    Fox News reporter John Roberts roasted Trump spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Tuesday over the White House’s refusal to allow television coverage of its daily press briefings. When Roberts, the network’s chief White House correspondent, got up to leave the briefing early, Sanders noticed and joked, "John Roberts is bored today, he's stepping out." “If it was on camera, I might not be,” Roberts shot back. He also tweeted about the incident, noting he had an on-camera appearance he needed to be at, adding, "Had the brief been on camera, it would have been on TV, not me." The restrictions...
  • EVIDENCE: Supreme Court Justice John Roberts Was ‘Hacked’ By Obama Official

    07/13/2017 1:02:12 AM PDT · by UKrepublican · 76 replies
    Evidence shows that John Roberts, chief justice of the United States Supreme Court, was “hacked” by a Deep State surveillance operation overseen by Obama administration CIA director John Brennan and Obama director of national intelligence James Clapper. Roberts, the Bush appointee who made the decisive vote to uphold the constitutionality of Obamacare before the 2012 election, was allegedly the victim of the same Deep State surveillance program that spied on President Donald Trump. Tapes released by Federal Judge G. Murray Snow — preserved on a Whistleblower Soundcloud page — show real estate billionaire Timothy Blixseth explaining Brennan and Clapper’s surveillance...

    Perhaps it was the way he arched an eyebrow. Or maybe it was the momentary twitch of his nose. Could it have been that barely seen curl of the lip? Somehow, somehow, we must see that Chief Justice John Roberts was critical of President Donald Trump in his commencement address for ninth grade graduates at Cardigan Mountain School even though his name was not mentioned nor was there anything that could be remotely interpreted as the slightest reference to him. Such desperation to discern criticism, where none existed, of Trump by the Chief Justice came from Los Angeles Times editorial...

    Appearing on today’s Morning Joe, law professor Jonathan Turley noted that Chief Justice John Roberts teamed with Justice Anthony Kennedy to devise an exception to the Court’s ruling of yesterday that permitted President Trump’s travel ban to remain in place. Under the exception, the ban does not apply to foreign nationals with a “bona fide” relationship with a person or entity in the United States. Turley said that as of late, Roberts has been “swimming a lot in the middle of the pool,” has become very Anthony “Kennedy-like,” and would become the new swing vote should Kennedy retire.

    WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court on Monday reaffirmed its 2015 decision recognizing a constitutional right to same-sex marriage, ruling that states may not treat married same-sex couples differently from others in issuing birth certificates. The decision was unsigned. Justice Neil M. Gorsuch, joined by Justices Clarence Thomas and Samuel A. Alito Jr., dissented. The case concerns an Arkansas law about birth certificates that treats married opposite-sex couples differently from same-sex ones. A husband of a married woman is automatically listed as the father even if he is not the genetic parent. Same-sex spouses are not. The case, Pavan v. Smith,...

    When governments issue regulations that undermine the value of property, bureaucrats don't necessarily have to compensate property holders, the Supreme Court ruled Friday. The court voted 5-3, in Murr V. Wisconsin, a closely watched Fifth Amendment property rights case. The case arose from a dispute over two tiny parcels of land along the St. Croix River in western Wisconsin and morphed into a major property rights case that drew several western states into the debate before the court. Chief Justice John Roberts, in a scathing dissent, wrote that ruling was a significant blow for property rights and would give greater...

    I know a lot of people are celebrating what is sure to end up a hollow victory. I’m glad President Trump twisted enough arms to deliver on what he promised during his campaign, it proves him an honorable man and a formidable leader. It’s just that the sense of deja vu leaves me feeling less than celebratory. Perhaps a long week of cold, grey skies and rain has impacted my frame of mind. Here’s how things stand from my vantage point:I see the House Republicans behaving like they won the lottery:And the Senate Republicans acting like they’re quite relevant while...

