    DANVILLE, Pa. — Hillary Clinton knows a thing or two about pain. Not just the soul-piercing kind that comes from losing to an opponent after describing yourself as the last thing standing between Americans and the apocalypse. The broken-foot kind. The former Democratic presidential candidate, U.S. senator and secretary of state walked gingerly across the stage at the “From Crisis to Cure” healthcare symposium at the Geisinger Medical Center campus on Thursday after having fractured her foot in October during her book tour in London. The overriding lesson she has learned from studying — and using — the world’s healthcare...

    Duane Miller realized at the “very last minute” last November that he was going to vote for a candidate he didn’t much like, Donald Trump. He did not even really vote for Trump, to hear him describe it. Instead, he voted against Washington fecklessness and corruption, which he saw as embodied by Hillary Clinton, in his eyes the ultimate establishment candidate, who was doubtlessly going to win anyway, he thought. “I thought there was no way that Trump could beat Hillary, right up till the end,” said Miller. “Right up to the night before.” That was almost a year ago,...

    TURKEYTOWN, Pa. — Just as you crest the hill along the Glades Pike highway heading east, a red-white-and-blue "Drain the Swamp" sign sits on the well-manicured lawn of a sprawling home in this western Pennsylvania town likely named for the abundance of the wild game that flourish in the region. A year ago, a Trump-Pence sign sat in just about the same place at the same house in the same lawn. A few miles down the road, a tri-colored sign in green, blue, and orange sits in front of a shuttered business bearing a simple message in three languages: "No...

    A man described by neighbors as “quarrelsome” and who placed large anti-Trump signs in his yard is in police custody for the murder of his next-door neighbor – a GOP committeeman. Police in West Goshen Township, PA, charged Clayton Carter, 51, in the shooting death of his next-door neighbor, G. Brooks Jennings in the early morning hours on Tuesday, according to ABC Philadelphia. The conflict began on Monday evening when police officers responded to a dispute between Carter and Jennings that involved cursing and video recording in one of their backyards. Police de-escalated the conflict around 8 p.m. and left....

    When given the choice between attending the White House Correspondents dinner — a swampy D.C. event brimming with uber-rich, out-of-touch media elites — or headlining a rally jam-packed with the kind of real working-class Americans who elected him to the White House, our new president chose the latter. President Trump’s bold decision proved once again that he’s not just a brilliant businessman — he also has excellent political instincts. Why should the president attend a high-profile media event aimed at giving gravitas and ratings to a hyper-partisan industry that has covered his campaign, transition and first 100 days with an...

    (Video-Compilation of protesters removed from Trump's rally) A number of protestors were forcefully removed from the New Holland Arena in the Farm Show & Expo Center while President Donald Trump spoke Saturday night. Pennsylvania State Troopers and the Capitol Police had a busy night as they were forced to secure and remove a number of protestors from inside the rally. No information has been provided about any pending criminal charges for those that were removed. The first person to be removed was screaming "Trump is a traitor!" The man, who has yet to be identified, began screaming and waving a...

    The Philadelphia Inquirer ^ | April 17, 2017 | Aaron Blake, The Washington Post
    The New York Times reported Monday that a key congressional district in Pennsylvania isn't thrilled with its choice of voting for Donald Trump for president. The 8th District outside Philadelphia is a quintessential suburban swing district that has the unusual distinction of voting for both Trump and Mitt Romney by the narrowest of margins the past two elections. Hence the New York Times Treatment. The headline of the piece is "Trump Voters in a Swing District Wonder When the 'Winning' Will Start." A sampling: Usually, this pathway outside Parx Casino is reserved for self-flagellation, a private lament at the last...

Copies of the Federalist Papers and other books urging political courage are being mailed to their homes. They are even getting phone calls in the middle of the night. Such has been the life of Pennsylvania's 20 electors for President-elect Donald Trump since the Nov. 8 election. On Monday, they will travel to the state Capitol to cast their votes to assign Pennsylvania's 20 electoral votes to Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence during what has, in the past, been a ceremonial...

