The Recount Hail Mary: The Left May Get an Unexpected Lesson in Electoral Federalism

THE WALL STREET JOURNAL - Remember when Democrats and the left scored Donald Trump for worrying that the election might be “rigged”? Well, now that he’s won, the same crowd is demanding recounts in three battleground states on grounds that the Russians rigged the results.

On Saturday what’s left of the Clinton campaign said it will join the recount effort demanded by Green Party candidate Jill Stein in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania. The conspiracy theory for which they have no evidence is that Russian hackers rigged voting machines to manipulate the results. The Obama Administration has said it detected no such hacking and that the elections were “free and fair from a cybersecurity perspective.”

But reality doesn’t matter in the fake-news world of the far left any more than it does on the far right. The recount may be a progressive gambit to raise money from the gullible, or perhaps to cast doubt  on the legitimacy of the election. The ultimate Hail Mary would be to raise enough smoke about irregularities that individual electors would deny Mr. Trump the 270 votes he needs in the Electoral College.

Mr. Trump leads in 30 states with 306 electoral votes, and he would have to lose all three contested states to lose the election. He leads by some 71,000 votes in Pennsylvania, a little more than 20,000 in Wisconsin, and by nearly 11,000 in Michigan. If you think U.S. politics is polarized now, try handing the White House to Hillary Clinton now.

The silver lining may be to teach a lesson in electoral federalism.

Hillary is only joining Jill Stein because she knows her DNC Groups money paid off more than actually voted in those states. So, those registered democrats who took the money and RAN....and now they want a recount to see, "How can it BE"!!! Those $20 paid votes, didn't  happen for Hillary as planed, they happened for a "Chicken & a 40 oz" & didn't Vote. Those community organizers are in deep Doo Doo with Hillary & her Donors.. Donors want their money Back!!! They paid off voters for her election... Donors want Action...for our lost money!!!

Demoralized Democrats need to fill up their Coffers $$$.. by following Steins lead in to Mayhem, they don't care about Steins reputation being destroyed by making claims "Its the Russians rigging the votes". Who believes Hillary & Stein's Crap?  

Remember Hillary Preaching to Trump in the Debates, Will You Accept Voter Results...

The mainstream media’s orchestrated “attack” on Trump was that it is “un-American” and/or “horrifying” that he may not accept election results. Like a brainless group of minions, they are all repeating the same talking points.


Horrifying! Trump “upends a basic pillar of American democracy” by saying he will wait and see what happens on election day, because of his concern about voter fraud.


But wait!... Who was the last candidate who refused to accept the result on election day, as certified by election authorities? Al Gore. Did Gore “upend a basic pillar of American democracy” when he tried to overturn the result of the 2000 election?

Remember Democrats!!??..... I don’t remember the Associated Press saying so at the time. In fact, I would bet that the authors of the piece of AP hysteria were rooting for Gore, at the time. Unbelievable.
