Esteemed Electors

Hamilton Electors has a very specific plea...

Hamilton Electors has a very specific plea to ALL of you that are Republicans, are connected to Republicans, or are in red states. PLEASE share this with as many people as you possibly can - there are potentially between 20 and 30 Republican Electors who are planning NOT to vote for Trump on Dec. 19th - THEY NEED OUR SUPPORT. Call for the #GrandCompromise2016

Cutting, pasting and sharing from my FB on what Hamilton Electors is needed

Cutting, pasting and sharing:
In a live Facebook session yesterday, a couple of the Hamilton Electors said that at this point what's needed aren't more letters and emails to the electors, but to:
(1) Contact your representatives and governors to ask that they demand that the electors be debriefed on the CIA information on Russian interference prior to Dec. 19, and to delay the electoral vote if that's not possible, given the time-frame;
(2) Contact the U.S. Attorney General and ask that the Electoral College vote be postponed until a full investigation of Russian interference and the Trump campaign's potential coordination with Russia is complete.
You can reach the Attorney General's office at 202-514-2000 (Comment line...press 4)
Please cut and paste to share this, and let's flood the office with calls.

Recent David Pakman video: "Trump Electoral Panic Grows, Clinton Camp Briefed on Elector Revolt"

Interesting...video. Not saying it will go anywhere, but it is interesting nonetheless:

Daily Kos: Arizona Republic - "37 votes can take presidency from Trump... That's All it Will Take:

Arizona Republic - "37 votes can take presidency from Trump... That's All it Will Take: 37"

Combined with the over the top reaction by the Republican SecState of Colorado in response to 2 Dem electors reducing Clinton's electoral vote count by 2... (www.politico.com/...) I'm feeling the tires starting to just maybe gain a little traction...

Trump, however, won enough states to garner 306 Electoral College votes, more than the 270 (out of 538) needed for him to be declared the winner.

Unless Ö

Thirty-seven people choose not to vote for him.

Thatís all it will take: 37.
Is the Trump camp sweating this a little bit? Idea starting to resonate a little? That we can right this wrong with just a little bit of intestinal fortitude?

From Daily Kos: State of the Recount: Michigan halted, hearing in PA, WI 70% complete (accurate?)

State of the Recount: Michigan halted, hearing in PA, WI 70% complete

In Michigan a ruling from a federal judge has ended any real hope of a complete recount.

A recount that started Monday ended Wednesday night. U.S. District Judge Mark Goldsmith set aside his earlier order that got the recount moving, acting after the state appeals court said Stein doesnít qualify as an ďaggrievedĒ candidate under Michigan law.
The initial order from Judge Goldsmith promised he would review his decision if there was a ruling from the state court. There was. He did. Itís over.

A federal judgeís ruling that effectively halted Michiganís presidential recount after three days assures Republican Donald Trumpís narrow victory in the state.
Considering Michiganís ruling that districts with even one ballot difference between paper ballots and reported totals couldnít be counted knocked out over 370 districts in the Detroit area alone, itís not clear that a recount would have actually addressed any genuine issues.

In Wisconsin the count is 70 percent complete, but it hasnít produced much difference in the outcome.

Is there more to the story in Michigan, or is this accurate? What about in WI and PA? Anyone have other information to share on the recount effort?

Palmer report update: Wisconsin recount: officials admit to double counted votes, wrong color pens,

Wisconsin recount: officials admit to double counted votes, wrong color pens, other absurdities

Now that the statewide recount in Wisconsin is underway, itís still difficult to predict whether the final vote totals will significantly shift to the point of taking the state away from Donald Trump and awarding it to Hillary Clinton. The bulk of the suspicion of cheating is now focused on Waukesha County, which is thus far refusing to do a hand recount. But even so, Wisconsinís official website is now admitting to a number of initial errors in various other counties Ė some of them reading like a bad sitcom.

The official Wisconsin election website has posted its latest recount updates as of December 7th. The list, which you can visit by clicking the above blue link, includes some rather stunning admissions. For instance Racine County is admitting that its vote totals have shifted in various precincts during the course of the recount because ďVotes were not counted on Election Night due to non-standard pens used to mark ballots.Ē What does this mean? Did poll workers give voters red pens, or magic markers? But it gets stranger.

FYI - This FB message from Jill Stein just came in regarding Michigan.

Yesterday, the U.S. Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed a federal District Judge's order and made clear that the presidential recount in Michigan should continue as planned. The ruling dealt a blow to Trump and Republicans in Michigan, who appealed to the court to try to stop Michigan's historic recount.

Yesterday, the U.S. Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed a federal District Judge's order and made clear that the presidential recount in Michigan should continue as planned. The ruling dealt a blow to Trump and Republicans in Michigan, who appealed to the court to try to stop Michigan's historic recount.
Matthew Brinckerhoff, a lawyer for the Stein campaign, said the following in response to the ruling:
"Today, Trump and his GOP allies in Michigan tried everything in the book to stop the recount, and they failed. This recount is continuing in spite of their efforts to suppress the vote.

"We applaud this decision by the Sixth Circuit, and look forward to continuing to fight for the rights of Michiganders to ensure their votes are recounted in a timely and thorough manner."

While the Michigan Court of Appeals also ruled this afternoon and directed the Board of State Canvassers to reject Dr. Stein's recount petition, they did not order the recount to be stopped because, as numerous experts have pointed out, their hands are tied by a U.S. District Court ruling ordering it to commence. Instead, the issue of the recount's constitutionality will likely return to Judge Goldsmith tomorrow, as the statewide recount in Michigan proceeds as planned.

Michigan officials admit majority of Detroit vote counting machines broke on Election Day

Was it merely old equipment which incompetent officials had failed to bother getting serviced, or was there something intentionally sinister going on? Thatís the question now coming out of Michigan, where just as the statewide recount is getting underway, officials are finally admitting that the majority of vote counting machines in Detroit broke on election day. The stunning admission, which is getting virtually no national news coverage despite appearing in a major Detroit newspaper, casts doubt on the legitimacy of Donald Trumpís supposed narrow win in the state.

Even now, elections director Daniel Baxter appears to only be making the admission as part of a convoluted argument for why the ballots in those Detroit precincts canít be recounted. Heís acknowledging that eighty-seven optical scanners in Detroit simply ďbrokeĒ on the same day. But he and other Michigan officials are now making the argument that, because the broken machines resulted in different vote totals on the machines than on the precinct log books, state law means those ballots canít be recounted.
