Clarence Thomas delivers thundering rebuke after SCOTUS rejects PA election cases

US Supreme Court justice Clarence Thomas released a powerful dissent this week following the high court’s decision to turn down a Republican challenge to the Pennsylvania state court decision that allowed ballots three days after the 2020 presidential election.

Despite acknowledging he believed the case was not significant enough to turn the state’s electoral votes to Donald Trump, Thomas looked toward future concerns. “That decision to rewrite the rules seems to have affected too few ballots to change the outcome of any federal election. But that may not be the case in the future.

Thomas continued:

One wonders what the Court waits for. We failed to settle this dispute before the election, and thus provide clear rules. Now we again fail to provide clear rules for future elections. The decision to leave election law hidden beneath a shroud of doubt is baffling. By doing nothing, we invite further confusion and erosion of voter confidence. Our fellow citizens deserve better and expect more of us. I respectfully dissent.

Thomas was not alone in his dissent. He was joined by Neil Gorsuch and Samuel Alito in his words that spoke out against the court’s decision, with Alito adding:

There is ‘reasonable expectation’ that the parties will face the same question in the future. And that the question will evade future pre-election review, just as it did in these cases. These cases call out for review, and I respectfully dissent from the Court’s decision to deny certiorari.

In a separate case, the US Supreme Court also turned down a second Pennsylvania legal case regarding changed mail-in ballot rules. Both cases emphasized illegal actions against then President Donald Trump that favored Democrats.

These cases and related activities in Pennsylvania led Trump and his supporters to continue arguing he won the state as well as the national election. Many Trump backers still believe the voting spikes in the early morning hours following the election have remained unexplained.

Other disputed states in the 2020 presidential election included Arizona, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Georgia, among others. Trump has already declared plans for legal cases in some states.

In other states, such as Georgia, Trump and supporters have stated they will push for new conservative candidates. Georgia Governor Brian Kemp became a particular target, both following the presidential election and in the Georgia Senate runoff in January. The Senate runoff resulted in two additional Democrat Senators winning. The shift created a 50-50 split in the Senate, with Vice President Kamala Harris serving as the tie-breaking vote.

When Thomas and other conservative Supreme Court justices speak out, you know it’s time to pay attention. Voter integrity will remain a central issue in the upcoming midterm elections, presenting challenges important to the future of our democracy.

  1. When the alleged last line of defense fails to be the last line of defense what remains? I do not wish to speculate what may transpire when the American public can no longer rely on the Supreme Court to do its job and at least hear the arguments.
    To deny the public from having the opportunity to have the arguments heard is tantamount to allowing a dictatorship to do whatever they want and is completely contrary to the Constitutions intent!

    Pray we do not devolve into what appears to be possibly an undesirable action!

    1. What remains is it becomes into the hands of the people. “Responsibility” is something that government and the courts now including the supreme court DOES NOT UNDERSTAND.

      If you leave this gross miscarriage of our republic unaddressed – the RESULT WILL BE undesireable and definitive for many in leadership roles and permanent — but make no mistake most effective.

      1. Mr. Phillips….appears like money changed hands somewhere?? The Supreme Court lost its credibility from the day Pres. Geo. W. Bush appointed an outsider to Chief Justice….breaking years of tradition.

    2. My Fellow American, truer words were never spoken. This is what I sent to “Mitch McConnell after he ambushed Donald Trump after the Impeachment. ((( Sen. McConnell: You must not be aware of what WE THE PEOPLE, feel and believe. There are 75 million of us who have been totally DISENFRANCHISED of our Voice, our Vote, because Judges and our Supreme Court, and Republicans like you have been voted into office have basically stated that approximately 16 million ILLEGAL votes by multiple ballots, people who voted from the grave, people who voted illegally because of their age, and of course the ILLEGALS who voted without being a Citizen, or who those who were not even registered to Vote. If you do not believe that, then give President Trump the opportunity to offer his proof to an open and free venue, and allow our Voices to be heard. That is our Constitutional Right, that WE THE PEOPLE are the true voice of these United States of America. Not this Communistic corrupt form of politics that is being forced down upon us now. If you are a true American, prove it. )))

      1. Well said. We are owed our day in court, by the CONSTITUTION! If Roberts doesn’t believe it, that doesn’t matter. What matters is having our voices and concerns brought before a court to be fairly, AND PUBLICALLY PRESENTED! Otherwise they have damaged our democracy PERMANENTLY AS WE CAN NEVER TRUST THEM AGAIN!

