Republicans Get Smacked Down By Judges For Gerrymandering North Carolina


Well folks, we actually got some good news
from the court system this week. We’re a, a judicial panel in the state of
North Carolina ruled that the district maps drawn by the Republican controlled legislature
were so grossly gerrymandered that Democrats in the state would never have a chance in
another election all because of the way the Republicans had drawn these districts. And so now this judicial panel told these
Republicans in the legislature that, hey, um, this is gross. This is awful. You’ve got two weeks to draw them like a normal
person and to stop gerrymandering, all of the Democrats into heavily Republican districts. I want to read a little bit here from the
actual ruling from this panel itself. This is from the ruling. The effect of these carefully crafted partisan
maps is that in all but the most unusual election scenarios, the Republican Party will control
a majority of both chambers of the General Assembly. In other words, the court finds that in many
election environments, it is the carefully crafted maps and not the will of the voters
that dictate the election outcomes in a significant number of legislative districts. And ultimately the majority control of the
General Assembly. Now I know a lot of people out there thinking,
okay, well yeah, Republicans are just going to appeal this ruling. They can’t, I mean they can but it’s not going
to do them any good. The Supreme Court actually already ruled that,
hey yeah, federal courts, we really have no say in uh, you know, district drawing here. That’s a thing that state courts have to decide
and, oops, this was a state court and the supreme court already said that they’re the
law of the land when it comes to districting. So these Republicans are forced to redraw
their districts within the next two weeks and resubmit them because they can’t use their
disgusting maps in 2020. Obviously this is good because North Carolina
is shifting. North Carolina is no longer seen as a solidly
Red Republican stronghold. The demographics of the state are changing
and they’re changing in a way that doesn’t benefit Republicans. And that is why Republicans are trying to
Gerrymander the hell out of all the districts because they know if it was a fair election,
they’d be gone. And that’s the problem because it’s not just
North Carolina. We’ve seen it in Pennsylvania, in Ohio. We see it in Texas. Have you taken a look at Dan Crenshaw’s district? I, I hope we have a picture of this to put
up because Dan Crenshaw’s district looks like a fricking boomerang. There’s nothing straight about it. It’s just the weirdest little thing. And they did that. They carved out that little niche for him
so that he could be elected. If we had honest maps down there in the state
of Texas, Dan Crenshaw wouldn’t exist. Well mean technically, obviously he would
exist as a human being. He wouldn’t exist as a law maker though. And the same goes for lots of Republicans
sitting in the House of Representatives today and in their own state houses, they wouldn’t
be there if it weren’t for gerrymandering. This country would be a lot different today
if it weren’t for Republican gerrymandering. And I know in the past Democrats have done
it too, but they’ve lost power for so long, been without power for so long. They haven’t even had the chance to Gerrymander
anything in about 20 years. So yeah, right now it is all of the Republicans
who are doing this. Eventually the power will shift and I’m sure,
and you know, at some point next decade or two, we’re going to have to sit here and talk
about Demi, uh, Democrats Gerrymandering, but they’re not the ones who are doing it
right now. So that’s why we’re talking about the Republicans,
because they know their party is shrinking, they know their bases dying off, and they
know they’re not attracting any new young people. So the only way they can keep their power
is to just continue drawing these oddly shaped districts that luckily keep getting struck
down by the courts.

  1. Farron, Crenshaw''s district does not look like a boomerang, it looks like a sickle. Now we need to find the district that looks like a hammer.

  2. There needs to be independent observer's to ensure free and fair elections this is just unethical, immoral and criminal intent

  3. The thugs are lucky the judge gave them 2 weeks. Before mid terms, judge ruled redraw them immediately and they got away with saying, "2 months isn't enough time to re draw maps". Now all the judges know that the maps were redrawn in advance and in a folder, in the courtroom. So 2 weeks is a gift.

  4. The TEXAS ELEVEN were a group of Texas Senate Democrats who fled Texas for Albuquerque, New Mexico for 46 days in 2003 aimed at preventing the passage of controversial redistricting legislation that was intended to benefit Texas Republicans.

    A group of Texas House representatives, dubbed the Killer Ds, had fled the state for neighboring Oklahoma earlier that same summer for the same reason. However, the
    quorum-busting tactic was ineffective as the redistricting plan was
    later passed.

    U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, then a powerful figure in Texas politics, advocated arresting the Texas Eleven, telling reporters that he supported using FBI agents or U.S. Marshals to arrest the runaway Democrats and bring them back to Austin, asserting that redistricting is a matter of federal concern.

  5. Electoral college and
    Gerrymandering – tools for evil men to do evil things! They made the rules then have told us all to ear it! To bad! That "the rule"! You can't change it! Bull crap!! We're not children! That's not any different than being told to mind adults and then the adult molest you! They are bad laws and we need to abolish them!

