Trump has not been capable of 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 it’s best to know, was ridiculous in each sense of the phrase. The corrupt Texas lawyer 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 that you may’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 america 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 battle with Vladimir Putin. As an alternative of preventing us head-on, Putin has as an alternative efficiently taken management of a serious U.S. get together 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 creating autocracy beholden to Russian pursuits. The one factor I do know for certain is that he doesn’t need to signify america.
Kudos to the Orlando Sentinel for calling this assault on our democracy what it’s. Others have to comply with swimsuit. Sure, it’s embarrassing and did not go anyplace, however that’s not the purpose. Republicans know that the overwhelming majority of Individuals rejected their platform. As an alternative 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 grow to be harmful, authoritarian, and fascist below Trump, and it appears like they’ll be staying that method after Trump.
