Supreme Court to take on guns, abortion in upcoming term

The Supreme Court will wade into the gun debate for the first time in more than a decade and grapple with abortion restrictions in its upcoming term, which kicks off Monday.

There’s also a number of other issues percolating in lower courts that the Supreme Court likely would have to consider in the coming months, ranging from religious liberty to freedom of speech and association.

In addition, Justice Stephen G. Breyer, the most senior member of the court’s liberal wing, has become the focus of court watchers, who speculate if he’ll retire amid pressure from progressives to allow President Biden to appoint a younger jurist in his place.

High court adds 5 cases, including one brought by Ted Cruz

By JESSICA GRESKO and MARK SHERMAN, Associated Press  31 mins ago

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court on Thursday added five new cases to its calendar for the term that begins next week, among them a challenge to federal election law brought by Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas.

Cruz’s challenge involves rules about repaying a candidate for federal office who loans his or her campaign money. Under the law, a campaign can repay the candidate up to $250,000 with money collected after the election.

Cruz argues that the current rules deter candidates from loaning money to their campaigns in violation of the Constitution. A three-judge panel unanimously sided with Cruz, and the Biden administration asked the court to take the case.

Cruz, a former Supreme Court clerk, loaned his campaign $260,000 during his successful 2018 bid for reelection, when he defeated Beto O’Rourke. Cruz was ultimately repaid all but $10,000. The express purpose of the loan was to challenge the law.

No government in the 12,000 years of modern mankind history has led its people into anything but the history books with a simple lesson, don't let this happen to you.

Too bad they couldn't be bothered to take up the case in which they had original jurisdiction last December!
"I wish it need not have happened in my time," said Frodo.

"So do I," said Gandalf, "and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us."
