Chief Justice John Roberts strikes out

Original Article

Posted By: Magnante, 1/31/2020 5:15:46 AM

Chief Justice John Roberts doesn't seem to have the judicial acumen of a traffic court judge. (snip) If the chief justice had instructed the House managers to stop committing perjury, then perhaps their posturing in calling witnesses to get at the truth may have been be more credible. If there is no penalty for perjury, then why have any witnesses? So far, this entire impeachment is just more D.C. political blustering and fake news reporting theater of the absurd that Americans hate at so many levels.

Did Roberts wake up one day to a severed horse head? Given who we know the Democrats really are, it cannot be ruled out.

As I've said elsewhere, Roberts is an excellent example of why No Bush should ever hold public office again, ever. Further, it is also raises the question of appointments to the SC. If a Chief Justice dies, why is a President like, oh, I don't know, we'll just use a hypothetical name like, I don't know...Bush, maybe, allowed to appoint someone as Chief Justice? Why does he have that latitude? Why isn't the President limited to just appointing/nominating a replacement Justice and let the SC decide who will be their Chief? Why? Because Roberts. Thomas might have been Chief....certainly deserving of it.

Especially well said by Mr.Timberlake, but, in addition, he refers to an essay he wrote on January 22, 2020, where he said something so important: "If the chief justice had immediately said 'case dismissed with prejudice', then it would have sent a powerful signal that a future chief justice will have a solid precedent to also never, ever tolerate a sham political impeachment. Such a historic move would have given light weight political hacks pause."

Somebody please start impeachment proceedings against Roberts. This Bush guy is definitely not neutral in his actions. Also, that whole bunch of House loonies who started this mess should be prosecuted for perjury. Roberts should have called them out.

I'm not too sure about this. It appears his role is narrowly defined by the senate. he isnt there to determine truth or lies; but rather to insure the agreed upon process is being followed. Its up to the senate to decide who's lying.

I expect Roberts to be unbiased and clearly, he is not. What seems disingenuous was how he read Sen. Paul’s question and immediately made a decision. No hesitation at all. Sen. Paul did not mention a whistleblower. His question was regarding two individual who appears to have conspired to create an impeachable offense by the President. If that is not pertinent to this case, what is? I would have liked to see every Republican submit the very same question. The Chief Justice showed his hand by denying an answer to a question that needed to be answered. Any reasonable person would want to know if individuals were conspiring in various agencies to impeach this President. This was a very telling decision by the Chief Justice. He is a partisan and now we have proof of it

There has been much speculation about what the liberals and the Democrats are holding over Roberts' head. I will always trust him to side with the liberals and the Democrats AND the terrorists, too, for that matter. During the Roosevelt and Truman years I heard my dad say, ''One day WE'LL get our own Supreme Court. Probably not in my lifetime either.

Roberts hands were tied, mostly by law, true ... but he played more than the role of unbiased referee because he's in it too up to his neck! The SCOTUS Chief Judge is the head of the FISA court and is supposed to be monitoring their warrants. Thus, he's ultimately responsible. I'll bet a million bucks C.J. John Roberts knew ALL about the fake Steele Dossier --- but let the warrants go out anyway. I'll bet he was even briefed by Comey on the coup attempt. That's what they have on him. Also, the good judge knows the whole back story and all the details of the so-called whistle-bower. That's why he blocked Paul Ryan's field goal kick. Nothing could be worse than bug-eyed Shifty Schiff saying out loud: "But Your Honor ... last month you said to me in an email that WE could keep the whistle-blower's name uncovered and it was okay to protect my staff! Don't you remember?".

I want Barr to start using their own words against them. Let them start walking their big talk for a change instead of shooting from the lip, then hiding from the consequences. I think Roberts had every intention of being a decent justice, but then Obama got into the WH. Obama's favorite weapon is extortion and blackmail. It is the only way he could ever win any election he ever had. Something dirty in Robert's life, and the D;s are not afraid to use it. I suspect it is something related to his kids, and I can't blame him for protecting his kids. However, duty should have dictated he resign, not cave to blackmail.

