BREAKING: SIDNEY POWELL AND RUDY GIULIANI "RELEASE THE KRAKEN"
On Thursday afternoon, attorney Sidney Powell made good on her promise to “release the Kraken.”
In a remarkable press conference with Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani, the two of them, along with GOP senior legal adviser Jenna Ellis, gave their “opening statement” outlining their legal challenges to the election and detailing some of the proof they say they can show of shocking and election-turning voter fraud in multiple states.
They made it clear that it was not their intention to display all their proof during that initial press conference, but Giuliani claimed they can already, right now, present enough evidence of fraud to overturn the election. He said they “have a thousand [affidavits] at least, and we’re getting more every day. And there are other aspects of this fraud that, at this point, I really can’t reveal...It’s enough to overturn any election. It’s disgraceful what happened.”
Sidney Powell presented a separate overview of the alleged problems with Dominion Voting Systems and the software used, which we told you about earlier in the week. If this sounds like wild conspiracy theory, imagine how the media will cover it. Wait –- you don’t have to imagine. Here’s a good example; this story about Giuliani’s “bizarre press conference” was on Yahoo News almost immediately afterwards.
They dismiss this as “an outlandish conspiracy theory.” Another outlet used the word “surreal.” They called attention to petty side issues such as the sweat on Giuliani’s face. (It appeared that there was hot light on him.)
Powell has a solid reputation for not saying things she can’t prove, but, of course, we still need to see the goods. If her claims are proven true, they certainly go a long way towards explaining numerous statistical anomalies that have been documented. Still, the same media that pushed the fake “Russia Russia Russia!” conspiracy claims will likely never accept them.
Instead of just snarking and attacking, real JOURNALIST Sharyl Attkisson REPORTED on what was said, outlining the essential claims. She also linked to the actual press conference, in full, so you can watch and decide for yourself if these attorneys are over their target. So here’s the whole thing, a history-making must-see. What do YOU think?
When Powell and Giuliani finally took questions from “reporters,” the knives immediately came out, prompting Giuliani to say this about the media coverage they're receiving: “The censorship that is going on in this country right now, by Big Tech and by Big Media, is almost as dangerous as the election fraud that we’re revealing. Maybe just as dangerous.”
Legal analyst Andrew C. McCarthy, speaking afterwards on FOX NEWS, is skeptical because of cases they had brought or were going to bring but have already dropped. (Let me stress, I’m not a lawyer, but it seems that perhaps no one should be second-guessing their legal strategy, as they obviously have decided to focus on certain cases as the issues evolve, even though they claim to have other evidence.)
McCarthy also said the two Republican election officials in Wayne County, Michigan, who now want to rescind their certification (in part because of intimidation they received) cannot legally do it. Again, I am not a lawyer, let alone in Michigan, but we should see about that, as they agreed to certify only on the condition that there would be a full audit, which the Michigan secretary of state later said she was under no obligation to do.
He also cautioned that “this is moving rapidly,” with some states starting next week to certify their results. It does take time to prove a case, as Ellis repeatedly noted in the press conference, and McCarthy said that “time is not a commodity they have right now.”
He said that at this point, “I continue to not see it, and that’s saying that I think that a lot of the things that they’re proffering here ought to be investigated.” He assumed they dropped some cases because “a judge is not going to strike 700,000 votes because you’ve shown some instances of fraud, because that would have the effect of disenfranchising lawful voters, not just Biden voters...lawful Biden and Trump voters. Because EVERYBODY’S vote would not count.” He doesn’t see any judge doing this in “the time frame we’re talking about.” I get the impression that the main reason for his pessimism is this seemingly impossible time frame.
He said it “would be good to see” evidence of the algorithm Powell was talking about with the Dominion system and the spikes in vote tabulation that can’t be explained in terms of actual human behavior. Well, yes.
I think this is the kind of thing he means. If you’re into statistical analysis, look at what appear to be Biden “vote dumps,” as detailed by Nick Chase in AMERICAN THINKER. Chase has looked closely at this statistical story and believes Trump really won in both Michigan and Wisconsin.
