Careful with Portugalonline. This article is full of half truths, which turns it into a very distorted and dangerous piece.

I don't know what is Maria's reason for almost denying a fact regarding Portugal, but after reading the article at I noticed that an important part of the country's perversion, sickness and core corruption is missing: Spain.
If you would look deep into history, sooner than later you will find out that almost all of what Portugal is now was pass on by Spain. I would go even further and declare that very possibly there is no other country in Europe as corrupted than Espa˝a. There is a whole lot to say or write on this subject but I will leave it here for now...

"...and the truth shall set you free"


"If Gerry and Kate Mc Cann were Portuguese they would have been savagely tortured, falsely charged with murdering their daughter, and condemned to a long prison termů"



The author of the above quotation is a native Portuguese man --Joao Cipriano-- who is currently serving a draconian prison term in Portugal following a forced conviction for the supposed murder of a child whose body was never found. Mr. Cipriano has always maintained his innocence of the crime for which he was convicted, and has very courageously exposed publicly the torture and other extra judicial practices by the Portuguese police on detainees to force confessions on them. Mr. Cipriano and his sister Leonor were forced by means of torture into accepting lies made up by the Portuguese police, regarding the abduction and disappearance of Leonor's daughter, Joanna, who went missing in 2004 and has not been found every since. The abduction and disappearance of the child took place less than 40 miles from Praia da Luz, which is where Madeleine Mc Cann was abducted and disappeared on the night of May 3, 2007. Like in the Mc Cann case, they were made "arguidos" [suspects] by the Portuguese police who used similar tactics to the type they are using now against Gerry and Kate Mc Cann, by accusing them of hiding the dead body of their daughter without having any solid evidence against them. Mr. Cipriano has warned on the possibility that Gerry and Kate Mc Cann could be framed by the Portuguese police. He is a native Portuguese and knows what he says. Meanwhile, Leonor Cipriano recalled how she was beaten and thrown down a staircase by police officers, and then forced to kneel on broken glass until she bled and admitted the false police accusations just to avoid more torture. It was based on these and other criminal extra judicial practices that Joao and Leonor Cipriano were convicted of a crime they did not commit. The real case was not resolved since the disappeared child the Portuguese police accused the defendants of murdering was never found, in other words, there was no real evidence against the accused but they were condemned for a crime that did not exist. Mr. Cipriano said that Joanna was abducted and "sold" to a paedophile international organisation with presence in Portugal.



To the average Briton, the above-described Portuguese criminal and destructive behaviour may seem far-fetched but it is true and shows how the Portuguese idiosyncrasy is manifested. Spanish and Portuguese idiosyncrasies and "cultures" are very similar and are expressed in almost identical ways. Spain is a country where detainees are tortured and even murdered at police and civil guard stations. This is well documented. Brutality, chicanery, machismo, corruption, thieving, lying, racism, chauvinism and more, are among the traits that make up the Spanish "culture" and idiosyncrasy. All of these elements combined and mixed with a backward judicial power system used against vulnerable citizens, creates a deadly evil force with an unlimited potential to perpetrate gross injustices against innocent victims. This is part of what the Mc Canns are up against and like most Britons, they are probably not aware of what is lurking behind the laughable but dangerous accusations the Portuguese police are deliberately making against them.



The Portuguese know exactly why they are purposely avoiding by not dealing with the true reality of Madeleine's case. They know Gerry and Kate Mc Cann are not guilty of any crime but by keeping the "arguido" status lodged on them, are conveniently helping to prevent a bad image of Portugal from developing and becoming widespread among Britons and other Europeans, who generate millions in profits as vacation goers or retirees living in Portugal who collect monthly pensions. Portugal is a poor country by European standards needing the revenue produced by tourism from Northern Europeans in search of sunny beaches and warm weather. Considering these facts, one can not imagine the Portuguese jeopardising their economic and political interests, over the abduction of just one more child in their sunny paradise where pederast, paedophiles, predators, and other disgusting freaks freely hang around looking for potential victims. This truth the Portuguese will never admit and to cover the facts, they create nonsense and false accusations against victims of heinous crimes and put an official stamp on it to legitimise their criminal intend.



