The political party of Brazil President Jair Bolsonaro has filed a complaint with authorities related to the results of the recent election in the country.
The far-left Mainstream Media in the US reports on the election results in Brazil as if they have a stake in the game for the socialist party. Socialist Lula, was reported as the winner in the country’s election but the people will not let it stand.
Millions of people in the country have come out to protest the stolen election there. The military is on the side of the people as well as the police.

BRASILIA — Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro has challenged the election he lost last month to leftist rival Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, arguing votes from some machines should be “invalidated” in a complaint that election authorities met with initial skepticism.
Bolsonaro’s claim seems unlikely to get far, as Lula’s victory has been ratified by the Superior Electoral Court (TSE) and acknowledged by Brazil’s leading politicians and international allies. Still, it could fuel a small but committed protest movement that has so far refused to accept the result.
Alexandre de Moraes, the Supreme Court justice who currently leads the TSE, said in a ruling seen by Reuters that Bolsonaro’s right-wing electoral coalition, which filed the complaint, must present its full audit for both rounds of last month’s vote within 24 hours, or he would reject it.
Brazil’s currency deepened losses after news of the electoral complaint, closing 1.3% weaker against the US dollar. The currency was already suffering from investor concerns about Lula’s spending plans and economic policymakers.
