No one should be too excited about this bit of DC Swamp Kabuki Theater.
Your case is basically moot now? Ok, let’s get it on the docket for consideration! – Now that the DC Swamp’s sock puppet, China Joe Biden, has been installed safely in the Oval Office and surrounded by a National Guard security perimeter, the Washington Examiner reports that the Supreme Court has finally agreed to consider hearing some election challenge cases that would have been ripe two months ago.
Now? Not so much.
Regardless, the Court has agreed to “consider” whether or not to hear the Pennsylvania election case, Sidney Powell’s Michigan election case, and Lin Wood’s Georgia election case.
From the story at the Washington Examiner:
The Supreme Court on Friday listed several high-profile election lawsuits for consideration at its mid-February conference.
The cases include challenges to the 2020 election from Trump-aligned lawyers Lin Wood and Sidney Powell, as well as Republican Rep. Mike Kelly’s Pennsylvania lawsuit. Nearly every lawsuit takes issue with the expanded use of mail-in ballots by many states.
The decision came after the court declined to fast-track all election-related litigation in early January.
In nearly every plea for expedition, lawyers backing former President Donald Trump told the court that if the cases were not heard before President Biden’s inauguration, their success would be unlikely.
But after the court pushed them off, many lawyers said that the challenges were still important and could have long-term implications for election fairness. Trump lawyer John Eastman told the Washington Examiner that even with Trump out of office, it was important to settle the issues raised by expanded mail-in voting.
“Our legal issue,” he said, referring to the way in which Pennsylvania conducted the 2020 election, “remains important and in need of the court’s review.”
Similarly, Kelly’s lawyer Greg Teufel, told the Washington Examiner after the court refused to hear his case before the inauguration that the 10-year congressman and major Trump ally had no intention of dropping the suit.
But don’t get your hopes up: It is highly likely the Court will find some technicality or procedural grounds for refusing to actually agree to hear any of these cases, since it became clear during November and December that it can dig up a rationale for refusing to hear any case it doesn’t want to hear, regardless of the merits involved. There is no question, for example, that the Pennsylvania case clearly involved a blatant violation of the constitution by the Pennsylvania legislature and courts, and deserved to be fast tracked, but the Court dummied up a reason not to hear it in a timely manner nonetheless.
Even if the Court should deign to hear one of the cases just to try to make it look as if it is diligently trying to do its job – which it plainly has not been doing – that case or cases will not be heard until next October.
Bottom line, this is all just another bit of DC Swamp Kabuki Theater, a farce acted out for the benefit of the corrupt news media, which will in turn heap praise on “system” for “working.”
But the system is rigged, and we all know it. As George Carlin used to famously tell us, it’s a big club and we aren’t in it.
That is all.
