On Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court rejected a number of cases regarding the 2020 election, including an appeal from Republicans challenging a Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruling that allowed mail-in ballots received up to three days after Election Day to be counted in order to make up for challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic.
In response, conservative Justice Clarence Thomas wrote a strongly worded dissent against the court’s decision to throw out the case.
“That decision to rewrite the rules seems to have affected too few ballots to change the outcome of any federal election. But that may not be the case in the future,” Thomas wrote. “These cases provide us with an ideal opportunity to address just what authority nonlegislative officials have to set election rules, and to do so well before the next election cycle. The refusal to do so is inexplicable.”
“One wonders what this Court waits for,” wrote Thomas at the end of his 11-page dissent. “We failed to settle this dispute before the election, and thus provide clear rules. Now we again fail to provide clear rules for future elections.
“The decision to leave election law hidden beneath a shroud of doubt is baffling,” he continued. “By doing nothing, we invite further confusion and erosion of voter confidence. Our fellow citizens deserve better and expect more from us.”
“I respectfully dissent,” Thomas concluded.
Thomas and two other conservative justices, Samuel Alito and Neil Gorsuch, wanted to hear the cases, whereas Chief Justice John Roberts sided with the liberal justices–Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor, and Elena Kagan–in rejecting them. According to Politico, newly sworn-in Justice Amy Coney Barrett opted not to participate in that vote, saying she had not had enough time to study the issue.
This is the Second Time Roberts weighed in an opposition to the Election fraud claims. Clearly, as is was a Federal election, the SCOTUS has jurisdiction. And there could be no greater case for which the Supreme court should review. It not only effects the Public interest, but the entire Republic.
So what is Chief Justice Roberts object?
One needs only to look at the disclosed Jeffery Epstein flight logs to know that someone, most likely the Democrats, have some pretty significant dirt on him. Either that or he knows that if he incurs their ire they would put him through the ringer on in, maybe even go for impeachment. The Republican’s, being the bunch of pussies that they are, will just let it slide, again.
