Clarence Thomas just dropped a big hint about a major decision that will change everything

Fights over Supreme Court nominations have turned into the most brutal battles in American politics.

Democrats pulled every trick in the book to stop Brett Kavanaugh because they were afraid of what his confirmation would mean.

And now Clarence Thomas just dropped a big hint about a major decision that will change everything.

The U.S. Supreme Court issued a much talked about 5-4 ruling stating that states did in fact have a Constitutional right to sovereign immunity from lawsuits in the courts of other states.

But the big news in this case was the fact that the court was willing to throw out a 41-year-old precedent, as Clarence Thomas explained in his opinion.

The Washington Post reports:

The Supreme Court’s conservative majority overturned a 40-year-old precedent Monday, prompting a pointed warning from liberal justices about “which cases the court will overrule next.”

The issue in Monday’s 5-to-4 ruling was one of limited impact: whether states have sovereign immunity from private lawsuits in the courts of other states. In 1979, the Supreme Court ruled that there is no constitutional right to such immunity, although states are free to extend it to one another and often do.

But the court’s conservative majority overruled that decision, saying there was an implied right in the Constitution that means states “could not be haled involuntarily before each other’s courts,” in the words of Justice Clarence Thomas, who wrote Monday’s decision.

Thomas acknowledged the departure from the legal doctrine of stare decisis, in which courts are to abide by settled law without a compelling reason to overrule the decision.
Liberals panicked over this decision.

The left believes precedent is sacred because that allows Roe v. Wade to remain intact.

But if the conservative majority is willing to throw out 40-year-old decisions, many court-watchers wonder if Roe is on the chopping block.

    Robert: I like your post. We humans are supposed to be intelligent and be able to see the possible results and consequences of our actions, not like rabbits and chickens.

    And so they did!
    I guess history shouldn’t be discussed? We don’t want people to be made “uncomfortable” by what the Germans and Russians did in the 1940’s. We won’t teach it, and we will censor comments about it on the internet.
    I quoted legitimate sources, and cited each quote. I can’t believe it! I’ve never been censored before! For quoting historical facts? Not even an opinion.
    I guess opinions can be expressed but facts are harder to discredit so they can’t be allowed?

  3. Laurel says:

    Uh-oh, it looks like they are going to censor my post about the Holoc**** and Sta**n. I cited my quotes. I guess they don’t want people to know euthanasia could happen here just as in WWII.

    And you don’t belong on this site! Clearly he knows a lot more than you do, and he uses modern forms of communication to keep us informed. Would you rather he had Fireside Chats on the radio?
    Yes, dear, he does belong “being the President”. I’m guessing your Liberal pals are telling you that he doesn’t, but he was duly elected under the Constitution of our country. Period. God willing, he will be elected again in 2020! We had 8 years of Muslim Soetoro working hard to destroy everything we believed in: he had his turn. Now it is Trump’s turn, to restore what Hussein destroyed. If you don’t like our Constitution, our Rule of Law, or our President, stick out your thumb and head North to Canada. I’m sure you will love Mr. Trudeau.

    Back in the Dark Ages when I was a teen/young adult, it was left to each state to decide. I think that’s fair. If they won’t outlaw it at the Federal level, at least leave it up to the voters of each state to decide whether they want to commit genocide in their state or not. I don’t think if they chose to allow it they deserve Federal funding to pay for it either. Let each state bear that cost. The taxpayers at the state level might get tired of having their taxes pay for them. At the Federal level, that funding is so obscured by layers of bureaucracy that we don’t realize that our taxes are paying for them.
    Contrary to what the Liberals tell you, abortion is NOT a Constitutional right! Find me where it says that, and I’ll eat my hat, as the old saying goes. Or my husband’s hat, as I don’t wear one.

  6. Laurel says:

    Amen! That’s what I don’t get about Muslim immigrants. If Sharia worked so well in your home countries, what are you doing here? We don’t want it here. If you don’t like our way of life, GO HOME!

    Thank you, Crazy Horse! That whole thing stinks to high heaven! It makes me so angry to think about it. But he’s not the first: remember Mary Jo Kopoeckne? And Pope John Paul I? Some deaths just seem to go away quietly…when there are a lot of money and power involved. The families don’t even complain, that’s what I don’t get! If that was my family, they would have to kill me to shut me up. Remember Martha Moxley? Her mother never gave up until justice was done.

    We all know there is going to be a record epidemic of voter fraud in 2020, because the Democrats know none of their loser candidates can beat Trump. I’m sure Trump knows this, and as he seems to stay 2-3 steps ahead of his opponents, I’m sure he has taken steps to address this: my husband said maybe undercover poll-watchers?
    I don’t like Democrats, but their loser candidates really are Losers, and I would say that even if they were Republicans. Oh, yeah! The Republicans had a panel of real losers in 2016, with a few exceptions, Trump being one. I haven’t seen even one exception among the Democrats!

    There is no difference at all

    I don’t believe for a minute you are a real plumber. I know a lot of real plumbers and none of them are as stupid as your posts indicate you are. Of course, some of their helpers are that stupid so I suppose you could be the one who does the digging and work that doesn’t take skill or intelligence, but that’s about the extent of it!

  12. Pee Wee Black says:

    I suspect Linda feels guilty because she has had an abortion (or abortions) and doesn’t want to face the fact it was murder.

  13. Bill says:

    The only way I can see to approve an abortion is for the girl to be forced to get permission from her grandmother to kill the baby inside her. If Mema says yes then its a go, but we all know Gram will never in a million years agree to killing or murdering her own grandchild, that ain’t never gonna happen – period.

  14. John F Grychak says:

    YES! It’s time for Roe vs Wade to go BYE BYE. Almost 50 years, yes it’s time for it to go.

  15. Glenn says:

    Just because you don’t give a damn about a kids life, you think it is right to kill them ? Its you that does not know anything and don’t care about anybody . Remember what you say today, it may come back to bite you. Please do not have any kids, you don’t deserve any and they do not deserve you, for sure.

    Don’t forget to snip the jewels on the promiscuous men who engage in unprotected sex as well.
