The Supreme Court has largely rejected election-related lawsuits latey. So many were surprised when the high court agreed to take on a case related to Arizona’s recently-passed laws banning ballot harvesting and tightening controls over provisional ballots. Not only did the Supreme Court take on the case, but it killed liberals’ election-stealing dreams in Arizona.

USA Today reports that the case, which it calls “the most significant to deal with voting rights to come before the court since 2013,” ended with a 6-3 majority vote in favor of the state’s right to deal with ballot harvesting and other unethical behaviors loved by leftists:

Associate Justice Samuel Alito wrote the opinion for a 6-3 majority, joined by the court’s conservatives. Associate Justice Elena Kagan wrote a dissent, joined by the court’s liberals, that described the majority opinion as “tragic.”  

The case, the most significant to deal with voting rights to come before the court since 2013, dealt with two provisions of Arizona’s voting law approved long before the 2020 election. State officials passed a law in 2016 barring unions and advocacy organizations from collecting voters’ mail-in ballots, a practice that critics call “ballot harvesting.” 

Democrat stooge Elena Kagan says that the 6-3 decision is a violation of the Voting Rights Act. “What is tragic here is that the Court has (yet again) rewritten – in order to weaken – a statute that stands as a monument to America’s greatness, and protects against its basest impulses,” she says. “What is tragic is that the court has damaged a statute designed to bring about ‘the end of discrimination in voting.'”   The Left argues that these rules impact communities of color disproportionately — but that argument fizzles out once it leaves the media and enters a courtroom, where evidence can be examined responsibly.

This ruling is bad for Democrats, but good for America.

Imagine this: the Supreme Court has just decided that abortions can happen at 8 months. The Second Amendment, it turns out, only applies to muskets. God cannot be mentioned in schools. If any of these sound horrifying, they may be something you will encounter in the near future if Democrats’ plot to pack the Supreme Court with ultra-liberal swamp people succeeds.

The Intercept, which reported extensively on Joe Biden’s sexual harassment scandal and cognitive decline leading up to the election, has revealed that Democrats plan to pack the Supreme Court to ensure that they can reshape America as they see fit:

The bill would add four seats to the high court, bringing the total to 13 from the current nine. The bill is led by House Judiciary Committee Chair Jerry Nadler, subcommittee Chair Hank Johnson, and first-term Rep. Mondaire Jones. In the Senate, the bill is being championed by Ed Markey of Massachusetts.

This is a response to Congress approving President Trump’s completely legal SCOTUS appointments, an attempt to stack the court back in Democrats’ favor. But while leftists claimed President Trump would do exactly this to ensure a conservative majority, he only replaced people as they retired or died:

After Trump’s nomination of Coney Barrett, then-Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer faced pressure to stop her confirmation by any means necessary. When those myriad options fell short and Coney Barrett was pushed through, the conversation turned to expanding the court.

“Not only do these extremist judges threaten more than a century of progressive achievements,” read a letter to Schumer by 20 New York elected officials, “they threaten to foreclose the possibility of any future progress under a Democratic administration.”

Bernie Sanders supporters and other progressives, naturally, are all for this.

This has been on Biden’s mind for quite some time — though he has been rather coy about it.

…After Democrats lost races they hoped to win in Maine, North Carolina, and Iowa, some Democratic strategists argued that the talk of court packing and ending the filibuster had inspired more Republicans to vote, and discussion of the move was shelved.

In April, President Joe Biden created a commission to study possible reforms to the court, including adding seats. This past October, Biden promised to create such a commission if elected, saying the judicial system was “getting out of whack,” but said, “It’s not about court packing.”

If Democrats succeed here, it is the end of America as we know it. They will use the opportunity to push through any and all extremist, socialist measures they can in as little time as possible. Christians, gun owners, conservatives, people who care about the lives of the unborn or even just freedom as a general concept are at risk. God help us all.
