Fora, Temer! Fica, Temer!…
Out, Temer! Stay, Temer!…

In this video, I talk about recent developments in our tropical House of Cards. Things are getting pretty nasty around here, and everyone seems to be losing their right perspective about what to feel, think or do regarding Michel Temer’s presidency. If you understand Brazilian Portuguese, have fun! 😉

A Farsa Chega ao Fim!…
The Farce Comes to an End!…

This commentary is about the absolutely nasty job performed by Brazil’s electoral court acquitting the Rouseff-Temer ticket of all sorts of violations in the 2014 presidential election. A famous attorney has said that this is the first case she saw of an acquittal caused by an excess of evidence against the defendants.

A Reforma Suja da Previd̻ncia РMeus 2 Centavos
The Dirty Welfare Reform – My 2 Cents

13 views

In this video, I talk about the dirty tricks used by the administration in trying to hurry up approval of a murderous welfare reform. I explain with numbers why there is not a so-called “welfare deficit” and propose that the administration should do its homework before attempting to screw the Brazilian population with a terrible welfare reform.

Momento Pr̩-Greve РMeus 2 Centavos
A Pre-Strike Moment – My 2 Cents

14 views

In this video I talk about the absurdity of a strike orchestrated by a union intimately linked to the criminals of the Workers Party — especially the Master Thief, Lulla da Silva,, trying to disrupt the constitutional (popular or unpopular? It’s another entirely different question) government of Michel Temer. I stress the fact that Temer and his group are not to be trusted by any means, and that everyone must place the Planalto Palace occupants under an electronic microscope 24/7. This is the only way to get out of this political mess Brazil has gotten itself into.

Acorda, Presidente Michel Temer!
Wake Up, President Michel Temer!

61 views

This video-commentary is a very serious wake-up call to president Michel Temer. His administration seems to be on the brink of disaster, and he does not seem to be doing anything whatsoever to save it. He has no new plans, no bold initiatives, no nothing — and still wants to penalize the hard-working population in a crooked welfare reform. People are fed up with what is going on. Nobody wants the return of the criminals from the Workers Party — far from it!!! — but Michel Temer must do something to tend to the needs of the people. The main portion of this commentary was written by journalist Silvana Destro, from Sao Paulo, right after a pathetic exclusive interview given by Michel Temer to a Brazilian TV network (Bandeirantes). Just this afternoon (April 18) Congress was invaded by… police! Officers from all over Brazil came to protest against the welfare reform plans that are being discussed by congressmen. The situation will continue to escalate, unless president Temer decides to engage the public opinion and offer new, sound, sustainable alternatives.

Joao Doria & Michel Temer – My 2 Cents

In this video, I talk about the absurdity of wasting someone like Joao Doria, current mayor of Sao Paulo, as a viable presidential candidate, and also discuss the lack of drive on the part of the current president, Michel Temer — a man incapable of coming with something new, something bold, something that could make him a president to be remembered.

Só a Marcela Sabe…
Only Marcela Knows…

Once again, Michel Temer’s mishaps have generated a funny reaction from the media. This time, based on his “macho-chauvinist” speech regarding the International Women’s Day, a Brasilia-based news site (Metropolis.com) has created an ad where the announcer (a male) does not know any sale prices, “but Marcela (Temer’s wife) knows”. In a very old-fashioned style, she announces the prices in cruzeiros, a currency not used in Brazil since the Sixties. If you understand Brazilian Portuguese and have been following Michel Temer’s latest adventures, you will have a ball with this one. 😉

De Volta ao Presente
Back to the Present

O GLOBO – Monday, May 19, 1997
Hush-Hush Operation
It was enough for president Fernando Henrique Cardoso to give the Transportation and Justice ministries to Eliseu Padilha and Iris Rezende and the PMDB politicians made peace with the government. House of Reps president Michel Temer (PMDB-Sao Paulo), Eliseu Padilha and the PMDB leader in the House, Geddel Vieira Lima (Bahia), closed a deal during the weekend to suppress the scandal about votes being bought during the re-election (amendment) vote.

O Blog do Lessa quer a sua participação! Na foto acima, Alexandre de Morais, indicado pelo presidente Michel Temer para um assento no Supremo Tribunal Federal, pisca de maneira muito suspeita durante a audiência da Comissão de Constituição e Justiça para o senador Edson Lobão, figurinha carimbada, com um pé na cadeia. O que os dois estariam armando?

The Lessa Blog wants your help! The picture above shows Alexandre de Morais, president Michel Temer’s choice for a seat in the Brazilian Supreme Court, blinking very suspiciously during his Senate confirmation hearings to a certified crook, Constitution and Justice Commission’s President Edson Lobão, who’s almost ready to go to jail. What would they be setting up?
