Seems totally ridiculous that our government, and indeed Country, cannot ask a basic question of Citizenship in a very expensive, detailed and important Census, in this case for 2020. I have asked the lawyers if they can delay the Census, no matter how long, until the…..— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 27, 2019
…..United States Supreme Court is given additional information from which it can make a final and decisive decision on this very critical matter. Can anyone really believe that as a great Country, we are not able the ask whether or not someone is a Citizen. Only in America!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 27, 2019
It’s a game these play:
I’m for impeaching the Chief Justice for lying to all of us about his support of the Constitution. He is responsible for Robertscare and now he is angling for vast numbers of illegal residents to help Dems hold Congress. Enough Deception from GOP judges on the Constitution.— Matt Schlapp (@mschlapp) June 27, 2019
This can’t be happening.
I was told that the primary reason to vote for the GOP in the 2020 election is because we are going to need True Conservatives on the Supreme Court:
“WASHINGTON — Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. has sat in the center seat on the Supreme Court bench since his arrival in 2005. But only this term did he assume true leadership of the court.
He made clear his influence in a pair of stunning decisions on Thursday, joining the court’s liberal wing in one and his fellow conservatives in the other. In providing the decisive votes and writing the majority opinions in cases on the census and partisan gerrymandering, he demonstrated that he has unquestionably become the court’s ideological fulcrum after the departure last year of Justice Anthony M. Kennedy.
The key parts of both decisions were decided by five-justice majorities, and the chief justice was the only member of the court in both. …
Conservatives expressed bitter frustration on Thursday about what they saw as the chief justice’s unreliability, if not betrayal.
“Chief Justice John Roberts disappointed conservatives today — to a degree not seen since he saved Obamacare in 2012 — when he sided with the court’s four liberals to second-guess the Trump administration’s reasons for adding a citizenship question to the census,” Curt Levey, the president of the Committee for Justice, a conservative activist group, said in a statement. “The census decision will surely deepen the impression that Roberts is the new Justice Kennedy, rather than the reliable fifth conservative vote that liberals feared and conservatives hoped for.”
Look, John Roberts got that puff piece in The New York Times. Who could have ever predicted this would happen after Arizona v. United States killed all the state immigration laws?
I’m stoked to see how Roberts votes on all these state abortion laws coming out of Alabama, Georgia and Missouri that are being hyped by conservatives as proof that they are “winning” the culture war. Conservatives have been milking the evangelicals for the past 40 years. If John Roberts can’t even sign off on the U.S. Census asking a basic question about American citizenship, does anyone seriously believe he is going to overturn Roe v. Wade or support anything meaningful on immigration?
Mainstream conservatism is nothing but a scam by wealthy people to get things like tax cuts and deregulation. Feel free to prove me wrong.
