US Supreme Court Decisions: Impactful Rulings & Their Implications

US Supreme Court Decisions: Impactful Rulings & Their Implications

US Supreme Court Decisions: A Beacon of Hope?

Trump v. United States: A Landmark Decision

In a time when good news seems scarce, the US Supreme Court has delivered some important decisions that could potentially empower the citizens to work towards restoring America. One such case is Trump v. United States. The Supreme Court ruled that both current and former presidents cannot be prosecuted for exercising their constitutional powers. Moreover, they are entitled to a presumptive immunity from prosecution for all official acts. This decision has been directed to be applied to the case against Donald Trump, led by Jack Smith.

City of Grants Pass v. Johnson: A Ruling on Homelessness

In another case, City of Grants Pass v. Johnson, the Supreme Court ruled that enforcing laws that regulate camping on public property does not constitute "cruel and unusual punishment" as prohibited by the Eighth Amendment. This means that laws prohibiting people from sleeping on public streets can be enforced against the homeless population.

Fischer v. United States: A Verdict on Obstruction of an Official Proceeding

In the case of Fischer v. United States, the Supreme Court ruled that the charge of obstruction of an official proceeding, used to prosecute and sentence hundreds of Americans for walking through the US Capitol building on January 6th, does not apply. This could potentially lead to freedom for many American political prisoners.

Loper Bright Enterprises v. Raimondo: Overturning Chevron Deference

In Loper Bright Enterprises v. Raimondo, the Supreme Court overturned a 40-year-old case known as Chevron that granted significant power to federal agencies. This case involved a family fishing company, Loper Bright Enterprises, that was being driven out of business because they couldn't afford the $700 per day they were being charged by the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) to monitor their company. The NMFS had been charging businesses for this service since 2013 without any legal authorization. This was possible because of the Chevron decision in 1984, which decided that regulatory agencies were the "experts" in their field, and the courts should defer to their "interpretation" of the law. This led to federal agencies being able to "interpret" laws to mean whatever they wanted, and the courts had to comply. This was known as Chevron Deference.

Understanding Chevron Deference

Chevron Deference allowed bureaucrats to take charge of the country. It is how the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) was able to decide that everyone who worked for a large company had to get vaccinated or be fired. It is how the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco Firearms and Explosives (ATF) was able to decide a piece of plastic was a "machine gun". It is how the USDA's Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) was able to decide that a small puddle is a "protected wetland". It is how out-of-control agencies have been able to create rules out of thin air, and force you to comply, and the courts had to simply defer to them, because they were the "experts". Chevron Deference was not only blatantly unconstitutional, it caused immeasurable harm to everyone. Thankfully, it’s now gone.
