Jill Stein: Stealing Your Vote

Maybe Jill should investigate the Democratic Primary?
It would seem that if you live in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin or Michigan there is significant, and I think illegal, effort afoot to make your vote not count in the 2016. To wit, Jill Stein is apparently using her campaign site to solicit funds for recounts.

This is a national solicitation that crosses state lines.

  1. Is Jill Stein breaking any election laws?
  2. Are the her new "donations" all from the US?  Where's the audit of this?
  3. Are there any campaign finance limits being exceeded?  Again, where's the audit Jill?
  4. Why does her need for untraceable cash your money funds continue to increase (even beyond her total campaign contributions for the 2016 election)?
  5. The alleged purpose of the use of funds on the former campaign site is now to insure the integrity of our elections - not elect Jill Stein. How can this be right?  It's an election site, not an election integrity site?  Sounds more like bait and switch to me...
  6. In Pennsylvania, at least, there doesn't appear to be any obvious or easy path for recounts. Sure seems like "false advertising" to me conflating supposed "election" with "election integrity" for big money... Is this really about integrity or simply carrying water for Hillary (in which case we are running an election site for Hillary - is this even legal)?
  7. She represents knowledge of supposed foreign hacking via a "cyber security expert" - J. Alex Halderman - but this is really nothing other than supposition without evidence. Like saying "aliens did it" so send me money. Here's his C-SPAN interview: (Note that this interview occurred on October 4th,  2016 so this is nothing new or exciting.)  Should our election system be gamed in this way?
  8. Jill's sources of funding for the recount have some interesting properties (do we want our elections funded this way?):

The premise here is that some election device might be hacked - no doubt by Russians or aliens.  No chance people might have simply changed their minds about the value of voting for the left...

Poor J. Alex Halderman seems to forget that there are also people running these elections.  People who take what they are doing very serious (no doubt they have taken oaths in some if not all cases).

So his suppositions supersede the existing election infrastructure, which should be discarded and replaced, but with what Mr. Halderman?  I worked for a guy in the 1980's who was into this for Pennsylvania.  Believe me, they spent a long time figuring out the best thing for electronic voting (probably when you were still in diapers).  Only recently did we switch from mechanical voting machines to electronic.

The Spanish Inquisition?

Hanging chads?

Why not have a full stadium of people, then one at a time display each ballot on the Jumbotron.  Then have the stadium vote on whether or not the little black circle is in the correct box.  Then a twenty hour debate over what the voter "intended"...  Then on to the next vote.

At least that what Jill Stein thinks needs to happen...

Jill is not suggesting to take the money she bilked out of the snowflakes and buy secure, 100% infallible election machines...


She just wants to check up on your state because its not as blue safe for elections like her state...

Just by meddling about in this way she could, for example, cause the at least the Wisconsin recount to extend beyond the Electoral College deadline of 12/19/2016 and invalidate the entire state of Wisconsin's vote.

Thanks Jill, now my vote no longer counts because someone "might" have done something...

So if Jill finds a problems what do we do?  Go back and investigate Obama's election?  Reopen Al Gore's contest in Florida?  

Jill "promises" this is not the purpose of what she is doing... No, not at all.  But she is dishonest about where all this leads.  Only one single voice needs to start crying foul and the entire US election system will collapse.

That's where this all ends... You vote is gone.

This is a trick and so far it has separated fools from millions of dollars through, at a minimum in my opinion, false advertising.

Next Jill will try and separate you from your vote.

(Should Jill be accountable in the same way as she is asking the election infrastructure to be?)

If you feel this Jill Stein is wrong and is stepping outside the boundaries of what the election laws were intended to do in order to promote her agenda and cancel your vote I urge you to contact the FBI.

Ask them to investigate Jill, her funds solicitations and her "election integrity" activities.

As always I am interested in the impact of politics on vaping.  I don't think this is good.  Bernie to me represented a direct shot at changing the Senate via the HELP committee (which also has NC Senator Burr).  Trump has clearly stated an anti-regulation stance which would hopefully translate into wiping out the FDA deeming regs.

EDIT: Some confirmation perhaps:

Opioid Use Exceeds Tobacco Use...

