    Many people I know enjoy watching movies multiple times: from Gone With The Wind and Jurassic Park to Field of Dreams or La La Land, if it comes on TV they’ll watch it. A harmless vice…time-wasting but no lasting damage, However, across America—and around the globe—we are all facing the prospect of a rerun we don’t want to experience: yet another stupid, protracted, over-lawyered “election recount” drama in the state of Florida. Unlike watching Batman Forever a few too many times, this rerun will “Make America UNgreat Again” by turning Florida and the USA into an international joke. Three statewide...

    <p>Now, county election officials will feed ballots into machines to recount the results in those races. The second round of results is due to the state by 3 p.m. Thursday.</p> <p>If the results show a margin of 0.25 percent or less, as in the case of the most heated race of the three, between U.S. Sen.

    The state of Florida, and therefore the nation, is forced to wait for the verdict of three statewide races thanks to the negligence of Palm Beach and Broward County election officials Susan Bucher and Brenda Snipes. Each county submitted their unofficial election results on Saturday after days of confusion, misplaced ballots, and questionable counting methods but the statewide process will continue due to the close margin of error in Florida's Governor, Senate, and Florida Agriculture Commissioner races.Now, Florida's Secretary of State has officially ordered a statewide recount.

    Three statewide races in Florida are heading for recounts after a key deadline for county election officials to submit unofficial vote tallies came and went Saturday. The first round of machine recounts, which must be completed by Thursday, sets up a bitter fight to the finish in Florida’s races for Senate, governor and agriculture commissioner. The most closely watched recount is the Senate race between incumbent Sen. Bill Nelson (D-Fla.) and Florida’s Republican Gov. Rick Scott, who currently carries a narrow lead of roughly 12,500 votes — about 0.15 points. In Florida, an automatic machine recount is triggered if two...

    According to FairVote there have been 27 contested state elections (recounts) since 2000 and regardless of who had the lead going in Democrats have won…all 27. C’est un miracle! It would seem that nobody can beat the serial Democrat vote rigging machine; and if you don’t believe me, just ask Bernie Sanders. Even Senator Fauxcahontas concedes he got screwed: CNN asked Senator Elizabeth Warren if Mrs Clinton's contest against Democratic rival Bernie Sanders was rigged, and she said: "Yes”… Ms Warren, a progressive senator from Massachusetts who campaigned for Mrs Clinton, was reacting to allegations by former Democratic National Committee...

    Dozens of boxes filled with mail-in ballots are sitting inside a Miami-area mail distribution center, according to photos obtained by The Miami New Times. The news outlet noted that the distribution center where the ballots are located is the same one that was evacuated in October after a mail bomb reached the facility. The news about the ballots comes the same day Miami-Dade County announced it finished counting votes for the midterm elections, which includes hotly-contested Senate and gubernatorial races that have yet to be called. Two unnamed sources alleged to The New Times that hundreds or thousands of ballots...

    Lawyers for the candidates in Florida's close Senate race faced off in court  Friday afternoon as the race appeared headed to a recount, along with the race for governor.Gov. Rick Scott, the Republican candidate for Senate, is alleging that elections officials in South Florida are trying to "steal" the election for Democrats, while President Donald Trump said officials were "finding votes out of nowhere." Both claims were made without evidence.Scott's campaign filed a lawsuit demanding that Broward Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes turn over several records detailing the counting and collection of ballots cast for each day of the past week.A...

    Bottom Line in Florida: Broward County Election Officials Have Been Violating the Law By now, you know that Republicans are raising the alarm over what's happening in Florida, as the margins apparent election night GOP victories -- punctuated by Democratic concessions -- are being whittled down in a heavily blue county. As expected, Democrats are falsely accusing the GOP of wanting to stop the process of counting votes. Republicans counter by raising a top Broward County election official's known history of malfeasance and incompetence, aggressively accusing the opposition party of try to steal an election, noting that the county has...

Yes, it’s beautiful, yes, it silently covers everything in its path – including the 4 inches of fallen leaves waiting to be raked and removed. And while I know some of you (MnTo) are delighted with this early gift of whiteness (trigger! privileged! racist! trigger!trigger! ) the rest of us are neither mentally or physically prepared for this early onslaught. So while I would have been happy to just post this lovely photo of the Trumps and...

    Daniel, the Jeremiah of political commentary, dives deep with his guest on this episode. Seriously the most eye-opening education of how screwed Constitution-loving patriots really are dejure. It's rigged, in a legal sense, by the Democrats. We are out of our league posting on Twitter or FR or even the NY Post which is carrying the video of the Broward polling place with civilians leaving bags of ballots on the pavement unattended. The Dems are ahead of us at every step. We Are Doomed. But before the society burns, give a listen.

