Corruption

Latin American Politicians Rotten to the Core

One single company, the Brazilian construction giant, Odebrecht, managed to pay off politicians and their aides to obtain exclusivity in bidding processes in Brazil, Colombia and Peru. Corruption knows no boundaries, skin color, ideology, ethnicity or political preference. Today, this reality is clearer in Latin America than anywhere else. A few days ago, Peruvian prosecutors requested the detention of former president Alejandro Toledo, who according to investigators received $20 million ...Read full article...

Odebrecht and Braskem pay $ 3.5 Billion in Lava Jato Corruption Case

Investigators found a system of “professional” corruption in the Brazilian construction company. The company had a bribe management department. Construction company Odebrecht and its petrochemical arm Braskem testified before a US court last Wednesday that they are guilty of paying bribes in exchange for contract benefits. This corruption was discovered in Operation Lava Jato, the operative group of the Brazilian Prosecutor’s Office that has been investigating corruption for more ...Read full article...

Greek-style Austerity Coming to Brazil

Whatever remained of Greece’s economy after the crisis evaporated as the country adopted IMF and Troika austerity polices which today, the very same IMF admits were a mistake. The only goal that austerity measures were able to accomplish in Greece was the complete transfer of the country’s resources and treasures to the Elite that ran away with them for pennies on the dollar. The same scenario is presented now ...Read full article...

The Deplorables have taken Command of Government

Many Democrats would give everything to be part of the basket of deplorables. A simple explanation is that more people voted for him than for Hillary Clinton, but the question is not in the numbers, but in who voted for the Republican candidate. On Tuesday, Trump not only won the presidential race, he did it flipping traditionally Democratic electoral districts and states. How did he do that? By having ...Read full article...

Comey Whitewashes Hillary Criminality Again

Anyone guilty of Hillary’s crimes would face long prison terms. FBI Director James Comey whitewashed them. He dismissed indictable evidence without recommending charges be brought against her – then repeated his outrage a second time days after his October surprise, reopening his investigation into Hillary’s email scandal after 650,000 new ones were discovered. Clearly, scant review, if any, was conducted over the eight-day period from Comey’s October surprise to ...Read full article...

The Link Washington-Wall Street is more Alive than Ever Before

While voters reject further liberalisation via transnational treaties, the Democratic administration, under pressure from large corporations, aims to force the Transpacific Agreement on the fast track. To understand why many voters in the United States -and not only those who support  Trump- believe there is a corrupt nexus of interests between Washington and Wall Street, you should follow the history of the Transpacific Agreement (TPP), the liberalisation treaty led ...Read full article...

Washington Post Anti-Trump Scare Tactics

As the moment of truth approaches, America’s two leading broadsheets, the NYT and WaPo, continue relentlessly bashing Trump, shamelessly supporting a woman belonging in prison, not high office. A same day article discussed The Times’ latest anti-Trump broadside. WaPo featured two editorials hammering him, following so many others earlier, disgracefully accusing him of everything imaginable, while practically elevating Hillary to sainthood by comparison. “Will Republicans respect democracy,” WaPo editors ...Read full article...

It is Time for Hillary Clinton to Duck and Go

More details have emerged about the never ending levels of corruption among the DNC, the Obama White House and the Hillary Clinton campaign, as a result of James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas’ investigation. Corrupt practices go from promoting seemingly harmless campaigns to have people dressed as ducks at Trump rallies to collusion between the Clinton campaign, the DNC and the non-profit organization Americans United for Change. In the third video put out by ...Read full article...

Hillary Must Testify Under Oath in Writing on Her Festering Email Scandal

Likely never before in the republic’s history has a candidate for the nation’s highest office been so irreparably legally, ethically and morally tainted multiple times over – clearly making Hillary unfit to serve. If ordinary people committed her offenses, they’d be serving long prison terms – perhaps life sentences with no possibility of parole. Yet Hillary will likely succeed Obama – for the first time in US history, a ...Read full article...

Dilma Rousseff’s Empty Promises before Judgement Day

The current impeachment process on the Brazilian president, Dilma Rousseff is bogus. The reason for this is that the crimes that she is being accused of committing are peanuts in comparison with other, more serious issues that her government did not address over her two terms. Now, when she is just days away from being impeached by the Brazilian Senate, she has come out to promise early elections, should ...Read full article...

Three Damning New Reports on Hillary Clinton

So much scandalous stuff about Hillary Clinton is known, it’s just a matter of time before the next shoe drops. Instead of exposing her as unfit to serve, media scoundrels express one-sided support, focusing instead on bashing Trump, the most irresponsible denunciation of a presidential aspirant in US history. Judicial Watch (JW) is a conservative watchdog organization, “promot(ing) transparency, accountability and integrity in government, politics and the law.” On ...Read full article...

Dilma Rousseff will face Impeachment in Congress

With many of the world’s eyes set on the Olympic Games in Rio, Dilma Rousseff began the morning of Wednesday on a melancholic countdown to leave her position for which she was reelected in 2014. This morning, the Brazilian Senate accepted the complaint against her for serious tax offenses and officially charged Rousseff for the commission of those offenses. The Senate approved the report that recommends replacing the president ...Read full article...

Dilma Rousseff in her own Words

In addition to interviewing former Brazilian President, Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, about the Mensalão, Operation Lava-Jato and the impeachment of his protegé, The Intercept’s journalist, Glenn Greenwald, also sat down with the last elected Brazilian President of Brazil, Dilma Rousseff, days after being suspended by the House and the Senate. As it happened with Lula, Greenwald and Dilma spoke at great length about the reasons for her impeachment and how she intends ...Read full article...

Lula knows no Limits to his Corruption

The former Brazilian president is now meeting deputies and negotiating votes against impeaching Dilma Rousseff. “The Government of Brazil has been transferred from Planalto to the Palace Golden Tulip hotel.” This affirmation was made by Federal Deputy Rodrigo Maia, a Democrat from the opposition party, may seem exaggerated, but it is real. It is in this Brasilia hotel where the former president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva of the Workers ...Read full article...