Well that certainly removes any doubt, doesn't it? Up until now it was possible to give Roberts the benefit of some doubt regarding his true position, but this instantaneous dismissal of a perfectly legitimate and relevant question finally drops the cloak. He's one of them. Period.

There was no hesitation when Roberts read Paul's question because he was expecting it. This entire Q&A session has been staged and rehearsed. The Managers and defense have been given the questions in advance---otherwise how could they possibly have slides and video clips ready to play on the spur of the moment? Nadler and the Managers went to the podium and READ answers from a script--- often never looking up. They couldn't possibly have written their long answers in the brief time the question was passed to Roberts. So their answers were prepared ahead of time which means they KNEW the questions ahead of time. So now we can add Fake Q&A sessions to fake news and fake impeachment investigation and fake on and on and on. Who knows what to believe anymore. I'm SO sick of being treated like an idiot with no brain.

Since the day of Roberts' vote on obamacare I have believed that this man is compromised. The corruption at the FISA court (which is his responsibility) and his appointment of the liberal replacement judge was yet another confirmation of that. So when the democrats started talking about how 1) Roberts should rule on matters of law like a one man court for them during this impeachment and how 2) he can break a tie for them....I was sure of it. They have reason to think they own him.

#15 - i know i read somewhere- probably on Lucianne - that Chief Justice Roberts should have recused himself because of his connection to FISA Court, and you wonder why he didn't, but, truthfully, I am really devastated about what is happening to justice in our country. Justice has become a joke; even criminals who are let out without bail, feel free to mock the justice system. I am afraid that this is way globalism works. Just do everything possible to make a country's institutions collapse; even the church.

Sen. Paul should force a vote to overrule Roberts and require the Chief Justice to read Sen. Paul's perfectly legitimate question. If he still refused, he could then be removed (maybe permanently) from this unconstitutional trial with a further Senate vote. See how that works? And why not, the House has done an end run on due process, subpoena power, executive privilege, 6th amendment rights, etc., through an unconstitutional impeachment, thereby empowering the Senate to void the Constitution on the spot in a sham trial.

Good and perceptive article. I only saw the first instance of Roberts being CINO... when he treated the (victim) White House representatives the same as the Dem House (bullies) lawyers. That always bothered me. Go only after the bullies or let the 'victim' clean his clock without censure but Never, never, NEVER treat the bully the same as the victim. For the Bully, that's a win. Which, of course, let to Nadler's slander.

Everyone in Washington DC and many, many across our land. know that the rumorblower is Eric Ciaramella, formerly worked with Biden, went to CIA, weasel Brennan “detailed” him to the NSC where McMaster took him as his aide and put him in a position where he “read and heard everything”. He has not been fired (no retaliation for so-called “whistleblowers”), has gone back to the CIA, and has no legitimate reason to have his identity protected. Especially when he tried to take down the duly-elected President of the United States. ERIC CIARAMELLA.

I believe the dirt on CJ Roberts (and his wife) was the illegal adoption of their two children from Ireland. Apparently only Irish residents can adopt Irish orphans and Mr and Mrs Roberts clearly were not when those tow children were adopted. Plus, I think Roberts got intimidated when the left stream press ridiculed the outfits his children wore during his confirmation hearing. Putz.

He's compromised by either the illegal adoption of his Irish kids or the fact that there is the name John Roberts on one of the logs of Epstein's Lolita Express. He also considers himself an elite and hates President Trump. I'd bet the farm he watches CNN and PMSNBC. He probably got a real kick out of that CNN skit the other night with Don LeMon and the other two nameless clowns mocking us PDT voters. They will all pay the price in November.

'The Leftist Elites' in DC - as well as their fellow libs around the country - can be extremely nasty and cruel. The CJ wants admiring glances and smiling faces when he walks into all those DC gatherings and parties. These libs (who, at all cost, want to keep their stranglehold on Washington society) are the best in the world at intimidating and threatening dire social and other consequences if you don't do as they demand - and everybody knows it.

