  • There is something really wrong with the Detroit/Wayne county vote totals

    Stein has targeted about 85,000 ‘blank votes’ or ‘no-votes’. These are votes that voted but did not mark or vote for president. In other words, some voters chose not to vote for either Clinton or Trump. Many people know of such voters so it’s not surprising or unexpected.

    The 85,000 votes you mention may be the 85,000 that Stein mentioned.

    Trump won by about 11,000 and Stein thinks there are at least that number in the 85,000 no-votes. She wants to create a ‘hanging chad’ situation where stray marks, smudges, etc. are indicating a vote for Clinton.

    Gore is one of the ringleaders of the worldwide global baloney warming scam. To know the network requires cozying up to one of its leaders, does it not?

    There is a radical wealthy Imam inside the USA who controls much of what Erdogan and others in power do in Turkey.

    To me, Turkey as Asia Minor is an extension of the Holy land of the New Testament and should be returned to Christianity.

    Because of its history and importance to Christianity, Constantinople has been respected as an international cosmopolitan center but that status is dissipating.

    Flipping two states, she still needs to stop one state’s electors from voting.

    Flipping two states is more difficult than stopping two states’ electors from voting and the latter would have Trump winning.

    To win, Clinton would need to flip the three states or flip two AND stop the third’s electors from voting.

    Trump has the leverage in every other scenario and still has court action opportunities to stop Clinton.

    Yes, the totals I posted were before those latest counts.

    But the outcome hasn’t changed. Trump is still the winner.

    What you should be aware of, and I don’t have the link handy right now, is that in MI, Stein is eying the blank votes or no-votes where voters voted for neither Clinton nor Trump.

    In MI, the margin of victory was about 11,000 but the no-votes number about 85,000. Stein is thinking there are at least 11,000 or so no-votes that can be turned for Clinton.

    That’s what they are after.

    So the threat is real in theory and to democrats, this angle is their goal because trillions of dollars are at stake. They don’t care what it looks like. They don’t care who accuses them of criminal this and criminal that. Winning is everything and will empower them to rewrite history going forward.

    It really is a coup d’etat.

    And they really don’t care what anyone on Trump’s side thinks about what they are doing and how they are doing it. Millions of their supporters don’t care either. They just want Trump and the ‘Alt-Right’ gone.

    On any no-vote if there is a smudge mark closer to Clinton than to Trump, it will be called a vote for Clinton. If any GOP canvasser/watcher disagrees, the election official will rule for Clinton.

    These people are mafia-like criminals. They simply don’t care about the crimes they commit.

    Trump’s lawyers must use time and schedule, along with a GOP Congress to their advantage. They must challenge Stein/Clinton why the other states were not counted that had smaller voter margins of victory for Clinton.

    Stein/Clinton cannot cherry pick states any more than Gore cherry picked counties in FL in 2000.

    Actually, it is clear in the law and the Constitution.

    It is clearly whoever has the most Elector votes is the winner, meaning the majority.

    And yes, if a state’s electors do not cast their votes on their election day which is set by Congress to be December 19 of this year, then those elector votes are subtracted from the total of 535 and a new majority threshold is in works.

    What is the legal constitutional basis for this Judge’s decision?

    There must be some reason that plaintiffs wrote in their pleading that the Judge relied on.

    Stein was quoted as saying to wit: “one can’t know if there something wrong until one looks at it”.

    In other words, she is embarking on a fishing expedition. She will target the presidential no votes, where a voter voted for neither candidate for president. Then she will attempt to ‘divine’ if a no vote was actually a ‘no’ or whether a smudge, stray mark, discoloration, or proximate mark was actually a vote for Clinton. It is the Florida 2000 hanging chad approach.

    Yes, there were indeed many intended ‘no’ votes but Stein is intending to show that not all were intentional and that more than the margin of victory were actually votes for Clinton that were misread or mishandled.

    I believe the margin of victory in MI was on the order of 10,000 and the number of no-votes was on the order of 85,000. So Stein could tip MI to Clinton in theory.

    But she will have to do the same in WI and PA to change the election outcome.

    Now that the lawyers for Stein have withdrawn from PA state courts and focused on taking their complaint to a federal court, it does seem as though they are judge shopping in federal courts to find decisions that allow them to take PA.

    But then they will need to take WI.

    Note that they are pursuing statewide recounts in each of WI, PA, and MI. This is clearly in response to the USSC decision in Gore v. Bush whereby the recounting was halted in FL because it was decided that Gore could not cherry pick counties, that a full FL recount would be necessary.

