Justice Alito Orders Pennsylvania to segregate and secure “ballots received by mail after 8:00 p.m. on November 3”

Justice Alito Orders Pennsylvania to segregate and secure “ballots received by mail after 8:00 p.m. on November 3”

“Until today, this Court was not informed that the guidance” issued by PA Secretary of State to segregate and secure such ballots may not being followed by county Boards of Election. -- Public Domain

The Republican Party of Pennsylvania sought in emergency injunction from the U.S. Supreme Court requiring the Secretary of State and County Boards of Election to segregate and secure ballots received after the statutory deadline:

In short, an order from the Court is badly needed. But given some county boards’ refusal to confirm that they are segregating ballots and the Secretary’s changing guidance, an order requiring segregation of ballots may not suffice to preserve RPP’s appellate rights. RPP therefore now asks the Court for an order directing Respondents Secretary of State Boockvar and the county boards of elections, pending certiorari review or further order of the Court, to log, to segregate, and otherwise to take no further action related to any mail-in or civilian absentee ballots received after the General Assembly’s received-by deadline.

Justice Samuel Alito just issued an administrative injunction, pending consideration by the full court:

All county boards of election are hereby ordered, pending further order of the Court, to comply with the following guidance provided by the Secretary of the Commonwealth on October 28 and November 1, namely, (1) that all ballots received by mail after 8:00 p.m. on November 3 be segregated and kept “in a secure, safe and sealed container separate from other voted ballots,” and (2) that all such ballots, if counted, be counted separately.

The attorneys for Pennsylvania had represented, in an earlier litigation that ended up in a 4-4 deadlock twice, that this procedure would be used, but apparently the Supreme Court was just informed that was not the case. Alito continued:

Until today, this Court was not informed that the guidance issued on October 28, which had an important bearing on the question whether to order special treatment of the ballots in question, had been modified. The application received today also informs the Court that neither the applicant nor the Secretary has been able to verify that all boards are complying with the Secretary’s guidance, which, it is alleged, is not legally binding on them.

I am immediately referring this application to the Conference and direct that any response be filed as soon as possible but in any event no later than 2 p.m. tomorrow, November 7, 2020.

It’s unclear that forcing PA to comply with its own statutes on late ballots would make a difference, but it might make some difference depending how the on-time portion ends up.

Added: Here is the Petition for Writ of Certiorari pursuant to which the Application was made. Unfortunately, this case before SCOTUS is too narrow and doesn’t contest failure to verify and match signatures, only addresses late arriving ballots. I believe the lower court litigation included signatures, so maybe it’s preserved (but since they didn’t track non-matching ballots, hard to see what the remedy would be).


Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.


By noon tomorrow, an intern will have “completely misunderstood” their instructions and the late ballots will be comingled with timely ballots. Unexpectedly, an anonymous donor will pay off the intern’s family mortgage by Thanksgiving.

    That is what Brenda Snipes was famous for in Forida with her fabricated votes. Unfortunately for PA, they announced how many were outstanding so all can be wiped out by a number.

      Guess the PA AG forgot to click “Send” on those instructions.

      “2006, George Soros Started Spending Millions to Get Hardline Leftwingers Elected as Secretary of State in Key States

      Are people allowed to talk about this on social media — or Fox News — or is this too to be censored?

      The “Secretary of State Project” was an American non-profit, progressive 527 political action committee focused on electing reform-minded progressive Secretaries of State in battleground states, who typically oversee the election process. The Project was funded by George Soros and members of the Democracy Alliance.

      In 2008, Democrat House Organ Politico ran a story about the Obama campaign, calling the Secretaries of State the “Democrat firewall.”

      In anticipation of a photo-finish presidential election, Democrats have built an administrative firewall designed to protect their electoral interests in five of the most important battleground states.
      The bulwark consists of control of secretary of state offices in five key states — Iowa, Minnesota, Nevada, New Mexico and Ohio — where the difference between victory and defeat in the 2004 presidential election was no more than 120,000 votes in any one of them.

      With a Democrat now in charge of the offices, which oversee and administer their state’s elections, the party is better positioned than in the previous elections to advance traditional Democratic interests–�such as increasing voter registration and boosting turnout — rather than Republican priorities such as stamping out voter fraud.

