Hillary Clinton's Campaign to join Jill Stein's recount efforts --- Trump says it's all a scam


"SHE'S ALIVE -- HILLARY CHALLENGES ELECTION RESULTS" ---  DRUDGE REPORT HEADLINE


ACCORDING TO AP & BREITBART NEWS  STORIES: TRUMP SLAMS RECOUNT EFFORTS AS JUST "A SCAM" BY STEIN TO RAISE $$$$  &  SAYS ELECTION IS OVER, BUT DEFEATED AND DEMORALIZED DEMS ARE JOINING THE POINTLESS RECOUNT EFFORT


THE BREITBART NEWS  ACCOUNT

According to an article on the Breitbart News blog,   "Hillary Clinton’s campaign will participate in Jill Stein’s recount effort in Wisconsin, said campaign counsel Marc Elias Saturday — even though he noted her aides have seen no evidence that the election that gave Donald Trump the White House was unfair....  'We intend to participate in order to ensure the process proceeds in a manner that is fair to all sides,' Elias said, adding that the campaign will do the same in Michigan and Pennsylvania if the Green Party candidate pursues recounts there, as she has promised....   (See "Trump Mocks Jill Stein, ‘Defeated, Demoralized Dems’ for ‘Ridiculous’ Recount ‘Scam’  "   by Breitbart Staff Writer, 11/26/16, Breitbart News/ Big Government  [http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2016/11/26/trump-mocks-jill-stein-defeated-demoralized-democrats-ridiculous-recount-scam/]).

The Breitbart report quoted President-Elect Trump as follows:   "Trump, who made no public comment when Stein filed her recount petition on Friday, released a statement within hours of Elias’s announcement....  'This is a scam by the Green Party for an election that has already been conceded,' Trump fumed, calling the recount effort 'ridiculous.'...   'This recount is just a way for Jill Stein, who received less than 1 percent of the vote overall and wasn’t even on the ballot in many states, to fill her coffers with money,’ the president-elect added.... "  Also in the Breitbart piece was a copy of a Trump tweet that said the following:  "...  The Green Party scam to fill up their coffers by asking for impossible recounts is now being joined by the badly defeated & demoralized Dems..."

THE AP ACCOUNT

The AP reported on this story as follows:   "President-elect Donald Trump on Saturday condemned a growing push to force recounts in three states pivotal to his Nov. 8 victory, confronting the Green Party-backed effort for the first time even as he worked to address key Cabinet vacancies....  The New York billionaire, who charged the election was 'rigged' on a daily basis before his victory, called the developing recount effort 'a scam' in a statement released by his transition team....   Trump had been ignoring Green Party nominee Jill Stein's fight to revisit vote totals in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania. Wisconsin officials announced late Friday they are moving forward with the first presidential recount in state history....  'The people have spoken and the election is over,'  Trump declared Saturday. He added, 'We must accept this result and then look to the future.'..."   (See "TRUMP SLAMS RECOUNT PUSH AS 'A SCAM,' SAYS ELECTION IS OVER" by Steve Peoples, 11/26/16, Associated Press   [http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories/U/US_TRUMP?SITE=AP&SECTION=HOME&TEMPLATE=DEFAULT&CTIME=2016-11-26-16-59-12]).

An impersonator with a very little voice that gets smaller and smaller

Impersonator Barbara Burke's political insights were so deluded and her efforts were so ineffectual in 2016 that she now needs to again borrow our independent Brooklyn GOP thunder and usurp Galewyn Massey's good name to cover for the complete fiasco for her side in the election that just passed.

All the Hillarybots are shri-i-i-i-i-inki-i-i-i-ing, just like the rest of their beloved Democratic Party --- Barbara Burke is no exception.

It's sad, so sad.......

2016  Democrat Presidential Candidate Says  >>>  “White Voters” Showed in the 2016 General Election that They Believed the Democrat Party Didn’t Like White People


"WHITES" VOTED FOR REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL NOMINEE DONALD TRUMP BECAUSE   ---  “THEY DON’T THINK DEMOCRATS LIKE THEM”  ---  JIM WEBB [FORMER DEMOCRATIC SENATOR FROM VIRGINIA & 2016 DEMOCRATIC PARTY PRIMARY CANDIDATE FOR PRESIDENT] 


According to Webb,  with Trump’s winning campaign, we can now discuss how and why white people chose to vote  in an age of political correctness where previously you couldn’t even say the words  --  “White Working People”



According to a report in Newsmax,   “Former Virginia Sen. Jim Webb said Tuesday that whites voted for Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump because ‘they don’t think Democrats like them.’…   ‘The base of the Democratic Party used to be working people, regardless of race, ethnic, or ethnic identity sexual orientation, et cetera,’  Webb, who ran for president in the Democratic Party primaries last year, said on Fox News' ‘The Tucker Carlson Show.’…   ‘Over time and I think particularly over the last 8 years, the Democratic Party has moved into interest group politics and in many cases, white working people have become the whipping post. I think what you saw in this election here is white working people in these rural areas seeing that someone actually was articulating the fact that they had become disenfranchised and they gravitated toward Trump in my view.’…"   (See  “Jim Webb: White Voters 'Don't Think Democrats Like Them'” by Solange Reyner, 11/15/16,  Newsmax/ Politics   [http://www.newsmax.com/Politics/jim-webb-democrats-white-voters/2016/11/15/id/759092/]).


