The writer fails to mention that Roberts accepted for conference a test of Obamas eligibility for the 15th of this month.Yes, I know it is going nowhere ( not four votes ) but curious.

I don’t have much faith in Roberts.

Ignoring the alleged Code of "Ethics", ex parte meeting
between SCOTUS and the future executioner of America.

God help us if we are putting our faith in Roberts to hold back Obama’s Socialism. Roberts blinked on the biggest challenge of our times. There is no way to explain that as anything other than putting the stamp of approval on Socialism.

I’ll never understand why Roberts found for Obamacare, especially since he had to use such tortured reasoning to do so. I think that by defining it as a tax (and one that would not have originated in the normal legal form), he provided a means of challenging its legality, but so far, nobody has. However, why he did so in the first place is very puzzling.

I think Obama did have him intimidated in some way, because while it is true that it was passed by the legislature, the way in which this was done was highly suspect and many of the Dems themselves did not like it. So it couldn’t have been merely that Roberts saw legislative support and “the array of media” supporting it and blinked, because it was something that clearly had as many if not more detractors than supporters, and probably a challenge would have been welcomed even by unexpected quarters.

I think Roberts was personally threatened, and I recall the suggestion of a poster here that it was because of the adoption of his children. There was nothing illegal about it at the time, but some of these Latin American countries (the children were Irish but were adopted through a Latin American agency, probably a Catholic organization) have, at the urging of the US, passed very harsh laws aimed mainly at prohibiting adoptions by North Americans.

The reason for this is, of course, the abortion lobby, which sees the possibility of adoption as something that might dissuade women from having an abortion. Hence, they have been working to have international adoptions defined as “human trafficking” and have been quite successful in prohibiting and even nearly criminalizing it in several places. The US has put a lot of pressure particularly on countries that prohibited or restricted abortion, such as Guatemala. This has practically halted international adoptions in these countries, and even undone or stalled those that were already in process when the laws were imposed. (Speaking of Guatemala, there was a very interesting article by Mary Anastasia O’Grady in today’s WSJ about this very thing.)

I don’t recall which country Roberts’ children were adopted from, but I will always think that the Obama regime, specialists in the vicious personal attack as a means of achieving their goals, let it be known that they were willing to go after Roberts on this unless his judgment was favorable to them.

If Roberts is our hope for America we are in big trouble. He may be
trying to redeem himself with some conservatives in matters that dont count and will never amount to anything.

misChief inJustice John RobsUS is a certifiable squish for King Barry. OblahMaoCare was foisted upon us by his wavering pen upon a puppet string.
