Vamos Enviar e-Mails para Augusto Nardes
Let’s send e-mails to Augusto Nardes

É incrível, absurdo, inadmissível. O Ttribunal de Contas da União deu trinta dias à presidente Dilma Rousseff para que ela explicasse as chamadas “pedaladas fiscais”. O prazo termina no dia 21 de julho. Acontece que, segundo informação veiculada pelo site O Antagonista, as irregularidades apontadas pelo Ministério Público de Contas não constam do aviso enviado a ela, para que ela possa tentar se defender adequadamente. Pior que isso é o fato de esse documento ter sumido do processo dentro do próprio TCU. Tudo feito em silêncio, para facilitar a vida da ex-presidente em exercício. No dia 3 de julho, o procurador Julio Marcelo de Oliveira enviou requerimento pedindo explicações ao ministro Augusto Nardes, o relator das pedaladas. Até agora, nada.
Mais do que explicações, a sociedade exige uma ação rápida e certeira no sentido de se corrigir essa situação absurda. O Blog do Lessa se junta a’O Antagonista para convocar os leitores que enviem seus e-mails ao ministro Augusto Nardes, do TCU, exigindo que o documento com as irregularidades eleitoreiras constatadas pelo Ministério Público de Contas volte a constar do processo das pedaladas de Dilma Rousseff — documento que precisa, também, ser encaminhado à atual ocupante do Planalto. O e-mail do ministro Augusto Nardes é  nardes@tcu.gov.br

Para encerrar: caso você se interesse por saber a extensão dos crimes cometidos pelo desgoverno petralha nessa área (atitude que continua em 2015, com toda a cara de pau, apesar de procedimentos judiciais instaurados), o documento do Ministério Público de Contas está aqui, nesse link.

It is incredible, absurd, inadmissible. The Union Accounting Tribunal (equivalent to the GAO in the U.S.) has given 30 days to president Dilma Rousseff so she can explain the so-called “fiscal pedalling” maneuvers*. Deadline is set for July 21st. However, according to information published by the site O Antagonista, the irregularities pointed out by a document that served as basis for the complaint are not part of the notice sent to the president, allowing her to defend herself accordingly. Worse than that is the fact that the document went missing inside the Brazilian GAO itself! Everything done quietly, to make it easy for Ms. Rousseff. On July 3rd, attorney Julio Marcelo Oliveira sent a document requesting explanations from minister Augusto Nardes, the TCU justice in charge of the case. So far, nothing has happened.
More than explanations, Brazilians demand a fast and straightforward type of action in order to correct this absurd situation. The Lessa Blog joins O Antagonista in asking its readers to send e-mails to minister Augusto Nardes, at the TCU, demanding that the document with the election-oriented irregularities verified by the Accounting Prosecutor’s Office again becomes an integral part of the case against Dilma Rousseff — a document that also needs to be sent to the present occupant of the Planalto Palace. Minister Augusto Nardes’ e-mail is nardes@tcu.gov.br

One more thing: if you can read a Brazilian Portuguese text and are interested in knowing how criminally deep the petralha (un)administration is right now, regarding those maneuvers (something that unbelievable still happens to this day, as if nothing was happening to them), the “missing” document of the Accounting Prosecutor’s Office can be seen here.
*These fiscal maneuvers have been deemed criminal because, in essence, they represent the use of official banks (Bank of Brazil and Caixa Econômica Federal) to finance the administration. That is expressly forbidden by the Fiscal Responsibility Act.

Não se Engane: Acabou
Don’t be fooled: it’s over

Nada como almoçar com quem sabe das coisas e tem acesso às pessoas certas. A verdade é que, para todos os efeitos e apesar das bravatas de fim-de-festa de nossa Rainha da Mandioca, a farra acabou para ela e sua gang petralha. As conversas entre políticos agora só tratam de cargos a serem ocupados no pós-Dilma. Já existe até um ministério paralelo com nomes de peso, aguardando a posse, depois dessa transição lá não muito silenciosa. Tudo depende agora de como se dará a negociação entre PMDB, que empurra a Mulher-Sapiens para o abismo, e o PSDB, a dolente Oposição de Sofá que gostaria de ver tudo cair no seu colo sem o mínimo esforço. As negociações entre os dois partidos seguem em três vertentes: o apoio do PSDB a um próximo governo Temer, desde que somente a Bonequinha de Luxo caia fora; o apoio do PMDB a um eventual governo tucano, que chegaria ao Planalto após a cassação do diploma da chapa Dilma-Temer; e finalmente, um acerto entre PMDB-PSDB diante de uma eleição geral a ser convocada a partir do impeachment de Dilma e Temer.

