The entire nation of Brazil is in a citizen uprising over allegations of a rigged presidential election. Millions have taken to the streets in protest of President-elect Lula da Silva, a far-left socialist and convicted criminal who was sentenced to 12 years in prison on corruption charges.

The head of Brazil's electoral authority on Wednesday rejected the request from President Jair Bolsonaro and his political party to annul ballots cast on most electronic voting machines, which would have overturned the Oct. 30 election.

The numbers just don’t add up.  

The Arizona 2022 election was a mess.  It appears that it was meant to be a mess.  The Democrats and RINOs in the GOP did not want to see Arizona GOP candidates for statewide races win.  These candidates were excellent and tied to President Trump but the establishment didn’t want them.

The election comes and there are innumerable incidents across the state where the voters were disenfranchised or prevented from voting.  Election day voters were Republicans who backed the MAGA initiative.

Historic denial of election data is happening in the state of Arizona because the midterm elections earlier in November were completely suspicious and election officials really had no choice other than to say ‘NO’ to lousy election results.

Fox news has gone to the dark side and labeled the historical problems with election integrity as nothing more than ‘conspiracy theories,’ when in fact, thousands of eyewitness statements have been collected showing that the election problems in the largest of AZ’s counties were very, very disturbing and highly corrupt.

Bill Gates, chair of the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors, confirmed that he was moved to an undisclosed location for safety reasons amid security concerns in connection to the 2022 midterm elections.

While speaking on KTAR News 92.3 FM’s “Arizona’s Morning News” on Nov. 21, Gates noted that the condition hasn’t interfered with his work in the state’s election system.

Brazil has started freezing the bank accounts of citizens found to be protesting against the nation’s recent presidential election results, according to reports.

As Slay News has reported, millions of Brazilians have been flooding the streets to rise up in protest over the controversial election.

Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro has challenged his electoral defeat last month to leftist rival Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, according to a complaint filed with the country's federal electoral court (TSE) that alleges votes from certain electronic voting machines should be "invalidated."

Bolsonaro's claim seems unlikely to get far, as Lula's victory has been ratified by the TSE and acknowledged by Brazil's leading politicians and international allies. But it could fuel a small but committed protest movement that has so far refused to accept the result.

Don Surber wrote a great post this week that included this simple, yet illuminating, line.

What the heck am I, Don Surber, getting in this relationship? I vote Republican and they act against my political interest.

Don was onto something.
