I think racism, sexism and homophobia should be an impeachable offense in public office. I think at the very least someone needs to explain, how can a bigot uphold their oath of office when they or not culturally or emotionally capable of representing all Americans. People like Ted Cruz, Jeffery Beauregard Sessions, Jon Kyl, Tom Coburn and Richard Shelby are white Supremacist. They see Blacks and other people of color as subservient life forms. How can we move forward in the 21st century with such a low standard of legislative representation? You have several members of congress that are racist. They may serve the fears and frustrations of their white constituencies but they only serve as terrorist to their Black and Brown citizens in their home states. The same thing can be said about the current US Supreme Court. You have a Chief Justice, John Roberts and Associate Justices Antonin Scalia and Samuel Alito who have a knowable history of racism. The US Senate has a history of confirming justices that have ...

Hey look, it's John Roberts on Fox News. I didn't know the Chief Justice had a job filling on
It's awesome that we have such a weak-willed, spineless coward as our Chief Justice. I find it amazing that John Roberts consistently rules determining what will or won't get him in trouble. Our Supreme Court (our government for that matter) needs to rule on the side of what's right, and not what is legal. And before I hear a bunch of folks quoting "obey them that have the rule over you" just remember. The founding fathers became criminals once they drafted the Declaration. To even begin the process of bringing about our Constitution, they had to ILLEGALLY scrap The Articles of Confederation which required UNANIMOUS consent from the states to be even slightly changed. The Apostle Paul was a fugitive because he refused to stop preaching Jesus Christ. It is illegal for a 14 year old girl to lead prayer in a public classroom. However, it is legal for that same 14 year old girl to murder a human growing inside her. For those of you wondering what I'm ranging about, the Supreme Court, namely Chief Justice Robe ...

Everything you need to know about the nominations showdown, in one FAQ By Dylan Matthews, Published: June 3, 2013 It was funny when Senate Judiciary Committee ranking member Chuck Grassley equated Obama filling D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals vacancies with “court-packing.” But that’s not the last we’re going to hear from the Senate about judicial appointments. According to my colleague Juliet Eilperin, Obama is gearing up to appoint three more judges to the D.C. Circuit, which currently has eight confirmed judges but a total of 11 seats. If approved, Obama’s new nominees would put the court at full capacity for the first time since a brief period in 2005, before John Roberts left to become Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. The last time the court was full before that was in 1991 — but then Clarence Thomas left to join the Supreme Court. And whether or not those judges make it onto the court could make or break Obama’s second-term agenda. They’ll be the ones ruling on decisions coming from ...

Tell Chief Justice Roberts: Don't let Justice Scalia's Republican activism on the bench drag America back to the racist Jim Crow Era The petition to Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts reads: "Put your country and the Constitution before partisan politics. If you overturn the Voting Rights Act with support from Justice Scalia, you put the credibility of the Supreme Court — and your legacy — at risk. Ensure history remembers the Supreme Court under your leadership as Chief Justice as 'the Roberts Court' not 'the Republican activist Court' that returned us to the era of Jim Crow." As one of the youngest Chief Justices appointed in U.S. history, the conservative jurist John Roberts has long been expected to leave his distinct stamp on the Supreme Court. But will his legacy be one of conservative jurisprudence or Republican judicial activism in the tradition of Jim Crow? Will his leadership be known in history books as "the Roberts Court" or "the Racist Court"? That distinction may very well hinge on ...
Scalia disappointed in Chief Justice -but who wasn't.
John Jay was the first one. Others were William Howard Taft (who liked it much better than being President), Charles Evans Hughes, and Earl Warren. The current (and 17th) one is John Roberts. The most important one, and the one really who was the founder of American jurisprudence was the 4th (and longest serving-34 years) Chief Justice of the United States, John Marshall. He was sworn in to the office on February 4, 1801. Two hundred twelve years ago today.

Rehnquist defended judicial independence in year-end report Zachariah Rivenbark This Week in Legal History On January 1, 2005, former Chief Justice William Rehnquist issued a year-end report [PDF] in which he defended the federal judiciary from political critiques. Chief Justice Rehnquist emphasized judicial independence as a means to "to administer the law fairly, without regard to public reaction," and expressed concern over calls to impeach federal judges "who issue decisions regarded by some as out of the mainstream." This year-end report was to be Rehnquist's last. He had not sat on the bench since late October 2004 due to treatment for thyroid cancer. John Roberts succeeded Rehnquist as Chief Justice in September 2005.

My latest credit: From the prizewinning author of The Nine, a gripping insider's account of the momentous ideological war between the John Roberts Supreme Court and the Obama administration. From the moment John Roberts, the chief justice of the United States, blundered through the Oath of Office at Barack Obama's inauguration, the relationship between the Supreme Court and the White House has been confrontational. Both men are young, brilliant, charismatic, charming, determined to change the course of the nation - and completely at odds on almost every major constitutional issue. One is radical; one essentially conservative. The surprise is that Obama is the conservative - a believer in incremental change, compromise, and pragmatism over ideology. Roberts - and his allies on the Court - seek to overturn decades of precedent: in short, to undo the ultimate victory FDR achieved in the New Deal. This ideological war will crescendo during the 2011-2012 term, in which several landmark cases are on ...
Does the world ever seem upside down to anyone else? "It was John Roberts who was determined to use his position as chief justice as an apostle of change," Toobin writes.

