The Big Card Move or the Big Demonic Confusion: Small one-man publisher publishes book “Machiavelli or the Demonic Confusion” by Olavo de Carvalho in the U.S.

By Julio Severo

At last, Olavo de Carvalho, after a life of self-exile as a Brazilian immigrant in the U.S. since 2005, managed to launch a book in English in the U.S.

Although ostentatiously the book brings a compliment from President Jair Bolsonaro (“His work greatly contributed to my arrival in government… I will always remember that and continue to admire Olavo”) on the cover itself, in an effort to promote Carvalho at the expense of the Brazilian president, the book was not published by one of the major American publishers. It was not even published by an average American publisher.

It was published by the effort of one man, Daniel Ashman, who since July 2020 was looking for ways to translate one of Carvalho’s books from Portuguese to English. Ashman’s personal publishing house, Ashman Free Press, presents the book “Machiavelli or the Demonic Confusion” saying that Carvalho is the “#1 Brazilian Bestselling Author,” having sold more than 1 million books.

Ashman seems unaware that only one of the books by the Brazilian author Paulo Coelho, “The Alchemist,” sold more than 65 million copiesin 2014 alone. One million is only 2 percent of 65 million.

In total, Coelho sold more than 350 million copies of his books. One million is just less than half a percent of 350 million!

Although both Carvalho and Coelho have an occult history of syncretic Catholicism, they do not have the same level of fame. One is vastly famous, even in the U.S. The other, even being propagandized by the Brazilian president, did not even reach 1 percent of Coelho’s fame.

If, in Ashman’s view, Carvalho is the “#1 Brazilian Bestselling Author,” which number should Paulo Coelho receive? If he finds it difficult to answer, just ask Carvalho, who understands numerology and astrology charts.

It was also not honest for Ashman to point out in the book that Bolsonaro’s arrival in the Brazilian government was because mainly of Carvalho. Silas Malafaia, the biggest televangelist in Brazil, has already responded to such dishonesty by saying that Bolsonaro himself told him several times that if 80 percent of Brazilian evangelicals supported him, he would be elected. Malafaia helped and most evangelicals voted for Bolsonaro, resulting in his victory.

Ashman should, honestly, have mentioned in the book cover the phrase where Carvalho called the Bolsonaro administration a “shit *” in 2020 and threatened overthrow it. Carvalho’s attack on the Bolsonaro administration was also answered by Malafaia.

Ashman’s lack of knowledge, or a deliberate card move, gave Carvalho a position he doesn’t have. The most appropriate title for the book “Machiavelli or the Demonic Confusion” is “Daniel Ashman’s Great Political Poker Card Move and Olavo de Carvalho’s Political Astrology Move in the American Public.”

Usually, Carvalho complains about American authors who expose their ideas without knowing Portuguese, where his works are concentrated, but what did Ashman do? The same thing.

Carvalho also demands from the Americans who exposed his occultism a philosophical giantism that even he does not have. Ashman, who published Carvalho in the U.S., is no philosopher and has no published philosophy books. The only “big” book by Ashman that I found on Amazon was about playing cards, and it’s no best seller. The book’s title is “Dominate No-Limit Hold’em: A Guide To The Math And Pyschology Of Poker (D&B Poker).”

What does Ashman, as a poker player, then want with such a grand presentation of Carvalho’s book in the U.S.? To play a big card move on American readers?

Ashman has a poker player background, while Carvalho’s official background is as a professional astrologer. But both think of themselves as big political analysts.

Ashman probably tried to play a card move in a large or average American publisher, but since none fell for the scam, he had to create his own small personal publishing house to launch Carvalho in the U.S.

Instead of complaining about Ashman for his inaccuracies, Carvalho presented his American book as if it had been published by the largest American philosophical publisher or editor.

I do not need to read the book published by Ashman to know that Carvalho is endowed with a revolutionary and dictatorial spirit. I say this because of the very persecution I suffer from occultist Olavo de Carvalho, a Brazilian self-exiled immigrant in the United States who has used the U.S. freedoms to persecute a Brazilian without such freedoms and money. Carvalho is considered the guru (esoteric adviser) of President Jair Bolsonaro. With such massive influence now, Carvalho thinks it is time to take revenge on me for exposing his history and occult connections, in addition to the scandal that he is the greatest Brazilian advocate of the Inquisition.

In his spite of hatred and revenge, in a video of June 11, 2020 Olavo de Carvalho asked the administration of President Jair Bolsonaro to investigate mefor the “crime” of exposing his occultism and his advocacy of the Inquisition. In a 2019 video, he also asked the Brazilian Federal Police to investigate me.

In a video published on June 21, 2020, Carvalho asked for new actions against me.

So for three times, in public videos, Carvalho has incited persecution against me.

If there is some U.S. attorney who can help me against such persecution, please contact me.

Although Carvalho says he is much persecuted, the vast majority of reports and articles about him in English accurately present him as a man with an occult history. One of the greatest books against the occult, “War For Eternity: Inside Bannon’s Far-Right Circle of Global Power Brokers,” by Benjamin R. Teitelbaum, presents the main names of Guénon’s Traditionalist School, including Steve Bannon, Julius Evola, Alexander Dugin and Carvalho, who was only mentioned, albeit rarely, because of the much propaganda Bolsonaro does for him.

Teitelbaum is an American Jewish writer and his book deals with occultism on the right in the U.S., Russia and Brazil.

Carvalho has not threatened Teitelbaum and other Americans who exposed their occult connections, but he has, in several videos, threatened me, asking the Bolsonaro government and the Federal Police to investigate me. His claim is that my exposés against him involving the Inquisition and esotericism are a threat to Brazil’s national security.

The difference between him and me is big. He says he is persecuted when the U.S. press exposes his occult connections, while for years I have been attacked by the leftist press in the United States solely because of my conservative evangelical stances against abortion and homosexual sin.

While Carvalho is “persecuted” for his occult connections, I am persecuted by the left and by Carvalho himself for my Christian connections. All criticism of the U.S. press against Carvalho is not because of Christianity, but because of occultism and extremist rightism. All criticism of the U.S. press against me is because of Christianity.

Now, a Brazilian astrologer has the aid of a U.S. poker player to promote his tricks in America.

Only a poker player could introduce Carvalho to the American public as if he were the “#1 Brazilian Bestselling Author,” above Brazilian author Paulo Coelho, who has more than 350 million books sold.

Will American readers fall for Ashman’s card move?
