Recount Effort Meets Major Snag

Jill Stein’s crusade to obtain a recount in three states — an effort also taken up by Hillary Clinton’s supporters — just hit a major snag.

jill-stein-tweet-1

There is no absolute “right” to order a recount in Pennsylvania. In general, a person requesting a recount of votes must first present a showing of fraud, Yahoo News reported.

Oops!

The only recourse for the Green Party presidential nominee and Clinton’s supporters is to take their cause to court. Ka-ching!

The Pennsylvania Election Code provides that instead of granting candidates the absolute right to file a direct recount request, they must instead contest the count in a court proceeding. According to Pennsylvania code:

While candidates cannot file a direct request for a recount, they may appeal the order or decision of any county board regarding the computation or canvassing of the returns of any primary or election, or regarding any recount or recanvass thereof. During the appeal process, the court may determine that a recount is necessary.

And what evidence must the disgruntled candidate present to the court to be successful? Yahoo News reported:

Per Pennsylvania regulations, there is only one way remaining for Jill Stein to get a recount in Pennsylvania and it is a complicated process. Billy Penn reports that Stein would have to file for a court appeal and present a “prima facie case” showing that voter fraud took place. While prima facie has a lower burden of proof threshold than “beyond reasonable doubt”, it is still significant. Stein would have to prove in court that fraud was “probable.” This is going to be very difficult given that even the computer specialists recommending the recount say there is no proof of hacking or fraud.

On the issue of fraud, when the Clinton campaign joined forces in the recount effort, Clinton campaign counsel Marc Elias conceded that while there was no evidence of fraud, claimed to “have an obligation to the more than 64 million Americans who cast ballots for Hillary Clinton to participate in ongoing proceedings to ensure that an accurate vote count will be reported.”

One person suggested that the only fraud on the issue was Stein herself.

In addition, to be successful, a recount in Pennsylvania would have to overcome another huge obstacle — Trump’s large 70,638 vote margin of victory. The Pennsylvania Secretary of State‘s office reported this final tally:

  • Donald Trump: 2,934,583 (48.80 percent)
  • Hillary Clinton: 2,863,945 (47.83 percent)
  • Darrell Castle: 21,193 (0.35 percent)
  • Jill Stein: 49,170 (0.82 percent)
  • Gary Johnson: 144,141 (2.40 percent)

******************************************************************

This recount is nothing more than a way for the left to divide our country using these means to do it.

This is silly, stupid and a waste of money. I do believe Soros is behind this to try to take Trump down.Where is all this money coming from if Soros is not involved?

There seems to be no end to which these crooks on the left are willing to go.

I hope President Elect Trump has plenty of security because what is left if this fails which I think it will.  I see assassination as the last resort.

Report Reveals $42 Billion…….

..in Regulations Trump Could Slash on Day 1

Throughout much of his successful campaign for the presidency, President-elect Donald Trump spoke repeatedly about his intentions to roll back, if not entirely undo, many of the business-killing federal regulations put in place by President Barack Obama’s administration.

To that end, the American Action Forum dug into the regulatory nightmare emanating out of Washington, D.C., and compiled a list of dozens of regulations that could be immediately cut by Trump and the Republican-led Congress, according to The Daily Caller.

Utilizing what is known as the Congressional Review Act to invalidate at least 48 major regulations, the AAF report noted that, “Together, those rules impose more than $42.5 billion in total costs, $6.5 billion in annualized costs, and 53 million paperwork burden hours.”

“Republicans have the opportunity to enact regulatory reform on a scale not witnessed since President Reagan,” the report continued. “CRA disapproval resolutions seem poised to be a significant part of those plans.”

“Although it is unlikely that Congress will cash in all its political capital to this end, several high-profile major rules – and their sizable burdens – could go by the wayside in 2017,” the report noted, tempering expectations for a broad sweep of all burdensome regulations right away.

Furthermore, there are other regulations that may not have even been written yet that could be quickly overturned, due to various agencies in the Obama administration rushing to push through new “midnight” regulations at the last moment.

Alas, Obama’s regulators have been quite busy this year, already formulating more than 78,000 pages of new rules thus far in 2016, with an estimated cost of at least $148 billion. The administration sill has a month and a half still remaining to write more.

Analysts and report authors Sam Batkins and Dan Goldbeck provided a few examples of cuts that could immediately be made, such as to the Department of Interior’s restrictions on oil drilling in the Arctic region, or the Environmental Protection Agency‘s ludicrous fuel efficiency standards for the trucking industry.

