This ‘stack will go down in history as one of the most important contributors to civic education ever 🤩

Amen, Jeff.

As a multi-party civil litigator for 30 years, this overall scenario resembles much of what I've done/seen. Tremendous delay is built into the process. Superhuman patience is required. I hope that the plaintiffs have the stamina to stay with this.

B/c the stakes are much higher than any case I've done.

Pray for the life and position of the current judge and the lives and the composition of the US Supreme Court to remain in place through to the conclusion of this case.

This is a modern day David vs Goliath if I’ve ever seen one. Our family went through a similar David vs Goliath 10 years ago. We had to take on the State Of Oregon for the right to make a medical decision for our 18 year old special needs daughter. They actually called us days before the surgery and threatened to sue us, the surgeon, and the hospital if we proceeded. We had legal guardianship and were told by the States Attorney we had no authority to make this decision for our DAUGHTER!

We are fighters. We grabbed our sling shot and stone and it took long 18 months. So much prayer went into the whole process. We could not even find a lawyer across the country that had experience in this kind of case and we had no money to pay for it! The attorney we hired was a patent/intellectual property attorney who heard the case and said he would take it and we would figure out the money later. What lawyer says THAT! 😂

Long story short- We won! We were David and Oregon was Goliath. We haven’t backed down to a government since! Just because they are the Goliath of all governments - doesn’t make them right! FIGHT PEOPLE! We HAVE to fight!

The Lord of hosts will prepare a lavish banquet for all peoples on this mountain;

A banquet of aged wine, choice pieces with marrow,

And refined, aged wine.

And on this mountain He will swallow up the covering which is over all peoples,

Even the veil which is stretched over all nations.

He will swallow up death for all time,

And the Lord God will wipe tears away from all faces,

And He will remove the reproach of His people from all the earth;

For the Lord has spoken.

And it will be said in that day,

“Behold, this is our God for whom we have waited that He might save us.

This is the Lord for whom we have waited;

Let us rejoice and be glad in His salvation.”

— Isaiah 25:6-9 NASB1995

Jeff, thank you for making the mundane interesting to so many people. Capturing the attention of highly distracted everyday people that really would prefer to ignore all the chaos and danger around them is necessary to flip the apple cart.

The motherlode of all lawsuits and zippo coverage from the MSM purveyors of garbage. Maybe a car chase down the L.A. Freeway would help? Incidentally, I physically winced and made some bizarre sound like I just bit into a rotten pistachio when I saw Fauci's name. It's been a while. Dog revisiting its vomit, except I'm not exactly lapping it up.

Thanks! Great summary. I hope the litigators don’t get discouraged. Any way to “multiply” or show support for them?? Take care, everyone!

Jeff, I trust your optimism and am somewhat hopeful because of it. However, the CIA steadfastly refuses to give up their files on the JFK assassination even though the CIA was directed to do so by the 1992 JFK Records Act passed by a unanimous Congress. The FBI has yet to release the surveillance videos taken from cameras around the Alfred P. Murrah building from the morning of April 19, 1995 because the "case is still under investigation". All the video taken from Pentagon area businesses and the Pentagon itself, especially the film showing something crashing into the Pentagon, is still under wraps. The government can print as much money as is needed to delay delay delay. I hope you're right.

This is the most convincing substack justifying your optimism. I'm afraid it has given me hope, which is a dangerous thing since it can lead to a crushing load of despair if it fails. But I see clearly how this is a chance that our relatively young country might not end in fascism if this case prevails. I'm still leaning toward something no human can control to wake us up, as in a catastrophe of some kind. But I appreciate the time you took to bring this to us in such detail. Thank you.

BigGov using covid-19 as an 'emergency' to stifle opposition speech, using their willing comrades in BigTech... I wonder if substack.com is facing pressure since it's been a great free speech platform.

Thanks for the breakdown and fingers crossed on the outcome!

Great article Jeff.

Let's hope and pray those that violated the Constitution and the civil rights of Americans will soon be removed from office.

Great write up today, Jeff!

Let’s hope we prevail. God is good so pray!

Tonight I refuse to watch Commie Joe. If his lips are moving he’s lying!

"(2) there must be accountability for past violations, to teach government actors a lesson and discourage future actors from similar excesses"

I think this is the most important line in the whole piece. I've long felt that the Constitution has one humongous hole: a lack of consequences for violating its protections. Governors across this country have violated our rights repeatedly and the worst thing that ever happens is their dictates get overturned. So the people suffer until the court acts, and those who caused the suffering whistle Dixie and strategize about how to do the same without running afoul of the judiciary.

As great as our Constitution is, it's really a toothless tiger.

I'll quibble with you Jeff, on one point. Government does not have the "right" to maintain order. I has the power to maintain order, but not the "right".

Thank you, Jeff - excellent analysis of this massively important and overlooked case!
