Who Died & Made the Supreme Court Queen?

  1. Denied Social Security benefits to the residents of Puerto Rico,
  2. Blocked a federal vaccine-or-test requirement,
  3. Denied detained immigrants bond hearings,
  4. Undermined tribal sovereignty,
  5. Allowed the CIA to withhold information about torture at black sites (a black site is a secret facility used by the U.S. as a prison and interrogation center, whose existence is denied by the government.)
  6. Entrenched Louisiana’s racially gerrymandered electoral maps
  7. Attacked the separation of church and state,
  8. Denied legal protections in the 100-mile border zone,
  9. Limited the rights of death row inmates,
  10. Overturned state-level concealed carry laws,
  11. Denied Miranda rights,
  12. Blocked the authority of federal agencies to safeguard public health and the environment, and…
  13. Overturned the constitutional right to an abortion.
  • Overturn the right to same-sex marriage
  • End affirmative action.
  • Allow state legislatures the right to set election rules, even if they were in conflict with that state’s constitution. And these rules would only be subject to review by the Supreme Court. This would allow a Republican state legislature to submit a slate of false electors — that is, electors who do not represent the will of the majority of the state voters. This was one of the schemes Trump tried in 2020. But he was stopped by state courts. But if the Supreme Court has its way, state courts would have no power in 2024. Only the Supremes would.
