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.

    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.

  2. 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.

  3. Frankie says:

    Lady its not YOUR BODY ITS A CHILD INSIDE OF YOU how stupid of you not too consider the baby our are you the kind that uses abortion for birth control !!

  4. Bill Liberty says:

    I think we aren’t going far enough. We should extend abortions up to the age of 19. For those apposed tell me the difference between a baby living and breathing on a hospital gerny and an 18 year old living and breathing in front of the TV ??????????

  5. Nosey4News says:

    I heard on radio, the number is 120,000 that the Pentagon is considering not 12,000. President said that was fake news. If he was going to be sending g troops, it would be alot more than 120,000.

  6. Joe the Plumber says:

    Thomas is George Walker Bush’s worst legacy, a totally unprepared justice at age 41 when picked, abused his co-worker and cried high tech lynching in an all make judiciary hearing. In all the hundreds of hearings he has said virtually nothing, about two years ago after 10 years of never speaking he tried to crack a stupid joke.

    • merryinfidel says:

      All you libs better wash your cryin’ towels ’cause Clarence is gonna lead the charge that repeals Roe vs Wade!!!

    • sluggo says:

      Admit it, Joe…you racist democrats are still mad that we set your slaves free. Clarence Thomas has been a fine judge.

    • Robert says:

      … and she couldn’t get enough of it, could she? (Remember?) She then followed Thomas from EEOC to DOJ; and if that weren’t enough, afterward at the University of Oklahoma she volunteered her personal service as chauffeur to Clarence Thomas when he came to speak at the university to/fro the local airport.
      Anita really showed her outrage here now, didn’t she? Could it be that she hopped up in GHWBush’s time because Thomas had married someone else, and someone white, at that? Now there’s an offence which certainly can never be forgiven!

      • Hal s.Dumas says:

        Very true….are we the public dumb enough to believe there wasn’t more personal anger behind Anita’s testimony against Thomas

      • The Real M says:

        Robert, Oh, big old “ouch”! You really put the hurt on Joe the “plunger” with that excellent comment! I agree completely, thank you.

  7. The Real M says:

    In the future as cases come before SCOTUS that have been ruled on at some point by liberal courts and are in direct conflict and violation of The Constitution, the decision should be reversed and corrected no matter how long a precedence! Liberal courts for years have not judged according to the law as written rather, they made up the law as they went along to agree with the liberal ideology. This is wrong and I pray the conservative leaning SCOTUS will judge fairly and base their findings and opinions on The Constitution and the rule of law. It could take unknown years to right the wrongs that have been perpetrated on our Constitution, the law and the American people.

    Why is it that liberals have never been able to be fair in ANYTHING they do. They think it is owed to them for everything to be in their favor. They are the same as “big bullies on the playground” thinking they can play dirty, win, and we are all supposed to accept and like it because they are bigger and meaner than we are! Not any more, there is a new game in town and it’s called “be fair or be gone”, they decide!

    • Laurel says:

      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!

      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.

  11. dick says:

    I would like to see the rules changed regarding Planned Parenthood and use of federal or state funding for abortions. If any government monies are used the mother MUST be sterilized at the same time. That would cut back on future abortions.

    • Lori H says:

      great idea!

    • Mike says:

      Fact is, the liberals are afraid that the conservative judges are going to eliminate legislating from the bench and go after all decisions that didn’t follow the constitution. I wish the libs would just move to a country that has laws they like and quit trying to change ours. This is one of the only countries in the history of the world that doesn’t stop you from leaving. To all who don’t like our constitution, don’t let the door hit you in the ass on the way out.

    I voted no, but I would like to see Roe vs Wade over turned. I just don’t think it will be. It’s the moral thing to do.

    • Sue Breslin says:

      I voted No also, but would like to see the tenants of it changed, to where it would be allowed in EMERGENCY situations. Just like everything else, Americans tend to go to far with certain liberties creating a situation such as this. Abortion has gone too far where a life does not matter anymore and responsibility for your actions mean nothing.

  13. Hal Lemoyne says:

    Will the Supreme Court overturn Roe v. Wade??

    YES

    • Davew says:

      They might tone it down a bit but I don’t think they will do a 180* reversal.

      • Laurel says:

        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.

  14. Toni says:

    I see where someone else commented on the fact that any reasonable girl/woman can access all the birth control products they want to avoid conception in most encounters. If they choose not to use anything or insist that their partner not use protection with the additional use of spermicide jelly, then they have given up their right to “control their bodies”. A fetus is a baby, not a “blob of tissue” like they want and teach you to believe. It is capable of knowing when something is going to attack it’s life by resisting the instruments used to destroy it by trying to get away. Just think about that. That “blob of tissue” knows that it’s being brutally attacked and killed.

    • A Fetus is a Live Being and a whether its 6 mo., 9 mo., 1 yr or1yr plus 1 day and if anyone agrees that is OK to terminate this being – then what is the difference of terminating the Girl that opted for Abortion , or the Doctor who performed same or the Politician that came up with the Law ??? Hell they even protect Animals ??

