In a world of conflicting opinions, authority is essential to getting anything done. We exercise authority over our children as parents, over our diet when shopping for food, over our money, our health care, our subordinates at work (if we have any), our pets, and in many other situations. We similarly cede authority to others for mutual or individual benefit: parents, teachers, doctors, firemen, plumbers, law enforcement, commanding officers, judges, etcetera.
The key to authority is that it must be earned by the party who is given authority and granted by those who are subject to it. Otherwise, there is no grant of authority, thus no authority, and any attempt to pretend otherwise is liable to founder.

Authority can be seized. An invading army, for instance, can seize authority by force of arms. Kill enough people and resistance wanes. Authority isn’t granted in these cases but it is resisted less due to fear of harm. Authority of this type is illegitimate, prone to resistance, and always teetering on the brink of total dissolution. The moment the people subject to this type of authority perceive their own strength relative to their oppressor’s, the authority evaporates. This is why totalitarian states must continuously project indomitable strength to dissuade meaningful resistance.
It is possible to acquire authority by deceit, in such a way that those who grant authority either do not realize they have done it, or grant it to someone unintended. This type of authority is illegitimate though the pretext devised to acquire it creates an illusion of legitimacy.
Authority via deceit is akin to a race wherein the winner takes a short cut to arrive first. He is granted “winner” status despite the fact he did not run the same race as every other contestant. When this happens in sports, the person who took the shortcut has cheated. If it is discovered before awards are given, he is disqualified. If it happens after the awards are handed out, the awards are revoked, any prizes must be returned, the victory is erased from the record books, and the faux “winner” is disgraced.
In the old days of the Wild West, cheaters were simply shot.
It is a fact that in American culture, deceit is repugnant. Deceit is less likely to be overlooked or forgiven than almost anything else. The reason is that deceit is a way to infiltrate our defenses, effectively leaving us defenseless. A coward who knows he cannot overcome a strong man in a fair fight may employ deceit to disarm his opponent first, thus removing his advantage. This is what Japan tried in World War II at Pearl Harbor. They couldn’t take on our navy directly, so they attacked without declaring war. They received their reward in the years that followed.
Americans do not like cheaters, deceit, lies, cowardice, or sneaks. This is why Benedict Arnold’s name is infamous in American history. He betrayed George Washington by plotting to surrender West Point to the British. The plot was discovered, forcing Arnold to defect to the British side. He then commanded British forces against the very men he once commanded on the American side. Arnold’s name, by betraying his men, became synonymous with filth.
Now, our country has the sad duty of dealing with recent events so rife with deceit and betrayal that there are no equivalents in history. The people who collaborated to manipulate our elections in 2020, and likely other elections besides, did so to claim authority by deceit. It appears to have been the final act in a series of similar acts, that covertly seized authority in many places over time: over such offices as sheriffs, district attorneys, board of elections, mayors, etc. Because the malefactors appear to have been largely successful in their nefarious plans, most attempts to seek redress by filing grievances have been thwarted.
One case may be different. The petitioner is Raland J. Brunson of Ogden, Utah. The case, number 22-380, is currently on the docket to be heard by the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS). There are 388 “respondents” named in the case, all of whom are or were members of Congress at the time of the events described in the complaint.
The complaint is worth reading in its entirety but it comes down to this: on January 6th, 2021, Congress was assembled in Washington, D.C. to count votes for the 2020 Presidential Election. They were notified by over 100 members that there was sufficient factual evidence to justify a claim that the election was “rigged.” Despite this notification, the 388 named respondents refused to investigate the claim.
By refusing to investigate, the respondents “adhered to the enemy” and committed “treason and fraud.” The result of their inaction in a situation where their oath under the Constitution requires action, is that authority was seized, not granted. As the complaint states, “A successfully rigged election has the same end result as an act of war.”
The Constitution is the law of our land. It does not grant rights to citizens but defends inherent rights that each person has at birth. It states that no provision of the Constitution can be construed in a way that denies those rights, nor can Congress lawfully enact any law that conflicts with the Constitution. One of those rights is the right to redress grievances, a right that has been consistently denied to the people in matters related to election fraud over the past two or more years.
