Pennsylvania Recount Unlikely

Legal experts are saying a Pennsylvania recount is unlikely. Trump is up by 70,000 votes there, well over any recount margin in the past. Reasonable doubt would have to be established before a court. Hearsay from a couple of "experts", vs facts that no evidence of voter fraud has been documented. Fact is according to news reports on election day there were vast claims of voting machines changing Trump votes to Clinton, so if anyone had a claim it would have been if Trump would have lost.
By the way Michigan just completed a recount, and certified the results, and Trump still won the state, so a challenge there will produce zero results as well.
Major democrats are reporting discomfort at Stein's circus as it will forever taint democrat claims that the election results should be accepted lest the democratic process be undermined, as Hillary claimed of Trump. Even the Obama administration over the weekend released a statement that the election was valid and that that transition should move forward.
Stein is simply getting the depleted green party coffers replenished for 2020 and suckers are buying up. Won't stop the media from using the "suspense" to tarnish Trump's transition to power and inauguration day.

Valerie Jarrett Key Player in Fast and Furious Cover-Up After Holder Lied to Congress

If you need a refresher, Fast and Furious is a US lead gun operation that lost track of 1000s of weapons that fell in to drug runners hands one of which was used to murder agent Brian Terry, and several other agents over the years. What was missing was a key principle in the operation, now through Judicial Watch we know who that is.

Via Judicial Watch:


President Obama’s trusted senior adviser, Valerie Jarrett, was a key player in the effort to cover up that Attorney General Eric Holder lied to Congress about the Fast and Furious scandal, according to public records obtained by Judicial Watch.
The information is part of a Department of Justice (DOJ) “Vaughn index” detailing records about the gun-running operation known as Fast and Furious. JW had to sue the agency for the records after the Obama administration failed to provide them under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). A federal court ordered the DOJ to provide the records over the agency’s objections. 

Yesterday JW reported on the broad information in the records, including that Obama asserted executive privilege for Holder’s wife as part of the administration’s efforts to cover up the scandal.

Practically lost in the 1,000-plus pages of records is an index that shows Jarrett was brought in to manage the fact that Holder lied to Congress after the story about the disastrous gun-running operation broke in the media. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco Firearms and Explosives (ATF) ran the once-secret program that allowed guns from the U.S. to be smuggled into Mexico so they could eventually be traced to drug cartels. Instead, federal law enforcement officers lost track of hundreds of weapons which have been used in an unknown number of crimes, including the murder of a U.S. Border Patrol agent in Arizona.

The files received by JW include three electronic mails between Holder and Jarrett and one from former U.S. Attorney Dennis Burke to Jarrett. The e-mails with Holder are all from October 4, 2011, a significant date because, on the evening of October 3rd, Sheryl Attkisson (then at CBS news) released documents showing that Holder had been sent a briefing paper on Operation Fast and Furious on June 5, 2010. The paper was from the director of the National Drug Intelligence Center, Michael Walther.

This directly contradicted Holder’s May 3, 2011 testimony to the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, during which he stated that he, “probably heard about Fast and Furious for the first time over the last few weeks.” The October 4, 2011 date may also be significant because it came shortly after the August 30, 2011 resignation of U.S. Attorney for Arizona Dennis Burke and reassignment of acting ATF director Kenneth Melson to the position of “senior forensics advisor” at DOJ.

The description of one of the e-mails, written from Jarrett to Holder, reads, “re: personnel issues.” Another, also from Jarrett, reads, “outlining and discussing preferred course of action for future responses in light of recent development in congressional investigation.” Unfortunately, the index is vague and that’s all the information we have about them. Nevertheless, given the timing and subject of these e-mails, it seems clear that Jarrett quickly became a key player in the Fast and Furious cover-up in the immediate aftermath of the revelation that Holder had lied to Congress.

Comey's Investigation had nothing to do with Trump's rise in the polls

Analysis of Trump's rise in the polls shows that the Comey announcement on October 28th, had little or nothing to do with it. According to Nate Silver, 528 and other polling prognosticators that Trump's rise began before that. One, a poll taken before Comey's announcement showed that more than 42% of Clinton supporters considered her dishonest, but would still vote for her. Trump's rise is due mostly to anti-establishment fever, independents breaking his way 3-1, along with more support from blacks (34%), than previous elections. All told that the numbers would be as tight even if Comey never mentioned any results, or even if Clinton was under investigation.

The news that Comey still won't bring jobs hurts Clinton more than Trump because it verifies his, "The system is rigged", which a majority of Americans already believe, as well as the public belief that Clinton is above the law.

So while not the news people wanted it nonetheless is better for Trump than Clinton at this point, who's Foundation is still under investigation.
