WI liberal Justice calls election litigants ‘un-American’!

Justice Karofsky plays race card

Funny thing about conservative jurists: they read the law and apply the constitution as it was written, not how they wish it written. Justices Gorsuch, Barrett, and Kavanaugh proved it Friday 12-11-20 in turning down the Texas challenge to the results in four states, including ours. At the state level, so has Justice Brian Hagedorn proven his fair and impartial jurisprudence.

Then there are liberal activists posing as judges, like Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Jill Karofsky. Her performance Saturday 12-12-20 during oral argument in Donald J. Trump v. Joseph R. Biden was disgraceful. It reminds us of Chuck Chvala at his partisan worst — only not as intelligent.

“This lawsuit, Mr. Troupis, smacks of racism, and I do not know how you can come before this court and possibly ask us for a remedy that is unheard of in American history,” Karofsky said. “This is not normal.”

Karofsky could not understand why the plaintiff, President Trump, would challenge the conduct of Wisconsin’s election after the election. Trump attorney Jim Troupis patiently explained that there would have been no injury to his client before an election — nor any after a flawed election had he prevailed. (In any event, some of those last-minute changes WERE challenged.)

Trump’s case in Wisconsin (very much simplified) was that black letter law on how to conduct an election was tucked and trimmed pretty much on the fly, with the Covid pandemic as the rationale. For instance, many absentee ballots lacked the obligatory proof of identity under the rubric of “indefinitely confined.” Allowing votes to be harvested in “Democracy in the Park” locales early, before the statutory early voting period began or at  the clerk’s office where there is presumed to be more security.

“The statues are in place because if you do not follow these provisions there is [the presumption of] fraud,” Troupis explained.

Poor judicial temperament

Karofsky went well beyond jurisprudential skepticism into partisan polemic. Toward the end of one hour and 37 minutes of oral arguments, she launched into a tirade more suited to a rabble-rousing politician than a supreme court jurist. Our transcription: 

I cannot believe you are going to accuse our fellow Wisconsinites of engaging in fraud in this election. The people of Wisconsin should be thanked for exercising their civic duty … to vote. … We should be thanking  them, we should be thanking the election workers, the poll workers, and the canvass workers and local officials who soldiered on during a global pandemic. In this state we accept the will of the voters and they spoke. For you to come forward today and throw out allegations of fraud with zero evidence! [she trailed off.]

What is America? … It is not governance from a king. You want us to overturn this election so that your king can stay in power and that is so un-American.  For you to say anyone in Wisconsin engaged in fraud … for you to perpetuate that fallacy … in what has been called the most significant election in our life time, is nothing short of shameful.

Troupis countered: “I believe this country was founded on the principle of the rule of law. When we forget the rule of law when we forget to enforce mandatory statutes we have lost our freedom.”

    Maybe her comment was based on the fact that only Dane Co. and Milw. Co .were targeted. The home of many Dems and Minorities. You got a problem with Wis.; then count all of the state. Cherry-picking counties is pure BS. Ashland is home to Northland Collage. Liberal with plenty of minorities. Why not count those votes over and over and over. After all these failed attempts at trying to prove fraud I can see these judges getting pi$$ed off. Time to sanction Rudy and his clown show?

      Actually, the main argument by the prosecution – the illegal Voting in the Park, did not occur statewide. THAT campaign was geared towards cities with the highest number of minorities. The campaign itself was illegal and racist!!

        Voting In The Park was organized by and paid for by the Biden people. The advertisements I heard for it on radio beforehand specifically stated that it was It was an event pushed and staffed by City officials and volunteers they had trained. But, then Biden’s voice came on at the end of the commercial said it was paid for and approved by him. I know for a fact from young people who participated in it that it was viewed by them as a Biden event. That’s a bit sleazy by the City to push it as a partisan public event. But, it’s OK to cheat if its our side, right–by any means necessary?

    Personalize it, ignore inconvenient truths, blame the opposition and accuse us of doing what they’re doing. If all else fails call everyone a racist and run away.

    I listened to the arguments and questioning on Saturday. “Certain” judges really stunned me by how openly biased and hostile they are to Trump’s people. It violates the code of judicial ethics. They sounded more like partisans on the attack rather than objective jurists. Who can (or who “will”) call out and discipline the Supremes? Certainly not the governor, not the legislature of squishes, not the press. This is very sad and very frightening.

    There are men who are as ignert as judge jill (lower case since she deserves no respect). However, judge jill is a manifestation of the co-joined rise of “emotional reasoning” and the axiom that women who attain positions of power, necessarily exhibit wisdom or logic.

    Emotion reasoning is a non-sequitur. judge jill’s display reminds me of 3rd-graders who “know” more than their parents; her knowledge mirrors that of congressman Hank Johnson (Guam is not about to tip-over).

    Logic and actions of the lynch mobs are democratic, but the victim is not necessarily guilty.

      judge jill, a Madison liberal from central casting, can only squawk “Racism!” like a demented parrot because that’s what Madison liberals substitute for rational argument. And “emotional reasoning,” like systemic racism or restorative justice, is a made-up, harebrained piece of claptrap that leftists use to disguise their utter intellectual vacuity.

    Well aren’t they? Especially in the case brought by the indicted Texas AG. Seeking to overturn the constitutionally proclaimed will of the people, and overturn a legal, secure election is indeed not only unamerican, it’s treason. Of course the namby-pamby Dems are only calling for the 126 congressman and 1 senator to not be seated, i say as we are in a never ending “war on terror” , let the penalty for treason in time of war playout.

    So let me get this straight.

    So according to judge jill, it is because Dane and Milwaukee Counties have a higher representation of African Americans than the rest of the state, that Judge Jim Troupis, and yes he has been a Judge, is racist for pointing out that both Dane and Milwaukee Counties and in particular the City of Madison and Milwaukee had a higher number of indefinitely confined voters resulting in more absentee ballots and that Madison allowed 2 “Democracy in the Park Days”.

    Consider this that comes from the Wisconsin Department of Health Services
    https://www.dhs.wisconsin.gov/minority-health/population/afriamer-pop.htm

    “Nearly 90 percent of Wisconsin’s African American population lives in the following six counties, all of which are located in Southeastern or Southern Wisconsin: Milwaukee, Dane, Racine, Kenosha, Rock, and Waukesha. When looking at African Americans as a percent of the total county population, Milwaukee County tops this list, with 25.6 percent.”

    One might ask the question: Why was it not racist for the Mayors of other large communities on the list with a higher representation of African Americans not to have “Democracy in the Park Days” as well?

    Since Milwaukee County has a higher representation of African Americans, was it was racist of the Mayor of Milwaukee not to have his own “Democracy in the Park Days”? The exact same could be said for the Mayor of Racine and the Mayor of Kenosha all of which are DEMOCRATS!

    Just wondering.

    And according to her logic, Menominee County, which has the highest minority population of 88.4% should have allowed for voters to say they were indefinitely confined so they could have a higher number of absentee ballots and they should have also had their own “Democracy in the Park Days”. Which they did not!
