On October 26th the presidential election took place in Brazil.By a narrow margin of votes (3%) Dilma Rousseff, the current president and socialist candidate from the Workers Party, was reelected. With this victory, the Workers Party will complete 16 years of being in charge of the country. The election was turbulent, marred by allegations of corruption and embezzlement of public funds by the Rousseff campaign. One witness under a plea deal has linked Rousseff and former president Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, (Lula) to a billionaire fraud in Petrobras, Brazil’s biggest oil company. The company is now under criminal investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice.
The socialists displayed sordid attitudes during the election. A campaign of psychological terror was unleashed against poor people through phone calls and texting with threats that their food allowance would end if they didn’t vote for Rousseff. The same kind of campaign incited the prejudice and confrontation between southern Brazilians—whose majority voted against Rousseff in the first round of the election - and northern. Also, a few days before the election, members of the Socialist Youth Union - a pro-Rousseff communist group - vandalized the building of the media group that had denounced the government corruption during the election. All this happened without any kind of punishment by police or election officials.
Although the international media reported the election as democratic, this is not the perception of a significant portion of the Brazilian population. There is evidences of fraud in the election voting machines. Voters complained, for example, that the machines were electronically switching votes from the defeated candidate to Rousseff - in much the same way that happened in the midterm election in Maryland and Illinois, US. The company responsible for the reliability of the voting machines is Smartmatic, a Venezuelan company involved in allegations of voting frauds in Venezuela and the Philippines, that was under investigation by US authorities.
The Superior Electoral Court, the highest court of the election in Brazil, is chaired by a Workers Party former lawyer. The defeated candidate, Aecio Neves, who belongs to the Social Democratic Party, accepted the result swiftly and without question. People are outraged and there is no leadership to give them voice. This growing wave of outrage is taking to the streets, with protests in major cities across the country calling for an audit in the election and in the voting machines, an investigation of complaints and, if proven, the impeachment of President Rousseff. All this is being distorted by the Brazilian mainstream media, which describes the protesters - peaceful young and grandparents with their families, children and pets - as right-wing extremists asking for a military dictatorship.
Rousseff and the Workers Party implanted a Bolivarian communism in Brazil. And that should concern the Americans as well, because the growth of Bolivarian regimes in Latin American is the result of a major plan put into action by an international enemy called Sao Paulo Forum. The Sao Paulo Forum is the most powerful political organization in Latin America. It was created in the 90s by Fidel Castro and Lula to “recover in Latin America what was lost in Eastern Europe”, in Lula’s words.
As in any communist organization, the ties between the Sao Paulo Forum and the mafias are the spine of this Leviathan. The drug smuggling in the continent is done by radical guerrilla members, such as the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC), and is coordinated in accordance to the interests of the revolutionary command. Or, as Fidel Castro stated to Romanian dictator Nicolae Ceausescu, “Drugs will erode capitalism from the inside”. The criminal activities reach the Brazilian heartland by means of local criminal organizations, such as the First Capital Command (PCC) in the state of Sao Paulo and the Red Command (CV) in Rio de Janeiro - a fact that is even recognized by the Council on Foreign Relations.
The roots of such dark activities is evidenced by the direct involvement of the Workers Party elected members and the PCC. Now, evidence is being revealed about the links between the PCC and radical islamic groups, such as the Hezbollah (http://glo.bo/1w3PDYV, in Portuguese only), which is, by no means, a surprise, given the pledge for ‘dialogue’ with ISIS terrorists delivered by Rousseff at the U.N..
Of course, all this operation could never be conducted in broad daylight. The growth and spread of the Sao Paulo Forum was completely hidden from the public in the last 25 years by means of a concealed censorship of the media, in which journalists keep an eye on colleagues. Being a conservative is a career death sentence for any Brazilian journalist or academic. This complete news blackout was intended to prevent the birth of any opposition, as a part of a wide hegemonic takeover scheme.
During the last election, the increasing dissatisfaction raised the political subject to an unseen level since the democratic regime began in the late ‘80s. Blogs and social media pages are gaining traction and people are being informed at a pace that no one could have predicted, not even them, at the Sao Paulo Forum. In an official manifesto one week after the election, the surprise of the Workers Party with such opposition was translated into terror. The document calls for a complete domination of society, regulation of media, planning of urban areas (namely, property confiscation) and a political reform by plebiscite, among other totalitarian demands. There was even a ‘call to arms’ in the social networks to party activists. The instruction is that any opposition should be treated as radicalism and must be fought.
No one is sure about how fast the Workers Party will drive the changes in Brazil towards a more explicit totalitarian regime. The only certainty is that the path has been traced. What separates Brazil’s fate from Venezuela’s terrifying reality is the fact that the Sao Paulo Forum, through the Workers Party, have not yet completely mastered completely the media, nor the military and police forces of the country. So, for us who are standing for freedom and democracy in Brazil, it is a race against time.
