An alarming Security Council (SC) report circulating in the Kremlin today is expressing "astonishment/amazement" over a desperate Hillary Clinton "money grab scheme" that is causing chaos among the American electorate—and that her US supporting mainstream media propagandists will not tell the truth about, and could lead to civil war. [Note: Some words and/or phrases appearing in quotes in this report are English language approximations of Russian words/phrases having no exact counterpart.]
According to this report, Dr. Jill Stein, the minor Green Party candidate for the 2016 US presidential election, this past week began soliciting donations to recount the votes in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvanian—which the Green Party has done in past elections as they have long complained about the integrity of the American voting system.
To the inanity of the American people who have, so far, given Dr. Stein $6.2 million for her "quixotic" effort, this report continues, it mirrors other such unexplainable actions by these peoples—and includes this past week them giving over $100,000 to a group called Cards Against Humanity to dig a hole for no reason that this group, also, openly stated was not going to charity and that it was all for them.
Where in the past Dr. Stein's efforts would have gone virtually unnoticed, this report details, Hillary Clinton, without being asked (and being told by Dr. Stein she didn't want Clinton's help) , joined this recount charade and began begging for donations too.

With overseas governments clearly feeling there is nothing left to buy from Hillary Clinton due to her humiliating defeat by President-elect Donald Trump, this report continues, this latest "money grab" scheme of hers is meant to replenish her dwindling funds—and that includes the government of Australia cutting off all their funding to her, Norway decreasing their funding by over 90%, and her only being able to gain 5 new donors between 1 July and 30 September, all of whom are known and/or suspected criminals.
Instead of the US propaganda mainstream media exposing Hillary Clinton for her "money grabbing" scheme, this report notes, only President-elect Trump has told the American people the truth that Clinton's actions are a scam—and who is supported by the simple fact that he holds a 306 elector lead compared to Clinton's 232, with Michigan being the last US State to certify that Trump won later today.
To the full complexity of Hillary Clinton's "money grabbing" scheme, this report explains, is to needlessly (and harmfully) drag out the 2016 US presidential election for as long as possible in order for her to gain millions-of-dollars more in donations—but that critically centers on court challenge later today in the State of Pennsylvania.
According to this report, Dr. Jill Stein filed her "Verified Petition for Recount" in Wisconsin this past Friday (25 November) 90 minutes before the deadline citing as evidence an affidavit written by J. Alex Halderman, the director of the University of Michigan Center for Computer Security and Society, who says he found persuasive evidence that results in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania may have been manipulated or hacked—and who is, likewise, expected to make the same claim when Dr. Stein files for recount in Michigan today before that State's deadline too.
In Pennsylvania, however, this report explains, this US State doesn't allow for a recount, instead forcing anyone contesting an election to file a court challenge and providing evidence that the election was flawed—and that runs counter to President Obama's White House declaring that it has seen no evidence of hackers tampering with the 2016 presidential election.
With US federal law stating that presidential recounts must be completed within 35 days after an election, and that the 50 American States certification of their electors must be done on 13 December before they vote for the US president on 19 December, this report continues, the "true/real" evil machinations of Hillary Clinton's "money grabbing" scheme is readily apparent—to keep the Electoral Collage from being able to vote thus gaining her millions-of-dollars more by conducting needless recounts, and then filing hundreds of court challenges to prolong this process even further.
And should the US Electoral Collage not be able to vote to declare President-elect Trump victorious on 19 December, this report grimly concludes, Hillary Clinton may actually get the American civil war she warned about should Trump be elected—and that may have been her ultimate goal all along.

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."

The statement from the White House was followed by a statement from Hillary's general counsel, Marc Elias, who confirmed that they too "had not uncovered any actionable evidence of hacking or outside attempts to alter the voting technology."
Because we had not uncovered any actionable evidence of hacking or outside attempts to alter the voting technology, we had not planned to exercise this option ourselves, but now that a recount has been initiated in Wisconsin, we intend to participate in order to ensure the process proceeds in a manner that is fair to all sides. If Jill Stein follows through as she has promised and pursues recounts in Pennsylvania and Michigan, we will take the same approach in those states as well. We do so fully aware that the number of votes separating Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton in the closest of these states—Michigan—well exceeds the largest margin ever overcome in a recount.
Of course, while Stein reiterated numerous allegations of foreign
hacking that were well circulated, yet never officially linked to a specific source, before the election, her petition didn't offer a single shred of actual, tangible evidence that the election results in Wisconsin were in anyway tampered with.
In August 2016, it was widely reported that foreign operators breached voter registration databases in at least two states and stole hundreds of thousands of voter records.
Around that time, hacker infiltrated the e-mail systems of the Democratic National Committee and a campaign official for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. These e-mails were then published online.
On October 7, 2016, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence on Election Security issued a joint statement regarding these breaches. The statement reads, in pertinent part, as follows: "The U.S. Intelligence Community (USCI) is confident" that there have been "recent compromises of e-mails from US persons and institutions, including from US political organizations." It also states that "[t]here thefts and disclosures are intended to interfere with the US election process" and that "similar tactics and techniques [have been used] across Europe and Eurasia…to influence public opinion there." In the statement, DHS urges state election officials "to be vigilant and seek cybersecurity assistance" from that agency in preparation for the presidential election.
In Wisconsin, there is evidence of voting irregularities in the 2016 presidential election that indicate potential tampering with electronic voting systems. Specifically, there was a significant increase in the number of absentee voters as compared to the last general election. This significant increase could be attributed to a breach of the state's electronic voter database.
The well-documented and conclusive evidence of foreign interference in the presidential race before the election, along with the irregularities observed in Wisconsin, call into question the results and indicate the possibility that a widespread breach occurred.

