Confused by Sidney Powell’s ‘Kraken’? One Blogger Simplifies it all in Graphics

If legal lingo confounds you, or you are like so many millions of Americans today and just do not have the attention span required to plow your way through it all, or you are just a dadgum visual learner like I am, you have likely been waiting for someone, anyone, to boil Sidney Powell’s “Kraken” lawsuit in Georgia down into a format that allows you to grasp exactly how overwhelming and legally powerful it really is.

Riding in on a white horse comes a guy named Doug Ross, who publishes an excellent daily blog of his own. Mr. Ross has applied his keen analytical skills and taken the time needed to boil the Kraken down into a series of graphics that even an old visual learner like yours truly can easily grasp.

Here are a couple of examples:

In all, Ross boils the essence of the Kraken down into 9 compelling and frankly overwhelming graphic slides.

Follow this link and go read and absorb the rest of them. If after doing so you still do not understand why the Democrats and their corrupt media toadies are investing so much time and energy in smearing Powell and her effort here, well, I don’t know what else to say to you.

The Kraken is very real and should be taken very seriously.

Stay tuned.

That is all.

Friday News Roundup: Justice Barrett Renders John Roberts Irrelevant as Sidney Powell Unleashes the Kraken

The Amy Coney Barrett confirmation is already yielding dividends. – In yet another decision in which compromised Chief Justice John Roberts sided with the three communists in the court, Justice Amy Coney Barrett provided the winning margin in a decision that tosses out some of Andrew Cuomo’s draconian attacks in religious freedoms in the state of New York.

Justice Barrett also was able to author the majority, 5-4 decision that rolls back Cuomo’s absurd restrictions that limits church attendance to as few as 10 people in certain parts of the state.

From a story at Daily Wire:

In a 5-4 ruling late Wednesday night, the Supreme Court backed a religious challenge to Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s restrictions limiting attendance at religious services. The majority ruling blocks enforcement of the restrictions while the applicants pursue appellate review. The ruling highlights the lack of evidence that the applicants — the Roman Catholic Diocese of Brooklyntwo Jewish synagogues, and an Orthodox Jewish organization — have contributed to the spread of the virus and questions the rationale of the specifics of Cuomo’s restrictions, which limited services to just 10 and 25 occupants for red and orange zones, respectively.

“Not only is there no evidence that the applicants have contributed to the spread of COVID–19 but there are many other less restrictive rules that could be adopted to minimize the risk to those attending religious services,” the decision reads. “Among other things, the maximum attendance at a religious service could be tied to the size of the church or synagogue. Almost all of the 26 Diocese churches immediately affected by the Executive Order can seat at least 500 people, about 14 can accommodate at least 700, and 2 can seat over 1,000. Similarly, Agudath Israel of Kew Garden Hills can seat up to 400. It is hard to believe that admitting more than 10 people to a 1,000–seat church or 400–seat synagogue would create a more serious health risk than the many other activities that the State allows.”

“Members of this Court are not public health experts, and we should respect the judgment of those with special expertise and responsibility in this area,” the ruling asserts. “But even in a pandemic, the Constitution cannot be put away and forgotten. The restrictions at issue here, by effectively barring many from attending religious services, strike at the very heart of the First Amendment’s guarantee of religious liberty. Before allowing this to occur, we have a duty to conduct a serious examination of the need for such a drastic measure.”

“The applicants have made the showing needed to obtain relief, and there is no reason why they should bear the risk of suffering further irreparable harm in the event of another reclassification,” the ruling concludes. “For these reasons, we hold that enforcement of the Governor’s severe restrictions on the applicants’ religious services must be enjoined.”

[End]

Glorious. God Bless Donald Trump, Mitch McConnell and the majority in the U.S. Senate for confirming this good woman to the Court in the face of so much media news-fakery and hostility. Once again, we see perhaps the lone good reason to continue voting for RINOs over their communist Democrat opponents. This is one of the few places it still truly matters.

The Kraken is released! – Sidney Powell released her Kraken on Wednesday evening – a lawsuit detailing allegations of massive election fraud in Georgia and Michigan – and the book burners at Twitter immediately blocked any tweets linking to the lawsuit’s text.

So, just for fun, here’s a link to the text of the complaint. 

Many idiots in the media slammed Powell for not including her “evidence” supporting the claims made in the complaint, demonstrating conclusively that they have no clue about the difference between a complaint, which lays out allegations of harm, and a trial, where evidences supporting the veracity of the allegations is actually rolled out by plaintiffs. But hey, this is just par for the course for our corrupt national news media.

Here’s an excerpt from a story at Breitbart:

Attorney Sidney Powell filed lawsuits Wednesday challenging the results of the presidential vote in Georgia and Michigan, alleging “ballot stuffing,” which she alleges was “amplified and rendered virtually invisible by computer software created and run by domestic and foreign actors.”

Powell made similar claims last week at a press conference with President Donald Trump’s legal team. She was attacked by critics who claimed that she could not prove what she alleged. The legal team distanced themselves from her on Sunday, saying that her claims had gone beyond the evidence they had seen or could prove in court.

Powell — who also defended Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, pardoned by President Trump on Wednesday — accepted the decision but pressed ahead regardless.

