What is the real purpose behind Jill Stein’s “blame the Russians” recount efforts in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Michigan?
That’s the big question isn’t it?
Over at Debbie’s Sane Progressive Youtube page, she is getting HAMMERED for continuing to suggest that it’s all about “freedom and democracy and election integrity” and crap like that at a point where it is PAINFULLY obvious that it has NOTHING to do with any of that. All she has to do is read Jill’s damn petition to Wisconsin and she will know IN A HEART BEAT that it’s totally focused on the Clinton campaign’s earlier assertions that the Russians could hack our election system to make Donald Trump win.
And interestingly enough, as she pouts and tells folks they can go ahead and unsubscribe to her channel (as they are doing) she has YET to post a link in ANY of her videos linking her readers to Jill Stein’s petition so they can read it for themselves. That’s a little dubious, don’t you think?
Here is Stein’s Wisconsin petition. Judge for yourself what it’s about.
My opinion on the subject is well documented and based on a substantial amount of research. Plus, unlike Debbie, I come at this issue without the baggage of having been a Jill Stein supporter so identity politics doesn’t factor in with me.
Lastly on this part of the subject I just want too say Debbie’s latest video regarding Stein’s Clinton-inspired efforts include a long-time election integrity activist named Lianda Ludwig who, though her heart is clearly in the right place, has been taken advantage of, in my opinion. This is a comment I wrote on Debbie’s Youtube video of her interview with Lianda:

What is that she said? If the money does come from Soros, so what? Yeah. Got it.
Nationbuilder is a “Megaphone”-type platform where, for a monthly fee, folks with a cause can sign-up, collect donations and have their cause spread to all sorts of paid influence peddlers across the country. It was created by a guy who attended college where I grew up in Lynchburg Va. He attended Jerry Falwell’s Liberty University and was a fundamentalist Christian who loved George W. Bush and all things neoliberal until the Iraq War and a Robert Greenwald movie “changed his mind” and he became an “anti-war activist”. Or so the story goes.
This guy then has an idea for Nationbuilder and somehow gets Sean Parker to give him 35 million dollars in start-up money for the project. Sean Parker was the first president of Facebook and the CIA financial asset that gave Zuckerburg the money to kick it off.
This is what happens when people who don’t really understand deep state politics like Debbie of the Sane Progressive and Lianda Ludwig try to pretend like they do. They can’t see past the emotional connections they’ve made with their pet issues, in this case, a rather important pet issue: election integrity (something I have covered for years). They also tend to get trapped by identity politics and refuse too see the writing on the wall until it’s too late. Consider:
- Does anyone really think Jill Stein of all people could have motivated so many people to donate 6 million bucks in two days all on her own without Facebook’s Megaphone engine? Be serious. She only raise 3.5 million throughout her entire presidential campaign.. and I don’t care HOW you recount those votes, she’s not going to be president in the end, so WHY would her voters send her their money for this effort?
- Why did Jill take up this cause after the two main movers in the action met with Podesta and Elias of the Hillary Clinton team and then why did her petition focus on “Russian hacking” rather than privately owned electronic voting machines and secret software used to count the votes?
- Why is Elias and the Clinton campaign now saying they are getting on board with the action to “help” the process along?
Think about it.
So where did she get all that money so quickly? And more importantly, why was she allowed to do it and even have her initiative advertised on the corporate media? Why does it focus on Russia?
Good questions all and I think the answer is a lot more obvious than you might think.
