Green Party Fleeces Sheeple and Files for Recount in Wisconsin…

The difference between the Democrat and Republican party has always been the distinction between one side who will do anything, say anything, manipulate anything, and fight to the death to get their way – and the other party being polite Republican surrender monkeys.

Pelosi Gavel

Any intellectually honest observer didn’t need to look any further than the construct of ObamaCare in 2009/2010 to find the legislative representation of this political truism.

Or perhaps a person might remember the leftist takeover of the Wisconsin capitol building because they lost the 2010 election.  Further still remember the newly minority Wisconsin Democrats actually fleeing the state and attempting to disrupt the legislative session simply by refusing to participate.

The Jill Stein filing for a recount in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania is simply an extension of this aforementioned behavior.   The goal is not to change the election outcome, that possibility is beyond absurd, the goal is Alinsky opposition: create mayhem, cause angst, create disruption, seed doubt, undermine, isolate, marginalize the opponent. These moonbat behaviors are simply the antagonistic leftists fulfilling the nature of their ideology.

Wisconsin TeacherThe professional left even acknowledges that fundraising to advance these challenges is essentially a scam.   However, it’s a scam that has benefits even in its futility.

Leftist messaging and narrative building has two consistent theme:

  • #1 – Make the minute scale of radical leftist support/association seem larger than it is by amplifying visibility and dominating the messaging.
  • #2 – Make the minute scale of radical support/association (the loons) of your opposition seem larger than they are by amplifying visibility and dominating the messaging.

jill-stein(Via Reuters) Wisconsin’s election commission said on Friday it had received petitions for a recount of votes in the presidential election from the Green Party campaign and another candidate and was planning to start the process.

“The Commission is preparing to move forward with a statewide recount of votes for President of the United States, as requested by these candidates,” Commission Administrator Michael Haas said in a statement on the agency’s website.

The move follows comments by Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein earlier on Friday that her push for election recounts in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania was aimed at assessing the integrity of the U.S. voting system, not at undermining Republican Donald Trump’s White House victory.

While Stein’s effort this week may have spurred hope among disappointed supporters of Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, the chances of such recounts – if they take place – overturning the overall result from the Nov. 8 election are extremely slim, given Trump’s margins of victory in the three states.

Since launching the recount campaign on Wednesday, Stein has raised more than $5 million. The Green Party said it wants to raise $7 million for the recounts, including the cost of legal fees.

The Green Party has said that despite the millions it has raised to fund the recounts, it could not guarantee any would occur and that if its requests were denied or there were surplus funds, it would use the money to push for voting system reforms.

Stein, who won just 1 percent of the national vote herself, told CNN that while there was no evidence of tampering or other voting errors in the election, only a full review in those states would give Americans confidence in the results.

“This was a hack-riddled election,” she said, pointing to hacking before the vote of political organizations and individual email accounts, as well as recent media reports citing concerns by computer security experts.

The deadline to request the Wisconsin recount was Friday afternoon, while for Pennsylvania the deadline is Monday and for Michigan Wednesday.

Wisconsin’s Haas said that with a federal deadline of Dec. 13 to complete the recounts, county boards of canvassers might have to work evenings and weekends.

The other petitioner for a recount in the state was third-party candidate Rocky Roque De La Fuente, the commission statement said.

Although Trump won narrowly in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania, the margins make it highly unlikely that any recounts would end up giving Clinton a win in all three states, which would be needed for the overall presidential election result to change. Trump beat Clinton in Pennsylvania by 70,010 votes, in Michigan by 10,704 votes and in Wisconsin by 27,257 votes.

The presidential race is decided by the Electoral College, or a tally of wins from the state-by-state contests, rather than by the popular national vote. The Electoral College results are expected to be finalized when electors meet on Dec. 19.  (read more)

    I find this very disturbing. A recount if there is a reason is OK, but when it is not for a reason is bad. Election results need a finality in order for the Republic to work correctly. When the election in question is for the POTUS, when we have so many Solders, Sailor, and Marines in harms way, it is IMHO treasonous.

    I feel the Green Party is doing this to raise funds, build up name recognition and develop a list of supporters. They are also trying to get rid of Paper Ballots, when they talk about instant runoff and preference voting, only a electronic DRE (Direct Recording Equipment) machine can record all that. Upon the recount, their will be a very small “RESIDUAL VOTE” found due to the not perfect optical scanning process. Optical scan is not perfect but so much better then the DRE machines

    Their calls to have a national standard voting machine is very troubling. They claim use of “open source” code will make it secure, is just WRONG (did not swear). Open Source code means it is only the higher level code, which has to be compiled by a potentially insecure compiler and then transported somehow to the end machine. It ignores that any real grognog hacker could use low level code that can be hidden in many places in the machine to do it business, as trillions are at stake fake chips can be made for any electronic DRE. DRE must not be used period; the user verification DRE have also issues.

