Attorney Sidney Powell Drops Massive Bomb: “We’ve Identified 450,000 Ballots That Miraculously Only Have a Vote For Joe Biden”

Powell claims that she has “identified over 450,000 ballots that miraculously only have a vote for Joe Biden on them and no other candidate.”

Attorney Sidney Powell said on Fox News. “To manufacture votes for Joe Biden. They’ve done it in every way imaginable, from having dead people vote in record numbers, to absolutely fraudulently creating ballots that exist only for voting for Biden. We’ve identified over 450,000 ballots that miraculously only have a vote for Joe Biden on them and no other candidate. If you look at Florida where things were done right you can see that that is how the rest of the country should have gone. But they also used an algorithm to calculate the number of votes they would need to flip. And they used computers to flip those votes from Trump to Biden and from other Republican candidates to their competitors also.”

This isn’t the only recent bomb that Powell has dropped. During a bombshell interview with Fox Business host Lou Dobbs, Powell called for an investigation into electronic ballot systems which may have changed “3 percent of the vote.”

“I think they need to investigate the likelihood that 3 percent of the vote changed [due to] preelection ballots collected digitally by using the Hammer and Scorecard programs,” she said during the interview.

“I think Hammer and Scorecard were used by Democratic operatives who had access through government access points,” she added. “They used them to illegally change votes. It’s been used against other countries. It’s just been changed recently [to be used] against our own citizens.”

McEnany Unveils 234 Pages Of Affidavits Alleging Election Irregularities In Michigan

https://www.zerohedge.com/political/mcenany-unveils-234-pages-affidavits-alleging-election-irregularities-michigan

Update: Read the affidavits and other evidence below:

Exhibit 1

Exhibit 2

Exhibit 3

Exhibit 4

*  *  *

Authored by Mimi Nguyen Ly via The Epoch Times,

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany late Tuesday announced 234 pages of what she said were sworn affidavits alleging election irregularities in a county in Michigan.

McEnany appeared alongside Republican National Committee Chair Ronna McDaniel on Fox News’ “Hannity,” where she shared several allegations listed in the affidavits—statements made under penalty of perjury - from Wayne County.

“They’re alleging - this is one county, Wayne County, Michigan - they are saying that there was a batch of ballots where 60 percent had the same signature,” she told host Sean Hannity.

“They’re saying that 35 ballots had no voter record but they were counted anyway, that 50 ballots were run multiple times through a tabulation machine.”

McEnany also shared details of another affidavit where a woman alleged that “her son was deceased but nevertheless somehow voted.”

“These are one of many many allegations in one county, and a county no less, where poll watchers were in many cases threatened with racial harassment, they were pushed out of the way, and Democrat challengers were handing out documents, how to distract GOP challengers,” she continued.

“These are real, and anyone who cares about transparency and the integrity of the system should want this to pursue to the discovery phase.”

On Monday, President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign filed a suit in Wayne County Circuit Court alleging voter fraud in ballot-counting procedures. The suit alleges county election officials allowed various fraudulent processing of votes, including telling poll workers to backdate ballots and not verify signatures on absentee ballots. Several witnesses have filed sworn affidavits attesting to alleged election fraud. The plaintiffs, two poll challengers, are seeking a temporary restraining order on ballot counting. The case is pending.

Late Tuesday, the Trump campaign announced the filing of a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court in the Western District of Michigan that alleges pervasive election irregularities and violations in Wayne County and seeks a review of the Dominion Voting software which caused glitches in several states.

A number of media outlets declared Democratic nominee Joe Biden president-elect on Nov. 7 after they projected victories for him in Pennsylvania and Nevada, putting him over the 270 electoral vote threshold, although the vote counts have not been completed in those states. Vote counts also continue in Georgia and Arizona. Georgia and Wisconsin will have recounts of the votes, where results initially yielded a Biden lead.