According to information available on different Internet media sources, Kate Mc Cann came very close to be framed and jailed during police interrogations after her daughter Madeleine vanished. The interrogators offered her a two year prison term if she accepted the nonsensical official version and confessed having killed her daughter and then hid the body. This fact corroborate any statements made regarding the true reasons the Portuguese have by falsely accusing Gerry and Kate Mc Cann of hiding her body, a lee to justify keeping the so-called "arguido" criminal status lodged on them. In reality, the Portuguese don't want Madeleine to be found or the case to be resolved because it runs against their economic and political interests, plus it will settle any doubts regarding their amateur, incompetent, corrupt, and unprofessional modus operandi as a police force. All of these elements plus many others not listed here make the author suspect that the Portuguese police could be implicated in different types of criminal activity; include the abduction of children which has become a highly lucrative business controlled by satanic ruling elite. This suspicion is not far-fetched if taken into account the high level of existing corruption at the highest pinnacle of government in countries such as Spain which is very similar to Portugal. The Portuguese are just as corrupt as the Spanish are and try in vain to divert their sick social reality with false and endless portrayals of a great "democracy" lead by a fascist-appointed king as a head of State. Spain is corrupt to the core in all aspects of life; it is a country that functions daily on the basis of criminal activity, lead by highly reactionary and criminal right wing professional gangsters in a two party system, just like in the United States. In fact, Spain is the version of the US in Spanish.



Another truth that shall make us free is the evident negligence of Gerry and Kate Mc Cann for leaving their children unattended, in an apartment located at a considerable distance from where they were dinning with friends the night Madeleine was abducted. Gerry has already admitted being guilty of this in an interview with Vanity Fair magazine, so there is no real needed to dwell on any further on this particular point. On the other hand, Gerry and Kate should not be blamed entirely for the tragedy; they are intelligent professionals and probably good parents who love their children very much and want the best for them. The blame should be put on perverted and morally depraved individual's product of this system who is devoid of any good principles and who put material interest above humanity. The Mc Cann family was simple enjoying normally a holiday just like thousands of others do every year in Portugal or Spain, and was not in the least suspecting what happened to them on the tragic night of May 3, 2007 when Madeleine was abducted. All people of good will should bear with Gerry and Kate Mc Cann and come to their side and support them unconditionally in what is probably the worst episode in their whole lives. We must think of Madeleine every day and do at least the most minimum task we can do towards the final goal of finding her. Due to the circumstances surrounding the case we believe that Madeleine will not be found by using conventional methods. The case falls into the category of those where the use extra judicial methods was necessary.

I do not deny, never did, that there is corruption is Portugal. Or in any country, for that matter. However, what I've always stated, is that it is much more complex than meets the eye. Also, I wouldn't like to see my Country internal affairs discussed on international fora, by people that may not, and don't, have a meaningful amount of information at their disposal. So far, I have been understood and , I'll say, respected in this forum.

Portugalonline is nothing more than a lampoon. Again, without denying that there is corruption in Portugal and even that corruption (petty corruption mainly) is part of portuguese culture, one should not confuse all the activity going on on casting all sorts of crimes and vices day in day out on specific and very well known people with 'corruption denunciation'. This circus, and I use the word in all conscience, is run by 'anonymous' people that always turn to being someone from the christian democratic camp with support of some PJ. May be one of these days we'll discover who's behind Portugalonline? And if their agenda matches the others'? There is corruption all right, but not the one Portugalonline spreads to the four winds.

Another aspect. I don't see the need you have in associating Spain and Portugal, in this case, on what seems to be the worst of both countries. For good and for bad, we've always done very well without you, thanks. I am not being xenophobic, but I really am proud of our independence. You know, Robert, Spain is my second motherland which I love very very much. More than half of my family are from over there and live over there. I even admire many characteristics of the spanish Peoples, more than I do those of Portuguese. But I can't stand arrogance, and that is what you also are, and you are being this moment. No, we don't look up at you. There is an old proverb 'From Spain neither good wind nor good wedding'. The weddings gave us 60 years of your Felipes and systematic (ie well organised) plunderage of our own empire. The wind is dry, freezing cold in winter and burning hot in summer.

