            On December 12, 2000, the Supreme Court ended a Florida vote recount in the presidential election contest between George W. Bush and Al Gore.

            The Court’s decision remains debated today.

    My foggy recollection of a story:

    A would-be screenwriter got his big break when he was invited to a dinner party where a big-time producer would be. The writer waited till the producer was alone for a moment, then introduced himself.
    “Sir, I have an amazing idea for a film that I KNOW would be a blockbuster. Are you interested?”
    “Yes.”
    “Great! I’ll explain it.”
    “No.”
    “Excuse me?”
    The producer gave the screenwriter his business card.
    “Oh I see. We’re at a party. You want me to call you at the office.”
    “No. I want you to summarize the plot on the back of my business card and mail it to me. If I like it, I’ll call you.”
    “But sir! I can’t possibly fit the plot of a movie on the back of a business card!”
    “Then you don’t have a clear, compelling story to tell.”

    My point: this entire sordid saga can be summarized on one page. Let’s say 15 bullet points. Now picture presenting this Summary Page to your group of ten. Somebody says, “Damn! If this were true, we should storm the Capitol. But I don’t believe it.”
    You: “OK. Which of those 15 points is the MOST unbelievable to you?”
    Him: “Number 7.”
    So you hand him a sheet marked “Point 7” which has another 8 to 15 bullet points describing WITHOUT DETAIL the facts that support Point 7. He reads them and you say, “If those facts are true, are you OK with Point 7 now?”
    Him: “If true, yes.”
    You: “OK. What is the SECOND most unbelievable point on the Summary Page?”
    Him: “Number 4.”
    So you hand him a sheet marked “Point 4” which has another 8 to 15 bullet points describing WITHOUT DETAIL the facts that support Point 4. He reads them and …

    You get the picture. Rinse and repeat until everyone agrees that IF THE FACTS ARE THERE to support the Summary Page, then “Houston, we have a problem.”

    Supporting the single Point Pages that support the Summary Page are 15 fat, brown 9 x 12 envelopes with all of the documents, all of the details that Sundance has so meticulously captured and assembled for us.

    You: “It’s all true and all the evidence is in these 15 envelopes. Take them home. If you pore over everything, it will take hours. But it won’t take nearly as much time to realize that you and I have been given a great gift: IRREFUTABLE EVIDENCE that our country is being hijacked. When you are convinced that we the people are facing a deadly threat to the future of our beloved republic, you will know our elected reps and unelected bureaucrats MUST BE SUBJECTED to RELENTLESS DEMANDS that they do the right thing: Uphold the law, punish the guilty, excise the worst of the corruption and to DO IT NOW. Make them understand that we the law-abiding, we the tax-paying, are staging a revolt. It is their choice whether the revolt is peaceful and orderly or violent and ugly. But either way, it’s OUR TURN. The storm is coming. Their only shelter is to honor the oaths they swore.

    I suspect this is roughly what Sundance is going to give us. It would be a mountain of paper, so I’m hoping for a digital version on a thumb drive. The Summary Page could have hyperlinks to the Point Pages, which could be hyperlinked to the detail pages. Just keep reading and clicking until you see where your tax dollars and your kid’s future have gone. Then get up and get your pitchfork. And this could all be on a standalone website as well.

    I wrote this from asking myself what is the simplest, most effective way to transmit a huge amount of info to someone without overwhelming them? For me, the answer is the “inverted pyramid,” which in the old days was how they taught journalists to write a news story. Lead with the key points so the reader gets the big picture, leaving the supporting evidence toward the end so the dubious can convince themselves that your story is real. Thought I’d share it for whatever it’s worth.

