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.
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.
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:
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.
I’m sure the DOJ and Obama made sure the new investigation went nowhere.
Now, is there anyone brave enough to take her down? Is there anyone with enough honor to risk their life to take down the Evil Witch of Benghazi?
There are others with the same information, but the DOJ is sitting on them too. The NYPD has all of the information but who is going to risk their life to expose it? I don’t think anyone now.
Everyone around the Clintons get paid off to do her bidding. That includes so many tentacles it would be impossible to make a map of where the octopus roams. I would imagine all over the world.
The Clinton Cartel and all who are involved in it are worse than the mafia. They are now too big and too dangerous to take down.
We know our government is completely corrupt.
More than the Clintons are involved in the Cartel. Many politicians on both sides of the aisle are involved.
The Globalists, the media, the DNC, to name a few of the bad actors are all in collusion to make sure she never gets charged for any of her felonies.
We are doomed. And what happens to all of us who are the deplorables and irredeemables she so hates?
Given the unprecedented ignorance, laziness and apathy of today’s America we are, just 240 years later, only microns away from losing our precious republic.
AMERICA, WAKE UP!! THIS SNAKE IS ABOUT TO BITE!! AND AT THIS CRUCIAL TIME IN OUR WOUNDED NATION’S DARKEST HOUR, HER VENOM HAS NO ANTIDOTE!! By Dave Merrick
Have you ever experienced little dots flashing before your eyes? I always chalk it up to being tired and stressed.
Lately, I’m feeling so stressed trying to keep up with all the information and all the happenings in the news. I feel like years have passed since the 2016 election process started.
Has it been 10 years this has been going on? That’s how it feels to me.
Ever since Obama took office it’s been one thing after another; a new regulation; a new Executive Order no matter how unconstitutional it is; one injustice after another; bringing in so many refugees without vetting; the failed economic policies; his unjustified wars; his war against us.
Elites, globalists, Agenda 21, the UN, Establishment politicians, never Trumpers, BLM, Shooting cops, anarchy. What more could one ask for in information overload? Far too much going on all at once. I think it’s called “deliberate chaos” to keep us off-balance.
Then the election process starts and new stories, new lies, Wikileaks dumps, the MSM bias and their lies, the polls, electoral maps, Hillary scandals, Trump’s faux pas.
My brain feels like it exploded at some point by so much to take in from these information overloads, that my brain matter is now splashed up against the walls like some horror scene.
I can’t keep up any longer on all the articles to read. At some point my brain shuts down and I can no longer take anything else in. My psyche screams “Enough”!
What used to be fun for me writing on my blog, now feels like a chore from hell. I try to find something that nobody else has on their blog. But that isn’t always easy to do. Search for more stories, different ones. Vetting the veracity of the stories.
I find myself spending hours upon hours on the Internet when I’ve got personal things to take care of and chores to do that I’ve let go because by the time I’m finished reading and writing for hours, I am simply drained of energy. My body feels sluggish and I drag myself around trying to complete some chores, half done until I return again to finish them up. It’s erratic.
This is an important time in our history. This election means everything to do with what path are we going to take. Are we going to save our country and ourselves or are we going to turn down the black brick road to hell with Hillary Clinton. Everyone, including myself is consumed with it. So much is at stake.
I’m in a sleep deprivation mode now. I sleep in shifts of all kinds of different hours. I can’t seem to make up my sleep deprivation. My sleeping habits are about as nuts as anybody I’ve ever known. I know it’s due to the upcoming election. I need to put this in God’s Hands because what control do I or anyone else really have. We can vote. Some one else who is illegal, dead people and foreigners vote cancelling our votes out.
What will become of us if Hillary wins? What is the next step and is it inevitable?
Editorial by DavetheRave
“Is the best of the free life behind us now and are the good times really over for good?” Great lyrics from a Merle Haggard song. Merle asked this great question of our nation years ago and I can’t help but reflect on them today. I’d have respond to Merle, “Yes.”
I’ve done my best to keep up with current events in our nation for the last ten years. While I did not agree with everything President Bush did; I do believe he loves our country, military and did his best. Then there was the 2008 election and the rising of Obama. I really didn’t know anything about this “come out of nowhere, community organizer” and I had to do my research. It took me all of 20 minutes to realize there is no way we can allow this beast and hater of our nation and constitution to be president. I did what I believed was my patriotic duty and voted against Obama and McCain. Make no mistake that I am not and have never been a big fan of McCain, but I’m also no one’s fool and believed I had no choice to vote for McCain to try to stop the Chicago Gangster Obama from getting into our White House. Sadly; for many reasons Obama was elected.
What helped Obama get elected? Massive voting fraud, Pro-Murder supporters, bums wanting handouts, unions, every minority known to man, the guilty white vote and those that chose not to vote at all due to their disdain for McCain. They hated McCain so much they felt just sitting on the sideline would make a statement, change the mind frame of the RNC and change the direction of history. Here we are five years later and Obama is still squatting in our White House. No direction of history was changed. No statement was even noticed by the RNC. IMO; history was now reinforced and Hillary Clinton will be our next president. Why do I believe this? Because NOTHING has changed in anyone’s mind from what they believed in 2008, to what they believed in 2012 and what they’ll believe in 2016. We have entered an era where people care more about themselves than they do the best option for our overall nation. A lot of us yearn for the years of Ronald Reagan, but President Reagan is dead and gone and patriots like him only come along every 100 years or so. But; many will still hold out for the “perfect” Republican, until they’re blue in the face and pass out. I call that a pipe dream folks.
Our nation was once the greatest the world had ever seen due to the dreams of the people. Now our nation is dying due to so many people “living” in their dream waiting for another Reagan or perfection. Reagan was not perfect, but he’s the best we’ve ever had IMO. Reagan believed in amnesty just like McCain, so would that same group that refused to vote for McCain also refused to vote for Reagan in 2008 helping Obama win? Makes me wonder.
“Together we stand, united we fall.” The Republicans (or any group that opposes the tyranny brought on us by Obama) really need to understand this statement. Nowhere in that quote does the word “perfect” appear. Nowhere in that quote does the word “selfish” appear. It certainly doesn’t imply that all Americans will stand together and agree. But, it does imply that those who oppose our nation is totally destroyed, our constitution being ignored and the crowning of another king must be stopped by all those that love our nation, love our constitution and does not want us ruled by a tyrannical king again. We are a very young nation folks, but look how so many have forgotten the lessons of our past in barely over 200 years.
This entire situation makes me very sad. Not sad for me, because I’ve already lived a long blessed life. I’m sad for our children, grandchildren…etc. Obama has done his very best to divide us, but he’s had a lot of help of us dividing us all by ourselves. This may be the last article I ever write. More importantly this could be the end of an era of the greatest nation to have ever existed.
