One of the things that we hear about in a nearly constant stream is how claims that elections are fraudulent are disinformation and a threat to democracy.

It appears as though claims of voter fraud are only a threat when the left isn’t the one doing it, though.

To gain leverage, leftists then turn around, find a few examples of those on the right who commit voter fraud, and claim that the right is the faction that is committing fraud. The handful of cases they find are miniscule in comparison to the wholesale voter fraud that is happening due to manipulating electronic vote counting systems.

Now we see that claims of voter fraud have spread to the judiciary. The North Carolina Courts have declared that the legislature doesn’t have the power to change the State’s Constitution, despite the fact that the state Constitution specifically has enumerated otherwise. Why did the judge make this ruling? He says that the election was illegitimate because of racial gerrymandering.

The North Carolina Supreme Court has backed the ruling, declaring that the legislature itself is no longer a co-equal branch of government, but that its very membership is instead subject to approval of the court. Make no mistake, this is nothing more than a coup where the courts have declared that they and they alone, are in charge of the government.

This sets up a constitutional crisis. Moving forward, there are only two possible solutions to this standoff: either the legislature must back down and allow the court’s declaration that the election in 2020 was illegitimate to stand, or the legislature must ignore the court and begin impeaching justices, which will force the court to declare that act as illegitimate as well.

Either of these courses of action will result in an end to constitutional rule in North Carolina.

We are on a course that will end with only one result: The collapse of Constitutional Government in the US.

More of the “rules are not meant for me” behavior. We see it every day on blogs where trolls and miscreants refuse to stay in the bounds of socially acceptable behavior, to teachers going their own way in selecting what is to be taught in spite of governing boards, to politicians doing things their own way in spite of existing law, to activist individual judiciary, to bodies of judiciary behaving even more activist. I said a lot time ago this country is past the tipping point and every day that goes by makes it seem more so.

    Pendulums always swing both ways.

    The man who stands in the middle of the arc and forgets that lesson has a firm reminder coming.

Leftist judges are nothing but tyrants in black robes.

Don W Curton · August 22, 2022 at 7:36 am

Is this one of those situations where you kinda hope both sides loss?

Maybe impeachment of the NCSC Judges ought to be looked at.
www dot ncleg dot gov slash Laws slash Constitution slash Article4

Article 4

Sec. 17. Removal of Judges, Magistrates and Clerks.

(2) Additional method of removal of Judges. The General Assembly shall prescribe a procedure, in addition to impeachment and address set forth in this Section, for the removal of a Justice or Judge of the General Court of Justice for mental or physical incapacity interfering with the performance of his duties which is, or is likely to become, permanent, and for the censure and removal of a Justice or Judge of the General Court of Justice for wilful misconduct in office, wilful and persistent failure to perform his duties, habitual intemperance, conviction of a crime involving moral turpitude, or conduct prejudicial to the administration of justice that brings the judicial office into disrepute.

Here in NC gerrymandering was fine while the Democrats controlled the legislature. They need to move those black voters around so they can get control back. Of course that means a lot of black legislators and congressman will lose their jobs as White Left Wing Democrats tend to vote for White Left Wing Democrats over African-American Democrats in the primaries

Aesop · August 22, 2022 at 12:21 pm

Those judges are going to be impeached, then disbarred, and then no trace of their doings left but scorched and salted earth.

That’s not a “constitutional crisis”, it’s simply shooting rabid dogs where you find them, metaphorically for certain, and literally if nothing else will suffice.

The currently seated legislature will uproot the idiots in black robes branch and root, and it will leave no more trace than a depth charge explosion does in the ocean five minutes later: some froth, and some dead fish, and that’s about it.

Sic semper tyrannis, black robes or not.

Power in this country by literal black-letter expression always derives from the people, and their representatives are the closest thing to that voice, not the judiciary, nor the executive.

Some idiot judges are going to get that particular tenet of ConLaw broken over their noses like a stout and well-swung 4×4. To get their attention.
If they’re very lucky, they’ll only get ridden out of town in tar and feathers on a rail, rather than departing at the end of a gibbet.

Whatever gets the point across will do.

    Here is the problem that sets up the crisis:
    If the legislature accepts that they are not legitimate, they have opened the door for the judiciary to simply invalidate any legislature with which they disagree.
    If the legislature refuses to accept it and instead impeaches the judges, the court will simply rule that the entire legislature is illegitimate and cannot impeach them.
    So who is in charge?

      DanH · August 22, 2022 at 12:56 pm

      “So who is in charge?”

      Whomever controls the people with the guns.

        Divemedic · August 22, 2022 at 12:59 pm

        No one controls the people with the guns. That is the beauty of the Second Amendment.

          Big Ruckus D · August 22, 2022 at 4:36 pm

          Who is in charge will be determined by whether anyone is
          willing to forcibly revoke illegitimate authority presently held by those with titles and costumes. If such willingness is eventually found amongst men of good character, it will most assuredly involve doing things the judiciary finds invalid.

          The proper response by men of good character to the protests and pronouncements of a corrupted judiciary, when finally held to account, will be “tough shit”. If done correctly and at adequate scale, the arrogant posturing and overbearing bitchiness of the black robed bastards will become an unpleasant memory soon enough.

          Divemedic · August 22, 2022 at 4:51 pm

          I agree that whoever uses force will be in charge. However, no matter who that is, the American people will lose.

          DanH · August 22, 2022 at 4:59 pm

          I was not clear.
          The legislature will not comply with whatever ruling the court makes that disputes their legitimacy and the court will not comply with their own impeachment and disbarment.

          The branch of the NC government most willing to employ their gun-toting minions against the other will be the one “in charge”.

          When the rule of law ends Hama Rules prevail.

    Skyler the Weird · August 23, 2022 at 11:32 am

    The NC Legislature will do nothing. The Republicans will hem and haw and use it to fund raise. One of the judges is running for U.S. Senate. I can see her winning with the election shenanigans that go on in Charlotte, Raleigh, and Asheville.

There is no law, only Zuul.
