Skip to comments.Michigan Halts Vote Recount Squashing Hopes Of Clinton Supporters, Trump is 45th President

A federal judge ruled late Wednesday night that the Michigan recount should immediately be halted. The judge noted that the recount was a waste of taxpayer money as there was no proof of fraud or mistakes presented by Jill Stein or the Green Party. US District Judge Mark Goldsmith noted that a recount as an audit of an election with no proof of fraud has never been endorsed by any court and that Michigan will be no exception. However, Recount 2016 leader Jill Stein says the ruling was disheartening.
CNN reports that a federal judge squashed all hopes of a Clinton presidency once and for all on Wednesday evening. Judge Mark Goldsmith ruled to uphold longstanding recount laws by denying Jill Stein a recount as a form of election audit. While Jill Stein is a Green Party advocate and leader, many Hillary Clinton supporters jumped on the Recount 2016 train on the hopes that Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania election results could be overturned, resulting in a Clinton presidency....

It is GREAT.
And it is my civic duty.
The trek to PA gets tiring after a while!
I shall investigate the process this instant.
Finding four character references aint gonna be that easy.
I’m known to be a little off my rocker. But I’ve mellowed in 48 years :)
"Hillary and I are actually the same person....that's why you never see us together."
“Finding four character references aint gonna be that easy.”
Wait...you need four character references to buy a gun in New York?
Me and brother looked into just in case hitlery got elected.
The paperwork and required documentation was STAGGERING.
But I will start the process even though I gave up when I saw the demands.
...you are asked to supply 3 reference letters from people that have known you for at least 2 years.. The letter should state that you are of good moral character....
That’s old. You need four and it’s five years now.
“....you are asked to supply 3 reference letters from people that have known you for at least 2 years.. The letter should state that you are of good moral character....”
That’s a clear infringement of your 2nd Amendment rights. New Yorkers need to start pounding on their state legislators about this.
Bad gun laws have been overturned in many states, but it takes constant pressure to do so.
Dig in for the long haul. Your kids and grandkids will thank you for it.
The MUCH BETTER chance is Trump and the repubs ENFORCE an amendment!!! It’s the 2nd amendment!!
States should have VERY little say in your owning a gun.
Neither should the feds, but it’s the only way to beat the states.
Actually, she didn’t concede till almost mid-day.
That early morning hours was podesta at 3am telling everyone to go home.
(I speculate that she had gone on a drinking binge earlier, and was zonked out...and it took till midday to sober her up)
All of the progress in gun rights (and there’s been a lot) over the last quarter century, has been made at the state level. About the only help we’ve gotten from the feds, is when Congress has resisted new anti-gun legislation from the Dems.
The Judicial branch delivered on Heller vs DC, but the Executive branch hasn’t done squat to help us. Maybe that’ll change, now that we have a president who’s a gun rights advocate.
At the end of the day, though, the state legislatures are where all the action is. Mash on those critters in Albany.
Thanks for the answers !
(good grief, that’s a lot to go thru...)
I had gone to bed by then as Pennsylvania was finally announced and pulled Trump past 270. I was a poll worker and had been up since 5:15 am that morning, so I was very tired. Elated, but exhausted.
However, I do seem to recall on the morning news the next morning, the replays of her concession were somewhat equivocal and there was an appearance announce for later in the morning which made it clear.
So your version was spot on.
