    Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts cites the horrendous Korematsu and Plessy v. Ferguson cases as profiles in judicial courage to right the wrongs of the past. But when given a chance to right an unconstitutional wrong on abortion, he wimped out.When the draft Supreme Court decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization was leaked in May, the vote to overturn Roe v. Wade and its replacement, Planned Parenthood v. Casey, was at 5-4. After Friday’s decision, it’s still 5-4.Roberts is the man who refashioned the “taxing power” of Obamacare so he wouldn’t have to spike the first black...

    John Roberts, or someone on his immediate staff, is the one who leaked the Dobbs decision a month ago. The votes to repeal Roe vs Wade and Casey vs Planned Parenthood was confirmed back in February, but Roberts has always wanted a compromise of some sorts that kept R v W. Roberts panicked and decided to leak the ruling & put pressure on the other 5 justices. ROBERTS LEAKED THIS, IS NOW DRAGGING HIS FEET ON RELEASING THE DECISION, VIOLENCE FROM THE LEFT ROBERTS HOPES WILL FORCE 1 OF THEM TO CAVE
  • Chief Justice Roberts should lead by releasing the Dobbs decision

    Washington Examiner ^ | June 15, 2022 | Nicole Russell
    Several weeks ago, someone with access to the Supreme Court’s inner workings leaked a draft of Justice Samuel Alito’s opinion on Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization. Written in February, the draft decimated the legal foundation of abortion as a constitutional right and overturned the federal right to an abortion as guaranteed by Roe v. Wade. Although this draft did not represent a final decision, the leak itself was obviously meant to stir up controversy . It was perhaps also likely designed to persuade undecided justices to shift their votes. Regardless, it was incredibly damaging to the reputation of the...

    American Greatness ^ | June 9, 2022 | Jeffrey H. Anderson
    The attempted assassination of Justice Brett Kavanaugh makes it abundantly clear that Chief Justice John Roberts is playing with fire in refusing to issue the Court’s majority opinion in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the case that could potentially overturn Roe v. Wade. The potential for someone to make an attempt on a justice’s life was predictable once the draft majority opinion, in a shocking move, was leaked—but the threat appears more serious in the wake of a deranged person having arrived at Kavanaugh’s home with the stated intention, and with weapons in tow, to kill him. It is...

    As we eagerly await the decision Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the Supreme Court has updated its calendar to set two new decision days — on Monday and Wednesday of next week. While the Supreme Court typically waits until the very last day it’s in session to release its biggest decisions, there had been some speculation that the leak of Justice Samuel Alito’s draft opinion in Dobbs might spur the Court to release its decision sooner rather than later. So far, however, Chief Justice John Roberts has sought to convey a business-as-usual approach, and with about 30 other cases...

    Roberts’ overtly political actions aren’t preserving the image of the court in the eyes of the American people; they’re destroying it.A majority of U.S. Supreme Court (SCOTUS) justices allegedly still maintain that the 1973 decision in Roe v. Wade, which federally legalized abortion in the United States, is unconstitutional. According to a Saturday report from The Washington Post, “as of last week, the majority of five justices to strike Roe remains intact, according to three conservatives close to the court.”Published in Politico last week, the leaked February draft opinion written by Justice Samuel Alito makes clear that Roe “must be...

    Joe Biden wrote to his son Hunter and others close to him using the pseudonym “Peter Henderson” – a fictional Soviet Union-era spy in several Tom Clancy novels who infiltrated the US government, emails show. The messages contained on Hunter’s abandoned laptop appear to indicate the then-VP started using the fictitious mole’s moniker in October 2016 while forwarding a YouTube video to his son Hunter, brother Jim, daughter-in-law Hallie, as well as his sister and longtime political strategist Valerie Biden Owens. Biden sent the message using an email address with a username of “67stingray” — a clear reference to his...

    The five-vote majority needed in the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey remains intact months after Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito's leaked draft majority opinion was written, according to a report. The leaked draft majority opinion penned by Alito is dated February 10 and has almost certainly changed multiple times in the almost three months since it was written, but three conservative sources close to the Court say that the votes supporting the decision remain unchanged, according to reporting from the Washington Post. The justices set to join Alito's opinion include Clarence Thomas, Neil...

