Supreme Court opens momentous term on Monday. With the usurpation of the government by hostile Republican forces, and the installation of a puppet jurist in Neil Gorsuch, the Supreme Court is poised to undo most Constitutional protections for Americans this term. Expect Gorsuch to push Revanchist themes on voting, homosexual rights, and trial protections. He's enamored of the police state and theocracy and virulent anti-union. Just How Conservative Was Neil Gorsuch’s First Term? - fivethirtyeight. Justice Neil Gorsuch delivering as Trump's promised conservative - CNN. Expect the worst, then be prepared to be surprised when your imagination was too tame.

Thankfully, Justice Gorsuch will, at long last, restore the Almighty to His central place in our country's law and culture. Only after such a moral rejuvenation can we expect the Almighty to spare us from His wrath. So many disasters are no coincidences. We must return to a state of grace, or we will most assuredly be as devastated as Gomorrah.

I don't think he is any worse than Scalia was. We're back in 4:4 territory with Kennedy as the swing vote again, and Kennedy has surprised us several times. Don't forget that Roberts actually voted to keep some ACA provisions.

Oh, Gorsuch is worse than Scalia. You'll see soon enough.

I can't recall when I agreed with any position of Scalia's. I don't expect I'll agree with any position of Gorsuch's. Maybe Scalia had a flair for writing wrong opinions so many people who disagreed could admire the writing and Gorsuch has no such ability.

Is Gorsuch such a conman his opinions can infect the opinions of the other justices so much as to yield different results? They have been there for years and decades longer. We'll see. He has still just one vote.

Besides, when enough people realize that the Russians have been setting us against each other on purpose for years, there could be a great reset. Trump and all of his appointments could be impeached when we start over minus the Russian manipulation. Republican embrace of the Manchurian Candidate might destroy the Party, after the many years of being the dis-loyal opposition (another Russian invention?).
