    It is possible this will come to America in the future, sooner than later. Perhaps this year.
    The goverment abuse of funds,increase police brutality, is on the increase here in the USA. Look at the IRS mess. We ponder what is really going on in Washington D.C. and who is behind it.
    The posting is correct, a revolution, a communist revolution, and that is not to say the public doesn’t have grievances but the soviet revolution started in similar manner to this.

      But perhaps this time it wont be communist or socialist. The Brazilian people are tired of big government, and the American people are beginning to realize that big government doesnt work.

      However, Americans will not get on the streets just yet. Americans’ tolerance level is very high, because of all of the brainwashing going on in the country. Next year, 2014 and 2015 will be a different story, hopefully.

    Police Join Protestors During Massive Demonstration in Brazil
    June 19, 2013

    The second video below was shared with me this afternoon. The video is of a local Brazilian, sharing the Truth behind why the people are protesting in the media. All the reasons explained on mainstream media is propaganda. Surprise, surprise.

    I just want to thank everyone for their patience as I process and recoup from my trip to the desert. I’m working on a post with a bunch of photos and some back story to illustrate some of what we experienced out in the Sahara, so it’s taking a bit more time than I had anticipated. I’m finding it very difficult to put into words what you feel in your heart. One thing I will say is that this trip changed me in more ways than I could possibly describe. If even a small dose of what we experienced out there starts bleeding into the rest of humanity…boy oh boy are we all in for a wild ride! To be continued…

    In the meantime let this video be a signpost for where we are headed. I predict much more of this defecting amongst the ranks to be occurring in the days and weeks to come. I don’t know about you all but I smell a wonderful aroma of great change in the air 😉

    Protests like this should be occurring the U.S However, most of America is an entertainment induced coma. For example, the average American spends 28 hours a week watching television… which is the most time watching television per week in the world. The mainstream media also keeps touting a false recovery.

    Median household earning have fallen 4 years in a row.

    47 million Americans are on food stamps, which exceeds Spain’s population of 46.5 million.
    Our constituition is being systematically dismantled.

    Half of college graduates under age 25 are unemployed or underemployed. Also the average college graduate has $28,000 in student loans they have to pay off.

    According to the May BLS report zero manufacturing jobs were added. Most of the jobs added were in the retail,food service, and hospitality industries.

    Most importantly of all, Earth’s climate continues to be desecrated by man. We need to leave a habitable planet for future generations.

    Just a civics lesson for those readers from other countries who are not familiar with the governmental system in the USA:
    Here in the USA each town and county has it’s own locally elected council and mayor, who have term limits as to how long they can “rule”. These councils hire or fire the local policeman, decide the budgets for local roads and parks.They do not make decisions for schools as these have separate locally elected school councils called boards.
    This governmental system of dividing up of decision making responsibilities within a jurisdiction was originally set up in 1789 because the founders of the USA realized that power corrupts and should not be in the hands a few decision making people. So the USA is generally ruled from the bottom up and not the top down as many of these countries with protests are. There are public hearings in cities and counties where citizens go to express their thoughts before a city or county council votes on an issue. Since the council members hope to be reelected, they generally try to listen to the people and meet their needs if the people express their ideas in civil way.These are reasons why the United States is a democracy ruled by the people, FOR the people, and of the people.There is in theory a “balance of power.”
    I am sorry for these people in other countries, like Brazil, who may not have this type of participatory government system established and the only way for them to express an opinion is to march in the streets.Where are Thomas Jefferson,George Washington and Ben Franklin and the other founders of democracy when they are needed?

  9. BRAZILIANS ARE TAKING THEIR POWER BACK

    I am a Brazilian and I can assure that the manifestations are a legitimate expression of DEMOCRACY, as the last drop in a full cup, because the people of Brazil have been waking up for a long time about the real agendas of corrupt politicians.

    This is the “FURY OF THE LAMB”.
    People have been singing a local “anthems”, which say: “People who do not have virtue, end up becoming slaves.”
    Others scream in their marches: ”People united will never be defeated!”

    These manifestations are not chaos like some official media channels are spreading around the world. Chaos is what the government has created for the Brazilian people’s lives.
    What is happening in Brazil, is a result of EVOLUTION of consciousness!
    People have been warning the politicians: “Stop the corruption, or we will stop you”.

    Those in power create laws to benefit themselves only, leaving the people without hope for justice, public health, education, safety and equal opportunity. Government overspending, elections manipulation with plenty of lies and mass control, have driven the people of Brazil to anger as the economic crisis and financial slavery of this false economic grow propaganda has been escalating through the people’s expenses.

    The 2014 Brazil World Cup and the 2016 Olympic Games are the biggest overspending scandal which this succession of greedy governments created for the people of Brazil to pay through very high taxes.

    Politicians condemned to jail due to the “Mensalão” (sharing of public money diversion benefits during Lula governments) are still walking free and now legislating against the judges who try to make justice.
    Hard core criminals have been release back to society to re-offend and criminality keep rising due to justice impunity which benefits those who have economical and financial power influences.

    White collar robbery runs free in the highest levels of government. Never in the history of Brazil had a president become so rich during his mandates, like Lula. And Dilma is just another puppet of the same group which was put in power through the same fraudulent electronic election system (which the votes cannot be re-counted or supervised for legitimacy) She is giving continuation to the political scams which benefit those who keep the corrupt system going. Yes, she should be very worry about her future in power and so should be any group who repeat what has been happening in Brazilian politics for generations.

    Brazil has one of the highest taxes in the world and great social division, where the richer get richer and the poor get poorer and kept mislead with false promises of benefits which the people have to foot the bill themselves in the end.

    Brazil is a country in the verge of big changes and we can see now something which happened at the time the Roman Empire collapsed: The great majority of people are using fraternity and love to promote these protests. This got the support of the soldiers who were sent by the government to stop the protests. The police are finally realizing that they should be at the service of the people and not to keep protecting corrupt politicians who have been destroying the country for so many years.

    People realized that enough is enough; they are taking their power back and telling the politicians who is the boss!
    This is a great example of what people of any country should be doing when they are not happy with the governments they have been served.
    The more important values about Brazilians are not about soccer, g-strings and carnival. Above any of these, Brazil is a land of very creative and resourceful people with a good attitude.

      “WOW!!!” I “love” what you wrote! I wish “we” here in the U.S. could “unite” as the Brazilians “have!!!” It’s “almost” impossible for us to do the same! The “media”, government, politicians, AND “industry”, ARE ALL “…IN-BED, TOGETHER!!!

      Even on the “Internet!” Here, we are divided among so many websites, that there is NO “UNITY” toward a “single-goal!” AND, each and every website, has a problem with the “agenda’s” of someone else’s…website! Therefore, even though “they” may support one-another on a, particular issue, “they” won’t Unite because of “this-or-that!”

      “END RESULT? NO UNITY!!!”

      “NO CHANGE…EXCEPT FOR THE WORSE!!!”

      “GOD BLESS, BRAZIL!!!”