  2. Let this old man call everyone’s attention to 2nd. Thessalonians 2:1–12. These very things are taking place. “That man of sin, son of perdition (destruction) has been sitting himself up in the temple of God now for several decades. Showing himself that he is God and demanding worshipped as God.” The temple of God in this world is the human body. Those who call themselves Christian have turned unto fables and rejecting Truth. This has been and continues to be the direct cause of spiritual sleep. “When the Comforter, which is the Holy Spirit is come, He will lead you into ALL TRUTH.” The false prophets and false teachers have turned millions and millions down the road to destruction. WAKE UP PEOPLE. SEEK GOD WHILE THE DAY OF SALVATION CONTINUES. BEWARE THE “DARKNESS COVERING THE EARTH AND GROSS DARKNESS THE PEOPLE.” (Isaiah 60:2. Paul warned us of these days as did our Redeemer. WAKE UP! Our national sins has come due.

  3. Pelosi is right, we cannot move on until we have impeached ” Nancy Pelosi “. For the following crimes.
    1. Gross incompetence for failing to take care of the needs of the people.
    2. Negligence in the performance of her duties in protecting the people, the country, and the constitution.
    3. The injury and yes the death of citizens while she played politics with the stimulus relief bill.
    4 The use of her position as speaker of the house to conduct personal vendettas against people.
    I could go on, but I think that there is enough here to do to her what she wants to do to others. She is a sick demented person with no respect for anyone. Her obsession for power, and her neglect has cost a great many lives, and the lively hood of a great many citizens, and for this reason she needs to be removed from congress.

    Are, you kidding with a Socrat government. I would laugh all the way to Dizzy Land. To think that with this administration they would do any thing ethical or have any integrity, and as far as unity is concerned the only unity they want is with the Chinese$$$$$. Goes for Closet Dems too “Rhinos”.

    McConnel said that he has @[email protected] that the dems will not end the filibuster. Now we know that McConnel is unfit for office. Everyone knows that the dems are communists and communists liars, and anyone dumb enough to believe them is a fool. In this case an old fool.

    1. Since they aren’t going to do anything to Pelosi, could they at least make her wear a bigger mask with a piece added to fit into her mouth.

      1. no I want the fingeger tied down or cut of she act like she is correcting everyone shaking her finger, Jim you where also right

    2. Pelosi’s constituents can recall her and i don’t know why they haven’t unless they have been threatened. Strange to me the old lady still in the house. All these years and she still is brainless, ruthless, arrogant, vile, vicious and venomous person I have ever witnessed to hold office.

    3. You might add to your comment. Her planning ahead of time the attack on the capitol and refusing any extra help for the meager amount of police on duty. We still have cities burning and they have military and razor wire protecting them. Also not even seeing to iy our troops guarding them had food and a place to sleep other than the cold damp floor of a parking garage.

      1. It is past time for term limits to be imposed. If our legislators are not willing to “police” themselves, then it is time we voted every single one of them out of a job and forced them to do some constructive work, like cleaning up bedpans for the sick covid patients.

  4. I feel that the Supreme Court is in part responsible for 1/6!!!! If they had the guts to look into the alleged voter fraud…whether to prove it true or false…the people who believe that the election was fraudulent might have accepted the results of the election. the cowardice of the court shows to most there was a lot to hide from the citizens of the USA

    1. You are correct. They share in the blame with the FBI for refusing to investigate Voter Fraud which they claim they do on their website. I hope they move Roberts out of his office so they can pack 3 more in there.

      1. Supreme Court Justices are in their position for live. There is no replacement until they retire or die. I don’t want the courts packed with radical Democrats because American citizens would never get a fair shake in the court system.

    2. Democrat Secretaries of State and partisan judges illegally changed election law????
      I wish to make a correction, everyone keeps saying the democrats changed the election laws. Well! I for one disagree, they did not change the election laws. we need to call things as they are, they could not change the laws because that is given to the state legislatures by the constitution, so the only way they could change the law was for them to break the laws. Now for those that don’t understand what this means, is that These people committed a criminal act, by circumventing the legislature. This means that these people must be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. And yes I mean the judges too, they should have known better, but they think that they wont be held accountable.

      1. Just who is going to bring these people to justice? No one has anything to gain and everything to loose.
        Career politicians, candidates in upcoming elections, future elections, etc? Every elected official is looking out for their lively hood and potential promotions to higher offices. Matt Dillion law is looking better and better.
        Simple regulations, simple enforcement, simple justice.

