Jill Stein has filed the papers to begin a recount of the votes in Wisconsin, and recounts will follow in other swing states. Ignoring the publicly acknowledged Russian involvement in the leak of DNC e-mails, and the publicly acknowledged attempts of Bright Bart and others to spread false news stories and suppress voter turnout in key areas, Rona Romney assures us that there is no reason for a Michigan recount. No indication of anything wrong at all in the elections, all the Republicans will be saying.” Of course, we may then simply be recounting the fraudulently cast votes. These people are chess players, and have surely thought out this move, and many others, ahead of time. But it is worth checking, and Jill Stein has reminded the nation that one is not quite President elect until the meeting of the Electoral College on December 19. The main reason, Ms. Romney, for a recount is the same as the reason for withholding the electors or for responsible electors to change their vote. While physical manipulation of votes would be obviously illegal, the internet manipulation of votes by a foreign power may not even yet be illegal, and may be impossible to detect, especially for us, if our computer security allowed this occur to begin. But the electors can survey the whole circumstance, and change their vote if only they do not trust the Russian involvement and the Russian interests exposed already. The electors can still fill their originally intended constitutional role of preventing tyranny, and we encourage them to do so. Since the Donald does not know what he is doing anyway, and all his intellectual content that is politically legitimate, aiming at the common good, is coming from the Republicans anyway, the United States has little to lose if we simply rid ourselves of this potential disaster. Sorry, Donald, its nothing personal, just business. But if we do not, we and the rest of the world may indeed have everything to lose.
This election was fraudulently turned by the Russians working through the internet spying and marketing system that includes Facebook and Kaspersky, and other things like that. We could not reason it out ahead of time, but it is impossible to have free elections and free government any longer if we are going to be so slavish about spying and marketing. While there are some Trump supporters, those that surprised the pollsters may not exist at all. The truth may be that we have been reasoning backward, assuming that the election was fair, and hence taking the assumed results to be the near fifty percent “mandate” that the Trumpsters would like. It is hard to tell the difference between 46 and 51% by looking out one’s window. But America is not that course yet. We have called for the actuaries to consider the popular vote in comparison with the swing states, and it was reported last Friday on NPR that computer scientists had some questions, and that a Prof from Washington suggested the electoral college turn the election, as we would for one revealed to be an axe murderer between the election and the meeting of the college. The Donald was looking quite fascist in his appointments until this became a public issue, then suddenly he loves the Jews and is back peddling on all his fascist plans that had so encouraged that 10-25 % of what is now the Republican party, the one half of the Republicans who support him and are not concerned about his openness to fascist proposals.
When the Republicans saw the reaction to the hiring of Mr. “platform for the Alt-Right,” the Donald quickly went public about his Jewish Son in Law and his support for Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. He is not himself a literal Nazi. Nazism is one kind of fascism, while there are other kinds. Twentieth Century Totalitarianism is an anti-Biblical thing, as evidenced in the strange hatred of Hitler for the Jews. We say, as an hypothesis, “That was the book of Daniel. This may be the Revelation.” This may well be the sort of tyranny that pertains to the end times. The tyranny of the Antichrist will be anti-Christian, and this does not exclude the possibility that for a while it appear “Christian.” The “Evangelicals” have lined right up, with a few exceptions, behind the promised Trail of Tears and indiscriminate war in the Middle East. The Jews may have been the object in World War Two, the Christians and Muslims in III. Trump will use the hatred of the Jews for Islam, and the outgroups targeted by American “White guy” fascism will be the Moslems, the blacks and the Mexicans, at least at first. Again, we think that Trump himself is not quite a Klansman like Mr. Spencer or a Nazi like David Duke. But his openness and tolerance for the treasonous advocates of the “Ethno-state” seems to have inspired the world-wide encouragement of fascism, as in France. He does not really understand treason, and this fact might be argued in his defense at his impeachment trial in the Senate, should the recall fail and the electors remain “faithful.” It is the same Republican self interest that led to his election as that Republican self-interest which will lead to his impeachment, when it dawns upon 60% of Congress that this is fascism and not really what they had in mind. If they are not too late, we may then have President Pence. If we are too late, we will have civil strife, foreign war and the beginnings of the devolution of the Union back into states, as sanctuary cities will protect the innocents he intends to harm by setting them on his Trail of Tears.
The goal of Putin is to get America into self-destructive civil conflict and even a third world war against all of Islam, so that he may take Europe, and if possible, seize the arms of the United States, which he does not even need to possess if he can but direct them. This circumstance is so obvious and so dangerous that responsible electors very well might change their votes. But Putin is having his way with us, as he and the extreme right, the KKK, will have their way with the Trumpster. The Republicans think they can control Trump, but they are mistaken. If, between the election and the electoral college, it should become agreed that the President Elect were an axe murderer, the electors would change their vote- though one does wonder about these “Republicans.” A Million American lives lost in a needless war may hang in the balance, and they are still knee-jerks, and these are understatements. I have told two Trumpsters, “you will send your son/grandson out in a brownshirt and receive him home in a box for a war we did not need to fight.” Again, ISIS seems easy, but Putin plans to see to it that we are ensnared, and our own stupidity regarding Islam would be enough to ensnare us. One is reminded of the word “republic” in the old title of the U.S.S.R. There is a similarity between the use of speech in propaganda and in shysterism. Treason, too, has become difficult for them to understand if they but see dollar signs or despise Hillary. Unlike Trump, Hillary is not a crook, does not change opinions according to her advantage, and will not say and do anything to market her brand, and, contrary to the National Enquirer, is not in league with Russia.
The Donald seems very worried even about a recount. As I have written, it does seem to me that someone promised him the election, and that Steve Bannon has been rewarded. The Americans do not see what is at stake, and barely know the difference anymore between tyranny and liberty, the KKK and the thought of Thomas Jefferson. But Emmitt Till knows the difference.
Violence in these matters will not work, but is guaranteed to occur if the Electoral College is called upon and fails. They can get us to strike one another, but no one can find the persons doing these things. It is our own defects, though, that make us vulnerable to it, just as the border will remain porous without a revolution in the integrity of border patrols, their profit motive and their example. As St. Martin taught, sit down! stand up!!But I myself would lie down in the freeway before Mr. Bright Bart, Steve Bannon, were allowed to enter Washington unopposed. So I suppose I draw the line when the platform provider for the “Ethno-state” becomes Chief of Staff and is to enter Washington. Our own State, to0o, may choose to remain under the U. S. Constitution, as may many others, once it becomes clear what these powers have in mind. And need we warn them not strike women and children in our presence? And to be equal, they may add the gentlemen. American Government indeed has checks and balances.
Yeah Jill Stein! Yeah American Constitution! Lets now awaken, and find this all to have been a bad dream, even like the Wizard of Oz, with the man behind the curtain exposed and Dorothy back in Kansas!