Even her so-called "computer science expert" offered up nothing more than baseless theories on "plausible" explanations of how the Wisconsin results may have been hacked. Sure, because it's just so impossible to believe that a flawed candidate with multiple ongoing FBI criminal investigations may have simply lost the election.

So, the question becomes how will Jill Stein respond now that the establishment seems to be turning on her and what exactly will happen to the $5.8mm she raised if recount efforts are suspended? Somehow we suspect the disaffected Hillary donors won't simply get their money back.

As an update, after coming under attack from almost everyone today for her unfounded recount crusade, Jill Stein has lashed out against her critics with a tweet storm of her own. Among other things, Stein vowed to file recount petitions in any state where the applicable deadlines had not passed and lashed out at the other parties for not participating amid "so many questionable results." Might we respectfully suggest, Ms. Stein, that more people may take an interest in your efforts if you could offer up a single shred of evidence to support your wild accusations.
Apparently, suggestions that Stein is merely serving as a pawn of the Clinton campaign also struck a nerve.

Four ISIS gunmen were killed today after they opened fire on Israeli soldiers in their first attack on the occupied Golan Heights.
The Israeli soldiers were targeted with machine gun fire and mortars but were unhurt and fired back.
But the gunmen – believed to come from a group called Shuhada al-Yarmouk, which is affiliated to ISIS – were killed by an Israeli air strike on their vehicle.
Israel Defence Force spokesman, Lieutenant Colonel Peter Lerner, said the soldiers were from the Golani Brigade.
Since the beginning of the Syrian civil war in 2011, stray shells have hit Israel but today was the first deliberate attack on Israeli forces.
Nitzan Nuriel, a retired Israeli general, said: ‘A direct attack like that on Israeli activities on Israeli side of border – this is the first time.’
He said he was baffled what lay behind the attack and said: ‘They know exactly what the Israeli response would be. An Israeli front is the last thing ISIS needs at this stage.’

General Nuriel, a former director of Israel’s Counter Terrorism Bureau, said he suspected the attack was the idea of local hotheads rather than a change of policy ordered by ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu congratulated the soldiers who ‘successfully repelled an attempted attack on the convergence point of three borders’.
He added: ‘Our forces are prepared on our northern border, and we won’t let ISIS elements or other hostile elements use the cover of the war in Syria to establish themselves next to our borders.’
Israel seized 460 square miles of the strategically important Golan Heights in the Six-Day War of 1967 and later annexed it. They have always refused to return it to Syria and have never come under pressure to do so from their closest allies, the United States.
Israel has assiduously avoided being drawn into the Syrian civil war.
Although many Israeli politicians have gloated at the trouble Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad – a long-time Israeli enemy – has faced, the instability in the region has given many ordinary Israelis the jitters.

Six are now dead from a rare “thunderstorm asthma” outbreak in Melbourne, Australia.
Five more remain in intensive care units, with three in critical condition, and another 12 are in hospitals for less severe respiratory problems.
A thunderstorm in the city November 21 started the asthma outbreak. After a very hot, high pollen day, the sudden high winds and heavy rain soaked ryegrass pollen grains, causing them to explode and send tiny pollen particles deep into the lungs of city residents. Pollen grains are usually too small to penetrate into the lungs, and instead lodge in the nose, causing much milder hayfever. For people who are sensitive to the pollen, inhaling tiny grains into the lungs can cause a severe respiratory reaction, Christine Jenkins, a clinical professor at the George Institute, explained to the Guardian.
More than 8,500 people in the city of 4.5 million sought treatment in hospitals, overwhelming the city’s medial services.
Health Minister of the state of Victoria Jill Hennessy said the surge in demand for medical services “was like having 150 bombs going off right across a particular part of metropolitan Melbourne,” Deutsche Welle reported.
Around one in 10 people in Australia have asthma, according to Asthma Australia. About a third of people who sought medical treatment for asthma attacks after the storm had never experienced asthma before.
Thunderstorm asthma has been reported around the world since the 1980s. The world’s first recorded thunderstorm asthma incident was in Melbourne in 1987, AP reports. The last major event in Melbourne was in November 2010.

Stephen Moore, the chief economist at Heritage Foundation and a Donald Trump advisor, went on Sunday Morning Futures to discuss the current situation with the Stein-Clinton recount efforts.
Moore warned that if the vote is overturned in Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania the country will be looking at a civil war.
Stephen Moore: Well, I guess I'd start by saying denial isn't just a river in Egypt. Democrats are still in a state of denial about the election… For the most part Donald Trump won in an electoral landslide. I will say this, if the Democrats challenge this and try to change the election I think there would be a bit of a civil war.
Donald Trump won Pennsylvania by 70k, Wisconsin by 27k and Michigan by 10k votes.

Donald Trump launched into a furious Twitter rant Sunday morning, calling Hillary Clinton a hypocrite for joining Jill Stein's call for recounts in three key election states.
Clinton's team said on Saturday that it would be part of a recount initiated by Stein in Wisconsin, and would support recounts in Michigan and Pennsylvania.
Trump responded Sunday morning with a six-tweet-long screed in which he held up Clinton quotes from before and after the election, in which she called his own similar remarks about election recounts 'horrifying.'
At around 7am EST, Trump tweeted: 'Hillary Clinton conceded the election when she called me just prior to the victory speech and after the results were in. Nothing will change.'
Then, an hour later, came the six-tweet message in which he initially quoted Clinton's remarks from the third presidential debate.
'Hillary's debate answer on delay: "That is horrifying. That is not the way our democracy works. Been around for 240 years. We've had free and fair elections.