In law, a well-known principle is that “fraud vitiates everything.” Any effect of fraud may therefore be nullified or reversed, no matter what it is, including the removal from office of those persons who gained those offices fraudulently. Remember that in the United States, governmental authority is granted by the people via elections. If an election is illegitimate due to fraud, then no grant of authority was made. Therefore, any persons who benefitted from fraud in elections literally do not have lawful authority. They cannot command a subordinate, sign legislation, or order the public to do anything.
Sometimes, authority is an illusion. In America today, there are people who have usurped authority in government for their own ends. They are no better than a gang of rapists and do not deserve our deference or respect.

I think it’s a fake by SCOTUS. If they actually hear the evidence and rule accordingly then for certain #brainfartbiden gets kicked out creating a Constitutional mess and I believe the coward Chief “Justice” is already working on dodging that bullet.
IMAO, the court will go through the motions and then deny fraud “due to lack of credible evidence”.
In that event (“dodging that bullet”), the US Military will respond and defend the Constitution…believe it!
The military is not on the side of the people
Some aren’t, but most are. Pres. Trump commands the Marines. Military Intelligence is with Pres. Trump. It’s my understanding that with his Executive Orders Pres. Trump is still President. In any case the Military must and will step in if the SCOTUS fails in its duty to uphold the Constitution. This could be what we’ve all been waiting for. “Military is the only way” it has been said.
Hope you’re right Dennis!
Don’t depend on the military. Look around it’s being decimated and weakened. The true soldiers have left or are leaving. This is just spreading Hopium.
You’re watching the TV military, the true military is on our side. You just don’t get to see it while all this is going on. Have faith!
Do you think that Vindman was a one off? Hell, he has a twin brother that was also a (ahem) officer in our military. I like to think that people like that weren’t in the military when I was in the 80’s, but they probably were.
There have always been traitors military or not. Generals are paid off to go to war for the elites. But, are military is still strong.
The forced mRNA vax injections and boosters are destroying the U.S. Military mentally
and physically. They will not be capable of fulfilling their duties. In 3 – years they will be
hospitalized, dead, or awaiting for their demise.
dc is not a state. it is foreign territory. they have no authority. this kabuki theater is to open eyes % ears of those who will pay attention we are at 81% right now. we are in 5 gen warfare.
The court isn’t ruling on fraud. They are ruling on whether the legislature failed it’s duty and responsibility to take the ten days in order to address a claim (s) of fraud. The plaintiffs claim they were harmed as a result of Congress failing to perform it’s duty whereas claiming foreign actors inserted themselves into the election process and/ or counting equipment, whereby fraudulently allowing the power of the people be stolen and given to said foreign actors. Failure to investigate whether foreign actors played a role in our elections is a Capitol case involving Treason and can carry the death penalty.
This no laughing matter. Its as serious as the Rosenburg’s treason case whereby they conspired to sell the Soviets our nuclear secrets back when the US was the only country in possession with said knowledge to make one, placing the entire world in danger.
SCOTUS is not ruling on election fraud at all. CONGRESS violated their Oath of Office in numerous ways, aided the enemy by not investigating and are subject to treason! This is it in a nutshell
Until the treasonous bastards are arrested and shot or hung this type of Ridiculousness will continue. It’s time for a revolution and it’s time for Bubba and his friends in the militias to start fighting because they are literally communists doing everything that they can to weaken our military invade our country steal our assets and they’re doing it to give 10% to the big guy. They are not in our government they are enemies of our country and they all GOP and Democrat need to be shot.
“This country, with its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it. Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing government, they can exercise their constitutional right of amending it, or their revolutionary right to dismember it or overthrow it.” — Abraham Lincoln
“Public sentiment is everything. With public sentiment, nothing can fail; without it nothing can succeed.” — Abraham Lincoln
This case hits the nail on the head. If the SC fails this case, it will the remedies will fall upon the people to exercise their Constitutional duty to remove the treasonous government and replace it with that secures our Constitutional rights.
The SCOTUS MUST rule on this case. They have NO other option. I believe they have no option to sit this one out. Congress failed to uphold their oaths of office. Treason. Death penalty. Also for Biden (already dead), Harris, Pence and Pelosi (both tribunaled). The military (Trump’s military) because he’s still CIC will step in if SCOTUS doesn’t rule. We are foreign occupied right this moment. There is no need for patriots to take to the streets. Be calm and stay inside. Our real military has this. And, pray that one man’s lawsuit tears down this house of cards. We will love how this ends!
