New Jersey Judge Rejects Trump Camp’s Challenge to Voting Scheme

A judge in New Jersey has rejected a challenge from the Trump campaign to the state’s mail-in voting scheme.

According to Fox News:

New Jersey federal judge shot down the Trump campaign‘s attempt to halt the state’s new mail-in voting rules, including one that allows ballots to be counted two days after Election Day even if they do not have a postmark.

In a Tuesday opinion, Judge Michael Shipp denied the campaign’s request for a preliminary injunction, ruling that the state acted within its authority to issue the rules.

“Although federal law prohibits New Jersey from canvassing ballots cast after Election Day, it is within New Jersey’s discretion to choose its methods of determining the timeliness of ballots, so long as there is no appreciable risk of canvassing untimely ballots,” the court’s ruling said.

The judge cited case law supporting New Jersey’s right to take its desired measures to protect voters from exposure to COVID-19, stating that decisions regarding “the safety and health of the people” are constitutionally entrusted to elected officials.

The judge said the Trump campaign failed to show the irreparable harm they would face should the rules remain in place.

In that case no releasing of any numbers of ballots. When ALL of the ballots are accounted for and totaled, then the numbers are released.

That is how the polling places do it. They release their numbers as soon as they are totaled.

Since when does is a federal law dismissed because a state doesn’t like it? His reasoning must be tilted toward mental derangement in using Covid as his paper shield. The fact is that if the state allows indoor eating, gyms, and beauty salons as well as mass demonstrations, where are the health concerns greater that needs to obliterate our voting laws that are explicit that extending the voting date will provide health protection since the ballots are out a month before that date.

Yet another dirtbag, liberal judge who is aiding and abetting the Democrats with their attempt to foster illegal voting through mail fraud. They have already numerous voting issues in New Jersey. Get rid of this crooked judge.

There is no question that given an honest election based on integrity of the voting process, Trump would win re-election. BUT, the fact is that there is too much opportunity for shenanigans in a mail-in voting scheme where too many so-called voter registration lists at jurisdiction election boards are just plain untrustworthy. Too many dead people still on a registration list. Ballots sent out to wrong addresses and not returned, but perhaps filled out by the recipient at the wrong address. Heck, N.Y. mailed out some 100,000 ballots incorrectly. And what is to stop crooks from registering to vote in more than one precinct. This nation is in serious trouble.

Can this case be taken to the Supreme Court? Or is the ruling by this Obama appointed judge the last word?

This judge is showing how corrupt and to what extent the liberal left is willing to go in order to win an election. Let’s get real, unpostmarked ballots! Why doesn’t he just say let’s fill out postit notes and count them as ballots. What IDIOT made him a judge? Where did this judge go to law school? Cane you say the commies are coming?

I am still astonished everyday, as more and more swamp dwellers raise their traitorous heads above the swamp gases, to show their disdain for this countries’ constitution and written laws. It was us, WE THE PEOPLE, who became lazy and stopped paying attention. That is no longer the case; beware the sleeping giant of patriots across this land. You criminals in government positions, are being weighed by your actions… WE, THE PEOPLE, ARE WATCHING!
