The Supreme Court turned down a suit by former President Trump’s legal team Monday to overturn his Wisconsin loss. The case was Trump’s final lawsuit regarding 2020 voting fraud.
The former president won Wisconsin by more than 22,000 votes in the 2016 election. Current President Joe Biden won the state in 2020 by more than 20,000 votes.
The lawsuit argued the Wisconsin Election Commission’s COVID-19 policies were unconstitutional. This included the use of absentee ballot drop boxes, a controversial change that occurred shortly before the election.
In the unsigned order with no dissent, the Supreme Court’s Justices refused to hear Trump’s lawsuit. That means fewer than four justices had voted to hear the case. Trump’s legal team lost more than 60 cases with only one win following the 2020 election.
Trump’s legal team filed the lawsuit in December with a request for review before the January 6 Electoral College certification. The court rejected the request, turning down the case just this week.
The January 6 Electoral College certification was delayed when protestors entered the U.S. Capitol building. The certification took place late that night, certifying Biden as the nation’s 45th president. Some believe the January 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol influenced the court to avoid hearing the Wisconsin case.
The U.S. Capitol building remains surrounded by fencing, with some arguing the facility is better protected that the nation’s southern border.
Social media companies have also implemented policies to remove content suggesting voter fraud. Former President Trump’s accounts were deleted or shut down on various outlets after January 6, including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, Twitch, and Snapchat.
Free speech social media network Parler was also shut down following the January 6 riot. Extending far beyond Trump, millions of conservative Americans had their voices silenced regarding support of the president and against their thoughts regarding voting fraud.
Now Congress is debating H.R. 1, a bill to reform U.S. voting rights. Some of the bill’s changes seek to standardize controversial practices certain states used during the pandemic-influenced 2020 election. The Republican National Lawyers Association has listed the top 10 problems with the current bill. These new requirements would apply to every state, regardless of existing state laws:
- Automatic voter registration, including using many colleges and universities as voter registration agencies and registering 16- and 17-year-olds.
- Abolish voter ID laws and only require a signature in the polling place to vote.
- Online voter registration without protections to verify the eligibility of the voter.
- Same day registration during early voting and on Election Day.
- Fifteen days of early voting, including minimum hours and requirements for locations.
- Restricting election officials’ efforts to maintain the accuracy of voter registration lists.
- Automatically restoring the right of felons to vote after release from prison.
- No-excuse absentee/mail voting with signature comparison verification available to all voters.
- Provisional ballots cast outside a voter’s precinct must be counted.
- Congressional redistricting done by an independent redistricting commission micromanaged by HR1’s provisions. (from https://www.rnla.org/top_ten_problems_with_hr_1)
Trump is not the only one under attack. It’s clear the left desires to silence conservative voices and change the rules in its favor to win all future elections. Conservatives, now is the time to wake up and stand up for your freedoms. Contact your elected officials, share on social media, and speak out while you still have the opportunity.