Well said!! 100% agree.
Our military has this? So where the hell have they been for the past three years???? You REALLY need to wake up!
Think about it! This is beyond just a few treasonous people! There are 200,009 sealed indictments ready to open! There are MANY other thousands who took part in this decades or even centuries long attempt to become a One World Government! This is Revelations! Do you think it takes just a few months or weeks to conquer something of this magnitude? I also have been through my own personal disappointment and feelings of being led by the nose by Deep State minions to “keep us at bay”, but once I saw the enormity of this situation; God versus Satan, I had to realize that this was going to take some time. From my research and daily review of things over the past 3+ years, it appears we are very near to the precipice. Am I 100% sure, no. God has never revealed the date of his plan. But daily, I see His plan coming together with his Children who are actively taking part in it. It is simply amazing. I listen to Julie Green Prophecies and many of these have come true and continue to every day at an amazing rate. Keep the faith, God wins, so do we. These are Biblical times. Be happy to be a part of the largest military operation in history around the world. Take care!
With Milius in charge?
The military has been arresting child traffickers in underground tunnels(dumbs) worldwide and taking back the gold that was stolen, in the tunnels. this will all come out soon!
Cooler heads will prevail
I hope very fervently that you are correct but with the corruption in the US government so wide spread I have my doubts ! Also We The People live in a Constitutional Republic with laws and not a BANANA REPUBLIC where a military junta or overthrow can take place ! Why do you think a US President has to go to the US Congress in order to declare a state of WAR ? FDR December 1941!
Totally agree every word
Also, if scotus fails to rule in favor, they are also guilty of treason and will be handled accordingly.
flintlocks at gitmo, 50′
Excellent article by the way…
Good article and well written!
Sooooo, the US govt waived their right to respond on 11/23/2022. What happens next? Does the case just sit there until it eventually gets heard? Or the SC decides they won’t want to rule on it? Any legal types out there know the answer?
We need some Republicans with some balls. The problem is that the Repub’s don’t want to mess things up either, Reason being– Most have their feet in the fire also..
The gov’t did not want to charge their clients (388+ individuals) for a reply because they know the court is going to dismiss this case based on fatally flawed complaint.
So, the gov’t is allowing this to go to SCOTUS unchallenged. It doesn’t matter at this point what SCOTUS rules. IF this suit is allowed to move forward in the trial court, It will not survive a motion to dismiss.
ANY competent atty can see this and know immediately what is going on…this is a train wreck looking for a suitable place to happen. Do you really think that the legal system is going to allow pro se litigants to legally overturn anything??? Pro Se litigants have lost BEFORE they physically enter the court room.
However, I am watching this proceed to its conclusion. I am using this situation to educate some individuals.
Those individuals are not on this chat section.
there is a conference of the 9 justices scheduled for Jan 6, 2023 to decide next steps, but they could choose to act sooner if needed, that is what Loy Brunson has been saying
?questionable. Very ?questionable but, let’s hope scotus has seen enough.
I this great country, voting is the paramount requirement in selecting exactly which people represent our wishes and requirements. I would think that as a result, in our government that if there was even a hint of malfeasance in the votes cast for any official, much less the President, all things would stop until it was investigated. I am shocked that with all of the evidence gathered in the 2020 presidential election showing that the theft of the election had taken place, 60 courts of law denied to hear even the evidence, due to their hatred and/or bias against the lawful winner, President Trump. Millions and millions of people have even been censored and banned from speaking about it. if the evidence is examined in a court of law, it will be evident that a massive amount of crime involving vote switching, destruction of Trump ballots, ballot manipulation, manipulation of voting machines by foreign entities as well as corrupt election officials, conspired to deny the legal winner, President Trump of his second term. I sincerely hope that the United States Supreme Court will now hear the cases as well as the evidence.
It’s sad to read the historical propaganda in this article. The Japanese did declare war 3 days before the attack. It would be wise to do deeper research before continuing to perpetuate this American propaganda myth.
Sounds like you are referring to what is called a “debatable point”, along the lines of theories that the WTC collapsed due to demolitions rather than airplanes crashing into the buildings. I don’t see why anyone should be obliged to accept a claim like this because there are proponents of it.
The Japanese wrote a declaration of war three days before their sneak attack on Pearl Harbor. However something like the translation of the complete declaration, which was pages long stating much more than the declaration of war, did not get to the American government until hours after the attack had ended!
