BLUF (bottom Line Up Front): Get confident... we're at the beginning of a long road
This is not a happy one. Don't get me wrong we are still winning in our strategy and have won the 2020 election.
The information coming out of various states and outlets is gushing now and much mythology is likely to grow along with it. Sydney Powell has a fight for the history books here and it was time to draw attention to a lesser known aspect of the pushback epitomized by Tucker Carlson's spat with Powell. We begin by examining the Republican relationship to its base but then go into a deeper look at what is really forcing the divide between the 'deplorables' and their kin in officialdom. Something much deeper in all of this is in play.
Toward a National Gut Check
In an interview on Newsmax TV yesterday evening, Sydney Powell laid out a number of points. Answering the obligatory questions about the overall status of the vote recount efforts nationally as well as the Tucker Carlson hissy-fit, Powell proceeded to do a deeper dive into her end of the investigation. This was the first time she explained that a number of Republicans are going to take a hit in getting to the bottom of the numbers game. While it has made the news via the campaign's legal team that California and New Mexico are on the table, she is now in company with Lin Wood having spent the last two days sending warnings to the leadership of the State of Georgia. The chaotic nature of the Georgia recount makes it difficult to discern the effectiveness with respect to the governor's attention.
This speaks to a deep issue, here written earlier, where Georgia would be a proving ground for how the MAGA movement handles the perfidy within their own ostensible house. At the same time the vote recount in PA would be a standard bearer for more ostensibly hostile voting territory. The fact is that both states are friendly to the deplorables and time and evidence will assuredly reveal this. But the question persists on the numbers in other states where governors are republicans. Are they being given a chance to clean up their own houses at this point? Florida comes immediately to mind.
Controlled opposition is a real phenomena. Having grown up in Republican politics in the State of Maryland, does not make me an expert but it entitles me to an opinion. I have seen it repeatedly to varying degrees in PA, VA, and CA (some of these states are better than others). Right now there are interests in the Republican party who are allowing indications to fester that they don't have the stomach for the long haul. These would be those such as Liz Chenney. The media would like to have the deplorables believe that she sees the need to put up evidence that she is smart enough to realize is not fully collated for court as yet, or accept the imperatives of life and go back to our tribal ways and believe the lie of marginal efficacy.
To buy that would assume that we have exhausted the full scope of options and time available to ensure the will of the people is reflected. But there this goes directly to the 'something deeper here' that statements attributed to Cheney, Senator Toomey and Senator Romney are reminiscent of the tea party history with Republican politics.
Antecedent of two Republican Parties:
When the Tea Party as a self organizing phenomena, catapulted members of congress to power, the Republican leadership on Capitol Hill dined out lavishly on the mandate. Unlike the contra example of AOC in contemporary times, tea party congressional types acquiesced in the placement of John Boenher and Paul Ryan into leadership. They had smarts and corporate Brooks Brothers charm.
Over time, the swamp lulled the insurgent rascals into a place where they could be taken for granted. These restive forerunners of the deplorables created some headaches but over time were to have placation at veteran's barbeques, rubber chicken appreciation dinners and one or two sound bites in a congressional district debate. Once the steam had been vented and the "don't tread on me" shirts were back in the dresser for the work flannel to get on with the trench work of the republic. problem solved, the seers of social and budgetary suicide were confident the movement was down for a nappy time that would permit the public policy adults to reign.
The patient good nature of the Tea Party movement was fitfully alive in 2012. The happy warfare had given way to practical necessity as they weirily welcomed their alternative to Barack Obama. The miscalculation of the party was that the resentments of the Tea Party toward Obama along with its innate energy would translate into a sure win for team Romney and the Republicans. The logic of their entitlement to liberty movement good graces in the face of swamp based fratricide at the hands of Boehner and Ryan was baffling but understandable in view of the authoritative Obama.
Fellow travelers who had put the movement aside were then bewildered at the resultant lack of enthusiasm for the third Bush administration lesser evil. In my post-2012 analysis of Florida commissioned by my employer I came to the conclusion that had two things been seriously addressed they might have won in spite of their shabby regard for the tea party/9-12 movement.
