December 14, 2020 (FRC Action) — For the tens of thousands of people who made the trip to the National Mall this weekend, there was some solace in the crowds. They came, Ohio's Melissa Regan said, to fight for their freedom. “I'm a mom and a proud American,” New York's Lisa Morin told a photographer on an unusually warm December day. “And I'm really scared about what's happening in this country.” It's not just about exposing the truth of the election, she insisted. It's about exposing the truth, period.
Like so many of the president's supporters, they could only shake their head in frustration at the latest setback to that truth. Hours earlier, seven justices of the U.S. Supreme Court announced they would not hear the 18-state lawsuit against Georgia, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Michigan for their gross violation of election law. In a brief, three-sentence explanation, the justices claimed that the attorneys general lacked the standing to sue. “Texas has not demonstrated a judicially cognizable interest in the manner in which another state conducts its elections.” Although Justices Samuel Alito and Clarence Thomas didn't necessarily disagree, they did make a point of releasing a separate statement saying they would have at least heard the case.
The justices blamed standing, Margot Cleveland wrote, “'a judicially cognizable interest.' But how can the state of Texas not have a judicially cognizable interest in her sister states living up to the compact they entered when they entered the Union?” Part of the lawsuit might have been a stretch, she agreed, but “by failing to mention Texas's constitutional claims, and by not providing any reasoning for its decision — omissions likely needed for the court to maintain its near-unanimous agreement — the Supreme Court created the appearance that it does not care about constitutional violations.” Let's hope, she went on, that their decision was rooted in the Constitution and not their concern about meddling in the election.
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!

For now, the media is having a field day with the 126 House Republicans who urged the Supreme Court to take the case. Fellow Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) said she was “disgusted” that the members weighed in, even though they had a very real stake in ensuring their states' votes counted. If Georgia, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Michigan violated their election laws, then guess what! They're breaching the entire contract on which our country is based. All the states, a brief from Citizens United had argued, “are interdependent. Our nation's operational principle is E Pluribus Unum. Each state has a duty to other states to abide by this…” This isn't an infringement on other states' sovereignty, the group insisted. “Each state depends on other states to adhere to minimum constitutional standards in areas where their sovereignty is ceded to the union. And if those standards are not met, then the responsibility to enforce those standards falls to this Court.”
Not only did these attorneys general have a right to file this lawsuit, under the contract of the Constitution, they had an obligation to file this lawsuit. Liberals, of course, who've never wanted to be governed by anything but their own radical agenda, don't care what our guiding document says. In fact, they're so incensed that any Republican would exhaust these legal options that they've floated the idea of punishing them in the new Congress! Rep. Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-N.J.), in a letter to Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) argues that these patriots are “traitors” “who would seek to destroy the Union.” These are, in his words, “unbecoming acts that reflect poorly on our chamber.” House leaders, he insists, cannot agree to seat them.
What House Republicans did may be a fireable offense in the eyes of lawless Democrats, but that's what makes it so commendable. Standing up for the rule of law takes courage in a ruthless environment like this one. And when the media and liberal activists and even some Republicans are telling you to just “let it go,” (and by “it” they mean our constitutional process), it was all the more heroic that these conservatives stepped in and stood up for integrity.
At the end of the day, Rep. Mike Johnson (R-La.) reminded everyone, “Duty is ours, results are God's.” Doug Masriano (R), a Pennsylvania state senator who hosted the first public hearing on election integrity he's heard from “thousands of people” across the state about fraud at every level. These are real problems in our system, he insisted. That's why he's not quitting — and neither, Masriano said, should Republicans. “We're on the side of righteousness — and we need to fight forward politically [to clean up the process], not just roll over.” Courage is rising, he said. “And it's not too late. It's never too late.”