Nothing like having lunch with the right people, those who are in the know and have access to the “right” people. The truth of the matter is that, for all practical purposes and despite the last-minute bravado by the Cassava Queen, the party is over for her and the rest of the petralha gang. Talks among politicians now are dealing only with posts to be filled during the post-Dilma. There is a parallel cabinet, already, with names defined for each cabinet seat, just waiting the end of this not-so-silent transition. All depends now on the negotiations between PMDB, the party pushing the Woman-Sapiens over the cliff, and PSDB, the lazy Sofa Opposition that would love to see everything falling on its lap with no effort on its part whatsoever. Negotiations between the two parties follow three leads: 1. the PSDB support to a Temer administration, as long as only the “Hepburn from Hell” is thrown out; 2. the PMDB support to a possible tucano (PSDB) administration that would fill in the gap after the Dilma-Temer presidential diploma is legally voided; and 3. an understanding between PMDB and PSDB to share the spoils if a general election is held three months after the Dilma-Temer impeachment.

O Acaso Não Existe
“Random” does not exist

dolor3Certamente você já viu a Rainha da Mandioca, Mulher-Sapiens, em diversas situações onde a única saída minimamente compreensível seria a internação imediata num manicômio judiciário. As frases ditas por ela estão por toda a parte, sendo a do “cachorro atrás de uma criança”, talvez, a mais famosa e emblemática.
Pois bem agora, o Blog do Lessa, num furo exclusivo de reportagem, descobriu que o destrambelhamento mental da Bonequinha de Luxo tem raizes genéticas. Ex-vizinhos da sua casa, no bairro de São Pedro, em Belo Horizonte, onde Dilma “Devassa” Rousseff viveu na juventude, mantêm vivas até hoje as recordações da chamada “Casa do Piano”. Assim era chamada a casa da ex-presidente da República em exercício. A impressão dos ex-vizinhos era de que progenitora de Dilma “era, em geral, meio tan-tan”. Nota: o Blog do Lessa não pôde verificar essa condição de maneira independente.
Os relatos dão conta de que, durante o dia, a casa permanecia silenciosa. À noite, no entanto, a mãe da Rainha da Mandioca começava a tocar piano — e, segundo os testemunhos, tocava bem, especialmente peças clássicas. O problema é que ela tocava a noite inteira, perturbando o sono dos vizinhos. Daí veio o apelido “Casa do Piano”. Agora, portanto, já se tem uma pista sobre a falta de parafusos na cabeça da chefe interina da Orcrim.

You must have seen several situations where the Cassava Queen, a.k.a. Woman-Sapiens, would only have one way out: immediate admission to a state-controlled mental hospital. All the crazy sentences she has uttered are everywhere — perhaps the most famous and emblematic so far could be the one about “the dog behind the child.”
Well… now The Lessa Blog has discovered and brings the information to you, exclusively, that the “Hepburn from Hell’s” mental screw-ups may have genetic basis. Former neighbors of the home where Dilma “Devassa” Rousseff used to live as a young girl, at the Sao Pedro borough in Belo Horizonte (Minas Gerais state), remember to this day the so-called “Piano House.” That’s how the the former president in exercise’s home was called. The general impression was that Dilma’s mother “had a few screws missing.” It should be noted that The Lessa Blog has not been able to verify that fact independently.
Former neighbors report that during the day, the house was usually silent. At night, however, the Cassava Queen’s mother started to play the piano. According to witnesses, she played it very well, especially classical music. The problem was that she kept playing the whole night long, disturbing the neighbors’ sleep. That’s how the nickname “Piano House” came up. Therefore, now one can have a solid clue about the number of screws missing in Dilma’s head.

