SCOTUS declines to hear cases related to election rule changes in Pennsylvania

The U.S. Supreme Court has once again upset countless conservatives with a ruling related to the validity of November’s presidential election.

According to reports, the high court on Monday refused to hear cases related to the legality of changes to mail-in voting in Pennsylvania prior to Election Day.

Three conservative justices dissent

Three conservative justices — Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, and Samuel Alito — dissented, arguing that the court left important questions unanswered with potential implications for future elections.

At the center of these rejected cases are assertions by former President Donald Trump and many of his allies who have complained that Democratic state officials changed voting procedures and protocols unilaterally — and illegally — in swing states. Critics say these changes undermined election integrity and made voter fraud easier to perpetuate.

The controversy cast a long and dark shadow over the race, leaving millions of Americans with residual doubts regarding the manner in which the winner was decided. Although the contest has been clearly decided in President Joe Biden’s favor, the Supreme Court still refuses to address these lingering questions.

Justices shot down a challenge from Pennsylvania Republicans related to that state’s Supreme Court allowance for mail-in ballots received up to three days after the election to be counted.

The matter remained unresolved when it first appeared before the Supreme Court in October, shortly before the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

“An ideal opportunity”

At that time, the court was evenly split on the issue, declining to take it up again on an expedited basis when Amy Coney Barrett was sworn in as a justice.

In its decision on Monday, the court also refused to hear a case from U.S. Rep. Mike Kelly (R-PA) that challenged a 2019 law allowing no-excused mail-in voting in the state.

The high court did not include an explanation for its rejection of the cases. Trump nominees Barrett and Brett Kavanaugh joined liberals on the court.

In his statement of dissent, Thomas criticized how election rules were changed “in the middle of the game,” claiming that the court had abdicated its responsibility to settle important questions related to election integrity.

“These cases provide us with an ideal opportunity to address just what authority nonlegislative officials have to set election rules, and to do so well before the next election cycle. The refusal to do so is inexplicable,” he wrote.

  1. Extremely disappointed with Barrett and Kavanaugh for voting against the obvious. Anyone can see that you can’t change the rules in the middle of the game. Whose team are they on?? Truth or injustice. ??????

    1. Obviously, injustice prevails. Roberts is useless and I believe, compromised in some way. You have to be to think there is nothing wrong.

    2. Tragic injustice for America! They can not justify what they have done, even if they were threatened, without speaking up and hiding, it will only get worse! So sad for our country!!

    3. Its ok next time there’s an election there will be 500 million votes for the 350 million voters. There is no such thing as voter fruad after all.

      WE can all cheat as much as we want to.

    4. Agree agree agree. Well looks like not such great choices after all and after all the drama to get them there and what a terrible day in this country. We will have them forever. Omg

  3. I personally feel that the government has corruption throughout all of it’s divisions.
    If there is a questionable crime committed as to this magnitude…
    WHY, WHY, WHY won’t SCOTUS want to set the record right?

  4. There are only two people who have power in the world. Those two are GOD AND HIS SON LORD JESUS CHRIST OUR LORD AND SAVIOR. EVERYBODY HAS TO ANSWER TO THOSE TWO.

  5. Roberts stated the SC would take up the cases after January 20th. He’s lied again to the American citizenry!!! With that said, the majority of the SCOTUS has betrayed us once too often!!!!
    “We dissent . . . because the powers vested in Congress by this constitution, must necessarily annihilate and absorb the legislative, executive, and judicial powers of he several states, and produce from their ruins one consolidated government, which from the nature of things will be an iron handed despotism, as nothing short of the supremacy of despotic sway could connect and govern these United States under one government. . . . [I]t would . . . produce a despotism, and that not by the usual gradations, but with the celerity that has hitherto only attended revolutions effected by the sword.” (The Address and Reasons of Dissent of the Minority of the Convention of Pennsylvania to their Constituents, December 18, 1787), in R. Ketchum, ed., The Anti-Federalist Papers, pp. 237-256).

  6. Well, I guess we are all seeing that the SCOTUS is part of the DC swamp. It is highly disappointing to see the highest court in our country is showing themselves as being corrupt. I guess Laws and the Constitution are things of the past.

  7. This shows that the Supreme Court deserves no respect and is a partisan entity. If election integrity isn’t important enough to be foremost in their agenda, then of what good are they.

