The Amy Coney Barrett confirmation is already yielding dividends. – In yet another decision in which compromised Chief Justice John Roberts sided with the three communists in the court, Justice Amy Coney Barrett provided the winning margin in a decision that tosses out some of Andrew Cuomo’s draconian attacks in religious freedoms in the state of New York.
Justice Barrett also was able to author the majority, 5-4 decision that rolls back Cuomo’s absurd restrictions that limits church attendance to as few as 10 people in certain parts of the state.
From a story at Daily Wire:
In a 5-4 ruling late Wednesday night, the Supreme Court backed a religious challenge to Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s restrictions limiting attendance at religious services. The majority ruling blocks enforcement of the restrictions while the applicants pursue appellate review. The ruling highlights the lack of evidence that the applicants — the Roman Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn, two Jewish synagogues, and an Orthodox Jewish organization — have contributed to the spread of the virus and questions the rationale of the specifics of Cuomo’s restrictions, which limited services to just 10 and 25 occupants for red and orange zones, respectively.
“Not only is there no evidence that the applicants have contributed to the spread of COVID–19 but there are many other less restrictive rules that could be adopted to minimize the risk to those attending religious services,” the decision reads. “Among other things, the maximum attendance at a religious service could be tied to the size of the church or synagogue. Almost all of the 26 Diocese churches immediately affected by the Executive Order can seat at least 500 people, about 14 can accommodate at least 700, and 2 can seat over 1,000. Similarly, Agudath Israel of Kew Garden Hills can seat up to 400. It is hard to believe that admitting more than 10 people to a 1,000–seat church or 400–seat synagogue would create a more serious health risk than the many other activities that the State allows.”
“Members of this Court are not public health experts, and we should respect the judgment of those with special expertise and responsibility in this area,” the ruling asserts. “But even in a pandemic, the Constitution cannot be put away and forgotten. The restrictions at issue here, by effectively barring many from attending religious services, strike at the very heart of the First Amendment’s guarantee of religious liberty. Before allowing this to occur, we have a duty to conduct a serious examination of the need for such a drastic measure.”
“The applicants have made the showing needed to obtain relief, and there is no reason why they should bear the risk of suffering further irreparable harm in the event of another reclassification,” the ruling concludes. “For these reasons, we hold that enforcement of the Governor’s severe restrictions on the applicants’ religious services must be enjoined.”
Glorious. God Bless Donald Trump, Mitch McConnell and the majority in the U.S. Senate for confirming this good woman to the Court in the face of so much media news-fakery and hostility. Once again, we see perhaps the lone good reason to continue voting for RINOs over their communist Democrat opponents. This is one of the few places it still truly matters.
The Kraken is released! – Sidney Powell released her Kraken on Wednesday evening – a lawsuit detailing allegations of massive election fraud in Georgia and Michigan – and the book burners at Twitter immediately blocked any tweets linking to the lawsuit’s text.
So, just for fun, here’s a link to the text of the complaint.
Many idiots in the media slammed Powell for not including her “evidence” supporting the claims made in the complaint, demonstrating conclusively that they have no clue about the difference between a complaint, which lays out allegations of harm, and a trial, where evidences supporting the veracity of the allegations is actually rolled out by plaintiffs. But hey, this is just par for the course for our corrupt national news media.
Here’s an excerpt from a story at Breitbart:
Attorney Sidney Powell filed lawsuits Wednesday challenging the results of the presidential vote in Georgia and Michigan, alleging “ballot stuffing,” which she alleges was “amplified and rendered virtually invisible by computer software created and run by domestic and foreign actors.”
Powell made similar claims last week at a press conference with President Donald Trump’s legal team. She was attacked by critics who claimed that she could not prove what she alleged. The legal team distanced themselves from her on Sunday, saying that her claims had gone beyond the evidence they had seen or could prove in court.
Powell — who also defended Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, pardoned by President Trump on Wednesday — accepted the decision but pressed ahead regardless.
She alleges in Georgia:
Mathematical and statistical anomalies rising to the level of impossibilities, as shown by affidavits of multiple witnesses, documentation, and expert testimony evince this scheme across the state of Georgia. Especially egregious conduct arose in Forsyth, Paulding, Cherokee, Hall, and Barrow County. This scheme and artifice to defraud affected tens of thousands of votes in Georgia alone and “rigged” the election in Georgia for Joe Biden.
Powell makes similar allegations in Michigan, noting an “especially egregious range of conduct in Wayne County and the City of Detroit, though this conduct occurred throughout the State at the direction of Michigan state election officials.”
Powell traces the fraud to “software and hardware from Dominion Voting Systems Corporation,” which she said derives from software created by “Smartmatic Corporation, which became Sequoia in the United States.”
She goes on to allege, in both the Georgia and the Michigan complaints, “Smartmatic and Dominion were founded by foreign oligarchs and dictators to ensure computerized ballot-stuffing and vote manipulation to whatever level was needed to make certain Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez never lost another election.”
So, a lot of the same stuff Powell has been alleging for a couple of weeks now, but this time in formal court filing that will ultimately lead to her having to present her evidence soon enough. She will certainly have plenty to present and talk about given that the lawsuit contains 30 separate allegations of fraud in Georgia alone.
This should be epic. – Adding to the Georgia fun, President Trump told the assembled communist Democrat activists who call themselves the White House Press Corps that he will be holding a rally in that state on December 5:
I’m excited to welcome @realDonaldTrump back to Georgia next Saturday for a rally with @Perduesenate & me! We will ALWAYS have his back — and I’m so honored he has ours! #gapol #gasen pic.twitter.com/7it5FYEuSP

As the Fox News chyron indicates, the President made that announcement as he criticized RINO Georgia Sec. of State Brad Raffensperger, who continues to to oppose the conduct of a real audit of the ballots allegedly cast by legal and living people in Fulton County. So odd that he would be so virulently against such a standard and innocuous election security procedure, isn’t it?
You can bet Raffensperger is all lawyered-up and anxiously waiting to see what Powell’s evidence is going to reveal about his own actions related to the November 3 election.
This is a long, long way from over, folks.
That is all.
