Once again, we see that Democrats don’t care about laws, traditions, or the U.S. or state constitutions as Illinois Democrats now try to rewrite rules to stop their own citizens from suing the legislature and the state’s Democrat governor over the hardcore — usually illegal — laws they are passing.
The single party-rule state that has had no real Republican Party for more than 20 years is filled to the brim with lunatic, leftist activists posing as “lawmakers.” And nearly every day they are passing “laws” that constantly upend the American way in order to instill a radical, left-wing regime in the state.
But many citizens who are sick and tired of their lives being destroyed by the illicit rules the far left legislature imposes on them have taken to the courts to stop some of the more outrageous attacks on their freedoms.
Now Illinois Senate President Don Harmon — one of the few high-ranking Democrats that has been able to stay out of jail — is trying to pass new legislation to stop the peasants from using the court to stop his hardcore, anti-American agenda.
Per the Cook County Record:
Friday, May 19, the Illinois State Senate approved legislation introduced by powerful Senate President Don Harmon, D-Oak Park, that would rewrite the rules on where Illinois residents are allowed to file lawsuits challenging the constitutionality of state laws or seeking court orders blocking state officials from enforcing such laws or taking constitutionally questionable actions.

To this point, Illinoisans who believe Illinois lawmakers or other officials have passed laws or taken actions that violate the state constitution or their constitutional rights have been authorized to file such challenges in any court in any of the state’s 25 judicial circuits, covering the state’s 102 counties. Such courts are known as courts of general jurisdiction, meaning they are authorized to consider legal disputes involving any subjects not specifically reserved for the Illinois Supreme Court.
But under the legislation, docketed as amendments to a bill known as House Bill 3062, the Democratic supermajority in the Illinois General Assembly could make 23 of those circuit courts off limits for lawsuits challenging the constitutionality of Illinois laws or actions taken by Illinois state officials.
Instead, such lawsuits could only be brought in Cook County or Sangamon County courts.
Democrats hate it when citizens try to stand up for themselves.
Democrats hate America.
AND their citizens.
