The Big Sleep: CEO Mike Lindell’s Notes Reference Imposition of Martial Law

MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell has long been a diehard supporter of President Donald Trump. Indeed, on the day of the infamous speech preceding the riot in the Capitol, Lindell told media that he was confident that the day would bring vindication for the President. The statement left many of us scratching our heads since the certification of the victory of Joe Biden was only hours away. Now, the Washington Post has blown up the notes of Lindell leaving the Oval Office, which appear to refer to the Insurrection Act and the imposition of martial law. Media reports state that President Trump “cut short his meeting with MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell within minutes, after the entrepreneur was spotted at the White House brandishing notes referencing martial law.”

I previously condemned General Michael Flynn for his suggestion of martial law and criticized the President for not promptly throwing him out of the Oval Office.

Lindell reportedly denied that the notes referenced ‘martial law,’ but the picture confirms the reference. One line said “martial law if necessary upon the first hint of any….”  The memo also refers to the use “if necessary upon the first hint of any . . .” Thus, it could have been a reference to the use of martial law with any additional violence but Lindell’s earlier reportedly denial left many wondering about the purpose of such a declaration. Moreover, I criticized an earlier tweet of Lindell referencing martial law. That was before the Capitol rioting.

Notably, it also seems to refer to various firings including White House Counsel Pat Cipollone and CIA Director Gina Haspel. It bizarrely refers to relatively low level replacements for positions by previously unknown figures.  The combination of wholesale replacement of reasonable officials and the imposition of martial law sounds quite tyrannical. 

After an assault on our Capitol during the certification of the presidential election, this is hardly the stuff to give us the “best night’s sleep ever.”

My objection remains the same as with the meeting with Gen. Flynn in the Oval Office.  The President continues to surround himself with figures who appear to harbor extreme views on the use of martial law. If a president could unilaterally declare martial law over his own election, it would not be an invitation to tyranny, it would be tyranny itself.

  1. Material evidence of massive electoral fraud, including evaluations by IT forensic experts and hundreds of eye witness testimonies, systemically ignored by those in power, underscore the exercise of tyranny taking place in the U.S. Tyranny is not reflected in a President seeking a diversity of views and exercising free speech to clarify demonstrable facts not treated by the News Media.

  2. ‘25,000 troops currently transforming DC into a fortress but everybody’s worried about the zany MyPillow guy imposing martial law… with pillows?’
    @mtracey

    1. My advice – DO NOT GO TO THE CAPTIAL on inauguration day. Do not protest, Ignore it.

      That is not because you have no right to go.
      You have the absolute right.
      You have the absolute right to protests.

      Under some conditions – that are either present or that we are rapidly moving towards violence against government is justiifed.

      But all that said, at this time it is a tactical and strategic mistake.

      These people on the left are idiots. They are their own worst enemy. Let them fail on their own.

      Dorsey claimed that the permanent suspension of Trump was a one time thing. Still his action resulted in action by leaders accross the world. You need not like Trump to grasp that Twitter banning the president of the united states is a huge threat to ALL political leaders everywhere.

      And then Dorsey is caught by Project Vertias AFTER the fact telling twitter employees this is NOT a one time thing, that this is just the begining of a massive censorship and permanent banning campaign.

      There are 25,000 troops in the capital – more than in afghanistan. More than in the entire mid east.

      They have setup two “free speech zones” – you can not protest elsewhere – and only 100 people are allowed in each.

      There were pink pussy hats all over washington in 2016. Bricks were thrown, there was rioting looting and arson.

      But Biden needs 25.000 troops to be inaugurated ?

      The left is deathly afraid of the american people.

      Not only do many people know the election was not legitimate – the press knows, the left knows Biden knows.

      These people KNOW they are not legitimate – they are usurpers.

      Fight this – but for now – fight smart. Recall governors. conduct legislative investigations. File lawsuits. Do whatever is possible inside the law – for now.

      Separately allow them to destroy themselves.

      Derschowitz called to give Biden his 100 days – absolutely!!