I also do not understand your persistent call to 'extra judicial methods'. Undercover acts/activities/actions to uncover specific people, groups, illegal activities, is a dangerous task but yes, I would endorse it. By the way, you have a wonderful man, a reporter, who has to live underground because he decided to penetrate the real skinheads organisation and some woman traficking one, and then not only made videos of that he also published books. Under a pseudonym, of course. Brave man, he is. But 'extra judicial methods'? We are on the XXIst century and both our countries are states of law. Sorry.

I will explain myself on this forum regarding the "extra judicial" methods I have mentioned only if I am authorized in writing by whoever is in the position at this forum to do so. In the meantime, I can tell you that if you want to know what "extra" and "judicial" mean in the English language, look it up in a Dictionary. Actually, the term is self-explanatory except that to be understood in the context linked to Goncalo Amaral as the subject, some explaining would be necessary, and that's what I haven't told you openly on this forum. More later.

Maria:

I can feel some anger in the tone of your writing but at the same time I feel honesty and pride deep down inside of you as Maria la Portugesa. That's fine with me.

With regards to the portugal-on-line stuff, I am not on their side nor am I defending them but I know that what they published regarding the corruption in Portugal is true, and you have aknowledged this too. Concerning the "extra judicial" term I have been mentioning, I am glad you endorse it as you expressed in your writing. Yes, it is risky but in my opinion, it should be done. The essence of what I mean by "extra judicial" was already explained to ************* in a response to her recent mail in which she asked me to explain myself. If she wants to publish here what I told her it would be up to her, but personally, I would hope that she does not make public what I wrote in the message. It is rather sensitive...

Both of these countries are "States of Law?" Laws made to benefit who? Scum like Goncalo Amaral? Give me a break! Additionally, you have accused me of being "arrogant." Why am I "arrogant" to you? Because I tell the truth? As far as I am concerned, you have no grounds to tell me that I am "arrogant." It does not fit my profile at all. Here's a suggestion: Instead of wasting time on useless subjects like these, why not focus on creating unity amoung people whose children were abducted? The Fizpatrick [Ireland] and Vargas [Spain] families are already doing that, as a result of their children being kidnapped in what appears to be a linked between those cases and other abductions in Spain and Portugal, including Madeleine McCann. Let's work on that.

I must make one thing clear that as far as I am aware Maria has never once denied the existence of corruption in Portugal, each of our country's has corruption in some form, or in several forms, only some of us are freer to admit this and and shout until something gets done about it.
I sometimes get very passionate about corruption in certain cases in Portugal, but not all of Portugal's police are corrupt, that is like saying all of Ireland belong to the IRA, it just isn't correct.
Let me say this, if we are going to run around shouting that Baroso is a paedophile and ordered Madeleine's abduction, then no one is going to listen to us when we try to ask that something is done about Madeleine's abduction and personally I do not subscribe to the "theory" that Baroso did anything like that at all. I am aware of certain conspiracy theories doing the rounds on the net, personally I don't buy into them, however it is your prerogative to do so, generally we do not have them on the forum because we have to stay legal.

Also I would say that we do not endorse the "extra judicial" means that you talk about, I cannot think of one single thing that would bring more sympathy and credibility to this errant disgraced ex policeman, the argument for his arrest and interrogation would end there.

We need more people like Maria, her honesty even though it must cause her pain and distress is much appreciated.

