We do have a few Conservatives in the House. Our problem in the House Leadership or LACK of leadership.
would you please put that out to everyone so the hand wringing, “AMERICA IS DONE” masses will STFU!
I wonder if that’s what Valerie Jarrett meant when she said they have 2 justices ready to go. I thought she meant REPLACEMENT justices ready to install, but maybe she meant 2 justices they can easily blackmail. Roberts and Scalia.
The fact that these questions even exist should tell Congress that the entire federal government - all 3 branches - has lost any credibility and the trust of the people unless we find a way to rein in the political/blackmail use of our supposed “national security” infrastructure.
Alrighty then, polling places will be at Border patrol offices. You can vote, but if you are here illegally, you are to be deported immediately.
"The NVRA permits a State to request the EAC to include state specific instructions on the Federal Form, see 42 U. S. C. §1973gg7(a)(2), and a State may challenge the EACs rejection of that request(or failure to act on it) in a suit under the Administrative Procedure Act. That alternative means of enforcing its constitutional power to determine voting qualifications remains open to Arizona here. Should the EAC reject or decline to act on a renewed request, Arizona would have the opportunity to establish in a reviewing court that a mere oath will not suffice to effectuate its citizenship requirement and that the EAC is therefore under a nondiscretionary duty to include Arizonas concrete-evidence requirement on the Federal Form. Pp. 1317.
677 F. 3d 383, affirmed.
SCALIA, J., delivered the opinion of the Court, in which ROBERTS, C. J., and GINSBURG, BREYER, SOTOMAYOR, and KAGAN, JJ., joined, and in which KENNEDY, J., joined in part. KENNEDY, J., filed an opinion concurring in part and concurring in the judgment. THOMAS, J., and ALITO, J., filed dissenting opinions."
Basically, Arizona must submit a request for Arizona-specific instructions. Then the EAC rejects/fails to act, Arizona can sue the EAC in federal court. Looks like the Supreme Court is inviting the suit so it can rule in Arizona's favor.
Man! The fix is in, isn’t it.
Very sadly, you are right. This is what’s first and foremost on the minds of many of the sheeple.
He was part of the decision, 2009 I believe it was, that said CA can’t make laws again minors buying violent video games. Brown vs. EMA, if memory serves.
Which was anti-republican self-government, even in the protection of our children and communities.
He quite often thinks the law is whatever his caprice says it is.
Time for the states to say GFY
Richard Nixon's head: "I happen to know a place where the Constitution doesn't mean squat!"
So, thank the asshats that passed the Motor Voter Act.
[[I think this is a signal from at a minimum Scalia that once the NVRA process is followed, there will be a sympathetic SCOTUS majority]]
IF that were the case, why hasn’t this come before the surpeme court before now? There’s been an obvious lack of cocnern regardign illegal voting o nthe federal level for a long time now, and liek antoher person said, since our supreme court hadn’t ruled on this serious issue previously, it woudld then be up to the states to try to weed out the illegal votes, while contestign an election, whicvh would be narly impossible, and woudl drag on for ever, costign tons of money- so the federal gove3nrment knows states are unlikely to do this and so they don’t really give a crap- niehter did the surpeme court apparently-
It ‘looks like’ they are indicating they ‘would be’ sympathetic, but sicne htis is such a serious issue, why hasn’t it been addressed before now if they are sympathetic? We’re talkign abotu electiosn beign stolen because of illegal voting o na masive scale-
At any rate, EVEN IF they do hear a future case, I do not trust the traitor John Roberts any logner-
Next the Dems will come up with a plan that all elections be held Mon-Fri, between hours of 8am-5pm.... so that most working people can’t vote!

LMAO..., misted the T in stinking.
What is the point of all this caring about elections or politics, when they are a lawless bunch who ignore the Constitution, the People, and common sense? Sometimes I just wonder what the point is? They are going to do what they want, which is NWO, for lack of a better word.
[[Boehner needs to introduce a bill in the House which repeals or revises the 1993 National Voter Registration Act. Likelihood of that? Nill.]]
He’s too busy weeping with the Sandy Hook parents and hteir anti-gun crusade to take time to do so
