Diana West: We Have a Defector from Communist Crimeworld

Sidney Powell, Lady Justice herself, went on the Lou Dobbs show on Monday night

(November 16, 2020) with, I think, a mission. No matter what questions Lou Dobbs interposed, she was going to read to the American people as much as possible of an affidavit she had secured as a member of the Trump legal team about computerized election fraud. The media won't report on it, as we well know, and the information must get out to the American people somehow. To assist in that end, I am posting the transcript of Powell's interview below.

The affidavit, which, as Powell tells Dobbs, she just received, comes from a highly placed defector attesting to the crime of the century, the attempted theft by international communists of the 2020 presidency of the United States from the American people.

Let me hasten to add that Powell did not frame the affidavit or its source in the terms I have chosen. She describes the source as "a first-hand witness, a highly ranking military officer," who attested to being present when Smartmatic software was designed to change election results. This was part of an assault on free elections, Powell later notes, funded by international communists. "It's all Venezuelan and Cuban and essentially communist money that's been doing this," Powell says; "this," just to underscore, being changing election results for the communists' preferred candidates.

Given where I have been in a decade of research, I just can't regard this officer, whether he is himself a communist, as anything but a defector from the Inner Circle, someone who saw what they -- communist Cubans, Venezuelans, Chinese, Europeans, and American traitors -- have been doing to overturn our government via electronic election fraud. Assuming he checks out as the real McCoy, this is a big, big deal.

Earlier yesterday, Powell also appeared on the Rush Limbaugh Show. I'm not sure, of course, but I don't think she had the affidavit yet; however, she was rather more emphatic about the communist angle with guest-host Mark Steyn. Powell set the stage for her radio discussion this way: "We have Venezuelan communists influenced by Cuban communists counting our votes, and deciding how our election is going to come out. It's an absolute outrage, and it should be being investigated by the highest of our intel investigators, preferably military, because it's a national security threat...Oh, and don't forget China's influence in all of it, too. ... Chinese money and graft in Venezuela."

May I just put in good word here for the Kremlin?

It beggars imagination and goes against every single minute of a century of subversion history to imagine that Cuba and Venezuela were not also, let's say, assisted in key ways by Russia. To be sure, the pro-Trump Right has been trained, Pavlov's-dog-style, to scoff at "Russia, Russia Russia," but this has always struck me as evidence of more fabulous Lubyanka tradecraft: the trick of making your real enemy, the fighting American Right, believe you do not exist by not being where that fighting American Right has been misdirected to look.

More than Cold War history that points to Russia's involvement in The Big Steal of 2020. Venezuela rates as what used to be called in the old Soviet day a Moscow "client state." Articles abound describing the tight political, military and economic ties between Putin and Chavez, Putin and Maduro, which convey Moscow's use of Caracas as a close ally against the USA in the Americas. Here's a 2020 report on Russia's global influence that makes the Russia-Venezuela client relationship clear:

Nonetheless, Russia’s relationship with Venezuela is the most prominent, and antagonizing, for the West. Russia has long supported the regime of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro and has been seen as a key power propping up the socialist government, helping to ward off a U.S-supported coup led by opposition leader Juan Guaido in 2019.

That would be "helping" by sending troops into the country, where there is already a Russian military and military production presence.

Russia has also supported Venezuela on the military and economic front; Caracas is believed to have bought billions of dollars’ worth of weapons from Russia, paid for with loans from Russia, whose state oil company Rosneft has also invested heavily in Venezuela’s state oil company, Petróleos de Venezuela, or PDVSA.

The classic client state dynamic is perfectly embodied in Maduro choosing to award Putin the first Hugo Chavez Prize. The prize itself is a tiny replica of a large statue of Chavez, which was commissioned and presented to Venezuela by Rosneft, the Russian state oil entity, at Putin's request.

All of which helps explain why when Sidney Powell says there are Venezuelans counting votes, I think there are Russians counting Venezuelans.

Continuing his interview, Mark Steyn moves on to the added involvement of Spanish and German counting centers, which, according to Powell, are controlled by Venezuelan money as well.

The scale of the US election fraud is not just international, of course. Powell adds: "I've been told there are special concerns about the governor of Georgia and the secretary of state having received some kind of personal benefit for rushing the purchase of the Dominion machines into the state."

Egad. A conspiracy so immense ...

One final Powell quotation from the radio show on the topic of whether weak link Chief Justice Roberts will deem the president's case insufficient for the Supreme Court to hear.

"If that isn't big enough for him to take the case," Powell said, "he should be impeached."

Lord love this woman.

Now for the promised transcript of Sidney Powell's latest revelations to America via Lou Dobbs.

