They still don’t get it!

And, again, by “they” I mean our wonderful politicians, our ever-diligent news media, and “the swamp” in general, regarding the protesters coming to Washington.

Let me begin by giving Vice President Mike Pence a shout-out for his contribution at the Senate’s electoral vote session!   

Hey…, I know!

Maybe, if the DOJ and FBI had done their jobs investigating election fraud, there would have been no need for the protesters to come to Washington.

How about that?

And former Attorney General Bill Barr has the nerve to say, “President Donald Trump’s conduct…, was a betrayal of his office and supporters.”

If anyone betrayed his office, it was you, Barr.   

In a statement to The Associated Press (AP), Barr said Thursday that, “orchestrating a mob to pressure Congress is inexcusable.”

What’s wrong with “pressuring Congress” to uphold The Constitution?

You should have tried it yourself more often.

The AP continued by saying, “Barr was one of Trump’s most loyal and ardent defenders in the Cabinet.”

Wait for it…, wait for it…

Excuse me, but I had to stop laughing before I could continue!

With friends like that, who needs enemies?!

Can we get any “fact checkers” to validate that statement?

Oops…, I forgot that “fact checkers” only “fact check” statements made by conservatives.

Fact checking the “fake news” is not allowed.

The Ap continues by saying, “Barr resigned last month amid lingering tension over the president’s baseless claims of election fraud and the investigation into Biden’s son.”

“Baseless claims,” huh?

I think you would have to actually do some investigating before you could determine the claims were “baseless.”

All you would’ve had to do was pretend you were checking into election fraud, and that may have been enough.

But you couldn’t even be bothered to do that.  

Maybe, if The Supreme Court had even bothered to hear Texas’ lawsuit, which was backed by 17 other states by the way, there would have been no need for the protesters to come to Washington.

But no one even wanted to hear about election fraud, and all of our concerns were dismissed out of hand.

Texas and the other 17 states’ concerns were just completely unfounded and unworthy of even listening to their concerns.

Again, all The Supreme Court would’ve had to do was consider the states’ concerns of election fraud, and that may have been enough.

But they couldn’t even be bothered to do that. 

Were they afraid of having to consider the truth?

It sure seems that way.

This is why the protesters showed up in Washington.

THEY WERE ALL TIRED OF HAVING TO PUT UP WITH ALL OF THE LIBERAL AND ESTABLISHMENT REPUBLICAN BS, WHILE HAVING NO RECOURSE NOW, SINCE THE ELECTION PROCESS HAS APPARENTLY BEEN COMPROMISED, AND NOBODY SEEMS TO CARE!

UPDATE#5: Remember the Alamo! (Monday, 12/14/20).

Late Friday night, The United States Supreme Court elected to not even hear the Texas election lawsuit.

Even though the lawsuit was backed by The President, 18 states, and over 100 members of Congress, The United States Supreme Court felt this would be a waste of their time to even hear the arguments is the case.

I was personally shocked by their decision which, I believe, will go down in history as one of he most shameful decisions ever rendered by a United States Supreme Court.

CBS News reports that, “In a tweet overnight, Mr. [President] Trump said, ‘The Supreme Court really let us down. No Wisdom, No Courage!’ after the court’s 7-2 ruling rejected a push from Texas to block electors in four battleground states from voting in the Electoral College.”

For the record…,  

The seven justices who rejected the case are:

John G. Roberts, Jr., Chief Justice of the United States,

Stephen G. Breyer, Associate Justice,

Sonia Sotomayor, Associate Justice,

Elena Kagan, Associate Justice,

Neil M. Gorsuch, Associate Justice,

Brett M. Kavanaugh, Associate Justice,

Amy Coney Barrett, Associate Justice.

The two justices who felt the case was worth hearing are:

Clarence Thomas, Associate Justice,

Samuel A. Alito, Jr., Associate Justice.

None of the three Justices appointed by President Trump: Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, nor Amy Coney Barrett, opted to defend The President. 

I’m sure the liberal justices would have acted the same way if this had been a challenge supporting former President Obama.

NOT!  

“The decision effectively ends The President’s five-week effort to legally challenge President-elect Joe Biden’s victory.”

“In rejecting the lawsuit, the court wrote that ‘Texas has not demonstrated a judicially cognizable interest in the manner in which another State conducts its elections.’”

So, The Supreme Court of The United States is saying that Texas, and all of the other states that joined in the lawsuit, somehow has no interest if other states don’t follow Constitutional law, allow their election to be compromised by cheating, and thus allow an illegitimate winner to be installed as President of the United States?

Really?

“The four states — Michigan, Pennsylvania, Georgia and Wisconsin — all went to Mr. Biden.”

“The lawsuit filed Monday by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton asked the court to invalidate the four key states’ votes, but judges across the country have repeatedly tossed out those claims due to a lack of evidence.”

“Lack of evidence?!”

There is an overwhelming amount of evidence, if any of these courts would care to look at it.

“Over 100 House Republicans filed a brief in support of Paxton’s suit claiming the election was riddled with allegations of fraud and irregularities.”

“Mr. [President] Trump had been counting on a Supreme Court victory. Three of the seven justices who rejected the case were Justices Kavanaugh, Gorsuch and Barrett — all his own appointees.”

Yes…, and shame on all of you.