She alleges in Georgia:

Mathematical and statistical anomalies rising to the level of impossibilities, as shown by affidavits of multiple witnesses, documentation, and expert testimony evince this scheme across the state of Georgia. Especially egregious conduct arose in Forsyth, Paulding, Cherokee, Hall, and Barrow County. This scheme and artifice to defraud affected tens of thousands of votes in Georgia alone and “rigged” the election in Georgia for Joe Biden.

Powell makes similar allegations in Michigan, noting an “especially egregious range of conduct in Wayne County and the City of Detroit, though this conduct occurred throughout the State at the direction of Michigan state election officials.”

Powell traces the fraud to “software and hardware from Dominion Voting Systems Corporation,” which she said derives from software created by “Smartmatic Corporation, which became Sequoia in the United States.”

She goes on to allege, in both the Georgia and the Michigan complaints, “Smartmatic and Dominion were founded by foreign oligarchs and dictators to ensure computerized ballot-stuffing and vote manipulation to whatever level was needed to make certain Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez never lost another election.”

[End]

So, a lot of the same stuff Powell has been alleging for a couple of weeks now, but this time in formal court filing that will ultimately lead to her having to present her evidence soon enough. She will certainly have plenty to present and talk about given that the lawsuit contains 30 separate allegations of fraud in Georgia alone.

Cool.

This should be epic. – Adding to the Georgia fun, President Trump told the assembled communist Democrat activists who call themselves the White House Press Corps that he will be holding a rally in that state on December 5:

As the Fox News chyron indicates, the President made that announcement as he criticized RINO Georgia Sec. of State Brad Raffensperger, who continues to to oppose the conduct of a real audit of the ballots allegedly cast by legal and living people in Fulton County. So odd that he would be so virulently against such a standard and innocuous election security procedure, isn’t it?

You can bet Raffensperger is all lawyered-up and anxiously waiting to see what Powell’s evidence is going to reveal about his own actions related to the November 3 election.

This is a long, long way from over, folks.

That is all.

PA Judge Halts Election Certification; Trump Pardons Flynn

Some huge news developments as we move into Thanksgiving eve…

First, President Donald Trump (I still never tire of typing those three glorious words) issued a full pardon to General Mike Flynn this afternoon:

Jonathan Turley assessed the situation correctly:

Now, Flynn attorney Sidney Powell can devote her every waking hour to proving that the 2020 presidential election was stolen.

Speaking of Democrat election fraud… – We’ve had some developments on that front as well today. From the legislative hearing in Pennsylvania, where President Trump himself testified by phone:

While all of this was happening, a Pennsylvania judge ordered efforts to certify the election results in the state to halt pending an evidentiary hearing to be held on Friday:

So, lots of good stuff happening today, the day before Thanksgiving.

Just more things to be thankful for on Thursday.

That is all.

Wednesday News Roundup: Raffensperger and Kemp Still Obstructing Election Fraud Audit in Georgia

This election was stolen. That becomes increasingly clear with every passing day. How it was stolen varies from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, but a couple of common denominators are clear:

– The presence of Dominion systems; and

– Control of the process by Democrat election officials in big cities like Atlanta, Detroit, Philadelphia and Milwaukee.

The state-level elecion officials are also Democrats in every state under scrutiny save Georgia, where nominal Republican Sec. State Brad Raffensperger was in control and nominal Republican Gov. Brian Kemp appears to have also been involved. Even today, more than three weeks after Election Day came and went, Raffensperger and Kemp are refusing to allow a real audit of the ballots and especially of the mail-in ballots that were so easily defrauded in all of these big cities.

President Trump, whose legal team appeared to have reached a deal with Gov. Kemp to have the mail-in ballot envelopes audited for proper signatures early this week, expressed his frustration that Raffensperger is still obstructing any such audit last night:

Why is Raffensperger obstructing such an elemental process of ensuring any election was fairly decided? It’s a good question, but one that was answered this morning by Anne Christine-Hoff, writing this morning at the American Thinker.

Here’s an excerpt from that excellent analysis:

There is an explosive investigation in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution (AJC) regarding the Dominion Voting Machines (DVM) and Brad Raffensperger’s role in easing the security surrounding those machines. According to the AJC, in October the Secretary of State’s office was responsible for weakening the system’s defenses, disabling password protections on a key component that controls who is allowed to vote.

Just days before the early voting started, on October 12th, according to the AJC, Raffensperger’s office “pushed out new software to each of the state’s 30,000 voting machines through hundreds of thumb-drives that experts say are prone to infection with malware.”

According to the article, the features that make this new software vulnerable to hacking would “not be detected without an audit after the election.” The software has a feature where voters verify their selections as a paper ballot and then the ballot is fed into an optical scanner by an election official. For reasons that are difficult to understand, the scanner doesn’t record the text of the ballot. Instead, it reads “an unencrypted quick response” or QR barcode that is indecipherable to the human eye.

That feature, according to the AJC, makes it possible either to tamper with individual voting machines or to infiltrate the state’s central election theory. In theory, hackers could alter the barcodes to change votes and there would be no way to detect the changes.