      Lets see how he intends to govern. Given him the chance to actually seek unity, respect the rights of those who disagree, grasp that his legitimacy and power is weak.
      Or alternately to overreach and further enrage the country.
      Or to make serious mistakes and fail.

      I think the odds of Biden succeeding are near zero – but I am all for giving him enough rope to hang himself.

      Remember the 75M people who voted for Trump are REAL. They are unlikely to go away. It is highly unlikely that Biden can win them over. Democrats are not even trying. Instead they are trying to demonize censor and persecute them. AOC is atleast rhetorically talking about reeducation camps. Please – keep talking that kind of nonsense. Other democrats are talking about massive gun control – please keep talking that kind of nonsense. Others are talking of stacking the supreme court, or making DC and Puerto Rico states. or all kinds of nonsense. Please keep talking.

      Let democrats proceed unobstructed for a while. there are only 3 possibilities.

      1) The unlikely prospect that an ideology that has never worked anywhere will miraculously succeed this time.
      2). That the will create sufficient political backlash to destroy themselves.
      3). that they will go sufficiently far that support for actual violence and insurrection will grow sufficient.

      Regardless, the democratic party is behaving as if it is under seige – by the american people.

      1. The leftist demonstrators didn’t just get through invading the capitol while attempting to kill America’s leadership and repeated threats to return more heavily armed to finish the job. Had the far right just waited to demonstrate in the street without an Arsenal it’s doubtful 25,000 troops would be waiting for them. Even politicians on the right are getting death threats for not being far right enough. Where was anything close to that or the converse in 2017?

  3. Planning to mitigate another insurrection in Seattle, Portland, or even Salt Lake City, or perhaps a DC of trimesters not long ago.

  4. Can anyone explain why we have 25,000 troops, walls and barbed wire going up, and military checkpoints all over DC with a state of emergency declared in Maryland for the week of inauguration? I am asking seriously, why?

    What is really going on?

    1. There aren’t military checkpoints all over DC, only downtown near the National Mall.

      There are National Guard because there was a riot in the Capitol Building on 1/6 and there’s intel about additional violence planned.

      Hogan declared an emergency in MD because it gives him more flexibility in MD and in helping DC and surrounding states if needed, as the threats of violence also include state capitals around the country.

      You can look all of these things up if you want more information. For example –
      https://news.maryland.gov/mema/2021/01/15/governor-larry-hogan-declares-state-of-emergency-for-presidential-inauguration-requests-presidential-disaster-declaration/ and also click the link there to read the proclamation.

      1. What “Riot” took place. Please show the “Riots”. Who were they, Antifa and BLM dressed in Trump gear? You may be very surprised by the end of the week, when Trump is Inaugurated – FOOL. What BS will you push then? The Military has been Ordered into DC by TRUMP. Congress does not Command ANY Military. As soon as the Insurrection Act (which it already has been) is activated ALL National Guard is FEDERALIZED and under Trump’s Command. If Biden needed more troops than Afghanistan, for a “Virtual” Inauguration, then America never voted for him. Anyone with a brain can figure that out. But, if Trump lays his Cards down and mass ARRESTS of Commie Democrats and RINO’s begin, there will be a need for the Military there. No other reason for it. Biden is a JOKE, along with ALL those who think he won anything. It must be very sad to be so Vaccine DAMAGED, to believe that. Life must be so hard being told what to think rather than HOW to think. The “Set-up” that the Dem-wits thought they would wage in DC on the 6th, was known and used to take the Laptops and data from Pelosi and others. The JOKE is on YOU. lol. And it ain’t over til Biden HANGS – which will be soon, if he isn’t EXECUTED by Firing Squad first. Martial law coming, and Military Tribunals coming – for you Low Information IDIOTS.

        1. Are you another of the Qtards , like the antifa-BLM tards that’s been Duped/Run by the same Commie/Fascist Pelosi/Schumer/McConnell/Dim/Rinos & certain leaders of Fed LE agencies, etc.?

