Clinton Campaign Joins Recount….Trump Calls it a “Scam.” Original Article by: Eugene Scott (CNN)

 Washington (CNN)Hillary Clinton’s campaign said Saturday it will take part in efforts to push for recounts in several key states, joining with Green Party candidate Jill Stein, who has raised millions of dollars to have votes counted again in Wisconsin.

But, in a post on Medium, Marc Elias, the campaign’s counsel, said the campaign’s own investigation has not uncovered any evidence of hacking of voting systems.
In the campaign’s most detailed comments to date on the recount, Elias wrote that while the campaign was not going to contest the results itself, it has decided now to take part in the effort to “ensure that it is fair to all sides.”
But President-elect Donald Trump on Saturday dismissed the recount and said that “the election is over.”
“The people have spoken and the election is over, and as Hillary Clinton herself said on election night, in addition to her conceding by congratulating me, ‘We must accept this result and look to the future,'” Trump said in a statement, which called the recount “ridiculous” in a headline.
The President-elect blasted the Green Party’s effort as a “scam” and accused the party’s nominee, Jill Stein, of trying to reel in donations that she won’t actually spend on a recount.
“This recount is just a way for Jill Stein, who received less than one percent of the vote overall and wasn’t even on the ballot in many states, to fill her coffers with money, most of which she will never even spend on this ridiculous recount,” Trump said. “This is a scam by the Green Party for an election that has already been conceded, and the results of this election should be respected instead of being challenged and abused, which is exactly what Jill Stein is doing.”
Stein dismissed Trump’s suggestion that the funds wouldn’t be spent on the recount.
“For his information, this is all going into a dedicated and segregated account so that it can only be spent on the recount,” she told CNN’s Pamela Brown on “Newsroom.”
“He may be creating his own facts here as he’s been known to do some times in the past,” Stein added. “He himself said it was rigged election unless he won it.”Green Party officials filed Friday for a recount in Wisconsin after reports of voting discrepancies.
Wisconsin Green Party co-chairman George Martin said that the party was seeking a “reconciliation of paper records” — a request that would go one step further than a simple recount, which is expected to begin next week, and that he hopes will spur an investigation into the integrity of the state’s voting system.
“This is a process, a first step to examine whether our electoral democracy is working,” Martin said.
Stein tweeted Saturday that she’s willing to expand the recount to other states.”I will do a recount in any state where the deadline has not passed. Help my staff find state deadlines … #Recount2016,” she said.

The Blue Wall Has Fallen….

Well, after this election cycle has finished and yes, there is a possible recount if it is already not underway in the battleground states to ensure that Hillary Clinton who’s popular vote lead has widened quite a bit. But, from everything that I have read the third party woman on the ticket Jill Stein is the one who has raised the money to have the ballots counted in the battleground states and I have heard not a word from the Clinton Campaign. Although, data experts have urged the campaign to ask for a recount. To this day I have not heard of one from the Clinton Campaign. So, after it is all said and done we more than likely will have to finally accept Donald Trump as being our next President of the United States. With that being said, the Electoral College could switch their vote and if your speaking constitutionally we have not actually elected our President. (Thank You Alexander Hamilton) We are not a direct Democracy. But, this was put in place to protect the office of the president from anyone who is unfit to hold the office. I do not know what will happen. Either way someone is going to get pissed again. But, Democrats now lets talk this out. First, yes we had a strong candidate. Yes, we made history! But, we were also out of touch with the American people and as Hillary herself said, We did not know how truly divided our country is. Democrats, it is time that we throw away the tissues and finally toughen our stance on a few issues. For example, a mother who is not working a full time job and has no intention of working ever in her life and is single. She can afford a new car because she gets 7,000.00 back on her Tax Return because she has 4 kids. Now, tell me how in the hell does it make sense for a person who has never paid into the system to get any money in the form of a tax return given to them because they have children. I know Children are a full time job. But, my mom was a full time public school teacher and my father owned his own business and they both slaved at least 60 hours a week so that I could grow up into a family that adopted me and accepted me. Now, before you think I am some white person from Texas. I happen to be an adopted Hispanic and a member of the LGBT community (50 percent Aztec 49 percent Spanish and 1 percent Italian) (I did the DNA Test you see advertised on television.) Anyway, so before you get all jumpy I know how it feels to be the odd man in the group. But, seriously Democrats. We will never fix the national deficit if we keep giving money away in the form of a tax return to mothers who do not work , but just have children. That is a no-brainer. Also, if you are on welfare and I do not qualify I make too much money. But, if you are then you should be drug tested and you should also not just be able to sit on your ass and do nothing while the rest of us slave away trying to pay all of our bills. If your working and trying and meeting us half way that I do not mind helping. But, if your just converting oxygen to carbon dioxide in your living room while smoking your meth pipe. Well, I have got news for you. You should be drug tested if you are on any kind of government aid and this aid should not be able to be used to buy Cigarettes, Alcohol or any illicit substances. You should be able to buy the necessities like bread, cheese etc. Democrats, we are out of touch. You want to include everyone in the party , but your are leaving out half of the country that works by giving so much away. We are dead broke as a country. Yes, I think that Hillary Clinton would have made some differences. I still believe in her. But, we as a party need to reorganize at the State Level. We need to examine each elected official in the state party and see if they are willing to make the changes necessary to reach out to Republicans and take the initiative to listen to their points of view as well and find middle ground. Yes, it can be done I worked as a Field Director for a Republican Campaign as my Candidate ran for the House of Representatives against a long time sitting Rep… No names will be mentioned , but when we forced the other two on the ballot into a runoff I sat down with the sitting Rep. we have had our differences , but like two mature adults we managed to see eye to eye and work for the greater good for at the end of the day that is what we both wanted anyway. We were both fighting for a better Texas and I have the upmost respect for him. He did lose his election , but went on to win a Statewide Elected Position and is now in Austin doing a great job. We need to be able to talk to the other side without yelling, shouting, screaming, throwing a fit, threatening to kill another person etc. But, Democrats this is our moment. This is our wakeup call to take a closer look at our platforms and beliefs and I am not suggesting leaving anyone behind or keep anyone out of the party. We must find common ground and unite our country. To those of you who protested. Shame on you for carrying a Clinton/Kaine sign for it was not a sign that was created to re-enact the French Revolution or Bloody Sunday in Russia. It was a sign that was created for people like me who saw not only the chance to make history. But, a chance to possibly have a candidate in office that I felt was for me and would fight for me. But, we again missed the mark because we are not practical in a lot of our beliefs and we try and please everyone and Democrats you can not do that. We need to reform our beliefs on a lot of the things that we say are core Democratic values. We do not need to give these beliefs up. We just need to modernize them where more people can relate. Because I can tell you that Joe Brown who works 60 hours a week at a factory is not going to vote for a person that believes in giving away money to another person who is not contributing to society. I do not care if they pick flowers on the side of the road or pick up trash as long as a person is contributing positively to our American Society. Then, I would see it more rational to give them a handout or help them , but they need to work. There are a lot of other issues that we need to modernize , but the bottom line of this entire rant is that we need to look at the State Level of our Party and weed out those who have been in office too long or are holding on to ideas that are not modern. Some of these people are afraid of losing their power. Well, to those people. You say your a leader of our party , yet we just lost the White House. I say we pull a Donald Trump and say, “Your Fired”. So, now is the time to reform, rethink and refocus because we can do this. We will recover. But, it is time to clean house and we need to start at the state level and work our way up!!! Remember, Hillary never gave up on us. We do not need to give up on our party, passions or beliefs. But, we do need to bring them up to date. Now, let’s get to work because it is going to be an uphill battle!!!
