An Obama-appointed Federal Judge has just stolen a House seat from the GOP by ordering a new, all black Congressional district be drawn up, throwing out a plan by the Republican-controlled state legislature.
The GOP plans to appeal but the U.S. Supreme Court allowed a similar steal to stand in Alabama recently.
The ruling applies to five congressional districts – including the closely watched 6thDistrict in the northern Atlanta suburbs – as well as 10 state Senate and 11 state House districts. Jones has ordered the state to draw additional majority Black districts in metro Atlanta and near Macon.
"The remedy involves an additional majority-Black congressional district in west-metro Atlanta; two additional majority-Black Senate districts in south-metro Atlanta; two additional majority-Black House districts in south-metro Atlanta, one additional majority Black House district in west-metro Atlanta, and two additional majority-Black House districts in and around Macon-Bibb,” Jones wrote.Courts were never supposed to have this kind of power over the political process. Madison and Jefferson are rolling over in their graves over this.
The whole point of redistricting being controlled by the state legislature was to empower state governments and give the citizenry of the states the power to decide such things. This is basically Federal veto of state authority. And it is one man who gets to overturn the authority of an entire state.
It's time to tell judges like this to go to He, er, Chicago.
This is how you steal a nation, one judge at a time.