    And then there was only Wisconsin. As widely expected, US District Court Judge Paul S. Diamond denied a demand from Jill Stein to order a statewide recount in Pennsylvania. Time had run out on that option, Diamond ruled, and he did not want to “disenfranchise some six million Pennsylvania voters.” A federal judge rejected a Green Party-backed request to recount paper ballots in Pennsylvania’s presidential election, won by Republican Donald Trump, and scan some counties’ election systems for signs of hacking. So far, no publication of the order has emerged, but this outcome was all but certain on Friday. The...

    PHILADELPHIA — A judge is rejecting a Green Party-backed effort to allow software experts to inspect Philadelphia's election systems for any evidence that hacking affected the result of Pennsylvania's Nov. 8 presidential election. The judge's refusal Wednesday comes after Philadelphia's election board rejected the idea, too. It is part of a broader effort by Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein to recount votes in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, states where Republican Donald Trump won narrowly over Democrat Hillary Clinton...

    Dr. Jill Stein, along with her campaign staff and fellow Green Partiers, came all the way to Trump Tower this morning to blast his “anti-verification campaign” and tell him to stop spreading false information her recount efforts in three swing states. Early Monday morning, the Stein campaign announced that a federal judge in Michigan granted the campaign’s emergency request to immediately start the statewide recount. On Nov. 28, the campaign said Pennsylvanian voters filed recount requests in more than 260 precincts across the state and two days ago that it would file for emergency relief in federal court to demand...

    he Green Party is dropping its lawsuit to request a statewide recount of the election results in Pennsylvania. The Associated Press reported on Saturday that the party said it could not come up with a $1 million bond payment required by the court by Monday, when a hearing was scheduled. A court order filed Saturday called the matter "closed" after it said that petitioners had filed to withdraw the case. The Green Party had questioned whether voting machines had been hacked or manipulated

    Pennsylvania court on Saturday accepted the Green Party’s request to end its case seeking a statewide recount — a move that ends any remaining doubt, however slight, about whether Donald Trump is the victor in the 2016 presidential race. Most — including Hillary Clinton’s campaign — expected Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein’s recount efforts in Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin not to change the result in any of those states. The reality, however, was that the election results would not have changed unless the recounts shifted the states to Clinton in all of those states. With Pennsylvania off the table,...

    READING, Pa. - Results of the November 8 election are being recounted in Wisconsin, a movement led by Green Party candidate Jill Stein. Stein has questioned the integrity of votes cast in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Michigan, but she hasn't presented any proof of wrongdoing. She's already raised more than $5 million for the recount. Election officials in Berks County moved forward Thursday and certified the votes that were cast in the election. "The election results are the election results," said Berks County Commissioner Kevin Barnhardt. Not everyone, however, is ready to accept them. "With the recount being done now, and...

    Electoral officials for the state of Michigan certified Monday that Donald Trump won by 10,704 votes out of nearly 4.8 million to claim all of its 16 electoral votes. Green Party nominnee Jill Stein said she would continue with her petitions for vote recounts in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, although it would have taken a reversal in all three states for Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton to reach the presidency. Questions raise as to how Stein got so quickly all her new funding, which largely surpasses her total campaign expenditures. There are leads pointing at billionaire George Soros. Although Donald Trump's victory...

    Green Party's Jill Stein needed thousands of volunteers to help with a voter-initiated recount of Pennsylvania's election results. But, officials are not seeing it. In a video Sunday, Stein asked volunteers to print, complete and get notarized affidavits in an attempt to force an election recount in Pennsylvania. Election officials from around the state said they had received some calls about affidavits but not the thousands Stein needs. While Stein said volunteers were needed to submit their documentation by Monday, Wanda Murren, spokeswoman for the Pennsylvania Department of State, has said the deadline for a voter-initiated recount was Nov. 21....

Updated 3:45 p.m. — Jill Stein officially filed a lawsuit in a bid to force all of Pennsylvania’s votes to be recounted. Jill Stein’s effort to recount presidential votes in three swing states already appears to be sputtering in Philadelphia. While Stein, a former presidential candidate, has raised millions of dollars and filed for a recount in Wisconsin, the process in Pennsylvania is much more complicated. Candidates cannot file for a recount themselves....

    Jill Stein posted to her Jill2016 website that she had raised enough money to “file” for a recount in Pennsylvania. However, the Green Party candidate left out some key details about the filing of recounts in Pennsylvania that many of her supporters likely would have wanted to know before donating. For example, candidates cannot file a direct request for a recount in the state and instead must appeal the election in court.
