Federal judge tosses Trump suit over Pennsylvania election results
[ Editor’s Note: Finally, the gavel comes down on the Trump-Giuliani fiasco to throw over the Pennsylvania vote. The judge did not mince words. He supported VT’s position that “The Steal” was not an attempt by the Democrats to steal the election, but by the Republicans.
We expected this ruling to be coming after Rudy’s court appearance, where he went on and on about the national threat to steal the election, but when he was asked specifically what frauds was he alleging, Rudy replied that it was “not a fraud case”.
To say otherwise would have put his law license at risk, which is not something that one would want to do when you can hire yourself out as a legal clown for $20,000 a day.
Rudy billed $100 grand plus this week, money he will be getting from Republican donors that were dumb as rocks or did not mind getting fleeced by the infamous pretend-a-lawyer.
Those Republicans in Congress who defended the Trump regime’s attempt to disenfranchise voters as “his right” will now have to wear that hair shirt. Republican election top officials in both Pennsylvania and Georgia, and their families, are now under special police protection.
This attempted ‘Trump Steal’ could only happen under an Attorney General like William Barr, because the perpetrators feared no conspiracy charge risks.
Biden is going to face a major decision that he might not have expected. If he allows this vast conspiracy to throw the election go unaddressed, evidenced by case after case being thrown out based on no evidence, he will be signalling that it’s OK for this to be repeated.
That, coupled with the possibility of Biden wanting to pass on having a special prosecutor to deal with Trump’s alleged crimes while in office because he does not want that attention diversion, leaves us open to his tacit approval for more rounds of such abuse in the future.

A federal judge has tossed out a lawsuit President Donald Trump’s campaign brought seeking to block the certification of the presidential election results in Pennsylvania.
The judge’s withering opinion dismissing the case said the suit, which Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani turned up to argue in a small Pennsylvania city this week, was both legally flawed and lacking in evidence.
“This Court has been presented with strained legal arguments without merit and speculative accusations, unpled in the operative complaint and unsupported by evidence,” U.S. District Court Judge Matthew Brann wrote.
“In the United States of America, this cannot justify the disenfranchisement of a single voter, let alone all the voters of its sixth most populated state. Our people, laws, and institutions demand more.”
