Bolsonaro learning the hard way: family and politics don't mix

Full article 96 comments

Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, one of his politician sons and his ultraconservative party were embroiled in a crisis on Sunday over a campaign finance scandal threatening the leader's anti-corruption image. The 63-year-old far-right president, who is just six weeks into his mandate, spoke with top officials in his government on Friday and Saturday to try to draw a line under the affair, after key allies turned on him.

    ”I never imagined he would be such a weak president,”

    Somehow I don't think comments like that are gonna help Bebianno save his job! Interesting plot twist for the 'Bolsonaro family soap opera', though.

    Eduardo should beware of Bannon, if the latter is truly a nationalist then by definition he's working for US interests, not Brazil's.

    Amazing, isn't it, how these evangelicals (and Catholics) oppose gay marriage but are happy to support a leader who's been divorced and remarried twice. Which do you think is more damaging to the institution of marriage, society, and kids: letting two people of the same sex marry, or easy and common divorce?

    DT (Contn of “Lula in new corruption conviction...”)

    “ “once a communist, always a communist”…don't believe that's true at all”.

    I do, a tiger doesn’t change its stripes….people may adapt to what they don’t necessarily agree with, due to circumstances, but I don’t believe they'll forget their innermost convictions.
    As they grow older they might become more pragmatic, but that does not mean they’ll change their convictions......except when perhaps, in a life/death type of situation you suddenly “see the light”.
    Of course there may be exceptions (at least apparently), but how d’you know the change wasn't only for “convenience's” sake ?…which plays a big role in Brazilian politics.
    As I’ve said b4, most politicians converge closer to centre after elected, because they know the extremes don’t work.

    Brizola, from humble parents (rural workers), worked his way up, studied engineering, became a politician (invited by the RS governor to be Secretary of “Public Works”, overseeing the construction of sanitation 'n highways…a great job if you like bribes), met Goulart, married his sister and into money, but when he fled Brazil, how much of his wife’s inherited assets - mainly land in RS - could he take with him ? There's no record of his wife owning land in Uruguay, so he had to have stolen enough to establish himself there.

    Shortly after the coup in '64, a reporter from “Veja” magazine, having ‘heard’ rumors of a large farm belonging to Brizola in Uruguay, which virtually no one knew of, decided to investigate. He went to Uruguay, found the property, but was threatened by the caretaker 'n told to get out. He submitted his story, his bosses loved it but couldn’t publish it - Brizola had called the magazine owner, threatening to sue if one word was printed. Why ? Everything points to big scale corruption while a politician in RS, which financed his cattle farming in Uruguay.
    Just another common story in Brazilian politics.

    @JB
    There's a common belief that people who are radical when young get more conservative as they age. Probably partly because young people have little to lose, but once they get jobs and houses and families they no longer want to rock the boat. I remember when I was at university, the student Conservative party was nearly as small as the Socialist Workers. Yet their votes certainly don't split that way once they leave.

    I reckon most people are fairly set in their views by the time they enter politics, but the 'revolutionaries' from the 60s were young and crazy - just the sort who might end up disillusioned.

    “how much of his wife’s inherited assets - mainly land in RS - could he take with him ?”

    I daresay there was someone in the family who could sell the land in Brazil and send them the money. Did Brizola's wife go into exile with him?

    I did some googling but can't find anything one way or the other. No way to prove whether he was corrupt or just married into money and made more by farming, investing it etc.

    I wonder why the magazine backed down due to a threat from an out-of-favour, exiled politician? Would he really have got far in Brazilian courts?

    “There's a common belief that people who are radical when young get more conservative as they age”......Sounds right.
    “the 'revolutionaries' from the 60s were young 'n crazy ...”.....far from only 'young 'n crazy'....they were dangerous radicals trying to topple a government....and most of them still believe they were right.

    “I daresay there was someone in the family who could sell the land in Brazil....” nothing's impossible, but after (Jango 'n ) Brizola fled, the military opened up an investigation into how the assets were obtained - not sure how it ended. Presume Brizola's wife eventually joined him.

