#IllegitimateSCOTUS Strikes Again

Opus Dei and SCOTUS Chief Justice John Roberts

Our #IllegitimateSCOTUS strikes again:

The Supreme Court on Thursday sharply cut back the Environmental Protection Agency’s ability to reduce the carbon output of existing power plants, a blow to the nation’s chances of averting catastrophic climate change.

The vote was 6 to 3, with Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. writing for the court’s conservatives.

I don’t know how we go about doing it, but we gotta throw these bums out.

Oh, look, they are giving us a preview of coming attractions:

The Supreme Court on Thursday said it will consider what would be a radical change in the way federal elections are conducted, giving state legislatures sole authority to set the rules for contests even if their actions violated state constitutions and resulted in extreme partisan gerrymandering for congressional seats.

They love states rights so much…

The court will look next term at a case from North Carolina, where Republicans want to restore a redistricting map that was drawn by the GOP-led legislature but rejected as a violation of the state constitution by the state’s supreme court.

…that they don’t want the states’ supreme courts to get in the way.

    Once again the “Supreme Court” takes a nice, big dump on the dining room table. Corporate shills rule the land.

    These motherfuckers…I can’t even. Just wilding out and running rough shod over everything and everyone in their attempt to enshrine White Christian Fascism as the law of the land. Apartheid America just in time for the good old 4th of July.

    Blue states must immediately nullify this illegitimate SCOTUS by stating that they will no longer obey its rulings and will not cooperate with states that do. They made their decisions; now, let’s see them try to enforce them.

      Maybe they’ll send the Supreme Court army, led by former Captain Alito of the Signal Corps, the only vet on the court.

  4. They gutted more than the EPA…the oligarchs can complain about ANY fucking regulation that doesn’t explicitly spell out each and every possible thing the agency is supposed to regulate.

    Oh hey, we find that commonly used food ingredient X is carcinogenic? Sorry the law establishing the FDA didn’t explicitly say the FDA could regulate ‘X’m, so tough shit, consumer.

    The surviving Koch brother must be having multiple spontaneous orgasms…the long awaited fruit of his efforts bribes have finally borne fruit/

    • First of all; gross.
      Yes, I think that overturning Roe and the related abominations that follow are strategic. They keep the rubes happy thinking that their “one & true” god is going to rule the land in a manner that is the Republican dream. In reality, the oligarchs are quietly making changes that will create their libertarian/anarchistic dream – which is a nightmare even for those rubes who think they’ve won.

        I agree. We can complain all we want about oligarchs in other countries, but we of course have them here, and they have enormous influence. I think Roberts’ main goal has always been to give them more power, to legalize as much corruption as possible. I think another recent case concerned Ted Cruz lending his campaign lots of money at high interest, then raising money after the election to pay it off. So donors are putting money into Cruz’s pocket, and of course want something in return. This is fine with Roberts, as long as they don’t demand something specific for the money (they can, however, request a meeting to discuss what they’d like, and Cruz of course knows he needs to give it to them or he won’t get any more of their money).

    Illegitimate Supreme Court is too kind of a description. It’s a full-fledged Fascist Court now.