    • Slow- LOVE your JRT photo. I had one that looked similar, best dog I ever had, also the craziest.
      As far as your ideas about sharing the information that Sundance has been providing, the problem I see is that most people today have the attention span of a flea thanks to screen addiction. And that includes many of us who are older, who learned to read early in life, who are avid readers but who now tend to get our information off of screens.
      I am politically active in my community and have even ran for office a few times. I can tell you that it’s even hard to get your supporters to go out and vote for you, the ones that voted for you in a primary for example.
      Aside from that- I have worked on various campaigns involving school budgets, multi-million dollar bond referendums, congressional races, you name it. Very tough to get out the message.

      The most difficult task we face in my estimation regarding the Sundance Papers is being able to convey the information to our family, friends and neighbors, especially if that info could potentially cause them to lose their Country and their way of life..

      I have been thinking along he same lines. The presentation has to be short, as so many people have no time for a deep dive. And if you can get them to spend five minutes, you may get them to spend 10 minutes, 20 minutes, 30 minutes, 1 hour…

      Just like you said; if they get to a certain point and need more info, provide another set of points that lead to a deeper understanding. Perfect for a website with multiple hyperlinks to navigate up and down as you learn. And of course for those who have the time, provide all the info.

      I thought I read somewhere here that Sundance was planning a series of video presentations, so maybe this is the plan already.

        “I thought I read somewhere here that Sundance was planning a series of video presentations, so maybe this is the plan already.”

        Sounds that way. Video presentation of this whole spygate saga can be presented in the same inverted pyramid style. It’s too much to throw out there in one long video. People’s eyes would glaze over, and they’d be quickly lost.

        Many popular Youtubers use this technique in their videos. They’ll provide a link to another video with details on a particular aspect of the topic, for further understanding or background. Works beautifully.

    • Sounds like a good possibility.

      Though, I would think that the bullet points, were in fact, actually crimes that have been committed, and the supporting documentation would be the people that committed the crimes, when, where, and how. Not only the crimes, but also the legal laws, code, statues that were broken.

      Next would be the punishments for such crimes.

      Yet, first and foremost, the irrefutable evidence of the crime being committed.

      So glad you posted this. The inverted pyramid style of writing is the most effective way to impart understanding of complicated sets of facts. Start with the basics, and let the reader go to the details when they’re able to absorb the info.

      I’ve been wishing for a set of fact-sheets with simple bullet points. Each bullet point would then have its own chapter or segment. Each of those may have additional breakdowns as needed.

      This could be done on a webpage by utilizing drop-downs or linking to a separate page for the further details. No paper necessary, and easy to share.

      I wish I could do this, but lack the full understanding of all these complex details. Sometimes, I feel like I’m still at the bullet point page, LOL!

      • I was just thinking that one sometimes sees a fact page, bulleted and in large print, eye-catching, but each bullet point has a “Dig Deeper” link.

        Each one of the deeper pages has a “Dig Even Deeper” and it is hard to argue with things that are already public knowledge (although what some of the public thinks it knows is merely the misguided belief in the MSM lies).

        The layered approach allows a person who really wants to learn to develop a foundational data base so they can absorb and accept the further information.

    This Legal Civil War is playing out perfectly.

    How?
    The coup/globalist are continuing to attack, using the most unimaginable coup/traitorous tactic that could ever be conceived as being possible, in a constitutional republic, making it clear how evil they are.

    P/T allowed the coup/globalist to reveal who they are and their plans to convert the U.S. into a 3rd world country.

    AND

    The continued formula used by the coup/globalist is the elimination of the rule of law (seen repeatedly by everyone) and the constitution to win this legal civil war.

    P/T weapon to destroy the coup/globalist is to implement the criminal codes/justice.

    More people are now just starting to understand that this constitutional republic will be changed over to a 3rd world country status without P/T 3-year plan for prosecutions.

    More people after 3-years are just starting to understand the importance of justice.

    More people after 3-years are just starting to Demand Justice.

    More people are just starting to understand that P/T is 100% responsible for justice.

    More people are just starting to understand P/T has the power to implement justice.

    More people are just starting to understand P/T has many paths to implement justice.

