ACB made the difference. Of course turn coat Roberts sided with the socialists.



Poor statists. They’ll have to “pack” the Supreme Court if they want to get their way now.
Why do they want to murder religious people?
Why does Cuomo want to murder people at other gatherings?
The case proves that the rules were different for religious gatherings versus non-religious gatherings and businesses.
Where does cuomo try to murder people at other gatherings?
He did a bang up job in old folks homes.....
He followed federal guidelines on dealing with overflowing hospitals. Too bad there wasn't a pandemic response team to correct things on the fly.

Who's fault was that?
There were plenty of hospital beds. And federal guidelines said nothing about forcing Kung Flu infected people into nursing homes, Dummy.

You mean the same meathead who barely used hospital ship in New York Harbor Trump sent him months ago?

New York enjoyed the second highest per capita death rate in the world this year....

What we have is a Christian Taliban who put churches above the law.
It seems pretty clear ...

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof."

Memorize it.
No one is preventing any worship. Only the form of it is being regulated. Churches have become super spreaders of the coronavirus.
Blm and antifa demonstrations spread more disease than anyone.

LATE-NIGHT SCOTUS RULING SAVES NY RELIGIOUS GROUPS FROM ONEROUS COVID RESTRICTIONS.

1606413316092.png

Anti- Religious Grandma Killer

SCOTUS Won’t Be Giving Andrew Cuomo Any Awards

The Supreme Court worked late going into the holiday weekend, ruling in favor of New York Roman Catholic and Orthodox Jewish groups that sued over the state’s COVID-19 limited religious service attendance rules.

Yahoo! News:
WASHINGTON (AP) — As coronavirus cases surge again nationwide the Supreme Court late Wednesday temporarily barred New York from enforcing certain attendance limits at houses of worship in areas designated as hard hit by the virus.
SCOTUS says No to Cuomo
The groups sued to challenge attendance limits at houses of worship in areas designated red and orange zones, where New York had capped attendance at 10 and 25 people, respectively. But the groups are now subject to less-restrictive rules because they’re now in areas designated yellow zones.
These zone situations can be fluid, so both groups may yet need this reprieve.

More importantly, this ruling puts the spotlight on the arbitrary nature of the actions of the petty tyrants, which don’t have anything to do with science:

From the SCOTUS ruling: "It is hard to believe that admitting more than 10 people to a 1,000–seat church or 400–seat synagogue would create a more serious health risk than the many other activities that the State allows."

Andrew Cuomo and Bill de Blasio have been among the worst of the tyrants, often targeting the Orthodox Jewish community. Their actions have definitely appeared to be more about religious persecution than public health policy.

Chief Justice John Roberts continued his express ride to David Souterland:
The justices split 5-4 to bar the state from enforcing the restrictions against the groups for now, with new Justice Amy Coney Barrett in the majority. It was the conservative’s first publicly discernible vote as a justice. The court’s three liberal justices and Chief Justice John Roberts dissented.
This court really isn’t going to be the 6-3 conservative majority that liberals have been fearing. Roberts simply can’t be trusted. It’s going to end up being more like a 5 1/2-3 1/2 conservative split, with each important decision being held hostage by Roberts’s inconsistent, fickle nature.

It's Thanksgiving Day morning and I’m thankful for President Trump, Mitch McConnell, and Amy Coney Barrett.

Studies have shown that if you are filled with self-righteous anger and hate that the Commie virus grants you a beneficial dispensation to loot, burn, riot, and assault.

SCOTUS RULES AGAINST CUOMO’S 10 PERSON CAP AT CHURCHES/SYNAGOUGES. “Even in a pandemic, the Constitution cannot be put away and forgotten.

The regulations cannot be viewed as neutral because they single out houses of worship for especially harsh treatment.1 In a red zone, while a synagogue or church may not admit more than 10 persons, businesses categorized as “essential” may admit as many people as they wish. And the list of “essential” businesses includes things such as acupuncture facilities, campgrounds, garages, as well as many whose services are not limited to those that can be regarded as essential, such as all plants manufacturing chemicals and microelectronics and all transportation facilities.

The disparate treatment is even more striking in an orange zone. While attendance at houses of worship is limited to 25 persons, even non-essential businesses may decide for themselves how many persons to admit. These categorizations lead to troubling results. At the hearing in the District Court, a health department official testified about a large store in Brooklyn that could “literally have hundreds of people shopping there on any given day.” Yet a nearby church or synagogue would be prohibited from allowing more than 10 or 25 people inside for a worship service. And the Governor has stated that factories and schools have contributed to the spread of COVID–19, but they are treated less harshly than the Diocese’s churches and Agudath Israel’s synagogues, which have admirable safety records.

Because the challenged restrictions are not “neutral” and of “general applicability,” they must satisfy “strict scrutiny,” and this means that they must be “narrowly tailored” to serve a “compelling” state interest.

