Bolsonaro Fights Brazil Election Defeat
Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro is arguing some votes from the knife-edge election battle defeat to Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva should be “invalidated” after his coalition found “signs of irreparable malfunction” in older models of electronic voting machines.
Gleisi Hoffmann, President of Lula’s Workers Party, branded the move as “chicanery” and an “insult to democracy” despite the Bolsonaro coalition’s audit warning of “serious failures” in the system.
The national currency dropped 1.3% upon news of the complaint.}
Note the compĺaint — voting machines — same as US complaints. There is a dirty hand here and I say that with certainty. The whole of the US right and far right are Bolsonaristas.
We will now see the fires erupt in Brazil.
Some excellent work here from Brian Mier.
A group of Bolsonaro followers who refuse to accept the results of Brazil's democratic presidential elections, worried that the military coup they have been calling for won't happen, were filmed yesterday calling for an "extraterrestrial general" to come to Earth and remove Lula. https://t.co/kIqrJhMv6z

Elite funded, targeted disinformation campaigns on social media were key in getting Brazil’s far-right President Jair Bolsonaro into power in 2018. In this interview I did with law professor @LianaCirne , she explains why it didn't work in 2022. https://t.co/0ko784jgr8

Hi Amarynth Down here in NZ they all seem to have swallowed the Bolsanaro Saint/Lula Bad meme, hook line and sinker. Today I messaged one of our country’s best-known freedom-fighting organisations with this warning… “I have always been a huge admirer of all of XXXX’s work but was very concerned… Read more »
Hi Col mate 🙂 The thing, for me anyway, is that, in general, it seems so easy for the white ppl, standing on a high pedestal of ‘democracy’ therefore ‘free speech’ to comment or worse propagandize the colour ppl, their history and culture, and profit from it, monetary or ‘feel… Read more »
Only 3 seconds? You gotto go and read the Kama Sutra lol. There is of course a deep-seated racial element here. This is why Lavrov and others from his office started calling these people the Anglo-Saxons. I laughed so much at that descriptor but I am one of them. So… Read more »
I bow to my genes 😀 there was a research, official sex research, by white man obviously, that ‘proves’ the chinese has the 3rd shortest dick, 2nd is TW pirates-man, and last, you would have guessed it too, as its in the porn special search terms, the japanese man (search… Read more »
I’m still looking QC for somewhere to emigrate to, but I haven’t come up with anything that looks safe and stable in the long term yet. I will carry on with my DD and hopefully get good advice on anything that looks promising. If I think I have made any… Read more »
This has always been my problem with some. Fidel Castro managed to free Cuba from colonialism and the sick sex playground of the rich from the US and the pain is that they cannot plunder Cuba any longer. Fidel kept Cuba on its feet for a good number of years… Read more »
Bolsonaro is a fake. He is a US-made man. He is a World Bank and an IMF toady. He was helped into power by the US. He destroyed Brazil’s social securities and programs, and the US kept on plundering. We know the man who finessed Bolsonaro into power – the… Read more »
The latest information here may be good news:
“Brazil’s Central Electoral Commission rejected Bolsonaro’s party’s demand to annul part of the vote in the presidential election and fined it $4.2 million “for going to court with bad intentions,” G1 reported.”
Oh dear Col, That response made me so hot under the collar, I’m writing up a storm – working title, Multipolarity on the street. How does it work for you and me. But I’m halfway into something else lol. And then, I saw in your response that there was some… Read more »
Absolutely Amarynth!… I would love this group to interview someone on the Lula/Bolsanaro subject that has more than half a brain and some knowledge of the real situation on the ground in Brazil. Your comprehensive reply above is absolutely first rate and I would love to just send them that…… Read more »
OK; then we take it to email and see if we can organize something. Oh no, don’t send them my rant .. hahaaaa …. that was for us. Perhaps, if you can, give me the other interviews that the person speaks of, so that I know who I should approach.… Read more »
K, Amarynth… I’ll message them right now and see if they will disclose who they actually did “interview”. What’s the bet that the names will be a major giggle when you find out who they actually are? It could well be simply bluster, and the interviews may never have taken… Read more »
I suspect I am not going to get a reply back from them Amarynth. Perhaps the best tactic now is for you to come up with a name of a really honest and knowledgeable person for them to interview and I will message that to them… that way they have… Read more »
I would suggest first Brian Mier. He is a native Chicagoan and will have a sense of the racial issues. He can be contacted through Telesur English: https://www.telesurenglish.net/ Then, my second choice would be Aline Piva. https://kawsachunnews.com/podcast/ep-12-brazil-elections-with-aline-piva She can be contacted through Kawsachunnews: https://kawsachunnews.com/ More of a generalist, I would… Read more »
Awesome Amarynth, thank you so much, I will politely suggest these people for interviews. Re Pepe… with the utmost respect, I don’t think that this subject is too small for him. IMHO this is a huge issue because the success or failure of Brazil in warding off, what is essentially… Read more »
Another question .. do these folks know about the Monroe Doctrine? The doctrine that clearly called out Central and South America as the ‘backyard’ of the US hegemony? I bet they don’t know. This is the doctrine that literally kept all of these countries with a knife to their throats.… Read more »
Amarynth, these folks are very young and you and I both know from the original incoherrent response I received, that their knowledge of history is sadly lacking. My geopolitical journey has taught me that we all must do the historical hard yards in order to make reliable interpretations of current… Read more »
It appears that these people have taken this position in support of Bolsanaro and won’t be reconsidering anything let alone interviewing someone that might offer a different view.
I imagine I won’t be hearing back from them. If I do, I will let you know.
Thanks, kind Sir .. we have so much to give attention to, that I am actually quite relieved.
