And done for the day - fixing dinner

Some big news and once again, President Trump is playing 5-dimensional chess.
From Busted Knuckles:

BREAKING NEWS, Trump Has Pardoned General Mike Flynn
He was the very first one The Deep State via the outgoing Obama administration went after with bogus charges to shut him up and shut him out of Trump’s administration.

This guy knows where the bodies are buried, has been under a gag order for years, has had a judge refuse to drop the charges even though the U.S. Attorney General recommended it and is now free to start putting the ass on the dirty motherfuckers who did him wrong.

Make no mistake, this is big.

And now things are going to get really interesting.  There is also this unverified rumor at Vox Day:

If it is another /pol/ LARP
We will probably know tomorrow. That being said, I found it interesting that the poster referred to something that most non-lawyers get completely wrong, which is the one thing that makes this post on /pol/ potentially credible. See if there is anything that sticks out to you as unlikely, and then I'll explain what I noticed.

I am an insider with the Biden campaign team and have been tasked with lurking here over the past month or so trying to monitor and report on what information is being discovered and passed around on the web. Pol seems to get news on the election and fraud claims faster than any other outlet the campaign team is familiar with.

Anyway, I wanted to drop some slightly early news on you. Late this evening, the campaign received an advance copy of Sidney Powell’s lawsuit that she plans on filing tomorrow in Georgia.

I’ll just say this - a lot of people in the building lost their shit after seeing it. Not only does it make a metric ton of bombshell accusations, she appears to the goods to back up many of her claims. I have some experience with lawsuits, and I don’t recall ever seeing one with this many exhibits.

I won’t claim to be “in the know,” with respect to what fraud actually occurred or what level was approved or authorized by the big wigs at the top, but I will say that the mood around here has taken a serious turn. Earlier this evening, everyone was basically still in party mode, especially following the GSA decision yesterday to release the transition funds (champagne!). Since receiving the suit this evening, no one has heard from either Joe or Kamala and everyone is acting like it’s really, really bad.

I don’t want to say too much, except that the suit alleges some really, really bad things in the form of what amounts to basically bribes and pay-to-play schemes and implicates high level DNC operatives and GOP members in Georgia. There is some really meaningful witness testimony, including a couple of whistle blowers (DNC ops that worked on this campaign) that actually admit to being complicit with vote switching and ballot stuffing.

The element on which a number of uninformed /pol/ skeptics have focused is the "advance copy" of the lawsuit being provided to the other side. But in both arbitrations and lawsuits, it is required to provide the opposing counsel a copy of the filings at the same time you send it to the court. This can actually turn into a tactical game when deadlines are specified, since some lawyers intentionally wait to see the other side's filings before filing their own.

Since it usually takes 1-3 days for court filings to appear on the relevant court sites, it would not be uncommon for a non-lawyer to describe what is actually a copy of the filing as an "advance copy". If the post is not a LARP, what this probably means is that Sidney Powell has started the process of uploading what is a very large filing and will announce it tomorrow after it has finished.

Anyhow, we'll find out soon enough. I just thought that was an unusual non-mistake that the average LARPer would have been unlikely to make.

LARP = Live Action Roll Play = playing a game.  Some people get so involved in these that they confuse real life with their game.  Sometimes to disastrous and hilarious consequences.
