Right-wing media figure Steve Bannon has slammed MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell's cyber symposium for failing to present evidence that actually proves Lindell's long-touted claims of voter fraud in the 2020 presidential elections.  Bannon served as White House Chief Strategist under former President Donald Trump.

There's neither legal nor historic precedent to support Lindell's theory about Trump's reinstatement by the Supreme Court.

Trump-boosting pillow huckster Mike Lindell had offered a $5 million reward to anyone who showed up to his three-day "cyber symposium" and could disprove his claims that China hacked the 2020 presidential election via voting machines. That offer is no longer on the table as of Wednesday evening.  The data Lindell had long promised to reveal at this week’s symposium in South Dakota was bogus.

While the pillow mogul has long boasted he had 37 terabytes of "irrefutable" evidence that revealed Chinese-backed hackers had broken into election systems in all 50 states and flipped votes from Donald Trump to Joe Biden, he had delayed unveiling the "packet captures" -- otherwise known as intercepted network traffic or pcaps -- throughout the seminar.

Throughout the first day of the symposium, several cyber experts who had traveled to Sioux Falls to attend in person and examine the packet captures had become frustrated and irritated that Lindell failed to provide any data, with one attendee saying they had only been shown random garbage.  Newsweek contacted Lindell's office for comment but did not hear back in time for publication.

:roll: This gives a whole new meaning to the term "Pillow Talk".

More, from the Washington Times (a conservative news outlet)...

The cyber expert on the "Red Team" hired by MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell now says the key data underpinning the theory that China hacked the 2020 election unveiled at the Cyber Symposium is illegitimate.

Mr. Lindell said he had 37 terabytes of "irrefutable" evidence that hackers, who he said were backed by China, broke into election systems and switched votes in favor of President Biden.  The proof, he said, is visible in intercepted network data or "packet captures" that were collected by hackers and could be unencrypted to reveal that a cyberattack occurred and that votes were switched.

But cyber expert Josh Merritt, who is on the team hired by Mr. Lindell to interrogate the data for the symposium, told The Washington Times that packet captures are unrecoverable in the data and that the data, as provided, cannot prove a cyber incursion by China.


Mr. Merritt’s break from Mr. Lindell accelerated the unraveling of the MyPillow millionaire’s months of spinning of a conspiracy theory that he said would reverse the outcome of the 2020 election and restore former President Donald Trump to the White House.

Mr. Lindell had offered $5 million to any in-person attendee who can disprove his claims. That offer has since been withdrawn.

MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell fled the stage at his cyber symposium at the same time news broke that Dominion's billion-dollar defamation lawsuit against him would proceed.  He was seen dashing off the stage at his cyber symposium Wednesday at the same time news broke that the $1.3 billion defamation suit filed against him by Dominion Voting Systems would go ahead.

Lindell attempted to have the defamation lawsuit dismissed during a hearing in June.  But US District Judge Carl J. Nichols on Wednesday ruled the three defamation lawsuits against Lindell and the pro-Trump lawyers Sidney Powell and Rudy Giuliani could proceed in full.  The suits are seeking more than a billion dollars in damages from each party.

Nichols noted in his judgment that the First Amendment offered "no blanket immunity" to Lindell in the Dominion lawsuit.  The company alleges it was defamed by Lindell's false claims that it rigged the 2020 election against Donald Trump.

:lol: This keeps getting progressively more interesting!

Pillow fight: MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell told guests at his election fraud "cyber symposium" in South Dakota that he was "assaulted" at his hotel.

Lindell, 60, told attendees Thursday he was "attacked" the night before at his hotel in Sioux Falls amid his three-day event at the South Dakota Heritage Alliance, the Sioux Falls Argus Leader reports.

Video posted to Twitter shows Lindell saying he was "attacked" as he got to his hotel, but refused to provide additional details.

He later claimed Antifa or left-wing protesters were involved, but did not elaborate.  An investigation is ongoing, no arrests have been made, and no one was taken to the hospital in the alleged assault.

:roll: This alleged "attack" is reminiscent of the staged "attack" on Jussie Smollett.

Maybe the Antifa guys who attacked him were the same folks as those MAGA hat wearing guys who attacked Jussie Smollett.

And both are one and the same as...that "small foreign faction" who left that ransom note for the Ramseys!

Damn! That "faction" certain does get around! :lol:

There is some social currency in appropriating the "Victim" label; but only as long as it is not overdone ... even formerly sympathetic allies are now putting distance between themselves and Mr. Lindell.

Your sarcasm is noted.

If true, however, Antifa has nothing to fear from Mike Lindell, because he knows only lies.

“We kept hearing from election officials that voting machines were never on the internet,” he said. “And we knew that wasn't true".

"a team of 10 independent cybersecurity experts who specialize in voting systems and elections. While the voting machines themselves are not designed to be online, the larger voting systems in many states end up there, putting the voting process at risk".
https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/electi ... g-n1112436

So, it's possible Mike is right.

Computers are hacked all the time.

The states errored and put voting machines online, and even lied about it.

Is it so far-fetched these machines got hacked?

Yes, actually.  Because while some people may claim hacking occurred, no one has proven that hacking occurred.  It is the responsibility of people like Mike Lindell to prove their claims, and not for anyone else to disprove them.  And since Mr. Lindell has lied about having proof, it is reasonable to assume that his claims about alleged hacking are lies as well.

Newsweek is the very last place I'd look for accuracy in reporting.

Did you even bother to read past the first source, or are just another one of those "Don't trust anything but YouTube" types?  Read through the entire thread, and you will see that Newsweek is only on of many sources I cited.

:roll: Never let YouTube videos do your thinking for you.
