dead in his South Kensington home in London after police received reports of a man found hanging in his house.

Probably on the evening of Jan. 27, 2014 a senior manager at J.P. Morgan’s European headquarters plunged to his demise from the bank’s headquarters in the same city. And several days later, in Washington state, the chief economist for Russell Investments fell down a 50-foot embankment and died.

Ryan Henry Crane, a Harvard graduate, was an Executive Director in JP Morgan's Global Program Trading desk. Ryan Henry Crane of Stamford, Connecticut died Monday, February 3, 2014. He was 37-year-old who worked at the bank in New York, and was found dead in his Connecticut home.

In the latest of a series of fatal falls, a 33-year-old J.P. Morgan employee leapt from the roof of J.P. Morgan’s Hong Kong headquarters on Tuesday, February 18, 2014, plunging thirty stories to his death.

According to police, the JPMorgan banker in Hong Kong who committed suicide, Dennis Li Junjie, 33, jumped from the roof of the 30-storey Chater House after attempts to talk him down failed.

In a related case

Police have yet to find any trace of David Bird, age 55, a 20-year veteran of the Wall Street Journal who covered commodities markets and was last seen leaving his New Jersey home January 11, 2014.

Bird was reporting on global and U.S. energy commodities at the time of his death, a subject under investigation by the U.S. Senate’s Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations for possible manipulation. In December, he reported on OPEC’s struggle to maintain oil market stability; his beat also included shale oil reserves.

The Senate took up the cause of possible oil and aluminum market manipulation last July. Among those targeted in the probe, according to The Journal, were J.P. Morgan, Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley.

In the last month we had an epidemic of International Banking Deaths - The latest count is up to 21 bankers suicides (or ?) so far in 2014 - including the last banker suicide from JP Morgan, and since the great purge is on, certainly there are a lot more banker suicides on the way..

Today there's massive fraud, manipulation and corruption in various important markets including the gold market, in the forex market, the oil market and so on...

I wouldn't be surprised if the current “Epidemic of International Banking Deaths” starts spreading also to an organization such as "Goldman Sacks the Pillage People" and their network of thieves...

In the same way that the banksters on the inside at JP Morgan (The Morgue) must be talking among themselves and they must be very nervous, and they might be wondering who's next...the scoundrels at
"Goldman Sacks the Pillage People" and their network of thieves probably are wondering when the great banking purge of 2014 is going to catch up also with them.

In this brand new video from RT, Max Keiser confirms that first reported on Before It’s News that up to 20 bankers have been found dead and Lloyd Blankfein appears to be the reason why. Stating that either (a) the bankers were about to blow the whistle on Lloyd Blankfein and he had them ‘taken out’(Is THIS why the ‘fat cats’ are running scared?) or (b) they all committed suicide because they were ALL associated with Lloyd Blankfein, Max concludes “imagine that you’re associated with Lloyd Blankfein and you KNOW that your boss is committing a financial holocaust, WOULD YOU NOT want to kill yourself?”

http://rt.com/news/donetsk-kha...otest-365/

Thousands of pro-Russian demonstrators across eastern Ukraine and Crimea are protesting against the new government, with administration buildings being seized in several cities. Gunshots have been reported as anti- and pro-Maidan protesters clash.

Protesters in Kharkov and Donetsk stormed local government offices and removed Ukrainian flags, replacing them with the Russian tricolor on Saturday.

Between 7,000 to 10,000 demonstrators gathered in the center of Donetsk, a large industrial city in eastern Ukraine. Reportedly, protesters seized the regional administration building. While a group of demonstrators were storming the building from the central entrance, a crowd in Lenin Square in front of it kept chanting “Russia!”

Democracy: “American Style”

Noam Chomsky: American Foreign Policy in Latin America
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pnhmq9Hl0qY

This video is the first half of an interview with Professor Noam Chomsky on American Foreign Policy in Latin America, and Latin American integration. In the interview, Noam Chomsky addresses the traditional relationship between the United States and Latin America, the impact of neoliberal economic policies, and Latin America's "turn to the left."