    I’ll say it again that the dems are going to use every means at their disposal no matter how outrageous to throw the election.

    Lawyers for Trump need to take this to a federal appeals court NOW and get a ruling in their favor that will be upheld by a deadlocked USSC. It needs to be done BEFORE the Stein/Clinton people have a chance to have an appellate ruling favorable to them because a deadlocked USSC leaves a lower court ruling in place.

    Do not for a moment think that these state’s margins will protect Trump’s victory. These people are criminals of the political class who could care less if they are seen as criminals. They will pull out all the stops to get a RULING that favors them and then they will use techniques they know so well to call a smudge mark to be a Clinton vote. They don’t care how ridiculous or outrageous it looks, it only matters that the smudge was closer to the Clinton oval than the Trump oval. And if any GOP canvassers disagree, the democrat election official will make a decision for the smudge.

    Yes, it will be that ludicrous because they know if they win, there is nothing the opposition can do except shriek. Winners write the history going forward. It doesn’t matter if the theft was transparent. possession is 9/10’s of the law.

    There is a ray of hope should the above be seen as a growing albeit shocking reality.

    If lawyers for Trump can delay the recount outcome until past December 19, then PA. WI, MI electoral votes can be left out of the Electoral College vote and Trump still wins the majority of the EC votes (do the arithmetic).

    Even if recounts of PA, WI, MI came out in favor of Clinton after December 19, the votes would be moot but such a post-December 19 recount would never happen.

    Stein/Clinton’s lawyers might attempt to obtain a fed court ruling that forced the EC to vote at a date set by the court. But there could be a problem as the US Constitution calls out Congress as having the authority for setting dates for Electors to meet and vote and it must be uniform.

    ARTICLE II, SECTION 1, CLAUSE 4
    “The Congress may determine the Time of chusing [sic] the Electors, and the Day on which they shall give their Votes; which Day shall be the same throughout the United States.”

    But this is not to say the dem lawyers won’t forge ahead through a judge shopped court to try and stop the EC from voting on December 19. But then Congress can meet in emergency session to reaffirm the December 19 date.

    The key strategy is them for the Trump lawyer team to delay recounts until past December 19. How might this be done?

    One way for Trump lawyers to move on this is to file in district court or better an appeals court to delay recount certification until after the Stein/Clinton explain why other states where Trump lost by lesser numbers of voters were not recounted by Stein/Clinton. This would be an extension of Gore v. Bush 2000 taken from FL to the nation itself. One cannot cherry pick states with the aim of overturning an election just as one cannot cherry pick counties within a state with the same aim. The pleading and associated arguments should take well past the December 19 EC election day.

    At the same time, request Congress to vote to reaffirm the December 19 election day for Electors in each state to cast their votes.

    Here is a list of the top ten states by smallest margins won/lost:

    1. Michigan 0.3 percent
    Trump 47.6 percent, Clinton 47.3 percent
    Difference: 13,080 votes

    2. New Hampshire 0.4 percent

    5. Florida 1.2 percent

    You actually have a valid point. If Islam is allowed to carry on in the face of the ‘Great Satan’, then it is because Allah is protecting them; so they think.

    It has nothing to do with America showing restraint and proportionate response.

    To transform Islam requires convincing them that Allah has allowed America to destroy some of its exalted relics and sites with an eminent destruction of more of the same. They will then think Allah is displeased with them and will wonder why.

    It is at this point of introspection that the Muslim adherent can be drilled that the ‘true’ Islam follower must wage the battle inside their own soul, that part of the soul that contains the infidel must be fought on the inside and never taken outside to other beings. The infidel behavior of others is never to be examined except by each person unto its own. The programming impulse to murder infidels outside oneself must be neutralized. In fact, to even question another person of their behavior to Islam is to be forbidden. It is all of it, to be contained inside each individual. There is to be no collective.

    The teachings of Islam are to be considered as historical reading, not as a contemporary manifesto. The interpretation of such reading is to be sought from Islamic scholars who are aware of the dire consequences of taking up literal jihad according to the historical documents.

    A destruction of an exalted site of Islam will serve as a new chapter of Islamic history that points to the horrible consequences of going against the introspective and secular approaches described above.

    A current Muslim jihadist will have two choices, they can kill themselves or they can become defanged by struggling to battle the infidel that resides within them. In the latter case, the ‘peaceful Muslim’ is to be rewarded with work, family, status, and a standard of living.

