Wisconsin Democratic Judge Says Duly Elected Republicans Can't Pass Laws


Recommended Posts


Democrats don't like our Constitution very much. From their perspective, there's not much to like.

Too many dos and don'ts (mostly don'ts), too many "negative rights," absolutely nothing about social justice, and where are the rights for transgenders?

Recently, Democrats have come out in favor of abolishing the Electoral College, packing the Supreme Court (gotta get that social justice agenda passed somehow), and allowing non-citizens to vote. It's almost like they don't like living in the United States very much, although you'd hurt their feelings if you gently suggest that if they don't like where they're living, they should depart for friendlier climes.

Now a judge in Wisconsin has issued an injunction against laws legally passed by the legislature by legally elected representatives of the people. How did he do that? By declaring that the legally passed laws by the legally elected representatives of the people weren't "legal" at all.

The Hill:


The Republican-controlled Legislature passed the laws in December in an unscheduled "extraordinary session" after Walker lost his bid for a third term in November.


Walker at the time denied that the bills were an attempt to reduce Evers and Democratic Attorney General Josh Kaul’s powers, writing in a Facebook post that Evers would retain “some of the broadest line-item veto authority of any governor in the nation.”

In January a coalition of left-leaning groups filed a lawsuit alleging the session in which the laws were passed was unconstitutional.


Enter Dane County Circuit Judge Richard Niess. The lawsuit landed in his bailiwick where he proceeded to rule that up is down, black is white, and it never rains in Indianapolis in the summertime.


In his Thursday ruling, Dane County Circuit Judge Richard Niess blocked the laws, denying a request by the legislature to temporarily pause his order.


"The Legislature overplayed its hand by using an unlawful process to accumulate more power for itself and override the will of the people, despite the outcome of last November's election," Evers said in a series of tweets following the ruling.


Majority rule for me, not for thee...
