Far Proper Rep. Falsely Claims ‘Democratic Machine’ Paid Insurrectionists – After Urging Them to Threaten Lawmakers

“This man is a liar”

A video showing a Texas Republican voter and an official on the state’s Republican Executive Committee telling a blatantly false story goes viral on social media. Outraged Conservatives insist this is evidence that the US Supreme Court, and especially Chief Justice John Roberts, has been compromised. Some are even calling for the Chief Justice to be arrested.

Dallas GOP presidential voter Matt Patrick, who cast his vote for President Donald Trump at the Texas State House on Monday, also spoke up, delivering an easy-to-debunk fake message about why the US Supreme Court was unanimously rejected by Ken Paxtons frivolous lawsuit against Texas attorney general along with 17 other attorneys general and 126 Republican members of Congress.

Had it been successful, the lawsuit would have voided the votes of voters in four battlefield states that Joe Biden had won.

Remember, all nine judges said they would have voted against the case if they accepted it, but they refused to hear for lack of respect.

Before you listen to Matt Patrick’s speech, know that Conservative attorney Ed Whelan, who worked for Justice Antonin Scalia and is president of the Right-Wing Ethics and Policy Center think tank, was Deputy Assistant Attorney General under President George W. Bush a National Review official – debunked Patrick’s claims as “an absurd fantasy”.


Patrick’s entire story centers around an alleged meeting of the nine judges in a “closed room” with no computers or phones at the Supreme Court to discuss whether or not to take the Texas case.

As several experts have noted, the Supreme Court justices have not met in person for months due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Patrick refers to a report he claims he read “online” and describes it as something “written by someone who was currently an associate of one of the current Supreme Court justices,” he says in the C. -SPAN video also posted on Twitter by producer Howard Mortman:


“The judges went into an enclosed room … When the Texas case was brought up, he said he heard screams through the walls when Justice Roberts and the other Liberal justices insisted … Fear of what would happen if they do the right thing … moral cowardice “picture. twitter.com/JhnPN59wkP

“I’m just describing the report I’ve read and you can do whatever you want with it,” Patrick tells the Texas constituency. “He said that, as always, the judges went into an enclosed room to discuss cases they would accept or debate. There are no phones, no computers, nothing. Apart from the nine judges there is no one in the room. It’s usually very polite. They usually don’t hear a sound, they just discuss what they are doing. But when the case was brought up in Texas, he said he heard screams through the walls as Justice Roberts and the other Liberal justices insisted that this case be kept open. “

“And the reason – the words that were heard through the wall when Justice Thomas and Justice Alito Bush quoted Gore from John Roberts were: ‘I don’t give ____ about this case, I don’t want to hear about it. At that time we did not have any unrest. ‘”

“So he said that he was afraid of what would happen if they did the right thing. And I’m sorry, but that’s moral cowardice. And we at SREC [State Republican Executive Committee]I am a SREC member. We made these words very specific because the Supreme Court is ultimately supposed to be our final arbiter, our last line of defense for right and wrong, and they have failed to do their job. I think we should leave these words because I want to send you a strong message.

(It is unclear what “words” he is referring to, but irrelevant to his false story.)

Here’s Whelan’s Weigh In:

It’s an absurd fantasy. For starters, the judges did not have personal conferences. https://t.co/G7Pl6ORkNf

Well-known political scientist Norman Ornstein:

Of course, they didn’t meet in person. This is not just a delusion. They are downright lies.

Here’s some conservative ballistics instead of reviewing Patrick’s absurd story. This is Dan Gainor, who works for a right-wing media “watchdog” but cannot verify this speech:

Shocker! #JohnRoberts is a coward who doesn’t care about the constitution. # unsurprised https://t.co/efq0cMQ9VN

Of course, the story is now re-surfacing in the right-wing media because they can’t bother to verify the facts:

Right Conservative Commentator:

It is now reported that Chief Justice John Roberts did not want to take the Texas Supreme Court case because he was afraid that there would be mass riots.

We all know this means they would vote in favor of @ realDonaldTrump!
