Sidney Powell Says She's Not Guilty of Defamation
Because 'No Reasonable Person'
Would Have Believed Her 'Outlandish'
Election Conspiracy Theory

Original Article

Posted By: NHGuy, 3/25/2021 8:31:52 AM

Former Trump campaign lawyer Sidney Powell yesterday responded to the $1.3 billion defamation lawsuit that Dominion Voting Systems filed after she repeatedly accused the company of participating in an elaborate international conspiracy to deny Donald Trump his rightful victory in last year's presidential election. Her defense, more or less, is that she did not really mean what she said.


So Sydney Powell said she was basically making stuff up when she talked about the evidence she had and about releasing the Kraken. Why oh why didn't the Trump Administration prepare a crack, experienced legal team without attracting these loons? Everyone knew the Dems would do anything and everything. Gah. The Administration needed a plan and instead, flailed around.

She doesn’t have the money to fight the law suit. Neither did American Thinker. Mike Lindell does, so let’s see what happens there. And we haven’t heard from Rudy yet.

IDK, I believed her. I'm one of the most reasonable people I know. If s he lied about her info, she deserves to go down. I don't want my 'side' to BS me either. That said - it often seems WTP are being lied to from all directions. The Powers That Be are pushing our nation in a direction it would not go on it's own. We are being driven. There's a cliff in the darkness up ahead and we're heading straight for it.

Reason is wrong. This is a hard core legal point between fact and opinion. Suing for ones opinion is a dead end legal fight. That is Powells argument. Her opinion yet to be proven in a court of law is not grounds for the corrupt Dominion law suit.

This Reason article seems to have the effect of disorienting the reader. I'm taking this with a grain of salt. I don't believe my eyes deceived me. Thousands upon thousands showed up at Trump rallies, while a scant few showed up for Biden. And sometimes all we "saw" at Biden's rallies were cars honking. Give me a freaking break!! Trump had the wind behind his back and beneath his wings going into the 2020 election. We are being "gaslighted" every single day by the media. They are trying to disorient us. This "Reason" article is more of it, IMHO. Accept this article's validity at your own peril. Unless, of course, there is something I just don't understand.

Ok, Sydney Powell is a fraud. Always thought that might be the case what with her non-existent Kraken. It doesn't change the fact that the election was stolen. What's sad is Trump had to rely on turkeys like Powell because good help was so hard to find in Washington.

Click the link to Powell's site and read her Motion to Dismiss. This story is at best misleading, but I see a lie. I'm no fan of Powell's, as many know. Her Motion is interesting to read. The core questions, besides jurisdiction and other "technicalities", is whether Dominion is a "public figure" under various precedents, and whether Powell's statements are protected political speech. I saw nothing that indicates she didn't mean what she said in various forums.

I see some folks here that have already condemned Sydney Powell. I, for one, will not. I also understand that there are some states that are dumping Dominion. It is my sincere hope that they lose all of their business and lawsuits.

Wait...I don't doubt that Sidney Powell may have stretched some facts or overemphasized them. But did we not hear hear that something like 9,000 votes for Trump were flipped to Biden in some district in Michigan in the wee hours of Nov. 4th? And we heard that they have hard copes of time-stamped vote tabulations to prove it. And didn't we hear about how Dominion's software caused a rejection rate of ballots that was huge, and that those votes had to be "corrected" by poll workers, where they changed the vote to Biden? This whole thing stinks like dead fish. Funny how Trump said pretty much the same things as Powell, but Dominion didn't try to sue Trump

People, PLEASE!!! Before you accept anything regarding this issue at face value, or accuse a well-respected attorney/s of lying, do some research. Read the entire pleading or at least the part that this article is deliberately misconstruing. One sentence was lifted from her attorneys' defense and is being used to slander her case and pretend there was no fraud in the 2020 presidential election and other elections held across the country . Here is an article shedding light on the other side of this issue: . Don't trust the Gateway Pundit? Read her defense for yourself: . NOTHING in the political news media is what it appears to be and EVERYTHING must be questioned/investigated to determine the truth. Attorney Powell is not a fool. And neither is her legal team. And while you are at it, Regent University conducted a 7-hour video conference this week (March 23, 2021) on Election Integrity. Some of the claims made by Att'y Powell and cases she filed are briefly discussed. Here is a link to see/hear the conference: It has been broken down into 8 parts representing the words of each speaker. Listen while surfing or working. Do your own research. Then, make up your own mind.

