As the Republic Dies the Next Generation Must Rise, by Tom Luongo

It’s way past time for Boomer politicians to fade off into the sunset. From Tom Luongo at tomluongo.me:

The first rule of screenwriting, or in fact any fiction writing, is, “Conflict doesn’t create character, it reveals it.” People are who they are and we only find out what they are made of when tested to their limit.

This is the essence of all good storytelling — create characters who rise to be role models for us as we navigate our way through a Universe hostile to our very existence.

While I hesitate to ascribe such noble ideas as ‘character’ to any politician there are a few out there who have shown great potential. I’ve written about all of them at various times in the past few years.

Matteo Salvini in Italy, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, Russian President Vladmir Putin, Nigel Farage in the UK and even a flawed figure like Donald Trump are all examples of men who history will remember as having stood up when needed.

At times each of them tried to move heaven and earth to stop the degradation of society, culture and the human condition in the face of an implacable enemy – communist ideologues bent on forcing humanity into submission to their will.

But with the Supreme Court abdicating its primary responsibility under the Constitution last week citing itself in an unconstitutional ruling from 1925 (H/T Martin Armstrong for this) means it is over for Trump and the U.S. to stop the final transformation of the U.S. into an oligarchy in reality if not in spirit.

Something historic happened with America’s electors on Monday, by Andrea Widburg

The electoral college cast its votes, but there are all sorts of interesting things happening on the margins of American politics. From Andrea Widburg at americanthinker.com:

t’s pretty easy to knock Republicans.  So often, they’re the types who go along to get along.  They don’t make waves.  They concede.  They willingly negotiate.  They back down.  If they’re really bad, they become NeverTrumps.

And sometimes they surprise us.

On Monday, seven states, in addition to having their apparently victorious Democrat electors cast their votes for president, also authorized Republican electors to cast their votes to make a record.  It was wonderful.

I’m sure other, better writers than I will write about what happened on Monday, but here’s my say.  Monday was the day when the states designated their electors to cast the states’ votes for president.  By day’s end, creepy, confused Joe Biden had 306 electoral votes.

Democrats are ecstatic, believing they now have a signed, sealed, and delivered White House.  They don’t.

The Supreme Court currently appears to be a craven institution.  Many think the Court is sending a message saying that if Democrat Senate candidates win in Georgia, giving both the White House and Congress to the Democrats, it will rubber-stamp everything the Democrats do.  In this way, the justices hope to prevent court-packing that will diminish their prestige and cachet.  Still, we might yet be surprised.

Additionally, more evidence keeps emerging about massive fraud.  The audit of the Antrim Dominion machines shows that they were programmed for fraud and almost certainly used as programmed.  There are also affidavits signed under penalty of perjury from eyewitnesses and expert witnesses across America about fraud and the indicia of fraud.  There’s the infamous video from Georgia (and there may be more videos emerging, although that’s hopeful guessing on my part).  And there’s the redoubtable Sidney Powell, who says she has documentary evidence that votes were sent overseas and manipulated there.  This, she says, could trigger Trump’s 2018 executive order imposing sanctions if there was foreign interference in an election.  At the time, that E.O. appeared to be a response to the Russia collusion hoax, but Trump may have been looking ahead, not backward.

Supreme Court Is Turning Constitution Into 2-Legged Stool by Failing to Adjudicate Texas Lawsuit, by Conrad Black

Never underestimate the importance of cowardice in the affairs and history of man. From Conrad Black at theepochtimes.com:

The refusal of the U.S. Supreme Court to hear the suit of Texas and 17 other states against four states (Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin) that were alleged not to have conducted fair presidential elections, on the grounds of Texas’s lack of standing, is a grievous abdication.

The claim of Texas and the other states was that failing to protect against fraudulent voting on a large scale that affected the results for each state, and cumulatively between the defendant states to affect the outcome of the election of the president and vice president, was a violation of Texas’s right to an adequate level of assurance that the constitutional process of selection of the president and vice president was truly followed.

The attorney general of Pennsylvania called the Texas lawsuit a “seditious” attempt to disenfranchise the people of his state, and the Trump-hating media gave it the usual total-immersion in reflexive mockery.

Official processes aren’t more important than the election of the president; no right is more fundamental than the assurance of the constitutional selection of the president. The Supreme Court’s decision can only be seen as another illustration of its determination under notoriously controversy-averse Chief Justice John Roberts to avoid any judgment that might produce a partisan backlash.

The Supreme Court had one last chance to keep the American Republic together. It failed. By Nebojsa Malic

Not my president. Not my country. 70 million plus people’s allegiance to the United States of America just died. From Nebojsa Malic at rt.com:

The Supreme Court had one last chance to keep the American Republic together. It failed.
By washing its hands of responsibility to hear the Texas challenge to the 2020 presidential election, the nine Justices of the US Supreme Court may have sealed the country’s fate and made a kinetic civil war much more likely.

