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.




 After Years Of Stagnation Under Obama 
Household Income Hits 50-Year High

Image result for money

Former President Barack Obama got plenty of praise for shepherding us through the recovery from the 2008 economic crisis. However, those on Main Street, USA, knew the truth — things weren’t any better than they had been when George W. Bush left office.

As The Weekly Standard reported in 2016, median household income when Obama came into office in 2009 was $56,731. In 2015, six years into his presidency, that number was $56,516 — a decrease of just over $200.

By the time he left office, it’s true that media household income had risen to $59,471 — but that was essentially the same as it had been in December, 2007, at the end of the “Great Recession” and just a few weeks before Obama took office, when it was $59,549.

So, how’s The Donald doing?

Well, as Investor’s Business Daily reported, a new study from Sentier Research found that the median household income in April was $61,483 — a 50-year high.

That’s up from $59,471 in January of 2017.

The firm tracks income using census data and adjusts for inflation — so even a slightly weaker dollar doesn’t account for the increase.

Bad News For Dems: Household Income Hits All-Time High Under Trump … And He's Getting Credit For It!!! 

Household Income Hits All-Time High Under Trump, And He's Getting Credit For It

A new report shows that the median household income has climbed 3% since President Trump took office. It's another sign of a strong economy, and at least one poll shows the public credits Trump for...

That’s great news for the country, but maybe not the best news for Democrats.

“This is just another indication that the economy has notably strengthened under Trump. And polls show that the public’s mood has brightened considerably as a result,” Investor’s Business Daily reported.

“The latest IBD/TIPP Economic Optimism Index is 53.6. This index has been in positive territory (anything over 50 is optimistic) since Trump took office. The Quality of Life Index, meanwhile, hit a 14-year high in May and the Financial Stress Index is at an all-time low.”

That economic data is followed by a lot of polls that seem to show that the “blue wave” expected in the November midterms breaking and rolling back into the sea.

A new Reuters poll found that a generic Republican would beat a generic Democrat by six points. Back in March, the Democrats were up by nine points. A CBS poll found that Democrats had a two-point advantage on the generic ballot — hardly “wave” material.

The CBS poll also found that 68 percent of Americans believed Trump’s policies deserved at least some of the credit for the economic situation, with 35 percent saying he deserved a “great deal” of the credit.

Sixty-four percent of respondents rated the economy as “somewhat good” or “very good.” In a CNN poll, 57 percent of voters said that “things are going well in the U.S.” In February, that was 49 percent.

Perhaps the most important figure: Under Obama, when Gallup asked whether it was a good time to find “a quality job in the U.S.,” the highest number that administration ever achieved was 45 percent. Under Trump, that number is 67 percent — the highest number in the 17-year history of the poll.

While Trump’s personal numbers haven’t seen the same bounce, they’re still up — and that’s the important thing. Thanks to the relentless campaign of personal attacks against him, Trump’s stated approval rating has always been a lot lower than it probably is.

Don’t believe me? Just ask Hillary Clinton. For all of the personal barbs and attacks, 2016 ultimately came down to the economy. So will 2018 — and that’s not good news for the Democrats.
