Skip to comments.Chief Justice Roberts is wrong in two distinct ways in criticizing Trump
Posted on 11/22/2018 10:39:56 AM PST by conservative98
The chief justice is just about as believable insisting that politics doesn't affect the judiciary as Iran's President Ahmadinejad was when he told a Columbia University audience that there are no gays in Iran. Groucho Marx articulated the dilemma with the immortal line, "Who are you going to believe? Me or your lying eyes?"
Or, as Mark Levin posted on Facebook:
"It appears John Roberts doesn't live in the real world. A few decades ago he understood that there are, in fact, too many progressive judges and justices who legislate from the bench. Indeed, when it came to Obamacare, Roberts himself led the court's leftists in rewriting the Constitution and imposing that damnable law on all of us. We don't need any lectures from him. Indeed, he should be admonishing his own branch of government for its outrageous activism rather than playing to the media by attacking the president. Classless."
Roberts has remained silent as a series of outrageous decisions from federal district judges has substituted a single judge's decision on what the POTUS should do for the authority granted to the chief executive by the Constitution.
Another time that the chief justice remained silent happened in the 2010 State of the Union Address, when President Obama explicitly attacked the Supreme Court's decision in Citizens United, and his colleague, Justice Alito, mouthed "Not true," only to be rebuked by many commentators.
For at least six decades, courts have been legislating from the bench, and finally a president has taken this on. We can expect the entire institutional weight of the establishment to come down hard on him. The only thing Trump has going for his position is reality.

Robert’s is as corrupt as they come.
Fox News just had an establishment talking head on that agrees with John Roberts. I had to turn it off.
Fox News has another one one agreeing with Roberts. Fair and balanced?
Roberts has been an idiot since he helped the Kenyan shove Obamacare down the throats of Americans.
Judges make decisions based upon their political leanings? Preposterous! Next you’ll be telling me the news media is biased.
Trump needs to find out what DS and the libs have on this POS. Then, use it to bring him to resignation. Whatever it is/was, is a 2-edged sword that cuts both ways. Use it to force his resignation and get rid of this traitorous POS.
FOX is worthless. They’ve gone over to the Dark Side.
Can anyone photoshop Baghdad Bob with Roberts face and the Caption There are no Obama Judges ?
NOT a dependable conservative vote here. We need another strong conservative justice. Or two.
Thing with FOX is that they do take in dissenting voices to try to present balance. They have Marie Harf, and they also have Juan Williams. If the Democrats refuse to hear dissent in their own ranks, FOX will give the dissenters air time. There is also Shep Smith who regularly goes rogue.
They have the reputation for being there to present a conservative point of view, but I think that is not right. They do offer viewpoints across the spectrum.
He’s a RINO and playing for the demonrats. I gave him a second chance with this new administration. After this, I’ve washed my hands of him.
It was rumored he was being blackmailed over his kids’ out of country adoptions. The kids have reached majority so that’s not in play anymore.
Wonder if Justice Roberts regrets walking into this rhetorical Street Fight where all can stand around and look?
That was his choice alone. I know each and every other Supreme Court Judge has an opinion on it, but will likely never say so in a public forum.
I can see Ruth Bader G. expressing her total support of Rodger’s statements as she speaks on CNN. She can say whatever the hell she pleases, because she’s an Uber-Liberal Very-Eldery Woman.
Ruth could go at any moment, and she knows there is nothing to lose by saying what she pleases. She only gains in celebrityhood.
Come to think of it, the fact that Roberts sailed through without much of a pushback ought to have been a big red flag.
Democrats govern through judicial tyranny, activist judges winning votes for Democrats by establishing unconstitutional protections and privileges for special interest voters.
