Supreme Court rejects lawsuit from Texas and Trump to overturn the election
The Supreme Court acted with unusual speed to reject a bid from Texas’ attorney general— supported by President Trump — to block the ballots of millions of voters in battleground states that went in favor of President-elect Joe Biden.

The court’s move to dismiss the challenge is the strongest indication yet, that Trump has no chance of overturning election results in court that even the justices who he placed on the Supreme Court have no interest in allowing his desperate legal bids to continue.

This is a blow to those that would derail democracy.
I guess Trump’s Supreme Court is part of the ‘Deep State.’

The court’s unsigned order was short: “Texas has not demonstrated a judicially cognizable interest in the manner in which another state conducts its elections. All other pending motions are dismissed as moot.”


Well, at least we now know that about 70 million unAmerican anti-Democracy "Americans" are just a shot away from insurrection. I'd rather it not be the case, but I'd rather know it then it to be real and to not know it.





Trumpism: the evil is the point, even when it's incredibly stupid evil.

It must really piss him off that Obama already infiltrated his SCOTUS nominees.
Yeah, Obama placed these giant sea pods in the judge’s bedrooms.
Seriously, the idea that Trump thought he could poison rational judicious behavior in cases that are meritless shows how Trump thinks like a corrupt mob boss.

We have 126 Republican Members of Congress who signed onto this suit. There is a move to not seat the, based on part of the 14th Amendment that forbids those that wage insurrection from being in Congress.

"The court voted 7-2 to dismiss the case. Justice Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito said they would have heard the case - but that they would have refused to overturn the election result effectively making the result 9-0. "



Trump called for the Supreme Court to show courage, and they did.

That sound you hear is 70 million trump supporters moving the goal post from "The Supreme Court will decide this" to "This will be decided by the Electoral College on December 14."

After December 14 I can only assume it will change to "This will be decided by armed patriots" or something.

Another loss for Trump....so sad.

At least he has to have the record for the number of losses in a single election.

Then they should provide for their own defense, pave their own highways, and pay for welfare medicare and medicaid on their own as well and we can sit back and watch the new red nation sink its mooching self.
Blue states subsidize the Red state dude.

This should only happen in a banana Republic. Not the US

The issue of the certification isn't final until January when Congress certifies as well.
