Will the next to act stand up?

“Republican senator Ben Sasse hails Supreme Court for ‘closing the book on the nonsense’ and slams Donald Trump’s conspiracy theories” (Daily Mail) the headline illustrates the problem: the issue is prejudged and slimed by those suffering TDS (e.g. Democrats, Propaganda Pundits) or fear of what might happen if they get involved (e.g. much of the judiciary). As noted in a column cited yesterday, it’s gaslighting and the use of a false premise.

Another tactic (from Instapundit) “ZOMBIE INITIATIVE: An initiative repealing Washington State’s prohibition on preferential treatment based on race or sex was defeated in 2019. But they’re already gearing up to launch another one.” … “Never give up, never surrender” (Galaxy Quest)

Supreme Court shoots down Texas lawsuit, but it isn’t over yet. CQ Livingston – “This decision has dramatic implications for the presidential election, but unless President Trump concedes, there are still plenty of options available.” … “the best scenario is that this case bought other lawsuits more time to get in front of the Supreme Court without having to worry about the December 14 deadline for selecting electors”

SCOTUS refuses Texas lawsuit for lack of standing. neo – “even issuing no ruling on the legal questions raised in a case, and refusing to give relief – not hearing this case, for example – has consequences. It’s a form of decision. But it’s a passive type of decision that allows people to tell themselves they’re not responsible for what happens. They may indeed be fooling themselves. But passivity can be attractive when faced with something very tough. And this is very tough, because no matter what the Court does, half the country is going to be very very angry indeed.”

Giuliani Says Trump Team ‘Not Finished’ After Supreme Court Defeat. Pam Key – “Giuliani said, “The case wasn’t rejected on the merits, the case was rejected on standing.”

WHAT NOW? The Fight for Our Freedom Continues Despite SCOTUS Ruling on Texas. Joe Hoft – “There are still court cases in nearly every state of concern. Below is our understanding of open cases as of Friday night:”

We Don’t Need SCOTUS to Win. James Arlandson – “The Texas suit, later joined by other states, against Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Georgia, was a nice try, but it was always a long shot. Of course SCOTUS would be reluctant to grab so much power by ordering state legislatures to seat the right electors. Why? Because the power is already in the hands of the legislatures to do this.”

Biden: Lie About Defunding Until After January 5! John Hinderaker – “Biden urges his audience to lie low in talking about the police until the Georgia Senate elections have been decided on January 5” … “Biden’s caution may not be surprising, but his explicit tying of the deception to January 5 would be big news if a Republican did it” … “But don’t worry, Biden says–once the Georgia elections are over, we can come out of the closet:”

Today’s California Energy Embarrassment. Steven Hayward – “In one sentence, today’s brief essentially says, “Without lots of natural gas-fired power, California is screwed.” Of course that’s not the actual language—these are government analysts were talking about. But it’s not hard to read between the lines. Let’s start with the chart:” And a report for the Nevada Governor is looking to eliminate 70% of Nevada’s energy for ‘climate justice.’ That’s cheap natural gas from fracking sacrificed at the alter of ideological paganism.

“Question: What will happen to natural gas “peaking” demand after California closes its last nuclear power plant in a couple years, and supposedly replaces it with wind and solar power? Good times for natural gas I suspect. And the promises of carbon-free electricity by 2035 or 2050 will go poof faster than an Eric Swalwell emission on MSNBC.

The numbers just don’t add up … sounds like a recent election,

Cuomo’s New Ban On Indoor Dining In NYC Is Abject Madness. David Marcus – “On Friday, the governor released that data. It does not show that restaurants are a major driver; it shows they accounted for 1.4 percent of spread. And yet, in a move that defies even the basic tenets of common sense, Emperor Cuomo is closing down indoor dining anyway.” … “This decision is insane. It is also cruel and arbitrary.”

Jupiter and Saturn are converging for a rare “Great Conjunction” on the day of the winter solstice – December 21st. Paul Dorian – “These two planets are actually converging for an even closer encounter in terms of their appearance to us here on Earth – the likes of which haven’t been seen in many, many centuries.”
