Conservative commentator Mark Levin said Wednesday that the 2020 presidential election unveiled the “complete collapse” of the courts on state officials taking unconstitutional actions.
“This election has exposed the complete collapse of the judiciary as a check on unconstitutional acts by state officials eviscerating legislative authority under our federal constitution (Art. II, Sec. 1, Cl. 2),” he said.
Levin previously blasted the Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar for violating this constitutional provision by counting votes that arrived following Election Day without valid postmarks.
The author continued Wednesday by specifically branding the Supreme Court as partisan after its dismissal of a case contesting the results of the election in battleground states.
The election “has also exposed the Supreme Court as a highly political, result-oriented, LIBERAL body that grants standing when it wants to rule on a case (Mass v. EPA) and denies standing when it wants to duck a case (Texas v. PA, et al). That Court intervenes relentlessly in state election processes, almost exclusively in support of leftwing activists and Democrat organizations that seek to weaken election security and fraud prevent,” he said.
The Court and inferior federal and state courts have earned the contempt of tens of millions of Americans….In effect, they have served as the Praetorian Guard for the planned, elaborate, and unlawful acts of the Democrat Party….When the Court actually upholds the Constitution it is, more often than not, the EXCEPTION to the rule, which for the Court is activism with few limits.
