Franken-Jill-Stein and the Recount Effort

I like Chris Wallace.  He is tough and fair when conducting an interview showing no favoritism to either side of the isle.

Unlike those before him, Chris Wallace did an outstanding job as moderator of the last Presidential debate showing himself the constant professional.

So when it was announced that Wallace would be interviewing Green Party candidate Jill Stein and her recount efforts, I was psyched.

However, as the interview drew to a close, my disappointment was quite visible to all those around me.  Not because of Chris Wallace, but in Jill Stein herself.  She proved to be an opportunist of the worst kind morphing into Franken-JillStein!

First, she claimed there maybe (and I emphasize MAYBE) a systemic problem with the voting machines.  How does she know this?  She doesn’t.

Even though these machines are not networked together nor are they connected to the internet, Stein maintains that they could have been hacked.  “By whom” I must ask?  Little Green men from Greenland?

She then said that if voting irregularities are found, even though there is no evidence or claims of irregularities by anyone but her, the recount would need to be expanded because “that’s what American voters are calling for.”

Really?  Needless to say, this begs the question, who and where is the plethora of American voters calling for a recount?

Are they her supporters?  To date, she has received 140,000 different donations to aid in her recount efforts.

Do the math.  Out of the over 120 million people who voted in the last election cycle, 140,000 is less than .0011 percent.

And I am betting most of these people wouldn’t have been involved in a recount if Stein hadn’t pushed them.

So I don’t see how she can justifiably say that American voters are calling for a recount cause they’re not!

Even Chris Wallace, who tried to remain impartial, rolled his eyes — looking off into space wondering how she could justify such a claim.

Wallace then brought up what may be the real reason behind Franken-Jillstein’s recount effort.  Money!  In the end, she may be as greedy as the Wall Street traders and the big banks she loves to vilify.

Here are the facts.  In Stein’s 2012 Presidential run she raised a whopping $893K.  In 2016 she did a little better collecting 3.5 million from her zombie-eyed followers.

But since she announced her recount effort and opened a web page to fleece her followers of their money, Franken-JillStein has raised 6.5 million from, as stated previously, 140,000 suckers.

Let me see if I got this straight.  Franken-JillStein swindled over six million dollars from her small faction of supporters, so why didn’t she use that money to post the one-million-dollar bond in the state of Pennsylvania?

Now that is a good question! But Wallace wasn’t able to ask it because Franken-JillStein kept grunting, talking over him avoiding his questions and touting things which weren’t relevant.

But here is a possible answer.  Could it be that just like the maniacal cult leaders of years past, Stein views the 6.5 million dollars she raised as belonging to her?  Maybe she felt the Green Party owned her some greenbacks for carrying their banner for the last two election cycles?

Stein admits there is not a shred of evidence of voting irregularities and then declared that we wouldn’t know if there are any until we go looking for them.  Perhaps fabricating them would be a better way to characterize the effort?

Lastly, around the 6 minutes 30-second mark, Franken-JillStein lets it slip that there is a second reason for the recount besides the green with envy money angle.

Wallace asked her how many votes she got.  Franken-JillStein refused to answer.  Instead, she rudely spoke over Wallace again explaining that Trump received less than Hillary.  And she wants to know how he won the election (I guess she never heard of the electoral college?).

Bada-Bing! I knew it!  Bill and Hillary are behind the recount effort.  And they are using Franken-JillStein to do their dirty work.  When will these people learn the Clinton’s cannot be trusted.

Just ask Debbie-Wasserman Schultz, or Dick Morris, Kathleen Willey, Vince Foster, Jennifer Flowers, Billy Dale, Jim and Susan McDougal, Arkansas, the list goes on and on!
