Too Late The Kraken?

My day has hardly begun and already the Silver Fox and various commenters (h/t Ray So-Cal and Cassander) are inundating me with reading material. Is there anything going on out in the world? How would I know?

One thing I've noticed, however. There seems to be an increasing air of doom and gloom among commenters on the Right, even while the Trump team continues to exude their own air of supreme confidence--not only in the righteousness of their cause but in their ultimate victory.

Just now I responded as follows to Mike Sylwester:

Mike Sylwester November 19, 2020 at 8:47 AM

At this point, the Trump team needs to present a credible confession of someone who used computers to massively affect votes. Without such a confession, Trump has lost the election.

Confessions--especially when the target is backed up by The Deep State--are far easier said than done. I would prefer to hope that the statistical evidence can be presented in a convincing fashion. As far back as 1976 a federal court HELD--not just opined--that statistical evidence could lead to a complete REDO of an election. The use of statistics for evidentiary purposes has become light years more sophisticated in the intervening close on to half a century. Don't say never yet.

I realize that that such assurances may seem at this point to be a slender reed on which to place our hopes. It may be that the recount tactics we're seeing for now--the pursuit of voter level fraud--are in the nature of a legal holding or delaying pattern. I'm speculating in that regard, but I say that because I've maintained in the past, like Mike, that in the final analysis the election fraud case must be the important one. That's all I have to offer for now, beyond the continuing accumulation of statistical detail that we see on the internet, day after day.

In the meantime, I offer two articles that are conceptually linked, although their approaches may seem somewhat different. The first article was linked by Cassander and examines the shadowy world of Lord Mark Malloch Brown. (As an aside, it's a continual source of bemusement to me that life-long Brit Lefties like Mark Brown accept peerships and become Lords of the realm. Go figure, eh? It must say something about the Left elites.)

I present this article for a limited purpose:

Lord Malloch Brown Revealed: The British Hand Behind the Coup Shows Its Scales Again

My purpose for the somewhat lengthy quote below is to make the limited case that, yes, despite all we've been conditioned to believe to the contrary, large international conspiracies do exist. Globalism, The New World Order, The Great Reset, The Deep State--call them what you will, but behind these movements there actually exists a cast of players with a history. The author of this article presents the history of a key player--Malloch Brown. I urge you to read it all. However, I offer you his big picture summary regard The Deep State and elections. The author begins with a theme that I hope is familiar--that the Deep State is international, with a very significant British component, and that the British contingent has been highly active in US politics:

Throughout the four-year drama of Russiagate, the hand of British intelligence has revealed itself continuously.

From the obvious role of Sir Richard Dearlove and his former MI6 underlying Christopher Steele who together played a driving role in shaping the dodgy dossier, to their involvement with Oxford Rhodes Scholar Strobe Talbott in composing, promoting and marketing the fraudulent dossier to targeted members of Congress and media, to British Ambassador Sir Darroch caught “flooding the zone” with British intelligence assets to shape Trump’s perception of the world, to the array of British entrapment operations that targeted Michael Flynn as early as 2014 in London… wherever one looks, the hand of British intelligence seems to be everywhere.

While vast effort is made to downplay the British roots of the deep state by the media which tends to portray this problem from a partisan narrative of “democratic party corruption”, this sleight of hand misses the causal nexus and demands we believe that the tail truly wags the dog.

The uncomfortable truth which many are either too afraid, lazy or corrupt to admit is that since the moment John F Kennedy died on November 22, 1963, both the Democratic and Republican Parties have undergone a slow take-over by this foreign parasite. The thing that has come to be known as the “deep state” was never based on one party or another, and never emanated from anything native to the Constitutional traditions of the US government itself as I outlined in my previous article “Understanding the Trifold Nature of the Deep State”.

While the Republican party of George Bush was in power, this deep state had used its controls of computerized vote counting to rig elections in 2000 and 2004 in its favor as showcased brilliantly in the 2006 documentary Hacking Democracy. Later, when it was time for a controlled opposition to take power in 2008, it did the same thing under a different cast of characters.

