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?

NO. Just as Congress is not bound by the acts of a prior Congress, the Court is NOT bound by the decisions of a prior Court. Here are two of the more famous reversals:

Dred Scott v. Sandford, 60 U.S. (19 How.) 393 (1857), was a landmark decision of the US Supreme Court in which the Court held that the US Constitution was not meant to include American citizenship for black people, regardless of whether they were enslaved or free, and so the rights and privileges that the Constitution confers upon American citizens could not apply to them.

Plessy v. Ferguson, 163 U.S. 537 (1896), was a landmark decision of the U.S. Supreme Court that upheld the constitutionality of racial segregation laws for public facilities as long as the segregated facilities were equal in quality – a doctrine that came to be known as "separate but equal".

Roberts is just "concerned about the institution of the Court" and his reputation on the DC cocktail circuit. He is a little man without balls.



"Some things are apparent. Where government moves in, community retreats, civil society disintegrates and our ability to control our own destiny atrophies. The result is: families under siege; war in the streets; unapologetic expropriation of property; the precipitous decline of the rule of law; the rapid rise of corruption; the loss of civility and the triumph of deceit. The result is a debased, debauched culture which finds moral depravity entertaining and virtue contemptible."

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?
Ever heard of Roe Vs. Wade? IMO that is hands down the biggest failure of the SCOTUS, ever. 'Zero' constitutional standing and support. A decision pulled right out of the air and/or the justices asses. Everyone knows this decision was total bullshit, but no one has any interest in fixing it. Roe will likely never be overturned because of equal parts of the court's arrogance and cowardice.

They never quit. And so, never should we.

Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tenn has introduced a resolution to pursue impeachment probe against AG Barr.

Alleging that Barr had "undermined our judicial system and perverted the rule of law," Cohen is the latest in a batch of grandstanding Democrat lawmakers who can't seem to realize that Donald Trump won the presidency and they should move on.

Ah, the 'Chicken Man' speaketh. What a retard. Here's an idea. No one in Congress may submit a bill, resolution, or any other action if they score 80 or less on an IQ test. That would leave Cohen standing on the sidelines drooling where he belongs.

Rumors Intensify That Justice Alito Is Retiring

Josh Hammer
@josh_hammer

These rumors—which we heard months ago before they initially died down—have indeed really picked up steam over the past couple of weeks.

Sam Alito is a terrific justice who would be difficult to replace, but we should all hope he makes the best decision for his family.

Robert Costa
@costareports

After reading my latest Post report, @hughhewitt tells his radio audience this morning that he hears from several leading conservatives that Justice Alito, 70, is considering retirement, and adds that he also hears the Alito family is ready to leave Washington, D.C.

Well if he retires, Trump could nominate someone with the same ideals, but 30 years younger. This would be excellent for the country overall.

Trump regrets following Kushner advice

President Trump has told people in recent days that he regrets following some of son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner's political advice including supporting criminal justice reform and will stick closer to his own instincts, three people with direct knowledge of the president's thinking tell Axios.

Behind the scenes: One person who spoke with the president interpreted his thinking this way: "No more of Jared's woke shit." Another said Trump has indicated that following Kushner's advice has harmed him politically.

Why it matters: This could be the final straw for federal police reform legislation this year, and it could usher in even more incendiary campaign tactics between now and November.

Details: The sources said the president has resolved to stick to his instincts and jettison any policies that go against them, including ambitious police reform.

...

Several conservative allies of the president have reached out to him and advised him to reduce Kushner's influence over his re-election campaign.

Yes, but: No adviser to the president has more power over the White House and the campaign than Kushner. And nobody we've spoken to suggested that fundamental dynamic will change. It's always possible that the views Trump expressed recently could just be a passing phase.

"The Geniuses," Steve Bannon used to call the very liberal New Yorkers Jared and Ivanka.

Wow. I've heard him speak a few time on TV and he seems to have a solid conservative voice. I hope he wins because he dosen't seem the type to be quiet once he is in congress.

