SCOTUS Rejection Doesn’t Mean The End…HERE is Why

SCOTUS

The Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) in a 7-2 Decision has denied a hearing to Texas on the election integrity of Georgia, Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania.

The SCOTUS Decision

The court with Justices Alito and Thomas dissenting refused to consider the case based upon it’s legal merits but rather denied it due to Texas’ “lack of standing”.

“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.”

President Trump quickly took to Twitter to voice his disappointment, shared by millions of Americans,

Fox News reports that “Justices Samuel Alito and Clarence Thomas said they would have heard the case — without granting other relief, like issuing an injunction on electoral proceedings. They added that they expressed “no view on any other issue.”

So this could allow for other parties and other cases to proceed without prejudice, however, with the Electoral College vote coming Monday and the final deadlines on January 6th for the Joint-Congressional Session and January 20th for inauguration rapidly approaching: time is running out.

Texas’ Claim

The Texas motion revolved around three major points:

“• Non-legislative actors’ purported amendments to
States’ duly enacted election laws, in violation of
the Electors Clause’s vesting State legislatures
with plenary authority regarding the
appointment of presidential electors.
• Intrastate differences in the treatment of voters,
with more favorable allotted to voters – whether
lawful or unlawful – in areas administered by
local government under Democrat control and
with populations with higher ratios of Democrat
voters than other areas of Defendant States.
• The appearance of voting irregularities in the
Defendant States that would be consistent with
the unconstitutional relaxation of ballot-integrity
protections in those States’ election laws.”

Texas Attorney General  Ken Paxton called out violations of the Elector’s clause of Article 1 and the 14th Amendment by the four states. These claims went wholly unaddressed by the Supreme Court’s dismissal. The Texas AG did make an interesting claim though that could open the door for President Trump to seek legal remedy after the Electoral College votes, at which point he could be considered a “damaged” party.

“Plaintiff State respectfully submits that the foregoing types of electoral irregularities exceed the hanging-chad saga of the 2000 election in their degree of departure from both state and federal law. Moreover, these flaws cumulatively preclude knowing who legitimately won the 2020 election and threaten to cloud all future elections.”

The connection to Bush v. Gore is notable because it forms a link as Bush was found to have standing as a candidate in the election despite being past the “safe-harbor date”. This could open a path for President Trump to petition the court in his own right, thus bypassing the cause for dismissal.

History Will Be The True Judge

This case will likely go down in history along side the Dredd Scott Decision, Bush v. Gore and Roe v. Wade for the lasting implications it will have on American politics. As the Supreme Court has shown that there is little recourse they are willing to offer to an election fraught with credible allegations of fraud and massive irregularities.

  1. Okay America, President Trump has tried to do this the easy way, through our court system. Turns out the DOJ is as crooked as the FBI and the CIA! So now, all that’s left is THE HARD WAY!
    It’s time to DEMAND POTUS declare a National Emergency and invoke Article 48! Let the Military take action against these traitors! Enough is enough and it’s TIME TO TAKE BACK OUR COUNTRY! #THISISTREASON

  2. The Supreme Court has abdicated its authority to support and defend the constitution, nothing is left but for the people to enforce that constitution against those that have committed fraud and treason! The blood is on the hands of the Supreme Court!

  3. No matter how this turns out, this election and the resulting litigation will be taught in American law schools for decades, if not centuries, to come.

  4. The United States Supreme Court had better snap out of it’s afternoon siesta and work with the President’s legal staff to come up with a legitimate reason for them to throw out the fraudulent ballots. Time is running out and their continued resistance will directly contribute to the downfall of this country. If they allow George Soros to take over, they will be complicit in the destruction he will bring the country. When the Civil War, which Soros wants arrives and the Supreme Court no longer exists, they will only have themselves to blame for their demise.

  5. Why have a supreme court if they will not look into illegalities, such as voter fraud, in a general election? This means the court has allowed the Democrats to get away with stealing an election. I hope the Democrats do put as many justices on the court as they want because the court does not care if one Political Party cheats in elections. Plus, under John Roberts, the supreme court has been scared to rule against Obama and the Democrats since 2009. The election is more important than any law because one Party is allowed to commit fraud and abuse and the, so called, supreme court is afraid to intervene to correct the many wrongs. Welcome to the United States of China because the Democrat Party is allowed to do whatever they want to in our country. The constitution is dead because the court refused to step forward and get involved in all the voter fraud.

    1. Looks like the moderator is having a problem with me criticizing the court for their lack of candor in allowing the Democrats to get away with fraud.

  6. Great article Matthew. I’m disappointed that seven (7) of the nine (9) Justices decided to throw out any look of the voter fraud, which is overwhelming, and those same Justices decided for ALL voters, and witnesses to ballot tampering, and voter fraud decided to ignore and considered not worthy to hear. There should be term limits on Justices in the SCOTUS. They are nothing more now than a political tool being used.
