December 12, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) — Let’s start by stating what the Supreme Court’s decision not to hear the Texas case does not mean: It does not mean that the 2020 presidential election is over. Those who tried to steal the election have not won. President Trump still has a pathway to victory.
The U.S. Supreme Court set aside the Texas case not on its merits, but on the grounds that Texas did not have “standing” to sue other states for violating their own election laws. Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton had assembled a massive amount of evidence showing the “rampant lawlessness” of the elections that were held in Pennsylvania, Georgia, Wisconsin, and Michigan. The Supremes refused to review it.
Rudy Giuliani, President Trump’s personal attorney, said Friday on Newsmax TV’s “Stinchfield” that President Trump will continue to fight. Giuliani said, “The case wasn’t rejected on the merits, the case was rejected on standing. So the answer to that is to bring the case now to the district court by the president, by some of the electors, alleging some of the same facts where there would be standing and therefore get a hearing.”
“Basically, the courts are saying they want to stay out of this and they don’t want to give us a hearing; they don’t want the American people to hear these facts,” Giuliani continued. “I think that’s a terrible, terrible mistake. These facts will remain an open sore in our history unless they get resolved. They need to be heard, they need to be aired, and somebody needs to make a decision on whether they’re true or false. Some court’s going to have to have the courage to make that decision.”
To the disappointment of many, that court was not SCOTUS, which said in rejecting the suit: “The State of Texas’s motion for leave to file a bill of complaint is denied for lack of standing under Article III of the Constitution. Texas has not demonstrated a judicially cognizable interest in the manner in which another State conducts its elections. All other pending motions are dismissed as moot.”
Justices Alito and Thomas were the only two Supremes who voted to hear the case, while Trump appointees Gorsuch, Barrett and Kavanaugh simply said no with the other seven.
In response, President Trump said this morning, “The Supreme Court had ZERO interest in the merits of the greatest voter fraud ever perpetrated on the United States of America. All they were interested in is ‘standing’, which makes it very difficult for the President to present a case on the merits. 75,000,000 votes!”
I think everyone can understand the President’s frustration here. Trump attorney Jenna Ellis pointed out that SCOTUS is not supposed to decline to hear a case of original jurisdiction — when one state sues another — and that claiming that states don’t have standing to do just that is “a ridiculous political posture.”
And what on earth does SCOTUS mean by not “judicially cognizable”? Is it not “self-evident” — to borrow a term from the Declaration of Independence — that everyone, not just in Texas but in the entire United States of America, is harmed by allowing a fraudulent election to stand? Any American citizen should be able to file suit in federal court against those states that allowed ballot-stuffing and electronic voter fraud to disenfranchise the rest of us. After all, we all have to live with the results.
As far as where the legal team will go from here, Giuliani said, “The president’s reaction is to look at other options. I mean, … originally, we thought about this as possibly four or five separate cases. So that is the option we are going to have to go to. There’s nothing that prevents us from filing these cases immediately in the district court in which the president, of course, would have standing, some of the electors would have standing in that their constitutional rights have been violated. … We’re not finished. Believe me.”
PETITION UPDATE (1/15/2021) -
The events of the past month, and especially the past 10 days, have shaken the faith Americans have in their elected and appoint officials.
We continue to call for investigations to be made into allegations of election fraud. Texas is in the process of prosecuting one political operative for illegal ballot harvesting, and multiple state legislatures have called for investigations, too.
However, the judiciary has severely let down the American electorate.
As we have said all along, the integrity of the election is much bigger than President Trump. Election integrity is at the heart of republican democracy, and if we don't have it, we no longer have a functioning republic.
Therefore, we continue to seek the truth for the election outcome. Perhaps that will only be known in the future when state or federal commissions are established to investigate the instances of election fraud which were witnessed and sworn to, by thousands of Americans of all political persuasions.
In the meantime, you may still sign this petition. Thank you!
PETITION UPDATE (12/10/20) -
On Wednesday, President Trump tweeted: "We will be INTERVENING in the Texas (plus many other states) case. This is the big one. Our Country needs a victory!"
He is referring to the lawsuit which the state of Texas has filed against Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Georgia in the Supreme Court over changes those states made to their election rules, claiming they violated the U.S. Constitution in the process.
Here is the central part of the argument: if Texas were to allow possible voter fraud to go unchecked in Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Georgia, it would be akin to committing fraud upon the people of Texas, who cast their ballots within the framework of the law.
Indeed, this would apply equally to all citizens who voted within the framework of the law across the United States!
President Trump also tweeted that this case is, "very strong...ALL CRITERIA MET."
Please continue to SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition, now.
