The Trump campaign has filed an emergency motion in the Supreme Court on Sunday to reverse Pennsylvania’s state court rulings that “illegally changed” the state’s mail balloting laws. Therefore, they seek to send the selection of the electors for Pennsylvania to the legislature who has the legal authority to appoint new presidential electors. They asked for an emergency hearing saying that “the outcome of the election for the presidency of the United States hangs in the balance.” They further added:
“Time is plainly of the essence because once candidates have taken office, it will be impossible to repair election results tainted by illegally and belatedly cast or absentee and mail ballots,” the petition states. “The intense national and worldwide attention on the 2020 presidential election only foreshadows the disruption that may well follow if the uncertainty and unfairness shrouding this election are allowed to persist.”
If the Supreme Court does not accept this petition and rule on the merits rather than dancing with the procedure and using illegal “discretion” to simply avoid the entire election, then there is absolutely no reason why the protestors would not surround the Supreme Court for they are condemning the nation to uncertainly and the protests will become bloody and it will NOT be just one group anymore.
If there are no courts to hear disputes, then there is no civilization. In the Declaration of Independence, one of the chief complaints was that the King would charge someone and then to ensure he would be found guilty, he transported you and you were put on trial in London. That is why in the Sixth Amendment, you are to be tried where the crime took place. In the United States, the federal courts violate that principle all the time. They will always charge people in New York despite the fact the alleged crime took place elsewhere. This is why fair trials in the United States DO NOT exist – hence their 99% conviction rate.
If the Supreme Court rejects this petition, they have surrendered the law to “discretion” and that is the end of the United States. The Supreme Court has reduced itself to the status of a hypocrite.
