  • Election argument ends with assault, Donora police say

    12/02/2016 9:54:59 PM PST · by Impala64ssa · 26 replies
    An argument over the recent presidential election in the lobby of a Donora high-rise apartment complex ended with a resident of the building hitting a 69-year-old woman over the head with a chair, police said. Matthew Pugh, 27, of Donora Towers, 685 Meldon Ave., was arrested Wednesday on a warrant obtained by Donora police on charges of attempted homicide, aggravated assault, simple assault and reckless endangerment. Borough police were called to the apartment complex Nov. 20. Witnesses told police that Pugh and the woman, also a Donora Towers resident, were in the lobby when they got into a disagreement about...

    In anticipation of a Trump loss, Hillary Clinton and her cohorts professed that anything other than graceful acceptance of the loss would “threaten democracy.”  But now that Trump has won, the left has hypocritically become unhinged.  After violent protests, petitions to eradicate the electoral college, and coddling college age students to miss class, delay exams and obtain psychotherapy to deal with the “trauma” of the election results, liberal political elites are in fear that the left will at last, calm down and accept the results.  They cannot accept such complacency.   Democrats got defeated in a sweep across the nation,...

    Every four years Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government hosts aides from opposing campaigns for a frank postmortem of the presidential election. Harvard has been doing this since 1972 and usually the discussions are respectful. But according to the Washington Post, that’s not the case this year. When Trump’s team praised Steve Bannon, former Clinton communications director Jennifer Palmieri lashed out. .... Joel Benenson, another Clinton strategist said, “There were dog whistles sent out to people.. . .Look at your rallies. He delivered it.” Conway responded, “Guys, I can tell you are angry, but wow.” She added, “Hashtag he’s your president. How’s that?...

    The first day of the Wisconsin recount is over, and, perhaps ironically (or not, depending on your perspective), it was Green Party candidate Jill Stein who gained the most votes in the updated returns. However, on December 2, according to the Wisconsin State Journal, a group of Donald Trump supporters asked a federal judge to stop the recount, saying it violates equal protection clauses because the state doesn’t have uniform standards for recounts and could miss the December 13 federal deadline for completing election results because of it. Stein’s vote tally increased by 17 votes (she went from 7 votes...

    Wisconsin Representative Sean Duffy (R-WI) went on with Tucker Carlson tonight to discuss the recount in Wisconsin.   Duffy said Democrats and far left Green Party supporters are stalling the recount in Dane County Wisconsin, where Madison is located. The county is holding a hand recount. The recount will not be completed by the deadline on December 20th. Therefore, according to Rep. Duffy, the state will quite possibly be forced to forfeit their electoral votes.   This was the plan all along. Democrats knew they couldn’t make up 20,000 votes.

  • Michigan's Attorney General Just Threw A Massive Wrench Into Jill Stein's Recount

    12/02/2016 11:42:20 AM PST · by UMCRevMom@aol.com · 30 replies
    Jill Stein has been relentlessly pushing for pointless recounts in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Michigan - three typically blue states that Trump managed to turn red this year. A recount is already underway in Wisconsin, although it is turning out to be far more costly than Stein had counted on and a judge recently ruled against her demand that every ballot be counted by hand. Trump won the Badger State by 22,000 votes. Stein's next target is Michigan, which Trump won by a narrower margin of just under 11,000 votes. She filed a petition demanding a recount on Wednesday. In response,...

And yes, Schuette is a very partisan Republican and has been one for a long time. And oh yes, he would certainly like to be our next governor. But no matter who he is, his legal argument is awfully solid that there is no valid reason for a recount of the presidential race in Michigan. It would be extremely time-consuming and expensive - and yes, the state would bear a huge...

My original manuscript was very historical in nature, putting Trump in the context of other candidates across our history. Along the way, however, I became a participant, partly because I knew Trump's campaign manager and partly because many of you here were active in doing research into state party registrations, then later, absentee voting, and so...

She’s admitted as much. There is no evidence of any systemic wrongdoing or errors in either the voting machines or the tabulation. Even proponents of the recount admit it won’t overturn any results. Yet, they press on with an expensive effort built upon nothing more than pretense, innuendo, and rumor. Now, it seems Michigan’s Attorney General has had enough. He’s filed a lawsuit to halt...

The suit asks the Michigan Court of Appeals to order the Michigan Board of Canvassers to reject the request and says that the Michigan statute authorizing recounts requires the petitioning candidate to demonstrate that she was “aggrieved” by fraud or mistake. “Michigan voters rejected Stein’s candidacy by massive margins but her refusal to accept that state-verified result poses an expensive...

    Why did Hillary Clinton join Jill Stein, the Green Party’s oddball presidential nominee, in asking for a recount of the votes in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania when everyone knows that such a recount won’t change the outcome of the 2016 election? Part of the answer is that people close to Hillary—Huma Abedin, Chelsea Clinton, and Sidney Blumenthal—encouraged her to ask for a recount as a way of lifting her spirits. “She is weepy, looks ten years older and is very whiny,” said one of Hillary’s closest friends. “She has been drinking wine pretty heavily, much more than usual.

It says the Clinton campaign also emailed supporters looking for volunteers to help the recount, something Stein’s campaign didn’t do.
