Hits: 8

What a bunch of crap. A cop is shot while serving a warrant and what happens? Thug with a history walks. Charges permanently dropped against Breonna Taylor’s boyfriend for shooting officer.

Jefferson Circuit Judge Olu Stevens declared that the charges against Walker would be dismissed with prejudice preventing him from being charged with the March 13 incident that resulted in his girlfriend’s death, the Louisville Courier-Journal reported.

Walker had fired a single shot at police, striking Sgt. Jonathan Mattingly in the leg, as three plainclothes officers executed a search warrant in Taylor’s apartment. He was charged with assault and attempted murder of a police officer

“Our fellow citizens deserve better and expect more of us,” Justice Clarence Thomas declared Monday, when the Supreme Court decided — by one vote –to hear none of the 2020 election cases raising issues of voter fraud and illegal votes.

Why Justice Thomas’s words on the Elections are so Important. I feel that this is so important, so I’m inviting all the folks in my tag groups. Regardless of how you feel about the 2020 Elections, Justice Thomas said things that do point out where he thought politics were played and changes were made to existing laws. That can’t be denied I’m going to post his full response to the courts decision to not hear the Pennsylvania complaints. I’ll highlight what I feel were important points. As always be civil. No name calling. Justice Thomas.

“The Constitution gives to each state legislature authority to determine the ‘Manner’ of federal elections,” began Thomas. “Yet both before and after the 2020 election, nonlegislative officials in various States took it upon themselves to set the rules instead. As a result, we received an unusually high number of petitions and emergency applications contesting those changes. The petitions here present a clear example.”

“The Pennsylvania Legislature established an unambiguous deadline for receiving mail-in ballots: 8 p.m. on election day. Dissatisfied, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court extended that deadline by three days,” Thomas explained, referring to one of the rejected cases. “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.”

“For more than a century, this Court has recognized that the Constitution operates as a limitation upon the State in respect of any attempt to circumscribe the legislative power to regulate federal elections,” he continued, quoting Supreme Court precedent. “Because the Federal Constitution, not state constitutions, gives state legislatures authority to regulate federal elections, petitioners presented a strong argument that the Pennsylvania Supreme Court’s decision violated the Constitution by overriding the clearly expressed intent of the legislature.”

“But elections enable self-governance only when they include processes that give citizens (including the losing candidates and their supporters) confidence in the fairness of the election,” Thomas added, quoting a recent Supreme Court case that held, “Confidence in the integrity of our electoral processes is essential to the functioning of our participatory democracy.”

“Unclear rules threaten to undermine this system. They sow confusion and ultimately dampen confidence in the integrity and fairness of elections,” he explained. “To prevent confusion, we have thus repeatedly — although not as consistently as we should — blocked rule changes made by courts close to an election.”

The mail-deadline case did not impact enough votes to change the 2020 election. “But we may not be so lucky in the future,” Thomas warned. “Indeed, a separate decision by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court may have already altered an election result.”

Thomas surmised:

That is not a prescription for confidence. Changing the rules in the middle of the game is bad enough. Such rule changes by officials who may lack authority to do so is even worse. When those changes alter election results, they can severely damage the electoral system on which our self-governance so heavily depends. If state officials have the authority they have claimed, we need to make it clear. If not, we need to put an end to this practice now before the consequences become catastrophic.

If the Trump appointed attorneys leave, then Biden gets to appoint political hacks.

Hits: 20

If the Trump appointed attorneys leave, then Biden gets to appoint political hacks. Word has it that the Biden administration will ask for the resignation of all the U.S. attorneys appointed by former President Donald Trump barring two exceptions.

John Durham, who was appointed by former Attorney General William Barr to investigate the origins of the Russia probe, will continue with his investigation as special counsel but is expected to resign as the U.S. attorney from Connecticut.

David Weiss, the U.S. attorney for Delaware, will reportedly remain in office and continue to oversee the tax investigation into the president’s son, Hunter Biden.

The Biden administration may also keep the acting U.S. attorney in Washington D.C., Michael Sherwin, onboard as he oversees a sweeping investigation into the January 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol.

The Senate has yet to schedule a confirmation hearing for Biden’s attorney-general nominee, Merrick Garland, a federal appeals court judge who in 2016 was snubbed by Republicans for a seat on the Supreme Court. Let Garland fire these folks and let’s see if it’s legal.

So Joe wants his own hacks in there so they can watch over Antifa and BLM. Protect them in other words.

This information was leaked yesterday to CNN. Reuters, Forbes, ABC and other MSM ran with the story. It looks as if there are 56 attorneys left. I say the ones who were appointed by the Senate should stay.

What say you?

Blue District Paranoia is slapped down. Texas Supreme Court blocks county order for COVID-19 restaurant curfew

Hits: 26

Blue district paranoia is slapped down. Texas Supreme Court blocks county order for COVID-19 restaurant curfew. Austin is a blue area in Texas. So the city and county decided to pull a blue state trick and shut down the economy. They issued orders that Bars and Restaurants needed to go into a lock down. They openly defied the governor and Attorney General.

Well the Texas Supreme Court said not happening.

The Texas Supreme Court blocked local orders establishing an overnight curfew for restaurants to help limit the spread of the coronavirus, according to reports. The court issued the order Friday, conditionally granting state Attorney General Ken Paxton’s petition to block enforcement of orders in Austin and surrounding Travis County.

What say you?
