Brazilian President Bolsonaro has signed the order to elevate the Superior Military Court STM over the corrupt left-wing Supreme Court, in a move that many believe may pave the way for a military intervention before Jan. 1, when corrupt Communist convict Lula da Silva is scheduled to take office as President.
“In the last 72 hours, there has been much chatter and speculation on social media about Jair Bolsonaro having already placed Brazil under the Armed Force’s tutelage”, Rio Times reports. “It is also rumored that the country’s Superior Military Court STM has already responded positively to the complaints against the controversial Supreme Court.”
The Official Gazette of Brazil published a ruling that “The Ministry of Defense is approved to be the agency that interprets the Constitution in Brazil.”
This means, the Ministry of Defense will officially exercise the function of interpreting the Constitution. This privilege usually belongs to the Supreme Court. The new ruling “harbors explosive force in light of the show-down between Jair Bolsonaro and the Brazilian Supreme Court in the decisive battle for power in the country”, Rio Times writes.
