Dominion Sues Lindell for $1.3B; Matthew Pottinger, Ex-National Security Advisor, says Chinese Flubbed Wuhan Virus Outbreak, Claims Years of Secret Tests; plus, Manufactured Home Investing, Stock Updates

DowJones2.22.2021ManufacturedHomeStockUpdatesBroaderMarketSnapshotMyPillow CEO Mike Lindell was reached by the left-of-center Washington Post Monday morning. Lindell said he was “very happy to hear” that Dominion Voting Systems has sued him.

Dominion Voting Systems hit MyPillow Chief Executive Officer Mike Lindell with a $1.3 billion defamation lawsuit Monday, claiming he defamed the company with false accusations that it had rigged the 2020 election for Joe Biden,” said right-of-center Newsmax.

Dominion is one of the largest makers of voting machines in the U.S., accuses the prominent supporter of former President Donald Trump of repeatedly echoing the “big lie” about election fraud in an effort to boost his business, despite knowing that no such fraud had occurred.

The complaint was filed in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. It claims that Lindell “sells the lie to this day because the lie sells pillows.” Among Dominion’s assertions is that that Lindell increased MyPillow sales as much as 40% pitching promotional codes for his products like “FightForTrump,” “45,” and “QAnon.”

Now I can get to the evidence faster,” Lindell told WaPo.It’s going to be amazing.” He added that he plans to continue releasing “more movies, more documentaries” about alleged 2020 election fraud.

Lindell said the video Absolute Proof has reached over 30 million viewers. Lindell’s video is posted on the report linked below.



The Dominion suit is the latest in a series of multibillion-dollar court actions taken by voting machine companies against high-profile supporters of President Donald J. Trump, including Rudy Giuliani, Sidney Powell, and Fox News.

Newsmax admitted today to using numerous disclaimers in an attempt to avoid similar litigation that has hit Fox, those already named by Dominion, or that has been threatened against One America News Network (OAN or OANN).



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,” Dominion CEO John Poulos said in a statement. “These claims have caused irreparable harm to Dominion’s good reputation and threatened the safety of our employees and customers.”

Lindell has paid a significant price for his activism on behalf of Trump’s election contest, with more than a twenty retailers announcing they were no longer offering MyPillow products for sale.

It is worth mentioning that Time’s reporter Molly Ball recently made a claim that ‘thousands” of Biden-Harris supporting companies and organizations were involved in the effort to keep President Trump from securing his 2nd term in office. Ball called it a secret conspiracy, but framed it as election integrity vs. election theft.

The Chinese Communist military was apparently doing animal experiments in the BL4 Wuhan Institute of Virology lab which was the likely an outbreak of flu-like illness in the fall of 2019, Matthew Pottinger, a deputy national security adviser to former President Donald Trump, said Sunday.

It has been called a “bombshell revelation” on CBS News’ “Face The Nation.” Pottinger said “the ledger on the side of the explanation that said [the outbreak] resulted from some kind of human error far outweighs the side of the scale that says this was some natural outbreak.” That noted, MHProNews reported months ago on evidence that the outbreak was in the fall, and not in December 2019, as many previously thought.

To see this graphic in a larger size, click here.

We have very strong reason to believe that the Chinese military was doing secret, classified animal experiments in that same laboratory, going all the way back to at least 2017,” Pottinger said.

We have good reason to believe that there was an outbreak of flu-like illness among researchers working in the Wuhan Institute of Virology in the fall of 2019, immediately before the first documented cases came to light.”

Pottinger said that the information declassified by the Department of State before President Trump left the White House was “very carefully” crafted — but unmistakable — that there was a COVID-like disease circulating in China in the autumn of 2019.

The case it was making was for following up on these important leads,” he said.


That too was something MHProNews reported weeks prior to this CBS News report. Furthermore, MHProNews informed readers that a Chinese national, Dr. Lin-Meng, was making similar allegations. She claimed documentary evidence for her claims. Much of the mainstream media ignored her.



This matters for several reasons. Day by day, MHProNews sources information carefully across the left-right divide, as this business nightly report dramatizes with our left-right news bullets. But we also use various ‘tests’ to try to discern what is likely true or merely hype or propaganda. On the Wuhan China Virus issue, our track record has been excellent, compared to numerous mainstream news sources.



We had about a dozen [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] officers in China,” Pottinger said, per a partial Newsmax transcript of his interview. “We had lots of CDC officers in the United States that deal with Chinese doctors. …They said this thing is not going to be like SARS. It is going to be like the 1918 flu pandemic because it is spreading silently.”

He said that U.S. officials “were a little bit too credulous.” But MHProNews took the issues seriously, while noting the various disconnects that were occurring since early on, and which arguably are still ongoing.


We were waiting to be fed information when we were not going to get that information,” he said. “They had a strong incentive to mislead their own public and the rest of the world about the nature of this virus.” Pottinger noted that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) didn’t turn to its country’s CDC to deal with the crisis — “they turned to their military.”

Our CDC did not have relations established with the Chinese military. So the director of the Chinese CDC, based on public reporting, didn’t know either… that this thing was circulating until the last day of December,” Pottinger said.


But he added there were early missteps in the United States as well — including the “misjudgment by public health officials in this country to not advocate for the widespread, generalized use of face coverings,” he said.

They feared shortages,” he said. “We put all of our mask-making supplies into, guess where, China. And China was not making it easy for us to get access to additional supplies. … It then made the mistake of inflating that with a set of advice that masks don’t work effectively for the general public. That was a big mistake.”
