    Judge Brann mentioned the stilted remedy of the Trump campaign trying to disenfrachise millions of voters (mostly Biden voters) instead of trying to restore the claimed denied rights of a smaller percentage of Trump voters.

    Moreover, there's the issue of making grievances about ballots but selectively applying it to only one race, the presidential race, and not to all the other races in the state of PA that would also be affected by that same grievance.



    https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/zoetillman/a-judge-demolished-the-trump-campaigns

    excerpt:

    “Plaintiffs seek to remedy the denial of their votes by invalidating the votes of millions of others. Rather than requesting that their votes be counted, they seek to discredit scores of other votes, but only for one race,” Brann wrote. “This is simply not how the Constitution works.”

    Giuliani Got a Bad Batch of ‘Just for Henchmen’ Hair Dye, Colbert Says

    excerpt:

    " “Looks like Rudy got a bad batch of ‘Just for Henchmen.’” — STEPHEN COLBERT

    “Wow, nothing screams ‘confident lawyer’ like a guy standing in front of everyone dripping in sweat.” — JIMMY FALLON

    “You know your legal strategy is [expletive] up when even your hair starts crying about it.” — TREVOR NOAH

    “It was going down both cheeks. This dude was growing a chin strap beard in real time.” — TREVOR NOAH

    “I mean, Trump always said that he had leakers in his administration, but I didn’t know it was this bad.” — TREVOR NOAH

    “Later, they had to clean Rudy off like a sea gull in those commercials for Dawn dish soap.” — JIMMY FALLON

    “His face looks like what happens when you wring out a rag at Jiffy Lube.” — JIMMY FALLON

    “But this is good — Rudy dried himself off by standing in front of a leaf blower from Four Seasons Total Landscaping.” — JIMMY FALLON"

    Republicans in PA are now calling a PA election law unconstitutional that they passed with wide margins in 2019.


    Republicans launch Pennsylvania lawsuit that argues GOP-backed bill allowing universal mail voting is unconstitutional

    Republicans launch Pennsylvania lawsuit that argues GOP-backed bill allowing universal mail voting is unconstitutional

    excerpt:

    "The lawsuit quickly drew heated criticism, including accusations that Kelly (who was just re-elected himself) and the other plaintiffs are "openly rejecting democracy and the rule of law," but many observers were simply perplexed. For starters, the bill was passed over a year ago, raising questions as to why its constitutionality wasn't brought up between then and now. Plus, it was pushed through thanks to a majority GOP state legislature, with only one Republican member of the state House voting against it, while GOP senators backed it unanimously."

    Trump requests a recount in Georgia after the hand recount was completed.

    The Trump campaign requested a recount in Georgia one day after the state's election results were certified and showed Biden won by more than 12,000 votes

    Yet another law suit 'thrown out of court' !!!


    US Election: What Happened In Pennsylvania Yesterday And Why It's Devastating For Donald Trump
    A federal judge described the president's legal claim as a "Frankenstein's Monster".

    On Saturday a US judge dismissed in extraordinary terms, yet another lawsuit critical to Donald Trump’s bizarre, desperate and long-shot bid to overturn his election defeat to Joe Biden.

    The Trump campaign had sought to prevent state officials from certifying the results of the election in the state of Pennsylvania where Biden won by 81,000-votes.


    This is as mad as it sounds and unsurprisingly the Trump campaign has already failed in similar bids in courts in Georgia, Michigan and Arizona.

    In the latest ruling in Pennsylvania, US District Judge Matthew Brann described the case as “strained legal arguments without merit and speculative accusations”.

    He added that he “has no authority to take away the right to vote of even a single person, let alone millions of citizens”.

    “This claim, like Frankenstein’s Monster, has been haphazardly stitched together.”

    Since Biden was declared the winner two weeks ago, Trump has launched a barrage of lawsuits and mounted a pressure campaign to prevent states from certifying their vote totals.

    The Pennsylvania case had been presented by Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani who presented no evidence of the voter fraud he has repeatedly said was rampant during the election.

    Giuliani did not immediately respond to HuffPost’s request for comment on Saturday evening.

    Asked earlier whether he had made a deal with Trump in exchange for a preemptive pardon, Giuliani told a HuffPost reporter, “get lost”.

    Biden got 6 million more votes than Trump in the November 3 election, and also prevailed 306-232 in the state-by-state Electoral College system that determines who will take the oath of office on January 20.

    He has spent the past several weeks preparing to take office, though Trump’s administration has refused to provide funding and security clearances to do so.

    Critics say Trump’s refusal to concede have serious implications for national security and the fight against the coronavirus, which has killed nearly 255,000 Americans.

    Trump skipped a global coronavirus pandemic meeting to play golf on Saturday.
    In order to remain in office, Trump would somehow need to overturn election results in at least three large states - an unprecedented feat in US history.

    A recount in Georgia only affirmed Biden’s win there, and officials certified the result on Friday. Trump’s campaign said late Saturday it would request another recount.

    In Wisconsin, election officials have criticised Trump volunteers for slowing a partial recount that is not expected to overturn Biden’s victory.

    With recounts and lawsuits coming up short, Trump is now pressuring Republican-led state legislatures to throw out the vote totals and declare him the winner.

