    Apparently there are some shreds of decency left in your hand-picked, illegal candidate. Who knew?

    Actually, you DO have it stacked. The controls are in place to give Trump a free reign if he’s lucky enough to win reelection – the only problem currently in evidence is the Courts unfortunate tendency to favor the rule of law every once in while over abject partisanship.

    This will “self-correct” if Trump actually is reelected.

    Please note, Chief Justice actually said that the court had no problem expelling Americans from the country; the problem the Court had was with the incomprehensibility of the Trumpian arguments – the Supreme Court is actually already halfway there.

    And the SCOTUS conveniently corrected Trump’s crayon scribbles homework and gave him a “do-over”.

    The issue isn’t just the legal argle-bargle red tape BS or if they can persecute hundreds of thousands of people, but why in Hell Trump and his Republican cronies want to do it at all, and their moral decrepitude of wrapping themselves in the American flag while doing it.

    Why? Why? What makes Republicans follow along with something and someone so hateful and wrong that even a child could see it?

    I think it’s stacked too. But I think that even justices who like the GOP agenda cannot find it in their hearts/minds to ignore the law.

    Well, the Red Meat Eating Base thought they had it “sacked” . . . . but somebody “let the car out of the bag” the way Trump mishandled things.

    Remember when he said, "I love the Dreamers, but it’s up to Congress to fix it. If they won’t, I will "

    Knowing full well they wouldn’t.

    Roberts occasionally votes ‘liberal’ on social issues.

    Because fair and balanced.

    It’s not as if Republican* elites give a $h!t about gay marriage or immigrants.


    But anytime there is any question of moneyed interests and/or Republicans* getting/holding power, he votes exactly as dictated by Trump and Moscow Mitch.

    The Supremes will probably OK some police reform — as long as it does not disturb wealth inequality.

    Hard to get too excited over two common sense rulings. Good for the Dreamers. Good for all who favor equal protection under the law. Still, there is no exaggerating the harm done by Citizens United and the gutting of the Voting Rights Act.

    @Well I Never

    Why? Why? What makes Republicans

    They crave absolute power to create a new Republican aristocracy. They’ll restrict the vote to cement their power, control all aspects of government, and thoroughly loot this country. They’ll let a few non-Party professionals, police, and soldiers share some of the wealth (Orwell’s “Betas”), but the rest are all Ayn Randian disposable peons: kept uneducated, indoctrinated, imprisoned – and in poverty. And when they get old or sick, the 16th century form of “health care”, where people knock on the back door of a church and hope they’ll be taken in so they don’t face an agonizing death in the streets.

    Hell, that form of fascism can be as bad or worse than their favorite boogey-man, Communism.

    That, my friends, is the Republican wet dream.

    it’s good to see, at times, that good sense runs true to most people in both parties
