If--or once--a criteria level is met and President Trump invokes the Insurrection Act, federal law enforcement stops being the FBI, CIA and so on and falls under the Department of Defense, meaning the military. That would also transfer the power of the justice system (including the Supreme Court) to military courts for the duration.

. . .

This is entirely plausible to me since President Trump already threatened to invoke the Insurrection Act during the George Floyd riots. Also, in his 2018 Executive Order dealing with foreign interference in US elections, there are broad executive powers for dealing with agents of foreign enemies who attack the US election system--and these agents can be foreign or domestic. 

That means domestic agents (US citizens) could certainly and legally be handed over to the military if the Insurrection Act is invoked.

Add this to the news that President Trump has decapitated the civilian leadership of the Pentagon and put his own man in, has gutted specific parts of the Department of Homeland Security, and so on, and that the US Army confiscated Scytl servers in Frankfurt, with Sydney Powell saying 4 different countries with interests contrary to those of the US were hooked into those servers, and now L Lin Wood talking ominously about "difficult times" ahead that may seem confusing to a lot of people, and I give this scenario a more than decent chance of being real--or at least part of it.

I have also heard the special forces level people of the DoD can't stand the FBI, CIA, Obama people, etc., and they love the direction President Trump has taken the country. They're sick and fed up with all the bullshit and they would love nothing better than to be ordered to clean this mess up. So there is a lot of enthusiasm for this scenario among the special forces troops.

I don't know if anything in the above has anything to do with the tweet below by Emerald Robinson (the White House Correspondent for Newsmax), but I can't find specifically what Emerald is referring to.

Why indeed? And how is it involved?

 

Also, re Sidney, Emerald made a very intriguing tweet.

It is true that Sidney is geared toward President Trump insofar as he won legitimately without cheating. If she thought he cheated, she would be his worst enemy.

Does she believe Doug Collins did not win legitimately? If that is the case, I can see where that would cause friction with some people around President Trump. (I doubt he would condone winning by election cheating, but i believe some of those around him might get real pissy about this if they thought this would knock Doug Collins out.)

To a woman like Sidney Powell, wrong is wrong no matter who did it. 

She commands a goddam Kraken on Steroids as her Avenging Angel, too. Hell, she might even be the Kraken.

More about Sidney Powell.

This isn't a whole lot, but it's something. And at least it is correct information and not the shit-show with flies buzzing all over.

I got the following information and/or links to information from Michael Flynn Jr. over at Parler right now.

 

1. An additional statement from Sidney.

STATEMENT FROM SIDNEY POWELL TO "WE THE PEOPLE"

Quote

I agree with the campaign's statement that I am not part of the campaign's legal team. I never signed a retainer agreement or sent the President or the campaign a bill for my expenses or fees. 
 
 My intent has always been to expose all the fraud I could find and let the chips fall where they may--whether it be upon Republicans or Democrats. 
 
 The evidence I'm compiling is overwhelming that this software tool was used to shift millions of votes from President Trump and other Republican candidates to Biden and other Democrat candidates.  We are proceeding to prepare our lawsuit and plan to file it this week.  It will be epic. 
 
We will not allow this great Republic to be stolen by communists from without and within or our votes altered or manipulated by foreign actors in Hong Kong, Iran, Venezuela, or Serbia, for example, who have neither regard for human life nor the people who are the engine of this exceptional country. 
 
 #WeThePeople elected Donald Trump and other Republican candidates to restore the vision of America as a place of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

Sidney Powell

See? She never was a formal member of the campaign's legal. Not even a retainer.

 

2. A statement from about 4 hours ago from Jenna Ellis, the lawyer who made the announcement that Sidney was not a member of the "Trump Legal Team."

image.png

Does that sound like there is friction among them? Or anything close to what the mainstream press is saying?

 

3. For full understanding, take a look at the man behind the curtain and you will see it all. 

By sundance from The Last Refuge (my bold in text):

Republican Business Interests Separate From Sidney Powell…

Quote

When it was clear that candidate Donald Trump would win the republican presidential nomination in March/April 2016 the RNC, specifically Reince Priebus, salivated at getting their hands on the Trump campaign donor files. Politics is a big business.