  6. That means nothing,nothing will not change the judicial system means nothing to the GOP๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฎ๐Ÿคฎ๐Ÿคฎ๐Ÿฅบ๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿฟ๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿฅถ๐Ÿฅถ๐Ÿ’ฉ๐Ÿ’ฉ

  7. Hey liar the Corrupt Democrats in Congress will never be in POWER EVER AGAIN SHORTLY.VOTER ID IS COMING AND OUR 2020 ELECTION IS SAFEGUARDED FROM DEMOCRAT VOTER FRAUD.like Q and Trump said that those who SCREAM the LOUDEST HAVE THE MOST TO LOSE.U LOSE AND THEY ,FAKE LYING NEWS MEDIA LOSE EVERYTHING SOON.BELIEVE THAT

  8. That is why Trump won besides the Russians involvement. Gerrymandering should no longer be allowed to be a practice in this country.

  9. Rape-publicans always delusional that there cheating ways wont get caught. Racist piece of shit coward bedsheets wearing assclowns brainwashed zombie clones trump supporters are cheaters and murderers. Case in point. Texas. Pittsburgh. Charlottesville and the list goes om.

  12. Scot Walker was also court ordered to change the gerrymandering, in Wisconsin, but did he do it? NO!!! Thanks God, he lost anyway. Hopefully, Tony Evers does fix out gerrymandering issue.

  13. Job sir I really do respect you in and it's the work you do that's just wonderful what just happened with the judges in going against gerrymandering from the GOP that's just disgusting corrupt way the dese people are trying to take over our rights and civil liberties was just such a disgusting situation we're in right now this man from I will bring down this whole f**** country just so he will even made from being prosecuted and his family being bankrupt Hebron Hill banquet this country just for his own f**** selfish way God bless you for all the work you do you're great I love you so much and I see it every day and you one of so you can I'm going to be one of your subscribers very soon

  14. What did you expect from the State republicans in North Carolina, where they can't seem to win an election race unless it is fully rigged in their favor? As ReScrubs don't seem to believe in facts, figures, truth, morality or ethics when it comes to politics and there are many in the GoP state parties that will claim that "but the Democrats" have done this also, but seem to forget that in the last 20 years or so it has been the ReScrublicans who have worked overtime to gerrymander voting districts, restrict voting rights and even try to purge voting rolls in order to gain an unfair advantage and now they are being forced by State courts to unrig the elections and play by the rules or face sanctions. It's time to push for "Congressional Term limits" and past time to put an end to "career politicians" in order to bring some sanity back to American politics and to reject the "Political donor doctrine" of Big Money, buying votes and bribing politicians and once and for all getting back to grass-roots politics! remember DUMP TRUMP 2020, end the spastic nightmare of Trump feeding at the public tax troughs, and enriching himself at our expense!

  15. Trump is just delaying the inevitable with these law suits delaying congress from investigating obstruction of justice as per Mueller. Courts are slow but they are effective

  16. Neither party should have ANY say whatsoever in how electoral maps are drawn up, or else you'd have the Democrats redrawing the boundaries in their own favour. Such tasks as drawing electoral boundaries should be determined by an independent Electoral Commission, as it is here in Australia. A lesson bitterly learned after a Queensland premier, Joh Bjelke-Petersen blatantly gerrymandered the electoral boundaries in his state to unfairly favour his own (so-called)National Party. Bjelke-Petersen is now dead, and GOOD RIDDANCE!

  17. The US is so backward in this regard. No other self-respecting democracy that uses this electoral system (like the UK, Canada, and Australia's House of Representatives and state houses) lets elected officials anywhere near the districting process.

    Electoral constituency boundaries there are set by independent commissions (often chaired by retired judges who are never partisan hacks) and operate under mandates that require boundaries to reflect administrative (e.g. municipal) borders and natural borders such as rivers and the like as much as possible.

    That US states continue to be able to play these games is absolutely revolting and is one of the (many) reasons most of us outside the US view your country as at best a partial democracy.

    BTW, why on earth are Congressional boundaries set by State legislatures? At the very least, Congress should be able to set the rules and procedures for determining Congressional district boundaries to ensure they are all done on the same basis (i.e. in the interests of basic fairness). Perhaps this is one of the political (if not constitutional) reforms the post-Trump Congress should explore when the time comes to clean up today's reeking swamp…

  18. They just cannot so freaking cheating to win.. It's so trifling.. They just cannot help but want power and not care about WE THE PEOPLE..

  19. And again the shameless truth bubbels up from the swamp. When are we getting tired enough from the stench to do something about it?

  20. About time and these incompetent,ignorant Republicans still think in their wildest dreams its Dems fault. How convenient to just act more asinine then they already are!!

  21. IF THESE ELECTED CONGRESSPEOPLE HAD TO LIVE ON THEIR SALERIES FROM THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT . . . AND LOBBYISM AND CORPERATE PAYOLLA WERE STRICTLY CONTROLLED, WOULD THESE SAME PEOPLE BECOME SO DESPERATE . . . AS TO BREAK LAWS TO STAY IN OFFICE ? WOULDN'T TERM LIMITS STOP ALOT OF THIS CORRUPTION WE ARE NOW INDURING ? GET WITH IT PEOPLE !!! IT'S VERY SIMPLE, VOTE FOR THOSE WHO WOULD CAMPAIGN HONESTLY, AND SERVE THE NATION WITH INTEGRITY . . . OR, VOTE THEM OUT. period

  22. The GOP know the only way they can survive is by cheating. They are dying out and will do ANYTHING to hold on. Maybe just govern honestly and for the people would work better? LOL

  23. We should use a computer to make districts as close to square as possible. We should also make districts represent a specific number of people, adding seats when the population go up. Needs to be at the state and federal levels.

