The Supreme Court’s Day of Reckoning is Coming

(American Thinker) The election of 2020 is going to lay bare the dereliction of the Supreme Court for all to see.  The COVD-19 pandemic gave numerous state election officials an excuse to implement far-reaching changes to our election processes.  Those changes obviously made our systems vulnerable to fraud.  States implemented massive mail-in balloting at the same time they relaxed ballot security and voter identification.  They even extended the voting periods — to give the criminals more time to commit their fraud.

All these changes were unconstitutional.  The Constitution clearly gives the various state legislatures the authority to define how their elections will be conducted — not state election officials.  Election officials are only empowered to conduct elections within the rules set forth by their respective legislatures — except, apparently, during a pandemic.  There must be a pandemic emanation hidden in a penumbra of the Constitution we didn’t know about.  Alarmed that the changes would invite fraud, various organizations filed lawsuits to stop the changes. 

The Supreme Court declined to get involved.  It ruled that the plaintiffs lacked standing because nobody had been harmed — yet.  Since the election hadn’t happened, nobody was damaged, and there was no case to be heard.  They were thinking like a civil court, not the defenders of the Constitution they are sworn to be.  It was a cowardly way to stay out of the political controversy.  Unfortunately, it also missed an opportunity to defend the Constitution, which was clearly under attack.

After all the ad-hoc changes had been allowed to stand, the election of 2020 saw an unprecedented number of irregularities — too many to ignore.  Election observers were banned from observing the election.  Counting stopped in the middle of the night and then restarted after boxes of ballots were mysteriously found.  There are reports of ballots being driven across state lines — by the truckload.  There were even precincts that counted more ballots than there were registered voters!  A number of states filed lawsuits against the states in which these irregularities occurred.

Even though the Supreme Court is supposed to be the arbiter of cases between states, it again refused to get involved.  They ruled that Texas couldn’t sue Pennsylvania because Texans had their votes accurately counted and therefore were not harmed by Pennsylvania.  Apparently having the wrong president crammed down the throats of Texans is not considered “harm.”  Given the flood of illegal aliens President Asterisk has invited — and the crime that has accompanied them — would the justices consider Texas “harmed” now?