Gorsuch

Kavanaugh

Barrett

“Earlier in the week, the president struck an optimistic tone at a White House Hanukkah party.”

“In a video posted to Twitter, he said: ‘I understand a lot of congressmen and women have joined in, a lot of people are joining in because they can’t allow this to happen.’”

‘“You can’t have a country where somebody loses an election and becomes president,’ Mr. Trump continued.”

The Supreme Court obviously doesn’t feel there is a problem with that.

“Paxton released a statement calling the court’s decision ‘unfortunate,’ asserting he ‘will continue to tirelessly defend the integrity and security of our elections and hold accountable those who shirk established election law for their own convenience.’”

“Unfortunate” is the very, very, very least that can be said to describe this turn of events.  

“The President’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani joined ‘Hannity’ on Fox News Friday evening, and said the Supreme Court’s decision was wrong.”

‘“The Supreme Court has made a terrible, terrible mistake in not getting this resolved in a fair, in a decent and in an equitable way,’ Giuliani said. ‘Because it’s gonna leave a real black mark with regard to this election throughout our entire history.’”

Well said, Rudy, and I absolutely agree.

Additionally, according to National Public Radio (NPR), “The U.S. Supreme Court on Friday night rejected an eleventh hour challenge to Joe Biden’s election as president.”

“The court’s action came in a one-page order, which said the complaint was denied ‘for lack of standing.’”

“Texas, supported by President Trump, tried to sue Pennsylvania, Georgia, Wisconsin and Michigan, claiming fraud, without evidence.”

Again, since when aren’t signed affidavits evidence?   

“But in order for a state to bring a case in court, especially the Supreme Court, a state must show it has been injured. In essence, the court said Texas could not show that it was injured by the way other states conducted their elections.”

I believe Texas demonstrated quite clearly how it believed it had been injured.

According to the Morris Bart, LLC Law firm website, regarding “standing to sue,” “When a party files a lawsuit there are many things he or she must prove besides just the facts of the case. One of these legal concepts is known in Latin as ‘locus standi,’ in other words, ‘standing to sue.’ Here is the essential breakdown of this principle and how it might affect your legal rights.”

“What does it mean to have ‘standing’ in court? In layman’s terms, legal standing to sue is about who has the right to bring an action in court, not about the issues or facts of the actual case. Under Article III of the Constitution, courts can only hear actual ‘cases’ or ‘controversies,’ so standing law helps enforce this requirement by requiring that the party filing sue suffer an injury caused by the other party that can actually be addressed by the court.”

“It’s important to note that because standing law is established by the US Constitution, these requirements only apply to federal court lawsuits. For state standing requirements, you would look to state law.”

“What are the three elements of standing to sue?”

“In the legal world, ‘element’ is another word for a factor that the party must prove as part of a broader legal concept. In terms of standing, a party must prove three elements.”

“INJURY IN FACT means that a person has suffered an actual injury. This can be a physical injury or economic loss, the two most common types of injuries. However, this element can also include harm that is caused to conservation, aesthetic, or recreational interests as well. Importantly, in most cases, the injury must already have occurred, rather than being something hypothetical that might happen in the future.”

“CAUSATION means that the injury to the plaintiff was caused by the person or party that is being sued. In other words, the party bringing the lawsuit needs to show that “but for” the defendant’s action or inaction, they would not have been injured. If the plaintiff cannot prove a connection between the defendant’s conduct and the injury, they will not be able to prove that they have standing to bring the lawsuit.”

“Finally, REDRESSABILITY means that the court will actually be capable of doing something to correct or make up for the plaintiff’s injury. This can mean ordering the defendant to undo what it has done, or if that isn’t possible, imposing penalties or fines that would have a deterrent effect. It’s important to remember that the court’s jurisdiction does not extend outside of the United States, and courts can only order parties to take certain actions, so there is a limit on whether a court’s order can “redress” the injury the plaintiff has suffered.”

“When interpreting these standards, courts have also added other rules, often called ‘prudential standing,’ to help them consistently apply standing law. These rules include limits on when taxpayers can sue for grievances that affect the general public, and the requirement that the injury be within the ‘zone of interest’ a statute is intended to cover, among many others.”

“Why do courts require standing for a lawsuit to proceed?  At the most basic level, courts require standing because the Constitution requires them to enforce the law. However, there are many policy reasons that courts require legal standing. Because of the requirement that federal courts only hear actual ‘cases or controversies,’ these requirements prevent courts from litigating abstract political questions that have public significance, but have not actually yet harmed anyone. This means that courts can use their time and efforts only on those cases where they can have an actual impact.”

This is why we get jokes like:

What do you call a busload of lawyers driving over a cliff?

A good start.

In my opinion, these justices were just looking for an excuse to not get involved. 

When over 75 million voters feel like they’ve been “injured,” I’d say that is something worth addressing.

Our country was looking to them to help pull us out of the fire, and they just turned their backs on law-abiding American citizens, and our country in general.  

Thanks for nothing Supreme Court.

UPDATE#4: Remember the Alamo! (Friday, 12/11/20).

Well, it’s in the Supreme Court’s hands now.

The only question left is: Is The Supreme Court going to sit back and allow the democrats to steal this election or not?  

