A report has come out from a clerk in the Supreme Court describing what took place when the Texas case came up. Chief Justice Roberts said he did not give a “f–k” about precedent. He refused to accept the case claiming “we have riots” which in fact the entire Black Lives Matter movement has been protesting the very immunity police have been given not by Congress, but by the Supreme Court. It is the Court that has blood on its hands for creating immunity that was complained of in the Declaration of Independence.
Chief Justice Roberts swore an oath to defend the Constitution. He has abandoned that oath and is a disgrace to the nation. He has condemned the country to the rise in civil unrest that may even rise to the level of breaking the country apart. Civilization = rule of law. He has abandoned countless centuries of precedent which distinguishes tyranny from civilization.
More than 2000 years ago, Thrasymachus warned Socrates that there is no justice. It is always the will of those in power regardless if it is a democracy, aristocracy, or a tyrannical form of government. Justice Roberts is a disgrace to the entire Western Civilization. He should step down. He has violated his oath of office and is no longer qualified to sit in that court! He should go down as the second Justice to be impeached. The only Justice to be impeached was Associate Justice Samuel Chase in 1805. The House of Representatives passed Articles of Impeachment against him; however, he was acquitted by the Senate. He acted like a prosecutor rather than a judge. Nonetheless, the impeachment raised important constitutional questions over the nature of the judiciary. It was the termination of a series of efforts to expand judicial independence under the Constitution. The dispute also defined the limits of the impeachment power. What Chief Justice Roberts has violated was clearly the prohibition of the judiciary from engaging in partisan politics and confined judicial independence which Roberts has ignored.
