    WE WILL RETURN.
    Although some cretins must be celebrating in Brasil because Dilma Rousseff was finally suspended, it's necesary to say that the mechanism she used to finance the brasilian budget, which is the main motive of her suspension, is the same one that was used by ALL the former administrations, however there was never any impeachment for anybody, which shows perfectly that she is no more than a victim of the voracity of many cynics who are making such a big farce, just to take her out from the government, because they can't tolerate the fact that they lost, it's pretty obvious that they have no enough dignity to accept their defeat. Beside, those false democrats don't see that they can create an environment of violence, which ends is always absolutly dramatic, those sons of a bitch are cleaning their asses with the popular will of 54 millions of citizens who decided to put Dilma in office again.
    It's pretty evident that they won't never forgive Lula and Dilma the fact that both took more than 40 millions of brasilians out from poverty, who not even could eat meat, because they had no teeth.
    Unfortunatelly, the brasilian society is more reactionary than our's, that's why many people asked for her renounce in the streets, ignoring that she is a legitimate president, voted by a majority, those imbeciles often say that she's a corrupt, but nobody has shown a proof of it, not even the corporate press which is one the main supporters of this coup.
    People in Brasil have a huge fight from now, because they'll be victims of a reactionary and illegitimate government, which will aligne the nation to the interests of U. S. A. and of the European Union, but sooner or later, we will return.

    “ The coup” = the vote of the democratically elected legislature, by an overwhelming supermajority of elected representatives, to remove a criminal whose blatant crimes can no longer be tolerated by the populace, a populace that gives her an approval rating of about 10 percent.

    But there will always be the populists such as Axel. Voice, and Reekie who favour the perpetuation of leftist criminals in office.

    It's not Dilma helping the poor that's the issue - it's Dilma helping herself!

    Dilma is impeached so that she can be investigated without her intervening as President.

    It's an unfortunate by product of an electorate that produces so many political parties. Is that ideals or public service get pushed aside in favour of wanting to become part of the 'ruling coalition' for personal gain. The Italians have suffered from the same problem.

    I say we, because i feel identifficated in ideological terms with what Lula and Dilma represent, in fact, if i were brasilian, i would vote for pt, in the same way that surelly you feel identifficated with Macri's ideas, i think i was clear enough, right?
    On the other hand, the motive of her suspension isn't based on a accusation of corruption, it's actually based on a hypocritical excuse that i already explained in my comment (1).

    ”“I confess, I never imagined it would be necessary to fight against a coup in my country,” Rousseff said in a speech to the nation.
    Well, considering her IQ, no surprise.
    After 1985, and until 2003 the PT tried to impeach every president - only Collor's, with ample backing, was successful. Now, they are just tastting a bit of their own poison .
    The opposition, in 2008 (after the 'mensalão' was uncovered), actually decided against trying to impeach Lula, for the 'good of the country'....big mistake.
    Just for your info, you “cretin”', while your statement that “the mechanism is the same one that was used by ALL the former administrations”, is correct, it's clear that you ignore the fact that the amount of accumulated debt incurred by governments prior to the PT's, did not reach R$ 1 billion, and did not produce unmanageable deficits . This practise increased dramatically under PT governments, reaching R$ 57 billion in 2014 (the 'election' year) and produced a deficit of R$ 120 billion. And I suppose you think it's fair that the population pay for her mismanagement, through the increase in taxes ? not to mention her turning a blind eye to massive corruption which favoured mainly her Party (PT) ?
    As if that wasn't enough, she literally broke Petrobras - now worth 10% of what it did in 2007 , and with an unpayable debt, 4 times larger than the company's market value - and got the country into it's largest recession by far, in over 50 years....but as a liberal, you obviously think that is not enough. Well, too bad for you, she is out.
    Whether you like it or not, in Brazil, impeachment is the Constitutional process to get rid of an incompetent bitch, like her.
    And if anyone is creating an environment of violence, it is Lula's 'red' army, blocking highways and invading public buildings...
    If 54 million voted her in, now 150 million wanted her out. That is the will of the majority.

    This “54 milliion votes” that the Reds are promoting is just a lot of misleading garbage. Dilma just barely squeaked past Neves in the last election and it had to go to a second round because she didn't have enough support/votes to win in the first round.

    In the first round of voting Dilma only got about 41.6% of the vote
    Neves had 33.6%. Silva had 21.3%

    In the second round she only got re-elected by a tiny margin with 51.6% (54,501,119 votes vs Neves' 51,041,155 votes, with over 7 million votes being null or blank ) So all this rubbish about Dilma being so immensely popular... is just rubbish.