According to Tyler Olson and Bill Mears of Fox News, “Texas on Friday morning filed a ‘reply brief’ with the Supreme Court as it asks the tribunal to hear its lawsuit that aims to essentially nullify the presidential elections in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Georgia and Wisconsin — putting the ball in the justices’ court to issue an order in the case.”

“The ‘briefing stage’ of Supreme Court litigation consists of the first party, in this instance, Texas, asking the court to hear the case. Then opposition briefs are filed by those on the other side of the case. Then the first party is allowed to file a ‘reply brief,’ which Texas did Friday morning.”

‘“Defendant States do not seriously address grave issues that Texas raises, choosing to hide behind other court venues and decisions in which Texas could not participate and to mischaracterize both the relief that Texas seeks and the justification for that relief,’ the Texas brief says of the opposition briefs filed by Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Georgia Thursday.”

“Texas continues: ‘An injunction should be issued because Defendant States have not—and cannot—defend their actions.’”

“The justices now could simply issue an order saying that they refuse to hear the case. They could also agree to hear the case and promptly dismiss it or rule in favor of Texas. The justices could also request oral arguments before ruling.”

“The crux of the Texas case is the argument that the four states it is suing — all four of which swung for President-elect Joe Biden — unconstitutionally changed their election statutes in their judiciaries or executive branches, when only the legislature is allowed to make election law. The reply brief Friday says that the four states failed to adequately dispute their point that this makes their entire elections invalid.”

‘“Defendant States do not credibly dispute either that they changed election statutes via non-legislative means or that the Electors Clause preempts such changes,’ the Texas brief says. ‘Accordingly, Texas is likely to prevail on the merits.’”

“Texas’ Friday brief says that it not asking the Supreme Court to decide or overturn the results of the presidential election, but right a constitutional wrong.”

‘“Texas does not ask this Court to reelect President Trump, and Texas does not seek to disenfranchise the majority of Defendant States’ voters,’ Texas’ brief says.”

“It continues: ‘Texas asks this Court to recognize the obvious fact that Defendant States’ maladministration of the 2020 election makes it impossible to know which candidate garnered the majority of lawful votes. The Court’s role is to strike unconstitutional action and remand to the actors that the Constitution and Congress vest with authority for the next step.’”

How can the Supreme Court not act in this case?

‘“The timing is extremely late and the justices have been reluctant to resolve election disputes too close to an election, much less after a presidential election has been conducted and votes certified in the states at issue,’ [University of Richmond School of Law professor Carl] Tobias told Fox News.”

“Late?”

Is that all you’ve got?

“Late?”

“Late” regarding what?

Is it ever too late to request that justice be served?

They just finally completed counting votes not too long ago!

And it seems like they keep finding more ballots to count all the time!  

“There is no specific time limit for the justices to issue an order in the case, though some action is likely to come before Monday [12/14/2020], which is when presidential electors across the country will assemble in their state capitals to cast their electoral votes for president.”

Again, it is my belief that, considering all of the possible ramifications, this decision by The Supreme Court will go down in history as the most important decision it has ever made.

We’ll now see if the five conservative judges on the Supreme Court have the courage to do the right thing.  I already know how the liberal judges are going to vote.

UPDATE#3: Remember the Alamo! (Friday, 12/11/20).

The “defendant states’” responses are in.  Now it will be up to the Supreme Court to decide if Texas’ lawsuit is even worth consideration.

Tyler Olson and Bill Mears of Fox News report that, “Pennsylvania, Georgia, Wisconsin and Michigan filed briefs Thursday in response to the Texas case seeking to bar their presidential electors from voting.”

“In briefs submitted with the Supreme Court on Thursday, Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin slammed the Texas lawsuit to prevent those four states from casting their electoral votes as a ‘meritless’ effort to ‘decimate the electorate of the United States.’”

Excuse me Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin, but the Texas lawsuit is hardly “meritless.”

Taken from the filed Texas motion and supporting documentation:

“Expert analysis using a commonly accepted statistical test further raises serious questions as to the integrity of this election.”

“The probability of former Vice President Biden winning the popular vote in the four Defendant States—Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin—independently given President Trump’s early lead in those States as of 3 a.m. on November 4, 2020, is less than one in a quadrillion, or 1 in 1,000,000,000,000,000. For former Vice President Biden to win these four States collectively, the odds of that event happening decrease to less than one in a quadrillion to the fourth power (i.e., 1 in 1,000,000,000,000,000^4). See Decl. of Charles J. Cicchetti, Ph.D. (“Cicchetti Decl.”) at ¶¶ 14-21, 30-31. See App. 4a-7a, 9a. 11.”

So, expert mathematical analysis is saying that Joe Biden winning the vote in these four states, given the circumstances, was basically impossible.

We have to listen to the “experts” after all, don’t we?

We have to follow the Science, don’t we?  

Just sayin’.  

“The response briefs were filed just ahead of a 3 p.m. deadline the Supreme Court previously gave the states to respond to the Texas suit.”

“It [the Texas lawsuit] aims to take advantage of the Supreme Court’s original jurisdiction in disputes between states, bypassing lower federal courts, which have uniformly ruled against other election-related litigation by President Trump and his allies.”

