The Republican speaker of North Carolina’s state House has petitioned the Supreme Court to hear the case of Moore v. Harper.

He is challenging the State Supreme Court’s decision to reject the congressional maps, drawn by the legislature and replace it with their own map. However, the implications of this case go far beyond the boundaries of Congress.

If leftist judges and the executive branch can override the state legislature’s ability to write election laws will be determined by this case.

The timing is critical because the decision, which typically would be made by next June, could be made by the fall if it affects the midterm elections and there is no option to appeal after the election even if the ruling next year goes in their favor.

Furthermore, it seems likely that the plaintiffs will win because the state legislature is explicitly given authority by the constitution to conduct elections.

Breitbart reported,

The U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday agreed to hear a case next term to potentially bolster the elections power of state legislatures.

The high court announced it would take up the case, known as Moore vs. Harper, brought by North Carolina’s Republican state House speaker who has challenged the state Supreme Court’s decision to dismiss the legislature’s congressional maps that would have given the party an advantage through partisan gerrymandering.

The North Carolina Supreme Court in February ruled that the legislative maps, which gave Republicans as many as 11 safe districts compared to just three for Democrats, violated the state’s constitution in a 4-3 decision.

In March, the U.S. high court turned back efforts by Republicans to nullify new congressional maps approved by state court for this year’s midterm elections.

The left is in a panic after they managed to stage a coup in 2020 by working with activist judges and dishonest state representatives like Mark Brnovich in Arizona and Brad Raffensperger in Georgia.

In Georgia, the dishonest Raffensperger and Hillary Clinton’s lawyer Marc Elias reached an agreement for the use of drop boxes despite the fact that neither the law nor the legislature had given their approval.

Even though it was against the law, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court decided that incomplete ballots could still be counted and that ballots could still be taken up to three days after the election.

The Guardian reported,

The case, Moore v Harper, involves a dispute over North Carolina’s congressional districts. At the heart of the case is what has come to be known as the independent state legislature theory (ISL) – the idea that state legislatures cannot be checked by state supreme courts when it comes to setting rules for federal elections, even if the legislature’s actions violate the state’s constitution. It’s an idea that three justices – William Rehnquist, Clarence Thomas and Antonin Scalia – mused about in Bush v Gore, but has gained little traction since. The decision to hear the case immediately raised serious alarm from experts, who say the idea is anti-democratic and is antithetical to federalism and the separation of powers at the heart of American government.

  • Incorrect useage of English words makes sentences confusing. Is “Daniel” actually a true writer?

    Quote: If leftist judges and the executive branch can override the state legislature’s ability to write election laws will be determined by this case.
    The first word in the sentence, “IF” should instead be “WHETHER”.

  • This would also vindicate Trump’s complaint that states that changed election procedures through executive or court order held improper elections.

    • If the collected evidence, by Dinesh D’Souza’s cohorts is allowed admissibility, a court will have no choice but to invalidate the election sua sponte. Being allowed to proffer the evidence will be the trick. The smell of fraud by bulk mail-in ballots scares most judges.

  • We need to minimize Negro voter fraud in every inner city precinct. Stealing elections is a threat to self government.

  • Something has got to be done with those Communist Democrats, their going full speed to change every states election laws in favor of the Communist Democrats no matter if the turn out would be in favor of the Republicans.! They have committed numerous federal crimes and Treason of the United States Constitution.
    We The People need to start organizing to remove them from their corrupt office by force if necessary.!

  • Wonder if the ballot harvesting, proven beyond any legal sufficiency required, that Stacey Abrams’ organization (non-profit Happy Faces) paid hundreds of “mules” to stuff likely illegal ballots into the Georgia ballot boxes.

    • Yes, it was quite clear those mules went back to the NGOs like Stacy A. to get more ballots to put in ballot drop boxes. Why is it OK for the FBI to use the very same method of tracking J6 people, but its not reliable for Denish D to use.

  • If anyone other than the State Legislatures are granted the power to make or change election laws, it revokes the power of the MAJORITY of People, through their elected representatives, to decide how their elections will be conducted and allows tiny minorities to decide elections.

    • True, the Constitution is very clear on the subject of which branch of state government is empowered to write state election law. Anyone, individual or a non-legislative body, cicludesannot overrule the legislature. This includes the federal government.

  • No ballots taken after election day, everyone knows way in advance when election day is and there is plenty of time for all to be prompt.

  • I’ve said it before……..Democrats are the real “satanic evil” in America for the last 150 years! Slavery, blantant hypocracy, record killing of babies, record fuel prices, food shortages, men in women’s restrooms and sports, secret sex change operations on our children, militarizing and using the IRS and FBI to arrest conservatives in the middle of the night, trampling all over our 1st, 2nd, and 4th Amendments whenever they feel like it, taxes, more taxes, higher taxes, free speech censorship, spying on conservative government officials and U.S. citizens, record inflation, business killing regulations, open borderes, highest crime rates/shootings in democrat run cities, Quid Pro Quo, BLM, antifa, racism, fascism, white supremacy, KKK, segregation, Jim Crow laws, dishonesty, lying, cheating, communism, and sociopathology, and don’t forget voter fraud. Did I leave anything out?

  • Constitutionally, the 3 co-equal branches of government represent the requisite checks & balances the Founders envisioned. By tradition and complacency over time, each individual branch has begun to encroach on the others, unconstitutionally, and many have been complicit in the overreaching. Activist Judges & Justices often attempt to exert more authority than given by the Constitution. Thankfully, we presently have a conservative majority at SCOTUS. 🎚️🗽🚂⚓🇺🇲

  • Anything and everything associated with that “pesky” Constitution drives DemoSocialists into a foaming frenzy.
