What the hell, Sam’: Justice Alito slammed for making ‘joke’ about Black children in KKK costumes
Full article https://www.rawstory.com/what-the-hell ... -costumes/Later, Justice Samuel Alito, one of the Court's most far-right jurists, decided to use Justice Jackson's hypothetical analogy to make a point, and he did so by mockingly joking about Black children wearing KKK costumes.
"Justice Jackson's example of that, the Santa in the mall who doesn't want his picture taken with Black children," Justice Alito began, getting the basics of the analogy incorrect.
"So if there's a Black Santa at the other end of the mall, and he doesn't want to have his picture taken with a child who is dressed up in a Ku Klux Klan outfit, now does that Black Santa have to do that?"
Experts shocked as Gorsuch angrily accuses Colorado of forcing anti-LGBTQ baker into ‘re-education program’
Full article https://www.rawstory.com/experts-shock ... n-program/U.S. Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch appeared angry and even hostile at several points throughout Monday’s oral arguments in a case brought by a Colorado right-wing evangelical Christian website designer who is suing the state because she wants to be able to discriminate against same-sex couples who are getting married.
The case, 303 Creative LLC v. Elenis, promises to be one of the most important of the term, and arguments extended more than two hours.
During one of the more heated moments, conservative Justice Gorsuch attacked Colorado Solicitor General Eric Olson, claiming the state forced an infamous anti-LGBTQ baker who also went before the Supreme Court, winning his 2018 case in a very narrow ruling, into a “re-education program.”
Then we have this monster.
The Supreme Court's next big case can set the stage for more Trump chaos
Full story https://www.rawstory.com/supreme-court ... I#cxrecs_sAccording to legal analyst Shan Wu, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments on Wednesday that could lead to a ruling that would create chaos for decades and throw future elections into turmoil on a state-by-state basis.
At issue is Moore v. Harper, which could set the stage for the implementation of the “Independent State Legislature Theory” that would have a wide-ranging impact on federal elections by allowing state legislatures to manipulate voting districts even more than they are doing so now.
According to Wu, "Proponents of the 'ISLT'–Independent State Legislature Theory–believe that the U.S. Constitution bestows unreviewable power upon state legislatures to determine how congressional elections–and by extension Presidential elections–are conducted," adding, "Its proponents claim that the 'Elections Clause' of the U.S. Constitution, which states that state legislatures shall prescribe the 'Times, Places and Manner of holding Elections for Senators and Representatives,' means no court can review any actions taken by a state legislatures with regards to voting in the state."
Looks like we have a lot to be concerned about and not much we can do about it.