**********


Fareed Zakaria on GPS the CNN TV Show interviewed today (March 2, 2014) on his TV program two ghosts from the past (Madeleine Albright and Zbigniew Brzezinski) whom were trying to validate the illegitimate government in Ukraine that overthrew the legitimate democratically elected government of Ukraine.

Both of them were saying that by the “American Style” of democracy the illegitimate government in Ukraine should be recognized as the new government of Ukraine, and the US government has a solid experience on that regard of legitimate democratically elected governments that the US helped to destabilize and overthrow over the years. And there are a number of examples as follows:

1) The CIA helped overthrow the legitimate democratically elected government of Iran in 1953, and installed on its place a nasty dictatorship.

2) In 1973 the CIA helped overthrow the legitimate democratically elected government of Chile, and also installed on its place another nasty dictatorship.

3) In 2002 the CIA helped to overthrow the legitimate democratically elected government of Venezuela, and also tried to install some puppet government that collapse almost immediately.

4) In 2009 a group backed by the United States overthrew the legitimate democratically elected government of Manuel Zelaya in Honduras – and the US recognized the new government that took over by force.

5) In 2013 the Egyptian army overthrew the legitimate democratically elected government of President Mohamed Morsi, and the Egyptian army has been in power ever since with the blessings of the United States government.

The Us also overthrew the governments of Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, and so on...just to mention a few.

Based on this type of “American Style” of democracy Madeleine Albright and Zbigniew Brzezinski, were making the US case in favor of the people who overthrew also the legitimate democratically elected government of Ukraine.

According to the United States government dogma there's nothing wrong if the legitimate democratically elected government of a country gets out of line for some reason, and their government is overthrown to accommodate Washington's wishes.

People from around the world should be aware by now about the principles of democracy “American Style.”

Reality check: about Democracy “American Style”

Reality check:

Historian William Blum recently documented that, since 1945, the US has attempted to overthrow more than 50 governments, has grossly interfered in democratic elections in at least 30 countries and has dropped bombs on the people of more than 30 others. Despite the efforts of Chomsky and others, the US carries on regardless. It is able to do so simply because it can. It has the military might.

Before asp jumps in and barfs over your alliance with chumpass, couple questions:
If passing out free stinger missles, selling some highly subsidized tanks, F-16s, (or subsequently withholding them - just ask Musharraf) or just plain spending someone into oblivion (former USSR now regrouping and expanding) doesn't get you what you want, what's the big deal? Should we just draw red lines in the sand?
Although Dilma was not the first ever elected female president in the world like the greater populace of Brasil did and does believe, take a look at Christina (who didn't even have to go to a run off election) and what her critics say about her: "Critics of Kirchner's administration charged it with corruption, crony capitalism, falsification of public statistics, harassment of Argentina's independent media and use of the tax agency as a censorship tool". Are Obama, Dilma, Chistina, et. al., all using the same playbook????

Washington Decides To Take On Russia And China

By Paul Craig Roberts
http://orientalreview.org/2013...and-china/


What are the Ukrainian protests about? On the surface, the protests don’t make sense. The Ukrainian government made the correct decision to stay out of the EU. Ukraine’s economic interests lie with Russia, not with the EU. This is completely obvious.

The EU wants Ukraine to join so that Ukraine can be looted, like Latvia, Greece, Spain, Italy, Ireland, and Portugal. The situation is so bad in Greece, for example, that the World Health Organization reports that some Greeks are infecting themselves with HIV in order to receive the 700 euro monthly benefit for the HIV-infected.

The US wants Ukraine to join so it can become a location for more of Washington’s missile bases against Russia.

Why would Ukrainians want to be looted?

Why would Ukrainians want to become targets for Russia’s Iskander Missiles as a host country for Washington’s aggression against Russia?

Why would Ukrainians having gained their sovereignty from Russia want to lose it to the EU?

Obviously, an intelligent, aware, Ukrainian population would not accept these costs of joining the EU.

So, why the protests?

