Title: ICYMI: 3 Historic Supreme Court Victories You Should Know the Truth About
3 Historic Supreme Court Victories You Should Know the Truth About
- Presidential and bureaucratic overreach – halted. Major setback for government abuse
- Affirmative Action and racial discrimination – dead
- Religious Liberty 1st Amendment Rights and Christian business owner Biblical belief – protected
You should know the truth about these historic, major Supreme Court victories.
Each will be an explosive political issue in the upcoming election, with a lot of myths, distortions, and lies being spread.
This is one of the most libertarian, pro-constitution, pro-free speech Supreme Court in history.
Big government and the bureaucratic deep state heads are spinning.
The biased media is going crazy with outrageous claims and misinformation.
And the political establishment is furious.
Here is a quick summary:
Victory # 1: The Government overreach of student loan debt forgiveness by Biden and the ideological bureaucracy is unconstitutional.
The courts declared Biden’s bureaucracy can’t make law. Only Congress can make law.
Here are 5 things you should know:
1. President Biden and the Department of Education promised 40 million people and voters they would have up to $20,000 of their student loan debt forgiven. This would be at an estimated cost to the taxpayer of over $400 billion.
2. This was declared by the Supreme Court to be unconstitutional and government overreach by the President and the bureaucracy.
The President cannot use a Presidential Executive Order to pay off student debt. He does not have the power. Only Congress can enact a law to remove debt—they have the power of the purse.
To do so would cost taxpayers billions.
The President does not have the authority to make decisions on spending and policy unilaterally. That’s the responsibility of Congress.
Even Nancy Pelosi understood this:
“People think that the President of the United States has the power for debt forgiveness– He does not. He can postpone. He can delay. But he does not have that power. That has to be an act of Congress.”
Biden’s Executive Order was the act of a dictator, not a president.
What he did was destroy the separation of powers between Congress and the President, and the Supreme Court rightly pushed back, deeming his actions unconstitutional.
3. 40 million people with student loans were lied to for political purposes.
The President knew it would be struck down. But to help his campaign win support (and votes) in the 2022 election, he used the issue as a political ploy to gain voters and mobilize volunteers… and it worked.
4. Now, the President and his allies will make this a major campaign issue.
This was a victory for limited government and a defeat for big government statism.
This monumental ruling was a victory for individual freedom, the rule of law, constitutional separation of powers, taxpayers, and fairness.
The Biden Administrative State collectivist philosophy is to use government power to transform culture and politics by any means necessary.
Big government statists love to divide America into groups and carve out special interest promises to gain more votes and an army of volunteers “for the cause.”
They do not try to solve the problem – a very real one – but use a problem to enlarge their power and control, grow the bureaucracy, centralize power, and win elections.
5. They won’t give up.
Biden has already announced he would still try to provide student loan debt relief but in some other way.
Court Victory #2: No more racial discrimination: Affirmative Action is dead.
For over 25 years, I have taught and explained how Affirmative Action is a moral evil—it’s racism.
In this court case, Affirmative Action was found to have enrolled less qualified Black students over more qualified Asian and White students.
That’s not American.
That’s not right.
All students applying should be judged on their school history and ability, not their race.
Here is what you need to know.
1. The court decision ends 50 years of legalized racial discrimination in college and university admissions.
Colleges were accepting new students based on a flawed theory of helping one race over another.
The victims were Asians, followed by Whites.
Here is the shocking reality of what the court found:
“Over 80% of all Black applicants in the top academic percentile were admitted to UNC, while under 70% of White and Asian applicants in that percentile were admitted.” At Harvard, an Asian American applicant in the top academic percentile has a lower chance of being admitted than a Black student in the fourth-lowest academic decile.”
This is wrong.
All people are created equal and should be treated equally by school admission boards and the law.
2. Equality of opportunity does not deny it’s tougher for some or that some have advantages.
In life, some are wrongly disadvantaged, and some have fewer advantages than others.
For example, Blacks have both racial discrimination and financial disadvantages.
Justice Clearance Thomas – who is Black – wrote in his concurring opinion:
“While I am painfully aware of social and economic ravages which have befallen my race and all who suffer discrimination, I hold out enduring hope that this country will live up to its principles so clearly enunciated in the Declarations of Independence and the Constitution of the United States: that all men are created equal citizens and must be treated equally before the law.”
