Auditing the results of a presidential election is sedition, according to CNN and MSNBC. It might even qualify as treason! Election audits are bad – especially in Maricopa County, Arizona – because it “undermines democracy.” Questioning the results of an election puts People of Color in danger. This is the litany we’ve been hearing for months from the media and the Democrat Party.
But it wasn’t always this way in America. Election audits used to be a patriotic duty. It was the only way we could have faith in the system. Democrats, journalists and college professors were the biggest proponents of election audits. No, really. It’s true! Take a magical journey back in history with me, dear readers, to a time known as… 2016.
November 8, 2016. Such a glorious night! The media had repeatedly been reminding us all for the previous 24 years that Hillary Clinton was destined to be America’s president. And then Donald Trump’s voters handed Crooked Hillary her walking papers that night. It was beautiful. Libs were crying everywhere.
“But how could this be?” wondered the libs. College professors provided the answer: Putin hacked our democracy for his puppet Donald Trump!
Hundreds of college professors signed an open letter to Congress and to the state leaders in Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania. They demanded that the 2016 election results in those three states must be audited, post-haste! The Department of Justice and the FBI should step in and start arresting any state election officials who objected to the demanded audits. Democrats in Congress and TV news anchors joined the chorus: Audit the 2016 election in Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania because Putin hacked the results.
There was no doubt whatsoever in the minds of the professors, TV anchors and congressmen what would happen if an audit uncovered fraud. Even though every state had certified its election results by the end of November 2016, it would mean curtains for Donald Trump. They’d just throw out the election results and install Crooked Hillary in the White House where she had always belonged.
Calls for audits went on for three weeks after the 2016 election. One person was standing off to the side during all of this, frantically shaking her head and waving her hands to try to get all of her supporters to shut up. Out of all the liberals in America calling for an audit of the 2016 results, the only one who absolutely DID NOT want to see an audit take place was Crooked Hillary Clinton.
Finally, a savior arose from the ranks in late November 2016: Jill Stein.
Yeah. Remember her?
Stein came up with the money to pay for a hand recount in Michigan somehow. It wasn’t an audit, but whatever. The media was jubilant. Victory over Donald Trump was at hand! Democracy would be saved!
The Republican Party sued to try to stop the hand recount in Michigan. Trump’s victory had been certified on November 28 that year, by a narrow margin of 10,704 votes. But an Obama-appointed federal judge named Paul Diamond ruled that Jill Stein totally was an “aggrieved party” who “had standing” to call for a recount in Michigan despite pulling in just 1.07% of the vote.
Yeah. Donald Trump didn’t have standing in 60 court cases in 2020, but Jill Stein’s 1.07% of the vote in 2016 was enough to trigger a recount that the left hoped would overturn the election results.
Anyway, the big day finally arrived. After Judge Diamond’s ruling the hand recount could get under way in Michigan on December 5, 2016. Hallelujah! Crooked Hillary was about to be our president, just like MSNBC said she would! Our democracy was about to be saved! It was on like Donkey Kong!
The Michigan hand recount immediately discovered – and threw out – 20,000 fraudulent ballots for Crooked Hillary in a single Detroit precinct. Instead of uncovering Putin-Trump election shenanigans, the recount immediately tripled Trump’s 10,704-vote margin of victory to more than 30,000 votes. The fraudulent votes were all the usual Democrat election stuff: Dead people voting, illegal aliens voting, out-of-state people voting, and people double- and triple-voting.
Hilarity ensued just two days later when Judge Paul Diamond took the remarkable step of changing his mind and overturning his own ruling. After the 2016 recount started to reveal that the Democrats had cheated and tried to steal the election – and still lost to Donald Trump’s massive wave of support – Diamond suddenly decided that Jill Stein did not have standing after all. Judge Diamond demanded that the hand recount be immediately stopped. (Anyone want to take a bet on whether Hillary and the DNC called the judge when their fraud was just starting to be uncovered?)
If you go the Wikipedia page for the 2016 election or check any site that talks about the Michigan results that year, it still says that Donald Trump won by 10,704 votes. The result was never recertified, and the 20,000 fraudulent Hillary votes were never taken off the official total, because the hand recount was not completed.
The 2016 election may not be ancient history – but it sure does explain a lot of things that are going on right now, doesn’t it?
