Legislating from the bench, like the rest, while disguised as a conservative.

    This article has numerous factual and conclusive errors. The first is the accusation that the Trump campaign lies as a matter of course. This is patently false. There have been limited instances where bad facts have surfaced, but this administration has been far more truthful than its predecessor. The real reason this is being argued is because Trump has been largely successful in exposing the blatant media bias and partisanship which exists and has been smug in its manipulation of public perception for decades.

    The second lie the article puts forth is that the Constitution is there to represent everyone - not just Citizens of the United States. This is just false. It is a matter of jurisdiction: if you are not a citizen of the United States, your primary allegiance is not to the United States but some other nation. And if you hold allegiance to some other nation, you don't get to vote or participate in US policy matters. This author is merely an apologist for the illegal.

    One thing it did highlight was Roberts' quixotic flip-flopping on major policy decisions. I have to conclude that there is something being held over him, because his vacillation between the progressive side of the Bench and the conservative side seems to only come up with specific policy measures.

    There has Regularly been a question in the Census concerning citizenship and it is reasonable to continue to have such a question.

    Simply put Non-citizens should receive no representation. Nor should the states that they are in be receiving either Federal monies towards Non-citizens or Congressional representation based on Non-citizen populations.

    In a piece on foxnews.com, Ari Fleischer put this whole immigration/census thing into a perspective that I don't think even the most ardent libtard could find fault in. He said "If you cheat trying to get into college, you go to jail. But, if you cheat trying to get into America, you get free college. This is where we are going as a country."

    And what is it with so many Justices appointed by a Republican ending up either being a swing vote or leaning more left than right? I can't imagine Gorsuch or Kavanaugh doing that, but I didn't see Roberts doing that, either.

    "The present administration is different in that it lies regularly, blatantly, heedlessly. In the census case, the Supreme Court, for the first time, called the administration on this behavior—ever so politely and by the slimmest of margins. But still. Now the question is whether it will have the stomach to do so in other cases—or even in this case, if it comes back to the court in the near future."

    Oh really?

    Says Politico, a left of center publication.

    Interestingly it did not find it strange that Roberts, who is supposed be part of the conservative contingent in SCOTUS, is siding more and more with the left.

    I suppose Politico considers that Roberts' "awakening"...

    "Many Latinos fear telling government officials that they or their household members are not citizens, even if they are in the country legally. As a result, experts estimate that asking people on the census whether they and their household members are citizens would cause a significant drop in the number of Latinos who answer the census. That would lead to a significant undercounting of the Latino population. Representation in Congress is allocated on the basis of the census’s population figures, as is much federal spending. So undercounting Latinos would shift political power and government support toward Republicans. " Uh...Hello? It would also be fair! I thought "Representation" was for citizens! This whole article is very left-leaning.

    Roberts fails the American people once more. The vast majority of he American people think that we should know how many citizens are here, even though the legal description calls for "persons". We all know that we probably would never deport the illegals, but don't you think that we should know how many are here. This would show how imperative that it is that we effectively control our border.
