Trump re-election campaign lawyer Sidney Powell on exposing mass vote fraud: 'It will be BIBLICAL' - UPDATE: Trump campaign lawyers distance president from Powell

powell kraken election
Levying explosive claims of widespread voter fraud specifically tied to Dominion Voting Systems and potentially a pay-for-play scheme with GOP Gov. Brian Kemp, Trump campaign lawyer Sidney Powell on Newsmax TV vowed to deliver a "biblical" voter fraud case this week.

"We've got tons of evidence; it's so much, it's hard to pull it all together," Powell told Saturday night's "The Count" co-hosted by Rob Schmitt and Mark Halperin, teasing the explosive allegation of the Georgia governor in a contested and key battleground state.

"Hopefully this week we will get it ready to file, and it will be biblical."

"It's a massive project to pull this fraud claim together with the evidence that I want to put in," she added.

"You name the manner of fraud and it occurred in Georgia."

Comment: We're inclined to believe Powell regarding the scale of the fraud she is suggesting took place; this election was probably rigged to the tune of millions of votes 'flipped' from Trump to Biden.

Powell's idea that the rigging was meant to be more straightforward fits with what we saw happen. Digital flipping of votes occurred 'mid-stream', on the night, as they came in... but that there were too many for Trump so the system became overwhelmed somehow ("the algorithm crashed"), forcing the 'pause', followed by manual dumps of fraudulent ballots for Biden over subsequent hours and days.

Having said that, we're also wary of QAnon-like claims about 'justice being served any day now'. It's been 4 years and Killary is still very much free. The 'Venezuela-Cuba-China-Commies-did-this-to-us' angle is also, of course, pure BS. We're scratching our heads as to why the Trump legal team would sully their case with such provably false claims. Powell DOES also keep name-dropping the CIA, so at least she occasionally hones in on the most likely perps...

What Powell appears to be doing, in general, is drumming up popular support for Trump's case - and thus 'pressure' that can be applied on US Supreme Court judges when they do finally hear and see the evidence Powell, Giuliani et al present of mass vote fraud.

People can question the wisdom of this, but don't forget that those judges will be coming under far greater pressure from the deep state to certify the election of Joe Biden, 'or else'...

As things stand, Trump's going to need a 'hail mary' from 'on high' to 'un-steal' this election.

UPDATE 23 Nov 2020

In the space of a few hours, from conducting press conferences side-by-side with Powell to retweeting her interviews, the other lawyers representing Trump's re-election campaign have suddenly distanced the president from her:

And Powell's response:

Trump's chances of re-elections likely just took another dive.

The secret agenda of the World Bank and IMF

International Monetary Fund (IMF)
The World Bank and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) work hand in glove - smoothly. Not only are they regularly lending huge sums of money to horror regimes around the world, but they blackmail poor nations into accepting draconian conditions imposed by the west. In other words, the WB and the IMF are guilty of the most atrocious human rights abuses.

You couldn't tell, when you read above the entrance of the World Bank the noble phrase, "Our Dream is World Free of Poverty". To this hypocrisy I can only add, "...And we make sure it will just remain a dream." This says both, the lie and the criminal nature of the two International Financial Institutions, created under the Charter of the United Nations, but instigated by the United States.

The front of these institutions is brilliant. What meets the eye, are investments in social infrastructure, in schools, health systems, basic needs like drinking water, sanitation - even environmental protection - over all "Poverty Alleviation", i.e. A World Free of Poverty. But how fake this is today and was already in the 1970's and 1980's is astounding. Gradually people are opening their eyes to an abject reality, of exploitation and coercion and outright blackmail. And that, under the auspices of the United Nations. What does it tell you about the UN system? In what hands are the UN? - The world organization was created in San Francisco, California, on 24 October 1945, just after WWII, by 51 nations, committed to maintaining international peace and security, developing friendly relations among nations and promoting social progress, better living standards and human rights.

