Then Everybody Sued Everybody

Texas Lawsuit

Now that Republican governors and legislatures in a majority of swing states have refused to take the easy win that the orgy of election fraud evidence and the US Constitution offered on a silver plate, Texas is stepping in to fulfill my prediction.

Courtesy of The Daily Caller:
Republican Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton filed a suit in the Supreme Court Tuesday against Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin over their administration of the presidential election.

“Our Country stands at an important crossroads,” the suit reads. “Either the Constitution matters and must be followed, even when some officials consider it inconvenient or out of date, or it is simply a piece of parchment on display at the National Archives. We ask the Court to choose the former.”

“A dark cloud hangs over the 2020 Presidential election.”

Paxton argues that pandemic-era changes to election procedures violated federal law and is asking the Supreme Court to block the states from voting in the Electoral College.

“These flaws cumulatively preclude knowing who legitimately won the 2020 election and threaten to cloud all future elections,” the suit alleges.

“Using the COVID-19 pandemic as a justification, government officials in the defendant states of Georgia, Michigan and Wisconsin, and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, usurped their legislatures’ authority and unconstitutionally revised their state’s election statutes.”

Paxton says the states used executive orders to change the election process and hurt voting integrity by not “protecting” signature verification and witness requirements. The suit alleges the states failed to segregate ballots that would allow an “accurate analysis to determine which ballots were cast in conformity with the legislatively set rules and which were not.”
And they're not alone.

Do Texas and the other plaintiffs have a case? I'm no lawyer, but based on the case summaries and precedents from prior SCOTUS rulings, the answer appears to be yes.

GA

MI

PA

WI

Will the case succeed? Will civil warfare be prevented by civil lawfare? The outcome rests with Republicans, who have so far proven utterly worthless at stopping their base's disenfranchisement.

What was true in 2015 remains true now: Only the GOP can stop Donald Trump.

  1. It's possible we are now in the process of exhausting all possibilities for peaceful recourse in order to meet that requirement for waging a just war.

  2. This was my thought as well: This is our last and best chance to avoid war, if Trump wants it, or Bananamerica, if he doesn't.

    The ideal outcome of the case would involve allowing the House to pick, leading to a very probable Trump presidency.

    1. Trump won the election, and you can be sure our elites know it. The just resolution would be for SCOTUS to throw out all mail-in ballots in the swing states.

    2. Brian’s remedy, while just and prudent, is unlikely to be the one picked by the court. Following the same legal philosophy as “better ten guilty men go free than one innocent man hang” courts are very reticent to trow out ballots en masse lest they disenfranchise actual legitimate votes, regardless of how strong the evidence for historic mass mail in voter fraud. Cowardice to be sure, but it’s also what we’re dealing with. Paxton knows this, and so the proposed remedies in the TX lawsuit avoids backing SCOTUS into this particularly undesirable corner

  3. So I see Biden and Harris giving press conferences from the "Office of the President Elect". Maybe I missed something in civics class, but where is that in the Constitution?

    1. As you recall, the MSM has the power to create law, interpret law, and determine who is guilty of breaking the law. They have graciously allowed the police to continue enforcing the law. As the MSM has declared there is an office of the president elect, now there is one.

    2. They have invented a new form of government: the papara-cracy. Isn't progress grand?

    3. Biden isn't even officially President-elect yet.

      A fake office for a fake candidate.

    4. I commented on this to a fellow at work the other day, when a TV talking head mentioned Biden's official "status". This fellow was quite certain that the "office" of President-elect was a real thing.

    5. The same was done for Obama. a shield with "Office of the President Elect" hanging on the lecturns he spoke from.

  4. Now if only...if only... my consistently left-wing state could go under the voting practices microscope.
    I bet that we'd find lots of these kinds of practices in the People's Democratic Republic of Seattle, which then dictates to the rest of the state what Washington gets.

    1. I have never been to Washington state, but because of a company I used to work for and the program I worked on for them, I can tell you that Seattle is as corrupt as they come. We sold licenses for states to use our ombudsman tracker. All our clients were states except one. King County, WA, had enough complaints about its government officials they needed their own license.

  5. And don't verb nouns.
