Update December 12, 2020 2 pm CST: Alaska has joined Texas and other states with the lawsuit.
“Hold my Lone Star Beer,” President Donald J. Trump seems to be saying as he vowed to intervene in the Texas case sent to the Supreme Court, tweeting on Wednesday:
“We will be INTERVENING in the Texas (plus many other states) case. This is the big one. Our Country needs a victory!”
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton late Monday, by filing suit with the Supreme Court, is asking for a majority of justices to invalidate the Nov. 3 election results in Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.
He argues that officials in those four battleground states violated the Constitution by making changes to how ballots were cast and counted without legislative approval.
Four justices must agree for the court to hear the case. The Electoral College is scheduled to vote Dec. 14. In the election case brought before the Supreme Court in 2000, the court ruled on Dec. 12.
As of this writing, 18 more states have joined Texas to fight the electoral fraud perpetrated by Democrat operatives.
Don’t Believe Mainstream Media
In another tweet, Trump said, “This was not my case as has been so incorrectly reported. The case that everyone has been waiting for is the State’s case with Texas and numerous others joining. It is very strong, ALL CRITERIA MET. How can you have a presidency when a vast majority think the election was RIGGED?”
Trump was referring to a case brought by Republican Pennsylvania U.S. Rep. Mike Kelly against the state of Pennsylvania, which the Supreme Court rejected to hear on Tuesday.
Article 3, Section 2 of the U.S. Constitution states that the Supreme Court can hear cases brought by one state against another without first going to a lower court.
Paxton realizes that the original jurisdiction of the Supreme Court is exclusive when it comes to disputes between the states.
According to US Constitution, states cannot sue other states in any court except SCOTUS. Congress has no power to regulate it by statute.
SCOTUS remedies are unique and can be both legal and equitable, granting them the sole power to make a ruling. This is literally a constitutional jurisdiction that grants SCOTUS the authority to rule how to decide the dispute, including what evidence to consider.
The justices are responsible for the development of the evidentiary record and are not bound by the rulings or fact findings of any other court.
Texas Is On Course
Texas automatically has standing to challenge the constitutional bonafides of another state’s electoral college selection process.
Since SCOTUS controls the process constitutionally, there are no procedural technicalities that can defeat jurisdiction other than what is expressly set forth in the Constitution.
SCOTUS must decide the issues because the Constitution expressly leaves the decision to SCOTUS.
There is no abstention doctrine or political question dodge available.
In essence, Texas said, “The Pennsylvania Supreme Court thinks election fraud doesn’t matter because those contesting the election waited until after the election and the fraud to file their contest.”
Paxton told Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Tuesday “Our request is we want to be heard” before the U.S. Supreme Court. “… We’re pleading with the U.S. Supreme Court, please hear our case. Give us a chance at least to argue what we think is right. We want to argue the Constitution.”
Compromised Leaders Must Decide: Do What’s Right or Politically Die
If SCOTUS decides to remand the resolution to the legislators, those state’s elected officials realize the truth that their constituents, by a large margin voted for Trump and MAGA.
By voting against President Trump, many would be ending their career with their voters. Even those under the influence of China, George Soros and Big Pharma lobbyists would have to decide if they would fall on the sword (hoping to be taken care of by them).
If remanded to the state legislatures, then the corrupt ones would be wise to vote fast to avoid the MAGA rallies.
Trump’s First Responsibility: Defend America
Trump will defend the security of the United States with or without SCOTUS. He has to, its his job, thats what his oath of office requires him to do, and I couldn’t think of a better person to lead us into the fray.
China owns DOMINION, and controls all the officials who run the machines at every level of government.
Constitution experts agree that the Supreme Court should recognize Constitutional mandates “are being changed, perverted and, in some cases, outright ignored by thoroughly corrupted government officials, thereby rendering any actions to return decision making powers to the same corrupt and criminal system just as corrupt.”
By now, the justices know there are some officials at every level that are corrupt and engaging in criminal behavior, and “they realize there’s a very good chance that sending it back into that system again would be a mistake with the votes stolen and legitimate voters disenfranchised.”
States That Have Joined Texas
“The integrity of our elections is a critical part of our nation and it must be upheld,” said Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge.
Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall said his state is committed to “the fight to ensure election integrity” and that the Supreme Court’s decision on the lawsuit will “instruct me as to how the State of Alabama will proceed in our fight to ensure election integrity.”
Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry said Tuesday that “tens of millions of our fellow citizens in the country have deep concerns regarding the conduct of the 2020 federal elections,” adding that “the Justices should hear and decide the case which we have joined representing the citizens of Louisiana.”
“Election integrity is central to our republic,” said in a tweet Missouri’s Attorney General Eric Schmitt on Tuesday. “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.”
According to a Georgia lawsuit filed by President Trump’s campaign, over 30 violations of their state law were cited.
There were 2,560 felons who voted, 66,247 underage voters, and 2,423 votes from people who were not registered.
The lawsuit additionally lists 1,043 individuals registered at PO boxes, 4,926 individuals who voted in Georgia after registering in another state, 395 individuals who voted in two states, 15,700 votes from people who moved out of state before the election, 40,279 votes of people who moved without re-registering in their new county and 30,000 – 40,000 absentee ballots lacking proper signature matching and verification.
Currently, Biden leads the state with 2,473,633 votes to Trump’s 2,461,854. The lawsuit has highlighted nearly 200,000 illegal votes, more than enough to change the results.
The lawsuit also showed that statistically it is not possible for Biden to win all four states.
“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.”
In Pennsylvania, where Biden won by more than 80,000 votes, a group of Republicans, led by Rep. Mike Kelly, asked the state Supreme Court to overturn the state’s 2019 law on mail-in voting.
Their suit argues that a state statute, known as Act 77, violates both the state and federal Constitution by allowing for “no-excuse mail-in” votes on a large scale.
More than 2.5 million Pennsylvania residents voted by mail during the election, constituting more than one-third of total ballots cast statewide.
The state’s Supreme Court shot down the lawsuit, prompting Republican officials to make an appeal to the Supreme Court.
Texas Sen. Ted Cruz has offered to make arguments if SCOTUS decides to hear the case.
In Wisconsin, following a recount in its two most populous counties, the state’s Supreme Court declined to take up a Trump campaign lawsuit seeking to invalidate up to 221,000 ballots. The campaign filed lawsuits in lower courts, which were then combined. The fate of that case is currently pending.