Historically the GOP was dependent on big major donors and Wall Street for support, but the Trump small donor army shattered all republican records for contributions and showed a completely new grassroots donor base.  Tens of millions of middle-class Americans fueled the MAGA movement and stunned the republican establishment.

As an outcome of that massive data-file, and the contractual agreements to share with the Republican National Committee, the RNC became flush with money and transmitted the file to other GOP members in down ballot races.   Essentially Trump represented access to millions of previously hidden Americans, that’s why your emails and phones blew up in 2020 with pleas for contributions from every outlier GOP entity; the vultures in the business…

Within the business part of the GOP there are massive territorial fights amid those who live on the donations from within political campaigns.  The Trump MAGA file is being exploited like a bloody carcass dropped into a pool of piranha.  Once you know how the business end works, then a lot of other stuff makes sense.  Including this:

This is all about who is getting paid by the campaign and RNC.  The Trump campaign isn’t going to reimburse Sidney Powell for any expenses, nor is she allowed to make offers of financial payment from the GOP or Trump campaign.  The vultures assembling and protecting their paychecks do not want Powell getting paid, nor do they want any financial liability.  That’s all this statement is.

This statement by the Trump Campaign has nothing to do with Donald Trump, it is directly related to those interests who derive financial benefit from the Trump campaign.  The same network of vultures exists on the DNC side of the equation and they exploit Bernie Sanders donor files.

RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel has enjoyed a high life of cocktail parties and lavish expenditures as a result of her position and control over the Trump data files; so too have a host of other entities and organizations that have been sending you text messages for money.  That’s just how they roll….

That announcement is all about money; nothing more.

Carry on…

 

 

But don't feel sorry for Sidney. Once she pulls this off, I have no doubt she will be invited to be a cabinet member, possibly head of the FBI or even Attorney General.

Man, will the Kraken roar then.

Also,

Merlin,

So what? Yourself.

That has absolutely nothing to do with what I said.

Earlier this month, not even two weeks ago, Sidney set up her own site for donations. She stopped that one and just now did another one.

And that means something more than she set up a site to receive donations a couple of weeks ago?

sigh...

For the reader, Sidney said she did not receive a retainer nor did she bill anything to the Trump campaign.

She was never a formal member of the Trump Legal Team.

Done.

Did and does she want to get paid? Obviously. Will she keep this litigation going even if she has to pay for everything out of her own pocket? People who know her say she will. I believe them.

Now back to the mighty Internet warriors heroically saving truth and something-or-the-other from destruction though search engine ping-pong and gotcha-burgers.

Merlin,

The facts won't change because you want them to change.

Sidney probably was going to be part of Trump's Legal Team.

But they never formalized anything.

You don't have to like that for it to be true.

And since Jenna is issuing positive statements about Sidney, it looks like her efforts are quite welcome by the Trump Legal Team.

I have a great idea, though. Why don't we make this discussion all about Merlin and his gotcha-burgers? 

That should be far more interesting than what Sydney Powell will be filing this week to overturn the Georgia election and the massive smear campaign against her right now.

:evil:

Here's an interesting curiosity from Pam Geller.

Do you remember a few years ago with WikiLeaks leaked a bunch of hacking tools of the CIA in something called "Vault 7"?

It turns out, one of those hacking tools was called Kraken.

:)

“KRAKEN” is a CIA Hacking Program

What makes this pertinent is that (according to different reports) the Scytl server farm the US ARMY recently raided in Frankfurt was was the same one the CIA was using to spy on foreign powers and hack their informatics systems.

And, maybe, hack the voting machines of US elections...

It's a fascinating read.

There are direct quotes from Giuliani among others. That is good sourcing.

“Sidney Powell is practicing law on her own,” said Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani and another lawyer for Trump, Jenna Ellis, in a statement. “She is not a member of the Trump Legal Team. She is also not a lawyer for the President in his personal capacity.”

