Supreme Court gets one right: Declares Federal Courts have limited ruling power

This is HUGE, because it re-introduces the notion of States' Rights in its proper context. For far too long, the Federal Government has wielded the Supremacy Clause as a bludgeon over States despite there being no explicit authority in the Constitution for many of their actions. This is also a huge ruling because it sets forth the principle that the Courts should not be the ultimate arbiter of laws but rather that the individual legislatures (both State and Federal) should take responsibility for more law-making.

    This time SCOTUS may have done right but they were wrong in the citizenship question being added to the 2020 census:

    Again, Roberts sided with the liberal wing of the Court:

    "Chief Justice John Roberts wrote the court's opinion in the census case, with the four liberal justices joining him in the relevant part of the outcome. Roberts said the Trump administration's explanation for wanting to add the question was "more of a distraction" than an explanation. "
