THE SUPREME MOMENT OF AMERICA’S FATE
It’s a true fork, not an intersection leading in multiple directions. Here the road divides in two and two only, an either-or, the choice between them must be made. And very soon.
Future historians will record the date, Tuesday December 8, 2020 when Texas v Pennsylvania was filed with and docketed by the Supreme Court of the United States. The very next day, December 9, 18 states joined Texas in its lawsuit against the states of Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, with SCOTUS requiring all four defendants to “actively respond” to the specific accusations of election fraud by 3pm EST today, December 10.
The 18 additional states joining Texas in requesting the Supreme Court to prevent the 62 Electoral Votes of the defendant states being preemptively given to the Democrat presidential candidate are:
Alabama, Arkansas, Arizona, Florida, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, and West Virginia. There are reports that six more states – Kentucky, Idaho, Iowa, Ohio, North Carolina and Wyoming – may join the suit as well.
As Kris Kobach made clear in Texas Comes to America’s Rescue (12/08):
“Importantly, the Texas lawsuit presents a pure question of law. It is not dependent upon disputed facts. Although these unconstitutional changes to the election rules could have facilitated voter fraud, the State of Texas doesn’t need to prove a single case of fraud to win. It is enough that the four states violated the Constitution.
The lawsuit asks the Supreme Court to remand the appointment of electors in the four states back to the state legislatures. As the Supreme Court said in 1892 in the case of McPherson v. Blacker, ‘Whatever provisions may be made by statute, or by the state constitution, to choose electors by the people, there is no doubt of the right of the legislature to resume the power at any time’.”
As Trump legal team lawyer Jordan Sekulow explains, this constitutional challenge directly to SCOTUS is the “outcome-determinative” case that decides who will be inaugurated President this coming January 20.
Yet this decision by the Supreme Court is consequential far beyond which of two candidates wins an election.
For if five or more Justices rule against Texas, they will have ruled that election fraud is henceforth constitutional in any federal election in America’s future. They will have voted to end the rule of law in the United States. They will have declared that the clear words of our Constitution no longer have any meaning, and thus there is no longer a Constitution at all.
They will have chosen the fork in the road of America’s fate that leads unswervingly to might-makes-right lawless fascism, giving Americans only the choice of surrender to it or oppose it ultimately with armed force.
For when the ballot box has become fatally corrupted by the highest legal authority, the only way to regain freedom is with the cartridge box.
It seems impossible, unimaginable, that Justices Alito, Barrett, Gorsuch, Kavanaugh, and Thomas would do this to the Constitution they have a life-long record of revering. Sadly, there is less confidence in Chief Justice Roberts. And little to none in Breyer, Kagan, and Sotomayor.
But… we will not know conclusively until their decision has been rendered. This is high drama, drama of the highest order. We shall soon know the outcome of this Supreme moment of America’s fate.
