ATTORNEY: SIDNEY POWELL HAS "SMOKING GUNS" (PLURAL!) ON FRAUD
Last week, Georgia attorney Lin Wood, who represented Richard Jewell and Nicholas Sandmann, was “100 percent” confident that Joe Biden would not become President. This week, to express how certain he is relative to last week, he says he’s “105 percent.”
Wood spent all day Sunday with Trump attorney Sidney Powell, assisting in an unofficial capacity, and said Monday in a NEWSMAX interview with Howie Carr that Powell and Rudy Giuliani really do have the “smoking guns” (plural) that show Trump won re-election. As we’ve reported, Powell has said her team will release evidence that overturns the results in multiple states because of software used by Dominion Voting Systems that switched “millions of votes.” Wood is convinced.
He said that “when you boil it down, it simply amounts to the fact that the United States of America was relying on voting machines that were subject to manipulation.”
This is a separate issue from the lawsuit Wood filed against the secretary of state in Georgia; that one has to do with the counting of mail-in ballots.
"I’ve seen sworn affidavits, I’ve seen sworn video statements,” he said. “I think that Rudy and Sidney have done a magnificent job in a short period of time of piecing together a solid legal case on what was intended to be a complicated scheme of fraud as it relates to the voting machines.”
Of course, this needs to happen very quickly, but Wood is confident that it will. “Things are going to be rapidly developing over the course of the next few days,” he said, because the evidence of the computer voting fraud is mounting daily.”
Like me, he sounds very old-school about what we need to do in future elections: “We might want to go back to the days where we fill in a hand ballot, sign it, and let people count it, ‘cause when you open the door to these types of computers, you’re opening the door for people to manipulate, hack, and to defraud people, and that’s exactly what was done here.”
"There’s no doubt in my mind about it,” he said, describing a process that spans several countries and tracks “ultimately to the software company SGO Smartmatic, whose software went into a number of voting machines, almost exclusively used in the Dominion machine. The information was then processed through Scytl –-that’s where the manipulations occurred in the software that [were] reported out to a company called Clarity. Clarity was reporting out real-time numbers for people watching it on TV.” He explained this is why viewers might have seen the Republican side go down 560 votes and the Democrat up 560. “It was pure and simple computer manipulation of the voting totals,” he said.
Wood's own lawsuit in Georgia claims the vote there is “null and void” because the secretary of state “changed the substantive rules of the election.” (I would add that this is what the Pennsylvania governor and state supreme court also did.) That would mean the Georgia legislature needs to meet and select its electors as required under the 12th Amendment and direct them on how to cast their votes. Wood believes the President will be elected through the Electoral College, “but it’ll be based on state legislators determining the will of the state.”
"The rest of the Georgia election has got to be thrown out,” he said, calling for a re-vote on all the down-ballot races. “Everything was infected by the computer and the absentee ballot fraud."
They need to “get busy” to make that happen in January, he said. They can do it then instead of having a run-off, he suggested, because the run-off is now illegitimate, the product of an illegitimate general election.
Wood can speak only for Georgia, but he thought there would have to be “some determination by the state legislatures” as to how much confidence they have in their election results. They might choose to certify, or else they’ll have to do a re-vote like Georgia.
"It’s gonna take some time,” he said, “but the time will be well spent. Because I don’t believe any objective, fair-minded citizen wants to be represented by individuals who are elected based on fraud by buying an election. They want people to be elected by their legitimate, valid votes. If it takes a little time, it takes a little time.”
We can go ahead and deal with the presidency in the Electoral College on December 14, he said; that’s what the Constitution mandates and gives us the mechanism for in the 12th Amendment. When Carr mentioned the potential problem of Republican state legislators not wanting to interfere with the election returns (perhaps even if there is fraud), Wood said he hadn't heard their specific concerns and couldn’t really comment, but he added that they "have a duty under their oath of office to uphold the laws of the state, and I’m sure the laws of the United States. And if they’re aware of a fraudulent election, they have a legal, and moral, and ethical obligation to act on it. You cannot ignore fraud.”
Wood thinks most of the down-ballot vote was legitimate; “they were concentrating on key senate races,” he said, “and...on the presidency. That’s where they put in the computer algorithms, and that’s certainly where they went in late at night, created any number of hundreds of thousands of paper ballots --- many of which, in some key jurisdictions, were only votes for Biden.”
He mentioned another unusual thing about “an extremely large number” of the paper ballots –- all the circles made to mark votes were perfect.
"This election is so fraught with fraud that anybody, no matter whether you’re a Republican or a Democrat, you ought to stand up and say we’re not gonna tolerate it.” In America, he said, “we have the right to vote, we have the right to have our vote count, and we do not have to tolerate people manipulating and putting in a fraudulent election simply because of their agenda. And that’s what happened here.”