Claptrap for the boobs. FTA: "If the chief justice had instructed the House managers to stop committing perjury, then perhaps their posturing in calling witnesses to get at the truth may have been be more credible." Turn off "Perry Mason". Perjury is not for the "judge" to call out. The House Managers are not witnesses. They are presenters and advocates with a point of view, like lawyers in any case. That they misrepresent "evidence" to support their version of truth is common practice. Would you want your lawyer to go to your trial to ensure your guilt was established? Would you want the prosecutor to continue with the knowledge the defendant was innocent? This is all a political pantomime. The Senate will not convict PDT. Run House Managers out of office.

What lawyers say in court is not under oath and their statements are not testimony. A lawyer may be sanctioned for lying to the court (i.e. to the judge), but misstatements of law or evidence of record are not perjury. Both sides, incidentally, are given wide berth for colorful characterizations and hyperbole in oral summation before the jury. Roberts was also right not to make an on-the-fly legal judgment about the privacy rights of the whistle blower that would be irreparable and terrible precedent if this whistle blower or others go to court on this or a similar case. What I trust the Chief Justice will not do is infer from his role as the presiding officer the right to become the first judge in history to vote in the case of a hung jury. The Vice President’s legislative (not quasi judicial) power to do so is expressed in the text of the Constitution.

I suspect Roberts is one of those political animals who derives more satisfaction from manipulating a political accommodation and compromise than he would from any outright victory based upon principle, regardless of the importance of the principle. I know guys like that. You can't count on any of them. They will sell you out to try to balance the outcome, regardless of how morally bankrupt the other side may be. On judgment day, Roberts would stand between the archangel Michael and the devil and say "can't we come to some agreement?"

Nancy Pelosi throws a public temper tantrum

Two different events played out on the floor of the House on Tuesday night. The first was President Trump’s powerful, moving, uplifting, and optimistic State of the Union speech. The second was the immature, arrogant, intemperate, and really disgusting temper tantrum in which Democrats indulged. The most obvious sign of a complete mental breakdown on the left was Nancy Pelosi’s conduct during the speech. Her petulant behavior could not be missed because she was seated behind the president, to his left. Whenever the camera was on Trump, it was on Pelosi too. Pelosi's hissy fit first showed itself when Pelosi refused to give Trump the traditional formal introduction.

Karma is knocking on the door at the Democratic National Committee’s Washington, DC headquarters. The party of the plutocracy masquerading as the savior of the underclass, a coalition of grievance-fueled identity groups not completely comfortable with each other, may finally face the reckoning it so richly deserves. The only thing that unites eco-fanatics with the blue-collar labor unions, blacks with gays and Jews, or socialists with Wall Street financiers is the quest to harness the power of the state to their own interests. The optimistic take on the current fiasco rendering Democrats incapable of announcing the results of the Iowa caucuses is that the party is hopelessly incompetent.

If Steve Bannon is correct (and I think he probably is), Michael Bloomberg has no intention of occupying the Oval Office; his real plan is far more devious and frightening.

The Iowa caucus data operation just crashed and burned. That means that it could take days to get find out who actually won the Democratic contest – the first of the 2020 presidential election cycle. Gobsmacked candidates have come out to throw confetti, drop balloons, and declare "on to New Hampshire!" There's nothing else to do except to declare victory and move on. No one really knows, right? Joe Biden's lawyers have sent the Iowa caucus organizers a sternly worded letter ordering them not to reveal the winner until the results are cleared with them.

Rep. Adam Schiff, the lead House impeachment manager, warned on Monday that if President Trump's dealings with Ukraine are not impeachable offenses, then nothing would stand in his way from attempting bolder power grabs -- going so far to claim Trump could use Alaska as a bargaining chip with "the Russians" for support in 2020.

Climate activist Greta Thunberg has been nominated for the 2020 Nobel Peace Prize by two Swedish lawmakers. Thunberg, 17, captured global attention for leading a student strike in her home country of Sweden to raise awareness about climate change. Jens Holm and Hakan Svenneling, both members of Sweden's Left Party, argued that Thunberg’s international tour to combat climate change is worthy of the 2020 Nobel Peace Prize. In nominating Thunberg, Holm and Svenneling said the teenager had “worked hard to make politicians open their eyes to the climate crisis.” They argued that reducing emissions and complying with the Paris Agreement is “an act of making peace.”