The Arctic drilling rule has been estimated to cost more than $2 billion, while the EPA’s industry-killing fuel regulation costs soared to an astonishing $29.3 billion.

Nevertheless, we anxiously await Trump and his team to finally taking office and beginning the arduous process of taking a scythe to the field of chaff that has grown up in and around D.C.’s regulatory structure.

Wow, just look at all that money being wasted and a noose around our necks as a country. Business and energy stifled under Obama’s regulatory agencies.

I hope Trump follows through with his promise to get rid of these onerous burdens and allow us to become energy independent and for business to bloom once again providing lots of new jobs.

The Indisputable Bravery of Michael Savage

By By at CFP

This article is dedicated to Michael Savage and his bravery speaking the truth. I urge you all to go read the full article since it is so interesting and says much more about the brave Michael Savage.

Excerpts about Michael Savage:

Savage is like an ancient desert prophet, putting his life, fortune, and sacred honor on the line, every day. He is a paragon of apparent honesty, dedication, and commitment to Humanity. ALL that’s human. Savage is a courageous warrior on the right side of his own humanity.

Savage has a furious courage in his heart: courage is when you do something that scares you to death but you do it anyway. He doesn’t need the work; he doesn’t need the money; he doesn’t need the aggravation and danger. His net worth is said to be around $15M, and, yet, he’s out there five days a week, putting it all on the line.

There is more about Savage, but I’m now going to go to the later point this writer makes about what could happen if Hillary is elected and people like Michael Savage, Rush, and Hannity could be shut down by her. I think this is a real possibility because if there is anything she is allergic to the truth and she is a vengeful person. 

What’s even more sickening and provoking, more relevant to you, is that so many “Americans” seem to adore, believe, and support the warped witch of the West, Hillary “Rotten” Clinton, and her sleazy COLLUSION with England to ban the sound of True America from that darkened land, and from the world.

That you—you know who you are—and so many others seem to believe, adore, and trust Hillary Clinton—and even want to vote for her to be your ruler—is unbelievable to me, and to half the country. What is WRONG with your analysis? Do you think for a moment you will be left alone “to just get on” with your so-called “life”?

Can you ever see the ridiculous truth about Hillary Clinton? What is the draw to such a reportedly warped, sickly, unsympathetic, Machiavellian,  and power-lusting, would-be dictator over YOU? Do you think your way of life, you,  and your family can survive her Reign?

Well…I don’t THINK so, my brothers and sisters, no matter what skin color or God you worship.

Hillary Clinton’s list of apparent lies, criminal activity, body count, political machinations, propaganda atrocities, and general mayhem throughout the entire world should disqualify her from even running for public office. With her reported background of non-achievement, her disgusting “record,” political still-births, financial cancers, health record, drugs used, and flunked bar exam, I doubt she could either buy a gun or get a job sorting pants on the aisle on Assistant Buyers’ day.

Hillary Clinton only exists because she married Bill Clinton, targeting him as her vehicle. It’s clear to me that the fully agendized, mad-cap, leftist media created her, supports her, and tells lies about her. She could not even Exist without their world-wide propaganda campaign.

Okay, we are told, so what? So she’ll start WWIII with the Russians, so what? —Hey! TRUMP talked about PU$$Y! So he’s evil and therefore vote for the sociopath!

Don’t look, kids, but you’re being distracted, misinformed, gamed, and CONTROLLED.

But Americans can still awaken from their long sleep and false dreams. A Hillary victory would be a nightmare.

Wake up! Remember your proud history as spiritual descendants of George Washington, Ben Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, David Crockett, Daniel Boone, Kit Carson, Sam Houston, Jim Bridger, Audie Murphy, Dwight Eisenhower, George Patton, Harry Truman, and others.

Analyze the facts and the real news for yourselves. Do not listen to the lying media. YOU research it yourself. It’s all still online, including the Wikileaks dump of the Hillary emails. CNN tells us we are not allowed to see the emails. Only they can see the emails. We are not qualified, and they want it to be illegal for YOU to see what is really in those emails.

Yes, kids, it’s a real, “Argo f*ck yourself—from them to YOU.

If Hillary wins, what it would mean to you?

It’s this: you, your family, and the way of life you think is secure and that they will let you live in peace, are neither secure, nor guaranteed, and it all might die.

