Supreme Court Rejects Texas Dems: All
Eligible Voters Cannot Vote By Mail

Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 1/13/2021 2:53:16 PM

On Monday, the Supreme Court ruled for the state of Texas and against the Texas Democratic Party, as they decided to leave in place a lower court ruling that rejected Democrats’ attempts to let all eligible voters in Texas vote by mail. (Tweet) As Reuters explained, “Texas state law makes mail-in ballots available only for people age 65 and older or for voters who meet specific disability guidelines. The state Democratic Party and some voters sued the Republican-governed state, arguing that by treating voters differently by age, the Texas law violated the U.S. Constitution’s 26th Amendment guarantee of the right to vote for American citizens age 18 and above.”

First, the ruling was made by the 5th Circuit Court, not the Supreme Joke. Second, Chief Just-Us Roberts must not have been able to convince one of the five Justices (not Just-Uses like Roberts, Kagen et al) to go along with some hair brain socialist Just-Us judge in Texas.

To my untrained eye, this looks like a little CYA to bolster credibility. This positive ruling will have (had) no effect on the election. A ruling on the Pa case might have affected the election. Timing is everything.

Had the Republicans sued for injunctive relief before the election in the states where it was going on, Trump would be inaugurated next Tuesday. He kept warning that the mail-in ballots would allow for fraud and he was right. Afterwards, the horse was out of the barn.

It’s really up to the State legislatures to pass and uphold election laws and procedures that most rational people in the USA believe are fair, and have integrity, that cannot be covertly compromised, as many millions of people believe occurred through mass mail-in balloting and through crooked software installed in computerized voting machines in the recent election. That’s really what undermines democracy.

Aides to President-elect Biden say that he will propose another massive pandemic relief bill costing $2 trillion dollars. It will include $2,000 individual checks for taxpayers.Biden will outline more of the plan later on Thursday, but Senate Democrats are also talking seriously about merging pandemic relief with a completely unrelated infrastructure bill. It’s likely the total cost for both measures together will exceed $3 trillion.Moreover, Democrats are discussing ways to use budget reconciliation to pass most of their legislation.

The New York Times falsely claimed in a Tuesday piece on the death of Sheldon Adelson that the United States's decision to move its Israeli embassy to Jerusalem "led to unrest across the Middle East."The piece by Jeremy Peters and Shane Goldmacher argues that the recently deceased Jewish billionaire's push for moving the embassy had disastrous consequences. "The Adelsons were among those who helped persuade Mr. Trump to lean into a hard-line pro-Israel stance, which led to his decision in 2017 to relocate the American embassy to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv," the article reads.

Dershowitz circled back on his vow that he would help Trump if he were to face another impeachment, telling the Boston Herald on Thursday, "I am not going to be (involved)."The famed lawyer, who defended Trump in his first impeachment trial, called the second move pushed by House Democrats "political theater" and said, "There really is no room for a lawyer (to get involved)."While Dershowitz said he believes Trump's speech during his Jan. 6 rally was protected by the First Amendment,

According to Merry, Trump succeeded in his efforts to change trade policy, keep us out of wars, and protest the Left’s attack on “Western heritage.” But now Republicans must push beyond their disgraced and deeply flawed standard-bearer to remake themselves under new leadership: In order to stay in the game they must do what Trump could not–namely, fashion a political dialectic and a mode of expression that keeps the Trump coalition intact while ousting

President Trump was impeached a second time by the US House of Representatives on Wednesday in a largely party-line vote that saw a handful of Republicans join Democrats to blame the outgoing commander-in-chief for sparking last week’s Capitol siege. The measure reached 217 “yea” votes shortly after 4:20 p.m. to make Trump the only president to be impeached twice. The final vote was 232-197, with 10 Republicans crossing party lines and four Republicans not voting when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) announced around 4:35 p.m. No members of the GOP voted in 2019 to impeach Trump the first time.

The New York Times says if one mask works, maybe two will be twice as nice. “Football coaches do it. President-elects do it. Even science-savvy senators do it. As cases of the coronavirus continue to surge on a global scale, some of the nation’s most prominent people have begun to double up on masks — a move that researchers say is increasingly being backed up by data,” the paper writes.

President Trump potentially faces a torrent of criminal charges when he leaves office, including charges linked to the deadly insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, making prosecutors worry that he is a flight risk. Mr. Trump’s real estate empire extends to multiple luxury properties in countries that don’t have extradition treaties with the United States. And Mr. Trump himself publicly mused in October that he’d leave the country if he lost to Democrat Joseph R. Biden. Douglas McNabb, a private attorney with expertise in international extradition defense, said that if criminal charges are brought, Mr. Trump fits the bill for becoming a fugitive from justice.