According to the US Surgeon General on NPR "More people use prescription opioids than use tobacco." and "There are more people with substance abuse disorders than people with cancer. One in five Americans binge drink. And substance abuse disorders cost the U.S. more than $420 billion a year."

Let's think about this for a minute.

A problem more costly than tobacco.

I doubt anyone reading this doesn't know someone with a problem.

And directly caused enabled the the FDA (who approves opioid drugs in the US).  No one at the FDA, apparently, has noticed this.

No recalls.  No further study.  Nothing.

And they say vaping is bad...

You really gotta wonder.

Dear President Elect Trump...

I am writing to you a citizen concerned with what our government is doing to the health of millions of smokers.

About six year ago my wife, who smoked for more than forty (40!) years, became a vaper.

(I am going to assume you must know at least one person who does this.  If not its not hard to find examples... Your children most likely have peers who vape.)

The principle is simple: replace "tobacco combustion" with propylene glycol and flavoring to deliver nicotine to the human body.

Tar from combustion is what causes the myriad of medical problems associated with smoking.

This is what the Royal College of Physicians in the UK has to say:

Propylene glycol is used in a myriad of inhalation situations and has been accepted by OSHA as safe for a workplace environment.

On its own, without help from the government, these products have converted many millions of smokers to vapers in the US over the last five years.

Medical evidence continues to accumulate showing that vaping is some 95% safer than smoking.

(Mr. Pence did not support vaping in Indiana.  I hope that this is an oversight.  If not and he believes that vaping is truly harmful please ask him to do further research or I will be glad to provide information.  There is much information in this blog - as well as many, many others - that shows how vaping dramatically improves public health.

If he has had family die from tobacco-related cancer please understand my in-laws both died of smoking-related cancers.  I now feel that my wife will not because of her success with vaping.)

As vaping began to succeed the Obama administration's Center for Tobacco Products, created in 2009, created "deeming regulations" to treat vaping as if it were tobacco; in truth to slow down its adoption under the guise of "its harming children."

(Nicotine is a chemical compound found in many foods, not just the tobacco is a plant.  I believe its only addictive if you have a genetic predisposition for it.  I could not addict myself to nicotine while vaping.)

These new regulations are design to destroy the nascent vaping industry (comprised of thousands of independent shops) that server the millions of non-smoking US vapers today.

In addition, many states, following the FDA, are adding insane (40% and up) "vaping taxes" around the country.

Tobacco tax revenue has tanked and state governments are now having to pay directly from their general funds on their "tobacco bonds" from the 1990's "Master Settlement Agreement" due to the success of vaping (as well as other limits on tobacco products).

What will make our country great again is letting small business and consumers determine how to eliminate their addiction to smoking.

The only rule we would ask for is, of course, sell no vaping product to those under eighteen (which is already true in, I believe, all fifty states).

In 2010 nearly everyone in my family smoked "combustion cigarettes."

Today no one does.

And the FDA has and is jeopardizing this.

You can change this!

Please speak with Senator Burr of North Carolina on the HELP committee (  He has publicly questioned both the FDA and CDC on the wisdom of this in hearings over the last few years.

Unfortunately most smokers supported Hillary...  This has created a problem within the "vaping community" which prevents people from accepting that voting for President Obama and Hillary are the reason we have these regulatory problems in the first place; much as the liberal press prevented the Hillary supporters from seeing your opportunity for success.

I hold the Hillary supporting smokers no ill will and wish to save their lives as well.

(I do no smoke and never have but I vaped nicotine for a year without any ill effects or addiction.)

Most smokers want to quit (as did my wife).

This is the first technology that actually worked and now its being taken away.

Vaping worked so well we invested hundreds of thousands of dollars in shops only to be thwarted by the FDA and Pennsylvania tax authorities.

The taxes and regulations are crushing us and our business!

At its peak our shops served 2,000 customers.

I have contacted Newt Gingrich's office as well on this matter with the hope that someone will hear me.

If you are interested in saving some of the 440,000 people that die each year please contact me and I will be happy to provide more information online or in person at your convenience.

Thank You