    Given the public jobs he held, it's very unlikely he resisted the temptation to fill his pockets......you always try to find the 'good' in people, despite the chances of it being zero. Taking a realistic look at his biography, it's highly unlikely he was an 'honest John'.

    “Would he really have got far in Brazilian courts?” probably not, wouldn't have a case ; but I doubt he ever threatened to prosecute - how would he if the story was true ? - far more likely to kill the owner - which he'd have no trouble in carrying out, and far more effective.

    Just 60 secs on the useful idiot - Looks like he has had another relapse, once again insisting Mourão served in Haiti....(better increase his medication.)

    His source : “Jacobin : a socialist quarterly magazine based in N.York offering biased socialist 'n anti-capitalist perspectives on politics, economics and culture from the American left”...but he laps it up...

    Mourão spent 1 week in Haiti, on an official visit to Gen. Heleno. Besides Jacobin being left-wing, looks like they, same as the idiot, don't understand Portuguese either.

    Terry's most recent lies : 1) Mourão served in Haiti; 2) Gen Heleno referred to Mourão as his commanding officer; 3) Bolsonaro's wife was 'weak'....he still insists he didn't lie, and when he grudgingly admits he did, he blames the journalists....amazing.

    “most of them still believe they were right”

    Right to try to topple the dictatorship, or right to use violence, rob banks etc?

    If the military investigated Jango and Brizola, I'm surprised there was no result. Wouldn't they want to discredit them in the eyes of their supporters if they could prove corruption? But maybe the new government was working with the 'bribers' and needed to keep them on side.

    “you always try to find the 'good' in people”

    Except Bolsonaro. You'd like me to try harder to find the good in him, right?

    “I doubt he ever threatened to prosecute”

    You said Brizola called up threatening to sue. Killing the owner is whole different kettle of piranhas; what makes you think he could or would?

    RE the Idiot, he believes anything he reads that confirms his beliefs, no matter who biased or unreliable the source, and ignores all the evidence that proves him wrong. He's just a crackpot, similar to creationists and flat-earthers. I wish he would adopt different views, since his 'support' can only help the opposite side in any dispute.

    Missing the point as usual. Mourão was *A* military chief, but that doesn't mean he was *Heleno's* chief. If I wrote on Facebook about my long time friend and respected CEO Bob, that doesn't mean I work for Bob. Pull your head out of a dictionary and start thinking for once.

    JB “Mourão spent 1 week in Haiti, on an official visit to Gen. Heleno.” That is simply a command review by his immediate superior. Senior officers don't go off the reservation and review military areas that are not under their jurisdiction, and he certainly wasn't on a social visit. That is why professional journalists wrote “Haiti, Mourão, together with General Augusto Heleno, were Brazil’s top military commanders in its disastrous intervention in Haiti.” You forget I'm familiar with military protocol, neither of you clowns are.

    Re Wyllys, I found the report on his complaint to the OAS that Brazil was not doing enough to protect him and his family. It says they were given copies of the threatening messages as well as translations such as the following:

    - “Lo voy a matar a usted y a toda su familia si usted no renuncia al cargo”.
    - Usted puede estar protegido, pero su familia no. ¿Ya pensó en ver a sus familiares violados y sin cabeza?
    [..] Ya tengo todos los datos y horarios de toda su familia. Ellos no tienen protección como usted. ¿Ya se
    detuvo para pensar en eso? Piense mejor, bixona, usted es gay, nordestino y negro, pero no es burro. No
    tengo nada que perder. Si usted me jode, mato a su familia entera y después me meto una bala en mi
    cabeza. ¡Mantente atento!
    - Voy a Río y sé dónde vives y frecuenta. Te voy a esperar.
    - Jean Wyllys, vamos a acabar con usted y su familia. Vamos a dedicarnos íntegramente a ello”.

    http://www.oas.org/es/cidh/decisiones/pdf/2018/85-18MC1262-18-BR.pdf

    TBH, if he claimed he had never received threats I'd find that harder to believe. The only question is whether they were the reason (or the sole reason) for his decision to resign his seat and leave Brazil.

