Pennsylvania Supreme Court REJECTS Trump Claim That GOP Lacked Access

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court has rejected the Trump campaign’s claim that the GOP was denied access to oversee the Philadelphia vote count.

The court’s decision was 5-2 which raises eyebrows because the GOP either lacked access or they didn’t. The justices here seemed to disagree.

According to The Philadelphia Inquirer:

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled Tuesday that Republican monitors observing vote counting in Philadelphia were given sufficient access under state law to view the proceedings.

In a 5-2 decision, the court overturned a lower court decision that ordered monitors with President Donald Trump’s campaign be allowed within six feet of tables where ballots were being tallied.

In its opinion, the Supreme Court found that the Philadelphia Board of Elections complied with requirements for observer access from the moment the first votes were counted.

“We conclude the board did not act contrary to the law in fashioning its regulations governing the positioning of candidate representatives,” Justice Debra Todd wrote for the majority. “Critically, we find the board’s regulations … were reasonable.”

The two justices who dissented were Chief Justice Thomas Saylor and Justice Sallie Updyke Mundy.

These are judicial turds that fell from the backside of the Muslim usurper. The Supreme Court will need to step in or Americans will have to take things into their own hands which could get messy.

Some say the counting of ballots and conducting of elections is a state matter. I don’t know if that is true. Does the Supreme Court have a say in this part of how states conduct themselves? I’d like to know.

Vegas Casinos have a battery of cameras which cover every angle at each machine or table. They have a battery of monitors with highly qualified folks watch for cheating. They then call a floor security guard to arrest the cheaters. Our voting precincts could have the same security that they have. And no sending our results to Germany or any other foreign country.

No biggie. The best hope for a positive outcome is to appeal the entire election to the SCOTUS and hope the SCOTUS will either require a complete recount with all questionable ballots including mail-ins thrown out OR rule the election was so corrupted that it is all thrown out and sent to congress to determine the outcome. Should that happen, based on the 12th Amendment, it is likely that President Trump will prevail. But relying on swing state courts to do the right thing will not work in the end, because they won’t.

Corrupt is right! Every year on the ballot when it ask to retain judges. I elect No. Turn them out, keep them moving. Because once they get in to the judge roll they get bought paid kick backs. We need new judge turn around any chance. Keep them in and out roating so they dont get comfortable

How long were the observers allowed to approach to 6 feet? Why not be allowed to stand near to see the votes. What can one see at 6 feet? Two conservative judges are to be commended. Appeal to the Supreme Court President Trump!

Yep that’s is definitely a damocraps trade mark . lie cheat steal. I still think that that woman lawyer TRUMP has should now take all election ballots throw them out as long as she has the proof she said she has and just turn tbe presidentcy over to TRUMP and arrest all the rest for tampering with election fraud covering it up and make to where none of them can ever hold a office again never. That would send a clear loud message to all RHAT try’s to infer .

now every state has laws as to where Poll Watchers or other observers are stationed, now both parties are at the same distance distance so no discrimination is shown in any way. All poll workers who work where you vote and where the votes are counted are of all political parties, now if some states most counters must be of equal numbers of all parties, so why is it that the people working the places have made no such comment.

Pa SC, like FL SC in 2000, is stacked with DIMMs who wouldn’t know a constitution if it hit them in the face. The LAW says that both parties MUST have observers present. You can’t “observe” from 30 feet away or totally outside the building!

Now presenting a case in court in every case you have to have hard evidence, of the charges you are presenting to the court. Now when a 5 to 2 decision is based in favor that you agree with it is fine, but if it disagrees with you then the decision is wrong.

Timing is crucial. The timing of situations and events raise the probability of humans directing it. Not random. Organized. Planned. Made to happen. Trump knows this. He is allowing this exposure for the American people and the world to see just how controlled our world really is by these Left globalist psychopaths. In the past those who exposed these people were suicided or had their planes go down or were destroyed in other ways. Ultimately this is about good and evil, light vs dark. Almighty God Is on the throne of power, not Satan, the globalist’s master. People try to keep God out of politics, but just where do you think justice comes from? If it weren’t for God, we’d be in the NWO already. Give God thanks and praise for His help in all Trump and patriots do! God is in charge of the timeline and this is our time, not theirs.

The missed point is pallets of blank cardboard boxes being added to the counting area, unsecured and with NO witnesses, in direct violation of regulations on chain of custody and origin of each ballot. Counting was halted overnight, and all in a sudden all the Democrat counters were counting and shuffling in unverified ballots before ANY legal observers were allowed in, Bidden vote counts jump up 100,000 in one instant, with no other vote counts changing within 15 minutes? Either the count is covering the whole ballot, or that many ballots contained only one vote, in one race; with NO comparable validated ballot being voted similarly…. Fraud at face value. Lack of observer access as required by law. Democrats have been doing the same thing in most major cities for over 50 years. Throw the curtains and barracades up, and fill the count with preprinted & voted ballots. How many Presidential votes are now counted in excess of the number of voters turning in validated ballots:
Early in person and absentee ballots,
Election day in person votes,
Mailed in ballots arriving prior to the close of polls on election day,
Overseas absentee votes, diplomats and military, received within allotted time frames & post marked in overseas location prior to cut off for mailing? (Always 5 to 7 days prior to election day depending on secure logistics timing back to the States)
Any others are not validly voted ballots. Reason WI and MI will need to do a total recount with dual or more verification of each ballot ensuring every ballot was marked as validly cast. And review of every voting machine tape which must match with the electronic tally transmitted.

1,000’s of machines failed post election accuracy and functioning.

Illinois machines failed upon set-up and verification!! All were programmed to highlight the Democrat candidate and Government preferred vote on Judges and Referendums;

Any programmer would be fired for programming that causes fraudulent influence of votes, surveys, etc.
Fraudulent voter influence and intimidation, particularly IN the voting machine programming is OK in a national or even local election???

Really — wonder how they know that — From what I’ve read about the use of these mail-in ballots requires allot more oversight. and the video’s don’t support that narrative Also the PA supreme court overstepped its bounds on the duration of qualifying the votes to be counted according to the Constitution the states legislators are give that responsibility -not the courts–
