The image above is very appropriate, the Supreme Court sits empty, vacant, inert, indeed impotent. In news breaking this hour: The SCOTUS has declined to fast-track a multitude of pending election-related petitions. President Trump and others seeking relief and investigation into electoral irregularities and serious allegations of fraud will go unanswered. It is the last word in a long line of shocking betrayals by our highest court.
The Supreme Court has fully abandoned its constitutional mandate today, as after the inauguration these cases will most likely be declared “moot” and no action will ever be taken.
CBS News Reports,
“The court declined to expedite consideration of the lawsuits brought by Mr. Trump and GOP allies, including lawyers Lin Wood and Sidney Powell, that targeted the election results from battleground states he lost: Arizona, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Georgia. There were no noted dissents.
In refusing to speed up review of the legal battles, the cases will effectively be moot by the time the justices consider them during its regular schedule. Mr. Biden will be sworn in January 20.”
“There were no noted dissents.” That sentence in the court’s orders of the day is perhaps the most chilling of all. The “Conservative” Justices; Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh & Amy Coney Barrett have sat idly by as the Constitution they swore to uphold has been usurped and perverted. No comment is given, no justification, no opinion to answer 75 million Americans who are calling out desperately to be heard before they are trampled beneath the jackboot of the progressive-socialist husk that once was the Democratic party. Only one simple word that has been echoed again and again since November 3rd “denied”. There will be no hearing, no arguments, no investigation, no testimonies or evidence given.
NEW this morning: the Supreme Court denies expedited hearings in almost 10 cases challenging election results. That's tantamount to outright denial, since they will probably be moot on Jan. 20. #SCOTUS pic.twitter.com/LYhm61PEl2

It is the final, ultimate insult to 75 million people who deeply believe with certainty that their vote, their voice, their only weapon with which to wage peace, was unjustly stolen. History will likely remember this moment as one of the most defining in our history: When approximately half of the electorate was not told “no”, not refuted or proven wrong, but simply…ignored.
SCOTUS Building Fortified
As riot-fences and barricades are erected around the SCOTUS Building this morning, it would seem the Justices may have some notion as to what effect this ruling may have on an already explosive divide in the American people. After all, they were only down the mall from Congress. As January 20th approaches and rumors persist of thousands of patriots descending upon the capital, we can only wait and hope for a peaceful conclusion that brings this injustice to light.
