Republicans on Thursday asked the Supreme Court to prevent Pennsylvania from certifying election results that state President-elect Joe Biden won the commonwealth.

Hours after their request for appeal was rejected by Pennsylvania’s highest court, Republicans petitioned the U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday asking it to stop the certification of election results that show President-elect Joe Biden had won the key battleground state.

Rep. Mike Kelly and other Republicans filed the petition with the Supreme Court asking it prevent Gov. Tom Wolf and Secretary of the Commonwealth Kathy Boockvar from taking further action to certify the state’s Nov. 3 election results and to nullify those they have already certified.

On Tuesday, the Republicans filed an emergency request with the Supreme Court seeking an appeal of a Saturday dismissal, but then asked the commonwealth’s high court to consider placing a temporary injunction on the certification of results.

The Thursday ask of the Supreme Court follows the highest court in Pennsylvania denying the Republicans’ petition of appeal earlier in the day.

The suit argues Act 77, a law Wolf signed in October of 2019 to expand absentee and mail-in voting, is unconstitutional as it needed to be a constitutional amendment to be legal.

“Act 77 is the Commonwealth’s latest attempt to override through legislation the protective limitations on absentee voting contained in the Pennsylvania Constitution,” the lawsuit states.

“Absent intervention by this Court, Respondents will complete the process of certifying the results of an election, and potentially cast electoral college votes for president and vice president, conducted in a manner, which the Pennsylvania Supreme Court has long rejected as unconstitutional,” it continues.

Biden captured the commonwealth’s 20 all-important electoral votes by securing more than 80,000 ballots cast in his name over President Donald Trump.

Kelly filed a petition against Act 77 on Nov. 21, kicking off the litigious case that has pinged around the state’s court system.

On Saturday, Pennsylvania Supreme Court dismissed the case “with prejudice” due to Kelly’s failure to file their challenge to the law “in a timely manner.”

The petition was filed more than a year after the law was signed into being, following the primary election and as results of the presidential race were becoming apparent.

“Petitioners waited to commence this litigation until days before the county boards of election were required to certify the election results to the Secretary of the Commonwealth,” the court said in its opinion. “Thus, it is beyond cavil that Petitioners failed to act with due diligence in presenting the instant claim.”

Trump has yet to concede defeat in the presidential election and continues to ardently promote widely discredited claims of voter fraud.

“It’s time for the outgoing president and his misguided allies to move on,” he tweeted.

Was it corrosive when Hillary and Democrats cried about the election being stolen by Russia in 2016?

Impeachment blunder: Author of tweet introduced at trial says it was falsified, misinterpreted

Jennifer Lawrence says Rep. Swalwell never called her to check meaning and appears to have altered her tweet with a blue check mark. Pastor backs her up.

The author of a tweet introduced by Democrats at the Senate trial said Thursday her statement “we are bringing the Calvary” was a clear reference to a prayer vigil organized by churchgoers supporting Trump and not a call for military-like violence at the Capitol riot as portrayed by Rep. Eric Swalwell.

Jennifer Lynn Lawrence also said she believes the California Democrat and House impeachment manager falsified her tweet, adding a blue check mark to the version he introduced at the trial suggesting she was a verified Twitter user with more clout when in fact her Twitter account never had a blue check and has never been verified.

“I noticed when they put my tweet on the screen that all of a sudden my tweet had a blue checkmark next to it,” she said during an interview on the John Solomon Reports podcast. “… This way, if he entered that into congressional testimony, it’s a verified account, and it has, it could be applicable in law. Secondly, he wanted to show that my Twitter account had more gravitas than it actually did. He wanted to show that the president was trying to use me to bring in the cavalry.”

A check of Lawrence’s Twitter account shows she does not have a blue check verification. Swalwell’s version of her tweet introduced at the trial did.

Swalwell’s office did not immediately return a call Thursday seeking reaction.

Lawrence, a Christian conservative activist and former Breitbart writer, said her tweet on Jan. 3 carefully chose the religious word “Calvary” — which means a public display of Christ’s crucifixion — as a reference to a prayer vigil they were hosting in Washington, and Swalwell distorted it to convey she was organizing a military cavalry, which is spelled differently and means a military brigade on horses.

“That’s exactly what I meant,” Lawrence told Just the News. “I did not mean we were bringing the cavalry. I wasn’t going to hop on horseback and come riding into D.C. with my horses and my cavalry. … And you know what we did on January 5? We held a prayer event at Freedom Plaza, and we prayed, and we brought Jesus Christ back into Washington, D.C.”

“We would not want violence, we wanted people to come out and peacefully protest,” she added. “… None of us engaged in protest. We were all at the Willard, you know, watching this all play out on television. We had no idea this was going to happen.”

