The election-nullification Powerpoint has a very telling detail... [View all]


As the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol riot continues its work, reports suggest it is closely scrutinizing a PowerPoint document filled with conspiracy theories and several plans to overturn the 2020 election results.

The 38-page file turned over by former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows was titled "Election Fraud, Foreign Interference & Options for 6 JAN" and was circulating "on the hill" in the days prior to Jan. 6, according to a letter Rep. Bennie Thompson, the select committee's chairman, sent to Meadows' attorney earlier this week.

I've read through the presentation. It's basically a condensed version of all the conspiracy-theories you have heard how the Democrats stole the election via China hacking into venezuelan servers in Germany or something like that.


If you look at the style and format of the presenation, you will find an interesting glimpse into the mind of the person who made the presentation.
It's 36 pages long, but there's only 6 footnotes.

Footnotes are important in a presentation:
* In academia, footnotes show who gets credit for which work.
* In industry, footnotes show who is responsible for what.
* Anything without a footnote is by implication either a) original content by the author or b) common knowledge that can be found in so many sources it's literally impossible to list them all.

6 footnotes in 36 pages. That means that whoever made that presentation was NOT worried about being challenged about the accuracy of the information.
This was not a presentation to serve as a starting-point for a discussion and conclusion.
Instead, this presentation was a post-hoc justification for a conclusion that had already been made.

They had already decided to not accept the election-result BEFORE they came up with the China-Venezuela-Germany-server-thingy as to WHY the result shouldn't count.
