    Roberts seems to have lost all his principals?

  2. Peter Greagg

    Roberts has a huge case of TDS.

  3. C.L.

    Not necessarily.
    He’s simply ashamed of his Catholicism and goes to great lengths to distance himself from it.
    He wants the respect of evil people.

  4. Joanna Smythe

    Sidney has released her Kraken.

  5. Roberts joins liberals in dissent.

    There’s something bizarre to be terming those who oppose free assembly, as liberals.

  6. cohenite

    Roberts is a piece of shit.

  7. notafan

    Its a perfectly sensible decision

    10 people in a building that can seat a 1000 whole secular businesses have more lax arrangements?

    Yeah nah.

  8. Fisky

    Yeah, any pretense that these people believe in equal protection kind of flew out the window when they allowed the BLM riots to go unchecked all through the summer.

    My thoughts exactly.
    Then again, the modern American “liberal” cum-lefty is far more in favour of government control than the classical liberal.

  10. JC

    Yep, from the first pic I ever saw of Roberts, I felt very uneasy about him. He looked shifty with a weak chin. My hunch was correct.

    ‘There’s something bizarre to be terming those who oppose free assembly, as liberals.’

    Yes, they really mean “progressive”, as in stage IV cancer.

    He’ll welch if the Prez election arrives at SCOTUS as well. Thank goodness ACB got in there.

    Who knows? Is there any sort of precedent for this? States have the responsibility of sending electors to the college. SC could just bat everything back to the states. The responsibility for overturning an election, no matter how suspect, will weigh heavily on the court.

  15. Infidel Tiger

    Roberts is an awful person.

    Thanks Bush. That family has destroyed America.

  16. Infidel Tiger

    If Never Trump had their way, that decision would have been 2-7 to the Evil
    Team.

  17. Roger

    Roberts joins liberals in dissent.

    Indeed, but words change meaning over time.

    Liberals now oppose freedom of assembly, freedom of speech, freedom of religion and the presumption of innocence.

    I very much doubt if ever a word changed its meaning so quickly.

  18. Dot

    Trump should appoint Lion Ted next.

    Both have magnificent manes.

    MAGA.

    Liberalism is good. It goes hand in hand with US conserativism – the conservative interpretation of the US Constitution.

    Progressivism is misguided – it goes hand in hand with the misguided, liberal approach to interpreting the US Constitution.

    European liberalism is for freedom, American liberals want free shit.

  20. W Hogg

    CJ didn’t join the liberals. In opposing the injunction he said it was moo as Cuomo had withdrawn the offending directive. He would have granted the injunction if needed. His dissent was nothing like the liberals.

  21. Robber Baron

    Roberts may have a bad case of Lolita express constipation.

    Who did he vote with?

  23. HP

    Roberts is going to retire under Biden, should the Dems have a Senate at any point.

    He is the type of fool who will do so out of the totally misguided notion that this will restore “balance”. He will have go as far as leaking that he did it “for Ginsberg”.

    He will be praised in the media as the one who saved SCOTUS.

  24. Infidel Tiger

    Gorsuch is surprisingly sound in his reasoning:

    The constitution is about to get a workout this Christmas. The US is about to see how black and white originalist the Chief justice really is.

  26. Rex Anger

    European liberalism is for freedom, American liberals want free shit.

    It’s a rather spectacular historical inversion, isn’t it Dot?

    Just 200-odd years ago, it was the Americans and the British who argued (and fought) hard for personal freedom before God and before the State. While continental Europe was the monocultural bastion of the free-shit-for-all-the-good-little-comrades/tyrannical big government ‘liberalism’ brigade…

    Roberts may have a bad case of Lolita express constipation.

    Remember how they sternly and dutifully collected all that evidence? The safe full of DVD’s ?

    All taken into custody, stamped and then … errr … forgotten about for some reason.

    Then again, the modern American “liberal” cum-lefty is far more in favour of government control than the classical liberal.

    They stole the name … the collectivists steal everything … they co-opt and infiltrate … promise anything, bait & switch, never deliver.