Lawrence said neither Swalwell nor any other House impeachment managers reached out to her to check what her tweet meant.

During Wednesday’s impeachment trial, Swalwell introduced tweets by Lawrence and another woman named Kylie Jane Kremer who both referenced a “Calvary” coming to Washington. Trump retweeted both women. Swalwell used Lawrence’s tweet to suggest it was a call to violent action, equivalent to the differently spelled military calvary.

“What did President Trump say in response to hearing that the cavalry was coming?” Swalwell argued. “‘A great honor,’ he wrote back. This wasn’t just a single tweet. He and his organizers would do this over and over repeatedly.

“On January 3 another supporter tweets. ‘We have been marching all around the country for you, Mr. President. Now we will bring it to DC on January 6, and proudly stand beside you. Thank you for fighting for us,'” Swalwell continued, referring to Lawrence’s specific tweet. “When President Trump reposted her tweet, she wrote back, ‘Best day ever. Thank you for the retweet. It has been an honor to stand up and fight for you in our nation. We will be standing strong on January 6 in DC with you. We are bringing the Calvary, Mr. President.’

“We are bringing the cavalry,” Swalwell added for emphasis. “That was the consistent message. This was not just any old protests. President Trump was inciting something historic. The cavalry was coming.”

Mixing up “Calvary” and “cavalry” is common, according to the Merriam-Webster dictionary.

“On the battlefield, one should send in the cavalry, which is the word for an army component mounted on horseback,” the dictionary clarifies. “The similarly spelled word calvary however, refers to an open air depiction of the crucifixion, or more recently an experience of intense suffering … These two words are often confused.”

Lawrence’s account was backed up by a Christian church pastor, Brian Gibson, who was accompanying Lawrence and other activists on their trip to Washington at the time she wrote the tweet.

“I was sitting on the bus, and I saw Calvary come through,” Gibson told Just the News. “I went back to them, and specifically said, ‘Hey, guys, you spelt Calvary wrong, right?’ This is what I do for a living. I’m a preacher of the gospel. I’m a theology major, so that jumped off the page at me, and words matter, and I want them to be correct. And she said, ‘No pastor, I meant it. We meant to write Calvary like that. Because we were standing up for God, preaching the gospel. We have you ministers here that are going to be praying and leading people to Christ. And so that’s what that’s what we mean.”

Gibson, a religious freedom advocate, said he believes Swalwell badly served the trial, the country and Lawrence by falsely interpreting her meaning without checking,

“We’ve all learned a lesson in due diligence here, giving someone the benefit of the doubt,” he said. “And I think what we’re seeing, John, is a political witch hunt, where people have not crossed their t’s, dotted their i’s. And it’s the wrong way for some of our highest elected officials in the land to behave themselves. So I’m praying for Jennifer, I’m praying for everybody that has been put in harm’s way by this reckless behavior.”

Democrats Have Failed to Tie Capitol Breach to Trump, Says Defense Attorney David Schoen

David Schoen, former President Donald Trump’s defense attorney, told reporters on Thursday that the Democrats, while “making a movie,” have failed to tie the Capitol breach to Trump.

“I think they’re making a movie,” Schoen said. “You know, they haven’t in any way tied it to Donald Trump.”

“And I think it’s offensive. Quite frankly, it’s antithetical [to] the healing process to continue to show the tragedy that happened here that Donald Trump has condemned, and I think it tears at the American people, quite frankly.”

A reporter asked the attorney why they broke from the trial to do a live shot.

“It’s more of the same thing. They’re showing the same repetitive videos. [Making] points that don’t exist.”

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) told Fox on Wednesday that although the Democrats highlighted Trump’s “fight like hell” remark numerous times, they obviated completely another section of Trump’s speech where he told protestors to be peaceful.

“Peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard,” Trump said on Jan 6.

“The one line from the president’s speech that wasn’t in the Democrats’ video is the line that’s most important, and that’s where the president said, ‘Peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard,’” Jordan said.

Another lawyer representing Trump in the impeachment trial, Bruce Castor, said House Democrats hadn’t presented any new information in the nearly eight-hour session on Wednesday.

“Yesterday, we said we didn’t dispute that the breach of the capital is a terrible thing, and that mob violence is something that President Trump abhors. So we didn’t learn anything today we didn’t already know, it’s a matter of fact. I wonder why we sat through eight hours of videos that are under dispute,” Bruce Castor told reporters as he walked to his car after the session ended.

Although new footage was presented during the trial, no new evidence of the alleged incitement was presented.

Castor said that the defense team won’t make any adjustments to the president’s defense based on what was presented Wednesday.

“I don’t know what the public has seen and I don’t think the Democrats revealed anything the public hasn’t seen from a different angle; I think it was all angles,” he said.