I just say this: about being arrogant or not: it is not my concern, it is not important. With all do respect to our friend Robert: I don┤t share the theory about Barroso. But, in one thing Robert is right, and I quote: "Instead of wasting time on useless subjects like these (about being arrogant or not, about the Phiilipes kings) why not creating unity among people whose children were abducted? The Fitzpatrick (Ireland) and Vargas (Spain) - (let┤s also remind the Portuguese case: Rui Pedro) families are already doing that, as a result of their children being kidnapped. Let┤s work on that". By saying my opinion, I┤m not disrespect neither Maria nor Robert. I just think that enough of having the nasty 3A┤s, TB, Gonzo, antis trying to defeat us (which will not happen). So my friends, forgive me for being direct, but let┤s focus only on the main goal which is why this forum exists.

Pedro I agree with you. I am not concerned in the slightest with TB or Gonzo or the antis. They do not ever come within my radar. Just not interested. Too many bitter twisted unhappy dangerous deceitful mad people in the world to worry about. Let us concentrate instead on what we can all do to uncover corruption and find the lost children.
If we have to deal openly with the evil ones so be it. Just do not let us spend valuable time on thinking or wondering how they are.

Rosemary:

The theory that Jose Manuel Barroso ordered the kidnapping of Madeleine McCann and that the child is being held on his orderes IS NOT MINE. I suggest that you read the information on our blog again and after you do, tell the audience that you were wrong by accusing me of something I DID NOT create myself. Sometime ago, Pedro Silva did the same thing and I told him to do the same I am telling you now: Read the contents carefully before making abrut statements accusing me falsely. Based on your own written words, I suspect that maybe you think of me as an individiual who goes around making irresponsible statements -particularly in this case- against someone with so much power like Jose Manuel Barroso. Accusing him of ordering the kidnapping of Madeleine McCann without being able to prove it is suicidal. I can't even imagine the type of mess I would be myself in if I were to accuse him. I suggest also that you read the letter [without a mental blind fold] sent to him where you will be able to verify what I am trying to make you see, in your capricious stand to see it according to your own personal convenience.

The published report wherein statements implicating Jose Manuel Barroso as the man who ordered the kidnapping of the British child, after seeing her pictures sent to him from a computer in Praia da Luz, is an edited edition taken from the original published by world-renowned and highly respected investigative journalist, Christopher Story. He is the man who has publicly accused Jose Manuel Barroso of ordering the abduction of Madeleine McCann, not me. Christopher Story told his cyberspace audience that Jose Manuel Barroso sent a thug to threaten with dead if he made public what he knew, and that out of indignation and rage he decided to go public and accused Barroso of ordering the kidnapping of Madeleine. I suggest that if you don't like what Christopher Story wrote, tell him directly and stop accusing me.

You have also accused me of "going around shouting" that Barroso is a paedophile and that he ordered the kidnapping of Madeleine without any valid foundation. Myself and the Collective I belong to do not go "around shouting" about things that might be detrimental to anyone's dignity. What we do, however, is tell the truth or agree with something others may say or write about anyone, particulary in matters related to child abduction, perversion, or corruption. We believe that what Christopher Story wrote about Barroso is true, and have every right to either agree or disagree with him, regardless of what individuals like you think, say or write on this forum or anywhere else.

With regards to the "extra judicial" theory mentioned here before, it is entirely mine and does not reflect the position of any group, forum, association or other. I believe in what I wrote and will not change my position on this. If anyone wants to "endorse" it like Maria said she would, that's a choice of her own and you have no right to act on her behalf unless you are authorized to do so. In this case you are not.

As for this forum, my feeling based on what I see in writing everyday is that not much will ever come out of this, regarding what I believe should be a unified struggle against the worse of all crimes that child abduction for perververted purposes truly is. I respect killers more than I do perverts who kidnap little kids. All I want is to work on unity to struggle against the worst of all crimes, but now I find myself having to spend precious time on worthless matters, such as explaining why I am not responsible for what others did following nuisance and false accusations.

I cannot comment on the detail of what is being discussed here but I will say that, if those who are fighting for justice for the McCanns are seen to be associated with some of the weirder conspiracy theories going around, then they risk not being taken seriously.

In the same way, the conspiracy theories of Amaral, TB etc. are seen as nonsense by most intelligent people.

