After 40 years, SCOTUS reverses Chevron Doctrine in major blow to Regime overreach

That’s right. The biggest news of the day is NOT Sleepy Joe. Although, I think it is obvious that his long overdue exposure to the general population last night was highly staged by his own party. The time to end the elder abuse is now, even they agree.

Sleepy Joe is only the 3rd headline of the day. The 2nd is SCOTUS striking down the Enron era “obstruction” charges related to J6, which had resulted in the imprisonment of hundreds and hundreds of peaceful protesters. Read about it HERE.

But the real lead headline today is the reversal of Chevron. In the unabashed glory of mid-80s Reaganism, the initial ruling was actually celebrated by conservatives, as it meant the benevolent powers that be could do as they pleased, giving federal agencies the power to interpret law. What could go wrong? How could they not see how this power would later be abused? I am posting from here… because the other news is blocking out this major story, you may only read about it here…

In a major ruling, the Supreme Court on Friday cut back sharply on the power of federal agencies to interpret the laws they administer and ruled that courts should rely on their own interpretion of ambiguous laws. The decision will likely have far-reaching effects across the country, from environmental regulation to healthcare costs.

By a vote of 6-3, the justices overruled their landmark 1984 decision in Chevron v. Natural Resources Defense Council, which gave rise to the doctrine known as the Chevron doctrine. Under that doctrine, if Congress has not directly addressed the question at the center of a dispute, a court was required to uphold the agency’s interpretation of the statute as long as it was reasonable. But in a 35-page ruling by Chief Justice John Roberts, the justices rejected that doctrine, calling it “fundamentally misguided.”

Justice Elena Kagan dissented, in an opinion joined by Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Ketanji Brown Jackson. Kagan predicted that Friday’s ruling “will cause a massive shock to the legal system.”

When the Supreme Court first issued its decision in the Chevron case more than 40 years ago, the decision was not necessarily regarded as a particularly consequential one. But in the years since then, it became one of the most important rulings on federal administrative law, cited by federal courts more than 18,000 times.

Although the Chevron decision – which upheld the Reagan-era Environmental Protection Agency’s interpretation of the Clean Air Act that eased regulation of emissions – was generally hailed by conservatives at the time, the ruling eventually became a target for those seeking to curtail the administrative state, who argued that courts, rather than federal agencies, should say what the law means. The justices had rebuffed earlier requests (including by one of the same lawyers who argued one of the cases here) to consider overruling Chevron before they agreed last year to take up a pair of challenges…

One thought on “After 40 years, SCOTUS reverses Chevron Doctrine in major blow to Regime overreach”

  1. No. The REAL news today is Vigano accusing Bergolio of schism and heresy, calling out VII as the cause of all the Church’s problems, and vindicating like 95% of what Ann Barnhardt has been shouting from the rooftops for a decade.

    This is absolutely fantastic and the best news in years.
