MOST WESTERN NEWS CONSUMERS are aware that, in Brazil, a far-right presidential candidate, Jair Bolsonaro, came close in Sunday’s national election to winning the 50% of the vote needed to win without a run-off (he received 46.2%), and is now highly likely to prevail on October 28 against his opponent, the liberal Workers’ Party’s Fernando Haddad, who finished a distant second with 29%. That result, by itself, is stunning, given that Bolsonaro is an undiluted, explicit authoritarian in the model of Duterte and Sisi — one could easily say “fascist” even using the narrowest and most most rigorous sense of that term — who had been a fringe figure in politics for decades but is now poised to assume the presidency. But the consequences of Sunday’s election extend far beyond Bolsonaro’s likely victory. Bolsonaro’s extremist party, and others aligned with his ideology, took over Brazilian politics, winning at all levels, and in most regions, with a wave that was as engulfing as it was unexpected. And what makes all of this particularly remarkable is that it happened in a country that prior to this year – in four consecutive national elections beginning with 2002 — had elected the Workers’ Party led first by a firebrand labor leader (Lula) and then by a former Marxist guerilla who was imprisoned and tortured for taking up arms against the country’s military dictatorship (Dilma). It’s hard to put into words what a profound shift this is for the planet’s fifth most-populous country. What is happening in Brazil matters not just because it’s a huge country with one of the world’s largest economies and oil reserves, but because the dynamics driving this extremism are similar and linked to the dynamics driving fundamental changes in other western democracies, including the disappearance of the “center” in lieu of a far right (as well as a more progressive but out-of-power left). What is happening in Brazil and, more importantly, why is all of this happening? How serious of a threat is Bolsonaro’s rise to basic democratic institutions and human rights? And what does all of this tell us about what is happening throughout the democratic world? To explore those questions, Glenn Greenwald spoke (in English) with two Brazilian journalists with The Intercept Brasil, Bruna de Lara and Victor Pougy, and examined all of these issues. The 35-minute discussion provides a clear and illuminating picture of these trends sweeping not just Brazil but all of the democratic world. Subscribe to our page: https://interc.pt/subscribe
The Secret Service. This squad of elite agents, assigned with the task of protecting the President of the United States, doesn’t give much away. Let’s dig into a world of dark glasses and tech.

Secret offices - On H Street in Washington DC, there’s a dull-looking, 9 storey, tan-bricked, unnamed building. It’s so indistinctive, you could walk past it and not even know it’s there. Secret arsenal - As you’d expect, the Secret Service has the latest in cutting-edge weaponry at their disposal. When you’re dealing with people who want to harm the President, you have to get the job done first time. Not just the President - While protecting the President is the Secret Service's priority, they don’t just protect him. The First Lady, the Vice President, the rest of the First Family, and all former Presidents all receive official protection. They're stuck to the President - When you’re guarding the President, you have to go wherever they go. Literally. Even when the president goes to the bathroom, there’s an armed agent in there with him. Brains over brawn - They don’t call these guys Special Agents for nothing. Secret Service agents used to be primarily recruited from the military, but nowadays they go for brains over brawn. No sworn oath - Contrary to what they tell you in Hollywood movies, Secret Service agents do not swear an oath to lay down their life for the President. Advanced recon - As we heard earlier, the hardest part of the Secret Service’s job is protecting the President when they’re at events with large crowds. Transport secrets - We’ve all seen the Presidential motorcade, the seemingly endless parade of black stretch limos. But, there’s only one President. They know where you are - If you’re interested in the President, it’s safe to say the Secret Service is interested in you. They’re able wingmen - It seems when you're the leader of the free world, you automatically become extremely attractive to the opposite sex.
