Conservatives were not happy with the decisions handed down by the Supreme Court this term.
Despite chief justice John Roberts repeated betrayals the term was not an entire loss for conservatives.
And one bright spot came about when Brett Kavanaugh dropped the hammer on George Soros with one crushing defeat.
Justice Brett Kavanaugh authored a majority opinion in the case of Agency of International Development v. Alliance for Open Societies International which held that established foreign organizations have no First Amendment rights.
The case revolved around a 2003 law that required American and international companies that took federal money to fight HIV/AIDS abroad to sign on to a policy of opposing “prostitution or sex trafficking.
In this matter the Soros funded Open Society International sued claiming this violated their First Amendment Rights.
This was an extension of a 2013 case where the court ruled that American organizations did not have to abide by the policy requirement to support an end to sex trafficking and prostitution.
But in this decision, the court ruled against Soros and his international groups.
Writing for the majority Kavanaugh stated, “This case instead concerns foreign organizations that are voluntarily affiliated with American organizations. Those foreign organizations are legally separate from the American organizations. And because foreign organizations operating abroad do not possess constitutional rights, those foreign organizations do not have a First Amendment right to disregard the Policy Requirement. In sum, plaintiffs’ foreign affiliates are foreign organizations, and foreign organizations operating abroad possess no rights under the U. S. Constitution.”
To be clear, conservatives have ample reason to feel disgust and frustration at the Supreme Court.
During this past term chief justice John Roberts – whom George W. Bush and other establishment Republicans sold as a conservative – sold out the right on issues such as abortion, amnesty and special rights for transgenders and homosexuals.
The court moved sharply to the left.
This was not what Republican voters bargained for.
But they did take heart in George Soros funded international organizations losing taxpayer funding.
Soros groups take that money and use it to spread left wing ideology.
That’s because money is fungible.
Left-wing groups – like Planned Parenthood – that receive taxpayer funding use that money to create room in their budget for political activities because it frees up funds that would otherwise be used on administrative costs or the group’s infrastructure.
Thanks to Brett Kavanaugh the Supreme Court stripped left-wing international organizations of this ability to receive and abuse taxpayer money.
In a term filled with defeats on key issues conservatives did take heart that there was still some semblance on sanity left on the Supreme Court.
