  1. President Trump speaks, via Facebook. I embedded the whole thing in a Twitter post. Well worth a full listen. I will replace this with a slightly more informative text.
  2. Re the petition for some kind of Martial Law and associated round-ups and media shut-downs ... At the "We the People Convention" link, you can read the full text if you click the button at the bottom of the page. We DEMAND a Re-Vote NOW! | We the People Convention | wethepeopleconvention.org ~1500 words.
  3. Just released is a transcript of a hearing in the Georgia "Kraken" case: 20-11-29 Pearson v Kemp 120cv4809 F (democracydocket.com)
  4. That was then, and this is now: LIVE: Sidney Powell and Lin Wood Hold Press Conference in Atlanta 12/2/20 - YouTube
  5. He was taken for mental health evaluation, on an emergency Baker Act hold. Brad Parscale gave an interview to Fox News Martha MacCallum which was made public today: Brad Parscale accuses 'D-level' 'talking heads' around Trump of forcing him out of 2020 campaign The Story | Fox News
  6. From an unnamed 'DOJ spokesperson,' my bolding: "Some media have incorrectly reported that the Department has concluded its investigation of election fraud and announced an affirmative finding of no fraud in the election. That is not what the Associated Press reported nor what the Attorney General stated. The Department will continue to receive and vigorously pursue all specific and credible allegations of fraud as expeditiously as possible." Barr: No evidence of fraud that’d change election outcome (apnews.com) I think I said something about "reading past the headlines," and s
  7. Of grapevines and grapes. What I think about incoming "plausible" claims and tellings is that among my first cognitive tasks is to find out the earliest instance of a claim being made. Going to the original source makes me feel like a "researcher," which as with QAnon "research," gives a warm inner glow. More seriously, it's hard to know what to spend time with. Which tellings of which stories contain enough associated claims so that we can cross-check? Which claims may be re-tellings, or renovated stories that have a history (and previous challenges)? Where do you put your shovel in to
  8. Well, AP has over 3,000 employees. If you want to discover what William Barr had to say, AP broke the story -- under the byline of Mike Balsamo. Subsequent stories may or may not have the same level of detail. There are a few Trump-friendly media reports which can also offer details, according to your preferences, among which may be Breitbart, Red State, Gateway Pundit, The Blaze ... Updated.
  9. Here's a link to AP, who broke the story and offer the fullest details. It also came out today that John Durham has been given a designation of Special Counsel Prosecutor, which will shield his investigation from Presidential Interference (by, presumably, Biden). I think it is important to "read past the headlines" ... Barr: No evidence of fraud that’d change election outcome
  10. It's a question with a few entailments. A loaded question, as it were. Which particular appeal to the Court do you think will be the first accepted? I think the Krakenstein monster has met an unforeseen situation with The Villagers: Quo vadis? Barr: No evidence of fraud that’d change election outcome (apnews.com)
  11. QAnon "research rigor" already appears to have partially fused with Trumpism. In parallel, 8kun owner's son Ron Watkins is now cited as an authority in a Sidney Powell-led pleading. Some official electoral-fraud inquiry is live right now out of Michigan (in some ways a better organized version of the Arizona ballroom conflab). The embed should let you go back in time: Or on YouTube via Right Side Broadcasting.
  12. For those who will savour forty-five minutes of a man on his game; Bartiromo asked a couple of 'hard questions' but mostly let President Trump fire at will. From Factba.se. (295) Interview: Maria Bartiromo Interviews Donald Trump on Fox News - November 29, 2020 - YouTube Of course there has been less-than-fawning reaction to this appearance, but who cares about what "enemies" have to say, right?
  13. William, I do not. [...] I suspect the smartphone developers are using this same mentality in other normal functions and assuming users just somehow know. They don't see the world through the eyes of their users. They only see the world through their own eyes and, man, are they dazzled by what they come up with... To themselves, they are awesome and have no problem understanding how to use the device at all... btw - This goes for both sides. Sometimes Apple or Android make changes and simply expect apps to comply without telling anyone. Michael
  14. Michael, do you ever use a cellphone browswer to read OL? The problems with missing navigation options are only happening in the mobile (cell/tablet) displays. I think I was able to help Merlin navigate, as there are two links/URL at each comment in mobile displays of the OL code ... here is the key to getting where you want to on smaller displays:
  15. Here's a trailer for a fictional film called "Donald Trump The Chosen" -- I believe a previous cut was released in 2018. The new cut has COVID-19 and, well, the trailer does an adequate job featuring major themes and plot points: If you want to check out the full version, QAnonAnonymous gave this URL in their podcast shownotes yesterday. There is a copy at DropBox: Donald Trump The Chosen - Full Movie (4K).mp4 (dropbox.com) Details of cast and crew: DONALD TRUMP THE CHOSEN - The Hollywood Digest If you don't want to flout copyright watching a purloined or pirated copy,