What was the purpose of this software update? Why did Governor Kemp and Secretary of State Raffensperger spend more than $100 million of taxpayer money to roll out the Dominion voting software at the same time that the Texas’ Secretary of State’s office released a report saying that the machines were vulnerable to manipulation?

Powerful people in Georgia must have really wanted the DVS machines, since the DVS machines were rushed out in Georgia despite multiple objections that there was not enough time for a complete overhaul of the voting system before the March 24 presidential primary. According to the AJC, the rollout in Georgia was “the largest rollout of election equipment in US history.”

[End]

Oh.

Sidney Powell, who has gone out of her way to outright accuse both Raffensperger and Kemp of personally benefitting financially from this rushed adoption of Dominion Systems tech, says she will file her lawsuit in the state of Georgia as soon as today:

Stay tuned. This should be very, very interesting.

Meanwhile, in Michigan… – Another witness came forward with compelling testimony of her personally observing Detroit election workers manually overwriting Trump votes to change them to Biden votes:

Oh.

Then there’s this in Wisconsin:

From the story at JustTheNews:

The national conservative group Amistad Project filed an emergency petition Tuesday with the Wisconsin Supreme Court challenging the state’s unofficial results in the 2020 presidential election, saying it has identified over 150,000 potentially fraudulent ballots.

Results from the Nov. 3 balloting in the state show Democratic candidate Joe Biden defeated President Trump by a roughly 20,000-vote margin.

Phill Kline, director of the Amistad Project of the Thomas More Society, said the number of potentially fraudulent ballots identified are “more than enough to call into question the validity of the state’s reported election results.”

[End]

Oh.

And this happened in Nevada:

Thus, things continue to roll along in the Trump effort to expose the Great Election Theft Caper of 2020.

 

In other news… – Our award for Lack of Self-Awareness for the Year 2020 goes to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo for this little gem:

You just could never make this stuff up, folks.

ummmmm…doesn’t he have his own governors to thank for this?

Why yes, yes he does. But you’ll never see the corrupt hacks at Politico report that truth, because the truth is not what they or any of their counterparts at other national media outlets do.

Speaking of corrupt media hacks… – Jonathan Swan over at Axios says he has a scoop, one that would actually be received by Trump supporters as great news.

Excerpt:

President Trump has told confidants he plans to pardon his former national security adviser Michael Flynn, who pleaded guilty in December 2017 to lying to the FBI about his Russian contacts, two sources with direct knowledge of the discussions tell Axios.

Behind the scenes: Sources with direct knowledge of the discussions said Flynn will be part of a series of pardons that Trump issues between now and when he leaves office.

The big picture: Flynn’s pardon would be the culmination of a four-year political and legal saga that began with the FBI’s investigation into possible coordination between the Trump campaign and the Russian government in the 2016 election.

[End]

If true, this would be an action that is long overdue, something the President should have done way back in May when it became obvious to everyone involved that Judge Emmet Sullivan is a corrupt sleazeball who was just trying to delay any decision in the case until after Election Day.

But hey, better late than never.

And then there’s this bit of unintentional hilarity from reliable old hack Andrea Mitchell:

Holy crap.

Saturday News Roundup: Tucker Carlson Backs Down in his Bruhaha with Sidney Powell

Tucker Carlson did a little crawfishing last night. – After being raked over the coals by his viewers for his attack on Sidney Powell in his Thursday monologue, Fox host Tucker Carlson took a minute on Friday to try to avoid losing half of his audience:

Only time will tell if he succeeded or not.

But let’s all admit that Carlson is absolutely 100% correct about one thing: Sidney Powell had better be able to clearly and unambiguously back up her consistent claim that Dominion/Smartmatic software was manipulated to switch millions of Trump votes to Biden when these cases go to court in the coming two weeks. She has made this claim so frequently now that any judge she goes in front of is going to be very curious to see if she can back it up.

And “proof” cannot simply be an affidavit from or testimony by some former employee, which is what Powell consistently refers to whenever she is questioned about this. She will need to have first-hand, real documentary evidence to back up any verbal claim from any witness. If she does not have that, then she should not have been out there making this claim in ever press appearance she has made over the past two weeks.

Let’s also note, however, that Powell has also consistently said that she never makes a claim publicly that she cannot prove in court, and her outstanding track record as a lawyer supports that statement. As I discussed yesterday, no good lawyer is ever going to reveal her full case publicly in advance of trial, and Powell is a very, very good lawyer. So there is every reason to be optimistic where this is concerned.

Thus, in this ongoing conflict between Carlson and Powell, I feel very strongly both ways.

This happened on Friday:

From the report at JustTheNews:

The Trump campaign is bringing “legitimate accusations” to court through affidavits of credible witnesses and other evidence used in its challenges to electoral outcomes in various states, Federal Election Commission Chairman Trey Trainor said.

Trainor said his review of evidence, including numerous affidavits claiming voter fraud and a sworn statement by a prominent mathematician flagging up to 100,000 Pennsylvania ballots, met the first level of legal scrutiny under what’s known as motion to dismiss or “Rule 12(b)(6)” of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, which would dismiss less credible claims.

