Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill appealed the lower court’s injunction to the state supreme court at 4:38 PM on Monday afternoon and the justices came back with their ruling at 5:18 PM – an usually quick turnaround time. 15:51

Unfortunately, ALL American courts are corrupt today. Unfortunately, the only solution is purging the US Congress of the Republicrats and even the courts are involved in that procedure, e.g. the railroading of Roy Moore.