    More people are just starting to understand P/T has a duty to the constitution and the American people to implement justice.

    P/T will win the November Presidential election and will implement justice with or without Barr.

      Agreed…the formula (weapon) used by the coup and criminals is the elimination of the rule of law and the constitution. The only way for President Trump to win the legal civil war, is a counterattack, using the rule of law and the constitution.

      Common sense people should start to understand it is not alright to continue to say (1) justice is not important (2) it has always been this way (3) we must move on (4) justice fighters just do not understand and are incapable of understanding (5) we only need to MAGA (without justice and the rule of law MAGA will be reversed very easily).

      Why? You are helping the coup and globalist to win this war and convert the U.S. into a 3rd world county.

      President Trump needs the support of the American people to “Demand Justice” and the enforcement of the rule of law. Be positive and strong, not weak minded by making negative excuses. (PT is fighting for the American people).

      Demand Justice!

      President Trump will implement Justice.

      What is really interesting about this is that hydroxychloroquine + zinc looks like it is basically a highly effective treatment for both the common cold and flu (as well as wuhan ccp coronavirus).

      We, the people, should have been taking this combination for years and years, rather than flu vaccines.

      Since the government will ban HCQ, here I present once again, the prophylaxis for covid-19 from the Eastern Virginia Medical School (EVMS), because it may save people’s lives from covid, but maybe even more importantly, it may protect from flu and colds each flu season:

      “Prophylaxis
      While there is very limited data (and none specific for COVID-19), the following “cocktail” may
      have a role in the prevention/mitigation of COVID-19 disease.
      ■ Vitamin C 500 mg BID and Quercetin 250-500 mg BID
      ■ Zinc 75-100 mg/day
      ■ Melatonin (slow release): Begin with 0.3mg and increase as tolerated to 2 mg
      at night
      ■ Vitamin D3 1000-4000 u/day
      ■ Optional: Famotidine 20-40mg/day ”

        We had absentee only voting in the Ohio primary. You are correct. It is not the same as all mail in voting where they mail ballots to every address in the state without anyone needing to request one. I had to request the ballot and then fill it in and mail it back.

        However, I still prefer the in-person voting. I didn’t feel secure that our ballots made it in and were counted. I was concerned that if I made one little error in the process, it could be thrown out. I was not happy with DeWine not allowing in-person voting. So far, I have heard we will have the normal election process. But I just don’t feel I can rely on our Governor to stick with that plan. He is too flip-floppy.

          coastermom — I live in Ohio, too, and agree with your observations. I remember how crazy confusing it was during this year’s primary when in-person voting was on, and then off, and then on again. It became a political tug-of-war between the legislature, DeWine and Doctor Amy, and the Ohio Supreme Court, and all at the 11th hour. I still believe all that confusion lost us too many votes from people who just gave up trying to figure it out. We had a school levy that had been voted down earlier for good reason, with a lot of people against it, that somehow managed to slip through this time in all the chaos…

      You may also deliver your “vote by mail” ballot in person to a designated secure drop box. See the website or call your county election supervisor to find out locations and dates.

And unlike with Floyd, there will be no impetus for policy changes to rectify the epidemic of repeat criminal aliens who are allowed to remain in the country and victimize more Americans.

    Excerpt:

    Facebook and other social media platforms have cracked down on what they claim to be coronavirus misinformation, arguing that misinformation about the pandemic is dangerous. Yet Rabbi Vigler was not arguing against taking social distancing precautions or suggesting a miracle-cure drug — he was making a theological and spiritual point.

    “The ultimate cure for COVID-19 and all ailments and all diseases is for the Temple to be rebuilt and the coming of Messiah,” Vigler told PJ Media, explaining the point of his video. “When this happens all diseases will be cured and there will be world peace. How do we make this happen? By loving one another — unconditional love.”