Another Covered UP Clinton Scandal

Deconstructing the Lie of TWA 800

TWA 800

By

In a number of ways, one specific event that happened twenty-years ago next month is even more relevant to today’s political and geopolitical landscape.

It was on Wednesday, July 17, 1996, a serene summer evening when the burning wreckage of TWA Flight 800 fell into the Atlantic Ocean not far from the southern coastline of Long Island, New York.

At 8:31 PM ET, just twelve minutes after taking off from JFK airport, the lives of all 230 people on-board tragically and unexpectedly ended. The lives of their surviving family members were also forever changed. So too, was the trajectory of our nation.

We were told that following a long and exhaustive investigation, the cause of this significant loss of life was a mechanical malfunction of the Boeing 747-100, an explosion of the center fuel tank, something that had not happened before or since. The actual facts, however, point to something entirely different. Enter author Jack Cashill.

Admittedly, investigative journalist Jack Cashill was not the first or only person to pick up the mantle of investigation of TWA Flight 800 in the fall of 2000, nor did his questioning the government account come lightly. However, Mr. Cashill made up for any lost ground through his tenacious investigation and contacts that exposes not only the lie, but the mechanics of the lie. He exposes the identities of those who orchestrated and facilitated in perpetuating the lie in his forthcoming book, TWA 800, The Crash, The Cover-Up, and The Conspiracy (available for purchase here on July 5, 2016). 

WA 800, The Crash, The Cover-Up, and The Conspiracy contains new information that will leave even the most well-informed and well-read stunned. His manner of presentation is well-sourced and heavily documented. His new findings, combined with previously established facts, is capable of withstanding even the most vigorous governmental cross-examination, and should readily convince even the most hardened skeptic of the lies that have been thrust down the throats of the American public.

Sadly, though, it is due to an orchestration of deceit that the victims of this tragedy and their families have been further victimized, along with each eyewitness that night and every American citizen who cares about the truth. Even after two decades, the blood of the victims cries out for the truth, while the cries of their loved ones continue to be unceremoniously muffled by the foot soldiers of the unscrupulous and corrupt.

But what caused this massive loss of life? An honest investigation of the evidence, including those who witnessed what happened in the sky that night, should answer this question. The necessary component is, of course, the honesty and integrity of the investigation. As it was ultimately discovered, the investigation was “managed” from the start and a false narrative was served to the American people.

There were nearly 700 eyewitnesses to what happened to TWA Flight 800 on that fateful night. Of those witnesses, 258 people saw an object ascending from the horizon to the aircraft, leaving a signature contrail in its wake. Another dozen additional witnesses saw what could be described as a missile strike and the passenger aircraft breaking up and falling into the Atlantic in about 120 feet of water.

Once again we find the Clintons covering up a scandal for greed, re-election and power. The plane was apparently shot down by a missile with many eye witnesses, up to 700.

But that is not the story the Clintons and their minions put out for public consumption. Mechanical malfunction was the story. But, that is proven to be a lie by Mr. Cashill who spent a lot of time investigating the crash.

Like the Benghazi attack, the truth had to be covered up since it was only 4 months to re-election when the attack occurred.

 

Because the article is too long to put up, read the stunning full story here.

Hillary’s Excessive Demands

Are Hillary’s demands excessive?  What do you think?

From Townhall, Daniel Doherty:

Ever since Hillary Clinton asserted that she wasn’t “truly well off” compared to other fabulously rich one-percenters (despite her family’s personal wealth and all evidence to the contrary) she’s had her (ahem) fair share of struggles convincing ordinary Americans she occupies the same world as them. The remark is especially tone-deaf given that she reportedly asks for at least six-figures every time she delivers a paid speech.

The median household income in the United States is roughly $44,000.

But the extent of her speaking fee demands go well beyond mere dollars and cents. As The Las Vegas Review-Journal exclusively reports:

According to a May 31, 2013 email, Clinton’s standard contract usually includes:* Round-trip transportation on a chartered private jet “e.g., a Gulfstream 450 or larger jet,” plus round-trip business class travel for two advance staffers who will arrive up to three days in advance.

* Hotel accommodations selected by Clinton’s staff and including “a presidential suite for Secretary Clinton and up to three (3) adjoining or contiguous single rooms for her travel aides and up to two (2) additional single rooms for the advance staff.”

* A $500 travel stipend to cover out-of-pocket costs for Clinton’s lead travel aide.

* Meals and incidentals for Clinton, her travel aides and advance staff, as well as all phone charges.