I recall SP saying she isn't good at math. That others could attend to that. In Bannons' War Room on YouTube she aligned herself with people who knew others with "direct" information about Hammer and Scorecard not just the ex-General who by the way hasn't served in 20 yrs. He simply referenced software and its coder. Both he and SP seemed to be telling a story heard rather than having first hand information. As much as she seemed to know she couldn't say whether good guys or bad guys have the servers. Her rep rides on what happens with them.

As I think about it SP has unfinished business with Flynns' case. She may have deep pockets and be willing to put her weight against the Kracken.

I wonder what her (or her client) legal standing is since my smallish legalese  knows only she must have damages (as a voter?) etc. I haven't seen anything to suggest she's representing anyone other than Flynn.

She specializes in federal appellate practice where she's won reversal on 70% of cases. She's able to navigate the federal courts. Dont know where that has come into play yet.

Ellen,

Just looking at the Business Insider article, there's this beauty.

Quote

Sources close to the president told The New York Times' Maggie Haberman...

I read a comment in an article earlier and it applies here.

Have we known these "sources close to the president" to be right about anything? Anything?

Even when they are in the ball park, lots of worms always come in the apple.

I add to that, have we known these "sources close to the president" to outright lie? Yup. One time after another going all the way back to what they said about Michael Flynn in the beginning and everything else in between--all during President Trump's first term.

The one thing we know for sure is that when these sources get exposed or come forth, they are almost always establishment warmongering Never-Trumpers.

People who don't like Trump constantly rely on sources like that. Sources like that, to them, are where they get the information they believe is most credible and the information they tend to share the most with others as fact.

This is what the mainstream press is trying to kill and can't.

As Rush Limbaugh says about President Trump's bond with his supporters, the press did not make that, so the press cannot kill it. Only Trump himself can kill it and he never will.

Sydney Powell came out of nowhere and righted a wrong--a judicial travesty--for Michael Flynn. She is doing that now re Dominion and Smartmatic.

That's a bond the press cannot touch for as much as it mocks her and lies about her.

TF,

When she took that asshole Andrew Weismann (the "attack dog" of the Mueller Team) to the Supreme Court in an earlier case, she got his crap overturned by unanimous decision.

How often is the Supreme Court unanimous on anything these days?

Sidney is brutal when she is on her game.

Hidden source, granted, but I haven't seen people like Emerald making up a string of lies based on such sources, so I can't vouch for her source. But it does seem like she believes her source, not in a CYA way the fake news media does time after time, but in a trust kind of way.

Sydney Powell has been retweeting a thread of 45 tweets that starts with the one below. I presume that since she has retweeted so much of this, she agrees with it.

To make it easier to read, I am providing the texts and links in the tweets in one group. After you read it, you will see just how badly the mainstream media sucks as a source of information.

The story of Sidney Powell is the story of David and Goliath, over and over. And, man, can she wield a sling. :) 

Also, the person tweeting, Pasquale "Pat" Scopelliti, screwed up the numbering of tweets a bit. He went from 1-33, then started over at 24 and went from 24-35. So that comes to a total of 45 tweets.

1)
23 November 2020

What an amazing American Story. First she gives her all to saving @GenFlynn.

Then she turns to fight the swamp over the greatest election steal ever.

===General Flynn tweet quoted from here===
@SidneyPowell1 has been suspended from Twitter for 12 hours. She understands the WH press release & agrees with it. She is staying the course to prove the massive deliberate election fraud that robbed #WeThePeople of our votes for President Trump & other Republican candidates.

2)
To my understanding, here's how the story begins. Rudy and Jenna decided to post a notification which, on first blush, looks like they're distancing themselves and the campaign from Sidney.

From Jenna Ellis:
image.png

3)
What a phenomenal development. There are two immediate interpretations that arise. First, Jenna and Rudy appear to distance themselves from Sidney's work. Second, as opposed to distancing themselves, they are actually putting Sidney forward. Again, what a story!

4)
In case you haven't seen it for yourself, yet, here is Sidney's statement on topic.

image.png

5)
Those are the facts of the story. We have to guess at the whys. 

