Turncoat conservative Chief Justice John Roberts arrived at his impregnable island fortress today.

Today a Supreme Court source told Salon that Roberts actually wrote much of the dissent, as well as the majority. opinion.

Here’s another view.

    I hate this man. He’s done enormous damage.

  • mcc

    And Barry’s at Camp David:

    Twenty-two people have died, and residents around Washington, DC are struggling to navigate roads whose signals have not worked for days. If not for the July 4th week, the disruption would have been even worse. But President Obama has left the messy job of handling the emergency to state and local officials. Damage that has been described as “worse than some hurricanes” has not moved Obama to interrupt his air-conditioned holiday.

    This dereliction of duty is not happening in distant New Orleans, but right in the heart of the nation’s media and political center. Yet the mainstream media has not bothered to comment on Obama’s absence. As for the Obama campaign itself, it hawked t-shirts to “keep cool” while the Romney campaign actually took the disaster seriously, organizing a drive for donations of basic necessities to stranded residents, such as canned food and water.

    So Roberts is lecturing on the history of the Supreme Court. Wonder if he’ll include the public’s perception of the court after he sold out the American people to win friends in the left wing media. Of course Roberts’ need to be admired is more important than his oath to uphold the Constitution (of the United States, not South Africa or Malta or France).

  • Multitude

    Nothing like a retreat to his people, the useless children of pedigree and privilege. Justice Dred Roberts gets to spend some time in his global elite social circles, partying, wining, dining all in exchange for a few hours a day to the nobility’s offspring.

    Since Roberts voted to upheld the mandate, we should just send him the tax increase. This monstrosity will only bring more corruption, keep the status quo and amassing wealth for the democratic mafia bosses and their mob.

    TREASON…Find the bribe…Void the ruling…Supreme Court Jester Roberts did what the New World Order told him to do. As a Roman Catholic Roberts obeyed a foreign entity, the Sovereign Oder of Malta , the fraternal military knighthood of the Vatican. Roberts is not only in rebellion to the US constitution, he is party to a conspiracy against the Pope. Either that or the Pope himself remains a Hitler youth fascist reviving Dr. Mengele from the grave…and the prophesy of Saint Malachy is upon us….> http://youtu.be/PsLlMVo_9mQ

  • FurryGuy

    Roberts was reportedly trying to find a way to make the SCOTUS less controversial and partisan so he ruled the way he did. The irony is that the decision is turning out to be exactly the opposite of what he hoped for.

    The Tree of Liberty is looking mightily parched after this prime example of judicial activism decision.

    In Washington DC we don’t call this corruption! We called lobbying! It’s a system of checks and balances.

    George Soros gives me a large check. I give Roberts the cash and he adds it to his Swiss Bank Account Balance. There you have it – a system of checks and balances!

    It came down to what one lefty said “can 5 white guys deprive the first Afro-american President the signature legislation of his Presidency, and gutting same”?He couldn’t and he didn’t.

    We better get to work and stop focussing on these distractions. Once again Obama and Axel and Jarrett hav driven the awful Obama tote off the front pages and off the dinner table.
    there are only about 20 weeks left.
    We have to get the voter reg rolls fro our respective precincts and contact those that don’t vote. In 08, 56 % of eligible voted. we need some of the remaining 44%!
    Somebody must know these folks in your block or so.
    It is what I can think of to do. forget the polls, they are owned by donks, the questions are asked by donks, the tabulation is by Donks, and the reporting by Donks. so is it any wonder that Obama is 49% to 43 %.
    Forget roberts

    Jim Hoft if off his rocker. Stop attacking the Chief Justice ,, He has other cases to hear and I’d prefer he not be pissed off

    As for the Obamacare ruling , Roberts ruled completely conservative , YES COMPLETELY CONSERVATIE ……. YOU just dont like the outcome . YOU wanted Roberts to throw the entire Obamacare out without any rational

    The mandate being ruled unconstitional would NOT have stopped Obamacare, just that mandate , which does not fund but a tiny bit of Obamacare

    Thomas voted to have the mandate unconstitional but was not going to vote to throw out the entire law. And I suspect most of the conservative judges werent either.
    So Roberts did the right thing, he called a tax what it is a tax
    Only in the LIBERAL World does someting look, operate and have the effect of a tax but isn’t a tax
    WE ALWAYS SAID IT WAS A TAX and now that it’s ruled a tax Hello you want to deny it……for no reason other than you are confused about what the alternative was

    Repealing Obamcare was always the ONLY way to get rid of it. Always
    Now , because of Roberts, it going to be easier to repeal it

  • bigkahuna

    #40…Are you high ????

