A high-profile conservative leader called Thursday for the impeachment of Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. after he provided the crucial fifth vote in the Supreme Court decision heading off President Trump’s goal of including a question on citizenship on the 2020 census. Matt Schlapp, chairman of the American Conservative Union and husband of top Trump White House aide Mercedes Schlapp, said the ruling showed the chief justice was not the conservative-minded jurist he’d been touted to be, noting his previous decision essentially preserving Obamacare. “I’m for impeaching the chief justice for lying to all of us about his support

I was shocked and disappointed by this Bush choice when he single-handily saved Obamacare. His further rulings only added to the insult. He is a fraud, pure and simple. Impeach, yes!

So what if he doesnt believe the reason for the question? It’s legal. Impeachment is not a good idea. But ignoring the ruling is a possibility. There has to be a new way to overrule bad Supreme Court decisions.

I thought Robert's reasoning in the citizenship question case was contrived, and question his motives, which seem insincere. What a vicious fraud this man has turned out to be! It is unbearable to see his grin, after he has stabbed us in the back.

Funny how conservatives hold of the SC as the ideal arbiter that is now beholden to any political party, then, when a justice BEHAVES as if he is not beholden to conservative ideals... get rid of him. You all have to realize that the job of a Supreme Court Justice is to examine the arguments put forth to them, then weigh on those arguments using the Constitution as the measuring stick. If the arguments were flawed (and some have said in this case they were) then the court SHOULD NOT impose their political will on the process. Conservative Justices should NOT be expected to counterbalance the legislature by fiat by liberal justices. They should be expected to do their job in an intellectually honest manner. And, impeaching a Justice would open up a floodgate of future impeachments that are purely political and that would destroy the intent of the SC, effectively rendering the SCOTUS as another popularly elected body. File this under 'careful what you wish for'.

Regardless of what you think of Roberts' opinion, this is a really bad idea. Even the mention of it fuels the argument that Trump is a tyrant.

Instead, Let Trump on the next nomination pull one from his TV show and nominater the next Chief Justice of the Supreme Court and tell Roberts he is fired form that role. Ther is no law or consitutional requirement that the Chief Justice is appointed for life. So fire him from that role and let Roberts assume his comfortable position with lying Kagan, racist, sexist Soytomeyer and Clueless in DC Beyer (asumes the passed out drunk at the State of the Union Ruthie is having a nice tea with Satan).

I hear that the premise of Robert's change of mind is that Obama has something over him. If this is true then I also believe that Trump knows about it. When they clean up the lesser guards, then they'll go after the big boys and girls. After that, the residuals will be free or gone. Why did Lindsey do a 180? Who was gone when that happened. Hint.

This could be another type of bait and switch. The SCOTUS has given the Executive the option of coming back before it with a 'better' explanation. There are a series of 5/4 Conservative decisions coming down. The Court loses a lot of its legitimacy and respect if it appears to be one sided. This works mostly on the Conservative side. The Liberal justices don't seem to care. But there it is. It is possible CJ Roberts wants to have the 'saucer effect' to cool down tempers and then approve it anyway. Balance this with his doing away with Federal meddling with jerrymandering. My advice, be patient.

It appears to me that Roberts, as Chief Justice, is more concerned about how "his" court will be perceived in history. He apparently does not want it to be too conservative or too liberal but "balanced". Thus, his decisions are based not on the law or Constitution, but on whether there have been too many conservative or liberal decisions already passed down. Don't ever rely on Roberts, he will disappoint.

Roberts should have refused his SC nomination knowing his children were illegally adopted. If the tables were turned I would have done the same but would also know it was wrong as it is illegal to adopt children with an Irish mother outside of Ireland. It is called privilege. He and his wife had the financial and demographic privilege to do so and did. But, it clouds his rulings and makes him susceptible to blackmail.

Bush appointed Alito. That was a great pick. Give credit where it's due. Personally, I think Roberts was a OK pick, even if he's not always delivering the opinions that conservatives would like. His legal reasoning, to the extent I've followed it, does not stray too far off into left field. A disinterested observer on Mars might even think it's not a bad idea for the chief justice to be a centrist kind of guy.

Police have ramped up patrols at the Staten Island Mall as they investigate five attacks by groups of young girls on other girls in the past 10 days, according to reports. Four of the attacks took place on June 21 and were committed by a group of black and Hispanic girls aged 12 and 13, according to the Staten Island Advance, which cited a law enforcement source.
