I knew about the fences being put up

there’s been a bunch of unsourced tweets recently being shared as fact that have been proven false, so doing what I can do to make sure that wasn’t one of them

It's OK to protest at abortion providers homes and funerals of soldiers, but not at a SCOTUS justice house??

I wonder how this Supreme Court would rule on whether Congress unconstitutionally delegated legislative power to the SEC.

Indeed. It's a 5th Circuit Court decision, but it seems right up this Supreme Court's alley.

Need to find a way for abortion to be a big money making scheme so that gorsuch and Robert will keep it legal. Maybe Amazon needs to start providing abortions.

^a border patrol agent beat the shit out of a guy with no probable cause and no warrant, trampling the guys 4th amendment rights. Later when the guy filed an administrative complaint with CBP, the border patrol agent called up his buddies at the IRS to take a “look into” the guy’s finances, trampling his 1st amendment rights.

Do we need a better example of “the deep state” attempting to destroy an average American’s life?

Which brings me to my biggest question on this case: Where the fuck are all the civil libertarians? This is literally big government wiping its ass with the bill of rights and all the libertarians are just whining about inflation and that 3d printed rifle parts are marginally more difficult to make legally. It’s a massive mistake to assume libertarians are willing to help defend the bill of rights along side liberals and leftists. They’ll be sorting through the remnants of your home after the Gestapo kicks your door in and takes you away in an unmarked van.

When their race/nation doesn't come out on top, they just shed the sheep's clothing ? overt fascism."

Quote :
"“The Constitution was interpreted as variously as the Bible,” Senator John P. Hale of New Hampshire responded. White southerners believed “the Constitution carries slavery with it,” while northerners construed the Constitution “to secure freedom.” As Hale and his contemporaries appreciated, resolving such a fundamental national disagreement could never turn on a court’s answer to which interpretation was more correct. Rather, the winning interpretation would depend on whether adherents could build sufficient political majorities to control the national government."

Quote :
"But the bills have all stalled in the Senate for two reasons that remain within its control. One, the filibuster, will be abolished as soon as 50 senators recognize that a permanently incapacitated Senate is far more destructive than an active Senate that might one day be controlled by an opposing party.

But the other obstacle may be more pernicious: a fear among legislators that there is no point to legislating if the Court will simply invalidate anything Congress achieves."

"Thread: Today, the Supreme Court covertly destroyed a precedent handed down exactly 51 years ago.

Federal cops who try to kill you, who jail you on false charges, who violate the law in grotesque ways are now shielded from accountability. I'd like to explain how we got here.
On June 21, 1971, SCOTUS ruled that federal cops *could* be sued after they barged into a man's home without a warrant & strip-searched him.

But the Court has continuously undermined that ruling. Two weeks ago, it did that again. And today, the justices quietly killed it.
In 2011, Officer Heather Weyker made up a sex-trafficking ring & jailed a teen girl for years on bogus charges.

A court said Weyker broke the law—but ruled she can't be sued bc she was working for the federal gov't.

Today, SCOTUS let that ruling stand. https://t.co/9V3uGVI0ED
In 2019, DHS Agent Ray Lamb tried to shoot a man with whom he had a *personal* beef. His gun jammed.

A court said Lamb broke the law—but ruled he can't be sued bc he was working for the federal gov't.

Today, SCOTUS let that ruling stand. https://t.co/d1Cs7290Xe
In doing so, the Supreme Court effectively said that federal agents performing immigration duties have free rein to violate your rights without fear of recourse. They are, in some sense, above the laws they enforce.

Quite the job perk."

Despite battles with utowncha, I think i can safely say they were being sarcastic/hyperbolic based on history. (although maybe cabbage knew that in which case I'll see myself out) (or maybe I'm wrong in which case, again, I'll see myself out)

CNN headline says, "eliminating the constitutional right to abortion". Was it ever a constitutional right? Pretty sure this outcome was all but guaranteed when RBG died if not before. This is what is possible when the legislative body decides not to legislate. Your "rights" are adjudicated in courts of law subject to the whims of political appointments and trickery. It's a constitutional right when it's written into the constitution (ideally in a clear and unambiguous manner).

^I suppose it's debatable under the 9th amendment (which, as you say, is subject to the whims of political appointments and trickery).

^^yes bc SCOTUS said so. Constitutional rights only exist as far as you can get 5 justices to agree. There's almost no constitutional right written with enough detail to stand up against someone that wants to interpret it differently.

Quote :
"On January 22, 1973, the Supreme Court issued a 7–2 decision holding that the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution provides a fundamental "right to privacy", which protects a pregnant woman's right to an abortion"

"Clarence Thomas, in his concurrence with today's decision: "we should reconsider all of this Court's substantive due process precedents, including Griswold, Lawrence, and Obergefell."

Those decisions prevent states from banning contraception, LGBT+ sex, and same-sex marriage."
