A pretty light load this rainy Sunday morning. Sundance at CTH notices that the Media Starting to Admit Federal Prosecutors Have Scant Evidence Against January 6th DC Protestors as Judges Start Asking Questions
The 2021 political prosecutions against the Oath Keepers and the Proud Boys are essentially akin to former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s 2018 indictments -on behalf of Mueller/Weissmann- for mysterious Russian operatives that never surfaced and were never prosecuted.
As a result, the conspiracy to engage in sedition is to 2021 as the conspiracy to interfere in the Clinton v Trump election was to 2016 (via Facebook memes).
The Associated Press now recognizes something is sketchy about the DOJ shift. Somebody might possibly do something, at some place, in relation to something discussed with someone about some time; thus people were arrested for thought crimes. However, the DOJ cannot show who the somebodies, something or sometime were all about.
BOSTON (AP) — There’s little doubt the Oath Keepers were planning for something on Jan. 6. The question at the heart of the criminal case against its members and associates in the attack on the U.S. Capitol is: What, exactly, did they intend to do?
Authorities suggested for weeks in court hearings and papers that members of the far-right militia group plotted their attack in advance in an effort to block the peaceful transition of power. But prosecutors have since said it is not clear whether the group was targeting the Capitol before Jan. 6.
“The plan was to unlawfully stop the certification of the Electoral College vote … and the plan was to be prepared to use violence if necessary,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Kathryn Rakoczy said during a hearing this month. But the Oath Keepers “did not know precisely the way in which force and violence might be needed to support this plan,” she said. (read more)
Overcharging and then offering plea bargains is the way of life in the US judicial system, unfortunately, prosecutors have neither the time or money necessary to pursue most charges into the courtroom. It's likely that is what they are angling for here as well.
Tyler O'Neil at PJ Media, Biden Goes Berserk on Georgia Election Law
President Joe Biden railed against Georgia’s new voter integrity law on Friday, slamming the law as “un-American,” “a blatant attack on the Constitution and good conscience,” and “Jim Crow in the 21st Century.” Biden repeated false claims about Georgia’s elections system and mischaracterized key parts of the bill.Kamala is going to need Georgia in 2024.

“We focused on two things in the second movie, the history of Dominion and corruption and how they flipped Venezuela to Communism in two years; look at where we are two months after the election, and we have validated the ID of the computer and IP addresses both here and in China. You have to see this one guy who showed me data on each country, starting in Pennsylvania, where he was hired to look at a race there. When he dug into that by looking at the voting reporting, he remembered seeing some familiar from the 2010 census, and he compared information by counties. Showing the same patterns, he showed that with Math, Trump won by 16%,” Lindell told Bannon.
Bannon asked him about the “big reveal” from the first movie and asked Lindell if the second movie had new experts and showed new proof. “These are acts of cyber proof; we need lots of proof,” Bannon said.
“Yes, new people. Technical experts had to go and validate IP addresses. We have two whistleblowers in disguise. I will tell you one was with the Senate runoff in GA. In that case, we had a guy with burner phones with hotspots. A citizen got a device to find an IP address, and he went into the election area with his devices and found the IP address. We know who did it, the conversations that they had, we have everything. We proved there was an attack on our country. 100% absolute proof, and it matches up with other patterns and algorithms in different states, We are dropping a one-hour version of this information on Wend or Thursday, and it fits like a glove with foreign interference,” Lindell told Bannon.
Lindell is still convinced the election can be flipped. I don't believe it.
