The Supreme Court refused to hear the Texas-led case so it seems legal actions have been exhausted.
I know Trump will not concede. What will he do next?
"Allies also suggests that lawmakers are likely to try to challenge the election results when Congress meets to approve the vote tallies on Jan. 6, though those efforts are not expected to succeed"
They can challenge but it requires approval of both branches of Congress to successfully contest, but with the House under Democratic control that appears unlikely.
So, Joseph Biden, Jr. becomes the 46th President of the United States.
Perhaps Trump will do as General Flynn suggested and declare martial law and have the military oversee a new election?
It appears there isn't anything the Republicans won't try to destroy Democracy and America.
I would not be shocked in the least to learn that he is seriously considering declaring martial law.
Sadly, me either. It's clear that there is no length he won't go to try to change the election results.
He claimed all this fraud before the election and before there was any evidence of fraud.
When he couldn't prove fraud, he moved onto simply changing the results through subverting the whole voting process. (the Texas case was not about fraud)
The evolution of this is that he will continue this anti-Democratic behavior. I just wonder if there's any point or any court decision that will convince Republicans that Trump is full of it.
And I'm curious to see if Ken Paxton, who is under investigation (for securities fraud, I think) will get a pardon now. Some have speculated that this was the whole reason for the Texas case.
It appears his cult is all in. Notice they are still claiming that Democracy has failed when it is actually the opposite. The American system has diverted an attack on free and fair elections from a sore loser who has no love of country, only self.
It remains to be seen how far he will go to try to get his way, but at this point, I have little doubt his followers will be right there with him. They have "faith" in him.
Faith: complete trust or confidence in someone or something based on belief rather than proof.
I really wonder what Trump thinks would happen if he was successful overturning the will of the people and somehow stealing the election and remaining in power for four more years.
"(the Texas case was not about fraud)"
Regardless of what it was about, it was one big case of hypocrisy. Remember the Texas slogan: "Don't Mess with Texas"? It was a big case of "do as I say, don't do as I do." It was Big Boy Texas messing around with other states' rights. The court had every right to tell Texas that it "had no standing".
So now the ReTrumplican soreheads are talking about secession. Maybe they will secede and establish a "whole nuther country" where they can have their dictator. Discontent Trump supporters can move there and the United States of America will welcome refugees from the new Trump country into the states if they don't want to live there any longer. Then we can all be happy.
The chair of the Texas Republican Party appeared to float secession after the Supreme Court shot down a lawsuit led by the Lone Star State seeking to overturn the results of the presidential election.
“This decision will have far-reaching ramifications for the future of our constitutional republic," he continued. "Perhaps law-abiding states should bond together and form a Union of states that will abide by the constitution.”
So many sore losers. SMH
Former Houston police captain charged after allegedly attacking man falsely accused of voter fraud
Mark Anthony Aguirre, 63, was charged Tuesday with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, according to the Harris County District Attorney’s Office. The former officer allegedly told police following the incident in October that he was part of a civilian group called “Liberty Center,” who were looking into allegations of voter fraud.
Aguirre allegedly said he conducted “surveillance” on a man for four days under the belief he had 750,000 fraudulent ballots in his truck, according to the district attorney. He allegedly ran his SUV into the back of the man’s truck and forced him to the ground at gunpoint, which was captured on an officer’s body camera. back of the man’s truck and forced him to the ground at gunpoint, which was captured on an officer’s body camera.
A Houston officer saw Aguirre hit the truck while responding to an unrelated car nearby, according to a police statement Tuesday. The officer said they saw Aguirre point a gun at the man and called for backup as the truck was driven away.
Another suspect who has not been identified drove the truck to a nearby parking lot, where Aguirre led police.
The man Aguirre was allegedly targeting was actually an air conditioning technician and his truck was found full of air conditioning parts and tools, the district attorney’s office said.
The district attorney’s office alleges that Aguirre was being paid a total of $266,400 by the Houston-based Liberty Center for God and Country.
Meanwhile, Trump retweets...
@realDonaldTrump is a genuinely good man. He does not really like to fire people. I bet he dislikes putting people in jail, especially “Republicans.”
He gave @BrianKempGA & @GaSecofState every chance to get it right. They refused. They will soon be going to jail.