Here's my most important guess. The entire Federal Apparatus of the United States is compromised. WH, DOJ, FBI, IC, both Houses of Congress, even SCOTUS albeit less so now than before, the Federal Courts, etc.

6)
By WH, I do NOT mean POTUS. Rather, I mean the WH as the location of the Executive Branch of our Government. Our Executive Branch has fought @realDonaldTrump throughout his 1st term and, I guess, there are powerful forces still at play there, opposing him.

7)
If I'm right, it gives context to the Trump Campaign statement. As opposed to distancing themselves, they are absolutely putting @SidneyPowell1 forward. They're explaining that they work with her, but she is a 100% independent actor, NOT under their control.

😎
Let's stroll back to the $1.7 billion that Obama loaded onto a plane in palettes, flying to Iran in the middle of the night, and all in foreign currency. Forget the $150 billion total, focus only on the $1.7 B. Why? Because it was absolutely illegal to the point of treason.

9)
And yet, the Obama apologists and protectors were able to convert this into a 100% legal act, no problem. Imagine that. Why send foreign currency and not simply wire the cash by normal measures? Because our sanctions against Iran made that almost impossible to do.

10)
Do you see? Any illegal act may be made "legal" by the DC Swamp's powers. And what, exactly are those powers? They are the near complete corrupt control over virtually every lever of government power.

11)
In the $1.7 billion all in foreign currency case, it was the Treasury Department that provided Obama all the legal cover he might need. It's a painful read, but if you're interested, here's the AP version of the story.

US payment of $1.7 billion to Iran made entirely in cash

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration acknowledged late Tuesday that its transfer of $1.7 billion to Iran earlier this year was made entirely in cash, using non-U.S. currency, as Republican...

12)
So picture a White House able to employ such mechanisms, and the people who executed those orders. You have to picture this, and I'm going to help you. We're going to turn to medieval castles in order to illustrate.

13)
Castles work. They are extremely difficult to break into. Yet, there is always a weakness in even the greatest defensive system. In the back of a castle there is often something called a postern gate. It's where food and supplies are allowed in.

14)
Soldiers are often dashingly handsome with all their daring-do. They're often able to catch the eye of a pretty servant, typically a milkmaid. If the milkmaid opens the postern gate to the handsome soldier flirting with her, the enemy forces may then invade the castle.

15)
It is my understanding that the vast majority of castle defeats occured this way, as opposed to all out battle. Castles work. But a single milkmaid can defeat all the castle's power.

16)
To understand the DC Swamp you have to picture countless 1,000s of corruptible milkmaids. They permeate every office, staff, and department of our vast government. Each and every one of them has the power to defeat the castle of Fortress America.

17)
The Washington Post is something like the Milkmaids' United Union of Government Employees. It is one of their great mouthpieces and megaphones. Here's their story on topic.

Was Obama’s $1.7 billion cash deal with Iran prohibited by U.S. law?

The Fact Checker was challenged on Twitter. So we rechecked the facts.

18)
What's all this have to do with @SidneyPowell1, you ask? My theory is that the WH has realized it cannot depend upon the DC Swamp Milkmaids to get the job done, to save America from criminal theft of our election. It's going to take an incorruptible outsider.

19)
Let's talk about money. Every dollar the WH pays to anyone for anything comes from taxes. It comes from us at metaphorical gun point. We have to pay taxes regardless of our consent. Dissent to paying taxes is illegal. We won't bring up Thomas Jefferson right now, right?

20)
The flow of tax dollars through the government to its minions is simply and absolutely corrupted. The DC Swamp has leveraged players at every check point ensuring compliance with the Swamp's mandates and there's just no way to stop that on a dime.

21)
So that's my theory. 

@SidneyPowell1 is NOT paid by tax dollars, and has taken on America's case at her own risk. Risk? Yeah. She might spend every ounce of her time, energy, knowledge, and capability with no fee or payment at all. She's at 100% financial risk.

22)
This brings us to a familiar topic, if you've followed the @GenFlynn case. With infinite resources, the government used every power it had to break this man. Not only did he rack up millions of dollars of legal debt, his entire financial life and wellbeing was on the line.

