In 2000, Al Gore lost the presidential election by a few hundred votes in the State of Florida. He immediately demanded a recount of a select group of counties, and subsequently proceeded to ignore the state recount deadlines, verifications, certifications, and other legislated election processes by appealing to the federal court system. After much legal maneuverings at the federal level, the Supreme Court put an end to his activities and George W. Bush became President. Unfortunately, the House of Representatives, Senate and even the federal courts did not understand the implications of what Gore did.
At the time, Gore was supposed to run away with the presidential election. Bill Clinton had given him plenty of support based on his personal favorable poll numbers. Gore managed to mess it up and Bill Clinton’s advocacy was rendered meaningless. (Logically, Hillary Clinton was expected to follow a successful Gore into the presidency.)
What we see today with Jill Stein, a surrogate for Hillary Clinton, is something similar to what happened with Gore. Stein, who is supported by a substantial bank account, has appealed to the federal courts for a recount in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. She well knows that she has not or cannot meet the state legislated recount deadlines, verifications and certifications, – and she doesn’t really care. Her intentions are to put at risk the State votes in hopes that the States will not be able to send electors to the Electoral College.
Remember, Hillary Clinton was supposed to run away with the presidential election. Obama, although a disaster as a President, had managed to remain personally favorable. He, along with a compliant mainstream media, was supposed to propel Hillary to victory. (Hillary didn’t count on the “Silent Majority” having had enough of global socialism and her.)
As a conservative Republican, I dislike having to layout conspiracy theories because they often assume a level of intelligence and corruption that is truly evil. Nevertheless, I believe a warning is in order because the similarities between Gore and Stein are much too obvious.
The incoming Republican Congress should create legislation that supports a state’s right to control its own election processes. It is essential to stop this abusive post election behavior before the nation is treated to an actual coup where a duly elected President finds the vote suppressed or stolen.
