This is definitely a victory. I'm not sure where it leads. Perhaps they can compare settings in different counties, not sure:
Emergency Order just entered by Judge Timothy C. Batten, Sr.:— Lin Wood (@LLinWood) November 29, 2020
“Defendants are ordered to maintain the statue quo & are temporarily enjoined from wiping or resetting any voting machines in the State of Georgia until further order of the Court.”
Stop the steal NOW @BrianKempGA.
At a minimum it shows there's at least one federal judge who was impressed enough with the Powell complaint to take significant action. Here's a link for Judge Timothy C. Batten, Sr.
UPDATE 1: The freeze is off. Judge says, hey, wait, the machines are controlled by the counties, not the defendants, so I can't order the defendants to control the machines. I guess that makes sense. You can read more here. In any event, he was seemingly impressed with the complaint.
UPDATE 2: Third order, Dominion machines are "frozen" in Cobb, Gwinnett, and Cherokee counties, GA.
"...enjoined from wiping or resetting any voting machines in the State of Georgia...."ReplyDelete
And precisely who is going to mount guard 24/7 to assure this injunction?
Sadly- he immediately reversed the order on the machine wiping. This is crazy 3rd world stuffReplyDelete
Mark is going to need a special update button. The freeze is back on. Only in 3 counties (not sure whether the original freeze was statewide or also limited). This is a link to the third order: https://t.co/mV6SGVLsv9?amp=1 Andy S.Delete
The voting machines are under the control of the respective counties. The judge, in reversing his initial statewide freeze, asked the plaintiffs (that’s us) to name the appropriate officialsin the respective counties. It appears that they came up with a few, not all, in short order and he was able to reinstitute the freeze in those counties.Delete
I’m not a lawyer, but this is what I concluded.
Sale judge reversed within an hour:ReplyDelete
Judge reversed TRO part within an hour later. Good Sheryl Attkisson article explains: https://sharylattkisson.com/2020/11/read-federal-judge-orders-georgia-voting-machines-be-preserved-then-reverses-hearing-set-for-friday/ReplyDelete
Can someone enlighten me as to why the Georgia legislature has not established sensible controls now on runoff election to stop this fraud? I understood legislatures control elections -are they really going to let this processReplyDelete
repeat itself. If the Georgia SOS and Governor have something to hide on Dominion contracts (and the Dems know it) they will be along for the ride.
Because their Republicans, and the only people that hate Trump more than democrats is the republican establishment.Delete
I do understand the irony of my statement but I'm basing it on the past 4 years and the actions of the party establishment as a whole, DC and otherwise.
Its like asking why the Pennsylvania legislature just went into recess untill January with no plan or previsions to reopen with the current crisis.
Oh gee... Sorry were not here to answer the phone right not but if you leave us a message we'll call you back after someone else sorts this out.
People are slowly waking up to the fix, they finally got Fox News nailed down. Hopefully our next stop will be a newly created Liberty or Freedom Party.
...one may dream!
What difference does a new party make if the voting process is fixed?Delete
SP and Wood need to get the people of Ga. to make clear to their legislators that they need to fix the problem or they will be gone. Nothing else matters to these people-probably Kemp has a good number of them in his pocket. Also, this world class attorney can’t identify the right party to enjoin? Not a good day for the good guys.
"I do understand the irony of my statement but I'm basing it on the past 4 years and the actions of the party establishment as a whole, DC and otherwise."
I don't think there's any irony to it. I think this shell game has been being run since at least Ronald Reagans last term. Remember amnesty. Some say Reagan was tricked into it. If so it was by "leaders" of his own party.
The D's get to play the alpha party, 2 steps forward, one step back, the R's get to wear crinoline and take two steps backwards, one step forward. To steal a line from Ginger Rogers, "They do everything the D's do, but backwards and in heels.
Is it beyond the pale to think a deal wasn't cut wherein the D's would, "rid the R's of this troublesome populist," and the R's could pickup a few House seats to show the Rubes that their still "contenders". Not enough to take the House, heavens-to-betsy they should actually be put in a position to actually be considered responsible for governing. Just enough so the Chumps don't wise up and the donations dry up. Don't want the marks to figure out they've been shooting with loaded dice all these decades and rearrange more than the deck chairs in search of an honest game.
Not to put too fine a point on it, who has been conspicuous by their absence from this contest?Delete
What different does it make?
From my point of view conservatives deserve a party that is actually conservative. Not a party that talks conservative in front of a camera or microphone while enabling the polar opposite to happen otherwise. The country itself deserves far better than a uniparty.
If you enjoy talking to each about your conservative values while the other side runs the country for the next 50 years please enjoy your values. While I share them, they lead nowhere without the ability to Implement them. You conveniently left out of your comment”if the voting process is fixed”.Delete
So, he can't order the counties to control the machines?ReplyDelete
Because Wood didn't know GA election law well enough, to seek the action against the counties?
If he can't issue a injunction for a non party I say welcome counties of Georgia to enjoinment!!!ReplyDelete
No one wants to do their actual jobs any longer. It would have been simple for the judge to issue an restraining order against the counties, especially given the machines are owned by the state of Georgia whose direct official in charge of elections are the defendants.ReplyDelete
Now, I have long believed the electronic component isn't relevant to the cheating- the cheating was straight up ballot stuffing, but this judge probably got a call from someone who laid the law down to him- let the machines get wiped or else.
No one wants to see this election investigated, at least no one with the power to do so.
The Judge did what you said, apparently, 10Delete
pm Sunday evening:
Defendants are hereby ENJOINED and RESTRAINED from
altering, destroying, or erasing, or allowing the alteration, destruction, or erasure of, any software or data on any Dominion voting machine in Cobb, Gwinnett, and Cherokee Counties.
This temporary restraining order shall remain in effect for ten days, or until further order of the Court, whichever comes first.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 29th day of November, 2020, at 10:10 p.m. EST."
Cowardly and pathetic ya?Delete
But its been getting more and more that way since they got away with popping JFK.
They got away with popping JFK, after he turned vs. the DS, for their deceit in the Bay of Pigs fiasco?Delete
That's because every official we expect to investigate has to first admit that THEY DIDN'T DO THE ORIGINAL JOB WE HIRED THEM FOR! Think about this. What human being in the public eye right now is willing to say 'yes - I f-ed up! let me go back and see if I can make it right. We are talking about the most hypocritical and sleaziest people on the planet and you are now expecting them to do the right thing? Nope - they are doubling down on their malfeasance. Count on it.Delete

