The worst joke in corporate media is their continuous claim that Chief Justice John Roberts is among the “conservatives” at the Supreme Court. Time and again he has proven that he is a left-leaning centrist at best, often siding with the progressive court members on decisions of great consequence. He single-handedly preserved Obamacare, and now he’s attempting to do the same with Roe v. Wade.
According to Fox News and a report from the Washington Post, Roberts continues to lobby at least two of the five conservative Justices who are voting to strike down the abominable abortion law once and for all. His targets, according to reports, are Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett.
The justices set to join Alito’s opinion include Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barrett.
Chief Justice John Roberts, who has at times sided with the liberal wing of the court, still appears set to oppose the decision, with the report noting that Roberts was still attempting to persuade Coney Barrett and Kavanaugh to take a more incremental approach to allowing abortion restrictions.
Roberts has said he wants to overturn the appeals court decision on Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization which limits abortion to the first 15 weeks, but he doesn’t want to overturn Roe v Wade altogether. It’s a middle-ground approach that would weaken Roe v Wade and allow states to restrict up to the Dobbs v Jackson limit, but not eliminate federal abortion protection altogether.
Since a draft majority opinion by Justice Samuel Alito was leaked last week, there has been turmoil across the country. Pro-abortion activists have gone to the homes of Justices to protest, firebombed pro-life facilities, and caused mayhem near the Supreme Court. And it seems as though we’re just at the beginning stages of the protests that may escalate beyond the riot levels of the summer of 2020 following the release of the George Floyd video.
As Bonchie at RedState noted, Roberts is a coward:
Of note is that if you remove the viability standard of Roe and Casey, then they cease to have any enforcement mechanism. That’s all well and good if you are pro-life, but at that point, how can it be justified under the law to not overturn the two decisions completely? The answer is that it can’t be justified, and Roberts is just a spineless figure looking to appease the left while admitting he does not have the ability to preserve Roe the way he really wants to. It would simply pour gasoline on the fire of the abortion debate–instead of coming to some principled conclusion.
But while the legal aspects are bad enough, the decision to keep hunting for a “compromise,” while holding back the majority decision that is clearly already decided, is outright dangerous. It is encouraging the left to get more and more violent in an attempt to influence the court. We’ve seen the results of that over the last week. This needs to stop now. The decision needs to be released, and Roberts needs to get over his obsession with “protecting” the court when his action or lack thereof only helps to delegitimize it.
I’m of the opinion that Clarence Thomas wouldn’t be speaking out about the majority not being bullied if this wasn’t a done deal. The government wouldn’t be putting up no-climb fencing around the Supreme Court if this weren’t a done deal. They all know what’s coming, and enough is enough. Release the decision, and stop letting the pressure build.
John Roberts is trying to build his legacy for the history books. He doesn’t want it all overshadowed by a decision that he didn’t personally support, so he’s trying to sway the court to the middle like the pale and feckless weakling that he is.
Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our new GiveSendGo. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Truth Based Media
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