    So Cris is referring to Charles Chandler, apparently an individual who engaged in crimes against humanity. A lecture in Campinas, where he described methods of torture of the Viet Cong . “If the subject does not speak, thrust his bayonet into his belly sticking la devagarrinho to kill”. Was summarily executed by those that he would have had tortured or killed. Seems like a clear case of self-defence to me, he who lives by the sword dies by the sword.

    @18 I haven't found anything outside of the Marxist literature that linked Chandler to any participation in torture in Vietnam or anywhere else, other than alleged lecturing on the subject outside of the country and even that claim appears to be invention. The same Marxist literature of the era tried to link Chandler with responsibility for the killing of Ernesto Guevara, which was also imagination, and accused him (and most other Americans in Brazil at the time) of being a CIA asset. Chandler was in Brazil as a student, on a grant to study Portuguese and Brazilian history at the time of his murder and he was in civilian status, with no known function for instruction in the country on torture or any other matter.

    refer to T.Hill's statement in his # 16 :

    “Perhaps you could enlighten us as to whom and where this event took place the murder “of the American Officer”. As the only fatality of a foreign national that I know of was a German.”,

    It is evident that, besides being poorly informed, he does not know his way around the internet too well . For those who do, it is easy to find a lot of information on the fat cow's life prior to becoming “PresidentA”.
    The German national he mentions was Major Edward Maximilian Von Westerhagen, of the German army, killed by Dilma's group in July 1968.

    On 12th Oct., 1968, Charles Chandler, Captain of the US Army, was assassinated in cold blood by three communist urban guerrilla fighters, as he was leaving his home in São Paulo. Although Dilma belonged to the group which carried out the assassination (V.P.R.), she wasn't involved directly....but she did participate directly in the murder of Mario Kozel Filho, a 19 year old soldier, on June 26, 1968, while he was standing guard outside the Quitaúna Army barracks, where she and several other terrorists, in two cars, had gone to try to blow it up. The surprise attack failed ; the 1st car lost control and crashed, attracting Kozel's attention ; as he approached the vehicle, the occupants of the 2nd car, that Dilma was in, threw a highly destructive bomb at the first one, killing all its occupants as well as Mario Kozel.
    She also participated in the robbery of an ex-Governor 's mansion, where they stole US$ 2.6 million.....
    She was caught in Jan 1970, condemned to 6 years in prison, and there is absolutely no proof she was ever tortured - as she she likes to claim and brags about. She was released 2 years later, in perfect health.
    The list of crimes is too long to post here....but I'm sure Terry will try to search for it, and when he can't find anything, he'll state the proverbial “you have not produced any proof”.

    There are dozens of references to Charles Chandler that claim he was both US Army and a CIA operative, all part and parcel of the following. “In the fall of 1961, just as Joao Goulart was assuming the presidency, the United States began to make contact with his right-wing opposition. At the same time, the CIA began a multifaceted penetration of Brazilian society designed to influence that country's internal politics. Lincoln Gordon, U.S. ambassador to Brazil, was appointed the same day that Goulart's predecessor, Janio Quadros resigned…In the Fall of 1961, just as Joao Goulart was taking over the presidency, the United States began an expanded influx of CIA agents and AID officials into Brazil. AID Public Safety advisers like Dan Mitrione were responsible for ”improving” the Brazilian police forces. Engle sent CIA officer Lauren J. (Jack) Goin to Brazil under the cover of “adviser in scientific investigations.” Before coming to Brazil, Goin had set up the first police advisory team in Indonesia which was instrumental in the CIA-backed coup which culminated in the documented killing of over three-hundred thousand Indonesians.” Brazil and CIA by Peter Gribbin http://www.namebase.org/brazil.html

    Terry has got it all wrong, because as I've said before, he can’t understand one fucking word of Portuguese. Chandler , a West Point graduate and Vietnam war veteran, came to Brazil as a student in a post-graduate course in Politics and Sociology, not to be a lecturer. The fact that he gave an interview to a local paper, and one lecture in Campinas, regarding torture techniques allegedly used by the US military against the Viet Cong , was not the reason the Brazilian communists killed him – it was because they thought he was a CIA agent that came here to teach torture techniques to the police and to the military, and for that they ‘condemned’ him to death. Anyway, their claim that 'he' had committed “crimes against humanity” is a load of bullshit, because since when were the Viet Cong “humanity”? There is no proof of his direct involvement, and his presence here had absolutely nothing to do with Brazil’s terrorists.