While one side of the unipolar world government agenda was driven by a view that the USA should forever be the primary global police force governing a zero sum system of perpetual war, with an unelected elite managing the system from above, the other side believed that the USA should surrender its claims to sovereignty to an international global body with unelected technocrats and financiers at the top managing the zero sum system of perpetual war from above.

Notice the common denominator?

Election Theft as Russiagate 5.0

Now that it has become increasingly clear that mass election fraud has swept across the USA in an effort to accomplish what four years of Russiagate failed to achieve, yet another light has fallen upon the British hand behind Biden which aims to dissolve any nationalist spirit remaining in the embattled republic.

As I outlined in my last report, the largest private computer voting system in the USA which services 30 states and 70 million voters was shown to be at the heart of the current election theft. In that article, it was made clear that Dominion Voting Systems is a Canadian company which dominates the USA’s private computerized voting systems and is closely tied to another larger company called Smartmatic.

For those still out of the loop, Smartmatic furnishes voting machines and its software (backdoor codes and all) to governments all around the world and is highly enmeshed with the Clinton Foundation, Soros’ Open Society and Nancy Pelosi’s very own Chief of Staff.

Not only that, but the key figure controlling Smartmatic is none other than Lord Mark Malloch Brown, a former vice chairman of George Soros’ Investment Funds (2007), as well as Soros’ Open Society Institute and World Economic Forum, former Vice President at the World Bank (1995-1999), UN Administrator for Development (1999-2005), UN Deputy Secretary General and UK Minister of State for Africa, Asia and the UN (2007-2009). These are just a few hats he has worn in recent years which we will explore in greater detail.

OK. I'm not going to attempt to argue the details. However I am here to tell you that if you think for a moment that Malloch Brown is not closely tied to Brit Intel then ... you'd best reconsider. What we see here are the international vested interests for whom Donald J. Trump is an existential threat who must be eliminated at all costs, at any price to the American constitutional order. And that all ties in to mass election fraud, as we now see it occurring on a remarkable scale here in the US. It's not pleasant to think of ourselves as marionettes rather than witting actors--albeit each on a tiny scale--in a political drama. Malloch Brown and his cohorts want you to continue to dismiss such unpleasant thoughts and acquiesce in the inauguration of a president who is patently owned and operated by international interests--you surely didn't think his and his son's financial hijinks were opaque to the international Deep State, did you? His successor--who slept her way to this position--will of course be as putty in their hands

Now, Ray So-Cal has linked another article that dispenses with the international intel intrigue--for the most part. He does touch lightly on some unavoidable aspects of that, including a reference, of course, to Malloch Brown. For the most part, however, he concentrates quite simply on the inherent credibility of conspiracy theory in the very specific context of this election. The article is wonderfully well written and the author makes his argument in colorful but, for me, quite convincing style:

Hurry Up With That Kraken, Will You?

The Trump campaign’s legal team seems quite confident of a big win to come. Should they be?

As you can see, the author is addressing all our anxieties about the outcome of this "election."

He begins by tracing the origins of the mythical Kraken--enlightening to me. Then he moves to our concerns and a justification for the strategy that Sidney Powell has adopted:

In those movies the Kraken is surely a fearsome creature. We don’t yet know how fearsome is Powell’s Kraken.

What we do know is that Powell and other members of the team, like Rudy Giuliani, Jenna Ellis, and, unofficially, Lin Wood, have been somewhat shockingly confident in the last few days. ...


That’s one reason Americans of faith in the country as founded should guard against fatalism and surrender as the results of the failed 2020 election are litigated. ...


Still, those winds blow.

Powell’s Kraken had better be big and bad.

According to her, though, it is. Over the weekend Powell gave the broad outlines of a rather shocking, widespread conspiracy involving the electronic hacking of America’s elections through a foreign-owned company called Dominion Voting Systems and a tabulation software from a company called Smartmatic, which was created in Venezuela. And also another company known as Scytl, whose headquarters is in Barcelona, Spain. In fact, it’s alleged, the votes going into these systems were actually counted in Europe and then fed back here.