John Kerry says 'Great Reset' is needed to stop rise of populism

Says rejoining Paris Climate Agreement is "not enough."

Former Secretary of State John Kerry attended a panel discussion at the World Economic Forum during which he asserted that a great reset was urgently needed to stop the rise of populism.

Kerry vowed that under a Biden administration, America would rejoin the job-killing Paris Climate Agreement but that this was "not enough."

"The notion of a reset is more important than ever before," Kerry said. "I personally believe ... we're at the dawn of an extremely exciting time."

The former Senator made it clear that this "reset," which is merely a re-branding of the same new world order that has faced stiff resistance for the past two decades, is necessary to extinguish populism.

Comment: Kerry is projecting all of the lawlessness and chaos of his own party (and time working under Obama) on to Trump of course.
It was Kerry's party that supported the rioting and the looting we've seen in past months in the US. And it was under Kerry that the US-aided coup occurred in Ukraine, the US used ISIS as a proxy terror force in Iraq and Syria, and it was under Kerry that Libya was quite literally decimated by NATO's intervention Syria...

But, sure, go ahead and blame Trump for a "breach of law and order".


Michigan legislators face calls for possible criminal charges after meeting with President Trump on certification

We have been discussing the campaign of The Lincoln Project and others to harass and abuse lawyers who represent the Trump campaign or other parties bringing election challenges. Similar campaigns have targeted election officials who object to counting irregularities. Now, the Michigan Attorney General and others are suggesting that Republicans who oppose certification or even meet with President Donald Trump on the issue could be criminally investigated or charged. Once again, the media is silent on this clearly abusive use of the criminal code target members of the opposing party in their raising objections under state law.

On Friday afternoon, leaders of Michigan's Republican-controlled state legislature met with Trump in the White House at his invitation. My column today explores the difficulty in any strategy to trigger an electoral college fight. However, the objections from legislators could focus on an host of sworn complaints from voters or irregularities in voting counts. We have not seen evidence establishing the type of systemic problems that would flip a state, let alone the election as a whole. While the legal team did raise some credible electoral concerns, I was also critical of Rudy Giuliani's global communist conspiracy claim at the press conference this week. Some of these questions are being addressed in the courts. In the meantime, state legislators have a right to raise electoral objections and seek resolution in the legislative branch.

'Enslavement passes': Critics blast UK's Health Secretary for pushing 'covid passports' and MONTHLY tests

Former Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt wants Brits to take a monthly coronavirus test, with a negative result earning them "freedom passes." His idea angered some commenters, who called it "Orwellian."

Writing in The Times on Friday, Hunt described an effective vaccine as Britain's best shot at returning to normal life. However, the Conservative MP said that the country needs a "plan B" in the form of monthly tests for the whole population, with the freedom to live a normal life awarded only to those who show negative results.

Hunt suggested "offering people who comply with testing and isolation requirements a 'freedom pass' that removes the requirement to follow lockdown regulations." Slovakia rolled out a similar system less than a month earlier, with those testing negative earning a certificate exempting them from curfew.

Comment: It should be fairly obvious by now that this isn't about a virus - a virus so 'deadly' that they have to test half a million people a day for just to prove it's there: And check out SOTT radio's:


Trump administration announces two moves aimed at lowering drug prices

President Trump on Friday announced two major actions aimed at lowering the price of prescription drugs, as he seeks to make a mark on the issue in the final months of his administration.

One rule announced Friday would lower drug prices in Medicare Part B to match the lower prices paid in other wealthy countries, a proposal known as "most favored nation."

The second action would eliminate the rebates that drugmakers pay to "middlemen" known as pharmacy benefit managers, in a bid to simplify the drug pricing system and pass the discounts on to consumers instead.


Swiss prosecutors to close Magnitsky probe - Browder whines, spouts anti-Russian conspiracy theories

© Alexander Zemlianichenko / AP / TASS
Swiss prosecutors plan to close a nearly decade-old money laundering investigation into allegations made by the late lawyer Sergei Magnitsky, Bloomberg reported Thursday.