And it was Barack Obama who was determined to hold on to an older version of the meaning of the Constitution." - Jeffrey Toobin from The Oath

Hi all On Sunday we said goodbye to my beautiful sister, Diane. She was an intelligent and gifted person who lived a fantastic life. After 4 great years at Pompton Lakes High School, she worked her way to Georgetown Law school where she excelled and graduated Magna *** Laude. For 20 years she practiced law at the Federal Reserve in NY and for a prestegious law firm in DC. She worked with Alan Greenspan and John Roberts (the chief justice of the Supreme Court) and loved the challenge of solving complex problems. She "retired" out to San Diego 7 years ago and devoted much of her energy and time to charitable causes including the humane society. She always worked for the underdog and tried to make everyone better The true passion for her and her husband Darrel were their many dogs and golfing. They took their dogs everywhere and loved them as if they were their kids. Her successful career also allowed her to travel the world and played the greatest courses on earth.

Should the Manchurian Candidate be returned to the White House, does anyone believe he would not nominate to the IPAB a select coterie of like-minded, Marxist plutocrats, eager to wrench by any means from the American people their last remaining vestige of individual liberty? Did John Roberts realize that his constitutionally depraved ruling would provide the America hating Obama with literal, dictatorial authority over the government, people and future of the United States? If so, the Chief Justice has assumed his place in history as a traitor of unmatched ability.

"John Roberts is no doubt a brainy man, and that seems to carry a lot of weight among the intelligentsia -- despite glaring lessons from history, showing very brainy men creating everything from absurdities to catastrophes. Few of the great tragedies of history were created by the village *** and many by the village genius. One of the Chief Justice's admirers said that when others are playing checkers, he is playing chess. How much consolation that will be as a footnote to the story of the decline of individual freedom in America, and the wrecking of the best medical care in the world, is another story. There are many speculations as to why Chief Justice Roberts did what he did, some attributing noble and far-sighted reasons, and others attributing petty and short-sighted reasons, including personal vanity. But all of that is ultimately irrelevant. What he did was betray his oath to be faithful to the Constitution of the United States. Who he betrayed were the hundreds of millions of Americans -- past, ...

The commentary on John Roberts's solo walk into the Affordable Care Act wilderness is converging on a common theme: The Chief Justice is a genius. All of a sudden he is a chessmaster, a statesman, a Burkean minimalist, a battle-loser but war-winner, a Daniel Webster for our times. Now that we've had more time to take in Chief Justice Roberts's reasoning, we have a better summary: politician. In fact, his 5-4 ruling validating the constitutional arguments against purchase mandates and 5-4 ruling endorsing them as taxes is far more dangerous, and far more political, even than it first appeared last week. This is a minority view. By right-left acclaim, at least among elites, the Chief Justice has engineered a Marbury v. Madison-like verdict that camouflages new limits on federal power as a reprieve for President Obama's entitlement legacy and in a stroke enhanced the Supreme Court's reputation—and his own. This purported "long game" appeals to conservatives who can console themselves with a moral victory, ...

June 29, 2012 Trump Says John Roberts’ Birth Certificate is Fake Traces Chief Justice’s Birth to Village in Kenya New York (The Borowitz Report) – Controversy swirled around John Roberts today as billionaire Donald Trump claimed that the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court had a fraudulent Birth Certificate. Mr. Trump said that these are the findings of a team of personal investigators he retained just after ten o’clock yesterday morning. According to these investigators, Justice Roberts, who claims to have grown up in Indiana, was actually born in a mud hut in a tiny rural village in Kenya. Furthermore, Mr. Trump claimed, “So-called John Roberts’ father was a village witchdoctor who forced all of the villagers to submit to his shamanic treatments, whether they wanted them or not.” While most of the mainstream media seemed skeptical of Mr. Trump’s allegations, Sean Hannity of the Fox News Channel called them “very concerning,” adding, “It’s time that the American people learned the ...

Interesting profile of John Roberts, chief justice of the Supreme Court in the New Yorker.
Life is not black and white. It is shades of gray. (Not necessarily 50.) John Roberts is well-known to be a very conservative jurist in his capacity as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, yet because he ruled in favor of the Affordable Health Care Act, too many from the left want to throw him a parade, and an equal number of those from the right would rather throw him under a float. Let me remind everyone that this is the same Chief Justice who voted in favor of the Citizens United decision, making every corporation a person in the eyes of the law and directly causing the onslaught of nasty election ads across the board (and remember, we have over 4 months of THOSE to put up with). I am reminded of the wisdom of a line from the final episode of "The Mary Tyler Moore Show," a quote which I often refer to. In response to Ted Baxter showing an unusual amount of courage in defense of his coworkers, head writer Murray Slaughter remarked " don't get mad at a flying donkey when it doesn't stay up ver ...