    But it is strange that Mr. T.Hill, who is obviously a socialist, a populist and a politically correct, stinking liberal, should think that Chandler got what he deserved….without a “fair trial”, and even if the accusations he makes – without one iota of proof - were true ? it is easy to conclude that it's Mr. Hill's belief that every soldier who goes to war - and does his duty, i.e., by killing the enemy - should die ?? What a stupid asshole.

    You obviously know squat about Viet Nam. Which is why Americans apposed US policies when they realized that their government was propping up the South Vietnamese government, and refusing to allow UN sanctioned elections to unify the two Vietnams. It was further exaggerated when the US manufactured the “The Gulf of Tonkin incident” as a pretext to attack North Vietnam and expand hostilities. Including the notorious “Operation Phoenix” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phoenix_Program. Charles Chandler received numerous medals from the South Vietnamese. Moreover, he was stationed in Bolivia so this was not a regular US Army captain. So he was engaged in areas that included some of the worst excesses of US foreign policy, that did not abide by the rule of law. As consequence of his continued meddling in other countries affairs the chickens came home to roost. So you're the gift that keeps on giving.

    And just how do you know that Chandler was not a “ regular US Army captain” - whatever that is? And for that matter, perhaps you could cite a reliable source that describes what Chandler did in Bolivia, if indeed Chandler ever had an assignment in Bolivia.

    Surelly pt has serious contradictions like any other politic party, however, i have never heard that Lula or Dilma tried to impeach a president, who used the same mechanism that they implemented, to finance the brasilian budget, that's why, you argument is really ridiculous, it's obvious that you aren't looking for justice, you just want revenge.
    On the other hand, i can be wrong or not in many of the things i say, but unless i'm not a reactionary, like many of those people who asked for Dilma's renounce on the streets, and accused her of corruption, but at the same time, they couldn't show not even one proof of it.
    Dilma committed many mistakes, although millions of brasilians who were poor, could start joining what we call, a low middle class, thanks to the policies of pt, she capitulated before her convictions, because she finally implemented the hard cuts that she criticised from the neoliberals, and took the country to a worse recession.
    Beside, don't be so arrogant , just talk for your self, not for all the rest of your compatriots, you aren't the voice of the brasilians, while it is true that many people in your country want Dilma out, it's also true that a lot of other people want the contrary.
    On the other hand, you know much better than me that many of those politicians who are going to impeach her, are even more corrupt than what you can find in pt.

    @26 Actually there is a good bit of “evidence” or whatever you might like to call it, that Dilma's chums killed the wrong bloke, and for the wrong reasons (even though we observe your lust for murder on mere suspicion).

    You might recall that just about any American in Brazil was a potential target of the Reds during those days, and Chandler was apparently murdered for the fact of having been in the US forces in the Vietnam war, and suspicions of the Stalinist pogrom variety.

    As was mentioned earlier, Capt Chandler was in Brazil as a university student. He was scheduled to teach Brazilian history and language at the US Miitary Academy (aka West Point). He was cut down by Marxist murderers before he had that chance.

    Good on ChrisR @15 for bringing this up. A splendid reminder of the murderous background of the Dilma and her Red friends, and yet another reason why Brazil has good reason to consign Dilma and her accomplices to the dustbin of history. Fora, querida. Não deixe a porta bater na sua bunda.

What I am aware of is the proactive participation of the US in interfering in the internal affairs of all latin American countries, of which there are a number of sites providing abundant evidence.
    “Chandler served in the Vietnam War, where he was decorated as a military advisor and participated in more than 40 battles of the war; He commanded the strategic village of Bo Quan Tri in South Vietnam,considered a field of torture Vietcong prisoners.” A lecture in Campinas, where he described methods of torture of the Viet Cong. “If the subject does not speak, thrust his bayonet into his belly sticking la devagarrinho to kill”. He is thus condemned out of his own mouth, which shows a confession to a political murder.

    ”The original American report blamed North Vietnam for both incidents, but eventually became very controversial with widespread claims that either one or both incidents were false, and possibly purposefully so… Although the United States attended the Geneva Conference (1954), which was intended to end hostilities between France and the Vietnamese at the end of the First Indochina War, it refused to sign the Geneva Accords (1954). The accords mandated, among other measures, a temporary ceasefire line, intended to separate Vietnamese and French forces, and elections to determine the future political fate of the Vietnamese within two years. It also forbade the political interference of other countries in the area, the creation of new governments without the stipulated elections, and foreign military presence.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gulf_of_Tonkin_incident So it isn't a case of defending NVN, it's question of the US lying not only to their own citizenry but to the international community.

