Well, that was disappointing. In a 7-2 decision that supposedly involved a rare shouting match between John Roberts and Clarence Thomas, the US Supreme Court has ruled itself to be null and void. The court dismissed the Texas lawsuit against Georgia, Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania late on Friday night. The irony is that by not standing up for the Constitution and securing the integrity of our elections, the court may have voted itself out of existence.
“Court packing” will not be a thing that can happen if Donald Trump secures a second term in the White House. If Joe Biden takes office in January – and I’m still not convinced that he will – the Supreme Court will become just another super-legislative branch, packed to the gills with lifelong Democrat appointments.
The court dismissed the case by using that old judicial bugaboo that allows judges to kick the proverbial can down the road: They claimed that Texas had no standing to sue the other states over how their elections were run. This was the only way that the Supreme Court could effectively weasel out of the case, because it wasn’t going well for the fraud-laden swing states.
On Monday I talked about how childishly and poorly written Pennsylvania’s response to the Texas case was. It amounted to hand-waving and squealing. Michigan’s response was even worse.
Michigan literally admitted in its rebuttal to Texas that it was “at a loss to explain the allegations” that Wayne County had 174,384 ballots cast on election night that cannot be tied back to a registered voter. Not only did they not have a legal argument for why they should have been allowed to cheat in a federal election – they couldn’t even come up with an excuse!
“Sorry, we’re at a loss to explain why we had 174,384 more votes than voters! But ewww! Trump!”
A person who is allegedly a clerk for one of the Justices emailed the Hal Turner radio show over the weekend. That person – and we have no way of verifying whether their story is true or not – alleges that the clerks could hear the Justices screaming at each other all the way down the hall from where they met to discuss Texas v. Pennsylvania.
It was mainly Chief Disappointment John Roberts screaming, who allegedly uttered something to this effect:
“Are you going to be responsible for the rioting if we hear this case? Don’t tell me about Bush v. Gore, we weren’t dealing with riots then! You are forgetting what your role here is Neil, and I don’t want to hear from the two junior justices anymore. I will tell you how you will vote.”
Clarence Thomas, who was one of the two dissenters with Alito, allegedly replied, “This is the end of democracy, John.”
The alleged Supreme Court clerk describes the Justices like this as they left the room after the shouting match:
“When they left the room, Roberts, the Libs and Kavanagh had big smiles. Alito and Thomas were visibly upset. ACB and Gorsuch didn’t seem fazed at all.”
If this story is true (again – no way to verify it), then John Roberts is somehow controlling the votes of all three of President Trump’s new Justices on the court. This is especially disturbing after Americans like us stood up and defended Brett Kavanaugh against the worst sorts of accusations that Kamala Harris and Cory Booker threw at him.
I really believed that Texas had a slam-dunk case here. Their arguments were legally sound. The responses from the Democrat Attorneys General were laughably inept. I don’t know which is worse: The thought that Kavanaugh, Barrett and Gorsuch are being bossed around and told how to vote by John Roberts, or the thought that all three of them were Never-Trumpers all along. Either way, their betrayal and dereliction of duty reveal something that we’ve suspected for some time.
It really is Donald Trump, by himself, defending the Constitution against the entire DC apparatus. The state-level secretaries of state have abdicated their duty. The governors of the states where the fraud took place have abdicated their duty. The state legislatures have abdicated their duty. Congress has abdicated its duty. The Supreme Court has now abdicated its duty.
There is only one person left who can stop the 2020 election from being stolen out from under the American people. I have never bet against that person in the five years since he first walked down the escalator with Melania at his side. And I’m not about to bet against him now, even though it feels as though the hour is late. Have not a spirit of fear, friends. This fight isn’t over yet.
