Trump lost the election fair and square well over a month ago. By significant margins.

Since November 3, we’ve seen a torrent of bad faith lawsuits brought in state and federal courts. All have been tossed out by sometimes annoyed judges, serious people who don’t want their time wasted.

Trump and his flunkies such as Senator Graham have sought to have swing state governors try to override their state’s vote by means of legislative legerdemain. The governors have said no. Apparently, even Trump supporting governors don’t want to go down in history as betrayers and plotters.

Now, the ultimate ” Hail Mary “.

Meet Ken Paxton, Attorney General of Texas. He’s an alleged inside trader, indicted and awaiting trial, under FBI investigation for subsequent crimes. ( which didn’t prevent his re-election in Texas )

Paxton has initiated a US Supreme Court lawsuit against the states of Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin, seeking to throw out the votes from those states, handing the election to honest Donald Trump?

The chance of this suit being successful is less than the chance of Colm becoming the next emperor of Japan, but it might get Mr Paxton a presidential pardon before Trump leaves office.

What a complete waste of time all of this is.

  1. “but it might get Mr Paxton a presidential pardon before Trump leaves office.”

    I suspect that was one of Mr Paxton’s motivations. And just general pandering to the Trump base.

  2. Trump lost the election fair and square well over a month ago. By significant margins.

    LMAO

    nothing more need be said

  3. So tell us Phantom….. what is the suit based on? What does it allege? How did it go directly to the Supreme Court? Are any other States joining Tx in this Law Suit?

    It’s easy to just snicker and sneer, it’s a little more difficult when you add substance, or is it you just don’t know any of those things?

  4. In my view if Trump pulls this off, other than the voting machines this case is actually his best shot. The SC even though they told the 4 states to file briefs have not yet agreed to hold a hearing.

  5. I’m not getting into the weeds here.

    I only say that the chance of success is a lot closer to zero than it is to .00001%, and that the terse dismissals by multiple judges show that they’re sick of the nonsense.

    The disgrace Sean Hannity had Paxton on last night, both of them breathlessly speaking of this lawsuit as though it was a real thing.

    Gateway Pundit is filled with reports on this fake lawsuit. Naive people are being fooled.

  6. someone once said
    Trump is a hero for stoopid people
    someone once said
    Trumps base are losers who have been made to feel like winners in 2016
    Now the base in 2021 are going back to what they always were : losers

  7. Mocking Trump voters Hillary style and vice versa is how we got to the bad place we’ve been in .

  8. How did it go directly to the Supreme Court?

    Isn’t it the only court that has the jurisdiction to hear state v state cases? (Where’s Mahons or Seamus?!)

    Even so, isn’t it probable it wont hear it?

  9. Indeed. The Supreme Court has exclusive jurisdiction over disputes between states. However, contrary to some misinformation going around the internet, the Supreme Court is not duty bound to hear a dispute between states. Only the Supreme Court can hear it but that doesn’t mean they must hear it. Only one Justice on the Supreme Court, Clarence Thomas, has held the position that the Supreme Court must hear all disputes. In place the State of Texas will seek leave to file the case, with a simple majority on the Supreme Court needed to give them that – that first hurdle will almost certainly kill the thing. In previous cases the Supreme Court has only intervened in a dispute between states if it cannot be resolved in another court, even if it can’t be resolved by the same parties. If the same questions can be answered in a lower court, even with different parties to the suit, then leave to file will be rejected. Questions to the constitutionality of the actions of the States of Georgia, Michigan and Wisconsin, and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, can and have been answered by lower courts. It is not a uniquely state v state issue and thus it is not essential that the Supreme Court disrupte the normal appellate procedure to hear it. It is worth noting that the Supreme Court rarely hear an original state v state case (less than one case per term).

    In what is frankly an insane move by the State of Texas they have not, in any way, shape or form, addressed that point in their filings. They in no way speak to why these issues cannot be resolved in the state courts, or the lower federal courts.

    Quite notably, the person who represents the State of Texas in cases before the Supreme Court, Kyle Hawkins, the Solicitor General of Texas, is not named as party of the lawsuit. Think about that for a second. The person who represents the State of Texas in cases before the Supreme Court did not join the State of Texas’ case before the Supreme Court on this issue, so much so that Attorney General, Ken Paxton, had to seek outside counsel to represent him on it.

  10. Wow.

    And we again note that a number of Republican lawyers and law firms have similarly declined to take part in the meritless suits.

    It is been a tenet of many Republicans that there are too many lawsuits in this country ( there certainly are )

    These abusive legal proceedings are an incredibly un-Republican thing to do. Trump’s endless racing to the courthouse makes him the ultimate Democrat.

  11. I won’t get into the weeds….. that’s because you lack the machete of knowledge, but I knew Seamus would bail you out and he elaborated on the most vital point…. the court has to agree to take it which they haven’t done they’ve only asked for briefs.