- Romney's team ran an appalling ground game in view of the enthusiasm gap. By contrast in 2016, Trump had an under resourced ground game but an enthusiasm advantage that made up for it multifold.
- Voter turnout in 2012 among newly arrived Venezuelans and Haitians in Broward, Miami-Dade were very well organized and the early voting numbers reflected that. there was no viable offset to this effort by the RNC and team Romney.
The stand out piece was that there was high game day turnout from Miami-Dade up the Atlantic coast to Saint Lucie county. Saint Lucie County itself had nearly 120% voter participation for the election as a whole. Likewise Pinellas county on the west end of the vaunted I-4 corridor went purple to blue.
Does this sound familiar?
Turn back to what General McInerny said about the use of Hammer in 2012. It was in Florida, a 'must win" for both sides. I was there, I am very willing to buy it after my pathology. As for Powell, she had stated that the software rip off was used against Bernie in 2016 and 2020. Does it also account for the massive flip in the House of Representatives in 2018? Here again he possibilities go on and on. From the instrument's inception circa 2003-2004 a reverse engineering of it and the subsequent elections must be done.
The Enemy Within:
We have to be ready to face up to the idea that we are going to find that a few Republicans trafficked with the Dominion-Scorecard-Hammer operation wittingly and mostly unwittingly. That they benefited by it and consented to its use for the purposes of restraining political segments they are ostensibly allied with. The guises that it would operate under are certainly the same as we are seeing today in Philadelphia (and suburbs), Wayne County MI, and Milwaukee. Mrs. Powell is making preparations for such disclosures.
Hammer is a collection of capabilities and technical/diplomatic/corporate relationships. As McInerny outlined in a segment on OAN. Scorecard in the service of Hammer is but one exploit (the intelligence term for an app.). The system was designed to get information on just about anything you could want to know about any person. Much of the answer likely lies on the other side of the ledger. That in its original designed purpose being turned back on the population it was meant to defend, it gathered information on vulnerabilities and frailties that could ruin people. Worse, if it has an exploit to change votes it certainly had them to implant incriminating information, whether that information is true or not.
The possibilities are frightening how both Democrats and Republicans could have gotten hooked by it. Whether they used it or got used by it, the effect will have been all the same.
- What might the tie-ins be to big tech? Are there backdoors to Google, Apple, Linkedin and 23 and Me? it has been established the Dominion had them.
- Is it used to plant fatuous (or even legitimate) evidence when somebody will not play along? Is this why the US Government is so loath to get too deep into Jeffrey Epstein's "intelligence" connection that got him leniency on his conviction in Palm Beach?
- When Edward Snowden "defected" to compromise NSA's StellarWind and Prism, was he put up to it by somebody to shut NSA down while Hammer was running? Funny how he bolted the country giving away the store primarily to two known deep states news outlets. The defection took place around the same time the secret negotiations over the Iran deal would have been opening in Muscat and Doha. Having NSA tied down in Inspector General investigations while it's systems continued to collect for an off the books CIA platform with access, would disallow law enforcement from catching on. Section 702 surveillance requires the NSA to provide the systems needed. Very handy when exchanging billions of ill-gotten monies including kickbacks and money laundering. What might have been happening in Ukraine at the time?
- When Powell speaks of the Dominion play being used in the past to edge out Bernie Sanders vs. Hillary Clinton, does this help account for the personal outrage and subsequent murder of former DNC staffer Seth Rich?
- Does this cast the extradition of Julian Assange in a new light?
Money and morality know no party exclusively. Human failing is mercilessly exploited by those driven by 'the will to power'. For people in America to be open to having lived a big brother life ripped from Orwell's 1984, it must begin by examining the ballot box. The immediate crime is exposed for all of the population to see. Once the evidence is assembled and exposed alongside the means of the crime and the perpetrators there are inevitable questions. Where else was it used? What else was it used for?
Brothers and Sisters commit to prayer words of thanks for an Esther like person in Sydney Powell. Repent for our sin as a nation. Pray strength that our fellow citizens will stick out to fully excise this cancer. And know that this intelligence program is why they went after Mike Flynn. With that, it is clear why Sydney is uniquely suited to this challenge.
