Tech Expert Shreds Mike Lindell's Election Data As Complete 'Gibberish' - Farron Balance

The tech expert that recently prevailed in a lawsuit against MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell has opened up about his process of proving Lindell wrong. In a recent interview, the expert said that he went through multiple steps to sort through Lindell's data, and when he had completed his task, he determined that none of it made any sense. In fact, he described the lines of code as nothing but "gibberish," which could suggest that it was all completely fabricated. Farron Cousins discusses this new revelation.

The tech expert who recently successfully took Mike Lindell to court and got a $5 million ruling against him, uh, has written an op-ed in Politico where he actually described the process he used to prove all of Mike Lindell's election fraud claims to be completely false. And here's what happened as the man, man by the name of Bob, Bob Zeidman, who by the way admits in the op-ed, he voted for Trump twice. And the reason he actually took up this offer was not necessarily to prove Mike Lindell wrong and get $5 million. It wa I think $5 million is the sum. I may be wrong about that. I think it's 5 million. But anyway, he did it because he thought, Hey, maybe, maybe Lindell's, right? Maybe Trump did win and if I can prove that through this information by God, I'm gonna do it. So he explains exactly what happened.

There's about 40 to 50 individuals, including Zieman himself, who showed up, uh, at that cyber symposium to take Mike Lindell up on his offer to go through the data and try to prove him wrong. Uh, so he signed up, he did all the things, you know, signed the, you know, yes, I'm participating. He got the packet, uh, uh, was it a 28 gigabit 23 gigabyte packet? Which let's be honest that that's not that big, right? Uh, typically my video files on a given day are much bigger than that. So we're not dealing with a ton of data here from Mike Lindell. So he goes through the process, he's written programs in the past to go through, you know, binary data. Uh, A A S C I I data, I believe that's how you say it. Um, not a computer whiz like that. So I don't know if I'm pronouncing that correctly.

But anyway, so he starts his programs going through the data to decipher it and turn the, you know, code into actual language and words so that he can understand it and vice versa. He's running the programs that are turning, you know, the weird symbols and all that into code. So he can read that. And after he goes through and he converts everything into the form, that allows an individual to actually read it, including a file called Chinese underscore source IP underscore hex dot txt. So, okay, oh my god, here's the China file, right? This is where China got in there. He says, after he did all that and was able to finally read the data, he actually couldn't read the data because it wasn't actually data, it was gibberish. That's what he said. He said, uh, with no other information, they were about as meaningful as a list of random words. At that point, it was obvious that the data in these text files were not anything related to the 2020 election. That's when I knew I had stumbled onto the key, not the key to showing election fraud, but the key to showing lindell's nonsense. I repeated the same process on the other, uh, text files and found even stranger stuff. These files were also obfuscated word processor documents,

But contained thousands of lines of gibberish. Nothing more than random characters and numbers. So if what Zeidman is saying is correct, and the court already said it is correct, by the way, then this could indicate that lindell's people, because I don't think Lindell did it personally, may have literally just made it up. Like they opened their text files and just start hacking away at a keyboard, just random letters, numbers, blah, blah. Here you go, here's code. Figure it out. Oh, you can't figure it out because you can't make sense of it. But this guy was actually able to make sense of it, to prove that it was in fact gibberish. So this throws a whole new wrench into Mike Lindell's future. Cuz let's not forget that man is still facing a 1.3 billion lawsuit from Dominion, another one from Smart Matic. And the data he says, came from those machines that we gotta meltdown to make into prison bars has been proven to be complete gibberish. Your people likely made this up. That's what we're dealing with here. And if that's the case, then that pillow empire, possibly the pillow company itself, because he doesn't have the money to, you know, pay out a 1.3 billion verdict, Mike, it's all gonna be gone in the very near future.

Republican Donors Say DeSantis' Presidential Campaign Is Dead On Arrival - Ring of Fire

Ron DeSantis has been pitching himself to donors as the only electable Republican, especially when compared to Trump. But in recent interviews, not only have certain factions of the Republican Party already turned away from DeSantis, but apparently big money Republican donors are also abandoning ship. One donor went as far as to tell Rolling Stone that DeSantis has no chance at winning because "no one is afraid of him." That's a big problem for Ron, as Ring of Fire's Farron Cousins explains.

Ron DeSantis is having a really bad time so far this year. His book tour has been a disaster. He was met by pro-Trump people who tried to disrupt his events as frequently as possible. He did his overseas trip. He was caught on camera with that weird laugh. And then of course, the picking his nose and wiping it on, uh, people who support him. And then of course, his poll numbers are in the toilet compared to where they were just six short months ago. Donald Trump has beaten him up every day, and now you've got other Republican candidates entering the race. People like Tim Scott this past week, and according to Republican donors and of course Republican strategists, it's because nobody is afraid of Ron DeSantis anymore. The five months that we have had so far this year have changed things dramatically, not just for Ron DeSantis presidential bid, but possibly his entire career trajectory, because they have shown that he does not play on a national level.

