One More Court Loss for Team Trump

Yet another SCOTUS rejection.

Team Trump has lost yet another court case in regards to its claims surrounding the 2020 election. The Hill reports: Supreme Court rejects final Trump bid to nullify 2020 election results. This marks over 60 losses and one minor win.

In an unsigned order without noted dissent, the justices declined to take up Trump’s lawsuit alleging Wisconsin election officials violated the Constitution by expanding absentee voting amid the global coronavirus pandemic.

[…]

His lawsuit claimed that policies put in place by the Wisconsin Election Commission to mitigate the spread of the coronavirus — like establishing absentee ballot drop boxes — illegally usurped the state legislature’s sole power over election rules.

So, despite ongoing lies about how the election was stolen and claims that the evidence is clear, no one is able to make anything close to a cogent claim in court.

(But the MyPillow guy is still claiming that he will reveal the evidence that will force the Court to vote 9-0 to overturn the election!)

    When MyPillow becomes Dominion Pillow, will the pillows come with a free Vorta? I could really use a free Vorta.

    I seriously want a Dyson “fan” bad.

    Too damn expensive, but I think I’m gonna do it.

    Vaguely intrigued by the Cube Pillow spiel. Anyone have feedback? I am a side sleeper.

    Apropos of Dr. Seuss:

    But on you will go
    though the weather be foul.
    On you will go
    though your enemies prowl.
    On you will go
    though the Hakken-Kraks howl.

    @CSK:

    You could get your hands on “Clash of the Titans” from 1982-83, featuring the talents of Lawrence Olivier and Harry Hamlin. It features visual effects by Ray Harryhausen, which are mostly animated models. It can’t compete in realism with today’s CGI, but he was really good at it.

    Near the end Zeus orders Poseidon to release the Kraken (those exact word), leaving us with the question of when Norse and Greek Mythologies syncretized.

    I remember that movie mostly because of the stupid mechanical owl.

    @de stijl:

    I remember it because I watched it in Tel Aviv. It was shown in English, with Hebrew and Arabic subtitles.

    Later for some reason my parents got it on VHS. I think I watched it a couple of times. The tapes I gave a real workout to were the original Star Wars trilogy, 2001, and Disney’s Aladdin animation with Robin Williams playing the Genie.

    @de stijl: Haven’t used one, but I am skeptical about the idea that there’s a pillow in the world worth $120 (4 payments of $29.99).

    Amy Barrett has proved to be a colossal disappointment. She had one job! If she had any principles, she’d resign from the bench and go down to Mar-a-Lago to apologize