Bypassing the lower federal courts, in this case, was key.  The lower courts, in regards to this case, would most certainly dismiss it out of hand, either because the judge had a liberal bias, or the judge did not want to assume the responsibility for ruling in favor of Texas.      

“The Texas suit gained the backing of 17 other states Wednesday when, led by Missouri, they filed a brief endorsing the Paxton’s case. Then on Thursday, Missouri and five other states filed another brief with the Supreme Court this time asking to be allowed to join Texas as litigants in the case.”

“But despite the widespread support from red-state attorneys general for Texas’ case, attorneys general Pennsylvania, Michigan, Georgia and Wisconsin attacked the suit in their responses as ‘meritless’ and ‘nakedly political.’”

‘“Texas waited until now to seek an injunction to nullify Pennsylvania’s election results because all of the other political and litigation machinations of Petitioner’s preferred presidential candidate have failed,’ the Pennsylvania brief, led by Attorney General Josh Shaprio, states.”

So, what? 

What does this, if even true, have to do with the merits of Texas’ lawsuit?     

‘“The Trump campaign began with a series of meritless litigations. When that failed, it turned to state legislatures to overturn the clear election results,’ Pennsylvania continued. ‘Upon that failure, Texas now turns to this Court to overturn the election results of more than 10% of the country. Texas literally seeks to decimate the electorate of the United States.’”

Nooo…, Texas now turns to the Court to stop the fraudulent election results from 10% of the country decimating the rights of the other 90% of the country!

‘“Texas asserts that this Court’s intervention is necessary to ensure faith in the election. But it is hard to imagine what could possibly undermine faith in democracy more than this Court permitting one state to enlist the Court in its attempt to overturn the election results in other states,’ the Wisconsin brief says. ‘Merely hearing this case—regardless of the outcome—would generate confusion, lend legitimacy to claims judges across the country have found meritless, and amplify the uncertainty and distrust these false claims have generated.’”

“Michigan, led by Attorney General Dana Nessell, also laid out a variety of factors that it believes weigh heavily against the Texas case.”

‘“The base of Texas’s claims rests on an assertion that Michigan has violated its own election laws. Not true,’ the Michigan brief says.”

Now there you go lying again, Ms. Nessell.

I know…, it just comes with the job, and with being a democrat.  

“The crux of the arguments from Texas and the states that support it is that the Constitution gives only state legislatures the power to set rules regarding presidential elections. Therefore, when the executive and judicial branches in Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Georgia changed how their elections would work this year in light of the coronavirus pandemic, their elections became invalid.”

‘“When non-legislative actors in other States encroach on the authority of the ‘Legislature thereof’ in that State to administer a Presidential election, they threaten the liberty, not just of their own citizens, but of every citizen of the United States who casts a lawful ballot in that election—including the citizens of amici States,’ the Wednesday brief filed by Missouri and 16 other states says.”

Bingo!

Now, what’s so hard to understand about that, and how can that thinking even be argued with?

Regardless, the democrats are arguing against it.

“But most legal experts agree that for many procedural reasons the Texas case is almost certain to fail, and that their merits argument is fatally flawed too.”

‘“To begin with, the imagined “rule” is universally ignored since states have in fact allowed their governors, judiciaries, or both to make rulings and determinations affecting the manner in which presidential elections are held and electors thus chosen,’ Walter Olson of the libertarian Cato Institute told Fox News.”

This “imagined rule” you refer to, Mr. Olsen, is a little thing called The Constitution of the United States!  

And whether or not states have chosen to ignore The Constitution in the past, has no bearing on whether or not their current election processes are legal or not.

It’s really a childish excuse. 

“We’ve established illegal voting processes before, so…”

“Harvard law professor [Okay…, I can already see where this is going!] and former Supreme Court clerk to late Justice Antonin Scalia, Lawrence Lessig, meanwhile, said that the motivations for the Texas case are purely political.”

See, I told you!  

‘“This is political posturing through litigation. Not one of those attorneys general believes they are entitled to win,’ he told Fox News. ‘As lawyers, that should stop them from signing onto such an action. But they are acting as politicians, not lawyers here — to the detriment of the rule of law.’”

I really can’t believe you were able to get that statement out, Mr. Lessig, without choking on your own words!

People “acting as politicians,” and the “detriment of the rule of law?!”

Seriously?  

Along with all of the additional states supporting the Texas lawsuit, The President has signed on in support of it, as have 106 House members who filed a brief with the Supreme Court as well.

It is my belief that, considering all of the possible ramifications, this decision by The Supreme Court will go down in history as the most important decision it has ever made.

I’ll continue to keep you posted.

UPDATE#2: Remember the Alamo! (12/10/20).

Let’s get this party started!

It looks like everyone wants to get in on the fun now.

According to the CBSDFW.com Staff (The Dallas/Fort Worth CBS local affiliate), “Eighteen states — now including Arizona — have joined a Texas lawsuit filed by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton against the states of Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Georgia. That lawsuit was filed directly with the United States Supreme Court on Monday, Dec. 7.”

Eighteen states!!!

That’s over a third of the United States!

“The suit asks the court to order the ‘defendant states’ legislatures to displace ‘tainted’ election results in those states and choose their own slate of electors.”

“Paxton sued battleground states on behalf of the state of Texas saying the ‘defendant states’ made unconstitutional changes to their laws before the 2020 election.”