    3. By refusing to consider fraud, whether it occurred or not, SCOTUS is notifying us that the floodgates are open for the next election. And all those elections following.

    4. People should protest in front of the supreme court’s building with a sign saying do your job And another sigh defund these judges for not doing there job. Up hold the constitution. Who are they to decide not to hear a case from the president of the United States. Guess they think they can’t be replaced. I don’t agree There has to be a way Can we start a petition to get them out. Does anyone know?

  5. What the hell became of ELECTION DAY when people voted? During my working years I had to use absentee ballots and felt very uneasy about it. Now, as it is everybody and his cousin can vote whether that person is registered or not. And being an American citizen

  6. Breaking: Those kitty cages that Biden ragged Trump for that Obama built. Well now it would seem that Biden wants to reopen them. Yes he wants to reopen the kitty kennels, that Obama built, that he trashed Trump for using. He is not only stealing Trumps ideas he is stealing Obama’s ideas. This jerk would steal from his own mother. he is going to keep kids in cages, and separate mothers and children. This is one demented old fool. he needs to be removed from office. Such cruelty needs to be punished. Now, he is showing how he really feels about illegals. Unless of course they are voting for him.

      1. You are exactly right! We know how that illegal president tried every way he could to destroy this country. He lied and cheated to get elected. Biden told everyone that they had a very good fraud method all ready in place, it had been used for Obama. Obama practices lies and slight of hand to get what he wants, which is the destruction of America. He is not one of us and never has been. I saw a video of him bragging to his Kenya audience that he was the first Kenya born president of the US. Never mind a little thing like our constitution!

    1. We don’t need cages. Deport all illegals and close the borders. Come to America legally or don’t come. We American citizens owe illegals nothing.

  7. What happened to the conservative judges. I guess they don’t give a damn about the constitution or the American people. They will be the cause if we have a civil war. What good is a court that won’t hear the most important cases in our history

  8. What we saw on January 6, 2021 is the frustration and anger of the American people. When only 17% of the people have confidence in their government, that is a huge telling of the path we the people will embark upon. Until all laws apply to all the people, and nut just the public, we will have this anarchist push against the Washington DC elites!! What will it take to make term limits a reality? Until such time, we will see the (Pelosi’s, Biden’s, Shumer’s, McConnel’s, Collin’s, etc.) face the wrath of the public. They were just too busy trying to put blame on Trump, but is also the other 87% whom the people loathe!

  9. If I understand the supreme court it’s ok to cheat as long as you aren’t tried by a set date you get to enjoy your ill gotten gains! what is the date for bank robbery? I could use the money or does it only to anti AMERICAN colleges?

  10. Everybody on here is right. The SCOTUS should have looked at this, prior to Jan. 6th. They should be held partially responsible for what happened at our Capital. Because they allowed the Democrats to steal this election. Who paid them all off. Was it Soros? I wouldn’t doubt it. And Facebook and Twitter should also be held accountable and tried for Treason.

  11. I feel the peoples money that was used to pay for both impeachment processes against Trump should be changed to the Democratic party involved. The entire democratic party involved with lies, falsely charging, editing documents etc should be legally charged for crimes
    committed.

  12. So now we have a Supreme Court that conservatives thought were conservative but now seems to be more liberal or Trump haters at least. What is most disturbing that we continue to hear the media and dems bully and berate anyone – including Justice Thomas – for telling the truth. All we hear now is that the very idea of election fraud is false, disinformation, or a conspiracy. The media has succeeded in telling the lie long enough and with conviction to convince a lot of people that it never happened. I believe that it did. I also believe that there are millions like me. We can blame the Supreme Court for giving their stamp of approval on this scandal and opening the door for it to happen again. I don’t foresee another Republican ever getting elected. Ever.

  13. Michigan is a GOP State………….As usual the fake and illegal votes were recognized in Detroit………They threw out many votes, however, they failed to examine the rest of the State…………Between the Hunters, and NRA members, and the number of gun stores, that out number the libs…………..Our voting was hacked….

  14. God help us as we watch how this present group of clowns in charge of the white house pull us into our next civil war. A house divided cannot stand.

  15. We need to beat them like the Russians did to harp seals in the past.best them until we can’t move our arms.just like they did in portland,New York ,filthadelphia,and the rest of the cities that demopigs destroyed.wack amole

  16. They have ALL Become puppets. They and there family’s have all been threatened to do what they are told. No more constitution. Just look at everything the Democrats do.

