Brazil’s “very patriotic” military is reportedly on standby and “just waiting” for President Jair Bolsonaro to “give the order” to “restore law and order” in the embattled nation.
As Slay News has been reporting, Brazilians have been flooding the streets in protest over the country’s controversial presidential election.
Incumbent President Bolsonaro and his party have been attempting to annul the election amid allegations of voter fraud.
Since the runoff election on October 30th in Brazil, Brazilians have been protesting on the streets daily.
The election was “won” by Bolsonaro’s far-left socialist challenger Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva but the victory is widely believed to be the result of voter fraud.
Lula is Brazil’s former president and a convicted criminal who was previously jailed for fraud.
He was only released from prison on a technicality and has never been cleared of the fraud charges.
As Slay News previously reported, Brazil’s military has warned that “possible fraud” may have influenced the country’s controversial presidential election.
The Armed Forces of Brazil has been investigating the election following widespread allegations of fraud.
Following an audit of the election results, the military concluded that there was a “possible security risk” in the country’s voting system.
In a statement, the Defense Ministry emphasized that its report had not “excluded the possibility of fraud.”
As people have been protesting in the streets daily since the election, Brazilian truckers have also started blockading roads and ports.

Meanwhile, a federal judge has been forced to step down over an alleged conversation with Bolsonaro that was leaked to the media.
In a voice message published by columnist Mônica Bergamo, Judge Augusto Nardes of the Federal Court of Accounts (TCU) allegedly was discussing a military coup with Bolsonaro.
In the recording, Nardes said he has “a lot of information” about “strong movement in the (Army) barracks.”
Nardes allegedly said, “that (there will be) a very strong outcome in the nation, unpredictable … in a matter of hours, days, at most, a week, two, maybe less.”
Someone had reportedly forwarded a WhatsApp message from the Judge to Bergamo.
The call was interpreted as referring to the potential preparation of a military coup to prevent the presidential inauguration of convicted Communist criminal Lula in January.
Judge Augusto Nardes has since announced his resignation over the leaked call.
The head of the Bolsonaro-allied Liberal Party (PL) Valdemar da Costa Neto will hold a press conference today at 4 pm Eastern to propose a review of all ballots used in this year’s election.
A study by the Instituto Voto Legal concluded that it was impossible to “validate the results generated in all electronic voting machines of models 2009, 2010, 2011, 2013 and 2015.”
“We don’t want new elections, we are not going to propose that, we don’t want to disturb the life of the country,” Costa Neto said.
“But there are some electronic voting machines that have to be reviewed and we are going to propose this to the Superior Electoral Court next Tuesday…
“From the study we did, there are several ballot boxes that cannot be considered valid.
“It’s all over Brazil, from 2020 onwards.
“They all have the same number of ballots.
“There’s no way to validate this.
“We have the proof and we are going to show that these ballot boxes cannot be considered.
“Let’s see what the TSE will solve.”
Approximately 250,000 electronic voting machines had problems, according to Costa Neto.
According to O Antagonista, the PL has applied to the Electoral Court to recognize that President Bolsonaro received 51% of the vote.

Far-left Supreme Court Judge Alexandre de Moraes, who is frequently accused of corruption, has filed to have Minister of Defense General Paulo Sergio Nogueira deposed for issuing his election report as required by law.
De Moraes is also head of the Superior Electoral Court TSE and, therefore, responsible for any instances of fraud that may have occurred in the Brazilian elections.
Meanwhile, reported are emerging that Brazil’s military is preparing to step in to resolve the crisis.
Speaking to Brannon Howse on Frank Speech, Brazilian Journalist Allan Dos Santos revealed that the Brazilian military is “just waiting for Bolsonaro to give the order to arrest (Judge Alexandre de) Moraes and restore law and order.”
Dos Santos said that Jair Bolsonaro, his son Eduardo and family are “in danger.”
However, he says the military is “very patriotic and not in the hands of the Communists yet.”
Speaking to Journalist Matthew Tyrmand on War Room, Steve Bannon called the protests in Brazil “the largest pro-democracy protests in history.”
Tyrmand shared a video of voting machines being illegally removed ahead of a potential recount:
Hey 🇧🇷, are those voting machines being moved on a Sunday afternoon in São Paulo? Isn’t 🇧🇷law that machines cannot be moved for 60 days post election? Seems curious…wonder what the @STF_oficial @TSEjusbr @alexandre have to say about this?🤔 pic.twitter.com/0akS8jL6k9

In a separate interview, Matt Tyrmand accused the global media of a coverup over the situation.
He said media outlets are refusing to cover the New York protests against the corrupt Brazilian Supreme Court judges:

Brazilian journalist Paula Schmitt warns that there is a major collusion effort between Lula and the Supreme Court:
