Thank you Jill Stein

The NY Post just ran an article, Michigan recount reveals error, but not the one Jill Stein wanted.

The relevant excerpts:

WASHINGTON — Green Party nominee Jill Stein’s presidential vote recount in Michigan may have turned up massive voter irregularities — in the Democratic stronghold of Detroit.

Now it’s Republican leaders who are demanding an investigation to determine why a third of the city’s voting machines registered more ballots than actual voters, the Detroit News reported.

Ruth Johnson, the Republican secretary of state, is launching an audit.

Republican state Sen. Patrick Colbeck called the probe a good start on the suspicious results turned up in Detroit, which Hillary Clinton won with 95 percent of the vote.

The Detroit News found voting scanning machines at 248 of the city’s 662 precincts — 37 percent — tabulated more ballots than the number of actual voters counted in the poll books.

“There’s always going to be small problems to some degree, but we didn’t expect the degree of problem we saw in Detroit. This isn’t normal,” Krista Haroutunian, chairwoman of the Wayne County Board of Canvassers, told the paper.

The small tip of a large iceberg.

Didn't we hear, every step of the way, how "Trump has no ground game"?
Even back in the primaries, the narrative was about how the wily TED CRUZ UNITS were stealing Colorado's delegates with their ground game (for example, and we could multiply examples, but no need, WE ARE ALL ALERT).
Hillary's get-out-the-vote efforts were supposed to be superior. Get-out-the-vote and voter fraud have a certain natural overlap at the margins. Trump being a new politician JUST LOGICALLY ought to have fewer entrenched corrupt dirty friends able to manipulate their local electoral systems for him, just like if you are new in town fewer of the dope dealers in a bar are going to serve you, compared to A KNOWN PERSON.
I bet extra recounts almost everywhere will or would reveal MUCH MORE HILLARY FRAUD than the reverse. Everybody knows this, too, in the media, don't you agree?

Fake Baba --
Perfectly put: "Get-out-the-vote and voter fraud have a certain natural overlap at the margins."

And you're exactly right: Trump did NOT have a big, slick, corrupt machine working for him the way Clinton did. And you're right, it's always seemed that "get out the vote" operations were often "get out the vote two or three times apiece" and "vote for them" operations as much as they were a matter of just getting legally registered voters to vote once. All of the corruption exposed by Project Veritas was quite real, despite the Democratic protestations that "Oh, he edited his tapes!" and "He's been discredited!" The registrars and voting officials on those tapes said what they said, and what they said was undeniable evidence of fraud.

In the 2012 election, all of those inner city wards in Philadelphia reported 99% turnout and 100% of the vote for Obama. Presidential elections historically get something like 65% turnout, and it's always been lower in the inner city (no one ever has "get out the vote" buses and cash ready in the suburbs). So, 99% turnout is a statistical improbability, and, realistically speaking, an impossibility. But nobody said anything because to do so would have been "racist." And there were all sorts of other anomalies in the 2012 election, especially in the swing states of FL, MI, OH, and PA, which the media didn't want to report.

It amazes me how many devious, underhanded people there are out there. HRC is steeped in deviousness.

A few post election thoughts:

- we have the 'big' story, that there is a HUGE problem with conspiracy theorists and fake news on the internet; and that this probably tipped the election for Trump

- we have the virtuous Jill Stein, who is just looking out for election integrity for the people, but somehow decided to request recounts in only the states that Hillary narrowly lost, but none of the states Hillary narrowly won

- we have another BIG story that Russia actively intervened in the election, in Trump's favor (the evidence is thin to non-existent, but no matter)

- we have the campaign to get Trump electors to flip their vote in the electoral college; after all Trump is unfit to be president, and is only president elect due to the influence of fake news, conspiracy theorists gaining traction with stupid people on the web, and the all-powerful Russian interference.

- we have the hate-mail campaign against Trump electors (including death threats); typical article here. [why am I hearing nothing about the investigations, charges, and prosecutions for criminal threatening?]

- we have the fact that Hillary won the popular vote (newsflash: if the election were to be decided by popular vote, each candidate would have campaigned differently; Trump campaigned to win the electoral college).

What is it all about? (assuming Obama doesn't declare the election invalid, and the electors do their job.... )

Its about undermining and delegitimizing Trump's presidency.

As the Left goes about obstructing Trump's every move, they will have cover in the fake news story that Trump doesn't deserve to be president.
