    How a Guy in Temecula Could Save the Election for Trump

    NYT praises Powell’s expert on Dominion fraud

    By Richard Stenger, November 27, 2020 9:24 am

    As it turns out, attorney Sidney Powell has plenty of firepower to back up her Kraken claims about the 2020 presidential election, including high-tech intelligence experts who concluded electronic ballot theft tipped the results in key battleground states.

    First and foremost is Dr. Navid Keshavarz-Nia, an experienced cyber crimes investigator and digital security executive, who has worked with the CIA, NSA, FBI, and U.S. military counterintelligence, as well as corporate financial giants like Deutsche Bank and Stripe.

    In an affidavit filed with Powell’s complaint in a Georgia court before midnight Wednesday, Keshavarz-Nia had this bombshell assessment.

    Hundreds of thousands of votes

    “I conclude with high confidence that the election 2020 data were altered in all battleground states resulting in hundreds of thousands of votes that were cast for President Trump to be transferred to Vice President Biden.”

    These alterations, he added, resulted from widespread vulnerabilities in voting software and systems that allowed a “Man-in-the-Middle cyber attack” by covert operators.

    Chances are good the mainstream media, on cue, will launch an assault on the credibility of Keshavarz-Nia, who currently lives in Temecula, California.

    Exposed a fake CIA spy

    But months ago, the New York Times spoke highly of him for his role in exposing a scam artist named Garrison Courtney posing as a CIA spy. “Keshavarz-Nia, those who worked with him said, ‘was always the smartest person in the room,’” the Times reported on September 9 in the story, “How One Man Conned the Beltway.”

    The Washington Monthly was similarly favorable. In a September 17 piece, “The Spy Who Was a Grifter,” it called Keshavarz-Nia a “hero” for exposing Courtney, who was sentenced in October to seven years in prison for an elaborate fraud scheme that raked in at least $4.4 million.

    Iran and China had access

    Powell, who promised to “release the Kraken” to overturn the presidential ballot results in battleground states, had other big-time intel backup in her legal filing in Georgia and a similar one in Michigan.

    The 108-page document refers to a former military electronic intelligence analyst with the 305th Military Intelligence Battalion, who concluded:

    “The Dominion software was accessed by agents acting on behalf of China and Iran in order to monitor and manipulate elections, including the most recent U.S. general election in 2020.”

    A block chain prophecy

    Could there be more high-tech bombshells ahead, either from Powell or the President’s legal teams? One early theory was the election ballots could have been tracked via digital blockchains, which would serve as hidden “watermarks.” Whether the technology was deployed or not, it certainly was on Keshavarz-Nia’s mind four years ago.

    The problem with electronic voting in general, he noted in a 2016 cybersecurity forum in, coincidentally, Atlanta, Georgia, was that it’s easy to erase evidence of changing votes.

    “When you have the implementation of some of these blockchains in things like electronic voting you have records of it, actually multiple records of it that are nearly impossible to destroy,” he told GDS Group.com.

    “That’s the real value of the blockchain. They are immutable.”

    And the affidavit. Sounds like he knows what he's talking about.

    There are a number of US Lawyers are picking apart Sidney Powell’s Kracken cases. Most are inferring that it’s amateurish and baseless. Which is disappointing because I hope that this soap opera gets juicy.

    Im hearing that all the losses in the lower courrts are part of the trump plan. So they can just get it to the supreme court where its republocan friendly.

    Does this sound legit?

    Not sure they want to lose the lower courts but I believe they're right about the Supreme Court being Republican friendly. Maybe losing speeds up the process.

    So in our country, cases don’t go to the High Court unless the court reckons that your case has merit. So a loser in a state or federal appeal can seek leave and must persuade the Court in a preliminary hearing that there are special reasons why the appeal should be heard at the hight court.

    Mike (my Mike, not IALB’s Mike) explains something similar here.

    The PA judge who threw the case out was a Trump appointment.

    I think the theory is...if he had have taken the case and seen it through then the Dems would have appealed and taken it to SCOTUS anyways. Time would have then been wasted in the state court.

    So, best thing is to just let it pass straight through due to the time constraint around the whole thing.

    A win for the Trump team in PA, though, with a halt to certification:

    "Since this presents an issue of law which has already been thoroughly briefed by the parties, this Court can state that Petitioners have a likelihood of success on the merits of its Pennsylvania Constitutional claim."

    https://www.marklevinshow.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/301/2020/11/Memorandum-Opinion-Filed.pdf

    Page 11.

    So, as I've said from the beginning, PA will flip. But that only puts Trump on 252, needing 17 to go. That means 2 more states, still.

    Nevada is down to 4000 votes after, shockingly, another machine error saw 6000 votes incorrectly given to Biden. But even if they have something there they still need Georgia or Michigan, as a WI + NV combo isn't enough (16 total).

    Some massive assumptions that Trump appointed SCOTUS judges will rule in favour of the appellant simply because they’re GOP. This is not authoritarian Russia, or is it ? Trump is not Cameron Smith, or is he ?

    I feel the best part of Trump being gone is we do not have to hear so much about America.
