For John, BLUF: This is just more Democratic Party manipulation to discredit Mr Trump. Nothing to see here; just move along.
That would be the Milwaukee Journal Sentinal and Reporters Jason Stein and Patrick Marley.
Can anyone explain to me what is going on with the recount?
I got it that the Democrats thought Mr Trump saying he wouldn't accept the results of the election until he looked it over was going to bring discredit to our election system. So, Mr Trump won and was happy.
Per the article in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinal, Green Party Candidate Dr Jill Stein said"
We must recount the votes so we can build trust in our election system.OK, so if Mr Trump asks questions it brings discredit to our election system, but if Dr Jill Stein does it it is to build trust in our election system. I guess Mrs Clinton piling on in support of Dr Stein is just to provide more trust in our system.
Dr Stein has been challenging election counts in three states, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Michigan. She got shot down in Pennsylvania, for filing too late. In Wisconsin it isn't going the way she wanted, so she is suing in Dane County.♠
Meanwhile, Reporter Dan Riehl, writing in Brietbart, gives us an ear full from Pollster Pat Caddell:
"What Donald Trump must understand,” said Caddell, “is that this war didn’t end on Election Day. This war will be fought every day."I think I am with Democratic Party Position One. This unwillingness to accept the results is bringing discredit upon our process.
What he has done is now positioned himself to take power away from a group of people in the political elite of both parties and in the unelected media. They will fight back every inch of the way,” he added.
As for the recount process itself, Caddell said, “this thing smells to high heaven. This is a process that’s going nowhere. There’s not enough votes.”
As for those who claim they now live in fear, I recommend they go to their local gun store and stock up. Remember the text message that went out at Ohio University—"Run, Hide, Fight". If you are concerned about your freedom, be prepared.
As Ms Liz Sheld says (After Trump Victory, Minorities Flock to Gun Stores):
