God bless the State of Texas and AG Paxton. What he has just done gives us every chance to save our Republic and our country. Keep in mind that there are only a few instances where a party can file a direct lawsuit with the U.S. Supreme Court, a state claiming harm by another state is one of those instances.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton has filed a lawsuit [pdf here] with the Supreme Court seeking and emergency injunction against Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Georgia “from taking action to certify presidential electors or to have such electors take any official action including without limitation participating in the electoral college.”
AG Paxton argues that arbitrary changes made by the state’s governors, secretaries of states and election supervisors were “inconsistent with relevant state laws and were made by non-legislative entities, without any consent by the state legislatures. The acts of these officials thus directly violated the Constitution.”
The lawsuit states: “these non-legislative changes … facilitated the casting and counting of ballots in violation of state law, which, in turn, violated the Electors Clause of Article II, Section 1, Clause 2 of the U.S. Constitution.” […] “By these unlawful acts, the Defendant States have not only tainted the integrity of their own citizens vote, but their actions have also debased the votes of citizens in Plaintiff State and other States that remained loyal to the Constitution.”
Paxton notes the intent of the states may have been changes in good faith, due to COVID-19 mitigation efforts; however, the end result of the changes is in direct violation to the Constitution and therefore creates the harm.
“Certain officials in the Defendant States presented the pandemic as the justification for ignoring state laws regarding absentee and mail-in voting.” […] “The Defendant States flooded their citizenry with tens of millions of ballot applications and ballots in derogation of statutory controls as to how they are lawfully received, evaluated, and counted. Whether well intentioned or not, these unconstitutional acts had the same uniform effect they made the 2020 election less secure in the Defendant States.”
This is absolutely brilliant!
Here is an excellent thread by Roscoe B. Davis explaining what this entails and what the outcome will be once 5 justices rule in favor of the injunction.
This is for all the marbles! This determines whether we are a country of laws or not. Whether our Constitution lives on or dies.
Our President absolutely understands the magnitude of this case! Look what he retweeted:
God bless the AG of Arkansas as well as the other 5 AGs that joined AG Paxton.
The MSM, Democrats, Leftists, Never Trumpers, RINOS etc. are continuing to try and gaslight the country. They can take their safe harbor deadline and wipe their asses with it!
From the article linked above:
And thank God for Ken Paxton, the Texas AG who has put together one barnburner of an election case.
Here are the very brief details on the case:
Paxton believes that he can use “Article II” to take his lawsuits against PA, WI, GA, and MI straight to the SCOTUS, bypassing the lower courts totally.
And he’s putting it to the test. He filed a lawsuit at around midnight last night, arguing that PA, WI, GA, and MI violated the Electors Clause of the Constitution because they made changes to voting rules and procedures through the courts or through executive actions, but not through the state legislatures.
In other words, they bypassed Republican legislatures to do their little workarounds with mail-in ballots and registrations, etc.
That goes against the Constitution. All of those changes had to be made via the state legislatures and they were not.
Here’s a great video from a lawyer that explains the suit in detail:
Our President understands the magnitude of the Supreme Court’s upcoming decision. That is why this occurred yesterday:
The Insurrection Act will be announced by our President soon after the Supreme Court rules in his favor!
