And … Cut!

The recount was over when the appeals court said Stein had no standing.

That’s a wrap, everyone can go home.

As I said yesterday, when the Michigan court of appeals demonstrated the logic we expect from our best legal minds, it was a done deal.  Tonight, the big news is that judge Goldsmith followed the constitution, and responded properly to the state court decision of recount propriety. From ABC news:

U.S. District Judge Mark Goldsmith agreed with Republicans who argued that the three-day recount must end a day after the state appeals court dealt a blow to the effort. The court said Stein, who finished fourth in Michigan on Nov. 8, didn’t have a chance of winning even after a recount and therefore isn’t an “aggrieved” candidate.

“Because there is no basis for this court to ignore the Michigan court’s ruling and make an independent judgment regarding what the Michigan Legislature intended by the term ‘aggrieved,’ plaintiffs have not shown an entitlement to a recount,” Goldsmith said.

Clearly, he recognized his role was not to determine standing in this case.

The image on the right btw, is for those who think the GOP is forcing them into a safe space.

    Well, it was either judge (((Goldsmith))) dislodged his head from his ass and be a good schmuck or judge (((Goldsmith))) would be further exposed as the Lois (((Lerner))) type cabal legacy that Carl (((Levin))) now hides from.

    "In June 2009, U.S. Senators Debbie Stabenow and Carl Levin recommended Goldsmith, an Oakland County Circuit Court judge since 2004, to President Barack Obama for nomination to the federal court to fill the vacancy of U.S. District Judge John Corbett O’Meara, who decided to go to senior status and a reduced caseload. On June 21, 2010, the U.S. Senate confirmed Goldsmith, and he received his commission the following day."

    Oy gevalt! That's Lev Davidovich Bronstein type shit right there.

    "..That’s a wrap, everyone can go home...." please don't (ever again) petition the Party which grassroots conservatives are supposedly "changing" to finally fix voter fraud statewide (all the votes not countable in Detroit, absentee ballot delivery shenanigans before the election ever began, etc., etc.) versus pouring that money (instead) in to election day data mining for 'the good of the Party'.

    At least our kids understand their parents/grandparents standing idly by while everything about them is data mined every single day in their grassroots conservative-approved school systems.

    It is no surprise that 'Patriots' caring that little about their own (grand)children's private identities during this lame duck(?).... would be more than eager to celebrate the "everyone can go home" quitting whistle in regards to the canceling of their votes through intentionally ignored fraud as well.

    The MiGOP (now):
    "See!!!...there was absolutely nothing to see here in Michigan regarding the perpetual perversion of your vote after all!!!...THANK YOU Michigan grassroots conservatives!!!