          1. Anon, Oh my. One car on fire. Filmed to make it look like the flames were huge. From the lead in you’d think the entire city was on fire. Did you notice, one quick full frame of the car on fire. The fireman framed as small with a huge fire behind him. No mention of “mostly peaceful” protests here. Just for fun. Let’s compare this car on fire to the flames in Seattle. Once again, don’t you dare believe you lyin eyes. Fooled by the click bait machine once again. It’s so fun. Some are so easy to manipulate. As long as that ring is in their nose we’ve got control of their dumb asses. Hey Louise, isn’t it amazing how they fall for it over and over again. Ha Ha. And they think the rednecks are Rubes?

          2. That is a picture of 2017 inauguration of Trump. See the headline? Democrats rioting. The breach of the capital was calm compared to Walmart on black Friday. Truth is out there if you can handle it.

            1. Yes, a calm armed demonstration with a noose for the Vice President, others hunting for the senators and the speaker of house to hold them hostage or kill them and saying they would be back with more guns next time. I don’t know why you think this is comparable to folks smashing up a local target or Wendy’s or a post hockey game riot but I can tell you our enemies abroad are delighted there are folks like you that do.

  5. DC Worker Shows Video of Military Checkpoints in City. Expect this man to be doxxed, hunted and destroyed by the Left for the terrible crime of honesty.

    So much for Biden and his pleas for “follow the science” on lockdowns, social distancing and no holiday travels, group gatherings yada yada yada. Biden is truly demented thinking his inauguration is a joyous affair for the nation. What an ominous sign to start a Presidency.

    1. A reminder: Trump is currently President, so the National Guard who the guy in the video is expressing concern about were placed there under Trump’s Administration, not by Biden. For the record, he’s near the National Mall in DC. Most of DC does not have this kind of Guard presence.

      No one gives a **** whether you consider Biden’s inauguration to be joyful. Trump’s inauguration wasn’t joyful to many and was followed by the Women’s March with ~1.5M protesters.

      Not sure why you think this undermines Biden’s plea to follow the science. He isn’t having a large inauguration.

              1. It isn’t bogus. They show the source of every single data point. You just don’t like what the data show.

            1. There we go citing useless polls again. What a fools errand and thanks for the laughs. Trump got my first R vote ever and I worked campsigns before for the Dems. I gave them tens of thousands over the years. Trump gave his all for people like me and I am grateful for that. In my part of the World, he is the most loved POTUS of all time. Most Democrats I know voted for him in 2020 and they didn’t in 2016. The suggestion that the election was fair is laughable.

              1. Info. from Google: On March 26, 2016 in the Washington State Democrat caucus (real people voting), Bernie beat Hillary 72.7% to 27.1%. During the Primary vote counted by Dominion machines on May 24, 2016, Hillary beat Bernie 53% to 47%. Those votes were less than 2 months apart when Bernie was rising Nationally. I always thought that those figures were quite odd until November 2020.

                1. The caucus has about 25,000 delegates vote, vs 800,000 voters during the primary. I hardly think the two are comparable. A more apt comparison may be the time Ted Cruz best Trump in the Iowa caucus, followed by Trump declaring that Cruz stole the election: https://www.desmoinesregister.com/story/news/elections/presidential/caucus/2019/07/11/american-carnage-tim-alberta-iowa-gop-donald-trump-republican-caucus-results-2016-ted-cruz/1703871001/

    2. The People didn’t …

      The CCP, and traitors in cahoots with various global oligarch’s did.

      I do not consent.

  6. next week all the alphabet soup agencies will activate their provocateurs and informants and sleeper agents and instigate another riotous incident likely far worse and that will be another pretext for more government crackdown. we all know it’s coming.

    and it will only serve to precipitate, sadly. the logic of low intensity conflict is in motion

    1. How can they instigate another riotous incident, when you’ve presented no evidence that they instigated the first one?

          1. Anon, just watched the video three times. No broken widow. No broken door. You must have some great hallucinogens in your little pouch.

            1. I bet you watched the wrong one, even though I explicitly said the “5:56 PM comment.” The 5:56 PM video shows a protester smashing windows from 14-25 seconds in. Dominic Pezzola, who was arrested for breaking the windows, among other acts, can be seen in that very segment. You’re not very attentive.