    “This is not misinformation at all — it’s one of the basic beliefs of our holy Torah — and so Facebook was absolutely wrong to ban me even for a minute,” Vigler insisted.

    Here’s a crazy thought. Could there be a connection between Fentanyl and COVID?
    Respiratory depression
    The most dangerous adverse effect of fentanyl is respiratory depression, or the decreased ability to breathe. This risk is decreased when the airway is secured with an endotracheal tube.[47] This risk is higher in specific groups, like those with obstructive sleep apnea.[47]

    Other factors that increase the risk of respiratory depression are:[47]

    High fentanyl doses
    Sleep
    Older age
    Concomitant use of CNS depressants like benzodiazepines, barbiturates, alcohol, and inhaled anesthetics
    Hyperventilation
    Decreased CO2 levels in the serum
    Respiratory acidosis
    Decreased fentanyl clearance from the body
    Decreased blood flow to the liver
    Renal insufficiency
    Sustained release fentanyl preparations, such as patches, may also produce unexpected delayed respiratory depression.[48][49][50] The precise reason for sudden respiratory depression is unclear, but there are several hypotheses:

    Saturation of the body fat compartment in people with rapid and profound body fat loss (people with cancer, cardiac or infection-induced cachexia can lose 80% of their body fat).
    Early carbon dioxide retention causing cutaneous vasodilation (releasing more fentanyl), together with acidosis, which reduces protein binding of fentanyl, releasing yet more fentanyl.
    Reduced sedation, losing a useful early warning sign of opioid toxicity and resulting in levels closer to respiratory-depressant levels.
    Heart and blood vessels
    Bradycardia: Fentanyl decreases the heart rate by increasing vagal nerve tone in the brainstem, which increases the parasympathetic drive.[47]
    Vasodilation: It also vasodilates arterial and venous blood vessels through a central mechanism, by primarily slowing down vasomotor centers in the brainstem. To a lesser extent, it does this by directly affecting blood vessels.[47] This is much more profound in patients who have an already increased sympathetic drive, like patients who have high blood pressure or congestive heart failure.[47] It does not affect the contractility of the heart when regular doses are administered.[47]
    Muscle rigidity
    If high boluses of fentanyl are administered quickly, muscle rigidity of the vocal cords can make bag-mask ventilation very difficult.[47] The exact mechanism of this effect is unknown, but it can be prevented and treated using neuromuscular blockers.[47]

        60 GHz was specifically chosen for 5G because it resonates with oxygen (causing attenuation of the RF signal), and therefore doesn’t propagate very far. This minimizes interference between cell sites and limits the distance the signals can propagate in the atmosphere. This means that many more cell sites will be required to implement 5G.

        I am an electronic engineer/physicist. I didn’t realize that this was the case until today. This may be very significant, but I need to research the physics.

        This could very well be a health issue, but like I wrote, I need to study this. In particular, I need to understand the power levels/physical distance from humans that are being planned for 5G cell sites.

        If the sites are designed to allow high RF power levels close to humans, this could very well be a significant health issue.

        The more they attack me, a Trump supporter, the worse these auntie farts, sans black masks look like the racists they are!

        They are teachers.

        They are everywhere and they are trying to stop us from communicating.

        Tower of Babel!

        Democrats are embarrassed and calling each other out.

        Bernie supporters are yelling at other Dems that this is what you did.

        There is something much deeper, that if it comes out…..I’ll deal with it.

        Very embarrassing, but not for me!

        I’m the Jack Ass Jew this dude is dealing with and the other guy that agrees with me is a black Democrat!

        I can stand and wave a Trump flag, or I can out each and every Democrat as a Racist.

        I’ve picked the latter option, even though I do the the first as well!

        Does that make sense?

          I can’t do that by calling them names, but if I can be nice, forceful, truthful and get out Trumps message and simultaneously draw the nastiest Democrats into calling me nasty names.

          Its potentially creating ‘walk away’ Democrats.