“He said those states tainted the integrity of the vote for Texas and all states.”

“An amicus brief (amicus curiae) or ‘friend of the court’ brief was filed with the high court earlier Wednesday. The states of Missouri, Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah and West Virginia have all signed on to the brief that backs the Texas suit.”

“Arizona was the latest state to file an amicus brief on Wednesday bringing the total to 18 states.”

Thank you, thank you, thank you, to all of these other states which have chosen to stand up for justice and stand up for America.

“According to the American Bar Association, ‘Friend of the court’ or amicus curiae briefs are often filed in appellate cases heard by the U.S. Supreme Court and state supreme courts, as well as intermediate courts of appeal. And there is considerable evidence that amicus briefs have influence.”

“On Tuesday evening, the Supreme Court ordered the defendant states to reply by 3 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 10.”

‘“It’s not unusual,’ SMU [Southern Methodist University] Constitutional Law Professor Dale Carpenter told CBS 11. ‘I don’t think it indicates anything very important… I think the court will act quickly on Thursday.’”

‘“The states violated statutes enacted by their duly elected legislatures, thereby violating the Constitution. By ignoring both state and federal law, these states have not only tainted the integrity of their own citizens’ vote, but of Texas and every other state that held lawful elections,’ said Paxton. ‘Their failure to abide by the rule of law casts a dark shadow of doubt over the outcome of the entire election. We now ask that the Supreme Court step in to correct this egregious error.’”

‘“Ken Paxton is asking that Republican state legislatures in four states be allowed to displace the will of the voters in those States and choose their own slate of electors, presumably to hand the election to Donald Trump in January,’ said [Professor] Carpenter. ‘The Supreme Court is not going to allow that to happen.’”

Nice try professor!

“Displace the will of the voters?!!!

You mean “displace the will” of the cheaters?

That’s the whole point here, Professor!  Tens of thousands, possibly hundreds of thousands, of fraudulent and illegal votes in these 4 defendant states displaces the actual will of legal voters, who submitted legal ballots in the 4 defendant states and every other state in the union.

Excuse me…, but you are such a “tool” and such a “useful idiot,” Professor Carpenter.

I have also heard that President Trump and his legal team have officially signed on to the lawsuit, and that they have asked Senator Ted Cruz of Texas to represent them all and plead the case in the Supreme Court.

Today may end up being a VERY big day in the history of United States and a big day for the future of these United States.

UPDATE: Remember the Alamo! (12/09/20).

Come on in, the water is just fine!

More states are joining Texas in the fight against the 2020 election fraud.

According to Edmund DeMarche of Fox News, “Missouri joins ‘fight’ alongside Texas to challenge election before Supreme Court.”

“Eric Schmitt, the attorney general from Missouri, announced on Twitter late Tuesday that his state is ‘in the fight’ after Texas announced its election challenge that would invalidate the 62 Electoral College votes from four battleground states and award President Trump with a second term.”

Bam!

Now that’s what I’m talking about!

‘“Election integrity is central to our republic,’ Schmitt tweeted. “And I will defend it at every turn. As I have in other cases—I will help lead the effort in support of Texas’ #SCOTUS filing today. Missouri is in the fight.’”

‘“If other states don’t follow the Constitution and if their state legislature isn’t responsible for overseeing their elections … it affects my state,’ Ken Paxton, the attorney general from Texas said. ‘Our job is to make sure the Constitution is followed and that every vote counts. And in this case, I’m not sure every vote was counted. Not in the right way.’”

Oh, I’m very sure the votes in these swing states were not counted in the right way.

Attorneys general from Louisiana, Alabama, Arkansas and other states have reportedly announced their support of the lawsuit as well.

KATC News, an ABC affiliate covering Louisiana, reported that, “Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry issued a statement on Tuesday supporting the complaint filed by the State of Texas before the U.S. Supreme Court regarding 2020 presidential election.”

“According to a release from the attorney general’s office, Landry said: ‘Millions of Louisiana citizens, and tens of millions of our fellow citizens in the country, have deep concerns regarding the conduct of the 2020 federal elections. Deeply rooted in these concerns is the fact that some states appear to have conducted their elections with a disregard to the U.S. Constitution.’”

Amen.

‘“Furthermore, many Louisianans have become more frustrated as some in media and the political class try to sidestep legitimate issues for the sake of expediency.’”

Amen again.

‘“The U.S. Constitution in Article 1, Section 4, states plainly: ‘The Times, Places and Manner of holding Elections for Senators and Representatives, shall be prescribed in each State by the Legislature …’”

‘“The power for the conduct of federal elections is held by the State Legislatures in each state. In states like Pennsylvania, the judicial branch attempted to seize control of these duties and obligations and to set their own rules.’”

‘“These actions appear to be unconstitutional. If it is unconstitutional for Pennsylvania to take this action, it is similarly unconstitutional for other states to have done the same.’”

‘“Louisiana citizens are damaged if elections in other states were conducted outside the confines of the Constitution while we obeyed the rules.’”

Stay tuned.  I’ll keep you posted on any further updates regarding this election lawsuit.

Remember the Alamo!

That’s right ladies and gentlemen…, and, “Don’t mess with Texas!”

Evie Fordham of Fox News reports that, “Texas sues 4 key states at Supreme Court claiming unconstitutional voting changes.”

