(Gateway Pundit) – Next Tuesday is a critical primary election to determine a State Supreme Court Justice in Wisconsin. The Wisconsin Democrats are hoping to attempt a silent coup of the state courts.
If successful, this will firm up their plans to seize control over the court over the next decade with national consequences for this laboratory of leftist judicial tyranny.
The Wisconsin Supreme Court primary election on Tuesday, February 18, decides which two of three candidates will be on the general ballot for a ten-year term. The court currently has a 5-2 conservative majority, and what’s at stake in the near-term is who replaces Governor Scott Walker’s appointment of Daniel Kelly.
The left-controlled media have failed to alert everyday Wisconsinites about the importance of Tuesday’s election, and many conservatives may stay home without realizing their state is about to be overtaken by a plan for a Marxist judiciary.
Kelly, appointed by Governor Walker in 2016 and considered to be a conservative, replaced David Prosser. Placing Justice Kelly on the Supreme Court was perhaps the most consequential thing Governor Walker did to assure a conservative majority on the bench.

Kelly faces two teachers union-supported “progressives” who, along with those arranging this setup behind the scenes, are trying to quietly push Kelly off the ballot and reduce the court’s conservative majority.
The consequences are grave for Wisconsin and for the nation if Kelly does not proceed through this primary election and win the general in April 2020. Wisconsin has already been a choice location for the left to experiment with a national strategy to chill noncompliant everyday citizens’ free speech through their control of state courts.
Wisconsin’s courts were the means through which a national push to terrorize conservatives came to fruition in the John Doe investigations, which were described as “the most tumultuous political events in Wisconsin in generations—perhaps in history.” In the John Doe investigations, retribution against Republican Governor Scott Walker was exacted by leftist operatives in the state government against ordinary Wisconsin citizens.
It was the Wisconsin Supreme Court that halted the unconstitutional persecutions of conservatives in a 2015 4-2 decision. The court declared the First Amendment rights of the victims had been violated.
With the 2018 election of far-left zealot and former teacher Governor Tony Evers, the left’s appetite to return to such political warfare through the courts has been whetted anew.
