Here is some meat for you guys. As I have believed, they are going to cover this up to maintain voter integrity, that is the real reason for the stoppage.

MADISON, WI – Here are the latest recount developments from the Wisconsin Elections Commission:
After Tuesday, December 6, approximately 70 percent of the 2.97 million votes cast in the election have been recounted, and all Wisconsin counties remain on track to finish their work by the deadline of 8 p.m. Monday, December 12.
Thirty-four counties have completed their work: Adams, Barron, Bayfield, Columbia, Crawford, Dodge, Door, Douglas, Florence, Fond du Lac, Forest, Green, Green Lake, Iron, Jackson, Juneau, La Crosse, Lafayette, Langlade, Menominee, Ozaukee, Pepin, Pierce, Polk, Price, Sawyer, Shawano, St. Croix, Taylor, Vernon, Walworth, Washburn, Washington and Waupaca. This list does not include counties that have finished recounting ballots but have not yet reported those results to the Commission.
The Commission is now able to provide a running tally of how many votes each candidate is up or down. However, the numbers do not include the City of Milwaukee, which has reported partial numbers for individual reporting units (wards or combinations of wards) because it is recounting absentee ballots separately.
Based on this analysis, Trump/Pence are up 410 votes, Clinton/Kaine are up 492 votes, Castle/Bradley are up 12 votes, Johnson/Weld are up 46 votes, Stein/Baraka are up 60 votes, Moorehead/Lilly are up 9 votes, and De la Fuente/Steinberg are up 7 votes.
Trump/Pence originally led Clinton/Kaine by 22,177. So far, not including the City of Milwaukee, Clinton/Kaine have gained 82 more votes than Trump/Pence, but still trail.
Attorneys for Jill Stein filed an application for leave to appeal to the Michigan Supreme Court Wednesday morning following a state Court of Appeals ruling ordering the Board of State Canvassers to stop the recount.
The Michigan Supreme Court hasn't said whether it will accept the appeal or not, but it's likely the last legal option for Stein.
Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein, who requested the recount, asked that Young and Larsen recuse themselves from hearing an appeal of a Michigan Court of Appeals ruling that said that the Board of Canvassers should never have approved the recount and that it should stop.
Young disqualified himself from the case “with reluctance,” reiterating his own previous comments that “anybody can make a list” and suggesting that, at age 65, the odds of Trump picking him for the U.S. Supreme Court are “extraordinarily remote.”
“I do so in order that the decision made by my colleagues in this case will not be legitimately challenged by base speculation and groundless innuendo by the partisans in this controversy and beyond,” Young said in a statement.
Larsen, 47, said she did not take the decision to disqualify herself lightly but conceded that her appearance on a Trump campaign list of 21 possible Supreme Court nominees creates a conflict.
“I did not seek inclusion on the list, had no notice of my inclusion before its publication, and have had not contact with the president-elect, or his campaign, regarding the vacancy,” Larsen wrote.
Federal Judge Paul Diamond plans to rule by Monday morning on whether or not a partial Pennsylvania recount should move forward. Attorneys representing Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein are seeking a forensic analysis of voting machines in six counties, including Philadelphia, as well as a hand recount of paper ballots from a single precinct in 17 other counties.
Pennsylvania must certify its presidential electors by Dec. 13, and Diamond seemed concerned that ordering a recount would push that back — endangering all six million Pennsylvania voters of being disenfranchised entirely.
The Michigan Supreme Court has denied Green Party candidate Jill Stein's appeal to restart the statewide presidential recount, exhausting what's likely the last legal option for the Stein campaign.
In a 3-2 order issued Friday evening, the court ruled a recount petition in Michigan "must allege both that fraud or mistake exists and that the alleged fraud or mistake caused the candidate to be aggrieved."
Numbers for the City of Milwaukee do not include absentee ballots, which have not yet been recounted. Milwaukee counts its absentee ballots centrally (not at the polling place) on Election Night. When those absentee ballots have been counted the numbers will be updated.

isn't that too late to do any good?
Did PA certify the whole state yet?

Partial recount of Nevadans’ presidential ballots confirms Nov. 8 results
CARSON CITY — A limited recount of presidential ballots cast in Nevada confirmed the results of the Nov. 8 election and eliminated the possibility of a statewide recount, the secretary of state’s office said Thursday.
The partial recount in 92 precincts, requested and paid for by independent candidate Roque “Rocky De La Fuente, “yielded no change in the number of votes cast for him,” said Secretary of State Barbara Cegavske.
The recounts did result in nine fewer votes for Democrat Hillary Clinton and six fewer for Republican Donald Trump, but no other changes were identified, the Secretary of State’s Office said in a news release.
