MIKE LINDELL - THE PILLOW GUY



MIKE LINDELL THE PILLOW GUY

MEMBER IN GOOD STANDING OF P.R.I.C.K.

He Is A Liar, Convicted Con, Former Banned Card Reader In Vegas, Druggie, Scumbag, Trumpet,  And Sick In The Head.   Mike Lindell, Got Owned In The Worst Possible Way On His Ridiculous Election Fraud Claims, And He is Dangerous  —  

Analysis by Chris Cillizza, CNN Editor-at-large


(CNN)  Mike Lindell is the single most prominent pusher this side of Donald Trump of the Big Lie -- the idea that the 2020 election was somehow stolen despite zero evidence to back up that claim.

The MyPillow founder has spent oodles of time (and a decent chunk of his own money) seeding the fever swamps of conservative media -- and its adherents -- with outlandish ideas that votes were changed electronically from Trump to Joe Biden, with no one but him any the wiser. (You can read more about the so-called "Italygate" conspiracy theory here.)

Because Lindell usually limits his public appearances to websites and TV networks that have a financial interest in continuing to feed this lie, he is rarely challenged on the utter ridiculousness of his claims. 

That changed on Thursday. Lindell sat down with CNN's Drew Griffin for an interview to, uh, explain his theory about how voter fraud was committed in the 2020 election. The entire interview is worth watching, but there's one back and forth that exposes the utter insanity of Lindell's case in a way I hadn't previously seen. 


Here it is:

Griffin:  You identify 15 counties where the votes were switched, we contacted all 15 counties --
Lindell:  (INAUDIBLE).

Griffin:   red and blue, red and blue.
Lindell:   It doesn't matter.

Griffin:   And we couldn't find a single person that said this is even possible. They say, are -- you are mistaken.
Lindell:   Right.

Griffin:   They think you're wrong.
Lindell:   Right.

In the words of Gob Bluth: Ok, ok, ok shoulda shoulda shoulda shoulda —  What happened here is pretty simple: Lindell got confronted with facts. Facts that not only said that votes weren't changed in the last election but also that they simply could not be changed in the way he is alleging because voting machines are not connected to the internet -- for safety and security reasons. 

And Lindell folded like an inexpensive suit. A really, really cheap one  —  While this is only a snippet of the longer conversation that Griffin and Lindell had, it's indicative of Lindell's utter inability to offer anything beyond vague statements and easily disproven claims about what happened in the 2020 election.

What shines through -- in both the passage above and in the broader interview -- is that Lindell has, to put a fine point on it, absolutely no idea what he is talking about. He hasn't done the legwork (which Griffin and CNN did). His "proof" is literally random screenshots that he says reveal that votes have been changed. As Griffin noted: "These images are just publicly available voter data scrolling across the screen, not proof of election hacking."

It's almost comic watching Lindell, when confronted with indisputable evidence that he is just plain wrong, try to find some way to save face.  Notice I said it's "almost" comic. Because the truth is that what Lindell is doing is an active danger to democracy. Too many people believe him -- because they want to believe that Trump won -- and don't do any sort of fact-checking or research on their own.

This isn't a theoretical conversation about the dangers Lindell and others like him pose. January 6 happened. We saw the real-world effects of the likes of Lindell shopping this crap to people who either don't know better or don't want to know better.  Five people lost their lives. More than 100 police officers were injured. And, unless people like Lindell are totally and completely repudiated, something like January 6 could very well happen again.

He needs some support like rope  —  hanging alongside the other liars like T-RUMP, McCarthy, Mc Connell, and half the Trumpets and Obstructionists in the Senate.


(CNN)  More On Morons —  Since the presidential election, Christina Jensen says she's been stopped on the street several times by acquaintances who wanted to share troubling news: hackers from Beijing had switched nearly 24,000 votes for Donald Trump in their rural, GOP-leaning Wisconsin county. 

Jensen, the Clark County clerk and a Republican herself, has patiently explained that the local election computer system isn't connected to the internet -- and the county has less than 17,000 registered voters overall. 

But she finds herself unable to convince those constituents of the simple fact that the election wasn't stolen: "They are like, 'Well, Mike Lindell says this,'" Jensen said. 

Lindell, the MyPillow CEO and a close ally of former President Donald Trump, has emerged as one of the most vocal boosters still pushing false claims about the 2020 election. In a series of so-called documentaries, Lindell has advanced an increasingly outlandish theory that foreign hackers broke into the computer systems of election offices like Clark County to switch votes -- in what he has described as the "biggest cyber-crime in world history." 


Election officials at more than a dozen counties that Lindell has claimed were hacking targets told CNN that the pillow magnate's claims are utterly meritless. They noted that their voting machines are not connected to the internet, that the results are confirmed by paper ballots, and in some cases that official audits, recounts, or reviews have verified their vote tallies. 

In addition, CNN interviewed nine cybersecurity experts, all of whom said the "proof" Lindell has released so far is nonsense -- and that there is zero evidence of any kind of successful hacking of last year's election results. 

But many Americans are buying into baseless claims of vote fraud: polls have found that roughly two-thirds of Republicans believe President Joe Biden was not legitimately elected. And while Lindell isn't as prominent as other right-wing figures denying the election results -- including the former President himself -- his rhetoric has broken through among some of the Trump faithful. 

Jensen said she watched Lindell's video "Absolute Proof" -- which claims that 23,909 votes for Trump had been switched in her county -- after a concerned voter emailed her a link to it. 

