Democratic Supreme Court Justices Go Too Far

The world is nothing like you thought it was..

With elections looming, the Democrats are pulling out all the stops to ensure a victory. This includes messing with the district maps.

In fact, a dozen GOP Pennsylvania lawmakers are now pushing back by introducing legislation to impeach four Democratic Supreme Court Justices for ruling the state’s congressional district maps were unconstitutionally gerrymandered.

In January, Pennsylvania Supreme Court determined that the current congressional districts in the state were unfair to the Democratic party. Then the GOP-led state Senate and House was tasked with redrawing the districts.

Then in February, two Pennsylvania Republicans submitted a new map prior to the deadline that was given last month after the ruling.

Now Republicans are making a push to impeach the justices for the ruling.

“The Republicans moved to impeach Justices David Wecht, Christine Donahue, Kevin Dougherty and Debra McCloskey Todd, all Democrats who found the state’s congressional map was designed to favor Republicans and must be replaced before the May primary. Justice Max Baer (D), who also voted to strike down the map, but said it could remain in place until 2020, wasn’t mentioned in the impeachment resolutions,” writes The Huffington Post. “The legislation comes a little more than a month after state Rep. Cris Dush (R) urged impeachment of the Democratic justices. The state Supreme Court ruled in January 5-2, along party lines, that congressional districts drawn in 2011 were so lopsided to benefit Republicans that they violated the guarantee of free and equal elections. The court gave lawmakers three weeks to draw a new map with Gov. Tom Wolf (D), but imposed its own plan once they failed to reach an agreement. Two Republican appeals to the U.S. Supreme Court and a federal lawsuit have been unsuccessful in blocking the new map.”

Gerrymandering is when political boundaries are drawn purposely to give a party a numeric and political advantage over an opposing party. There is no law against gerrymandering and is a common technique often used by both the GOP and Democrats.

Dush said in a memo that the ruling forcing the Pennsylvania congressional district maps to be redrawn was an overstep of judicial authority.

“The five Justices who signed this order that blatantly and clearly contradicts the plain language of the Pennsylvania Constitution engaged in misbehavior in office,” said Dush in the memo to fellow House members.

The resolution legislation was drafted back in January when the Supreme court made the ruling. The U.S. Supreme Court also denied the GOP lawmakers’ request to challenge the decision.

Pennsylvania Democratic Governor Tom Wolf disagreed and called the new map “fair.”

“I applaud these decisions that will allow the upcoming election to move forward with the new and fair congressional maps,” said Wolf in a statement. “The people of Pennsylvania are tired of gerrymandering and the new map corrects past mistakes that created unfair congressional districts and attempted to diminish the impact of citizens’ votes.”

The new map will likely help the Democrats pick up two more seats.

“This is basically 7th-grade civics class all over again, the separation of powers and the authority of the legislature,” said Dush to The Hill. “The courts basically are there to interpret when there’s conflict in the law, and they don’t have any sovereignty.”

“But Republicans control both chambers of the state legislature, and therefore the impeachment process. Dush said Republican leaders in the state legislature were especially keen to target Wecht, who won election to his ten-year term in 2015 while promising to examine the legality of district maps,” writes The Hill.

President Donald Trump said that Penn. GOP lawmakers should challenge the new map “all the way to the Supreme Court, if necessary.”


“Your Original was correct!” tweeted Trump. “Don’t let the Dems take elections away from you so that they can raise taxes & waste money!”

Not all Republican lawmakers seem up to the challenge though.

“Nonetheless, we respect the decision of the U.S. Supreme Court and are prepared to move on to other issues of importance to the people of Pennsylvania,” said Mike Turza, Penn. House Speaker.

Not to mention, the last time a judge was impeached in Pennsylvania was back in 1994, after a justice was found guilty of a felony.

Even if the lawmakers are unsuccessful, this move will likely inspire more states to focus on gerrymandering and make Democrats think twice before trying to pull the same stunt.

    When judges play politics as these 5 “Democrat” Justices did, it is “live by the sword, die by the sword.”

    When judges legislate, they can expect legislators to respond in kind. Even in California, the voters recalled Chief Justice Buird who refused to enforce its death penalty ever.

    Well, I’ll say it for the umpteenth time: REVOLUTIUON will be the final SOLUTION – guaranteed; the Godless, Satan worshiping, power-mad NWO-elitist ghouls are large and in charge and voting has become akin to a third world banana Republic – we’ll be voting with our guns and they know that and that is why their NWO-FBI is committing all of these gun-control, false flag mass shootings! They have stacked the judicial system with, as M. Savage has defined them, with Red Diaper Doper Baby judges so they are always in a win-win situation! Armr================== ? – – – – – , we definitely will be needing them against Them!

      Philadelphia is already a Third World African s—hole which should be given to Camden NJ. Think of all the welfare payments that the PA taxpayers won’t have to make when all the African welfare cases are New Jersey’s problem.

        I used to be a Field Service Engineer traveling all over the states and occasionally across the pond. The “City of Brotherly Love” was one of my most dreaded trips. Plainly and bluntly, if you ain’t a “brother”, you ain’t “loved.”

      Wow!! Paranoia at its peak! Another gun loving redneck who thinks that his gun will solve a political problem. If the judges favor the GOP they are doing a great job, if they favor the Dems. they are unpatriotic, should be impeached and shot on sight. What drivel from an ignoramus.

        The issue is that the judges don’t have the authority to make up the new districts. It is up to the state legislature.

      Hmmmm! Now what did your Lord tell you people. Jesus Christ would be astounded as to why you just don’t seem to get it – “I didn’t tell you to HATE anyone!”. Get over it!

    By far, most politicians are in office to protect their job in office, in any way possible, legal or not.

      Something else that needs doing but I doubt it will ever happen, impeach a few of the judges on the US Supreme Court, it can begin with Ginsberg and Sotomayor. Ginsberg is as useless as mammary glands on a bore hog! she is 60 YO and is a prime candidate for a nursing home, I am 79 and ashamed of SCOTUS! As I understand it, SCOTUS was not established to make or pass laws, it’s sole function is to interpret the Constitution by giving its opinion which carries NO WEIGHT, at most it would be a mere suggestion of its understanding of the Constitution and nothing more!

      Nuff said!!!!

        Yes, you are right, NUFF SAID, because you want the Supreme Court to rule according to your delusional view of the Constitution. If that were true the Justices should be elected by the people and not by the President who stacks the Court with his favorites in order for them to rule in favor of whatever he wants. Yes, NUFF SAID, because if you keep writing you´ll make me throw up.

        “Nuff said”!!!! Why do you keep saying ‘Nuff said, then keep on boring us by coming back and saying ‘Nuff said’ over and over again. Don’t bother replying, it’s a rhetorical question! NUFF SAID!!!!

          When he says NUFF SAID he means that what he has just said is the only truth in the universe and the rest of us should just shut up and fear his wrath. A right wing pseudo patriot.

    This case may ultimately force the U.S. Supreme Court to revisit the issue of whether we should allow the party in power to monopolize its power thru gerrymandering. Gerrymandering has gone on for more than 2 centuries but it’s much nastier and much more cutthroat than ever before. Gerrymandering of Congressional districts thwarts the will of the people. We should force ALL STATES to use non-partisan commissions to draw Congressional districts, legislative districts, and set the rules for voting locations, hours, and qualifications to vote. There is way too much manipulation going on by the political party in power.

    There needs to be a better way to draw district maps; perhaps if both parties actually tried to draw maps that didn’t favor their own position then there could be elections that truly represented the will of the residents. What a concept, something bipartisan and fair, but don’t hold your breath.
