Destroying American Democracy (12-12-2020)


The State of Texas’s motion for leave to file a bill of complaint is denied for lack of standing under Article III of the Constitution. Texas has not demonstrated a judicially cognizable interest in the manner in which another State conducts its elections. All other pending motions are dismissed as moot. Statement of Justice Alito, with whom Justice Thomas joins: In my view, we do not have discretion to deny the filing of a bill of complaint in a case that falls within our original jurisdiction. See  American Arizona v. California, 589 U. S. ___ (Feb. 24, 2020) (Thomas, J., dissenting). I would therefore grant the motion to file the bill of complaint but would not grant other relief, and I express no view on any other issue.

The above Order of the Supreme Court of the United States was the final and definite NO to the bizar and dangerous efforts by Trump to ask the Courts of the United States to overturn the results of the Presidential elections. No need to explain why Trump refuses to concede his losses.As a narcisist he never learned to accept  defeat, as President he never learned  - like Lukashenko in Belarus - to understand democracy and the rule of law. Much reason to be shocked by the absolutely irresponsible Republican Party politicians to go along with the poisoning and the destruction of American democracy. And respect for all American judges and justices who performed their mission to defend the rule of law.
