Far from the debates and the streets because of the attack suffered in September, Jair Bolsonaro (PSL) compared his lack of freedom to judge Sergio Moro’s, who allegedly cannot walk the streets safely. At the same time, on social media, a general close to the candidate again warned of the possibility of electoral fraud. Desperately in need of votes and struggling to distance himself from Lula’s image, Fernando Haddad (PT) did not visit his political godfather for the first time since he became PT’s official candidate. Near Curitiba, authorities look for a thief. Not because he stole a gas cylinder, but because he might have gotten infected with deadly diseases.

In a live broadcast on social media, the candidate and former captain Jair Bolsonaro (PSL) compared himself to judge Sérgio Moro for not being able to walk freely. “He [Sérgio Moro] is less free than someone using an ankle monitor,” he said. Following Trump’s steps, Bolsonaro uses bravado to conquer voters. Meanwhile, General Paulo Chagas, an officer close to Bolsonaro, said that “if the next polls show any drastic change, it might be a sign of fraud.”

Journalist’s disappearance reveals the dark side of Saudi Arabia’s Monarchy
Jamal Khashoggi’s disappearance may bring about a diplomatic crisis like no other among the historically allied United States and Saudi Arabia. More than that, the journalist’s murder, if confirmed, can reveal the dark side of the Arabian absolutist regime to the world.
