    Corrupt Socialist Lula Beats Bolsonaro in Brazilís Closest Presidential Election in Decades

    Hmm, by my reckoning, and please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong, that means that every single nation in Central and South America now has a leftist, socialist or outright communist government.

    And for years now, the people who did this and voted for this and support this are invading our nation by the millions.

    And nobody $#@!ing cares...




    Corrupt Socialist Lula Beats Bolsonaro in Brazilís Closest Presidential Election in Decades

    https://www.breitbart.com/latin-amer...on-in-decades/

    FRANCES MARTEL 30 Oct 2022

    The top electoral authority in Brazil announced on Sunday evening that 77-year-old hardline socialist Luiz InŠcio Lula da Silva, once convicted and sentenced to over two decades in prison for alleged corruption, had won this yearís presidential election against incumbent conservative Jair Bolsonaro.

    In his first words as president-elect for a third term, Lula vowed to ďreconstruct the very soul of this nationĒ away from the small government, pro-freedom ideals of the Bolsonaro administration.

    Little more than a percentage point separated Lula, who served as president previously from 2003 to 2011, from Bolsonaro, as of 10 p.m. ET, representing about 2 million votes in a nation of 214 million people. National newspaper of record O Globo described the results as the closest election since 1989, when Lula narrowly lost to Fernando Collor de Mello, who was impeached and ousted from office over corruption allegations in 1992. Collor later supported the impeachment ouster of Lulaís protege, Dilma Rousseff, in 2016, also prompted by corruption allegations Ė kicking off the series of events that ultimately led to Bolsonaroís 2018 victory.

    Looks like we can add Bolsonaro to the list of world leaders who cucked like a little bitch when their country needed them most. What a joke. Bolsonaro thought he was gold but it looks like he's nothing but a dirt clod.

    A movie who's time has come.

    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

    The following is material is from a video-heavy thread of tweets.

    Rather than embed them all or provide static images, I have merely copied the text.

    Timestamps range from 8:28 PM CDT (2022-10-31) to 12:45 AM CDT (2022-01-01).

    SOURCE: Twitter thread @ https://twitter.com/VishBurra/status...55260715835392



    HAPPENING NOW: Things are developing quickly in Brazil, and not in a good way after the election that was STOLEN from Bolsonaro.
    The police are starting to join with the Bolsonarista truck drivers who are protesting the fraudulent results of the Brazilian election.

    BREAKING: Roads to S„o Paolo Airport now BLOCKED by pro-Bolsonaro protesters.

    ALSO HAPPENING: Federal SWAT Police in Brazil are now JOINING with pro-Bolsonaro protesters.

    Reports on the ground are that WhatsApp service is being blocked in some regions of the country to break up coordination among pro-Bolsonaro protesters.

    My sources state that The Sao Paulo Civilian Police is under barracks order, and colleagues in the police union claim they will uprise and join the pro-Bolsonaro protesters.

    Sources also stating military police units in Sao Paulo are being pressured by the current sitting governor, but might join the pro-Bolsonaro protesters as well.

    HAPPENING NOW: Road between Rio de Janeiro and S„o Paolo now BLOCKED by pro-Bolsonaro protesters.

    Pro-Bolsonaro protesters now blocking the path of army units in order to pressure them into joining the protests against the fraudulent election results in Brazil.

    BREAKING: National Road Police has joined with the protesters blocking the S„o Paulo International Airport and has assisted them in cutting through the fencing of the airport.

    BREAKING: Youtube has just announced they will actively censor any dissenting content about the election result in Brazil.

    HAPPENING NOW: Pro-Bolsonaro protesters in Brazil are now blocking the road to Paraguay using a crane and junkyard scrap.

    UPDATE: Pro-Bolsonaro protesters are blocking the Rio de Janeiro - Santos road, with support from local military police.

    MORE: Protesters using cranes and farm equipment to block a road that connects Western Brazil to the Amazonic region and the SE region (where metro centers such as Rio and S„o Paulo are). Sinop-MT is the heartland of Brazilian ag production. This means food canít leave the region

    ON THE GROUND: Pro-Bolsonaro protesters are using construction trucks to haul dirt and sand to block roads.

    BREAKING: From a road block in Acre, deep in the Amazonic region near border with Bolivia and Peru.

    According to this protester, the National Force (Federal Swat Team) in Acre met with protesters, helped them set a roadblock, and are now leaving the state and going to BrasŪlia.

    Youtube Announces Policy Against Questioning That Lula Won in Brazil, vs. Anti-Vax Bolsonaro

    Youtube Announces Policy Against Questioning That Lula Won in Brazil, Anti-Vax Bolsonaro Has Not Even Conceded

    So now we know there was fraud and Bolso won. Just like Trump in 2020.

