The apparent Democrat coup plans are not looking good.
News Analytics kicked off our reporting with General Mark Milley clarifying that no, it is not the job of the military to decide an election dispute. So whose job is it?
The Supreme Court.
We completely stand by our insistence that partisan politics has no place on the Supreme Court. However, we also acknowledge reality, and currently the Supreme Court is nothing but partisan.
The make up of the Supreme Court has been 5 conservative and 4 democratic justices. With Ginsburg on the bench, a dispute could have played out in favor of democrats due to Justice Roberts unfavorable relationship with Trump. It would have only taken a single swayed vote to topple the dispute in Biden’s favor. In light of the current situation, however, with only 8 justices on the bench it would take Roberts plus 2 dissenting conservative judges to sway the decision. It is not an impossible scenario, but it isn’t likely, either.
It is just as unlikely that a new justice will be confirmed in time to take part in the dispute. Reports indicate that both Trump and McConnell plan to move forward with the process, but given the nature of these confirmations I would be surprised to see it completed prior to November 3.
So despite the ramped up rhetoric of delaying election results and removing Trump from the White House, it looks like only one election dispute could work out in favor of the Democrats: Joe Biden winning the electoral college on election night. Otherwise, the democrat coup plans are sure to blow up in their face.
So round up the troops, or have a really good plan for your mail in ballots. If campaign turnout is any indication, it is going to be another sweep for Trump come November.