Noting the subsequent legal threshold beyond a “motion to dismiss” is the “summary judgment phase,” Trainor said that under this phase, the credibility of witnesses is presumed to be accurate, especially given the caliber of the testimonies Trainor has observed to date.

“When considering a motion for summary judgment, a judge will view all evidence in the light most favorable to the movant’s opponent,” explains Cornell University Law School’s Legal Information Institute website.

“What I would be concerned with, if I were on the other side of these election contests that are going on around the country, is that if you look at the level of evidence that has been provided by these affidavits — hundreds of affidavits that corroborate events that have happened on the ground — in a summary judgment phase of these cases, you have to take the evidence of the plaintiff as being true,” Trainor told “Just the News AM” television show Friday morning.

[End]

Oh.

This also happened on Friday:

From the story at JustTheNews:

Dominion Voting Systems backed out on Thursday night of a commitment to attend an oversight hearing before Pennsylvania’s State Government Committee and instead “lawyered up,” says a Pennsylvania lawmaker.

Dominion has been frequently cited by President Trump’s legal team, which is working to audit and perhaps overturn results in several states that have declared Democrat Joe Biden the winner.

Earlier on Thursday, before Dominion backed out of the Pennsylvania hearing, Trump attorney Sidney Powell made some very strong allegations against the company.

She stated that the company was “created in Venezuela at the direction of Hugo Chavez to make sure he never lost an election after one constitutional referendum came out the way he did not want it to come out. We have one very strong witness who has explained how it all works. His affidavit is attached to the pleadings of Lin Wood in the lawsuit he filed in Georgia.”

[End]

If Dominion disputes Powell’s claims and has nothing to hide, why is the company hiding? If you were a company CEO and you saw a high-profile lawyer for the President of the United States out there making all sorts of claims about your company that you consider to be false and damaging, wouldn’t you literally leap at any opportunity to get out there and tell your story, especially an opportunity to testify in front of a panel of key policymakers?

It is frankly stunning and damning that Dominion cancelled this appearance at the last minute.

Hey, maybe this had something to do with it. – Also on Friday, the Kirkland & Ellis law firm backed out of its representation of Pennsylvania’s corrupt Democrat Secretary of State in the matter:

Kind of makes you wonder, doesn’t it?

This also happened on Friday:

Take a look at the justices who now will have jurisdiction over appeals from the states of Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Georgia. These assignments, by the way, are made by Chief Justice John Roberts in consultation with each justice about their preferences and areas of expertise. The associate justice with jurisdiction will have the first say about whether any appeals from that state should be heard by the full court.

Stay tuned.

In other news, here is the edict that Minnesotans got from their corrupt communist Democrat Governor on what was Day 250 of “15 Days to Flatten the Curve”:

Lovely, isn’t it? Quit electing Democrats, Minnesotans, and stuff like this will stop happening to you.

Writing at The Federalist, Joy Pullmann has a terrific piece detailing how controversial presidential advisor Scott Atlas has been right about everything related to the China Virus, which is why the corrupt news media and Democrats are so focused on destroying him.

Here’s an excerpt from that piece:

Because he has courageously presented evidence that gums up the media’s goal of ending Trump’s presidency by using coronavirus to punish Americans, the knives have been out for the views Atlas represents since the beginning.

Atlas is not at all alone in professional skepticism about the value of extended lockdowns, cloth masks, and obsessing about case counts as opposed to hospitalizations and deaths. So far, more than 12,000 medical and public health scientists and more than 35,000 medical professionals from around the world have signed the Great Barrington Declaration that summarizes this advocacy of “focused protection.”

Atlas is just a prominent face for this view that the power-hungry elites need to crush to avoid responsibility for their horrifically bad leadership during the COVID outbreak, as well as to get Trump. So they seek to destroy him because he and the scientific coalition he represents makes it clear that these public health emperors may have plenty of masks, but no clothes.

Thus YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook have repeatedly banned or slapped warnings on Atlas’s statements and all scientific evidence that might support the Great Barrington view. This week a former Obama official called for Atlas’s medical license to be revoked for the crime of practicing science.

Friday News Roundup: Giuliani and Powell Press Conference – Mission Accomplished

The media is very, very worried, and it shows. – Rudy Giuliani’s hair dye ran down his face as he sweated through yesterday’s Democrat election fraud press conference, and that’s all the corrupt news media wants to talk about related to that event. Which means that the corrupt news media is really, really concerned about the substance of what Giuliani, Sidney Powell, Jenna Ellis and the other attorneys who participated had to say.

Rudy Giuliani gives voting fraud 'evidence' at odd press conference | Daily  Mail Online

This is Liberal Media Distraction 101: When you don’t want to report on the substance, find a distraction from it. It’s what they do.

But that’s ok, because the press conference achieved exactly what it was designed to achieve.

The strength of the presser yesterday is that it succeeded in creating a broader dissemination and awareness of the allegations of massive Democrat election fraud in several states among the general public. Achieving that, of course, was the main reason for conducting it, given that the lawyers knew going in that they would receive a 100% hostile reception from the Democrat-activist-pretend-journalists who showed up.

The media hates Giuliani for his fierce defense of President Trump against the Mueller thugs and the Democrat impeachment hoax, and for his forcing of the Hunter Biden laptop into the public domain. These actions are all cardinal sins in their eyes, given they all harmed the media’s Democrat Party benefactors.