    Let me guess: Bolsonaro will cry foul play, refuse to concede, gather evidence, leave office no matter what at the end of the day, then spend the next 4 years going on a tour saying that the election fraud will be exposed completely in the next Brazillian presidential election.

    Do I have that correct? Am I in the ballpark?

    Totalitarian revolution is a tricky thing. You have to control the media and courts, which the left does in Brazil and the US, but then for full control, you must control the police and military. That’s a little but harder, although Obama, Soros and friends have been working hard to purge the ranks of anyone who would oppose leftist totalitarian dictatorship in the US.

    So my question is, does the left control the military and police in Brazil?

    Got to hand it to the people of Brazil. They really have some balls of steel to do what they're doing. Sadly it'll be all for naught when Bolsonaro ends up leaving office.

    https://nsarchive2.gwu.edu/NSAEBB/NSAEBB282/index.htm Biden likes Lula? Trump had a big long bro~mance with JAIR?


    Nixon needed Brazil to be 'on board' as our CIA went after Allende in Chile. We already are hip deep in Brazil's politics


    and events in Brazil often mirror the $#@! we are going thru. JAIR obviously wants to be the next JUAN PERON and yes,


    he is politically to the right of JUAN PERON and Getulio Vargas. https://www.britannica.com/biography/Getulio-Vargas


    In the early 1940s VARGAS had declared Martial Law in Brazil, and FDR was never too upset over that. He did not want


    Brazil to tilt fascist. We are seeing the same pattern today. Either i must say JAIR is in Trump's pocket or Trump is in JAIR's


    pocket, however he might be closer to pulling off a military dictatorship than THE DONALD was. Assuming LULA actually did


    put one of his hands in the proverbial cookie jar, if he does a repeat performance, he is out the door. Again, assuming LULA


    deep down is simply a politician. JAIR is born in 1955, he is ten years younger than LULA. I expect him to run again. LULA's


    victory is very very very narrow. In 2016, had 5 to 10 counties gone heavily for Hillary, she might have won the respective


    states she needed. 2020 was a more honest election than 2016, but both elections could have been stolen. Thusly, we see


    that Trump would have backed JAIR to a 99 or 100 percentile. BIDEN is not letting a JUNTA take over, unlike the way things


    were when both LBJ and Richard M. Nixon meddled in Latin American politics. Again, General Franco may have inspired JAIR.


    He didn't dare do a bold move because he KNOWS he still has time to secure 55% of the vote in a future election. LULA does


    have a track record. He is a colorful character and often is his own worst enemy. He is not a pot smoker but is a closet hippie.

  31. #27
    The press coverage of JAIR after his narrow defeat has him avoiding cameras, the media and publicity.
    Speculation has him fretting and sulking, even though the polls for months had them both very close...

  32. #28
    Both sides were eyeing each other, and guessing if the other was about to pull off a political coup.
    For all practical purposes Getulio Vargas was a reform minded left wing fascist. Juan Peron did things
    in a similar manner to him in Argentina in the 1950s. At the point of Juan Peron's passing, he went
    more to the right. Jair Bolsonaro is clearly to the right of Getulio Vargas. Yes, things are not quiet.
    There are crowds and protesters, yes.... but JAIR BOLSONARO is younger by ten years. Time is on
    his side, should he back off a bit and then politically pounce on LULA's mistakes and confusions.

  33. #29
    Or i am wrong.... and like YE maybe JAIR is a closet n~a~z~i

    he reminds me of the way Juan Peron acted in the 1970s, i was

    assuming he wants to run things in a likewise manner to the way

    Peron did in Argentina. I was not thinking he was trying to pull

    off a coup. Again, both sides were certain as things went to the

    wire concerning the election, that the other side would trigger a coup.

    Biden wanted the election to be honest and fair. I think the thinks

    LULA won it fair and square. JAIR risks much if he tries to do a bold

    move. I honestly don't think he is a Nazi but i do think he is like Trump,

    if he's going for the cookies in life's cookie jar, he grabs with both hands.

    LULA hypothetically had only one hand in the proverbial cookie jar. He is

    very hippie and very unimaginative. JAIR has a flair about him. I think he

    thinks he has the Trumpster in his own hip pocket. WHEN Trump runs again,

    when Trump does his speeches for the early primaries, expect JAIR to plunge

    back in again. They may end up being a tag team. Trump was willing to let JAIR

    do what he damn well pleased. BIDEN is more strict. Letter of the law. Old School.
