What is motivating Chief Justice John Roberts? Does he need to talk to us, the American people, about his oath to judge the law in an unbiased, non partisan manner? Why are so many judicial decisions being made that clearly run counter to the wishes of the American people? Where is the caveat that America must be a government of the people, by the people, and for the people?
Supreme Court nominee John G. Roberts, Jr. worked behind the scenes for gay rights activists, and his legal expertise helped them persuade the Supreme Court to issue a landmark 1996 ruling protecting people from discrimination because of their sexual orientation, says observer Pat Dollard (1). This web reporter who cites a LA TIMES news report and interview goes on to stress to readers that gay rights activists at the time described the courts 6-3 ruling as the movements most important legal victory. Roberts took on the Romer v. Evans case as a pro bono attorney, but he failed to...

In a word, blackmail.
Where is Wikileaks when you need them?
Smells and everyone I talk to thinks so too. Now what?
Imho, Roberts was compromised. Ya gotta love the IRS and NSA.
I am getting really tired of anyone that is in office lying right through their teeth. Either you are for us or you are against us. Too bad the commies are trying to break down everything in America. Go home, commies. Ain’t your country.
A big affirmative action decision is due in June, let’s see how he stands on that.
“In a word, blackmail.”
Yes, I think you’re probably right.
Now he can be impeached for misbehavior by the House ofReprresentatives, tried in the US Senate, and if found guily, he could be removed from office. Misbehavior: Failure to accurately reveal his legal past work
It’s tough when you get that anonymous phone call reminding you that your kids were not legally adopted and that they have the dope on you. Just make sure that case goes the way we want and you stay SCCJ until you die, ..or we kill you!
That is NOT in the job description. It really should not matter what the American people want or don't want.
Yes, and then Obama would appoint someone 10X worse to replace him. What would you accomplish?
So to do nothing is okay with you, huh?
Tell me how your "solution" would do anything but move the court to the left.
Maybe if we allowed voters to remove activist federal judges instead of letting politicians appoint WHOEVER they want (which the Senators then rubber stamp), we wouldn't have so many black robed tyrants.
You're getting warm. Horse's head in Johnny's bed, dead fishes? Why? There is no need for overt blackmail, there is just being blackmailable (for lack of a dictionary word), and that is plenty sufficient!
Amazing how many of the "Impeach Roberts" conservatives overlook this simple fact. Yeah, impeach and remove Roberts, then Obama will appoint another Kagan-type communist to fill his seat for the next 3 decades. Problem solved!
The federal judiciary NEEDS to be reformed. Federal judgeships should NOT a lifetime job where they can do whatever they want on the bench and the only recourse is impeachment. Even the "we must never ever amend the constitution and change what the founders set up in 1789" crowd (Rick Perry, Mark Levin, etc.) made an "exception" in this case, and called for new laws to term limit federal judges and hold them accountable for their actions.
Not “against the will if the American People”....that not what the Supreme Court does. “Against the CONSTITUTION of the United States” is correct and it is not only correct, but more frightening.
We all know that Roberts isn't going to be impeached, especially not for making rulings that some don't like .
My grandmother and her generation used to say “They must have seen that someplace before” when we as kids did something they didn't expect to see.
Same with those who keep posting demands that things happen that have no chance of happening, they must hear someone else saying similar things. I guess complete fantasy is easier than reality for some.