"Former NFL Star Burgess Owens Wins Utah Congressional Primary"

"Former NFL player Burgess Owens won Utah’s Republican primary Tuesday for the U.S. House of Representatives.

Owens, who played safety in the NFL from 1973-1982 for the New York Jets and the Oakland Raiders, won the primary in Utah’s 4th Congressional district, the Associated Press reported. Owens received 43.5 percent of the vote, beating his opponent Kim Coleman by nearly 20 percent.

The Daily Caller contacted Owens about his victory to which he responded by saying: “It feels great to know that our message of unity is resonating. We have received so much support in a crowded field of popular, qualified candidates. Our plan for the general is similar, work nonstop. It’s a matter of making sure we’re working 10 times harder, in a district that was won by only 700 votes, voter contact is crucial. I am excited to get to know as many voters as I can, whether that’s at town halls, phone calls, or by knocking on their door.”

“I am so grateful for all the support we’ve received. Friends from across the country, countless hours from volunteers have united behind our message of the American Dream. We are feeling good about the results we’ve seen so far, thank you for your support everyone!,” Owens tweeted before the race was officially called.

Recently, Owens has been vocal on former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and other players who have decided to kneel during the National Anthem. Owens is also a supporter of President Donald Trump.

Owens will now be taking on Democratic Rep. Ben McAdams in November".

Effective today the manufacturing of North American products must originate in North America. No longer will Canada and Mexico be allowed to “assemble” component goods from Asia and transport them as finished North American goods into the U.S. market.

The immediate impacts from this trade-loophole closure will be felt over the next several months and years. Yes, things are rapidly about to change… and when you understand the details you also understand why the Democrats need to exploit a fictitious COVID fear to stop the explosion of U.S. economic growth that will follow.

“Today marks the beginning of a new and better chapter for trade between the United States, Mexico and Canada – just as President Trump promised he would deliver for the American people.


“From day one of his Administration, President Trump has changed the focus of America’s trade policy away from what is best for big, multi-national corporations to instead what is best for America’s workers, farmers and ranchers. That’s a monumental change. His success in creating a bipartisan consensus on this new model for trade policy — in spite of the establishment critics who said it couldn’t be done — is truly remarkable.

“The USMCA contains significant improvements and modernized approaches that will deliver more jobs, stronger worker protections, expanded market access, and greater opportunities to trade for companies large and small. We have worked closely with the governments of Mexico and Canada to ensure that the obligations and responsibilities of all three nations under the agreement have been met, and we will continue to do so to ensure the USMCA is enforced.

Previously both Canada and Mexico structured key parts of their independent trade agreements to take advantage of their unique access to the U.S. market. Mexico and Canada generate billions in economic activity through exploiting the NAFTA loophole. China, Asia (writ large), and the EU enter into trade agreements with Mexico and Canada as back-doors into the U.S. market. So long as corporations can avoid U.S. tariffs by going through Canada and Mexico they would continue to exploit this approach.

By shipping parts to Mexico and/or Canada; and by deploying satellite manufacturing and assembly facilities in Canada and/or Mexico; China, Asia and to a lesser extent EU corporations exploited a loophole. Through a process of building, assembling or manufacturing their products in Mexico/Canada those foreign corporations can skirt U.S. trade tariffs and direct U.S. trade agreements. The finished foreign products entered the U.S. under NAFTA rules.

Why deal with the U.S. when they could just deal with Mexico, and use NAFTA rules to ship their product(s) directly into the U.S. market?

This exploitative approach, a backdoor to the U.S. market, was the primary reason for massive foreign investment in Canada and Mexico; it was also the primary reason why candidate Donald Trump, now President Donald Trump, wanted to shut down that loophole and renegotiate NAFTA.

Great news sdy. These fundamental changes and improvements will have long lasting effects in the US. Bring jobs home provides income, satisfaction, and ability to purchase homes for many persons currently not able to.

Home and family stability is the best way to deal with the "woke" crowd, as they will have a smaller audience that believes their BS.