    The Green movement long ago was interested in the environment, but now it’s a socialist core, using the logically meaningless “sustainable” as pretext to destroy capitalism.

    The original concept of a corporation was a productive business but now it’s a pathway for senior management to gain resources without having the responsibility of ownership.

    Feminists long ago made a somewhat legitimate claim for equality under law, but now they have been turned into some weird postmodern caricature … struggling to figure out what a woman even is.

    Charities that promised to help people have been turned into general purpose lefty activist centres and money funnels.

    There’s nothing these people cannot corrupt and turn inside out.

    Catholics … how’s that liberation theology Pope working out for you? Enjoy your Gaia worship? Feeling like perhaps the Bible Christians might have been onto something?

    Just before midnight on the night before Thanksgiving, the Supreme Court blocked New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo from enforcing attendance limits at religious services. The vote is 5-4, with Roberts and the three liberals dissenting.

    Roberts has a huge case of TDS.

    He showed how unreliable he is long ago during the Obamacare fight when he declared that it was a tax and therefore constitutional. It’s hard to decide whether he is just awful on his own or is being blackmailed.

  31. Noodles Romanoff

    According to the ABC the “conservative” judges “chose” to side with the constitution rather than public health concerns.

  32. win

    Just how confident can you be when you can close down Churches and Synagogues but not Mosques.

  33. W Hogg

    Who did he vote with?

    The liberals said the order was constitutional.

    CJ said it was not constitutional, but he won’t issue a hypothetical injunction against an order that was withdrawn. His “dissent” will be used against future examples.

  34. Herodotus

    They used to say Australia was an odd sort of place, where crows fly backwards to keep the dust out of their eyes, and where Liberal means Conservative.
    Liberal here no longer means conservative, dust in the air is now a sign of either climate change or environmental vandalism, and you can fined for killing a poisonous snake that’s a danger to your family.

    “Progressives” screamed blue murder when J Edgar Hoover was alleged to have safes full of material to blackmail politicians and other members of what is now called the Deep State or the Swamp.

    They are – strangely – silent about the existence of such material these days.

    This Thanksgiving I’m thankful for President Donald J. Trump’s appointment of three conservative Supreme Court justices who ruled late last night in favor of churches and against government overreach in the state of New York.
    Justice Neil Gorsuch strongly criticized the court’s previous approach. He wrote: “It is time—past time—to make plain that, while the pandemic poses many grave challenges, there is no world in which the Constitution tolerates color-coded executive edicts that reopen liquor stores and bike shops but shutter churches, synagogues, and mosques.”
    May God protect our nation from the storms that are on the horizon

    According to the ABC the “conservative” judges “chose” to side with the constitution rather than public health concerns.

    The ABC and their fellow travellers on the left weren’t remotely concerned about “public health” during the BLM/Antifa protests and riots, which attracted vastly bigger crowds than churches and synagogues.
    A big FU to the ABC!

  38. Scott Osmond

    Roberts joined the minority? What a shocking surprise.

  39. Zatara

    Catholics … how’s that liberation theology Pope working out for you? Enjoy your Gaia worship? Feeling like perhaps the Bible Christians might have been onto something?

    You mean “Bible Christians” like this?

    “I need money for my Lear Jet to let me travel around and heal more souls. Praise Gee Zus.”

    Charlatans slip into every organization from time to time. Especially when the left works so hard to place them there.

  40. Old Lefty

    As I said elsewhere, the proposition that believers should have the same rights of expression and assembly as everyone else now equates to fascist theocracy in today’s woke left Thinkspeak – unless of course if they are Salafists who hate the West am.mucj as the wokists.

  41. Old Lefty

    ‘as much as’ the wokists! Apologies.

  42. Mick Gold Coast QLD

    “Coney Barrett played a decisive role”

    Yeah, sure. She and Brett Kavanaugh are as impure as any senior public servant in the USA – if there is a good quid in it they will take it every day of the week, for selfish reasons and for personal survival in the foul bog that is US bureaucracy.

    No, I would rather that their nation (and ours, for that matter) be strengthened to withstand those storms.
