    Hollywood stars around the country are reacting to President Trump's latest legal defeat in his campaign's fight against the 2020 presidential election results. The Supreme Court on Friday declined to hear a case in Texas that would have essentially nullified election results in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Georgia and Wisconsin. “The State of Texas’s motion for leave to file a bill of complaint is denied for lack of standing under Article III of the Constitution,” the Supreme Court’s order reads. “Texas has not demonstrated a judicially cognizable interest in the manner in which another State conducts its elections. All other pending motions are dismissed as moot.” Many stars reacted to the court's ruling on Friday and Saturday with gleeful remarks, but some pro-Trump celebs still stood behind the president.  SUPREME COURT DECLINES TO HEAR TRUMP-SUPPORTED TEXAS CASE OVER ELECTION RESULTS IN FOUR OTHER STATES Alyssa Milano was among the celebrities who supported the Supreme Court's ruling on Friday over the...

    The Republican Party in Nevada vowed to appeal the Friday decision by Judge James Russell, dismissing claims of widespread voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election made by Trump’s legal team. Trump’s campaign attorney Jesse Binnall presented claims of voter fraud, alleging 42,284 votes were counted twice; roughly 20,000 voters were found to have voted without a Nevada mailing address; 2,468 voters had changed their address to another state; and a supposed 1,506 votes were cast by deceased individuals. Russell gave the Trump campaign until 10 a.m. Friday to submit evidence supporting its claims, saying he would not make a decision until he was able to review the evidence. The Nevada judge then announced Friday afternoon that he was dismissing the case, saying the campaign failed to provide evidence to validate their claims. “Contestants did not prove under any standard of proof that any illegal votes were cast and counted, or legal votes...

            by Christen Smith  A federal judge in Pennsylvania dismissed the president’s “meritless” election fraud lawsuit on Friday, leaving the door open for an appeal before the U.S. Supreme Court. Third U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Stephanos Bibas said arguments made by Rudy Giuliani, the president’s personal lawyer, that fraudulent mail-in ballots in Philadelphia tipped the scales for former Vice President Joe Biden were unsubstantiated. “Free, fair elections are the lifeblood of our democracy. Charges of unfairness are serious,” he wrote Friday. “But calling an election unfair does not make it so. Charges require specific allegations and then proof. We have neither here.” Trump’s legal team wanted millions of votes invalidated after it claimed that some of Pennsylvania’s 67 counties allowed residents to “cure” ballots with defects that would otherwise be uncountable. The state’s election law doesn’t spell out such a process, leading to an...

    MACON, Ga. (AP) — A Georgia bar where a fight and subsequent shooting left one woman dead and seven others injured has lost its liquor license — at least for now. The Bibb County Sheriff’s Office on Friday temporarily suspended the alcohol permit for The Thirsty Turtle in downtown Macon, less than 24 hours after a drive-by shooting happened outside the bar Friday morning. According to the revocation letter dated Friday, the move suspends alcohol sales at the bar for up to 90 days. In that time, the sheriff’s office will review the bar’s operations “We are naturally very disappointed with the sheriff’s decision to close our establishment. We have no doubt that once all the facts are assembled and the available evidence has been examined by clearer heads, it will be determined that the Thirsty Turtle had no part in the atrocities that were perpetrated against the people of...
    MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Milwaukee County completed its recount of presidential ballots Friday, finding only small changes in vote totals for one of the two Wisconsin counties recounting ballots, but President Donald Trump’s attorneys appear ready for a legal challenge seeking to toss tens of thousands of ballots. President-elect Joe Biden’s lead increased by 132 votes after county election officials recounted over 450,000 votes. Biden, a Democrat, won the state by nearly 20,600 votes, and his margin in Milwaukee and Dane counties was about 2-to-1. Trump paid to have a recount in both those counties, which have large numbers of Democrat voters. As of Friday morning, Trump had gained 68 votes over Biden in Dane County, but election officials there do not expect to finish until Sunday. The Milwaukee County vote totals increased for both candidates after election officials found several hundred ballots earlier this week. Claire Woodall-Vogg, the chief...

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Minnesota health officials reported 101 more COVID deaths Friday, the most in a day since the pandemic began. “The numbers were staggering today,” said Helen Strike, the president of both Regina Hospital and River Falls Area Hospital in the Allina Health system. Dr. Mark Sannes, an infectious disease physician at Park Nicollet Health Services, says it’s been shown that high hospitalization and death tolls usually come a couple weeks after high numbers of cases were reported. “Unfortunately, I think we expected to see the rise in deaths based upon what the month of November has brought us with numbers of new cases,” he said. Therefore, cases can be called a “lagging indicator.” Sannes says Minnesota should brace for more jarringly high death reports in the coming days. By the same token, it’ll take some weeks to know the impact, if any, of Thanksgiving gathering and travel. “We saw...
