Skip to comments.Why John Roberts (Likely) Is Protecting Obamacare
Posted on 01/12/2014 12:37:25 PM PST by Para-Ord.45
On Monday, without comment (because he could not make a coherent one), Chief Justice John Roberts denied a request by the Association of American Physicians & Surgeons and the Alliance for Natural Health USA for a stay in the implementation of Obamacare. The groups had made their application last Friday, arguing that since the bill had been declared a tax by the Supreme Court (with Justice Roberts himself the deciding vote), and it had originated in the Senate (the Constitution says revenue bills may not originate), the law was therefore unconstitutional; and implementation of Obamacare should at least be stayed pending further examination.
While there are other minor issues attached to the application that were also not addressed, the truth of the matter is clear: John Roberts will never do anything to derail Obamacare, no matter what arguments against it are brought before him.
There is very good reason to believe that regardless of the medias skillful smothering of the story, John Roberts is being blackmailed to make certain Obamacare never falls in a Supreme Court case. The basis of this charge surrounds the fact that a series of strange (and probably felonious) acts are attached to the adoption of his two children.

is one blog not good enough for “Coach”?
Shouldn’t be in News.
I’m not sure that Roberts could be removed from his position if this came out. Anyone know whether he could be impeached? As to the adoption - if it was felonious, then he needs to deal with it. I don’t know how but these sort of problems only get worse the longer they are hidden.
sandra day says we should not criticize our hard working judges,
i think many of them ought be hung
Does anyone have a link to a copy of the stay request? Was it made as part of a larger, ongoing case, or was it just an uninvited shot out of the blue?
I have a hard time explaining a lot of politician votes without blackmail being a factor.
I don’t know if this story has any truth to it, but I suspect blackmail is a widespread problem in our government.
Anyone remember Maxine Waters talking about the Democrats super database with info on everyone?
Ditto to what you said. They’re all liars and crooks. They have no respect for the Constitution or the Bill of Rights. Immigration isn’t broken. Our judicial system is broken and needs to be reformed or shut down right now. What we have is not what the Founding Fathers intended. Laws should not be made from a court bench by non-elected “judges”. That’s just asking for trouble as we are now seeing.
It has become almost impossible for someone to rise to great prominence unless they are corrupted. The Powers That Be will open doors to those they can control via bribery or blackmail - and Roberts in this regard is not much different from obanghole, clinton, holder, and 75% of the senate.
But, then again, when he swears to defend America against "all enemies foreign and domestic" Obama ONLY will be identifying, attacking, and destroying HIS "domestic" enemies ... Because, to Obama and his administration, (white, male, Christian, capitalist, patriotic) "America" IS the enemy!
“The basis of this charge surrounds the fact that a series of strange (and probably felonious) acts are attached to the adoption of his two children.”
More than likely this is exactly what Roberts is being blackmailed for.
Around the time of his confirmation one of the major news affiliates tried to get the details of the adoption of Roberts 2 children which had been sealed. It caused suck a bruhaha that they finally gave it up.
Roberts two adopted children are from Ireland. The law in Ireland forbids any Irish children from being adopted and moved out of the country. Supposedly Roberts tried an end run around the law by having the two pregnant women leave Ireland and go to Argentina, give birth and then sign the children away to Roberts.. Then they flew back to Ireland and Roberts came home to the US with the two infants.
Bingo.....Roberts is being BLACKMAILED because of his ILLEGAL 2 kids adoptions. How very sad for our country.
Or else he’s GAY.
He can be impeached. A lot of Judges need to be impeached but it isn’t going to happen, which is one of many reasons the place is going to Hell in a handbasket.
“i think many of them ought be hung”
I don’t know about that but I think some of them deserve to be hanged.
every normal person understands the heartache of not being able to produce children, and the intense desire to have children....
no, its something else...wouldn't at all be surprised if he was similar to the obamma orientation....wouldn't be surprised at all....
Obama and holder have the goods on Roberst and Roberts is their personal puppet.
The phoney adaption is all or a good part of the reason. Obama was gloating two weeks before the SC decision that the SC would not defy what Congress passed. Will of the people expressed via Congress. Obama telegraphed this decision. 0bama knew he had Roberts in the bag
Regardless of tgecemotiins surrounding adoption, Roberts is still supposed to follow the letter of the law and not just the spirit. If he’s broken the law, and it’s a sufficiently serious matter, he can go to hljail over it.
