He loves me, he loves me not. She loves me, she loves me not. Jill Stein’s thought process very well could be mistaken for the children’s game made popular centuries ago in France.
Anyone who isn’t residing in a cave in the Himalayas is well aware of Green Party neverwas presidential hopeful Dr. Jill Stein kicking up a recount fuss in the razor-thin Trump victories in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania.
As reported by Oliver Darcy of the Business Insider, the Wisconsin recount is a done deal. Possibly much to the chagrin of Stein, reporter Darcy notes;
President-elect Donald Trump expanded his win by 131 votes in Wisconsin after a recount was requested and conducted in the state.
Possibly stating more of a fact than opinion, Darcy also cited;
Jill Stein, the Green Party presidential nominee, filed a request for a recount over unsupported concerns that hackers meddled with the results.
But wait, there’s more.
Just two short weeks ago, Howie Kurtz of Fox News had the guts to call a spade a spade;
The whole notion of a recount is absurd. Clinton may have won the popular vote, but this isn’t the hanging-chads environment of 2000. Trump has more than 300 electoral votes, and he will be the next president.
So along comes Stein, the Green Party candidate, and as a fundraising and attention-getting device, she successfully pushes for a recount in Wisconsin. This is, of course, ludicrous, since Trump won the state by more than 20,000 votes. (Stein is trying now in Pennsylvania, which Trump won by 70,000 votes.)
Clinton, who conceded on Election Night, had not asked for a recount. But her lawyer, while conceding the campaign has no “actionable evidence” of hacking or other illegalities, agrees to cooperate.
So here we have Stein, who by the way, didn’t even pull in 1 percent of the vote nationally, finding herself allied with Hillary Clinton against that big ol’ meanie Trump.
Two days before Kurtz’s article, Harold Michael Harvey of TheHill.com quoted Stein’s campaign manager David Cobb;
“It is about securing confidence in our election system. This challenge is not about changing the election result, but about securing a process that ensures that every votes actually counts for the candidate that each voter intended to receive that vote.”
So after a couple million dollars worth of various panicked NeverTrumpers ranging from Greens to RINOs to Democrats making a last gasp as stopping the inauguration of The Donald, it turns out that Trump was right all along. The system really does work.
Despite Stein’s sudden bestie status with Crooked Hillary, the requited love wasn’t always in the air.
Tim Haines of Real Clear Politics reported on October 12 that Stein actually warned the world of the catastrophic consequences that came with voting for Clinton
In 158 words, Stein went from slamming Clinton, to slamming Trump, to really slamming Clinton, to kinda supporting Trump, to finally complementing Trump;
It is now Hillary Clinton that wants to start an air war with Russia over Syria by calling for a no fly zone.
We have 2000 nuclear missiles on hairtrigger alert. They are saying we are closer to a nuclear war than we have ever been.
Under Hillary Clinton, we could slide into nuclear war very quickly from her declared policy in Syria.
I sure won’t sleep well at night if Donald Trump is elected, but I sure won’t sleep well at night if Hillary Clinton elected. We have another choice other than these two candidates who are both promoting lethal policies.
On the issue of war and nuclear weapons, it is actually Hillary’s policies which are much scarier than Donald Trump who does not want to go to war with Russia.
He wants to seek modes of working together, which is the route that we need to follow not to go into confrontation and nuclear war with Russia.