Giuliani is thus Public Enemy #2 – second to the bad Orange Man in the White House, of course – in the media’s collective, myopic eyes, and anything he has to say is to be dismissed out of hand and ridiculed in the coarsest manner possible on CNN and MSNBC. Thus, Rudy dyes his hair – just as pretty much 100% of the preening media jackasses themselves do on a regular basis – and that is the object of ridicule, the means of distraction from the substance of what was discussed on Thursday.

The media also detests Sidney Powell, because she has spent the preponderance of the last two years defending a true American hero, General Mike Flynn, against the brutal abuse of the U.S. Department of Justice and the utterly corrupt federal judge in his case. This again is a cardinal sin in the media’s eyes, given that even Flynn’s original law firm was in on the fix against him, and the media thought they had him in the bag until Powell came along and spoiled the whole deal.

Even Tucker Carlson went off on Powell during his monologue last night, whining about the fact that she refuses to reveal her entire case to the producers of his Fox News show.

Here’s an excerpt:

On Sunday night, “Tucker Carlson Tonight” texted her after watching one of her segments. What Powell was describing would amount to the single greatest crime in American history. Millions of votes stolen in a day, democracy destroyed, the end of our centuries-old system of self-government. Not a small thing.

Now, to be perfectly clear, we did not dismiss any of it. We don’t dismiss anything anymore, particularly when it’s related to technology. We’ve talked to too many Silicon Valley whistleblowers and we’ve seen too much after four years on the air.  We literally do UFO segments, not because we’re crazy or even been interested in the subject, but because there is evidence that UFOs are real and everyone lies about it.

There’s evidence that a lot of things that responsible people dismiss out of hand as ridiculous are in fact real. The louder the Yale political science department and the staff of The Atlantic magazine scream “conspiracy theory,” the more interested we tend to be. That’s usually a sign you’re over the target. A lot of people with impressive-sounding credentials in this country are frauds. They have no idea what they’re doing. They’re children posing as authorities. And when they’re caught, they lie and then they blame you for it. We see that every day. It’s the central theme of our show and will continue to be.

So that’s a long way of saying we took Sidney Powell seriously with no intention of fighting with her. We’ve always respected her work, we simply wanted to see the details. How could you not want to see them? So we invited Sydney Powell on the show. We would have given her the whole hour. We would have given her the entire week, actually, and listened quietly the whole time at rapt attention.

But she never sent us any evidence, despite a lot of polite requests. When we kept pressing, she got angry and told us to stop contacting her. When we checked with others around the Trump campaign, people in positions of authority, they also told us Powell had never given them any evidence to prove anything she claimed today at the press conference.

Powell did say that electronic voting is dangerous, and she’s right, but she never demonstrated that a single actual vote was moved illegitimately by software from one candidate to another. Not one.

[End]

Understand that Sidney Powell and Rudy Giuliani are very smart and experienced lawyers. Giuliani is the former U.S. Attorney that brought down the New York City mob families, for crying out loud. Never during the long, highly-complex cases he took to court under the then-new RICO laws did he reveal all of his evidence to the defense during a press conference. That’s not something any intelligent lawyer does.

Sidney Powell spent 1o years as an assistant U.S. Attorney herself. During that time, she successfully prosecuted Texas mobster Jimmy Chagra, whose family commissioned the hit on Federal Judge John Wood by Charles Harrelson. For the last 25 years she has been an incredibly successful appellate lawyer practicing in the federal courts. Again, not once has she ever revealed her entire case to the other side during a press conference or on a Fox News talking head show.

Why? Because she, like Giuliani, knows what she’s doing. Carlson knows this: Thus, the motivation for his monologue last night is fairly mysterious, and should probably be viewed in the context of Fox’s overall rapid shift to the political left.

Yesterday’s press conference was pure legal theater, designed to accomplish exactly what it achieved: To make this subject the prevailing topic of conversation across all social media platforms, and to raise public awareness of the nature of the charges the team will be making in court.

Even with Rudy’s hair dye streaming down his cheeks, Mission Accomplished.

Now, the hard work of actually convincing judges must begin in earnest, and it better happen fast.

That is all.

Wednesday News Roundup: Another GOP Surrender in Wayne County, Michigan

Republicans everywhere just keep surrendering. But hey, that’s just what they do. – We’ve discussed the situation with the Maginot Line Republicans in Georgia who have not only stopped fighting for fair and valid elections in their state, but are actually throwing their lot in with the Democrats there.

Yesterday provided us with yet another example of this kind of Vichy GOP worthlessness in Wayne County, Michigan, home of Detroit, one of five cities in all of America in which Joe Biden somehow “out-performed” Hillary Clinton on November 3. There, the Wayne County Board of Canvassers, which consists of 2 Republicans and 2 Democrats, failed to certify the election results due to the fact that the number of votes counted did not come close to matching the number of people who signed into vote. Which is sort of bound to happen in a county where a 2 a.m. drop of 38,000 votes, all for a singe candidate takes place.

