Jill Stein's proxy war to propel Hillary Clinton into the White House is over. She's abandoning her Pennsylvania recount, and with it any hope to reverse Donald Trump's Electoral College advantage.
Green Party-backed voters dropped a court case Saturday night that had sought to force a statewide recount of Pennsylvania's Nov. 8 presidential election, won by Republican Donald Trump, in what Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein had framed as an effort to explore whether voting machines and systems had been hacked and the election result manipulated.
The decision came two days before a court hearing was scheduled in the case. Saturday's court filing to withdraw the case said the Green Party-backed voters who filed the case "are regular citizens of ordinary means" and cannot afford the $1 million bond.
Looks like her fund-raising fell short.
And so, without an opportunity to revert Pennsylvania's 20 electoral votes to the Dowager Empress of Chappaqua, Stein's recount efforts in Wisconsin and Michigan won't matter. Trump will officially win the presidency on December 19th.
So why is she soldiering on?
In a word, to deny Trump legitimacy.
With 306 electoral votes Donald Trump's victory is a veritable landslide.
But suppose that her recounts drag out, and Wisconsin and Michigan fail to complete them by the December 13th deadline? Well then those states won't be able to certify their results, in which case their electors will not be bound to Trump.
Suddenly 306 electoral votes become 280. And a ten vote margin is hardly a mandate.
Still don't think Hillary's campaign is colluding with Stein on the recounts? Because if you don't, George Soros has a bridge in Brooklyn he can let you have, cheap.
There's no way that a nobody candidate who barely raised $3 million dollars in more than 2 years suddenly finds herself awash in more than twice that much cash in 2 weeks. Not unless a whole lot of prominent Democrats are writing her checks. And not unless she, overtly or not, promised them she'd help Hillary steal the election.
But wait, there's more proof that Hillary's harridan hordes are playing dirty. PA is doxing electors, leading to incessant harassment. Democrat Governor Tom Wolf, doing his best to one-up his convicted felon attorney general Kathleen Kane, released the names, addresses, and phone numbers of Trump's PA electors.
He didn't do this because he's for open government.
He did it to promote thuggery.
Remember all the holier than thou preening when Donald Trump said he "might not" accept the results of the election? Yeah, me neither. Because the preeners are now engaged in an all-out assault on our nation's electoral integrity.
Fortunately their machinations will amount to nought. But it goes to show us
just how low they'll sink, how they'll leave no stone unturned in their quest
for power. And thus they remind us of why we must remain eternally vigilant.
