Osvaldo Siqueira da Silva, 55, stopped to rest on a boulder. He was carrying five one-liter bottles of water to friends up the hill.

That and deals with George Soros to make Billions offshore drilling with what used to be our American Gulf rigs. The elite - the carpet baggers and robber barons of the new world order.