“Or else hes GAY”
I think its more likely the kids adoption. Gay is so in who would care? What difference does it make? :-)
Is avoiding a scandal on the adoption worth the potential tyranny of the left?
Because he is a Lefty who fooled Bush into thinking he was a conservative.
From the Wiki:
"Steward Machine Company v. Davis, 301 U.S, 548 (1937) held, in a 54 decision, that, given the exigencies of the Great Depression, "[It] is too late today for the argument to be heard with tolerance that in a crisis so extreme the use of the moneys of the nation to relieve the unemployed and their dependents is a use for any purpose narrower than the promotion of the general welfare". The arguments opposed to the Social Security Act (articulated by justices Butler, McReynolds, and Sutherland in their opinions) were that the social security act went beyond the powers that were granted to the federal government in the Constitution. They argued that, by imposing a tax on employers that could be avoided only by contributing to a state unemployment-compensation fund, the federal government was essentially forcing each state to establish an unemployment-compensation fund that would meet its criteria, and that the federal government had no power to enact such a program."
Why.....should I know who the other two guys are in that picture?
Roberts ruled that essential aspects of the “Affordable Care Act” constitute a tax. To have standing to challenge a tax, someone has to have suffered damage by actually being forced to pay it. The group suing hasn’t paid it, so they have no standing. Therefore, Roberts rationally denies their request for a stay.
I’ll put the conspiracy theories on hold until someone actually pays the tax, challenges it, and works a case through the court system to the SC. The sooner that happens the better, since we are one “conservative” justice away from rubber stamp approval. Waiting for all this bs sucks, but that is how the law works.
Wow. I am going to cut to the chase here: Roberts was most likely blackmailed. But he was playing chess while obastard, Soros, and crew were playing checkers. In the end, Roberts (who really is on the side of the Constitution) wins. But there is and will be ugliness before victory. Welcome to war.
I hope not.
Why does the picture worry you or why do you wonder about it?
Tarred, feathered, rolled up in an old carpet, tied down on the deck of a rusty steamer and sent to the Far East. That would satisfy me. 98% of judges are stinking liberals and do not read the law, they MAKE UP law.
“Anyone remember Maxine Waters talking about the Democrats super database with info on everyone?”
.....Or so she claims.
If we knew the nature of the relationship Roberts has with,those two men, it may explain why he could be blackmailed.
Ya gotta admit, those guys look gay
I’ve seen it posted here on FR numerous times with references to a younger Roberts being with his homo friends, and wondered if that was true. I could never track down the other 2 in the pic, nor do I care, but the posters’ statements lingered.
A simple Google search turns-up these many gay refs:
I have long thought that much of our problem with faithless GOP politicians is their WIVES. Laura Bush, in particular. They really love those illegal aliens, for instance, so they can keep huge houses in several locales.
One thing about Roberts, once he’s BOUGHT, he STAYS bought.
obamacare was enacted illegally IMO and it has been protected illegally....
the justices can interpret whatever they want or are demanded....
the law is an ass....because language is an ass...."is" can be anything at all.....
anyway, I'm tired of rulings being explained away because of the constitution or laws or past rulings etc as if any of that means anything...the judges rule whatever they want anyday of the week, and never answer for it.....
keel hauling is one of my favorites
Roberts is NOT being blackmailed. Turn off that idiot box and stop reading penny dreadfuls about the cosa nostra. Is the adoption story true? If yes, then no overt blackmailing is ever required. Roberts CAN be blackmailed, D’UH. He’s in effect blackmailing hisself.
benito musolinni style from a corner lamp post.
Left for all who pass to see.
oh for crying out loud....first you don't blame democrats and then you don't want to offend republicans and you don't want to offend faithless GOP politicians BUT you will go after their wives......
you didn't throw any blame on global warming or the Catholic church, I'll hand you that....
otherwise, another blame everyone except the perp which is a very very liberal idea....
All he has done is refused to put a stay on ObamaCare to shut it down while pending litigation filed by Physicians and Surgeons works it's way through the courts.
The Physicians and Surgeons have active litigation in place, but it is not clear that the circumstances of their case warrants a stay, so a stay could be premature.
The reality is that the American people voted twice for the people who forced this legislation and will be forced to live with it until such time as it is repealed or overturned.
The best way to get rid of ObamaCare is to allow people live with the consequences of it and of their actions.
