Pompeo heading to Brazil for inauguration of far-right president

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will head a U.S. delegation to Brazil seeking to foster closer ties with the far-right incoming president, Jair Bolsonaro, and discuss ways to counter the Venezuelan government.
It’s notable how Trump, Pence, Bolton, and Pompeo have had nothing but praise, scripted or not, for Bolsonaro even after House Democrats called for a rebuke of his fascistic politics.
According to another report, this will be an opportunity for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, also attending the inauguration of the candidate who is promising to be a staunch ally of Israel and America with rhetoric that mimics Trump’s Jerusalem embassy decision and toughness with Iran among other positions, to discuss key issues like Syria with Pompeo.

There may be lessons to learn.
People don’t vote against their interests, (despite what nose-in-the-air Dems like to tell each other about “those stupid poor whites”). It’s more that their interests aren’t what liberals think those interests should be. If hurt by crime, they want law and order. If talked down to by smarmy big-city academics, they want a plain-spoken “common man” (or, in Trump’s case, someone who fakes it decently). If watching impoverished Venezuelan refugees flee economic collapse and political persecution, they’ll vote for the anti-Maduro.

A day of reckoning is coming as it came in the 30’s. We can postpone it but not avoid it.
When you think you have no choice but to start a war, think again. Wars promise to be quick, clean and decisive. Wars lie. They cause more problems than they solve, they just won't tell you that beforehand.
