    At first, I couldnít understand how anyone could be undecided. The distinction between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton was so clear to me, the gap so wide. Much to my surprise, it was easy to find the Undecideds: people who had significant enough reservations about both candidates that they were searching for a sign, looking for more information, or just waiting it out until November. ++SNIP++ There was one moment when I saw more undecided voters shift to Trump than any other, when it all changed, when voters began to speak differently about their choice. It wasnít FBI Director James...

    The courts could legally ďinstallĒ Hillary Clinton as president instead of Donald Trump, because of Russiaís alleged interference in the election, The Huffington Post asserted in a story Friday. Seizing on a breaking report that the CIA has concluded Russia worked covertly to help Trump win the election, Alex Mojaher writes in HuffPo the findings could be enough for a federal court to ďinvalidateĒ Trumpís win. ďRussian Interference Could Give Courts Legal Authority To Install Clinton,Ē the headline reads.

    Chester County on Thursday ordered a hand recount of 190,462 paper ballots cast in last month's election, as former Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein continues her bid for a statewide recount. The county's Board of Elections, which consists of the three county commissioners, ruled that the Department of Voter Services must recount the ballots in 143 of the 228 precincts for the presidential and U.S. Senate races. Many counties have adopted electronic voting systems, but Chester relies almost exclusively on paper ballots. Of nearly 275,000 ballots cast there last month, all but about 850 were on paper. The ruling...

    Hard to believe, but Hillary Clinton's campaign team thinks they lost because Donald Trump ignited America's inner bigot, which caused the KKK and Aryan Brotherhood members and sympathizers to show up in droves and vote Trump. Following Mitt Romney's 2012 defeat, Democrats and pundits predicted GOP defeats as far as the eye could see, because there aren't enough white voters for Republicans to win. But now the narrative is, "Trump won by appealing to white voters." Could they please pick one and stick to it? That's the takeaway from the Harvard quadrennial postmortem in which the two campaign camps...

I think President Barack Obama is the worst president of my lifetime: an incompetent ideologue who made the world and the country worse. The economy is not as bad as it was directly after the crash, but it is much,...

    Although Donald Trump has signaled that he doesn't intend to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate Hillary Clinton, knowledgeable sources tell me that Hillary is far from out of the legal woods.And, these sources add, itís Hillaryís own fault that sheís still in trouble.Trump tried to be magnanimous toward his vanquished adversary. ďI donít want to hurt [the Clintons],Ē he said in an interview with Lesley Stahl of 60 Minutes. ďTheyíre good people. I donít want to hurt them.ĒBut Trump was irate when sore-loser Hillary joined forces with Green Party candidate Jill Stein and asked for a recount in Wisconsin,...

    Hillary Clinton's team had every reason to feel great about her Florida prospects by the time Election Day dawned on Nov. 8. New Florida election data shows that Clinton led Donald Trump by nearly 250,000 votes from people who voted by mail or in person prior to Election Day, according to an analysis by a leading Democratic consultant. Most political experts expected Trump would outperform Clinton with Election Day, but Clinton's early vote lead was about 66 percent bigger than President Barack Obama's in 2012, when he narrowly beat Mitt Romney in Florida. Yet Clinton's buffer proved inadequate in holding...

    Three voters in Florida filed a lawsuit in state court seeking a recount of the votes in Novemberís presidential election. The voters claim that Hillary Clinton really won Florida, but problems including hacking, faulty voting machines, and voters being turned away from the polls led to a Trump victory. They sued Governor Rick Scott, Donald Trump, State Attorney General Pamela Bondi, and 29 Republican presidential electors in the state. The lawsuit, filed by law firm Clint Curtis & Associates, demands a hand recount of every paper ballot in the state. In a press release, the firm said that in addition...

    On Day Five of the Wisconsin presidential election recount, as reported by Fox 6 News, a milestone has been reached. Over a million votes have now been recounted, and the recount effort is finished in six of the 72 Wisconsin counties. Donald Trump now has 20 fewer votes than he had at the close of the polls on November 8; Hillary Clinton also has exactly 20 fewer votes than she had at the close of the polls, so Trumpís margin of victory is literally unchanged. Gary Johnson (who came in third in the actual election) has gained 13 votes over...

    Tyler DurdenDecember 5, 2016Submitted by Jeremiah Johnson (nom de plume of a retired Green Beret of the Army Special Forces) Many things have been happening in this ďtransition periodĒ that point to one grim fact: Trump hasnít sworn into office as president yet. As a matter of fact, things are happening that may very well derail that inauguration. Thereís an old Irish expression: ďThereís many a slip Ďtwixt the cup and the lip,Ē and thereís quite a few slippery deeds in the works in particular that bear mentioning. January 20, 2017 is still a long way off, and Obama isnít...

    I reached peak Twitter this week when I was sucked into a tweet battle with a liberal dwarf. True story. Donald Trumpís victory had the militant munchkin fuming. I have to admit that I was a little short with her myself.But I should be smiling Ė we conservatives should all be smiling Ė because everything is going our way. For heavenís sake, our next Secretary of Defense is going to be nicknamed ďMad Dog.Ē We just spent eight years being ruled by people who would prefer it be someone nicknamed ďHugs Ní Stuff.ĒThe liberals are truly going nuts, and itís...

    Day 5 of the Wisconsin recount continued the pattern on previous days, as Donald Trump extended his Election Day lead over Hillary Clinton by a couple dozen votes.Trump leads Wisconsin by about 22,000 votes. So far, data from the Wisconsin recount as of December 5 shows that little is changing. The major candidates have each gained a smattering of votes in municipalities around the state as a variety of errors are found, but nothing has changed in significant enough numbers to upend the election. Not even close. Trump and Clinton have also each lost votes in communities throughout the state,...
