The Supreme Court Gives Amnesty to Illegal Regulations
For the second time in a week, the Supreme Court has allowed liberals to enact one of their longstanding legislative priorities without the consent of Congress or the president. Conservatives could be forgiven for wondering why liberals need win only one election â€” or none â€” to have their choices made permanent, while President Trumpâ€™s voters could not even accomplish the modest goal of seeing the executive branch stop acting illegally to protect people who broke the law.
At issue this time was President Obamaâ€™s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy, which let illegal-immigrant â€śDreamersâ€ť stay in the country and receive federal benefits if they had been brought here as children by their parents.

But the justicesâ€™ politics havenâ€™t changed, and we canâ€™t assume there is any kind of pattern here. The court is still fundamentally conservative, and these rulings are more the product of luck than any kind of shift in the â€śhearts and mindsâ€ť of Neil Gorsuch and John Roberts. Do not be surprised if next year, they rule in ways that hurt LGBTQ+ people and immigrants just as much as this weekâ€™s rulings have helped them....

These justices were picked mainly to support business and I think they have been fairly consistent in doing thatâť—đź’°
The so-called â€śSupremeâ€ť Court, a pusillanimous pack of piddling, pandering pismires, will learn the true meaning of â€śsupremeâ€ť when they appear before the REAL Supreme Justice to give an account for their wickedness.
