Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, November 23, 2020

The Trump campaign's legal team moved to distance itself Sunday from the firebrand conservative attorney after a tumultuous several days in which Powell made multiple incorrect statements about the voting process, unspooled unsupported and complex conspiracy theories and vowed to "blow up" Georgia with a "biblical" lawsuit.

This begs the question --- just how far have you strayed from the herd when you seem to be too bonkers to remain on the Trump legal team?

In typical Trump world fashion, it's like they hardly ever heard of her, asking "Where did she come from?"

It's alright as Powell is a Q-Believer.

She knows that this is all part of the 5-D chess that Trump is playing to finally capture those Dem pedophiles. Also, Trump wishes Ghislaine Maxwell well.

Does she also get $20k per day to represent Trump's interests in court? If so, the grifter is getting grifted...

She looks crazier than Mr Giuliani...

The Glorious Rise And Fall Of Sidney Powell's Trump Campaign Gig

...Sidney Powell lasted barely one Scaramucci as a member of President Donald Trump's legal team, but boy was it a wild ride.

The right-wing lawyer best known for defending former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn went out in a blaze of glory, asserting in a monologue at the Republican Party's headquarters Thursday that a global cabal of communists had conspired with Democrats to steal President Donald Trump's second term from him.

Powell represented the clearest, most direct connection between the Trump campaign and the vast network of conspiracy theorists whose claims about voter fraud and rigged elections have fueled Trump's grievances for months.

For example, over the weekend she boosted a Twitter thread from Dave Hayes, a QAnon conspiracy theorist who goes by "The Praying Medic" because he claims to communicate with God.

According to the Praying Medic thread she retweeted, Powell has received "an avalanche of first-hand, eyewitness testimony from hundreds of patriots" which, eventually, will be used make the indisputable case that Donald Trump really won the election. ("Somehow, patriots neutralized election rigging" in 2016, The Praying Medic clarified.)

On-stage with Giuliani and Ellis, Powell walked through another QAnon community favorite " the assertion that voting machine vendor Dominion Voting Systems rigged the election for Biden. Powell asserted the company's software was "created in Venezuela at the direction of Hugo Chavez to make sure he never lost an election."

As evidence, she cited to a single affidavit from someone who claimed they observed votes being manipulated in Venezuela using a software called Smartmatic. The affiant wrote that Dominion relies upon software "that is a descendant of the Smartmatic Electoral Management System," and that the 2020 U.S. elections were "eerily reminiscent" of Venezuela's 2013 presidential election.

A spokesperson for Dominion characterized Powell's claims as "not physically possible." And while the affiant Powell cited is still anonymous, the case in which they were involved -- an effort to prevent Georgia from certifying the election results -- was rejected by a federal judge a few hours after the RNC press conference.

"We see on social media people talking about blockbusters' and krakens,'" Gabriel Sterling, Voting Systems Manager for the Georgia Secretary of State's office, told reporters Monday. "I want to remind everybody that krakens are myths."...

Other examples cited in the article are just as weird, if not worse...

This is who represents the Republican Party of late...

I am sure Germans thought the same thing at some point as the Notzees took over...

Is Powell the kook that purports that Hillary sells uranium out of her pizza shop with the kids tied up in the basement?

I turned on Hannity for a few minutes last week to see what he was saying about the election.

He started with "socialist Hugo Chavez!" and repeated the rest of the QANON ridiculousness a few times in the first minute.

Speaking of propaganda, two former Australian prime ministers have banded together to take town Murdoch's hold over politics. Let's hope to see more of the same worldwide.

My guess is they didn't realize how bad her ideas were until she said them out loud.

After the performance of Tudy Coludy I am surprised he is still on the team. That was the most embarrassing moment I have ever witnessed. What does Rudy bring to the Trump team? Total incompetence and that is it. Rudy is a complete joke.