            1. You can say it 100 times, but you’ll still be ignoring that many protesters broke in. You posted a video at 5:56 PM yesterday that shows a Proud Boy named Dominic Pezzola smashing windows at 14-25 seconds into the video. He’s been arrested for breaking the windows, among other acts.

              Here’s another video of protesters trying to break in –

              1. What is emerging is a very complex story.

                It is my understanding that the FBI had more than 100K credible tips that there would be violence – yet they did not inform the capital police and they did not inform the whitehouse.

                Increasingly there is clear evidence that there was significant planning of those – both by Qannon groups – interestingly doing so on Twitter and FaceBook not Parlor – and that the FBI was aware of it and did nothing.

                That are also some claims that suggest he FBI may have been complicit – that atleast some of the Qannon stuff is an FBI operation. There is good reason to investigate. We have enough evidence from the church commission in the 60’s and from the post 9/11 FBI entrapment of muslims in the US to KNOW that the FBI engages in illegal political misconduct.

                Regardless we should know what the FBI’s role is. If they are just monitoring groups (left or right) – why isn;t that intelligence being forwarded ? Or are they doing more than monitoring – are they engaged in entrappment, incitement, egging people on. No matter what there is a massive failure on the part of the FBI.

                I would further note that the capital police force – that is the police officers specifically charged to deal with the capital building are 2400 strong. Had they been properly prepared they could easily have dealt with what occured – without violence and without shutting the capital down.

                It would have been trivial to barricade the capital and screen people as they entered – no guns, no gas masks, no weapons of any kind. Protestors could have chanted and stomped their feet and said they were their to hang Mike Pence or whatever, and still not been able to do anything except convey their deep anger to the 538 members of congress who failed to do their jobs.

                The people have the absolute right to phyically intimidate members of congress with their pressense to demand fair elections. Whether they are free to act with violence depends on the loss of trust and lawlessness of govenrment itself.

        1. George, if I may, I would recommend a book by Victor Davis Hanson. “The Soul of Battle”. The book discusses ancient to present wars. One section is titled, “Sherman’s March To The Sea”. The book may not support your understanding of the history, but if we only read the things we agree with we rob ourselves of a wider breadth of knowledge. I read an article from CNN this morning on Orwell’s 1984. The article stated that Orwell loved the truth more than free speech. It did not take into account that truth is recognized by the beholder. Free speech is necessary to allow open arguments so truth might be found. It wasn’t easy, but I read the complete article.

    2. Lockdown Trump supporters to make room for George Soros funded anarchists

      Antifa Activist Daniel Alan Baker Arrested for Plotting to Murder Trump Supporters — Tells Supporters on YouTube He Received Soros Money

      Antifa supporter Daniel Alan Baker was arrested for plotting to murder Trump supporters and police on Inauguration Day.

      He trained in Syria in 2017 with the YPG, was featured on VICE, and in 2020 participated in the CHAZ insurrection in Seattle, per DOJ documents.

      Jack Posobiec broke the story Friday.

      Antifa supporter Daniel Alan Baker posted links to CNN on his “Call to Arms” to kill Trump supporters and police officers on Inauguration Day

      He has been arrested by the FBI pic.

      — Jack Posobiec 🇺🇸 (@JackPosobiec) January 16, 2021

      Baker posted links to CNN on his “Call to Arms” to kill Trump supporters and police officers on Inauguration Day.

      Daniel Alan Baker wanted to stockpile AK-47s and build bombs in CHAZ district in Seattle to start “the revolution.”

      The criminal complaint included Daniel Baker saying he received Soros money and he will be offering cash rewards for information on Trump supporters in his video.

      He sounds like a piece of work but he has ties to the Seattle ANTIFA BLM terrorists and no doubt charges against him there were dropped just like Kamala Harris and Democrats demanded

      Here is the criminal complaint

      1. I’m glad he’s been arrested. But your claim “no doubt charges against him there were dropped” is baseless.