Trump has alleged voter fraud and said any declarations of victory are premature, with his campaign having launched multiple legal challenges in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Georgia, Arizona, Nevada, and Michigan. The president said on Tuesday that his campaign is making progress and said that he will ultimately be declared the winner of the 2020 election.

McDaniel told Hannity that the Trump campaign has received 11,000 incident reports and has compiled at least 500 affidavits from witnesses across various states.

“It is a long process and people need to be patient. The media keeps saying ‘where’s the evidence, where’s the evidence,’ because they’re not giving us time to show it,” she said.

“But even the evidence we’re putting forward they’re deciding ‘oh we’re not going to report it’ or ‘we’re going to break away from press conferences’ and we don’t want to hear from these 500 people who have signed affidavits talking about what they saw with this election.”

McDaniel’s comments come after Fox News late Monday swiftly cut away from airing a briefing by the Trump campaign, after McEnany appeared to allege that the Democrat Party had been involved in election fraud. The outlet claimed that McEnany did not have details to back up her allegations.

The Epoch Times isn’t calling the race until the legal battles are resolved, all results are certified, and the Electoral College votes are cast.

It is laughable that we start building  new harmony nature and economy world starting with more mining mineral leading to more pollutions. And innovation & competitions is coming from government subsidies and people would work harder with more welfare.

In the US, youngster should study less liberal arts, political sciences, journalisms etc. and do more STEM if we want to talk about  technology and productivity because:

1 We don't export arts or political sciences or journalisms or politicians , we are exporting technologies. Proof? Look at oversea students, how many percent of them invest money to study the anything else besides STEM and Businesses.

2 Time is a resource itself and life is short. With enough welfare to secure my life and sacrifices my needs, why would I trade time for study or working up my careers or going to work in the first place.

Government is corruptible to secure their power control. Business is corruptible to secure their investments returns.  We the people is corruptible to secure what we have and asking others for more. There is a solution for all of that now?

Because everything above is corruptible, human is corruptible that why we have democracy.

People control government to make them less corruptible. Government control corporations to make them less corruptible. Corporations control people to make people less corruptible and going on. 

In the Utopia above, what keep the crony capitalism and the people less corruptible and work harder? 

It is okay to invest on stocks and vote for the party that supports your investment, but it is lying to ourselves for sugar coating greed with for the "Greater good". What make the ones who have a choice between working and welfare deserve what they have now than the poor people who are working their butt out in developing countries without welfare to begin with if you truly want equality? Socialism will make people stop demanding for more?

Sure sounds like socialism. Suggestion: Read "A Gentleman in Moscow." It isn't exponential but it is enlightening. 😊

It is far more complex than that. All political ideologies are on a convergence path toward the economic singularity.

I suggest you read The Singularity and Socialism: Marx, Mises, Complexity Theory, Techno-Optimism and the Way to the Age of Abundance

The Singularity & Socialism is an exhilarating fast paced read showing the points of similarity and interconnection between Classical Liberal, Marxist, and Libertarian economic ideology and Complexity Theory/Economics and how they may change with coming technological advancements. The book updates the issues and illuminates many of today’s debates allowing the reader to come to a better understanding of the surprising interrelatedness between ideologies and their eventual convergence at the event horizon of the coming Economic Singularity. The process needed for obtaining an almost zero marginal cost system is enumerated within its pages. Whether you are a: Conservative, Progressive, Libertarian, Marxist, Socialist, Transhumanist, Venus Project enthusiast or a Zeitgeist Movement follower you will greatly enjoy this well written book! If there is one book that frames the debate between the Techno-optimists/Singularitans and Sustainatopians today and transcends the argument between them, this is it! The underlying theme that this book takes up is, “what happens to our present ideological ideas about Capitalism, Socialism, Communism, Libertarianism and Conservatism when we reach the event horizon of the coming economic singularity.” When abundance breaks out, how does that change our ideas about all of our political beliefs and economic systems that were founded upon a scarcity of resources and the means to fully, efficiently produce them in a new distributed way. The almost Zero cost society is possible with the evolution of Kevin Kelly’s Technium, with a surprising convergence between the ideas found in classical liberal and traditional Marxian economics, coupled with complexity theory/economics and Techno-optimism. This work transcends the oppositional dialectics and seeks to recognize the possible convergence of all presently combative ideologies at the Omega Point we are accelerating toward.