Republicans held firm for about 5 minutes – ok, it was really a few hours – until all the to-be-expected death threats started rolling into their social media accounts and they were accused of being racists by activists at a public meeting. In the end, they caved, which Republicans always do, based on a “compromise” in which Michigan’s utterly corrupt Democrat Secretary of State will “audit” the county’s results. Which will be exactly like putting the fox in charge of the hen house.

From a story at the Detroit Free Press:

After initially voting against certifying the election results, Monica Palmer, the Republican chair of the committee, said she would be open to certifying the election results for other jurisdictions but not Detroit.

But Chris Thomas, the former director of elections for Michigan who served as a special adviser to Detroit City Clerk Janice Winfrey, responded, “I think that’s absurd. I think that would make a mockery of the situation. To open the door to selective canvassing would be a huge disservice to the election process.”

Public commenters who spoke during the meeting accused the board’s Republican members of disenfranchising hundreds of thousands of voters — particularly African-American voters — in initially refusing to certify the election.

Jonathan Kinloch, the Democratic vice chair of the board accused the Republican members of playing politics rather than fulfilling their legal obligation to certify the results. “I believe politics made its presence today,” Kinloch said. “This is reckless and irresponsible action by this board,” he added. Democratic board member Allen Wilson agreed. “I’m actually appalled to be sitting here today,” he said.

[End]

Thus does Michigan fall unless the federal courts can be convinced to intervene, which is highly unlikely to happen.

For more than 50 years, the Democrat Party has been playing the long game, fighting a war of attrition against our nation’s constitution and the freedoms and institutions it guarantees. For more than 50 years, the Republican Party has refused to understand the nature of this enemy of the state and of the people, and thus continued to fight a never-ending series of losing holding actions in which it always ends up getting flanked and giving ground.

Now, they are running out of ground to give, because the ground at stake in this current controversy is the continued existence and conduct of real, democratic elections in this country, which of course constitute the very foundation of our American Republic. Republican surrender monkeys like Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger and these two members of the Wayne County Board of Canvassers, who choose the easy way of resolving real controversies by entering into one-sided “compromises” with Democrats only serve to hasten the Republic’s destruction.

This court loss is actually a good thing. – The Trump legal team got poured out by the Pennsylvania Supreme court on Tuesday, but that was to be expected and is actually a good thing, since it speeds the process along.

From a report in the New York Post:

Pennsylvania’s Supreme Court on Tuesday overturned an order requiring that election observers be allowed within six feet of ballot-counting operations.

In its decision, the court said state law only requires that observers be allowed “in the room” where ballots are counted and does not mandate a minimum distance, NBC News said.

The 5-2 majority opinion also found that the Philadelphia Board of Elections “did not act contrary to the law in fashioning its regulations governing the positioning of candidate representatives,” according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.

“Critically, we find the board’s regulations…were reasonable,” Justice Debra Todd wrote.

[End]

Thus does the PA Supreme Court rule that it is “reasonable” for Democrats to segregate GOP election observers to an area from which they are literally unable to “observe” anything at all, which sort of defies the very definition of the word “observer”, doesn’t it?

Anyway, this decision is fine and very much expected, and it now frees up the Trump team to challenge this ruling in federal courts, where the real decision-making on all of this is going to end up taking place. It is doubtful that anyone on the Trump team expect a positive outcome before the PA supremes.

Meanwhile, in other election challenge-related events…

Trump lawyer L. Lin Wood tweeted this late Tuesday night:

Given the behavior of GA election officials to this point, this would not be at all surprising, would it?

Then there was this from election security expert Russ Ramsland on Lou Dobbs’s Fox Business program:

Here is part of what Ramsland had to say:

We have been out looking mostly at Michigan. We are beginning on turning our sights on Pennsylvania and Georgia. The things you find in Michigan are amazing. There are over 3,000 precincts where the presidential votes cast compared to the estimated voters from the SOS (Secretary of State) is 99% all the way up to 350%.

Those kind of numbers don’t exist in the real world. So where did all those votes come from?

And looking at that, we’ve gone back and looked at some of these huge vote dumps that were mostly Biden’s. We call them spikes. We’ve gone back and traced the spikes. We’ve seen where they were cast, primarily in four counties. We looked at how long it took to cast those votes. And we looked at the equipment that exists at all of those locations by serial number. And the fact of the matter is we can’t see any physical way possible for some of those votes to have been in those kind of numbers because they just don’t have the equipment that can produce it in that timing.

[End]

This happened in Nevada, but the corrupt national news media pretty much ignored the story:

From the story at the Las Vegas Review Journal:

Voters might get a second chance to decide the race for Clark County Commission District C, where the number of election discrepancies surpassed the razor-thin margin of victory, county lawmakers said Monday.

During a meeting to certify election results in the county, the commission directed Registrar of Voters Joe Gloria to return early next month with options for a special election between Democratic former Secretary of State Ross Miller and Republican Las Vegas City Councilman Stavros Anthony.

Miller defeated Anthony by just 10 votes in the general election, but Gloria said Monday that his office had identified 139 unexplainable discrepancies in the contest. The discrepancies, he said, were similar to those found throughout the county, including early voting and Election Day check-in errors and issues related to tracking of the process of mail ballots.

