A Switch in Time Might Save Nine but Doom 300 Million

This week the Supreme Court decided that they didn’t want to touch any of the election cases that finally made their way to them calling them moot with the election over.

In one respect this is not a surprise in that the modern era the court tends to prefer to punt whenever possible. Furthermore with the threat of court packing they seem to have decided to go the way of Justice Owen Roberts whose sudden switch in terms of his voting pattern during the FDR when he was threating to pack the court, era removed his desire to follow through with his scheme far more than any backlash from the public.

But the feckless move to prevent the Biden Administration from court packing will have a huge cost in four years.

It’s axiomatic that when you reward behavior you get more of it and we had plenty of election irregularities last time around to say the least. Because they were so glaring and obvious the courts doing their best to duck these issues (or in the case of the Stacked PA court simply ignoring the law) avoided ruling on the merits of the various cases using issues like standing to dismiss said suits over and over.

Many of us who were outraged by all of this, and particularly outraged by the court not willing to rule before the electoral count however figured the various suits would continue through to courts and were willing to give this election a mulligan figuring the cases would eventually be ruled on their merits and the fraud prevented.

For the republic to be saved this was vital. If I am wrong (and the evidence overwhelmingly suggests I’m not) and the election wasn’t stolen it was vital to demonstrate this to the millions like me who think otherwise, if it WAS stolen (and I maintain that it is) then it was vital to make sure that it doesn’t happen again.

Now we know that is not going to be the case and we can expect the same pattern in the next cycle when suits concerning fraud before the election are dismissed because the injury has not taken place and suits after the election dismissed because they should have been filed before and said suits making it to SCOTUS being dismissed over jurisdiction or being moot.

This means that tens of millions of Americans, many of them heavily armed are going to go into the next election with the assumption that:

  1. The election will be rigged or stolen
  2. The courts will either abet this stealing or ignore it

I can’t think of anything that the court could have done to make an actual civil war more likely than this.

Over the last month we have seen a consorted effort to sell a false narrative that a bunch of unarmed protesters (with a nice sprinkle of Antifa to goad them on and $ provided by the networks for those who did the goading) taking selfies were a violent “insurrection”.

Thanks to the fecklessness of the court the chances of us seeing the real thing in the next few years with actual armed men and women ready to fight have increased dramatically.

My they be happy with their choices

  1. the blood of tyrants … anyone who allows the US to devolve into a civil war they they could have prevented is a tyrant …

  2. It’s a surreal feeling. Suddenly we find ourselves living in a banana republic. Yet that’s not the country I live in…. my country is better than that. WAY better. So where do I live then? Is my country real? Or is their country real? It’s a surreal feeling. But I repeat myself.

    Perhaps it’s a feeling like the Star Trek folks experienced when they only got partially beamed back and then existed in limbo, between the worlds. Do you remember that episode, where they were desperately trying to get the attention of their fellow crew members? But no one could see them…. That’s how I feel: no matter what I say, no matter how much energy I pour into the attempt, my countrymen in their alternative reality cannot see or hear me. But it is they who are lost….

    I had hoped that the Supreme Court would carefully try to bridge the two worlds back together. Clarence Thomas made a valiant and sensible effort. But only two of the justices concurred. What? How can this have happened to our beautiful country?

    On November 4th, an overwhelming number of my countrymen walked through some kind of looking glass straight into la la land—banana land, believing these lies. And the rest of us are left out here in this great America the Beautiful we love wondering, what do we do now? Is there any way but violence left? What roads are left to us now? If politics is downstream from culture, is that the best answer now? To fight mightily to transform the culture, every day, every way—peacefully? Is it far too late for that?

    How can the Supreme Court justices be so corrupt and cowardly? I thought Amy Coney Barrett loves the Constitution? —Her words, spoken convincingly: “I LOVE the Constitution’, she said. What in the world is going on here? Do the justices not know that a person deciding a case needs to stand unflinchingly for the truth? And for the Constitution?

    Or else things will just get far far worse…. As you say, rewarding bad behavior just brings more of it. This “covid” election fraud needs to be nipped in the bud. But these justices have now poured miracle gro onto the problem…. And here comes HR1, ready to burst into codified election fraud flower.

    You believe that they are bowing to this election travesty so that they can still get some conservative wins? Prevent the court packing? That does seem like a plausible explanation. It’s kind of a twisted version of “the end justifies the means”. The threatened scary ending — court packing — justifies the ugly means: shamefully turning away from massive election fraud. How very foolish, to take such a cowardly road. Oh my poor country.
