    Students for Fair Admissions Inc. v. President & Fellows of Harvard College

    The students benefiting from Harvard's discrimination against Asians have mainly been mediocre white legacy students and the children of large Harvard donors, like Jared Kushner.

    Harvard was nominally challenged by a group of Asian American students, calling themselves the Students for Fair Admissions (SFFA), who alleged that Harvard’s use of affirmative action discriminated against Asian Americans seeking admission to the school. But those students were, in fact, treated as pawns in a larger game. SFFA was organized by Ed Blum, a conservative legal gadfly who has made it his life’s work to end affirmative action. Ed Blum is not Asian American. The conservative movement against affirmative action that Blum advances does not care about Asian Americans. Students with legitimate concerns about Harvard’s admissions process allowed their case to be co-opted by a conservative bent on restoring white privilege to the admissions process.

    "independent state legislature" BS will remove Dems from Federal power for decades.

    Conservative Supreme Court justices are dragging the court deeper into a 'crisis of legitimacy'

    blunt-talking editorial from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch,

    the editors took two of the most conservative members of the Supreme Court to task

    for doing little to halt the slide in the court's credibility

    that has been in freefall after it became a 6-3 conservative majority.


    they cited Associate Justices Clarence Thomas and Sam Alito over a Thomas ruling last week,

    "In what universe is it OK for Justice Thomas not to recuse himself from anything Jan. 6-related when this is the kind of pillow talk he goes home to at night?"

    As for Alito, he was scorched for lying his way onto the court that led to his Dobbs's majority decision that gutted Roe v. Wade 17 years later.

    It’s in the majority opinion. Do you want to ignore it? Give us your take on what Justice O’Connor’s statement means.

    No hurry, but the case has come up. What is your take on the majority opinion's statement about a 25 year sunset ?

    I wasn't aware it would cause all affirmative action to cease to exist after 2022, has that been your impression?

    It was certainly not a strict sunset, more of a wish that it wouldn’t be necessary as society became more inclusive.

    Trash separating border families, Pootin stealing Ukrainian kids, SCOTUS destroying NA families: fascist hallmarks

    Clarence Thomas May Destroy Native Children’s Rights Based on a Lie

    On Wednesday, the Supreme Court will hear arguments inBrakeen v. Haalend,

    a case engineered to hobble the federal government’s power to protect Native communities from exploitation.

    The plaintiffs are asking the justices to invalidate the 44-year-old Indian Child Welfare Act,

    which prioritizes the placement of Native children in custody proceedings with Native families.

    But they’re also contesting a cons utional foundation of Indian law itself.

    Allying with Republican legal groups and lawmakers,

    the plaintiffs want to kneecap congressional authority to regulate tribes for the benefit of their own members.

    https://slate.com/news-and-politics/...alism-lie.html

    No non-Euro-white, non-male, non-Christian is safe from the white male supremacist fascist Repugs

    Whistleblower Confirms Conservative Justice Supreme Court Corruption

    letter to Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. and in interviews with The New York Times,

    the Rev. Rob Schenck said he was told the outcome of the 2014 case weeks before it was announced.

    He used that information to prepare a public relations push, records show, and

    he said that at the last minute he tipped off the president of Hobby Lobby,

    the craft store chain owned by Christian evangelicals that was the winning party in the case.


    The minister’s account comes at a time of rising concerns about the court’s legitimacy.

    A majority of Americans are losing confidence in the ins ution, polls show,

    and its approval ratings are at a historic low.

    Critics charge that the court has become increasingly politicized,

    especially as a new conservative supermajority holds sway.

    https://www.politicususa.com/2022/11...orruption.html

    My guess Alito is also the leaker of the abortion decison

    America is ed and un able. The fascist Capitalist oligarchy has won

    'Frankenstein's Monster':

    The Supreme Court's next big case can set the stage for more Trump chaos


    At issue is Moore v. Harper, which could set the stage for the

    implementation of the “Independent State Legislature Theory”

    that would have a wide-ranging impact on federal elections by allowing state legislatures to manipulate voting districts even more than they are doing so now.

    "Interest on the part of

    conservative SCOTUS justices in using ISLT to help Republican outcomes was seen in the 2000
    Bush v. Gore case,

    where then Chief Justice Rehnquist’s concurring opinion referenced ISLT

    in saying that another reason

    to stop the Florida Supreme Court from ordering a state-wide manual recount

    –which might have given the Presidency to Al Gore–was because

    the Florida Supreme Court was
    violating the Elections Clause,"

    https://www.rawstory.com/supreme-court-2658831933

    I would be not surprised if the fascist Catholic SCOTUS6 ruled ISLT to be Cons utional.

    Could be 5-4, with Roberts desperate to protect his legacy as "his" LOL court

    destroys American democracy, definitively.