Yes, it all sounds quite fanciful, like a John Grisham or John le CarrĂ© novel come to life, and the temptation is to throw up one’s hands and ask if these lawyers have lost their minds.

On the other hand, American politics has lost its immunity to fanciful conspiracy theories coming true.

Let’s remember that the Left did everything it could to derail the Trump presidency by use of perhaps the most absurd conspiracy theory this side of chemtrails: that the president colluded with Vladimir Putin to rig the 2016 election with $200,000 in Facebook ads.

And it turned out the real conspiracy was as absurd as it was true: that a dossier full of quite ridiculous assertations bought and paid for by the Hillary Clinton campaign was used as a pretext for an outgoing presidential administration to turn the full investigative powers of the intelligence community and the Department of Justice onto a presidential campaign of an opposite party for the purposes of opposition research.

It makes Watergate sound like a penny-ante burglary, doesn’t it?

Then there was another true conspiracy, namely that the vice president of that corrupt former administration had used his crackhead son as the front man for a pay-for-play bribery and racketeering scheme to suction several million dollars from a corrupt Ukrainian oil and gas company in return for weaponizing American foreign policy against that company’s domestic enemies.

And when that conspiracy began to surface, we were given another absurd and widespread conspiracy theory; namely, that when Trump asked for cooperation from Ukraine’s new president in getting to the bottom of the Biden/Burisma corruption it was evidence he was seeking a quid pro quo for American aid.

The conspiracy theory, which was the flip side of an actual Democrat racket, was advanced as the justification for impeaching Trump.

No, we’ve seen enough of American politics in 2020 that no allegations can be dismissed out of hand.


What we know already isn’t good. That British Lord Mark Malloch-Brown is involved with Smartmatic, given his long-standing Soros ties, isn’t encouraging. Nor is it a good thing that Kamala Harris’ husband, Douglas Emhoff, is involved with a Smartmatic spinoff. Or that Peter Neffenger, a Smartmatic board member, is now a member of Biden’s transition team.

The more you examine the players involved, and the more statistical analysis of the election you see, specifically in the hard-to-reconcile differences in voting results in Atlanta, Milwaukee, Detroit, Las Vegas, and Philadelphia compared to those in large cities not located in disputed states, and the more affidavits are filed containing eyewitness reports of brazen mishandling of ballots, the more this election begins to resemble the doctored frauds of Latin America. And the more disgraceful the whole thing becomes.

There’s a reason less than half of America believes Biden fairly won the 2020 election. 

No, I haven't presented proof--except by analogy. But analogy is in fact a very strong argument. I believe Powell is on the right track. The real question is a matter of time. We know that time isn't on her side, but to what degree is it working against her--and Trump? Is that what the conspirators are counting on? The fate of our republic could be riding on the answer.


  1. British elites huh. Monty Python had a great skit on upper class elites. It was a competition for upper class twit of the year.

    Rob S

    1. Lyndon LaRouche could fill the gaps for you in on this.

  2. Recounts and delaying certification as a holding move is about the only path now to victory. I continue to be skeptical that these efforts will be successful. But I also never count Trump out.

    But time is not on his side. The longer this goes without convincing evidence on the scale necessary to overturn the results, the more Biden inertia will overcome any remaining challenges.

  3. Mark has invited me to resubmit a comment I made regarding the American Spectator 'Kraken' article Ray linked earlier today and which Mark has discussed at some length above.

    The article has made me wonder, given all of the deep Deep State connections to previous attempts to oust Trump, and the 'fact' that some of the election data may have found its way into computers in Germany, which computers may have been maintained by US intelligence entities...whether it was the CIA (or some other Deep State alphabet agency) which actually changed the votes.

    I ask because the similarity and overlap between counting shutdowns in several states and vote flips turning up as similar statistical anomalies or impossibilities in various states suggests a degree of coordinated and sophisticated election fraud which it is hard to imagine the local hacks in Philadelphia and Detroit and Milwaukee and Atlanta (as practiced as they are in the art of voter fraud) could have pulled off independently by themselves.

    And would Dominion and/or Smartmatic officials have decided on their own initiative to plug in some new software in machines across the country and change a few votes? Which votes? How many? Was Admiral Neffenger sitting at a keyboard in his study at 4 am Wednesday morning deciding where to insert software and which votes to switch?

