  • Supreme Court clears way for Trump admin to use Defense funds for border wall construction

    The Supreme Court on Friday cleared the way for the Trump administration to use $2.5 billion from the Department of Defense to construct parts of a wall along the southwestern border that the government argues is necessary to protect national security.

    The decision allows the Defense Department money to be spent now while a court battle plays out over whether the government had the authority to divert funds that were not appropriated for the wall. The Supreme Court voted 5-4, along ideological lines, to allow the funds to be used while the court appeals proceed.
    In a brief order, the court said that it was ruling in favor of the Trump administration before the litigation has played out because the government had made a "sufficient showing" that the challengers did not have the legal right to bring the case.

    And yet another pillar of constitutional government falls. Between Mitch and Donnie collaborating to stack the court, all three branches are now marching unilaterally against popular opinion.

    fuck.
    They speak in bulletpointese leftist nutjob drivel. It doesn't matter. Nothing is as great a motivator as the chance to truly be free.

          Every one of those justices should have voted the opposite way based on their political philosophy, but instead voted based on the political situation.