      Perhaps more important, in those five states Democrats are now in a more advantageous position when it comes to the interpretation and administration of election law — a development that could benefit Barack Obama if any of those states are closely contested on Election Day.

      Members of the Democracy Alliance are required to contribute at least $200,000 a year to groups the Democracy Alliance vets and recommends. As of 2014, the Alliance had helped distribute approximately $500 million to liberal organizations since its founding in 2005. Members of the Democracy Alliance include billionaires George Soros and Tom Steyer. In 2017 and 2018 alone, Democracy Alliance Members spent $600 million on various liberal causes.

      The President of Democracy Alliance is Gene LeMarche, a long-time Soros friend…..

      Can you really get the bunny back in the hat in PA? What if everything was commingled and number of excludable votes and/or total D’s or R’s can’t be determined? If so, throw out the entire election and have a re-vote, or the legislature choosing electors.


      Terence G. Gain in reply to Concise. | November 7, 2020 at 2:37 pm

      Last week the fraudsters hadn’t stopped counting ballots and brought in new bags of ballots in the middle of the night.

      Milhouse in reply to Concise. | November 8, 2020 at 1:21 am

      Last week PA’s lawyers assured the court that it was going to be done so there was no need to order it. Now the court found out for the first time that this wasn’t true.

Demon-rats doing what they do best… Ignore, muddy and mixup…
All “honest” mistakes by secty of state CROOKVAR..

And they’re going to ignore his order and throw them in with the rest and dare them to do something about it.

TBH I see Roberts saying, ‘well gosh gee whiz guys I guess we can’t separate the votes so we’ll let it slide. But NEXT TIME we won’t allow it!’

Vote software in MI run by Avid Technology Inc, Richard C Blum holds 60% ownership; Husband of Dianne Feinstein

How’s my China IT experts does it take to steal an American Presidential election?

Bot they have been working on this a long long time, say 4 years!

    puhiawa in reply to gonzotx. | November 6, 2020 at 8:57 pm

    Easy to do. You pick an arbitrary number and every time those many ballots are run through it counts D+1. The number might be different for each county. The programming is child’s play.
    Particularly in MI which does not count ballots manually to ensure the tally is correct. We learned that in the last audit which found 50% of all tallies overstated the number of ballots in the storage box by up to 50%, with all excess votes going to Clinton in Detroit.
    And the turn out in Detroit this year was extremely low at the polls, but the numbers very high again.

      LibraryGryffon in reply to puhiawa. | November 6, 2020 at 10:20 pm

      And the program which does this includes code to delete itself at the close of polls.

      puhiawa in reply to puhiawa. | November 7, 2020 at 1:56 pm

      It is now being said the “glitch” used a fractional method to over count Biden ballots. This comes from a review of the MI results. So, for example, every GOP vote is tallied as 87/100 and every Democrat vote is tallied 113/100.

        iconotastic in reply to puhiawa. | November 7, 2020 at 2:17 pm

        If correct that is not a glitch but intentional malware. If Feinstein (D-Beijing) is involved it is certain who is behind this.

Since when do courts, in clear violation of the US Constitution get to make election law as the PA courts did? Any second year Con Law student knows that courts may only adjudicate conflicts and illegalities of the written elections law.
These Obama judges are as dangerous as the election theft.

    alaskabob in reply to puhiawa. | November 6, 2020 at 9:00 pm

    As with the Communist Party in the USSR….there are two sets of laws… those for the people and those of the Party… which may be completely opposite. The Rule of Law is… who rules makes the law. These are devout Democrats…top to bottom who demand winning.

    The same way they get to write abortion law.

    amatuerwrangler in reply to puhiawa. | November 7, 2020 at 12:32 am

    From the wording of the order, it appears the issue is to force the elections people to comply with the PA legislature’s laws that have been in place… specifically the cut-off date/time for accepting ballots. The actual paperwork is probably oriented toward equal protection, protecting the votes of voters who actually complied with the law.

    We won’t really know until the matter is heard for cert.

