The Supreme Court has handed down four major decisions this week, elating conservatives and driving leftists into an utter tailspin as they ruled against affirmative action, ruled twice for religious freedom involving Christians, and ruled against student loan bailouts.

On Thursday, the Supreme Court handed down a landmark ruling against affirmative action. The court found that the practice of using race to determine who will be admitted to American colleges violates the 14th Amendment’s Equal Protection Clause. That ruling caused meltdowns from President Biden and former President Obama as leftists collectively tore out plugs of hair over the constitutional ruling. Harvard is already plotting a way around it. That didn’t take long.
Then in a “landmark victory” for religious freedom, another ruling on Thursday saw the Supreme Court unanimously decide that the US Postal Service (USPS) broke the law and violated constitutional rights when they imposed “progressive discipline” on postal carrier Gerald Groff, an evangelical Christian, when he refused to work on Sundays.
On Friday, the highest court in the land handed down two more landmark cases that somewhat restored the faith of conservatives in the judicial system.
In a 6-3 decision that came out Friday, the Supreme Court ruled in favor of Christian Colorado graphic designer Lorie Smith, who sued the state over its anti-discrimination law that prohibited businesses providing sales or other accommodations to the public from denying service based on a customer’s sexual orientation. She did not want to create wedding websites for same-sex marriages based on her religious beliefs and the court saw it her way, according to Fox News.

And the last case is the one that will probably send the left right over the edge as they scream and rend their clothes.
The Supreme Court on Friday struck down the Biden administration program to forgive student debt for more than 43 million American borrowers at a cost of $400 billion, according to ABC7 News. There will be no student loan bailouts, something that the nation could not afford and that those who borrowed the money legally owed. The vote was 6-3, with conservative justices in the majority with an opinion written by Chief Justice John Roberts.

President Biden is not happy over any of it:
For decades, the Supreme Court recognized a college’s freedom to decide how to build a diverse student body and provide opportunity.
Today, the Court walked away from precedent, effectively ending affirmative action in higher education.
I strongly disagree with this decision.
— President Biden (@POTUS) June 29, 2023
And neither are other leftist politicians:
More than 40 million hard working Americans are waiting for the help that President Biden promised them, and they expect this administration to throw everything they’ve got into the fight until they make good on this commitment.

Just last year, DOE forgave $6 BILLION for defrauded students. Trump completely wiped out debt for disabled veterans. Neither program was challenged nor overturned.
We still have the power to cancel and must use it, or we’re looking at an economic crisis for millions of people.

Every child deserves a chance to chase their American Dream.
Yet sadly, today’s Supreme Court ruling narrows access to higher education & the crucial ladder of opportunity that it provides.
Its impact will be felt imminently, diminishing hard-fought progress for racial justice.

Chief Justice Roberts’ majority opinion does violence to justice and fairness in America.
In contrast, Justice Jackson’s powerful dissent is inspiring to us, as we continue to fight to widen the path to success for all Americans.

Today’s Supreme Court decision is a denial of opportunity.
It’s not about being colorblind. It’s about being blind to history, blind to empirical evidence about disparities, and blind to the strength that diversity brings to classrooms. pic.twitter.com/pB872AnPbO

Right-wing ideologues on the Supreme Court gutted reproductive freedom last year.
The very same extremists just obliterated consideration of racial diversity in college admissions.
They clearly want to turn back the clock.
We will NEVER let that happen.
— Hakeem Jeffries (@RepJeffries) June 29, 2023
The hypocrisy is clear:
As justices accept lavish, six-figure gifts, they don’t dare to help Americans saddled with student loan debt, instead siding with the powerful, big-monied interests.

Democrats are having a Supremely bad day

Reaction to the rulings by conservatives was hot and heavy with former President Trump getting tons of accolades over the rulings:
A spectacular day for Donald Trump whose three conservative picks for SCOTUS were integral to the historic decisions yesterday and today. Major feather in his cap and will likely (& rightfully) be touted by his campaign in coming months.

If Joe Biden disagrees with the decision, then you know the Supreme Court made the right decision.

Regardless of your opinion about the Trump presidency, his mark on the Supreme Court has been extraordinary. Decision after decision has restored a fundamental constitutionalist perspective to our legal landscape. Trump’s agenda either remade or restored America – your choice.

Yesterday, progressives were upset because the Supreme Court ruled that racial discrimination is unconstitutional. Progressives are upset today because the Supreme Court has ruled that state-compelled speech is unconstitutional.

Biden’s $400 billion student loan bailout has been STRUCK DOWN by the Supreme Court!
Americans that paid back their student loans and Americans who never even had student loans will not be forced to payback everyone else’s student loans.
Huge victory for personal responsibility…

Will Biden “pack” the Supreme Court so Democrats never lose again?
That would be the dumbest and most destructive thing any president could do, effectively ending the Republic.
So I’m guessing yes.
