Minister Facin mentions "authoritarian populism" that threatens democracy



Former President Michel Temer (MDB) was booed for a long time at the MDB convention, which formally confirmed the candidacy for re-election of Federal District Governor Ibanez Rocha (MDB) this Sunday. In a short speech, he limited himself to praising Ibaneis, the candidate for lieutenant governor Celina Leao (PP) and the candidate for senator Flavia Arruda (PL).

Federal candidate, former governor José Roberto Arruda (PL), who tried to run for local government, said he returned to politics to help win the re-election of Ibanez and President Jair Bolsonaro (PL).

Arruda was prosecuted and arrested in connection with the DEM monthly allowance scandal, but this year, by decision of the STJ, he regained his political rights. He asked the gubernatorial candidate to increase the ticket. “Use your intellect to bring in Paulo Octavio,” Arruda said of the SDP-related businessman and politician.

In her speech, Senate candidate Flavia Arruda emphasized that she was a minister of Bolsonaro’s government secretariat, which is located in the Palacio do Alvorada and did not attend the party congress in Brasilia. The former minister gave a speech directed at women and said that the list formed was synonymous with the union.

Ibaneis, Flavia and Arruda support the re-election of Jair Bolsonaro, although the MDB, his party, has its own presidential nominee, Senator Simone Tebet (MS), who currently has an agenda in Sao Paulo.

On the way to the stage of the convention, Temer, head of the MDB, asked Broadcast Político if Ibanez Bolsonaro’s support made the party uncomfortable, but he chose not to answer.

Donald Trump says he is a “victim” of the FBI. Republicans talk about political attack

After the FBI ransacked the home of the former President of the United States, early Monday morning Donald Trump, several family members and members of the Republican Party point to illegal police actions and “political persecution.”

“After working and cooperating with the relevant government agencies, this unannounced raid on my home is inappropriate,” Donald Trump said in a statement, accusing Democratic rivals of using the U.S. Department of Justice as a weapon to stop him from doing so. run in the 2024 presidential election.

The children of the former president also spoke out in favor of Trump. Eric and Donald Junior say the FBI’s investigation is worthy of a “third world country” and a “banana republic.”

Former Trump Secretary of State Mike Pompeo believes in a conspiracy against a businessman and political leader: “Overt politicization of the DOJ/FBI is shameful. The Attorney General must explain why these searches delayed justice for 250 years.”

Rep. Ronnie Jackson even says the FBI has “officially become an enemy of the people.”

The FBI is led by Christopher Ray, who was appointed by Donald Trump in 2017. Officially, investigators have not yet commented on the searches, but US media sources indicate that Donald Trump could have taken confidential documents from the White House without permission.

On political crime and criminal policy – 08.08.2022 – Opinion

On political crime and criminal policy - 08.08.2022 - Opinion

The escalation of violence that has engulfed the political arena has taken another victim. The birthday party, which had former President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva (PT) as its theme, ended tragically after a political antagonist intruded and fired a gun, killing the birthday boy. A police spokesman in the case said it was not a political crime.

And how is a murder with a clearly political motive not a political crime? Sometimes there are such things in the law: it has its own logic. This “magic” created by the codes is not always pleasant, but this time we must give a justification to the law.

Attributing a crime to a political one is not limited only to the motivation of the perpetrator, but also to the actual or potential consequences of the action. Thus, it takes a crime to endanger national sovereignty, democracy, territorial integrity, or the head of any of the Union powers. The gruesome murder may have been politically motivated, but the perpetrator’s intended consequences were limited to the party and its members.

There is no rule relating exclusively to political motivation; thus, this type of motivation corresponds to the concept of abomination, which, in the language of criminal law, is a particularly heinous and heinous crime. Since murder qualifies as hooliganism, the crime is punished more severely. Thus, there is no political crime, but there is a crime in politics.

Besides the issue of the infamous crime in politics, there is another dimension, much more complex, that deserves attention: the politics of crime.

The aggressor was reportedly traveling with his wife and child when he fell out with his political opponents. He left them both safely and returned for a rematch. From the killer’s point of view, he was definitely not a killer, but a patriot or some sort of hero against a villain.

The Manichaean understanding of life, projected into politics, allows for family conflicts, broken friendships, and even marriages, which have been widely reported. Exposing yourself as the bearer of absolute truth allows you to confront the enemy as a hero who must defeat the villain. This kind of absolute contraction is characteristic of religions whose dogmas are guided by love, mercy and tolerance.

Politics, on the other hand, has other dogmas, as it is a stage for disputes over power and ideas. Presenting oneself as the holder of sacred truth outside the religious scene is usually the fuel for the generality of historical atrocities. The politics of crime is born only in the absence of minimum cultural and educational standards, replacing persuasion with knowledge.

There is no other way to suppress criminal politics than to reconsider one’s own convictions, to make room for listening to the opinions of others, no matter how much one wants to convince the other of one’s opinions. In politics, as in science, belief is the worst enemy of consensus, and without a minimum of consensus, there is no nation, only a handful of people shooting at each other.