    Vote for President Donald J. Trump who is a great Republican leader and will bring this country back to where it was before the China Virus was sent to us purposely by China to cripple America and President Trump, who they are afraid of, because President Trump is the only President that stood up to China. China is trying to destroy America and that is why China wants Joe Biden to win, because they know China has Joe Biden in their pocket. Vote for President Trump and keep the Far Left Democrats and Biden from destroying the USA.

    Watching Jonathan Turley’s testimony before Senate Judiciary Cmte. Chaired by Ted Cruz (doing good job so far).

    The Democrats from Portland are batshit crazy! Gaslighting galore! Calling rioters “peaceful protesters”. Decrying federal agents arresting “peaceful protestors”. Decrying use of federal agents to protect fed property and Portland residents. Excellent, live, in your face, display of Democrat’s stunning disconnect from reality, and their complete embrace of delusion and slight of hand in order to dismantle America’s foundation brick by brick, stone by stone.

    The distrust many Americans feel toward the news media, caught up like much of the nation’s problems in the partisan divide, only seems to be getting worse.

    That was the conclusion of a “sobering” study of attitudes toward the press conducted by Knight Foundation and Gallup and released Tuesday.

    The states cannot have voting rules….rules are from a different era…soon votes must be accepted on scraps of toilet tissue delivered “found” 10 years after the voting ends

    Federal Judge: I make the rules….

    A federal judge ordered election officials to count thousands of mail-in ballots throughout New York State that were declared invalid for not having a post-mark or arriving at offices shortly after the June 23 primary.

    In granting the preliminary injunction Monday, Manhattan Judge Analisa Torres said the plaintiffs who brought the suit — including congressional candidate Suraj Patel and Brooklyn Assembly candidate Emily Gallagher — had proved that voters were disenfranchised and denied their constitutional rights after being encouraged to vote by absentee ballot during the coronavirus pandemic.

    All kinds of questions with these two fighting over who sucks more.

    “…“I leave my post today with deep disappointment that during the most critical public health crisis in our lifetime, that the Health Department’s incomparable disease control expertise was not used to the degree it could have been,” Barbot wrote in her resignation email, a copy of which was shared to TheNYT.

    Her resignation comes more than two months after the Democratic mayor gave responsibility for the city’s virus contact tracing program to the public hospital system rather than the Health Department. Health officials argued at the time that the public hospital system does not have the capacity to marshal the kind of tools needed to carry out the effort, TheNYT reported in May.

    Barbot added: “Our experts are world renowned for their epidemiology, surveillance and response work. The city would be well served by having them at the strategic center of the response not in the background…”

    People are criticizing President Trump and even blaming him for the China Virus. This is by the FAKE NEWS Democrat Media, and Democrat Newspapers, like Washington Post and New York Times. This is such a LIE! President Trump did so much for the people of the USA, more than any President faced with the horrible China Virus. President Trump stopped China passengers and Europe people from coming into this country who had the virus and traveled anyway. This would have killed so many more USA Citizens if President Trump hadn’t stopped these people from coming into USA. He closed down our country reluctantly because Democrat Dr. Fauci told President Trump to close it down. President Trump listened to him even though our country was in the best shape it ever was, with everybody working and the stock market was the highest ever for 50 years. The economy was the greatest ever. Now LOSER Joe Biden has the nerve to say he would have done a better job? Give me a break. How would Joe have helped the people, from his basement??? Don’t listen to Joe Biden, the BIGGEST LIAR ever. All he wants is your vote and he will go back in his basement. Vote for President Donald J. Trump for 4 more years, so he can bring this country back to where it was before the China Virus, and with the help of scientists, find a cure for the virus.

    Posting this (from our email) at the behest of a Treeper who is having trouble posting….

