Sidney Powell told the ‘Faith and Freedoms Conference’ tonight that when fraud is shown, Trump will be “reinstated” as president, with a “new inauguration.” Biden will have to “move out of the WH,” but Trump “won’t get credit for the time he has lost.” pic.twitter.com/jbydEJtObk— Ron Filipkowski (@RonFilipkowski) May 30, 2021
Powell: "More evidence" will be available "in a month or two." I've heard that shit before, Sid.— The Q Origins Project (@QOrigins) May 29, 2021
Powell: "We had enough evidence... there's enough evidence." Not what any of the 60+ judges said, but sure, you lying fascist fuckhead, you had the evidence
holy fuck I hate her.
Sidney Powell ends her final question by claiming that she "has a team of 7 lawyers working obscene hours" on lawsuits over the, once again, ALREADY-DECIDED 2020 election, "at greatly reduced pay."— The Q Origins Project (@QOrigins) May 29, 2021
Bully for them, I hope they can't even pay their mortgages because of it.
Meanwhile, The Daily Beast's podcast asks: "Will Biden Ever Get Off His Ass to Save Democracy?"

I went out and talked to the heads of a lot of the civil rights and voting rights groups that are working on these issues. And they are worried on two fronts. They're worried about the magnitude of what's unfolding in the red states. And they are worried about the way that the Biden White House and the Senate Democratic leadership are responding to it. That there is a gap that is widening between the magnitude of the threat and the intensity of the response. . . .There are provisions in many of these laws that are increasing the authority of statewide officials—Republicans—to override decisions by local officials, primarily Democrats, about access to the ballot, or even potentially counting of the ballots. There are bills in these states that would restrict the ability of state courts even to oversee and intervene. . . .[But Biden's team] don't really see it that way. They argue—and this is an exact quote from a very senior official—that the best chance to prevent Republicans from undermining the 2024 election is to hold the House and the Senate. . . . And it's more important to do that than to call out what's happening in stark terms.
Of course, by 2024, the deck could be legally stacked against the Democrats in so many states that holding the House and the Senate could be an impossible task. But we'll worry about tomorrow tomorrow, right?
While Biden ignores those real and present dangers, he is also covering up many of Trump's crimes, including his child separation policy and a Justice Department memo supporting the claim that the Mueller Report did not support a charge of presidential obstruction.
Biden is also urging a federal judge to dismiss civil lawsuits against Trump and other officials for last June's attacks by the US military on 1,000+ peaceful protestors in Lafayette Square because Trump lost re-election, so future violations are very unlikely. Seriously -- that's one of the reasons. Because we all know that Trump has zero supporters in government who might consider running for high office and win and then mimic his actions (or worse).