23)
No man is wealthier than the government. When the government decides to dedicate its full resources to the destruction of a man, what man can face that government in all its vast powers? When was the last time we heard about Paul Manafort? How's he doing right now?

24)
Our hero Sidney has dedicated every ounce of her ability to saving America from the loss of our democracy. A democracy may be stolen. A republic can't be merely stolen, it has to be destroyed. But one can easily buy the vote. This is the great risk of democracy.

25)
There is no way to overestimate the significance of Venezuela's story in all this. First there was Cuba. Communism won Cuba. Try to imagine the significance of that. Having lost almost all of its satellite nations, Communism still held Cuba.

26)
And then along came Venezuela. How did Communism take down this wealthy nation? None of us knew, before. It always felt wrong, but after all, it was South America and they're all crazy down there! So, we allowed this. We have to linger there. Who? Who allowed this?

27)
He ascended in 1999, which places him under Clinton 1. But at the very end of his term. So, Bush 43 obviously allowed Communism to take control over Venezuela during his entire 8 years. No need to discuss much about Obama and Venezuela. Obviously.

28)
No one other than @SidneyPowell1 would ever bring any of this up in real time America today. Hugo Chavez did NOT win the democratic vote honestly. He stole it. How? With the help of the CIA and its technology. The CIA placed Chavez in power. Our CIA.

29)
By herself alone, Sidney is telling us that our American election of 2020 was stolen by the exact methods of Hugo Chavez' take over of Venezuela. If you want an Communist Amerika, allow this travesty of an election. Stolen elections are the greatest power of Communism.

30)
Let's talk about money again. Taking a case to court costs money. Courts are expensive. They are the abode of the great and the mighty. They tend to offer precisely as much justice as money can buy. Courts are money machines. Please know that.

31)
Sidney is taking the case of #WeThePeople to court at her own risk. It will cost millions upon millions of dollars to succeed. Court is expensive, and the DC Swamp controls the courts. Imagine Sidney's risk. Her courage is to fight on, no matter what.

32)
What is the government? It has evolved into that power that demands our fees, our taxes, and then uses those fees to propagate its own power. Please mind, this is the 100% opposite of its original design. Listen.

First we fuck Flynn, then we fuck Trump.

Remember that?

33)
Money. The Swamp always knows that it has more money than anyone may who attempts to brook its evil power. As the prosecutors have infinite funds to expend attacking any defendant they wish, so also does the Swamp in attacking any who affront its power.

===AT THIS POINT THE COUNTING CONTINUES AS IF 24 WERE THE NEXT NUMBER===

24)
I first came to understand this while supporting @GenFlynn. His limited resources were attacked by an infinitely funded special prosecutor, facing zero accountability over the use of his vast power.

25)
Follow it out...

Prosecution has INFINITE financial resources.

Defendant, no matter how wealthy, has LIMITED resources.

Money ends up being the greatest disparity of justice in America. All the Justice money can buy. That's what you get. Two bars of law,

26)
What we learned in @GenFlynn's case was this. We HAD to provide resources vastly beyond his own limited means, if he was to stand a chance in facing down the evil government powers mounted against him. To do so, we built his legal defense fund.

Michael T. Flynn Legal Defense Fund

Military Career Lieutenant General (Retired) Michael T. Flynn (“Mike”) honorably served in the United States Army for over 33 years in a variety of conventional and special forces assignments, with...

27)
Boldly embarking on her own legal mission to save America from a stolen vote, Sidney needs exactly that same help. She can't and won't ask for WH dollars. Rather, she's asking us to help.

https://defendingtherepublic.org

28)
Sidney tell us:

"The future of our Republic is at stake. The left, the media, and a complicit Republican Establishment are attempting to steal this election through a staggering voter fraud operation. The time to fight is now!"

29)
We must pause on the "complicit Republican Establishment." The very ls FOX clipse I forced myself to watch was on Martha's show. Both Mark Thiessen and Victor Davis Hansen were on. I like them both. Yet Mark had published an article in the Washington Post.