    MarkS in reply to puhiawa. | November 7, 2020 at 7:28 am

    In October, Mark Levin had a call in from a PA legislator and he explained in detail what she could do do circumvent the PA Supreme Court and nothing was done

Lets see, today is November 6, 2020, November 3, 2020 was three days ago. Given that all ballot counting is nearly complete, aren’t all ballots already intermixed?

    randian in reply to stablesort. | November 6, 2020 at 9:02 pm

    Exactly. The point is to make the fraud fait accompli. The only way to undo it is to redo the entire election with fresh ballots, which courts almost never order.

      Barry in reply to randian. | November 6, 2020 at 9:29 pm

      “The only way to undo it…”

      No, it’s not. They can simply take the vote at the moment the states stopped counting. That’s the remedy.

      Justice: Mr State Rep, why did your state stop counting at midnight?
      Mr State Rep: Uh, well, because, uh, uh.

        Don in reply to Barry. | November 7, 2020 at 1:34 am

        My thinking as well. You stopped counting? So, that means you had all the legal ballots and everything else gets tossed.

EXCLUSIVE: The Democrats’ Efforts to Hide Their Actions in Pennsylvania Will Likely Lead to President Trump Winning Pennsylvania

President Trump has the truth on his side. When his campaign demanded transparency in the election process, his team was denied access. This will come back to haunt the ever-corrupt Democrat Party, Big Tech and Big Media.

BREAKING: GoFundMe Shuts Down Fund for Data Analysts Investigating 2020 Voter Fraud After Raising Over $220,000 — NEW CAMPAIGN Launched on

Sidney Powell and Tom Fitton joined Lou Dobbs on Friday night to discuss the latest developments in the 2020 election.

Sidney told Lou’s audience about the Hammer and Scorecard software that was used to steal Trump votes in Michigan.

Gateway Pundit

As many of us suspected, PA went to CT to block this precisely because they KNEW that many of their counties had not followed the prior directive to segregate the ballots arriving after election day.

There was really no other reason for PA to oppose the motion by the.GOP.

So as I have said for months: the primary goal of these non legislative actors changing the election laws and procedures was to create chaos. The.resulting chaos would be used to cover the tracks of the underlying fraudulent balloting.

In essence these states, particularly PA, have created a binary choice for the courts. Very simplistic description is:

Let it stand by looking the other way and outrage r OR uphold the law by invalidating illegal ballots and if already mixed in some counties invalidate the ballots of those counties and outrage d.

My advice to SCOTUS, some either choice will infuriate half the country, from a practical standpoint SCOTUS should choose to rule in favor of the half that still supports our constitutional system. Coincidentally this choice is also the very clear legal and constitutional decision, IMO.

To do otherwise is to invite more shenanigans.

For what it’s worth, I think other members of the Court are just as PO as Alito that PA failed to follow through on their representations to SCOTUS that they would segregate the ballots. Lying to a court is always a bad idea.

Unlikely that the Supreme Court would take control of a States electoral process. Oops! I forgot 2000. Do you think that the fragile psyches of the Left could survive a second trauma of a “stolen” election?
Unfortunately I fear that they have planned for every scenario and this will be the revenge they have been hoping for since 2000.

    puhiawa in reply to CapeBuffalo. | November 7, 2020 at 1:27 am

    7 Judges determined they cheated in 2000 also.

    DuxRedux in reply to CapeBuffalo. | November 7, 2020 at 10:03 am

    Can’t imagine that the psyches of the RIGHT can handle the trauma of an overtly stolen election.

    This BS was telegraphed from Day One. And Joey Brainless boasted about assembling the greatest fraudulent organization on earth.



    I doubt that they actually planned to have a Ginsburgless court. That was to be their firewall against litigation.

This could be interesting as that weeds out the hundreds of thousands of Biden ballots the mysteriously turned up after 2am the next morning.

Further more, if they can’t comply or didn’t comply then that, I guess is more grounds for even more investigation in to voting irregularities in PA!

oldbiddiefortrump | November 7, 2020 at 6:25 am

I know its crazy, but we really need to have a new Election Day and start all over again. No mail in ballots unless you sign up of an absentee. There are secure boxes all over the cities and towns to drop off your ballot if you think (lol) COVID 19 is only at the polling places and you have to vote by mail.

