Trump has not been in a position to show one case of voter fraud, and this newest lawsuit from Texas did not even allege fraud. It simply argued that states like Pennsylvania and Georgia didn’t adequately suppress the vote like they did in Texas. The case, as you need to know, was ridiculous in each sense of the phrase. The corrupt Texas legal professional basic, Ken Paxton, who’s bucking for his own pardon, basically argued that states like Georgia made Trump lose by extending early and mail-in voting—which is exactly what Texas did.
By no means thoughts that the Structure particularly says that states can run their very own elections as they see match, and by no means thoughts which you could’t argue election guidelines after an election, and by no means thoughts that Texas had no standing to sue. (Though a part of me actually hoped that SCOTUS would have taken this case up. I have my reasons.)
The truth that a consultant of the USA authorities is okay with overthrowing an election (and let’s not say “overturn,”—let’s name this coup what it’s), is seditious and, I might argue, treasonous since we’ve been in a struggle with Vladimir Putin. As a substitute of preventing us head-on, Putin has as a substitute efficiently taken management of a significant U.S. occasion to destroy us from inside. Waltz is both a coward who’s afraid to face up for democracy or is significantly okay with turning us right into a growing autocracy beholden to Russian pursuits. The one factor I do know for certain is that he doesn’t need to symbolize the USA.
Kudos to the Orlando Sentinel for calling this assault on our democracy what it’s. Others must comply with swimsuit. Sure, it’s embarrassing and did not go wherever, however that’s not the purpose. Republicans know that the overwhelming majority of Individuals rejected their platform. As a substitute of adjusting their platform, they merely determined to reject democracy. Utah Sen. Mike Lee didn’t misspeak when he argued against “rank democracy” in this country. The GOP has turn out to be harmful, authoritarian, and fascist below Trump, and it seems to be like they’ll be staying that method after Trump.
