(Republican Insider) – The battle for election integrity in the United States rages on, almost seven months after Joe Biden was sworn in as president, a title many of us believe he stole from President Donald Trump rather than earned from the American people.
And while the fight has been long and arduous, the ideal of election integrity just scored two very important victories. According to a report from Gateway Pundit, the Supreme Court has decided to uphold two voting laws in the state of Arizona that were being challenged.
The first law that the court upheld is known as the “out of precinct policy,” which requires elected officials to toss out ballots that were not cast in the proper place.
The second one that was upheld was the state’s ban on ballot harvesting. For those who might not know what that is, ballot harvesting is when ballots are collected by a third party.
What did the court do?
– Upheld two challenged voting restrictions in Arizona
– Declined to adopt a clear test for how Section 2 applies going forward, but offered "guideposts" that interpret when it can apply more narrowly, making it harder to win other challenges in the future

The court’s decision was 6-3 with Justices Kagan, Breyer and Sotomayor providing a dissent.
Justice Alito writes the majority opinion joined by Chief Justice Roberts and Justices Thomas, Gorsuch, Kavanaugh, and Barrett.

The most interesting aspect of the decision is how it might end up impacting those cases that are beyond the state of Arizona. Legal scholar Jonathan Turley stated that SCOTUS’s ruling here might undermine the Biden administration’s case against the state of Georgia.
However, the Court punts on a clear or binding rule for future cases: "we think it prudent to make clear at the beginning that we decline in these cases to announce a test to govern all VRA §2 claims involving rules…that specify the time, place, or manner for casting ballots"

Joe Biden was not at all thrilled with this SCOTUS decision, going on to say, “I am deeply disappointed in today’s decision by the United States Supreme Court that undercuts the Voting Rights Act.”
Then again, this is the same guy who doesn’t think black people or other minorities are capable of operating a basic home computer.
Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs also tweeted out against the decision stating the laws that were upheld are discriminatory. Basically, according to Hobbs, if you aren’t white, you’re just too dumb to vote on your own.
This is a perfect example of what actual, legitimate racism looks like, and as usual, that example comes from the hypocrites on the radical left.
Radical Progressive Katie Hobbs shows her true colors.
Hobbs can’t defend her support for illegal ballot harvesting without resorting to accusations of racism.
What’s really racist is assuming minorities can’t cast a vote w/out a white Democrat showing up to cast it for them https://t.co/jGGf1ukY1h

Preserving the integrity of our election system needs to be a top priority for this country. Democrats were essentially able to steal this last presidential election. We must not allow them to get away with all of the voter fraud and other shenanigans they have been involved with over the course of the last few years.
Otherwise, we are about to watch our own destruction. After all, a country cannot truly thrive if there is no freedom.