    Could someone (ones) have been sitting in a room in Germany (or wherever) watching the whole national picture unfold and then calling the shots on vote changing in various jurisdictions, such as Red districts where a few more votes for Biden wouldn't be noticed? Where local election officials wouldn't even know that votes had been changed?

    Of course this is a conspiracy...theory...but given the utter audaciousness and criminality of the Russia Hoax, the Flynn Gambit, and the Impeachment Joke, all of which were pretty clearly orchestrated and coordinated by a conspiracy within the Deep State, should we dismiss the possibility out of hand?

    And, if this is the case, perhaps this is the evidentiary package that Sidney Powell and team are taking their time assembling.

    Just a theory...but I am keeping an open mind and will stay the course.

    1. Well, the scheme seems to have been based on an algorithm that switched votes progressively based on increasing shades of red counties. No live-action monitoring or programming updates needed.

      The counting pauses were the analog (hand count) reaction when it was realized that the digital scheme wasn't enough to overcome the red wave.

      The question becomes where and how much? Shouldn't it be manifest upon recount? Shouldn't we be seeing it in Georgia, or did they perhaps not do it there thinking they had it in the bag in Florida (where it appears, against logic, that Biden made significant gains in red districts - perhaps they believed their hype and didn't anticipate Trump's gains in the blue districts)?

      Is this why there was an emergency 'how do we count' meeting in Wisconsin last night? But then, if the digital scheme focused on the red counties, aren't we recounting in the wrong place? Could that be the Kraken? Find a couple hundred bad ballots in the blue districts (hard to falsify illegal ballots once they're mixed in) and then drop the server MOAB to show the true distortion in the red districts?

      As noted elsewhere, this reads like a great novel. Are we living in a John Grisham plot? Trump was quite effective on reality TV. The problem with 4D chess is that you'll never know if your witnessing mastery or foolishness until the final move.

      I'll certainly never read a whodunit story the same way again.

  4. Of course, I am not saying anything new here- the Democrats aren't stupid enough, in my opinion, to depend on an electronic tabulation change- in short, the Biden ballots exist to be counted by hand. Trump's team needs to be focused on getting signature authentication in all the states. There isn't a single state in the union that doesn't depend on signature authentication as the primary security feature of absentee voting- not a single one, and yet, apparently we now have record low mail in ballot rejection rates in precisely those locations under the complete control of Democrats.

    I think if you do real authentication of signatures, Biden's lead in AZ, PA, WI, and GA completely vanishes. I suspect that almost all of his national vote lead will also completely vanish because I believe this was a national 50 state effort, but it failed in most of the states Trump did win, and wasn't even needed in the others that were safely Biden states.

    Will the courts want to open up this nasty can of worms? I don't know. It would, of course, be far simpler to demonstrate an electronic vote fraud, but I think if this could be done, it would have been done by this point. It is difficult for me to believe they are withholding a real Kraken for some other reason.

    1. "...the Democrats aren't stupid enough, in my opinion, to depend on an electronic tabulation change- in short, the Biden ballots exist to be counted by hand."

      Remember, though, the only reason so much irrefutable evidence was found that fueled SpyGate was that the Democrats were so utterly convinced Hillary would be elected, they got sloppy and left a paper trail a mile wide and 10 miles long; they were 100% arrogantly confident all their self-acknowledged felonious activity would be erased on Hillary taking power...and then Trump.

      Could it be that once the numbers were so far up for Trump (in PA, Trump was up almost 800K before the 'pause') that they got sloppy again, panicked and again left electronic evidence that (we hope) culminates in indictments?

      Who knows...but TDS, as we've all witnessed first hand, starts by blinding it's victim and as the disease progresses, metastasizes to the brain stem, the onto the brain itself rendering the victim incapable of rational thought, and unmoored from reality. ;0) Dave

    2. "Georgia recount worker with 20 years of experience handling ballots described an odd batch that stood out. Pristine sheets with no markings and 98% for Biden"

    3. "the Democrats aren't stupid enough, in my opinion"

      You may be spared the re-education camp, but not the gulag.



