Despite this, one of Brazil's leading polling firms -- Datafolha -- says neither Lula nor Bolsonaro will win tonight, meaning neither will get more than 50% of valid votes. The two will face each other in a run-off. Big disappointment for PT, which was hoping to win tonight.
16h
With 70% of the vote in, Lula takes his first lead of the night over Bolsonaro
16h
Just over 50% of the vote: Lula really closing in on Bolsonaro’s lead now, with still some big pro-Lula states with a lot of votes not yet in:
17h
41% of the vote in: Lula has cut Bolsonaro's lead to just under 3 points: 47-44%. (Note how fast the votes are being counted: only 7:30 pm local time and we're getting to 50% of the votes counted)
17h
20% of the vote total in. Bolsonaro 48-43% over Lula so far. I still think there's more conservative districts/regions in the bigger states counted so far, but we'll see.
17h
PT passou meses gritando "VOTE ÚTIL" para todo mundo. Será interessante ver se a recusa do PT em trocar Ceciliano por Molon, muito depois de ficar claro que só Molon poderia vencer, levará à perda dessa cadeira no Senado do RJ para Romário e bolsonaristas. Ainda é cedo. Vamos ver
18h
Starting to tighten a bit now with 13% of the vote in. Bolsonaro's lead over Lula now less than 5 points.
18h
In Brazil: still early, with 10% of the precincts counted, and lots of progressive regions uncounted, but Bolsonaro has about a 5.5 point lead on Lula:
18h
Election Day in Brazil today: the polls closed at 5 pm local time. The full results will be out and certified tonight. Many elections in the US take weeks or months for there to be a full count. The California primary took months. This can only be purposeful.

The Brazilian firefighter, union leader, evangelical and ex-Congressman @CaboDaciolo was once embraced by the left, but is now vilified by many of them as a "hater," especially of LGBTs. Many vital lessons are here.

To be clear: I loathe this site. After they were censored in 2017, we re-published their article in support. Then they lead the campaign calling for my imprisonment for the reporting we did on the corrupt judge they worship. It's the principle: judicial censorship is dangerous.
22h
As I noted, the NYT ran an article this week on the excesses of the Brazilian Supreme Court: using authoritarian means including censorship to "protect democracy"(ie stop Bolsonaro). Now we have this stunning censorship order on Election Day: nytimes.com/2022/09/26/wor…

This is a center-right/right-wing site: both anti-Bolsonaro and anti-Lula. They're fans of the corrupt Judge who oversaw Lula's now-discredited conviction. They obtained a police audio recording of a major drug lord saying he supports Lula. A Sup Court judge banned the article: twitter.com/claudioedantas…

Here is @ggreenwald talking about US intelligence agency failures eroding trust with Americans, the US government prosecuting whistleblowers, and related topics.

To be a bit clearer: while these polls have Lula winning 50-51% of the valid votes tomorrow, it's within the margin of error for over/under 50%. So it's a bit excessive to say they're predicting a first-round win, only that it's quite possible. Will be close, if they're right.
Several of Brazil's largest and most mainstream polls are predicting not just a victory for Lula tomorrow, but a first-round win: meaning he gets more than 50% of the valid votes and thus avoids the need for a run-off. Like in the US, polling data has been shaky, so we'll see.
This era's most deranged, unhinged and dangerous conspiracy theory didn't come from QAnon, 4Chan or KiwiFarms. It came from NBC, CNN and Dems - led by CIA: Putin seized control of the US through blackmail over Trump, even as Trump assaulted Russia's most vital interests.
Trump did the two most threatening things possible to core Russian interests -- 1) flooded Ukraine with lethal arms and 2) badgered Germany to stop buying gas from Russia -- and never once did the media pause to question their insane conspiracy theory that Putin controlled Trump.
Note that even Obama -- who wanted to imprison Snowden for life and even took down Evo Morales' plane to get him -- admits that Snowden 1) exposed *illegal domestic spying* and 2) fostered vital reforms. That deserves a hero's march down 5th Ave, not life in prison.👇M
Here's the full context of that quote where Obama petulantly whined that our critiques of his War on Terror and surveillance abuses were excessive. But even he claims it lead to reform. I doubt it, but that's my goal, not to befriend political leaders: docs.google.com/viewerng/viewe…
I'm glad our critiques of Obama's War on Terror and surveillance abuses were so much in his head that he started arguing with it unprompted in this post-2016 off-the-record meeting that just leaked. That's the job of journalists: not to serve Presidents but to check them. twitter.com/JoshKraushaar/…

