DOJ Sues Texas Over GOP’s Latest Redistricting Maps

There will undoubtedly be plenty of Republican lawmakers, in Texas and beyond, who will soon be taking aim at this grand overreach.

Texas lawmakers have once again found themselves in the crosshairs of the federal government this week, and it’s reigniting a longstanding argument about states’ rights.

The latest affront to the sovereignty of the Lone Star State comes after local leaders approved a broad redistricting map for upcoming elections.

The Justice Department filed a lawsuit Monday challenging legislative maps adopted by Texas Republicans in recent weeks that it says fail to recognize growth in the Latino population and discriminate against Black voters.

The lawsuit alleges that the redistricting plan drawn by Texas lawmakers violates the Voting Rights Act.

The Justice Department did not mince their words.

“The complaint we filed today alleges that Texas has violated Section Two by creating redistricting plans that deny or bridge the rights of Latino and Black voters to vote on account of their race, color or membership in a language-minority group,” Attorney General Merrick Garland said at a news conference.

The lawsuit targets both the US congressional map drawn for the next decade of elections and the plan for the state House.

“The Legislature refused to recognize the State’s growing minority electorate,” the lawsuit states. “Although the Texas Congressional delegation expanded from 36 to 38 seats, Texas designed the two new seats to have Anglo voting majorities.”

There will undoubtedly be plenty of Republican lawmakers, in Texas and beyond, who will soon be taking aim at this grand overreach.

Coca-Cola Blasted By Billboards Over Support of ‘Genocide’ Olympics

This is BRUTAL!

Published

on

In just a few weeks’ time, much of the world will have their eyes on Beijing.  No, not on account of the misinformation that they spread about the severity of the COVID-19 pandemic, nor their forceful takeover of Tibet.  We won’t be keeping a keen eye on the CCP over the Hong Kong hostage situation, or their repeated advances on the sovereign nation of Taiwan.

Nope.  We’ll all be watching young men and women cruising around on ice skates and skis, as opposed to having a serious conversation about the literal genocide that China has been involved in over the course of the last several years.

Now, international mega-corporation Coca-Cola is taking some serious heat over their continued support of what’s become known as “The Genocide Olympics”.

A conservative media watchdog group launched a billboard campaign Thursday outside Coca-Cola’s Atlanta headquarters, calling on the soft drink giant to explain its sponsorship of the upcoming Beijing Olympics in light of China‘s human rights abuses.

Accuracy in Media accused the company of hypocrisy with a billboard displaying the phrase: “Why does Coke support genocide?”

And it’s not as though Coke remains apolitical…not in the least.

The group notes that Coke condemned its home state of Georgia for implementing a new Republican-authored voting law and supported Major League Baseball’s decision to strip Atlanta of the All-Star Game because of the law — yet the multinational remains a major sponsor of the Beijing Games, “despite the fact that China is the greatest source of evil in our world.”

The billboards were soon making the rounds on social media.

As of this writing, there has been no official response from Coca-Cola.