The forum has already produced the book on the Investigation, a great achievement. I had forgotten, until I read it again, the superb article written in the Portuguese paper Expresso by the editor, Henrique Monteiro. There, his total commitment to justice and his recognition of the bungled and incompetent investigation led by Amaral, are quite evident, as is his contempt for his "barbarism".

Here's short extract :
"The lawful state bases itself upon evidence, beyond doubt. The notion that innocence prevails over guilt when there is no evidence to the contrary is what separates civilization from barbarism. Unfortunately there are remains of barbarism among us. Until very recently it headed the PJ in Portimao. I hope he was the last one."

This was an exceptional article written in a Portuguese paper shortly after Amaral was removed from the case. I'm quite sure that the majority of intelligent Portuguese know precisely what to think of Amaral. Even Menezes himself actually said in court last week that he hadn't read the book! I'm sure we British recognise British stupidity and corruption when we see it, so why not the Portuguese also?

I think it would be a pity if this became a Portugal v UK "battle". It is NOT that and it shouldn't be presented as such. Surely each country has its own rich culture and traditions to offer to the European historical tapestry and each country also has its fair share of criminality and corruption, although these may sometimes be of different types.

Exactly Maria Theresa, to me this is not about Britain v Portugal it never has been.

You can clearly see there is a split in the UK as to those that believe The McCanns and those that dont, both sides are very very vocal. My frustration is, apart from our Portuguese friends on here, I do not see this split in Portugal and that I find very hard to understand, it must exist surely ?

Any thinking persons knows that this is not a Portugal v Britain problem. There is corruption in all police forces, fortunately they are in the minority.

Not very long ago a Portuguese Citizen was unjustly convicted of murder in England. It took two years to put it right. But it was done, and the person involved was exposed.

It is corruption that we are fighting, not Portugal.

But we're not living in Portugal, are we? I'm sure that many Portuguese people support the views expressed in the Expresso by Monteiro; maybe the majority of that newspaper's readers! We perhaps only see the vocal minority, the few who loudly support Amaral. But we did see people welcoming Kate and Gerry at the church in PdL recently.

Yes, the antis are vocal here, ON THE NET. But I haven't actually met anyone who doesn't sympathise with the McCann family. I think the "antis" here in the UK are very much a small minority. Look how disgusted ordinary people were by what Bennett and his cronies did in Rothley. I spoke to quite a few people who are not especially concerned with the case in terms of being actively "pro" but they were shocked and disbelieving about that little episode. Most people are of the view that the investigation was incompetently carried out and many also know about Amaral's conviction for perjury.

However, you may be right that there are more antis in Portugal than in the UK. I've sure our Portuguese friends would be able to tell us. All I meant was that I bet there are countless Portuguese people who recognise what they are dealing with in Amaral.

Re: Corruption and Portugal

Post by kazcut on Mon Feb 08, 2010 10:07 pm

just found this trying to find out who richard salbato is [i think he is connected to the church]


http://www.unitypublishing.com/Government/PortugalProblems.htm

Portugal is in Trouble
By Richard Salbato


In Portugal the President has almost King like power as he can override almost anything the government does and even the constitution. The only difference between the President and a King is that he can hold office for only 8 years. The actual government is run by the Prime Minister and elected by the people every four years.

The latest Prime Minister was Santana Lopes. The President, Jorge Sampaio, ordered him to step down and called for new elections, claiming lack of confidence in his leadership. Although Santana Lopes was only Prime Minister for a short time, he is taking the blame for huge financial problems in Portugal which they may not be able to overcome no matter who is elected.

The number of wealthy families in Portugal has dropped by 92 percent in just three years, from 26,802 four years ago to a mere 2,144 in 2003, suggesting tax evasion or just leaving the country. Just a few years ago, Portugal a founder member of the euro zone, had one of the fastest expanding economies in the European Union thanks to tumbling interest rates, a high level of infrastructure subsidies and the continued positive effects of inward investment. Then everything fell apart. The deficit was found to be larger than reported, and Portugal became the first EU member state to be threatened with European Commission fines. Portugal has some of the lowest gross domestic product (GDP) growth per capita in the 25-nation bloc.

