BREAKING: SCOTUS rejects GOP effort to overturn Pennsylvania election certification

Published

Supreme Court

The U.S. Supreme Court rejected a GOP effort to reject the universal mail-in ballots in Pennsylvania. It was an attempt to block the state’s election results Tuesday, and was a blow to the Republican efforts to overturn the general election.

Republican lawmakers, led by Rep. Mike Kelly, R-Pa., took their election lawsuit to SCOTUS at the end of November, saying the universal mail in ballots used to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic were “unconstitutional, no-excuse absentee voting scheme.” The Republicans argued that the voter ballots cast in this process are not valid and should not be counted.

“The application for injunctive relief presented to Justice Alito and by him referred to the Court is denied,”

SCOTUS rejected the arguments from Republicans, which asked the court to put on hold any certifications, along with Pennsylvania’s certification for President-elect Joe Biden in the lawsuit.

“The application for injunctive relief presented to Justice Alito and by him referred to the Court is denied,” read the court’s order. Kelly’s lawsuit was filed Nov. 21.

This follows a lawsuit filed by Texas’s attorney general contesting the election results in Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin arguing that changes to election procedures made during the pandemic in those states violated federal law. This suit asks the U.S. Supreme Court to block these states from voting in the Electoral College on December 14, but experts say that the lawsuit is a long shot.

Biden’s 60 Minutes Interview Horrifies White House: ‘Does NOT Reflect the OFFICIAL Position’

Uh oh. Someone let President Joe Biden speak by himself again and damage control immediately ensued. President Joe Biden’s “60 Minutes” interview which aired on CBS Sunday was 60 minutes of pure torture for viewers and 60 minutes of pure angst for the White House; everyone but the president himself.

60 Minutes’ official Twitter account publicly called out the President’s answers with an embarrassing statement that his own administration was in disagreement with him:

“President Biden tells 60 Minutes that U.S. men and women would defend Taiwan in the vent of a Chinese invasion. However, after our interview, a White House official told us that U.S. policy on Taiwan has not changed.”

CBS’ Scott Pelley also discussed inflation; an issue drastically affecting the welfare and wellbeing of families. Biden deflected with zero sympathy:

As for President Biden’s son Joe, he is sticking with the narrative that Hunter is the “smartest” person he knows and that “there’s not a single thing that I’ve observed at all that would affect me or the United States relative to my son Hunter.”

Biden also said that while the “proof of the pudding is in the eating” in response to being asked if he is fit to be President, Biden did not commit to saying whether or not he will run for re-election. His “intention” is to run again, “but that’s just intention” he said. “Is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen.”