He went on to point fingers and noted that it’s not the first time this has happened. The video of the full interview is here.
Incidentally, we found something quite interesting about Smartmatic; it appears there might be a connection between that company and Kamala Harris's spouse. We'll explore this further. In the meantime, have a look.
Now is the time for the President's lawyers to produce this evidence for the American people, otherwise they sound no better than Congressman Schiff and Congressman Nadler when they promised a Russian - Trump campaign conspiracy around every corner.
TECH CEOS GRILLED AGAIN
Tuesday, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg were back for more virtual grilling by the Senate, and you could practically hear them silently praying that Biden will become President so they can escape any more responsibility for their blatant bias and censorship. Like quashing the sharing or discussion of the New York Post’s Hunter Biden laptop story, which a recent survey found could have cost Biden 4.5% of his vote if people had heard about it.
Sen. Ted Cruz made Dorsey look like a twitchy, guilty witness being grilled by Perry Mason. One fist-pumping moment came when Cruz laid a trap that Dorsey apparently sleep-walked right into. It related to the way that Twitter and Facebook are treating voter fraud as the Valdemort of political issues: “That which must not be named!”
He asked, “Mr. Dorsey, does voter fraud exist?” Dorsey replied, “I don’t know for certain.” Cruz pressed, “Are you an expert in voter fraud?” Dorsey admitted, “No, I’m not.” Cruz asked, “Why then is Twitter right now putting purported warnings on virtually any statement about voter fraud,” claiming that it’s exceedingly rare? Dorsey claimed, “We’re simply linking to a broader conversation so that people have more information.”
That’s when Cruz pounced, saying that no, you’re not. You’re taking a disputed policy position, which publishers can do, but they can’t then dodge the legal liabilities of being publishers.
PJ Media has more great quotes at this link, plus the video. The section quoted above starts around the 6:00 mark.
And while you’re at it, check out this smackdown on both Dorsey and Zuckerberg by Sen. Lindsay Graham. He pointed out that if Facebook and Twitter aren’t publishers or editors, then “why do you have editorial control over the New York Post? That, to me, seems like, you’re the ultimate editor. The editorial decision at the New York Post to run the story was overridden by Twitter and Facebook, in different fashions, to prevent its dissemination. Now, if that’s not making an editorial decision, I don’t know what would be.”
Let me finish up by mentioning, just FYI, that free speech-oriented alternative social media outlets like Parler.com (INCLUDING MY PROFILE: https://parler.com/profile/MikeHuckabee) and MeWe.com are adding a flood of new users every day.
Former President Obama is slinging a lot of hooey in interviews promoting his new memoir, but surely one of the most eye-rolling claims is that he set a model for presidential transitions that Trump isn’t living up to.
At the link, Julie Kelly at American Greatness reminds us that the handoff of power from Obama to Trump was more sedition than transition. Like many aspects of the Obama Administration, it was a façade of Presidential decorum over a naked politicization and weaponization of government agencies that should be above politics, intended to spy on, slander, hamper and undercut the incoming Administration. It was an attempted Deep State coup that, while it was based on zero evidence and was eventually exposed, nevertheless hamstrung Trump for much of his term and provided fodder for 24/7 attacks by the media.
If Biden is declared the winner and Trump wanted to provide him with the same kind of cordial transition he received, then he’d be instructing the FBI to try to ensnare Biden’s top staffers in perjury traps and frame him for treason.
By the way, bonus points to Ms Kelly for using the media’s favorite phrase (“without evidence”) accurately for once, in referring to Obama CIA Director John Brennan’s document claiming that Vladimir Putin ordered an influence campaign to hurt Hillary Clinton and help Trump win.
Over 2500 ballots were “found” in a second county in Georgia, and they increased President Trump’s total by about 400 votes. And another 245 ballots were found in Walton County that boosted Trump’s lead there by 176 votes. This drops Biden’s lead in Georgia from 14,000 votes to less than 13,000.
There was controversy yesterday in Wayne County, Michigan (Detroit), when the County Board of Canvassers deadlocked on certifying the vote, amid accusations of voter fraud and serious discrepancies, including ballot counts in 71% of precincts not matching voter rolls. The board has two Democrats and two Republicans, and the Republicans didn’t want to certify the results until the issues were investigated.
However, they changed their minds and voted to certify two hours later, after being subjected to vicious accusations of racism and attempting to disenfranchise black voters. It was bad enough that many of these accusations came from people in responsible and powerful positions, such as Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib of “the Squad.” But other leftists on social media resorted to outright threats and doxing, publicizing the canvassers’ names and faces and urging people to go after them.
I don’t know if this campaign of slander and intimidation is the reason they agreed to certify the vote, but the very idea that we should even have to ask the question is outrageous. Using threats and intimidation to influence election officials is the stuff of Third World banana republics. It has no place in America – or at least, it shouldn’t.
