One of the bigger stories making the rounds of the alternate media and blogosphere this week is the effort of Green Party and its leader, Jill Stein, to raise funds in the hope of getting a recount in three pivotal states. This could end up being an end run around the democratic election of Trump...unlikely. Or, more likely, could further "delegitimize" the election in the wooly minds of the Sheeple.
Jill Stein says she'll file for recounts in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin as she racks up $4.5m from donors, but says she needs $2.5m MORE to push for Michigan and pay legal fees - and can't promise states will approve filings
- President-elect Donald Trump secured the White House when he amassed 290 electoral votes with wins in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin
- Green Party candidate Jill Stein wants a recount of the two states, plus Michigan, after computer experts said hacks could have occurred
- She raised $4.5million in two days online and claims the money will be used to pay for the recounts - but says she needs a total of $7million
- Initially she had set $2million as her goal, saying that filing fees would come to around $2.2million for the three states
- But that figure doesn't include legal fees or money to pay for recount observers, she wrote on her website
- Stein has confirmed that Wisconsin and Pennsylvania are both going to be filed - but she says she can only apply, not promise a recount
- If all three states are found to have actually voted for Hillary Clinton - an unlikely outcome - the presidency would then move to the Democrat
What is Jill Stein Up To?
Apparently, Jill Stein, in no time at all, has raised more money for the re-count than she did for her entire election campaign. This should raise some eyebrows...and it has. Paul Craig Roberts is asking: What is Jill Stein up to?
So is Dave Hodges in the video above and so is Stephen Lendman in this post on his blog. The Russians are even interested in the topic.
Well, the greencrow has her own theory...as per usual. Flying high gives a different perspective and, in my case, it cannot help but include the chequered history of the Green Party in Canada and elsewhere. Take Canada for example:
The Green Party here in Canada is a rump of whatever party the Zionist's support. In historical fact, the Zionists support both parties and all parties. It's like supporting both sides of a war or economic conflict..."you can't lose". Canada's Green Party leader...the drab and colourless matron, Elizabeth May has gonnections with the Canadian Jewish Community. That's her main claim to fame and to a very stable job as head of the Green Party.
Having a woman leader as head of the Green Party, no matter what country it's in is a very important feature. Women are great "fillers" of leadership positions where there is no future and no power. They are patient and compliant...and if they're not...they're easily disposed of. The Green Party is the quintessential "controlled opposition" and "gatekeeper" for all those pesky hot button issues like "Palestinian Rights-the ongoing Genocide in Israel", "pipelines and the environment" and true electoral democracy at the voting booth. They also spearhead distraction issues like LGTB and immigration issues. All in all, third party Green Party's are invaluable to Zionists. It allows them to control a myriad of issues below the radar...without ever doing anything about them. It fills a void for a "third choice" come election time...when there really isn't a third choice...or a first, or second choice. But it prevents any "real" third choice from ever springing up...because it [the mysteriously always solvent Green Party] has comfortably "squatted"...taking up that territory. But, most significantly, during an election, it gives the real Deep State controllers a vehicle by which to siphon off votes from a party that they have decided cannot, for whatever reason, form the government. That's the role the Green Party has played for years in Canada and no doubt, also in the US and throughout so-called "Western Democracies".
But, returning to the original premise of this post...Why the recent effort of Jill Stein to raise money for a "recount". What is the motive for that?:
The Green’s MotiveSo, there we have it. According to the predominant view of the alternative press...Stein is a Trojan horse. They think she's working for the Clintons. But I would submit she's working for the Deep State itself. She's a sock puppet...like all leaders of Green Parties....co-opted by the Ziofascists as a front.
Because of Clinton’s popular-vote plurality, there have been calls for electors from states that voted for Trump to change their vote to Clinton, but there is no indication that Trump’s electors are switching sides. Twenty-four states do not legally bind electors to vote with the popular will of their states. The electors will vote in their state capitals on Dec. 19. The Congress will certify the election on Jan. 6.
The move by the Greens raises many questions. At face value, they say the integrity of the electoral system is the only thing at stake. But the Greens must know that the recount effort could only help Clinton and hurt Trump.
Is there some collusion between the Democratic Party and the Greens? Are they a Trojan horse for Clinton who can stay above the fray while getting the recount that some of her supporters have called for?
Have wealthy Clinton donors been behind the flood of cash into the effort in so short a time? Or are the Greens sincere in wanting voting irregularities exposed? One theory is that the recount will expose cheating by both the Republicans and Democrats – and thus reflect badly on the two-party system which has marginalized the Greens and other third parties.
There’s also the mystery of why one Stein quote mentions “foreign agents” while another doesn’t. In the waning days of the campaign, Clinton and her surrogates attacked Trump by suggesting Russian agents were conspiring to install him in the White House. Why did Stein, at least briefly, pick up that Clinton theme even though DNI Clapper had distanced himself from the accusation?
Though there’s widespread doubt among election experts that an audit of the results in the three states will swing the election to Clinton, there now is the possibility that the unpredictable 2016 election might still have a few last-minute twists.

Different Kinds of Leaders - Two Traditional Types
Interestingly, just this morning, a local news outlet has published a report on a "leadership series" which is a thinly veiled attack on Donald Trump...being what the writer calls a "dominant leader" who is a bully, autocrat, etc. The writer shoehorns Donald Trump in as an example of this category of leader. Then there's the "prestige leadership". These types of leaders "get ahead by offering something of value to the group". Presumably Hillary is/was this kind of leader...lol.
But, I would submit there's yet another (third) kind of leader who shares the modern political stage with the above two leadership styles:
Then there's the modern day Sock Puppet Leader
This would, IMO, describe exactly any leader of any "Green Party"....impotently mouthing all kinds of socially correct and politically correct preaching's...while, like Jill Stein, being able to live comfortably on a salary and "pull money out of thin air" to run their vote-splitting campaigns and "special projects" like electoral recounts.
Sure...once every couple of generations, arising out of the political swamp, there comes a "real third party or independent candidate". Someone who is not a sock puppet...who speaks for himself and for the voiceless. In fact, the Americans had one such leader during the past election...his name was Donald J. Trump!
