|It looks like Pennsylvania is going to flip for Trump before Georgia. |
Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court Judge Patricia McCullough, who ordered Pennsylvania's vote-counting halted, has ruled that a pro-Trump case established a 'likelihood to succeed on the merits' in Pennsylvania and gives the green light to the Pennsylvania State Assembly the go ahead and pick the Presidential electors. This ruling serves as a precedent which Trump's legal team can then use in all his other lawsuits. Also, Biden's loss of Pennsylvania's 20 electoral votes drops him below the required 270 to win ... which ultimately sends the Presidential election to the States who will send representatives to select the President, and Trump wins under that scenario.
The Pennsylvania appellate court judge who issued a temporary injunction Wednesday against the state certifying its 2020 election results released an accompanying opinion Friday explaining her decision.
In the opinion, Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court Judge Patricia McCullough predicted that the plaintiffs in the case will ultimately win the battle they're waging in the Keystone State.
"Petitioners appear to have established a likelihood to succeed on the merits because petitioners have asserted the Constitution does not provide a mechanism for the legislature to allow for expansion of absentee voting without a constitutional amendment," she wrote.
"Petitioners appear to have a viable claim that the mail-in ballot procedures set forth in Act 77 contravene [a provision in the state's Constitution] as the plain language of that constitutional provision is at odds with the mail-in provisions of Act 77."
Signed into law in October of 2019, Act 77 granted state residents the right to request an absentee ballot without providing a legitimate reason.
Prior to the law's implementation, legitimate reasons — or "excuses," as they were called — included being a college student, being someone who works or is vacationing somewhere else, being someone with a physical disability, being someone in the military, or being someone with a religious conflict (i.e., Election Day is the same as their religion's holiday).
The plaintiffs argued that, by tossing out these excuses, the state had simply implemented universal mail-in voting by disguising it as no-excuse absentee voting and claimed the move lacked "constitutional authority."
McCullough appeared to agree.
"Since this presents an issue of law which has already been thoroughly briefed by the parties, this Court can state that Petitioners have a likelihood of success on the merits of its Pennsylvania Constitutional claim," she added.

Memorandum Opinion Filed in... by Jim Hoft
That's presumably good news for President Donald Trump, assuming the ruling sticks, though it should be noted this particular case wasn't filed by his legal team.
This case was instead filed by Pennsylvania Rep. Mike Kelly and seven other petitioners, including Sean Parnell, Thomas A. Frank, Nancy Kierzek, Derek Magee, Robin Sauter, Michael Kincaid and Wanda Logan.
Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf, a Democrat, and several of his top officials have reportedly appealed to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court to toss the case.
"Since the birth of our nation nearly 250 years ago, no court has ever issued an order purporting to interfere with a state's ascertainment of its presidential electors — until today. There is no conceivable justification for the lower court's issuance of such an order in this case," they reportedly wrote in an appeal filed after McCullough's Wednesday ruling.
It seems the opinion that McCullough released Friday may have been written in response to these allegations of there being "no conceivable justification" for her ruling.
"The order purports to interfere with the ongoing process of seating presidential electors and precludes certification of any other result from the 2020 general election. This extraordinary act of judicial overreach threatens to undermine the integrity of Pennsylvania's elections and reduce public confidence in them," the appeal continued.
