The non-fiction thriller about an American journalist chased out of Brazil in November 2022 by CIA agents amidst the post-election demonstrations.

I only spoke for a couple minutes, and some of the speakers were talking past each other a bit when it came to ideologies, but ICYMI, I appeared on Greg Boulden’s show, America Emboldened, with his co-host, Michael Chandler,

“The censorship in Brazil is the worst I have seen in any Western democracy. De Moraes has acted unilaterally to invent whole new laws that are for interfering not only with new elections but taking over the role of Congress.

My involvement began on April 3rd, 2024, when I published the Twitter Files Brazil. They show Supreme Court Justice [Alexandre] De Moraes had illegally demanded that Twitter reveal private information about Twitter users who had used hashtags he considered inappropriate and demanded the deplatforming of independent journalists and politicians.

Three days later on April 6th, X corporation, formerly Twitter, announced that a Brazilian court had forced it to ‘block certain popular accounts in Brazil.’

One hour later, X’s owner, Elon Musk, announced that X would defy the court’s order and lift all restrictions.

One day later, April 7th, De Moraes announced a criminal investigation into Musk allegedly for spreading disinformation, obstructing justice and allowing people who De Moraes had banned from social media to freely express their views.

De Moraes said he would fine X $20,000 per day for every banned person Musk allowed to speak. On April 15th, X’s top attorney in Brazil, resigned his post, fearing for his safety.

On April 18th and April 19th, Brazil’s federal police published two reports that suggested that I [Michael Shellenberger] was under criminal investigation for publishing the Twitter Files Brazil.

The reports claim that the people who De Moraes had demanded be censored had gained limited access to communicate on X, particularly through X’s Spaces, which allows for live conversation.

This is yet more evidence that De Moraes is obsessed with silencing his enemies. It is not enough for X to have blocked his profiles in Brazil, De Moraes also does not want those people to be able to use their voices.”
