Ever since the American people elected him, Donald Trump has faced attacks on every front.
The swamp launched an all-out effort to remove him from office.
But what a Supreme Court Justice just did may be the biggest betrayal yet.
Chief Justice John Roberts Stabs Donald Trump In The Back
San Francisco Judge Jon Tigar – who Barack Obama appointed in 2012 – sided with the liberal activists in striking down Trump’s new asylum rules.
Trump fired back noting that liberals tried this every time he put new immigration policies in place.
They run to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals because they know the rogue judges on the court will hand down rulings based on their far-left ideology and not the law.
“I think it’s a disgrace when every case gets filed in the 9th Circuit,” Trump said. “That’s not law, that’s not what this country stands for. Every case that gets filed in the 9th Circuit, we get beaten and then we end up having to go to the Supreme Court, like the travel ban, and we won.”
Chief Justice John Roberts fired back by defending the liberal judges who rule in lawless fashion.
He told the massive lie that Obama-appointed judges were not political activists but independent-minded jurists.
“We do not have Obama judges or Trump judges, Bush judges or 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. That independent judiciary is something we should all be thankful for,” the Chief Justice falsely claimed.
Donald Trump Responds To Chief Justice Roberts Lie
Trump called Roberts out for this plain as day lie on social media.
The President tweeted:
Justice Roberts can say what he wants, but the 9th Circuit is a complete & total disaster. It is out of control, has a horrible reputation, is overturned more than any Circuit in the Country, 79%, & is used to get an almost guaranteed result. Judges must not Legislate Security…
….and Safety at the Border, or anywhere else. They know nothing about it and are making our Country unsafe. Our great Law Enforcement professionals MUST BE ALLOWED TO DO THEIR JOB! If not there will be only bedlam, chaos, injury and death. We want the Constitution as written!
Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley also shut Roberts down.
He noted that Roberts said nothing when Obama attacked the Supreme Court during the 2010 State of the Union.
Chief Justice Roberts rebuked Trump for a comment he made abt judge’s decision on asylum I don’t recall the Chief attacking Obama when that Prez rebuked Alito during a State of the Union
In that speech, Obama lied about the Citizens United decision which allowed for free speech in elections.
Chief Justice Roberts Praises Obama For Attacking The Supreme Court
Obama accused the Supreme Court of being bought and paid for by corporate shills.
He lied and claimed the decision allowed foreign corporations to pour unlimited money into elections.
This was not true.
But afterwards, Roberts praised Obama and said he had an “obligation” to attack the court for decisions he disagreed with.
“Some people, I think, have an obligation to criticize what we do, given their office, if they think we’ve done something [wrong],” Roberts said during a 2010 public appearance. “So I have no problems with that. On the other hand, there is the issue of the setting, the circumstances and the decorum. The image of having the members of one branch of government standing up, literally surrounding the Supreme Court, cheering and hollering, while the court, according to the requirements of protocol, has to sit there, expressionless, I think is very troubling.”
But Roberts is a loyal swamp creature.
And since Obama was a President with the swamp’s seal of approval, Roberts nodded along with Obama attacking the court.
Robert proved his loyalty to Obama and the swamp when he rewrote Obamacare to claim that the individual mandate passed Constitutional muster because it was a tax.
During the Obamacare debate, Obama himself repeatedly said this was not the case.
But Roberts knew his job was not to rule on the merits of the law, but to preserve the swamp’s grip on power.
So he fabricated a rationale for preserving Obamacare.
Of course Roberts – who is the swamp’s chief defender – turned around and blasted Trump for doing the same thing that he praised Obama for doing.