    The issue of taking it up directly though Seamus and the reason it wasn’t even addressed is due exactly because of the time table. Any solution that takes place must take place before the only real hard date Jan 20th because that’s the swear in date. Which is also why the State also setting precedent requested a specific ruling. That the Choice of Electors be sent to the elected representatives of each of the individual states to pick the electors. In doing so no ones votes are disenfranchised.

  12. Trump’s Texas election lawsuit has the same odds of succeeding as all his other election lawsuits: literally zero. His odds don’t magically improve just because he’s more desperate.

    best line of the week is Jim Acosta’s
    “Trump still has the state of denial”
    Brilliant Jim !

  13. Save some ammo, Phantom. You have four years to explain why you voted for the Chinese Communist Party.

  14. “The issue of taking it up directly though Seamus and the reason it wasn’t even addressed is due exactly because of the time table. Any solution that takes place must take place before the only real hard date Jan 20th because that’s the swear in date. Which is also why the State also setting precedent requested a specific ruling. That the Choice of Electors be sent to the elected representatives of each of the individual states to pick the electors. In doing so no ones votes are disenfranchised.”

    Which doesn’t address the main question the Supreme Court determines when deciding to take a case like this up. Can the issues addressed in the case (regardless of the timetable) be answered in the lower courts, or can they only, and exclusively, be answered in the Supreme Court? And the answer is 100% that these questions can be addressed in lower courts. So for the Supreme Court to even give Texas leave to bring the case would be shattering precedent (and a shattering of precedent that would massively increase the number of cases going to the Supreme Court).

  15. petem we won’t be pressing our noses into chinese butts , like GOP stuck into Putins
    that’s for sure .. looks like a honey trap to me on topic of Stallwell
    He’ll have to answer for it , unlike your side we take responsibility !
    its called “morality”

  16. It can’t be taken up by the Lower Courts. The issue is the Presidential Election, no ther court can rule on it because every other lower court is regional.

  17. Firstly it can be taken by the lower courts, which is why the first (failed) strategy of the Trump regime was to take it through the lower courts.

    Secondly the Presidential election is regional, not national. There is no Presidential election, but 56 separate elections, the manner of which is then determined by the states.

    Thirdly, plenty of things are decided on at a national level but are still not automatically elevated to the Supreme Court level. Almost every state action against the federal government has national implications but they almost universally will go through the lower courts, then will be eventually appealled to the Supreme Court.

    The case can only start in the Supreme Court if the lower courts can’t rule on them. That is only a very, very limited type of case. The Texas case is not one of those limited cases. The arguments advanced in the Texas case can and have been (and failed to be persuasive) in the lower courts. The correct procedure would be to take it through the lower courts and then appeal to the Supreme Court. The Texas AG is trying to skip a few steps here.

  18. looks like a honey trap to me on topic of Stallwell

    It looks like he was shagging a Chinese spy, and he won’t be the only one. The evil CCP has bought its way into the Oval Office and the Chinese will now do to the American people what Stillwell was doing to the commie bint.

    Yes, if that was a GOPer caught in the act it would be rolling news here instead of roundly ignored.

  19. Yesterday Trump lost his Pennsylvania case in the Supreme Court by 9:0. He has been saying for months that he was counting on SCOTUS to get him re-elected but the scumbag traitors have left him in the lurch. Not even dissenting notes from Thomas and Alito. Surely it can’t get any worse than that?

    The Texas “case” has been described as a press release masquerading as a legal action.

  20. Aw shucks, if only this news had broken six weeks ago it could have made… probably no difference whatsoever to the election result. But maybe Trump can launch another legal challenge on the back of this?

    “US President-elect Joe Biden’s son Hunter has said his tax affairs are under investigation. The investigation is being conducted by federal prosecutors in Delaware. Hunter Biden said he took the case “very seriously” but was confident an “objective review” would show he had handled his affairs “legally and appropriately”.

  21. Believing anything in Gateway Pundit will only lead to tears.

    If they tell you that today is Wednesday, don’t believe it.

    I hope that this doesn’t lead Sean Hannity into tormenting the family again

  22. pat gen question
    what will you suck on after the bitter root has been taken away from you and Biden wins

    here: as a refresh

    Reality :

    Maryland will NOT be joining the #Texaslawsuit. The suit is a cesspool of disproved charges, wild speculation, insupportable arguments and silly gibberish. Joe Biden is the President-Elect.

    Fantasy : ? that’s where you fill in the——— dots ?

  23. Peter…..

    The Pennsylvania case was not lost. The case is still an active case before the supreme court. Part of the case was an immediate injunction to block the certification. The injunction was not granted the case which is about whether or not what the governor and pa court did was constitutional still stands and will go forward no matter who is sworn in on the 20th.