Did Portugal Sell Out for Money

Last weekend in Athens, Portugal joined with 17 other European Union member states to thrash out what levels of EU subsidies each nation could expect to receive between 2007 and 2012 from the 25-nation bloc's paymasters - Germany, Britain, France, Holland, Sweden and Austria.

The Portuguese economy is largely dependent on EU subsidies having soaked up in excess of 180 billion euros since joining the Union in 1986, or 1.5 billion a year or 750 Euros per person per year for 19 years. Any cut back in donations would severely hamper any hope Portugal has of keeping the country's public deficit within EU limits. Think about that! 750 Euros per person for almost 20 years given to Portugal by the richer countries of Europe! Consider an average family of 4 and that becomes 3000 Euros per family or about 6 months of the average salary of Portugal for almost 20 years, and then ask, "Where did the money go?" Or better still ask: "What would Portugal do without it?"

Let us look at the concept. Consider a hypothetical area where there are a great many wild pigs in the mountains. Hard to just kill wild pigs because they hide in the brush and are very dangerous. But a thinking man knows how to just change the habits of animals and control them. He puts out food for them to eat, a great deal of food. He then does the same the next day and the next until the pigs no longer work for food but just wait for the handouts. Then he puts a great deal of food one day and as the pigs are eating he builds a fence around them and captures them all without a fight. This is what is happening in Portugal.

The New European Constitution is being composed by Masons, who are anti-Catholic. There goal in 1914 was to wipe out the Catholic Church in Portugal and it is the same today. But today instead of trying to take the country by force they are trying to buy it and they are doing it by making the people depend on the other countries to survive.
There is no planned referendum for the Portuguese people to vote yes or no to joining the European Constitution, The New European Rapid Deployment Force (this is outside of the UN or the US and will result in the break-up of NATO), will force Portuguese forces to be under Brussels control and not under Poruguese control and could be deployed anywhere. The European Government believes that it can by 2010 outstrip the US as the world's largest trading block, but this will not happen. The EU government has made it quite clear that it sees China as a better trading partner for the future than that of the US.
Is the US going to sit back and allow Europe with it's over inflated money destroy US world markets? No! Because America has the fastest growing economy in the world except for China. America will form a United American Economic Block starting with Brazil and Mexico, and again outstrip Europe.
Before, Portugal was a large exporter of wine and olives. But with the rise in the value of the Euro that has dropped in half. A large portion of Portugal's wealth came from the Tourism industry, but again because of the value of the Euro that has dropped off by 40% and will drop even more.

Portugal produced a lot of its own consumption but as part of the deal they made for the monies received from the other European countries, they agreed to stop production of things like milk and import all their milk from Spain. Think again of the wild pigs. Now just for something like milk they are dependent on Spain.

Can the major counties of Europe keep blackmailing Portugal? I do not think so. The number of people out of work in Germany rose 227,000 to 4.71 million in seasonally adjusted terms, including 230,000 new jobless claimants, the Nuremberg-based Federal Labor Agency said today. The adjusted unemployment rate rose to 11.4 percent, a seven-year high, while the unadjusted jobless total passed 5 million for the first time since the war. New jobless are increasing at a rate of 1,200 a day. France and Spain are at 10% Only England is at a normal rate of 4-5% but the rest of Europe is having problems. To top that off they are making new trade deals with Communist China that will put more people out of work.

The Portuguese Government is Corrupt from Top to Bottom

The entire Portuguese system is designed for corruption with no safe guards against it. Pilgrims come not realizing that their tour guides take kick backs from the hotels, stores and restaurants. If you want to find something of great value, you can always find someone to show you where to get it, and he will get a sizable kickback from the store for taking you there. There are always two prices, one for the Portuguese and one for the tourist. And if you would like to own something in Portugal or retire there, it gets worse. In order to buy almost anything in Portugal you need a lawyer. You have to give the lawyer Power of Attorney and then he handles everything but you never get copies of anything, and many lawyers end up with your property. Realtors are worse and will sell you anything at 30 to 50% more than it is worth, or even sell you something that is worth nothing because it cannot be built on or is condemned property. One of the great tricks is taking a down payment for something only to have the owner sell it to others and never getting your money back. If you ever let someone stay in your home for even a few days, you can never get rid of them - ever, and they can take over your home without ever paying you a penny. Contractors build without inspections and pay off the city hall. Restaurants operate without health permits and have rats running around the stored food. Laws mean nothing, it is the good-o-boy society. Look the other way because we live together and I can help you someday.

