    Heavy ^ | 12/05/2016 | By Jessica McBride
    Wisconsin recount returns for day 4 show that Donald Trump has continued to inch ahead of Hillary Clinton, gaining just over three dozen more net votes.The Election Commission does not add up recount returns when they come in, but, rather, places the raw numbers on a spreadsheet that includes each reporting municipality. Heavy has tallied the returns by county from the Election Commission’s day 4 spreadsheet (it also includes returns from days 1, 2, and 3.) The December 4 spreadsheet is updated with more new returns each day. Details on gained and lost vote counts per county are listed later...
  • First Day Of Wisconsin Recount Nets One Vote Change Between Trump And Clinton

    Western Journalism ^ | December 2, 2016 | Randy DeSoto
    The conclusion of the first day of Wisconsin’s recount in the presidential race has netted Hillary Clinton one vote. Currently, approximately 22,000 votes separate Clinton and winner Donald Trump. Trump garnered 1,404,000 (47.2 percent) votes to Clinton’s 1,381,823 (46.4 percent), while Green Party candidate Jill Stein, who called for the recount (now backed by Clinton’s campaign), took 1 percent of the vote or 31,006. Based on the first day of the recount’s results, it does not appear the candidates’ overall tallies will change much. Menominee County, home to the Menominee Indian Reservation, was the only one of Wisconsin’s 72 counties...

    Heavy.com ^ | 12-2-16 | Jessica McBride
    Wisconsin recount totals for day 2 show that Donald Trump has inched ahead by a couple additional votes. Three to be exact. The Wisconsin Election Commission posts recount data on a spreadsheet every day. The latest spreadsheet totals as of 1:30 p.m. CST on December 3 show that the recount isn’t changing much, although a smattering of errors have been found throughout the state. The candidates each lost and gained a smattering of votes in towns, cities, and villages that are reporting, so any losses were basically cancelled out. The Election Commission doesn’t tally the returns, but, rather, just posts...

    Earmarks again are a topic in Congress, and people in this part of Pennsylvania shouldn’t condemn them. Back in the 1970s, when highway construction was booming around the biggest population centers of the Keystone State, places like Altoona, Johnstown, Ebensburg and Bedford were told that once those projects were completed, work would begin on their roadway needs.But as the large-scale projects around Philadelphia, Harrisburg, Pittsburgh and Erie were completed, the promises that had been made to Blair County and other smaller-population areas, didn’t materialize because of alleged money shortages.The message seemed to be: “We’ll get to you sometime, but for...

    The first day of Wisconsin’s presidential recount narrowed the gap between former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and President-elect Donald Trump by precisely one vote. Trump defeated Clinton in Wisconsin’s initial tally by about one percent, or just over 22,000 votes. Nevertheless, Green Party candidate Jill Stein (who finished a very distant fourth) is demanding a full recount after suggesting fraud or technological glitches may have swayed the results. In response to Stein’s demand, Wisconsin began recounting all its ballots Thursday. But the first results to emerge suggest the final tally will be rather close to the original one. Only...

    The Gateway Pundit ^ | 12/01/16 | Jim Hoft
    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. But they also knew if they stalled on the...

    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...

    The Wisconsin Elections Commission announced that it has received the required payment from Jill Stein to start the presidential recount in the state later this week. The former Green Party presidential candidate previously submitted a petition for a recount in Wisconsin, and she paid the required $3,499,689 set by the commission via bank wire transfer, according to the Wisconsin Elections Commission. The Wisconsin Elections Commission announced that amount as the required fee to start the recount process, but in its announcement today it noted that "there was an error in adding up figures" from the state's 72 county clerks, so...

    The College Fix ^ | 12-2-167 | Christian Montoya
    A Catholic college reported a crude Post-it note to city police as a hate crime because it told students to “suck it up” in response to Donald Trump’s election. First Amendment experts say that while Wisconsin’s Edgewood College can punish students for even constitutionally protected speech, it cannot seek to use police to punish such speech as a crime. And the police agreed. A spokesman for the Madison Police Department told The College Fix Thursday that a parole officer and detective already looked into the report and found “no immediate threat.” Hence, there’s no further case activity and “it’s not...

    Donald Trump and his backers have launched formal legal bids to stop recounts in, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Michigan that are being pushed for by failed Green Party candidate Jill Stein. Lawyers for Trump’s campaign have entered arguments in Pennsylvania and Michigan — calling Stein’s quest a “farce” — and in the latter, the state attorney general has filed to stop the recount effort he says “abuses the intent of Michigan law”. Trump’s supporters are taking legal action in Wisconsin where a third recount effort is underway. …

    The complaint contends that Stein only received 31,006 votes in Wisconsin — so Clinton is the only person who could benefit from a recount. The complaint also alleges Clinton appears to have illegally helped Stein raise nearly $7 million for the recounts in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Michigan — double the amount Stein raised for her own presidential campaign. It says the Clinton campaign also emailed supporters looking for volunteers to help the recount, something Stein’s campaign didn’t do.

Hillary Clinton conceded in the early morning hours on November 9th. But behind the scenes she was scheming with an army of operatives to find ways to steal the presidency from Trump. And now they are working with the Stein camp in the Wisconsin recount. Jill Stein has raised over $6 million so far in her effort to challenge...

    The recount in Wisconsin, and coming ones in Michigan and Pennsylvania will not change the outcomes in any of the states.  No recount ever changes thousands of votes.  I do not think that is the purpose. The recounts, if done by hand, which can be demanded, may take longer than the last day for completing official counts in a state and directing Electoral College voters.  If all 3 states miss the deadline, Trump is at 260, Hillary at 232.  No one hits 270.   Then this goes to Congress, where the House voting 1 vote per state elects Trump, and...

And, are safeguards in place after the announcements to prevent legal votes from being destroyed? ..... All above questions, regarding both paper ballots and electronic voting.

    A recount of the 2016 presidential election results in battleground Wisconsin will start next week, adding new drama to an already contentious election filled with surprise twists. The recount comes after a group of professors and lawyers raised concerns about the possibility of hacking. Donald Trump decried the recount as a “scam” in a statement on November 26. The Wisconsin Election Commission “is preparing to move forward with a statewide recount of votes for President of the United States,” Administrator Michael Haas announced in a written statement on November 25. The recount was requested by the Green Party after its...

    Jeremiah 7:9 Will ye steal, murder, and commit adultery, and swear falsely, and burn incense unto Baal, and walk after other gods whom ye know not So the Clintons are still trying to steal the election? Wonder how big a house Stein has agreed to, but this is obviously being coordinated by Crooked Hillary and more of her Rodham tricks. Trump has to take this as a serious challenge, and until he is sworn in every step is going to be a theft attempt so have some gold plated lawyers at every step. Plan B for Dems is to recount...

    Earlier today, a lawyer for Hillary Clinton’s campaign stated that they will join in on the recount efforts initiated by Green party presidential candidate Jill Stein in Wisconsin. While Marc Elias stated in his Medium post that the campaign “had not uncovered any actionable evidence of hacking,” they would take “the same approach” if Stein follows through on her promises of recounts in Pennsylvania and Michigan, along with participating in the one already scheduled in Wisconsin. Until now, President-elect Donald Trump and his team have remained quiet about Stein’s recount efforts. However, now that the Clinton camp is jumping into...