    The races for Senate and governor in Florida tightened even further on Thursday, raising the prospect that two of the highest profile contests in the country could be headed to a recount. The tumult also underscored how intensely divided the country’s largest and most volatile battleground state remains along political and demographic lines 18 years after handing George W. Bush the presidency following one of the most controversial recounts in U.S. history. As of Thursday afternoon, just 17,344 votes – a difference of 0.22 percentage points – separated Sen. Bill Nelson (D) and his Republican challenger, Florida Gov. Rick Scott,...

    Full title: FL SEN: Something Very Odd (And In Violation Of State Law) Is Going On In These Two Democratic Counties Something odd is occurring in Florida’s Senate race. Republican Gov. Rick Scott has declared victory over incumbent Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson. At the time, Scott led Nelson by a little over 34,500 votes. It’s now been cut to around 18,000. We’re heading into recountterritory, as Scott’s lead has swindled to 0.2 percent; less than half of one percent triggers an automatic recount. Yet, in two Democratic bastions—Palm Beach and Broward counties—they’re taking their sweet time counting the votes and...

    Gov. Rick Scott declared victory Tuesday with a slim 0.68 percentage point win over U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, who conceded even though his campaign raised issues with ballot counting in several South Florida counties. Nelson advisor Dan McLaughlin told supporters at Nelson’s election night event at the Embassy Suites in Orlando that the campaign had concerns about ballot counting in several south Florida counties. But just after midnight, the Nelson campaign said he would concede. “This is obviously not the result Senator Nelson's campaign has worked hard for,” said Pete Mitchell, Nelson’s campaign manager. “The senator will be making a...

    A fire ripped through Iraq's biggest ballot warehouse on Sunday ahead of a vote recount prompted by allegations of fraud during legislative elections that saw a surprise victory for a populist cleric. A senior security official, speaking to AFP on condition of anonymity, said the fire broke out in a warehouse located in Al-Russafa, one of the largest voting districts in eastern Baghdad. Firefighters brought the blaze under control several hours after it started, and the extent of the damage caused to ballot boxes was still unclear. Around 60 percent of Baghdad's two million eligible voters had cast their ballots...
  • Did Liberals Got Conned? How Is Jill Stein Spending The Money She Raised For Bogus 2016 Recounts?

    Remember Jill Stein’s shoddy 2016 recounts? Remember how she raised more for this nonsense effort than for her entire 2016 campaign? She raised over $7 million for this effort, and she seems to be spending it on her staff. Not in a lavish sense, but they told Daily Beast it’s because they’re continuing the recount initiative. A bit odd since Stein promised that there would be a vote on how the rest of the fund raised would be distributed. So far, that has not happened.As liberals licked their wounds, with some still recovering from the shock of Trump’s win, Stein...

    Republicans are citing numerous problems at polling sites in Tuesday's special election in Pennsylvania, which remains too close to officially call but appears to be trending toward an extremely narrow victory for Democrat Conor Lamb. [Snip] Among the listed concerns are "miscalibrated" voting machines in Allegheny County, the only county of four in the district that went for Lamb, according to the source, who said there have been many reports of voters who intended to vote for Saccone ending up casting a ballot for Lamb. Furthermore, Republicans say their attorneys were ejected from polling sites as the absentee ballots were...

    PITTSBURGH — Republicans will not be conceding anytime soon in a tightly contested special election in Pennsylvania, where Democrat Conor Lamb holds a slim lead over Republican state Rep. Rick Saccone in Tuesday's election. Lamb's campaign and Democratic groups have declared him the winner, as he sits with less than a 700-vote lead. NBC News also projected him the "apparent winner" early Wednesday morning as more absentee ballots trickled in. There are still about 203 absentee ballots and then additional provisional and military ballots left to be counted, but Saccone would have to capture an overwhelming majority of those outstanding...

    It could come down to a recount. Democrat Conor Lamb has already declared victory over Republican Rick Saccone in Pennsylvania’s special House election, but Republicans say they aren’t giving up until every vote is counted. The contest has still not been called, but Lamb leads Saccone by a few hundred votes. There’s no mandatory recount for a federal race in Pennsylvania, but Republicans have the option of petitioning for one. "This race is too close to call and we’re ready to ensure that every legal vote is counted,” National Republican Congressional Committee spokesman Matt Gorman said late Tuesday. “Once they...
