Welcome to Day + 23. Today, we will celebrate Thanksgiving. The very first Thanksgiving came amid a fierce winter. This Thanksgiving comes amid a historic pandemic that has deeply impacted our community, our country, and our world, and an election with unprecedented procedural abuse and fraud. We can give thanks that some seek to uphold our American Constitution, the Rule of Law, and American fairness. The outcome of these efforts is unclear, and we can only pray for an equitable outcome.
NOTE: I received a 104-page complaint, purportedly from Sydney Powell and others, that purports to lay out a scenario that deals with, among other constitutional issues, is voting system fraud involving Dominion Voting Systems. This PDF does not include a case number, no court filing information, and a material spelling error in the header which makes me suspicious of the document. Imagine submitting a document to the court with the header, "IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICCT COURT, NORTHERN DISTRCOICT OF GEORGIA, ATLANTA DIVISION?" After the filing clerk stopped laughing, I think you would be so embarrassed as to withdraw the filing. So I will not be commenting on this particular filing at this time. The source of this document was investigative reporter John Solomon's Just The News Site.
The Pennsylvania Complaint (Excerpts) …
Basically, the new filing alleges Act 77, the statute which allows for voting by mail, violates Pennsylvania’s Constitution and is implemented illegally.
IN THE COMMONWEALTH COURT OF PENNSYLVANIA
The Honorable Mike Kelly, Sean Parnell, Thomas A. Frank, Nancy Kierzek, Derek Magee, Robin Sauter, Michael Kincaid, and Wanda Logan, Petitioners
Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Pennsylvania General Assembly, Honorable Thomas W. Wolf, Kathy Boockvar, Respondents
COMPLAINT FOR DECLARATORY AND INJUNCTIVE RELIEF
1. This is an action seeking a declaration that the universal mail-in ballot provisions of a law called Act 77 (Act of October 31, 2019, P.L. 552, No. 77 ("Act 77''); see also 25 Pa.Stat.§§ 3146.6(c), 3150.16(c)) are unconstitutional and an injunction prohibiting certification of the results of the November 3, 2020 election in Pennsylvania and/or requiring any such certification to be rescinded, and for other appropriate relief. Act 77 is the most expansive and fundamental change to the Pennsylvania voting code, implemented illegally, to date. Under the Act, and the mail-in ballot scheme it implements, any and all qualified electors are eligible to vote by mail, and no justification needs to be provided. As with prior historical attempts to illegally expand mail-in voting by statute, which have been struck down going as far back as the Military Absentee Ballot Act of 1839, Act 77 is another illegal attempt to override the limitations on absentee voting prescribed in the Pennsylvania Constitution, without first following the necessary procedure to amend the constitution to allow for the expansion.
WHEREFORE, Plaintiffs respectfully request that this Honorable Court enter an order, declaration, and/or injunction that prohibits Defendants from certifying the results of the General Elections which include mail-in ballots which Defendants improperly permitted on a statewide basis; prohibits Defendants from certifying the results of the General Elections which include the tabulation of unauthorized votes, including mail-in ballots which did not meet the Constitutional requirements and, instead, compels Defendants to certify the results of the election based solely on the legal votes or, alternatively, directs that the Pennsylvania General Assembly choose Pennsylvania's electors; award Plaintiffs' reasonable costs and expenses of this action, including attorneys' fees and costs; and provide such other and further legal and equitable relief as this Court deems just and proper.

Pennsylvania’s Notice of Appeal to the Supreme Court (Excerpts)…
NOTICE OF APPEAL
Notice is hereby given that Respondent Kathy Boockvar, in her official capacity as Secretary of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania; Respondent the Honorable Thomas W. Wolf, in his official capacity as Governor of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania; and Respondent the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania (“Respondents”) appeal to the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania from the November 25, 2020 Order enjoining Respondents from taking “further action to perfect the certification of the results of the 2020 General Election … for the offices of President and Vice President of the United States of America” and from certifying “any of the other results of the Election.” This Order, which is attached as Exhibit A, has been entered on the docket as evidenced by the copy of the docket entry attached as Exhibit B. There is no verbatim record of the proceedings relating to Petitioners’ Motion for Emergency/Special Prohibitory Injunction. A Jurisdictional Statement is being filed and served concurrently with this Notice of Appeal.
Since the Pennsylvania Secretary of State hastily certified the election results, and Governor signed the certificate of ascertainment, in favor of presumptive President-elect Joseph R. Biden, it is unknown what effect the Judge’s order may have other than providing a path to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court and then to the United States Supreme Court. Let us not forget that it was Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts, who is responsible for much of this mess as he refused to hear a legitimate case involving procedural irregularities in Pennsylvania. The Governor’s “certificate of ascertainment” has allegedly been sent to the national archivist in Washington.
It remains to be seen if the evidence is so compelling as to justify the decertification of the results and/or eliminating defective or improperly cast ballots.
More good news in Georgia...
Following District Judge Steven D. Grimberg's denial of Lin Wood's original Verified Complaint for Declaratory and Injunctive Relief (subsequently amended) for an emergency motion injunction to delay certification of the Georgia voting results, Wood stated that he would appeal the case to the Eleventh Circuit court.
"Appellant further submits that the procedures enacted by the Secretary of State and the State Board of Elections relate to the enormous quantity of mail-in-ballots cast in Georgia pursuant to the unlawful 'Consent Decree,' which precludes ascertainment of these ballots’ compliance with the detailed requirements for demonstrating the authenticity of such votes and the eligibility of those purportedly casting such ballots to vote in Georgia. Appellant’s vote was made more difficult that the votes of others who were not required to present identification or were struggling with signature verification."
And, the 11th Circuit granted Lin Wood's Emergency Motion for Expedited Review of his lawsuit challenging the validity of Georgia election procedures. (USCA: 20-14418-RR, 11/25/2020)
And yet another lawsuit was filed by Phillip Kline, not associated by Sidney Powell) which was based on an expert analysis of government data showing that the total number of illegal votes counted and legal votes not counted is greater than 200,000 — vastly exceeding the 12,670-vote margin in the presidential election contest.
No promises of anything other than continuing court proceedings.
Constitutional conservatives have one more thing to be thankful for today.
Have a happy and safe Thanksgiving.
