Ian Millhiser the Editor of ThinkProgress Justice, explains why this has been an unusually positive term for the Supreme Court. The Roberts Court makes the right call on many decisions from Marriage Equality to fair housing. SCOTUS rules against the Obama Administration in regulating Coal Power plants. What will happen for Mercury regulation next? Reviewing the absurdity of the King V Burwell case. Justice Roberts annoyance with the King V Burwell case. How the Court decided on marriage equality.

Peter King dismisses the threat from White Supremacist terrorists and dismisses a study showing that they have killed more people than Muslims terrorist groups. The Republican candidates double down in opposition to marriage equality and Senator James Inhofe says even his Gay friends oppose the marriage equality decision. Glenn Beck says Marriage Equality might force him off the radio.  Also your calls and IMs.