Bizarre to watch. The Hill stumbled by accident into a great and highly popular program - "Rising" - built by @krystalball and @esaagar. Since then, they've done everything to destroy it, from driving that duo away to now firing Katie Halper - an American Jew - for Israel heresy.
A media outlet that pretends to air free debates, but then fires journalists for expressing views disliked by management, isn't about journalism but activism. It shouldn't matter what you think about Israel. It gets billions from the US and @kthalps has the right to debate it. twitter.com/ryangrim/statu…
É fácil na política transformar os outros em desenhos e caricaturas. Agora interagimos pelo mundo com as redes, que nos permitem ver os outros como personagens digitalizados em vez de humanos. A crise da nossa família me ensinou muito, e sou grato ao Cabo por ajudar com isso.
Eu entendo que para a maioria das pessoas esta semana, tudo é sobre política. Não é para mim. Agora me preocupo só com meu marido e família. Não se trata de quem votar. Conheço e tenho um respeito enorme por @alessandromolon. Ele seria um grande senador. Isso não é sobre isso.
Se decidir descartar ou, pior, odiar todos que veem o mundo de forma diferente, está andando em um caminho escuro e vazio, e se privando de oportunidades valiosas. Política importa sim. Mas, *por design*, muitas vezes obscurece a humanidade comum que impulsiona a maioria de nós
Tenho o telefone do David desde que está hospitalizado. Está cheio de mensagens privadas de carinho de pessoas de todos os partidos, de todas as ideologias. Quero dizer: *todos. Tb é meu. As pessoas que enviam essas mensagens não têm nada a ganhar com isso: só decência humana.
Claro que a política importa. Importa muito. É trabalho de David, e meu. Mas se a política leva você a odiar seus vizinhos e todos que veem o mundo de forma diferente - em vez de ficar com raiva dos centros de poder - está desempenhando um papel muito distorcido em sua vida.
Quando David postou 2 fotos com Cabo, foi atacado por pessoas alegando que Daciolo está cheio de "ódio". Muitas deles pareceram cheias de ódio. Tendo visto as ações de Cabo nos momentos mais difíceis para nossa família, eu usaria muitas palavras para ele. "Odioso" é a última.
Muito mais significativo e valioso é o que você faz na vida, como trata os outros, a humanidade que você mostra. As coisas que você faz quando ninguém está olhando refletem muito mais sobre seus valores do que os slogans que canta e as bandeiras que você acena para os outros.
É fácil colocar várias bandeiras e hashtags no seu perfil, ou afirmar que acredita em causas políticas, ou buscar aplausos denunciando publicamente outros como menos esclarecidos do que vc. Essas podem trazer benefícios, mas não refletem muito sobre o caráter de uma pessoa.
Ele fez tudo isso sem buscar qualquer atenção. Ele me disse que não queria nenhuma atenção da mídia, não buscava nenhuma publicidade. Eu estou falando sobre isso por conta própria porque significou muito para mim, e fornece muitas lições sobre como julgamos as outras pessoas.
Desde que David foi internado na UTI há 2 meses, Cabo não parou de ligar para perguntar sobre David, mandar orações, dar conforto. Ele foi para o quarto de David na UTI para orar por David e com ele - inclusive pouco antes a eleição dele. Poucos no mundo político fizeram tanto.
Quero compartilhar uma história sobre @CaboDaciolo. Não tem nada a ver com a eleição. Vote em quem quiser. David e Daciolo só se conheceram há alguns meses, quando se encontraram no mesmo partido. Rapidamente se formaram uma amizade. David falava muito sobre o vínculo deles.
If, after 20 years of this same tactic, you want to keep believing it - to the point of now believing Russia blew up their own pipeline - have at it. Maybe it's worth seeing some proof rather than gullibly believing these same lying "journalists" and CIA sources over and over?
Starring former CIA Director John Brennan and his spokesperson Natasha Bertrand, as usual. How many times did this duo lie over and over during the last 6 years, passing off all sorts of hoaxes - Alfa Bank, Hunter laptop, Havana Syndrome -- as true? The Disinformation Duo. twitter.com/cnni/status/15…
YouTube demonetized TK content today, a video by @0rf. Ironically, it's a compilation of post-2016 election denials, which didn't inspire a content moderation response in real time. But collecting them apparently crosses a line. Thanks, @YouTube. More: taibbi.substack.com/p/youtube-demo…

The problem: there are many Dem and GOP lawmakers serious about limiting Big Tech's power. But the Dems who want to exploit state regulation to foster more censorship and control over the internet create the space that allows Jim Jordan to fear-monger over anti-trust reform.
Follow @matthewstoller today for coverage on debate over the critical anti-trust bill Congress is considering enacting. The politics are fascinating: many Google-funded Dems joining with GOP frauds who pretend to oppose Big Tech but always serve it (Jim Jordan) to stop reform: twitter.com/matthewstoller…
@davidfrum That piece was the low point of your career. It was a vicious and incoherent smear of anyone who opposed your idiotic war. You should hope it fades out of everyone’s memory instead of trying to salvage it.

2002: If you question US Foreign Policy, you're on the side of the Terrorists. 2022: If you question US Foreign Policy, you're on the side of Russia. Both times this came from neocons, now on behalf of Dems. That's why one can discuss this only on Fox: youtube.com/watch?v=iIt6yx…
Note that Frum isn't merely praising himself for this repugnant article that smeared people as anti-American traitors for opposing his Iraq War. He's calling it (and thus himself) "prophetic." In a way, he's right: the most bloodthirsty neocons are now prophets to US liberals.
The dominant theme of US political discourse that neocons manufactured in 2002/3 - when Frum was writing George Bush's deceitful speeches - is now the liberal view: those who question US policy are Russian spies. Thus does Frum proudly promote this filth: nationalreview.com/2003/03/unpatr…
The premise of Frum's article was the neocon refrain: those who oppose US Foreign Policy are on "the other side": i.e. traitors. Such repugnant trash should end a person's career. But Frum knows this is again the prevailing framework: this time among his liberal fan base.
The 2003 article which Frum is boasting about is one where he smeared conservative opponents of the Iraq War -- which Frum played a critical role in selling to the public -- as anti-American traitors. It's important to understand why he's touting such a disgusting article now. twitter.com/davidfrum/stat…
This is the face of authoritarianism - even though it looks different than you were taught to expect. And it's the mindset of tyrants everywhere: This is someone so inebriated by her sense of righteousness and superiority that she views dissent as an evil too dangerous to allow: twitter.com/backtolife_202…
