o, the upshot on the citizenship question is that the KEY issue of the 5th Amendment was approved by the whole court. This is odd, that the libs didn't try to kill the case on those grounds, but now it's out of the way forever. Roberts sided with the conservatives on that. Where he sided with the liberals was on the procedural issue of the reasoning of the Commerce Department. He then went on to urge Commerce to rewrite the justification along the lines of, "all citizens of all districts need to be protected in their one-man-one-vote" status. Then, he indicated, the Court would uphold it. If the libs had held up the 5th Amendment clause, there is no way this would be done by Oct. As is, the Commerce Dept can turn this around right away. Big win, I think. On the gerrymandering, this essentially upheld the R Wisconsin legislature's redrawn map. Lib bloggers are exploding right now, so this was probably bigger than the citizenship question. Yertle got another circuit court judge throu

Yertle got another circuit court judge through cloture. Vote today or immediately upon the end of the break.

USSC also agreed to hear DACA in the spring, meaning the decision will come about this time next year . . . right during the election.

Now, if only Buzzi were to assume room temperature, and Trump get a third USSC Justice pick, we would be on afterburners.