But because the number of discrepancies is more than the margin of victory, that called into question the validity of the results, and the uncertainty is unlikely to be resolved by a recount.

[End]

Grenell has a solid point: The vote count is too unreliable to resolve a county commission race, but just fine for a presidential contest? What kind of sense does that make?

So, things are moving ahead, but here we are at hump day, and Sidney Powell still hasn’t released the Kraken as far as anyone can tell.

Not good. Time is running out, and the Kraken, if it exists, demands to be fed.

That is all.

Tuesday News Roundup: Sidney Powell Drops Bombshells on Lou Dobbs, But She Needs More

I’ll just start by leaving this right here:

The winds of change are blowing and taking Fox News with them.

Sidney Powell drops some bombshells on Lou Dobbs.:

Transcript:

POWELL: I’ve just got some stunning evidence from a witness, a high-ranking military officer who was present when Smart-Matic was designed. And I’m gonna just read you some of these statements, if you don’t mind, so I get them exactly right:

From the Affidavit: Designed in a way that the system could change the vote of each voter without being detected. He wanted the software itself to function in such a manner that if the voter were to place their thumbprint or fingerprint on a scanner, then the thumbprint would be tied to a record of the voter’s name and identity as having voted, but that voter would not be tracked to the changed vote.

He made it clear that the system would have to be set up but not leave any evidence of the changed vote for the specific voter, and that there would be no evidence to show, and nothing to contradict that the name and the fingerprint or thumbprint was going with a changed vote. SmartMatic agreed to create such a system and produced the software and the hardware that accomplished the result for President [Hugo] Chavez.

After the SmartMatic electoral system was put into place, he closely observed several elections where the results were manipulated using the SmartMatic software. Once such election was in 2006, when Chavez was running against Rosales. Chavez won with a landslide over Rosales, a margin of nearly 6 million votes for Chavez, vs. 3.7 million for Rosales.

In 2013, he witnessed another Venezuelan national election where the SmartMatic system was used to manipulate and change the results. In a control room where multiple digital display screens were shown for results and voting, the actual voting results were fed into that room and onto the displays over an Internet feed, which was connected to a sophisticated computer system created by SmartMatic.

People in that room were able to see in real time whether the votes that came through the electronic voting system was in their favor or against them. If one looked at any particular screen, they could determine that the vote from any specific area or as a national total was going to be against either candidate. Persons controlling the vote tabulating computer had the ability to change the reporting of votes by moving votes from one candidate to another by using the SmartMatic software.

[End]

Now, that is indeed stunning if true. And if Sidney Powell is on TV reading it, I have no doubt at all that she believes it to be true.

But here’s the problem: It’s an affidavit signed by a witness whose identity we don’t know. If this is all Powell and the Trump team of lawyers have to present on the matter, it will not likely convince a judge or panel of judges to take any action at all.

Later in the interview, Powell goes onto allege that the same SmartMatic/Dominion system has been used to change the outcomes of elections all over the world, and alleges that the CIA would have to know about it if this was indeed happening. Unfortunately, when pressed on that allegation towards the CIA and its potential complicity, Powell only responds that “it’s simple logic.” Which is true, but which also is not going to convince any court in America to take any action absent some documentary evidence.

She and Dobbs both also point out the fact that former vice-admiral Peter Neffinger is the chairman of SmartMatic, and also now sits on the steering committee for the Biden/Harris Harris/Biden transition team. This is also very interesting and frankly shocking, but in and of itself will not be likely to convince a judge to do anything.

Next in the interview, Dobbs reveals that he has received news from an unidentified “source” who he describes as “highly reliable” that the FBI has a team “looking into” the conduct of this election. Yippee! Our dumpster fire FBI is “looking into” it! So, maybe 5-6 years from now we might see some kind of “report” on it all, but more likely it will come to nothing given that a real investigation would benefit the Bad Orange Man everyone in DC is trying to get rid of.

Again, all of this is very interesting, and I have little doubt that most, if not all of the allegations coming from the Trump team are true.

But – and there is always this “but” – they will be asking a series of judges, probably all the way up to the Supreme Court of the United States – to take radical, unprecedented action to basically either reverse or disqualify the vote counting in several individual states. In all of their interviews over the past week, I have yet to hear Powell or Rudy Giuliani talk about having anything more than witness testimony in their possession.

These are all bombshells for sure, but if witness testimony is all they have, then their court cases are destined to fail. Obviously, no smart lawyer is ever going to reveal their whole case publicly before a trial, and all we can do is hope that Powell, Giuliani and their team have been holding some even bigger bombshells in their hip pockets.

That is all.

Monday News Roundup: A New Vaccine and a New Biden-Related Voter Fraud Scam

Just a reminder that this man literally created, supplied and armed ISIS and authorized thousands of drone killings in the Middle East. Liberals think he’s wonderful:

This seems like a big deal:

Would have been good to know about this before the elections, dudes. But hey, I’m sure that it’s just a coincidence that this comes out 13 days after.

From the Mediaite Story:

Biotechnology firm Moderna has announced that their experimental vaccine is showing a very high level of effectiveness for protecting people from the coronavirus. This news follows a similar announcement from Pfizer about their Covid-19 vaccine, but the Moderna vaccine is now expected to remain stable at standard refrigerator temperatures of 2° to 8°C (36° to 46°F) for 30 days, up from the previous estimate of 7 days.

