Bandido? Sim! Frouxo? Não!
Gangster? Yes! Coward? No!

Na verdade, o Blog do Lessa não acredita nessa versão acima, publicada na coluna do coleguinha Ilimar Franco, em O Globo, e vê a decisão do Brahma, o Barba X9, mais como sendo de auto-afirmação num momento de grande dificuldade. O senador Caiado chamou o cachaceiro de “bandido frouxo”. Bandido? Claro que ele é! Agora… de “frouxo”, ele não aceita ser chamado! Profundamente irritado por ter sido, mais uma vez, desnudado, o Brahma se encheu de brios e partiu para a luta judicial. Hmmm… e “brio” não é marca de cachaça.

Actually, The Lessa Blog does not believe in the version* published above (Ilimar Franco’s column on O GLobo newspaper). This blog sees Brahma’s decision to go to court against senator Caiado as as attempt to show strength in the midst of great personal difficulty. Senator Caiado called the drunkard a “coward gangster”. Gangster? Of course he is! Now… a “coward”, that’s unacceptable! Very upset for having been, once again, shown as he really is, Brahma (Brazil’s number one gangster) filled himself with (fake) pride and decided to go to court. Hmmm… and no, “pride” is not another brand of cachaça.

*The motive — Congressmen were asking themselves why former president Lula went to court against senator Ronaldo Caiado. The fact in dispute happened five months ago. They say that the reason was sen. Caiado having publicized in the social media a Lula’s false request for a habeas corpus, fearing his arrest in the Car Wash operation.

Fim de Festa?
End of the party?

mtst

A foto registra um recente encontro do Barba X9 — o Brahma — com os fora-da-lei do MTST. Como se vê, a falta de entusiasmo do Brahma é visível (será que ele estaria com medo de a polícia chegar e prendê-lo?), ou então vai ver que ele estava mesmo era bêbado e nem se lembra de terem tirado essa foto dele, como de costume…

This is a picture of a recent meeting of Lula da Silva (a.k.a. “Beard”, “X9” or “Brahma”) with the MTST* outlaws. As anyone can see, Brahma’s enthusiasm is sorely missing (was he afraid of the police coming to arrest him?) or he was indeed really drunk and can’t even remember this picture was taken…
*MTST is the outlawed — but tolerated by the criminal gang currently ruling Brazil — Workers Without a Roof Movement.

É apenas um caso de polícia
It’s just a police case

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.
(Headline under the O Globo photo: “It is necessary to face Car Wash politically, says Lula”)

Pobre Joaquim Levy…
Poor Joaquim Levy…

Vamos retomar os trabalhos no Blog do Lessa com música. Esse vídeo-galhofa sobre as trapalhadas de Joaquim Levy só é menos engraçado do que as trapalhadas que ele mesmo protagoniza, tentando ajudar o desgoverno petralha de Devassa Rousseff, a amiguinha do Brahma.

We resume our work at the Lessa Blog with music. This screwy video about Joaquim Levy’s screw-ups is only less funny than Levy’s  screw-ups themselves, while trying to help Dilma “Devassa” Rousseff’s un-government. As you know, Devassa is Brahma’s closest friend…