    “Right to topple dictatorship, right to use violence, rob banks ?” All of them. Not once did any of them go public to express regret over past actions. Much to the contrary.

    “I'm surprised there was no result. Wouldn't they want to discredit them....? maybe the new govt was working with the 'bribers' 'n needed to keep them on side”.
    The military had no need to 'try to discredit' them...they were gone for good. As to not being able to prove anything - don't know, nothing was made public - back then that sort of investigation was virtually non-existent, no expertise or technology, so it would've been hard ....and v. unlikely the military would have any interest in “maintaining” ties with corrupt politicians/ businessmen in RS.

    “Except Bolsonaro. You'd like me to try harder to find the good in him, right?” Wrong. You try hard as hell to find excuses for the left, downplay their actions....and criticize the right for even a rumor of a suspicion....I respectfully suggest you interpret the facts without getting carried away.

    “You said Brizola called up threatening to sue”....yes I did....which was the “Veja's” version When you asked if it would go anywhere in court, I said I doubted it - 'n that I also doubted such version, as knowing Brizola, a death threat would be more likely...'n effective.
    “Could” : All powerful political families in the 60s had connections in the darkest places -anything could be arranged, for a price ; “Would” : Brizola had every reason under the sun to want to keep a low profile...he didn't want to become the centre of attention.

    The idiot insists I lied when I wrote “in Gen. Heleno's .. post..there was no journalist 'inbetween' to get things wrong..” : EXACTLY....Heleno posted his message on FB. He, TH, then goes on to confirm it...as per his 'deductive logic'. Re Mourão/Haiti, his “...he certainly wasn't on a social visit”....he WAS.

    @JB
    And I suppose they all deny having killed anyone, much like Dilma?

    “The military had no need to 'try to discredit' them”

    When a junta took power in Uruguay too, Brizola had to flee to the US to avoid being handed over to Brazil. The fact the military joined in with Operation Condor shows they were still worried about their enemies. And as for maintaining ties with the corrupt, it's the easiest way to get things done in Brazil. Those big construction firms have been powerful for decades, through dictatorship and democracy and a dozen Presidents.

    “You try hard as hell to find excuses for the left”

    So do you for the right. You're convinced Flavio, who is under investigation for suspicious payments (or was, until he used his immunity to get it suspended) is innocent, while Wyllys, who has been accused of precisely nothing, must be guilty. All based on rumours about a favourite target of fake news.

    I doubt the threats were considered particularly newsworthy until Wyllys responded so dramatically. They're common for all public figures who do anything the least bit controversial, and it seems LGBT issues are *very* controversial in Brazil.

    Probably most threats are empty, but there are always a few deranged people out there, like Bispo, who will try to carry them out.

    Brizola is another example. You think he would coolly arrange the murder of an editor who crossed him? Based on what? Is he known to have done anything remotely similar?

    As for the Liar, he's trying to have it both ways by blaming the journalist for getting it wrong, and then insisting the journalist was right. What an idiot.

    @Chicureo
    Useful for you, since he makes liberals look bad by association. I wish he was into creationism or perpetual motion machines or something, rather than blundering around giving logic and debate a bad name. When posters here use logical fallacies I can't point it out for fear of sounding like him. :(

    “suppose they all deny having killed anyone, much like Dilma?” None ever admitted as much, so guess I'll just have to keep on wondering who murdered their opponents in the 60s.

    “Brizola had to flee to US to avoid being handed over to Brazil. Fact the military joined in with Operation Condor shows they were still worried abt their enemies.”

    Didn't say the military weren't keeping an eye on Brizola - said they had no need to discredit him.