* Final approval of all moderators or introducers.

The Review-Journal also notes that her speech at the University of Nevada’s 2012 “Foundation dinner,” in particular, underscores Hillary’s lavish demands and preferences on the speaking circuit:

In fact, the former president spoke at the 2012 UNLV Foundation dinner, taking home a $250,000 fee. His spouse will get $225,000 to speak at the annual dinner. The size of Hillary Clinton’s fee has come under fire from critics who question the large expense in an era when students are hard-pressed to cover tuition and leave school saddled with massive debt.But Clinton’s $225,000 is something of a cut-rate. Documents obtained by the newspaper show that she initially asked for $300,000 and reveal that she insists on controlling every detail of the private event, large and small, to ensure that she will be the center of attention.

“It is agreed that Speaker will be the only person on the stage during her remarks,” according to the May 13 contract the Harry Walker Agency signed for Clinton’s keynote address at the Bellagio.

According to her standard speaking contract, Clinton will remain at the event no longer than 90 minutes; will pose for no more than 50 photos with no more than 100 people; and won’t allow any press coverage or video- or audio-taping of her speech.

A six-figure fee, presidential lodgings, complete control over the logistics of the event, and media censorship were only some of Hillary Clinton’s stipulations when delivering paid remarks at the University of Nevada at Las Vegas two years ago.

Parting question: How will these revelations play with the Democratic base? Will she get a free pass since she reportedly gives all of her earnings to “charity” (i.e. her own foundation), or will she be heavily criticized for hypocrisy, greed, and self-indulgence?

My, my aren’t we the Queen?  Just what we need is another Moochie.  I guess these demands are being made because she and Bill are so broke.  😀

America and Kafka’s Nightmare

Warning:  This article is very grim. If you are faint of heart do not continue.

America Is Plunging Into Kafka’s Nightmare

January 14, 2014 by Brandon Smith

The Eye

There is a certain level of dishonesty in the common study of history. We look back at the tyrannies of the past, the monstrous governments, the devastating wars and the unimaginable crimes, and we wonder how it could have been possible. How could the people of that particular generation let such atrocities come to pass? Why didn’t they do something? Why didn’t they protest? Why didn’t they fight back?

We wonder all of this as we absorb the lists of dates, names and actions in books written by other men who memorized other lists of dates, names and actions. We are taught to study and wonder without ever actually applying the lessons of the past to the developments of today. We are conditioned to apply our own narrow spin on yesterday, instead of placing ourselves in the shoes of our ancestors or recognizing that their struggles remain our struggles. The modern method of viewing history detaches us from history, making it seem distant, alien or surreal.

Often, the only way to grasp the more complete truth of the present is to examine it through the lens of the absurd. Sadly, our Nation, our culture and most of the world around us have become so backward, ugly, feeble and twisted that the only adequate comparison is to the nightmares of surrealists.

Recent legislation, the exposure of classified documents and the openly admitted criminality of political leadership call to mind Franz Kafka’s The Trial.

Kafka was a self-styled socialist back in the days when socialism was thought to be the next revolutionary movement for the downtrodden masses. It was, of course, controlled opposition created by global elitists attempting to exploit the natural rebellious tendencies of the general public within a false paradigm — using the masses to achieve greater power for a select few, while making the people think that they had won. It is ironic that Kafka would write The Trial, one of the greatest condemnations of totalitarian surveillance society, while at the same time supporting the socialist political vehicle that would eventually be used to implement unrelenting bureaucratic despotism.

The Trial is commonly labeled a “surrealist” piece of fiction, but I wonder now if it was actually far more literal than the academics of the past actually gave it credit for. The problem is that most of America, and much of the Western world, has forgotten what it is like to experience true danger and true suffering. We read about it now and watch movies about it like it’s entertainment, but few people have the slightest inkling how to deal with the real thing. We don’t even know how to recognize it. Because of this, Americans tend to pay more attention to fictional representations of tyranny rather than legitimate tyranny taking place right under their noses.

With that sad fact in mind, watch this clip from Orson Welles’ cinematic version of The Trial. See if you recognize your own world in this work of fantasy:

The main character of The Trial, Josef K., finds his apartment invaded by police in the early hours of the morning. Josef responds with anger but also fear, attempting to defend his character without actually understanding the nature of the police visit. The police answer his questions with more accusatory questions, only later warning him that he is being watched and that he is under arrest. The police do not, however, take him immediately into custody; nor do they ever tell him what his crime was. It is implied, in fact, that Josef is not allowed to know what he is being charged with.

