Here we go in Michigan. Remember when Donald Trump told us the November 8th election would be rigged, and the Democrats told us he was full of baloney – that it was impossible to tamper with those electronic voting machines? Because they were just sure that Hillary Clinton would win in a landslide.
Well, guess what. Green Party candidate Jill Stein, who got about 1% of the popular vote, brought her computer science experts into a Federal Court of Law on a Sunday, and voila! We have us another recount, supposedly beginning today at noon.
Stein says it’s about ensuring integrity of the voting system Someone else has already observed that Stein is in no way questioning the vote counts in any state wherein Hillary Clinton won. Stein is only concerned with recounting Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania, which Trump won handily. If those results are to be reversed, Hillary Clinton will win the election.
Here’s a bit of the USA Today report:
DETROIT — A federal judge early Monday morning ordered a recount of Michigan’s presidential ballots to begin at noon on Monday, and for the state to “assemble necessary staff to work sufficient hours” to complete the recount by a Dec. 13 federal deadline.
Lawyers for Green Party candidate Jill Stein urged the action in an emergency request, and U.S. District Judge Mark Goldsmith held a rare Sunday hearing in federal court. It lasted three hours, and Goldsmith issued a written opinion just after midnight Monday morning…
…Ronna Romney McDaniel, chairwoman of the Michigan Republican Party, who attended Sunday’s court hearing, said in a release Monday morning she is “outraged that Jill Stein is trying to use the courts to change the outcome of the Michigan election” after “all votes were counted and certified by the Board of Canvassers.”
She said “this recount is an incredible waste of Michigan taxpayers’ money,” and “we will vigorously pursue any and all options available to us to overturn this ruling and to end this recount.”…
…Goldsmith, who was appointed to the federal bench by President Obama in 2010, agreed [with Stein’s request for an immediate recount]. “The fundamental right invoked by plaintiffs — the right to vote, and to have that vote conducted fairly and counted accurately — is the bedrock of our nation,” he said in his opinion…
And blah blah blah.
Don’t ever let anyone tell you that Lady Justice is blind. All rulings from the bench in any Court of Law are dependent upon the judge’s political persuasion.
Everything is politicized, ladies and gentlemen.
Now we will soon enough see if Ann Coulter’s take on how the Democrats steal elections with recounts is anywhere near correct. This one is far from being settled.
Meanwhile, the great Green Party 1 percenter Jill Stein and her lawyers are doing the dirty work, enabling Hillary Clinton’s hands to remain clean. How clever.
