Massive Texas Lawsuit Could Save Trump

Texas, joined by many other states, is taking their fight to the SCOTUS.

On Tuesday, the State of Texas filed a lawsuit in the Supreme Court against Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. The suit alleged that because these states conducted elections that violated their own laws, they tainted the integrity of the vote, something that damaged not only their own citizens, but also the citizens in other states. Because this is an intelligent, powerful case, it’s no surprise that eight other states have already joined the litigation.

To date, we’ve seen a multiplicity of lawsuits filed, although, significantly, none has come before the Supreme Court for substantive review. Courts in various states, however, have proven resistant to these suits.

As I noted here, partisan judges are issuing what I will politely call “garbage” decisions. Judges are refusing to consider the evidence, with only one Nevada court attempting to do so. Instead, they make variations of the argument that, if courts were to consider Trump’s claims, they would run the risk of “disenfranchising” Biden voters.

That is a singularly dishonest argument. Disenfranchisement occurs when people are deprived of the right to vote. No one was deprived here. What Trump is doing, with his request that every legal vote count, is asking that courts invalidate illegal votes. You cannot disenfranchise an illegal voter, whether that “voter” is dead, a computer algorithm, or a form filled out in a Chinese print shop.

Do you know what happens when you invalidate fraudulent votes and count only legal votes? You identify the winner and loser in an election, as has happened in America since 1792. Those who voted for the losing candidate were not disenfranchised; they just voted for the losing candidate.

The Texas lawsuit argues that the four defendant states changed their mail-in voting rules without going through the constitutional, legislative process. By doing so, they assured illegal mail-in votes, meaning that all votes under the new “rules” were illegal from the get-go. These invalid votes override the will of those who legitimately cast votes, tainting the national election.

After all, we are a federation of states. While the individual states control their own election rules, each state is affected by the election outcomes in the other states. Texas attorney general Ken Paxton’s statement about the lawsuit perfectly sums up the correct legal standard:

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton today filed a lawsuit against Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin in the United States Supreme Court. The four states exploited the COVID-19 pandemic to justify ignoring federal and state election laws and unlawfully enacting last-minute changes, thus skewing the results of the 2020 General Election. The battleground states flooded their people with unlawful ballot applications and ballots while ignoring statutory requirements as to how they were received, evaluated and counted.

“Trust in the integrity of our election processes is sacrosanct and binds our citizenry and the States in this Union together. Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin destroyed that trust and compromised the security and integrity of the 2020 election. The states violated statutes enacted by their duly elected legislatures, thereby violating the Constitution. By ignoring both state and federal law, these states have not only tainted the integrity of their own citizens’ vote, but of Texas and every other state that held lawful elections,” said Attorney General Paxton. “Their failure to abide by the rule of law casts a dark shadow of doubt over the outcome of the entire election. We now ask that the Supreme Court step in to correct this egregious error.”

Elections for federal office must comport with federal constitutional standards. For presidential elections, each state must appoint its electors to the electoral college in a manner that complies with the Constitution. The Electors Clause requirement that only state legislatures may set the rules governing the appointment of electors and elections and cannot be delegated to local officials. The majority of the rushed decisions, made by local officials, were not approved by the state legislatures, thereby circumventing the Constitution.

Because this is a suit between two states, the Supreme Court has original jurisdiction. It’s also a factually pure case, which does not require looking at the reams of evidence demonstrating fraud.

If you want a good overview about why the case is really huge, Jay Sekulow, one of America’s most brilliant constitutional lawyers, and his team at the American Center for Law and Justice explain the procedure and the substance:

No wonder it appears that eight other states have joined the case (Arkansas, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Kentucky, North Carolina, and South Carolina). The only thing that remains to be seen is whether the Supreme Court justices are willing to show the necessary courage to ensure that the will of the people, and not the will of the corruptocrats, prevails in this election.

    • They did not uphold the Constitution as they threw it out. Even the 3 appointed by President Trump voted to throw I out. They were given lifetime jobs by the President and wouldn’t even stand by him in this.
      Seems they might be a part of the Deep State as well. I am VERY, VERY Disappointed in the Supreme Court

    • He is a very smart man. He went after the Constitutionality of it instead of the fraud way. The laws of the Constitution is much stronger. I read both the lawsuit and read the 14th amendment and Articles of the Constitution concerning the elections. I think it is perfectly done. Also everyone keeps talking about dates for this and that. The only date in the Constitution that is set in stone is January 20 as the inauguration day.

  1. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you to Texas, Thank you to Texas Secretary of State Texas Governor and everyone who sent this to the Supreme Court. You all are true heroes and our constitutional way of life. And thank you to each and every state that stands with you and supports this action

    • Yes, but the Supreme Court threw it out. I do not think they even read the affidavits that were signed. I am VERY, VERY Disappointed in the Supreme Court and the 3 new judges that President Trump appointed, that voted to throw it out. They were given lifetime jobs by the President and couldn’t even stand by him on this. I had hoped the Supreme Court would stand by the constitution, but it looks like they are part of the crooks in the deep state, too.

  2. Ken Paxon , is the man that’s going to Save Trump’s Bacon. He is one of kind of the fights for what is True. TRUMP 2020 in the WINNER of the 2020 Election. The SCOTUS will side with President Trump !!

  3. The fraud and corruption of the commicrats is unbelievable
    How could anybody in their right mind even believe that this election is not crooked
    I would not be afraid to say that if I was guessing the Chinese have a hand in it to since according to the articles I have read Biden is a little to friendly with them
    The United States was founded because we wanted our freedom communism and someone else making all our laws for us
    We wanted to make our own
    Commicrats want to take what thousands of patriots have given their lives for and now it looks as though we may be on the road to loosing it all because of what this crooked bunch is doing to brainwash the citizens of this nation

  4. “As I noted here, partisan judges are issuing what I will politely call “garbage” decisions. Judges are refusing to consider the evidence, with only one Nevada court attempting to do so.

    Seriously, one of the more scathing rebukes came from a Federal Judge in Pennsylvania who was APPOINTED BY TRUMP where he basically said, to file a legal suite, you need just cause, NOT just because.

    This Texas action is nothing more than adding dollars to Donnie “Tiny Hands” Trump’s final con on his cult members.

  5. Voters in all states should contact their attorney general and make their views known. The ones who have not been corrupted will join.

  6. Once Soros and the fascists convert Texas from Red to Blue …. IT’S OVER!!!!!
    Thank God I don’t have that many years left!!!
    But if there is life after death, I want a front row seat so I can look down and laugh!!!
    I might even elbow some leftists and say to them, “See what your liberal mindset did to America?”
    But then they’ll just deny it …. old habits carry over after death!!! lol lol

  7. He is a very smart man. He went after the Constitutionality of it instead of the fraud way. The laws of the Constitution is much stronger.

  8. Absolutely Behind you! This cannot be allowed, no cheating or outside influence and dirty dealings as Obviously has occurred here.

    The rest of the country had better take heed; either get it straight Legally, or we will simply take to arms. Enough Complacency

  9. The Supreme Court has one basic job, to uphold the Constitution, and that is exactly what they did when the tossed the bogus Texas suit.

  10. If the Supreme Court don’t step up and correct the wrong 😑 from the election than the American people is going to step up and do their job. They don’t want that to happen cause we all know what will happen wi the American people steps up and fix it. Not going be a peaceful walk in the park but an overthrow that our country will be vulnerable for a take over by other country 😕😳. I fear that is what going to happen