If you want to take anyone to court, forget it, because Portugal has something called "The Secrecy of Justice". Every country has this to some extent to protect the reputation of the innocent, but in Portugal it is to protect a corrupt court system. Not even your own lawyer can see anything in court until the case is over and even then only what the court wants to show them. The Newsmedia (the only thing that protects people from governments) has no access to the court systems - ever. The police system is the same.

The Portuguese people have long been complaining against a justice system which sees the high and mighty committing crimes involving billions of escudos but are never called to appear before a court of law or if they are, they are released without charge.

Now there is a new trend to discredit the police force (if a policeman shoots a criminal, even caught in the criminal act, he may serve a prison sentence) and sentences against infractors are becoming more and more
lenient.

In rural areas of Portugal, the populations have been known to take justice into their own hands. A mentally retarded individual who raped and killed a small girl in a village in the north of the country recently was tied to a tree, hanged and his body burnt with petrol. When the police investigated, the villagers all said they knew nothing about the incident. Lynchings of this kind are not common, but are frequent in Portugal, due to a justice system which does not adjust to the times.

For example, an 18-year-old man captured and tortured two boys aged 11. He strung them up in a disused building, tied their arms with wire, poured petrol over them and told them he was going to set fire to them. They were burnt with cigarette ends, punched and kicked. They were then forced to lie on the floor while a bicycle and a motorized bicycle were driven over them.

Fortunately, the actions of this pervert stopped there and did not pass the threshold of threat. However, two happy, extroverted little boys have been turned into nervous zombies after this attack. Their families say they have never been the same since (not surprisingly).

The result was three years of prison, suspended. This means that the perpetrator of this crime walks free and never did a day in jail and is out and ready to perform the same act with other innocent children. With the news that tens of children disappear daily from Lisbon to be sold into sexual exploitation rings, the news that popular lynching are on the rise surprises nobody.

When they are put in jail you cannot count on the pubic being safe from them, as in the case of multiple murderer Amrico Pissareira, who was let out of jail on his own to be with his family on Christmas, but instead he stabbing a man and assaulting two older people. Justice? None!

Elections on the Feast of Jacinta and Francisco

On February 20,2005 (the present feast of Jacinta and Francisco of Fatima) Portugal will have the great pleasure of electing a new Prime Minister. But what choices do they have. All those running for office are part of the very fabric that corrupted the system. Most of the Portuguese are tired of this corruption and bad politics to the point of crying. Most say that before 25th of April of 1974 everything was better. This was when Salazar controlled the government. It has reached the point here now that nobody cares who wins this election or who is in the power because everything will be exactly the same. A 35% turnout in this election will be very optimistic because the people just do not care about this government anymore. If you have money anything is possible here, but if you do not have money, you are at the mercy of those with money, because justice is not just, justice is for sale.

In a country were 95% of the people are Catholic, look who is president -

Jorge Sampaio, whose party, PS,, is pro abortion, and pro homosexual. People murmur that he disposed of Prime Minister Lopes, to please his Liberal party, and supports his party's candidate, Jose Socrates for Prime Minister.

In a country were 95% of the people are Catholic, look who they have to pick from to run the government -

Jose Socrates- this man belongs to PS( left), a man who changes of mind easily according to his own interests. He is known of having sexual affairs with men. PS is pro Abortion and pro homosexual even if it is quietly.

Jeronimo de Sousa- (PCP) This is an old fashioned communist. His partners want a government in the same fashion as the old Russia. They even say that Cuba, North Korea and China are democracies They want abortion as the African children want food. They are atheist.