Yes, he's doing great in far right, Florida. Yeah, he won last year's election by one and a half million votes. The the wind was at his back, the sky was the limit. And then he said, well, I'm gonna venture outside of Florida's borders. And that's when everything went to hell for him. But as I said recently, donors, uh, Republican strategists, they actually spoke to Rolling Stone, and here is what they had to say. According to seven g o p operatives and pollsters supporting 2024 contenders other than Trump or DeSantis the other contenders, now believe DeSantis is in their estimations, a paper tiger whose less than stellar performance in his shadow campaign has convinced them he can be torn down as the only non-Trump alternative. And that belief, the operative say, has only grown in recent weeks as DeSantis poll numbers have wavered. One G O P donor put his opinion on DeSantis bluntly in conversation with Rolling Stone, and he simply said, quote, no one is afraid of him.

No one is afraid of Ron DeSantis. He's a paper tiger, which means all of this big bravado that he walks around with, it's all fake. It doesn't actually exist much like Donald Trump, by the way, worth pointing that out. Also, maybe it's worth pointing out that I've been pointing that out for the last two years, but either way, here we are. Everybody sees it now. Everybody in this country sees what Ron DeSantis is all about. He's all about culture, war, stupid talk. He is a bully. He is a coward. He cannot actually talk about real issues. He's getting his kicked by Mickey Mouse down here in Florida to the point where even the rest of the Republicans down here are like, dude, just let it go because they're making you look like a fool. And like, no, I'm gonna keep doing it.

27 May: All Weapons Unleashed: Ukrainians Conduct An Extensive Strike - Reporting from Ukraine

Day 458: May 27

Ukrainians increased the frequency and intensity of precision strikes on the Russian bases in the Zaporizhia region. If previously, Ukrainians conducted around 10 strikes per week, then now they are conducting 10 strikes per day.

The most destructive strikes happened in Mariupol. Today local residents reported hearing multiple explosions near the airfield. The footage indicates activation of the Russian air defense and, according to the unconfirmed reports, Russians shot down 1 out of 4 missiles.

This is the second consecutive day of strikes because yesterday, Ukrainians struck Mariupol with 2 Strom Shadow missiles. The targets of the strike were 2 facilities on the territory of the Azovstal industrial complex: one facility was used for the residence of hundreds of troops, while another one was used as a warehouse for equipment. Today more information became available as some Russian sources expressed their discontent and critique of the Russian command for failure to adjust to the new realities of war while mentioning that 250 special operators and marines died in the aftermath of yesterday’s strike. It was also mentioned that a week ago, Ukrainians destroyed more than 200 troops in a similar strike on the facilities near the airfield, so a bit higher that the initial Ukrainian estimates of 150 troops.

The fact that just in these 2 consecutive strikes, Ukrainians managed to eliminate almost 500 troops made many Russian analysts convinced that a lot of local residents had been actively spying for an extended period of time, which is why more counter-spying measures should be implemented as soon as possible.

Another powerful Strom Shadow strike happened in Berdyansk. The explosion was seen from villages located more than 10 km away from the shore. Some sources reported that the target of the strike became the recreational center Himiki, and other sources suggested that the target of the attack was the Azovkabel factory, however, both versions agree that Ukrainians were aiming at the areas of forces concentrations.

Ukrainians are also still actively using HIMARS. Over the last several days, Ukrainian conducted at least 3 HIMARS strikes on the Russian military objects in and around Donetsk. The target of the most recent strike became a former institute that Russians were using for military purposes. The target of the second strike became the twin towers or, more precisely, anti-tank-guided missile systems, electronic warfare systems, and reconnaissance systems that were conveniently placed on the roof of these high-rise buildings. The target of the third strike became an ammunition depot for the Russian air defense systems near Mospyne.

Other sources also reported that Ukrainian artillery crews are also striking the towns and cities closer to the contact line. Some Ukrainian fighters stated that today HIMARS rockets also hit Russian objects in Nikoske, Melitopol, and Tokmak.

Ukrainians are conducting smaller strikes outside the borders of Ukraine. Since Ukrainians agreed not to use HIMARS and Strom Shadows to hit Russian territories, for these purposes, Ukrainians are using various types of kamikaze drones.

Overall, it is clear that, right now, Ukrainians are focused on the areas of enemy forces concentrations, and at the moment, their primary targets are the headquarters of the most trained and prepared Russian forces, such as pilots, marines, and special operators. In parallel, Ukrainians are using their drones to hit distant critical supply line objects, in particular the ones that are related to fuel. Even though the drones do not have the same success rate as Storm Shadow missiles, since drones are cheap and can be launched frequently, Ukrainians managed to destroy up to 20 fuel-related facilities just over the last month. The continuation of this campaign ensures that Russians will accumulate a plethora of problems with manpower and supplies, especially in the southern direction, where their supply lines and military objects are extremely vulnerable.

Vietnam demands Chinese survey ship leave its exclusive economic zone - CNA

There has been a territorial flare-up in the disputed waters of the South China Sea. China and Vietnam have traded barbs over a Chinese research ship and five escort vessels in what experts have called the most significant incursion in four years. The Xiang Yang Hong 10 began operating in Vietnam's exclusive economic zone on May 7. Hanoi's protest came after Beijing announced its installation of at least three new light buoys in the waters near the Spratly Islands. Vietnam has accused the ships of violating its sovereignty, and demanded they leave its territorial waters.