"It made me angry," she said. "He has created a lot of doubt in a lot of peoples' minds, even though the count was accurate." Trump won the county with a margin of more than 5,000 votes. 

Lindell -- who once considered running for Minnesota governor or other elected office -- has become persona non grata in mainstream conservative circles. He's been booted from Twitter for violating its policy on sharing election fraud claims, and his videos have been swiftly removed from YouTube and other platforms. His pillows have been taken off the shelves at retailers such as Bed Bath & Beyond and Kohl's. And he and his company are facing a $1.3 billion defamation lawsuit from the voting machine company Dominion, which Lindell has falsely accused of being involved in voter fraud. 

Now, Lindell is resorting to a last-ditch attempt to promote his theory, planning a "cyber symposium" this month in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, where he says he will release 37 terabytes of data showing election hacking. 

In a rambling and combative interview with CNN, Lindell insisted that he had proof the election was stolen.  "I'm not wrong. I've checked it out. I've spent millions," he claimed. "You need to trust me and come there." 

Election officials say Lindell's conspiracies are undermining faith in the voting system. Scott McDonell, the clerk for Dane County, Wisconsin -- another county where Lindell has claimed hacking switched thousands of votes from Trump to Biden -- said that out of all the election theories he's heard, Lindell's is "the worst one because it's the dumbest." 

The county conducted a hand recount of every ballot, paid for by Trump's campaign, which verified Biden's win. And every ballot in the state has a paper trail.   "It's damaging to our democracy," McDonell said of Lindell's claims. "Spurious allegations spread on the internet because they affirm what you want to believe.” 


From Pillows To Conspiracies  —  Two Pr*cks In a Pod  —  


Since Trump's loss last fall, Lindell has been a super spreader of election misinformation.  A Minnesotan who often talks about his journey from recovered crack cocaine addict to CEO, Lindell made a name for himself with cheery infomercials showing him hugging his trademark pillow. He fell into Trump's orbit during the 2016 election, attending his election night watch party and later showing up at White House events. 

Even as many Republican politicians acknowledged Biden's victory, Lindell stuck with Trump's lies about his loss. Lindell has shared a wide range of theories of why the election was stolen, from ballots cast by dead voters to Biden votes being counted multiple times -- all of which have been debunked. 

His latest and most operatic theory involves a sweeping conspiracy in which hackers from China and other foreign countries broke into elections office computer systems around the country to reduce the number of votes for Trump. The claim is supported, he says, by "heroes" who supposedly captured data proving the hacking and then leaked it to Lindell in January. 


Donald Trump's Political Organization Builds War Chest Topping $100 Million  —

Lindell included a snippet of the data in one of his videos and sent CNN a half-dozen additional screenshots he said were examples of the data. He said he has spent millions of dollars to verify the data by hiring unnamed experts -- some of whom he has included, with their faces blurred out and voices changed, in his videos. 

But Lindell's claims don't hold water. The first block of data from Lindell's "Absolutely 9-0" video, released in June, was a dramatic scrolling video of a long series of numbers in hexadecimal format, a numeric system used by some programmers. 

When the data is converted to text, it becomes clear that it is not evidence of hacking but a version of Pennsylvania's voter file, listing every voter registered in the state -- a copy of which can be purchased from the state government for $20. The Washington Post first reported the voter file connection. 

In the video, one of Lindell's anonymous experts says that the data he was showing was “ Raw, encrypted data" proving election hacking. But Lindell later claimed that the data was simply "B-roll," a placeholder for the actual evidence. 

The other snippets of data Lindell sent to CNN -- which he says are the real deal -- are also far from proof, according to nine cybersecurity experts who reviewed them. The screenshots are other blocks of hexadecimal numbers. When converted to text, they appear to be a list of IP addresses and coordinates, but nothing proving hacking or even the nature of any traffic between them. 

In his videos, Lindell has called his data "PCAPs," or packet captures -- a technical format for capturing web traffic. But the experts CNN consulted agreed that the data he has released so far are not PCAPs. Some of the IP addresses listed appear to be associated with public county and city websites -- but not computers involved in vote casting, tallying or other critical election infrastructure, the experts said. 

"These are not PCAP files," said Harri Hursti, a computer programmer who organizes voting machine hacking tests and has assisted with election audits. Lindell "has shown no evidence that he has PCAP files and he has shown no evidence that these files have anything to do with elections," he said. 

J. Alex Halderman, a professor of computer science and engineering at the University of Michigan and expert in voting machines, called Lindell's antics "completely ridiculous." 

"When security experts produce evidence, we don't send around video of hex-encoded files -- that's entirely Hollywood," he said. "What we do is share the original data (along with information to support its provenance and authenticity) and explain our interpretation so that other experts can verify or dispute it." 

Lindell claims that he will release his full dataset showing election hacking at his so-called symposium. "Nobody has seen what I have," he said. "No judge, nobody, until I sent you guys a piece of it." 

But notably, experts said the vast majority of votes in the US -- including in battleground states -- are cast by paper ballot or supported by a paper trail. That means that if hacking did occur, it could be proven by looking back at the ballots. And recounts or audits in several of the counties Lindell says were hacked have verified the results based on those paper ballots. 

"The ballots are ink on dead trees," said Dan Wallach, a Rice University computer science professor who has researched electronic voting system security. "Nothing that happens in China can change the ink on those dead trees." 

