    New York (CNN Business)Twitter suspended an account on Monday afternoon that helped spread a controversial encounter between a Native American elder and a group of high school students wearing Make America Great Again hats. The account claimed to belong to a California schoolteacher. Its profile photo was not of a schoolteacher, but of a blogger based in Brazil, CNN Business found. Twitter suspended the account soon after CNN Business asked about it. The account, with the username @2020fight, was set up in December 2016 and appeared to be the tweets of a woman named Talia living in California. "Teacher &...

    The Catholic Archdiocese of Baltimore issued a separate condemnation of the students, tweeting that they had shown “disrespect” toward a Native American elder. The Archdiocese of Baltimore condemns the disrespect shown toward a Native American elder during the March for Life.

    Cesare Battisti, an Italian sought by Rome for four murders attributed to a far-left group in the 1970s, has been detained in Bolivia and will be extradited to Brazil and then likely to Italy, a senior aide to Brazil's new president said Sunday. Battisti was detained late Saturday in Bolivia "and will be soon brought to Brazil, from where he will probably be sent to Italy to serve a life sentence," tweeted Filipe G. Martins, a senior aide on international affairs to Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro. Italy has repeatedly sought the extradition of Battisti, who has lived in Brazil for...
  • Brazil's New President Eliminates LGBT Office on First Day in Office

    On Jan. 1, the day he was sworn in as Brazil's new president, conservative Jair Bolsonaro signed an executive order removing LGBT concerns from the government's human rights ministry, apparently affirming his traditional Christian, pro-family views and his rejection of "gender-based ideology." In his inauguration speech, Bolsonaro, who is strongly anti-socialist, said, “We are going to unite the people, rescue the family, respect religions and our Judeo-Christian tradition, combat gender ideology, conserving our values.” The executive order that removes LGBT concerns from the ministry did not designate any other government office to address those issues.

    Brazilian President-Elect, Jair Bolsonaro, is following President Donald Trump in keeping promises he made during his campaign, or at least, he is continuing to say he will keep one of those promises only three days before being sworn in, on 1 January 2018. From Three days before being sworn-in, Brazil's far-right President-Elect Jair Bolsonaro stated on Saturday that he intends to sign a decree to allow people with no criminal record to buy guns.“By decree, we intend to guarantee the POSSESSION of firearms for the citizen without criminal antecedents, as well as make its registration definitive,” Bolsonaro wrote...

  • How Brazil's New President Will Prove, Yet Again, That Gun Control Is Harmful

    Townhall ^ | January 4, 2019 | John R. Lott, Jr.
    Brazil’s strict gun control laws have failed. The country's annual homicide rate now stands at 31 per 100,000 people—almost six times higher than the US rate. Despite bolstering of law enforcement after Brazil’s disarmament legislation took effect in 2003, the country's homicide rate is higher now than in 2002. The true rate is undoubtedly even worse as government figures have in the past systematically undercounted homicides by about 15 percent and that gap appears to increase over time.
  • Bolsonaro government launches purge of Brazil public service (purge of leftist contractors)

    The administration of Brazil's new President Jair Bolsonaro said Thursday it is starting a purge of government contractors to get rid of those who don't share its far-right ideology. The government "will clean the house," chief of staff Onyx Lorenzoni told a news conference after the first cabinet meeting with Bolsonaro, who took office this week. "It's the only way to govern with our ideas, our concepts and to carry out what Brazil's society decided in its majority," he said. The sweep will target contractors deemed sympathetic to the centrist and left-wing parties that have ruled Brazil for most of...

    I’m old enough to remember when the idea of countries moving their embassies in Israel to Jerusalem was a huge controversy that swallowed up the news cycle. Whatever happened to that story? Well, it’s back in the news this week but we’re no longer talking about the United States. The new president of Brazil, Jair Bolsonaro, announced yesterday that his country would be following suit and moving their embassy as well. This represents a huge shift from the nation’s previous leftist governments which went out their way to criticize Israel and embrace the Palestinians. (Free Beacon) Brazil is set...

    Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro says he is open to the possibility of the United States some day opening a military base in the South American country and added that Brazil was concerned about Russia’s ties to Venezuela. "Depending on what might happen in the world, who knows if we might have to talk about a U.S. base in the future," the 63-year-old far-right president, who assumed office on January 1, told SBT television in an interview. Bolsonaro, who said he is a fan of President Donald Trump, said he supports U.S. policy with regard to opposing the "authoritarian regimes" of...

    The worldwide news media claims that Bolsonaro has it backwards. Bloomberg News scoffs: “It’s hard to buy the current proposals championed by gun lobbyists and a few political yahoos who aim to make Brazil safer by slackening controls.” The Wall Street Journal warns, “violence experts say simply adding more guns to the mix … will only make the murder rate climb faster.” Gun control advocates always make the simplistic argument that more guns means more crime. When states passed permitted concealed handgun laws there were always predictions of blood in the streets. Yet, there is a reason that no state...

    Conventional wisdom among the media and politician branches of the Democratic Party holds that President Trump and the Republicans will pay a serious price for the very partial (25%) “government shutdown” as it drags on. The passage of House budget bill with not even one dollar, as Speaker Pelosi averred, is supposed to increase pressure on President Trump in their view. They seem to believe that the public so loves visiting national parks in the middle of the winter – one of the few aspects of the 25% of the federal government that affects ordinary voters – that Republicans...

    So much for Mitt Romney's claim that the U.S. has alienated its allies. Actually, they're lining up, and not just to be friends, but to ask for U.S. military bases stationed on their soil. But when was the last time you heard of nations lining up to ask for U.S. military bases? Not under President Obama, that's for sure. The latest is Brazil, whose new president, Jair Bolsonaro put the idea on the table. The Russians over at RT News, naturally, noticed: Brazil's newly-sworn-in right-wing President Jair Bolsonaro has said that he might consider hosting a US military base in the future and...

    SAO PAULO/BRASILIA (Reuters) - Brazil’s new President Jair Bolsonaro said on Thursday that he would be open to the possibility of the United States operating a military base on his country’s soil, a move that would form a sharp shift in direction for Brazilian foreign policy. Bolsonaro, who took power on Tuesday, said that Russia’s support of President Nicolas Maduro’s “dictatorship” in neighboring Venezuela had significantly ramped up tensions in the region and was a worrying development. Asked by the SBT TV network in an interview taped on Thursday if that meant he would allow U.S. military presence in Brazil,...
