    The Global Far Right Is Betting the House on Bolsonaro

    Far-right organizations like Project Veritas in the US and the Vox party in Spain are increasingly looking to Latin America as the key to consolidating their international network. To prevent that from happening, Jair Bolsonaro must be stopped from winning — or stealing — Brazil's 2022 election.

    [Image description: Brazilian president Jair Bolsonaro speaks at Planalto Palace in Brasília on October 7, 2021.]

    From Donald Trump to Vox’s Santiago Abascal, the international far right is uniting around what, according to Steve Bannon, will be a top priority in 2022: getting Jair Bolsonaro reelected as president of Brazil.

    For the Left as well, the 2022 Brazilian election is building up to be a contest that could deliver a crucial blow to an increasingly well-organized far-right network.

    Jair Boslonaro’s son Eduardo Bolsonaro was also present at the Conference on Conservative Political Action in Brazil. There, Eduardo defended Project Veritas ( a right-wing organization that claims to expose plots and crimes committed by liberals and leftists and attacks journalists, political groups, and social movements, and has ties to anti-labor groups) and spoke of the need to create a Brazilian version that would similarly monitor journalists and expose political bias in the media. In addition to Eduardo, Matthew Tyrmand (a Steve Bannon protégé) also met with Jair Bolsonaro and his son Senator Flávio Bolsonaro at the official Brazilian presidential residence.

    While Tyrmand, former Trump spokesman Jason Miller, and other Bannon proteges were working behind the scenes, Bannon himself spoke openly about the significance of Bolsonaro’s campaign for the international far right:

    “Jair Bolsonaro will face the most dangerous leftist in the world, Lula, a criminal and communist supported by all the media here in the United States. . . . This election is the second most important in the world and the most important of all time in South America. Bolsonaro will win, unless [it] is stolen.”

    As the Zetkin Collective writes in Jacobin América Latina, Vox has established contact with prominent right-wing politicians in nearly every part of Latin America, hoping to extend its sphere of “Ibero influence” across the region and oppose left-wing governments in Latin America.

    House of Leaves

    Ostensibly, House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski, is about a young man who finds a manuscript in a dead man’s apartment. This experimental novel, released in 2000, takes a cinematic approach to the novel – creating a novel experience in time and space.

    The dead man, Zampano, was an elderly blind man writing an academic critique of The Navidson Record; a documentary about a family moving into a home in Virginia, which happens to be bigger on the inside. At the center of Danielewski’s work is the question, “What is real?”

    How do humans interact with the space they inhabit? How do they interact with the stories around them?

    Featuring: Zenya Prowell, Stacy Patterson, Lisa Schweitzer, and Jen Bravo

    The Left Is Evil -- And Liberals Keep Voting for Them

    COLUMNIST

    Dennis Prager

    As I have noted repeatedly, liberalism and leftism have virtually nothing in common. In fact, leftism is the enemy of liberalism — as a handful of liberals such as former New York Times writer Bari Weiss, former Young Turk Dave Rubin and others have come to recognize.

    The Left has never believed in free speech and has suppressed dissent wherever it has assumed power. Free speech is a pillar of liberalism, and it has always embraced dissent.

    The Left rejects the anti-racist ideal of colorblindness. Colorblind is the liberal racial ideal.

    The Left supports racial segregation — such as all-black dorms and separate black graduations. Liberals have always advocated racial integration.

    The Left has always loathed capitalism. Liberals were always major advocates of capitalism — recognizing that only capitalism has lifted billions of people out of poverty.

    The Left has always been anti-Israel. Liberals have always been fervent supporters of Israel.

    The Left has always held America in contempt. Liberals loved this country. A liberal wrote "God Bless America." No leftist would write such a song.

    Leftists want to defund the police. No liberal does.

    The list of liberal-Left differences is as long as the list of left-wing positions.

    Yet, it is liberals who keep the Left in power. Were it not for the liberal vote, the Left would have no power.

    Why do liberals vote Left? Why do liberals vote for those who have contempt for virtually everything they, the liberals, hold dear?

    The question is all the more apt given that it is conservatives who protect virtually every liberal value. It is conservatives who seek to preserve free speech, racial integration, love of America, a strong Israel and capitalism.

    So why do liberals vote for the Left, for the very people who hold liberals and their values in contempt?

    There are two primary reasons.

    One is brainwashing. Liberals are brainwashed from childhood into believing that the right is their enemy and that "pas d'ennemis a gauche" (there are "no enemies on the left"). That is why there is no left-wing position, no matter how destructive or vile, that could move a liberal to vote Republican or identify with conservatives.

    The second reason is fear. Liberals fear they will lose friends and even family if they do not vote Democrat or if they publicly criticize the Left. And this is not an irrational fear.

    America and the West are being destroyed by the Left. But this destruction of the universities, the high schools, art and music, journalism and freedom itself could not take place were it not for liberals.

    The fate of America and the West lies largely in the hands of liberals. There are simply not enough leftists to destroy our most revered institutions. They need liberals to serve as fellow travelers to accomplish their ends.

    Should the American experiment fail, and it may, that profile in lack of courage, the liberal, will have made it possible.

    Restart And The Revolution Marking The End of Fossil Fuel Monopolies

    New Post has been published on https://restartenergy.co/restart-and-the-revolution-marking-the-end-of-fossil-fuel-monopolies/

    Restart And The Revolution Marking The End of Fossil Fuel Monopolies
    Global warming, air pollution and diminishing natural resources are reasons why shifting to renewable energy is more urgent than ever. The share of renewable energy is 24% of global power generation and is a clear sign that the transformation in the energy sector has begun. Restart’s model would democratize the industry and give the power back to consumers.

    MY LAST WORDS ABOUT THE FREO ELECTION

    MY LAST WORDS ABOUT THE FREO ELECTION

    To all those candidates who were not successful at last week’s Fremantle Local Government Election. It’s not as bad as it was for me! I got beheaded when I stood for Council, but according to my critics I was brain dead well before I lost my head. 😇 Life goes on. Armageddon has not eventuated since Hannah became Mayor, and the weekend will be beautiful. Roel Loopers Sculpture is by J Shed…

    Shareholder Democracy Is Getting Bigger Trial Runs

    Shareholder Democracy Is Getting Bigger Trial Runs

    Well, that’s beginning to change. Several intriguing experiments are underway. One of the most interesting is a collaboration between an activist hedge fund, Engine No. 1, and the asset management platform Betterment, demonstrating that it’s easy to ask index fund investors what corporate battles they believe are most worth waging. The hedge fund in June started a new exchange-traded fund,…
