This is too disturbing to contemplate …

This is too disturbing to contemplate: here we have a rider to a bill funding the Department of Homeland Security. This rider has been proposed by an Ohio congressman and has gone nowhere for six years. It forces Brazil, which does NOT now have an extradition treaty with the US, to let the US extradite Brazilians who have ‘committed crimes’ against the United States. Suddenly it is moving and is in committee. One bill actually defunds visas for Brazilians, unless the Brazilian government agrees to extradite ‘criminals.’

Does the US have a problem with Brazilian ‘criminals’ in general? I would say not. I was with Oxford International Relations dons earlier and asked them about this — why would the US suddenly need to force Brazil to extradite people who have committed ‘crimes’ against it? I fear even writing down their first response. But it is a chilling, chilling piece of proposed legislation. I leave it to you to analyze.

  1. This could be retaliation for Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff’s canceling her trip to the U.S. in Sept. 2013. She was outraged over the U.S. hacking into her email. There are oil deposits off of the Brazilian coast. See the new book by Beatrice Edwards.

    Dear Naomi, as a Libertarian, an Australian, and a human being, I was inspired by your talk at the Liberty Forum and have recommended the video to dozens of my friends. The rise of the corporate state throughout the western world is a frightening reality, and is happening for a reason, demonstrably connected to the United Nations and its Agenda, which you may, in the future, like to consider.
    In many areas the UN does such good work, and I wish it wasn’t true, but it is…