HÁ SINAIS DE QUE HÉLIO DOYLE CONTINUA NO GOVERNO

Cristaliza-se nos bastidores da política brasiliense a visão de que o ex-secretário Hélio Doyle continua dando as cartas no GDF (apelidado por ele de Governo de Brasília). Um sinal explícito veio do sub-secretário de Imprensa, respeitado e experiente jornalista Ricardo Callado, que pediu demissão do governo na semana passada. No Facebook, Callado disse que estava saindo porque Hélio Doyle, mesmo demitido, continuava mandando. Ele escreveu isso assim mesmo, nesses termos, mas todo mundo fez que não viu. Nas últimas horas, circula nos porões da política o boato de que houve reunião no GDF, domingo de tarde, com a presença de Hélio Doyle, quando ele reorientou a equipe de Comunicação Social do governo para o enfrentamento com a presidente da Câmara Legislativa, Celina Leão. Consta, como boato, que haveria gravação desta reunião, mas parece que alguém tenta negociar esta fita, como costuma acontecer muito na sujeira da política brasiliense. Se tudo for mentira, vale a pena se observar melhor o GDF, que precisa mudar – mas talvez não mude nunca.

THERE ARE SIGNS THAT HELIO DOYLE STILL IS IN THE ADMINISTRATION
It is becoming more and more clear for those who operate the brasiliense politics that former secretary Helio Doyle continues to call the shots in the GDF (acronym for Government of the Federal District; Doyle, however, nicknamed it “Brasilia Government”). An explicit sign came from the Press undersecretary: the respected, experienced journalist Ricardo Callado called it quits last week. On Facebook, Callado said the was leaving because Helio Doyle, although fired from the GDF, was still calling the shots. He wrote it like that, with those words, but everyone pretended not having seen it. More recently, rumors are circulating about an alleged meeting that occurred last Sunday afternoon with Helio Doyle present. At the time, he directed the GDF Social Communications team to fight the local assembly’s president Celina Leao. Another rumor is that there would be a recording of that meeting. It looks, though, that someone is trying to negotiate (sell) the recording, as it has become the norm in the filthy brasiliense politics. If it is all a lie, at least it’s worth observing the GDF a little more carefully because it needs to change — although this may never happen.

Você Não Verá Isso na TV – 1
You Won’t See This on TV – 1

Essa foi a recepção que a Mulher-Sapiens, nome científico de Dilma “Devassa” Rousseff — a.k.a. Bonequinha de Luxo ou Rainha da Mandioca, teve de brasileiros nos Estados Unidos. Claro, as redes de TV aberta não mostraram, mas o Blog do Lessa está aí para preencher esse vazio para você, mantendo-o(a) bem informado(a).

This was the reception that the Woman-Sapiens, scientific name given to Dilma “Devassa”* Rousseff — a.k.a. Hepburn from Hell** or Cassava Queen***, had from Brazilians in the United States. Your TV’s regular programming didn’t show it, of course, but The Lessa Blog is here to fill in the blanks for you, so that you stay on top of what’s happening.

For those outside Brazil not knowing what the hell is going on around the country:
*She has been nicknamed “Devassa” because this is a brand of beer that matches former president Lula’s nickname (“Brahma”) discovered during the Car Wash investigations.
**Hepburn from Hell? This was because she stayed for a couple of nights at a St. Regis hotel suite in NYC for only… 11 thousand dollars a night.
***She has been nicknamed Cassava Queen (and Woman-Sapiens) for her most recent LSD-like statements in front of an audience. You can see two videos about this if you go down the blog’s timeline.

Não se deixe enganar. Não há nada de “político” na Operação Lava-Jato. O caso é de polícia, sem tirar nem por. A esta altura, os três meliantes da foto acima e o resto da quadrilha deveriam estar presos.

Don’t get fooled. There is nothing “political” about the “Car Wash” operation. It is a police case, fair and square. Right now, the three criminals pictured above and the rest of the gang should be in jail.