    Pro-abortion protesters marched to the homes of Supreme Court Justices John Roberts and Brett Kavanaugh Saturday night for a "Candlelight vigil for Roe v. Wade." The protest began at a local café in Chevy Chase before they began their march to the homes of Roberts and Kavanaugh, with a flyer for the event stating that they will protest outside the houses "for reproductive freedom." Protesters can be heard chanting "Keep abortion safe and legal" during the protest. Images of coat hangers could also be seen chalked on the street where the march took place. A left-wing group called ShutDown DC...

    Former Attorney General Bill Barr suggested a special counsel may need to be appointed to discover who released the draft Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade and said the leaker could potentially be charged with obstruction of justice. Chief Justice John Roberts has ordered the marshal of the court to begin an investigation to discover who leaked Justice Samuel Alito’s ruling striking down the landmark 1973 decision, but Barr said that might not be enough.

    Apparently, the Supreme Court leaker did not only leak secret case developments with Politico. CNN reportedly has more details on the Supreme Court’s discussion on the upcoming Roe v. Wade decision. Chief Justice Roberts, who reportedly joined the liberal judges on the court in the upcoming decision, was trying to barter with the conservative judges in their negotiations. Roberts is reportedly willing to uphold the Mississippi law that would ban abortion at 15 weeks of pregnancy. HotAir reported — With an apparent 5-3 lineup set to overturn Roe based on Justice Samuel Alito’s draft majority opinion in Dobbs, Chief Justice...

    Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. said Tuesday that the leaked draft opinion proposing to overturn Roe v. Wade is authentic but not final, and that he is opening an investigation into how it became public. “To the extent this betrayal of the confidences of the Court was intended to undermine the integrity of our operations, it will not succeed,” Roberts said. “The work of the Court will not be affected in any way.” While Roberts’s statement said the draft provided to Politico was genuine, “it does not represent a decision by the Court or the final position of any...

    The US Supreme Court reportedly voted to END Roe v Wade in a DRAFT OPINION by Justice Samuel Alito according to a report leaked to Politico this evening. The draft opinion was leaked to the press – something that is dangerous and unprecedented. Of course, there are reports that the leaker is a liberal clerk who hopes to change the outcome of the case. More news broke last night. According to the report Chief Justice John Roberts sided with Democrats in the decision. This is not a surprise considering Roberts’s liberal voting record. This also gives Democrats a target. They...

    After several days of bad news on the redistricting front, including a bad decision in North Carolina for the GOP-drawn map there, a big win has been delivered to Republicans. The US Supreme Court has ruled 5-4 to halt a lower court order in Alabama that it must redraw its previously passed Congressional map.That means a 6-1 Republican to Democrat map will now go into effect in 2022, and given the makeup of the Supreme Court, there’s no reason to believe it gets struck down at any point past that.BREAKING: By a 5–4 vote, with Roberts joining the liberals in...

    Is it time for Politico founding editor John F. Harris to don a jester's costume? A week ago we saw the spectacle of Harris recommending that Joe Biden reverse his sinking political fortunes by trash talking. And on Thursday, he took yet more silly sauce to urge Chief Justice John Roberts, despite being sixteen years younger than the retiring Stephen Breyer, follow suit by no later than this summer.

    Here’s the quick and dirty take of the U.S. Supreme Court’s two COVID-shot mandate decisions on Thursday: If one works for a private company with more than 100 employees, the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) may not order them to get jabbed with a COVID shot, but if you’re a health care worker at a health facility that receives Medicare and Medicaid funding, you can. Apparently, Americans cease to have bodily integrity and religious rights if they work at hospitals that serve Medicare and Medicaid patients, but not if they work for private companies. There’s a word for that:...

    The U.S. Supreme Court blocked President Joe Biden’s vaccine mandate on large private businesses through the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) on Thursday, but upheld a Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) mandate. The decision on the OSHA mandate was 6-3; the decision on the CMS mandate was 5-4, with Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Brett Kavanaugh joining the court’s three Democratic appointees in upholding it. As Breitbart News reported last week, the Court had appeared skeptical of the mandates during oral arguments, especially the OSHA mandate, as Solicitor General Elizabeth Prelogar struggled to identify the statutory...

    Chief Justice John Roberts used his year-end report on New Year’s Eve to denounce the threats being made against the Court and its members by Democratic politicians and groups, including threats to pack the Court to force an immediate liberal majority. Roberts referred to such threats as efforts to exercise “inappropriate political influence” on the Court in contravention of our constitutional values and traditions. We have been discussing the ramped up threats from Democratic leaders that the Court will either vote with the liberal justices on key issues or face “consequences,” including court packing. Recently, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.),...