The snipers who shot at protesters and police in Kiev were allegedly hired by Maidan leaders, according to a leaked phone conversation between the EU foreign affairs chief Catherine Ashton and Estonian foreign affairs minister, which has emerged online.

“There is now stronger and stronger understanding that behind the snipers, it was not Yanukovich, but it was somebody from the new coalition,” Urmas Paet said during the conversation.

“I think we do want to investigate. I mean, I didn’t pick that up, that’s interesting. Gosh,” Ashton answered.

The call took place after Estonia’s Foreign Minister Urmas Paet visited Kiev on February 25, following the peak of clashes between the pro-EU protesters and security forces in the Ukrainian capital.

John Williams of Shadowstats.com says, "Don't look for the U.S. dollar as the safe haven." Williams contends, "Historically, the dollar has been the safe haven in a political or financial crisis, but that hasn't been the case for four or five years now. Instead, what you have seen is a flight to other traditional safe havens such as gold and the Swiss Franc. The dollar has lost its magic. Nobody wants to hold it." What about the Russians dumping the dollar in retaliation for U.S. sanctions because of the Ukraine invasion? Williams says, "So, if the Russians follow through and convince the rest of the world that they are going to do it and it looks like China may join them, a lot of countries will want to dump dollars and get out ahead of the crowd."

Brasil lidera queda entre gigantes globais...everything is relative!!!!
written by Ricardo C. Amaral, March 10, 2014


Folha de Sao Paulo – 10 de Marco de 2014

“Brasil lidera queda entre gigantes globais”

http://www1.folha.uol.com.br/m...bais.shtml


Regarding the above article:

Among the 500 largest companies in the world, the 10 companies that that lost the most in market capitalization in the last 12 months, they include 4 major Brazilian companies as follows:

Petrobras: -34.4 %

Vale: -29.6 %

Banco do Brasil: -29.1 %

Bradesco: -25.1 %


With a loss of 16 % against the US dollar in the last 12 months, the real ranked number 4 in terms of devaluation the US dollar among 31 currencies.

Since the ranking is measured in US dollar the fluctuation in currencies also has an impact on the results of the list. And without considering any other factor, right there, all these companies lost around 16 % of its value just because of the “currency wars” that has been going on for years.

Around July 2011 when the Brazilian real was trading at R$ 1.56 = US$ 1 – Since that time I started writing that the Brazilian real needed a devaluation against the US dollar in the range of 35 % to 40 % to protect the Brazilian economy. That devaluation would have brought the real to a trading range between R$ 2.10 to R$ 2.20 versus US$ 1.

That was to protect Brazilian manufacturing companies, and the tourism industry in Brazil.

And I also said that when the real had reached that level then things had to be reevaluated again, to see what was happening around the world regarding the “currency wars” and its race to the bottom.

Since July 2011 when I started calling for the devaluation of the real – a little over two and half years later the real is trading on March 10, 2014 at R$ 2.34 = US$ 1 – a devaluation of about 50 %.

Everything considered of what has been going on around the world in the currency markets – that rate is reasonable to protect the Brazilian economy from further manufacturing losses, and gives a good exchange rate to foreigners to enjoy the tourism, and the world cup that is around the corner.

If anything this exchange rate level against the US dollar it's good for Brazil in the long run.

And also keep the “Hot Money” out of Brazil to distort the entire economy and create all kinds of problems for the Brazilian economy.

And keep in mind that all these artificial currency manipulations that is going on, and hot money that travels around the world creating havoc in many economies in part is a result of massive mismanagement in Washington by the Federal Reserve, massive US government intervention, and manipulation of markets, and this world of illusion is crashing faster than most people realized.

At the end of the day, Petrobras, and Vale still be there with their vast resources, as the Anglo/American banking system has a major collapse.

My forecast about the real and the "Currency Wars" - Hit the nail on the head

Here is a conversation that I had with a friend of mine on Facebook about 3 years ago about the Brazilian currency the real and the “Currency Wars.”


