The Supreme Court Friday rejected the state of Texas’s motion to leave challenging the constitutionality of Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s wins in the key swing states of Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan, and Wisconsin.
“The State of Texas’s motion for leave to file a bill of complaint is denied for lack of standing under Article III of the Constitution. Texas has not demonstrated a judicially cognizable interest in the manner in which another State conducts its elections. All other pending motions are dismissed as moot,” the order reads.
Only two justices, Samuel Alito and Clarence Thomas, said they would have allowed the case to be filed with the court on technical grounds but emphasized they would grant no other relief.
“I would therefore grant the motion to file the bill of complaint but would not grant other relief, and I express no view on any other issue,” a statement from Alito read.
Monday night, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton filed the “Bill of Complaint,” which was not seeking to overturn the election but rather seeking a mandate that states comply with the Constitution. “Plaintiff State does not ask this Court to decide who won the election; they only ask that the Court enjoin the clear violations of the Electors Clause of the Constitution,” the state argued.
The Electoral College will meet to vote on Dec. 14, officially making Biden president-elect of the United States.

So what now?
We will pray and fight but stopping the steal depends on President Trump. Will he fight on? Will he drop something big?
There are still court cases in nearly every state of concern. Below is our understanding of open cases as of Friday night:
In Pennsylvania Rudy has a case he plans to take to the US Supreme Court. The couple congressmen from Pennsylvania still have a case at the US Supreme Court where they argue that how absentee ballots were processed in the state was unconstitutional.
In Michigan an Obama judge threw out Sidney Powell’s case claiming massive corruption in the election process in the state. The judge must think carting tens of thousands of ballots into a counting area with no Republicans present is entirely fine. Powell has suggested she will forward this to the US Supreme Court.
In Georgia Lin Wood has a case now at the Supreme Court. Sidney Powell has a case which was thrown out which she plans to bring to the Supreme Court. President Trump has filed an emergency petition with the Supreme Court in Georgia.
In Arizona the RNC and Sidney Powell both have cases they are sending to the Supreme Court.
In Wisconsin President Trump has a case in progress with the Wisconsin Elections Commission.
In Nevada its Supreme Court dismissed President Trump’s election appeal. We are not sure if this is going on to the US Supreme Court or not.