    Not getting the injunction to block certification is a blow, but it has nothing to do with the whether or not the case is won or lost. There still will be a hearing in the Supreme Court to decide the main issue of the case just not before Jan 20th.

  24. Yeah the crackhead was legal and appropriate with those hookers

    As was Trump with his hookers, even the one he paid off in 2016 with campaign funds?

  25. he didn’t pay with his dead brothers stolen cards though did he?

    I may not approve of prostitution, but some people do the problem comes from the dead brothers cards, but hey if your ok with larceny as well as hooking thats your level of morality not mine.

    I can leave sin to god to judge, but criminal behavior is the jurisdiction of man.

  26. he didn’t pay with his dead brothers stolen cards though did he?

    No, he didn’t need to because he had campaign funds and a crooked lawyer (now in jail and singing like a canary) to bail him out. Trump has described him as a rat, just like any Don would.

    I wonder when Putin will release that Moscow hotel tape. Now that Trump’s a washed-up loser there doesn’t seem to be much point holding on to it. Might as well have a laugh to cheer the Russian people up and distract attention from the pandemic.

  27. I wonder when Putin will release that Moscow hotel tape.

    quoting Hillary’s british spy…. lol

  28. Trump is about to complete his single term without saying anything bad about Putin in four years and he took Putin’s side against his own security guys in his treasonous summit in Iceland. And Putin has still not acknowledged Biden as POTUS-elect. Most people would find that pretty weird, but a lot of it can probably be explained by the amount of debt Trump owes to Russki banks. And a few property deals where Putin cronies laundered huge amounts of stolen Russki loot to buy Trump US assets at inflated values and relieve his financial diffs.

    I think the word is corruption.

  29. No, the U.S. Supreme Court Has Not Agreed to Hear Texas’ Lawsuit Challenging Swing State Election Results

    The complaint is riddled with ridiculous attempts to substitute funny math for actual analysis – as in its allegation that the ‘probability of former Vice President Biden winning the popular vote in the four Defendant States . . . independently given President Trump’s early lead in those States as of 3 a.m. on November 4, 2020, is less than one in a quadrillion,’ and that the odds of ‘that event happening [in all four States collectively] decrease to less than one in a quadrillion to the fourth power.’ Balderdash!

    Beyond that, the complaint is filled with internal legal errors that undermine any theory it might otherwise be understood to advance. For instance, the complaint repeatedly treats 3 U.S.C. §7, governing the meeting of electors on the first Monday after the second Wednesday in December ‘following their appointment’ (December 14, this year) as though it provided ‘that presidential electors be appointed on December 14, 2020.’ I could go on indefinitely about how ridiculous the complaint is and how meritless and unthinkable is its requested remedy, but I’ll stop here.

  30. Sean Hannity was banging on this without end tonight.

    One of his guests on it to speak of the legalities was Lara Trump, Eric’s wife, an expert on legal matters 🙂

    I didn’t hear him speak much about the increasing deaths from Covid 19. That’s not of interest to Trump TV

  31. It is What it is.

    That’s why 80mill voted your hapless fool of a criminal president out

    The United States records more than 3,000 deaths in the latest 24-hour period – the highest total in a single day anywhere in the world

    100 Benghazi threads on 4 citizens tragically dead
    No serious threads on Covid-19

    That’s why this site is a comedy central hub

  32. He didn’t pay with his dead brothers stolen cards though did he?

    I wonder what’s worse? Allegedly paying money from a dead man’s account or paying a hooker from campaign funds?

    (Yeah, yeah we know the drill. Accountancy mistake etc)

  33. It’s a campaign expense unless you’re Bill Clinton he got it without paying and without asking permission.

    Poor Hunter is an addict, he’s probably an addict for some very good reasons. This statement by Hunter came out through the Biden Transition Team. Our boy Hunter is being investigated for impropriety with foreign investments, and they admit it’s Hunter’s Laptop after his Father stood on national tv and accused Trump of spreading Russian lies in a debate that they had Hunters Laptop and he was doing business with the chinese military.

    Biden pissed down your back, told you it was raining and you bought it hook line and sinker. This announcement confirms it was piss and you’re all covered in it…. lol maroooons

  34. maybe Biden will pardon HUnter like Trump will do to his whole family
    Ivanka has already met with prosecutors, Kushner is up for dodgy deals
    The brothers Eric and Don Jr similar charges to follow

  35. Paying off hookers is a campaign expense? Maybe in Trump world.

    You were told yesterday that the Hunter investigation began in 2019 so unless you have developed time travel powers it’s FA to do with Hunter’s mysterious disappearing laptop. Keep peddling the untruth if you wish, though.

  36. Its funny how the supposed source of Hunter’s laptop left town with no forwarding address

  37. I highly recommend everybody watch this video.

    This really sums up Trump’s attitude to coronavirus perfectly.