Numerous election officials in the counties that Lindell has identified as purported targets for hacking told CNN they were baffled and frustrated by his claims. The officials said that their vote-tallying machines are not connected to the internet at all -- and that the specifics of Lindell's allegations simply don't add up. 

Take Adams County, Pennsylvania, the home of the Gettysburg battlefield. Trump won the county with 37,567 votes, compared to 18,254 for Biden. Data included by Lindell in one of his videos and in court documents allege that 33,111 votes had been stolen from Trump after a hack on November 4 or November 5.

Molly Mudd, the county solicitor, said that nearly all of the county's ballots had been counted and reported by Election Night, November 3, before Lindell alleges the hack took place. And if Lindell's claim about that many votes being swapped were correct, Mudd said in an email, "then it would mean that Biden actually won Adams County (a heavily Republican-leaning county) by an unprecedented landslide, which is probably not the outcome that Mr. Lindell and his associates are fishing for." 

Some officials said they were seeing the impact of election conspiracy theories spread by Lindell and others among their communities and neighbors. 

In Houghton County, Michigan, near the northern tip of the state's Upper Peninsula, election officials have been deluged by emails from voters who believe their ballots were switched, said clerk Jennifer Kelly -- even though the county's machines are separate from the internet. Some voters have complained at monthly county board meetings, and others have demanded to view the ballots themselves, she said. 

"It's the election that never ends," Kelly said.   And across the state in Oakland County, a Detroit suburb, election officials say they get regular phone calls from people claiming their votes were stolen, even after a canvass and two audits of the paper ballots verified the results.   "It's very convenient to say after the fact, 'oh, you know, it was hacked,'" said Lisa Brown, the county clerk. "This is a guy who sells pillows... I don't know why anybody would want to listen to him as an expert on anything related to elections.” 


Vote-Flipping Theory Has Questionable Origins  —  Lindell's vote-flipping theories have striking similarities to a thoroughly debunked conspiracy theory -- advanced by a group of right-wing bloggers who have cited a former intelligence contractor with a checkered past -- that a supercomputer was used to steal votes from Trump across the country. 

In "Absolute Proof," Lindell includes a video of a map showing colorful lines and dots connecting the United States to other countries around the world -- which he claimed illustrated hacking election attempts from those countries. 


A nearly identical graphic previously appeared on a website connected to Dennis Montgomery, a former intelligence contractor who has been the subject of multiple exposes detailing exaggerated claims and alleged cons involving junk data. 

Starting in 2013, Montgomery convinced former Maricopa County, Arizona, Sheriff Joe Arpaio to pay him more than $100,000 for data that supposedly showed an illegal conspiracy involving a federal judge. A detective for the sheriff's office wrote in a 2014 email that the data contained "no evidence to support" Montgomery's claims. And Montgomery and his associates previously received more than $20 million in federal government contracts for terrorism-fighting software that appeared to have been a hoax, The New York Times reported in 2011. 

Lindell co-produced "Absolute Proof" with right-wing online broadcaster Brannon Howse and a blogger who goes by the name Mary Fanning, both of whom were early promoters of the supercomputer conspiracy theory. In the video, Fanning calls Lindell as he shows the map graphic, and talks through what she claims were attempted and successful cyber attacks. 

In multiple articles on her blog, The American Report, and discussions on Howse's show, Fanning has attributed her beliefs about vote-flipping to Montgomery. 

Lindell said in "Absolutely 9-0" that his unnamed sources gave him the data on January 9. And Howse said during an episode of his show that he and Fanning called Lindell on January 9 and shared their theory with him that same day. 

"We were talking, we're like, who can we get some of this information to that has the courage and the guts to talk about this, take on this cause, bring it to the president?" Howse said on the podcast. "I said there's only one guy in my Rolodex I know that has that kind of access, that kind of popularity and the guts to do it. And that's Mike Lindell." 

In a January interview with Howse, Lindell said Howse and Fanning were the people who alerted him to "the answers I was looking for" about mass vote switching. 

In the interview with CNN, Lindell said he hadn't met Montgomery or Fanning and that he had multiple sources for his data. Montgomery, Fanning and Howse did not respond to CNN's requests for comment. 


Election Lies And Pillow Promos —  According to Lindell, his advocacy for overturning the election has cost him millions of dollars in lost business. After his pillows were dropped by major retailers earlier this year, "that's 40% of my whole business wiped out in a blink of an eye," Lindell told CNN. 


Still, right-wing podcasts and shows that feature him often include promo codes for MyPillow. Voting machine company Dominion argued in its defamation lawsuit that Lindell used his prominence in pushing false election claims to bring in new business from Trump supporters -- although there are no public records about how the controversy has truly affected MyPillow's finances. 

Last week, Lindell said MyPillow planned to stop advertising on Fox News, where its pillow ads are a common sight, because the channel won't run a promo for his August event.  Trump has continued his ties to Lindell, speaking via video at a Wisconsin rally headlined by the MyPillow CEO in June. 

Lindell has said that after his big reveal this month, he expects the Supreme Court to rule 9-0 in favor of reinstating Trump as president -- even though there's no constitutional mechanism for that to happen.   Experts agree that Lindell's fanciful claims are fanciful and unsupported -- and are eroding trust in our democracy. 

"Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence," said Wallach, the Rice University professor. "This ain't that.

