New Brazilian President Threatens To Uproot Amazon Rainforest & Its Inhabitants

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    New Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro's agenda is to put the Amazon Rainforest lands on the auction block for logging, mining, and agro-businesses, and forcing the indigenous population to assimilate into Brazilian society.

  • Reflect On:

    Are we truly better off fighting against such inhumane policies, or should we endeavor to collectively rise above them? If so, what does that look like to truly do?

Brazil’s recently elected president, Jair Bolsonaro, is often referred to as Brazil’s Donald Trump because he represents what many consider to be the far-right ideologies of nationalism, corporatism, and indifference toward the environment, culture and the poor. The reason he was able to get elected president is summarized by this Business Insider article:

Rampant corruption, an ongoing recession, and rising rates of violent crime have contributed to some Brazilians embracing Bolsonaro and his hardline stances on an array of issues. Much like Trump in the US, Bolsonaro has painted a picture of Brazil as a nation in decline. He has pledged to make the largest and most powerful country in South America “great” again by ridding its politics of corruption.

Amazon Rainforest In Danger

But whatever boon to the nation Bolsonaro might bring to the citizens of Brazil, it will surely come at a cost. In keeping with the idea that there is no money to be made through the support of indigenous cultures continuing to live within their traditional environments, Bolsonaro’s vision is to move Brazil further towards a prototypical Western Capitalistic society. That implies harvesting the money-making potential of the Amazon Rainforest which could lead to its destruction. As this New York Times article mentions,

He has dismissed the idea of setting aside forest land for native Brazilians who have lived in the Amazon for centuries, promising that “there won’t be a square centimeter demarcated as an indigenous reserve” under his leadership. Recent studies show that forest reserves controlled by native people in many countries provide some of the best defenses against deforestation. Mr. Bolsonaro sees other uses of the forest, though. “Where there is indigenous land,” he has said, “there is wealth underneath it.”

Further details that show he is serious are noted in the Return To Now article:

Since his election on October 28, he’s announced a merging of the ministries of agriculture and the environment — the latter of which was supposed regulate the former — into a new “super ministry” to oversee his plan. The new ministry will be headed by politicians from the “beef caucus,” a group of lawmakers who have historically opposed indigenous land conservation, supported agricultural expansion, and attempted to relax slave labor laws.

Bolsonaro has been quoted as saying that ‘minorities will have to adapt …or simply disappear.’ This is not so much different in fervor to the genocidal agenda of Western Colonial powers in concert with the Roman Catholic Church spoken about in recent articles (see: ‘Facebook Censors A Video Detailing The True Story Of Christopher Colombus‘, ‘‘Black Jesus’ Story Stunningly Corroborated In An Obscure Nexus Magazine Article‘, ‘Aboriginal Residential School Survivor Says The Queen of England Abducted Children In Canada‘).

Existential Battle

Naturally, there is resistance from environmental groups and the indigenous tribes themselves who are fighting the good fight for their own survival, as well as for the survival of the Rainforest, which in some people’s mind is essential for the health of the planetary ecosystem itself. But before the rest of us start picking sides and strengthening the polarity, let’s collectively step back and take a larger view. From a deeper perspective, it becomes possible to see that this fight has been playing out over and over again throughout the history of the Western world, and if we spend our energy simply choosing one side and condemning the other we will only perpetuate it.

We need to take heed of Albert Einstein’s famous words, “No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.” The very fact that this politician has now been given the power to threaten the Amazon Rainforest and the indigenous inhabitants within it means that we are still participating in a process of giving our power away to radical and extreme individuals to act on our behalf.

Let’s be clear–the political systems of virtually all the world’s countries now are rigged. Far from being representative democracies, both sides of the political spectrum are ultimately controlled by the powerful elite for their agenda to enslave humanity. In the case of Brazil, while the previous left-leaning ruling party may have been in favor of the preservation of the Rainforest and its inhabitants, it was caught up in corruption scandals through the influence of the global elite. Whether these scandals are real or fabricated doesn’t really matter. The end result is that it caused the population to swing over to an anti-corruption right-wing agenda, one that is more directly in accord with the wishes of the global elite.

We Need A Critical Mass

When a critical mass of people awaken to the fact that all of our global politics are designed to serve the global elite, and always have, and in our minds we withdraw our consent to be ruled by such a system, then we will have the power to walk away from it, and create something new. Imagine a meritocratic system, for example, where the wisest, most humane people naturally rise to positions of leadership in each country, and have the best interests of the citizens at heart. There are many, many such people–however portions of our our critical mass still spend time supporting and believing in extremists, to the extent that moderate, wise and loving people still don’t have the means or the opportunity to rise into positions of power.

