Donald Trump will make his judicial appointments the centerpiece of his re-election campaign.
And now the Supreme Court plays a major role in that strategy.
That’s because there might be a Supreme Court vacancy for this shocking reason.
Conservatives have long distrusted Chief Justice John Roberts.
Roberts is the classic Bush-era RINO.
In 2012, Roberts cast the deciding vote to save Obamacare by exercising outrageous judicial authority to rewrite the law and claim that what Congress and President Obama plainly called a penalty was really a tax.
That tortured reasoning allowed Roberts to claim the individual mandate as constitutional.
Since that case, Roberts has drifted left.
And his liberalism was on full display in a case over the Trump administration seeking to include the citizenship question on the 2020 census.
Roberts sided with the court’s four liberals to send the case back to the lower courts – even though in his ruling, he flat out stated the administration had every right to include the citizenship question on the census.
The delay could imperil the question’s inclusion because of the administration’s hard deadline to produce the census document.
American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp – who is married to top Trump administration communication official Mercedes Schlapp – blasted Roberts’ decision.
“Chief Justice John Roberts “fixed” Obamacare and now he found an I significant excuse to allow those here illegally to help Dems keep the house majority. He lied to all of us and under oath in the Senate. It’s perfectly legal to ask citizenship ? on census,” Schlapp stated.
Schlapp went even further in a subsequent tweet calling on Congress to impeach Chief Justice Roberts.
“I’m for impeaching the Chief Justice for lying to all of us about his support of the Constitution. He is responsible for Robertscare and now he is angling for vast numbers of illegal residents to help Dems hold Congress. Enough Deception from GOP judges on the Constitution,” Schlapp wrote.
Schlapp is pondering a run for Senate in Kansas to replace retiring Republican Senator Pat Roberts and could make impeaching Justice John Roberts a centerpiece of his campaign.
Many grassroots conservatives do not trust Schlapp because the American Conservative Union has long existed as a front group for the GOP establishment to sell left-wing RINOS like Bob Dole, John McCain, and Mitt Romney to the grassroots as conservatives.
But Schlapp was not the only conservative to blast Roberts as a traitor.
Conservative activist Dan Bongino ripped Roberts as a coward who was bullied into submission by the threat of liberal columnists criticizing the Chief Justice in print.
“John Roberts is terrified of the liberal op-ed columnists. They know they hold him captive. They can easily sway his opinions by issuing their “warnings” to him through their columns. He’s not a judge anymore, he’s a politician,” Bongino wrote.
Bongino is onto something.
Many conservatives believe Roberts eventually voted to uphold Obamacare after President Obama waged a very public campaign to preemptively criticize the Supreme Court for trying to undo his signature piece of legislation.
