Any fraud is not OK 

That’s a great post.  Can’t wait to hear the response if it happens.         No, probably not.  I’m not so sure he has accepted Biden because he’s here everyday bashing anything

The Supreme Court is scheduled for preliminary hearings on voting irregularities in 2 States today......   Will they move to pursue them?.......if so will they be fast tracked or schedu

Supreme Court to hear major test of voting rights law

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court takes up a court fight Tuesday over voting rights in the battleground state of Arizona, and the outcome may affect how the nation's courts resolve clashes over election laws in dozens of other states.

The case also will be a test of one of the most important civil rights laws — the Voting Rights Act, which the Supreme Court significantly scaled back in 2013.

Two Arizona laws are at issue in the virtual oral arguments before the justices. One requires election officials to reject ballots cast in the wrong precincts. The other concerns voting by mail and provides that only the voter, a family member or a caregiver can collect and deliver a completed ballot.

 

"Prohibiting unlimited third-party ballot harvesting is a commonsense means of protecting the secret ballot," the state told the justices in court filings. The out-of-precinct rule is intended to prevent multiple voting, Arizona said.

But Arizona Democrats said the state has a history of switching polling places more often in minority neighborhoods and putting the polls in places intended to cause mistakes. Minorities move more often and are less likely to own homes, resulting in the need to change polling places, Democrats said.

Arizona far outpaces other states in discarding out-of-precinct ballots, rejecting 11 times more than the next-highest state. And minority voters are more likely to need help turning in their ballots, the challengers said. In many states where the practice is legal, community activists offer ballot collection to encourage voting.

A federal judge in Arizona rejected the challenges. But the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals reversed, so the state appealed to the Supreme Court.

In the past, the Voting Rights Act required states with histories of discrimination to get permission from courts or the Justice Department before changing election procedures. The test was whether would a change leave minority voters worse off. But in 2013 the Supreme Court suspended the preclearance requirement, ruling that Congress failed to properly update the formula to determine which states should be covered.

Under what's left of the law, the 9th Circuit said, state election provisions can be blocked if they disproportionately affect a racial minority's ability to participate in the electoral process and elect candidates of their choice and if the state has a history of discriminating against voters in that minority group. It concluded that the two Arizona laws failed those legal tests.

But the lower courts have disagreed about how to tell whether a change in voting practice violates the law.

Arizona Republicans say the test should require proof that a challenged law causes a substantial disparity in opportunities for minority voters to participate in the election, not just an incremental burden. For example, the state says, when considering a challenge to a law closing the polls half an hour earlier, courts should consider the election system as a whole and look at other voting opportunities, such as voting by mail or early voting.

But Arizona Democrats say that the law does not require proof of a "substantial disparity" and that there is no requirement to meet a minimum percentage of minority voters affected to successfully challenge a change in the voting rules.

The test advocated by Arizona, the American Civil Liberties Union argued in a friend of court brief, would impose "a categorical approach under which laws that are relatively commonplace, or that do not make voting altogether impossible, are largely immune from liability."

But Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas and other Republicans said the interpretation of the law advocated by Democrats would jeopardize any neutral voting law if it results in an unequal opportunity to vote whenever "a challenger identifies a minimal statistical racial disparity related to the law — and then points to completely separate, long past, invidious voting discrimination."

The Supreme Court will issue its ruling by the summer.

How about this, if the SC determines there was overwhelming fraud in the election and President Trump won by a landslide victory, and is reinstated for his second term, will you accept him as the duly elected president?

They didn't accept the lesser Bush as Prez, you think that given any proof of fraud that would make Trump the true POTUS even though Biden already took the Oath that anyone on the "woke" side of the aisle accept Trump? C'mon man! You are smarter than that!

Good points......yet....?

 

Sooner or later the SC will step up.... if they just let this slide so as not to create waves....kiss the country good bye....

 

Trump hit the SC hard last night during his speech...people are questioning the SC.... 

 

The major ruling ahead is on the Constitutionality of the Governor's or SOS's changing the rules against what the State guidelines permitted.....that being only the State legislatures are authorized to make those calls....

 

The SC has to take this up.... it's their job......and as I said.....if they don't.....kiss the US good bye......or have a civil war.....or the military moves in....

 

IMO the SC will determine that the Governors/SOS's acted illegally in the 5 swing states, as well as others.....and the results from those States will be thrown out.....resulting  in new elections.....    CL

You missed the point. They, the so-called "woke" side of the aisle, demoncraps, haven't accepted a repube president since Lincoln. What makes you think they will accept any repube as President? Could care less what happens now with the election results, no matter what happens and you could turn over 57 states results at this point it won't change a thing since we have a wussy GOPe full of RINOs and repubes in office. The Marxist Revolution of Muricah has begun and ain't a damn thing most can do about it except keep our barrels clean, well oiled and well used when the SRHTF.

Those ears weren't deaf. It's called selective hearing and they selected not to hear you.

You were done lost before you even opened the thread if you got lost near the end. Just hope you know your declination to point true. If not you are going to be off by a long shot.

Perhaps instead of posting in riddles why don't you just lay it all out for all of us poor clueless lost souls......

 

If you really have the inside info.....spill it in plain English.... Then perhaps we'll confirm the info you provide....  CL

Your response is just what I figured it would be.....a little more respectfulness in your posts would be appreciated....you aren't at all "above" the rest here on DV.....

My communication skills are fine. I spoke plain English. If you don't know what declination means, go look it up. Or maybe instead of whining and moaning behind a computer people got out and did things instead of hiding behind a computer screen that you would actually know what near the end of that aforementioned paragraph meant. Poor AdamHenry got so hurt he had to use an alias to deliver a red dot. See that is what I mean.

You apparently don't even know what you were trying to say... .at least you seem incapable of any explanation......

 

Once again.....break it down for all of the DV simpletons like myself.......what does the political future of the US have in store for the citizens......spell it out.....    CL

Oh, you can't hurt me. Funny your arogance brings you to that conclusion. You truly suffer from the Dunning-Kruger effect.

Funny your didactic attempt of a pugilistic broadside to insult was as if an australopithecus had attempted it with the wrong declination, but really resembled nothing more than an anthropopithecus  with an astounding  high level of opprobrium. Ignorance is curable and stupidity is an incurable disease to which that is an unfortunate  disease you have succumbed to.

You sure love to break out that thesaurus to try and boost your perceived intelligence level. Nice try! 😂