Once we get a critical mass of people to step away from the current system, and recognize it is not ‘our’ system, and gather together in support of something new, only then will we stop having to choose–and fight–between things like economic prosperity and the preservation of our natural ecosystem. We will come to realize that the best of left and right ideals are not at opposite ends of the spectrum, but actually go hand in hand.

The Takeaway

Victor Hugo said the ‘Nothing is as powerful as an idea whose time has come’. The Awakening Community is slowly starting to rise above the polarity of our politics, and see that it is simply a ‘false choice’ meant to keep us divided against each other and further the program of our enslavement. Much as it is easy to criticize Jair Bolsonaro for his radical policies against natural preservation and the indigenous population, we are better off getting past that and getting clear that it is the entire political system that is at fault here, and what is needed is to have more and more people recognize where the solutions lie so that it no longer becomes desirable–or possible–to put extremists in positions of power.

An uncovered Australian report performed by their Department of Defence. “Scientific Intelligence — General — Unidentified Flying Objects” is trending again. Those who have done extensive research on UFOs will find the Australian version of disclosure to be far more intellectually honest than the American version. Albeit it was conducted decades ago.

According to ex-US intelligence official Luis Elizondo, the Defense Department’s Inspector General is presently conducting three reviews. The inquiries vary from the Department of Defense’s handling of UFO claims to Elizondo’s alleged whistleblower retribution. The open IG cases are crucial to Australia’s report because they establish beyond a shadow of a doubt that the US Department of Defense is being dishonest and shady when it comes to the UFO subject. For decades, Australia has been a loyal friend of the United States. Within Australia’s boundaries, they share a military installation (Pine Gap). When a close defense ally’s intelligence agencies determined that the US was not being intellectually honest in its approach, perhaps it is reasonable to conclude that there is more to the tale than the 144 incidents studied since 2004 by the UAPTF.

The CIA became alarmed at the overloading of military communications during the mass sightings of 1952 and considered the possibility that the USSR may take advantage of such a situation.

Australian UFO study.

According to the summary, OSI, acting through the Robertson-Panel, encouraged the USAF to use Project Blue Book to publicly “debunk” UFOs. In a tragic twist of fate, when Australian authorities sought explanations from the US Air Force, the allegation was debunked. The authors of the study were depicted as conspiratorial and even crazy by the US Air Force. Ross Coulthart reported this, and it may be heard in a recent Project Unity interview. Courthart is an award-winning investigative journalist who is drawn to forbidden subjects. He also stated on the same podcast that a senior US Navy official identified as Nat Kobitz told him that the US had been in the midst of reverse-engineering numerous non-human craft. According to his obituary, Mr. Kobitz was a former Director of Research and Development at Naval Sea Systems Command.

The US recently released its highly anticipated Pentagon UAP report, but it wasn’t much more than a 9 page rundown of what has been known for decades. Regardless, for many, what was promising was that the UFO subject was being taken seriously again – and perhaps many more scientists might get involved.

For decades many have been warning about leaving UFO disclosure in the hands of a government that likes to use crisis’ or current events to expand its defense budgets. Further, why would we suddenly expect a government, who has been lying about this subject for 70 years, to suddenly come forth with the truth? What would inspire them to suddenly change their mind?

Perhaps it’s because the search for ET is an idea who’s time has truly come. We’ve reporting on this for over 13 years, and are mongst a community of researchers who have been encouraging humanity to look at the evidence for more than 70 years. It feels like an idea that human collective consciousness is more than ready to explore.

The impact the ET question has on our individual and collective worldview has the power to truly change the way we view ourselves and the meaning of life here on earth. Think of the implications answers to this question could have on how we set up and run our society as well. Technology, culture, collaboration etc – I spoke about this more in great detail in my extended interview for Greer’s. prior film Close Encounters of The Fifth Kind here.

Now, a new documentary from Dr. Steven Greer, directed by my good friend Michael Mazzola, seeks to explore what the films calls “the current government and media disinformation campaign promoting 3 big lies:”

1. We do not know what these UAPs/ UFOs are. WE DO.
2. Humans cannot make craft that can maneuver like UFOs. WE CAN and WE DO.
3. The UFOs are a threat. THEY ARE NOT.

Bold statements. Watch the film below and see what resonates most with you.
