Think so, do ya?
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.
The Supreme Court avoided involvement in the election because they wanted to stay out of the controversy — they didn’t want to be bullied by the Democrats or the media. There are other possible motives, but they’re even more disturbing. Cowing to bullies will not avoid conflict. Bullies prey on weakness. One has to either stand up to them eventually or accept servitude. Every kid on the playground has learned that lesson by the 8th grade. Apparently, John Roberts hasn’t. Each time Chief Justice Roberts has acceded to the bullies, he’s made the court’s future challenge greater.
Ruling that last-minute ad-hoc election changes were unconstitutional would have been relatively straightforward — but the court didn’t. Hearing the election fraud evidence and adjudicating the result would have created a political crap-storm — but it would have been the right thing to do. What will become of the court’s reputation if it becomes obvious that the election was stolen and rather than stand up, it sat down?
An April poll by Rasmussen Reports found that 51% of the population believes that fraud affected the election outcome. Does Roberts grasp the significance of that number? It’s the percentage of the population who believe the Supreme Court was derelict in defending the Constitution. If John Roberts wanted to defend the court, perhaps he should have considered the pursuit of the truth rather than avoidance of controversy.
A recent Ipsos poll found that 63% of the public thinks it’s time to impose term limits on Supreme Court Justices. The public isn’t stupid. It recognizes that the Supreme Court needs to be taken to the woodshed. The next few months will say a lot about the Supreme Court. Will it correct course, or will it embrace servitude to the mob?
I reject your premise, which is that the USSC is somehow above being tainted by the same corruption and chicanery its partner-branches of Amerika v2.0’s federal government have been devoured by. Since it too is actually a fully-paid up participating member of that poisoned and patently illegitimate entity, rather than some lofty, unconquerable repository for the last desperate hopes of Team Liberty—the Alamo of Constitutional principle, let’s call it—it most assuredly is not. By its own recent actions, it has shown itself to be not one iota more honorable, respectable, or worthy of trust than its two grubby siblings. Whatever it once may have been, there is now no relief coming from the Court—NONE. The entire government has declared itself an Enemy Of The People, including the Court. It’s time and past time for Real Americans to open their eyes and face that sad and sorry fact.

(I’m bad with riddles.)
It’s not Jack in the Box and it’s not Rocks in a Box and it’s not Cigars in a Box (Sorry BJ Clinton) and it’s not Match Box (cars in a box).
I’m only slightly better at riddles. I know what it’s not.
