    I'd be worried about being disbarred, for repeatedly bringing cases with substantiated flaws before the court. Scratch that, for $150 million I'd gladly refrain from ever practicing law again. But if the money is going to the RNC, then forget about it ... and isn't that what this is really all about? Keep the GOP sheeple enraged so they continue to send their pennies into the "Recount Fund" so the next slate of neo-cons can be funded. Time for a Money Bomb for the recount, don't you think?

    Yeah, that could well be the case. I was aware of the Benford mixup (Benford is in Minnesota, not Michigan). That was on 20NOV. Cripes, having that slapped in your face, how can you turn around and make the same mistake ten days later? That's the kind of thing that really pisses the pharaohs in the black robes off - it gives them the impression you don't have a real case and are just wasting their time. I've been going through the Navid Keshavarz-Nia affidavit; and at a circumstantial level, it seems pretty tight. But there's a long way to go between "it could have happened" and "it did happen". There are a lot of assumptions in the analysis, and he never had access to the machines in question. He's eminently qualified in cyber-security, but many of his conclusions are based on a normal election rather than one in which half the ballots came in absentee. My take is that if you had a dream team and a similar level of evidence in a death, you'd have an outside chance of convincing a jury to make an award of wrongful death in a civil case, but probably not get a criminal conviction of murder or manslaughter ... and to move forward with election fraud, you need the meet the criminal standard of evidence.

    An affidavit, about the county with more votes than voters? Actually, that's one that I gave her the benefit of the doubt on, and probably shouldn't have. The story it's coming from says "witness". I'd heard her make the accusation, but never verified what it was based upon (she's made a lot of accusations). An extract of her pleading (with the county named) is on Business Insider.

    Two eye witnesses to the same event lend credence to an allegation. 200 eye witnesses to 200 separate events are noting more than allegations. Those are the specifics I'm looking for. Sorry. I haven't seen solid evidence. The witness statements I've seen have been one-off accusations from partisan witnesses. And you gotta show me the code if you're gonna get me to believe the software is malicious. I mean, she alleged, based upon an affidavit, that there were more votes cast in a county than there were voters (or people of voting age, I forget which). When it got down to "specifics", what they discovered was that the county didn't even exist. She's not double-checking her own witness affidavits. I'm assuming (and it might be "twilight zone" assumption) that Powell has shared her evidence with authorities (like Bob Barr). Barr's statement is that

    This was the Danish Study. Guess what it said about the effectiveness of masks in stopping the spread of disease from the mask wearer to others? Absolutely nothing at all - because it didn't study that. What it attempted to study was the effectiveness of masks in stopping the wearer from being infected by others - and it didn't do a very good job at that because it was more of an uncontrolled survey rather than a controlled trial. You can't even say that the two groups in the study were: (A) Mask Wearers and (B) Those Not Wearing Masks. The real groups were: (C) a group of 2,393 people who had been provided with masks, instructions for using the masks, and instructions for an infection-prevention regimen that included hand washing and social distancing. (D) a group of 2,470 people that hadn't been provided with masks or the instructions detailed for Group (C) There were no enforcement controls on either group - which is to say that Group (C) could very well go out without wearing masks, or wearing them improperly (chin diapers, lip diapers), and/or without following the regimen requested. The only control on the group, if you want to call it that, was self-reporting by the individuals involved - and only 46% reported wearing the masks as instructed.

    I haven't done an exhaustive search on this, but as far as I know, state legislatures are typically unicameral or bicameral - and all districts in those houses of the Legislatures are based roughly around population. Generally speaking, there will be multiple rural counties in a single legislative district. For example, a Red and Blue state: Kansas has 105 counties. The Kansas Legislature consists of a 125-member House of Representatives and a 40-member Senate; both are based upon population. Each Senate district must have at least 60,000 inhabitants. The House districts must have at least 19,000 inhabitants. There may be some inequities in the number of inhabitants represented, but the thrust is to have them be roughly equal in population. Illinois has 102 counties. The Illinois Legislature consists of a 118-member House of Representatives and a 59-member Senate. The House of Representatives districts are determined after each census, based upon population. The Senate districts are comprised of two adjacent House of Representative districts. Cook County (Chicago) has 47 members in the House. Both states redistrict/reapportion their legislative districts after each census.

    The Pennsylvania Senate has 50 members (28 are GOP, and 1 Independent) - they need 26 to grab the Electors ... they've got 16 or 17. The Pennsylvania House has 203 Members (113 are GOP) - they need 102 to grab the electors ... they have roughly 57 (they apparently don't know exactly) Sure, that's a walk in the park. Meanwhile, the York Dispatch reports:

    No, he's a narcissist. He's not to blame for that, nobody chooses to be a narcissist. The conditions of his life just produced it. You just have to be aware of it when you're dealing with him. It blesses him with certain advantages, and curses him with a host of disadvantages. You just have to understand those conditions. He struggles with empathy - and that's probably going to be the biggest challenge you have with him (as opposed to psychopaths, who can only fake empathy)

    I'll only comment on the Danish study, because it's the one I looked at. Dr. Paul's conclusion is that wearing the mask did little to control the spread of the virus - which demonstrates a basic lack of understanding about the study. The study was limited to the investigation of whether masks protected the wearer from infection - and actually, it didn't even do a very good job at that. The only way it could have investigated whether masks did anything to control the spread of the virus would have been to trace everyone whom the mask wearers came in contact with to see if they contracted the virus - and the study didn't do that. As far as protection of the mask wearer goes, I'd point out that the study examined two groups. What were those two groups (hint: they weren't (A) mask wearers and (B) non-mask wearers). The primary group was (C) people who had been provided with masks, provided with instructions on how to use the masks, and provided with instructions on hand washing, social distancing, and avoidance of indoor group gathering - and the control group consisted of (D) people who hadn't been provided with masks, nor instructions for how to use them, nor instructions for hand washing, social distancing, and avoidance of indoor group gathering. Group (A) is not the same as Group (C), nor is group (B) the same as Group (D). Nothing precluded the people in Group (C) from not wearing the masks, or wearing them improperly, or violating social distancing rules. Nothing precluded the people in Group (D) from wearing masks or engaging in social distancing. In fact, the only control on mask wearing or social distancing was self-reporting by the individuals involved as to whether they complied or not - and less than half reported that they had complied (and given polling results from the 2016 and 2020 elections, how much credence do you put in the accuracy of those self-reporting results). There is one useful bit of research to come out of the study though ... even if you provide people with masks, instructions for using them, and instructions for social distancing - less than half the people will comply with those recommendations. You have to convince people to take these measures, rather than compel them.
