Meet Jair Bolsonaro. If current polls are any indication of the future, Brazil's next president might be a pro-gun, pro-life, pro-liberty, pro-property rights, pro-free-market firebrand who hopes to lead a counter-revolution against Brazil's powerful communist machine. As in the United States with Donald Trump, the establishment media despises this candidate, and often lies about him. As in the United States with Trump, the Brazilian leader defies the politically correct speech and thought codes promulgated by self-declared elites. And as in the United States, this grassroots uprising is driving the establishment and the left absolutely bonkers. But unlike in the United States, where virtually every poll showed Trump's opponent in the lead, Brazilian polling shows this candidate has more than twice as much public support as his nearest competitor.

Get ready for more globalist “human-rights” propaganda aimed at undermining America, liberty, free markets, and real God-given human rights, courtesy of the dictator-dominated United Nations. The discredited UN “human rights” bureaucracy, infamous for praising dictators and attacking free nations, is under fire worldwide again after UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, a proud Socialist leader, selected a fellow radical Socialist and close ally of mass-murdering communist regimes to serve as UN “High Commissioner for Human Rights.”
Whether the alleged attack on Venezuela’s Marxist strongman Nicolás Maduro on Saturday was a legitimate assassination attempt, Maduro is taking advantage of it and rounding up dissidents.
Nicaragua's totalitarian-minded leftist government, led by Sandinista Daniel Ortega, has responded to a growing uprising against the regime by murdering journalists, brutalizing and slaughtering protesters, and terrorizing the public. According to news reports and human-rights activists, the “former” Marxist mass-murderer is also unleashing savage gangs to dispense violence on his behalf and quash the opposition. Dozens have died already. And unless Ortega decides to relinquish power peacefully, analysts expect the body count to keep rising. The chaos has regional implications, too.
Following Nicolás Maduro’s sham reelection as president of Venezuela, economic conditions continue to worsen and more people are leaving the country to escape its misery.
To no one’s surprise, the Marxist dictator running Venezuela into the ground won a farcical reelection to a third six-year term on Sunday.
The Kellogg’s cereal plant in Maracay, Venezuela, closed Tuesday. A note taped to the fence explained why: “The current economic and social deterioration in the country has now prompted the company to discontinue operations.”
