STF x Lula – O Dia Seguinte
Brazilian Supreme Court x Lula – The Day After

Quais as perscpectivas (e piadas) que brotam a partir da decisão do STF de permitir a prisão do canalha cachaceiro de Atibaia? É o que mostra o vídeo.

What are the perspectives (and jokes) that have come up since the Brazilian Supreme Court decision to allow former president Lula’s arrest? That’s what this video shows. Good for practicing your Brazilian Portuguese language skills!


STF _ Momento Decisivo
Brazilian Supreme COurt – A Decisive Moment

In this video, I talk about how tragic it will be if the Brazilian Supreme Court justices decide to grant a preventive habeas corpus to Lula, the greatest thief Brazil (and certainly a good portion of the Western civilization) has ever known, besides reminding everyone that Brazil is running towards becoming a new Venezuela.


A Picaretagem no STF
The Supreme Court Sham

At the Brazilian Supreme Court, justices resort to a very immoral scheme known as a “request for examination” of the paperwork related to a suit, any suit. Instead of returning the paperwork promptly and proceeding with trial, they sit on it for months, even years, causing heavy losses to the parties in dispute. In the case of people (usually high authorities) being prosecuted, the crimes prescribe and they are set free.


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.”

Send one e-mail message to him, too —


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.

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


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.


Alexandre de Morais – Meus 2 Centavos
Alexandre de Morais – My 2 Cents

In this video, I address the issue of Alexandre de Morais not having the necessary moral standings to fill the seat at the Brazilian Supreme Court. I explain that in 2000, he wrote a lengthy thesis in which he clearly stated that no person working for the Executive Branch should accept a nomination for the Supreme Court because that would be construed as a form of thanking/compensating the nominee, or even having that nominee to act as a shield for the president or other members of the Executive branch if legal issues came up. That written declaration of principles was blatantly ignored by an opportunist Alexandre de Morais, who readily accepted the nomination. A very bad, a very sad start. I finish my comments saying that it’s because of scum like Alexandre de Morais and others that Brazil is still a place that has to get a lot better to be considered just bad.

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?