MyPillow Pulling Ads From Network Over Rejected Election-Fraud Commercial  — ‘It’s Unfortunate’  — Story By Justin Baragona / Contributing Editor and  Asawin Suebsaeng / Senior Political Reporter

Trump-boosting pillow magnate Mike Lindell, whose company MyPillow is one of Fox News’ largest advertisers, said on Thursday night that he is pulling his commercials from the network because they won’t run a commercial pushing baseless claims of voter fraud in the 2020 election.

Screen%2BShot%2B2021-07-05%2Bat%2B11.09.32%2BPM


“Shame on Fox News! Shame on them,” Lindell told The Daily Beast. “When I was told they wouldn’t run the ad, I said to cut off advertising on Fox immediately and indefinitely.”

In response to Lindell’s claim that he was immediately pulling his ads, Fox News said in a statement: “It’s unfortunate Mr. Lindell has chosen to pause his commercial time on FOX News given the level of success he’s experienced in building his brand through advertising on the number one cable news network.”

Over the past few months, Lindell has increasingly voiced his displeasure with Fox News for not promoting or even mentioning his fruitless efforts to “prove” that Donald Trump lost the election through voter machine manipulation. President Joe Biden, in fact, decisively won the election. According to countless election officials and courts, there is no evidence that fraud was responsible for Trump’s electoral loss.


Lindell had become particularly incensed these past few weeks that the network wasn’t planning to cover his upcoming “ Cyber Symposium,” which he’s long hyped would finally unveil incontrovertible evidence proving that Trump won the election.  He’s even gone so far as to say recently that the data he would unveil about voting machine fraud would be so compelling that the Supreme Court would reinstate Trump next month with a unanimous ruling.

With the 72-hour symposium scheduled to live stream next month on his website FrankSpeech.com, Lindell told Salon last week that he planned to run ads on the network promoting the Sioux Falls event, since Fox was ignoring it.

“Fox [News] does not talk about anything with the election,” Lindell told Salon. “So I’m going to make ads that will talk about—at least advertising for FrankSpeech.com—that we’re going to be televising this [cyber symposium] for 72 hours straight.”

According to Lindell, however, Fox News had declined to run the commercial promoting the symposium, prompting him to tell his ad buyer to immediately cancel all his other ads on the network.   Fox, meanwhile, did not say whether it refused to run the ad in question.

“They won’t even run an ad for directions for where people can watch the symposium online? Give me a break,” he added to The Daily Beast. “Things change, but right now I have no plans to ever advertise on Fox News again.”

While Fox News has rejected the ad, Lindell told Salon that the network's far-right competitors Newsmax and OAN have agreed to air the symposium commercial. OAN has previously aired Lindell’s “docu-movies” that supposedly revealed “absolute proof” of election fraud, albeit with a hefty disclaimer distancing the channel from his claims. 

Lindell also said that the commercial didn’t specifically make any election fraud claims. At the same time, he has said that the symposium will conclusively prove that Trump won the election.

The pillow salesman added that he spent over $50 million on Fox News ads last year and has dropped another $19 million so far this year. According to the advertising analysis site iSpot.tv, MyPillow ranks among the network’s top five advertisers.

Lindell has found himself embroiled in legal hot water over his wild, groundless allegations that corrupt voting-machine software flipped millions of Trump votes to Biden. Voting machine manufacturer Dominion Voting Systems, for instance, filed a $1.3 billion defamation lawsuit against Lindell and his company. Lindell followed with a bizarre countersuit, claiming Dominion engaged in a racketeering conspiracy.


Dominion and voting software firm Smartmatic have also both filed lawsuits against Fox News, alleging the network’s hosts and guests made defamatory remarks and falsely accused the companies of defrauding the election. Fox News has filed motions to dismiss both cases, insisting that its coverage of the election fraud claims was both newsworthy and covered by the First Amendment.



$$$   DOMINION BILLION DOLLAR LAWSUIT PENDING

👺  New York (CNN Business) —   Dominion Voting Systems, the election technology company that has been the focus of debunked conspiracy theories about election fraud, is suing MyPillow and its CEO Mike Lindell.

The company is seeking about $1.3 billion in damages for Lindell's numerous unfounded public statements by allies of former President Donald Trump that Dominion rigged its machines in favor of Joe Biden in the 2020 US presidential election.

The 115-page lawsuit filed Monday in Washington, DC, cites Lindell's media appearances and social media posts pushing what they called the "Big Lie" about Dominion's machines — including a two-hour film that aired on OAN and was filled with falsehoods about voting irregularities.

In the lawsuit, Dominion writes that Lindell “ Sells the lie to this day because the lie sells pillows citing promotional discount codes on MyPillow’s website, including “FightforTrump”, “ Proof",  and  "QAnon."

The filing comes a few weeks after Dominion spokesman Michael Steel told CNN that Lindell is "begging to be sued." MyPillow didn't immediately return CNN's request for comment. 

"Despite repeated warnings and efforts to share the facts with him, Mr. Lindell has continued to maliciously spread false claims about Dominion, each time giving empty assurances that he would come forward with overwhelming proof," said Dominion CEO John Poulos in a statement Monday. 

Poulos added that Lindell's statements "caused irreparable harm to Dominion's good reputation and threatened the safety of our employees and customers."

Lindell promised his followers proof, but instead he "delivered absolute nonsense and fake documents sourced from the dark corners of the internet," said Dominion legal counsel Megan Meier, Partner at Clare Locke LLP, in a statement, adding that Lindell "needs to be held accountable for defaming Dominion and undermining the integrity of our electoral system all the while profiting from it."

