The news that former Trump campaign attorney Sidney Powell is arguing that no one should have taken her claims regarding election fraud seriously suggests an interesting crisis of confidence is upon us.

Also, progressives with an ingrained hatred of the pharmaceutical industry face a conundrum.

    I think the election was stolen. Not a bit based on Sidney Powell’s claims. The evidence that convinces me can easily be argued with. It doesn’t involve any illegal conspiracy either.

    Hi, John. I’m Mark J. Boone, philosophy nerd.

    I believe there was fraud in Fulton County, or at least some variety of unethical shenanigans.

    I do not believe the voting machines were rigged.