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Dear Fellow Treepers:

    Sundance requested “Sherpas” / interpreters be available to help guide readers through his upcoming publication. Despite being a longstanding reader, I still cannot crisply walk anyone through what has happened. This is because: (a) it’s complicated, (b) the Deep State is comprised of professional obfuscators, and (c) understanding it requires lots of time.

    I recently wasted a tremendous amount of time trying to sell an innovative product to sophisticated investors. Until we greatly simplified our message, we got nowhere. By the time we learned our lesson; we ran out of time.

    I favor a multi-pronged approach to our Deep State challenge. I know there are less informed voters who can be flipped and others benefit from reassurance our VSG is on the right track. This is not the same audience Sundance is currently targeting. My target voters’ sense something is wrong but cannot quite grasp or articulate what. We need to complement Sundance’s granular writings with a simple, memorable explanation that easily reconciles with his efforts.

    Below is my first attempt, which I hope Treepers will help me improve.

    Six Easy Pieces

    1. The Deep State (corrupt politicians, bureaucrats, and government contractors) illegally used the government’s surveillance capabilities (NSA database) to spy on U.S. citizens including Donald Trump prior to the 2016 election and likely starting in 2012.

    2. Admiral Mike Rogers (Director, National Security Agency) noticed a high number of NSA database searches, understood the implications, and shut down contractor access on April 18, 2016.

    3. The Deep State recognized Rogers’ actions, together with earlier (March 9) NSA security alerts meant they could be exposed. They needed a cover story to retroactively provide legal justification for spying if Trump was elected.

    4. The Steele Dossier was resurrected, Deep State operatives were activated to surround the Trump campaign and a Russia collusion story created to justify the spying and cover up years of corruption.

    5. The prosecution of General Michael Flynn, the Mueller Special Counsel investigation into President Trump, “impeachment” and the constant attacks are among the Deep State’s efforts to stop President Trump and cover up the truth.

    6. Sadly, this is just the tip of the corruption iceberg, which is why everything is so vicious. The Deep State knows it has to stop President Trump from being reelected, or it will be exposed!

    My final comments:

    Sundance cannot, and should not be expected to, make every play.

    I know what I wrote can be improved.

    I am sorry this post is so long

    Thank you AdRem

      Using “Deep State” will shutdown the brain those uninformed. Let’s use a more accusatory term like “The Corrupt Government bureaucrats” so that every time we talk about these people, it is an indictment of their governmental duty to the American people.

        Minnesotamike, that thought went through my mind as well. And I think you’re on the right path. But to further lessen the recoil from those listening I wouldn’t even put “corrupt’ in there. Disarm them by making it sound like some disgruntled employees with seniority felt like PDT didn’t belong so they wanted to mess up his presidency.

        I would just say the “long passed their prime government bureaucrats”. This way they don’t think you’re being a conspiracy nut. You’re simply speaking about a group of disgruntled government workers that were trying to cause problems for the President.

          There are likely many “long past their prime” workers but they aren’t all acting against America. I believe in clear concise truth in identifying those we speak about. Merriam Webster defines corrupt and it is apropos.

          A shorter term for government bureaucrat could be found but I’m at a loss.

      Topic Headline –

      ‘The first time I saw documented evidence that the Senate Intel Committe facilitated the calling of a Specical Counsel Robert Mueller, was when the DOJ released the Carter Page Fisa documents and instead of including all original copies, it included the 03.17.17 requested FISA by the Committee’

      This 3.17.17 document was the Russian Allegation with Trump document that started the media and congress calling for Mueller in April 2016.

      The sickening thought is that once this was fabricated from the Steele Doosier, it was also leaked with bipartisan approval from the Committee and when the Leaker was caught the DOJ only got him for lying. That whew we realized the Mueller/Weisman Special Counsel was running the DOJ or atleast coordinating.

      Thats when it clicked – that all the odd outcomes for ndictments that ended with small sentences or things let go were solely the Result of Mueller/Weisman team running the DOJ.

      our country has no law or order – if our congress can manipulate us to undo elections.