The suit vows that "through discovery, Dominion will prove that there is no real evidence supporting the Big Lie. Dominion brings this action to vindicate the company's rights, to recover damages, to seek a narrowly tailored injunction, to stand up for itself and its employees, and to stop Lindell and MyPillow from further profiting at Dominion's expense."

Dominion recently sued Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani and lawyer Sidney Powell for about the same amount each after they pushed similar lies about the US election and Dominion.   Rudy Giuliani ( another winner and contestant in the Pr*ck of The Year Contest)  called Dominion’s lawsuit against him an “ Act of intimidation” to “censor the exercise of free speech”    ( err, not free speech, we have a thing about free lies and untruths)  and Sidney Powell another Lawyer        ( Seemingly on leave from the States Mental Institution ) called Dominion’s action against her “baseless.”  ( Should have been called brainless)  Lindell was recently permanently banned from Twitter for repeatedly sharing election misinformation.

I purchased 8 towels from My Pillow in January, 2 of them rotted, I had never seen anything like this before . I called the company thinking they would for sure want to know about this. Apparently I was wrong. They told me I would hear back from them in a few days, but I didn't hear from them. I had to call them back. I had sent pictures like I was told. That was all I was told to do…. 

This lady I was talking to treated me very rude and told me she couldn't find the pictures I sent and to send them again, then she found them. She told me to send the towels back. The lady I spoke to prior just told me pictures she didn't tell me to send the towels back . I had bought before from this company and was treated very nice but this time the customer service treated me very rude. I don't know what is going on with these towels and apparently they don't care about their customers nor their products!

My Pillow Response  —  07/20/2021  —  We do not recognize the Better Business Bureau as a legitimate company. Therefore, we will not be responding to any further communications.

  • 2/18/2021 Purchased 2 pillows online from MY Pillow $64.83 I never received my Pillows contacted the company to see why...They said there's nothing they can do for me.

  • 07/12/2021  —  I have invested in four my pillows, I like the pillows but I was sure that they were supposed to last a lifetime I was told to email the label and evidence of one of my pillow bursting never heard from them I remember they got an F rating from the BBB I see why. I want was them to give me a pillow or my money back and honor their lifetime warranty.

MyPillow Petition for Amazon, Walmart to Pull Items Passes 100,000 Signatures

A petition demanding some of the country's top retailers remove Mike Lindell's MyPillow products from sale has hit the 100,000 signature mark.  The viral change.org petition is calling for companies such as Walmart, Amazon and Costco to stop selling MyPillow items because of the controversies surrounding Lindell, a Donald Trump supporter who frequently spread misinformation and conspiracy theories about last year's presidential election.

Just google:  Mypillow at Change

The petition was set up in mid-January after Lindell was photographed holding a note before a meeting with Trump at the White House which appeared to show him advocating for martial law being imposed in the wake of the January 6 attack on the Capitol.

Lindell also posted a video on social media site Parler suggesting he supported the insurrection while continuing to push misinformation about Trump remaining president even though he lost the election.

"Today 01/15/2021 the MyPillow founder met with President Trump and suggested instituting martial law after the twice impeached president staged a coup," the petition states. "Time to tell our major retailers to stop selling his products. 


We will not support funding insurrectionists!"

The petition managed to attract 50,000 signatures in just a few weeks, although it has been a more gradual increase since. At the time of publication, the change.org petition has attracted nearly 102,000 backers.


The petition also calls for Bed Bath & Beyond to remove MyPillow items from sale. However, since the petition was launched, Bed Bath & Beyond announced they have removed MyPillow products from its stores due to lack of demand, rather than the behavior of its CEO.

"We have been rationalizing our assortment to discontinue a number of underperforming items and brands. This includes the MyPillow product line," a spokesperson previously confirmed to Newsweek.

While a number of stores have pulled MyPillow items, major retailers such as Walmart, Costco and Amazon still sell the products.   Costco previously said it will continue selling MyPillow products because it has "contractual commitments to MyPillow that we intend to honor, as we seek to do with all of our suppliers."

Amazon and Walmart have been contacted for comment but failed to reply.



Presenting MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell’s Resume…

—  🏅Vegas Card Counter   🏅Former Drug Addict   🏅Jesus Freak   🏅Fake Chemist  —

—🏅  Fake Sleep Expert   🏅Scumbag and Professional Liar —  

—  🏅 Professional T-RUMP Advocate and Liar  —

Defends Himself…Mike Lindell says he expects to lose $65 million in pillow revenue this year because of retailer boycotts over his claims that the 2020 US election was rigged.  That projection, Lindell told Insider in an interview Monday after being served with a defamation lawsuit from Dominion Voting Systems seeking $1.3 billion in damages, is evidence he isn't pushing election-fraud claims for the money.

"I lost 20 retailers, and it's cost me $65 million this year that I won't get back, OK?" Lindell told Insider. "There's your story. Print it right. Don't try and twist this."

The 121-page lawsuit alleges the pillow mogul used conspiracy theories about the election to turbocharge sales for his company, using conspiratorial phrases as discount codes and placing expensive advertisements with like-minded media outlets.  "Lindell — a talented salesman and former professional card counter — sells the lie to this day because the lie sells pillows," Tom Clare, the defamation attorney representing Dominion Voting Systems, wrote in the lawsuit.


