A Surge of Justice
Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer has stepped down from the high court effective Thursday at noon. The Justice who may or not be a black 'woman" (even she doesn't know what she is) was sworn in.
Grand Decisions from the SCOTUS before he escaped!
This has vast implications to rein in numerous federal agencies that are running wild and destroying America: They can't just do what they want and spend what they want without detailed direction from the Congress.
Rights for Veterans as a protected class:
Friday, the Supremes pushed abortion restrictions back to the states by overturning Roe v. Wade and Casey v. Planned Parenthood. In many states, abortion on demand will become illegal again. In other states like Oregon, nothing changes except the political opportunity to change current laws.
Then, the U.S. Supreme Court protected citizen rights in the free exercise and free speech clauses of the First Amendment.
In Kennedy v. Bremerton School Dist., the Supremes ruled in favor of a high school football coach who had been fired for praying at mid-field following football games. His legal battle took 7 years. Being a public employee did not diminish his first amendment rights to free speech and exercise of religious beliefs.
“Held: The Free Exercise and Free Speech Clauses of the First Amendment protect an individual engaging in a personal religious observance from government reprisal; the Constitution neither mandates nor permits the government to suppress such religious expression.”
Writing for the majority, Justice Neil Gorsuch states the following:
“Respect for religious expressions is indispensable to life in a free and diverse Republic. Here, a government entity sought to punish an individual for engaging in a personal religious observance, based on a mistaken view that it has a duty to suppress religious observances even as it allows comparable secular speech. The Constitution neither mandates nor tolerates that kind of discrimination. Mr. Kennedy is entitled to summary judgment on his religious exercise and free speech claims.”

The New York state Supreme Court rules that non-citizens can not vote in local elections.
The New York City Council approved the "Our City, Our Vote" bill in December, and it became law in January. The law allowed legal residents, including those with green cards, to vote in municipal elections starting in 2023.
A group of Republican lawmakers filed suit in Staten Island Supreme Court to block the measure, which would have allowed an estimated 800,000 adults to vote for mayor, public advocate, city council and borough presidents.
The law did not allow non-citizens to vote in state or federal elections.
"Today's decision validates those of us who can read the plain English words of our state constitution and state statutes: Noncitizen voting in New York is illegal, and shame on those who thought they could skirt the law for political gain. Opposition to this measure was bipartisan and cut across countless neighborhood and ethnic lines, yet progressives chose to ignore both our constitution and public sentiment in order to suit their aims. I commend the court in recognizing reality and reminding New York's professional protestor class that the rule of law matters," said City Council minority leader Joseph Borelli.
A quarter of Americans open to taking up arms against government, poll says
Survey of 1,000 registered US voters also reveals that most Americans agree government is ‘corrupt and rigged’.
And that's just those who are willing to admit it to a complete stranger taking a poll !! REal numbers are much higher.
