The John Roberts “Progressive Factor” has been neutralized…for now.
Roberts, who many believe is being blackmailed by the Deep State, once again disgraced his so-called “conservative principles” and voted with the Democrat communists and against the American people, but thankfully the five real conservatives voted for the American people and the Constitution and nullified Roberts.
Here’s what went down:
The Supreme Court late Wednesday night granted requests from the Roman Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn and two Orthodox Jewish synagogues to block enforcement of a New York executive order restricting attendance at houses of worship. Both the diocese and the synagogues claimed that the executive order violated the right to the free exercise of religion guaranteed by the First Amendment, particularly when secular businesses in the area are allowed to remain open. Wednesday’s orders by a closely divided Supreme Court, which had turned down two similar requests over the summer by churches in California and Nevada, represented a clear rightward shift on the court since Justice Amy Coney Barrett replaced Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died in September.
Five conservative justices – Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh and Barrett – sided with the religious groups and blocked the attendance limits. Chief Justice John Roberts, along with Justices Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan, dissented.
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a Democrat, issued the executive order at the center of both disputes in October. As part of the state’s effort to combat COVID-19, the executive order and an initiative that it implements identify clusters of COVID-19 cases and then take action to prevent the virus from spreading. An area immediately around a cluster is known as a “red” zone, where attendance at worship services is limited to 10 people. The area around a “red” zone is known as an “orange” zone; attendance at worship services there is limited to 25 people. “Yellow” zones surround “orange” zones; attendance there is limited to 50% of the building’s maximum capacity.
Things got so hairy with this case, that Justice Gorsuch lashed out at Cheif Justice Roberts by pointing out that he has “no core beliefs.”
Chief Justice Roberts is now so obviously a disgrace that even Justice Gorsuch can't help but point out that Roberts has no core beliefs. https://t.co/brzhdYUxfx

Here’s some of what occured between Gorsuch and Roberts:
A testy Gorsuch-Roberts tiff in the opinions tonight. Gorsuch lays on the sanctimony, accusing the four dissenters of letting the Constitution wither on the vine just because it’s a pandemic. Roberts isn’t happy being characterized that way—and defends his liberal colleagues too.
Roberts further defends himself from Gorsuch’s attacks in the closing paragraphs of his dissent.
Hard to tell if Gorsuch was aiming to troll Roberts or Cuomo harder in his concurrence.
Thank the Good Lord that President Trump and Mitch McConnell got Amy Coney Barret on the bench as quickly as they did.
If she wasn’t there, the communists would have won this round, thanks to disgraceful turncoat, John Roberts – who, at this point, should just be referred to as a “liberal judge.”
