Donald Trump expected Amy Coney Barrett to cement a conservative majority that struck down the radical left’s unconstitutional and un-American policies.
Trump never in a million years thought Barrett would turn on him.
But Amy Coney Barrett hit Donald Trump with some bad news with one courtroom stunner.
Donald Trump opposes vaccine mandates.
Trump’s defended Americans’ freedom to choose what goes into their bodies by opposing Joe Biden’s scheme to jam needles into the arms of every American for no other reason than to impose social control on the population.
But not Amy Coney Barrett.
For the second time Justice Barrett stabbed her fellow Christians in the back and joined Justice Stephen Breyer in rejecting a legal challenge brought by Maine health care workers to Maine’s vaccine mandate.
Justice Barrett previously rejected a legal challenge by a Washington florist targeted by the state for refusing to provide arrangements for homosexual weddings because of her sincerely held Christian faith.
Maine’s vaccine mandate refused to include a religious exemption.
Justice Barrett was joined by fellow so-called “conservative” Justices Brett Kavanaugh and John Roberts in forcing Christians to choose between their faith or feeding their families.
Barrett wrote that she could not grant an injunction blocking the mandate because the appeal came via the emergency docket which did not allow for oral arguments.
The actual conservatives on the Supreme Court – Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito and Neil Gorsuch – tore their turncoat colleagues’ ruling to shreds.
Justice Thomas, Gorsuch and Alito wrote in their dissent that laws that single out religious beliefs are clearly illegal.
“The First Amendment protects the exercise of sincerely held religious beliefs. Laws that single out sincerely held religious beliefs or conduct based on them for sanction are ‘doubtless . . . unconstitutional,’” the dissent read.
The conservatives also argued the Maine vaccine mandate was illegal because the requirement provided for medical exemptions – and all that was required was a note from a doctor saying the vaccine was not advisable with no explanation necessary – but not religious exemptions.
“Under this Court’s precedents, a law fails to qualify as generally applicable, and thus triggers strict scrutiny, if it creates a mechanism for ‘individualized exemptions,’” the conservatives wrote.
“That description applies to Maine’s regulation. The State’s vaccine mandate is not absolute; individualized are available, but only if they invoke certain preferred (nonreligious) justifications. Under Maine law, employees can avoid the vaccine mandate if they produce a ‘written statement’ from a doctor or other care provider indicating that immunization ‘may be’ medically inadvisable,” the dissent added.
The conservatives added that a ruling just last year struck down church capacity limits because the law did not apply to secular businesses.
“Strict scrutiny applies to Maine’s vaccine mandate for another related reason. This Court has explained that a law is not neutral and generally applicable if it treats ‘any comparable secular activity more favorably than religious exercise,’” the dissenting justices wrote.
Justice Barrett proved to be a massive disappointment.
Barrett looks more like a David Souter or John Roberts than Clarence Thomas or Antonin Scalia.
Justice Barrett helped invent new law to uphold Obamacare for a third time.
Barrett’s repeatedly voted to allow the government to discriminate against religious Americans.
Donald Trump said he doesn’t have any second thoughts about appointing Barrett and Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.
But as Barrett and Kavanaugh continually sellout Trump and his base that may change.