Alright now…, here we go!  

“Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton sued battleground states Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan and Wisconsin on Tuesday to challenge their 2020 presidential election results.”

‘“Using the COVID-19 pandemic as a justification, government officials in the defendant states of Georgia, Michigan, and Wisconsin, and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania (collectively, ‘Defendant States’), usurped their legislatures’ authority and unconstitutionally revised their state’s election statutes,’ Paxton’s complaint says. ‘They accomplished these statutory revisions through executive fiat or friendly lawsuits, thereby weakening ballot integrity.’”

There is no doubt that everything Mr. Paxton just said there is true.

“Paxton is asking the U.S. Supreme Court to ‘declare that any electoral college votes cast by such presidential electors appointed in Defendant States Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan, and Wisconsin are in violation of the Electors Clause and the Fourteenth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution and cannot be counted.’”

You tell ’em Mr. Texas Attorney General!   

“Disputes between states are among the few cases of original jurisdiction for the Supreme Court, meaning lower courts cannot first hear the cases.”

The fact that this suit goes straight to the Supreme Court is huge!

“The four states are among a handful where the Trump campaign is trying to overturn results that handed President-elect Joe Biden the victory. Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan and Wisconsin have certified their results, but the Trump campaign is continuing to exhaust its legal options, including through a lawsuit filed last week in Wisconsin.”

Like they say, “It ain’t over ‘til it’s over.”

“The election ‘suffered from significant and unconstitutional irregularities in the Defendant States,’ the filing says, citing 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.’”

What he said.

All we can do is keep our fingers crossed on this one, but at least we should find out pretty quickly what the Supreme Court has to say about this.

I’ll keep you posted.

The attempt to steal an election.

It is appalling to me that the democrats are blatantly trying to steal the 2020 presidential election, and their co-conspirators, the mainstream media, and the “deep state” DOJ and FBI, are just looking the other way. 

Is there any justice left in America?

We’ll see.

We still have a month and a half until Joe Biden would be sworn in.

In the meantime, I see more and more states rushing to “certify” their elections…, as if this was some sort of irreversible determination.  

Please remember that “nothing is written in stone.”

The word “decertify” is also a word we felt the need for in the English language.

Decertify: To remove a certificate or certification from (someone or something), typically for failure to comply with a regulating authority’s rules or standards.

Hmmm…, it seems like that may be applicable in some of these states before too long.

It’s been quite clear, these last four years, that the democrats would stop at nothing to try and delegitimize President Trump, remove him from office, or insure he wasn’t re-elected.

Having failed to remove him from office, it’s apparent that the democrats targeted “swing states” to fraudulently win the election.

The only problem they encountered was that President Trump’s margins for victory were much higher than they anticipated, forcing them to stop the counts in these states, which allowed them to inject the needed number of votes to put Biden ahead.  

The ordered recounts haven’t exposed their fraud because they’re just recounting all of the votes, legal or not.

And who’s to say that these recounts are even being handled properly?

I mean, once the whole election process has been called into question, why would anyone trust the vote in these “swing states?”  

We saw the counting be inexplicably halted on election night.

Then we saw thousands and thousands of votes magically appear for Joe Biden in the wee hours of the morning.

We saw republican election monitors banned from election polling places.

And we actually saw election officials covering up the windows of their counting rooms!

What exactly were they hiding?

And those are all not to mention the hundreds of affidavits submitted by people who witnessed additional wrong-doing during the election.

I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.

Could the Supreme Court delay the transfer of power until the integrity of the election was determined?

Could the Supreme Court order a revote in the states in question?

This may be the only fair way to resolve this election.

Like I said, we’ll find out very shortly if there is any justice left in America.

For all of our sakes, I really hope there is.

Another political “hit and run.”

Yes…, “hit and run” politics has become extremely popular for the democrats as of late.

It’s a nice tactic, when you can get away with it…, and, of course, the liberal propaganda fake news media is only more than happy to cooperate.

Most recently, we have seen vice presidential candidate, Senator Kamala Harris, perform a political “hit and run.”

According to Thomas Barrabi of Fox News, “Democratic vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris faced renewed scrutiny for her lack of press availability on Monday after she abruptly exited the stage after a speech in North Carolina in which she criticized President Trump’s bid to fill a Supreme Court seat before the election.”

“Harris did not take any questions from the media after her speech at Shaw University, one of North Carolina’s historically black colleges and universities. The event was closed to the general public and attended only by news reporters, according to the Fayetteville Observer.”

Political “hit and run!”

“Aside from her role as Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s running mate, Harris is a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee and will have a chance to directly question Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett, Trump’s pick to fill the high court vacancy, in any confirmation hearing that takes place prior to Nov. 3.”

“In her speech, which was criticized by the research wing of the Republican National Committee, Harris ripped the GOP for moving forward with the nomination so close to an election.”

‘“We will not give up, and we will not give in,’ Harris said. ‘We will not let the infection that President Trump has injected into the presidency and into Congress, that has paralyzed our politics and pitted Americans against each other, spread to the United States Supreme Court.’”

Translation: We will do everything we can to discredit and limit President Trump, since he refuses to play ball with the establishment politicians in Washington D.C. and our deep state bureaucrats. He has made it very difficult for all of us money grubbing, anti-America, vermin to take advantage of America and the American people.