    1. He Changed the law to call it a tax…Something it doesnt call it in the bill itself. He made it up and changed a law…NOT interpreted.

    2. There was no severability in the bill. If the madate was found unconstitutional as it is…The whole bill was trash.

    3. If it was called a tax it wouldnt not have been passed even by libtards who were bribed to vote as it was.

    4. If it was a a tax the bill by law has to originate in the house not in the senate as this disaster was.

    5. Plain old common sense tells us this is illegal, immoral, and a clusterf*uck that cant be read or managed.

    6. If it is a right….Tell me one other right granted us is FORCED ONTO US at threat of a fine, tax, penalty, jail or whatever ????? Freedom of speech ?, Life ? pursuit of happiness ? Liberty ? What right requires 16,000 IRS agents to force you to accept ?

    7. This Bill is a freaking joke. The ruling should be grounds for impeachment as should anyone who voted for it. Screw them all. Come take me to jail I won’t pay the tax, fine or fee.

    8. Americans should simply ignore the law as Obama does laws and make up our own as Obama does.

    9. Republicans should place riders in every bill that comes through that gives waivers to anyone who asks for it, repeals taxes, increases Fees on Liberals, judges, hollywood actors, and liberals in general, repeals waivers for unions.

    10. Pass l;aws repealing federal employees and congressional healthcare and force all of them into Obamataxdontcarecrap.

    Roberts cares about the rich fat cats more than anything. He knows this is a big giveaway to private insurance companies.

    Promoting unanimity will not be an easy task, Roberts acknowledged, after years of “the personalization of judicial politics.” He said that he had to emphasize the benefits of unanimity for individual justices, in order to influence what he called the “team dynamic.” “You do have to [help people] appreciate, from their own point of view, having the Court acquire more legitimacy, credibility; [show them] that they will benefit, from the shared commitment to unanimity, in a way that they wouldn’t otherwise,” he said. Roberts added that in some ways he considered his situation—overseeing a Court that is evenly divided on important issues—to be ideal. “You do need some fluidity in the middle, [if you are going] to develop a commitment to a different way of deciding things.” In other words, on a divided Court where neither camp can be confident that it will win in the most controversial cases, both sides have an incentive to work toward unanimity, to achieve a kind of bilateral disarmament.

    The article is long but go read it, anyway. Roberts is all about consensus among SC justices, reputation (his own and that of the SC), appearing non-partisan, appearing non-political, being liked, being remembered favorably by history…he’s all about appearances and not so much about law as per the US Constitution. He’s another f****** narcissist with skewed principles and a misdirected sense of purpose.

    Rather than Roberts being worried about his or the court’s popularity, or his being bribed, that may be. I believe a simpler answer is that the Obama machine made an offer Roberts couldn’t refuse and that no one will ever hear about. If it were any other administration, I’d say that’s a far fetched statement but with the Chicago style politics these people play, its entirely within the realm of possibility.

    This man’s actions were criminal. This man is a criminal. He was horribly wrong and inappropriate in where he went–from a mandate as presented, to offering it back as a legitimate tax. And the price we may pay going forward is utterly unforgivable. He should be removed from the bench. He will find he has few friends going forward. He may want to take up permanent residence there. And we are forgetting about Kagan who should have recused herself as she did with the Arizona case. She is a criminal as well. We have ventured into a time when there are no standards, no rules, no accountability–when our officials seem to think they can do whatever they please—and they are getting away with it!

    will ask yet again, does “unsigned joint dissent” mean
    something different in legalese terms vs common sense??

    hence imho, and albeit presented to appear to be divided,
    sure seems to me as if Justice Roberts was not alone..