On Friday, the highest court in the land decided that Texas “lacked standing” to challenge the conduct of elections in Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin under Article 3 of the US Constitution. Yet the article in question explicitly states that the SCOTUS will be the original jurisdiction in “Controversies between two or more States; – between a State and Citizens of another State; – between Citizens of different States,” among other things.

Contrary to media reports, Texas did not seek to “overturn” the election of Democrat Joe Biden. The motion filed by Attorney General Ken Paxton very explicitly called for the court to order the state legislatures thereof to seat the electors, as is their constitutional prerogative. Yes, those legislatures are majority Republican, but nothing guaranteed they would actually back President Donald Trump. After all, Georgia has a Republican governor and secretary of state, and both declared the election clean as a whistle, brushing off all evidence of alleged irregularities.

Secession? Texas GOP Calls For New ‘Union Of States That Will Abide By Constitution’ In Wake Of Supreme Court Defeat, by Tyler Durden

A new constitutional nation would be a welcome thing. From Tyler Durden at zerohedge.com:

Texas Republican Party Chairman Allen West is fuming after the Supreme Court denied the state’s bid to challenge Joe Biden’s wins in Pennsylvania, Georgia, Washington and Michigan – and has suggested what sounds a lot like seccession.

In a Friday night statement, West – a former Congressman and Iraq war veteran – said: “The Supreme Court, in tossing the Texas lawsuit that was joined by seventeen states and 106 US congressmen, have decreed that a state can take unconstitutional actions and violate its own election law. Resulting in damaging effects on other states that abide by the law, while the guilty state suffers no consequences. This decision establishes a precedent that says states can violate the US constitution and not be held accountable.”

West then added: “This decision will have far reaching ramifications for the future of our constitutional republic. Perhaps law-abiding states should bond together and form a Union of states that will abide by the constitution.”

In a further statement, West repeated his suggestion – writing “If we are living in Texas, and we were joined with, you know, some 20-some-odd other states, the 1065 different members of Congress that say, ‘we do not want to stand by and allow four states to have unconstitutional practices,’ and when we see states such as ourselves following the law, but yet the Supreme Court says that’s perfectly fine, then maybe we should have a union of states that believe in the Constitution  and will abide by that rule of law, and let these other states go out on their own separate way and let them, not be supported by these other states such as ourselves.”

‘Civil War Without the Grapeshot’: Texas Launches SCOTUS Bid to Save Trump, and Maybe Even the Republic, by Robert Bridge

This article was published before the Supreme Court refused to hear the Texas election suit, but it makes salient points about the obvious election frauds and the consequences of a Biden victory. From Robert Bridge at strategic-culture.org:

In a dramatic and unprecedented turn of events amid the 2020 presidential election fiasco, the Lone Star State is leading the charge to overturn results in four swing states where multiple irregularities were alleged to have occurred in delivering the presidency to the Democrat Joe Biden. Nothing less than the survival of the Republic as we know it hangs in the balance.

President Donald Trump and 17 Republican-ruled states filed motions this week in support of the Texas’ ‘Hail Mary’ effort to get the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn results in four major swing states – Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin – where alleged fraud and irregularities catapulted Biden into the White House. The legal challenge comes just days before the Electoral College is scheduled to formally pronounce on the outcome.

Trump’s legal team has experienced multiple setbacks in its efforts to present its case at the state level. Those failures were not wholly unexpected considering that three of the states being sued are Democrat-run; not exactly places where the scales of justice would tip in Trump’s favor. As for Georgia, Republican Governor Brian Kemp, proving his credentials in the RINO club (‘Republican In Name Only’) has impeded efforts for a recount every step of the way.

Supreme Court Tosses Texas Bid To Overturn Election, by Tyler Durden

Well, that’s that. The fix is in. From Tyler Durden at zerohedge.com:

The Supreme Court on Friday tossed a last-minute bid by the state of Texas to overturn the 2020 election by challenging the results of four battleground states.

Citing a lack of standing, Justice Samuel Alito wrote in a brief order that the state “has not demonstrated a judicially cognizable interest in the manner in which another State conducts its elections,” adding “All other pending motions are dismissed as moot.”

In doing so, the justices shut down a long-shot bid for Texas to challenge Biden’s wins in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Georgia and Wisconsin – which was joined by 17 other states and over 100 House Republicans.

Will the Supreme Court’s Conservatives Extinct Themselves? by Robert Gore

Trump, or extinction by irrelevance?

Update: The Supreme Court declined to hear the Texas suit late Friday afternoon.

