Amy Coney Barrett disappoints Trump supporters, votes to strike down Texas election challenge

For weeks, millions of President Donald Trump’s supporters had faith that U.S. Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett would be the one person on the High Court who might actually have the courage to give Trump’s legal efforts to overturn the election a chance to be heard.

According to the Daily Caller, that was unfortunately not the case, as Barrett was one of the justices who joined the majority in rejecting a highly-anticipated election-related case brought to the Supreme Court by the state of Texas, on behalf of Attorney General Ken Paxton. 

At the crux of the Texas lawsuit, which was supported by 17 Republican-led states and over 100 Republican lawmakers in addition to the president himself, were accusations that the defendant states of Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin all made illegal changes to their state’s voting laws prior to the 2020 election.

“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,” the Texas suit read.

Because of those alleged violations, Texas sought relief in the form of invalidating the results in those states — a notion that the Supreme Court completely disagreed with, as they rejected the case almost as quickly as it was filed.

The High Court ruled that not only did the Texas case lack standing, but it also failed to provide “judicially cognizable interest in the manner in which another State conducts its elections.”

Only two Justices — Samuel Alito and Clarence Thomas — dissented with the court’s decision, which meant that all three Supreme Court appointees under the president failed to come through. However, according to NPR, the two dissenting Justices would have allowed the state to file the complaint but wouldn’t have granted the relief sought in the case.

Most experts have agreed that even though the Texas case was a longshot, it was likely the last-ditch effort for Trump and his supporters to upend the results of the 2020 election in any of the battleground states.

On the other hand, the year 2020 has provided plenty of twists and turns that nobody saw coming, so at the end of the day, this situation truly might not be over quite yet.

I don’t know why everyone thinks Barrett is a conservitive. She taught in one of the most liberal schools in the country. Notre Dame is no longer a catholic run school. It’s president.declared it a secular institution. And the catholic church just shut up.

The 5 conservatives on the Supreme Court should know very well that if Biden gets in and the democrats control the senate, Biden will pack the Supreme Court and they will become irrelevant. Is this what they want?

The members of the Supreme Court are not living in a vacuum. They must know of the wrong doing of the states in the petition. The Supreme Court should take on the issue without the Texas petition. Stacking the deck, changing ballots, trucks moving ballots across state lines. The list goes on. The Supreme Court simply didn’t do the job. The election was stolen and the data is there to prove it. I hope they are satisfied with their actions in this item. Robert Reilly is right on the mark.

As for the SCROTUS I don’t care if it is standing or setting on it fat dead a–. A part of the courts job is oversite, and if someone or some state is violating the constitution, then the court should step in, whether there is a complaint or brief filed in a lower court or the high court directly. If the court is not doing this then the court is not doing the do diligence it is suppose to do, to protect the constitution. And if the court is not going to do it job then it is up to we the people to do the job, and if we have to do the job then we just as well fire the court, we are the only ones that can. It makes no difference if a judge is conservative or liberal if the judge does not follow the constitution. The constitution was not put there to protect the legislature, the administration, or the court, it was put there to protect we the people, by putting in guide lines for the government to follow. When the government does not want to follow, then the government has to go. I think that the court gets so tongue tired with the literal meaning that it forgets what it job is.

You are right. Their duty is to support the constitution. The states violated the Constitution. What good is the Supreme Court, if they refuse to do their job.

I agree with you 100%. If President Trump won’t use the the powers he has to STOP this fraud then the responsibility falls on “We the people. “

It is a sad day for America. And especially sad for conservatives & christians. Our country will never be the same; it will be overrun with illegals, criminals & lazy bums. Our children & grandchildren will live in a different world than one we grew up in. I hope we have people who will fight to keep us safe & value our country. Don’t give up president Trump. Shame on you Joe.

I’m just not so sure the Supreme Court was wrong on this because maybe this would have opened up Pandora’s Box regarding states’ rights vs Federal? Just asking. It’s NOT over! We must continue to fight or we may have to shoot our way back to liberty before this mess is over!