    Regarding Flavio B, who hasn't been formally charged of anything - yet - I'm not convinced one way or the other...until he presents proof his real-estate transactions are legitimate, or the prosecutors prove they weren't (more like it), I'm not blindly defending anyone. And just one correction : immunity only covers his current mandate, not b4...'n had nothing to do with his request to the STF.
    Also, I didn't say Wyllis was guilty - though I do think he's a piece of shit - regardless of ideology, or sexual preference - that's why I think he could have easily invented the threats ...besides, he never stuck his neck out, speaking against the militias, as Marielle did. Drama is Wyllys' thing...perhaps you should watch a few videos of him in Congress. Despite LGBT issues being contoversial here, I doubt any one would want to kill him over it.

    “...You think Brizola would coolly arrange the murder of an editor who crossed him?” YES. Politically motivated murders were/are quite common in Brazil....of course, compared to the UK....don't think it couldn't, or wouldn't have happened. Considering with whom he associated, and his nickname “old 'caudilho' ”, you can be sure he was not a man who liked to be crossed.

    The useful idiot claims I lied when I said there was no journalist mixed up in Gen.Heleno's FB post....then, he confirms there wasn't...so who's the liar ? He's told so many lies he can't even keep track of them...he then claims he's proved, erhh...exactly what ? and resumes his 'sucking'. 'Suck away Terry' !!

    Absolutely correct! Plus, we mestizos eat lots of very healthy and delicious avocados that helps neutralize the numerous diseases we suffer from.

    By the way, as there is no established commercial avocado production in China, the demand for Chilean avocados in China as well as many other countries is experiencing tremendous growth.

    We are intensely removing many toxic metals from our contaminated soil and exporting them away. Sort of an enourmous enviromental cleaning project...

    “We are intensely removing many toxic metals from our contaminated soil and exporting them away.”

    Ah yes, it's so kind of China to accept all that toxic copper, lithium and molybdenum.

    China's a big country, though. They've already started producing their own wines, I'm sure there are areas suitable for growing avocados. Maybe with global warming even Britain could join in, vineyards here have expanded dramatically over the last 20 years (it's easy when you're starting from zero).

    @JB
    “immunity only covers his current mandate, not b4...'n had nothing to do with his request to the STF”

    Okay, but then why did the STF grant Falvio's request? What was it based on if not his immunity? Personally I wish he had let them investigate ASAP, then we'd have a better idea whether any wrong-doing was involved.

    Re Wyllys, no doubt crossing the militias is a lot MORE dangerous, but according to you politically motivated murders are quite common in Brazil. Given Wyllys was a favourite target of the Whatsapp fake news crew, it wouldn't even have to be triggered by anything real. Some of the threats in the report accused him of being a paedophile, and people are definitely willing to kill over that. But why d'you think he's a 'piece of shit', if it's not about ideology or any of those other reasons? Being over-dramatic in Congress might be annoying, but it's hardly a huge character flaw.

    As for Brizola, the fact he maybe could have arranged a murder, and it was common back then, isn't enough to say he would have done it. If there is any record of him threatening or actually harming someone, that would be more suggestive.

    Terry's a deluded and dishonest fool. No doubt he believes the journalist who wrote this must be General Rawat's subordinate:

    Yes! Chile has embraced the warnings about our toxic soils contaminating our soil by vigorously eliminating all that terrible copper, lithium and molybdenum. Our increased planting of avocado orchards greatly help in absorbing lots of CO2.

    I'm not that concerned about the Chinese planting vineyards and avocado orchards because their increasing internal domestic demand is astronomical.

    And although I understand that our world is experiencing climate change, I and several of many people do not accept what we're being deluded by “experts”.

    Political murders ARE quite common, but only when the victim poses a real threat to some criminal or political group. Wyllys threatened neither. Afaic, his dramatic attitudes, bordering on self-pity, his lies, made him despicable. “...but it's hardly a huge character flaw”. Perhaps not, but nevertheless made people dislike him. Me included.

    Do you question the science that lets you talk to me on the internet, that makes your mobile phone work, or the irrigation system you use on your farm? Do you use the weather forecast when planning what to do that day or week? Denialism based on prejudice is just as foolish as blind belief.

