But, but she was a member of an "elite strike force team (snicker)" according to Jenna Ellis. What could be more powerful than that? It's like the Avengers or something. Now she's just a rando whack-job, squawking wildly on whatever lunatic conspiracy outlet that will still have her, or promoted by whatever clueless credule who still buys what she's selling, or whatever troll that still isn't bored by her.

Pretending it is over is ill advised, looks dumb, and it wont stop Sidney Powell.

She is diligently working to get her evidence to court. She wants to make sure it was a fair clean election and expose any significant fraud found.

Truth is that she might get to court, she might not. Time will tell.

simple question, the only relevant question:

who is going to pay Powell for her work?

It's over; no one cares what fevered fantasies Powell has to sell, not even Trump. The only people who look dumb are, well . . .

Two scenarios:

1. Trump's temper tantrum is permanentized; he and his legal team continue to insist for the rest of their lives that the election results were fraudulent.

2. Trump's legal team issues a statement along the lines of "We only wanted to make sure the results were fair and accurate and we are now satisfied, this is the system working as intended no hard feelings" and Trump is left to insinuate for the rest of his life that he was robbed but in ways that his proxies and spokespersons can handwave as joking or ironic when called out for it.
I predict statements indicating both.

What's stopping her? They're at the point of "Scotty... now would be a good time."

I am trying to figure out how she is more powerful now that she is no longer working with the President of the United States and leader of the largest cult in the world, but I'm not coming up with an answer.

Concocting wild conspiracy theories at press conferences so crazy that even the right wing media thinks she's so incompetent that Trump fired her publicly for said incompetence was a smart strategy. That's a lot to unpack to be honest.

Like if you believe there's more evidence coming, then you know you're asking me to believe she could have just released the evidence and revealed the whole thing weeks ago but instead chose to look like an idiot?

You failed to ask whether or not she needs money, and whether or not wants to be paid for trying to save the nation from election thieves.

No, she just wants Trump to be president, and will gleefully invent whatever explanation she needs to support that head-canon, regardless of the actual election result.

But it is ultimately meaningless, and Sydney Powell doesn't need to be "stopped" because she doesn't matter. Trump's own legal team was laughed out of court in Pennsylvania, and Biden has won so many times in Michigan by this point he may as well change his name to Ohio State.

It's over.

If she wants to protect the nation from election thieves, she need look no further than her former "elite strike force team (snicker)" and the mirror.

The transition is started; the cabinet building has begun. It. Is. Over.

For the sake of argument, let's assume that's what she thinks she is doing.


In that case, I would compare her to Don Quixote, who didn't feel the need to be paid for slaying dragons, but the windmill owners really wanted him to stop.

I have part ownership of the windmill that is American democracy, and she is doing damage to it, even if her intentions are exactly the opposite.

Mod WarningThe latest conspiracy theory stuff in regards to Powell have been merged into the ongoing thread in the conspiracy section. http://www.internationalskeptics.com...d.php?t=347781

If Powell actually files anything in a court in relationship to overturning the 2020 GE or electoral fraud I’ll allow the topic back into the USA Politics section.

Until that happens keep her stuff to the Conspiracy Theory section of the forum.
