  • Jill Stein Downplays Russian Meddling: Media and DNC Interfered in 2016 Election Too

    Days after the Russian indictments were handed down, Jill Stein appeared on MSNBC today to downplay Russian interference by pointing to American interference in the election. She told Alex Witt the idea there was this big Russian attempt to back her campaign to hurt Hillary Clinton is absurd, saying, “This doesn’t pass the laugh test.” She continued on to say there was “other kinds of interference,” like all the airtime the media gave Trump in 2016: “Yes, there was Russian interference, but remember, there was very compelling interference going on by way of media, by way of the DNC––did the...
  • Jill Stein says Americans need to 'see the evidence of Russian culpability' in election meddling

    Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein told Fox News Thursday night that Americans "have yet to see the proof" that Moscow meddled in last year's election. Stein confirmed earlier this week that the Senate Intelligence Committee had contacted her campaign to request documents, including emails, as part of its investigation into Russian activities and alleged collusion between campaigns and foreign interests. "I think there are legitimate aims here in the investigation," Stein told Fox News' "Tucker Carlson Tonight." "Interference in our election is much bigger than the Russians and ... I would like to see the evidence of Russian culpability...

    The Senate Intelligence Committee is looking at the presidential campaign of the Green Party’s Jill Stein for potential “collusion with the Russians,” a sign that the panel’s probe is far from over, even as allegations swirl that the House Intelligence Committee’s investigation is racing to a close. Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.) told reporters Monday that the Senate Intelligence Committee has “two other campaigns that we’re just starting on,” in addition to the panel’s ongoing probe of alleged ties between the Trump administration and Kremlin officials. One of those he identified as Stein’s; Burr has indicated previously that the committee is...

    The Senate Intelligence Committee has requested documents from a 2016 Green Party presidential candidate as part of the committee’s Russia probe, according to a new report. Last week, candidate Jill Stein contacted Dennis Trainor Jr., who worked as her communications director and acting campaign manager from January to August 2015, because the committee had requested documents from the campaign, BuzzFeed reported Monday. Trainor said that he was contacted because his personal cellphone had been given as the “primary point of contact” to those trying to reach Stein, such as producers from the Russian state-funded media company, RT News. Stein had...
  • Susan Sarandon thinks Hillary Clinton would have been 'very dangerous' as president

    11/26/2017 8:04:30 PM PST · by Strac6 · 29 replies
    Actress Susan Sarandon is having a tough time since the 2016 election as the star is now being attacked by the left for refusing to support Hillary Clinton. Despite campaigning for Hillary in 2001, she was a supporter of Bernie Sanders in 2016. When he failed to take the Democratic nomination, the actress did not shift her star-powered support to Hillary, which got the attention of the moderates and the left in a very negative way. “I got from Hillary people ‘I hope your crotch is grabbed,’ ‘I hope you’re raped.’ Misogynistic attacks. Recently, I said ‘I stand with Dreamers...

    Gary Johnson and Jill Stein still plan to ask the U.S. Supreme Court to hear Johnson v Commission on Presidential Debates, their case using federal anti-trust law to attack the exclusionary policy of the Commission on Presidential Debates. Their cert petition was originally due at the end of November, but the Court has granted an extension to file. The cert petition is now due December 27.

    The former Green Party presidential candidate explained her presence at a dinner alongside Vladimir Putin and disgraced national security adviser Michael Flynn in Moscow. Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein denied a rumored connection to Russia and Vladimir Putin on Wednesday, brushing off a photo of her at dinner with Putin in 2015. A much-circulated photograph of Stein — criticized for acting as a spoiler to the Democrats during the 2016 election — showed Stein seated at a dinner table at a conference in Moscow, alongside Putin and fired national security adviser Michael Flynn, who left the White House after...

