Gorsuch, Roberts Join With Liberals to Molotov Traditional America

The "conservative" Supreme Court is uniting with the radical left to burn traditional America to the ground.

From LifeSite, "US Supreme Court votes 6-3 to redefine 'sex,' write transgenderism into 1964 law":
Republican-appointed Justices John Roberts and Neil Gorsuch joined the U.S. Supreme Court's liberals Monday in ruling that longstanding anti-discrimination law should be reinterpreted to cover homosexuality and gender confusion, in a case that will have drastic ramifications on religious liberty and force Americans to adopt a "fluid" understanding of biological sex in scores of policies.

Gorsuch, President Donald Trump's first addition to the nation's highest court, wrote the majority opinion for the 6-3 ruling, which concluded that "sex discrimination" in Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act should be interpreted to mean sexual orientation and gender identity, in addition to its original biological meaning.

The case consolidated several suits into one, including that of a Christian funeral home that fired a male employee who insisted on dressing as a woman on the job; a skydiving instructor who was fired after informing a customer he was gay; and a county child welfare services coordinator who was fired after his employer learned he was gay.

"Today, we must decide whether an employer can fire someone simply for being homosexual or transgender," Gorsuch wrote. "The answer is clear. An employer who fires an individual for being homosexual or transgender fires that person for traits or actions it would not have questioned in members of a different sex. Sex plays a necessary and undisguisable role in the decision, exactly what Title VII forbids."
A California man was just fired from a wealth management firm because his wife called the police on someone she suspected of vandalism.

Odds are slim to none this court would invent a new rule to protect workers' freedom of speech.
The majority's reasoning flies in the face of both the plain statutory meaning of "sex" in 1964 and the clear legislative intent of the lawmakers who drafted and passed the Civil Rights Act, as explained by Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) senior counsel John Bursch. "There is little dispute that, in 1964, the term ‘sex' was publicly understood, as it is now, to mean biological sex: male and female," he writes. "After all, the term ‘gender identity' wasn't even part of the American lexicon at the time. Its first use was at a European medical conference in 1963. And no semblance of it appeared in federal law until 1990."

But Gorsuch's opinion panned the notion of authorial intent, a bedrock principle of judicial originalism, by declaring that judges "are not free to overlook plain statutory commands on the strength of nothing more than suppositions about intentions or guesswork about expectations. In Title VII, Congress adopted broad language making it illegal for an employer to rely on an employee's sex when deciding to fire that employee."
Indeed, "sex" is whatever progressive liberals decided it was yesterday.
Justices Samuel Alito and Clarence Thomas dissented, panning the majority opinion as "legislation" written under the "deceptive" guise of "interpreting a statute," reminding the majority that the court's duty "is limited to saying what the law is" rather than adding to it.

Trump's other appointee, Justice Brett Kavanaugh, wrote his own dissenting opinion, in which he noted that the "responsibility to amend Title VII belongs to Congress and the President in the legislative process, not to this Court."

Kavanaugh also wrote, however, that the majority opinion represented an "important victory achieved today by gay and lesbian Americans," who "advanced powerful policy arguments," displayed "extraordinary vision, tenacity, and grit," and "can take pride in today's result"... "notwithstanding my concern about the Court's transgression of the Constitution's separation of powers."
It's going to take tenacity and grit for traditional Americans to survive this top-down color revolution.
Conservatives warn that today's ruling will not merely protect homosexual or gender-confused Americans from tangible harm. Rather, it will require churches to recognize same-sex "marriages"; force photographers, florists, and bakers to participate in same-sex "weddings"; compel employers to fund drugs and surgeries to help people imitate members of the opposite sex; and make women and girls to share sleeping quarters, showers, changing areas, and restrooms with gender-confused males (or men simply claiming trans status to get close to vulnerable women).

"The core issue before the Court in this case was whether it is within the legitimate power of judges to suddenly redefine the meaning of words and rewrite a 55-year-old statute. Sadly, the Court answered in the affirmative," commented Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council.
Merriam-Webster changed the definition of "racism" after one woman complained and the Supreme Court has now changed the definition of "sex."

They're just getting started.

From the LA Times, "California's 'sanctuary' cities rules stay in place after Supreme Court rejects Trump's challenge":
The Supreme Court on Monday refused to hear the Trump administration's challenge to a California "sanctuary" law, leaving intact rules that prohibit law enforcement officials from aiding federal agents in taking custody of immigrants as they are released from jail.

Only Justices Clarence Thomas and Samuel A. Alito Jr. voted to hear the administration's appeal.

The court's action is a major victory for California in its long-running battle with President Trump.

At issue was a clash between federal power and states' rights.

The Trump administration's challenge was launched by former Atty. Gen. Jeff Sessions. He insisted California was unconstitutionally interfering with federal immigration enforcement. But the Supreme Court, in a decision written by the late Justice Antonin Scalia, has said state and local officials are not obliged to carry out federal enforcement. That state's rights doctrine appears to have prevailed. Even Trump's two appointees — Justice Neil M. Gorsuch and Brett M. Kavanaugh — refused to hear the administration's appeal.

From CNBC, "Supreme Court decides not to hear big gun-rights cases, dealing blow to Second Amendment activists":
The Supreme Court on Monday said it will not hear appeals of a slew of cases involving gun laws, dealing a blow to Second Amendment activists who seek to expand the rights of gun owners.

In an order released Monday morning, the court denied petitions for appeals of 10 cases.

The cases rejected by the court involved questions of whether laws banning interstate handgun sales in some cases violate the Second Amendment, whether there is a constitutional right to carry a firearm outside the home for self-defense, if Illinois and Massachusetts can ban assault rifles and large-capacity ammunition magazines, and whether a state can limit handgun permits to people who demonstrate a specific need for self-defense.

The denials comes just weeks after the justices declined to issue a substantive opinion in its first Second Amendment case in nearly a decade.

In that case, over a since-repealed New York City handgun regulation, the court said the controversy was no longer active because the measure had been amended by the city.

But several of the court's conservatives, Justices Samuel Alito, Neil Gorsuch and Clarence Thomas, wrote that they would still have sided with the gun owners challenging the law.

Justice Brett Kavanaugh, who sided with the majority in the case, urged his colleagues to take another Second Amendment case "soon."
It's probably a good time to relook at Charles Murray's advice to move to small town America to survive the coming collapse.

Right-wingers need to either flee the cities or fight to form our own CHAZ.
