6/ I'm sure Marina hates PT as much as ever. But today, she came out an endorsed PT's candidate, , on the ground that Bolsonaro is a direct, immediate threat to Brazilian democracy & the hatred he spreads violates her Christian conscience

5/ When I interviewed her last month, I was blown away by how much rage she still harbored for PT, Dilma & Lula over what they did to her in 2014. It was palpable and toxic and, to be honest, threatened to drown what made her so inspiring & uplifting.

4/ She ran again in 2014. Polls showed her close to beating Dilma. So PT ran a massive, aggressive campaign against her, harming her reputation. She finished 3rd again. Filled with rage against PT, she ended up endorsing Dilma's right-wing opponent, & he almost won because of it.

3/ She left the Worker's Party in protest over various policies & ran for President in 2010 as the Green Party candidate. An evangelical convert with conservative social views, she was never a perfect ideological fit, but shocked everyone by coming in 3rd with 19% of the vote.

2/ After learning to read and write at 16, she went on to college, then became a professor of psychoanalysis. A strident environmentalist, she was the youngest woman elected to the Brazilian Senate, at age 36, and became Lula's Minister of the Environment.

1/ is one of the most remarkable political stories anywhere in the world. A black Brazilian woman who grew up in a tiny, poor state near the Amazon, she was one of 11 children, and was illiterate until the age of 16, when she was orphaned & move to a convent.

I missed the part where Trump said before being elected that Democrats - generally, not Hillary - should either prepare to leave the country or be imprisoned. I missed where Trump said he favors torturing domestic dissidents & would "cleanse" the country of leftists.

To summarize: * Pointing out that Bolsonaro supports torture: BARRED * Calling Haddad a pedophie: PERMITTED.

"Now on MSNBC: to learn more about what's happening in the Middle East, we turn now to our guest David Rothkopf, a registered paid foreign agent of the UAE regime": the reason why media outlets don't disclose things like this is because it exposes how corrupt their practices are:

No: I think Dem turnout in the election is going to be massive across the country - due to intense feelings about Trump & typical mid-term success for out-of-power parties - and fully expect them to do very well in state elections, too. None of that will fix its fundamental flaws

Parties out of the WH typically do very well in mid-term elections and, especially given the heightened intensity over Trump, I fully expect the Dems to take over the House - and then use that to conceal their fundamental flaws and keep collapsing as a national political party.

This headline from captures the key truth about the dark political turn in Brazil, a point I've been repeating for months. Bolsonaro is *not* "Brazil's Trump," as western media has often said. He's "Brazil Duterte" (I'd add: "and Sisi'"). That's a huge difference:

Dear NYT Editors: the next time you want to pompously opine about a country you know nothing about, talk to reporters based in the country, such as , who wrote this in the today. Bolsonaro's advocated domestic mass murder before

The odious practice of what I call opinion laundering -- journalists giving platforms to people who are being paid to take positions, with zero disclosure -- continues relentlessly. has been on the case for years, and here's his latest:

As a reminder: the discussion began when you and other ex-Obama officials tried to whitewash your own administration's history of constantly serving, protecting, arming and aiding the Saudis. You don't get to pronounce the topic irrelevant when others point out how false that is.
