the quote is stating a GENERAL constitutional Principal.

Now you would have point if the quote said something like.
Emergency doesn't increase MORTGAGE RIGHTS, or CONTACT LAW rights.
the C.J. is setting forth the General principal by which the that case and ANY OTHER constitutional question turns.

C'mon dude, just Be real.
Despite grandiose claims of universal principles the SCOTUS tailors it's decisions narrowly. This is to prevent "interpretations" where contract law restraints on state law are erroneously applied to Presidential national security actions. The Court is explicit when they create a broader precedent it is not a matter of using all caps and text color.

Again, four separate laws have been cited, the statute cited by the President and three others giving the President authority to impose tariffs not create new laws. The response has been bluster and bombast.
What is a 30 something year old single man with a rock in one hand and a Honduran flag in the other?

An asylum seeker.
