Occasionally the Supreme Court gets it right and in a rarity, leveling a historic 9-0 decision, SCOTUS just sidestepped two major cases concerning partisan gerrymandering. This allows controversial district maps to stand and be used in this fall’s midterm elections just the way they are.
That’s great news for Democrats and Republicans are incensed over it. They had their hearts set on redistricting voting districts… i.e. partisan gerrymandering. They’ll literally do anything to steal an election including gerrymandering, acquiring the d**d vote and recruitment illegal aliens and refugees to vote. Those are just a few of their favourite tricks.
You need to ask yourself if Dems are willing to illegally and unethically unseat a sitting president simply because he’s a Republican and they do not like him, how far will they go to rig an election?
As much as they can possibly get away with, occasionally with the support of government agencies. They bend the rules exactly as far as they could and had intended to do so in the midterms too. Their blue tide is more of a drip and this. Things are just not looking good for leftists from the approaching elections.
This decision is a huge one from SCOTUS.
Democrats won a struggle in a lower court, however, the Supreme Court’s conclusion on the Wisconsin case Monday would restrict who can bring these cases later on.
A second instance from Maryland involved the Republicans demanding a district map drawn by Democrats. The justices stated that a lower court did not act improperly in leaving the map in place. In an unsigned opinion without a dissents, the justices said that the challengers failed to reach the high bar of showing”irreparable injury” that would be crucial to get a preliminary injunction to block the map.
“Even if we presume — contrary to the findings of the District Court — that plaintiffs were likely to be successful on the merits of their claims, the balance of equities and the public interest tilted contrary to their request for a preliminary injunction,” the court stated.
The court’s ruling in the Maryland case means that for today, the justices will leave having to answer whether the court can specify a benchmark for when politicians move too far in drawing lines to benefit 1 party over the next for another day.
This issue is sure to come before the court again, however, and it is one reason it’s so important that President Trump choose another constitutional originalist to sit down on the court when another vacancy comes up.
For instance, Kennedy was viewed as the swing vote on this circumstance. Rumor has it he’ll retire this summer and President Trump will fill his spot. This could solidly weigh the Supreme Court in favor of conservatives for the first time in many years.
The last time the Supreme Court heard a significant partisan gerrymandering case, in 2004, four conservative justices said the matter should be decided by the political branches, not the courts. But Kennedy was unwilling to bar all future claims of injury from partisan gerrymanders. That stance may soon be moot.
It might seem a whole raft of rulings are going against Democrats and their misuse of voting. Judges ruled this past week that you can wear clothing with political expressions to the voting booth.
That is a win for free speech, something the left abhors. Democrats are constantly whining about how unjust the elections are, all the while hoping to corrupt the voting process . For example, attempting to **l off voter ID. Recently, it hasn’t been working for them, making me grin.
That really is not anything new for the left. They’ve been doing so for decades where they try to gerrymander districts so that Democrats can win more seats although the majority do not want them there.
Unfortunately for the Dems, not all judges are liberal and the liberal justices on the Supreme Court elected to punt this one.
It seems that Americans are likely to provide the left a much larger boot in 2018 than they did in 2016. Good times. The Trump wave remains building and it appears like it is going to crush the Democrats flat.
Meanwhile, expect the shrill whining from the left to intensify as they know their time is short and they’ll fight every inch of the way including cheating when it comes to elections.
