Welcome to Day + 48. Has anyone else noticed the massive conflicts of interest and intimidation occurring in our so-called “free and open elections?
Another retraction demand to Sidney Powell…
RE: Legal Notice and Retraction Demand from Smartmatic USA Corp.
Dear Ms. Powell:
I am litigation counsel for Smartmatic USA Corp (“Smartmatic”). You have made numerous statements and postings regarding Smartmatic in connection with the November 3, 2020 election (the “2020 U.S. election”) through various publications. I identify some of those statements below and refer to the totality of your statements regarding Smartmatic from November 2020 through today as the “Statements” for purposes of this letter. I am writing to provide you Smartmatic’s response to the Statements and put you on notice of potential legal claims.You have engaged in a concerted disinformation campaign against Smartmatic. You appeared on numerous news networks, including but not limited to, Fox News, Fox Business, and Newsmax, and told millions of viewers that Smartmatic was created under the direction of Hugo Chávez, that its software was designed to fix elections, and that Smartmatic conspired with others to defraud the American people and fix the 2020 U.S. election by changing, inflating, and deleting votes. Through your appearances on news networks and published Tweets, you have spread lies about a company that had absolutely nothing to do with the voting that took place in areas at the heart of the “conspiracies” discussed following the 2020 U.S. election. <Source>
Noted defamation lawyer, L. Lin Wood replied by letter. “I represent Sidney Powell. I have carefully reviewed your letter of December 15, 2020. I am not impressed. Ms. Powell retracts nothing. File your lawsuit.” It is believed, by myself and others, that Sidney Powell is trying to goad Dominion, SmartMatic, and other organizations and individuals into lawsuits to effect discovery.
Déjà vu all over again – another opportunity for the Supreme Court to do the right thing and say follow the constitution or suffer the consequences…
This is the Trump Campaign’s first independent U.S. Supreme Court filing without the usual attorneys. It is not that any of the cases being filed will affect the election, but that it will influence key Congressional delegations to challenge the submitted slates of electors and to force a 2-hour discussion and vote on each challenge.
“While the tellers announce the results, Members may object to the returns from any individual state as they are announced. Objections to individual state returns must be made in writing by at least one Member each of the Senate and House of Representatives. If an objection meets these requirements, the joint session recesses and the two houses separate and debate the question in their respective chambers for a maximum of two hours. The two houses then vote separately to accept or reject the objection. They then reassemble in joint session, and announce the results of their respective votes. An objection to a state’s electoral vote must be approved by both houses in order for any contested votes to be excluded.” <Congressional Research Service>

Continuing selective censorship of one of Trump’s attorneys by the social media tech tyrants…
Conflicts of interest…
It appears that numerous governors, state officials, and others are afraid of losing their well-paying jobs in these economically-challenging times or are afraid of being censured by the left’s so-called “cancel culture.” And that also includes judges and lawyers who are afraid to hold evidentiary hearings or represent challenges to the election.
As we approach one of the most pivotal elections in the history of the United States, an election which will determine whether or not the progressive socialist democrats will be given a free hand in our government or be impeded by constitutional checks and balances, we find that the State of Georgia, with evidence of electoral fraud, is preparing to allow the same flawed system to determine the outcome of this crucial run-off election.
Georgia County Elections Board Dismisses Challenges to Voter Roll
“Challenges to more than 16,000 people on the voter registration list in a Georgia county have been dismissed by an elections board. The Cobb County Board of Elections and Registration voted on Dec. 18 to dismiss three complaints that sought to remove voters from the compilation.”
[OCS: Mouthing platitudes and hiding being unspecified laws. Can anyone believe that some unspecified federal law prevents a state from keeping accurate, true, and faithful records, the absence of which promotes fraud? Where are the results of investigations into suspected problems and criminal referrals when necessary?]
“Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, a Republican, said in a statement released by True the Vote: ‘I’ve said since Election Day that I must follow the law in the execution of our elections, and I’ve also encouraged Georgians to report any suspected problems for my office to investigate. Though federal law restricts our ability to update our voter registration lists, the Elector Challenge is a vehicle under our law to ensure voter integrity. I support any effort that builds faith in our election system that follows the proper legal procedure.’”
[OCS: This is prima facie probable cause that should have ended in an investigation, not a summary dismissal. Who cares what one of the county’s attorneys may think, this is clearly a matter for investigation and the Court;s determination.]
“After meeting to determine if probable cause existed for the three challenges, the Cobb Board of Elections and Registration said it denied all three. According to reports on the virtual meeting, the vote was unanimous.”
“‘I don’t believe this is probable cause to challenge these voters,’ Gregg Litchfield, one of the county’s attorneys, said during the meeting, Patch reported. ‘The mere production of a voter registration database compared with a national change-of-address registry is not sufficient.’ He said the list of voters didn’t distinguish between permanent and temporary change of address, which is a division that can be found from the National Change of Law Address Registry.”
[OCS: What is the probative value of proposed evidence that serious flaws exist in the electoral process before an election? Is this another case ignored – like the one ignored by Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, John Roberts that request a reminder for a state to follow federal and state constitutional law. By not ruling, the Supreme Court let unconstitutional behavior stand and set the conditions for a fraudulent election. Show me where conditions in the National Voter Registration Act knowingly encourage fraudulent elections.]
