      Brazil media blast ‘legal anarchy’ after foiled Lula release
      Date created : 20/12/2018 – 16:54

      Brazil’s media scathingly criticized “legal anarchy” in their country Thursday, a day after one judge’s order that could have freed imprisoned ex-president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva was shot down by another judge.

      Lula, a leftist former leader who ruled 2003 to 2010 but who is now behind bars for graft, saw his hopes raised then dashed in the space of a few hours on Wednesday.

      A supreme court judge, Marco Aurelio Mello, had issued an order that could have seen all prisoners in Lula’s situation — nonviolent ones who have lost an initial appeal but continued to challenge their convictions — provisionally released.

      We do know there was a Coup d’état of sorts by Right Wing forces.

      Flimsy evidence have removed and tarnished two left wing presidents. The ends justifies the means mentality is at work there. It is a strange feeling, the rich in Brazil do not want to happen there what has happened in Venezuela.

      John Bolton could not wait to get to Brazil to visit with the incoming president. Bolton got right down there so fast you would think he was handing the incoming president a lost scepter and crown.

      If you cannot dazzle them with brilliance, baffle them with bullshit WC Fields
