Lars Larson Critical of Sidney Powell’s Comments

Larson’s comment came after Powell urged conservative voters to boycott the Senate run-off elections in Georgia, which will decide the balance of power in the legislature’s upper chamber.

It’s not often that a conservative radio host openly criticizes another conservative who supports President Trump. But Lars Larson, host of The Lars Larson Show on KXL in Portland, Oregon, did just that Thursday night when he called President Trump lawyer and ally Sidney Powell “crazy”.  Larson’s comment came after Powell urged conservative voters to boycott the Senate run-off elections in Georgia, which will decide the balance of power in the legislature’s upper chamber.

“I very much admire Sidney Powell and the work she has done on behalf of the President on a clearly fraudulent election,” Larson said. “But boycotting the elections in Georgia until elections are deemed secure, is a step too far. It’s crazy… It effectively gift wraps the two senate races and the entire Senate to Democrats, as well.”

Larson’s guest, Rick Manning President of American’s For Limited Government, agreed.

“You are not wrong,” Manning said. “If there are systemic problems in voting systems, it’s not going to be fixed in three or four days. We won’t get to the bottom of this until November or March (elections) of 2022. Elector certification is going to be made in the next four days. There isn’t time to mess around with this. She (Powell) just needs to be quiet and let us win the elections in Georgia.”

Larson then offers Powell advice to what she should have said.

“If she had said, number one, we are going to lay the law down on ballot harvesting, and number two, we are going to allow observers in every voting site, that would have an effect. Boycotting the election does not accomplish anything.”

Manning adds that Powell “has been working so hard and is tired, that what sounded like a good idea to say at the time, is not such a good idea now”.

Larson’s and Manning’s criticism of Powell highlight a growing divide among conservatives over President Trump’s refusal to concede the election. Georgia Senatorial candidate David Perdue appeared to privately admit that President-Elect Joe Biden won the election, which caused the hashtag #Perduesaysbidenwon to become a trending topic nationally on Twitter Friday morning. Conversely, President Trump’s staunchest supporters, including many in conservative talk radio, believe the election is fraudulent and they do not consider Mr. Biden as the President-Elect.

The Senate run-off elections in Georgia are set to take place January 5, 2021.

Salem Media is starting to recoup the $4.5 million investment in Dinesh D’Souza’s documentary “2000 Mules,” the movie that alleges voting fraud during the 2020 presidential election, per The Wrap

The controversial movie debuted initially in 270 theaters rented by the film’s producers for one week with one showing per day. Also, on May 20th, D’Souza’s flick returned for regular theatrical release in 411 movie houses with four showings a day, including at least 169 Cinemark locations.

“With the success of the movie, everyone talking about the movie, a lot of independent theaters began to call us, ‘Hey, why didn’t we have this movie in the theater?’” D’Souza said.

In its opening weekend as a theatrical release, “2000 Mules” grossed $751,755. Furthermore, it’s also available as an on-demand digital movie on the video streaming platform Rumble. 

“It’s too early in the movie release window to properly estimate where Q2 revenue for this film will end up, but we are pleased with the results to date and certainly expect to make a solid profit from Salem’s investment in this movie,” Santrella said.
