Chief justice Roberts to Congress: Give me more money!

Chief Justice John Roberts raised the specter of “Scrooge’s ghosts” in his year-end report on the state of the nation’s judiciary, requesting additional funding for the nation’s cash-strapped courts.

“I would like to choose a fresher topic, but duty calls,” said Roberts, who also discussed the judiciary’s fiscal state in last year’s report. “The budget remains the single most important issue facing the courts.”

Roberts focused his report on an appeal for Congress to approve the $7.04 billion appropriation request made by the Judicial Conference, a collection of judges responsible for directing the administration of the courts.

I believe that no one should have a lifetime job, therefore the Supreme Court Justices should not have a job for life, who monitors what they do and who gives them their performance appraisals.

Benedict Arnold is his name. Traitor to the core. 

He has switch sides.


I know more about our constitution then this so called guy. It doesn't take a degree to know this.

I wonder what the NSA has on him for him to become a trader to the Constitution! 

Despicable excuse of a human being.   May he cursed thoughout History.


Well said, Ralph.

Earl Warren and now this grinning Judge. How can he live with himself for what he did ??????

Screw this guy!! I agree he wants pay back time now this communist pcs of shit sold Americans down the road with Obamacare even after the country said we didn't want it,  he should be arrested the same time Obama is !! How much of this money is a raise for him hes asking for ?

This man only deserves a jail cell!

No Mr Roberts! The single most important issue facing the Courts is Justice for All! I guess he forgot the pledge of allegiance.

why should we give any of them a raise,,,They have the power and the authority and it's their duty to tell the president when he is overstepping his bounds,,,and yet they remain silent,,,and the democrats go along with what ever Obama says constitutional or not,,,even sometimes treasonous,,,,and the only ones who seem to have our backs are a handful of republicans(NOt Rhinos)and they are the only ones who want whats right for the people,,,all of these politicians are up there to line their pockets,,,to hell with the constitution or the rule of law,,,or any rules for that matter,,,,They are building FEMA camps to hold us all,,,,they have plotted against and are plotting against our constitution and our way of life,,,,they just bought another 1.6 rounds of ammo,,,thats enough for 5 bullets for every man woman and child,,,,and I just don't see it changing short of a coup,,like they have in india and places like that ,,,,we have tried talking to them but our words fall on deaf ears,,,,maybe we need to catch our elected officials away from their post and explain it to them in a way they can understand,,,,Obamacare is treason plain and simple and what the democratic party is doing is committing treason,,,and should be held accountable,,,,,,

Why should anyone in government get a raise? This has been the lousiest set of leaders in our history. Had I done my job as poorly as they, I'd have been fired a long, long time ago. Pay cuts would be more correct.

At the very least, no raises until the budget is balanced and the debt paid off.

 REVEALED: Here’s What Dirty Cop Mueller And His Team
Of Liberal Hack Lawyers Are Costing Taxpayers Per Month

The Mueller ‘Russia’ investigation was built on a foundation of lies and cost taxpayers $6.7 million within the first 5 months!
Thanks to AG Sessions for recusing himself, corrupt swamp creature Rosenstein appointed Special Counsel Robert Mueller to target Trump and his team in what is the greatest witch hunt in US political history.

To add insult to injury, Americans are paying over $1 million a month, watching in horror as an innocent president is investigated yet the real criminals–Hillary, Lynch, Obama, Holder, Rice, McCabe, Comey et al walk freely.

The Justice Department released a report Tuesday detailing the cost of Mueller’s investigation from May 17th 2017-Sept 30th 2017.

In four and a half months, American tax payers have paid MILLIONS of dollars for Mueller’s hacks.

Expenses include:

Direct and Reimbursed Expenditures (note 1)
Personnel Compensation and Benefits (note 2) $1,709,597
Travel and Transportation of Persons (note 3) 223,643
Transportation of Things 156
Rent, Communications, and Utilities 362,550
Contractual Services (note 4) 157,339
Supplies and Materials 26,442
Acquisition of Equipment (note 5) 733,969
Total SCO Expenditures (note 6) $ 3,213,695

Mueller’s witch hunt also cost the Justice Department about $3.5 million on work attributable to the ‘Russia’ investigation, according to the DOJ report, totaling $6.7 million!

Americans are mad as hell!

We are paying millions of dollars to pay Trump-hating lawyers who are hell bent on taking down a president who won the election in an electoral landslide all because of a Hillary-funded garbage dossier!

One of the FBI agents was recently removed for sending anti-Trump text messages to an FBI lawyer with whom he was having an affair with.

Another Mueller hack was just revealed to have praised Sally Yates for defying Trump’s travel ban.

In an email obtained by conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch, Andrew Weissmann, special counsel Robert Mueller’s right hand man, praised then-acting attorney general Sally Yates for standing up to President Trump’s travel ban order.

We have been reporting on Mueller’s liberal dream team for months.
So have numerous other media outlets.

We reported in August that the entire team was Trump haters. Here is a summary of the Mueller team –
