He should be forced to recuse, along with Amy Corny, on any case that deals with election decisions.

They are going to keep pushing people. And when they keep pushing, and people get tired of it, the people will push back. And when they do someone will push back hard and go over the edge, using violence because they will feel there is no other option.

The next two months are going to be insane.

If it looks like Biden will overwhelmingly win, the Supreme Court will rule it's evidence of obvious fraud.

We aren't farked yet. The courts and voter suppression can affect a marginal race; they aren't going to be able to affect a race where Biden wins 270+ in states where his margin exceeds a couple points. So make sure that his margin is far too large for them to be able to fark about with.

I remember all the people in 2017 through mid 2018 claiming that the Democrats simply could not overcome gerrymandering etc to take the House. They took the House by a massive margin. Win the presidency, win the Senate, and then reform the court so these yahoos no longer have a majority.

But fail to do any of those things? Yeah, then everyone is really farked. This is all-hands-to-the-wheel time.

Well maybe that third of the nation who decided not to bother getting out in 16 should get their asses to the polls one way or another.

You've got a week to figure the shiat out on how to get it counted,

Also:

- Members of SCOTUS have just essentially announced that they'll tilt a close election toward Trump.

- People in Trump's orbit expect that he'll fire the head of the FBI, CIA and others post-election in order to install people who will maliciously prosecute his political enemies.

- A virus is ravaging the country that will, by the end of the year, kill nearly half a million people. The president and his staff have indicated that they consider it old news and have stopped trying.

If none of the above can motivate you to pull the lever for Joe Biden, then fark you. fark everything you think you stand for. I don't care if you're in DC or Idaho or somewhere, take a farking stand for democracy and good governance.

So the Supreme Court is trying to overthrow state authority over elections? Are they going to rule by dictat now? How TF are they going to rule on every election law in every state?
 
2020-10-27 2:36:52 AM  
You know it scares me to all hell to say this, but I THINK the House and Senate need to work together to do some things:
1) DECONSOLIDATE power of leadership. The Senate in particular, the Majority Leader is not there to be a DICTATOR. These branches of government not only need to work better inside each chamber, but together as a legislative branch.
2) STRIP POWER FROM THE SUPREME COURT. Begin to require oversight. It may hurt ehen Republicans win Congress, but this Court is going to destroy the God damned country.
3) Start to CHALLENGE the Executive Branch. Don't become a check mark for Presidential ideas. Go back to how it used to be when expecting judicial nominations to be GOOD.*

*after Democrats pack the courts, restructure the federal court system, and bring back the filibuster when they're done.

It's quite simple. Does it benefit the GOP? Then rule that way.

Question that someone else asked:

Did the state Supreme Court rule the other way? Or is this an affirmation of the state Supreme Court?

Sucks but it makes a difference. Sorry I'm very basic but just curious.

I'm not sure how anyone could argue with a straight face how counting absentee ballots are "a significant departure". I don't think this means what it's presented to mean.

Them and what army? The Supreme court doesn't control shiat. What they control are literally pieces of paper. If no1curr because they emit garbage rulings that no one can actually follow, what are they going to do?

yep, it's gonna be ugly.

conservaturd republithugs like to think they are the tough guys on the block and can keep pushing as they please, but there is a reckoning coming. the 'tired-of-this-shiat' stage is a well set now and real. 'we go high' is just a quaint, naïve and distant concept and barely merits a chuckle any more.

its gonna get real ugly, real fast.

In the WI case, they upheld the (conservative) WI Supreme Court.

However, in the PA case, which was 4-4, the four conservative members of SCOTUS argued, in essence, that the state Supreme Court had misinterpreted their own state constitution, by virtue of the fact that the state legislature wanted something different. Which is absolutely nuts.
 
2020-10-27 2:42:25 AM  
Hey. Why waste time, right? They got right to it.

Anybody who thought this was all some kind of accident, well. Nope. They are pulling the plan together.

We thought they were not campaigning because they did not have the money. Turns out they did not need to campaign.

you missed:

Biden will lose because 100,000s of ballots will be thrown out by the Federal Courts.  Why do you think McConnell was in such a rush to place those 140-some-odd Fed judges plus 2 SCOTUS judges.
