The absolute frame of reference is predicted by electromagnetism known as the stationary background of the Aether. It was discovered through a Doppler shift in the CMBR. <shrug>

Actually the two-way speed of light (in a round trip) has been measured and interpreted to be c. <shrug>

You are sloppy with variables. (t, x, y, z) should be the coordinate system of the stationary background of the Aether. <shrug>

Not all the infinite numbers of transforms that satisfy the null results of the MMX exhibit this trait. <shrug>

One should not pull these rules out of his ass. <shrug>

Yes, that is very corrupt. It should be ever so obviously so. What took you so long? <shrug>

It would so if you throw also in the following.
4. The principle of relativity hold everywhere and everywhen.

That is the problem. You are assuming the Lorentz transform is valid. The Lorentz transform is only a special case to Larmor's transform. See:

Get real! The Lorentz transform includes 4 that is 1-4 but Larmor's transform only includes 1-3. The rest of crap snipped due to ignorance in the difference between Larmor's and the Lorentz transforms. <shrug>
This is a typical stupid, bloated, and convoluted logic of Einstein Dingleberries after drinking load of fermented diarrhea of Einstein the nitwit, the plagiarist, and the liar. <shrug>
