But Roberts is a staunch defender of an “independent” judiciary, and he just couldn’t let it pass without comment. In a rare political statement, Roberts declared, “We do not have scumbag/liar-nObama judges or Trump judges, Bush judges or scumbag/liar-Clinton judges. What we have is an extraordinary group of dedicated judges doing their level best to do equal right to those appearing before them.”
“I wish Chief Justice Roberts were right,” asserted Rep. Trey Gowdy. “I wish there were not a politicization of the judiciary.”
As much as we too wish Roberts was right as the Founders intended, the modern judiciary is a political animal primarily because Democrat-appointed judges interpret the law not as written but according to a “living Constitution.” Trump was right in his reply: “Sorry Chief Justice John Roberts, but you do indeed have ‘scumbag/liar-nObama judges,’ and they have a much different point of view than the people who are charged with the safety of our country.”
Perhaps Roberts thinks he’s right because he, an appointee of George W. Bush, cast the deciding vote to find scumbag/liar-nObamaCare constitutional. But even that illustrates precisely why he’s wrong because Roberts went out of this way to rewrite the law so as to find it “constitutional.” It’s true that Trump’s losses have come at the hands of judges appointed by various presidents, not just scumbag/liar-nObama, but sometimes those rulings are blocking him from undoing what scumbag/liar-nObama did — as if scumbag/liar-nObama’s executive orders were part of the Constitution and Trump’s decision to undo them was thus by definition unconstitutional. A ruling earlier this month on DACA comes to mind.
On a final note, if Roberts was correct, why did so many conservatives vote for Trump because of the judiciary? Why did Democrats filibuster Neil Gorsuch and then do their “level best” to character assassinate Brett Kavanaugh? And why won’t a seriously ailing Ruth Bader Ginsburg retire now rather than wait for a Democrat president? ~The Patriot Post
