Bolsonaro surrounds himself with to be the same

one Of his election promises. the Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro prior to his inauguration on 1 January broken. Unfortunately, it was ironically one of his few sensible proposals. Bolsonaro had announced to reduce the number of 29 Federal ministries on "to a maximum of 15". The last few weeks he spent in order to announce the name of his future Minister on Twitter. If you count together all the, you end up with 22.

More than exceeded Bolsonaro has, in turn, his promise to help the Brazilian military new meaning. Among the 22 members of the new Cabinet of seven members of the army, the Vice-President, reserve General Hamilton Mourao, still not counting. Not to mention Bolsonaro himself, is a former paratrooper.

Like in the good old times

The future head of state has often let it be known that he rougher night the "good old days" of the military dictatorship (1964 to 1985). Now he must stand with democratic legitimacy, after all, a government team together, belonging to more servicemen than to dictatorship times. Most of them are 65 and older and know "the good old days" from my own experience.

Apart from a preference for members of the army in key positions such as defence, the protection of the Constitution, the infrastructure, or the sector of energy and mines there are in this Cabinet, three other Trends: old, white, male. But that is nothing New. In Brazil, more women than men and more Blacks than in any other country in the world, with the exception of Nigeria. But as the difference was at the end of President Michel Temer in front of two and a half years of his Cabinet, were not a dark-skinned politician and not a woman. Bolsonaro appoints at least two women in the Ministerial rank.

One of them is Tereza Cristina (64), which will be for agriculture. She has filed her aptitude test for the Post of leader of the extremely influential agricultural lobby in the Parliament. This so-called "bancada ruralista" occurs primarily in favour of more flexible laws for "controlled deforestation" in the Amazon rain forest. Tereza Cristina in the Parliament also the nickname of "Muse of the Gifts" purchased because of their enthusiastic support of pesticides in the agriculture industry All of this is had in the sense Bolsonaros that holds the protection of the environment for a troublesome ideology and announced that under his command "not an inch" more for the protection of Indigenous areas approved.

Such topics as the second woman in the Cabinet, the Evangelical priest Damares Alves (54) to fall in the future into the resort. It is for "women, family, and human rights". Your most important human rights topics: the fight against the so-called "Gender ideology" and a "Brazil without abortion". The control of the Indigenous Agency Funai for the constitutional protection of the descendants of the native Americans responsible, was transferred to her on the grounds that they have adopted an indigenous girl.

Ardent Trump Fan

On the journey through Bolsonaros chamber of horrors you will encounter also: a former astronaut who receives because of his experience in space, the Ministry of research and science, as well as a Minister of education who was born in Colombia and in the Brazilian military coup of 1964, a "reason to celebrate" because the country was liberated from communism.

the Ministry of The environment was originally intended to be in the part of the government reduction to the ministries of Agriculture and of the "Muse of the Gifts". Due to protests from all over the world environment remains the country with the largest rain forest in the world now but Minister. The award of attorney Ricardo Salles, has just been sentenced in first instance for abuse of office as a former environment Secretary of São Paulo. Salles is also one of the founders of the ultra-right movement "Endireita Brasil".

When looking at the civilians in the Cabinet, the question is whether the generals will not make the harmless part of the round. Foreign Minister Ernesto Araújo (51), in order to liberate Brazil and the world of the "ideology of globalism". He is an ardent Fan of Donald trump and an equally staunch opponent of climate protection, which he considers to be a "Marxist ideology". So, the future chief diplomat of a country that has a key role in trying to play think, to limit global warming to two degrees.

in Spite of everything, the majority of Brazilians look with great optimism to the new government. This is mainly due to the fact that Bolsonaro has managed to sell this majority, he was the only politician in the country who never had anything to do with corruption. More likely is that he was in the past 28 years as a backbencher simply influential enough to be in the major facilitation networks involved.

"Suspicious transactions"

It is growing but circumstantial evidence that Bolsonaro Clan involved according to his possibilities to the usual nepotism, financial tricks, and the politics of the black funds. Finally, the financial supervision of "suspicious transactions was" in the millions, which were moved from an account of a former bodyguard of the eldest son of the President, the Senator Flavio Bolsonaro, – including an account of the future First Lady: Michelle Bolsonaro.

In right-wing populist filter the Mar of Bolsonaro, the last of the Upright will be bubbles, continue to be told. For the protection of this Embassy, the most famous man in the Cabinet is apparently responsible, the Minister of justice Sergio Moro (46). The judge of the anti-corruption campaign, "Operation Lava Jato" has brought in a highly controversial procedure, the former head of state Lula da Silva is behind bars – and thus the way for an electoral victory Bolsonaros in the first place. The accusation that it was a political judgment, has not invalidated Moro necessarily by the government Bolsonaro joining now. Especially since he had previously claimed, "to never in politics". Now he justified his change of heart so that he wanted to lead the anti-corruption fight by the highest authority.

If Moro takes his thing seriously, the question is, how long will it take until he has to deal with his superiors, or his colleagues in the Cabinet. According to reports in the media have or have had at least 9 of the 22 Ministers "problems with the Brazilian judiciary". One of the most famous cases of the Onyx Lorenzoni (64), the right Hand of the President. In the future, the office Manager called and a witness, the "Operation Lava Jato" as a recipient of illegal campaign contributions. Lorenzoni has acknowledged his wrongdoing already in the public. On his Arm he had a tattoo of a Bible verse: "And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."
