It appears that newly elected dictator....ahem....”president" of Brazil is following the playbook of the United States when it comes to the blatant genocide of indigenous populations. "President" Jair Bolsonaro has vowed to expel/exterminate the native Amazonians off their land so that his true masters (the energy corporations that put him in office) can decimate all the rainforests and extract all the oil and natural gas that is beneath. Bolsonaro, who's racism and misogyny has been well documented during his run for the Brazilian presidency, seems to be hell-bent on destroying the Amazon rainforest. Bolsonaro’s insatiable greed and incompetence has clearly prevented him from remembering that the Amazon rainforest provides the Earth with the majority of its oxygen. The Amazonian rainforest is the only thing that stands between us and a global ecological catastrophe. The native Amazonian tribes are doing their best to protect their lands from vulture capitalists, but it appears that their efforts will be in vain. The newly crowned “Butcher of Brazil” is trying to find a way to shut down the government agency FUNAI (The National Indian Foundation) which create policies that protect and benefit the indigenous tribes of the rainforests. If/when FUNAI is eliminated, it’s only a matter of time before Bolsonaro’s legalized genocide campaign will begin. Hopefully the FUNAI officials and any anti-Bolsonaro organizations within Brazil’s government can throw a monkey wrench into the gears of this plan.
Meanwhile, in the latest episode of “How the E.U. Continues To Crumble,” approximately 250,000 French citizens a.k.a “Yellow Vests” are protesting against their President Emmanuel Macron because of the sharp rise in fuel prices. According to the reports I’ve read, the price of diesel has gone up 23 percent. Regular gasoline prices have also risen sharply.
Allegedly, Macron and the French go is raising prices in order to discourage people from using fossil fuels so they can become more of an environmentally “greener” society. I honestly believe that these higher fuel taxes are nothing more than another crafty scheme to fleece the French people of what little money they have left in order to help keep the E.U. afloat for a little while longer.
The plot just got thicker in Tijuana, Mexico as the the first stragglers from the migrant caravan recently arrived on the cusp of the U.S. border. Local Tijuana residents were protesting against their arrival saying that they should go back to Central America (i.e. Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala) The U.S. government has sent 5,000 troops to the border to repel/kill any migrants that’s trying to cross the U.S.-Mexico border. I’m not too surprised with the reaction from many Mexicans about the caravan because they often look down upon their Spanish-speaking brethren in Central America because of the usual ethnic hierarchy within the Hispanic community. I find the whole migrant caravan ironic because they’re headed to a nation that’s the architect of their social and economic dysfunction. If it weren’t for the illegal drug trade that was designed to destroy the Black community in the U.S., there would be no need for the orchestrators of Iran-Contra or any other “rogue groups” to crank out cocaine and heroin by the metric ton every day in these Central American nations. In the case of the Mexicans that are bashing Hondurans and Salvadorans, it’s the pot calling the kettle black. If you read my “Immigration Industrial Complex” article, the Mexicans, Cubans, and Dominicans were in the same situation 30-40 years ago. These groups are now experiencing the American Nightmare that many “third world” nations are foolishly fighting tooth and nail for. The people in the migrant caravan think that they’re going to the land of milk and honey. They shouldn’t be surprised when they see a nation that is fully submerged in drugs, death, despair and debt. Stay safe and vigilant out there!