  6. I'm starting to get that sinking feeling, all too familiar -- the KRAKEN is merely Sidney Powell's attempt to uphold the rule of law by means provided only by THE RULE OF LAW. Unfortunately what we have learned in painful fashion over the last four years, the rule of law is dead. We can rehearse the legal niceties all day long till we're blue in the face, but lawyers are pawns too. The fight is raw political, raw extra judicial its just that we're not quite yet admitting it to ourselves. The Dem\lib\prog\Davos\Chicom forces are not afraid to go to the mattresses, but the Repb\conservative\constitutional\nationalist\populist forces are afraid. Whither republicans in state legislatures, republican governors, republican congressmen and women, republican senators? Whither Bill Barr. For comity, they will give up the republic. To me it seems clear we're heading for a Trump concession and a Trump fallback to building a new political party based on the support. it seems that's all that's left to our side -- to regroup, throw off those who are afraid to do battle and re-engage some time later maybe a lot later maybe too late with those who are willing to fight.

    1. Trump is not going to concede, and Patriots will not stand for a blatantly stolen election.

      If Trump is not re-inagurated, there will be a civil war. It won't be pretty. It will be a time for choosing.

    2. "the rule of law is dead"

      Yes, Virginia ... and Pennsylvania and Michigan and Wisconsin and Georgia and Nevada, there are Obama judges.

  7. As an old analyst: I submit, that knowing the Genesis, gives the path, and here is my humble work to explain the "dysfunctional set up" See:

    My world was the street, so I have a modest position on all this - The target for us is the CFR, the "Trojan Horse" that the Congress has succumbed to, and the money pockets for subversive operations thorough our "corrupt" agencies-

  8. Live press conference Rudy, DiGenova, Sidney Powell, giving details of evidence of fraud in the election:

    >> <<

    Rudy keeps alluding to additional evidence they are not revealing at present.

  9. Sidney Powell giving a news conference right now. Rush is airing it, with his usual commercial interruptions.


  10. I have been watching Rudy Giuliani, Jenna Ellis and Sidney Powell's press conference. If you were concerned Trump's lawyers don't have a case...think again.

    Stunning. Absolutely stunning. My hands are literally shaking as I type.

    Everyone of us who is concerned about this 'story' needs to understand what these lawyers are saying.

    If these lawyers are able to prove in court the evidence they say they will be able to prove, then this presidential election was stolen and corrupted. It is hard to believe these lawyers would make allegations before the American people which they are not able to prove. As Sidney Powell just said, "the world is watching."

    As I wrote above, my hands are still shaking...

    1. Like they said, this is the opening statement. They weren't just claims about what they can prove; they were very specific about the evidence they have.

      Sidney Powell is so outraged at what has happened, you could see tears coming from her eyes; and she is normally a very composed person who speaks without obvious emotion.

      The press conference was eye-opening, and shocking.

      I watched it on FNC, and Andy McCarthy acts like the evidence is a nothing burger. He is a disgrace to the legal profession. Maybe there is a reason he was only a former Assistant U.S. Attorney.

    2. Well, McCarthy was originally a NeverTrumper, so... take him for what he's worth.

    3. "That was an excruciating 90 minutes. I have said it before. I understand the need to have time to gather evidence but time is of the essence. Certifications are going forward next week. This is not the time for 'opening arguments' but evidence production." --Jonathan Turley

      "I'm surprised Rudy picked this hill to dye on" --Chuck Ross, Daily Caller

  11. It strikes me now that Biden became the candidate because the 'quid pro quo' for running was to participate in the MOAEF (the Mother of All Election Frauds). This required a 'dirty' candidate who would play ball. Perhaps this excluded some of Mr. Biden's competitors.

    Who better than Mr Biden to run, who was already owned by the Deep State. Who had more than enough of his own self interest to protect in this massive Conspiracy.