The Newsmax article closed with the following quote about white voters by the former Democrat Virginia Senator:   “….  ‘They don't align themselves with the Democratic Party because they don't think Democrats like them. And I think what we're seeing right now, finally, is the ability to discuss this issue in an age of political correctness where you can't even say the word white working people without having someone blanch,’ said Webb.”

FLASH UPDATE: THE " 'BIG LIE' ABOUT HILLARY CLINTON IN THE AFTER-MATH OF THE 2016 ELECTION --- THAT SHE WON SOMETHING CALLED 'THE POPULAR VOTE' " EDITION

FIRST:  THERE IS NO NATIONAL "POPULAR VOTE" IN PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS  ---  NO SUCH VOTE IS REFERRED TO IN THE U.S. CONSTITUTION 


SECOND:  THERE IS NO LAWFUL METHOD TO  >>> CERTIFY<<<  ANYTHING THAT MIGHT OTHERWISE EXIST BY SOME SIMPLE MATHEMATICAL CONCEPTION OF ADDING UP THE STATES' POPULAR VOTE TOTALS --  OR SOME RUNNING TALLY REFERRED TO AS THE NATIONAL "POPULAR VOTE" BY SOME NATIONAL MEDIA POOL IN A PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION


THIRD: HILLARY CLINTON'S PURPORTED SHARE OF ANY SO-CALLED POPULAR VOTE HAS ALMOST CERTAINLY BEEN INFLATED BY THE VOTES OF BETWEEN THREE AND FIVE MILLION UNLAWFUL VOTERS  ---  INCLUDING THE UNLAWFUL VOTES OF OVER TWO MILLION LEGAL AND ILLEGAL ALIENS


SO, IF THERE WERE A WAY OF CALCULATING AND CERTIFYING THE TOTAL OF LEGAL VOTES RECEIVED BY THE 2016 PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES, DOUBTLESS, DONALD TRUMP WOULD PROBABALY HAVE WON THAT VERSION OF A NATIONAL "POPULAR VOTE" BY TWO-AND-A-HALF TO THREE AND-A-HALF MILLION LAWFUL VOTES



I don't think any of that is really controversial or subject to any legitimate dispute, so I'll just leave it at that.....

FLASH UPDATE: THE "THINGS ARE SOLIDIFYING FOR A TRUMP PRESIDENCY --- BUT IT'S STILL TO EARLY TO CALL" EDITION


MANY PEOPLE, INCLUDING PRESIDENT OBAMA, ARE REFERRING TO DONALD TRUMP AS "THE PRESIDENT-ELECT"  ---  AND  ---  TRUMP'S MAIN OPPONENT, HILLARY CLINTON HAS CONCEDED THE 2016 ELECTION


MY HIDDEN PRINCIPAL HAS BEEN PUSHING ME TO ANNOUNCE THAT DONALD TRUMP HAS BEEN ELECTED TO BE THE 45TH POTUS BY VIRTUE OF HIS WINNING IN ENOUGH STATES THAT HE WILL HAVE A SUBSTANTIAL MAJORITY OF THE CONSTITUTIONALLY NECESSARY PRESIDENTIAL ELECTORS


NONETHELESS,  THE "DECISION DESK" HERE AT GALEWYN MASSEY'S "BROOKLYN INDEPENDENT GOP FOUNTAINHEAD" STILL SEES THE  END OF THE 2016 PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN AS "TO EARLY TO CALL" ---  HOWEVER,  THIS BLOG WILL CONCEDE THAT DONALD TRUMP IS THE >>> PRESUMPTIVE <<<  PRESIDENT-ELECT



In spite of intense pressure on me to make a final call in the 2016 Presidential Election by my wealthy friend and financial backer, who lives in a rather large mansion with very little furniture overlooking the New Jersey shorefront;  I'd rather be overly-correct than needlessly fast..... 

After all, I still remember the Bush-Gore fiasco in 2000 that went all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court..... 

They say that "It ain't over 'til the fat lady sings..."  ---   and though Hillary has spoken, I ain't heard her or Linda  Ronstadt singing nothin' so far (Yes, like Donald Trump,  I do occasionally denigrate some women and/or, occasionally, the afflicted).

Cutting through all the spin about the polls --- Trump is close, but Hillary is still ahead.....

Trump has some "MO..." ---  But Hillary is still in her groove ---  AND ---   HRC has the easier and wider path to an Electoral College victory


Several states are now called "toss-ups" and or "near toss-ups"  ---  BUT ---  Trump has to win almost all of them to win the big enchilada, and Hillary only needs a few 


In two days, Trump has lost about half a point in the RCP Average of polls (.5%) --- and ---  the RCP average now stands at Clinton - 45.0%  & Trump 42.7%, with Johnson - 4.8% & Stein - 2.1% ....  (and 5.4% ???)


