1) Both are big for different reasons. Trump v. Hawaii was big because it solidified Trump's authority to deal with immigration that wasn't coming by land via Executive Order, which was a national security issue. But Janus? That's strategery.
2) Strategery, just to recap, is the art of winning by destroying your opponents ability to defeat you, as opposed to strategy, which is the art of winning by defeating your opponent.
3) Rendering an opponent unable to beat you comes in many forms. Luring them into traps to destroy their ability to faithfully argue their point, preparing your actions around their predictable reactions and then actively causing their reactions
4) But most importantly? Strategery means denying your opponent resources. One of the biggest resources? Money.
5) Here's the scam of public sector unions: even if you aren't in the union, you fall under their collective bargaining. They were then able to automatically take 'union fees' for collective bargaining on your behalf right out of your paycheck.
6) Didn't matter if you were actually IN the union or not, just to emphasize that point. Then, those public sector unions would use their money to pump it into elections, fund political activities like protests, etc.
7) When teachers protests happen and teachers are literally bussed in from all over a state to participate in protests, who do you think funds that? Public sector unions, using money drawn from the paychecks of ALL teachers, not just those who were in the union.
8) Since Obama was elected, the amount of money public sector unions were putting into elections SKYROCKETED, hitting record levels in 2012 and increasing exponentially since then.…
9) And note, it was EXTREMELY unbalanced, hitting 85-90+% donations to Democrats every freaking year, tens of millions of dollars yearly, and that's not counting expenditures by public sector unions to arrange protests!
10) And now? Janus just created the rule that public sector unions have to obtain affirmative consent to extract payment from public sector employees.
11) "Accordingly, neither an agency fee nor any other form of payment to a public-sector union may be deducted from an employee, nor may any other attempt be made to collect such a payment, unless the employee affirmatively consents to pay." Page 5…
12) Affirmative consent is the death knell of Public Sector unions actively participating in politics. /end