    Former Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein tweeted out the White House phone number on Tuesday calling on her following to "prevent WWIII" by flooding the White House with phone calls and urging them to negotiate with North Korea. "Urgent. Prevent WWIII. Flood the White House switchboard now: Negotiate don't escalate with North Korea! 202-456-1414," Stein tweeted. North Korea said on Tuesday that it is examining plans for a missile strike on Guam, just after Trump said that any threat to the United States from North Korea would be met with "fire and fury." Stein also urged the president to...

    Former Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein has weighed in on North Korea’s ballistic missile tests and has a message for dictator Kim Jong-Un – It’s not you, it’s us. In a series of media appearances, Stein has come to the defense of the rogue nation insisting they are victims of American propaganda and have been “cornered” into pursuing a nuclear weapons program. “The demonization of North Korea is part of the run-up to regime change. It’s part of demonizing a government that we then want to exercise regime change on,” Stein said Sunday in an interview on MSNBC. Taken...

    Let’s 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...

    Saturday, former Nixon and Ford speechwriter, actor and author Ben Stein said on “CNN Newsroom” that mainstream media like CNN and The New York Times are “looking for a scandal” with President Donald Trump and they want to do to him like they did to former President Richard Nixon. “Look, every day you pick up The New York Times, every day they’re slamming, slamming, slamming [Trump]. I’m a great fan of CNN; I watch it quite faithfully, every day CNN is slamming him, slamming him, slamming him. Every day, they’re looking for a scandal. They’re just turning the woods upside...

    Jill Stein’s bid to recount votes in Pennsylvania was in trouble even before a federal judge shot it down Dec. 12. That’s because the Green Party candidate’s effort stood almost no chance of detecting potential fraud or error in the vote — 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. There’s almost no way to know if they’ve accurately recorded individual votes — or if anyone tampered with the...

    Stein’s 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...

    Jill Stein is continuing her push to investigate the integrity of the U.S. electoral system, with lawyers for the former Green Party presidential candidate asking Attorney General Loretta Lynch to probe the issue. "We write to urge the Department of Justice to launch an investigation into the integrity of our nation’s election system generally, and our nation’s voting machines specifically, based on the information we discovered in the course of this representation," reads the letter from Stein's counsel dated Friday. "The attempted recount process has uncovered that voting machines relied on in these states and across the country are prone...

    Green Party presidential nominee Jill Stein’s attempts to recount the election results in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania are now over. Although Stein only secured a complete recount in Wisconsin, she is claiming to have won a victory for voters by exposing weaknesses in the voting system. In fact, Stein’s greatest service may have been to validate the Wisconsin results ― and thus demonstrate that voting irregularities did not tip the election in Donald Trump’s favor. “I’d like to think that the public appreciates that as a result of the examinations that occurred, that the results were not corrupted in any...

    Green Party candidate Jill Stein’s 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. Detroit News reported: Voting machines in more than one-third of all Detroit precincts registered more votes than they should have during last month’s presidential election, according to Wayne County records prepared at the request of...

    LANSING — All sides agreed Tuesday that state and local election officials did a generally good job on a statewide presidential recount that was halted by the courts on Wednesday after two and a half days of counting. But testimony before the Board of State Canvassers differed on whether the partial recount requested by Green Party candidate Jill Stein served a useful purpose. Still, the board voted Tuesday 3-1 to formally reject Stein's request for a recount. To Stein attorney Mark Brewer, who formally withdrew Stein's recount request at Tuesday's meeting of the state elections panel, the recount turned up...

    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...

    A federal judge dealt another blow Monday to the Green Party-backed push for a presidential election recount in key battleground states, rejecting a request to recount paper ballots in Pennsylvania and scan some county systems for signs of hacking. The Green Party has made similar attempts at recounts in Wisconsin and Michigan, all states won by President-elect Donald Trump. But while the Wisconsin count is almost done, a federal judge halted Michigan's recount last week - the decision Monday in Pennsylvania amounts to another setback for Jill Stein and her allies. In his 31-page decision, U.S. District Judge Paul Diamond...