    By leaving it for Congress to dismantle, the Chief Justice ultimately set the stage for a better solution I’m not going to lie to you. I was as mad as anyone at Chief Justice Roberts when he - not once but twice - saved ObamaCare by engaging in legal gymnastics to avoid finding it unconstitutional - which it clearly was. First he pretended individual mandate fine was a tax, even after the Obama Administration had explicitly said it was not while trying to sell it to the public. Then he ignored clear language about who had to run the exchanges...

    Summary: Chief Justice John Roberts was threatened by Obama to change his vote on Obamacare according to new details in John Podesta's wikileaks emails. Also, Podesta wished a white guy named Chris Hayes was the shooter in San Bernardino instead of the Muslim Sayeed Farouk. 3 days before Antonin Scalia's death Podesta talked about "wet works" which is a KGB term for assassination. Obama was in on the emails and knew about it which is why he insulated himself from prosecution by appointing Loretta Lynch and keeping James Comey as FBI Director. All groping stories have been proven false through...

    U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts said Wednesday that building a consensus among the justices is important, although he admits he can’t do it on his own. Roberts’ comments at The Greenbrier resort in West Virginia come as the justices have struggled to reach decisions in several cases this term with the court split evenly between conservative and liberal members. The court has had eight members since the February death of Justice Antonin Scalia. “I try to achieve as much consensus as I can,” Roberts said. “We kind of have to have a commitment as a group. I think...

    Washington (CNN)The Supreme Court is in the home stretch of an unexpected term, racing to issue opinions in more than 30 cases, many that were impacted by the sudden death of Justice Antonin Scalia. At the center of it all is Chief Justice John Roberts, facing perhaps one of the the greatest challenges of his 10-plus year tenure -- navigating a series of issues such as abortion access, health care, affirmative action and immigration with a court comprised of four liberal and four conservative justices. Early in his tenure, Roberts said that promoting unanimity and collegiality were a priority. He's...

    Do not let 'Justice' Kagan manipulate you again, like she did on Obamacare. Do NOT let a President create Law. That is not his position. Do not 'tweak' his Law or you will be creating Law and that is not your position either! Congress didn't act because we already have Laws to deal with immigration. It's just that this Administration isn't bothering to follow the Law. And they sue States who try to enforce the Laws on the books. Our immigration system isn't broken, it is simply that the IMMIGRATION LAWS AREN'T BEING ENFORCED!

    WASHINGTON — The other day, Senator Charles E. Grassley of Iowa, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, decided to lecture Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. Senate Republicans, Mr. Grassley said, were not to blame for the partisan deadlock over President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee. The real culprits? The chief justice and his colleagues. Mr. Grassley’s tongue-lashing, delivered on the Senate floor, was in response to an analysis in this column last month of the chief justice’s stance as Senate Republicans refuse to consider the nomination. Chief Justice Roberts has said, for instance, that partisan confirmation hearings feed a...

    I live in Missouri, the state Trump won by less than 2,000 (the last I heard). I had been saying all along that I’d be voting for Ted Cruz, mainly because he says he’s a Christian. But on the day of our election this week, I could not do it, I voted for Trump... knowing full well his foibles. Here’s the short story of my transformation: I am a Christian man in my sixties, have not always been the best I could be, either as a man or a Christian, but I do try, sometimes.

    Evangelical broadcaster James Dobson Wednesday praised Ted Cruz's bid for the Republican presidential nomination, saying in a new television ad that the Texas senator is critical to naming more conservatives to the Supreme Court. "With Justice Scalia's death, we need a president who will defend the Constitution and nominate conservatives to the high court," Dobson, founder of Focus on the Family, said in endorsing Cruz as a private citizen. "I know Ted," Dobson said. "He's a Christian family man of the utmost integrity."

    “Who is John G. Roberts Jr., really?” asks freelance journalist Paul Green in a recent column printed on GodSpy.com. And that, it seems, is precisely the same question forming on more and more lips these days, and not just those of liberals and Democrats. “There’s a lot of people saying things about [Roberts], negative and positive,” observed American Life League President Judi Brown, “and frankly, I’ve read everything that he’s said, and I’m very confused about where he stands. I have no idea.” Although many conservatives have come out lauding president Bush for what many have called “brilliant” politicizing, in...
