STATEMENT FROM SIDNEY POWELL TO “WE THE PEOPLE”
General Flynn Parler @GenFlynn ^ | 11/23/2020 | Sidney Powell
Posted on 11/23/2020, 5:43:19 AM by \/\/ayneI 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.

I don’t like all these Q-esque proclamations from her:”It will be Biblical!”
“I will release the Kraken!”
“It will be epic!”
When she wins a court case, then people can be motivated.
Right now, we are all just praying – and that’s more important than hyperbole.
I tend to agree. I don’t see the point in saying all of these things…..it sets the bar very high indeed. Just tell people you’re in the battle and do what you need to do. If it’s epic, Biblical, or Krakenlike, there will be no need to say anything.
Sidney’s squad says :
No, I’m good with it.
With all the Debbie Downers on the board and all of the fake news out there, e.g. “baseless” claims, it is necessary.
Let her file her “epic” lawsuit. We’ll read it and determine if it is so.
But we need to support her, both publically and financially. She already has enough enemies.
Yeah yeah yeah, vaccines, world peace, whatever. WE’RE GETTING A FIRST CAT, AMERICA. First it was announced that Champ and Major, the German shepherds belonging to the president-elect and future first lady Jill Biden, would roam the White House. And now, after an absence of more than a decade, a cat is set to also join the ranks of presidential pets, Jane Pauley of “CBS Sunday Morning” reported on Twitter on Friday. In an interview with Fox 5 in Washington, D.C., Dr. Biden hinted that if her husband won the presidency, she would not mind getting a cat. “I’d love to get … Continue reading Not Everything Sucks & Sunday Catblogging: CATS ARE BACK
Today is our last day under quarantine. I’m relieved that neither of us were ever symptomatic. We were damn lucky.
This week’s theme song was written by the great Motown songwriting team of Holland-Dozier-Holland in 1964. It was originally intended for the Supremes but wound up being recorded by Marvin Gaye. Its real title is Baby Don’t You Do It but I prefer The Band’s re-titling, Don’t Do It. Either way it’s a great song that’s been recorded oodles of times or is that scads? Beats the hell outta me.
We have five versions of Don’t Do It aka Baby Don’t You Do It for your listening pleasure.
The IT in question is “don’t you break my heart.” Here’s a Stones song that says doo doo doo doo instead of don’t:
Now that we’re all heartbroken and shit, let’s jump to the break.

Michael Flynn avoids having to add jailbird to his CV, joining Corn and Cob (Corn, Cob…and Jive? — yeah, groan…or pardon me…ok, ok) on the clemency list. DJT’s small hands should get some work over the next 8 weeks as he scribbles his name to official pardons and tries to lift anything that isn’t bolted to the floor. If nothing else, Trump is consistent. Anyway, have a happy Thanksgiving. Pandemic or not, it’ll be the best Thanksgiving Day I’ve had in…four years, at least.

Florida Sen. Rick Scott has tested positive for COVID-19, he said Friday, as he advised Americans to “wear a mask.”
The GOP lawmaker said he was diagnosed with the bug Friday morning after several negative tests.
“I’m feeling good & experiencing very mild symptoms,” he tweeted. “I’ll be working from home until it’s safe for me to return to DC. I remind everyone to be careful & do the right things to protect yourselves & others.”

