how is that hard to fathom?So they're NOT losing on purpose, but when they DO lose it will enable them to go fight it all over again In the Supreme Court
already posted, your point?Can I draw your attention to the (Republican) Senator's description of the PA Supreme Court judge (who just ruled against Trump)?

almost as if you haven't seen it being done over and over again right here in South Africa where things are ultimately only settled in the ConCourt ...
Always by their own failingsI think it's so very intriguing. And entertaining, in a dark sort of way. It's like some sort of mass delusion thing going on, and we're watch it happen live .
It's weird in a way, from being very anti Trump 4 weeks ago, at this stage I'm actually warming to the fact that he should steal this one by some nefarious method. Because 4 years later (if the country still stands), that rabbit hole that these guys are in would have been irretrievably embedded.
Empires rise and fall, and often by their own failings. These are huge events. Am unlikely to be able to see one fall during my lifetime, and didn't really expect to see one, yet one is playing out before me of its own accord
You have to understand... it like somehow a lot of religious people try and push for the end of the world....a certain mischievous aspect of my character almost wants to nudge this further just so I can watch.

I haven't made any claim that all republicans (whether senators or judges) support Trump's continued fight, a fair number of them are merely political animals looking out for themselves and will say anything to help ensure their own survival in the next administration
what I said was they, the republicans who have not given up, believe the supreme court is stacked in their favour ... well either that or they believe the supreme court is the only one likely to truly uphold the constitution and they believe they have a case that should be heard by it
and just to be clear, I'm of course talking about the US Supreme Court, not any state's supreme court
you do realize the appeals process effectively escalates to higher courts as it plays out right?So the supreme court is going to waste their time on frivolous BS that has been thrown out of dozens of courts already? Dream on.
What's their second win?BREAKING: Pennsylvania federal court DISMISSES Trump lawsuit WITH PREJUDICE--meaning Trump cannot refile it. A total victory for the voters of Pennsylvania. Trump and his allies are now 2-34 in post election litigation.

the simple fact that a lower court has ruled one way doesn't rule out a higher court, in fact it is a prerequisite
but hey, you won't have to wait long to see if anything is argued in front of the supreme court, if it doesn't happen before the electoral college votes there won't be any point anymore imo
I speculate that turdites are banking on 4 justices being conservatives and hence hoping for 4 rubber stamps.Yeah but 4 out of 9 supreme court justices have to vote yes to accept a case before the court. Why would a supreme court justice (never mind 4 of them) vote to hear an embarrassing train wreck of a case like the one Giuliani is presenting? I can only think of one reason anyone would vote yes to that; "For the LOLs.", though I seriously doubt that any supreme court justice would vote to accept a case just for entertainment value.

Even then they still have to do their job, meaning they have to argue the case within the confines of the law. And then they still need a majority vote.I speculate that turdites are banking on 4 justices being conservatives and hence hoping for 4 rubber stamps.