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., said on Tuesday that she wouldn't attend President Trump's State of the Union address, indicating that doing so would legitimize what she saw as lawless conduct under his administration."After much deliberation, I have decided that I will not use my presence at a state ceremony to normalize Trump’s lawless conduct & subversion of the Constitution," she tweeted on Tuesday afternoon. "None of this is normal, and I will not legitimize it. Consequently, I will not be attending the State of the Union."

It’s always a good time, but it’s never the “right time” to quit when you’re a smoker. You can always find a “reason” to keep doing it – “I still have a few left in this pack,” “I have a stressful week coming up,” etc. But the news of Rush Limbaugh’s diagnosis with advance lung cancer is as good a time as any to quit. If you smoke, call it a day. If you know someone who does, get on their case. It’s a cliché, but it’s also true: never quit quitting. Limbaugh’s shocking announcement Monday left fans stunned, wondering how to react to the announcement that a man

Nikki van den Heever, a caucus precinct captain for former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg, tried to talk down an Iowa woman who was incensed to find out — in real-time during a caucus after she’d signed a card supporting him — that the candidate is openly gay. “Are you saying that he has the same-sex partner? Pete?” the woman says in the clip, which was posted to both Twitter and Reddit early Tuesday morning. “Yes,” van den Heever responds. “Are you kidding?” the woman says, and upon being told Mayor Pete is married, says “Then I don’t want anybody like that in the White House.

As I was about to begin writing about the sun shining on President Trump's re-election efforts, a dark cloud passed over my Twitter feed announcing that Rush Limbaugh has advanced lung cancer and will be taking time off for medical treatment. What terrible news for the 30 million–plus weekly "Ditto-heads," faithful listeners to his daily three-hour commentary on news, politics, sports, and popular culture. Rush "made the complex understandable," as he liked to say, using irreverent humor to make his points. It was effortless for Rush, doing all of this with "half his brain tied behind his back."

WASHINGTON —The latest on the president's State of the Union speech (all times local):11:05 p.m. The White House and President Donald Trump's reelection campaign are lashing out at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for ripping up the president's State of the Union speech. No sooner did Trump finish his address Tuesday night then Pelosi tore it in two, right on the dais behind him. The president had appeared to snub the House speaker before his speech when she extended her hand to him, and he turned back around without acknowledging it. Tim Murtaugh, the communications director for Trump's reelection team, responded: “She might as well rip up any plans for attracting

The Navy SEAL commander, who clashed with President Donald Trump over disciplining of retired naval officer Eddie Gallagher last year, will reportedly step down from his post later this year. According to The Intercept, Rear Adm Collin Green, the commander of the Naval Special Warfare Command, will be resigning in September. Green's retirement follows the controversial court-martial of Gallagher who was convicted of posing for a photo with the corpse of a dead ISIS fighter. But a court martial cleared him of murder charges when a medic confessed to the Afghanistan war crime after military prosecutors granted him immunity.

This year’s Iowa caucus ought to have gone more smoothly than any caucus ever before in Iowa history. Then, a gremlin threw the whole caucus into utter chaos. Or was it just a gremlin? At this point, inquiring minds are getting paranoid about whether the DNC is desperately trying to run away from Bernie’s apparent momentum. The problems started with that elusive Des Moines Register poll. Keep in mind that the Des Moines Register already brought shame on itself late last year(snip)The unofficial story is that the poll shows that both Bernie Sanders and Andrew Yang polled so high that the Democrat establishment made the decision to yank the poll,

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Tuesday ripped up her copy of President Trump's prepared remarks at the conclusion of his State of the Union address. As Trump finished speaking and most lawmakers stood to applaud, Pelosi stood, took the printed copy of Trump's speech and tore it in half. She placed the shredded copy in a stack on the dais as Trump made his way to greet members of Congress. Asked afterward why she tore the speech up, Pelosi told reporters it was "the courteous thing to do given the alternative."
