Hillary Clinton files motion in support of hand recount in Wisconsin

Hillary Clinton has filed a motion to intervene in a lawsuit filed by Jill Stein seeking to require all Wisconsin counties to recount presidential votes by hand.

A Dane County judge is set to hear the Green Party candidate's case Tuesday at 4:30 p.m. If Stein is unsuccessful, each of Wisconsin's 72 counties will have the choice of counting ballots by hand or by machine.

Also on Tuesday, Stein's campaign is required to submit $3.5 million to cover the costs of the recount, a figure based on estimates provided to the state Elections Commission by county clerks. The actual projected cost is $3.9 million, but the cost given to Stein's campaign was $400,000 short of that due to an adding error.

Stein called the cost "exorbitant" and "excessive" but said she plans to pay it. Elections administrator Michael Haas said Stein's campaign will be refunded if the recount comes in under the stated cost.

Trump voters *wanted* to be lied to about this.

85% of lost U.S. manufacturing jobs are due to technology (automation), not international trade.


Many are quick to blame trade for a loss of jobs in the manufacturing sector, yet Solís affirms that the predominant force behind losses in manufacturing employment has been technological change (85 percent), not international trade. As she explains, automation has transformed the American factory, and the advent of new technologies (like robotics and 3D printing) has rendered many low-skilled jobs unnecessary.

KT McFarland outed brother to family & ignored him while he was dying of AIDS.

Trump’s nat’l security pick outed gay brother dying of AIDS



..............

“I am proud that KT has once again decided to serve our country and join my national security team,” Trump said in a statement. “She has tremendous experience and innate talent that will complement the fantastic team we are assembling, which is crucial because nothing is more important than keeping our people safe.”

A profile piece for New York Times Magazine in 2006, however, reported she “couldn’t abide” her brother being gay. The article unearthed a 1992 letter to her parents in which she reportedly outed her brother, Michael Troia, shortly after she discovered he had AIDS, blamed her family’s troubles as a result of childhood abuse.

“Have you ever wondered why I have never had anything to do with Mike and have never let my daughters see him although we live only fifteen minutes away from each other?” McFarland reportedly wrote. “He has been a lifelong homosexual, most of his relationships brief, fleeting one-night stands.”

Pressed about her brother by New York Magazine for the 2006 profile piece, all McFarland would reportedly say about him was “Ummmm. He was sick and then he died.” According to the article, McFarland said her memory of her father’s behavior toward her family surfaced as a recovered memory and a therapist put her up to writing the letter.
