With a new administration in Washington it will be a challenge to get the 'liberals' to hold Biden-Harris to the few 'progressive promises' they made during their campaign. Biden is bringing back many of Bush & Obama's neo-cons to head his foreign policy. I'll be on this case without hesitation.

Fascism gets elected in Brazil

Brazil has just elected Jair Bolsonaro, a fascist for president!

While on my trip to Moscow I attended a conference last weekend.  There were three activists from Brazil who spoke in fearful terms about the likely (at that moment) election of Bolsonaro for president.

Steve Bannon who helped Trump get elected was instrumental in Bolsonaro's campaign.  Bannon pledges to go international with this movement to elect far-right candidates.

Brazilians are urging an international solidarity campaign with the beleaguered masses in their country.

A key reason the US oligarchies supported Balsonaro is that he will help roll-back efforts by China and Russia to counter reactionary corporate control of Central and South America.