Swiss prosecutors opened the money-laundering probe in 2011 after Hermitage Capital, once the largest foreign investor in Russia, claimed that a former Russian tax official moved fraudulent tax refunds through Swiss bank accounts. Magnitsky, who died of untreated illness in Russian jail in 2009, alleged that Russian Interior Ministry officials fraudulently collected a $230 million tax refund on behalf of Hermitage.

In a Nov. 6 letter to Hermitage, Swiss federal prosecutors outlined their intention to close the case soon and confiscate as much as $4 million from Swiss bank accounts controlled by entities in the case, according to Bloomberg.

Hermitage reportedly responded by saying that Swiss law enforcement "capitulated to the Russians." The London-based firm vowed to challenge the decision and request further investigation before a Dec. 8 deadline, Bloomberg reported.

The Daily Beast reported that the Swiss prosecutors used "sophisticated financial analysis to dilute the value of the laundered money so that most of it can be returned."

The outlet estimated that the Swiss prosecutors will return 99% of the frozen assets to one Russian national implicated in the tax fraud case and 100% to another. A third figure is expected to receive between 55-87% of the frozen funds.

Dems and media reaping four years fruit of anti-Trump conspiracy theories

Harvard constitutional law Professor Lawrence Tribe and Former VP Joe Biden
If taking claims to court undermines democracy, how to defend Democrats' vociferous and repeated claims that Donald Trump stole the election in 2016 with the help of Russia?

A prominent liberal legal academic who spent the last four years pushing outrageous, discredited, and debunked conspiracy theories about Donald Trump stealing the 2016 election said on Fox News Sunday that refusal to accept the legitimacy of the 2020 presidential election threatens the country.

"He is undermining democracy because there are millions of people who will believe him even though there is nothing to his arguments and no evidence to back them," Harvard Law professor Laurence Tribe said of President Trump's litigation regarding the November election.

As Trump and many of his 74 million voters express concern about the security of the 2020 election, in which many states rushed to expand mail-in balloting while dramatically lowering scrutiny of mail-in ballots, many media figures have condemned their efforts to litigate the results.

Comment: The above outlines just one Democrat's persistent actions to demonize the President. The cumulative magnitude of derogatory and unrelenting vicious messaging to delegitimize his presidency is nearly unfathomable - no thanks to MSM underscoring and promoting false accusations as relevant news.


'Absurd pandering': Biden promises to 'listen' to and 'fight' for 'transgender and gender-nonconforming' people

Biden now casting his net for ANY support
Joe Biden has been accused painting a false picture about hate crimes against transgender people, as well as using politically incorrect language, in a tweet vowing to "fight" for the "dignity and justice" they have been "denied."

"At least 37 transgender and gender-nonconforming people have been killed this year, most of them Black and Brown transgender women," Biden tweeted on Friday, recognized as Transgender Day of Remembrance.

The presumed president-elect said the deaths are "intolerable" and promised to "fight" to end the "epidemic of violence."

Comment: Is Creepy Joe starting to feel his base crumbling under his feet?

Israel lovers Pompeo and Trump are burying Palestine, knowing Biden won't have the power to dig the nation up again

US Sec. of State Mike Pompeo • Mount Bental, Golan Heights
The US secretary of state became the first in his position to visit an Israeli settlement in the West Bank and Golan Heights when he toured the Psagot Winery and was hailed a hero by many Israelis for denouncing the BDS movement.

The last act of a desperate man is the only explanation for America's spiteful attack on the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions movement.

Donald Trump's loyal lieutenant Mike Pompeo brandished his claws on a visit to Israel. Standing side-by-side with another member of the Trump VIP Club, Benjamin Netanyahu, he branded BDS "a cancer" and professed that the USA is "committed to countering the Global BDS Campaign as a manifestation of anti-Semitism." A giddy Netanyahu applauded and called it all "wonderful."
