BREAKING NEWS: PA JUDGE HALTS VOTE CERTIFICATION PROCESS
In breaking news Wednesday, Pennsylvania Commonwealth Judge Patricia McCullough has ordered state officials not to certify the results of the 2020 election, pending an evidentiary hearing on Friday.
She's not only ordered them to not certify, but also not to take any further steps toward that end. In other words, STOP NOW.
According to the story in THE EPOCH TIMES, this ruling regards a lawsuit brought by “Republican lawmakers and candidates” –- Pennsylvania Rep. Mike Kelly, Republican congressional candidate Sean Parnell, and Pennsylvania House of Representatives candidate Wanda Logan –- against the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Democrat Gov. Tom Wolf, Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar, and the Pennsylvania General Assembly. The lawsuit concerns “Act 77,” a bipartisan bill that in October of 2019 became law and expanded mail-in voting but that plaintiffs say would have required an amendment to Pennsylvania’s state constitution.
Pennsylvania has its votes counted (perhaps I should use quotation marks around “votes” and “counted”), but a number of steps still need to be carried out before the formal certification can be completed. The plaintiffs maintain there's no need to rush through these to certify the results, as Pennsylvania didn’t certify until December 12 in 2016.
Marc Elias, the Perkins Coie attorney who went from state to state in the months before this election, filing lawsuits and persuading officials to (unconstitutionally) loosen up the rules, called this lawsuit “frivolous” and “absolutely shameful.” I’d say that means it’s on the right track.
"It appears that respondents’ actions may have been accelerated in response to the application for emergency relief...in an effort to preclude any remedial action by this court faster than this court was able to evaluate this application for emergency relief and the answers to it,” the plaintiffs wrote.
In other words, it looked as though state officials were pushing ahead even faster so the judge wouldn’t have enough time to figure out what was going on and do anything about it.
Come on, man! That would NEVER happen…
Tuesday, the Dow closed over 30,000 for the first time in history. Again, to clarify for the media: Joe Biden had nothing to do with it, and the stock market isn’t booming because investors think Biden is going to become President. That’s the kind of data you get from liberal economists like Paul Krugman, who announced on the night Trump was elected that markets would “never” recover, and who assured us just last March that we were headed into a “permanent recession.”
FYI: One of my writers told me he opened a little day-trading account shortly after Krugman's warning last spring, and bought only stocks that had taken a big dive in industries that Democrats claimed would never recover. As of Wednesday, he says his stocks are up anywhere from 32% to 70.5% in six months or so. It proves you’ll never go wrong betting that leftists don’t know what they’re talking about. Even ones with a Nobel Prize.
In a Thanksgiving tradition, President Trump “pardoned” the White House turkey, a plump bird named Corn. As usual, his rival, a turkey named Cob, will not end up on a platter but will accompany Corn to live out his days at Gobbler’s Rest at Virginia Tech’s Department of Animal and Poultry Science.
Although that sounds like something parents would tell kids so they wouldn’t know what happened to their pet turkey…
OPERATION WARP SPEED, INDEED
Providing the FDA approves, 6.4 million doses of Pfizer’s COVID-19 (Chinese) coronavirus vaccine will be shipped to the states by mid-December. Forty million doses are expected to be ready by the end of the year. Moderna is also expected to file for an emergency use authorization for its own vaccine within a few weeks.
And just to clarify for the media: this record-smashing accomplishment was completed under Donald Trump, the President they accused of botching the virus response. It was not developed under Joe Biden. He’s the one who wanted to let people keep flying into the US from Wuhan in the middle of a pandemic to prove we aren’t racist. Science!
The Trump team said legislatures in three swing states would hold hearings into campaign irregularities, but some legislators say that came as news to them. Here’s the latest schedule on what’s set to happen when:
The Thomas More Society’s Amistad Project has filed an emergency petition with the Wisconsin Supreme Court, claiming they have identified more than 150,000 potentially fraudulent ballots, more than enough to call into question the validity of the state's election results, in which Biden was declared the winner by only about 20,000 votes.
Walkaway founder Brandon Straka wrote a list of six things that Joe Biden should do if he wants to prove that he’s really serious about unifying America. Interestingly, #5 is “Call for a transparent audit of 2020 election.” What a great idea! Why hasn’t someone suggested that before?...
