The Green Party’s push for presidential recounts swung into high gear early Monday as a federal judge in Michigan dismissed GOP objections and ordered that state’s recount to begin immediately, and Jill Stein’s campaign filed a federal suit seeking a statewide recount in Pennsylvania, whose election system they called a “national disgrace.”

The court victory came early Monday, when U.S. Court District Judge Mark Goldsmith granted the campaign’s emergency request to start the statewide recount immediately. His opinion, issued just after midnight, said a state law requiring a two-business-day waiting period to start the recount likely violates voting rights. “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, ordering the recount to begin Monday at noon.

Goldsmith dismissed objections by Donald Trump’s campaign and Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette, a…

    ” a national disgrace”? so we have to recount only 3 states that Killary lost? your bias is too obvious and displays ignorance, bramhall. unforgivable.

  2. I think you may be missing the point here. The national disgrace is the massive vote rigging in the US that has been going on since 2000. If I had my druthers they would have automatic recounts in all states where the actual vote differed significantly from the exit polls, instead of charging millions of dollars for them. When the US monitors elections overseas, they automatically declare elections invalid in Africa, Ukraine and elsewhere if the actual vote differs significant from the exit poll. According to Greg Palast in The Best Democracy Money Can Buy, there are approximately 5-6 million votes in every national election that aren’t counted because voters names are fraudulently removed from the electoral rolls. This is on top of all the hacking of voting machines and vote counting machines (documented by Black Box Voting).

    If I had my druthers, there would be automatic recounts in all 50 states. I’m no Clinton supporter – I think that’s pretty obvious from the posts I’ve written over the last six years. I do advocate for free and fair elections – and if capitalist stooges insist on corrupting our democratic government institutions I feel that offers a compelling argument for dismantling capitalism.

      hear here. but it has been demonstrated that exit pols can be and are inaccurate, for many reasons. so using that as a measuring tool is sure to be inaccurate. the huge issue here is that HC is the ONLY beneficiary from any recounting -not the GP or Stein, who is obviously in league with HC. as for “free and fair” that is an illusion in the US of A. the whole recount venture is based on Stein’s feelings, without any proof. lastly, I hope, if you really believed in this charade you would insist that the top three HC states be audited or recounted. but you didn’t. my resistance is that simply recounting ballots that have been counted over 3 weeks is an excellent opportunity for HC and Soros or others to steal the election by “finding” misplaced boxes of ballots. I believe that has already happened in Pa. no need to reply. I have followed this blog for several years but am now disappointed in it. .

  3. Realistically the problem with recounting the top 3 HC states is that it would be impossible to crowdfund to pay for it. No Trump supporters are going to donate $2,700 a pop to recount HC states – not when their candidate already holds the electoral college votes to assume the presidency.

    If crooked Hillary won, you wouldn’t recount. But b/c Trump won…and you don’t like Trump and voted for crooked Stein, you want a recount. (don’t start me on crooked Stein lol) Like its going to matter. Trump is your next president. Get over it. He will clean corruption. The college vote is a safeguard as u well know. Bush elections was a hoax but no one got his ass out of the white house. Democrats had disruptive bullies at all of T’s rallies. The crooked Clinton Foundation. The sexing of children by Podesta. The killing of innocent families of the middle east. Benghazi murders. Africa. South American catastrophe. Selling of arms to ISIS. Hillary did nothing. NADA!..The D Party got caught out lying and corrupted anything and sundries to get their way and still lost. From a legal perspective, there is enough evidence to indict them all…according to the legal profession. And they will. She is going down. One thing I dislike are sore losers. All of your posts were spot on…then bam..you fell over. I fail to see how all of your comments came from a commonsense base yet you can’t see when the majority of people voted against DemoCrooks you suddenly don’t want to see common sense. Crooks dont belong to any particular party. They’re everywhere. and btw who said CrookedHillary won the popular vote…was it the crooked media?…the ones that got it not just wrong…but gigantically wrong…omg…in the end you’re entitled to your views and i respect that.

    • Actually if given a choice between Trump and Clinton, I think we are ultimately better off with Trump. So I honestly don’t see how your “sore loser” label applies. Nevertheless, as an anticapitalist I leap at any opportunity to expose corruption.

        The “sore loser” label was a general statement, applied to those still wanting a re-cast. How do we honestly know if crooked Hillary won the populist vote. Corruption is rampant. Hillary had no clear policy. She achieved nothing in 8yrs, yet won a popular vote!?. Doesn’t add up. If anything…looking into her crookedness would be the right thing to do. First of all, [Clinton’s] probably not going to win the actual number of votes cast. She may win the number of votes counted, but not the votes cast. States don’t count their absentee ballots unless the number of outstanding absentee ballots is larger than the state margin of difference. If there is a margin of 1,000 votes counted and there are 1,300 absentee ballots outstanding, then the state tabulates those. If the number of outstanding absentee ballots wouldn’t influence the election results, then the absentee ballots aren’t counted. But as satisfying (or disappointing) as it may be to Hillary Clinton supporters to see that more Americans voted for her than for any other candidate…including the Don…that fact won’t change the outcome in any way. USA needs to come together and not be divisive. And I like reading your posts btw. One of the best bloggers.
