Democrats Take Redistricting Back to Newer, Bluer Courts

RALEIGH – Well, another election has come and gone in the Old North State and, despite Republicans’ many fumbles, Democrats still find themselves in the minority on Jones Street. So, what’s left to do but sue, of course.

Yet another lawsuit has been filed to challenge legislative districts in North Carolina, claiming they violate the constitution and demanding new maps for 2020.

The motivations for the continued litigation over district maps could not be more clear; Mr. Elias’ Twitter profile says he is a “lawyer fighting to elect Democrats.”

Actually, the Left has had enough success in the courts by bringing lawsuit after lawsuit to enact political policy via the judiciary, it’s hard to blame them for going back to the well again. The recent election just improved their odds, after all.

They even argue in their suit that the maps discriminate against Democrats to the point it can’t raise money, attract candidates, or win seats a mere week after it came out on top of and election after raising record amounts of cash. Do you think for a minute that an Anita Earls opinion isn’t going to find favor with such an argument?

This shows how far reaching the negatives effects are from the Republican power players completely dropping the ball on protecting the originalist faction of the N.C. Supreme Court. “Fair maps” to Justice-elect Anita ‘Social Justice’ Earls are maps that inordinately benefit Democrats at the voting booth. That’s why activists on the Left went to such great extent to get her elected, and openly celebrate her partisan bias, while ignorantly decrying a “Trump-stacked federal court system.”

That’s why Gov. Roy Cooper has openly taken comfort in the Democratic majority on the Supreme Court bench, suggesting they will side with the Left and not necessarily the law.

And that means, slowly but surely, Democrats plan to wrestle control of the government. New Democrat judges, new Democrat-friendly maps, new Democrat majorities on Jones Street.

Republicans completely forfeited their opportunity to elect those jurists that interpret the law of the people instead of invent new laws when they failed to protect former Justice Edmunds and seemed to walk away from Justice Barbara Jackson.

Now we will all pay for it through years of political lawsuits and political judicial opinions, all to the benefit of the Left.
