|The Family Research Council approves of attempts to steal the presidential election from Biden.|
It shouldn't be unbelievable that the Family Research Council has come out supporting what's been called a "long shot" and a "seditious" attempt by Donald Trump and his supporters to overturn the election which he lost to Joe Biden.
First a little background.
Since losing to Biden, Trump and his allies have falsely contended that he actually won by a landslide but because of a massive conspiracy of fraud, Biden turned out to be the victor. They have filed lawsuit after lawsuit across the country attempting to overturn the election on hearsay and discredited, refuted claims. They've lost over 50 cases. Politifact said these losses can be attributed to them not being able to prove widespread fraud, errors, and jurisdictional problems.
But now enters Texas attorney general Ken Paxton with a lawsuit which is not only a sham, but has dangerous repercussions.
According to Raw Story:
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is suing four battleground states — Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin — whose election results handed the White House to President-elect Joe Biden. In the suit, he claims that pandemic-era changes to election procedures in those states violated federal law, and asks the U.S. Supreme Court to block the states from voting in the Electoral College.. . . In a filing to the high court Tuesday, Paxton claims the four battleground states broke the law by instituting pandemic-related changes to election policies, whether “through executive fiat or friendly lawsuits, thereby weakening ballot integrity.” Paxton claimed that these changes allowed for voter fraud to occur — a conclusion experts and election officials have rejected — and said the court should push back a Dec. 14 deadline by which states must appoint their presidential electors.Paxton's claims of fraud are the same ones which were practically laughed out of court in several of the over 50 cases I mentioned earlier. The courts found that the claims simply were not proven.Still, the lawsuit is asking the Supreme Court to nullify the results of those four battleground states, thereby removing 62 electoral college points from Biden and then allowing the House of Representatives in those states - all GOP majority - to vote for the presidential candidate.
. . .this is a press release masquerading as a lawsuit. Texas doesn’t have standing to raise these claims as it has no say over how other states choose electors; it could raise these issues in other cases and does not need to go straight to the Supreme Court; it waited too late to sue; the remedy Texas suggests of disenfranchising tens of millions of voters after the fact is unconstitutional; there’s no reason to believe the voting conducted in any of the states was done unconstitutionally; it’s too late for the Supreme Court to grant a remedy even if the claims were meritorious (they are not). What utter garbage. Dangerous garbage, but garbage.
If Joe Biden wins the presidency because state officials ignored their own laws, it won't just be Donald Trump who's lost -- it'll be the people of Texas, Alabama, South Carolina, Florida, and so many others who've lost their right to be represented. Those voters deserve to be heard. And thanks to 18 state attorneys general, they might finally get the chance. Like the 40 other lawsuits challenging the November 3rd results, the media doesn't give this one a chance. But unlike the 40 other lawsuits, the press has decided to lift its blackout and comment. Could they be worried about the Texas case? Their over-the-top reaction certainly makes it seem that way. In outlets all across the country, reporters are frantically trying to dismiss the states' argument, calling it "laughable," "utter garbage," "far-fetched," and "doomed."But is it? Rep. Mike Johnson (R-La.), who's leading the effort to get House Republicans on board, doesn't think so. If there's fraud (and pages of court filings say there was) and a coordinated effort to rewrite local election laws, then any state that Trump won has a legitimate beef. Texas, Indiana, Louisiana, Kansas -- you name it -- they'll have been deprived of representation. And that's what's at the heart of the case that President Trump calls "the big one." .. . .The bottom line is that by ignoring Article II and the 14th Amendment, Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin are disenfranchising the voters of Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Missouri, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, and West Virginia. Every one of these states has skin in the game. As Mike said, "Look, it's a national election. All of our votes, at some stage, get lumped in together. And you're diluting the lawful votes of persons who had constitutional systems in place when you allow this to go unchecked elsewhere in the country."