Francisco Louša- belongs to Bloco de Esquerda and is a most cynical man. His answers are cruel and cold. He has insulted Catholics, as childish people who should never be against abortion. His party wants to make abortion, drugs and prostitution legal as it is in Holland. They hate all Catholics and the Pope and make no doubt about it.

Santana Lopes- (PSD) This man was the actual Prime Minister, but no one let him do his job. The Left convinced President Jorge Sampaio to fire him for no strong reason. He was known for being a womanizer in the past, but now he seems different . He has five children and he is against abortion, drugs and homosexuals. He is a charming person, never gets angry.

Paulo Portas-(CDS) This is the Catholic who was insulted by Francisco Louša. Most of this political party are devout Catholics. Portas was the man who forbade the entry of the infamous abortion ship. It was his strong will which put them out of this country. He's highly hated by Left and by the Masons. He has strong convictions and he is a serious person.

Five people are running for Prime Minister in Portugal, one of the most Catholic countries in the world and only one of them is a real Catholic. What is going on here? What is happening to the Church?

One Portuguese said: "A new revolution would be the solution, since this democracy doesn't work at all. Why? We are tired of lying people and corrupt politicians."

Where is the Church in Portugal?
During the Masonic take-over of Mexico, the Christeros fighters put up more than a little resistance to the oppressive regime backed by the Masons. But the Christeros were told to put down their arms by the Bishops of Mexico and they (being good Catholics) obeyed their bishops even though it meant almost certain death under the hands of the revolutionaries. The resistance was betrayed by the Church and as a result Mexican Catholics were persecuted and martyred for 75 years. At the same time the Masons took over all Catholic Portugal. Where was the Bishops of Portugal? How did they let Masons take over a Catholic country?

The people (mostly women) rose up in Portugal three times, twice to throw out the Masons, and again to stop the communists from taking over. Now the Masons are in almost every branch of government in Portugal. Somehow they are appeasing the bishops because the bishops say nothing and do nothing. Corruption in Portugal is everywhere, and the Church is doing nothing. "Not a Church problem." That is what they are saying, but when injustice is done, is not that everyone's problem including the Church. The Church has the power to correct the system in Portugal, but again it will let the Masons take over and turn Portugal into a Masonic European State, where abortions and homosexuals are not just legal but mandatory.

The European Constitution (just like the United Nations) is being controlled by the richest people in the world in order to take over all governments and create a New World Order or a One World Government. Take the conference in the Swiss ski resort of Davos, Switzerland, where 1000 of richest and most powerful CEOs of the world, that create wealth and jobs, are now meeting to discover the "state of the world."

The World Economic Forum is a facilitator for the goals and objectives of the United Nations-which is world government. This year it will sponsor 200 workshops covering a wide variety of topics: China, Climate Change, Poverty, the Global Economy, Islam, US Leadership, Bubble Economies, the World Trade Organization, Terrorism, Private Equity, Oil Prices, Crises, etc.

They are planning a global tax, a world military state in which the UN has a rapid deployment force (already set up), a Security Council enlarged with power to enforce sanctions, member states providing additional troops for disbursement to the UN at any time, a legal mechanism to enforce the International Criminal Court Statutes, a global police force, a new radical concept of "collective Security."

These international goals depend on economic and social dependency. This concept, "seals the deal" with regard to interdependency and inter-connectivity between nation-states. By integrating all these issues into corporate risk management, companies can help the international community advance the collective security agenda, while ensuring the viability of their businesses.

Portugal and Europe are headed for huge problems and the only solution is for Bishops, priests, nuns and lay Catholics to stand up and say "No!" to these corrupt governments. In America the Catholic Church, the Protestant Churches, the Jewish Churches and even Moslems are starting to get very active in the public square and making themselves a power that cannot be overlooked. The same has to happen again in Portugal.

The only hope is that this election will happen on the Feast day of Jacinta and Francisco and I feel good will come of this fact. However, I think the good that comes of it will be a new revolution.
