    After election day, 11/08/2016, Liberals spent the next several weeks in impotent rage that Kim Jong Hillary did not win the necessary electoral votes to assure her coronation on the Iron Throne. Leftists across the nation marched, torched buildings, filled their diapers and threw tantrums in every major city center in which Hillary actually won. Once it became clear that the tantrums were not enough to force Trump to capitulate and cede the election to Hillary, Green Party candidate, Dr. Jill Stein, stepped forward to challenge the results of three crucial states that Trump barely won — Michigan, Wisconsin and...

    (AP) Republican Donald Trump’s victory in Wisconsin was reaffirmed Monday following a recount that showed him defeating Democrat Hillary Clinton by more than 22,000 votes. Wisconsin finalized its recount on the same day that a federal judge issued a stinging rejection of a Green Party-backed request to recount paper ballots in Pennsylvania’s presidential election and scan some counties’ election systems for signs of hacking. Green Party candidate Jill Stein successfully requested, and paid for, the Wisconsin recount while her attempts for similar statewide recounts in Pennsylvania and Michigan were blocked by the courts. Stein only got about 1 percent of...

    "Under federal law (3 U.S. Code § 5) known as the safe harbor provision, a state must determine its electors six days before the Electoral College members meet in person. In 2016, that deadline is Tuesday December 13th, since the college votes on December 19."

    PHILADELPHIA (AP) - The Latest on the presidential recount efforts in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin (all times local): 12 p.m. Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein says her efforts to force recounts in Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin are "about ensuring that all votes are counted and that voters can trust the system." Stein made the comments Monday outside of Trump Tower in New York City. The news conference had a circus-like atmosphere, as some of President-elect Donald Trump's supporters heckled Stein...

    Tyler DurdenDecember 5, 2016Submitted by Jeremiah Johnson (nom de plume of a retired Green Beret of the Army Special Forces) Many things have been happening in this “transition period” that point to one grim fact: Trump hasn’t sworn into office as president yet. As a matter of fact, things are happening that may very well derail that inauguration. There’s an old Irish expression: “There’s many a slip ‘twixt the cup and the lip,” and there’s quite a few slippery deeds in the works in particular that bear mentioning. January 20, 2017 is still a long way off, and Obama isn’t...

    Representatives of President-elect Donald Trump are challenging recount motions in Pennsylvania and Michigan, according to Politico. “Despite being no more than a blip on the electoral radar, Stein has now commandeered Pennsylvania’s electoral process, with an eye toward doing the same to the Electoral College,” the complaint filed Thursday states. “There is no evidence — or even an allegation — that any tampering with Pennsylvania’s voting systems actually occurred.” Green Party candidate Jill Stein is responsible for pushing the recount efforts in those states, and called Trump’s motion “outrageous.” “The recount in Michigan, which has been driven by an outpouring of grassroots support...

    In anticipation of a Trump loss, Hillary Clinton and her cohorts professed that anything other than graceful acceptance of the loss would “threaten democracy.”  But now that Trump has won, the left has hypocritically become unhinged.  After violent protests, petitions to eradicate the electoral college, and coddling college age students to miss class, delay exams and obtain psychotherapy to deal with the “trauma” of the election results, liberal political elites are in fear that the left will at last, calm down and accept the results.  They cannot accept such complacency.   Democrats got defeated in a sweep across the nation,...

    If after all the devious machinations Trump still wins this will be used by the Sandernistas and the Clintonites to cry rigged system The recount in Wisconsin and the coming ones in Michigan and Pennsylvania will not change the outcomes in any of those states.  Even though the party of Mayor Daley, Boss Tweed, and their big city machines are famous for winning recounts by finding bags of votes in candy store basements no recount has ever changed thousands of votes let alone tens of thousands.  I do not believe changing the outcome is the purpose. It is instead changing...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)On Monday's Morning Joe on MSNBC, co-host Joe Scarborough laughed at and mocked the mainstream media's treatment of the Jill Stein-Hillary Clinton recount, holding up copies of the Financial Times, Wall Street Journal, and The New York Times. He asked: "Has Dana Milbank now said ‘Hillary Clinton is threatening to undermine the democracy’ in The Washington Post today?" "I am sure he will," he said sarcastically. "This is why, by the way, you’re all going out of business!" SCARBOROUGH: [laughing] --- I’m sorry, okay hold on – [laughing]…. Hold on, that’s funny! All right, so he's threatening our democracy if...
  • Minor party candidate files for recount of sample of Nevada presidential ballots

    CARSON CITY — Roque “Rocky” De La Fuente, an independent candidate for president who garnered less than 1 percent of the vote in Nevada, filed late Tuesday for a recount of a sample of the state’s presidential ballots. De La Fuente identified 93 precincts to be recounted and paid $14,154.98 to the Secretary of State’s Office ahead of the 5 p.m. deadline to cover the cost. In the November election, De La Fuente came in dead last in the presidential contest on the Nevada ballot, even trailing “None of these candidates.” He received just 2,552 votes, or 0.23 percent. Democratic...

    According to a report Tuesday in New York Magazine, a group of computer scientists and election lawyers have approached the Hillary Clinton campaign with evidence they believe suggests the election might have been hacked to make it appear that Donald Trump won the Electoral College when Clinton really did. The hacking claim appears to be based on concerns about tampering with electronic voting machines. We’ve looked into the claim — or at least, our best guess of what’s being claimed based on what has been reported — and statistically, it doesn’t check out. There’s no clear evidence that the voting...

    The passions that swirled around Bush v. Gore, the Supreme Court case that ended 10 years ago Sunday, dissipated quickly. And remarkably little damage was done by the institutional collisions that resulted when control of the nation's supreme political office turned on 537 votes out of 5,963,110 cast in Florida. Many controversies concerned whether particular votes could be said to have been cast properly. Chads are those bits of paper that, when a ballot is properly cast by puncturing spots next to candidates' names, are separated from the ballot. In Florida, there were "dimpled" chads that were merely dented and...

    I just received this e-mail: Dear Supporter, Election night, after the ten counties in my district had reported their votes, I led Bob Etheridge by 2,100 votes. (That number is crucial because under North Carolina law Congressman Etheridge is not entitled to an ‘automatic recount’ if he trails by more than 1% – or 1,888 votes.) Then, yesterday afternoon – unexpectedly – the vote totals changed. The State Board of Elections reported my lead had dropped to 1,600 votes. Two hours later Bob Etheridge announced he intended to call for a recount. As a result, last night my campaign began...

    My secret sources have discovered another bizarre twist in the ongoing Climategate scandal: Breaking! Al Gore Demands Partial Recount of Climate Data As the impact of the global warming scandal widens, Nobel Prize winner and long time spokesperson for the movement demanded a partial recount of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) data. In asking for the partial recount, Mr Gore asked that any data tending to show global cooling should be re-counted while data tending to show global warming be left as it is. When asked whether this would tend to skew the data in favor of global...

    Four votes. That's how many votes the Franken campaign just said they're leading Norm Coleman by, with the hand recount now officially finished. In other words, with every single precinct in Minnesota now done counting (except for the one where they're still searching for the missing votes), the Franken campaign is claiming the lead. An extremely slim lead, but a lead nonetheless. "We are not declaring victory -- we are moving into the next stage of the process," said Franken's lead recount lawyer Marc Elias, in a press briefing going on now with reporters. "But we are going into that...