Posted today on Facebook - March 11, 2014



Ricardo C. Amaral: Gustavo, I just found a conversation that we had right here on Facebook on July 29, 2011 when the Brazilian real was trading at R$ 1.56 = US$ 1.

I posted that information also at Brazzil magazine, because all the stuff that I was writing about the "Currency Wars" and people thought that I was crazy for calling for a 35 % to 40 % devaluation of the real against the US dollar.

Over the years I had made many predictions about the euro vs, the US dollar and many of the currency traders at the Elite Trader Forum used to laugh about my predictions, and time after time my forecast hit right on the nose - and over a period of time they stopped challenging me, and some of them asked me because they wanted to know what I was doing and: how I did my currency forecasts?

Cenário econômico preocupante
by Gustavo Tamm Brandão on Friday, July 29, 2011 at 12:22am ·


O Banco Central não irá aumentar os juros (ou não muito), o que seria necessário para conter a inflação. O governo argumenta que um aumento dos juros iria prejudicar o crescimento. Argumenta ainda que "o importante é que a inflação esteja em linha descendente", todavia o ângulo dessa linha está se alongando cada vez mais, haja vista que o alcance das metas foi novamente adiado para 2013. Com uma inflação presente, os assalariados reivindicarão correções cada vez maiores e o círculo vicioso provocará muitos problemas. Nada pior que um governo capaz de tudo para manter-se no poder

Ricardo C. Amaral: At the end of July of last year a friend of mine from Facebook posted the above info and asked me my opinion about that subject, and here is a copy of the ongoing discussion:


*****



Ricardo C. Amaral: Today the real must be overvalued against the game that the United States has been playing with the US dollar and China with the yuan.

In my opinion, the time is now for Finance Minister Guido Mantega to announce what I have been suggesting since last year: a 40 percent devaluation of the real, and adopt a fixed rate currency system for the real pegged to a basket of currencies including the US dollar and the Chinese yuan to anchor the real against the US dollar and the yuan – and keep the new currency system until the market conditions change and at that time the Brazilian central bank would make the necessary adjustments.

The only reason I can think that he is not doing that is because the financial markets in Brazil must be in the pocket of Wall Street.

Gustavo Tamm Brandão O câmbio hoje se desvalorizou, após algumas medidas do governo. Todavia caiu em todo o mundo, como exemplo, a desvalorização brasileira foi praticamente igual à inglesa, portanto não temos como saber se houve eficácia do governo ou apenas um efeito mundial.

*****


Ricardo C. Amaral A devaluation of 40 percent of the real it would break that cycle of “Hot Money” going to Brazil to chase the high interest rates that they can get in Brazil.

And the “Hot Money” is creating various economic bubbles in Brazil resulting in higher inflation.

Gustavo Tamm Brandão Há vozes acusando um enfraquecimento da indústria em função do câmbio.

July 29, 2011 at 2:01am


*****


Ricardo C. Amaral: Gustavo, if Guido Mantega does not follow this strategy then the real will continue appreciating against the US dollar and the yuan with catastrophic consequences for the Brazilian economy.

But regarding the currency manipulation of the United States and China the country that is being screwed in a big way is: Brazil.

In the last 2 years the real appreciated 45 percent against the US and Chinese currency - resulting in a loss of 100,000 manufacturing jobs in Brazil in 2009 and another 60,000 manufacturing jobs in 2010. And things are not getting any better for Brazil in 2011.

This foreign exchange policy of the Brazilian government is creating a major problem for the Brazilian economy, because is increasing the cost of doing business in Brazil and products made in Brazil is becoming very expensive, and they are also putting the tourism industry out of business in Brazil. Brazil is becoming a very expensive place for people from other countries to go for vacation.

I am aware that some major Brazilian corporations have been borrowing large amounts of money in the United States to take advantage of the lower interest rate than they can borrow in Brazil.

I also remember that over the years in similar circumstance major Brazilian corporations used the same strategy in the past only to be caught by surprise when the Brazilian currency devalued against the US dollar and in no time made these corporations financially insolvent because of these loans in US dollar.