“Harris has faced criticism for not taking questions from the press in recent days.”

Oh, Really?

I don’t think you can hardly call anything she has faced anywhere near any kind of serious criticism.

Now, President Trump, he faces criticism, serious criticism, on a daily basis.

The level of criticism The President faces would have little Joey Biden and little Kammy Harris running home and crying to their mommies.

Believe that.

“Reporters from multiple outlets have questioned why Harris hasn’t made herself available to the media, and [President] Trump and members of his campaign staff have frequently complained that both Biden and Harris are being given a free pass when it comes to questions from the press.”

Yes…, “reporters” from obscure outlets who nobody pays attention to. All of the major mainstream media outlets are sitting on their hands like good little co-conspirators.

“Fox News reported last week that Biden hasn’t participated in a formal press conference or gaggle since she was announced as Biden’s running mate in August.”

Yes, we’ve all seen the pathetic “press conferences” put on by Biden and his campaign…, which include a few “reporters” sitting in their socially distanced circles, and posing preapproved questions to Sleepy Joe, if they’re allowed to even do that.

“[President] Trump nominated [Judge Amy Coney] Barrett on Saturday for the Supreme Court seat held by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg until her death earlier this month.”

“In her speech, Harris warned that Barrett’s confirmation to the Supreme Court would endanger the Obama-era Affordable Care Act, as well as reproductive rights legislation.”

What you say is all a matter of opinion and perspective Senator Harris.

Some would say “good riddance” to the UNaffordable Care Act, as well as your “NON-reproductive rights.”

“The Supreme Court will hear arguments on the ACA just days after the election.”

‘“Judge Barrett has a long record of opposing abortion and reproductive rights,’ Harris said. ‘There is no other issue that so disrespects and dishonors the work of Justice Ginsburg’s life than undoing the seminal decision in the court’s history that made it clear a woman has a right to make decisions about her own body.’”

Again, what you say is all a matter of opinion and perspective Senator Harris.

Some would say, including me, that Justice Ginsburg has the blood of millions of unborn babies on her hands.

Just sayin’.

Rebecca Klar, for “The Hill” news website reported that, “Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s wife, Jill Biden, shut down a question Sunday from CNN’s Jake Tapper about any ‘gaffe’ her husband may make.”

‘“Oh, you can’t even go there,’ Jill Biden told the ‘State of the Union’ host when he led into a question by noting that the former vice president ‘has been known to make the occasional gaffe.’”

‘“After Donald Trump, you cannot even say the word gaffe,’ she said.”

‘“I can’t even say the word gaffe?’ Tapper asked.”

‘“Nope. Done. It’s gone,’ she responded.”

‘“Over, so over,’ she added.”

Wow…, way to fold up like a cheap suit there, Jake!

When Jill Biden tells you to shut up and go screw yourself…, if you’re the fake news, you shut up and go screw yourself!

It must be nice to be able to dictate what you may and may not be asked about.

“President Trump has sought to make Joe Biden’s age and mental acuity an issue in the campaign, suggesting the Democrat has dementia and accusing him of having used drugs to improve his public performance. Trump renewed his call on Sunday for drug tests before Tuesday’s debate.”

The President has also asked they both be checked for any communication devices in their ears.

The Biden campaign has denied both requests.

There’s only one reason why anyone would be afraid to take a drug test.

And there’s only one reason why you would care if anyone checked your ears for anything funny in there.

Just sayin’.

“Jill Biden told Tapper her husband is ready to face Trump on Tuesday in the first general election presidential debate.”

‘“Oh, my gosh, yes, he’s ready,’ she said on CNN. ‘You know, one of the things I am excited for is when the American people see Joe Biden up there on that stage, they’re going to see what a president looks like, someone who is, like I’m saying, calm, steady, strong, resilient. It’s like night and day between the two candidates. And so I can’t wait for the American people to see Joe, to see that statesman up there in front of the American public.’”

Wow, Mrs. Biden, but excuse me…, oh my gosh, you are sooo full of crap!

Another political “hit and run.”

Oh, Schumer you’re so blind, you’re so blind you blow my mind! Hey Schumer, hey Schumer!

Senator UpChuck Schumer from the Peoples’ Republic of New York.

They should sell hats with “PRNY” on them!

Yeah!  This sales could help support all of the criminals released back into the community without bail…, not to mention their future innocent victims.

Anyway…, I digress.

Senator Charles (Chuck) Schumer shot his mouth off the other day, while speaking out in front of the Supreme Court building.

So what is all of the fuss about?

Mr.EricksonRules is going to pull all of the pertinent information together for you and give you the proper perception of Senator Schumer’s words, as well as of the responses of others.

It all started with what democrat Senator Chuck Schumer said while speaking at an abortion rights rally outside of the Supreme Court on March 4, 2020.

Here are the exact words Schumer said:

“Now we stand here today because behind me, inside the walls of this Court, the Supreme Court is hearing arguments, as you know, for the first major abortion rights cases since Justice Kavanaugh and Justice Gorsuch came to the bench.”

“From Louisiana, to Missouri, to Texas, Republican legislatures are waging war on women, all women. And they’re taking away fundamental rights. I want to tell you Gorsuch, I want to tell you Kavanaugh, you have released the whirlwind and you will pay the price. You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.”

