  1. Republicans will be furious that, on this occasion at least, all Americans were treated equal.

    • you dems are such hypocrites

      @Allan Burns we are not the ones who voted in Robert Byrd for 40 years. A grand wizard of the klan who was eulogized by Barack Obama. That was the inbreeding Democratic cultists. Duh!

      @Jeremy Backup really? Sounds like a slam dunk…. Eh? If so, why didn’t stuttering drunk Nancy iminaminaminapeachmint Trump for Mueller’s findings? That is, of course Mueller wasn’t lying….. Did you know that Robert Mueller was a republican and a Vietnam war hero? Lol. Was justice served ice cold?

    • @Jeremy Backup Trump will not be charged for obstruction in a case that had no merit for investigation and was begun as a political hit job against Trump. If Mueller had anything, Trump would’ve been impeached for treason instead of the Ukraine deal.

    • @joe blow can you elaborate?

    Of course Brett Kavanaugh would be on the minority side to vote against it Trump flunky

    If it wasn’t for Mitch McConnell or Moscow Mich or how the Lincoln party says Rich Mitch he would not be on the Supreme Court Justice

    Wow another bigley loss for Trump and his unchristian born again Christian’s!

    • Mueller Time We got tired of you Yahoo’s preaching at us.

    • Mueller Time | June 15, 2020 at 4:53 PM | Reply

      @Keith Mc we do not preach. That is the church of atheism that preaches day in and out. You should take it door to door like your fellow cultist Mormons and Jehovah witnesses.

      @Keith Mc did you just admit that the DNC is a cult? That’s the first step to leaving a cult!!! There is hope for you!!!!!!!

    • @Mueller Time – Matthew 28:18-20 18Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.

      @Dwayne Shaw amen

  5. Never thought I would say this, but good job Gorsuch.

    • Brian Collinson | June 15, 2020 at 4:22 PM | Reply

      “Good job Gorsuch”–what a strange sentence. I guess the lawyer trained in the meaning of stare decisis showed up for work. Good on ya, Mr. Justice Gorsuch.

    • @Brian Collinson Yeah, I was thinking it was strange when I wrote it, but Gorsuch has a long history ruling in favor of those who put him on the SC, Evangelicals.

    VICTORY!!!!! ❤🌈❤🌈❤🌈❤👏

      I support the LGBQU but I had a friend tell me a long time ago I thought the Q was taking off am I correct or am I wrong I’m just asking as a friend of a transgender

  7. Scotus did not follow the rule of law, they interpreted the letter of the law and by doing so made the rule of law.
    Glad they did.

  8. Do any of the GOP know anything of anything? They keep pushing their dictators orders and get shot down.

  9. Well, 67% followed rule of law, others followed their own prejudiced ideology.

    It’s not stunning. It should’ve been a given and the result an anticlimax. Canada has figured this nonsense out a long time ago.

  11. Equality. This shouldn’t even be up for debate. Sad that it still is, today. But at least the right decision was made.
    It’s just common sense, after all.
    Good for Gorsuch!

  12. Too bad we can’t “cancel” Thomas, Alito and Kavanaugh.

    Let’s hope they keep their vision as clear when it comes to Trump’s taxes.

      What is this a fkg soap opera to you? Look at that hook in your nose… everyone’s a fkg expert on everything seems like. You’re lead like a sheep to the slaughter

    • @15k DOW 2022 what has he got to hide?
      start with Deutsch bank.
      Have a good look at the Bank of Cyprus while you are at it.
      Wilbur ‘evil POS’ Ross should be able to assist.

      @Higgs Boson lol. Did Trump prank you idiots again? Remember when CNN made Nick sandman a millionaire?

    • Mueller Time | June 15, 2020 at 7:12 PM | Reply

      @Higgs Boson desperate? Like when Rachel Alex Jones maddow started his show with something that would put Trump in prison, but then he verified that Trump paid 38 million in taxes and was super rich. Lol. Another liberal fail. What’s it like not winning?

    • Mueller Time | June 15, 2020 at 7:13 PM | Reply

      @Higgs Boson remember when Mueller chases that conspiracy? Lol. Exonerated

  14. We need to fix this so this is final and we don’t keep fighting the same fights over and over based on the whims of an outlaw president and his repub enablers. Roe v Wade should be the final law of the land too, but we have to keep defending it.

  15. Not being able to fire someone because of sexual orientation seems like a no-brainer. But then again, America can’t even pass a law against lynching. 🤦‍♂️

  16. Laura Walker | June 15, 2020 at 4:29 PM | Reply

    CORRECTION: 6 SCOTUS Justices followed rule of law. 3 decided to ignore the law.

  17. Laura Walker | June 15, 2020 at 4:31 PM | Reply

    Who has confidence in these justices to follow rule of law with Trump’s taxes? Not including boofer I love beer corrupt Kavanaugh.

  18. Despite attacking the US Constitution and it’s system of checks and balances, despite giving the US presidency extraordinary authoritarian power, at last two of the degenerate right wing justices stood up for the law and the people.

  19. Bone spurs can’t walk down the ramp.

  20. Wait until Trump finds out he can’t fire Neil Gorsuch or John Roberts.
