A Republican Elector from Texas named Matt Patrick told a very interesting story this week.
According to Patrick, the reason the Supreme Court declined to hear the lawsuit brought by Texas over the 2020 election is that Chief Justice Roberts was concerned about riots.
The story Patrick is telling is third party, so take from it what you will, but here’s the thing. It’s very easy to believe.

Did Chief Justice John Roberts Really Scream at Conservative Justices Over the Texas Challenge to the 2020 Elections
On Monday, as the members of the Electoral College were convening at statehouses around the nation to cast their vote for the next president of the United States, an interesting side drama was taking place in Austin, Texas, as the Texas electors convened to vote for the man who should be president.
Here’s what Matt Patrick says in the video below:
It was written by someone who was a current staffer for one of the current Supreme Court justices. I’ll just describe for you the report that I read, and you can make of it what you will. He said that the justices, as they always do, went into a closed room to discuss cases they are taking or do debate; there’s no phones, no computers, no nothing. No one else is in the room except for the nine justices. It’s typically very civil; they usually don’t hear any sound; they just debate what they are doing. But when the Texas case was brought up, he said he heard screaming through the walls as Justice Roberts and the other liberal justices were insisting that this case not be taken up. The reason…the words that were heard through the wall when Justice Thomas and Justice Alito were citing Bush vs. Gore, from John Roberts were “I don’t give a…about that case, I don’t want to hear about it. At that time, we didn’t have riots.
So what he was saying was that he was afraid of what would happen if they did the right thing. And I’m sorry, but that is moral cowardice. And we in the SREC (note, this is the State Republican Executive Committee), and I am an SREC member, we put those words in there very specifically. Because the charge of the Supreme Court is to ultimately be our final arbitrator, our final line of defense for right and wrong, and they did not do their duty. So I think we should leave these words in because I want to send a strong message to them.
Here’s the video:
"I don't give a #@&^ about 'Bush v. Gore'… at that time we didn't have RIOTS!"

This is easy to believe because Justice Roberts is supposedly a conservative but always seems to side with the liberals on the court.
And if it is true, who cares about riots? We’ve been dealing with them since May.
