They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
With SCOTUS now seeing the current administration ignoring it's decisions,Will it feel more disposed to rule favorably on election issues??
I wonder, too. At the current rate of fraud, and ignoring of laws, they surely must realize they've reached the point they either just rubber stamp the wants of their masters, or demand adherence to the Constitution.
I think the answer to your question can be found in the following:1. The Constitution says whatever the SCOTUS says that it says.2. SCOTUS relies on two sources in making all of its decisions: the magic eight-ball game and the Weather Channel.3. After rendering a decision, SCOTUS doesn’t care what happens next. It isn’t their problem.4. Not having an enforcement mechanism beyond the honor system, SCOTUS work is essentially stress-free.5. By not ruffling the feathers of Congress or the sitting president, SCOTUS justices increase their likelihood of getting a pay raise down the road.

Mustang,Step 2 does not make reference to the SCOTUS genuflect to San Fran Nan or Chuckie. Wasn't that the reason that SCOTUS could not take up the Texas case against Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan, and Wisconsin regarding those states having broken their election laws without amending those laws through the legislative process?
Hope this doesn't show up twice. I forgot and tried to post at my regular browser which does not take posts here or at AOW. The answer is also "do I want to be on the A-list in this town?" Apparently Thomas (not a party guy) is immune to that, but it has strong traction.
@ Mark: Okay, but before genuflecting to SF Nan and Chuck Schumer, the Chief Justice had to consult with the magic eight-ball. It's either that, or its because Texas has no standing to sue another state for the way they run their elections. States' rights, man.
The operative word, I think, is ENFORCE.If the Justice Dept. refuses to act, we're just screwed.Loretta Lynch didn't. Will our present AG enforce the law?I doubt it.Time to refresh the tree of Liberty.
IMO, the United States employs “selective prosecution,” and always has. Otherwise, given the mind-boggling number of laws we have in this country, every single person would have a prison record.
Lavrenti Beria: Show me the man, I'll show you the crime.I think the same sentiment was expressed in Naked Lunch.
I think it's #3 that Mustang said: It isn't their problem. Maybe it truly isn't? They're not into enforcing. Our DOJ, FBI, etc. are E-V-I-L. They are not a part of the devil's army. Don't trust 'em to do the right thing. Nope. Never will again. As Greybeard said, we're screwed UNLESS we go water that tree AND VERY SOON!
"Now" not "not" a part. They are NOW a part of the devil's army. Prove me wrong.
Two things to remember before you run for the watering can: (1) Remember the golden rule, that whoever has all the guns makes the rules, and (2) Luke 21: 10-19. All of this was foretold to us.
Thank you all for your input. Teeth or toothless, I wonder if there is regret for not forestalling this.Ala Mustang, I doubt it.They've got theirs.
Interesting question... enforcement of a Scotus decision? Why isn't that the point of our military? (snark)
Don't give Biden ideas when it comes to his next step regarding COVID vaccines.
One of the primary problems with Americans is that they seem to enjoy breaking vows and oaths almost as much as they like giving them.
GB is correct. Without enforcement, nobody cares and the administration 'owns' DOJ.
