Ever since the results of the US Census was made public, GOP-dominant statehouses have been determined to use their numbers to (literally) redraw electoral maps in their (of course) favor. Most fair-minded people can see through this brazen ploy to elevate their political power and diminish the voting influence of voters of color. And yet, the Supreme Court isn’t concerned. In fact, they just gave the green light, albeit temporarily, to one GOP state to discriminate away. What does this say about our Supreme Court? Is this an example of true impartiality and adhering to our Constitution and the Rule of Law and the basic sense of Decency and Justice for All? If anything, it’s an argument that underscores why it’s necessary to have a balanced court. Is it time to add to this current crop of justices?; In the meantime: Some groups are exploiting the gullibility and making fun of US Spanish-speakers by feeding them misinformation – and succeeding; Chemists just made a radical discovery that could be a game-changer for the environment; and Guess which countries have the highest percentage of ICE detainers. Go beyond the headlines…
