Supreme Court rejects Texas Democrats’ request to affirm mail-in voting rule

Democrats are desperate to force vote-by-mail measures by any means necessary, but they were dealt a devastating blow by the Supreme Court on Friday.

Texas Democrats successfully pressured a district court into ordering state leaders to send mail-in ballots to Texas voters ahead of the Texas primary runoff in mid-July. Then, the Fifth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals placed a stay order, prompting activists to request the SCOTUS take on the case — a request that was quickly rejected.

“The application to vacate stay presented to Justice Alito and by him referred to the Court is denied,” wrote the court’s on Friday. Alito’s decision allowing the circuit court’s injunction against forcing mail-in ballots to stay in place is a major victory for Trump and other GOP leaders that are concerned about the potential for election fraud.

Activist judge Fred Biery ruled in May — at the behest of the Texas Demo­cratic Party — that because “the entire world is mostly without immunity” to COVID-19, all Texas voters are “disabled” and thus eligible for absentee ballots.

The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals blocked the ruling soon after, ruling that mail-in voting measures should be agreed upon by state officials. Democrats countered the ruling by asking the Supreme Court to take on the case, but the high court’s rejection means that current rules limiting mail-in ballots in Texas will remain in place for the July 14th primary.

Texas Democratic Party Chair Gilberto Hinojosa mourned the decision, complaining that “we are disappointed that the Supreme Court did not weigh in now and provide needed relief and clarity for voters ahead of the primary runoff.”

Texas has been a solidly red state for years. Democrats hoping to flip the state blue were counting on the possibilities that mail-in ballots present to achieve that goal, but it appears they will have to try to win the primaries the old-fashioned way.

Donald Trump celebrated the decision, tweeting on Friday, “Big WIN in Texas on Mail-In Ballots!”

    1. VOTE THESE DEMO RATS ANIMALS OUT IN NOVEMBER. NANCY PELOSI, AND HER WHOLE MOB. THIS WOMAN SHOULD HAVE HER PAYCHECK TAKEN AWAY FROM HER.. DOING NOTHING FOR OUR COUNTRY AND US PEOPLE. JUST GOING AFTER PRESIDENT TRUMP EVERYDAY. SHE IS A DEVIL,EVIL DISGRACEFUL WOMEN. THROW HER OUT OF CONGRESS SHE ISNT DOING HER JOB. SHE IS A COMMUNIST RACIST WOMAN HER AND HER MOB. WHAT THE HELL IS SHE DOING IN CONGRESS DOES NOTHING FOR US. NOT RESPECTING OUR PRESIDENT TRUMP. VOTE THIS EVIL WOMAN OUT OF CONGRESS.

    2. After reading a lot of B.S and watching others talk I have come to a conclusion. Biden will not be alive to run/accept the Presidency. He will “pass away ” at an inappropriate and awkward time. This will give the Dems “emergency powers” (they say) if it’s after he was elected but not yet confirmed, they will try to push Obama into the position. If he chooses Michele as his VP, and she becomes President, then she is free to pick her choice, Guess who?? If it is during the voting stage they might try to push Obama in unless the VP gets pushy and derails their plans, then all hell breaks loose. Sort of ragged and loose, but it is what I see.

    3. We will stand in line to vote the dems are done the majorty is comeing to vote you out you dont have our numbers lol

  1. …the PROBLEM with “Mail-In” votes… lies NOT in the ballot form, but rather in the people who process the Vote. AND, until Graft & Corruption are removed from the Political process… the current system, with all its yea’s & nay’s, will have to do!

  2. Great win !! Now lets block mail in voting in all states so the do nothing democrates cant cheat and its a truely fair election.

    1. I AGREE 100%. ERIC LETS GET A PETTION AND GET RID OF THESE RACISTS COMMUNIST SOCIALIST DEMO RAT PARTY. NO MORE MAIL IN VOTING. VOTE THESE CORRUPT PEOPLE OUT IN NOVEMBER.

  3. Mail in ballots should only go out to people that are disabled. Those that have disabled signs in or on there cars or a written note from a doctor that they need to vote from home.

