Supreme Court Rules in Berger v. NAACP Case

On Thursday, the Supreme Court ruled 8-1 that Republican lawmakers in North Carolina may intervene in litigation to defend a state voter identification law.

The question, in this case, revolved around if a pair of Republican legislators in North Carolina can intervene to defend the state’s voter-ID law when the state’s Democrat attorney general is already defending the law.

The North Carolina NAACP was challenging the law, arguing it violates the Civil Rights Act as Democrat Attorney General Josh Stein sought to defend it.

Justice Sotomayer was the only one to dissent. Justice Gorsuch wrote in his opinion the state “has expressly authorized the legislative leaders to defend the State’s practical interests in litigation of this sort.”

This case, Gorsuch says, shows “how divided state governments sometimes warrant participation by multiple state officials in federal court.” The legislators, Justice Gorsuch continues, have vastly different interests to represent than the state’s attorney general.

All of these “Karen’s” in the Dem party need to realize that theirs’ is not the only opinion which needs to be heard. I am so sick and tired of the childish acts these liberals come up with. It’s way past time for voting in people who will act like adults and not spoiled brats.

Then you would unconditionally be pissed off, along with about 100 Million Trump supporters, over Grandma Piglosi, GOP traitors Cheney and “Turn on the Tears” Kinzinger .. and her “Non” insurrection Kangaroo Court.

why don’t “we” vote to leave the federal abuse we suffer under? The founders and Jesus both said to SEPARATE from them… “come out from among them, be ye separate” Are you a loyal American? are you a follower of Jesus? prove it !

Hey! Board administrator. Dial down the algorithm filters. You’ve placed my post in response to [James] – 3 days ago … in a “Waiting for approval” status.

There’s nothing untruthful, no misinformation, no verbal attack on anyone. Surely, a post which highly disputes the integrity of a partisan January 6 “Non” insurrection witch hunt, by the Democrats and (2) turn-coat Republicans, could in any way be judged as non-appropriate and in violation of your posting guidelines.

Yes, I am a commenter who will call you out on censorship.

OK … Now you’ve flagged (2) of my non-abrasive comments.
I’m beginning to see which way your slant is.
Fine !!!
For a webpage which purports to favor the 45th (and by all rights .. the still current president), One might think you would not scrutinize comments in defense of President Trump.

Four postings and you’ve flagged all of them. It’s not just the content. Now it appears you’ve arbitrarily blocked any/all postings from my registered ID.
