Mike Lindell says he has ‘enough evidence’ to put ‘300 million’ Americans in jail for election fraud

Real America’s Voice/screen grab

MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell argued this week that “300 million” Americans belong in jail for election fraud.

Lindell’s remarks on Real America’s Voice were first reported by Right Wing Watch.

“Everything you’re going to see over these next seven months to get rid of the [voting] machines,” he said. “You’re going to see the Supreme Court case coming out. All these great things, everybody.”

Lindell insisted that he has the “pieces of the puzzle” to prove the 2020 presidential election was stolen from Donald Trump.

“And you talk about evidence,” Lindell added. “We have enough evidence to put everybody in prison for life, 300 and some million people. We have that all the way back to November and December.”

Despite his claim, Lindell did not reveal evidence that could put all Americans in jail.

Trump’s unhinged statement suggests Georgia prosecutors may be close to indicting him


Democrats gave Republicans a taste of their own medicine during a judicial confirmation hearing on Wednesday.

Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Dick Durbin held the hearing for Andre Mathis, a nominee by President Joe Biden for an appeals court seat that has historically been designated for a candidate from Tennessee, over the objection of the state’s two GOP senators, reported Roll Call.

A long-standing committee tradition known as “blue slips” traditionally given home-state senators more influence over the nomination, but Republicans used that to block some of Barack Obama’s nominees if senators didn’t return the actual slips of paper — and then ended the practice during Donald Trump’s presidency.

“We are about to enter a four-year — I don’t want to characterize or mischaracterize the situation — four years of trying to balance the books,” Durbin said.

Durbin pointed out that Republicans moved 18 nominees through the process and eventually confirmed 17 of them, and said the committee should look into codifying the practice into the rules after the next election.

“Perhaps we can agree that prospectively after the 2024 presidential election, there will be a rule,” Durbin said. “We don’t know who’s going to win that at this point, and we might have a standard moving forward from there.”

Sen. Marsha Blackburn, one of Tennessee’s two senators, along with fellow Republican Bill Hagerty, complained about the maneuver being used against the GOP.

“I do recognize the president’s constitutional prerogative to nominate individuals of his choosing to serve on the federal judiciary, but we in this Senate have a crucial constitutional role to play as well,” Blackburn said. “The White House communicated with my office a total of two times on this nomination.”

The Republican governor of South Dakota was blasted for “endangering all of us” with her State of the State address.

Daily Beast special correspondent Michael Daly noted Gov. Kristi Noem pushed religious exemptions from coronavirus vaccines and said, “we will also recognize natural immunity.”

“The majority of the state legislators applauded, indicating they are not only Republicans but also foolish enough to endorse her fiction that people who have had COVID-19 do not need to be vaccinated,” Daly wrote.

Daly interviewed Yale School of Public Health bioinformatician Jeffrey Townsend, the author of an October study published by The Lancet Microbe titled, “The durability of immunity against reinfection by SARS-CoV-2: a comparative evolutionary study.”

“Contracting COVID once does not make you immune over the long term and certainly does not make you immune to new variants,” Townsend said. “The issue with that declaration is that there’s going to be many people who are not going to be protected against new infections, whether or not they’re new variants. Having such a declaration is not properly understanding the dynamics in this pandemic.”

“And the possibility of that variant increases with people getting infected more,” he explained. “The more people there are, the more different variants form and some of them, some very small fraction of them, are going to become new variants that are immunoevasive.”

Daly said Noem’s coronavirus stances are designed to find her a place on the 2024 GOP ticket.

He wrote that “Noem is not just wrong but reprehensibly reckless” and “when Noem suggests that having had COVID makes the vaccine unnecessary, she is in truth encouraging hesitant folks not to get the jab. And her resistance to a mandate is part of an image she is constructing of a cowboy-hatted, horse-riding, flag-waving champion of freedom who has led South Dakota to economic triumph amid the pandemic.”

Daly noted South Dakota ranked 45th in GDP according to the Board of Economic Analysis of the U.S. Department of Commerce.

One of the oldest known Homo sapiens fossils may be more than 35,000 years older than previously thought, according to a study on Wednesday that used volcanic ash to date the find.

Kibish Omo I, first unearthed in Ethiopia in 1967, contained only bone and skull fragments which were difficult to date directly and experts long remained divided over their age.

Geologists in 2005 analysed the layer of rock just underneath the find and determined Omo I was at least 195,000 years old.

That made the Homo sapiens fossil at least that old — and the oldest ever discovered at the time.

“But there was still a lot of uncertainty,” Celine Vidal, the main author of the study published in leading scientific journal Nature, told AFP.

Vidal, a volcano expert at the University of Cambridge, said getting a more precise date meant analysing the thick layer of ash deposited above the fossils.

“At the time that was nearly impossible since the ash was so fine, almost like flour,” she said.

But thanks to more refined methods available today Vidal’s team was able to link that layer of ash to a major eruption of a volcano named Shala.

According to the study, the ash revealed the layer where Omo I was found to be 233,000 years old, with a 22,000-year margin of error.

“This is a major jump in time,” said study co-author and paleoanthropologist Aurelien Mounier.

He added that the new minimum age for Omo I is more consistent with the most recent theories of human evolution.

It also brings it closer to the age given to what are today the oldest Homo sapiens remains, discovered in Morocco in 2017 and dated to 300,000 years ago.

The skulls and teeth unearthed in Jebel Irhoud torpedoed the long-held theory that we emerged from an East African “cradle of humankind”.

But for Mounier, the physical characteristics of the Moroccan fossils are a less convincing ancestor of today’s humans than Omo I.

The Jebel Irhoud fossils are described as having a modern face but a brain case that, though large, has a more archaic-looking shape.

“Omo I is the only fossil that has all the morphological characteristics of modern man,” said Mounier.
