The Green Party presidential nominee Jill Stein officially handed in a petition Friday asking election officials in the battleground state of Wisconsin to perform a recount of its general election results, the state confirmed. She is trying to stop Trump before the Electoral College votes. Clinton has not joined her because there was not enough claims of voter fraud in those states so the Democrats are keeping their distance letting Stein carry the ball.

Yet Stein has raised nearly $5 million, but has cleverly made it clear there are no guarantees and she will keep the money. Her website says:

We cannot guarantee a recount will happen in any of these states we are targeting. We can only pledge we will demand recounts in those states.

If we raise more than what’s needed, the surplus will also go toward election integrity efforts and to promote voting system reform.

Stein seems to be tapping into the division in the US created by the elections. She is using this to raise money for the Greens while pretending this is about integrity.

She has raised more than is necessary already, and if the state declines to do a recount, she keeps the whole pot. So this is a win-win for her anyway we slice it. The likelihood of this changing the outcome is not very high. If it did, this would unleash real civil unrest on a magnitude never seen in the USA. To exploit the division in the country like Stein is doing is highly disruptive and very dangerous for the nation.

This shows that the left is not interested in debate, this is all about oppression. They are only interested in subjugating anyone who disagrees with them. This is laying the seeds for the break-up of the United States by 2036.

    Actually, Martin, I think this may prove a good thing however it comes out. If there is a recount, the confirmation of the results will end the incessant whining. If the recount does not come about and she keeps the money, she will have jumped the shark to score an own-goal. You likely recall the ancient military wisdom that one should avoid interfering with an enemy engaged in making a serious error.
