    This is kind of funny coming from a Fascist like you. What would you know about free speech and the Constitution? Thomas dances circles around you intellectually. You couldn't argue with a gnat.

    “The Constitution gives to each state legislature authority to determine the ‘Manner’ of federal elections,” began Thomas. “Yet both before and after the 2020 election, nonlegislative officials in various States took it upon themselves to set the rules instead. As a result, we received an unusually high number of petitions and emergency applications contesting those changes. The petitions here present a clear example.”

    “The Pennsylvania Legislature established an unambiguous deadline for receiving mail-in ballots: 8 p.m. on election day. Dissatisfied, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court extended that deadline by three days,” Thomas explained, referring to one of the rejected cases. “These cases provide us with an ideal opportunity to address just what authority nonlegislative officials have to set election rules, and to do so well before the next election cycle. The refusal to do so is inexplicable.”

    “For more than a century, this Court has recognized that the Constitution operates as a limitation upon the State in respect of any attempt to circumscribe the legislative power to regulate federal elections,” he continued, quoting Supreme Court precedent. “Because the Federal Constitution, not state constitutions, gives state legislatures authority to regulate federal elections, petitioners presented a strong argument that the Pennsylvania Supreme Court’s decision violated the Constitution by overriding the clearly expressed intent of the legislature.”

    “But elections enable self-governance only when they include processes that give citizens (including the losing candidates and their supporters) confidence in the fairness of the election,” Thomas added, quoting a recent Supreme Court case that held, “Confidence in the integrity of our electoral processes is essential to the functioning of our participatory democracy.”

    “Unclear rules threaten to undermine this system. They sow confusion and ultimately dampen confidence in the integrity and fairness of elections,” he explained. “To prevent confusion, we have thus repeatedly — although not as consistently as we should — blocked rule changes made by courts close to an election.”

    You mean Clarence actually paid attention to a case, and I always thought he just did what his wife instructed him to do, my bad

    Did he finally ask a question? or has he already hit his three a year?

    The unconstitutional actions of activist jurists:

    In Wisconsin, a federal judge extended the deadline for receiving absentee ballots during the primary election cycle by a period of six days. No one objected to that extension in the early days of state “lockdown” orders to address the outbreak of the COVID 19 virus. But, five days before the scheduled election, the same judge clarified the order to state that ballots postmarked on or before the extended day for receipt of ballots could be counted even though that violated Wisconsin election law which required that they be postmarked no later than Election Day, and no party in the case had asked for the Court to grant the additional relief.

    U.S. District Judge Abdul K. Kallon issued the ruling today in favor of people and organizations who sued … election officials over …. ban on curbside voting, the requirement that absentee ballots be signed by a notary or two witnesses, and the requirement for a photo ID with absentee ballot applications.

    U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit. By a 12–3 vote, the 4th Circuit allowed North Carolina to accept mail-in ballots that arrive up to nine days after Nov. 3.

    In Pennsylvania, Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin, Democrat activists dressed in black robes have fundamentally rewritten state election laws. Among their various revisions to these crucial laws:

    Mail-in ballots can be received up to seven (7) days after the election and still be counted
    These ballots can be missing postmarks and still be counted
    The signature on the ballot doesn’t even have to match with that of the registered voter
    And, as a bonus, they have banned the Green Party from the ballot to prevent erosion of the Biden vote

    Nothing says irony better than a triggered, low IQ, unaccomplished, whiny, leftist loon on a small forum insulting a man who has more intelligence in his little toe.

    Why doesn't Clarence Thomas tap dance into retirement where we can stop thinking about him, just like Uncle Ben and Aunt Jemima?

    He's humiliated our hard working African American brothers and sisters with his Uncle Tomfoolery more than enough already.

    There's no logic to this word salad. So tell us, what does the Constitution say about election laws? Find the part that says Jurists can change laws. lam:
