Lula (PT) and minister Luis Roberto Barroso, president of the Federal Supreme Court (STF), led the removal of fences from Praça dos Três Poderes, this week, cheering for “democratic normality”, as if they had nothing to do with it. The fences were installed during the first Lula government, on the narrow sidewalk of the Palácio do Planalto and on the other side of the street, over the square, to prevent people from approaching. Dilma would multiply bars during demonstrations for her impeachment.
The square no longer belongs to the people “like the sky belongs to the condor”, in the words of Castro Alves, after the STF made railing suppliers happy.
They surrounded and abandoned Praça dos Três Poderes, which turned into filth. Weeds sprouting between the Portuguese stones, holes, dirt.
By removing fences posing as “liberators” having been the ones who installed them, the authorities should return the clean Square to the people. And restored.
Reporter André Vianna was prevented yesterday by security guards from speaking live on BandNews FM radio near the statue of Justice, 50m from the STF.

Tarcísio said he knows the PT, which is why he wants to stay away
By waving to Tarcísio Gomes de Freitas (Republicans) to “return to the PT”, to which he was never a member, President Lula showed that he had not seen the various videos viral on the internet in which the governor of São Paulo explains that precisely because he had worked in PT government and aware of the non-republican practices of PT members, he is “anti-PT member by conviction”. He also stated several times, in TV interviews, that “the PT represents corruption and backwardness” and “deceived the population”.
He said he was once asked, in a restaurant, to “return” to PT. He explained that he knows how the PT operates and that’s why he wants distance.
A citizen with solid training, consolidated during his Army days, former captain Tarcísio does not give up ethical principles ignored in the PT.
The waves were made this Friday (2), during an event in São Paulo, when the governor just smiled when he heard the cry “come back, Tarcísio”.
Senator Áureo Mello spent the 1994 Carnival in Rio de Janeiro, at the family home of the poet JG de Araújo Jorge. One day, he was surprised by the famous photo, in the newspapers, of Itamar Franco with the model Lílian Ramos, at the Sambadrome. She was only wearing a t-shirt, with nothing underneath. “What a mess Itamar made on the avenue…”, commented a friend of the senator. Áureo Mello adjusted his glasses, brought the newspaper closer to his face and joked: “My God! If my memory serves me right, this is what I said!…” The senator had a good memory.
Eight of the ten STF ministers at Ricardo Lewandowski’s inauguration as Minister of Justice, something unthinkable in any respectable democracy, served as a message: definitely, the Lula government will not have problems in any case that will be judged in the Court.
In the opinion of political scientist Fernando Schuller, columnist for Grupo Bandeirantes, Lula’s move to swear in Lewandowski is as important as Bolsonaro’s mistake in fighting with STF ministers.
A prominent member of the Psol, Luíza Erundina did not reveal Marta Suplicy’s affiliation with the PT, whom she previously called a “traitor of the people”. Marta must share a ticket with Guilherme Boulos (Psol).
Passed over in the PL and without Jair Bolsonaro’s support to run for mayor of São Paulo, deputy Ricardo Salles no longer wants to talk about the subject: “the page has turned,” he said. But he can leave the party.

The offense by the state’s Álvaro Porto (PSDB) against the governor of Pernambuco, Raquel Lyra (PSDB), is just the tip of the iceberg of the fight in the toucan’s nest. There is no shortage of invitations, like those from the PSD, for Raquel to change parties.
The goal in Jair Bolsonaro’s PL is for the party to elect between 1,000 and 1,500 mayors in this year’s municipal elections. For the 2026 elections, the group’s priority will be to expand its bench in the Senate.
This Saturday (3) the blackout that hit eight states in the Northeast during the first year of impeached former president Dilma Rousseff (PT) turns 13 years old. It left more than 46 million Brazilians without electricity.
Canada approved imports of beef from new Brazilian states recognized as free from foot-and-mouth disease without vaccination: Rio Grande do Sul, Paraná, Acre and Rondônia benefited.
…STF ministers don’t stop this mania of helping Lula with bars.