Stemming the spread of COVID–19 is unquestionably a compelling interest, but it is hard to see how the challenged regulations can be regarded as “narrowly tailored.” They are far more restrictive than any COVID–related regulations that have previously come before the Court, much tighter than those adopted by many other jurisdictions hard-hit by the pandemic, and far more severe than has been shown to be required to prevent the spread of the virus at the applicants’ services. The District Court noted that “there ha[d] not been any COVID–19 outbreak in any of the Diocese’s churches since they reopened,” and it praised the Diocese’s record in combatting the spread of the disease. It found that the Diocese had been constantly “ahead of the curve, enforcing stricter safety protocols than the State required.” Similarly, Agudath Israel notes that “[t]he Governor does not dispute that [it] has rigorously implemented and adhered to all health protocols and that there has been no outbreak of COVID–19 in [its] congregations.”

Just as President Obama said, these troglodytes will bitterly cling to their "sky daddy" like snowflakes rather than use theri brains. Religion is one of the silly old traditions of mankind that we need to eradicate if we are ever going to find have true progress.
Your brand of totalitarian hate is unconstitutional. The Trump Court just bitch slapped the anti-religious haters. That's just the warm up. You can look forward to a steady diet of ass-kickings until you learn to respect the rights of your fellow citizens.

The original justification for mandates was that there was a compelling reason for emergency powers to SLOW the spread of a probable pandemic. In has never been proven that the measures taken stop the spread or prevent the spread of the disease. The mandates were an emergency measure expected to last 30 days. Mandates are not laws and even if they were they could not be allowed to generally supersede the rights granted by the Constitution. If someone expects me to give credence to mandates someone has to prove that an emergency exists and that the measures mandated are necessary to address the situation. That hasn't happened so fuggum.

March Study Points to Pervasive Mental Illness Among White American Left.

1606421982965.png

Survey data from a March Pew poll indicates that white liberals disproportionately suffer from mental illness.

Nearly half of self-identifying white liberals between the ages of 18 and 29 reported telling a doctor or a healthcare provider that they have a mental health condition.

Only 20.9% of white conservatives in the same category reported as such.

1606422078499.png

Answers on disclosing mental health conditions varied considerably by race, even in the “very liberal” category of poll respondents. 19% of “very liberal” Americans who didn’t identify as white reported disclosing a mental health condition to a healthcare provider, and a whopping 38% of “very liberal” White Americans reported doing so.

1606422199114.png

The more white and more Left wing, the more mental derangement.

Young Left Wing White Women Dominate The Mentally Ill Cohort

A strong majority of self-identifying white female liberals between ages 18-29 reported a history of a doctor diagnosing them with a mental health condition, much more so than any queried demographic.

This guy is such a farking idiot, lol


During a Thanksgiving Day conference call with reporters, Cuomo said the order was moot because the religious institutions involved in the lawsuit are no longer in designated red and orange zones in Queens and Brooklyn - therefore the restrictions, capping attendance at houses of worship - no longer apply.
"The Supreme Court made a ruling. It’s more illustrative of the Supreme Court than anything else," said Cuomo (via the NY Post), while knocking the Supreme Court's (arguably) conservative bias given the addition of Justice Amy Coney Barrett.
"It’s irrelevant of any practical impact because of the zone they were talking about is moot. It expired last week," he added. "It doesn’t have any practical effect."
"The lawsuit was about the Brooklyn zone. The Brooklyn zone no longer exists as a red zone. That’s muted. So that restriction is no longer in effect. That situation just doesn’t exist because those restrictions are gone."
#BREAKING: Gov. Andrew Cuomo responds to Supreme Court blocking restrictions on houses of worship: "I fully respect religion. There’s a time in life when we need it, the time is now, but we want to make sure we keep people safe at the same time." pic.twitter.com/TGef6sM2nQ
— The Hill (@thehill) November 26, 2020

The Supreme Court late Wednesday blocked New York officials from limiting religious gatherings, a win for Orthodox Jews who had sued over restrictions imposed during the COVID-19 pandemic.
"Members of this Court are not public health experts, and we should respect the judgment of those with special expertise and responsibility in this area," the majority opinion said.
"But even in a pandemic, the Constitution cannot be put away and forgotten. The restrictions at issue here, by effectively barring many from attending religious services, strike at the very heart of the First Amendment’s guarantee of religious liberty."
The SCOTUS making a Constitutional ruling is irrelevant because the New York goobernator is too stupid to realize it limits his future actions and other Nazi goobernators as well by implication.

Good. If there is going to be a limit on such gatherings, then the gatherings of the BLM riots need to also be limited.

I am not seeing the democrat tyrants interested in that so fuck them.

The hospital ship that was under orders not to admit covid patients?
If you read the link, you would understand WHY the 1,000 bed hospital ship was there, it was to make it easier for the hospitals to handle COVID-2019 patients much better.