Apesar do Medo, a Arrogância
Arrogance, even in fear

dilma_bicycle

Observe a inversão de valores: enquanto os índices de popularidade de Dilma Roussef, a Mulher-Sapiens, caem abaixo do volume morto, aumentam as preocupações com sua segurança. A segurança de que ela dispõe, no entanto, não é a mesma com a qual os brasileiros comuns podem contar. Que o diga o médico carioca morto a facadas na margem da lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas quando andava de bicicleta. O médico salvava vidas, curava pessoas. A Mulher-Sapiens, acima, dilapida o Estado, destrói o futuro de milhões de brasileiros, acaba literalmente com a vida de muita gente. Ela, no entanto, dispõe de guarda-costas para passear com sua bicicleta importada, privilégio que o médico Jaime Gold não desfrutava. E… claro, a suprema arrogância: a Mulher-Sapiens começou a andar de bicicleta ostensivamente protegida logo depois que o médico foi assassinado — mais um tapa na cara do cidadão de bem.

Take a look at how values are inverted here: while the popularity of Dilma Roussef, the Woman-Sapiens, falls freely, the worries about her security go through the roof. The security she enjoys, however, is not the same Brazilians elsewhere can count on. The Rio de Janeiro physician who was killed a few weeks ago while riding his bike around the Rodrigo de Freitas lake is one of them. Doctor Jaime Gold saved lives, cured people. The Woman-Sapiens, above, wrecks the State, destroys the future of millions of Brazilians, literally ends the life of a lot of people. However, she has bodyguards to go riding a bicycle, a privilege others like Jaime Gold did not have.  And, of course, the supreme arrogance: with ostensible protection, the Woman-Sapiens began to ride her bicycle a couple of days after Gold’s murder — one more slap on the face of each and every citizen who works hard and pays taxes to have nothing in return but corruption.

PT x PT, ou… Bandido contra Bandido
PT x PT, or… criminal versus criminal

fsp2

O Blog do Lessa acrescenta que as pedaladas continuam em 2015, desafiando frontalmente a LRF.

The story above, published by Folha de S.Paulo newspaper, indicates that former president Lula da Silva, a.k.a. Brahma, personally encouraged the TCU (federal accounting office) minister in charge of analyzing Dilma Rousseff’s numbers to go on the record against the so called “pedaladas fiscais” (a term used to describe the criminal scheme set up by Dilma’s team where the payments to be disbursed by the Treasury were being actually paid by official banks, like Banco do Brasil and Caixa Economica Federal, in express violation of the Fiscal Responsibility Act). Lula’s action occurred at the same time he started to openly criticize his protegé’s administration. The Folha de S.Paulo newspaper reports that Lula told TCU minister Jose Mucio Monteiro, a close ally, he thought it was reasonable that the TCU requested additional explanation regarding the fiscal maneuvers. As described above, public banks use their own resources to make payments for the administration, which is illegal. Tha Lula-Mucio talks occurred when the minister’s vote, criticizing the delay in transfers from the Treasury to the banks, was already written. According to some reports, Lula said that this “would give the president a scare”. Mucio’s vote concluded that the fiscal maneuvers by former Finance minister Guido Mantega’s team in 2013 and 2014 caused harm to the Fiscal Responsibility Act.
The Lessa Blog adds that the illegal maneuvers have continued unabated throughout 2015, challenging the Fiscal Responsibility Act. In the next weeks, it is expected that TCU formally decides against the maneuvers, opening the door for Rousseff’s impeachment proceedings in Congress.

Os Ratos Já Abandonam o Navio…
The rats are already abandoning ship…

battisti

Dizem que os primeiros a abandonar o navio que afunda são os ratos. O rato da foto, assassino fugitivo italiano Cesare Battisti, refugiado no Brasil com o apoio expresso da organização criminosa com registro político (você sabe, os iguais se atraem e se ajudam), já percebeu que o mar não está para peixe. Com a iminente mudança de governo, uma das primeiras vítimas seria ele, enviado de volta à Itália. O que fazer? Casar-se com uma brasileira, no melhor estilo de criminosos famosos do passado, para garantir sua permanência no fazendão.

They say that when a ship is sinking, the rats are the first ones to abandon the vessel. The rat pictured above, Italian fugitive murderer Cesare Battisti, obtained asylum in Brazil fully supported by the criminal organization disguised as a political party (you know, equals attract and help themselves). Well, Mr. Battisti has already sensed that the tide is about to turn — even before the criminals currently in power. When that happens, he can become one of the first “victims”, being duly deported back to Italy to serve his long time prison sentence. What to do, then? Get married to a Brazilian, in a style set by other famous criminals of the past, to guarantee his residency in this huge farm.