The legal world is not a normal world. It is technical, obscure, ruthless and lethal. Powell is employing an obvious legal strategy of turning the plaintiff's words against himself. You cannot simultaneously say that a claim is unbelievable plus sue on the grounds that the claims may be believed. Powell is right: Dominion is undermining their own mines. Let them defend against that first. The suit, itself, proves her claims are credible by the plaintiff's own admission. Dominion is trying to bludgeon her. She is lawyering to win. God bless you, Sydney Powell

I still subscribe to Reason, but find each issue about half disgusting or foolish and half informative. Guess that is part of being Libertarian. At least is isn’t ninety percent disgusting, like National Review, or 99% like NYT or CNN. I continue to believe Powell, her honesty and evidence.

I clicked on sixteen links embedded within the Reason article and do not see that Reason is in any way "gaslighting." They link directly to Powell's website, which is the opposite of writing one-sided hit piece. I see attacking Reason as a way to deflect for yet another Trump choice that turned out to be more of a liability than an asset, like the curious case of Fauci's tenure within the administration. Just below the Powell article are four other articles, each one highly critical of Biden's and other progressive governmental actions.

This case with Dominion is like the case of a wife who discovers her husband's car parked outside his girlfriend's house, he swears he wasn't there, then files a restraining order against his wife for stalking him.

National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director Anthony Fauci said federal health officials are considering recommending that fully vaccinated people wear masks in public again. “This is under active consideration,” Fauci told CNN in response to a question about whether masks should be used again despite individuals’ COVID-19 vaccination status. Fauci, who serves as President Joe Biden’s chief medical adviser, added, “If we don’t vaccinate people, the model is going to predict that we’re going to be in trouble as we continue to get more and more cases.”

Nancy Pelosi used to point her angry finger at Donald Trump, but she leaves him for dust when it comes to busting norms, dividing Congress and causing mayhem. If anyone is to blame for the hyper-partisanship in Washington these days, it’s the spiteful House speaker. She behaves more like a Mafia don waging a gang war than a dignified, fair and honest presiding officer, which is what the speaker’s role requires. Pelosi abuses her power in ways that once were unthinkable. Her speakership has been the antithesis of Lincoln’s entreaty to “the better angels of our nature.”

A California man who mocked COVID-19 vaccines has died after becoming infected with the virus. Stephen Harmon, 34, died on Wednesday at Corona Regional Medical Center, about an hour east of Los Angeles. Prior to his hospitalization, Harmon shared a series of jokes on social media about vaccines. “I got 99 problems but a vax ain’t one,” he wrote in June on Twitter. In another tweet the same month, he made fun of the Biden administration’s outreach efforts to push vaccines. “Biden’s door to door vaccine ‘surveyors’ really should be called JaCovid Witnesses. #keepmovingdork,” he wrote.

Jill Biden is at the Tokyo Olympics. Joe Biden is not. He’s stumping with the Democrat candidate for governor in Virginia and joking (kinda) that the Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga “made it real clear” that he wanted Jill Biden, not him, in Tokyo. Joe thinks this kind of banter makes him look humble. Whatever. This is her first solo overseas trip since moving into the White House.

A lifelong baseball fan, I abandoned the game this year after MLB sided with the Democratic Party in its campaign against ballot integrity in Georgia. It wasn’t just that: my home town team has put a “Black Lives Matter” sign and a memorial to George Floyd in right field. If I can’t escape politics at a baseball game, I’d rather go somewhere else. For the first time in decades, I haven’t seen a major league baseball game this year. Not only that, I haven’t watched or listened to a single pitch on radio or television. Then there is football. Commissioner Roger Goodell is driving the sport in a “woke” direction.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, chief medical advisor to the Biden administration, has defended the National Institute of Health's decision to give $600,000 to the Wuhan Institute of Virology in 2014 for research into whether bat coronaviruses could be transmitted to humans.In Sunday's episode of CNN's 'State of the Union,' Fauci, the director of the NIH's Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, told host Jake Tapper that it would be 'negligent' not to fund the research - though some have argued it could have led to the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic in 2019. Fauci and Kentucky Republican Senator Rand Paul feuded over the subject last week, when Paul questioned Fauci

The man then made a quick motion to put the gun into an imaginary holster under his shoulder when the gun went off and a bullet struck his torso, the outlet reported. “I don’t know if he was pretending to be a badass or something,”

Masks are also "strongly encouraged" for groups when outdoors. We’ve lost more than 500 St. Louisans to COVID-19, and if our region doesn’t work together to protect one another, we could see spikes that overwhelm our hospital and public health systems," Dr. Fredrick Echols, acting director of health for the City of St. Louis, said Friday.
