Texas Files Lawsuit with Supreme Court Against 4 Battleground States


Ken Paxton, the Texas Attorney General, announced he has filed a lawsuit against Georgia, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania with the Supreme Court. The lawsuit alleges that these states allowed Covid-19 to wrongfully justify ignoring both federal and state election laws to enact last-minute changes to the election process, ultimately helping Joe Biden win and thereby violating the Constitution.

The Daily Wire reports:

“Trust in the integrity of our election processes is sacrosanct and binds our citizenry and the States in this Union together,” Paxton said in a statement. “Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin destroyed that trust and compromised the security and integrity of the 2020 election. The states violated statutes enacted by their duly elected legislatures, thereby violating the Constitution.”

“By ignoring both state and federal law, these states have not only tainted the integrity of their own citizens’ vote, but of Texas and every other state that held lawful elections,” Paxton continued. “Their failure to abide by the rule of law casts a dark shadow of doubt over the outcome of the entire election. We now ask that the Supreme Court step in to correct this egregious error.”

This case presents a question of law: Did the Defendant States violate the Electors Clause by taking non-legislative actions to change the election rules that would govern the appointment of presidential electors? These non-legislative changes to the Defendant States’ election laws 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.

“Elections for federal office must comport with federal constitutional standards. For presidential elections, each state must appoint its electors to the electoral college in a manner that complies with the Constitution,” Paxton said in a statement. “The Electors Clause requirement that only state legislatures may set the rules governing the appointment of electors and elections and cannot be delegated to local officials. The majority of the rushed decisions, made by local officials, were not approved by the state legislatures, thereby circumventing the Constitution.”

The lawsuit against the four states comes as the Trump legal team has filed multiple lawsuits in the states alleging widespread voter fraud impacted the presidential election. Many cases have been dismissed or thrown out by the courts. How do you think the Supreme Court will respond to the cases filed by Paxton?

Look for a 5-4 favorable decision. The FIVE are the “Originalists”, the FOUR are those who think the Constitution is only a malleable guideline. (One of those FOUR is Chief Justice Roberts who has ‘evolved’ into a leftist-activist Justice, stretching the Constitution in ways it never should have been. That and actually changing legislation, the ACA aka Obamacare, by changing the word “fine” to “tax”, enabling him and the Democrats to get it into law.)
I THINK the FIVE will stand by the Constitution. If they do, we’re good. If not…..

Now I do think that is exactly what they did on Tuesday, when they refused to hear a Pennsylvania case which is almost the same as the Texas case, and that was a 9 justice decision, the Constitution says that the Federal Government is not allowed to bother in any state election laws in any way, now the SCOTUS is a Federal Agency part of the Federal Government, so according to the Constitution they are not allowed to rule on state election laws.

This is the symbolic equivalent to defending the Alamo. In contrast to what happened in 1836, the defense of ‘The Alamo’ will crush the enemy in 2020. (aka The Democrat Party).

As a voter in Pennsylvania I feel that the Governor, the State Secretary, and the State Supreme Court Justice conspired together to ignore the US Constitution and PA Constitution and invalidated my vote by arbitrailly permitting votes that did not meet the requirements of arriving before the 8PM Nov 3,2020 cut-off date to be included in the tally of legal votes. Those late arriving votes should not have been included in the final tally of votes. They were and still are illegal. The legislature was ignored on this issue and not consulted. In my mind this is an impeachable offense by all three of the conspirators.

As an expatriate Texan who has been living in exile in Georgia for 30 years now, may God bless the Texas Attorney General. I believe his suit to be justified, and if the Supreme Court of the United States is to retain its credibility going forth, it must hear this case and, based on the merits of the suit filed by the great state of Texas, find in Texas’s favor. The agreement agreed to by Georgia’s Secretary of State and the Democrats in Georgia is unconstitutional because the state legislature here was by-passed and had no say in the agreement that allowed for 2 different standards for voter verification to be used.