One of the first reactions, within minutes, was a rather erudite, heavily linked, article here entitled "DID THE SCOTUS CREATE A NEW TAXING AUTHORITY NOT IN THE CURRENT CONSTITUTION?" Go here if you are interested. Poor Judson Phillips has been hanging out at the Supreme Court for a couple of weeks in anticipation. Wasted money on an unused Football yesterday. Hope it was Chinese, so it didn't cost too much! See The football that was not spiked if you are interested. I'll not list all the articles published here yesterday. Or the hundreds of emails I received. Me? I said very little yesterday. I was too flabbergasted to say much. Now, I've had a bit of time f ...
Who vetted an evolving John Roberts? Earl Warren was "conservative" judge before Chief Justice; then one of most lib Justices in history.
Good thing George W Bush appointed and the senate approved that great conservative John Roberts as Chief Justice. Well, at least we don't miss Earl Warren.
John Roberts is not a “traitor to his philosophy.” He is not a liberal. He is, above all else, a very strict originalist, and the Chief Justice of a Court that is acutely aware – and wary – of its role in politics. Understand that his opinion, though certainly not ideal for the Right, contains more ...
Thanks, George W. Bush, for giving us John Roberts, your Trojan Horse progressive nomination for Chief Justice. Thanks a lot. You guys are good. We never saw it coming. Tyranny. The death of individual sovereignty and the imposition of the right of the federal government over the individual. First the S.B. 1070 and now ObamaCare. We should have seen it with the Patriot Act and some of us did. Thanks for laying the shackles on the wrists of those who supported you. Thanks for your betrayal. Thanks. For nothing.
IS JOHN ROBERTS THE SHREWDIST MAN IN AMERICA John Roberts is the most hated man in conservative America. Maybe, but is he the shrewdist man in America.? When the Chief Justice sided with the liberal judges in upholding Obamacare, everyone who calls themselves a conservative when off the deep end. But is there something else at work here? Put yourself in Robert's shoes. Do you really think he likes Obama? I don't. So one of two things happened here. Roberts was indeed intimidated by Obama, and his goon squads, or, he played Obama as a sucker. I think the latter. Remember when Obama dissed the Supreme Court over campaign finance legislation in his State of the Union speech, while the Justices were sitting right in front of him with both houses of congress, and a national TV audience. It was the first time that anyone can remember that a sitting president has done such a thing. And you don't think Roberts remembers this? So if you ask me, Roberts has a little payback due. And he may have just gotten it. Look ...
The sense that John Roberts betrayed conservatives with his vote upholding Obamacare is widespread, but it's probably misplaced. Republicans have already seized on his "tax" label, and the young Chief Justice's interpretation of the Commerce Clause will have ramifications for years. Rush Limbaugh, i...
300 million Americans and the GOP establishment picks John Roberts, the ace of Harvard Law, to be our Chief Justice and Mitt Romney one of only two people in American history to order a health mandate as our nominee for President to run against Obamacare. Genius!
Oh my gawd... if I hear one more person go on about how the SCOTUS decision today makes the "politics" good for Romney- over an issue that is really about one of the greatest constitutional, legal failings by the court in the history of this nation... I am going to shoot somebody. It is not about the next election... it is about a court that failed to do its core duty... TO VOID AN UNCONSTITUTIONAL ACT! And worse yet, the reasons for doing so is that the Chief Justice fears being criticized by the legal academy and the New York Times Editorial Board. Too many of you just don't get it... are you void of all reason? I am ashamed for nearly half the conservative movement for not seeing CJ John Roberts cowardice for what it is.
John Roberts has been selected for the first annual Benedict Arnold Award. Congratulations to the Chief Justice.

Bush aides who initially interviewed John Roberts for the Supreme Court in 2005. Rove asked Roberts to go back in history to name the justice whom he most revered. Roberts’ ...

SCOTUS Obamacare Prediction Will Wilkinson on June 27, 2012, 10:23 PM On the basis of having for a time shared a house with a John Roberts clerk who conveyed to me no useful information about the Chief Justice's cast of mind, here is my pred...
Historians believe that Dwight Eisenhower came to rue appointing Earl Warren, a Republican governor, as Chief Justice, as the Warren court was largely a liberal one. One wonders if George W. Bush is similarly regretting appointing John Roberts as Chief Justice, given that he just handed liberals a big political victory that will have lasting societal import, not to mention stamp Roberts' place in history.
God Bless John Roberts, who with today's decision to join a Supreme Court majority upholding President Obama's 2010 Affordable Care Act, now ranks as arguably the greatest Chief Justice in the history of the court, far surpassing the early 19th century jurist John Marshall, Earl Warren, and -- dare we say it? -- even William Rehnquist.
John Roberts, who based on his age, could be Chief Justice for a very long time just had an Earl Warren moment. He has shown by writing the majority opinion on upholding the Affordable Care Act that he will not be politically predictable.
