The Supreme Court Just Made A HUGE Move To Protect Elections…


The Supreme Court will soon hear a case with the potential to upend both election administration and the basic principles of how American democracy works. Its ruling will be handed down less than a year before primaries begin in the 2024 election, possibly creating a massive disruption to voting just before a contentious contest.

The case, Moore v. Harper, involves state legislative power over congressional redistricting. The petitioners bringing the case posit that Article I, Section 4 of the Constitution,1 commonly referred to as the Elections Clause, endows state legislatures with exclusive power to decide how federal elections are administered within their states.

The case, which is one of the most closely watched disputes of the current term, could upend how states craft and interpret their election laws. Of course, critics of the independent state legislature theory have warned that it could have dire consequences for the integrity of American democracy.

More details of this report from Breitbart:

The U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday agreed to hear a case next term to potentially bolster the elections power of state legislatures.

The high court announced it would take up the case, known as Moore vs. Harper, brought by North Carolina’s Republican state House speaker who has challenged the state Supreme Court’s decision to dismiss the legislature’s congressional maps that would have given the party an advantage through partisan gerrymandering.

The North Carolina Supreme Court in February ruled that the legislative maps, which gave Republicans as many as 11 safe districts compared to just three for Democrats, violated the state’s constitution in a 4-3 decision.

In March, the U.S. high court turned back efforts by Republicans to nullify new congressional maps approved by state court for this year’s midterm elections.

According to The Beltway Report, the left is in a panic because they were able to pull off a coup in 2020 by using activist judges and corrupt state officials such as Brad Raffensperger in Georgia and Mark Brnovich in Arizona to circumvent state laws.

In Georgia, the corrupt Raffensperger signed an agreement with Hillary Clinton lawyer, Marc Elias to use drop boxes in the state, even though the law does not make provisions for them and they were not approved by the legislature.

The Pa. Supreme Court ruled that incomplete ballots could be counted and that ballots could be accepted up to three days after the election even though it violated the law.

In fact, the far-left Guardian reported:

The case, Moore v Harper, involves a dispute over North Carolina’s congressional districts. At the heart of the case is what has come to be known as the independent state legislature theory (ISL) – the idea that state legislatures cannot be checked by state supreme courts when it comes to setting rules for federal elections, even if the legislature’s actions violate the state’s constitution. It’s an idea that three justices – William Rehnquist, Clarence Thomas and Antonin Scalia – mused about in Bush v Gore, but has gained little traction since. The decision to hear the case immediately raised serious alarm from experts, who say the idea is anti-democratic and is antithetical to federalism and the separation of powers at the heart of American government.
