The contentious Brazilian presidential election of 2022 has been one of the most divisive events in the country's history, pitting far-right candidate Jair Bolsonaro against left-wing former President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva in a hotly contested runoff vote.
In order to prevent any attempts by Bolsonaro to undermine Brazil’s democratic institutions, the Biden regime embarked on a diplomatic mission to warn him against casting doubt on his country’s electoral process. As early as July 2021, just months after taking office, Biden's CIA director William Burns traveled to Brazil to meet with senior officials and issue this warning. Later that month, U.S National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan also visited the country and reinforced this same message during his meetings with Brazilian political leaders. And at the high-level Summit of the Americas meeting held in Los Angeles, Biden himself delivered an emphatic reiteration of Washington's stance on safeguarding democracy and transparency in Brazil's elections.
To further emphasize America's commitment to ensuring fair elections in Brazil, U.S Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin pushed for similar assurances from members of the Brazilian armed forces during one of his visits later that year. This was especially important due to Jair Bolsonaro's past as a former Brazilian Army captain and his subsequent efforts to capitalize on nostalgia for the country’s military dictatorship from 1964 to 1985 during his campaign rallies.
In response to inquiries about their involvement in Brazil's upcoming elections, a spokesperson for the U.S National Security Council stated that “the Biden administration expects all candidates to respect and accept the results of free and fair elections," adding that they are "monitoring these closely" and trusting "in the strength of Brazil’s democratic institutions".
Though it remains unclear how influential American diplomatic pressure has been so far, there are some indicators pointing towards it being effective: Estadao reported earlier this year that U.S pressure may have prompted members of the Brazilian armed forces not to back any unfounded claims by Bolsonaro regarding electoral fraud in round one, though this was denied by them shortly thereafter. According to sociologist Rubens Ricupero Abramovay, it is likely that Washington had an effect on their decision making process since “it’s really hard for the Brazilian military to imagine support for any anti-democratic adventure without U.S support".
As we bear witness yet again to another international incident caused by Joe Biden and US foreign policy, namely "the worst communist takeover ever" unfolding in South America - it is critical that we remember this was all part of their plan all along; one which has gone largely unreported or ignored by Western media outlets who continue instead with badmouthing President Bolsonaro instead of those responsible, namely those within The Deep State and our own government apparatus under Joe Biden himself whose actions brought us here today.
