    Could this finally signal the end of Trump's attempt at stealing the election?

    Supreme Court dismisses Trump allies' challenge to Pennsylvania election

    Attorneys for the state responded Tuesday, accusing challengers of asking the high court to undertake "one of the most dramatic, disruptive invocations of judicial power in the history of the Republic."

    "After waiting over a year to challenge Act 77, and engaging in procedural gamesmanship along the way, they come to this court with unclean hands and ask it to disenfranchise an entire state," they argued. "They make that request without any acknowledgment of the staggering upheaval, turmoil, and acrimony it would unleash.... Their suit is nothing less than an affront to constitutional democracy."

    A single sentence dismissal was definitely the bird. No comments. No dissent.

    I suppose they’re now RINO’s suffering from TDS.

    Naw. It will go on for years.
    We can just add another asterisk to Trump's legacy.

    After four years of Trump acting like a four year old spoiled brat with his name calling and throwing of temper tantrums, one shouldn't have expected him to man up and accept his defeat.

    This presidential election has been long over with. Anyone with a lick of common sense knows that. Good for the SCOTUS not falling for the man-child childish attempt at overturning a valid election. It just a darn shame we haven't had an adult in the White House for the last four years.

    Trump shrugs and keeps on Trumping. Did you see that 10,000+ crowd in Valdosta Ga? Who does that after being declared the supposed loser? Biden would be lucky to draw half that many at his inauguration.

    He would be stupid to draw even that much at his inauguration given there's a lethal pandemic raging last I checked.

    But Biden’s crowd won’t catch Covid-19 at the event. And most, if not all, will still be alive in 30 days.

    Nah! As long as there are gullible supporters who send him money, he'll keep the show going for them.

    According to the COVID-19 Event Risk Assessment Planning Tool, there is a 99% chance that about 100 of them and people they infect will not live to see the New Year as a result of that event.

    It always was a show. Given some of the opinions, the courts didn't find it entertaining though. All those Trump appointments and no quid pro quo? I'm shocked. Does this mean the cult now believes all the courts are in on the steal?

    9-0 impressive right? Are you expecting SCOTUS will embarrass the crackerjack legal team again? Maybe next time they'll add another sentence to the summary dismissal.

    Biden”s ego doesn’t not need a big crowd

    He knows who he is without external feedback

    This was the obvious outcome, you can't tell voters what the options and guidelines are for voting in an election, and then after they've voted under those options/guidelines decide you're going to rule them illegal and void their votes. The state government has a legal obligation to honor the voters, and it's painfully obvious that this whole legal challenge is nothing more than a last ditch effort from sore loser who has a hard time accepting the outcome of the election

    Fake news. The case is still on the docket. SOTUS only denied their request for injunctive relief.
