  • Ben Stein:Trumpís Blast Off

    03/01/2017 3:28:44 AM PST · by RoosterRedux · 30 replies
    Letís not kid ourselves. That was a super speech. Not flowery, except that in parts it was eloquent without being flowery. Not poetry, except that it was poetry. It was a blast from the heart of the heart of America. It was as if Mr. Trump did not even have to use words. His sincerity and power in touching what Americans want to hear was beyond prose. *snip* I have been a speechwriter since I was 18. First for Senator Joe Tydings (D-Md.) and then for Mr. Nixon and Mr. Ford and for decades for myself. I listen to all...

    Jill Steinís bid to recount votes in Pennsylvania was in trouble even before a federal judge shot it down Dec. 12. Thatís because the Green Party candidateís effort stood almost no chance of detecting potential fraud or error in the vote ó there was basically nothing to recount. Pennsylvania is one of 11 states where the majority of voters use antiquated machines that store votes electronically, without printed ballots or other paper-based backups that could be used to double-check the balloting. Thereís almost no way to know if theyíve accurately recorded individual votes ó or if anyone tampered with the...

    Steinís attorney addressed a letter to the Justice Department expressing concerns over "susceptibility to malicious interference and poor performance" of the voting machines used in the three states won by Republican Donald Trump. An excerpt from the letter goes on to say: "The attempted recount process has uncovered that voting machines relied on in these states and across the country are prone to human and machine error, especially in under-resourced black and brown communities, and vulnerable to tampering and hacking. The recount also found that the states' efforts to protect their systems may be insufficient, particularly in low-income communities and...

    Green Party candidate Jill Steinís Michigan recount unintentionally exposed major voter fraud in Detroit. Election officials in Michigan found that 37% of precincts in Detroit tabulated more ballots than the number of voters tallied by workers in the poll books. Hillary Clinton won Wayne County over Donald Trump 67% to 30%. State officials are planning to examine about 20 Detroit precincts where ballot discrepancies occurred.

    If anyone thought a Michigan ballot recount was going to end up being a net positive for Hillary Clinton, they are intellectually disconnected from understanding the reality of how fraudulent the most democrat precincts are in Wayne County (Detroit) Michigan. Election laws put into place specifically to protect the fraud, and ensure the manipulative discoveries are never identified, now mean the votes cannot be recounted. ‚Üź Likely Trump Rally In Louisiana To Support John Kennedy Senate Bid¬ÖReport: Kris Kobach and General Kelly Likely DHS Nominees¬Ö ‚Üí Detroit Voter Fraud so Extensive Half of Initial Votes Ineligible for Recount¬Ö Posted on...

    The Green Party-backed push for a recount of Pennsylvania's presidential election results will get its day in federal court. U.S. District Judge Paul S.
