François Guizot Já Dizia…
François Guizot Used to Say It…

“When politics penetrate in the Courts’ chambers, Justice leaves through some door.” (François Pierre Guillaume Guizot, 1787-1874)
“Countries whose constitutions allow politicians to hold special court privileges, while the same politicians are the ones who appoint judges for those same courts, are pigsties, madhouses legalizes as nations.” (Jose Marcio Castro Alves)


A Sacada de Percy Castanho, Jr.
Percy Castanho, Jr.’s Take

Enviei hoje o seguinte e-mail ao ministro Gilmar Mendes:

“Parabéns, Ministro.
Vossa Excelência está conseguindo nivelar a credibilidade da Justiça à credibilidade dos políticos…
Suas referências a Curitiba e a não se curvar diante dos “meninos” da Procuradoria durante o julgamento do HC de Dirceu não escondem seus sentimentos e mostram claramente que interpretações da lei podem ser feitas usando outras partes do corpo que não o cérebro…
Percy Castanho Jr.”

Envie você também um e-mail para ele –

Today, I have sent the following e-mail message to Justice Gilmar Mendes:

“Congratulations, Justice Mendes.
Your Excellency is succeeding in reducing the Judiciary’s credibility to the politicians’ credibility…
Your speech regarding Curitiba and not submitting to the “boys” of the prosecutor’s office during Jose Dirceu’s habeas corpus trial do not hide your feelings. It clearly shows that interpretations of the law can be obtained through the use of body parts other than the brain…
Percy Castanho, Jr.”

Na Imprensa e nas Mídias Sociais
On the Press and Social Media

This is just an example of the reaction on social media regarding recent criminal actions taken by the Brazilian “supreme court”.


Proteção Garantida…
Guaranteed Protection…

The dog in the pictures is one of the Brazilian “supreme court” justices, who has just freed these two criminals. In Mr. Eike Batista’s case, it was even worse, because the justice’s wife works for the attorneys who represent Mr. (Eike) Batista. The “supreme court” justice had an obligation, by law, to declare himself completely unable to offer any judgement on that case. Mr. Jose Dirceu’s case is a shame. Convicted of several crimes in a 32-year sentence, he now can walk free again and continue to act criminally while the Car Wash investigation starts to go down the drain.

A Horripilante Lista Fechada
The Horrifying Closed List


This is a skit on the so-called “closed list”, a new dirty trick being proposed by Brazil’s corrupt politicians to perpetuate themselves in power. The waiter informs the client at the restaurant that they no longer have a menu. The client chooses a restaurant, but the food is supplied by the owner regardless of the client’s taste. Linking it or not, the client has to pay for the food. And it doesn’t matter if the person gives up eating at a restaurant and now wants to eat at home — he/she will have to keep paying a fee to support the restaurants. It is a similar situation to what happens nowadays in Brazil’s politics.