We don’t have to have Roberts. If Alito, Thomas, Gorsuch, Kavanaugh, and Barrett uphold the rule of law, we will have a 5-4 win. If Roberts doesn’t want to be made to look the complete fool, he will join them to make it a 6-3 win for truth and justice.

God Bless Texas‼️🙌🏻 It’s obvious of the fraud in the battleground states: 1)Trump beat Biden in most other states by 15-30% of the votes.! 2) Trump was leading way up there even until bedtime for most Americans until the pre-dawn hours. And Biden not only caught up to Trump but passed.! 3) Democrats are notorious for forgery and fraud for the last 4yrs! Democrats would sell out their own mother to get Trump out of office, but at least they bind together. They aren’t turncoats like those in the GOP and MEDIA.! #4) Biden never left his basement.! 5) look up Obama on the Steven Colbert show answering questions about him wanting a third term.! It is verbatim of what Biden did throughout his campaign. !! 6) WHAT IS KAMALA DOING AT THIS TIME.?! Something still very fishy there.!

I think some single judge will stick their head in and decide to stop the suit. Just as they have been doing in suits by Trump and Powell. Before anything can happen we must first find an unbiased judge that will allow suits follow due process and an honest one seems “few and far between”.

But if a do over is enacted this time have armed guards and video cameras over every inch of the process at this time our actual votes are worth more than their weight in gold!!!

Paxton is a great A.G. I hope one day he runs for Governor when Abbott can no longer be Governor. This is one state the Democrat Crime Organization better not mess with. Between the city governments in Austin, Dallas, San Antonio and Houston we have more than our share of Moon Bats and Squirrels. But if the Democrat Crime Machine gets too pushy they may be receiving notice from President Abbott of the Republic of Texas we are no longer supporting the hypocrisy that flows from the D.C. Cesspool.

The Scotus’ have to put everything on hold at this point. Even if it means throwing out this election and ruling that a DO-OVER must take place. The integrity of the United States is at stake. Allowing this election to stand should not and cannot occur, even if Trump were to loose in a subsequent election a few months from now.

We shall see IF the SCOTUS takes up the case. There are too many rabid communists in the “lower courts” (or “judges” that they, and their families were THREATENED by the “deep state” “gestapo”) that are eager to turn our Constitutional republic into a communist-controlled, third-world banana republic, cesspool, and the GULLIBLE, BRAINWASHED fools that voted for dementia-joe and his “HO”, into controlled “subjects” that are under the FALSE impression they will be “cared for ” from cradle to grave. How disappointing it will be when those PROMISED “freebies: and that “special treatment” for voting democommunist never happens.

I do know that some want to keep the voter fraud thing in the news to keep Trump supporters upset, the fact is that the Constitution says that states have the sole responsibility for conduction elections and according to that Constitution the Federal is not suppose to bother with those state election laws, now later laws against discrimination will go into effect if the election laws do discriminate against one of the things mentioned in the discrimination laws. The SCOTUS has refused to even take up a case based on redistricting which is discrimination, saying that is the states responsibility, now the SCOTUS is a Federal agency so does the Constitution say they cannot be involved in election disputes, even between states, now just yesterday they refuse to hear the Pennsylvania case based on the same thing Texas is suing about, so ther similarities are so similar I do think that the SCOTUS will refuse to hear it also. Now these lawyers filing these cases must have went to a different law school than the one I attended or they did not pay attention in Constitutional law classes. There is a third option, that those lawyers actually know better but just trying to keep the pot stirring to be in Trump’s good graces, and trey to make the country look like a clown circus.

We must get this election declared Null & Void and then allow the people to vote IN-PERSON with photo IDs and proof of residency. There is too much evidence of fraud to allow this election to stand. Also with Tucker Carlson’s monologue on how “COMPROMISED” the whole biden family and the demoRAT leadership are by China should keep every American awake at night. China owns them– the demoRATS cannot be allowed to occupy OUR Oval Office.
