Yeah, he went there.
President Donald Trump said a lot of things during his much-anticipated CPAC speech on Sunday.
And looking back, we can’t think of one thing he said that wasn’t appropriate.
He hit Joe Biden’s disastrous immigration policies.
He blasted the RINO wing of the GOP.
He said ‘no’ to a third party, that he is content to retake and remake the GOP in his image.
And he also blared at the cowards on the Supreme Court, three of them who he put there at great expense to his political capital, only to see them not only betray him but the country and the Constitution they were nominated to defend and uphold.
Former President Donald Trump attacked the Supreme Court about their disregard to hear cases about concerns about election rules, zeroing in on the high court’s refusal to hear a GOP-led case to challenge a Pennsylvania state court decision changing rules ahead of the 2020 election. …
The former president emphasized that there are constitutional requirements state legislatures have to change or rewrite election rules, rather than local judges or officials, accusing the Supreme Court of lacking courage to take on the challenge. …
Last week, the Supreme Court voted 6-3 not to hear a case emanating from Pennsylvania that charged the state government and courts with usurping the state legislature in changing rules for mail in-ballots and voting deadlines, saying it was moot because the election was over.
“Our election process is worse than that in many cases of the third-world country, you know that, you saw what was going on,” Trump said. “Even if you consider nothing else, it is undeniable that election rules were illegally changed at the last minute and almost every swing state with the procedures rewritten by local politicians, you're not allowed to do that, and local judges.”
“Regardless of your political views, this should concern you as a constitutional matter, and the Supreme Court did not have the guts and the courage to do anything about it. And neither did other judges,” Trump said.
In a scathing dissent, one of the high court’s legitimate, few constitutionalists, Justice Clarence Thomas, blasted the cowardice.
“One wonders what the Court waits for,” Thomas wrote. “We failed to settle this dispute before the election, and thus provide clear rules. Now we again fail to provide clear rules for future elections. The decision to leave election law hidden beneath a shroud of doubt is baffling. By doing nothing, we invite further confusion and erosion of voter confidence.”
Yes, erosion of confidence, sure. But also civil war at some point if this BS isn’t stopped before the next election.
At some point, a large plurality of Americans, at a minimum, will grow weary of being cheated out of their choice of who to represent them in the White House. Hide and watch.
Literally, nearly 75 million Americans were disenfranchised in November. That can’t – and won’t – stand.
Is Joe Biden's Inflation Going to Destroy our Economy and Break the Back of Consumers?
Are backed-up supply chains adding to the dilemma of bad policy?
You can't afford NOT to be prepared for the coming financial reset