“Additionally, tinkering with the list cannot be done this soon before the Jan. 5, 2021, Senate runoff elections, he said, referring to conditions in the National Voter Registration Act.”
[OCS: How can some County Commissioners come to a determination without allowing a complainant to speak? And, we must point out that the County attorneys at the proceedings are advocates– not for justice, the rule of law, or “We the People,” but for the potentially corrupt county officials, acting in their official capacity.]
In an emailed statement, Shepherd told The Epoch Times that the county board “utterly failed in its duty to keep elections in Cobb secure by refusing to investigate whether any of the over 16,000 voters who have filled out and submitted a change of address form with the US Postal Service showing they have changed their residence to a new one outside the State of Georgia have, in fact, moved outside the state and are ineligible to vote in Georgia under Georgia law.”
“The county attorney, Daniel White, made several assumptions about my ability to provide further proof, however, despite my attendance, I was not allowed to answer his challenges or otherwise speak in defense of my own petition,” he said. <Source>
Former Wisconsin Judge: ‘Our Court System Has Been Deeply Intimidated by the Left’
A former judge from Wisconsin, who is now representing the Trump campaign in the state, told lawmakers this week that he believes intimidation by the left has prevented lawyers and judges from accepting and hearing election fraud cases.
“We have to acknowledge that the court system has been deeply intimidated by the left, just as the lawyers have been intimidated,” James Troupis told the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee on Wednesday. “And that’s a sad, sad state of affairs.”
During the Senate hearing, Troupis, one of the witnesses, explained why he decided to represent the campaign in their effort to challenge election results when many lawyers refused. He said that he believes many prominent law firms did not want to participate in the election lawsuits due to a fear of retaliation by the left.
“One of the reasons I was called because virtually every major law firm in this country and in this city refused to represent the president. Not because of the lack of merit in his claims—we’ve certainly demonstrated that there’s merit—but because of the cancel culture,” Troupis said.
“Because of the environment that has been created by the left that has intimidated lawyers so that they can’t be here. They’re not here, from the giant law firms, precisely because they were ordered by their management committees and others that, ‘You cannot take those cases. The reasons you cannot take those cases is because our clients, or the Democrat party, or the incoming administration will remember that and they will hold it against you.'”
This comes as other lawyers representing the president and his campaign have revealed that they have been harassed or threatened following their decision to take up election cases. <Source>
Meanwhile, the national mainstream media ignores hundreds of years of investigative journalism and remains silent or provides false “context” to the news.
One need only look at the suppression of the Hunter Biden laptop findings or their mischaracterization as potential Russian disinformation to see evidence of a corrupt media. Why is the mainstream media not investigating individual stories of election fraud? Why are they not all over attorney Lin Wood for suggesting that we need to find out if it was U.S. Supreme Court Justice John Roberts who appears twice in the flight log of aircraft controlled by pedophile Jeffrey Epstein? Will the media bear some of the responsibility if a corrupt, communist-compromised, mentally deficient President takes office due to their manipulation of legitimate stories and control over social platforms?
Then there is the case of the New York Times, America’s newspaper of record, or America’s Pravda if you believe what you read. How can they continue to cite anonymous sources with any degree of credibility after three-plus years of touting a factually false Trump-Russian hoax collusion without retraction or apology? How can they have any credibility when they claim “Mr. Trump asked about invoking martial law and deploying the military to “rerun” the election in a meeting with top advisers -- with only second-hand sources.
Trump Weighed Naming Election Conspiracy Theorist as Special Counsel
In a meeting at the White House on Friday, President Trump weighed appointing Sidney Powell, who promoted conspiracy theories about rigged voting machines, to investigate voter fraud.
Ms. Powell’s client, retired Lt. Gen. Michael T. Flynn, the former national security adviser whom the president recently pardoned, was also there, two of the people briefed on the meeting said. Some senior administration officials drifted in and out of the meeting. During an appearance on the conservative Newsmax channel this week, Mr. Flynn pushed for Mr. Trump to impose martial law and deploy the military to “rerun” the election. At one point in the meeting on Friday, Mr. Trump asked about that idea. Mr. Trump also asked about Ms. Powell being given security clearances to pursue her work, two of the people briefed on the meeting said. <Source>
Again with the anonymous second and third-hand sources who were not participants and were only “briefed” on the matter. As we have seen before, a low-level functionary with no direct connection to the President was falsely characterized as a senior White House official. And let us not forget it was the New York Times that labeled serious Obama scandals as “conspiracy theories” until testimony and documentary proof emerged to show that the theories were, indeed, fact. And yet, President Trump is characterizing the idea of “martial law” as fake news.
The more I see about the voting machines and the statistical analyses, the more I want to review and recount the actual ballots and tie them back to their original venues. This would prove or disprove counterfeit ballots as the real ones have hidden security codes and folds whereas the counterfeit ones may contain hidden codes that copiers place on documents and no folds or perfect fill-ins.