        I’d also like to see all vote totals conveyed at exactly the same time. That way, you won’t have the possibility of ballot-box stuffing when they know more votes are needed. There can be no communication with others by election officials who have the vote totals on hand until they’ve been sent. Violation of any of this gets them a 10-year mandatory sentence.

        I think destroying the ballots after a couple weeks like it is now in most states is correct. We need to have the election accepted with finality.

        I think the problem is not the penalty on the books, most places it is a felony with like 5 years in prison for each violation, but that the penalty is not applied, sentience guide lines are needed. If a non citizen votes they and all their non citizen family should be shown the door and sent back where they came from. If a dead person votes illegally, they should also be sent back where they came from. 🙂

    • It was very close in a number of states, Izap. That is reason enough. If Stein follows the rules and pays the fees, she has the right to a second look at the ballots. She was a candidate, and was told she had zero votes in states where she knows she had some. The recounts are happening before the deadlines for certification. It could uncover vulnerabilities or outside hacking attempts. I don’t see a downside. Don’t you want the victory to be double-verified?

    My perspective is a little different on this: Jill has amassed an incredible amount of cash in a very short time. It appears to be more money than she procured during her entire campaign. The money came in steady, even increments, most likely from a bot. The funds were tracked down to George Soros. Not organic Greenies. For whatever reason, Hillary wants us to put the blame on Stein, and Jill has agreed.
    The three states chosen are claiming a “recount” to throw off Trump supporters. We are so busy gloating, that we are not paying attention. Our kneejerk reaction is to scoff, because we think in terms of sheer numbers, and we are quite confident in those. But this is not the grift Hillary is running. What she is actually doing is hoping to “revise’ the way the votes are tabulated. In certain counties, the DNC has noticed a disparity between the paper votes for Hillary, and the electronic votes for Hillary, to the tune of a 7% differential (and you thought they were comparing Hillary vs. Trump votes). They are claiming that this differential is evidence of RACISM! To make it fair, the votes should be leveled up to make them even. When this “leveling up” occurs, Hillary wins these states, and she wins the election. All it takes is a few crooked calls, from a few crooked judges. I am not saying that she has this in the bag. I still believe it is ours to lose. But we are crazy to be ignoring this. Also pay close attention to the fact that MSM has been sharpening up their sabers against Russia again. They are preparing for a war with Russia, assuming their queen bee will be successful with her coup.

    I guess I am naive, because I don’t see this as a move to get Clinton in the WH. That ship sailed. Not only that, but recounts are very unlikely to increase the Clinton margin. The Dem party must be squirming because there’s a good chance a recount will expose voter fraud, and let’s not forget that the RNC was anti-Trump until close to the end. Chances of voter fraud by Republicans = ~0. The GOPe did not want Trump to win.

    Stein wants to increase her relevance. She could pretty easily have taken Bernie’s place as the “outsider” in the primaries. She didn’t because she had very little visibility to the public. She’s attractive, a woman, well-spoken, and the natural home of all the granola-eating eco-warriors is with her, not with Bernie. She probably saw all “her” voters flocking to Bernie and was thinking they could have been her voters. She may be right on this. They only went to Bernie because he looked like the most viable of the “not Hillary Clinton” democrat candidates.

    To get them on her side early (in 2020?) she needs to have campaign funds to get her face out there earlier. She doesn’t have any funds because she’s the Green Party.

    Stein is probably seeing the fracturing of the Dem party (just as we are) and is thinking there’s an opportunity for her to gain significant leverage…..if only she had the money/recognition to do so.

    So she’s using the angst of the cry-baby Dems as a tool to achieve her goals. She gets her face in the news with this recount. She gets them to donate to the cause, and keeps moving the bar higher until she’s sucked them dry of as much money as possible. Stein is probably thrilled with the amount she’s getting. She was probably just hoping for some exposure with the recount. But the money coming in gives her additional opportunities to collect a bank for the next election.

    She then files for a recount in a state (she probably will have to). That will cost her around 2.5 million dollars, but it will be “worth it” to her to get her the media exposure she needs. The rest is gravy that she will use to keep her face in the news.

    Why would Soros help her? He has his own evil plan. Maybe he sees the Green Party as a more viable route to the WH than the existing Dem party. Maybe Soros agrees that Trump will move minorities to the Rep party, and now he’s going to have to bank on the eco-warriors to achieve his goals. The blubbering protestor “true believers” were mainly granola-eaters (riots may have included more minorities, but rioting doesn’t achieve his ends). What he wants are people who “believe” in a “righteous” cause, not people who damage businesses and piss everyone off.

    So, Danger Will Robinson, we may be looking at the emergence of a more powerful Green Party, but this looks like a fight between the Greens and the Dems, not the Dems and the Reps.

    Just my take. Feel free to pick apart what I said. I’m interested in what you think.

So, the nutty “statisticians” approach them, convince them there is a “hook” to get a foot in the door, and lo and behold, a week later Stein has money to recount in three states out of 50, states that would hand it to HRC. Why Stein?

