Bolsonaro attacks on cards for democracy



Bolsonaro attacks on cards for democracy

The indirect target of the pro-democracy letters to be read today at USP (University of São Paulo) Faculty of Law, President Jair Bolsonaro (LP) has issued a series of criticisms of the documents since they started collecting signatures last month.

There have been at least eight statements against the manifestos in recent weeks, with more than 100 organizations and 890,000 people joining as of 10:00 pm yesterday. Bolsonaro not only minimized the document, calling it a “letter”, but also attacked those who signed it, calling them, for example, spineless and “mammals”.

While four former presidents signed some of the demonstrations, Bolsonaro preferred to attack the signers in interviews, a cult, meetings with bankers and politicians, meetings with supporters, and on his weekly live broadcast. Through Twitter, he also mocked the movement and declared that he was in favor of democracy.

“We don’t need any letters.” Criticism of Bolsonaro began at the end of July, when two documents were already in circulation and will be read out today: the Fiesp (São Paulo State Federation of Industry) manifesto for democracy, which was joined by 107 organizations, and the democracy letter, organized by USP Law, which collected signatures lawyers, celebrities and civil society.

In his speech at the PP congress on the 27th he stated that he didn’t need any “letter” defend democracy.

We don’t need any letter to say that we are defending democracy and want to more and more observe and respect the Constitution.

“This is Peaks.” The day after the PP convention, Bolsonaro addressed supporters as he left the Palacio da Alvorada and criticized the support of the document by the banks.

The addition of organizations such as Febraban (Brazilian Federation of Banks) was a reaction to the creation of Pix for “ending the monopoly” in the sector, he said. Ciro Nogueira (PP), Chief Minister of the Civic Chamber, echoed the same argument, saying banks would have lost 40 billion reais due to the change.

However, the accusations are unfounded. First, because Peaks was not the brainchild of Bolsonaro’s government., and, yes, the Central Bank during the administration of predecessor Michel Temer (MDB). In addition, the loss of income for banks due to the innovation amounted to about 1.5 billion reais, which is more than 20 times lower than indicated by the minister.

“Scared or what?Inspiring interest in the bankers in the morning, Bolsonaro returned to the topic on the night of July 28 during his weekly live broadcast. On the air, he announced that he would sign the manifestos. if they didn’t have a “political-electoral bias”and said he did not understand the signers’ fear of a democratic break.

Can not understand. What are you afraid of? if I [há] three and a half years in government and there was no word, no action, no gesture from me… I never spoke in a panic, about the control of social media, about the democratization of the press, nothing. This is a political, pre-election note

Manifesto without Twitter. Faced with growing commitment to the Charter for Democracy, which added more than 100 thousand spikes in 24 hours On July 29, the president ridiculed the mobilization.

On his Twitter account, he published a manifesto called “Manifesto Letter for Democracy”, consisting of one sentence: “I hereby declare that I am for democracy.”

“Mammal Entrepreneurs”. In another conversation with supporters on August 1, Bolsonaro reiterated his suspicions about the motivation of the manifesto’s supporters. He told followers that the letters were signed by bankers, artists, and “a few mammalian businessmen.”

It was a hint that the signatories would be interested in “sucking the nipples of the state”, that is, to benefit from the possible defeat of the president in the elections.

“Without character.” In an interview with Rádio Guaíba on the 2nd, the president raised the tone of his statements. He stated that the proponents of the text were “stubborn” and “stubborn” when commenting on the issue.

The people who signed this manifesto are spineless and cocks. I will not use another adjective here because I am a very polite person.

Connection with the pandemic. At an evangelical service in the Chamber of Deputies on the 3rd, the president called the measures taken by governors and mayors in the fight against the covid-19 pandemic a “dictatorship”. Speaking about measures to contain the disease, the president reproached the supporters of the letter for democracy for not protesting then.

During the pandemic, as we have seen, they committed atrocities. Nobody said the word democracy, everything could be done. I was against all this, even when some rights were suppressed by governors and mayors. You have a little sense of what a dictatorship is. None of those who sign the “letters” showed up at that moment.

Attack on Lulu. Last Monday (8) Bolsonaro ridiculed the decision of former President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva (Portugal), his main rival in the presidential race, to sign the USP letter along with his wife Gianna. In a conversation with bankers, he ridiculed the fact that members of the Foro de São Paulo, a left-wing Latin American political organization, had signed a manifesto.

“Everyone from Foro de São Paulo should be invited to sign the Charter for Democracy right now… Let’s get Bolsonaro out of there. Better a corrupt democrat than an honest one under a strong regime. regime? “Say my word against democracy? Has my deputy been arrested?” he asked.

The dollar continues to reflect the political scenario

Yesterday, financial agents evaluated the opposite decision of the Federal Supreme Court (STF) regarding the so-called secret budget. In addition, a decision was made by STF Minister Gilmar Méndez to issue an injunction that would exclude the Bolsa Família from the spending cap rule, with investors trying to understand how this measure would affect the processing of the transitional PEC in the Chamber of Deputies. Oh this PEC!!!!

Since he is an exchange investor, any reading that the budget will be exceeded or become more flexible will negatively affect the exchange market, whether through the PEC or in any other way. We will continue with volatility today.

Looking beyond, the US Central Bank (Fed), although slowing down the pace of monetary tightening at its December meeting, issued a tougher-than-expected statement warning that its fight against inflation was not yet over, raising fears that rising US interest rates will push the world’s largest economy into recession.

The currency market continues to react to political news. The voting on the PEC is saved for today. It is expected that it will indeed be reviewed to open the way tomorrow for discussions on the 2023 budget.

Yesterday, the spot price closed the selling day at R$5.3103.

For today on the calendar we will have an index of consumer confidence in the eurozone. Good luck and good luck in business!!

The EU has reached a political agreement on limiting gas prices – 19.12.2022



Germany sentenced Russian to life imprisonment for political murder by order of Moscow - 12/15/2021
BRUSSELS, DECEMBER 19 (ANSA). European Union countries reached a political agreement on Monday (19) to impose a natural gas price ceiling of 180 euros per megawatt hour (MWh). The main sources of income for Russia and the minimization of the use of energy as a weapon by the regime of Vladimir Putin.

The agreement was approved by a supermajority at a ministerial meeting of member states in Brussels, Belgium, after months of discussions about the best way to contain the rise in natural gas prices in the bloc caused by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. .

The value set by the countries is well below the proposal made by the European Commission, the EU’s executive body, in November: 275 EUR/MWh. However, the countries leading the cap campaign were in favor of an even lower limit, around 100 EUR/MWh.

Germany, always wary of price controls, voted in favor of 180 euros, while Austria and the Netherlands, also skeptical of the cap, abstained. Hungary, the most pro-Russian country in the EU, voted against.

The instrument will enter into force on 15 February, but only if natural gas prices on the Amsterdam Stock Exchange exceed 180 euros/MWh for three consecutive days. In addition, the difference compared to a number of global benchmarks should be more than 35 euros.

Italy, the EU’s biggest supporter of the ceiling, has claimed responsibility for the measure. “This is a victory for Italy, which believed and worked for us to reach this agreement,” Environment and Energy Minister Gilberto Picetto tweeted.

“This is a victory for Italian and European citizens who demand energy security,” he added.

However, Russia has already threatened to stop exports to countries that adhere to the ceiling. (ANSA).
