  1. Good. Hope they have as much sense about fascism and Trump taxes. Remember, this is the court leadership that gave us Citizen’s United.

    • Thomas Armsworthy Jr | June 15, 2020 at 12:37 PM | Reply

      You do not have a right to see his taxes..there is no law saying he is required by law to show his taxes to the public

    • @Thomas Armsworthy Jr when the authorities have probable cause that someone has committed a crime, they can go to the courts and ask for a subpoena for specific evidence that would prove the crime.
      In this case, Deutsche Bank alleges that Donald Frump is involved in money laundering and insursnce/tax fraud. There has been congressional sworn-in testimony that he did those things by someone who witnessed and conspired with the suspect.
      The evidence that would corroborate or disprove the allegation are his tax returns.
      Are you saying he is above the law, the law doesn’t apply to him?

    • Matt O'Byrne | June 15, 2020 at 3:09 PM | Reply

      @Thomas Armsworthy Jr how many times has he promised to release them? Trump has said repeatedly he has no issue with releasing them and has promised to do repeatedly. So why he is still trying to hide them?

    • SSS🌙 I did. I stand by my point. The current bench did vote for Citizens United. Do you have evidence of that not happening.

    • You are right about that Old woman!

  2. This should have been a unanimous decision. Meanwhile, there are criminals on the court.

    • Nancy Whitty | June 15, 2020 at 6:50 PM | Reply

      @The Ropes of Renovation well good for you. Too bad you can’t even remember what you posted this morning. Too busy attacking decent folk trying to share a sense of humor. You must’ve forgotten to take your meds this morning, as well. Get a grip.

    • @15k DOW 2022
      990, 000 are from Never Trumpers.

    • The Ropes of Renovation Your self hatred is severe. You lack self esteem and you are low class.

    • @15k DOW 2022
      Trump’s numbers were never that *”bigly”* to begin with. His only recieved about 25% of the vote from eligible American citizens in 2016. His re-election may be in question if we ask ourselves if we are actually *”…better off now than 4 years ago?”*

    • Valerie Etter | June 15, 2020 at 10:32 PM | Reply

      I’m grateful for the decision today and I will stand with that until some can die out and a DEM president elected next term.

  3. Fairness rules, prejudice looses.

  4. Three of the Supreme Court Justices voted against LGBTQ rights. It is sad that we consider this a win.

    • @H. A. L. Sure that is good no one have a right to discriminate anyone but there are people who do and they also have a right to hire who they want in their business, read again what I said, not about firing but hiring, this law is not good for people who are looking for a job business will not want to hire someone that can sue them, Black people experience that look what the law did to them they just can’t get a job a few will be let in to divert the intention but the majority are out doing what they have to do to survive

    • @manny mo They can only sue them if they are being fired for their sexuality. That is very hard to prove, especially when corporations can afford top-notch lawyers. Fox is melting your brain.

    • @Keenan Thomas The judges aren’t supposed to represent opposing political ideology. They are supposed to interpret laws and how they apply to more narrow and unseen circumstances in a manner that is equitable. Yet two justices who went to the same schools and understand the law in an entirely similar manner will end up making completely different interpretations based upon their political party. The entire system has mutated into something that is unrecognizable.

    • @Keenan Thomas There are plenty of cases where I would be completely fine with split decisions, but when it comes to split decisions based solely on identity politics, then it shows the system is broken.

    • Keenan Thomas | June 15, 2020 at 7:17 PM | Reply

      H. A. L. I agree my point is how it got to the Supreme Court in the first place. People focus on the wrong thing or put the 2 before the one. Trump didn’t make racism, racism made Trump. So, while people are whining distracted by ONE impotent man his legion grows stronger. 3 out of 6 tells me what I’m working with to stop with to getting to the Supreme Court.

  5. Another win for society as a whole.
    This was a step forward in our evolution as a society 👍

    • Your society. We may soon see something worse than Covid-19. Stay tuned.

    • @Lisa Reid you are in this society, whether you like it or not .
      Be happy we are fighting to make it a better one ,and one that is more fair to EVERYONE ,little by little. ✌

    • Callista Graves | June 15, 2020 at 2:21 PM | Reply

      @Lisa Reid what is your problem? Why should it be legal for you to fire me for who I am? Would you have me fired because I don’t believe in your faith?

  6. Todd Jenkins | June 15, 2020 at 11:29 AM | Reply

    Looks like trump may have to fire his SCOTUS picks that don’t consult him first for -their- his opinion

  7. Big Win for “Democracy” and Big Win for America!!!!

    I wonder how do Evangelical Conservatives feel now about Trump’s Supreme Court Judge Gorsuch, 🤔.

      Discriminate and it surely will, even the Supreme Court just said.

    Robert’s how about seeing trump’s taxes. Stop siding with trump which is an enemy of democracy and makes you the same.

    • @Thomas Armsworthy Jr Wow, that was some nonsensical gibberish, cadet bone spurs would be proud. Whiny amerinazi republican’t.

    • @red rover117 Every other president since Nixon has, moron.

    • red rover117 | June 15, 2020 at 4:34 PM | Reply

      @einkerl no law requiring them too though. Only law that says they have too is if Congress asks. And the only reason they’re asking is because the Democrats can’t accept that they lost. They need to get over it already.

    • @Thomas Armsworthy Jr
      I’m sure after the impeached, constantly butthurting Twitterer-in-chief is voted out, a new law regarding the the mandatory disclosure of all candidates running for office will be passed.