The state of Texas has filed suit against four states where the presidential election results are in dispute: Michigan, Wisconsin, Georgia, and Pennsylvania. The Constitution gives the Supreme Court original jurisdiction for suits between states (Article III, Section 2). The court ordered the four states to submit their responses yesterday. A number of states have filed amicus, or friend of the court, briefs both in support of and in opposition to Texas.

Suppose the court either refuses to take the case or it rules against Texas. Suppose also that the Democrats win the two contested Georgia Senate races January 5. With the apparent cheating demonstrated in the presidential election and Georgia’s RINO governor and secretary of state, nobody should assume the runoffs will be fair or that challenges to an unfair election will have any chance of success.

Biden would be president and Democrats would control the House of Representatives and the Senate (it would be 50-50, but vice president Harris would break ties). They could and probably would carry out their plans to expand the Supreme Court and “pack” it with a unstoppable liberal majority. In either refusing to hear the Texas suit or accepting the suit but ruling against Texas, the Supreme Court’s five conservative justices will have contributed to their own demises as consequential jurists—collective judicial suicide.

On the other hand, the court could take the case and rule in favor of Texas. It helps that Texas has a strong legal case. Article I, Section 4 states: The Times, Places, and Manner of holding Elections for Senators and Representatives, shall be proscribed in each State by the Legislature thereof; but the Congress at any time may at any time by Law make or alter such regulations, except to the Places of chusing Senators. This clause apparently has been extended to presidential elections, which are held concurrently with Congressional elections.

American Democracy Is a Fiction & Who Do Republicans Represent? by Paul Craig Roberts

If the election goes to the Supreme Court, Paul Craig Roberts thinks it will stick with the Establishment. From Roberts at paulcraigroberts.com:

As my article this morning on this 79th anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor illustrates ( https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2020/12/07/pearl-harbor-an-orchestrated-event/ ), governments use deception to bring people in agreement with the agendas of those who control government.  The cost of such deceptions usually exceed the benefits.  Ruinous wars result, and the unity required to cement a country together can be destroyed.

I believe the latter has happened with the stolen US presidential election.  It is certain that the election was stolen, and 75% of Republicans and 30% of Democrats believe that it was according to the Rasmussen Poll.  The organized theft was planned well in advance, and the hysteria orchestrated by the Covid threat paved the way for fraudulent mail-in ballots.  As I previously explained, state election laws in swing states were violated by Democrat election officials, governors, and secretaries of state. Even state constitutions were violated.  The voting machines were programmed to weight the vote in Biden’s favor.  When this did not suffice, halts in vote counting were declared in several swing states, all poll watchers were sent home, and fradulent main-in ballots were fed into the vote count in the absence of supervision.

The evidence of electoral fraud consists of (1) a comparison of state laws and constitutional requirements with what actually happened as admitted by Democrat officials themselves and justified because of Covid, (2) hundreds of affidavits signed under oath by witnesses to fraudulent voting, (3) expert testimony demonstrating the fraud and how it was done ( https://www.bitchute.com/video/YFwe6cfaGQCa/ ), and (4) security camera films and eyewitness reports of large numbers of mail-in ballots, some uniformly premarked, some without creases and thus never mailed in, and some filled out by Democrats on the spot,  surreptitously delivered and entered into the vote count without supervision.

President Swamp, by James Howard Kunstler

An illegitimate president has a tough row to hoe. From James Howard Kunstler at kunstler.com:

Donald Trump found out the hard way how illusory his powers as POTUS really were, conditioned against the inertia, malice, and bad faith resistance of the bureaucratic establishment, a.k.a. the Swamp. He also knows that the Swamp just worked the system it created to elect itself president as (it likes to think) a final act of revenge against the orange interloper who threatened to drain it and, alas, failed to. All hail President Swamp!

Unless that doesn’t pan out, and there’s a fair chance it won’t, since a 2020 election fraud case will eventually land in the Supreme Court where at least five justices might not be so inclined to let what remains of the Republic roll into a Woke sludge of lawlessness. Do you suppose Clarence Thomas & Co haven’t been paying attention the past four years to the swampish doings in the other branches of government? And that they are, just perhaps, good and goddam sick of it? Everything from RussiaGate and the manipulation of the FISA court through the attempted character assassination of Justice Kavanaugh, to the Eric Ciaramella “whistleblower” impeachment caper starring Rep. Adam Schiff, plus all the side dishes of Antifa / BLM street anarchy, Covid-19 lockdown tyranny, French Laundry hypocrisy, and the gaslighting of America by the news-and-social media, with a transsexual reading hour cherry-on-top?

I hope the justices are pissed off a little bit at the hijacking of this country by a party that laughs at the law the way, for one example, DC District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan blew raspberries at the Department of Justice and the DC Circuit Court of Appeals when they both told him to drop the Flynn case. The deadline for adjudicating the janky election is soon upon us, and upon the SCOTUS justices, so the country will know shortly whether it has become the Honduras of the north.
