Justice Roberts
« on: February 10, 2019, 04:55:51 PM »
He sold out again on a Louisiana law that limited abortions.

His decision on Odumba care was so stupid I was convinced then that he was owned.  It's now confirmed.  This is why they are giving RBG daily transfusions of infant blood, most likely.  Heck she might already be dead.

Of course. The SC is the "queen" piece on the oligarchial chessboard. Scalia may have been checkmate. What were some of the originalists' writings contra a "supreme" court?

Not that it's ok, but the matter has been distorted a little. The court did not really rule on the law. It is only temporarily blocked until the court can actually take up the case next year.

That's the ruling that's going to matter. He might be a swing vote then, or for all we know RBG will be dead and Roberts won't matter.

There have been rumors that he is being blackmailed. I don't know if I buy that. I think he was just another bad pick by a GOP president as Souter, Kennedy and O'Connor also turned out to be.

Agreed. Did you see the look on his face when he came out the door after voting for Obamacare? He looked very scared; I think he'd been threatened.

At least Alito and Thomas, picks by President Bush and his father, have proven somewhat reliable. I hope Gorsuch and Kavanaugh prove the same. We need some concrete decisions to say for sure - even with Roberts, we don't know which way he'll go on the final vote. I would like to see very strongly pro-life Justices appointed when the next vacancies come. Judge Pryor is one of the strongest.

Anyway, good news is lots of progress on the state level, e.g. Ohio, Tenessee etc: sooner or later, the Courts will be forced to take an explicit stand. "COLUMBUS - Ohio has never been so close to helping to overturn the landmark abortion access decision, Roe v. Wade, advocates and opponents of abortion access say. With a promised signature from Gov. Mike DeWine and backing from the state's most powerful anti-abortion lobbyists, Ohio could soon become the next state to ban abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected, which can be as soon as six weeks gestation. The bill that former Gov. John Kasich vetoed just weeks ago is making a comeback.

Ohio's GOP-controlled Legislature fell just one vote shy of the higher threshold needed to override Kasich's veto in December. Without Kasich's opposition, the bill is expected to pass easily." https://www.cincinnati.com/story/news/politics/2019/01/29/heartbeat-abortion-ban-return-ohio-right-lifes-support/2667770002/

And "NASHVILLE, Tenn.--A proposed Tennessee bill would criminalize abortions and attempted abortions as a Class C felony." https://fox17.com/news/local/tennessee-bill-would-charge-anyone-who-performs-or-attempts-abortion-with-a-felony

Everything depends on prayer for real victories to come and come fast. I hope Roberts stays strong and makes the right decision for life when the final vote on the Louisiana case comes. Anyway, it's unfortunate. I believe there are only 3 abortionist killing centers in Louisiana and if Roberts had voted to allow the law to go ahead here, only 1 killing center would have remained. Is that right?

Please listen to the frequent messages and take heed of the directions given from Our Living Lord and Our Loving Lady from around the world here: https://maryrefugeofholylove.com/ Great things are at stake. Please consecrate your life to the Blessed Mother so that the Kingdom of God may come, "Ad Sanctam Trinitatem per Mariam, Ut adveniat Regnum Deum, adveniat Regnum Mariae, ergo TOTUS TUUS ego sum, MARIA" See http://www.maria-domina-animarum.net/en/flowers/1-250

Mary, our Heavenly Mother, implores those who receive Holy Communion Daily, or at least Weekly, to Offer their Lives. TEXT OF THE LIFE OFFERING, adapted and pluralized: Dear Lord Jesus, before the Holy Trinity, Our Heavenly Mother, and the whole Heavenly Court, united with Your most Precious Blood and Your Sacrifice on Calvary, We hereby Offer our whole Lives to the Intention of Your Sacred Heart and to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Together with our life, we place at Your disposal all Holy Masses, all our Holy Communions, all Rosaries, all acts of consecration, all our good deeds, all our sacrifices, and the suffering of our entire life for the Adoration and Supplication of the Holy Trinity, for Unity in our Holy Mother Church, for the Holy Father, Pope Francis the First; and for His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI. For all the Cardinals of the Holy Roman Church, for all Bishops of the Universal Church that they may be true Apostles and Shepherds; and for Priests, Nuns and Monks, for good Priestly and Religious Vocations, and for All Souls until the end of the world. O my Jesus, please accept our life Sacrifice and our offerings and give us Your grace that we may all persevere obediently until death. Amen." https://marianapostolate.com/life-offering/ It is recommended that you make this Life Offering as soon as you feel ready, and to renew it from time to time.

Please read the Blessed Mother's amazing promises in the link: A simple effective way for thousands of us to save millions of souls. The Doctors and Apostles say if we save even just one other soul through prayer and sacrifice, we also ensure the salvation of our own! Let us Offer our Lives in Sacrifice to Jesus and Mary Today, to save, if it were possible, all souls everywhere.

From the look on his face, I think his family members were threatened.

To go after a Justice after a controversial ruling would be too obvious. His nephew dying of a heroin overdose? etc? Believable.

A Nun said once to my wife and I that America is hopelessly liberal to the core.

The Supreme Court is a text book case of it. No matter who you put there they invariable turn out to be liberals just with different flavors.