Dominion Says Lindell Used Conspiracy Theories To Sell More Pillows  —  Lindell has been an ardent supporter of former President Donald T-RUMP for years. A former professional gambler who overcame an addiction to crack, he credits his company's success to his aggressive advertising strategy, which pushed MyPillow's revenue to over $300 million in 2019.

Dominion’s lawsuit says that advertising strategy involves intertwining his personal brand and that of his company to juice sales.  MyPillow has spent tens of millions of dollars advertising on pro-Trump media outlets such as Fox News and Newsmax — both also targets of litigation over election falsehoods. After Trump lost the November election, Lindell falsely claimed Dominion rigged the election. MyPillow sponsored a “ arch for Trump" tour (which was actually a bus) in which Lindell spoke at rallies claiming the election was stolen.

Dominion alleges in the lawsuit that the conspiracy theories are a platform for Lindell to sell more pillows.  "After hitting the jackpot with Donald Trump's endorsement for MyPillow and after a million-dollar bet on Fox News ads had paid out handsome returns, Michael Lindell exploited another chance to boost sales: marketing MyPillow to people who would tune in and attend rallies to hear Lindell tell the 'Big Lie' that Dominion had stolen the 2020 election," Clare wrote.

Lindell told Insider that MyPillow's advertising strategy was distinct from his personal politics. He said MyPillow had advertising and sponsorship deals with the likes of CNN, MSNBC, The Washington Post, and The New York Times — all outlets he isn't a fan of — as well as about 5,000 podcasts and radio and TV stations.

"I advertise everywhere," he said. "And every spot either breaks even or makes money."
A representative for The Times told Insider it last ran MyPillow advertisements in 2015. The other media outlets Lindell named didn't immediately respond to requests for comment.

Lindell dismissed the notion that he had a "preconceived plan" to make money by claiming Dominion and Smartmatic, a rival election-technology company also implicated in conspiracy theories, rigged the presidential election. He said a retailer boycott from brands including Kohl's and Bed Bath & Beyond would cost him tens of millions of dollars in revenue. 

 "Those stores combined did $65 million in business last year," he said. "And now I won't have them this year, or any year. They’re done.


STRAIGHT PILLOW—TALK

SIDEBAR:  I was in a Kohl’s yesterday with my friend, whom I am a caregiver for and his overpriced pillows sell for 79.00 each and were discounted 50% and the salesgirl said she couldn’t wait for the last one to be sold… And they sell a lot of pillows and bedding. And get a lot of returns and complaints.

Pillows are a joke — Not only overpriced, returns, the trauma, but washing will kill any pillow, and people sweat at night and all the dirt from the day winds up on a pillow. And you breath it all night long.  

His popularity is not based on science but being a good con and saturation of the airwaves, no one else sells pillows on the TV and Americans being naive and not quite intelligent, fall for all sorts of pots and pans, pillows and car warranties on TV.  They suffer from TV-itus, naive, too much TV and they believe anything, just like how they vote.

And you breath it…. Pillows — I gave up washing them, I buy them on sale. I just bought six Serta’s for 30.00 dollars and have new ones every four months or so.  My laundromat wanted sixteen dollars to wash the pillows and mattress pad…  When changing the pillow cases weekly,  I use Febreze and a spray disinfectant like Lysol on the pillows and air dry them…in the sun on my terrace.   Less allergies that way…



Lindell Says He’s Just Trying To Save America  —  Keep Reading  — Following the January 6 insurrection at the US Capitol, where a pro-T-RUMP mob sought to stop Congress from certifying the election results, Lindell only doubled down on election-fraud claims.He met with T-RUMP in the Oval Office, taking notes with him apparently suggesting the president consider declaring martial law.   Lindell saving America is like Hitler saving the Jewish people by relocation…

He continued to push the theories in media appearances and funded a two-hour “ Docu-movie" based on them called "Absolute Proof." He, like T-RUMP before him, was eventually barred from Twitter. They should both be barred from breathing

He says he openly welcomes the lawsuit from Dominion, saying it would offer him an avenue to prove his claims of a rigged election.  “I am happy that I got served the papers today," Lindell said.  To bolster its claims that Lindell tied election-related conspiracy theories to MyPillow sales, Dominion’s lawsuit includes a dozen pages of social-media users saying they’re purchasing MyPillow products to support Lindell's election falsehoods. Which proves many Americans are frickin idiots

Basically the solution will be when they hang T-RUMP, make sure Mike is alongside. Rope is cheap and these morons with Oleander COVID cures might have killed thousands…  please read on and see what a creep this guy really is


Quote From True F*cking Morons — Morons or ScumBirds Flock Together —  

  • The Nitwit Who Can’t Spell Wrote On Twitter —-“Mike Lindell is a true Patriot and an American hero for standing up for the truth.   I’m buying more pillows using discount code NEWSMAX #ElectonFraudHappened #MikeLindell 

  • Another moron wrote —  “The Mypillow guy is being attacked by evil leftists. Go to mypillow.com and spend heavily,” another wrote.

  • Dominion’s lawsuit also claims Lindell used discount codes on his website that tied into right-wing conspiracy theories, including using "FightforTrump" as a discount code while Trump supporters literally fought officers at the Capitol and    “ Proof"  after broadcasting his "docu-movie."

  • But Lindell said advertising partners made those discount codes. “FightforTrump,” for example, was from a podcaster MyPillow worked with — one of the hundreds of radio hosts with which MyPillow has sponsorship deals.

  • He said that controversies over advertising typically increased sales for his company but that boycotts since January seemed poised to cause long-term damage to pillow sales.