    I remember the Iraq war, it was obvious at the time that the evidence for WMDs was weak and that the allies had an ulterior motive for the invasion. With climate science it's the other way around, the denialists are driven by ideology or profit motive. I'm not talking about the GND here; the proposed responses are also ideologically driven and often unreasonable, but that does not change the science itself.

    I'm guessing your intelligence training did not tell you to ignore and discount everything you learned, but to investigate further and consider all options. So why aren't you doing so?

    @JB
    Okay, so the STF decided Flavio doesn't have immunity. Last I saw they had suspended the investigation, so hopefully it's continuing now.

    Re Wyllys, what lies? You're free to dislike him, but if you believe he's a POS for such minor reasons then think how a real homophobe would react. Personally I always thought he was taking a big risk, and although fleeing is kind of cowardly, I can't blame him for wanting to have a life and wanting his family to be safe.

    As for Brizola, you didn't know him either. Just following a public figure isn't going to give you a great insight into what he might so but never did.

    Queiroz never enjoyed immunity, while Flavio, without immunity for cases prior to his current mandate, wanted the investigation (by the MPRJ - Rio State-Attorney's office) to be temporarily suspended only until the end of the STF's recess...Fux granted his request. Since then, Marco Aurelio has indicated their cases would not be investigated /processed in the STF, but (separately) by 1st instance Justice.

    Does that mean the MPRJ is investigating again?

    Trump is the closest I can think of with eg his making fun of a disabled person and insulting the parents of a US soldier who died in the Iraq war. I also think those conspiracy theorists who've accused the Sandy Hook parents of being crisis actors are despicable, but that's something they've done, not just their manner. Same with Ann Coulter etc, I don't dislike her manner but her ideology, what she wants to do to society/people I know. TBH, sounds like it's exactly the reasons you discounted that make you dislike Wyllys.

    But I don't believe any of us have really accurate views of public figures. We know the image they want to project, or the image the press wants to show of them. I have heard that in many cases the reality is quite different.

    We're in the French Alps; it's insanely hot here, it feels like summer has come already and the snow is melting fast. Nothing like Finland where we were freezing our arses off. I've started learning Nordic skiing, which is interesting because everyone else in the group is French.

    Re yellow fever, I was thinking of a documentary I watched about the Zika virus, where the government was struggling to eliminate the mosquitos that carried it. One problem was the amount of neighbourhoods with no plumbing, as people would keep water sitting around in cisterns where mosquitos could breed. It was more about sanitation than strictly health measures, but it didn't give a great impression of competence.

    It's funny to see Dumbass switch between insisting Mourão was Heleno's superior in Haiti, and denying he ever said so. What an idiot.

    MPRJ continuing to investigate ? would think so, as is the normal sequence of events
    Re public figures, you don't know Trump any better than I do, yet it doesn't prevent you - or me - from forming an opinion about him.....also don't forget that the press plays an enormous role in public perception....if 100% true, distorted, or fake, is another story....but what I'm saying is that when you accompany the life 'n actions of a public person, whether in politics or any other field of activity, you get a good idea of what drives them. The image they try to project can easily be shattered, and don't forget, if you need to 'build' a public image, how reliable is it going to be ? Why don't they just project their “authentic” selves ?
    And also, you cannot try to apply the same rules of 'despicability' randomly to any public figure, as the circumstances under which they perform are usually very different

    Agree, the LIAR has lost it....in one post, two posts, three 'n more, he insists Mourão served in Haiti, was Gen. Heleno's 'boss'....when you prove he's wrong (as per links from the “Ministério da Defesa/ Exército Brasileiro”), he denies ever having made such a claim....you then prove he did, by posting his own sh*t for him to read....and the he replies insisting, yet again, that Mourão DID serve in Haiti etc...his sources ? Jacobin, Shitabin etc..
    And I've told him to go to Curitiba....Lula says no one sucks like Terry...

    “Why don't they just project their “authentic” selves ?”

