Well, This is Interesting...

     The Clinton campaign, after looking at this growing recount controversy with sublime calm, is now dipping a toe into it. After Jill Stein raised $5.7 million for the legal and recount fees (which are expected to total $6-7 million), they're finally getting involved. Some people might question, if the ruins of the Clinton campaign want to get involved in the recount process, why not chip in some cash and put their money where their mealy mouths are?
     My answer? They already had. Where else do you think that $5.7 m came from? It sure as hell wasn't cash-strapped hippie dippy granola-eating Green voters. That money came from well-financed Clinton backers (most likely starting with puppet master Soros through a proxy or two) who are fighting a proxy war of their own using Jill Stein and her campaign as their infantry, their useful idiots. It's a win-win situation for the Clintonistas:
     If the recount yields fruit that puts their Goldwater Girl in the WH, great! If it doesn't, their lack of proximity will give them enough plausible deniability to blame the entire debacle on Stein if and when it blows up in her face like a prank cigar.
     My prediction: Trump's still sleazing his way into the White House and this recount will be a waste of $7 million. After all, the various county elections officials are probably the ones that hacked the electronic voting machines in the counties in which Clinton did the most poorly (she fared much better in WI counties in which paper ballots were used, one of the Stein campaign's biggest bones of contention).
     I won't trust the recount results in the famously fascist Michigan or even Pennsylvania. Republicans are even now ensuring their people are firmly embedded in the recount process and the results won't change much if at all. After all, if the ballot results shift noticeably but still give the presidency to Trump, all the recount will do is inspire more distrust in the electoral process. And considering Trump's slim margins of "victory" in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania, they don't have a lot of wiggle room, to begin with. If Trump walks away with 2% fewer votes in the first two and 3% fewer in PA, it'll hand the presidency to Hillary Clinton.
    And the Obama administration is helping Camp Clinton about as much as it's assisting the water protectors in North Dakota, which is to say not at all. In fact, the Go Along to Get Along At All Costs Obama administration actually said in a press release,
     "Nevertheless, we stand behind our election results, which accurately reflect the will of the American people."
     Right. If that were true, we'd be going by the popular vote that Clinton won instead of an outdated and irrelevant Electoral College that's a relic of the 18th century.

If the same officials who are suspected of doctoring the vote count are going to conduct the recount, then it's a waste of money.

But how many voters saw their names wiped off the voter lists before the election?

It's hard to sympathize with the Clinton camp because of how it treated Sanders during the primaries and seemed to benefit from most or all of the voter irregularities that happened then.

Now some academics are calling for a recount of the primary votes even as Camp Clinton is timidly getting into the general election recount.

I am sure that there is no more inept and clumsy way of getting into this recount than the way the Democrats are doing it. Why am I sure? Because the Democrats would be more inept and clumsy if it were at all possible.

Sure. Look at 2000 and 2004.

Not that it makes much difference, but I understand that the deadline for requesting a recount has already passed in PA (according to the Secretary of State of PA). That might make it a bit more difficult to actually GET a recount in PA.

I think this is probably a huge waste of time. Whatever dark forces at work that cost us these three states will still be in play during any recount.

Gentlemen, you are all correct. To paraphrase Tiny Tim, "God help us, every one."

Martin Longman over at BooMan Tribune and Greg Palast have both been putting together a number of posts on this. BooMan surprised me - I haven't followed him closely for years ; I suppose if I actually watched my Twitter feed I might learn something - But he had a very graphic description of what voter registration games look like on the street ( voter ID ) And although I have had a disagreement over climate change with BradBlog ( I still think there is a big difference between testimonials and specifications ..... and from what you get with a culturally appropriate crystal ball ) he has been shining light on voter disenfranchisement and rigged Diebold voting machines for years.
Hillary ? That could be funny. Remember allegations of fraud in the California vote when Bernie was reported to have been finessed out ?
