The counter coup begins in Brazil

Updated: Aug 3, 2023

The Brazilian military has begun operations to save the country from a communist coup.

Three drug lords linked to Lula da Silva were taken out Thursday night. Judge Sebastião Coelho called for the arrest of corrupt Chief Justice Alexandre de Moraes before the Senate.

In an unusual move for the military, the army has entered the favelas of Rio de Janeiro and killed leaders of the Comando Vermelho (Red Command) drug cartel, which supports convicted communist Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva.

Observers take this as an indication of the beginning of a military intervention in Brazil. The drug gangs were the only ones celebrating the alleged election victory of criminal Lula on Oct. 30, firing assault weapons into the air in the favelas. President Bolsonaro has cracked down on Brazilian drug gangs.

"The drug lords of Morro do Juramento and Juramentinho, Rodrigo Barbosa Marinho, known as Rolinha or Titio Rolinha, and Hevelton Nascimento Júnior, the "bad boy," were killed during a military police operation in Vicente de Carvalho," O Dia reports. Three other suspects died in the operation and one, who was also injured, is in pre-trial detention in the hospital."

The drug cartels are the armed arm of the Communists. Comando Vermelho controls parts of Rio de Janeiro and was formed in 1979 as an alliance between the cartels and the Communists. If they are eliminated, the risk of civil war will be greatly reduced.

The corrupt Supreme Electoral Court moved up the date for certifying the elections a week to Dec. 12. Observers believe that the pro-Lula court wants to create facts in order to install their candidate, Lula da Silva. It is possible that even the confirmation of the disputed election will be moved up to this week. Lula's inauguration is scheduled for Jan. 1, 2023.

This puts pressure on the military high command to act quickly. Speaking to Steve Bannon, Brazil Observer Matt Tyrmand pointed out.

In a speech to the Brazilian Senate, retired regional election judge Sebastião Coelho again called for the arrest of corrupt Chief Justice Alexandre de Moraes, Lula's handler in the alleged election fraud.

Coelho said he withdrew from office Aug. 19 to protest Moraes, who "is waging war against his country. But I believe the Brazilian people will win." Moraes "is committing crimes," Coelho said. "Every illegal decision he makes is a crime." Moraes had given Coelho 3 days to withdraw his call for the chief justice's arrest, "but I reiterate this call!" said Coelho to a standing ovation.

"The Brazilian people are the victims of a coup by the Supreme Court," Coelho said. "That's why the president must apply Article 142 of the Constitution so that the armed forces can act. This will be presented as a coup, but it is actually a counter-coup."

Brazilian indigenous people are also protesting the fraud, claiming there were zero votes from indigenous areas for Bolsonaro.