MAYBE STEW DOESN’T UNDERSTAND WHAT IS GOING ON.
SCOTUS IS NOT HEARING AN ELECTION FRAUD CASE…….THAT IS FALSE AND MISLEADING…..IT IS SIMPLY
A WRIT OF CERTIORARI TO FORCE THE FEDERAL 1OTH CIRCUIT APPELLATE COURT TO RULE ON THE APPEAL THAT THAT IS BEFORE THEM: BRUNSON v ADAMS, et., al.
NO MORE AND NO LESS
Explain then why the case is on the Supreme Court docket. And if you can respond without using all caps, it would be appreciated.
SCOTUS is the only court left to seek relief if the Federal District Appellate Court refuses to take any action. THAT is what the Writ Of Certiorari is for. It is to seek relief at the next higher court when the lower court will not act on an appeal or Writ or whatever is before the court. A ruling on a Writ Of Certiorari can also be issued by a higher court to force a lower court to follow the law and legal precedent.
it’s past that point
Raland’s case was sent up to SCOTUS under an emergency measure of national security and when it was given a case file, the 10th dismissed it, and now SCOTUS has it
case 22-380 on supreme court docket for a 9 justice conference on Jan 6th 2023 will decide if they will take it up or not, takes 4 yeahs to do that
It is not an election fraud case, it is a dereliction of duty case.
So now any loss is voter fraud, gimme a break…
After taking over the voting process, yes. At this point, it might not be possible to achieve a fair result anywhere. This isn’t because of “any loss” but because the entire voting process has been corrupted. There were Republicans who didn’t want to talk about election fraud before the mid-terms because they thought they had a chance. I spoke with some of them myself. Now, they are willing to talk about election fraud. My feeling is that they shouldn’t have participated in the first place. If you think an election is rigged but are willing to participate against the chance of a win, you are as much of a problem as the people who orchestrate the fraud. It can’t work if no one participates.
There have been ninety-two (92) lawsuits filed that are relevant to the 2020 Presidential election.
The results as of 2/22/2022 are:
Twelve cases have been withdrawn or consolidated. (These are not wins or losses to either side.)
Forty-one cases have been stopped from proceeding (dismissed) due to legal technicalities (standing, timing, jurisdiction, etc.). These have nothing to do with the merits of the case and should also not be considered wins or losses for either side.
Note: That more than a third of the lawsuits were not allowed to proceed to an evidentiary hearing is more of an indictment that many judges appear to be afraid of opening this pandora’s box.
Remaining are Thirty-nine (39) lawsuits relevant to the 2020 Presidential election where a judge has ruled or will rule on the merits.
The results so far are:
Thirty cases are completed (adjudicated). These are where the court heard arguments, considered evidence (where applicable), and then formally ruled on statutory iissue, etc. Of these:
• Twenty-two cases were WON by Trump, et al.
• Eight cases were lost by Trump, et al.
• Nine cases are still active and have not yet been decided — so the ultimate winner and loser of these cases has not been determined.
Note: That despite all the noise about fraud, only three (3) of these lawsuits materially dealt with voter illegalities (citizens voting twice, votes from deceased persons, etc.). Interestingly, all three of these cases are still open.
Additionally, just six (6) lawsuits addressed voting machine inaccuracies (purposeful or accidental). Two of these were dismissed (due to jurisdiction), one was ruled against (although no discovery was granted), and three are still open (discovery was granted).
The government didn’t respond because this case is dead in the water. There is no court date for this at SCOTUS.
You are wrong, November 30, 2022, DISTRIBUTED for Conference of 1/6/2023.
Why would the Supreme Court hear a case that has already been won by the plaintiff in default?
IMO … it’s all theater and nothing will become of this. Wishful thinking on us people who want voter integrity!
First, since Joe Biden has entered the White House and is sitting in the chair of the President, in spite that unconscionable election fraud scheme, that mullah president of Iran to act in appeasement to fulfill all Rouhani wants for this Islamic Shiite agenda will easily control Biden.
This is because the ignorant, feeble- minded and weak will be no match for the clever sly and manipulating mullah, Rouhani, and now Raisi. For his will use Biden as his useful idiot In other words, Biden will play the stooge and tools for the achievement of all of this short and long term aggressive jihadist goal.
