    There are considerable wonderful places in NYC to host the gala. It will be great fun to see how well this eventually develops into something far more spectacular.

    Has anyone noticed how weak the numerous candidates the Democrat party have running against Donald Trump? It's absolutely hilarious! (Mind you, there are a couple of fairly acceptable women in the race, but it's doubtful they'll win the nomination.)

    “The Brazilian-American Chamber of Commerce, the nonprofit organisation” Tell it to the marines, your cover is blown. You are judged by the 'company' you keep. Your last two inductees were off to head-quarters in Langley, the other day.

    Terrence, as you'll note they already rescheduled the venue and because of the controversy the dinner has been enlarged. This was an unexpected blessing...
    Meanwhile, your pal Lula remains rotting in a miserable prison cell...
    ...ain't life great?

    Chicureo the flamer
    When the UNHR's ruling is delivered on his 'wrongful conviction' he will be a a cause célèbre. While Brazil we be revealed as just another 'banana republic.
    While you perfectly meet the criteria of ”Lower childhood intelligence clearly predicts right-wing ideology and attitude, which in turn predicts prejudice in adulthood.”
    Media Censors Bolsonaro CIA Visit With Justice Minister
    On March 18, on his first official visit to the United States far-right Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro visited the Headquarters of the Central Intelligence Agency. It was outside the President’s official agenda. None of his predecessors had visited the agency, and indeed very few foreign heads of state ever have. The scandal briefly engulfed coverage of his trip on its first day in the Brazilian media, overshadowing planned official events.
    The significance of his CIA visit, to Brazil’s sovereignty and democracy, should be obvious to any observer, but was amplified by the identity of his companion, the US-trained Inquisitor-Judge, now appointed Bolsonaro’s own Justice Minister Sérgio Moro, whose controversial jailing of Lula da Silva, who led all polling scenarios, effectively handed the presidential election to the neofascist candidate. The visit came a week after the U.S. Department of Justice’s R$2.5bn kickback to the Lava Jato taskforce with which they had collaborated informally, and in breach of Brazil’s constitution, on the prosecution of former president Lula, who has been the most high profile scalp in a continent-wide lawfare strategy.

    REF: CIA Visit

    CIA Visits + Mossad “Visits” & their Cover-Stories [Brazil's Visit to them AND their visit to Brazil] are Widely Publicised.

    But does anyone know how many “discussions” were held on the phones, in person, etc. with the Local-Staff + with the Under-the-Pretext of Missions, Delegates & nobody knows Who-Else & for what purpose? Whatever they are up to, wouldn't raise eyebrows of the ignorant masses!

    REF: Justice Minister: Lucky for 'many'; now the cash in the 'Box 2' is perfectly “LEGAL”!

    “Because of the controversy the dinner has been enlarged. This was an unexpected” A lie as the following shows.
    ”A man is known by the company he keeps” Aesop
    New York’s American Museum of Natural History expelled a scheduled gala hosted by the Brazilian-American Chamber of Commerce after the entity chose to honor President Jair Bolsonaro at the event. Frances Martel 16 Apr 2019 Breitbart
    The gala, which the museum hosted last year when it honored Bolsonaro’s now Minister of Justice Sergio Moro, will take place at the same date and time, but not at its original location: under the famous blue whale in the museum’s Hall of Ocean Life. In a statement on Twitter, the museum said the move to expel the event from the premises was taken “with mutual respect for the work & goals of our individual organizations.” The event is scheduled for May 14th but does not yet have a new venue at press time.