Well, that definitely sounds like a threat to me.

Since Justice Gorsuch and Justice Kavanaugh are appointed for life and don’t have to be re-elected, how exactly will they “pay the price,” Mr. Schumer?

And what do you think they are going to be “hit” with?

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Schumer’s remarks were, “astonishing, reckless and completely irresponsible.”

President Trump tweeted, “There can be few things worse in a civilized, law abiding nation, than a United States Senator openly, and for all to see and hear, threatening the Supreme Court or its Justices. This is what Chuck Schumer just did. He must pay a severe price for this!  — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 5, 2020”

According to Ian Millhiser for the VOX website, Schumer’s words, “received a rare public rebuke from Chief Justice John Roberts.”

“Roberts, for his part, interpreted this statement as a direct threat against Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, and it’s easy to see why. ‘Justices know that criticism comes with the territory,’ the chief justice said in his statement rebuking Schumer. ‘But threatening statements of this sort from the highest levels of government are not only inappropriate, they are dangerous.’”

I think everyone should complete agree with Chief Justice Roberts words.

And excuse Mr. Millhiser, why would the Chief Justice interpret Schumer’s words any other way but as a “direct threat against Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh?”

Senator Schumer specifically called them out.

Any other interpretation is completely disingenuous and propagandistic spin.

The next day, after being reprimanded in The Senate by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer said, “I should not have used the words I used yesterday.  They did not come out the way I intended to.”

Hmmm…, that’s funny, because you’ve been at this talking thing for quite a few years now…, in fact, it’s your job!  I’m pretty sure you said exactly what you intended to say.

“He says that his intention was to convey that ‘there would be political consequences—political consequences, for President Trump and Senate Republicans—if the Supreme Court, with newly confirmed Justices, stripped away a woman’s right to choose.’”

Hmmm…, again that’s funny, because you didn’t say anything about “political consequences,” President Trump or Senate republicans, Mr. Schumer.

Are we to believe that you were that confused and unable to say what you really meant for some unknown reason?

Ian Millhiser also attempts to reason that, “There also isn’t any law prohibiting United States senators from making vaguely menacing statements about Supreme Court justices.”

Oh, but I think there is, Mr. Ian Millhiser…, and I wouldn’t necessarily classify his statements as “vague” either.

Why do I feel that if President Trump would have said these things you wouldn’t have classified his remarks as “vague?”

Just sayin’.

Anyway…, back to the law I think was violated here.

“Threatening government officials of the United States IS a felony under federal law. Threatening the President of the United States is a felony under 18 U.S.C. § 871, punishable by up to 5 years of imprisonment, that is investigated by the United States Secret Service.  Threatening other officials is a Class C or D felony, usually carrying maximum penalties of 5 or 10 years under 18 U.S.C. § 875, 18 U.S.C. § 876 and other statutes.  When a threat is made against a judge, it can also be considered obstruction of justice.”

Schumer continued with his “apology” in The Senate by saying, “Of course, I did not intend to suggest anything other than political and public opinion consequences for the Supreme Court, and it is a gross distortion to imply otherwise.”

“I’m from Brooklyn,” Schumer then explained. “We speak in strong language. I shouldn’t have used the words I did, but in no way was I making a threat. I never, never, would do such a thing. And Leader McConnell knows that. And Republicans, manufacturing outrage over these comments know that too.”

Chucky, Chucky…, where should I begin?

First of all, you “of course” are not given credit for anything.

Second of all, you yourself are the one attempting the “gross distortion here,” not anyone else.

Next you somehow are attempting to blame what you said and how you speak on being from Brooklyn?

Really?

What?!

Then you say people from Brooklyn speak in “strong language?”

Again…, what?!

People from Brooklyn speak in “strong language” compared to who?

In your estimation, Mr. Schumer, are there any people who talk in stronger language who would be excused from saying ever dumber things than you?

Just wondering.

Inquiring minds want to know.

I believe, for now, that covers UpChuck Schumer’s threatening Supreme Court comments.

Lastly I’d like to talk about various politicians and various media outlets attempting to justify Schumer’s comments based on comments President Trump has made about The Supreme Court.

OK…, so what has President Trump said?

Amanda Holpuch of The Guardian reports that, “While ‘elections have consequences’ – a reference to his [President Trump’s] two Supreme Court appointments since winning the White House, both reliable conservatives – ‘I only ask for fairness, especially when it comes to decisions made by the United States Supreme Court!’”

“At a press conference in India, [President Trump] Trump repeated his complaint.”

‘“I just don’t know how they [Justices Ginsberg and Sotomayor] cannot recuse themselves from anything having to do with Trump or Trump-related,’ he said. ‘The right thing to do is that.’”

‘“What Justice Sotomayor said … was really highly inappropriate and everybody agrees to that. Virtually everybody. I’ve seen papers on it, people cannot believe that she said it.’”

President Trump expressing his opinion and concern about certain Justices, based on prior inflammatory remarks, and their ability to judge fairly and without bias, is completely different from Senator Schumer’s threatening remarks.

These politicians and media outlets attempting to equate President Trump’s remarks to Senator Schumer’s remarks, somehow, are acting completely irresponsible and fraudulent.
