Texas court strikes down Democrat attempts to force mail-in voting

Though much of the nation has been distracted by the ongoing protests, Democrats haven’t stopped pushing mail-in voting schemes for the 2020 elections, an alarming trend that Donald Trump has been pushing back against for weeks.

However, a federal appeals court just handed Trump — and the GOP — a major win last week by blocking a district judge’s ruling forcing Texas to allow all residents to vote by mail.

The original ruling cited concerns about coronavirus in attempting to force the state to allow universal mail-in voting for the upcoming election, arguing that a lack of immunity to the virus constituted a “disability,” thus granting all residents of the state the right to vote from home.

However, The 5th Circuit Court of Appeals unanimously rejected the argument, stating in the decision that “it is a crime to encourage voters to indicate that they are disabled merely because they lack immunity.”

The court continued:

In an order that will be remembered more for audacity than legal reasoning, the district judge intervenes just weeks before an election, entering a sweeping preliminary injunction that requires state officials … to distribute mail-in ballots to any eligible voter who wants one.

The court slammed U.S. District Judge Fred Biery, saying that his ruling in favor of the Democrat demands for expanded mail-in voting “resolves to take matters into his own hands,” pointing out that the threat of COVID-19 does not grant federal judges “a roving commission to rewrite state election codes.”

Republican Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton celebrated the decision, saying that “allowing universal  mail-in ballots, which are particularly vulnerable to fraud, would only lead to greater election fraud and disenfranchise lawful voters. The unanimous Fifth Circuit ruling puts a stop to this blatant violation of Texas law.”

Of course, Democrats will not stop here. Texas Democrat party Chair Gilberto Hinojosa, the lead plaintiff in the original lawsuit, said that the case might need “direction from the United States Supreme Court.”

  1. No more cheating , now what are they going to do ! They will lose everything intelligence , judicial , house . They only won these areas by cheating . Disgusting . We teach our children not to cheat , lie because God is watching .

    1. Before you give your god credit, how about you NAME the god that did this.
      Was is Zeus? Odin? Krishna? Quetzalcoatl? Set? Thor? Ra?
      Oh wait, not THOSE gods, they’re myths, right?
      All these gods were here way before the god of your mythology, before your hippie from Bethlehem.

      1. Want to see you prove that there is no God, you can’t, so that dog don’t hunt there big boyf

      2. Hoss there is only one God. He is Jehovah the God of heaven and earth. The creator and the Lord of Lords. The rest are idols created by men. Best remember that because without him you will be separated from the Spirit of God and you will be in the bowels of hell were you will gnash your teeth and scream in pain forever. Should read your bible. Because you can decide to serve God or the devil. God Bless you.

      3. May God have mercy on your soul!! To deny God is to deny your soul a place in heaven!! The Holy Bible says to the effect that to deny God you will be cast into a lake of fire for all eternity!!! I would rather to believe and worship God than get to judgement day and be turned away from Heaven !!! So sorry you feel that way about God!! If you want to know why things are happening like they are get a Holy Bible and read the book of Revelations!!! It will explain it to you loud and clear!

        1. I AGREE 100% DEMOCRATS ARE OUT OF CONTROL. I believe in GOD and these people will one day have to answer to him FACE TO FACE. GOD is the great CREATOR. GOD BLESS

          1. REVELATION SURE TELLS WHAT IS HAPPENING AND WHAT WILL HAPPEN LOUD AND CLEAR. SURE WISH CHURCHES WOULD JUST OPEN UP AS WE ALL KNOW WHY OUR GOVERNOR (cuomo) DOES NOT WANT THEM OPEN. HE NEEDS PRAYER

      4. And when, not if, you will bend your knee before God, ask. Those that don’t believe will have the 2nd death that will be eternal. ?

      5. Rude and disgusting!
        You will have to take this affront
        With HIM one day. Maybe you should do some research on God. HE is the only ONE who acted to FORGIVE ones such as you who “know not “ of what you say. By the way HIS NAME IS JEHOVAH.

      6. From your mouth comes foolishness which one day you will regret unless you repent Hoss. I’m not telling you what to believe that is your choice my intentions are simply meant as a warning.

