    Justice Kavanaugh KNOWS how this works. He was on a team in Florida that argued for the inclusion of ballots received 10+ days after election day, and pressed counties to change their totals over THANKSGIVING weekend. He knows.

    Ryan Lizza

    These dueling opinions from Kavanaugh and Kagan on mail-in ballots may be the most important story of the day:

    Kavanaugh: late ballots could “flip the results of an election”

    Kagan: “there are no results to ‘flip’ until all valid votes are counted”

    Fun fact: Supreme Court Justices Kavanaugh, Barrett, and Roberts all worked on legal issues for the Bush campaign during the 2000 Florida recount when a core argument from Bush (and eventually Gore, via Joe Lieberman) was that late arriving military ballots should be counted.

    Still stuck on this Kavanaugh concurrence claiming that states announce the winner on election night. They don’t. News organizations project based on the trajectory of incoming results. And furthermore, it’s not uncommon for close races and states to be undeclared for days.
    Eric Bradner
    This portion of Kavanaugh's concurrence in the Wisconsin case is objectively just ridiculous. First screenshot is dishonest about why ballots might arrive late and whose fault it is; second one is basically just a long version of Trump's tweets delegitimizing mail-in voting.

    Lou Roper
    Replying to @abbydphillip and @igallupd
    The 'announcement of winners' on election night has no legal effect anyway. Each state's secretary certifies the election results in accordance with its election laws.

    Do conservative women go to a class to master that adoring look they use?

    Justice Thomas’ wife boosts unsupported claims against Biden

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas is using her Facebook page to amplify unsubstantiated claims of corruption by Joe Biden.

    Ginni Thomas, a longtime conservative activist, asked her more than 10,000 followers Monday to consider sharing a link focused on alleged corruption by the Democratic nominee for president and his son, Hunter, as well as claims that social media companies are censoring reports about the Bidens.

    Other spouses of justices also have their own professional identities, but Thomas is the only one whose work involves partisan politics that sometimes butts up against her husband’s job. Clarence Thomas is the longest-serving current justice, having joined the court in 1991, and he administered the oath at the swearing in of new Justice Amy Coney Barrett on Monday evening. Barrett’s confirmation following a rushed process to install her on the court before the election gives conservatives a 6-3 court majority.

    Justice Thomas has never considered his wife’s political activism disqualifying. He has not stepped aside from any case involving Trump or current disputes over absentee-ballot extensions and other voting issues. A court spokeswoman did not respond to requests for Thomas to comment on this story.

    Both Thomases were at the White House Monday for the ceremony. During the ceremony, Ginni Thomas sat, unmasked, next to Jesse Barrett, the new justice’s husband.

    She wrote on Facebook Tuesday that she was “so excited” to be at Barrett’s swearing in. “Clarence said as we left, I wish your Mom was still alive, which drew my tears, as she would be living each minute and emotion of this historic day...a day President Trump made possible!” Thomas wrote.

    The couple also attended a private ceremony at the court Tuesday, where all the attendees wore masks, according to court spokeswoman Kathy Arberg.

    Ginni Thomas is an avid backer of President Donald Trump and an influential conservative activist who posts pictures of Trump supporters campaigning in Virginia. She also was a delegate to the Republican convention in Charlotte, North Carolina, this summer.

    In a photo she posted in February, Thomas is seated next to Trump at a White House meeting in 2019. Other conservative leaders have called her “crucially important” and “an indispensable leader of the conservative movement. More than a dozen photos she posted online show her husband with Trump or Vice President Mike Pence.

    Ginni Thomas regularly shares conspiracy-minded memes.

    Last week, she reposted a video that features Trump personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani and the headline, “The Biden Crime Family: How They Made Millions.”

    Again asking people to share the link, Thomas wrote, “The mainstream media does not want people to know the facts of what this video reveal.”

    On Oct. 14, she pointed followers to an attack on philanthropist George Soros. “Who is really running the Democrat Party? The Soros family,” the shared link says, featuring photos of Soros relations with Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris, Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Hillary Clinton.

    On Oct. 12, she linked to a video by conservative commentator Dan Bongino asserting that Biden is suffering from dementia.

    Three times in October, she wrote about what Trump and his supporters call Obamagate, an unsupported claim that former President Barack Obama broke the law by spying on Trump and his associates during the transition between their administrations.

    On Oct. 10, she wrote, “More citizens should KNOW about the biggest scandal and the evidence now piling up! #ObamaGate.”

    Two of her favorites targets are “the left” and “the media.” On Oct. 17, she posted a photo of a Black man identified as a conservative who was protesting outside Twitter headquarters in San Francisco. The photo shows the man with a bloodied mouth and teeth missing. She wrote, “Why is the left violent and why don’t Democrat’s condemn this?”

    A few hours earlier, Thomas complained about apparent collusion between the media and the Biden campaign to shield the candidate from tough questions. “Media + Biden/Harris team = PROPAGANDA and Corruption. #WalkAwayFromDemocrats and the Mainstream Media! Find new news sources!” she wrote.

    Today in Warm Springs, Biden spoke about the “charlatans, the conman, the phony populist who likes to play on our fears, appeal to our worst appetites, to pick at the oldest scabs we have for their own political gain.” Quote:

    What you need to know
    - Joe Biden made remarks at a campaign event in Warm Springs, Georgia, on Tuesday
    - His remarks quoted Pope Francis' most recent encyclical, which addressed modern politics and populism
    - An account from the Trump campaign clipped Joe Biden quoting the Pope in a misleading way, according to journalists and fact-checkers

    This isn't the religion thread but it should be mentioned here that the people behind putting The Handmaiden on the SC are working very hard to get rid of Pope Francis.

    The majority of Cardinal electors have been promoted by Pope Francis (83), unlikely that the next Pope will be ultra conservative.

    That is true but the conservatve Cardinal of my Archdiocese has alread formed a group to make sure the next Pope isn't someone like Francis or as many of the South American religious I follow on Twitter call him Bergoglio.