    All other persons originating from Muslim culture can go a secular route or convert to a belief system of their choosing, the latter of a Christian persuasion preferred.

    The above is the approach of Mustafa Atatürk. If he isn’t already, he should be required reading in the War College on how to defeat Radical Islam ideology.

    This writer insinuates Congress is moving to stop Trump from following through with illegal alien enforcement and border security.

    I don’t see Congress as having much to do other that reauthorize funding or taxes for constructing the wall.

    The laws for illegal alien roundup and deportation are already on the books. The border wall construction is already authorized from the Bush 43 years but was never followed through on.

    So it won’t be the laws that President Trump needs so much as the new tariffs and taxes to pay for the wall. And the taxes won’t be borne on the backs of American taxpayers as it will be by excise taxes on foreigners without a work visa who wire money transfer remittances to Mexico and Central America.

    So President Trump needs tariff and excise tax authority for those purposes. If RINO Ryan in Congress won’t follow through with that mandate given President Trump by the American people, I may personally travel to Wisconsin to meet with Paul Nehlen on how to get rid of this SOB in 2018. I believe another run by Nehlen in 2018 should be done regardless.

    So I walked into a Microsoft Store with my 11-yr-old son.

    First, I should say I restrict his screen time as much as I can and require him to complete all homework and chores before having access to Xbox, etc.

    So I’m in the store to look at the new Surface products which I love. I am going to consider if I should upgrade my Surface Pro 3 to a Surface Book, leaving him the SP3 for homework and play. He uses it quite a bit anyways so it would become 100% his. Of course, he’s negotiating for a Surface Book as well but tells me he might settle for a Surface Book 4. At 11 years old, did he read ‘The Art of the Deal’ without me knowing about it? Because he acts like he’s mastered some of the material.

    So before we hit the Surface island we see a setup in the corner with an HTC VR headset demo area cordoned off with a waiting entry. No one was in line at the demo corner at the time so he takes me by the hand and leads me to it. So much for my plans to survey the Surface line. At the entry. we find one person is in the demo area wrapping up their demo time. The person with the VR headset is apparently not wanting to leave but the MS demo area attendant is politely having them wrap it up as we are waiting in the line.

    As the demo area attendant approaches us, I am told that only one person is allowed at a time. As the entry is opened, I point to my 11-yr-old as the tester and player for the VR set. My son is asked how old he is and he answers truthfully that he is 11 years old. The attendant quickly informs me that only 13 and up are allowed in the demo area. Of course, my son is disappointed as he asks me to check it out for him.

    The demo runs about 5 to 10 minutes and so I enter the area and don the VR headset and take the controller. I am thinking I detest video games and have no time for such nonsense. 10 minutes later the attendant is politely hinting I need to wrap it up as there are others in line now. I think ‘no way’ and I say let me check out a few more things such as shooting the bow and arrow, touching the sharks, diving around the sunken wreck, etc.

    I am mesmerized.

    Ok, I am thinking I can resist just about any addiction in life but this one will be hard to beat. The reality looks well, like ‘reality’, almost too real; 4k HDR enhanced imagery in immersed 3D and I’m a kid again. It puts everything else to shame. It makes flat screen anything look lame.

    Ok, so I can see this in the future in every home with people spending evenings ‘experiencing’ rather than ‘watching’ a movie or a documentary, etc. Rather than watching the latest reincarnation of Starwars or Jurassic World, I could be inside the movie running for my life.

    Now as to why the demo attendant said the demo was restricted to 13 and up? She said it had to do with kids possibly having seizures and to prevent the liability of that, etc. I mentioned on my way out that my kid wouldn’t have a seizure, I would, especially if one of Spielberg’s T-Rex’s was running after me causing the ground under my feet to shake like a terrifying seismic fault in play. Seizures? That might be understating it.

    Good points. They really are a third world country that ‘emerged’ to a second world country only because of the policies put in place by their northern first world neighbor.

    But those same policies that have lifted Mexico up have also brought America down. That’s the point.

    The more America declines, the more Mexico benefits to the point they are wishing America disintegrates which is exactly what is seen now.

    Those that are close to upper crust Mexicans and their families know exactly what I am talking about. They comment frequently how ‘old’ and aging Americans are, how they are declining and don’t want to work. They make these comments with a thin smile as if they are optimistic about the benefits to be received as America dies.

