Via B.C. "It turns out that this was merely a tactical/strategic move by the power players. It frees up Sidney to go Kraken on the Communists, without having to be bogged down by vetting crap through campaign staffers and bring tied to the Trump team's legal funds. I'm telling you, Sidney and Lin DO NOT say stuff in public that they can't back-up 100-f*cking-percent in a courtroom."

The following is adapted from a lecture delivered on June 18, 2020, for a Hillsdale College online symposium, “The Coronavirus and Public Policy.”
Over the last four months, Americans have lived through what is arguably the most consequential period of government malfeasance in U.S. history. Public officials’ overreaction to the novel coronavirus put American cities into a coma; those same officials’ passivity in the face of widespread rioting threatens to deliver the coup de grâce. Together, these back-to-back governmental failures will transform the American polity and cripple urban life for decades.
Before store windows started shattering in the name of racial justice, urban existence was already on life support, thanks to the coronavirus lockdowns. Small businesses—the restaurants and shops that are the lifeblood of cities—were shuttered, many for good, leaving desolate rows of “For Rent” signs on street after street in New York City and elsewhere. Americans huddled in their homes for months on end, believing that if they went outside, death awaited them.

Lincoln launched his war in 1861 with the stated goal of maintaining the Union, and by use of force, to refuse recognition of those States choosing to form a more perfect Union of their own. After Lincoln had become disenchanted with several ineffectual commanders, he settled upon U.S. Grant who achieved some measure of success with relentless mass attacks upon numerically inferior numbers, the latter to be worn down by simple attrition.
Grant’s wife, Julia Dent, inherited thirty slaves and her father’s plantation, White Haven, making Grant the proprietor of a large slaveholding estate. Grant was indifferent to slavery and no abolitionist, writing his father that “I am sure that I have but one desire in this war and that is to put down the rebellion. I have no hobby of my own with regard to the negro, either to effect his freedom or to continue his bondage.”
Appreciating a fellow autocrat who was consolidating scattered republics into a centralized empire, Bismarck supported Lincoln’s war and encouraged Germans to purchase Union war bonds – and by 1864, German immigrants made up fully one-quarter of Lincoln’s army.

Vakandi was founded by a husband-wife team of chiropractors. Their original design was created for the wife half of the team — she’s an avid yoga practitioner and constant concealed firearm carrier.
Vakandi Apparel, a small but increasingly popular company specializing in concealed carry clothing for women, has added a couple of new color-ways to their lineup. Vakandi’s tactical leggings (or “tactical yoga pants” as some refer to them) are now available in both grey and red. Women’s tactical pants of this kind are becoming increasingly ubiquitous, on the range, in competition, and of course, in everyday concealed carry use.👾
As you can see, they allow for more than a little mobility.

It is not the people who vote that count; it is the people who count the votes.”
–attributed to Joseph Stalin.
Dr. Shiva Ayyadurai, PhD MIT World-renowned systems engineer, confirms massive 2020 vote fraud.
This may be a paraphrase from The Memoirs of Stalin’s former Secretary by Boris Bazhanov published in 2002. It actually referred to a vote of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union in 1923, of which Stalin said,
“Í consider it completely unimportant who in the party will vote, or how, but what is extraordinarily important is this: who will count the votes and how.”
The idea of dishonest vote counting to win elections did not originate with the Soviet Union or Joseph Stalin, although voter fraud, dishonest vote counts, and the dark shadow of voter intimidation are consistent characteristics of Marxist philosophy and practice.
The people who vote do count, and it is important that they be fairly, truthfully, and well informed in casting their vote. But the second part of Stalin’s alleged quote is true.

These local militia units proved a valuable addition to the Confederate forces defending Arizona, but Governor Baylor recognized the need to raise yet more troops for its defense. Taking a page from the history of his native State, Baylor decided to raise a regiment of Rangers for frontier defense. Like the famous Texas Rangers with which he was familiar, this regiment of Arizona Rangers would consist of several companies of cavalry which would patrol and defend the frontier areas of Confederate Arizona from the various threats the Territory faced. The plan never came to fruition, however, and only one of these companies was ever raised. This was, of course, Company A.2

This is why you don’t swallow conspiracy theories whole-cloth without waiting for evidence to be presented. Amazingly, it appears that Trump’s own campaign is now disowning Sidney Powell’s fairly out there claims about German servers and millions of switched votes. And I don’t say that as someone who wouldn’t want to believe it if there was proof, but there was obviously no proof and plenty to the contrary.

Sidney Powell: We Now Have Evidence They Gave 35,000 Extra Votes To Every Democrat Candidate Right Off The Bat & Major Fraud Case Hasn’t Been Presented Yet, Criminal Conspiracy!"
"Dominion added 35,000 votes to every Democrat in GA". Here's the rub, if that happened we would have WON both seats, there wouldn't be a run off! These people are CRAZY.
Well, this would certainly shift things, don’t you think?
Up-ballot, down-ballot. All around!
Check this out, it’s stunning:

It became apparent on Friday night that some business owners in Buffalo, New York, have had enough of the arbitrary coronavirus-related restrictions handed down by Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo that are killing their establishments and hurting their employees.
Gathered inside Athletes Unleashed gym in Orchard Park, a number of business owners refused to comply when a health department official and the Erie County Sheriff’s Department entered their facility. The business owners, who taped the interaction, told the health dept. official and the sheriffs to “go get a warrant” and leave their “private property.”

House Republican Conference Chair Rep. Liz Cheney (WY) on Saturday called on President Donald Trump to either produce evidence of election fraud or accept the results of the election, meaning Joe Biden would be the next president.
“America is governed by the rule of law. The President and his lawyers have made claims of
criminality and widespread fraud, which they allege could impact election results. If they have genuine evidence of this, they are obligated to present it immediately in court and to the American people,” Cheney said in a statement.