    In these states I wouldn’t trust “secure” ballot boxes in known Republican districts, and I given these shenanigans I wouldn’t trust the Democrat districts not to throw out Republican votes as an alternative to manufacturing Democrat votes. Moreover, a new election allows them to fix the Congressional election problem they created by manufacturing votes that only had Biden ticked off and not the Democrat downticket.

Sam is a day late and a dollar short as those ballots have been combined already

freespeechfanatic | November 7, 2020 at 7:39 am

It seems to me Trump has two options at this point. One is low risk and low reward, the other extremely high risk but with commensurate reward. I also see the second option as a moral and civic imperative.

The first option appears to be his current choice: to pursue legal action to challenge and expose ballot counting chicanery through the courts. I see this as doomed. The deep state has Trump on the ropes and will not let up. The official narrative that Trump lost is nearly solidified. Any judges involved will be extorted, pressured or bought right up to the Supreme Court. If you do not believe the deep state is capable of this, we disagree on premises. At the Supreme Court, John Roberts is a lock to deny Trump any relief and at least one of Trump’s triumvirate of appointees is bound to break free if only to prove he/she is not a Trump pawn.

I see only frustration and failure on this course. And failure here obviously precludes the second option, which requires immediate execution.

The second option is to declare a national security threat and Constitutional crisis and invoke ultimate presidential powers through either the War Powers Act or Insurrection Act. This would entail immediate federal seizure and command of all disputed election materials and locations to implement both an audit and, as required, a recount. At the same time, seizure and shutdown of all network broadcast media and activation of the emergency broadcast system for 24 hour government or C-Span coverage of the recounts, with both democrat and republican officials to observe. (Obviously the democrats will refuse).

Upon these initial declarations and actions, Trump would then make an address to the nation delineating the last four years of lawless and corrupt actions of the democrats and Left including point-by-point details of the election irregularities that are threatening to disenfranchise the mass of the electorate and permanently damage faith in our electoral system.

In my opinion, no President in history has been more justified in talking such actions. The last four years of lawless persecution of the office of the presidency coupled with these latest violations of the most central and sacred mainstay of our republic demand executive action. Twitter outrage and fervent expostulations at rallies are now exhausted. This is now the “time for choosing.”

    Down arrow hit in error.

    Going scorched earth sounds like a perfect plan once there’s nothing left to lose.

    But, where’s Mr. Barr?

    Terence G. Gain in reply to freespeechfanatic. | November 7, 2020 at 1:42 pm

    Your second option is doomed to fail. President Trump now has 95% of the media against him and perhaps 49% of the public. If he does as you suggest those percentage will rise to 99.9 % and 75%.

    I think the election contained too much fraud to stand, but the fate of the nation is now in the hands of Thomas, Alito, ACB, Gorsuch and Kavanagh. If they do not set aside the result then PDJT should voluntarily leave with his head held high. He has fought as hard as one man could and he has created a new working class, multi racial party. The Democrats are hoping he folows your advice. And destroys himself.

    “”address to the nation delineating the last four years of lawless and corrupt actions of the democrats and Left””

    He’d have a fun time explaining why he didn’t do anything about any of it until now.

smalltownoklahoman | November 7, 2020 at 8:30 am

A couple days too late but at least now if we do catch them in the act we have some legal recourse for holding people accountable.

Someone needs to go to jail over this. Probably several someones.

    txvet2 in reply to Voyager. | November 7, 2020 at 8:04 pm

    They will. Many members of the Trump Administration will be off to jail after their show trials. These are not Democrats they’re putting in power, they’re Marxists, and some of them make Lenin look like a moderate.

Terence G. Gain | November 7, 2020 at 1:28 pm

I found this article by retired accountant and former spook Larry Correia about red flags raising concerns of election fraud very persuasive, but I know nothing about Correia’s bona fides.

I sent 3 reference to the article to CTH, (with and without the link). One appeared briefly but was taken down. So to paraphase PDJT I don’t know what the heck is going on.

I think enough fraud and irregularities occurred to alter the result, but I don’t know if it can be proved.

I see no way that this could have been implemented with any assurance.