    And they also refuse to acknowledge America is America in the sense that they also consider themselves as ‘Americans’. Their intent is to change the language, culture, terms, and definitions so that they are their own masters which although laudable is based on taking over another culture, and that business model is destined to fail similarly to a parasite devouring its host. So they can never be their own masters because their whole MO is on finding other masters to absorb.

    They care not for the magnanimity that Americans have shown them for the last many decades. They want to take the means of production from Americans and become decision makers about the fruits of that production. Their opportunity is about ‘taking over’, not about creating prosperity de novo.

    Everything of quality in Mexico is an offshoot of American standards. The idea was to ‘raise them up’ as a first world partner but as you pointed out, they are unable to sustain themselves in that rank. Culturally, they can’t ever reach first world status because they do not have marketing power.

    Here’s a takeaway from my knowledge and experience about what may happen to Mexican industry as they start to lose the jobs that they’ve taken from Americans: Japan will ramp up production as well as Middle Eastern partners and China. But this will go slow and sputter because these partners have other third world populations to consider including some large ones in their own backyards.

    Going forward years into a Trump presidency, Americans will have prosperity they haven’t seen in a decade or more. This prosperity will be American born and be possibly larger than at any other period of its history. The export of this prosperity will be to trade partners who have products to export in return. Cheap labor will not be a returnable trade and at root, that’s all that Mexico has to offer.

    Stein is an agent for Clinton. The solid certain evidence has been put before here and she has chosen to ignore it.

    The evidence is simply in the states she has chosen to recount. All of them are states lost by Clinton that were expected to win. There are states that Trump lost by far fewer voters and Stein did not pick even one. That is solid proof she is not doing this for ‘election integrity’.

  • Pope Warns Trump: Do Not Back Away from UN Climate Pact – Pope Declares ‘Crisis of Climatic Change’

    All of the third worlders and their enablers are on the climate change bandwagon because it represents the pathway to a global tax and redistribution.

    But all third worlders are run by dictators who will take 9 of every 10 dollars of redistribution.

    This Pope is from a third world country that was a first world country a hundred years ago. So he grew up and matured in a time when Argentina was declining to a state like Mexico.

    It was a great mistake to have a leader chosen from a third world country. Jesus himself came from a royal family in a nation with a glorious history.

    Whether a leader is chosen from a royal lineage or from the ranks of the poor, the most important criterion should be wisdom. It is vital to have great wisdom mixed with humility.

    They can suffer more than just having federal funds withheld.

    The original tax provisions of the US Constitution allow for direct taxes to be raised to pay for federal forces to take care of a problem like this.

    So if they don’t use their own resources, they will pay the federal government to use its resources.

    And this is one tax I would wholeheartedly support.

    Because when people wake up and realize they will be paying for these effing cities and their mayors to play their games, then all hell is going to break loose on them.

    Now is the time to get this done because both Congress and the press are the most mistrusted and unpopular institutions and organs today.

    There is circumstantial evidence that supports a Stein-Castro-Clinton connection.

    First, Stein has a worship fetish for Fidel Castro. That’s documented. It’s easy to find confirmation of this.

    Second, news reports say that Fidel Castro was severely distraught when he was told Clinton had lost the election and that this news may have brought on a condition leading to his death. The evidence of this is not solid but it did not arise from any conspiracy source nor did it delve into other matters other than Fidel Castro’s reaction to the election news.

    Third, the recall petition of Stein was funded substantially by Soros. The evidence of this is circumstantial but is substantial enough to draw a strong inference. Therein lies the connection to Clinton.

    The missing link so far is the connection between Soros and Castro, but maybe such a link is unnecessary. Both Soros and Castro have been associated via many of the various groups they back. The Soros Group is known to be plotting between 2015 and 2018 to add 10 million progressive voters of Latino origins and to use front SJW groups to facilitate the establishment of this new voting bloc. This lines up with Castro’s subversion. Both Soros and Castro back the same types of ‘action groups’.

    Stein is then doing this out of some bizarre notion that she is a revolutionary akin to a female American Fidel Castro. As a Castro acolyte, she likely knew Castro’s desire to see Clinton as President. Clinton announces she is ‘participating’ with Stein. The money has been coming from Soros. Stein chooses the blue swing states MI, WI, PA that Clinton lost and ignores the states that Trump lost where the losing margin of voters is smaller.

    If Stein was doing it for money, she would also include the states that Trump barely lost. But she is certainly working now as an agent for Clinton, why? It could be a unified front against Trump but I think it is more a crazy romantic notion that she’s doing it for the legacy of Fidel Castro. Her worship of him is bizarre and disturbing.

