Remember way, waaay back--three whole weeks ago--when Hilliary and every member of the Democrat-loving Lying Media were screaming about Trump refusing to pledge to accept the results of the election?
Well, Democrats are known for being...extremely flexible when it comes to their proclaimed standards. And now New York Magazine reports that, sure enough...
Voting-rights attorney John Bonifaz and J. Alex Halderman, director of the University of Michigan Center for Computer Security and Society
believes they’ve found evidence that vote totals in Wisconsin,
Michigan, and Pennsylvania may have been manipulated or hacked. The
group is so far not speaking on the record about their findings but is
focused on lobbying the Clinton team privately.
Last week the pair reportedly told Clinton campaign honchos that in Wisconsin, Clinton received 7 percent
fewer votes in counties that used electronic voting machines
than in counties that used paper ballots. They don't say how this may have happened, just that based on their claim, they contend as many as 30,000 votes for Clinton may have..um...vanished. Clinton lost Wisconsin by 27,000.
The pair doesn't claim to have any proof of hacking or vote fraud but are
arguing to the campaign that the suspicious pattern merits an
independent review — "especially in light of the fact that the Obama
White House has accused the Russian government of hacking the Democratic
Well there ya go then: If duh emperor has *accused* the Russkies of hacking the DNC, that should convince anyone that they hacked the election too, eh?
Wait, I thought Wikileaks said the source of the DNC hacks was that the utterly brilliant, superbly cunning John Podesta fell for a "phishing scheme." But hey, that's almost the same thing, so...
to current tallies, Trump has 290 Electoral College votes to
Clinton’s 232, with Michigan’s 16 votes still not awarded because the tally there is still too close to call. To give Clinton the presidency would require reversing the results
not only in Wisconsin but also Pennsylvania, in addition to winning Michigan.
Of course Clinton has also been helped by mysterious phone calls to electoral-college "electors" threatening them with death if they vote for Trump, even though their states voted for him. Amazingly, many states don't require their electors to cast their vote according
to the winner of their states. At least six electors from states Trump won have
said they wouldn't vote for Trump.
Now, given the power at stake here, I wouldn't blame Clinton's advisors for challenging the election results. I just think it's funny as hell that the media and the entire Left establishment were abolutely incensed that Trump wouldn't pledge to accept the results. But now that their side seems to have lost, suddenly they're just totally fine with behavior they called "absolutely treasonous" and "a threat to our way of life" just over two weeks ago.
Clinton communications director Jennifer
Palmieri did not respond to a request for comment. But some Clinton
allies are intent on pushing the issue. This afternoon, Huma Abedin’s
sister Heba encouraged
her Facebook followers to call the Justice Department and demand a full audit of the close states. “Call the DOJ…and tell them you want the votes audited,” she
So let's play "prediction:" How many of you think a single member of the Lying Media will ask Hilliary if she'll tell her campaign to stop the push for a recount?
How many of you think the Dems will suddenly "find" a dozen Hilliary voters who claim that their electronic voting machine switched their vote to Trump--just as scores of Republican voters say happened to them?
If the Clinton team does decide to push for a recount, how many think the oh-so-partisan Loretta Lynch will recommend that a recount be held--even though the individual states are supposed to conduct and certify their own vote results?
Finally, if a recount is held in the close states, how many of you think dozens of uncounted ballot boxes will suddenly, mysteriously appear, reportedly found in car trunks or closets?
Oh, we should also point out that before the election, the Dems and Mainstream Media were loudly claiming that any vote fraud "couldn't possibly be enough to steal the election." They were saying that to pre-emptively defeat any claims by conservatives that Hilliary had won by fraud. But now? Oooh, totally different situation, citizen.