The deep state is operating at every level. That’s one of the reasons they feel so confident in feeding us such blatant and even contradictory lies. We’ve been warned for decades this totalitarian leadership was coming. Far too many folks had and continue to hold the belief: “The government would never do that. – It’s we the people”. While those who knew what was really happening around the world were labeled crazy, paranoid and pretty much snubbed. Meanwhile, Joe-Voter continued to sit comfortably in his pan of cool water. Despite losing rights and control over his life each time the heat was increased, he continued to make excuses for trading freedoms for the illusion of safety to himself, and refused to accept any notion the world could be anything other than what politicians, medical & legal professionals, corporations, the large news sources, the media . . . have told him. Using outright lies as well as blocking relevant information. With the water starting to boil, more Joe-Voters are researching where the heat is coming from, only to discover it was their own hand that turned the heat up, and apparently broke the handle off.

Amen – my wife and I were talking the other day and we had the question for each other – do you feel more free than you did while we were growing up? The answer was not in any remote way. This is truly sad….it may take fighting at some point in the future. We are retired but we are excellent at fighting. I just can’t believe the Supreme Court has let us down. Again – so sad… wife is from Texas and I was adopted and moved there when I was three so I grew up there. AOC said that the Red States would not survive without the Blue States. Shows what kind of moron she is – where is she going to get meat, grains, etc. from? And I guess she won’t need oil for anything – guess what – that lipstick as well as other cosmetics comes from petroleum. Again – what a moron. Her and the Supreme Court – what morons.

Today the demoncrap electors made Sickening Biden’s election official. Even though I know that God is in control I am still heartsick and concerned about what could happen to this country. If Biden/Harris get in the White House they will probably ruin the country, then all the demoncrap will blame President Trump for it. I knew that the domoncrap was crap but the last four years have shown just how SORRY AND LOWDOWN they really are. I pray that Almighty God will intervene and save us from destruction.

Are you all nuts supporting this maniac Trump…?
It is better than a nut that can’t remember who his old bag is even if she is a demonicrat.
It is better than a nut that would put a chain around your neck even if you are a demonicrat.
It is better than a nut that will give your job to an illegal even if you are a demonicrat.
It is better than a nut that would sell your kids to human traffickers even if you are a demonicrat.
It is better than a nut that would put you in jail for protecting your family even if you are demonicrat.
It is better than a nut that take your car an let you walk 20 miles to work even if you are a demonicrat.
It is better than a nut that would put you in the army and send you off to war even if you are a demonicrat.
It is better than a nut that would give vaccine to the world before your family even if you are a demonicrat.
It is better than a nut that would smell your little girls hair even if she is a demonicrat.
At least this nut knows where he is, where he is going, how to get there, and how to get back.
This is to much information for a demonicrat to handle. They go to school to be brainwashed, not really learn anything. So when they have to do something that requires any thinking they don’t know how.

We The People thank God for his GRACE.
This country is so full of greed and power that people will say and do anything to get it.
Only Gods light will show all the darkness. Darkness cant hide from God and he will and can
give his people victory. Prayers are so important. The victory will come and all the ones that have thought
they were above the law will soon know different.

The SC Justices totally ABDICATED their DUTY and OATH to uphold the Constitution of the United States. I’ve read that they were afraid their decision would cause an insurrection. So what?!?! The military is primed and ready to put down any kind of uprising. THEIR job is simply to judge righteous judgement. They have failed miserable. No one is shocked at Snake Roberts or the three amigos. But Gorsuch? Barrett? I’m not surprised at Kavanaugh, I figured he was squishy in the beginning based on some of his previous rulings. But the real killers are Alito and Thomas, who said they would have heard the case but not granted the relief. They pandered to try to keep their image as “Constitutionalists”. But if their minds were already made up not to grant the relief, then why try to cover by dissenting?? And if they politely told Paxton how to refile, why hasn’t he done so. Apparently they objected to the word “leave”. So leave it out and resubmit immediately. I can’t help but think it is a lie that they told them they could refile. The top lawyers and AGs of 20 states would have noticed any discrepancies before filing. Something is rotten in DC, and it’s not Trump, it is the swamp creatures, to which NINE justices belong. Barrett reminds me of Mutt Romney, who became a backstabber the instant he was elected (after begging Trump to endorse him, which Trump graciously did). I so hoped heads would roll. I guess there is a little time, but precious little. Tribunals, get rolling!!!

This is why we need Term Limits, get these Traitors off the court, and send them back to the real world.

If all supposed 5 Conservatives, including Roberts, had voted Republican, Trump would have won!

All three justices that were appointed by Trump need to go. The SC appointees SHOULD not be there for life….8 years at best
