At the Supreme Court, an uptick in unanimity

For the first time under Chief Justice John Roberts, the high court will complete its term June 30 with more than half the cases decided unanimously. Just five years ago, fewer than one-third of the cases carried that distinction.

Most agree the trend is a result of the cases themselves, rather than any fledgling change in the court's dynamics. And they warn it may not last — perhaps not even into next week.

Roberts has definitely developed a consensus-seeking Court.

The rulings in this session haven't been good news for Democrats.  Pay-off for ruling favorably for ObamaCare, and then re-writing the law.
Trump has created a cult and looks more and more like Hitler every day.