  17. Jono, I was about to comment, verbatim, your comment. So, I’ll just say “ditto”. Your are absolutely right!!

  18. The most important part of the Supreme Court’s job is OVERSIGHT, and if someone or some state is violating the constitution, then the court should step in, whether or not 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 due diligence it is suppose to do, to protect the constitution. And if the court is not going to do its 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 administration, the legislature, or the court, it was put there to protect we the people, from the government period, by putting in guide lines for the government to follow. When the government does not want to follow, then we the people have the right and the power to change or remove the government. I think that the court gets so tongue tied with the literal meaning of the law that it forgets what the most important part of its job is. OVERSIGHT.

    Since officials in a number of states have taken it upon themselves to make laws with out the legislative bodies in those states, that the constitution gives the legislative bodies the power to do. They are ignoring the constitution, and need to be reigned in. It is past time for the SCROTUS to do its due diligence, and step in, if the SCROTUS does not wish to do so, then we the people will have to do the job of the court, and we will not need the court.
    Liberals think that they can change the laws just by wishing it, and that is wrong. That is the way kings, queens, tyrants, and dictators rule. and that is why our forefathers wrote the constitution, to keep the corrupt from getting in power in government. That is why we have come to the point of needing to set term limits and to remove immunity that protects those that would try to abuse their position by creating greater transparency in the government.

    Just like they did with the Hunter Biden scandal, the fake news and the media, are covering up what states are doing to hide the evidence. It is not only in the so-called battle ground states. The governors and judges, and election officials in these states, are violating the law and the constitution of the United States, by making laws illegally, and suppressing the evidence, by refusing to allow ballots, and machines to be investigated. As much as I hate to say this the Supreme Court is condoning this behavior, by not enforcing the constitution. This is their job, to protect the constitution by enforcing it. The Supreme Courts job of oversight does not end because a case is not filed in a lower court. There is nothing in the constitution that says the Supreme Court it’s self cannot call on the DOJ or Superior Court to take action on such matters, and for it not to do so is negligence.
    As I have said before and will repeat.

    Liberals think that they can change the laws just by wishing it, and that is wrong. That is the way kings, queens, tyrants, and dictators rule.

    The constitution was not put there to protect the administration, the legislature, or the court, it was put there to protect we the people, from the government, by putting in guide lines for the government to follow.

    WE DON’T NEED MORE GOVERNMENT, WE NEED TO CONTROL THE GOVERNMENT WE HAVE.
    ——————————————————————————————————————————–
    U.S. Code Section 242 of Title 18, Deprivation of rights under color of law, makes it a crime for a person acting under color of any law to willfully deprive a person of a right or privilege protected by the Constitution or laws of the United States.
    For the purpose of Section 242, acts under “color of law” include acts not only done by federal, state, or local officials within the their lawful authority, but also acts done beyond the bounds of that official’s lawful authority, if the acts are done while the official is purporting to or pretending to act in the performance of his/her official duties.

    A number of states have gotten the idea that they can just change laws because they want to. However that is not the case, when a state becomes a state they sign on to the constitution and the bill of rights, and all of the laws contained with in the constitution. These are the over riding laws of the land, and apply to all states, and can not be just dismissed out of hand by any state governor, state legislature, or any state official, or local officials. It does not work that way. The constitution and the bill of rights can not be changed by any government body be it federal, state, or local. Changes to the constitution and the bill of rights can only be made by we the people. Not with E.O. or legislation by any governing body, or any whim of someone on the supreme court. This is to keep government from usurping the power of the people.

    The supreme Court is “appointed” to oversee the implementation of the constitution, and the protection of the constitution, by enforcing the constitution.
    Lately it would seem that the Supreme Court is neglecting its role of oversight, and enforcement. Which means it is not protecting the constitution.

    The Supreme Court is being negligent in its duty of oversight, of a number of states that have violated the constitution, by letting officials make laws illegally, instead of the legislatures in those states. This falls squarely in the scope of the Supreme Court. Whether or not any complaint has been filed in any other court or the Supreme Court Directly. This is the job of the Supreme Court in its roll of oversight, in the protection of the constitution. I am sorely disappointed by the Supreme Courts actions or lack there of, to do what is necessary to protect the constitution and thereby the country and the people. Trump thought he appointed three conservatives to the Supreme Court, I think he guessed wrong. I think that he appointed three Rhinos.

    1. So how do we impeach a supreme court’s judge. Does anyone know. Do we need a petition to get signatures. I would be willing to do it. Help.

