The Rio Olympics Could Be the Next Victim of Brazil’s Corruption Scandal … A massive corruption investigation is reaching into construction deals done for the already troubled Rio 2016 … Two multibillion dollar projects linked to the troubled Rio 2016 Olympic Games have been drawn into Brazil’s ever-growing corruption scandal. -TIME
Brazil is under covert attack from global elites using the US as a regional proxy, and now its upcoming Rio Olympics may be injured as a result.
The results: possibly a reduced Olympics, even one where certain events are delayed or cancelled.
Increasingly, the Olympics are being used to make political points. Russia, for instance, is currently banned from competing in Rio. A November 2015 World Anti Doping Agency (WADA) report that accused Russian sports authorities of institutional cheating generated the suspension.
The region where the massive corruption scheme has been unearthed is the home of the upcoming summer Olympics and also includes a huge Trump project.
However TIME magazine claims there is no evidence so far that the Trump project is part of the corruption.
We’ve already written about the ever-growing Brazilian political and economic scandal HERE. Our conclusion is the scandal is being artificially expanded and elongated.
Without overt and covert US involvement, the scandal would long since have died away – as it seems to touch virtually every major politician on either side of the aisle.
But those investigating the scandal have ties to US intelligence. And the idea is to use the scandal to create a more docile Brazil.
A recent article in NACLA by Jan Knippers Black, Professor at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies in Monterey, California, cited a report by Elizabeth Leeds regarding current US law-enforcement influence:
As reported … 22 Brazilian military and federal police officers underwent military and paramilitary training last March, funded by the U.S. Department of Defense, at the North Carolina headquarters of Academi, infamous formerly as Blackwater. Meanwhile in Brazil, 800 police from nine states received training from the FBI.
Brazil’s political and industrial establishment has been targeted for exercising independence from the US during the country’s long economic boom, which is now over.
Under former president Lula da Silva, Brazil reduced US oil clout. Current president Dilma Rousseff, incensed by NSA spying on intimate conversations of Brazil’s top leaders, began to negotiate with Germany’s Merkel over building a communications system that would be impervious to US interference.
US intelligence interests have obviously fought back. Covert US involvement in the endless Brazilian scandal is part of a larger “cold war” that the US and the Anglosphere generally is fighting with the BRICs – especially Russia and China in addition to Brazil.
