John Roberts delivered Donald Trump a defeat that left conservatives up in arms

When Donald Trump nominated Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, Republicans thought they had a durable conservative majority.

But conservatives just got some bad news.

And that’s because John Roberts delivered Donald Trump a defeat that left conservatives up in arms.

Chief Justice John Roberts delivered conservatives another defeat when he sided with the court’s four liberals in striking down a Louisiana law requiring abortion clinics to have hospital admitting privileges.

Roberts claimed the decision had to stand because the court ruled four year ago a similar law in Texas and struck that restriction on abortion down.

Roberts wrote, “The legal doctrine of stare decisis requires us, absent special circumstances, to treat like cases alike. The Louisiana law imposes a burden on access to abortion just as severe as that imposed by the Texas law, for the same reasons. Therefore Louisiana’s law cannot stand under our precedents.”

In that 2016 case, Roberts voted to uphold the Texas law with Justice Anthony Kennedy providing the deciding vote.

But in 2020, Roberts changed his vote and claimed the court could not overturn past precedent.

Chief Justice John Roberts is turning out to be the biggest disappointment for conservatives in decades.

Roberts’ only guiding principle in deciding cases is trying to please the Fake News Media and the Democrat Party so they don’t write and say nasty things about him.

In all the big cases Roberts is now a reliable vote for the Left.

And he is a permanent reminder of the failed legacy of George W. Bush.

Donald Trump won the 2016 Republican nomination running against the failures of establishment Republicans like George W. Bush.

Trump would cite Roberts – who betrayed conservatives with the 2012 Obamacare decision – as example of the type of judge he would avoid nominating.

    The ancient eastern reincarnationist religions Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism all predate Christianity, all oppose abortion, all teach ahimsa, or nonviolence towards humans and animals alike to the point of vegetarianism, all are vegan-friendly, and all teach that abortion and war are the karma for killing animals, and that therefore, we cannot end abortion nor bring about world peace until first we abolish the killing of animals.

    In 2004, on the Democrats For Life email list, Maria Krasinski mentioned a poll which found animal activists evenly divided on abortion. This either indicates animal rights really are a bipartisan cause which conservatives can support alongside liberals, or it indicates many liberals are uncomfortable with abortion!

    In 2014, Kristen Day of Democrats For Life said: “Roughly a third of the Democratic Party is pro-life. And while many do not call themselves liberal, they share the values which seem to identify with liberalism, particularly a commitment to helping the vulnerable and providing a social safety net.”

    The Democratic Party platform should support: Animal Rights, Defending the Affordable Care Act, Ending Citizens United, Ending Marijuana Prohibition, Giving Greater Visibility to Pro-Life Democrats, Gun Control, Net Neutrality, Raising the Minimum Wage to $15 an Hour, Responding to the Scientific Consensus on Global Warming, and a Sustainable Energy Policy.

    Lee. Trump didn’t pick John Roberts. Hello?

  6. Lee says:

    That’s not what I meant. Trump pics have turned liberal so we the people should be able to vote them out

  7. Scott27 says:

    We do vote for SCOTUS justices by voting for the president. If we vote for Trump he will replace Ginsberg with a constitutionalist justice like Brett Kavanaugh, and if we vote for Biden he will replace her with an activist justice that legislates from the bench.

  8. Lee says:

    Just like we vote for president and senators and congressmen we should vote for Supreme Court justices

  9. Dr. J.D. says:

    However, it is unfortunate that Roberts doesn’t stay consistent in his decisions. In one case he rules one way and in a nearly identical case he rules the complete opposite. That is the sure sign of a judge that doesn’t know what he’s doing, or he is playing politics. No SCOTUS judge should ever be like that.
