Jill Stein, the Green Party candidate in the recent presidential election, conceded on Friday that there would not be a recount of votes in Michigan.

During a rally that drew dozens of supporters in frigid Detroit temperatures, Stein slammed the voting system in the Wolverine State, The Detroit News reported.

The Michigan Supreme Court put a halt to the recount a day earlier by a vote of 3-2, ending whatever faint hopes there were of going over all 4.8million ballots.

Stein insists that if the recount went ahead, Donald Trump, who officially won the state by 10,704 votes over Hillary Clinton, would have his victory overturned.

Even Obama Slams Stein’s Recounts: The Results “Accurately Reflect The Will Of The American People”


 

2016-11-26-hillary_0

Jill Stein’s credibility seems to be sinking fast as both the Obama administration and the Clinton campaign have released statements this morning indicating they’ve failed to uncover a single shred of election hacking evidence.  The Obama administration confirmed their confidence in the election results via comments made to the New York Times saying that the election was “free and fair from a cybersecurity perspective” and that votes “accurately reflect the will of the American people.”

The Obama administration said on Friday that despite Russian attempts to undermine the presidential election, it has concluded that the results “accurately reflect the will of the American people.”

 

The statement came as liberal opponents of Donald J. Trump, some citing fears of vote hacking, are seeking recounts in three states — Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania — where his margin of victory was extremely thin.

 

In its statement, the administration said, “The Kremlin probably expected that publicity surrounding the disclosures that followed the Russian government-directed compromises of emails from U.S. persons and institutions, including from U.S. political organizations, would raise questions about the integrity of the election process that could have undermined the legitimacy of the president-elect.”

 

That was a reference to the breach of the Democratic National Committee’s email system, and the leak of emails from figures like John D. Podesta, Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman.

 

“Nevertheless, we stand behind our election results, which accurately reflect the will of the American people,” it added.

 

The recount efforts have generated pushback by experts who said it would be enormously difficult to hack voting machines on a large scale. The administration, in its statement, confirmed reports from the Department of Homeland Security and intelligence officials that they did not see “any increased level of malicious cyberactivity aimed at disrupting our electoral process on Election Day.”

 

The administration said it remained “confident in the overall integrity of electoral infrastructure, a confidence that was borne out.” It added: “As a result, we believe our elections were free and fair from a cybersecurity perspective.”

TAXPAYERS SHOULD NOT BE ON THE HOOK FOR STADIUMS

In his promotional, “I Believe,” the never-gun-shy Simmons lays out some of his positions.

His last statement is the most notable: “I believe billionaires should pay for their own [expletive] stadiums.”

Michigan has a bad track record in this area. State and local taxpayers have coughed up huge for stadiums for the Lions in Pontiac (and then back to Detroit), for the Tigers at Comerica, and most recently for the Red Wings’ new arena. (Well-deserved praise is due for Bill Davidson, who owned the Pistons in 1988 and financed the Palace of Auburn Hills with no tax dollars).

Swiss sweep series, Japan relegated


Swiss-Japan-620x330

Japan won’t be returning to the IIHF Women’s World Championship next season.

The Japanese lost 4-0 to Switzerland in Game 2 of the best-of-three relegation round series on McArthur Island yesterday afternoon, losing their spot in the 2017 world championship in Plymouth, Mich.

The Swiss won back-to-back games in the series — 3-1 on Friday — and staved off relegation in 2016. The European nation outscored the Japanese 7-1 in the relegation round.

Evelina Raselli picked up her first point of the two-game series in the first period, opening the scoring midway through the frame to put Switzerland out to a 1-0 lead.

A little more than a minute into the second, Anja Stiefel extended the lead to 2-0, beating Japanese goaltender Akane Konishi, who was seeing her first action in the 2016 world championship.

Lara Stadler scored in 1:14 later, her third point of the night and seventh of the tournament, to put the Swiss ahead 3-0. She would also factor in on the Swiss’ fourth goal.

Switzerland’s Christine Hueni picked up points on all four of her team’s goals on Sunday — she scored the empty-net marker to make it 4-0 — bringing her team leading total to 10 points, including four goals, in five games.

At the other end of the ice, Swiss goaltender Florence Schelling stopped all 20 Japanese shots for the shutout. Konishi finished the night with 19 saves on 23 shots

Michigan patient’s mysterious infection matches deadly Wisconsin outbreak


A bloodstream infection that matches an ongoing bacteria outbreak in Wisconsin has been identified in Michigan, according to the state’s Department of Health and Human Services.

The state agency says a blood sample from “an older adult from West Michigan with underlying health conditions” has an infection caused by Elizabethkingia anophelis, which has affected 54 people in 12 Wisconsin counties across Lake Michigan, from Milwaukee west to Madison. So far, 17 people infected by the bacteria have died.

“Michigan has worked closely with the (Centers for Disease Control) and Wisconsin Health Department to alert our provider community about the Wisconsin outbreak and to ensure early recognition of potential cases in our state,” said Dr. Eden Wells, chief medical executive of the Michigan Department of Health and Human Service, in a prepared statement.

“Timely diagnosis is key to ensuring patients receive appropriate treatment, and we will continue to provide updates and guidance as additional information becomes available.”

It’s not known exactly where in West Michigan the patient is from. Kent County Health Department officials said the case is not in their area.

Elizabethkingia rarely makes people sick, and in the current outbreak is ailing mostly people who are age 65 and older and dealing with serious health issues, according to the Wisconsin Department of Health Services. Signs and symptoms that resulting from the bacteria can include fever, shortness of breath, chills or cellulitis.

MI officer dodges bullets during traffic stop (VIDEO)


It wasn’t “The Matrix” and although Officer Brad Gentry is no Keanu Reeves, he sure has moves like Neo, with dash cam footage to back up that claim.

Gentry was initiating a traffic stop in Battle Creek, Michigan, Saturday afternoon when he approached the car and said, “What’s up, man” to the driver, 21-year-old Darriyon Zamone Clark-Brown. Almost instantaneously, Clark-Brown opens fire on the officer, narrowly missing him as Gentry leans back to avoid being shot. Clark-Brown then sped away, as Gentry returned fire.

Following a brief pursuit which involved several more officers, Clark-Brown attempted to hide out as his mother’s home and became involved in an hours-long standoff with the police. Eventually, Clark-Brown was taken into custody after being bitten by a K-9.

Authorities say they are still unsure why Clark-Brown shot at Gentry, who other than being temporarily deafened, was otherwise okay.

Maj. Jim Grafton, with the Battle Creek Police Department called the incident “a safe resolution after a very deadly situation.“