It appears we are in a “How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb” time frame, but it maybe it’s a time of “The Manchurian Candidate,”. mean, it’s clear Biden was never known as “The Candidate.”ReplyDelete
There won't be anything on the machines. We already have the good dr's affidavit that explains that the digital manipulation didn't happen on the machines but in transit further up line. The changes that were made on the machines would have been to change the configuration to turn off logging functionality. Or to allow manipulation of the logs. They would have reset the configuration when they were done to hide their tracks. The evidence will be in the actual physical ballots and in the Braynard work. Their plan going in was set for well coordinated ballot stuffing, their backup plan involved changing the tally in Spain/Frankfurt and desperately backfilling /replacing ballots to correspond.ReplyDelete

Lin Wood in the news claims software updates are happening to Georgia machines right now.ReplyDelete
It is back on again - for three big counties of Coibb Gwinnett and CherokeeReplyDelete

Powell/Wood will amend complaint Monday to name county officials as well as state; Judge should then grant emergency order to freeze wiping of voting machines.
Oh you can't make this stuff up anymore 😂😆😂ReplyDelete
THIRD ORDER ISSUED and machines are ordered seized.
a third Order was issued by the Court at 22:10 last night...ReplyDelete
Third time's a charm. We got thisReplyDelete
'My guess is that the Judge has finally decided his reputation is more important than his political preferences, but that might be too late.ReplyDelete
Only way he can recover is to rule in favor of the "Trump" litigants based on the facts and the law.
I'm hoping we see a order to allow discovery here soon, 10 days is not a long time for preservation but it's a lifetime in election hearings.ReplyDelete
Short of using a data wipe (like a cloth) anything overwritten should be recoverable. There is no way they could take the hours and hours it takes to do a wipe like that on hundreds or machines anyways.
I'm also wanting to hear what happens in the counties still recounting because they would seem to be stuck at this point.
I think SOME celebration should be in order because it appears we have a judge that didn't toss the hot potato for a change which means we have acceptance of Sidney and Lyn's evidence in a federal court.
Mark please help us grasp at these straws. Thoughts? Ideas?
For what its worth, it may be helpful to keep in mind that dismissals for lack of standing and other jurisdictional or procedural grounds do not constitute rulings on the substantive merits. In other words these dismissals generally should not constitute res judicata on the subject matter of the dispute.ReplyDelete
I expect Giuliani and Powell and Wood to file procedurally defensible cases and then have their day in court on the merits.
Does this hold water today?ReplyDelete
"Chief Justice Roberts in Shelby County v. Holder reasoned that statistical data may be used as evidence. Precedent has been set"
Of course. This isn't evidence. Evidence is anything that tends to be probative. No one piece of evidence need be smoking gun stuff--it can be cumulative. None of this is news.Delete