    “Hopefully the Courts and/or Legislatures will have ... the COURAGE to do what has to be done to maintain the integrity of our Elections and the United States of America itself,” he wrote on Twitter after the Pennsylvania ruling.

    On Friday, he summoned two top Republicans in Michigan’s legislature to the White House. After the meeting, they said they saw no evidence that would lead them to intervene. Biden is leading Trump in Michigan by 154,000 votes.

    Election officials across the country say there is no evidence of significant voting fraud, and Trump’s own administration has called the election the “most secure in American history”.

    But Trump’s accusations have continued to inflame his hard-core Republican base.

    Half of Republicans believe the election was stolen from Trump, according to Reuters/Ipsos polling, and supporters have staged rallies across the country to protest the outcome.

    Trump tweet Nov. 21:

    “Why is Joe Biden so quickly forming a Cabinet when my investigators have found hundreds of thousands of fraudulent votes, enough to ‘flip’ at least four States, which in turn is more than enough to win the Election? Hopefully the Courts and/or Legislatures will have the COURAGE to do what has to be done to maintain the integrity of our Elections, and the United States of America itself. THE WORLD IS WATCHING!!!”

    Trump is becoming increasingly desperate.


    Trump calls on GOP state legislatures to overturn election results

    excerpt:

    "To succeed, Trump's plan would require several unprecedented legal steps. First, Republican-led legislatures in states Biden won would need to move to overturn their state's popular vote and appoint a slate of Trump electors when the Electoral College meets on Dec. 14. In Pennsylvania and Michigan, such maneuvers would be certain to meet vetoes from Democratic governors, so the lawmakers would also need to secure a legal determination that they hold the sole power to appoint electors — a disputed legal premise that has never been tested.

    Trump's call for lawmakers to hand him the election is the most overt call he's made yet for state lawmakers to overturn the election results. But it also underscores his dwindling options: Michigan is due to certify its vote totals on Monday, as are Pennsylvania counties, which would hand the statewide certification duty to Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar, a Democrat. On Friday, Georgia certified Biden’s victory."

    Trump might want to consider inviting more state legislators to the White House and give them a free luxurious stay at his Trump International Hotel.

    He might need to expand his invitations to judges and governors, including Democratic governors in PA, MI, WI, MN, and NV whose confirmations (near impossible) he would need to pass his desired legislative maneuvers (highly unlikely) by Republicans in those states that are needed to overturn the election.

    Trump and his people have been avoiding facing questions.

    White House press secretary McEnany did her first briefing in 7 weeks.



    Trump is in an unprecedented streak of silence - CNN

    excerpt:

    "It's not just Trump who is avoiding the press. Acting Defense Secretary Christopher Miller hasn't fielded any questions, despite the White House's decision to draw down troops in Afghanistan and Iraq. And Vice President Mike Pence has taken no questions, despite his role as head of the Coronavirus Task Force.

    "It's a broader effort throughout the entire government," said CNN White House Correspondent Kaitlan Collins on "Reliable Sources" Sunday.

    People who work closely with Trump don't want to answer questions about what the president is doing because he's still attempting to overturn the results of the election behind the scenes -- and know they'll face questions about the president's efforts, to which they have no answers, Collins added.

    "Officials are refusing to either comment on this or put themselves in a situation where they know they would be asked about this right off the bat from reporters," Collins said.

    White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany showed up to a press briefing on Friday, her first one in seven weeks. At the end, she refused to take a question from Collins, calling her an "activist.""

    The Trump administration didn't consult with Congress or NATO before instituting the troop reduction.

    Michigan House speaker floats possibility of 'constitutional crisis'

    excerpt:

    "Lansing — Michigan House Speaker Lee Chatfield referenced the possibility of a "constitutional crisis" during an interview on Fox News Sunday morning, two days after he huddled with President Donald Trump at the White House.

    The Board of State Canvassers meets Monday to consider certifying Michigan's statewide election results, including President-elect Joe Biden's 154,000-vote victory. But top Republican Party leaders have asked the board to delay certification in a bid to investigate "anomalies and irregularities" they claimoccurred on Nov. 3.

    The board features two Republicans and two Democrats. Many legal experts believe the panel has a duty, under Michigan law, to certify the results Monday.

    "If there were to be a 2-2 split on the State Board of Canvassers, it would then go to the Michigan Supreme Court to determine what their response would be, what their order would be," Chatfield, R-Levering said on "Fox & Friends" Sunday. "If they didn't have an order that it be certified, well now we have a constitutional crisis in the state of Michigan. It's never occurred before.""

    Michigan House speaker floats possibility of 'constitutional crisis'

    excerpt:

    "If the board certifies the results, under state law, Michigan's 16 electoral votes will go Biden, who won the state by 14 times the margin Trump won by four years ago. The Electoral College meets on Dec. 14.

    Many legal experts believe if the board doesn't certify the results, the courts will order the results be certified. State Sen. Jeremy Moss, D-Southfield, referenced this expectation, highlighting a 2005 Court of Appeals ruling where the panel was forced to certify a petition.

    "GOP leaders know this, instead choosing to sow doubt," Moss tweeted. "But our system will work.""