The prospective electoral vote count based on RCP's state by state polling averages shows Hillary Clinton with 216 likely electoral votes; Trump with 164 electors headed toward his column; and 158 electors being chosen in what are called the "toss-up" states.....

FLASH UPDATE:  THE  “MAYBE,  COMEY AND THE FBI DECIDED TO FIRE BACK WITH SOME MORE STUFF ABOUT THE CLINTONS”  EDITION


EVERYBODY SAYS THAT IT IS  “ODD TIMING”  THAT THE FBI RELEASED THE CLINTON-RICH PARDON PAPERS YESTERDAY  ---  MAYBE THERE WAS NOTHING ODD ABOUT THE TIMING AT ALL  ---  MAYBE IT WAS JUST SOME J.EDGAR HOOVER OLD-STYLE FBI HARDBALL

 

PEOPLE SAID THAT HILLARY AND HER FOLKS MIGHT HAVE MADE A BIG MISTAKE GOING BACK AT FBI DIRECTOR COMEY  --  DIRECTLY  ---  THE WAY SHE AND THEY DID  ---  MAYBE THIS WAS COMEY & CO’S WAY OF SAYING  ---  “DON’T DO THAT AGAIN” 


NOW, THE CLINTON FOLKS >>> HAVE TO RESPOND <<< TO THE LATEST FBI “HIT” AS WELL  ---  AND WHINE SOME MORE THAT THE FBI IS PICKING ON THEM


BUT POLITICS AIN'T BEANBAG  ---  AND IF THE FBI IS BACK INTO POLITICS AGAIN, LIKE BEFORE WATERGATE ---  IT'LL BE MORE LIKE GOOD OLD-FASHIONED COUNTRY HARDBALL


Here’s the NPR take on the story:   Just one week from Election Day, the FBI has made a somewhat puzzling release of information related to a controversial pardon Bill Clinton made on his last day in office almost 16 years ago….   On Tuesday, the law enforcement agency released documents related to the former president's pardon of Marc Rich, a former hedge-fund manager who had been indicted on multiple counts of tax evasion, wire fraud and racketeering….   Hillary Clinton's campaign immediately questioned the release, which came from an FBI Twitter account that had been dormant for more than a year up until this past Sunday. The new documents come just days after FBI Director James Comey announced last week that the agency was reviewing new emails possibly related to the former secretary of state's private server. Clinton spokesman Brian Fallon called it an "odd" decision….” (SeeMore Surprises: FBI Releases Files On Bill Clinton's Pardon Of Marc Rich” by Jessica Taylor, 11/1/16, NPR/ Politics [http://www.npr.org/2016/11/01/500297580/more-surprises-fbi-releases-files-on-bill-clintons-pardon-of-marc-rich]).

You might like this vintage of the Clintons’ and their supporters latest whine a little better ---  The surprise tweet from a little-used FBI account came about 1 p.m. Tuesday, announcing that the agency had published on its website 129 pages of internal documents related to a years-old investigation into former president Bill Clinton's pardon of a fugitive Democratic donor….  The seemingly random reminder of one of the darkest chapters of the Clinton presidency a week before the election drew an immediate rebuke from Hillary Clinton's campaign - with its spokesman tweeting that the FBI's move was "odd" and asking whether the agency planned to publish unflattering records about Republican candidate Donald Trump….   "Will FBI be posting docs on Trump's housing discrimination in '70s?" asked Brian Fallon….   For the second time in five days, the FBI had moved exactly to the place the nation's chief law enforcement agency usually strives to avoid: smack in the middle of partisan fighting over a national election, just days before the vote….”  (See  “After release of Bill Clinton archive, FBI finds itself caught in a partisan fray” Tom Hamburger & Sari Horwitz, 11/1/16,  Chicago Tribune/ Tribune News Service  [http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/nationworld/politics/ct-fbi-archive-bill-clinton-20161101-story.html]).

I think that everybody might be missing the real story here  ---  THE FBI DOESN’T LIKE THE CLINTONS AND THEY DON’T WANT TO HAVE TO WORK UNDER ANOTHER PRESIDENT  CLINTON  ---  AND THEY ARE WILLING TO DO WHAT IT TAKES TO STOP THEM/HER IN THEIR/HER TRACKS. (Frankly, I didn’t think that an internal government coup against Hillary would start until AFTER the election.) 

Wait and see if there's something formal coming from the FBI about a criminal investigation into >>> The Clinton Foundation and/or The Clinton Global Initiative.  ---  Oh ! Oh !  This might be good too >>> something formal about Deputy Director Andrew McCabe >>> being taken OFF of the Hillary Clinton E-mails investigation..... (Some Republican Chairmen had been asking why he is still on the case.)
