Hillary’s Dirty Hands Involved in Stein’s Recount Scam?
by Stephen Lendman
According to attorney Marc Elias, Hillary’s campaign “quietly t(ook) a number of steps in the last two weeks to rule in or out any possibility of outside interference in the vote tally in these critical battleground states” – referring to Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.
They “uncovered (no) actionable evidence of hacking or outside attempts to alter the voting technology.”
Yet Elias repeated the Big Lie, claiming Russian hacking of DNC emails and interfering in America’s electoral process, despite no credible evidence suggesting it, just baseless accusations – part sour grapes, part Russia bashing.
He said Hillary’s campaign will participate in Wisconsin’s recount, lawyers representing her in court, if needed. If the process is repeated in Michigan and Pennsylvania, her representatives will also be involved.
According to Law Professor/election law expert Richard Hasen, she has virtually no chance to change the election’s outcome in her favor.
Hasen didn’t explain what I covered in earlier articles. Deep state power brokers decide who’ll hold high elected and appointed positions at the federal, state and local levels.
Democracy in America is pure fantasy. None existed from inception. Elections are easily manipulated with corporate-controlled electronic ease, voter roll stripping and other dirty tricks.
Hillary was damaged goods, too scandal-ridden to serve effectively, dumped for Trump, a deal likely cut with him to assure continuity, allowing him some wiggle room without changing how America is governed – serving wealth, power and privilege exclusively.
It remains to be seen how he’ll square the circle – going along to get along while creating the appearance of anti-establishment change.
He promised to serve all Americans, normalize relations with Russia, cooperate with Putin in combating terrorism in Syria, end TPP, renegotiate NAFTA and other high-minded pledges. Promises are one thing, delivering another.
Hillary lost. He won. In January, he’ll succeed Obama. On Saturday, he justifiably blasted Jill Stein, calling her recount scheme “just a way for (her) to fill her coffers with money.”
“The people have spoken and the election is over, and as Hillary Clinton herself said on election night, in addition to her conceding by congratulating me, ‘We must accept this result and then look to the future.’ “
Hours later, he tweeted Stein’s “scam” was “now being joined by the badly defeated & demoralized Dems.”
Separately, he tweeted “(t)he Democrats, when they incorrectly thought they were going to win, asked that the election night tabulation be accepted. Not so anymore!”
During the October presidential debate with Hillary, Trump was asked if he’d accept the election results if he lost. He responded, saying he’d “keep you in suspense.”
Hillary called his answer “horrifying,” adding he’s “talking down our democracy.” Separately, her campaign tweeted “Donald Trump refused to say that he’d respect the results of this election. By doing that, he’s threatening our democracy.”
Stein lied calling the election “hack-riddled,” suggesting Russian involvement, despite no credible evidence proving it.
The Obama administration said “we stand behind our election results, which accurately reflect the will of the American people.”
DHS said it didn’t see “any increased level of malicious cyberactivity aimed at disrupting our electoral process on Election Day.”
Exposed as a scam artist, Sanders with a gender difference, Stein’s self-styled progressivism is phony, her so-called high-mindedness shattered.
Neither she nor Hillary’s campaign will change the election’s results. On January 20, Trump will become America’s 45th president.