Second, before the November election I had keyboard that “Joe Biden doesn’t belong in the White House, he belongs in a senior citizens retirement community designed for assisted living.”
Now after that hoax of an election that reeks of the corruption of voter fraud, which no doubt Biden had his sinister hand in with his scheme to make himself President. Then after he got into Office, he did much harm to America and many awful despicable ways.
So, it’s now better and more appropriate to keyboard that to keyboard the message that “Joe Biden doesn’t belong in the White House, he belongs in prison.”
One of the reasons that Joe Biden gives the Muslim tyrants on power in that Islamic tyrannical regime everything they demand is because he actually “owes” much to that Iranian “mullah regime.”
This is so because Biden knowingly and willingly allowed those insidious Muslim tyrants of Iran to actually meddle and interfere in the American presidential election system by supporting the Biden bid for the Oval Office during the election year of 2020.
So now in the year 2022 that that “mullah regime” with their stooge and useful idiot to archive they want to obtain on their Islamic agenda.
One of the many reliable sources that will confirm this is the video documentary TRUMP CARD by Dinesh D’ Souza.
About that crime of election fraud in 2020 November. That massive rigged fake “election” was a criminal affront to the US Constitution.
That awful man ,Joe Biden , was illegally accepted as the official US “President” in spite of the obvious election hoax .For Biden was and is the person backed by evil people in higher up power players ,as George Soros , Nancy Pelosi , Barack Obama and others.
Therefore the decent , good and wise man ,Donald Trump was ,overthrown ,forced out of the Office of the Presidency that he by all legal and ethical rights should have stayed in the Office of the US Presidency .
The Bible does informs its reader “It is not good to accept the person of the wicked, to overthrow the righteous in judgement.”
Proverbs 18 ;5. [K.J.V.]
Joe Biden is such a loser that he had to have the help of others in power who are much more intelligent than him to scheme to have a massive election fraud in order to appear to have “won” the election. With the aid of others in power who are much more in than he is.
That despicable and unconscionable rigged November election hoax that Biden took part in reveals that a completely wicked corrupt, unethical politician Joe Biden actually is.
Therefore since that hoax of an election that reeks of the corruption of voter fraud, which no doubt Biden had his sinister hand in with his scheme to make himself President.
Now after that hoax of an election that reeks of the corruption of voter fraud, which no doubt Biden had his sinister hand in with his scheme to make himself President.
So the message that “Joe Biden doesn’t belong in the White House, he belongs in prison.”
it’s the ones that have a hand up his butt making his mouth move that we’re after…
Thank GOD for the AR-15 in the capable hands of MAGA Patriots! And 20 million armed combat veterans. And every police force that has been de-funded, demonized and demoralised by the left. And all our pro-trump border patrol. And all the ex-democrats that finally awakened.
Don’t forget that Trump’s 3 SCOTUS picks were McConnel recommendations and that’s why, short of Judge Thomas (and the Obama assassinated Scalia) they are all cowards.
SCOTUS MUST take this case because it is a Constitutional Crisis issue. 100 Representatives in the House brought to the attention of the House that there was malfeasance in the 2020 Election, and that they have absolute proof of an election being stolen. The issue is the FACT that these warnings were completely ignored by the House Speaker. There are laws that cover these sorts of issues. If OUR nation is to remain a Constitutional Republic, which is what we are as a nation, then this should have been investigated and because it wasn’t and was ignored, then the Rights of The People have been infringed upon. They cannot ignore this case. Also, for this to even make it to the docket at least 4 Justices have to agree to look at this case before they even take it. What we need to do is pray to the Lord and repent as a nation, as a people, because these are historical events happening and God moves in just such cases FOR His people that are called by His name. If this case gets thrown out then we KNOW that SCOTUS has been corrupted just like the communist Democrats and RINO’s. Then this issue can have the possibility of becoming an actual physical 2nd Civil War. Right now we are living through what is called 5th Generation Warfare which is what we see going on all around us. This is a war for the minds of the people through propaganda, subversion subterfuge within the government. If SCOTUS tosses this case after reviewing it, we will then be seriously screwed because our entire nation is built on the premise of The Law as the final arbiter on all issues.
It doesn’t matter that the courts say there was fraud or not. What matters is the fact they were legally required to investigate and they did not
