Over the past decade or so, Abby and I have witnessed first-hand the rise of this modern #cult. The very people who screamed of tyranny and #FakeNews are the very same who voted for tyranny and fake news. Talk about self-fulfilling prophecies.

You have questions, we have answers. Let’s challenge the rhetoric!

  1. Do you think the republicans illegal redistricting process suppressed Liberal voters?
    Quote me if I’m wrong I, feel there’s far more than what meets the eye from major media. Independent media sometimes produces what the public needs to truly view.

    Wisconsin:

    — The three-judge panel in Wisconsin ruled 2 to 1 that such a violation occurred when the Republican assembly and Gov. Scott Walker (R) went to work drawing the state’s legislative districts in 2011. Judges in the majority said the Republicans drew lines to make it impossible for Democrats to receive their share of power.

    The evidence presented in a four-day trial established that “one of the purposes of Act 43 was to secure Republican control of the Assembly under any likely future electoral scenario for the remainder of the decade, in other words to entrench the Republican Party in power,” wrote Judge Kenneth Ripple, who was nominated to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit by President Ronald Reagan. —

    — A federal panel of judges struck down Wisconsin’s 2011 state Assembly maps Monday, ruling them unconstitutional.

    It’s a decision that could have broad implications for other states’ gerrymandered maps and could pave the way for a new national standard to evaluate the constitutionality and fairness of such maps.

    The order was handed down by District Judge Barbara Crabb, who was appointed by Jimmy Carter, and Circuit Judge Kenneth Ripple, a Ronald Reagan appointee. District Judge William Griesbach, appointed by George W. Bush, dissented. Ripple wrote the decision.

    The three judges found that Act 43, which carved out new districts for the state Assembly, was written to hurt Democrats.

    “It is clear that the drafters got what they intended to get. There is no question that Act 43 was designed to make it more difficult for Democrats, compared with Republicans, to translate their votes into seats,” Ripple wrote.

    But the judges stopped short of ruling on adopting the metric proposed by the plaintiffs for judging the fairness of maps, called the efficiency gap.

    Attorney General Brad Schimel said in a statement that the state is reviewing the decision and plans to appeal.

    “This 2-1 decision does not affect the results of this month’s election or any prior election and legislative district boundaries remain unchanged until the court rules on any remedy,” Schimel said.

    In the decision, Ripple wrote that it was evident that Republicans sought to construct maps that would ensure a lasting majority.–

    — It’s expected the high court could hand down a decision in the case next spring or summer. That process, though, could be delayed if the current eight justices opt to have both sides re-argue the case next year, should a ninth justice be confirmed and join the bench.

    The Supreme Court’s decision in the redistricting case – stemming from a legal challenge to congressional district maps drawn in 2011 by state lawmakers – could have significant political impact, though North Carolina already has redrawn the contested maps and the state used the newly approved districts in this year’s election. Earlier this year, a panel of three federal judges forced North Carolina to postpone congressional primaries and re-do the maps.

    The central question in the case is whether North Carolina’s Republican-controlled legislature approved oddly shaped congressional districts that were drawn illegally to pack minority voters in the 1st and 12th Congressional Districts. The plaintiffs in the case argue North Carolina lawmakers sought to specifically weaken African-American voting power across the state, which would put Democratic candidates at a disadvantage. The state’s attorneys have argued the old maps. —

    Colorado:

    DENVER — In a move Democrats hope will narrow or even shift the balance of political power nationwide, the Colorado Supreme Court ruled Monday that congressional districts crafted by state Republicans earlier this year were unconstitutional.

    The 5-2 decision means at least two GOP seats once considered safe will be up for grabs.

    “This has major implications, because Colorado now has two of the most competitive districts in the country,” said Chris Gates, the Democratic state party chairman.

    “The [national] Democratic Party intends to make Colorado a battleground state. You are going to see more money and more resources poured in here, with higher-level candidates.”

    Republicans now hold five of the state’s seven congressional seats.

    The court ruling comes at a time when redistricting plans are being contested in Texas and, next week, argued before the U.S. Supreme Court.–