  15. Edward Olivares says:

    Roe v Wade was a disgrace to the SCOTUS, and a disgrace to the USA, because it legalized and made a right, the murdering with malice aforethought a living human being (after the sixth week when the heart starts beating) who is helpless and innocent! All involved, from the woman who asks for or is pressured into having an abortion by parents or boy friend, is guilty of murder and will be punished, if not in this life, in the next , unless they repent, and work exceedingly hard the rest of their lives to save other infants from the same crime, a Mortal SIN! God is loving, but He is also just. The 6th Commandment states Thou shall not murder! And the penalty for the unrepentant is an eternity of suffering in HELL!

  16. Linda says:

    I don’t think the Government has the right to tell woman what they can do with their Bodies, The Government needs to stop getting in to People’s lives.

    • Porkus says:

      Linda – the government is not telling women what to do with their bodies. Most of the time, the women have voluntarily used their own bodies and became pregnant. There is a separate body involved here, and that is the body of the baby. If the government were to prohibit abortion, it would be to protect the body and life of the baby – not to interfere with the voluntary choice of the woman, which she has already made.

      • CrazyHorse says:

        Absolutely correct! Abortion is the remedy for a woman’s carelessness while doing what she wants with HER body.

    • merryinfidel says:

      The government isn’t telling her what she can or can’t do to her own body. They’re telling her that she can’t MURDER her unborn child. Big difference…

    • Sylvia Croft says:

      Linda, We aren’t talking about the woman’s body. A baby has a completely separate body that belongs to them. You are killing a separate person when you kill a baby in the womb. They are just dependent on you for a while till they can take care of themselves or someone else can. Would you think it is all right to not feed an elderly person who is depending on you for survival and let them starve to death?

          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.

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.

    I just read an article under the headlines White HOUSE reportedly has plan to send 12,000 Troops to the MIDDLE EAST Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan ordered by a group of Administration hardliners led by National Security Advise John Bolton. Farther in the article you read where it says that the reporter isn’t sure if they inform the President, I got news for that on line paper those people doesn’t do anything without OUR COMMANDER IN CHIEF ORDERS IT FIRST. if IT WAS IN 1995 OR 2015 The headline would of read Our Commander In Chief President Clinton or Commander In Chief President Obama Order Troops To Be Sent To The Middle East. Then in the story that reporter would have praised them over and over again. What a disgraceful justice that is be handed out by the deep state in Washington DC and certain members of the Media

    • trapperwv1 says:

      Do you even realize that 12000 troops is probably the numbers of personnel on board the carrier fleet and support ships not to mention the number of troops sent to man the Patriot batteries that have been sent in a defensive posture. The Iranian regime is a religious zealot run operation that cannot be trusted to be up front and since our fleet is in international water they have zero control. If the Iranians or their cohorts attempt to strike at our forces we need to have our forces nearby to make a decisive counter strike and destroy their capabilities.

  21. Robert says:

    Every female in this country has the right to control her body – she also has access to multiple forms of birth control in every drug store – hence, every female is “Pro Choice” to create or not create life – if you choose to create life, you are then responsible for the outcome of your choice – if you then choose to eliminate that life – that is your choice. But, you are also responsible and accountable for your choice. You choose to have an abortion – then pay for it yourself – you chose to create it . Do not expect we taxpayers to pay for your choice – after all, you chose to not prevent the creation of that life. After choosing to create that life – you are hypocritical to then choose to eliminate that life – months later when you realize – “Gee, it is moving – Yes, growing – thriving – a living life” and then “I guess I need an abortion” – because maybe you are angry with “HIM” for getting you pregnant. Maybe, if you knew you would be responsible and accountable for choosing that abortion and having to pay for it yourself – then maybe, you would choose to not create that life in the first place. ROE V. WADE should be overturned – We taxpayers should not be held captive – paying for your abortion – just because you chose to not prevent the creation of life.

    • art facteau says:

      Truthfully, R v. W is based on a lie, the woman involved in the case came out along time ago (you won’t hear about this on the news anytime soon) and said that she was misled and bullied into saying some of the stuff she said, and has ever since been pro life. That alone should get the case overturned.
      That being said, doctors and scientists have been saying for years, and have proven, that life begins at the moment of conception. That would seem to end the argument right there.

    • The Real Joe the Plumber says:

      I think if men like you castrated yourself women have to worry about getting pregnant. There is a good saying if men could get pregnant abortion would be a sacrament. No abortions are paid with federal funds, most women do regret getting pregnant unexpectedly and even often regret getting abortions but have to live with that, you don’t. Few men regret having their girlfriends of one night stands getting abortions do they? The right wing needs to stay out of women’s bodies and morality because backing Trump shows most of them have no values, as he is a serial sexual assaulter, a thief, a constant liar, braggart, insulter who has cheated on all 3 wives and paid off the women he used in many cases. He kisses Putin’s and Kim’s bums. You must be proud you elected the least qualified and least humane person ever elected.

    • Joe the Plumber says:

    • Jeanine Kincheloe says:

      Roe is false on all counts. SCOTUS does not write law and never can. The fact that they invented the “judicial supremacy” violates our Constitution. It is all a lie. Obergefell, the so-called right to homosexual marriage is also a lie. Only an opinion by the court that holds itself higher than the actual Constitution—when the Constitution clearly says, “This Constitution Shall be the Supreme Law of the Land.”

      THEY CANNOT WRITE LAW, and neither exists in the Congressional Register as law.