Okay, I'll read it. 

I actually halfway understand the concept of singularity, though I'm mostly stuck in a Black Hole on it. 

I also halfway understand exponential economics, though I worry more about those millions of men and women who are about to be put out of work because of AI and other technological advances. I don't fear the machines, but the people who are angry at the machines. 

This has all become some sort of halfbreed Orwell/Marx derivative taking a Magic Bus ride with Joe Biden dressed up like Ken Kesey.

The new pollution will be far less than the old pollution that it displaces. We will have a net decrease in pollution.

We export a tremendous amount of art, the movie and music industry for example.

Corruption is indeed a problem in every facet of humanity, the goal is to minimize. A lot of people enjoy what they do and work hard because they want to. Others won't need to work much at all to have a nice basic lifestyle. How exactly we will balance that will depend greatly on how exactly the economic singularity unfolds. We don't have all the answers but we do know that almost all cost curves are decreasing and converging toward an asymptote.

Satiation of demand is more achievable than most think. The younger generation of today is already showing a significant decrease in demand for things and more demand for experiences. Much of this can be attributed to the convergence of low cost technology. Consider how many devices a smartphone replaces and how much space it saves (you no longer need a whole house to store your stuff, it all fits in your pocket) while providing far more capability at lower cost than all those discreet devices that we used to want to own. Some want the $1,000 phone as status symbol but a lot of people are starting to look at that as silly and pretentious as a $300 phone every three years is perfectly fine. When most people aren't impressed with another's $1000 phone the market for them as status symbols will disappear. After phones will be brain implants and with that we will head rapidly toward the asymptote.

BWAHAHA!!! The most that order allows Trump to do is freeze some accounts and block some travel. Why would anyone, let alone the Chinese be concerned? You should be careful about reading those right wing blogs. they will rot your brain, though in your case I think the damage is done. On January 21st, with a single signature, all four years of Trump's executive chess moves will be flushed down the toilet of history.

Your infantile language notwithstanding (since corrected, congrats on growing up) the thing the CCP fears most is having their accounts frozen. They've been pilfering billions from China, but they can't leave it there because they'd be certain to get caught. Because of how SWIFT works worldwide, freezing here causes freezing elsewhere. Given that this is all Mafia tactics, their worst fear is always where's the cheddar.

Who allocates necessities in a post scarcity world Jay??   Your support of the the socialist side of the political spectrum leads me to understand that YOU expect to avoid the scarcity.  Rather than fight for freedom and justice you side with those who usurp the power and decision making thus in your mind somehow making you immune from the economic ravages of a post scarcity world.  You will not be immune Jay.  You will suffer right along with the rest of us.  Your kids, grand kids and the rest of the world thank you.

Does that include the rioters and looters, err I mean "mostly peaceful protesters" and those out now celebrating the Biden victory in highly populous blue cities? Oh but wait, the virus is selective and knows the political reasons why the crowd is there. So no one shows up for a Biden rally because "Covid dangerous" but thousands show to gloat in victory and Covid no longer dangerous? Meanwhile a Trump rally with tens of thousands showing up is a "super spreader event"? Do you honestly believe everyone reading your words is as vapid as you appear to be? Asking for a friend

Housing is the toughest nut to crack but we are working on it. As to other aspects of life, real costs have gone down through technology and those costs continue to fall. Disruption only occurs through lower cost and higher productivity. The inequality is caused on the other side of the ledger due to slow income and institutional adjustments to the new cost structures. It is a serious problem that will be solved as we proceed along the curve. Capitalism as we know it is not a permanent condition of technological advancement and does not survive in a post scarcity world. Popping the bubble will be the ultimate disruption and will be necessary to give birth to the next economic era.