    If you had an ounce of intelligence you would realize that I have done more than just cut and paste from wiki. I have performed the logical fallacy of “moving the goalposts”.

    I started out @16 by by demonstrating my ignorance on the subject with this:

    “Perhaps you could enlighten us as to whom and where this event took place the murder “of the American Officer”. As the only fatality of a foreign national that I know of was a German. ”

    Once everyone on the forum had demonstrated how little I knew, I proceeded to move the goal posts leaving the witless Marti Llazol clutching the pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Chandler that he had originally proffered.

    I have profited from my own fraud (the logical fallacy of “moving the goalposts”) but no one here was smart enough to notice which allows me to make the logical conclusion that I am smarter than everyone here.

    Your assertion that I have made an ass of myself is unsupported and lacks any proof.

One who lurks in the shadows whom has been so thoroughly bested on previous occasions that he cannot stand further humiliation.

    Must be something wrong with my browsers - all of them - because at that link I found no mention of Chandler, Vietcong, or Bo Quan Tri. (On the latter I am dubious because “bo” means beef in Vietnamese and no such place seems to match the allegations). Perhaps you would be so kind as to copy and paste the associated entries about Chandler from that namebase page.

    And the only other allegations surrounding Chandler (being a CIA agent, being responsible for torture, responsible for hunting down Guevara, etc) seem to be from the inventions found in unreliable pro-VPR sources. The more we look into the sources for this, the more the VPR seems to have been simply imagining and inventing things.

    “when caught lying - and inventing a lot of shit” merely your unsupported opinion devoid of any proof, so that reveals you as an unmitigated liar.

    “No way of thinking or doing, however ancient, can be trusted without proof. Henry David Thoreau
    Deep thinking, Philosophy; Burden of proof
    Burden of proof (or onus probandi in Latin) is the obligation on somebody presenting a new idea (a claim) to provide evidence to support its truth (a warrant). Once evidence has been presented, it is up to any opposing “side” to prove the evidence presented is not adequate. Burdens of proof are key to having logically valid statements: if claims were accepted without warrants, then every claim could simultaneously be claimed to be true.
    Abuse
    Burden of proof is often abused in rhetoric and arguments.
    Shifting the burden
    Fallacious shifting of the burden of proof occurs if someone makes a claim that needs justification, then demands that the opponent justify the opposite of the claim. The opponent has no such burden until evidence is presented for the claim.

    @55 No, you claimed that site as your proof and position and your own estoppel bullshit prevents you from making any sort of subsequent correction or change.

    Moreover, apparently Terrance cannot understand the simple logic of “ ..... evidence suggesting the lack of evidence to support his support for mayhem and assassination...”

    Let us put it even more simply for you, since you are clearly challenged by simple English: the research into the matter indicates that there is no reliable support for your claims concerning Chandler, and you have been seduced by the inventions of the VPR guerrillas.

    Estoppel applies to what was originally claimed, and since there is no change from my first position, consequently there I can be no application of estoppel.
    “His support for mayhem and assassination...” On the contrary, I was simply showing that the evidence you provided doesn't support the hypothesis of Chandler's innocence, in fact it condemns him. ”Research into the matter indicates that there is no reliable support for your claims concerning Chandler” My claims rely exclusively on the information provided by you. You are not now permitted to deny it.

    In other words jumping to conclusions.
    Wrong ones.

    Terry try and think a little. Voice is one of the posters who has suffered most from copy-cat logins (The Voice, V0ice etc) are you so slow you actually think those posters are Voice? In fact he ended up as “Voice” in the mistaken belief that it would thwart the copy-cats. I recently copied the “V0ice” because his vile posts would have had him kicked off any moderated site. You might have noticed that he took the huff and two personas simultaneously fell on their swords.

    So you are wrong on two counts:

    1) I am not Voice;
    2) Voice is not V0ice

    And I will add a 3rd count too: You are wrong to categorise Think as a troll. I have never seen him trolling anyone. One might not agree with what he posts but he is not a troll by definition.

    I am afraid that is a reflection on your poor deductive logic.

    But to think that Voice and V0ice are the same shows very poor logic.
    To think that Skip, Voice and V0ice are the same (as you clearly do @57) is just ridiculous verging on the paranoid.

    I am not asking you to accept my say-so, but you could do yourself a favour by thinking about it and looking back at the exchanges between, for example, Voice and V0ice or Skip and Voice.

    Can you really not see that V0ice is an odious poster who attacks Voice at every opportunity. Can you really not see that Skip has always been Skip (well back until he was Anglotino)?
