. Az Immigration law (6-3 upheld)

That result is not possible, since Elena Kagan has recused herself from the decision. It could be 5-3 or 6-2. If it is 4-4, AZ loses.

I bet we’re getting screwed on all of them, including the Stolen Valor Act. I dunno why that’s before them, though.

How is it possible a Supreme Court Justice is basically voting ‘present’ on a decision. Who does she think she is, B. Hussein Obama?

Kagan had to recuse herself since she helped the administration fight S.B 1070 as Solicitor General prior to her nomination.

Amazingly enough. The Supreme Court has 5 Justices that were chosen by Republican President and only 3 by Democrats. We should be winning everything that is for the Constitution but unfortunately our Republican Presidents are just as bad if not worse than the Democratic Presidents when picking Justices.

1. Az Immigration law. (5-3 in favor of AZ and the rule of law)

2a. Heathcare Mandate. (7-2 against Obama, in favor of individual freedom)

2b. Heathcare Servability. (5-4 against, the whole corrupt mess comes down, but I’m not confident in this prediction)

3. Stolen Valor Act. (7-2 against, they’ll say it’s a Free Speech issue)

Based on the proven fact that SCOTUS makes decisions based in international law rather than Constitutional law, and in light of the Kenyan all but telling them which way to decide, We The People will lose each of them.

The only one who is wild card is Kennedy (Reagan - 1987).

The rest are solid

Thomas (Bush 41)

Scalia (Reagan)

Alito and Roberts (Bush 43)

No, they always under the pirate Roberts have a well chewed bone to toss out to the sheepel with the other usurpations of our sovereignty. The black-robed oligarchs are never quite that obvious as to rule against the people on all issued rulings in a given cycle. They select which will be the appeasement bone before taking the cases don’tchaknow.

Sorry to say, Paulson leading Bush around by the nose at the end of his term means Bush worked for the globalists but under the radar, so Roberts was a globalist selection and will rule and run the court accordingly.

Thanks for that heads up. If HC is announced today, that will have as much impact on the markets (not to mention our lives) than the elections or G20. Very busy week.

We want SCOTUS to rule against severability, right? That would mean the whole thing gets shot down?

They will rule against ALL that are common sense, Constitutional, and Conservative, with Kennedy voting with the Socialist/Progressives planted on the Court. We may get a “token” Finding on the Stolen Valor Act, but I expect the illegals to keep coming freely, State’s Rights to be squashed, AND, the continued Government Takeover of Private Businesses (TOTALLY Un-Constitutional) to continue using the tortured readings of “The Commerce Clause”, as usual.

My concern is not so much the Court ruling against the mandate and/or severability, but will the Kenyan simply ignore the ruling and proceed anyway? And, if so, will the Repubs finally grow a pair and confront him?

“... will the Kenyan simply ignore the ruling and proceed anyway?” He is already doing that! The amnesty without Congressional authorization is precisely that. The only question is, did he do it to steal the thunder coming when the Pirate Roberts Court rejects AZ law, or did he do it to be ‘in your face’ for them upholding what his Just Us department wanted canceled? I suspect as a malignant narcissist he knew the AZ law was about to be overturned and wanted to steal the thunder for political gain.

I hope the GOP have contingency plans based upon Obama’s Predicted Contingency plans...

I don’t know why they are waiting to start impeachment over a number of actions already though, so that’s the real question...

I think that was Scalia, and his point was that the Court will not and should not be responsible for going through the bill line-by-line to determine what is salvageable and what is not; in other words, if the mandate is overturned, the whole house of cards should collapse and Congress needs to start over.