This episode in The Trial has been played out in the real world over and over again, from the Soviet Cheka, to Adolf Hitler’s SS and Brownshirts, to Benito Mussolini’s Organization for Vigilance and Repression of Anti-Fascism (OVRA), to the German Stasi, to Mao Zedong’s Central Security Bureau, etc. In the United States, the culture of surveillance and intrusion has (for now) taken a more subtle approach through the use of technology. We do not yet have agents physically rummaging through all our homes and asking for our papers (though we are not far away from this). Rather, we have the National Security Agency, which rummages through our electronic communications while using our own computer cameras and cellphones to watch us, listen to us and track us. All of this, mind you, is done on a massive scale without warrant.

We have the Authorization for Use of Military Force and the National Defense Authorization Act , which gives the President the centralized authority to detain and even kill those Americans designated as “enemy combatants” without trial, without due process and without public oversight.

Our government now uses secret evidence to charge citizens with crimes they are not allowed to discuss with the public on the argument that to do so would “threaten national security.That’s right; the government can arrest you or assassinate you based on evidence they never have to disclose to you, your family, your lawyer or the citizenry.

In the U.S. today, the kind of establishment terror Kafka imagined is indeed a reality. We are not on the verge of a total surveillance state, we are there. It exists. And if we do not accept that this is our social condition, there may be no historians tomorrow to look back on our era and wonder: “Why didn’t they do something? Why didn’t they fight back?”

The revelations brought by Edward Snowden on the NSA and its PRISM mass surveillance program are still only partially understood by the public. Even many self-proclaimed “cypherpunks” and “techno-warriors” don’t really grasp the pervasiveness of the all-seeing NSA eye. Recent documents leaked to German news source Der Spiegel by Snowden reveal an Internet almost completely dominated by the NSA, where even total encryption would be a mere temporary stopgap, according to tech researcher and journalist Jacob Appelbaum. The TOA group, sanctioned by the NSA, has been using technologies for years that startle even the most avid tech experts. To make matters worse, many of the intrusive mechanisms have been implemented — likely with the direct aid of American software and computer companies.

With NSA access to the backbone or core of the Internet, there is no digital privacy anywhere. The cypherpunks lost the war for the Web a long time ago, and they don’t seem to know it yet.

Beyond the undeniable prevalence of government surveillance, what would our American Kafkaesque experience be like without kangaroo courts designed to defend the criminal establishment instead of the victimized population? The latest Federal court decision on the NSA’s methods is that they are perfectly legal and “necessary” to protect Americans from national security threats. If you are a student of Constitutional law, this decision truly boggles the mind.

One of the most powerful moments in The Trial is Josef’s speech to his court of accusers. In this moment, Josef argues with concrete logic and impassioned reason. His position is supported with beautifully crafted merit and truth. But what he does not realize is that the court he is trying to convince does not exist to discover the truth. The court is a sideshow, a piece of elaborate theater. The participants are there to make Josef, and the society at large, feel as though justice has been given a fair chance. Josef’s pleas are met with fake cheers, scripted jeers and even engineered distractions. Finally, he comes to understand that the system’s purpose is to destroy him. Everything else is an illusion.

The Web cannot be made free or private from within; our courts cannot be made fair and just from within; neither political party can be forced to represent the common man from within; and our government cannot be made honest or transparent from within. To play games of activism within the system is to play make-believe within a surrealist nightmare — a piece of “Alice in Wonderland” political quackery. Like the audience at Josef’s trial, the elites simply laugh, or feign applause, while continuing forever with the same corruption and the criminal status quo.

America has long presented itself as the ultimate alternative to the torturous mechanisms of oligarchs; and a long time ago, it was certainly a noble effort. However, our heritage of liberty — the faint memory of it — is all that’s left today. Some people may ask how this could have occurred. How did we become the monster we were supposed to fight against? What happened to the good side and the bad side? Have they become exactly the same?

Those of us who have looked beyond the standardized veil of history know that this is not by accident. Those of us who decipher the surreal know that there is a method to the madness and an ultimate goal. To explain further, I leave you with another piece of fiction, a clip from an episode of the British TV series “The Prisoner.” While not written by Kafka, it was definitely inspired by him. It carries a message I would have liked to have warned him about concerning the disturbing path of duality, the mask with multiple faces that tyranny uses to subvert and enslave:
