Jill Stein, the Green Party candidate who received just one percent of the vote, called for a recount. Hillary Clinton has joined the movement as well. Liberals would have you believe that this is all being done fir the purpose of “preserving the integrity” of the system. But don’t be fooled- there is a completely different reason for this call for the recount.
The real reason for this is to tie up the electoral votes long enough in order to nullify the electoral votes of Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania.
Federal law says that presidential recounts must be completed within 35 days after an election. Stein waited until 90 minutes before the Wisconsin deadline for filing a recount petition expired.
All the votes have to be certified by December 13 according to a report on Friday. The electors meet on December 19.
Wisconsin will almost certainly miss that deadline, since the last recount took more than a month. And that recount was for a state Supreme Court contest where only 1.5 million votes were cast.
If Wisconsin misses the December 19 deadline, the electoral votes may not be counted.
On top of that, hitting the Dec. 13 deadline will be virtually impossible if Stein is able to force the recount to be conducted by hand, Wisconsin’s top election official said.
This is so blatantly CORRUPT! No wonder Hillary is all over this garbage.
Robert Gehl at Federalist Papers reports that she’s also making the same move in Michigan and Pennsylvania. Force a recount that would be almost impossible to complete in time for the electors to count.
So what happens when the electors meet on Dec. 19 in their respective state capitols and those three states aren’t represented? Then Trump only gets 260 electoral college votes – ten less than the majority needed.
[What happens then?] The American Thinker gives us the answer:
Then this goes to Congress, where the House voting 1 vote per state elects Trump, and Senate selects Pence. This would be first time this happened since 1824, but in that case, John Quincy Adams won in the House, though he had fewer electoral college votes than Andrew Jackson.
If this goes to the US House and Senate, and the result is the same as result from the Electoral College without the recounts, why do it? The answer is to make Trump seem even more illegitimate, that he did not win the popular vote (he lost by over 2.1 million), he did not win the Electoral College (did not reach 270), and was elected by being inserted into the presidency by members of his own party in Congress.
Greater forces are at work here. Nefarious forces that will do anything to undermine not only the future president, but the integrity of the American election system.