  2. That is fantastic. If a person can get up and go to restaurants, movies, hair dressers, etc, then they can walk up and vote. They do NOT need a mail in ballot. In Texas, there are certain requirements to meet prior to receiving a mail in ballot. Thank you for holding fast!!!!

      1. I AN SO HAPPY WE FINALLY HAVE A JUDGE WITH AMERICAN VALUES FOR OUR CONSTITUTION. CALIF. GAVE ILLEGALS DRIVER LICENCES AND THEY VOTE. IF YOU CAN GO TO THE STORES GO TO CASINOS =, SPORTS ETC. YOU CAN TAKE A FEW MINUTES TO MAKE YOUR VOTE COUNT. I WISH EVERY STATE HAD VOTER ID. PA DOES NOT. MAYBE SOMEDAY. WE NED A SPECIAL ID NOW TO BOARD AN AIRPLANE AND OTHER THINGS, BUT YOUR VOTE IS NOT SO IMPORTANT TO NEED ONE.

    1. That is a BIG 10-4 I think every state in the U.S.A. SHOULD
      HAVE TO HAVE VOTER ID ALONG WITH PHOTO ID. I live in
      Ohio and I have to voter ID and Photo ID

    2. I agree! In every state! But democrats don’t want that because the illegals couldn’t vote!!! So sad that the illegals can’t see that the democrats only care about them at election years!!

  3. The Demon Rats want to give voting rights to any and all illegals so they can get Trump out of the White House! So that they can continue to sell this country down the tube! The 13 original colonies must be turning in their graves as to what been going on! And Piglosi needs to give up a few pay checks to help the American people and the same goes for all the other DemonRats as they take to many vacations at our expense! Actually they shouldn’t receive any pay till they start working for the American people once again!

  4. Anyone in favor of mail in votes
    Is a socialistic communist bad
    Person and should be deported
    To china where there wishes could
    Come true.

  5. Thank God for judges who know the law and do not allow cheating. That would have so many votes that are not really votes. We teach our children to be truthful and then our elected officials try to cheat on voting. What a shame and they need to be caught and put where they can no longer disrupt our Nation. Thank you for stopping this fraudulent voting.

  6. Considering the rioting morons wasting there energy burning , looting , showing disrespect to themselves , their families and law abiding citizens and total disregard for lives of others is another example why mail in voting is a farce. They are capable of rioting so therefore they and everyone else don’t need to vote by mail. Illegals have no constitutional rights to vote , but commie crats don’t respect Americans or our Constitution.

  7. President trump and Vice President Pence are true Patriots,we must stand behind them all the way.Thank God for good JUDGES.

  8. The morons in San Antonio, all officials Left—mistly Democratic Socialist Mexican Party will do anything to keep Trump from winning. Need guards at our voting places. Machines in most places. Need to be checked out and picked up. J Castro was mayor. Obama had him do him a big favor and then made Castro head of HUD that was missing $350 mil when Dr. Ben Carson took over. Bunch of thieves.

  9. it is way over due to start charging, arresting, and convicting these democrats that areviolating all standards of their sworn oaths to protect the us and the constitution which they violating every day convict them of treason, traiting, and breaking the laws on every level so will be in prison for a verylong time aoc should be put in prison and her citizenship taken away permanently

  10. I’m glad! Me and my mom which is 88 years old is planning on going to the voting poles, something we’ve not done in years( we do mail- in) but if the Demacrats want mail- in voting we know they are up to no good.

  11. Every time the Dems want something, they come up with a kind of moral explanation in order to get it, but only because, in the end, they will use it to their advantage and no ones else’s. So, don’t let a good thing go to waste, like the virus… hey, give people ballots to mail in so they won’t have to leave the house. And of course dead aunt Mary can be added to it, etc, etc, etc. It blows my mind that people still vote for these kind of people, knowing deep down they could care less about them.

  12. THANK YOU, DEAR GOD FOR AN INTELLIGENT JUDGE.
    Americans must be certain that ALL voters are American citizen … AND NOT DECEASED.

  13. In Washington State, we have mail-in ballots and I would love for that to change, we need to prove who we are — after all our governor is a Democrat, do not trust him even when I can watch him, let alone with our ballots. They want us to mark the outside of our ballots with our party designation … hmmm I wonder why.