The company announced that their early data analysis shows their vaccine has a 94.5 percent effectiveness against Covid-19. CNN reports that Moderna received its results on Sunday while on call with the Data Safety and Monitoring Board, which has been overseeing their clinical data.

“It’s extremely good news. If you look at the data, the numbers speak for themselves,” Dr. Anthony Fauci said in a response gathered by Washington Post. “I describe myself as a realist, but I’m fundamentally a cautious optimist. I felt we’d likely get something less than this. … I said certainly a 90-plus-percent effective vaccine is possible, but I wasn’t counting on it.”

[End]

As I discuss elsewhere this morning, we can have a dozen effective vaccines and it won’t make a damn bit of difference to the Little Menace to Society, Anthony Fauci. He’s determined to keep us all wearing masks and pretending that social distancing works forever – the new normal in which he is the ultimate arbiter of how the government continues controlling our lives. Read it.

That’s why the Trump challenges that will be moving forward in the courts this week are so crucial. – After a weekend of pure hype from Trump lawyers Rudy Giuliani, Lin Wood, Jenna Ellis and Sidney Powell, the cases they have filed in state and federal courts challenging the election results in a half dozen states will begin being heard this week. While the need for a PR assault in an effort such as this is certainly understandable, this weekend was a case of too much in too short a time.

Worse, the rhetoric coming from these lawyers doesn’t really do much to increase confidence that they are truly prepared to make convincing cases in court. Giuliani in particular places almost all of his emphasis on witness testimony providing “proof” that elections were stolen using the Dominion systems. But if witness testimony is all they have, they are wasting their and the court’s time.

If these lawyers are not able to present cases filled with forensic proof that the election was indeed manipulated and demonstrate clearly how it all worked, then these lawsuits aren’t going to change a thing. They are going to be asking judges to put their lives and the remainder of their careers in personal jeopardy by issuing decisions that change the media-promoted outcomes in half a dozen states. No judge is going to be willing to do that based on the testimony of one or a thousand individuals.

Vague allegations that Dominion was created by Hugo Chavez and is partly-owned by China will not be enough: They must be able to show – clearly and unambiguously – that this system was manipulated in a way that literally changed the outcomes in states where the official counts show Biden ahead by 150,000 votes (Michigan), 60,000 votes (Pennsylvania) and 15,000 votes (Georgia).

That’s a very tall order, and the Trump legal team has only had slightly less than two weeks to put these cases together. None of this is to doubt the validity of the allegations that are being made: This election was stolen without any real question at all. But proving that in court in such a way that a judge or panel of judges are compelled to issue a radical, precedent-setting remedy – which is what they would be – is a different thing entirely.

The best advice for all of us is to hope for the best, and prepare for the worst.

The fake news never ends. – After the Trump team amended is complaint in Pennsylvania for clarity, striking one of several paragraphs that detail the fact that GOP election observers were denied access to vote counts in Philadelphia and other Democrat-run cities, the corrupt news media jointly ran with a fake story that the complaint had been dropped.

It hadn’t:

But don’t expect any corrections from the WaPo or New York Times or CNN or MSNBC or any of the myriad other fake news outlets who pushed that false story. Because faking the news is what they do and who they are. It’s in their DNA.

Meanwhile, here’s another very plausible story about massive election fraud helping Joe Biden that none of the corrupt national outlets are covering, because of course they aren’t.

From the story at The Buffalo Chronicle:

The innermost circles of the American mafia are abuzz.  The Boss of the Philly mob — ‘Skinny Joey’ Merlino — is taking a victory strut, hobnobbing around the highest echelons of old-time mafia folk, mostly in Florida, describing what may have been the heist of the century: the 2020 presidential election.

The feat is drawing praise from far-flung corners of the Italian American business community, which sees the thanks of a grateful administration as key to the revival of the community’s political influence.

But an associate says that Merlino might just be willing to flip on Joe Biden and the Pennsylvania political operatives who ordered up some 300,000 election ballots marked for Biden.  The source alleges that Merlino and a lean team of associates manufactured those ballots at a rate of $10 per ballot — a whopping $3 million for three days of work.  They were then packaged into non-descript cardboard boxes and dropped off outside the Philadelphia Convention Center.

Sources who spoke to The Chronicle on the condition of anonymity say that Merlino picked up those ballots from two private households where a trusted handful of associates were busily marking ballots with Sharpie markers.  They were paid more than $1,000 per hour, often producing thousands of ballots every hour for more than 60 nearly-consecutive hours.

[End]

This is, of course, the kind of old-fashioned voter fraud that Democrats have been practicing in big inner-cities from time immemorial. It’s exactly the kind of mob operation that got John F. Kennedy elected in 1960, the kind that got Lyndon Johnson elected to the U.S. senate in 1948, albeit on a much smaller scale. Should Merlino flip, it would be the ultimate irony, given that Biden won his first race for U.S. Senator in 1972 with the voter fraud help of the Philly mob and the Teamsters Union.

We still have a long way to go here, folks. Just be patient.

That is all.
