"We can no longer take democracy for granted."  Biden urged Americans to stand up to "political violence and intimidation"

The President of the United States believes that in this country “the increase in the number of people who endure political violence or simply remain silent is alarming.”

The president USA (USA) Joe Biden called on Americans to speak out against “political violence and voter intimidation” just days before the midterm elections.

“We can no longer take democracy for granted,” he warned the Democrat on Wednesday in a darker tone than usual and at a time when authorities fear acts of violence due to by-elections dated 8 November.

Joe Biden argued that democracy is under threat from former President Donald Trump, his lies and the violence it inspires.

Pointing to the attack on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband in particular, Biden said Trump’s false claims of a stolen election “spurred a dangerous rise in political violence and voter intimidation over the past two years.”

“It’s illegal. And it’s not American.”

“I stand here today and I see that there are candidates running for every level of government in the United States, for governor, for Congress, for attorney general, for secretary of state, who will not commit themselves to accepting the election results.” Biden said. , six days before the midterm elections.

“This is the path to chaos in America,” he added. “This is unprecedented. It’s illegal. And it is anti-American,” he said.

Biden’s speech comes days after a man who tried to kidnap Nancy Pelosi seriously injured her husband, Paul Pelosi, at their San Francisco home.

“It is alarming that the number of people in this country who endure political violence or simply remain silent is alarming,” Biden said. “Silence is complicity.”

Stressing that this is the first federal election since the January 6, 2021 uprising and Trump’s attempts to go against the will of voters in the 2020 presidential election, Biden urged Americans to reject candidates who denied the poll results.

Before Biden’s speech, U.S. Capitol Police Chief Tom Munger said he had looked into the attack on Pelosi’s husband and that he believes the current political climate calls for more resources and more security for members of Congress after the spike in threats to lawmakers after Jan. 6. .

Gabriela Prioli

In Brazilian public debate, the terms are used inconsistently (not to mention that they are misleading). Some of them are sometimes criminalized. For example: “Ideology” has become synonymous with something bad. But what underlies this? To challenge this issue, a lawyer, professor and communicator Gabriela Prioli launches the book “Ideologies”, dedicated to the three most famous macro-currents of thought: liberalism, conservatism and socialism.

Throughout the book, published by Companhia das Letras, Gabriela Prioli uses her experience as a communicator to make the debate on this topic accessible, which, like other complex topics, is divided into several options.

“Part of my job is to present complex topics in a simple way, but without simplifying, without losing the essential, keeping the main thing,” Prioly explains the purpose of the work. “Ideologies” is the author’s second book about politics – in 2021 she released the book “Politics for All”.

The book revisits the main political theories of the aforementioned ideologies. Prioli defines himself as a “facilitator” to bring the public into contact with the ideas and thoughts presented for the first time. “This is an invitation, a challenge, it is important that people look for the source, create their own criticism of this thought,” he reflects.

Re-elected Rocha remains humble but victorious political articulator |  Politics

The political campaign that resulted in the re-election of Governor Marcos Rocha (União Brasil) was not the easiest. Despite taking the lead in the first round with 1.83% more votes than runner-up Senator Marcos Rogerio (Poland), with whom he ran in the second round and won, by 4.94% valid votes it was difficult. elections that demanded a lot from Roche and his team.

If in the first round the commitment of the partners (secretaries, former secretaries, re-elected and elected deputies, etc.) was not effective, as it should have been, the joining forces in the second round, including with the chief articulator, Chief of Staff Junior Gonçalves leaves his post, to devote himself fully to the electoral campaign in search of unity, commitment and dedication from all partners.

There is no doubt that Marcos Rogerio was a tough opponent. He is a good tribune, knows how to use what he has best, which is his gift of speech, and performed well in the debates held in the second round of the campaign. Several research institutes have reported that Rogerio will be the new governor of Rondônia from 2023.

Simplicity, humility, a government without scandals and with good projects such as Guberno na Cidade, Porteira Aberta, Crianza Feliz, Mamae Cheguey, Prato Facil, Chow Poeira were fundamental in the Quest Rocha of a new mandate.

The partnership with the Legislative Assembly (Ale) chaired by MP Alex Redano (PRB-Ariquemes) also had a huge impact on Roshi’s victory in the second round. In addition to Redano, parliamentarians (re-elected and elected) from the governor’s support group selflessly and decisively joined the campaign after a furious call to “get on the road” in search of votes.

To deny that Roshi had problems during his first term would be an ignorance of reality. He faced at least two years of a pandemic that scared the world. Rondônia’s agribusiness-based economic strength has also been critical in ensuring a strong economy and sufficient resources to overcome the hardships caused by an unforeseen event such as covid-19 that brought the planet to a halt and claimed the lives of many people. Rocha has also performed well in the fight against the pandemic.

The reflection of the satisfaction of the majority of voters by Rocha and his team in the fight against covid-19 was already evident in the first round, when the former Minister of Health Fernando Maximo was elected from the party led by the governor of Rondonia, União Brasil with over 85,000 votes, the best of eight re-elected and elected representatives to the Federal House.

The Legislative Assembly elections also highlighted the strength of the Rocha partnership and organization. Five of the 24 re-elected and elected deputies represent União Brasil. There are at least nine more people who can be considered partners for a second term, which will begin on the 1st of next year.

Roche’s re-election was no accident. This is a government without scandals that has had a pandemic with negative consequences around the world, but in doing so, managed to get around the problems that were resolved peacefully. Gaining a new mandate, now that the pandemic is under control and the state is resuming development, including the emergence of the denim industry announced by the governor a few days ago, offering more than 1,000 jobs starting in 2023, will bolster Rondônia’s already balanced economy. , with a 2023 budget of BRL 13 billion.

The emergence of the denim industry indicates the intention to invest in this segment. It is necessary to produce at least a little of what we produce in abundance and quality, for example, soybeans. The denim factory is the start of a manufacturing process that can provide Marcos Roche and his team with the support they need to run smoothly and efficiently.

It is important to warn that partnership does not mean submission, and therefore good relations between the executive and legislature and the vigilance of the judiciary are necessary.
