A good way to start the week may be to briefly summarize where we stand with the big picture of the Sidney Powell challenge. Hopefully this will move us past what increasingly appears to have been a distraction--intentional or not: The Trump team announcement that simply confirmed what Powell has always been clear about: She's working on her own for "we the people." We the people need to take stock before events begin multiplying.
While I say "the Sidney Powell challenge", what we're really talking about is the distinction between traditional types of "voter" fraud and the less familiar forms of "election" fraud. People like Matt Braynard (and others) are doing the research into voter fraud in this election--false ballots based on dead persons, persons who have moved out of state continuing to vote, persons voting in more than one state, absentee or mail-in ballots being cast in the name of people who didn't actually cast them. This is the underpinning for much of what happened, and there's no question but that this fraud was extensive and well organized. It was made possible by commercial databases, which also make the fraud discovery research possible on a scale well above gathering anecdotal evidence from individuals.
"Election" fraud refers to the use of software controls to manipulate votes--using algorithms to apportion or "weight" votes between candidates on a predetermined proportional basis, shifting votes between candidates, etc. This is the type of fraud that Sidney Powell has been alleging and is supported by the research of people like Russ Ramsland. However, behind both types of fraud are the same types of basically common sense observations that lead so many to conclude that the 2020 election results are wildly improbable.
Those are all aspects of the fraud issue that we've been discussing in posts and comments.
Without offering anything new--which we hope will occur later in the week per Sidney Powell's assurances--I want to present here some of that common sense support for the allegations of election fraud.
These allegations largely rest on the fact that Dominion voting machines have been found to have been frequently connected to the internet. This renders them easily accessible to the backup servers said to have been located in Spain and, especially, in Germany (we won't attempt to get into other vulnerabilities). The claim has been made that one or more "servers"--which, of course, cannot be equated with any corresponding number of physical machines--were seized in Germany. While the details are very sketchy and originally centered around the US Army conducting a "raid," the situation has gradually become more clear. The most likely scenario is of a strictly legal search and seizure under the full legal authority of the US Government, targeting one or more servers located at a CIA facility on property officially associated with the US Army. The full legal authority, in my opinion, would ultimately have come through DoJ.
Confirmation of this "raid" or, more properly speaking, seizure has been through sources that are not strictly official--including Sidney Powell, but also a staffer with the Trump Recount committee. Reporters like Adam Housley have also stated that they have received confirmation. Over the weekend we've seen a concerted pushback against this reporting by clearly Establishment and Deep State operatives, largely using the non-denial denial technique--denying artificially specific statements that avoid the real issues. Thus, Dominion, while refusing to testify before the PA legislature, put forward a spokesman (with clearly anti-Trump connections, e.g., to Paul Ryan and John Boehner) to deny that Dominion machines had "physically" transferred votes--an over specific statement that neither Powell nor anyone else had made. Use of this technique tends to suggest that Powell is over a very real target.
Yesterday evening Emerald Robinson (WH correspondent for Newsmax) joined her voice to those reporters claiming to have confirmed a seizure operation in Germany:
BREAKING: a national security source confirms to me that “a piece of hardware has been secured” from Germany.
Yes, for right now we have what could be called dueling sources, but it's important to consider that those making the positive statements--as opposed to the denials--are staking their personal reputations. By contrast, nobody will even remember who the Dominion spokesman was. As for other sources--the "Army spokesman," the "national security official"--they're all anonymous. So reporters like Robinson have presumably vetted their sources' credibility to the best of their ability.
Note in Robinson's tweet that she and/or her source avoid over specific statements: There is no mention of any specific agency, for example, as occurred early on. Also, instead of overly dramatic--and always legally and politically improbable--references to a "raid", we have a sober and far more legally probable characterization: "a piece of hardware has been secured”a piece of hardware has been secured”.
Beyond that specific reporting, Robinson offered some observations that I find resonate in several directions. I've arranged these observations--which, of course, first appeared as individual tweets--in a more running narrative style, for ease of reading. The thread running through all this is of the Establishment--of both parties--and the Deep State closing ranks against a foreign body. All abetted by a corrupted Media. All in the interests of a Globalist elite:

Democrats want [Trump] gone. The GOP wants him gone. The Deep State wants him gone. Hollywood wants him gone. Silicon Valley wants him gone. China wants him gone. Academia wants him gone.
There's one problem: a majority of Americans want him to stay.

Powell & Giuliani don't need to convince you about election fraud. You already know there's election fraud.
1) The vote count STOPPED on election night.
2) The Dept of Defense used a company in Spain to handle 78 million votes.
Ask yourself: Why's the DoD involved at all?
If you're wondering about the Sidney Powell situation today, you need to recall: she gave an interview with @newsmax last night where she called out both political parties for their involvement in vote rigging with Dominion.
She mentioned the Doug Collins race.
If you want a perfect example of the establishment GOP, it’s @Liz_Cheney.
She’s a creature of GOP donors. She has no base of popular support. She’s a Never Trumper. Outside of Halliburton office parties, nobody cares what she thinks.
Yet she’s a GOP leader in the House.
And now this morning we see this exchange--common sense:

Details @jonathanvswan can’t find:
1) Dominion’s registered lobbyist in Georgia was [Governor] Brian Kemp’s Chief of Staff!
2) Who owns Dominion? Who owns Smartmatic? Our election companies are in fact shell companies.
3) Why are US votes counted by bankrupt Spanish firms?
The publicly-stated position of President Trump's legal team is that the reason Trump lost Georgia is because Georgia's Republican Gov. Brian Kemp has been bribed by a Venezuelan front company in cahoots with the CIA to throw elections to Communists. twitter.com/alexsalvinews/…
Finally, Andrea Widburg also summarizes these common sense views (Making sense of the news about Sidney Powell). Toward the end of her full article we find the passage I've quoted (below). Again, we've all been discussing these observations and related ones, but as with Emerald Robinson's observations this serves as a point of reference:
There are two ways to view all this:
The "it's all over" viewpoint. Powell overpromised, and she's become a source of danger and mortification who must be jettisoned.
The "there is a deep game afoot" viewpoint. Here are the moving parts behind this approach:
1. The facts about Dominion and Smartmatic, above.
2. The strong statistical indication about voter fraud, also above.
3. Powell's statement to Larry O'Connor on Friday that she represents the people, not the president:￼
4. The information that Michael Flynn, Jr. and Lin Wood provided about the administration separating from Powell for financial reasons and her still being in the fight.
Events should be developing from these points of reference.
UPDATE: Per Don Surber, a canny observer of the political scene, re l'affaire Powell:
Confused? You are supposed to be. Sun Tzu said, "The whole secret lies in confusing the enemy, so that he cannot fathom our real intent."
Chill. The tumblers are about to fall into place, unlocking the mystery.
The signs all point to Democrats stole the election -- and screwed up by not following up down ballot.
As Silvio Canto Jr. wrote, "We learned who shot JR, but will we ever learn who voted for Biden?"
