If you just looked at the votes on how the last few Supreme Court decisions have turned out, would you even be able to tell that Ruth Bader Ginsburg had died and been replaced? Good grief, the modern Supreme Court has turned out to be a gigantic, disappointing, communist failure. They’ve been handing down 6-3 decision after 6-3 decision against Donald Trump, the US Constitution and the American people. The biggest disappointments on the court have turned out to be Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett.
The court threw out multiple lawsuits from Donald Trump and other plaintiffs, challenging all of the states in which unelected bureaucrats changed state election laws in clear violation of the US Constitution. The court ruled 6-3 that these cases were “moot” because Donald Trump had “conceded the election” to Joe Biden.
Huh? When did that happen? Did I miss something again? Does anyone have a video of Donald Trump conceding the election to Joe Biden?
Pennsylvania changed its election laws in the middle of election season, after early voting had started. Then, they changed their rules again after the polls closed on election night, when they saw Donald Trump’s incredible margin of victory over Joe Biden. The Pennsylvania Secretary of State, who has since resigned in shame, changed the rules to allow three additional days for mail-in ballots to be accepted.
Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito and Neil Gorsuch were the only three Supreme Court Justices who thought that maybe it’s a bad idea for states to wait until after an election contest is over and then change the rules. Maybe… perhaps… just possibly it’s not a bright idea for states to allow the unelected Deputy Assistant Undersecretary of the Department of Bubblegum and Agriculture to change election rules, after the election is OVER?!
Here’s what Justice Thomas wrote in the dissent:
“One wonders what this Court waits for. We failed to settle this dispute before the election, and thus provide clear rules. Now we again fail to provide clear rules for future elections. The decision to leave election law hidden beneath a shroud of doubt is baffling. By doing nothing, we invite further confusion and erosion of voter confidence. Our fellow citizens deserve better and expect more of us. I respectfully dissent.”
Thomas also wrote:
“These cases provide us with an ideal opportunity to address just what authority nonlegislative officials have to set election rules, and to do so well before the next election cycle. The refusal to do so is inexplicable.”
You know what else is inexplicable? The way that Amy Coney Barrett and Brett Kavanaugh have been stabbing Americans in the back.
Brett Kavanaugh’s Senate hearing was the most vicious confirmation battle in US history. Senator Kamala Harris accused Brett Kavanaugh of gang raping underage high school girls and college girls. She did it right in front of Kavanaugh’s wife and children.
Republicans, conservatives and even Lindsey Graham circled the wagons and fought for Brett Kavanaugh. They stood in front of Kavanaugh and took the slings and arrows that were intended for him. They sacrificed their reputations and put it all on the line for Brett Kavanaugh. The New York Times hasn’t written a single nice article about Lindsey Graham since those hearings.
And Brett Kavanaugh repays that loyalty by inserting a dagger between the vertebra of the allies who stood up for him. What a **** weasel.
The same goes for Amy Coney Barrett. While her confirmation hearing wasn’t quite as brutal, it still had moments of awfulness. Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) actually asked Barrett if she had ever abused her authority in exchange for sexual favors from underlings. And again, people on the right assembled into a human force-field in front of Barrett. We stood up for her as the most vicious slanders were hurled at her. We took the hits for her – and she now stabs us in the back on a regular basis.
We suddenly find ourselves with a representative branch of government that no longer represents Americans, an executive branch that shuts off our power in the dead of winter and a high court that refuses to faithfully interpret the Constitution. This little experiment can’t last much longer under these conditions.