30)
In his post, Mark emphatically encouraged Trump to concede this election so that he might gather his support to win a 2nd term in 2024. This is beyond hellaciously bad counsel. You don't win the future by conceding the present. That is simply NOT logical. Hogwash.

31)
On the edge of my seat, I waited for Hansen to disprove Theissan's illogical counsel. I was left wanting. Hansen agreed. Pull back. Surrender. Retreat. Live to fight another day. That was Hansen's counsel as well. Yet another TV commentator I have loved, fallen.

32)
If Joe Biden ascends to the seat of the Oval Office, America will set its mode of deceit. We will have consciously chosen to become a nation of liars. Biden is a liar. In full. In absolute. His corruption ensures that he cannot honestly lead America.

33)
What's more, America saw through him, and voted @realDonaldTrump back in for his 2nd term in an overwhelming landslide. That stolen landslide is precisely what Sidney has dedicated everything she's got to correcting.

34)
That stolen landslide is what each and very turncoat traitor Republican supports right now. Romney? Check. Christie. Neither one of them gives a flying hoot about America. Their only care is for themselves.

35)
#ITrustSidney

Who do you trust? What we need today are heroes.

Can you help us? Can you be a hero?

I say you can. Support Trump now. Hear Powell's account. Give if you can. If not, no worries. Put the case forward here at Twitter, too.

Thread ends at #35.

Michael,

Note along with the unidentified sources the casting of Sidney Powell as a kook:

Quote

The attorney's outlandish conspiracy theories apparently became too much even for a president whose political identity is founded on stirring suspicion of "deep state" elites.

Likewise in "The Hill" article:

Quote


The Trump campaign on Sunday sought to distance itself from attorney Sidney Powell after she made a series of increasingly convoluted and baseless allegations of widespread nationwide election fraud.

The "Fox News"report isn't as loaded in its wording but still takes the approach that Powell is being "distanced."

FYI, I'm seeing this being debated, now.

TG,

Link please?

Outside of this, I've been bopping around JAG and other places trying to confirm what I can.

The best I have been able to come up with is that civilian lawyers can defend clients in military courts like in court martials.

I don't know about prosecutions, yet. Every place I look, instead of information, I get a buttload of ads for attorneys. :) (Some have easy payment plans, too. :) )

I did come across a very interesting and partially relevant video, though.

 

I just now looked at the Marshall Report site to see if anything changed and it looks like Dianne Marshall has corrected something I was going to mention, but I was still looking into it.

As I understand things so far, there is no special registration given to a civilian lawyer to be able to practice in the military justice system that I am aware of except, maybe, low level things like court formalities and paperwork.

Any civilian lawyer can do that if they know military law. (Maybe even if they don't, although I'm not sure who would want to be that stupid.)

Which means Sidney is, by far, not the "only" one who can prosecute treason in a military tribunal. According to Marshall in a correction she added, that phrase should be changed to Sidney is the "best" one.

Still, for now, I am confused about the prosecution part. Would the US government hire Sidney to prosecute treason? even as an additional counsel to the military one? Would the military hire her? Can an individual move a treason action against a third party?

I'm really unsure about any of that. I don't know much about treason cases. At least not yet.

There is one thing I am sure about, though. Sidney is doing what she is doing with some heavy military brass standing right behind her in her shadow. I can't see him (or them), but I can feel him.

:)

Which means Sidney is, by far, not the "only" one who can prosecute treason in a military tribunal. According to Marshall in a correction she added, that phrase should be changed to Sidney is the "best" one.

Still, for now, I am confused about the prosecution part. Would the US government hire Sidney to prosecute treason? even as an additional counsel to the military one? Would the military hire her? Can an individual move a treason action against a third party?

I'm really unsure about any of that. I don't know much about treason cases. At least not yet.

There is one thing I am sure about, though. Sidney is doing what she is doing with some heavy military brass standing right behind her in her shadow. I can't see him (or them), but I can feel him.

This is what I first saw contesting it...I personally don't know what to make of it.
