Declare victory and refuse to leave office. Keep on the move as they will try to assassinate you.
Immediately share all claims of election fraud; the bribes, the Supreme Court shenanigans, etc. Lay out a case that the election was stolen and Lula “won” only in the largest and most corrupt state.
Immediately convene a tribunal. This tribunal will be extra-judicial and composed of members who could be considered fair and would be respected. I don’t say impartial because it is important that they will indict and convict Lula and his cronies.
Immediately arrest Lula, his supporters, his cronies, and his enablers. Get the big fish in handcuffs, guarded by the loyal military. Round as a many up as you can and keep others from fleeing to be martyrs internationally.
As soon as possible, have the tribunal try Lula and his supporters. Quick hearings meant to display the guilt, corruption, fraud, and evil plans they had to Brazil and the world. None of them get off easy; this isn’t so much a trial as it is a condemnation of them and what they’ve done and would do. Ignore international and leftist accusations of a show trial; you’re only doing what they would eventually do to you.
Expel any international diplomats or organizations that did or would collude with Lula to institute globohomo.
Execute Lula and the other major leftists like those on the Supreme Court. Be judicious with the executions but realize that only with these people dead are you safe. Jail the smaller fish for life in a very secure, very loyal military prison in the middle of nowhere. Confiscate the assets of the corrupt people and organizations. Permanently end and ban the corrupt organizations.
The proles and the gangs will riot in the most corrupt areas. Send the military out to suppress these insurrections with massive force. Show no mercy, give no quarter. End the gangs and cartels once and for all. No half-measures.
In the meantime, let the rest of the country run as normally as possible. Murder your wife? The judicial process hasn’t changed. This will create confidence that this is only temporary. Once the political crisis has been calmed down, except for certain anti-insurgency measures against the gangs, go back to business as normal, but with the entire country and world aware that Brazil won’t go for the neo-commie globohomo crap.
Will this happen? Most assuredly not. Very few people in history have successfully had the stones to do anything like this. Pinochet didn’t go all the way and is now gone, with Chile gone socialist for good. Franco saved Spain, but look at Europe now.
The world is running down. Evil will have a temporary victory as communism takes over the West and an Islamic caliphate rises in the Middle East. America will be taken out of the global picture by civil war, nuclear war, or an economic collapse and the rest of the world will start falling apart. At some point, the Antichrist will rise in the Middle East, the Great Tribulation will happen, and Jesus will return. Only then will the world be at peace and the evildoers dead. Buckle up people, it’s gonna be a bumpy ride, but the destination is an eternal paradise and utopia (for real this time).