3. The college elites, statist politicians, bureaucrats, and biased media are furious
The opposition is going to use this ruling, like the student loan debt forgiveness ruling, to explain why the Supreme Court is… of course… “extremist.”
Sen. Warren said:
“The Harvard and UNC admissions programs cannot be reconciled with the guarantees of the Equal Protection Clause. Both programs lack sufficiently focused and measurable objectives warranting the use of race, unavoidably employ race in a negative manner, involve racial stereotyping, and lack meaningful endpoints. We have never permitted admissions programs to work in that way, and we will not do so today.”
This will be a key issue aimed at students and Blacks to win in 2024.
But it’s all politics.
The ruling stops immoral practices of racial discrimination. It says our American tradition of colorblindness must be used because of the Constitution’s “broad sweep of the Equal Protection Clause” of the 14th Amendment.
4. Regarding the 3 radical Supreme Court judicial activists, Chief Justice Roberts said:
“The way to stop discrimination on the basis of race is to stop discrimination on the basis of race.”
The decision was 6 – 3. The three opposed to the decision were angry and even attacked the other judges.
In response, Justice Thomas declared that the universities are “rudderless, race-based preferences… fly in the face of our colorblind Constitution and our Nation’s equality ideal.”
He said, “While I am painfully aware of social and economic ravages which have befallen my race and all who suffer discrimination, I hold out enduring hope that this country will live up to its principles so clearly enunciated in the Declarations of Independence and the Constitution of the United States: that all men are created equal citizens and must be treated equally before the law.”
One of the best responses to Black radical Justice Jackson was from Black U.S. Senator Tim Scott, who said:
“According to Justice Jackson’s race-infused worldview falls flat at each step. Individuals are the sum of their unique experiences, challenges, and accomplishments. What matters is not the barriers they face but how they choose to confront them. And their race is not to blame for everything – good or bad – that happens in their lives. A contrary, myopic worldview based on individuals’ skin color to the total exclusion of their personal choices is nothing short of racial determinism.”
5. Harvard and other schools say they will find ways around the ruling
Colleges are in a panic.
And in lawless defiance, they vow to “work around the ruling.”
Thomas Lifson of Harvard vows to “Preserve… our essential values” (meaning Affirmative Action following landmark SCOTUS ruling). This defiant language means that Asian students will continue to be rejected with far greater qualifications than those required for Black students to be admitted.
That merits lawsuits against the colleges ahead.
Bottom line: This is a great victory for the constitutional right of equal protection and a color-free society.
It’s also a blow to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) in the corporate world that divides and classifies by race.
Court Victory #3: Great religious freedom victory.
The Supreme Court says our Constitutional 1st Amendment rights apply to Christians and religious business owners and that government DEI “Diversity, Equity, Inclusion” and so-called “anti-discrimination laws” cannot violate a business owner’s conscious and sincerely held religious beliefs.
Free speech won.
It’s a historic moment.
Here’s what happened:
1. A Christian business owner was sued, threatened, and forced to violate their own Biblically held beliefs and personal conscience
Local, state, and federal “anti-discrimination” laws have been used to attack Christian business owners, especially bakers, photographers, and those in the creative area.
These Christian business owners have been targeted. Why? Because they will not use their creative talents to promote something they disagree with, such as gay marriage.
Lorie Smith has been in court for many years for creating custom-designed web work for her clients.
When I interviewed her on my podcast, The Huey Alert, she had amazing faith, strength, and courage to stand up for what is right.
Here are just a few of the topics we discuss during the podcast:
- How States are creating laws to force people to go against their religious beliefs and values
- How all business owners and artists should have liberty and freedom to create what they want – not what they are told or forced to do by the state
- How the Supreme Court’s decision will impact free speech
She explained that she has clients “from all walks of life.” Including LGBTQ clients. However, when she was asked to create a custom city for gay marriage, she declined because it went against her religious values… she was sued and has been battling in court for over 7 years.
- The podcast touches on these topics and so much more.

- The Interview is about 10 minutes long.
Christians are now protected to live out their lives without the government forcing them to violate their consciousness.
2. The LGBTQ politicians and biased media went nuts
Based upon the Supreme Court’s ruling, the radical left is determined that they must protect LGBTQ rights and anti-discrimination laws. That’s why radical Democrats want to restructure the Supreme Court, which will be their focus for the 2024 election.
So again, it becomes a politicizing issue to mobilize, anger, and divide America.
But the court did the right thing.
The Supreme Court has spoken. Elections have consequences.