Ricardo C. Amaral:

Historical exchange rate (BRL:USD)

29 Jul 2011: 1.5491

31 Jul 2012: 2.0573

Gustavo, in the last 12 months the Brazilian Real decreased in value versus the US dollar by 33 percent.

When the Brazilian Real was trading around 1:55 to US$ 1 – I had been calling for a Brazilian Real devaluation between 35 to 40 percent versus the Us dollar and also versus the Chinese yuan – after one year we are almost there.

I also had been calling for a Central Bank cut in the Selic rate all the way down to around 7 percent to drive economic activity up inside Brazil and at the same time to drive the “Hot Money” out of the Brazilian economy.

We are almost at the point that I thought the Brazilian Real and the Selic rate should be – but there's one problem, in the last 12 months the economic situation deteriorated drastically in Euroland, and also in China, India, and so on.... - we are in an economic race to the bottom.

The Euroland economy is imploding faster than most people realized, and we have also a major economic slowdown in China and India, and the combination of all this massive global economic decline it will have a negative affect in the Brazilian economy.

In another words, I am not sure if the 33 percent devaluation of the Brazilian Real that we had so far versus the US dollar and the Chinese yuan it is enough to protect the manufacturing base of Brazilian industry and also the tourism industry in Brazil.

We are in a race to the bottom , and Brazil has to keep pace with the currency manipulation by the US Federal Reserve (their series of QE program – artificial manipulation and intervention in the financial market) – and also with the games played by the Chinese government regarding the Chinese yuan.

1) Lindsey Graham (R- SC)

2) John McCain (R-Ariz.)


But now, John McCain has been making a very solid case to move to the number one spot:

1) John McCain (R-Ariz.)

2) Lindsey Graham (R- SC)


For the number 3 spot on this list the race is very close between Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz.

John McCain (The Moron) calls U.S. Military support for Ukraine “right and decent”

http://politicalticker.blogs.c...nt-page-4/

(CNN) - Speaking in Kiev, Sen. John McCain called Saturday for the United States to provide long-term military assistance to Ukraine, saying it is "the right and decent thing to do," as reports surfaced that Russian troops had traveled farther north into Ukraine from Crimea.

McCain was part of a bipartisan delegation of U.S. senators who traveled to Kiev ahead of Sunday's secession referendum in Crimea. The White House and U.S. allies in Europe have denounced the referendum as unconstitutional and illegal because Russian troops have essentially taken over the southern Ukraine peninsula.

McCain also had strong words for President Barack Obama in an op-ed appearing in The New York Times. He called for the President to take actions to restore the United States' credibility and strength around the world.

Ukraine's Right Sector members stormed and torched government buildings - and attacked unarmed police squads. They also consistently rejected the concessions offered by the Yanukovich administration, when it was trying in vain to calm the unrest. And now, they have become arguably one of the most influential groups in Ukraine. British MP George Galloway says the West needs to recognize the dangers it poses

http://news.yahoo.com/russia-t...ector.html


MOSCOW (Reuters) - A Kremlin-backed journalist issued a stark warning to the United States about Moscow's nuclear capabilities on Sunday as the White House threatened sanctions over Crimea's referendum on union with Russia.

"Russia is the only country in the world that is realistically capable of turning the United States into radioactive ash," television presenter Dmitry Kiselyov said on his weekly current affairs show.

To be honest, I think the majority of the citizens in Crimeiatoria that haven't already escaped would honestly accept an all out nuclear option vs having the gun continuously held to their heads by the liliPutins. Can we add that to the next referendum?

I didn't like this particular comments of yours, because you used the name of the city founded by my ancestor Jon without his or my authorization.

But...but...but... I hold no grudge against you (because of the bright & stupendous comments you have been writing in other threads) and therefore decided not to "report abuse" to the administrator of this august forum.smilies/smiley.gifsmilies/wink.gifsmilies/cheesy.gifsmilies/grin.gif
Regarding the Ukrainian crisis
written by Ricardo C. Amaral, March 18, 2014

March 18, 2014

Here is a simple solution for the Ukrainian crisis.


