The pathetic John Roberts is transparent as hell despite his attempts to disguise his decisions which are CLEARLY designed to sabotage Trump’s actions.

Interesting take on these events. But I have a problem with the fact that the judiciary will not be impartial and use this new oversight of policy and regulations to steer society to their liberal and socialist goals. Same sex marriage as an example.

What is John Roberts’ problem? Any links to Sorors or the Koch Brothers?

I was thinking links to Epstein, since there were rumors about how his kids were adopted.

Does the Federal Gov. appropriate more money to a State if the population is larger? Are Federal Grants involved? It seems Dems. are fighting for more population in cities.

I’ve said from the start they should have just reprinted the 2000 census - exact same questions - and dare anyone to make a case that it wasn’t racist/political/whatever then, but it is now.

Traitor Roberst “problem” is apparently that he wants to be an 0bama Judge.

Yes, the whole purpose of their blocking the citizenship inquiry on the census is to have more representation in regions loaded with illegals.

If you can't tell that people are illegal, they obviously must be counted as citizens for apportionment of representatives. That is the whole purpose of the Census.

Dilute citizens with illegals when carving out districts, and dilute citizens with illegals' votes on every election day.

Little Johnny Roberts proves once again that a SCOTUS judge can be bought - and at a bargain rate. Move over Roger Taney you’ve been supplanted as worst decision maker.

“Trump administration a political defeat on the census, the four liberals justices unwittingly agreed to lay the groundwork for a new world in which agencies’ explanations receive strict judicial oversight”

Sure a political loss. But if this could expose the administrative state to losses in courts, individuals and states will benefit. It doesn’t really matter who is the chief executive in most instances when individual must contend with ruthless out of control police state agencies and bureaucracies. IRS, EPA, FBI, CMS, BLM, DEA, ATF abuse citizen rights every day. The regulations are enormous and no executive can know the details that destroy lives everyday.

Atlantic seemed to be unhappy that it was the liberals have given everyday conservatives a chance to attack corrupt federal agencies. But, I would imagine that the liberals on the court wanted the political win. If we can weaken the federal bureaucracies and the police state, let them have it.

Thank God for Clarence Thomas.

I watched his hearing.

The libs went ballistic about a supposed joked about a pubic hair on a can of pop.

Before and ever since then they have been playing the sexual harassment card, while ignoring the fact that Billy-Bob, the Kennedy’s rape and murder of women.

I feel like a lot of people here didn’t bother to read the article, as evidenced by their just going off on tangents about John Roberts.

I believe he is being blackmailed over his adoption of two kids. anything I say is real speculative about the reason for the blackmail over the adoption.

Since legislatures began passing "hate crime" laws.
