    Yes. I’m going to sign a law that bans sanctuary cities. Also I’ve already issued an order cutting funding to sanctuary cities. #txlege

    This sums it up nicely. This will not end well for them. Can the demoncrat party get any worse than they are now? Leaderless and rudderless is no way to steer a path forward, or even backwards as it seems.

    2016 Recount: Jill Stein Cannot File Direct Request For Recount In Pennsylvania, Must Take It To Court

    Per Pennsylvania regulations, there is only one way remaining for Jill Stein to get a recount in Pennsylvania and it is a complicated process. Billy Penn reports that Stein would have to file for a court appeal and present a “prima facie case” showing that voter fraud took place. While prima facie has a lower burden of proof threshold than “beyond reasonable doubt,” it is still significant. Stein would have to prove in court that fraud was “probable.” This is going to be very difficult given that even the computer specialists recommending the recount say there is no proof of hacking or fraud.

    OK. Here’s a possible strategy they might be pursuing.

    They delay the recount, invalidating the 3 states’ electoral votes and pushing the decision into the House of Representatives. A group of Democrat electors then faithlessly cast electoral votes for another Republican, like Jeb or Mitt. Under the Constitution, the President must be chosen from the top three persons receiving electoral votes. In the house the Democrats all vote for the alternate Republican, and court a handful of House Republicans to join them in the “bipartisan compromise” candidate. Result: a GOPe Republican becomes President instead of Trump.

    I won’t rest easy until these three states are freed up to properly cast their electoral votes.

      I feel the same unease. Those in power risk losing control over billions (just look at how much the Clinton Foundation is losing now in “donations”), plus the possibility of prison
      (think: what is now being revealed with America’s version of the Jimmy Savile pedophile scandal). They can try to use a corrupt judiciary, a sympathetic press, and corrupted election returns, to foist a change of the outcome.

      This is their only bargaining chip. They were never going to just roll over and give up, and this is the proof of it. I think we will come through safe into harbor on Jan. 20, but it’s going to be stormy seas and require a competent pilot to get us there.

      If this scenario has any validity, then it might be a good reason NOT to propose Mitt as Sec. of State, until AFTER Trump has been selected by the Electoral College. Otherwise, Trump would be shooting himself in the foot by putting forward someone to whom the democrats could then point and say, See, even Trump thinks he is a good and well-qualified man…

      get after it, kick this deal to the curb for all of us.
