Supreme Court Powerfully Smacks California’s Newsom

The Supreme Court acted swiftly on Friday, granting an injunction only 9 hours after the briefing concluded in the case Tandon v. Newsom.

Forbes reports:

The Supreme Court ruled by a 5-4 margin late Friday that California’s coronavirus-related restrictions on gathering in private homes violated constitutional rights on the free exercise of religion, the latest ruling from the high court that prohibits authorities from enforcing limits on religious services.

Five conservative justices agreed that California’s restrictions banning any type of gathering in private homes of more than three households violated the Constitution by treating “comparable secular activity more favorably than at-home religious exercise.”

The justices noted that a lower court, the Ninth Circuit, “did not conclude” that permitted secular activities such as indoor dining and movie theaters “pose a lesser risk of transmission” than religious exercises in a private residence.

The challenge was brought by a pair of Santa Clara County pastors who said the state’s restrictions prevented them from meeting for weekly Bible study and prayer sessions.

Reason’s Josh Blackman wrote a long-form piece explaining the significance of the decision. You can read that here.

The most poignant part was his take on Chief Justice John Roberts:

The Chief Justice dissents, without any explanation:

THE CHIEF JUSTICE would deny the application.

Why did the Chief dissent? Probably because he could not force his five colleagues to wait till April 15 when the order expired. Indeed, he couldn’t even get his colleagues to wait 24 hours. Last term Roberts was in charge. Now he has no sway. At this point, I think the odds of Roberts retiring are greater than of Breyer retiring.

The Supreme Court must now embrace the writings of Justice Brett Kavanaugh and Justice Neil Gorsuch on the matter in a major win for conservatives.

Justice John Roberts is a RINO.
Strange that he generally votes with the Democrats.

Roberts has either been paid off or blackmailed. Probably had his name on Epstein flight log to his Island of pedophilia.

It is about time the court got a dose of reality and common sense. Roberts is beyond redemption.

YOU GOT THAT RIGHT! He is secretly a Demoncrat, and probably has an affair with B.O., literally cracking up laughing, and M.O., having an affair with Killary.

Right next to Maxine Waters, Nancy Pelosi, The entire Obama and Biden Administrations, including the T**T SQUAD. Maxine Waters was so out of line, talking to Rep. Jim Jordan the way she did. She gets away with everything. She has committed Treason and High crimes as well. She uses her own People and after they vote for her, she throughs them to the wolves.

Can’t remember his name but he was Trump’s ambassador to Germany and headed one of the spy agencies. No nonsense, just the facts. He was the won that released a LOT of info the DEMs wanted to kept hidden. He is thinking bout running for California governor. I am from California and it would be a blessing to have someone who believes in Trumps MAGA!

Looking at the list of people he’s chosen for his cabinet and every other position, the idea of Biden nominating anyone is scary. It would probably have to be a transgendered person from a minority group and a carrying socialist/communist who thinks the constitution is an outdated piece of “expletive deleted” trash.

If democrat lifer bureaucrats weren’t so stupid, they would know they don’t need to “pack the court” because far more justices appointed by republican presidents become liberal than do democrat appointees become conservative.
e.g. John Roberts

The ruling was 5 to 4 ? Who were the 4 TRAITORS who wanted to continue to VIOLATE American Citizens Constitutional RIGHTS ? IT SHOULD BE MANDATORY, THAT WHEN THE SUPREME COURTS MAKES A RULING, THE NAME OF EACH JUDGE AND HOW THEY VOTED IS REVEALED SO WE CAN KNOW WHO THE TRUE “JUSTICES” ARE.