The well educated Ukrainians have been immigrating to Brazil since the collapse of the Soviet Union. There were two countries that a large number of Ukrainians immigrated to: 1) Canada, and 2) Brazil.

I didn't know that we had an estimated 200,000 Ukrainians living in Brazil today.

A friend of mine who moved to Brazil about 5 years ago to start a business, he traveled all over Brazil, and he knows Brazil very well. And about a year ago he had mentioned to me that they had this large colony of Ukrainians in the South of Brazil, and they were a very well educated bunch, and they had a lot of prosperous businesses in Brazil.

I had no idea that we had all these Ukrainians in Brazil.

We need to look to the positive side of the Ukrainian crisis, it's a win/win situation for everybody if the immigration trend continues - the well educated Ukrainians continue going to Brazil. And Brazil offers a great future to all these people.

The uneducated Ukrainians, and the troublemakers can go to Canada, and become farmers in that vast country with such a small population.

From the Russian point of view; they take back the Ukraine with a bigger concentration of Russians inside what used to be called Ukrainian territory, and the people who were against the Russians have immigrated to some place else.

Everybody wins with this strategy...

What I mean by "the well educated Ukrainians" - the Ukrainians with engineering degrees, or other advanced degrees in Physics, Chemistry, and so on....

The troublemakers even with advanced degrees; they can go to Canada.

Jim Sinclair: Russia Can Collapse US Economy, Gold Update, Silver is Gold on Steroids & More

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KXGPzDq45gM


Gold expert Jim Sinclair is issuing a warning of a massive downside risk to U.S. sanctions against Russia. Sinclair says watch the "struggling dollar" and Russia accepting any currency for oil and natural gas. Sinclair explains, "It's struggling . . . because it smells the real teeth of retaliation for sanctions being in the simple acceptance of any currency whatsoever for payment for gas to Europe. Believe me, they will settle in other currencies. . . . It makes energy cheaper. Why in the world would anyone want to pay in dollars if they can pay in their own currency? Russia could retaliate in a way that would have phenomenal impact on the U.S. dollar. . . . Russia has the upper hand. They have it in their ability to turn the U.S. economy upside down and into collapse. There is no question whatsoever. Putin doesn't need a nuclear bomb. He has a nuclear economic bomb that he can set off at any time."

What would the price of gold be this year? Sinclair predicts, "Gold has $2,000 an ounce in its sites in 2014." On silver, Sinclair says, "Silver is gold on steroids. When gold takes off, silver goes up faster. . . . So, the idea you are going to get an old high on silver or better is a given."

I have been saying to my friends that we are going to see the price of gold reach around US$ 2,000 per oz by sometime in 2015.

Annihilation of U.S. Dollar Coming-Jim Sinclair – October 30, 2013
http://www.jsmineset.com/2013/...-sinclair/

Renowned gold expert Jim Sinclair says financial calamity is just around the corner for America. Sinclair contends, “We are facing the annihilation of currency. We are facing the shift of America as the leading and most influential nation of the world to some form of banana republic. . . . If it wasn’t for food stamps, we would be facing long lines of people waiting for free food.” For gold, everything hinges on the U.S. dollar, and Sinclair says, “I think the dollar gets hammered. I believe we are headed for hyperinflation.”

Sinclair predicts retirement funds and bank deposits are going to be taken by the government. How much of your money could you lose? Sinclair says, “In Cypress, it was a total of 83%. . . . Cypress is the blueprint, and it’s what we are going to experience here in the United States.”

Jim Sinclair, who has just accepted the position as Chairman of the Advisory Board for the establishment of the Singapore Gold Exchange, says, “The exchange will trade physical gold only and not future gold. . . . You have to make delivery.” Meaning, there will be no naked short selling or manipulation of this new market. Sinclair says, “This will emancipate gold from the paper price.” How high will gold go? Sinclair predicts, by 2016, “Gold will be $3,200 to $3,500 an ounce.”
