    SCOTUS invalidates the Louisiana anti-abortion law in June Medical 5-4

    Comment


      Well, that disproves my theory that the Supremes were setting themselves up to support the Louisiana law with their previous decisions this term.

      That's fantastic, and deeply surprising, news.

        It was all about Roberts and he still cares enough about stare decisis not to overturn four year old precedents just because the composition of the Court has changed

        Comment


          Dems still need to win in November to prevent the anti-abortionists trying to rerun this kind of stunt when the composition changes again.

          What are the chances of a Dem Senate being able and willing to impeach Kavanaugh?

          Comment


            I'm going to say "pretty darned low".

            Comment


              I will take the under on that.

              Kavanaugh is obviously a twunt of the first order, but what would be the charge(s)?

              Comment


                Lying under oath during his senate testimony?

                Although the odds of the Senate Democrats actually doing it are basically zero.

                  The difficulty of proving that beyond a reasonable doubt in a normal criminal court would be extremely high.

                  It becomes exponentially more difficult in a political proceeding.

                    I can't say I think the first impeachment trial of a Supreme Court Justice in 215 years (current batting rate 0.0) seems like a good box to open with the Republican party in the mood it has been for the past decade.

                      I think they'd be better off putting something in Clarence Thomas's coffee.

                        They did that with Scalia and then still screwed it all up.

                            His acting an arse on Twitter wasn't the original concern. He has subordinates for the other, normally more important stuff.

                              I've only just heard about the story that Russia was paying the Taliban to kill US soldiers in Afghanistan to which Trump responded by being nice to Putin. That seems...quite big news in any normal time.

                                Such are the times in which we live.

                                Though it is resonating among GOP foreign policy and military types in a way that most of his atrocities do not.

                                  Fox, of course, are presenting it as an argument between Trump and the NYT without actually mentioning the substance of the allegation at all.

                                            Both Gorsuch and Kavanaugh vote against the President (Thomas and Alito dissent)

                                              Thomas and Alito?

                                                Kavanaugh took the chance to show he's partisan on everything except Trump's personal interests; and/or is thinking beyond November.

                                                What can Vance do with those tax details that would hurt Trump before November?

                                                Have Thomas and/or Alito voted against Trump on any issue?

                                                EDIT:

                                                  Plenty, you would hope.
                                                  This ought to be the beginning of the end for the racist prick, shouldn't it...?

                                                    Once one of Gorsuch, Roberts or Kavanaugh voted against the Prez, it makes political sense for the others to join in. It makes them look less partisan when their vote it no longer meaningful.