LOU DOBBS: Sidney, good to have you with us. Dominion Voting System seems to be figuring larger and larger in the interest of your your legal team and what is the latest?
SIDNEY POWELL: Oh definitely, Lou, I've just gotten some stunning evidence from a first-hand witness, a high-ranking military officer, who was present when Smartmatic was designed in a way -- and I'm going to just read you some of these statements, if you don't mind, so I get them exactly right, from from the affidavit -- designed in a way that the system could change the vote of each voter without being detected. He wanted the software itself to function in such a manner that if the voter were to place their thumbprint or fingerprint on a scanner, then the thumbprint would be tied to a record of the voter's name and identity of as having voted, but that voter would not be tracked to the changed vote. He made it clear that the system would have to be set up but not leave any evidence of the changed vote for a specific voter, and that there would be no evidence to show and nothing to contradict that the name or the fingerprint or thumb print was going with a changed vote.
Smartmatic agreed to create such a system and produce the software and hardware that accomplished the result for President Chavez. After the Smartmatic electoral management system was put in place, he closely observed several elections where the results were manipulated using the Smartmatic software.
One such election was December 2006 when Chavez was running against Rosales. Chavez won with a landslide over Rosales, a margin of nearly 6 million votes for Chavez versus 3.7 million for Rosales. In 2013, he witnessed another Venezuelan national election where the Smartmatic management system was used to manipulate and change the results for Chavez, and it goes on and on.
He was in the control room where multiple digital display screens were shown for results in voting. The actual voting results were fed into that room and onto the displays over an internet feed which was connected to a sophisticated computer system created by Smartmatic. People in that room were able to see in real time whether the vote that came through the electronic voting system was in their favor or against them. If one looked at any particular screen that could determine that the vote from any specific area or as a national total was going to be against either candidate, persons controlling the vote tabulation computer had the ability to change the reporting of votes by moving votes from one candidate to another by using the Smartmatic software -- "
DOBBS: Yes, and Smartmatic -- the chairman is Admiral Pete Neffinger, who is also on the vice president's transition team, his presidential presumptuous presidential transition team. That's an extraordinary situation as well, isn't it?
POWELL: Yes, it is. So, here's the other kicker. ... When somebody's losing -- like, for example, when Maduro and his supporters realized the size of the other guy's lead? They were worried, that they were in crisis mode and would lose the election? The Smartmatics machines used for voting in each state were connected to the internet, reported their information over the internet to the Caracas control center, real time, says the decision was made to reset the entire system. Maduro's and his supporters ordered the network controllers to take the internet itself offline and practically all parts in Venezuela to change the results.
It took the voting operators approximately two hours to make the adjustments in the vote from Radonski to Maduro. Then when they turned the internet back on and the online reporting was up and running again, they checked each screen, state by state, to be certain they could see each vote was changed in favor of Maduro.
DOBBS: You tweeted earlier today about CIA and its association. What have you discovered there?
POWELL: ... There's no way all this was happening around the world without the CIA knowing about it, I mean, that's just logic. This affidavit also explains it's been used to change election results all over the world, and it's all Venezuelan and Cuban and essentially communist money that's been doing this.
It's a foreign-owned company as you mentioned earlier. The president of it is Mr. Neffinger, who is on Biden's very presumptuous and immediately failing transition team, and people have been reporting this to our government for several years, including Democrats, and nobody's done a damn thing about it, Lou, I can't even express how furious i am over this.
DOBBS: Well, I share your your fury and frustration, but i do have some news to break here. At this moment i have now received word from a highly reliable source that the FBI does have an investigative team that is now looking into this election...

Frankly, I hope the FBI keeps its dirty mitts off of this because experience tells us the FBI is working for the Swamp, not the People. Dobbs, however, goes on to highlight federal election crimes that appear to have been committed, and to ask Sidney for her "thoughts" on FBI involvement.

Sidney just continues talking about the affidavit's revelations.

POWELL: Well, my other thought is that as soon as the Smartmatic system changed the votes that they wanted for their desired candidate, by the time they finish they achieve a convincing but narrow victory of the certain number of votes they want for their candidate. This person saw by what his own experience exactly what was happening there was happening here.
DOBBS: It's a deeply deeply troubling troubling election, as I said earlier, the worst in this country's history bar none, and we have seen official investigative and Justice Department officials slow to move, and it is infuriating to everyone --
POWELL (breaks in, fury in her voice): No, we have seen willfull blindness. They have adopted a position of willful blindness to this massive corruption across the country, and the Smartmatic software is in the DNA of every vote tabulating company software and systems.
DOBBS (warms to her fire): Yes, and it is more than just a willful blindness. This is people trying to blind us to what is going on. We don't even know who the hell really owns uh these companies, at least most of them. That's got to change and we've got to find out exactly what's going on and thank god we've got a president who will stay in the fight all the way through until we get those answers. Sidney Powell, thanks so much. We appreciate it as always.

Boy, do we appreciate it. Don't know what we'd do without her.

Looks like the American people have bought themselves the most exceptionally corrupt deep state government that tax dollars can buy.