  8. Maybe they were told that their families would be hurt or killed! So they voted no and is killing the America we know and love. Or maybe they got bought off for their votes? Or maybe they are not what we thought they were True Patriots of The United States of America. What do you think?

    1. Probably were threatened but if we succumb to threats and intimidation instead of outing them and standing up to the satanic thugs then you can bet it will continue and get worse until they own your country! Thank you Clarence Thomas for taking your oath seriously.

  9. I believe early on when Barrett was being vetted for the position there was a bit of scuttle butt talk about the adoption of those kids of hers. And now recently I have read there is question as to if that was a legal adoption or something done under the table to which now she is being blackmailed with it.
    At any rate, she stated she would abide by the constitution when she was before the senate and now here we are. Yet another 2 added to the corrupt list.
    What a shame.

    1. An article from the day before yesterday stated that Amy Barrett was not allowed in on the vote as to whether to take up the case or not. Stop blaming her!

      1. I believe that was immediately after she was seated not now, but I would like to know the status on that. There would be no way they could do that to her at this point.

  10. Our Supreme Court has proven they are not for the American People. That’s for sure! This is why we must pray more then ever that justice must prevail and we the people are important to maintain the integrity of America. Then watch God do his work. Thank you for letting me speak.

  11. No surprise that Barrett and Kavanaugh turned out to be spinless judges and afraid to go against the dems. The SCOTUS has lost all respect. Allowing a coup d’etat in a presidential election proves it.

  12. Richard, I suspect that they flipped for one of two reasons–or maybe both,

    1, Both Amy Coney Barrett and Brett Kavanaugh have young children. Could some scoundrel from Mr. Soros’ camp or other areas of the Deep state have threatened their children>

    2, Both were Trump appointees. Perhaps they were afraid if they voted in his favour, they would appear to be his “stooges” instead of thinking for themselves.

    Either way, their votes were unfortunate. I would say, let’s keep our eyes on their future votes before we write them off competely.

  13. There will be no future votes as important as these regarding election integrity. In my view they’ve sold out we the people and the constitution right when we need them the most.

  14. Yet again anther “no” from these shysters we pay to put things right! It would appear that once again they think we work for them. No, wrong yet again. You work for us and you’d better start doing it or you can look for another job! Get with it all of you and stop playing games with us and our money!

  15. Exceedingly disappointing the SCOTUS will say co2 is dangerous and will not settle the rules of our elections where laws were obviously wrong. Changing the rules in the middle of the process without proper authority is fine with them. COWARDS impartial NOT weak YES!!!! So much for their supporting the rule of the law!!!!!!

  16. ALL THAT IS PROVED BY THIS DUPLICITOUS AND UNCONSTITUTIONAL REFUSAL BY THE SJC, is that there IS no equitable justice available from them and that, collectively, they are moral cowards and have been increasingly so since Roe V Wade in 1973! THEY ARE USELESS! THEY ARE AN UTTER DISGRACE TO THE RULE OF LAW THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO DEFEND AND UPHOLD!

  17. The SCOTUS is to decide the constitutionality of what is brought before them. That is their appointed job. I do not believe they can pick or choose what they
    hear and retain their integrity as Judge Thomas stated. The Constitution states election law is set by the legislatures of the individual states. This was clearly violated in Pennsylvania in accordance to the state Constitution. This in turn makes it unconstitutional according to the Constitution of the United States. If
    there were no illegal acts or fraudulent activity then show your hand. They know what will be found and that is why they refuse to see evidence. I am a registered democrat but very ashamed of a fallen party. Same feeling for a very corrupt governor. Wolff your days are done.

  18. The Supreme Court has lost their legitimacy by declining to hear cases related to election rule changes.

    Justice Thomas stated “The decision to leave election law hidden beneath a shroud of doubt is baffling,” he wrote. “By doing nothing, we invite further confusion and erosion of voter confidence. Our fellow citizens deserve better and expect more of us.”

    After having sat on the lawsuit for four months, none of the justices in the majority explained their reasoning.

  19. Phucing SCOTUS probably bought and paid for by the top 17 families of the global thieving banking system who have been robbing the World not to mention the vatican is probably in on it too. Only way to clean all this mess up is to start slinging hot lead.