    • @red rover117
      All Presidents since Nixon have chosen to release their returns publicly. Trump may be forced to finally open his books like he promised at various times during his candidacy.

  11. Get on board, Republicans. Or get out of the way.

    • Just let the Republicans just get our of the way. VOTE THOSE OLD DRIED. UP BIGOTS OUT OF OFFICE. LET US MOVE FORWARD NOT BACKWARD

    • @John w Amen. The time is now! We, the people, want our fellow citizens treated with respect, honor, and equality. 2020 is the year for change.

    • Izuku Midoriya Deku | June 15, 2020 at 5:09 PM | Reply

      Ugh! These alphabet stealers. No one cares about their problems. Just get therapy

  12. Great news, but why the heck wasn’t the decision unanimous? This means that three out of nine
    Supreme Court justices are pro discrimination against LGBTQ+ people! Just let that sink in for a moment.

  13. I have little problem with Gorsich. It’s Kavanaugh I don’t trust. He’s
    A Trumper and should be e removed if the Presidency and Senate changes.

    • @michael gregory Kavanaugh has to go. He’s a joke and will never be taken as more than a puppet for Republican issues. That’s why I want to see how he votes on Trumps taxes. That is pretty cut and dry. I was never a fan of lifting the filibuster being lifted. But I’m not a fan of McConnell holding up everything because Obama is black. Anybody that’s only goal before he takes office is too keep him from getting re-elected is a problem.

      I voted for Trump and change. I knew he had a dark past but the US needed change. He did the exact opposite of his platform, and the Helsinki meet. Was enough for me.

      Trump has set up the next Presidency to abuse everything and basically eliminate oversite. That was the difference with Shumers play. There use to be e oversite to stop things like this from happening. That’s on Moscow Mitch.

      You can’t remove a Supreme Court justice. It’s a lifetime appointment.

    • Gailynn Carroll | June 15, 2020 at 7:53 PM | Reply

      WiseCentaur No

    • @Gailynn Carroll you are wrong. With the correct information. Yes he can be removed. Especially Kavanaugh and some of the recent appointments that McConnell has shoved through. Purgury under oath is a Federal offence.

    • Gailynn Carroll | June 15, 2020 at 10:48 PM | Reply

      a. barker No Supreme Court Justice has ever been removed—one was impeached, found innocent, and one resigned, but not one has been removed. Other federal appointees may be but Kavanaugh is with us for a LONG time. I wish it was otherwise but the bar for removing someone from the Supreme Court is too high.

  14. No one sexual orientation should affects their employment same go for someone’s race should not affects their employment

  15. It’s mad in 2020 this is even up for debate. Whomever voted against this should step down.

    • Keenan Thomas | June 15, 2020 at 7:46 PM | Reply

      MARY HARTMAN, MARY HARTMAN as a Christian is believe in the separation of church and state. The state should not tell the church what to believe or how it should run, and church who doesn’t have a problem believing that during tax season, should tell the state what to believe or how to run. That’s what your vote is for. It highly inappropriate, hypocritical and heresy for a preacher to discuss politics with his congregation. The same for a politician to discuss religion to his constituents. Less we live like people in the Middle East with our women covered head to toe like it says in the Bible.

    • @brian gardner Not among many of those who describe the Bible as a book of love. It is more often used by Bible Thumpers. Probably thumped the Bible a few times yourself. But only out of love for the sinner in need of your wisdom.

      Yet, the US is still suffering from the repercussions of Slavery, Jim Crow and systemic racism.

      Brian Gardner I’m doubting you’d have the same opinion if the IS was at #1 in this scenario. But let’s be real, the US isn’t “the best country in the world. There are several areas with dangerous drinking water, areas with third world conditions, highest wealth gap since the Gilded Age, most of the country can’t afford a $400 emergency, thousands and thousands die each year because they are uninsured and can’t afford health care, thousands and thousands go bankrupt over medical issues, and so much more. The only thing that the US is #1 in is the military and that’s because the administration prioritizes an unnecessarily high military and defense budget over education, helping the homeless, helping veterans, and basically every person in the US.

  18. I bet Trump is so angry about this. He thought Gorsuch was going to do all his bidding.

      Christopher Parks Christopher read the constitution. This pertains only to members of the House and the Senate. You will find this in article 1 section 6 clause 2 of the constitution. The wording is very clear.

    • T. R. Campbell | June 15, 2020 at 9:56 PM | Reply

      Christopher Parks When I’m wrong I am wrong and I readily admit it. But in this case I am correct. All one needs to do is read the constitution and it specifically states members of the House and Senate but not the president and vice president. I’ve done some research on this, I study of the constitution and I find it most interesting. It takes on a new meeting when you read the papers of the founders who were arguing various provisions.
      Here’s a good one for you Article III, Section 2 of the constitution spells out the duties of the court. Read it. There is nothing whatsoever in the constitution that gives the court the power to declare laws passed by elected representatives of the House and Senate and signed by the president, to be unconstitutional. By what authority does the Supreme Court have to declare a law unconstitutional?

      But I am glad because God showed Obama up again. The Christian was so busy blaming this man and he had nothing to do with it.

      Let see what they going to say now. People do not get it. The S.C do not play.

      Now I believe that some will change. But I have often said this was a test from God. Just to see are we going to love them the way Jesus has loved us or we going to throw stones.

      Because he without sin cast the first stone.

      I am just glad that God showed up Obama to God be the glory
