Trump Will Win When Justice Is Done!

The evidence seems to be overwhelming that massive voter fraud has occurred in at least six states: Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, North Carolina, and Wisconsin.

In 2018, the North Carolina State government ordered that due to similar illegal vote harvesting and absentee ballot fraud, the House election for the state’s ninth Congressional District had to be redone, as it was not possible to determine which votes were valid and which were not.

There’s sufficient legal precedent for Trump to petition the Supreme Court to similarly declare that the popular votes for the 2020 Electoral College from at least these six states must be set aside, since, as in the 2018 North Carolina election, there’s no way to distinguish valid from invalid votes.

What form has this election fraud taken? Let’s mention just a few of the all too many ways:
  • Republican scrutineers were precluded from getting any closer than 10 feet from where the ballots were validated. In some cases, they were kept 25 feet away. This is way too far away to prevent chicanery in either case. This allows mail-in votes with unverified signatures to be counted.
  • There was a software “glitch” in Antrim County, Michigan, that initially turned the vote totals from Trump to Biden. But this is likely the tip of the iceberg of such errors.
  • Biden significantly out-polled lower office Democrats. Blue voters typically pull the lever not only for the president, but also for the senator, congressman, etc. Does this gap mean that someone forgot to stuff these ballots also? Lots of Biden votes were “cast” suspiciously, but not for these other down ballot Democratic candidates.
  • Numerous allegations of post office fraud have surfaced. Workers have claimed their supervisors asked them to pre-date postmark dates on mail-in ballots. Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito ordered that late arriving ballots be separated from the others in Pennsylvania. That was a step in the right direction, but only a baby step. The rot goes far deeper than that.
  • Not only are the mail-in ballots problematic but there are also alleged software errors. Suspiciously, they appear to be mainly in one direction. Guess which? Yes, against the present and future president of these United States.
  • There was a record turnout in Michigan, almost 90 percent in some jurisdictions; this is unprecedented.
  • Nor must we ever forget the always important cemetery vote. We wouldn’t want to exclude dead people from the ballot box; they have rights!
Last on this list, but very far from least, are mathematical considerations:
  • There’s a suspicious statistical bifurcation. Viewership of election coverage was way down, while the number of ballots has skyrocketed.
  • There were statistical anomalies regarding Biden votes; late mail-in dumps favored Biden to a wildly improbable degree.
In a presidential election, the Constitution doesn’t allow for a repeat of the vote. Instead, this foundational document requires the legislature of each state to appoint the electors. All states had previously ordered that these electors were to be determined by popular vote.

Since allegations of massive fraud have made the winner of the popular vote impossible to determine, the Supreme Court should mandate that the legislatures in each state appoint the electors instead. (Article II, Section 1: “Each State shall appoint, in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct, a Number of Electors, equal to the whole Number of Senators and Representatives to which the State may be entitled in the Congress …”)

Should some of the states decline to do so, resulting in neither Biden nor Trump having the necessary 270 electoral votes, then the Supreme Court should rule that the next president should be decided in the House of Representatives, as the Constitution requires. The Constitution specifies that in the case of no majority in the Electoral College, each State in the House gets exactly one vote, and the candidate with the majority of the 50 votes in the House becomes the next president. (Article II, section 1: “… if no Person have a Majority, then … the said House [of Representatives] shall … chuse the President. But in chusing the President, the Votes shall be taken by States, the Representation from each State having one Vote …”)

The Supreme Court is necessarily going to get involved in this most unfortunate election. There is precedent for this: the Bush/Gore decision made in 2000. But it should leave the final decision to the political branches, to the state legislatures and to the House of Representatives. The Supreme Court’s only role should be to enforce the Constitution’s guarantee that each state have a republican form of government. Massive voter fraud, if allowed to go unchallenged, will end not only the republican form of government in the individual states, but also for the entire United States of America.

I strongly predict that when full justice is done in this manner, Trump will occupy the White House for another four years. I expect a Supreme Court vote along these lines of at least 5-4. If Justice John Roberts steps up and does the right thing, it will likely be by a 6-3 vote.
