Michigan Halts Vote Recount Squashing Hopes Of Clinton Supporters, Trump is 45th President

A federal judge ruled late Wednesday night that the Michigan recount should immediately be halted. The judge noted that the recount was a waste of taxpayer money as there was no proof of fraud or mistakes presented by Jill Stein or the Green Party. US District Judge Mark Goldsmith noted that a “recount as an audit” of an election with no proof of fraud has never been endorsed by any court and that Michigan will be no exception. However, Recount 2016 leader Jill Stein says the ruling was “disheartening.”

CNN reports that a federal judge squashed all hopes of a Clinton presidency once and for all on Wednesday evening. Judge Mark Goldsmith ruled to uphold longstanding recount laws by denying Jill Stein a recount as a form of election audit. While Jill Stein is a Green Party advocate and leader, many Hillary Clinton supporters jumped on the Recount 2016 train on the hopes that Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania election results could be overturned, resulting in a Clinton presidency.

However, those dreams were crushed when the judge upheld the ruling that recounts should not be used to audit elections but rather are only used when state recount margins are met or when there is proof of voter fraud. Without proof that fraud took place, Judge Goldsmith said the courts could not uphold the recount and ordered all recount efforts to be halted.

“A recount as an audit of the election has never been endorsed by any court.”

During the Bush vs. Gore election, when the hanging chad became household talk, Florida courts adopted a highly unusual exception to the audit rule, something Michigan was not prepared to do given that they do not use punch systems and the election had already been audited and deemed too large of a margin for a mandatory recount. This ruling has not stopped Jill Stein from criticizing the election results.

According to USA Today, a Stein campaign spokesman David Cobb has called the ruling a “national disgrace.”

“What we’re seeing is a national disgrace. We see that in Detroit, half of the votes were ineligible to recount because of antiquated state laws. Just as we were gearing up to discover something wrong going on, the court stopped us.”

Cobb notes that no voter fraud was uncovered in the recount process but says they campaign was “gearing up to discover something.” Stein herself took to Twitter to express her disappointment with the halting of the recount noting that while federal courts have stopped the process, the issue is still open in the “court of public opinion.”

Though Stein says her recount efforts were not an attempt to get Clinton elected, many Hillary Clinton supporters were hoping to piggy back off the efforts in a bid to see their candidate make her way to the White House. With Michigan’s ruling now made, there is no viable path for Clinton to secure the presidency. Even if Pennsylvania and Wisconsin both flipped to Clinton, she would still not have the 270 needed to secure the election.

Similarly, ABC News has noted that things do not appear to be changing in Wisconsin, where the recount is over 70 percent complete. Clinton has picked up just 82 votes in a state that Trump won by more than 22,000.

What do you think about the judge’s ruling that Michigan will not continue with the recount?

I’m sure Jill is disappointed. After all, she’s going to have to pay the tab for the recount instead of keeping the $7M+ she’s raised, for an ‘honest elections’ foundation I bet she’d planned on establishing to stay relevant.

Yep. It was to their advantage to halt it. All it was doing was uncovering more voter fraud in Democrat precincts.There was a reason that Hillary so graciously conceded in the early morning hours of November 9. And it wasn’t because she was gracious . . . by a long shot.

The PA recount hearing is tomorrow (I think the judge delayed it so Stein does have little time to appeal after being this being turned down too), not sure about the Florida lawsuit and of course this Russia hack stuff that they are now making up to discredit Trump.

Remember at first the Obama administration said there was no credible evidence of the Russians hacking voting machines and if the Russians had been hacking their way into helping Trump Obama would have said so much earlier.

He is playing games and once Trump takes office he should appoint some one to look deep into the politization of the FBI, CIA, IRS and all other agencies the Dems used to suppress the people who do not think like they do (Rudy!)!

Let’s do a recount in ILL-ANNOY, except it needs to include an audit of voter registration records. The dead voters, the undocumented foreign voters, and the unregistered voters – if eliminated from the Crook County count – may have been the difference. ILL-ANNOY might have gone RED.

There is zero proof the russians did anything.

For people saying they are the experts at intl diplomacy, accusing another fairly powerful country of altering your election results is a serious insult without irrefutable evidence.

This is doing several things as all their schemes do. Obama getting back at putin for syria. Deflecting off crimimal charges for hillary and huma and obama. Deflecting off murder of whistleblower and actual leaker, Seth Rich. Deflecting off the truth contained in the dnc and hillary emails. Shifting off the massive security breaches of hillary and huma. Giving hillary cover she didnt lose election, it was stolen.

All of it total bs.

I know you’re in New York, but can’t you buy a firearm and practice at a local range?

Even if you have to jump through a few hoops, it is your right, and somewhat of a civic duty. Besides, it’s all kinds of fun.

Me and brother looked into just in case hitlery got elected.

The paperwork and required documentation was STAGGERING.

But I will start the process even though I gave up when I saw the demands.

That’s old. You need four and it’s five years now.

Dayum….

That’s a clear infringement of your 2nd Amendment rights. New Yorkers need to start pounding on their state legislators about this.

Bad gun laws have been overturned in many states, but it takes constant pressure to do so.

Dig in for the long haul. Your kids and grandkids will thank you for it.

All of the progress in gun rights (and there’s been a lot) over the last quarter century, has been made at the state level. About the only help we’ve gotten from the feds, is when Congress has resisted new anti-gun legislation from the Dems.

The Judicial branch delivered on Heller vs DC, but the Executive branch hasn’t done squat to help us. Maybe that’ll change, now that we have a president who’s a gun rights advocate.

At the end of the day, though, the state legislatures are where all the action is. Mash on those critters in Albany.
