And this EO gets challenged in court in 1..2..3.. The Left will of course argue protesters rights are being unlawfully infringed if they are not afforded to opportunity to destroy national monuments and statues. Roll Eyes I just wish some of these 'protestors' would get a good ole fashioned ass whipping for touching a statue, before a trip to jail.


The left has some favorite statues also. However, never would they defend a protestors right to destroy one of them.

Again...I have to wonder. I thought racism ended the day Nikki Haley made a YUUUGE display and ordered the removal of the Confederate Flag from the State Capital. I remember there was a ceremony and everything......

I don't care how, but he needs to be removed as he's no longer serving the country

The President and the Senate put him there, they can figure out how to remove him - the fact that a procedure 'doesn't exist' is just a mere technicality for someone like Roberts

... And he proves it once again today.

This is the third time this month Chief Justice Roberts has sided with the liberals of the court on a hot-button social issue (protecting DREAMers, upholding LGBTQ employment rights, and now striking down state abortion restrictions).

In response to Chief Justice John Roberts siding with liberal judges on the Louisiana abortion ruling - Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio tweets: "What’s next, Chief Justice Roberts? Our Second Amendment rights?"

Roberts flipped.

He was on the opposite side of this same question in a 2016 case:

Roberts had been on the dissenting side of the 2016 case Whole Woman's Health v. Hellerstedt. While the law in contention in the case June v. Gee was nearly identical to the Texas law, Roberts based his decision on court precedent rather than his own opinion of the law.

While he maintained that he still disagrees with the Texas law and the court's 2016 ruling, he wrote Monday that"the question today" is on "whether to adhere to [the 2016 case] in deciding the present case."

The Louisiana law in dispute was similar to a Texas law requiring abortion providers to have hospital admitting privileges that was reviewed by the Supreme Court, in a different configuration of justices, in the 2016 case Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt. The Texas law then was deemed unconstitutional. The Supreme Court held that the 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling meant that the restriction placed an undue burden on women’s access to abortions.

As an aside, a "John Roberts" is listed twice in the Epstein flight logs.

Roberts is a cancer.


The law the court was deciding was nearly word-for-word a duplication of a Texas law struck down in 2016. Had the court allowed the Louisiana to stand, it would have been in direct conflict with the 2016 ruling.

Roberts essentially became the new Anthony Kennedy, the new "swing vote" of the court. Like Kennedy, who was appointed by Reagan, Roberts has quickly become the left's Fifth Vote. And like Kennedy, he has become an activist judge like the other four leftists. Roberts will never leave or be replaced soo. Ginsburg and Breyer are the keys for the near future of the court.

Yes... and Roberts was on the opposite side of this same question in the 2016 case.
He voted to overturn the Louisiana case just because of the previous decision, even though he thought it was wrong and voted to uphold the Texas law in 2016. By that logic the Dred Scott case never would have been overturned.

I'm really starting to wonder if Roberts hasn't just decided to vote to screw all of us 'and' Trump as often as possible, jurisprudence be damned. RBG has been exactly who we always thought she was her entire career. Roberts appears to be 'coming out' and showing us exactly who he's always been. The man disgusts me.

https://thehill.com/homenews/c...-over-mail-in-voting


President Trump’s reelection campaign is suing Pennsylvania's secretary of state and 67 county election boards in an effort to change how mail-in ballots are sent and counted.

The federal lawsuit was filed in Pittsburgh on Monday by the Trump campaign, the Republican National Committee, and four Pennsylvania Republican members of Congress: Glen Thompson, Mike Kelly, John Joyce and Guy Reschenthaler.

“To be free and fair, elections must be transparent and verifiable. Yet, Defendants have inexplicably chosen a path that jeopardizes election security and will lead -and has already led - to the disenfranchisement of voters, questions about the accuracy of election results, and ultimately chaos heading into the upcoming November 3, 2020 General Election,” the lawsuit reads.

The suit claims the issues are a “direct result” of Pennsylvania’s “hazardous hurried, and illegal implementation of unmonitored mail-in voting” that the Trump campaign and Republicans claim can lead to fraud and “chaos.”

A spokesperson for Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar, a Democrat, said the department will not comment on pending litigation.

Pennsylvania passed a law last year that expanded mail-in ballot voting options to allow anyone to vote by mail without providing a reason.

The lawsuit argues, however, that during the June 2 primary voters used procedures that were not outlined in the new law including submitting absentee and mail-in ballots at locations such as shopping centers, parking lots, fairgrounds, parks, retirement homes, college campuses, fire halls, municipal government buildings and elected official’s offices.

The suit also says that this was done with “the knowledge, consent and/or approval of the Secretary of the Commonwealth.”

The Trump campaign and Republicans are seeking an order that would prohibit Pennsylvania from permitting absentee and mail-in ballots to be returned to locations other than the offices of the county boards of elections.

They’re also seeking an order that bars the county election board from counting absentee and mail-in ballots that “lack a secrecy envelope” or have any text or symbols on envelopes revealing the elector's identity, party affiliation or candidate preference.

Bologna. McConnell has already stated he'll ram a nomination through, as well he should. If that opportunity presents itself and Repubs don't take advantage of it, they're actually dumber than I think they are.

IANAL and this is a serious question: Are previous SCOTUS decisions inviolate? Even if it is pretty clear that a prior court was wrong, are we stuck with whatever they ruled forever?
