Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, September 22, 2021

By the time the news conference occurred on Nov. 19, Mr. Trump's campaign had already prepared an internal memo on many of the outlandish claims about the company, Dominion Voting Systems, and the separate software company, Smartmatic. The memo had determined that those allegations were untrue.

Even though the memo was hastily assembled, it rebutted a series of allegations that Ms. Powell and others were making in public. It found:

1. That Dominion did not use voting technology from the software company, Smartmatic, in the 2020 election.

2. That Dominion had no direct ties to Venezuela or to Mr. Soros.

3. And that there was no evidence that Dominion's leadership had connections to left-wing "antifa" activists, as Ms. Powell and others had claimed.


Can't bury ALL of the paper trails, I guess.

That is a 1.3 Billion memo.

"Ms. Powell told a reporter for the Australian Broadcasting Corporation that the 2020 election was "essentially a bloodless coup where they took over the presidency of the United States without a single shot being fired."

Always accuse your opposition of doint exactly the things you are actually doing yourself.

If after all this is exposed if the DOJ/Congress do not expose his crimes to the public this country will get what it deserves when the next coup is attempted. The GOP has already chimed in that so long as it is their tinpot dictator, they are cool with all the treasonous pukes in their party.

Rudy Colludy was counting on a $20K per hour payout over this, but I am getting the vibe that none of the legal team have been paid anywhere near what they were promised.

THIS!!

There are not enough newsworthy flags in the universe for THIS.

I see an example of THIS almost everyday. It's amazing how often they try THIS. I guess because it still works?

@#5 ... Always accuse your opposition of [doing] exactly the things you are actually doing yourself. ...

That seems to be true of the republican party in oh so many ways.

Isn't it interesting that the Republicant party, the "protector of the rights of the unborn" are precisely those who infect our children with the deadly Covid? ---- THOSE --------.

"Donald Trump did not hijack American conservatism; in him it reached its logical culmination. The defining characteristics of post-1980 conservatism"its authoritarianism; denigration of reason and education; obsession with power at all costs; Manichean, black and white thinking; apocalyptic, religious fundamentalist mentality; paranoia and sense of being besieged even when in power; and gangsterish deceit, bad faith, and lack of principle, whether practiced by a transparent swindler like Trump or a supposed intellectual like Newt Gingrich"must lead to nihilism and mindless destruction."

#11 Nails it.

Trump isn't the beginning of the end.

He's the end of the beginning of America's long slide into fascism.

Sidney Powell continues to promote complete BS, asserting on some right wing program just this week that the Democrats not only stole the election, but that they've committed at least two murders to cover up their crime. She knows it's not true, but she keeps saying it, and apparently that's good enough to make her a star among the right-wing nut jobs who control the GOP.

"The Trump campaign knew"

They also knew that their Useful Idiots would believe their lies, no matter what.

As long as it's in opposition to ANY stance or policy supported by the Left, they'll believe anything and everything laid in front of them.

ZERO critical thinking skills just to own the Left, which now includes getting infected, spreading a virus, and dying a horrible death.

Of course they knew election fraud allegations were false.

Trump had been saying the election would be fraudulent years before it even happened.

Did they know they were as baseless as Hillary's campaign when they tried to get everyone to believe the big lie about Russia collusion?

www.msn.com

Obviously a rhetorical question as we know a partisan Liberal will never, ever admit they were wrong or believed something that wasn't 100% or true or wasn't hypocritical. However, now that we have proof of 1) Hillary backing and engaging in lawsuits about losing the 2016 election claiming fraud and 2) Hillary's campaign witch hunt over Russia collusion was 100% fabricated...it only stands to reason and sound logic and Dems FINALLY apologize. If they want Trump's stupid base to apologize and admit they went overboard, one can only expect that behavior from the other side when it is relevant...and it is extremely relevant right now.

I know, DR Libs are going to immediately admonish this rhetoric and find ways to explain why Hillary and Dems were not wrong in any way and they are 100% trustworthy. We know this because Libs have a very hard time accepting the truth even when it is proven by people on their side. Nevertheless, it is relevant. And the cited article has some bias in it, no doubt. But don't let the bias distract you from the truth, just like you don't like when bias distracts Cons from accepting the truth.

In other words, if you want other people to practice humility, it will never happen if you yourself will not show any signs of humility. That's human nature. You can ignore it or say it doesn't matter all you want, but saying something doesn't make it true (no matter how hard extremists on both sides want it to be true).

The Trump campaign colluded with the Russians.

Why does HUMTAKE lie about that?

"Trump and Lawyers Knew Election Fraud Claims Were Baseless"

That's LITERALLY part of the reason why they went off in that trashy direction.

Wait, the guy(Trump) has been head ------ the country since 2015, and this 'Humtake' character is asking me to be humble when discussing him while he ('Humtake') attempts to head --- me?

It's no surprise that information that conflicts with the Liberal agenda is then called lying on DR. DR Libs even claim that Liberal fact checkers are lying if they present information that doesn't fit the Liberal agenda.

So they never prosecuted Trump for collusion. Never found evidence of it. They couldn't present any truthful support evidence. The lawyer in this discussion is proven to have lied. And the list of evidence that supports the fact that Trump did not collude grows and is all out there for any of you to read. But because it goes against what you guys want to believe then it means I'm lying. Here's a tip...I'm only giving you guys information that is out there already. I didn't come up with it. I didn't have anything to do with it. But it obviously makes you kids mad that your opinion and false accusations weren't correct so you have to call me names instead of actually accepting the evidence in front of you.

Was there collusion? Possibly. It's happened before in politics and both sides have accused the other multiple times of this in the past. They never said Trump was innocent but said they can't find him guilty.

"Wait, the guy(Trump) has been head ------ the country since 2015, and this 'Humtake' character is asking me to be humble when discussing him while he ('Humtake') attempts to head --- me?"

I know, I know...asking Libs to actually research and look at reality and facts instead of accepting every headline they read that they agree with is considered head ------- to Liberals. I get it, they make that very clear every day. But no matter how hard it is for Liberals to accept, it still is the basis of our laws. Dems have no problems when the facts support demonizing Reps for their wrongdoings but it is impossible for Dems to do the same in the other direction. When a Rep is confronted, he/she tries to change the subject or says they don't want to talk about it. When a Dem is confronted, they call you a liar, racist, etc. and do everything they can to target the messenger instead of the message. Politics 101 kids. Until you learn to accept it and try to hold your own party accountable, there is no way ever you will be able to hold the other party accountable. That's just the way it is.

Why was trump's hand picked totally inexperienced campaign manager, who was working FOR FREE, giving trump's campaign polling data to putin?

I guess running away was the preferred response.