“ The T-RUMP Oleander Conspiracy ”  

DEATH APPEARING LIVE AT A COVID INSPIRED NO-MASK RALLY NEAR YOU


Not Exactly The Three Tenors, More Like The Three Sinners

Their Reservations Were Accepted At Hell And Lucifer Mestopheles

Welcomes Them With Open Arms…And His Tail Held High…


Snake Oil Scumbags,  The Con-alition”  T-RUMP,  Mike Lindell,  Sec. Dr. Carson
(CNN) Former crackhead, professional card counter, born again Devout Moron and Certified Time Spent drug dealer, Evangelical nutcase, and Bullshitter… Mike Lindell (aka the “MyPillow Guy”) has long been one of Donald Trump’s staunchest allies.   He’s called T-RUMP the “ Greatest President” ever and suggested that T-RUMP was chosen by God for the role.  I think he’s still on crack….

And because T-RUMP likes people who like him, the President has been similarly complimentary of Lindell. “ Boy, do you sell those pillows," Trump told Lindell at an event at the White House in March.  Sounded more like a TV Commercial,  where the shill opens the dialog with “ Wow I didn’t know about these great pillows, tell me more”.

He sells a lot of overpriced bedroom stuff because no one else sells that stuff on TV, people believe TV, people are stupid… and pay double what they are worth.   Lindell’s pillow, which is touted for its comfort, and cost twice what a good one sells for, has made him a multimillionaire. Lindell has also claimed that T-RUMP has urged him to run for office.  Is it possible these two cons could work together?  

Why It Matters and Further Warning And Legal Action:
Senior administration official familiar with the internal conversations told Axios, “ The involvement of the Secretary of HUD and MyPillow.com in pushing a dubious product at the highest levels should give Americans no comfort at night about their health and safety during a raging pandemic.”  

Some of these T-RUMP followers are so dumb  they believe these untruths and they are dangerous.  So stupid they will try anything.  That why the warning is posted  T-RUMP was asked, then urged  FDA Commissioner Stephen Hahn to “look at” or speed up approval.  And he threw it out.   

Fortunately…FDA Commissioner Stephen Hahn, MD, had resisted any efforts around the compound. It’s deadly.
According to but Phoenix Biotechnology director Andrew Whitney has said if he can’t get Oleandrin to market as a drug, he’ll push for it as a dietary supplement. 

The thought of another potentially dangerous compound being touted as a “ Miracle cure" by the Trump administration, like hydroxychloroquine, had medical experts up in arms on Twitter on Monday.  "Oleandrin? Yeah that would definitely end up killing people," tweeted David Juurlink, MD, PhD, of Sunnybrook Health Sciences Center in Toronto.

Juurlink told MedPage Today that Oleandrin is “ Akin to digoxin. Too much can cause nausea, vomiting and diarrhea, but the main concern is arrhythmias, which can be fatal.”  Jennifer Gunter, MD, tweeted that it’s “  it’s easier to kill a person with oleandrin than COVID-19” and highlighted a case report in which two people were poisoned after eating snails that had munched on an oleander plant and an earlier case report calculated that 4 grams of oleander leaves would be fatal and highlighted a case report in which a patient committed suicide using oleander leaves. That paper estimates toxic blood levels of oleandrin at 1 to 2 ng/ml and a fatal blood level of 9.8 to 10 ng/mL.   


Leader is A Pure Poison  —  A true con-man Mike Lindell and a con president T-RUMP looking for a miracle. The  perfect storm. T-RUMP needs a winner.   T-RUMP has done more than just praise Lindell.  He allowed Lindell to take part in a July White House meeting why people are dying about the potential therapeutic properties of something called Oleandrin, an extract from the oleander plant while other people with good products don’t get that chance.  Alfred E. said “ Put a fuck-up in a room with aback of people and an hour later the other fuck-ups will 

Lindell told CNN of Trump's reaction to the extract and its possible uses, including as a potential therapeutic for coronavirus.   “He was enthusiastic, as he is on everything that’s going to help people,”.  Thats Himmler telling Hitler what a great job he’s doing and they brought Dr. “ Do Little” Carson along as the shill.    Neither Lindell nor T-RUMP are medical doctors or infectious disease experts.

Crackhead Meets Crackpot —  Object Crack Poison


Investigation: 
Just what we need quacks, con men, snake oil salesmen, inserting UV light into body cavities, and a whole bunch of other liars, bullshitters, frauds, and scumbags and thats just on Monday…  Add DIY hand Sanitizer with Methanol killed twenty,  Pool Cleaner used in and killed 4000 in Bolivia, and shoving a lightbulb T-RUMPS enlightening idea to kill COVID-19 internally by rectal flushing, we did not follow up on.   People just don’t like their Netherland played with.

FOLLOW THE MONEY:   Mike Lindell Was added to the board of (and received a financial stake in) Phoenix Biotechnology, which produced Oleandrin, earlier this month.   He’s still a con and would sell his soul again and again to T-RUMP because he knows T-RUMP is a whooping dumbass and an easy mark.  

