Supreme Court Of The United States Census Decision is Wrong But Typical of Justice Roberts: But Was He?

Comment by Jim Campbell

On this very issue, writer Daniel Greenfield is wrong.

The U.S. Census is under the purview of the federal government, therefore Justice Robert’s decision was correct. (Source: U.S. Federal Census Service)

Justice Roberts was appointed by President George W. Bush.

They are selected with the concept in mind that they will interpret the United States Constitution as written.

In this case Justice John Paul Roberts did so.

It falls under the U.S. Department of Congress.

If the census were left up to an equally inept organization think what that would do to the numbers and the parties thereof in the U.S. House of Representatives.

This is not to say that states are forbidden from conducting their own census,’ how else would they be able to waste their taxpayer’s money?

Let’s start the census question discussion with one point.

The topic was never a legitimate subject for scrutiny by courts. We’ve had a citizenship question in the past.

The particular lefty tactic of constantly litigating the administration’s motives on decisions that had been carried out in the past with no fuss is wholly inappropriate

Justice Roberts, instead of rejecting this line of attack, affirmed it.

But that’s not surprising because Justice Roberts will do the right thing a lot of the time, but not when the pressure is high enough.

When lefties really make something a or his own social views interfere, he defects to the other side.

Even lefties though their census legal attack was remarkably weak. But no matter how weak the legal reasoning is, Justice Roberts can be expected to back lefties on the truly big and high pressure decisions.

This was one of them.

Roberts joined great legal minds like Kagan, Sotomayor, Ginsburg and Breyer in trying to psychoanalyze the true basis for the census question.

The basis for the question however has no relevance.

The legal standing of it is the same unless there is clear evidence of an agenda that the court has an actual right to challenge. That’s not the case here. The campaign against Ross is a fishing expedition meant to block the appearance of the question

By reaching his decision, Roberts has quite possibly blocked the appearance of the question. And that settles the issue. 

It’s a betrayal, but one conservatives have learned to expect.

I am firmly devoted to bringing you the truth and the stories that the mainstream media ignores. Together we can restore our constitutional republic to what the founding fathers envisioned and fight back against the progressive movement. Obama nearly destroyed our country economically, militarily coupled with his racism he set us further on the march to becoming a Socialist State. Now it's up to President Trump to restore America to prominence. Republicans who refuse to go along with most of his agenda RINOs must be forced to walk the plank, they are RINOs and little else.