    1. Democrats, you have already lost, give it up the American people (in groves) are seeing through your corrupt agenda, the American people as a whole don’t want your corrupt, communist, socialism, ruling them. Most Trump supporters prefer to be free and to think for themselves. Abolish vote by mail expect disabled Americans, and the deployed military persons but watch this very carefully for fraud, also rework the welfare system, only those that are truly deserving of it, set it up just like the unemployed criteria, must show proof that recipients have looked to obtain employment or no check, Cut off the freeloaders.

  4. It isn’t who you are voting for but who is processing the votes. Way to easy to switch ballots on the way to be counted. If we can go shopping or protest then we can go vote!

  5. Well I think if the Chinese communists party 19, aka; COVID-19, is so rampant. Walmart, Lowe’s, Home Depot, other such large unnecessary shops. Should be made to close their doors, they don’t enforce distance nor social safe protocols. It’s the excuse the commie-crats are using to force mail in ballots.

  6. SATANRAT lost time conservatives to dance in the streets whoop it up YAHOO!!!!!!!!!!! Got what you deserved!!!!!!!!!! NANA NANA NANA PIGLOUSE WANT TO SEE THOSE BIG TEARS ON TV CHUCK. BABY AOC Shut your ignorant mouth go cry to mommy MAXINE HA HA HA HA jihadist time Omar you are after all so is iliana want to see you both in action. Pencil stick run as fast as you can to cry on mom and dads shoulders boho snif.

  7. Wow thank you God is for sure.
    Love it let it be fair. All these Dems do is cheat and continue to plot for more.
    They like ants ,ants always stick together. Celebrate this one !!!!
    We the people!

  8. ***it appears they will have to try to win the primaries the old-fashioned way.

    That means bus loads of kallage stoodunts, illegals, and the dead voting multiple times.

  9. I say that if the Left wants mandatory ballots the Right should go ahead and grant them the wish only if everyone has a mandatory voter ID

  10. Push for voter ID. In some sanctuary cities politicians close their eyes and even encourage illegal aliens to vote. They also allow illegals to get a drivers license. This must end.

  11. Mail in ballots are for those with bonafide reasons to not be able to vote in person and should be closely guarded against fraud. The ability to copy ballots for others does exist and at present as far as I know there is no way to verify recipients are actually doing the voting. Unless there is a medical reason why the voter can not be present (except military stationed out of home state) their vote should be in person with proper ID.

  12. FOLKS–wise up. On November (before you vote)–just think about this FACT–that the Demonrat Party –in more than 3 years–have done nothing for the American people. The only work they’ve done was to –TRY TO REMOVE PRES TRUMP FROM THE WHITE HOUSE. Don’t be CRAZY (like them)–be smart by voting STRAIGHT Republican and throw away the DEMONS into HELL (where they really belong). MAGA forever!!

  13. Way to Go TEXAS!!!.. Keep the Faith We Still have in God & Country!! This entire 4 Years We watched the Demicratic Party you know the Minority DO NOTHING FOR WE THE PEOPLE!!! When they had the White House they spent 8 Years Distroying our country, Helping Iran, selling Nuclear Material to Russia! I say lets VOTE them OUT and Make this Country Sore like Trump did in 3 Years!!! The Democrats Spent $35,000,000 in the Russia Hoax, God knows how much attempting to Impeach?!! Now once again Shifty Shift ( the JOKER🃏) and Nadler the (THE PENGUIN🐧) FAILED TO TAKE DOWN TRUMP ( BATMAN )!!! ONCE AGAIN. THEY FAILED!!! I think they should be Held for TREASONOUS ACTS. & ABUSE OF THEIR POSITIONS OF POWER!!!!!… A CLEAR ATTEMPT TO OVERTHROW OUR PRESIDENT, THAT’S TREASON!!!!… GO M.A.G.A!!!….

  14. Rioting punks don’t need vote by mail, they get enough exercise destroying properties. Illegals don’t need vote by mail because illegals are not citizens I am 71 and I vote in person. The Democrats want vote by mail for their agenda to further destroy what little is left in America.

  15. Really! Let the democraps go fishing in a real deep pool of p*** and see what they can snag with their lies.

  16. DemoEvilCrats have to cheat to win, since JFK they been cheating. They hate America and true Americans🇺🇸