Posted on 11/18/2020, 3:35:29 PM by ChicagoConservative27Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) said Wednesday he is “symptom-free” and feeling “good” after he announced that he had tested positive for the coronavirus on Tuesday.
“I remain symptom free & in isolation. I continue to feel good Thx for all the messages of encouragement & prayers,” 87-year-old Grassley wrote in a tweet.
BREAKING NEWS: Don Jr tests positive for coronavirus and is in quarantine: Trump’s son becomes latest in the president’s inner circle to get infected Daily Mail ^ | Nov 20 2020 | Emily Goodin Posted on 11/20/2020, 5:26:10 PM by Alter Kaker
Donald Trump Jr. has tested positive for the coronavirus and is quarantining at his cabin.
Update: YOU DID IT YOU MAGNIFICENT BASTARDS!
Yesterday I had the rockin’ job of calling up the directors of the St. Hyacinth Food Pantry (who happen to be my aunt and uncle) and telling them I was sending them a check for $1,500 so that every single family that gets a Christmas food basket from them this year will also get a gift card to buy presents for their kids.
In a normal year the pantry would run a MASSIVE toy drive and distribute everything from stuffed animals to bikes, but it involves multiple volunteers, hours of going in and out of places to collect donations and drop them off, and families lined up to choose things at a time when the virus is out of control in their neighborhood. Everyone’s been really understanding about it, but it’s hard on the little kids to have nothing to put under the tree.
You’ve made it so that they can. You’ve given hundreds of families a terrific holiday season. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Tragic Prelude by John Steuart Curry.
It’s been a difficult week in New Orleans. Dr. A tested positive for COVID and we’re under quarantine. Mercifully, we’re both asymptomatic.
This is an excellent example of how contagious COVID-19 is. As a scientist, Dr. A is careful and cautious in dealing with the virus. She caught it at work, not socializing. If you’re thinking of having a normal Thanksgiving, please reconsider. Anyone can catch this virus if they let their guard down. Help is on the way but it’s going to take time to vaccinate the entire population. Please be careful out there.
This week’s theme song was written by Bob Dylan and Rick Danko in 1967. It was first recorded by The Band on their debut album, Music From Big PInk. It’s been covered by a wide variety of artists over the years and was the theme song of the OTT British sitcom Absolutely Fabulous.
We have four versions of This Wheel’s On Fire for your listening pleasure: The Band live, The Byrds, Julie Driscoll, and Guster.
I have a confession to make. I’m a hardcore fan of The Band but I’m not crazy about Big Pink. It’s a brilliant collection of songs but they don’t swing like the Band did live. Hence the live burning wheel. I hope this won’t consign me to rock hell as the CW on Big Pink is that it’s one of the greatest albums of all-time. I like it but don’t love it.
Another song from The Band with Rick Danko on lead vocals:
Now that we’ve walked that highway til we die, let’s jump to the break.
This week’s entry was inspired by the swell David Kelly-Nicole Kidman-Hugh Grant mini-series, The Undoing. Kelly and the show’s musical directors encouraged La Kidman to record a version of Dream A Little Dream Of Me for the show’s theme song. … Continue reading Dream A Little Dream Of Me

I made some modest improvements to DJT as GOP-Vitruvian-Man (note the hands are sized more appropriately). Because he really has become their standard. Their trademark. Their brand. And if you wonder how a gelatinous, sagging blob like that could become the living symbol of a major political party… It’s been a generation since Ronaldus Magnus, as Rosalynn Carter said, “made us comfortable with our prejudices,” but just as important, he made the media comfortable with style over substance. His rhetoric, which regularly included snide and condescending insults, bore little resemblance to reality, but hey, he was Teflon Ron. The Great … Continue reading Their Hero

Sophia Loren exists, and bone structure is a real thing: There is nothing that you can say. If you decide that you have to be an actress, because it’s something that you love, then you have to do what your mind teaches you, to put yourself in a situation where you only think about your life as an actress. Then you’ll see if you do or don’t get married. Life is not just one thing; it’s so many things, and sometimes so many things all together. There’s a photograph of her in the linked story above in a gold ball … Continue reading Not Everything Sucks: Goddess Edition
Fuck these people, don’t book them at your speaking agency: Normally, when one administration passes the torch to another, there’s a stampede toward policy think tanks, law schools, various institutes and ideas festivals. But in this case? They should be shut out of the post-administration economy. Don’t offer them speaking gigs. No keynote addresses. No corporate conferences sponsored by national brands. No media “commentator” positions. Not for any of them. It’s time to stop the redemption train once and for all and leave it to rust on the tracks.