    My question is what have these Dems been doing since the election. Have they messed with the ballots or the machines in preparation for recounts? I have no idea whether this is even possible, but I wouldn’t put it past them. Are they starting with Wisconsin in hopes of using the “fraud” they find there (planted by them?) to manufacture “proof” to present to officials/courts in the other two states? I hope I’m giving these Dems more credit for stealing elections than they deserve.

    The media’s been doing a terrible job reporting on this. I’ve been trying to find articles that give a clear picture of what Stein has to do to get a recount in Michigan and Pennsylvania, to no avail. If reporters just called up an elections lawyer, they could have the info in 15 minutes. Why hasn’t this been done? I did read that in Pennsylvania you do have to show some evidence of fraud or such, but the specifics about this are missing. I haven’t seen anything about how you get a recount approved in Michigan, but it doesn’t seem to be automatic like Wisconsin. Does anyone know?

    Of course, Stein and the Dems know why they’re doing this and have the entire scenario mapped out. They’ve been planning this for weeks. Have they been messing with the results in these states, or is this just a way to delegitimize Trump? I watched the election heist involving Rep. West in Florida very closely and was shocked by what I saw from beginning to end. I was also shocked that the media did not report the situation fully or accurately. After seeing that go down, I’d put nothing past the Dems.

Once the ballots are counted they are placed back into the boxes and sealed and stored in the County Treasurer’s office under cameras for the length of time required by Federal Law; which if I remember right, is two years for an election with Federal contests and six months otherwise. There is a positive chain of custody at all times.

Usually, there is a Democrat, a Republican and either a Green or a Libertarian and sometimes all four. If a problem is found the ballot goes to a special board as required by State law.

    I oppose those touch screen digital voting machines, they are known to have glitchy touch screens and are easily hacked. Paper ballots using fill in the bubble are the best solution. There are no hanging chads, etc. They can be scanned and to avoid machine error, easily scanned 4 times in a row. Reject invalid ballots that are ambiguous, if a bubble isn’t filled in completely have 4 humans check it by hand. If done correctly, it may just reduce Hillary’s vote count!

    There is a lot of time to go before PE Trump is sworn in. My gosh, every day more evil rears its ugly head. I hope and pray each day for this country and that PETrump, his transition team and all of his supporters are strong enough to defeat these forces. God bless us all.

    My question is how does Stein have standing? She did not win one state, she was not even a runner up in one state ; so a recount does her absolutely no good. Is she trying to say that her followers decided to change their mind after they voted? If she is capable of raising 4 million in 24 hours for a recount then she easily could have raised a billion in a year for her campaign.

    Ridiculous!

      She has zero chance of winning. Additionally her petition for recount is premised on conjecture, exaggerations, distortions, and lies. For example:

      Item 8 in Halderman’s affidavit is pure conjecture surrounding a set of hypothetical events
      In item 6 he exaggerates the DNI-DHS statement, claiming “The Department of Homeland Security has stated that senior officials in the Russian government commissioned these attacks.” The DNI-DHS statement does not claim there is evidence that Russia directed or conducted attacks, specifically stating “we are not now in a position to attribute this activity to the Russian Government.” DNI & DHS believe attacks are “consistent with methods and motivations”. Methods and motivations are not proof of actions.
      In item 6 he distorts Podesta’s e-mail compromise characterizing it as being “broken into” when Podesta himself clicked on spam and entered his password. (See a Salon article dated October 21, 2016 “hillary-clinton-campaign-chariman-john-podestas-email-was-hacked-because-he-clicked-on-a-phishing-link”)

      Note well: Podesta’s email has nothing whatsoever to do with Wisconsin or any other state’s voting systems. This is simply an attempt to prey upon the public mind casting fear, uncertainty, and doubt into it.

      In item 6 he lies about Arizona’s voter registration systems being breached.

      Conjecture, exaggerations, distortions, and lies are nothing to premise a recount on.

      Her petition should be denied as frivolous.

    • Stein was a candidate, and on the ballot in all these states. That gives her legal standing to make challenges. It doesn’t matter if she has any chance of winning or not. She can argue they didn’t count her party’s votes, and demand a review of all ballots. I agree there’s probably outside funding, but it doesn’t actually matter who pays the fees. All that matters is paying them, and filing in time and according to the rules of each state.

  26. In the 2012 election, there were voters in the inner cities publicly bragging about having voted multiple times. Their penalty, free media air time. They were Democrats.

    She was always behind this IMO, using Stein as her lackey. Something very sinister is afoot. They’re trying to steal the election or at the very least diminish Trump’s mandate. These are evil people and will do anything, ANYTHING for power.

    If they’re going to recount, lets include states Hillary won by small margins, like say Nevada. Or how about we recount California, what do you think her margin of victory would have been without the illegal vote?

    I knew this was going to get nasty very quickly, there was no reason for Stein to ask for a recount, this is all Hillary. I hope our President Elect and his team are all over this.
