Yesterday, in a rather astonishing moment for a major media show, Maria Bartiromo made the following statement:
An intel source told me President Trump did, in fact, win the election. He says that it is up to the Supreme Court to hear suits from other cases across the country to stop the clock. This follows the high court’s refusal to hear the lawsuit from Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton.
It's not often in life that you get repeated chances to get something right, once you've screwed up big time. I'm pretty much on board with Robert Lopez (Will America Split? History Says ‘Yes’):
The curious case of Texas v. Commonwealth of Pennsylvania was a short-lived but portentous controversy. Forty percent of the states joined forces to challenge the presidential election results maintained by roughly another 40 percent of states, with roughly 20 percent of states caught somewhere in the middle. The Supreme Court punted the case.
The Supreme Court seems to have made peace with its own irrelevance vis-à-vis the irremediable schism between two halves of the country.
Nevertheless, the SCOTUS--courtesy of the indefatigable Sidney Powell--is getting yet another chance to take a serious stab at fixing our broken constitutional order (h/t TGP):
It contains the forensic audit done in Michigan that proves systemic voter fraud occurred through the Dominion Voting System tabulation. It also has proof of at least 200,000 FRAUDULANT VOTES casted in the election.— CulturalHusbandry (@APhilosophae) December 17, 2020
Am I holding my breath? Of course not.
UPDATE: Looks like the SCOTUS is gonna take a pass on more chances to get it right:
