    Bob Anderson writes for the Federalist about a final verdict in the legal battles surrounding the 2020 presidential election.

  • On Monday, without comment, the Supreme Court ended the last of the 2020 election cases, rejecting Trump v. Wisconsin Election Commission in a one-line order. It was a quiet ending to a tumultuous election season, but like a football game with a contentious call at the end, the debate over who really won will likely go on much longer.
  • The courts have always served as a pressure-relief valve on our internal disagreements. From the battle with an unscrupulous car dealer to a nasty divorce that requires discernment over how to split everything from the antique Corvette to the kids, wise judges can help to bring peace and healing. Surely, for a nation reeling after a tempestuous presidential election filled with strange occurrences, the courts were needed to bring us together.
  • We needed the steady hand of impartial jurists. Most of all, the losing side needed to know that a fair shake was given, and that justice prevailed, even if it wasn't the outcome they wanted. That did not happen after Nov. 3. Despite a stack of cases that worked their way through the legal system, we remain bitterly divided.
  • A Rasmussen survey last month found that 61 percent of Republicans say Joe Biden did not win the election fairly. That number hasn't changed much since early January, when 69 percent of GOP voters voiced the same concern. That 34 percent of all voters and 36 percent of independents agree with them is a strong signal that something went terribly amiss in the maelstrom of election cases.
  • The election is over. There has been an inauguration. So why did ABC's George Stephanopoulos feel the need to berate a U.S. senator and his audience with the demand, "Can't you just say the words: This election was not stolen?" ...
  • ... Perhaps, the answer lies in the details of those cases, as much in how they were adjudicated as in the final rulings.

ABC's George Stephanopoulos has best been described as a "Democrat agent with a press pass" (I wish I had thought up those true remarks).

The author, Bob Anderson, was most kind to the courts when he stated, "Perhaps, the answer lies in the details of those cases, as much in how they were adjudicated as in the final rulings," since we now know that these details were not discussed, and since we know that politics, details (discussed or not), and most lawyers don't mix too well.

What we did learn, however, from the 2020 General Election is that once the bad deeds had been done by the vast horde of Democratic Socialist activist that you can not count on The Courts to do what is right, not if the Democratic Socialist are the ones proved cheating, as they were.

They certainly was well proved in this last election cycle, and the Judiciary has a foul stain that they will not soon be rid of.
