  1. Is anyone surprised that Alito, Kavanaugh, and Thomas voted against civil rights.

    Laws are meaningless without enforcement!
    Trump Dump Hole Show must go!

    As a Brit I am absolutely gob smacked that this human right didn’t exist before!!!!

    • Sabrina Arnaldo Rojo Parnas maybe, but the law still supports

      @Cronykil There’s no real hate in the UK. A Conservative Prime Minister and Parliment passed equal marriage, not a court.

    • Really? UK has transgender palace guards and soldiers and MI5 agents and whatever?

      As a Brit, you should know the atrocities of the British colonists across the world!

      Rachel Usher Equally gob smacked from Australia- this is supposed to be the leading nation of the free world! They are completely backward! I thought they were progressive! Seriously they are voting on human rights in 2020! They are voting on abortion and issuing bills that prevent police brutality! The world has moved on clearly without America! Trump has exposed America for what it REALLY is! Unbelievable!

  4. Of course Kavanaugh voted against: what an utter worm of a “man”

    • @EcchiDragon 80 Trump got scammed on the Gorsuch deal

      he’s a democrat

    • He’s such a joke that even his name makes me laugh

    • Kavnaugh is such a turd, he told people he was from a poor neighborhood, which is a suburb of Washington DC, called Bethesda. I’ve been going there for YEARS, nothing is poor in Bethesda.

      That’s insulting to most worms!

    • @Crystal Giddens It is the Court’s job to interpret the law, not make it. They interpreted the law as it was written and they have found the law to protect LGBTI people in the workplace. That IS their job. No one usuped anything. For the US to catch up with the rest of the developed world and provide protections in accommodation, education, clubs and other aspects of public life, legislation will need to be passed…… and the Equality Act won’t pass so long as this President refuses to sign it. That doesn’t mean the court shouldn’t do their job and interpret workplace law when it is presented.

    Welcome to 21st century America!

    • Government tracking you protestor by your phone, they will be calling you and telling you to quarantine, then you will need to give them name of who you have been around or they will get it from your phone as your phone will tell them because government has asked cell companies to add new tracker software in your phone. It will call the phone of people that were near you and tell them to get tested and or quarantine for 14 days. This goes on and on and will need to quarantine. Government knows where you are and who you are with using this new app.

  8. There is much wailing and gnashing of teeth over at the Federalist Society today. They paid good money for Gorsuch to be installed onto the SCOTUS and he ruled in direct opposition to their expectations of him.

    • @JR Y Means nothing only thing this media has done is criticize Trump. Nothing they say or show can be taken at face value anymore.

    • @phuloc6 I said nothing about the media. You decided to go after Biden’s shoe-tying. I’m pointing out the guy you are rooting for cannot hold a bottle of water with one hand. So your point is moot.

      Hey phulo you keep drinking that kool aide. Trump is serving. And the lies he is. Telling HIS cult followers. U wait until November we will see who can tie. Their shoes

      @Doc i really hope she retires when biden wins and lets biden choose someone younger

    • @Juanita Goudeau Didn’t the same media say Trump had no chance of winning and Hillary will defeat him in a Landslide. Tell me again how did that turn out?

  9. Two judges with accusations of improper sexual conduct against women were against. Figures.

  11. It’s basically a 90 year old “ US judge “ who realized in a pill and booze haze that if the US does not comply with international laws they have to pay a pile of fines and can’t include this simple law after a June deadline You are kind of 45 years behind everybody else and full of BS as usual Congratulations 🎈

    I guess they can have their cake and eat it too as long as it’s not a wedding cake?

    Thomas, Alito and Kavanaugh are fascist. They would be in the dock during the Nuremberg trials.

    Welcome to the 21st century. Keep going. (For the record, that sort of protection has been in place in your northern neighbor since the last century…)

    If the feeling about Gorsuch being such a textualist is true..then I look forward to see him rule that Trump has to release his taxes to the means and ways committee under that specific law.

    Can Ms. Mika take a breathe before Mr. Scarborough jumps in. I understand this is a live show, but let her statements have a chance to breathe

    I think that, if someone was allowed to have a gun on their hip, or a rifle in their arms anywhere near me, I’d freak out. You know that there are bullets in them. That person automatically is a threat to my life. They can shoot me if they feel like it. Leave your guns at home unless you are hunting.

    What relief to see that at least one branch of government works. I’m almost emotional. I’ve been waiting for good old fashioned function for these last three years especially. Is it too much to have hope for our government? This decision has at least held a match to hope’s snuffed pilot light. Thank you Supreme Court for being adults.
