This week Attorney General Patrick Morrisey, while dealing with recovering from Coronavirus, stood up and did his job. Regardless of his condition he once again stood up for a State that has traditionally been ignored nationally, and once again asserted our voice on the national stage. I applaud Attorney General Morrisey for his bold stand in filing an Amicus Curiae brief in Texas v. Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin, US Supreme Court Docket No. 22O155, Original.
As of yesterday, the Supreme Court denied the motion of Texas to file a bill of complaint for lack of standing under Article III of the U.S. Constitution. Justices Alito and Thomas dissented in the decision, stating “we do not have discretion to deny the filing of a bill of complaint that falls within our original jurisdiction.”
While this is a heavy blow to legal efforts to challenge the blatant disregard of state election law by Executive Officers in the Defendant states, that does not mean the basis of the arguments are without merit. In West Virginia we have law that states when an absentee ballot may be requested and provided, and under what circumstances an individual may cast an absentee ballot. Many states have similar laws, and many states ignored these laws during the 2020 Primary and General Elections. Many Executives used the cover of a “pandemic” to run roughshod over election law that had been settled for over a century in many cases. Across the nation Executives ignored laws demanding an individual request an absentee ballot, and simply mass-mailed blank absentee ballot requests to the entire voting population. Millions of ballots were mailed out like Sunday grocery circulars and extended warranty applications, with millions never being returned. For the media to stand by and say “there were no irregularities” with this practice is nothing less than myopic.
Time and time again we hear the talking heads in the media talk about the peaceful transfer of power after a clean election with no irregularities while these glaring illegal acts are not addressed. That is exactly what Texas v. Pennsylvania, et al sought to address. This action led to questions by the public that will likely never be answered and will lead to a Presidency that will never be viewed as legitimate by a significant number of Americans. The Supreme Court had an opportunity to fulfill its role of settling disputes between states, and they sat idly by acquiescing to the greatest and most widespread violation of election law in American history.
We have sold ourselves on the idea that American elections are the world standard for fair elections. Nothing could be further from the truth. For over 100 years we have sent our intelligence forces across the globe meddling in elections from Iran to Guatemala, spreading misinformation in foreign lands and assisting dictators friendly to the US in maintaining their hold on power for decades beyond when their own people would have voted them out. Since March of 2020 these same tactics have been utilized within our own borders, in our own communities, to achieve the result desired by a select few powerful individuals. President Trump endured a sham impeachment, constant allegations of Russian collusion that proved completely false, a near media blackout of his campaign, complete shutdowns of nearly every state preventing his ability to campaign, +100% voter turnout in many liberal jurisdictions, videos of suitcases of ballots appearing in the middle of the night, Republican poll workers being banned from the counting rooms across the country, electronic voting irregularities that have never been investigated, and a social media cabal that routinely suppressed conservative dialogue and improperly fact-checked information utilizing leftist propaganda.
The Department of Justice confirmed that they intentionally withheld from the public confirmation of Hunter Biden’s improper activities regarding CEFC China Energy, as well as the potential involvement of Kamala Harris. The media has ignored this information and continued to chant like the sheep on Orwell’s Animal Farm “Biden good, Trump bad.”
Attorney General Morrisey took a stand for his constituents that demanded action. For answering the call of the vast majority of the State and fulfilling his role as the State’s Chief Attorney he has come under fire by yet another left-leaning talking head. Manchin sycophant and perennial fence-sitter Hoppy Kercheval took aim at Attorney General Morrisey stating in the most recent entry of his bully pulpit that “The longer Morrisey, Warner and other leading Republicans in the state help perpetuate the falsehood that the election was “stolen,” the more they themselves contribute to an undermining of the cherished practice of free and fair elections and the peaceful transfer of power.”
Again, the media is seen pushing the narrative and shaming free-thinking citizens for questioning the validity of the blatantly invalid. Like Boxer on the Animal Farm, our local liberal talking head may as well have named his latest entry “Napoleon is always right.”
