    Brazilian media is reporting that ailing Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez will make an emergency trip to Brazil after allegedly suffering intestinal burns during his radiation treatment in Cuba. Chávez, who in June of last year revealed that Cuban doctors had removed a cancerous tumor from his abdominal region, has been going back-and-forth from the island nation for treatment. The Associated Press reported earlier on Thursday that the Venezuelan leader had returned to his country on Wednesday night from radiation treatment in Cuba. "So far, fortunately there hasn't been any adverse reaction to the treatment," Chavez said Wednesday, according to The...
  • Brazil tax cuts, credits throw lifeline to industry

    Reuters ^ | April 3, 2012 | By Alonso Soto and Luciana Otoni
    Brazil's government unveiled a new package of tax cuts, low-cost credits and other relief for ailing industries on Tuesday, seeking to resurrect a once-booming economy struggling to regain momentum. The measures were announced the same day that fresh data showed signs of life in Brazilian industry after a prolonged slump. Analysts, though, cautioned that the latest policies fail to tackle the overall tax burdens, heavy bureaucracy and lack of investment that have long held back Brazil. The government said it will cut payroll taxes to spur hiring in sectors as varied as textiles and plastics to the automotive industry. The...

    Brazil, India and the Global Fighter Market by Robbin Laird 2012 is perhaps a turning point year in the global fighter market. India’s downselect of the Rafale and the possible selection by Brazil of the same aircraft could have some game changing qualities. First, if this were to occur, this would mean that the US is down in the fighter market to global support of already sold legacy aircraft, FMS sales of legacy aircraft and the F-35. And the way Inside the Beltway has been supporting the F-35, the program could become globally challenged. The President has made it clear...
  • Pious coke dealers? Hezbollah: ‘the Gambinos on steroids’ (Operating in the U.S.!!!!)

    It’s hard to uphold a reputation as a devoutly religious terrorist group if you make millions selling cocaine. Just ask Hezbollah. Last month, the US government filed suit against a number of American and Lebanese businesses that allegedly helped bankroll the Lebanese terrorist group. The civil indictment in Manhattan blew the lid off a vast criminal network that included money-laundering, cocaine deals and more — including 30 US car dealerships that helped the group launder cash. As one investigator quipped, Hezbollah is the “Gambinos on steroids.” The indictment charges Hezbollah kingpin Ayman Joumaa with smuggling more than 100 tons of...

    Embraer sells Super Tucanos to three African countries Embraer has sold its Super Tucano light attack/trainer aircraft to Burkina Faso, Angola and Mauritania in deals worth a combined US$180 million, the Brazilian manufacturer announced yesterday. The Burkina Faso Air Force has already received three Super Tucanos, which were spotted at Guararapes International Airport in Recife, Brazil, on September 7 last year during their delivery flight. They are currently being used for border patrol missions. The Super Tucanos are a major boost to Burkina Faso’s small air arm, whose only other combat aircraft are two Mi-35s acquired from Russia in 2005....

    A motorcyclist was left clinging on to a car windscreen after an angry driver rammed into him in a shocking road rage attack in Brazil. The whole episode was captured on camera by a member of the public and has now been posted on You Tube. Video footage shows a woman driver ploughing her silver four-wheel-drive straight into him before crashing her car following an altercation at traffic lights. It appears that the rider had angered the driver by kicking her vehicle and arguing with her after he tried to squeeze through a gap while stopped at a traffic light...

    AllOut wants anti-“homophobia” bill passed in Brazil Brazilian gay website, in partnership with AllOut, denounces opponents of gay dictatorship in Brazil By Julio Severo Socialist parties of Brazil want PLC 122, the main anti-“homophobia” bill in the Brazilian Congress, and other homosexualist laws passed. But what right does AllOut, a US-based homosexualist group, have to press Brazil to copy homosexualist legislations from the US and Europe? Months ago, AllOut, which brags of having about 900,000 backers, launched a campaign to press PayPal to shut down my account. The campaign was successful, leading PayPal to close my account — showing that...

    WASHINGTON _ The Senate on Tuesday resoundingly rejected a sweeping measure to open the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and other protected areas to oil drilling, as well as to approve construction of the Keystone pipeline project. Tuesday's vote was the first time in four years that the Senate has voted on a measure including ANWR drilling, and it failed miserably.

    Brazil in the headlines for its growing buying power By Julio Severo In 2008, I met an American that told us that we (my wife, me and our children) would be living among the nations. Well, we have being living among the nations since 2009! He also told us that 2008 was the last year for America. He told that God was removing his special blessing from America, and that He was in search for another nation — perhaps Brazil. I had no doubts about America, because Christians can see that America has been in massive sins. But a special...

    According to the latest statistics, Brazilians spent $5.9 billion in the U.S. in 2010 in a tsunami of cash that's shifting American immigration practices and boosting economies in hard-hit parts of the U.S. that remain in the doldrums. President Barack Obama recently ordered the State Department to speed up the visa application process for tourists coming from Brazil, China and other nations with newly flush consumers. After suffering decades of hyperinflation, Brazil has ridden high commodity prices along with some of the world's biggest offshore oil discoveries to expand its economy, lift millions out of poverty and multiply the ranks...

    Theology of Integral Mission Can the Gospel be used as a mere platform for an ideology? “Theology of Integral Mission is a [Brazilian] Protestant variation of the Liberation Theology”. — Ariovaldo Ramos, in the Marxist magazine Diplomatique. Ramos is a former president of World Vision in Brazil. By Julio Severo Note: This is a message by me to Brazilian evangelicals, because Theology of Integral Mission is by far the most serious problem in the Brazilian churches, making them prey to political opportunists, and because the dominant political ideology in Brazil, in churches and society, is socialist. I hope that this...

    In hope-against-hope scenario, countries with balance-of-trade surpluses struggle to maintain it. Put Japan, Germany, Brazil, and China in that group. In that group, Japan is losing the Balance of Trade Battle. Japan’s trade deficit widened to a record level in January, as falling exports combined with surging imports of energy. Imports rose 9.8 per cent from a year earlier, while exports were down 9.3 per cent, resulting in a record monthly deficit of Y1.48tn ($19bn). Last year Japan’s trade balance fell into an annual deficit for the first time since 1980, driven by subdued global demand and soaring fossil fuel...

    U.S. jet contract decision "surprised" Brazil government RIO DE JANEIRO/SÃO PAULO (Reuters) - A decision by the United States to cancel a $355 million defense aircraft contract with Brazilian planemaker Embraer (EMBR3.SA) has surprised the government of Brazil which had hoped for the development of a bilateral defense program, Brazil's Foreign Affairs Ministry said on Thursday. The ministry said in a statement that the government was "surprised" with the cancellation "especially with the way that it happened and the timing." The U.S. Air Force earlier this week called off the purchase of 20 Embraer's Super Tucano jets due to problems...