  19. TYPICAL of our corrupt SCOTUS. If this country is ever going to exist as it was a year ago (despite the Covit19 garbage) the Dumbocrats should be tared and feathered and left to hang outside the capitol building until they are all dried up!. This cra* has to stop before a real CIVIL WAR breaks out, and thousands of good citizens are dead because of bubble-head brainless BIDEN who should thrown out, along with camel-head HARRIS, nutsy PISSSSLOUSY, SHUMMMMMER, AND ALL the rest of the supposed high ranking know-it-all Dumb-o-rats

  20. I must have misread the heading of the SCOTUS report. It says the Dems are furious! That would be great but I didn’t see it in the writing. The 2+ SCOTUS reports here that they aren’t going to look at this fraudulent election. Please explain. Thx

  21. What is going on with our SCOTUS? Where are they in looking into claims of election fraud? There are at least a thousand witnesses, ready to testify, to fraud during the election and yet SCOTUS can do no better than to say that there’s not enough evidence and that evidence would not have led to a change in the results of the election.
    How do you know it wouldn’t have led to a change until you thoroughly investigate it? They’re certainly old enough to have heard that old adage, “Where there’s smoke, there’s fire! And we conservatives think that’s an understatement in this case. How about the guy who testified he drove a truck load of ballots from NY to PA- and is ready to testify under oath that that happened. How many Dominion voting machines have they looked into forensically to see if votes could be switched, from here or from some foreign country in fact, or unauthorized votes being added. I think AZ could give you some input on all that- they had the courage to address the claims. Where were Kavanaugh & Barrett on this last decision? What is it about law-abiding people, judges even, who become week-kneed around vocal Democrats. Thank God for Clarence Thomas who wrote his dissenting opinion in this matter. This was a ridiculous decision on the part of our Supreme Court and as Justice Thomas indicated, it is mandatory that they review the claims of fraud in the 2020 election if not just to prevent it from happening again in the future. And we know that if fraud did occur, that this lack of action by SCOTUS will only embolden the perpetrators in the future. I think the real problem is that our Supreme Court is not courageous enough to possibly have to overthrow the last election if they find systemic fraud and then face the hordes of those Democratic rioters and looters. Hey, borrow some of Pelosi’s troops who don’t seem to be too busy right now as well as all the troops our former President brought home- bet they could slow down those thugs. C’mon Supremes- do your job! You’re not the Swamp- are you?

    1. Help me defund the supreme court’s judges. They don’t want to do there job defund them. To hell with a so called life time job.

  22. IT IS STILL NOT TOO LATE FOR SCOTUS TO REVIEW ALL THE EVIDENCE AND REVERSE THE ELECTION RESULTS!
    WE ALL KNOW THAT PENNSYLVANIA, MICHIGAN, ARIZONA, GEORGIA VIOLATED THE CONSTITUTION. WE KNOW THE FIX WAS IN WITH THE COMPUTERS AND THE PEOPLE, A HUGE VIOLATION OF THE LAW TOOK PLACE!!! SEVENTY FIVE MILLION AND MORE VOTERS HAVE BEEN RAPED REPEATEDLY BY THE CRIMINAL OPPOSITION, THE COURTS, AND MOST OF ALL BY SCOTUS!!!
    JOHN ROBERTS CAN EITHER CALL THE COURT TO ORDER AND START THE REVIEW AND RECONSDERATION, OR BE IMPEACHED FOR TREASON AND HIGH CRIMES!
    THE FUTURE OF OUR NATION DEPENDS ON IT!!
    IN ONE MONTH BIDEN/HARRIS HAVE BEGUN THE DESTRUCTION OF OUR COUNTRY AND JOHN ROBERTS IS AN ACCESSORY!!
    HE SHOULD HANG HIS HEAD IN SHAME!

  23. THANK YOU JUSTICE THOMAS! Shame on the rest of you for refusing to STEP UP and do your job!!! Failing to address this constitutional issue should shame each and every one of you for NOT DOING YOUR JOB!! Justice Ginsberg would be totally ashamed!!!

    I retired from working for a wonderful judge on the State level WHO NEVER backed down from a tough case; never let politics interfere; stood firm in upholding the law; and makes the SCOTUS look like traitors!!!

    You need to reconsider this decision IMMEDIATELY!!! WE, THE PEOPLE, need your support for our future elections and our constitutional rights!!!

  24. You talk like Clarence Thoms’s dissent is what will become the lawNo, Majority wins, andth ema ar not upset, You are,

  25. Excellent responses, if only the people entrusted to follow the constitution would read all of this and start acting to save “We the People”! Term limits and investigations of fraud should be done ASAP!!! Save our country.
