There’ve been a few theories as to why Jill Stein is bilking the gullible out of millions of dollars for this recount Kabuki.
There’s the “Steal the Election” Theory. Stein is a secret Soros operative trying to enable Hillary Clinton to steal the election from Trump by tying states up with recounts so their Electors can’t be counted.
Personally, I don’t think Stein is that diabolical. Although, to be fair, she is stupid enough to be used as an unknowing dupe. Stein puts the “idiot” in Useful Idiot to be sure.
But the chance that this recount can steal the election for Hillary is about as likely as Hollywood Liberals getting on a rickety boat and heading to Cuba to escape Trump.
Then there’s the “Attention Whore” Theory. Stein knows this quixotic recount will fail. But it is the perfect opportunity to get her face on network and cable news night after night.
Plus, tens of thousands of butt-hurt Hillary fans will turn her into an overnight hero and start following her on Facebook and Twitter.
And as an added bonus, Stein can bilk millions from these butt-hurt Hillary fans to finance a future run for the Presidency.
That theory is far easier for me to buy than the “Steal the Election” Theory.
During the election, Stein couldn’t get the Enslaved Press to look her way even if she stripped naked and played the bongos while bellowing, “I’m a lumberjack and I’m okay!”
But according to the Media Research Center, Stein has gotten twelve times the news attention for this recount Kabuki than she did for her campaign.
Given all that, the “Attention Whore” theory looks pretty plausible.
But there is another theory being bandied about. Perhaps you’ve heard.
That is the “2020 Theory.”
Hillary Clinton is using this recount and the subsequent disarray it causes to prepare for her third run for the Presidency in 2020.
Raising doubts about legitimacy of election, even w/out overturning result, is part of Clinton's plans to keep her options open for 2020

Now, first of all. Consider the source here.
Ron Fournier is also the guy who said we Americans were all going to miss the Obama family when they left the White House.
That alone kinda confirms he’s not right in the head.
I mentioned the other day that this Recount Kabuki is all about delegitimizing Trump’s Presidency.
They know it will amount to nothing. But by sowing the seeds of doubt that Trump’s win was legitimate, the Left hopes to effectively cripple his time in office.
It’s exactly what they tried to do to George W. Bush after the 2000 Florida kerfuffle.
But Hillary planning for a big comeback in 2020?
I’m not so sure.
But, what the hell. Let’s think it through.
The woman’s on death’s door already – knocking maniacally like some Girl Scout trying to make quota.
What are the chances she’ll still be on this side of the grass in four years?
Then again, Hillary and her entire campaign live in a perpetual state of denial. For over a year now, they’ve pretended Hillary is as healthy as a horse.
It’s possible these people simply refuse to accept the fact that she’s sick as a dog.
Or perhaps the plan in 2020 is to once again make history – this time by being the first dead person to ever win a major party nomination.
Which is less about breaking the glass ceiling and more about breaking through the gates of Hell.
But at the same time, there’s no reason to pander for the dead vote. The Democrats have those people in the bag already.
Let’s concede, however, that Hillary manages to stay in the land of the living for the next four years.
What are the chances the Democrats will go down that road yet again?
To believe Hillary can rise like a dark phoenix from the ashes of the burnt-out Democrat Party and lead them to victory in 2020 is laughable.
She was past her expiration date in 2016.
But like I said, Hillary is in a perpetual state of denial. Ever since she was handed an electoral landslide defeat on November 8, she has blamed her loss on everyone and everything other than herself.
I have no doubt she is clinging to her landslide victory in California as proof positive the rest of the country is eager for another chance to vote for her.
Though I am sure Jill Stein did not launch this silly recount with Hillary’s 2020 comeback in mind, I suspect that may have a lot to do with why Team Clinton climbed on board.
So, yeah. I think the 2020 Theory may have some credence.
Let’s face it. Hillary’s lust for power knows no bounds.
She wants to be President more than she wants to be wealthy.
Do you think she’ll let two presidential defeats stop her?
Come on. Even death wouldn’t get in this woman’s way.
