Trump allies try to freeze recount efforts

Allies of Donald Trump are trying to freeze recount efforts in Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin — three states in which the president-elect narrowly beat Hillary Clinton — as they seek to preserve the legitimacy of Trump’s win.

A team of Trump attorneys filed a lawsuit in Pennsylvania late Thursday requesting a dismissal of Green Party nominee Jill Stein’s recount effort, arguing that she lacks a valid claim and merely “alleges speculative illegality.”

On Friday morning, Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette filed a lawsuit to stop the recount there, a move that came hours after Trump attorneys had filed a complaint to block the proceedings.

And soon after, a pro-Trump super PAC filed suit in Wisconsin, insisting Stein’s recount push could “unjustifiably cast doubt upon the legitimacy of President-Elect Donald J. Trump’s victory.”

While there’s no indication of coordination among the pro-Trump entities and the Republican state attorney general, they all filed lawsuits against Stein’s recount efforts within 12 hours or so. Stein’s campaign has led the recount charge, but it wasn’t until the Clinton campaign joined the effort that it really gained traction nationwide.

    I would have made a deal with this people: recount Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania, but also recount the large states where Hillary supposedly won, especially the ones with a known large illegal population. It could have stop the recount efforts altogether.

    This recount is so stupid it would be like the Bluejays demanding a recount of the scores in the World Series this year and they were not even in the series.
    Stein was really never in the race and never could have won.

    Much like the demoRAT party,The kids”basement dwellews” filed into class Monday morning.

    They were all very excited..

    Their weekend assignment was to sell something, and then give a talk on salesmanship.

    Little Sally led off. “I sold Girl Scout cookies and I made $30” she said proudly. “My sales approach was to appeal to the customer’s civil spirit, and I credit that approach for my obvious success.”

    “Very good”, said the teacher.

    Little Debbie was next. “I sold magazines” she said. “I made $45 and I explained to everyone that magazines would keep them up on current events.”

    “Very good, Debbie”, said the teacher.

    Eventually, it was Little Johnny’s turn. The teacher held her breath.

    Little Johnny walked to the front of the classroom, and dumped a box full of cash on the teacher’s desk. “$2,467”, he said.

    “$2,467!” cried the teacher, “What in the world were you selling?”

    “Toothbrushes”, said Little Johnny.

    “Toothbrushes” echoed the teacher. “How could you possibly sell enough tooth brushes to make that much money?”

    “I found the busiest corner in town”, said Little Johnny. “I set up a Dip & Chip stand, and I gave everybody who walked by a free sample.” They all said the same thing: “Hey, this tastes like dog poop!”

    Then I would say, “It is dog poop. Wanna buy a toothbrush?

    I used the President Obama method of giving you some krap, dressing
    it up so it looks good, telling you it’s free, and then making you pay to get the bad taste out of your mouth.” LIBERALISM Is It Mental Illness or Demonic Oppression?

    The “recount” appears to be just an attempt to deny Trump the electors from three states that he won. Since there was no evidence of fraud and the filing was as late as possible to possibly prevent the certification because the count wouldn’t be complete before the deadline, the courts should strike down the attempted “recount”. Should they not, the RNC should immediately petition for recount all of the available states where recounts can still be made won by Clinton, denying her any electors from those states.