Cons like Lindell are savvy ay playing people wit big egos…thats T-RUMP summed up in three letters…EGO   In an Interview Lindell told Axios that in the meeting,  T-RUMP “ basically said: …’The FDA should be approving it.'"  The White House did not respond to requests for comment. Usually means they are hiding something…

👺  Mike Lindell  - The Pillow Guy New Co-Conspiritorialist T-RUMP Cohort Asshole Of The Year
First it was Hydrochloroquionone, killed 200,000 in Brazil, T-RUMPS friend…whom he sent three million doses after it was stopped by the FDA,   then Lysol and then this schmuck comes up with an Extract of Oleander Which Is A Poison Second To Curare… He was a druggie in the past and a scumbag today, and took it to his friend, self purported scientist  and genius Donald T-RUMP who wanted it fast tracked by the FDA as a COVID cure…


Fortunately the FDA rejected the proposal instantly. Even with pressure from the imbicile President.  I can only imagine their scientists and professionals in the back room thinking —  “ Who dreamed up this sh*t” — “ What were they smoking” — “ Lindell must still be on drugs”  —  “Who got paid off, was it T-RUMP?”  —

His pillows are overpriced and not worth it…  KOHLS, Mayfair, Bed Bath and Beyond, HEB,  no longer will sell his products and more companies are expected… to drop his lines… he wanted to sell us on using Oleander and he as we say about those who are acolytes, Scum-birds of a feather, stick together…   T-RUMP and Lindell… Other companies and some on the air will not show his promo, he is a fraud… thats why he’s back on TV.  

MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell was permanently banned from Twitter on Monday night for "repeated violations of our Civic Integrity Policy," a Twitter spokesperson told CNN.

Between the lines:  Dominion Voting Systems has threatened to take legal action on Lindell over his spread of misinformation related to the 2020 election. The ban comes as he weighs a run for governor of Minnesota.

My Pillow CEO and ‘ Friend' of Donald Trump has settled over a dozen lawsuits for falsely claiming to be a sleep expert and saying his product alleviates medical conditions in his popular infomercials.

  • My Pillow chief executive Mike Lindell has settled more than a dozen lawsuits brought against him in eight different states, DailyMail.com can reveal 
  • He's been accused of fraudulent advertising and bogusly claiming to be an sleep expert in a string of federal lawsuits
  • Lindell  was front and center at a White House press conference Monday and was introduced by President Donald Trump as 'my friend' 
  • He gave a bizarre address from the Rose Garden podium in which he called for more religion in public schools and urged people to read the bible  
  • Lindell, who is worth about $300 million, is a reformed alcoholic and crack-cocaine addict, a Republican and a staunch T-RUMP supporter and liar.

Birds Of A Feather Pillow Screw People Together  —  The CEO who Donald T-RUMP introduced as ‘ My friend’ and invited to speak at a White House press conference, Monday, has been accused of fraudulent advertising and bogusly claiming to be an expert in a string of federal lawsuits, DailyMail.com can reveal.

My Pillow chief executive Mike Lindell delivered a bizarre address from the Rose Garden podium in which he called for more religion in public schools and urged people to read the bible during this time of self-isolation.

The conference centered on COVID-19 hospital equipment shortages and Lindell's is one of several businesses to have pledged help. He has offered to devote 75 percent of his workforce to manufacturing cotton masks and hopes to produce 50,000 a day by the end of the month.

SIDEBAR:    Notice how T-RUMP leans his head when others are speaking, crooked people do that a lot.

T-RUMP PRAISE:   The 58-year-old founder’s ‘ ff the cuff' cameo put My Pillow at the top of Twitter's trending column as Trump praised his patriotism and offered him the microphone with the words, 'Boy do you sell those pillows it's unbelievable what you do.'

But now, court filings obtained by DailyMail.com can reveal —  My Pillow chief executive Mike Lindell has settled more than a dozen lawsuits brought against him in eight different states, Mike Lindell spoke at a White House press conference Monday and was introduced by President Donald Trump as 'my friend'

They contain repeated allegations of fraudulent advertising, price inflating to 'dishonestly' promote 'Buy one get one free,' offers, falsely claiming to be a 'sleep expert,' and, the ultimate in fake news, using respected news outlet logos on his own website to mislead consumers into thinking they are endorsements.

The company's first infomercial which prominently featured its founder as an 'expert' aired in October 2011

Lindell's website has since removed the logos which included the New York Times and Wall Street Journal mastheads as well as USA Today and FOX Business – a show on which has often appeared.

But legal documents from a class action filed in California in 2016 in which he was accused of Fraudulent Inducement, violating a host of business and professions codes and unfair trade practices include a shot of the website in which they are clearly visible.

According to the lawsuit not only did Lindell ‘ deceptively and fraudulently use the logos of third-party news reporting entities on his website,’ he, ‘ alsely and deceptively represented to consumers that he (an imbecile)  is a ‘sleep expert.

Lindell, a reformed alcoholic and crack-cocaine addict who once spoke of going two weeks straight without sleep before his own drug dealer cut him off, has claimed that the idea for the company came to him in a dream in 2004.

Back then, the Minnesota born pillow magnet was a functioning cocaine addict. Then he discovered crack and his descent to rock bottom picked up pace.  Within five years he had lost his house, his marriage and very nearly his business.

He claims that on January 16, 2009 he offered up 'one prayer' - that he would wake up without craving the drug. He went to sleep and in the morning the desire was, 'just gone.'

The company's first infomercial which prominently featured its founder as an 'expert' aired in October 2011. And, according to the California lawsuit, material on the company website as recently as 2014 listed a string of medical conditions and ailments that the product bogusly claimed to alleviate. 

Bottom Line:  A Con Is A Con, Is A Con, Is A Con….etc