The main cost of employment to the employee is the location of the employer. Which dictates the employee's commuting costs and real estate costs. and tax costs and local cost of living index.

In extreme cases of NYC and SF metros but to a large extent in LA Seattle Boston Philly Chicago, The housing + tax burden are 60% of income for about 30% of people and 50% for 30% Median at about <50%. It is one of the most significant causes of income inequality as it distributes cash flows to the wealthy landlords.

Dissolving the physical office into a network of distributed spaces and work from anywhere employees allows employees to save $2-6k on annual commuting and to live far better in a home they own paying a mortgage. That results in 36% of income for housing + local tax for a total of 20% savings of income that can be spent on other things/services. That is a huge impact on people, letting them increase disposable income post housing and commuting by 40%.

This will translate into great growth where people can make use of it, like US CA Aus. Perhaps people would finally move into empty ghost cities in China. Tier 2 city vacancy is >30%. So far they are not. But Americans are definitely accelerating their move into exurbia.

DiBlazio complained loudly that NYC lost half of the 65k families that pay nearly all NYC taxes. Saying NYC is nos structurally a different place.

There is no need for a "reset" and free markets work for both scarcity and abundance. Policy driven markets don't work in either situation.

NYC rents are down 16%. unemployment is around 10%, broad unemployment measures are at 12-15% for the big urban centers outside TX and FL

Exurbia is growing, housing is booming, unemployment is <6%

Of course that means rioters and looters. Yes COVID is dangerous. It also shows your intended ignorance of the words, “stay home”. If you have to leave the house, “wear a mask”. Stay 6’ away from others.

If you see anybody not doing those anti super spreader common sense actions get on your knees and beg for a chance of life so many didn’t get.

You don't understand the concept of post scarcity.  With no scarcity, everyone is provided for.

With unlimited production everything becomes monetarily worthless due to oversupply.  With unlimited clean energy (e.g. cold fusion), automation, and AI it is theoretically possible.

Some think that current scarcity levels are on purpose as a means of control.  If you weren't broke you wouldn't go to a job you hate only to make enough money for food and shelter so you can go back to work the next day...

Gee, why didn't you say you have a cornucopia machine

I've been involved with singularity discussions since Vernor Vinge a personal friend coined the term. I've got emails going back decades with Vernor and Charles Stross. Odd that, given my computer scientist background. 😏

@Tom Nolan posted several videos and links about your New World Order Fantasy. You're in big time company, all those Davos billionaires are pushing this like it's the new fountain of youth. Only someone with critical thinking skills would ask themselves why? By the NWO agenda, those folks are the first to go. Or are they? Will they just be like Bill Gates and Warren Buffet and protect their massive hoards of wealth inside phony foundations that promise to solve all the world's problems by taxing the rest of the world into penury while they get to keep their private jets and multiple castles?

They'll lecture us about wanting a better life for ourselves and our children while they scoop up all the valuables for their "museums". Communism is a boon for those at the top. We should ask @SUZNVhow those peasants who suffered and died to create their utopian society feel about doing all that to work for $3/day in Vietnamese sweatshops. The CCP sells their vast labor pool as if those humans are their personal slaves. But why not? They are.

The skill set of AI and humans does not overlap and that can lead to underestimating the power of AI.

Current AI programs do some tasks very well and others, as you pointed out, exceptionally poorly.  Machine learning through finding strange correlations in enormous data sets, and trial and error learning via practice has overcome human abilities already. 

Chess, Go, Jeopardy, etc. are all won by computers now. The Go champions were most impressed because the computer used a shockingly new technique.

 

New AI algorithms that employ more creative "top down" approaches are gaining power.
