      The jokes just write themselves…..

      Jair Bolsonaro’s efforts to portray himself as an anti-corruption crusader have suffered another blow after police reportedly seized a wad of banknotes from between the clenched buttocks of one of his allies….

      “To give you a sense of just how preposterous the situation was, some of the recovered notes were stained with faeces,” reported Revista Crusoé, the conservative magazine that broke the story…

      Brazilians shared the news under the viral hashtag #PropinaNaBunda (A Bribe up the Bum). Many suggested that the find would be remembered “in the anals of history”….

      important detail:

      “Chico Rodrigues, the Brazilian president’s deputy leader in the senate… part of an operation against the suspected misappropriation of public funds for fighting Covid-19…. stashed in the underpants of Rodrigues, a senator…Brazil’s far-right president won power in 2018 promising to eradicate political thievery after what some called the biggest corruption investigation in history.”

      You can’t make this shit up

      “There’s a new spirit abroad in the land. The old days of ‘grab and greed’ are on their way out. We’re beginning to think of what we owe the other fellow, not just what we’re compelled to give him. The time’s coming… when we shan’t be able to fill our bellies in comfort while others go hungry, sleep in warm beds while others shiver in the cold.... And God willing, we’ll live to see that day…” Basil Rathbone,"Sherlock Holmes Faces Death" (Universal 1943)

      MEXICO CITY — Mexico’s former defense minister had a secret life in which he used the army to help a cartel send heroin, cocaine and other drugs to the United States, according to American court documents released Friday.

      Some called him the Godfather.

      Retired Gen. Salvador Cienfuegos, 72, was detained Thursday at the Los Angeles International Airport. Prosecutors in New York unsealed a four-count indictment Friday charging him with drug- and money-laundering crimes. He appeared in a federal court in Los Angeles via video later Friday, but a hearing on his detention was delayed until Tuesday. His attorney, Duane Lyons, did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

      Cienfuegos’s arrest has raised the startling possibility that top Mexican security officials have quietly been working with traffickers during most of the U.S.-backed offensive against the cartels that began in 2006.

      I remembered when they tried to pass themselves off as supporting family values and Christian ideals. Since when is stealing and thievery a Christian or family value?

      Now the stupid Christians and Evangelicals are about the only ones who support these very corrupt leaders. They even found a female Christian cultist handmaiden to put on the Supremes. It seems the US Supreme Court is now the cess pool for crappy judges, cultists and rapists.

        We are an arrogant species, believing our fantasy based "facts" are better than the other person's fake facts.
        If you are wrong, it will be because you are not cynical enough.
        Both major political parties are special interest groups enabling each other for power and money, at the expense of the people they no longer properly serve…
        Always wear a proper mask when out and about. The life you save could be both yours and mine.
