That's a fair point, it could just be institutionalized corruption and not directly related to Jair. Or it could mean that the cocaine trafficking operation was started with him.

I just couldn't help but gloat a little at the international embarrassment. Bad press for the enemy is good news for me. :)

Corporate Media Are Downplaying Resistance to Brazil's Far-Right Leader

"The problem is bigger than individual flaws with foreign correspondents. Like Trump and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, Jair Bolsonaro represents what George Monbiot refers to as a “killer clown” (Guardian, 7/26/19). According to Monbiot, clowns like Bolsonaro provide distraction and deflection for elites. “While the kleptocrats fleece us,” he says, “we are urged to look elsewhere.”

While the commercial media distracts us with horror stories about Jair Bolsonaro the killer clown, their corporate advertisers are making billions from the deregulation of pesticides and mining, petroleum and pension fund privatization in Brazil. You have to ask yourself if these newspapers really want Bolsonaro to leave office. Could wanting him to stick around be why they prioritize feel-bad click bait about Bolsonaro’s clownish behavior over showing solidarity with the people fighting against his government?

Regardless of the motives, one thing is for sure: Downplaying and ignoring organized resistance supports Bolsonaro’s sub-fascist project for Brazil, and the US corporations that benefit from it."

11 Questions US Congress is Asking the DOJ About Lava Jato

"13 Democratic Members of Congress delivered a letter to US Attorney General William Barr this week, demanding answers to questions about the legality and ethics of the Department of Justice’s involvement the Lava Jato investigation and imprisonment of former President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva.

As Brasil Wire has documented for the last 4 years, the US DOJ used the Foreign Corrupt Practices act to collect billions of dollars in fines from Brazilian companies through its active participation in Lava Jato . A series of leaked Telegram conversations revealed in the Intercept, now show that judge Moro and the Curitiba public prosecutors office acted illegally, in a politicized manner, to remove front runner President Lula from the 2018 presidential elections, convicting him of a crime with no material evidence and opening the door for a victory for right wing extremist Jair Bolsonaro, who immediately awarded Moro with a cabinet position. In March, 2019, the DOJ attempted to gift the now-disgraced Lava Jato task force $682 million to open a privately managed “anti-corruption” think tank in Curitiba. The move was blocked by the Superior Justice Court for violating Brazilian law."

I have no idea what it is. To be honest I believe this was just some prop used in a square dance party or something that they tought beautiful and put it there. I'm itching to ask what is that... it is still there, too
The Fourth Reich attempts a reboot started in a favela? Is there much of an anti-nazi scene there?

They were drug dealers, it says right there in the text. To be fair I quite never understood why they did this

Yes, the Christian Militia are drug dealers, I’m not sure what your point is with that though?