  24. ๐Ÿ” Republicans are the ones that commit the real voter fraud by gerrymandering and they have cheated in elections in Texas and in Florida and others

  25. What would the actual consequences be for the people to ignore the court in this case? I can easily see the Republicans just pissing on the ruling and going "Yeah, right!". What tangible recourse is actually available?

  26. Do you think that will stop the crooked Republicans they will find a way to change the judges or the court or something to circumvent the system.

  27. People are getting sick of racism, stupidity, lies, bigotry, and highway republican robbery. What's wrong with doing things the right way. Vote Bernie.

  28. OK, just to solve problems with Koch voting machines. Is there some new god result about distant hacking those machines? Last time best result was 10 minutes for 11-year kid?
    How to get 1000 votes for republican in results, when they had only 100 votes.

  29. it's about time the Republicans in my state of NC get put on blast by the courts can't believe it took this long better late then never I guess

  30. Democrats don't have to gerrymander to win! Once they're allowed to draw the maps, they just have to draw them normally and they will win. The only thing keeping Republicans in the game is their next level gerrymandering; normal maps would have Democrats winning everywhere.

  31. Even the court recognized the evil, deceitful, corruptive, and insulting objective behind these redistricting practices from Republicans. We are no longer stupid. Republicans only care about their pockets and not about following laws and winning fairly.

  32. Give the GOP NO QUARTER to the GOP from now on…….take not Orange prisoners
    Led Zeppelin https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tFZy4ot2O2g

  33. LOL! We worry about the Russians interfering with our elections! If GOP gerrymandering political maps and districts for their favor what else have they done. GOP have also rigged the voting machines but want to make sure they win no matter what!

  34. .01 I say all these videos are the same mentally ill ilk.the IN crowd.%100 corrupt and lost in there own construct.nothing changes since that year:1984.
    Mark of the beast

  35. Great news! Everyone of us must continue to stay vigilant to all the cheating ways of the GOP, I call
    Repulsican'ts!
    Look at history, and all of their finger pointing accusations, are nothing but a trick to divert attention from all the illicit things they do to hold on to power.
    Ironically, not one has ever thought to producing legislation that could help people! If they would only do the work they were Elected to do, they would something of substance to point to, and give reason for their being chosen to represent their Constituents.
    The Repulsican't way is to do nothing, and to campaign continuously, in order to be re-elected. Trump had his first rally in February of 2017, and Never has stopped to do his job. Sleeping in, junkets to play golf at Mar A Lago
    but he has only spent $200,000,000 just to play golf, so the "Conservative" Repulsican'ts have never even mentioned this.
    Please vote blue, whatever you do!

  36. I GOT E. DOLE OUT AND A DEMOCRAT IN. NOW THERE'S A REPUBLICAN BACK IN. I LEAVE NC AND NOW THERE'S A REPUBLICAN BACK IN.
    SHAME.
    AND IN ALL HONESTY, I NEVER ACTUALLY REALIZED JUST HOW POWERFUL THE TRUTH FROM ONE DEDICATED AMERICAN CITIZEN COULD IMPACT SO MUCH ON SUCH A LARGE SCALE. BUT THAT IS NOT THE ONLY THING I'VE DONE.
    I JUST DON'T TAKE PUBLIC CREDIT BECAUSE I BELIEVE THAT ALL AMERICANS CAN MAKE A POSITIVE DIFFERENCE, IF THEY ONLY TRIED. THAT ATTITUDE IS THANKS TO MY DAD WHO NEVER LET HIS 3 DAUGHTERS SAY "I CAN'T".
    HE TAUGHT ME, THE OLDEST TO ASK MYSELF "HOW?"
    I ATTRIBUTE ALL OF MY ACCOMPLISHMENTS TO MY DAD'S ATTITUDE OF NEVER ACCEPTING THE "I CAN'T" ATTITUDE FROM ANY OF HIS 3 DAUGHTERS.
    I JUST WISH I COULD SAY THAT MY 2 YOUNGER SISTERS ACCOMPLISHED ALL THAT I HAVE, BUT I AM THE OLDEST SO THAT COULD HAVE SOMETHING TO DO WITH MY ATTITUDE.
    I HOPE THAT YOU CAN ALSO REPORT ON THE PEOPLE WHO STAND UP TO TRAITOR 45.
    KEEP UP THE GREAT REPORTING.

  37. Ya, just last night a Republican won in the 9th district in NC but he barely won. If it wasn't for gerrymandering the Democrat would have won but we have next year.