  12. If You Can't Smile And Say Yes
    (Please Don't Cry And Say No)-Nat Cole

    Knock me a kiss, you'll never miss
    When I'm ready to go.
    But if you can't smile and say yes,
    Please don't cry and say no!
    Squeeze me a squeeze in these fine clothes,
    Mm I love you so.
    But if you can't smile and say yes,
    Please don't cry and say no!
    When I ask for a date, the answer is no.

    Baby, let bygones be bygones,
    'Cause men are scarce as nylons.

  13. I had to love it when Rudy (who, by the way, was excellent this time around) said (agreeing with me) that Hillary Clinton is the tell.

    On August 26, Mrs Clinton said, “Joe Biden should not concede under any circumstances, because I think this is going to drag out, and eventually I do believe he will win if we don't give an inch...”

  14. Stupidity or Hubris?

    I voted for hubris, and based on past success with getting away with election fraud in the US they may have good reason to believe they can get away with flagrant election fraud.

    >the Democrats aren't stupid enough, in my opinion

  15. Some of the evidence people are waiting for has already been submitted in court filings. The evidence are sworn affidavits that election rules were systematically broken to prevent any validation of mail-in votes in Democrat-controlled processing centers.
    Will the state legislators just shrug and allow this fraud to stand, or will they reject the fraud? We shall see.

  16. The deep state and its allies made the same error as others in history. Interpret it literally or metaphorically:

    They have opened the gates of Hell in the belief that they can control what comes through them. They can't. It's going to be ugly.

    Man can open the gates, but only God can close them. He has in the past, but not always right away. We are, as we have always been (Jew and Gentile), "a stiff-necked people."

    1. Amen! One thing in our - & PDJT’s favor - is that all these efforts to remove him have been rather ham-handed, they’ve bungled every attempt from the Steele Dossier to the “impeachment”.

      Kind of like watching a Roadrunner cartoon in real time ;<)

  17. Mark, when looking up info on the original source of the Malloch Brown story here...

    you get no "about" info on their site and web search says RUSSIA, RUSSIA, RUSSIA... any thoughts about this info. Should I be cautious??

    1. There is "about" info as well a page listing contributors. At a glance I'd say their orientation opposes globalism. That would also mean opposing the demonization of Russia that is characteristic of globalists. Many of the contributors are former analysts who specialized in Russia.

  18. Someone used an algorithm on the election and it can be proven. People are making this harder than it needs to be

  19. Turley and McCarthy are still talking out of the side of their mouths to their liberal friends, hoping they, too, aren't going to be cancelled for having expressed legal conclusions which support Trump's interests.

    I think they'll be disappointed.

  20. Ugh. More roller coaster.

    Now Tucker Carlson finds fault with Sidney Powell for not dropping everything this afternoon to provide Tucker's show with all her evidence.

    Implication: Sidney doesn't have the proof.

    Well, maybe she does and maybe she doesn't.

    As others have said and are saying...we will just have to let this process play out and see what Sidney and Rudy can prove in court and then what the remedies turn out to be.

    FWIW, and I'm repeating myself, I found a lot of the allegations and information in Rudy and Sidney's presentations to be very concerning.

    1. My new post may address some of that.

    2. It looks like Sidney Powell was actually on Lou Dobbs when Tucker was complaining she wouldn't go on his show...and Tucker implies she doesn't want to go on his show because she doesn't have the evidence...

      A little internecine competition btw Fox 'personalities'?

      I've read your post re McInerney...and listened to his audio tape...his perspective (which he admits in a couple of places is educated guesses) is encouraging...

      As I posted somewhere else on your blog...I am believing Sidney and Rudy and have my fingers crossed that the proof they are ultimately able to establish in court, and the remedies available to them, are sufficient to stop Biden.

    3. Yay Tucker outs himself as the idiotic fashion tasteless choot we've always know and only recently been forced by the sheep to acknowledge.

      That and his successful burying of Boubulinski.

  21. Tucker has no problem working for a turncoat apparent violation of his conservative principles??? Same for Hannity! Are we to believe that they are reallycommitted to principle, or their financial needs?

    1. Very disappointed in Tucker, because he often says excellent things that need saying--although every now and then he slips. However, this time I suspect he really shot himself in the foot. This was a certifiably dumb move on his part.