Legal expert Jonathan Turley also appeared on FOX NEWS, jabbing Rudy for presenting “a global communist conspiracy that even featured the dead Hugo Chavez. “The only thing missing was a sinister figure petting a white cat. I mean it was very heavy stuff.” (I'd love to see Rudy at this point pull out a picture of George Soros petting a white cat! Maybe he's saving it for court. Sorry, we need a little humor right now.)
The good news: “This will HAVE to end up in court,” Turley said, because if they don’t bring it in court, “they’ll have to bring it later in defense of a defamation claim.” He said he was sympathetic to the argument that this takes awhile, but “this is really not the time for opening statements [and heated rhetoric]; this is the time for hard evidence.”
"I am going to make the presumption that these attorneys can support these arguments, because if they cannot, they honestly could be subject to --- and the Trump campaign could be subject to --- legal action by [Dominion],” heh said. But they’ve got to do it FAST. They say they’re ready to roll, “but we’re running out of runway.”
He also said the Biden campaign should've decided to “stand down” and let the evidence be heard right away --- sure, that would happen --- so the process wouldn’t go past the time of certification. If that happens, he observed, we could have “a bloodletting on the floor of Congress, and we don’t need that as a country.”
"It was one of the most amazing press conferences that I have seen,” he said.
This story is a great illustration of humorist James Thurber’s rule that you might as well fall flat on your face as bend over too far backwards.
Least Surprising News of the Day: Joe Biden vowed that as President, he will collaborate with China.
PELOSI SAYS ONLY ONE MORE TERM AS SPEAKER
Nancy Pelosi reaffirmed her vow to serve only one more term as House Speaker. That’s a pretty hollow vow, since she must suspect just as I do that after the 2022 election, no Democrat will be House Speaker.
FYI, for those who might think there’s a chance Pelosi won’t be elected Speaker again, things are proceeding in such a predictable way that you could practically set your watch by them. First we had the grumblings of discontent and mutiny from the Democrats. Then on Wednesday morning, they nominated her once again as their leader, and she ran unopposed. And now, we’re hearing the caveats that it’s not final, and she might yet be replaced. There are Democrats who won’t support her, and without them, she doesn’t have enough votes to win.
Let me know when anyone seriously challenges her. Sure, it’s possible she could lose or step down. It’s also possible that it could rain lemonade, and if it did, I’d grab a pitcher and welcome it. But I’m not counting on it.
At Harvard University, where parents pay exorbitant tuition to expose their children to conflicting ideas and teach them how to think, some open-minded students are circulating a petition to ban any Trump Administration alumni from attending, teaching or speaking at Harvard. If any are allowed, they demand that the school create and share with students transparent guidelines on why that person was allowed on campus.
Just off the top of my head, how about this? “The person is allowed to appear on campus because having risen so far in the world that he or she was worthy of playing a role in a United States Presidential Administration, we assume this person might have some knowledge or insights that an arrogant, close-minded, wet-behind-the-ears sophomore might not possess and be in desperate need of hearing.
I do have to thank any students who sign that petition, though, for self-identifying as proponents of blacklists and opponents of freedom of thought and association who themselves should not be allowed on the campus of Harvard or any school that understands what the mission of a college is.
THIS IS CNN
This…Is CNN: The network is so terrified of “offending” anyone that they now call the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree the “Holiday Tree.” I wonder what holiday they think it’s there for? Arbor Day?
Tragic news: TMZ is reporting that singer Bobby Brown’s 28-year-old son Bobby Brown Jr. was found dead Wednesday in his home in L.A. Early reports are that police don’t believe foul play was involved. This family has suffered more than its share of tragedy, following the death of Brown’s wife, superstar Whitney Houston, and their daughter Bobbi Kristina at 22, both from drug overdoses. I hope you’ll all pray for both comfort and healing to the family.
