Lying About Lies?

Trump campaign lawyers Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis on Sunday released a statement disavowing its association with Michael Flynn’s attorney Sidney Powell, claiming she had nothing to do with the president or his campaign. The statement from the Trump campaign said Powell was freestyling on her own, not under the aegis of the campaign.

“Sidney Powell is practicing law on her own,” read a joint statement from Giuliani and Ellis. “She is not a member of the Trump Legal Team. She is also not a lawyer for the President in his personal capacity.”

.

This is delicious -- The Great Dictator's legal team falls apart, literally, while Microsoft News takes the side of Rudy Giuliani against Sydney Powell who claims that she can blow up the whole Electronic Voting Game. Nope, says the "journalism" coming from the Bill Gates empire -- Powell's claims are simply labeled false without citation or explanation.

Interesting conundrum.

Unless Trump fires Rudy, it means that Trump wants no part of Powell's claims. As he is a pathological liar, it is usually a safe bet to figure that whatever he says is false. So if he disavows Powell's tale, that means it is most likely true. Or does it?

One thing is for sure -- Powell will not get a platform to tell her story. Saturday morning on Lou Dobbs was as far as she got.

Luckily our national media have abandoned the feckless "neutrality" that used to be called objectivity. Now, we got Microsoft News and a host of other national news platforms that tell us whom to believe and whom to laugh at as a liar.

Relieves us all of the burden of thinking.

to tell her story. She stonewalled him and came up with nothing, no evidence whatsoever to support her claims, not even an explanation of where or how she supposedly obtained this information or why she has not revealed her evidence.

Carlson says she "became angry" when pressed to provide any specific details of her story. She refused his offer of a popular national platform to tell her story, and he called her on it and told his viewers what had occurred. This makes her look very silly, at best.

That's probably why Team Trump is now claiming she is not part of their legal team, despite even trump himself recently touting her as a key member of their legal team. But this is so Trump, isn't it? Reality Bites? Just pretend it never happened. Easy peasy.

And went on the Dobbs show because the ghost of Ayn Rand told her to make up a sack of shit, just to see if Lou would bite on it. Then she reversed her ectoplasmic course and told her to tell Carlson to pound sand.

None of it makes the slightest bit of sense, coming or going.

Is this a great country or what?

@on the cusp Great point!

Who is paying her and how much? Seems like a waste of money at this point, unless she comes forward with something juicy. Hmmmmm.

I am imagining the meeting in a garage with Deep Thorax, a bag man for Fascism, who paid this life-long upper crud lawyer to make herself look like a raving lunatic. Great drama!

Thank God for folks who will not abide unsubstantiated accusations!!!!

I think she is a genuine crusader who hates lies and corruption in government. There are so few like her that people can't believe that she is willing to take on the whole mess of election cheating. Those who know her say that she doesn't make things up, that she has evidence if she says she does. She's a lawyer who tries her case in court, not on Fox news. Moreover, she doesn't allow herself to be pushed around by media stars. More credit to her.

Aren't people here rooting for discovery and proof of Dominion software election rigging? Does the possibility that Trump might benefit make many people hope that she doesn't succeed? In my view, the country is going to get worse (in different ways) with either Trump or Biden; getting honest elections would be most important. If the country loses much more faith in fair voting, it's over in its present form.

@wetterau @wetterau .

I really do not know about Powell, but I have seen this That Person Is Nuts routine before and it always makes me more interested in hearing what the Nutso Person has to say.

I appreciate this thought very much:

We have it on the authority of an internet poster who guarantees with a check for $250 that elections cannot be rigged -- or at least that nobody could prove it beyond a reasonable doubt. Talk about moving goal posts . . .

Over the years, I have learned that whenever somebody gets on television and says I am going to prove something, usually it fizzles out, whatever it is.

But when other people jump in and accuse that somebody of being insane or evil or suffering from drug withdrawal, all I can figure is that those other people really want for us to disbelieve what that somebody says -- before it gets said -- and, for reasons of their own.

Time will tell two things -- one, whether this joker in the deck of Media Bullshit ever gets to tell her story on national TV; and two, whether her story has any merit. If you do not get to hear it, it probably has a lot of merit. If you hear it, which is likely in this nuthouse called America, it will most definitely be a load of crap. That is the only reason it will ever be allowed a national platform.

Pravda Logic is the only way to look at the American Scene.

After some nosing around at various websites, I've learned that Sydney Powell has stated that she will file her lawsuit of "Biblical Proportions" (her description, not mine) sometime this week. It wasn't all that clear to me exactly in what jurisdiction this suit will be filed. Georgia? Perhaps.

In any event, should the suit not occur, I suspect we will have an answer of a type. Should the suit be brought with no evidence, only hearsay and theories, we will have learned more still.

Maybe she has the goods. I have no idea. But, if I don't see some headlines pretty damn soon - even if it's only in alternative media - I'm going to have file Sydney Powell info in the same folder that is used to store QAnon info. That folder is round.

If the intent is to "correct" the result and if you have proof, the time to unveil the evidence is before the audit.

Yep. They be running outta time.

Like Mr. Rogers said:

You got to know when to hold 'em
Know when to fold 'em
Know when to walk away

It's getting late. If they've got a hand, they're going to have to play those cards.