PETITION UPDATE (12/7/20) - Since this petition was launched, President Trump's legal team, as well as other concerned citizens, have discovered what appears to be irrefutable evidence of voter fraud in several of the key battleground states, and have initiated legal challenges in six states.
While the situation continues to evolve, this remains a hugely important petition which we encourage you to SIGN and SHARE.
Below, please WATCH and READ about the mounting evidence of voter fraud and how the mainstream media seem determined to ignore even the most egregious instances of vote tampering. Then, please SIGN and SHARE this petition.
LifeSite supports President Trump with this petition because we believe he is trying to defend the Constitution, ensuring that electoral fraud does not taint the result of the 2020 general election.
But, since starting this petition, we have launched a separate petition related to the disputed election outcome, calling on the Department of Justice to 'do their job' and engage in meaningful investigations of the mounting evidence of voter fraud.
We believe that conducting forensic audits of ballots and voting machines, as well as issuing subpoenas to collect more evidence, would be a good start.
Thankfully, some of the state started to demand investigations independent of federal agencies. But we still believe that the DoJ needs to use its enormous fact-finding resources to help resolve allegations of election fraud.
Thank you for continuing to SIGN and SHARE all our election-related petitions.
Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition which calls on all Americans to Stand With President Trump as he uses every legitimate means to find out if voter fraud played any role in the election outcome.
Amid allegations of voter fraud, and at a time when the situation with COVID has been used by many of the states to facilitate the use of mail-in ballots on a massive scale, we need to be very careful in dismissing the possibility of voter fraud.
The fact is, the possibility of wide-spread fraud with mail-in ballots is significant.
But, this is not about Donald Trump or Joe Biden! This about whether or not the sanctity of the ballot box has been tampered with!
Please Stand With President Trump as he attempts to defend the integrity of this election, as well as well as the right to vote itself!
Indeed, this is so important, not so much because one election hangs in the balance, but because our democracy, itself, hangs in the balance.
Americans not only have a right to know, but should demand that every legitimate means be used to discover the truth about these elections!
Please SIGN this petition and Stand With President Trump to ensure that these elections were conducted freely and fairly!
While most all Americans believe in playing by the rules, we also know that some very devious, politically-motivated operatives have been trying to harm the Trump administration from before he even took the oath of office.
This fact should lead us to question how some allegations of voter fraud can be so easily dismissed by state election authorities.
We demand to know the truth, and, for the sake of our democracy, we demand that President Trump keep fighting to learn the truth.
Thank you for SIGNING and SHARING this petition today!

In addition to cases that will be filed by the Trump legal team, there are a number of other cases already filed on behalf of people from within those key swing states whose “standing” is not in question. They are claiming that their rights were violated by the failure of state officials to carry out a free and fair election according to the laws set out by that state’s own legislature.
One such set of lawsuits has been filed by the great Sidney Powell, who last night tweeted out: “Pay attention! We made emergency filings in the Supreme Court tonight for Georgia and Michigan. Will be filing Arizona and Wisconsin shortly. These cases raise constitutional issues and prove massive fraud. Our plaintiffs have standing. We the People will not allow rigged elections.”
Lin Wood and others also have lawsuits pending in state and federal courts. Today, for example, the Wisconsin Supreme Court has agreed to hear a case on whether laws enacted by the state legislature were followed.
Each and every one of these cases and hearings is an opportunity to bring to light more cases of voter fraud, many of which will be added to the ongoing lawsuits, and help to show that the election was stolen.
One point that the Texas lawsuit brought to light, for example, was the hyper-improbability of the “midnight express” ballots that flooded into Philadelphia, Atlanta, Detroit, and Milwaukee counting centers the night after the election. A statistical analysis included in the suit calculated that there was only a 1 in a quadrillion chance — that means, in layman’s terms, not a snowball’s chance in hell — that this happened without massive fraud.
The other thing the Texas lawsuit did was force politicians at all levels of government, and the states themselves, to declare themselves. Much like the line in the sand that Colonel Travis drew in the courtyard of the Alamo, it divided those who were willing to fight for the survival of our constitutional republic from those who wanted to flee.
Now we know who really represents the 75 million plus citizens of the United States who voted for President Trump. They are the 126 members of Congress who signed a letter in support of Texas, along with the 17 states which did the same.
The battle lines have been formed.
As for Trump himself, he says he says that he will carry on. “The Supreme Court let us down! No Wisdom, No Courage! So, you’re the President of the United States, and you just went through an election where you got more votes than any sitting President in history, by far — and you purportedly lost … A Rigged Election, fight on!”
And then there’s this, from this morning: “WE HAVE JUST BEGUN TO FIGHT!”
His words echo those of Revolutionary War hero John Paul Jones who, when asked to surrender, replied: “I have not yet begun to fight!”
It’s not over until it’s over.
