Opinion: Lies the Supreme Court Told Me

It's time to telll the Supreme Court, "It's not me, it's you."

In a fashion we must now regard as entirely predictable the Supreme Court of the United States has dismissed (i.e., thrown out) the various state challenges to the 2020 presidential election.

Any decisions on these challenges were determined by the majority to be “moot” because the election had already been decided, and Donald Trump has conceded to Joe Biden. (Associate Justices Thomas, Alito and Gorsuch objected in varying degrees.)

In other words, a stolen presidential election—if it happens, we don’t really know in this case—has an almost immediate statute of limitations, although the results of that election can affect hundreds of millions, if not, as in the case of the United States, nearly the entirety of humanity.

This is true, apparently for a majority of the Supremes, although all sorts of crimes, some not particularly onerous, have statutes of limitations that can go on for years.

Go figure.


 If I sound cynical about the Supreme Court, I have to admit I am. It’s even true of the law in general, which I want to believe in and admire, but increasingly no longer do.

... The law belongs to those who have the deepest control of a society at the time.

Somehow the Supreme Court has morphed from Blind Justice to a rubber stamp of leftist politics. The confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh has either stripped him of his convictions, or since he was never really vetted because of the circus surrounding his confirmation with his high school year book as exhibit A maybe he really doesn’t have any, and then there is the highly touted Amy Coney Barrett who seems to not be living up to expectations.

So the Supremes are not really interested in voter fraud, but on the other hand using Donald Trumps stolen tax records against him is perfectly fine with them. Like everything Washington these days are like living a bad dream. I remember during the Obama presidency I would wonder of a daily basis what was going to assault my sensibilities today, and those days are back as Obama lives thru the so called Biden Presidency.
