“Jim Eagle” has landed… with a thud. President Joe Biden famously (and considerably bizarrely) used the title “Jim Eagle” to characterize the Georgia election legislation.
It was not sufficient to name it “Jim Crow on steroids” and “sick,” President Biden wished the general public to know that the legislation was flagrantly unconstitutional. A few of us disagreed, however the view that counted was that of U.S. District Choose Steve Jones, an Obama appointee who heard the problem to the legislation. This week, Jones discovered the legislation to be totally constitutional.
After being declared the “new confederacy” and subjected to a pricey boycott, Georgians might be forgiven in the event that they view Biden’s declare as extra foul and fowl.

Given the exhausting media protection and condemnations of the legislation, one would anticipate the legion of authorized specialists out in power on a choose upholding the allegedly “fashionable Jim Crow legislation.” As an alternative, it has been crickets . . . virtually as if the sooner protection was knowingly exaggerated for public consumption.
Georgia Democratic candidate for governor Stacey Abrams tweeted “It’s Jim Crow in a swimsuit + tie.” Rep. Ro Khanna, D-Calif., referred to as the legal guidelines “anti-American, racist, and a betrayal of our Structure.” Democratic lawyer Marc Elias (who allegedly hid the Clinton campaigns funding of the notorious Steele file) mentioned in an interview that “democracy was assaulted with a pen” within the new legislation. Liberal publications like Self-importance Truthful referred to as it “a broad, profoundly undemocratic assault on voting rights.”
Now that such claims had been really subjected to judicial overview and rejected, there may be little dialogue of Jim Crow. The group that misplaced earlier than the district court docket is carefully related to Abrams, who beforehand refused to concede the election of Gov. Brian Kemp within the final election.
President Biden as soon as once more has moved on. For weeks, Biden denounced the legislation as taking us again to the segregation interval and even the Civil Warfare. But, the ruling met with a shrug from the White Home.

It’s a acquainted sample. The president has usually made sweeping authorized claims after which refused to handle the rejection of these claims.
The Georgia ruling really got here on the anniversary of one of the vital reprehensible examples.

The identical sample adopted. Whereas a few of us famous that there was no proof to assist the declare (and truly the photographer denied the allegation), the media went into the identical frenzy. Whereas promising a fast investigation, the Biden administration then gradual walked the method and lately cleared the brokers of the whipping allegation. They’ll, in fact, nonetheless be punished simply because the president promised that they might . . . for one thing.
The one factor that they won’t obtain is an apology from President Biden. The information cycle is over and they’re not related. It’s not necessary or value mentioning that Biden brazenly misrepresented the legislation with a sequence of false statements. In as we speak’s extremely protecting media, Biden can simply transfer on with out contradiction to his subsequent sensational authorized declare.

Choose Jones wrote: “the burden on voters is comparatively low… plaintiffs haven’t supplied direct proof of a voter who was unable to vote, skilled longer wait occasions, was confused about voter registration standing.” That appears a bit odd with a voter suppression legislation that led to a boycott and a presidential condemnation.
A lot for “Jim Eagle.” But, these baseless claims will solely enhance with the approaching midterm elections. Our politics have now come to resemble the “unhealthy” days described in William Shakespeare’s “Richard III” when “wrens make prey the place eagles dare not perch.”
