It is a truth universally acknowledged that Donald Trump thinks he’s the King of the Universe (at least), because his grandiosity knows no limits.
He thought that if he was able to put three hyper-conservative Justices on the Supreme Court, it would guarantee him anything he wanted.
Didn’t turn out that way.
Because yesterday, the Supreme Court, in a brief, unsigned order, with only a perfunctory comment by (also) hyper-conservative Justices Samuel Alito and Clarence Thomas (a traitor to his race if there ever was one), the Court turned thumbs down on Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton's legally unsustainable attempt to overturn the Will of the People as clearly expressed on November 3: Joe Biden will be our President on January 20.

Paxton didn’t have a leg to stand on because he had absolutely no way of showing the Court that he had standing to sue four other soveriegn states.
But that didn’t stop Trump from ordering Acting Defense Secretary Christopher Miller to go straight to Austin and tell governor Greg Abbott and his Texas Rangers to invade Georgia, one of the four battleground states that Trump won in 2016 but lost in 2020. All four of the States that Paxton sued had already certified the results of the presidential election.
Associate solitary reporter Johanna Jones was on the ground in Atlanta, Georgia’s capital, as the Texas Rangers arrived and immediately stormed governor Brian Kemp’s office and held him hostage.
Pleas by President-Elect Joe Biden to the Rangers to free Kemp (even though he’s a Republican who, more than likely, stole the Georgia gubernatorial election from Stacey Abrams in 2018, when he was Secretary of State) went unheard and unheeded by Trump and Abbott.
In other news that didn’t happen, Trump, furious at Justice Amy Coney Barrett for not siding with him, ordered her to leave her post imediately and go back to South Bend so he could appoint himself to the vacancy created by her departure.
