A Comprehensive Review of Judge Thompson's Failure in Courage
Today, in the relative quiet of Christmas Eve, when it was as politically expedient as possible to do so, Judge Peter Thompson released his ruling siding with the defendants in Lake v. Hobbs, ordering the confirmation of Katie Hobbs’ so-called “win” in the gubernatorial race by a margin of 17,117 votes.
Thompson chose to enter us into Scenario B in my article outlining the two possible outcomes related to his decision. From that article:
Caving to pressure, Judge Thompson punts and scoffs at the defense for bad behavior, but says something along the lines of his dismissal of Count III (Signature Verification) in Lake’s case – “due to the fact that the transition is already in motion, the vote is certified, so we can’t change that in this court, but I am ordering…”
This will rightfully piss off two-thirds of Americans, especially those who are newly red-pilled with eyes wide open at how deliberately and meticulously their votes are being ripped off. It will no longer be safe to be a Republican who says a “Trump cult” is obsessed with imaginary election fraud, and the slow march toward what began with the 1770 Boston Massacre will accelerate here in the present time.
I see no scenario in which Judge Thompson punts the case, which would certainly be appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court, that doesn’t dial the temperature in America up to a point that would make November 2020 look like a time of national unity and togetherness.
Thompson, regardless of whether he adhered to technicalities in rendering his decision, has now joined Mark Brnovich, Doug Ducey, and countless others in the ranks of feckless Arizonans who failed to be etched in history as courageous men who acted boldly when the Republic counted on them to put a halt to corruption that threatens the existence of not only the state, but America herself.
Watch the trial again. Thompson knows Hobbs is an illegitimate winner, and that her defense had its ass handed to it by Kari Lake’s legal team, spearheaded by Kurt Olsen. You can see it on the Judge’s face as he hears evidence outlining what was, in all but plain admission, a deliberate attempt to sabotage the election outcome in favor of four Democrat statewide candidates, Hobbs included. He then bore the disgrace of being screeched at by Maricopa County’s hectoring attorney, Thomas Liddy, who is yet another Arizona “lifelong Republican” who does little but carry water for Democrats, and verbally abuse people who ask simple questions in search of transparency.
This article does not seek to determine whether Thompson was blackmailed, bribed, or threatened (probably at least one, if not all). Of course the burden is tremendous, but I don’t give a rip about that, because you shouldn’t be in the kitchen if you can’t take the heat. No judge wants to be the first to overturn a fraudulent election post-2020, especially one of such magnitude that it would launch a likely first female president (Lake) into political orbit. But nevertheless, some judge is going to have to put it all on the line, judicial aspirations and reputation included, at some point if we are to ever have a system of elections even a simple majority of Americans can trust.
You shouldn’t expect Kari Lake or her team to make any comments about the judicial corruption so long as the appeals process is ongoing. There is no need to equip the enemy with soundbites to trot out in the next court that paints the plaintiffs as contemptuous of the entire judicial system; therefore, I will shoulder the burden and dice apart the contradiction-filled decision that came down today in ten pages.
