      Yeah, Stein’s stirring the compost. Money’s pouring in to her efforts, one wonders from whom, and she’s nearly doubled the contributions to fund the recount as she the donations to fund her campaign.
      Hillary’s campaign has already said they’re unofficially interested in officially joining in. Probably trying to avoid the ‘spoiled sport’ label well as irritating Trump after her conceding and his generous offer to let her walk rather than have a special prosecutor give her just desserts. Most of these recount efforts fail and were these efforts to fail and Hillary to be standing there with dirty hands after getting that ‘get out of jail’ card…well, it just might negate the original deal.
      We’ve entered the thick of the battle for America’s soul and the cancerous Democrats, Greens, progressives of all stripes and there assorted hangers-on will battle to the death to destroy it and us.

        Interesting read…

        I donโ€™t know a lot about the Green Party, but from what I can see theyโ€™re another far left Socialist party. Tree hugging stoners that want Big Government to limit YOUR carbon footprint. With free abortions and college tuition for all!

        But hereโ€™s the odd thing. I went through the state totals (at CNN and at USA Today). I set a criteria for finding โ€œcloseโ€ states where voting shenanigans could have made a difference. I used the parameters of ( less than a 75,000 vote count difference that was also less than a 12% difference ) and/or ( a difference of <= 0.5% regardless of vote count difference ). This is what I found:

        Close states that went to Clinton:
        Maine, 4 proportioned electoral votes, Clinton ahead by 20K votes (3 electoral votes given to Clinton, 1 to Trump)
        Minnesota, 10 electoral votes, Clinton by 44K votes
        Nevada, 6 electoral votes, Clinton by 27K votes
        New Hampshire, 4 electoral votes, Clinton by 3K votes
        New Mexico, 5 electoral votes, Clinton ahead by 65K (margin was 8.3%, 64,849 votes)
        Delaware, 3 electoral votes, Clinton ahead by 50K (margin was 11.5% but only 50,478 votes)

        total 31-32 electoral votes, 208K votes in these 6 states

        Close states that went to Trump:
        Michigan, 16 electoral votes, 10.7K votes
        Pennsylvania, 20 electoral votes, 68K votes
        Wisconsin, 10 electoral votes, 27K votes

        total 46 electoral votes, 105.7K votes in 3 states

        In terms of the number of human votes cast, New Hampshire was closest, followed by Michigan, then Maine, Nevada, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Delaware, New Mexico, and finally Pennsylvania.

        While Alaska went to Trump by only 37.4K, that was 15.2%. Arizona just misses my parameters with Trump up 85K votes.

        So why isnโ€™t the Green Party pushing for recounts in the 3 or 4 closest states, and instead pushing for Pennsylvania, which had the largest vote margin of any of these 9 states? Especially given the election day crap weโ€™ve seen before in Minnesota (Al Franken anyone?) Fairness? Honest elections? Horse apples.

        Theyโ€™re gunning for Trump, and only for Trump, and doing it as a favor for their fellow Progressives in the DNC so the she-beast doesnโ€™t take the rap. Itโ€™s obvious.

        Hereโ€™s the link for Michigan going to Trump, finally. Yet itโ€™s still only semi-official. Good grief. This provisional ballot stuff sucks. Time to change the rules: register well ahead of time or you donโ€™t get to vote. Oh, youโ€™re moving right before election day? Fine, then you absentee vote before you move. Period.

      Each had more to lose from revolution than he had to gain by it. John Hancock, one of the richest men in America, already had a price of 500 pounds on his head. He signed in enormous letters so that his Majesty could now read his name without glasses and could now double the reward. Ben Franklin wryly noted: “Indeed we must all hang together, otherwise we shall most assuredly hang separately.”

      Fat Benjamin Harrison of Virginia told tiny Elbridge Gerry of Massachusetts: “With me it will all be over in a minute, but you, you will be dancing on air an hour after I am gone.”

      These men knew what they risked. The penalty for treason was death by hanging. And remember, a great British fleet was already at anchor in New York Harbor.
      They were sober men. There were no dreamy-eyed intellectuals or draft card burners here. They were far from hot-eyed fanatics yammering for an explosion. They simply asked for the status quo. It was change they resisted. It was equality with the mother country they desired. It was taxation with representation they sought. They were all conservatives, yet they rebelled.

    Funny how the “fake news sites” scandal only spontaneously erupted on the fake news MSM about a day after Pizzagate broke.

    https://theintercept.com/2016/11/26/washington-post-disgracefully-promotes-a-mccarthyite-blacklist-from-a-new-hidden-and-very-shady-group/

    The MSM is panicking and flailing, sinking in quicksand.

    Anyone who doesn’t have a television bezel around their smiling mug, anyone who doesn’t sit at a nice steel and glass desk with graphics over their shoulder while they read a teleprompter, and anyone who doesn’t have several mansions is a purveyor of “fake news”.

    “Hands up! Don’t Shoot!” is real news. Heh.

    These people are panicking, and they should be.

    lilbirdee12โ€™s prayer:
    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil. Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.
    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence as they seek to lead America back to You.
    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.
    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.
    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen

    I have been racking my brain trying to figure out the recount nonsense. There is no way Hilary can steal the votes and delegates she needs to stage a successful coup but she can certainly be an annoying thorn in the side of Trump and get the more emotional based Trump supporters running around in circles.

    Finally a ๐Ÿ’กwent on. I believe the ever arrogant, entitled Hillary is so used to having all the power, so used to intimidating people, so used to holding all of the cards that she blindly and ignorantly thinks she still has a card play.

    My guess is HRC is angling for a โ€œgentleman’s agreementโ€ from Trump that if she doesnโ€™t challenge the election results DOJ wonโ€™t indict her. Or as attorney’s would say HRC is mounting a nuisance suit.