    Because they want people to vote for them, or come see their movies or whatever. And I think we the public aren't always willing to take celebrities as they are, warts and all. Would we forgive them for showing weakness or admitting they don't care about some popular issue? Or do we want them to be better than we are, and hold them to a standard that few could live up to?

    And the press, besides sometimes having an axe to grind, likes to build people up into heroes and villains. It makes a better story and gets more subscriptions.

    So yes, I have an opinion of Trump, but I wouldn't say I really know him. And you wouldn't put much stock at all in my opinion, would you?

    Re The Liar, yup he's lost it. Now he thinks General Heleno is a professional writer! That idiot would swear black is white and up is down to avoid admitting he was wrong. No one sucks like Terry

    I'm very pleased to hear you're having a great time. Definitely be careful about sunburn... Although we have year round snow in the Andes, mid-June to early October is our typical ski season.

    Several ski resorts are only about 90 minutes away from Santiago (With clear roads) and we will often ski at our favorite, Valle Nevado 4 or 6 days total during the season.

    We have had some memorable family week long ski vacations in the Las Leñas iski resort in Argentina, located close to Mendoza because it's far more economical and have the same level of quality as here. Perhaps the most beautiful ski area is located in Bariloche, Argentina.

    BTW Are you aware of the new GPS tracking chips that some people are using embedded in their equipment?

    I'll raise a glass of wine to you this afternoon, as you are and hope you are enjoying après-ski as well.

    As they say in your part of the Alps, à votre santé!

    I've been attempting to learn Nordic skiing, it's quite tiring and the skis have no grip at all. Several people in my group just fell over while standing still. Now I'm aching all over, it's hard on the shoulders too. But it's nice seeing the quieter parts of the slopes, I went round a snow-covered lake and there was no one else in sight most of the time.

    It must be so convenient having ski resorts that close, I'm very jealous of your giant mountains. You can ski in Scotland if the weather cooperates, but that's still hundreds of miles away from where I live. When you only go once a year you forget how to do it and don't exercise the muscles enough.

    Re GPS, you can get an app for your phone that tracks your speed, location etc; it's really nice to see where you've been at the end of the day and compare top speeds. I forgot to put it on today, sadly, and anyway I went very slowly. I'm scared to go fast when I don't have the control yet.

    Regarding Trump, whether you like him or not, but what he's accomplished the first two years of his term is remarkable. Strong economic growth, low inflation, record low unemployment. (Lowest historical unemployment for minorities) It looks like he may have success in his negotiations with China an North Korea. It will be remarkable if the US manages the Venezuela crisis decently.

    I confess, I wouldn't know about poor neighborhoods, the sort Gollum lived in (as he has said “..I know from experience..”)

    In MY experience I never had difficulty in flushing turds 'n Terrys down the toilet. As for public bogs, the bins are necessary because the ignorant twats even put plastic bottles in the toilets. But I'd go one further, “poor” neighbourhoods probably don't even have sewer systems at all, the crap just leaks out on to the streets.
    But I'm confident that Terry's bad experience with bogs in Brazil is more than compensated for by his wonderful experience as chief lavatory cleaner in the RAF.

    He calls everyone an 'unmitigated' liar.....well, obviously no use insisting on the Mourão/Haiti /Gen Heleno stuff, because Gollum can't even remember what he ate for breakfast yesterday....let's see, maybe I can help him....garbage ?

    Your calling Gollum (aka Terry) ”filthy odorous “merda”, is an insult to 'merda'...he has to improve a lot before he can claim such a title.

    Re Trump, I don't see anything impressive in continuing a trend. Probably would be much the same if Hillary had won, only without the incipient trade war. Have you seen what his lawyer is saying about him? “A liar, conman and cheat”. Lol, he's really putting the boot in.

    I remember what really annoys me about Trump. Whenever he talks or tweets, it sounds like he's addressing a class of three-year-olds. Uber patronising, I don't know how his supporters can stand being treated like idiots.
