Supreme Court: Bad Day for Everyone,
Especially Roberts

Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 6/27/2019 3:13:28 PM

Today the Supreme Court issued two major opinions with profound implications for American politics. It blocked, for now, adding a question about citizenship on the 2020 Census in Department of Commerce vs. New York. In Rucho v. Common Cause, the Court permanently killed off allowing federal courts to decide that a legislative map gave one side too much of a partisan advantage.It was a bad day for the right, a very bad day for the left, and an extremely bad day for Chief Justice John Roberts. First, the very bad day for the left. For years, the institutional left has been trying to strip state legislatures of power

Another gift from the Bush family. Two questions. 1. Why would an executive decision like what questions are included in the Census be subject to SC review? 2. Why did Thomas and Alito concur?

I just don't understand why asking someone if they are a citizen on the census needs to go to the Supreme Court. This is a common sense question. What I really don't understand is why anyone who is supposed to be conservative would oppose the question.

Apparently the census question isn't completely dead in the future. But it is defunct for the 2020 election. That's ok. We can survive that wait. I believe the gerrymandering decision is far more important to conservatives, our party and the protection of our votes from the George Soroses of the political world. This is better than a half-loaf day. It's about a three-quarter loaf day.

The SC is supposed to decide things based on the law and the Constitution - not on what seems "reasonable", which is always a matter of individual opinion.

Well Roberts did define Obamacare as a tax to justify his support for Obama. Didn’t he say when Kavanaugh was confirmed he would not allow the S.C. to go conservative? Roberts is the biggest disappointment in DC. Isn’t it odd the libs on the court never bend but the so called conservatives bend & twist like a pretzel.

More emanations and penumbra for mind-reading Roberts, who is the only person alive who has been able to discern the term "motivation" in the relevant law. Time for another fine/tax: when neither can be declared legitimate, we'll just make it a quantum law where it can be both at the same time.

Roberts doesn't think there are Obama judges because he is one, just like CNN and MSNBC don't think the media is biased, because they are. I hope the Republicans can gerrymander out, Sheila Jackson-Lee, Mad Maxine, Schiffhead and Swalwell, for a start.

If the citizenship question on the census is constitutional and lawful, why would the Supreme Court want to delve into the preliminary deliberative process and fact finding that the Secretary of Commerce used to get that question on the 2020 Census? Since the court has decided that the question being on the Census is constitutional and legal today’s court decision that could delay that question until the 2030 Census really serves no useful purpose but to clog up the federal courts that will now have to hold additional hearings on the matter, which in the end will end up on the Census either in 2020 or 2030.

#10 has it right. The reason for a Census is to properly apportion members of the House of Representatives. Representatives of whom? In school I learned that the House represents Citizens. What did I miss? Our Social Contract is between Citizens, who consent to be governed by their elected officials, That, at least, constituted the notion of a Republic. Instead of polling everybody on every issue, responsible individuals act in concert to implement the will of the Citizens. That is how I read Federalist. To hold otherwise is to fundamentally change the Contract. Are we now to be governed by occupants, regardless of their loyalty? Is knowledge of our founding Principles no longer needed? Justice Roberts appears to rewrite the Compact in order to please the Democrats. We are apparently to be governed by illegal immigrants who do not respect our laws. I guess they will elect representatives who will implement new laws and make Marx our official God.

All kinds of Democrats said it, so why not their allies in the media?I’m speaking here of the media chorus that insisted — insisted — that what President Trump, in an Oval Office address to the nation in January called a “humanitarian crisis” at the border — was in fact nothing more than a “manufactured crisis.”It’s one thing for partisan Democrats to make such a preposterous charge thinking they can get away with it. They are in this case, after all, seriously Trump-hating partisans. But the media? Those who insist that an “Apple is not a Banana” because “Facts Come First.”

I know. I know. Polls mean nothing, and we all know then-candidate Donald Trump was down big-time in almost every one back in 2016 for, well, pretty much the entire cycle until the actual election results proved the polls to be a giant sack of you know what. This time around, however, with the president supposedly polling double digits behind everyone both dead and alive with a D beside their name, it’s hard not to get a little discouraged if you’re all in for four more years of MAGA.There are several reasons for this, of course.

In 1993, Harvard Law School offered Warren a highly coveted tenured professor job. The record is clear as to how she obtained the offer -- Harvard had been the subject of a discrimination lawsuit at the time regarding its hiring practices, and the school was openly trying to hire women and people of color at its law school.

Paul has been on top of the apparent Kamala Harris fraud. Harris, attacking Joe Biden for having collaborated with segregationist Democrats in the Senate to oppose school busing, claimed that she was bused as a kid, in Berkeley, and it did her a world of good. (Snip) Given the demography and geography of Berkeley at the time–she was 10 years old in 1974–it seems highly unlikely that Harris, the daughter of two PhDs, one from India and one from Jamaica, was bused into a white school so she could escape the ghetto and mix with the children of educated parents.

Our enemy is the gun manufacturers, not the NRA." While prototypes of guns with integrated biometric locks exist, none are currently for sale on the American market.
