The socialist-controlled NC Supreme Court issued a couple of activist decisions late last week regarding Voter ID and NC Senate redistricting. In a couple of weeks, the court will be under Republican control because of the elections last month.
The citizens of the state of NC had passed a constitutional amendment enacting Voter ID. But these socialist judges, with extraordinary arrogance, held that Voter ID violates the law and the constitution.
Gerrymandering was considered legal in North Carolina when the democratic socialists controlled the state. And they used it with impunity. But when Republicans gained control, the socialists suddenly found creative interpretations to claim it is illegal. Remain mindful that the Constitution and the law had not changed. They merely pulled rationalizations out of thin air to achieve the outcome they wanted. And it worked because their fellow travelers sit on the bench.
Both rulings on Friday were 4-3. Nearly everyone acknowledges that three of the socialist judges are far-left activists. But the media/left complex has sought over the years to maintain the fiction that Justice Samuel Ervin IV is a moderate. This gentleman has spent eight years on the state’s highest court.
Justice Ervin is the grandson of the late Senator Sam Ervin who famously chaired the Watergate committee. The media absolutely loved Senator Ervin, repeatedly referring to him as a country lawyer with a southern drawl. I remember it very clearly.
This past weekend, I watched an interview featuring a gentleman named Geoff Shepard. He has written a couple of books about the concerted efforts to remove Richard Nixon from power back during the 1970’s. He devotes a chapter in one of his books to the Ervin committee.
Shepard has uncovered documents that had only recently been released within the last decade that, he asserts, prove his overall thesis. What was that thesis? That the congressional Democrats in concert with the Deep State conspired together to remove Nixon. He described Senator Ervin’s committee proceedings as a partisan witch hunt. The old Senator was NOT a simple country lawyer.
And the late Senator’s grandson on the NC Supreme Court is not a moderate. He is a progressive/socialist judicial activist, just like the other three justices he joined in these rulings on Friday.