    This just in:

    > “The data from the Exit Polls conducted by Edison Research for the National Election Pool show Mr. Che to be correct – an extremely small portion of the voting public (only 2%) told our exit pollsters they had a favorable view of both. While most voters did have a favorable view of one of the two major candidates – an astonishing 18% of the electorate told us they had an unfavorable opinion of both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. And this is the group that won the election for Trump”

    http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3499351/posts

    Let’s repeat the pertinent information in the above:

    “an ***astonishing 18%*** of the electorate told us they had an unfavorable opinion of both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.”

    Now contrast this exit poll information data with what Stein said in what follows here:

    > “In Michigan, Trump won by 11,000 votes. But there were 85,000 ‘blank votes’ in which people voted for other races but they left the presidential race blank. That is far higher than any election in history.”

    The 85,000 ‘blank votes’ for President were out of about 4.8 million votes cast in MI, so that the 85,000 represent less than 2 percent of all votes.

    Stein is lying.

    She’s asking for hand recounts to ‘divine the intent’ of voters that refrained from voting for any preid3ntial candidate.

    The reason Stein wants a ‘hand recount’ in WI is likely the same as why she wants it in MI.

    She and her lawyers have found there were 85,000 ballots in MI that were voted but there was no vote for the Office of President. In other words, as we would expect, there were people that decided not to vote for President.

    The number of cast votes in MI was about 4.8 million. So 85,000 non-President votes amount to less than 2% of those that voted.

    But Stein wants to hand count those 85,000 to ‘divine’ voter intent. She wants to see if there are any marks around the oval for Hillary that would indicate the voter meant to vote for Hillary, a hanging chad type scenario.

    The most damning evidence against Stein is seen in the question of why she chose WI, MI, PA which are states that Clinton lost and not states that Trump lost by smaller margins such as NH. Stein was asked this question several times and she ignored it, refusing to answer. So she’s working for Clinton, why? Because Fidel Castro wanted Clinton and Stein is a Castro worshipper (it’s true; she’s got a screw loose about Cuba and Castro).

    Here’s a list of the 10 closest 2016 states ranked from narrowest margin by percentage to widest:

    Difference: 68,236 votes (99 percent reporting)

    5. Florida 1.2 percent

    This is great news!

    It should cause the collapse of the other recounts because without PA, it is impossible for the election to be thrown.

    Unless Stein/Clinton/Soros seek to recount a slew of other states, this should be the final nail in the Clinton coffin.

    > “In Michigan, Trump won by 11,000 votes. But there were 85,000 ‘blank votes’ in which people voted for other races but they left the presidential race blank. That is far higher than any election in history.”

    So people that couldn’t vote for Clinton and also couldn’t vote for Trump are now the target?

    Hasn’t a second hand count already been done in Michigan as per procedure?

    > “A hand count of the ballots could determine if the box was merely checked, but the oval not filled in. If so, it will be counted. This can make a difference in the outcome.”

    A third hand count?

    There it is. The window is open to check, scratch, tear, smudge over Clinton’s oval and the democrat criminals will call it as a vote for her.

    There will be Trump people watching but are they really in the Trump camp? Will they be distracted or confused by design or intention?

    Trump will file a request to deny the recount. If the Michigan SOS dismisses the request, we will know the fix is in.

    I wish I could say something positive but unfortunately, I witnessed firsthand how they steal elections twice in the 2000s in my state, one for Governor and one for US Senator.

    Once seen, it is impossible to hand wave away these emerging developments. I almost wish I wasn’t ‘wise’.

    > “... how interesting those are the 3 states that Hillary wants to get her paws on.”

    Well a young Brit on YouTube who is street smart, articulate and quick asked a very important question to Stein and the question by itself is an observation that reveals with 100% proof/certainty that Stein is acting as an agent for Clinton.

    The evidence is that she chose only 3 states that Clinton lost and none where Clinton won.

    In other words, if she was truly an independent agent for election integrity, she would have also chosen states that Trump lost by much smaller margins.

    So her biased choices in this matter reveal what’s up. She’s a snake.

    As far as attributing the stop of the electronic steal to inside spooks, I’ll run with that because it makes sense with the rest of the theory. Not sure though that a missile threat fits. I think NSA types have control of just about anything transmitting over the internet. I believe they could have the capability to change any information they want in active traffic. It will be interesting to hear Snowden’s take on all this.
