… If These Arguments are any Indication [#SCOTUS][#Friedrichs v CTA]…

.. then the public sector unions throughout the country are in big trouble .

.. you would expect that Alito , Thomas , & Roberts would be solid votes to uphold Friedrichs are the likelies , Justices Kennedy and Scalia . I would also count among the possibles one of the liberals , Justice Steven Breyer ..

.. from the arguments , Scalia will be a strong vote to uphold . He may well even get the majority opinion to write , that is if the Chief Justice [Roberts] does not do so himself ..

.. [h/t — Politico.com]..
.. [link] to the blog post article ..

… then there is Tony Kennedy . He literally is SCOTUS ‘ resident ” weather vane , ” that is the swing vote in may of the cases . he may well be a swing vote , but he is still nominally a conservative . One should try to remember that . So , in this case , he is a Yes vote ..

.. in arguments , Breyer was very leery about overriding the current precedent [Abood v Detroit Bd of Ed] . It does not mean that he will not do so . In recent cases , such as Knox v C.T.A , Breyer voted with the conservatives . It is possible , especially if he is given the majority opinion to write , that Breyer will do so again …

.. first , they go apopletic over 538.com ‘ s Nate Silver ‘ s updated prediction over the potential United States Senate races . This is especially rich , given that , like Charlie Cook and Stu Rothenberg , Silver is well known for having a pro DemoCrap tilt . A little bit of poetic justice …

.. Now , they are trying to give Supreme Court Associate Justices Ruth Bader Ginsberg and Steven Breyer the ” bums rush ” off of the Court . The loonie lefties want to do this , because they are afraid of who might be able to replace them , especially if the replacements come after the new year . Getting a strong liberal nominee from POTUS past a GOP – controlled US Senate may well be well – nigh impossible .

.. Also , they are deathly afraid of what might come in 2016 . HRC is no certain cinch to run . Even if she does , she will have the Obama record millstone and the Obama economy millstones draped arond her neck . Things will be even worse if the economy swoons into a recession . If HRC does not run , then who does ? Even so , then who would be the nominee ? Ditto for the GOP …