    [Short version: the joint dissenting opinion by Justices Scalia, Kennedy,
    Thomas, and Alito refers to Justice Ginsburg’s concurring opinion as
    a “dissent,” is written as though it were the majority opinion, and
    says that if the individual mandate were really a tax, they’d have to
    address the close constitutional question of whether it was a direct
    tax -something they don’t address even though, as the case was
    ultimately decided, the issue was squarely presented
    .]

    bit more here..

    [The opinions released Thursday contain clues the justices were deeply divided and perhaps uncertain of the outcome. For example, the dissenting opinion of Justices Antonin Scalia, Anthony M. Kennedy, Clarence Thomas and Samuel A. Alito Jr. does not criticize the chief justice’s controlling opinion. Instead, it refers to Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s dissent on the individual mandate.]

    okay, is it just me, or are they conflicting statements??

    and a reminder of what else, aside from taxes
    death panels, is coming up the road here.. 😯

    aah, so many questions, answers, not so much.. /s/

    John Roberts is currently in position similar to Benedict Arnold after West Point. Keep in mind that Arnold was a hero to the Revolution, instrumental in a number of hard-won victories and severely wounded in battle. But in his mind Arnold struggled between the cause of American independence and personal recognition. In the end, in one fateful decision he joined his former foes.

    We are not in a shooting war and John Roberts need not fear the noose, but he does share a problem with Arnold. The Americans made Arnold’s name synonymous with treachery and the British didn’t trust him. I’m sure the Roberts decision on ObamaCare was seen by him as Solomonic. It wasn’t, and as his decision is analyzed and as sources in the Supreme Court expose the deliberations, Roberts will be seen as a man who put self before principle by his previous allies. The Left will take what he can give them but always view him with ambivalence.

    The composition of the Court also makes it impossible for Roberts to recover his previous position as a moderate Constitutionalist. There are four Liberal votes on the Court who vote as a bloc on important issues that divide Conservatives and Liberals. Roberts can guarantee a Liberal majority in these cases, but can’t reliably deliver a Conservative one. By crossing enemy lines, he may have no choice but to join their side wholeheartedly if he wishes to leave any legacy except that of a failed traitor.

    We may, unfortunately, have to live with that.

    His sudden flip flop might have something to do with his adopted “designer” children. If he bent any laws concerning the adoption of those children then he could be threatened with removal from the bench, prosecution, etc. if he did not vote the way he was instructed to do.

    All of this was engineered at Harvard. Joanthan Gruber who wrote both the Romney and Obama plans, also David M. Cutler, Joseph P. Newhouse, Frank A. Sloan, Katherine Baicker, all with degrees from Harvard. And Judge John G. Roberts is a Harvard Law School graduate. As was President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, who gave the health insurance industry their special privilege of excluding the cost of employer-paid health insurance from the federal income tax, the nation’s costliest tax subsidy, that cost the Nation $246 billion in 2007. This is what enabled them to suck in most of the population and become so powerful that their interests have totally eclipsed the interests of the American people. And the Harvard School of Public Health perpetrated the scientific fraud that their “wellness and prevention” lifestyle garbage is based on.

    Some people have gotten this wrong.

    The SOVREIGN MILITARY ORDER OF MALTA were thrown off of Malta and reside in Rome (Not the Vatican) and they are not the same as the English Derivative of the Knights Of Malta who are on Malta at the moment which is the pro-Masonic variant.

    The one there at the moment are allied with the Knights Templar (Red Cross on a white field) elements from whence Masonry comes from, whilst the Sovereign Military Order Of Malta (SMOM) were from the Knights Hospitaller (Whits Cross on a Red field…opposite of the Templars) who were the original order who ran the hospitals in the Holy Land before the Banker Oriented Templar Order/s came to rape sack and pillage the Holy Land for personal glory and gain.

    These groups have always been rivals and the English Templar based heierarchy have been assuming their name (Knights of Malta) in their own recreation of the order. The SMOM in Rome is different from the one that is on the Island of Malta which Roberts has visited/escaped to.

    Anyone interested in the difference should research the wars of the Guelph Vs Ghibbeline controversies of the Medieval period. Guelph = Red Cross on White Field whislt Ghibbeline = White Cross on Red Field.

    Not saying the SMOM isn’t corrupt now or anything but they seem to have hisorically been opposed to the Templars whos Masonic based Orders are now entrenched in Freemasonry.
