BREAKING: Chief Justice Roberts Betrays Us AGAIN With Brutal Ruling
When Chief Justice John Roberts was first appointed to the Supreme Court during the Bush administration, it was believed that he would be a strong conservative voice on the court who would uphold both the Constitution and the rule of law.
Sadly, he has proven to be a vast disappointment, as he has time and again bailed out President Barack Obama’s horrible policies, laws and regulations, most notably by saving Obamacare.
Now Roberts has again betrayed the conservatives that trusted him and the Constitution that he is supposed to uphold by ruling in favor of an Environmental Protection Agency regulation that his court had already struck down as illegal less than a year ago, according to The Hill.
At issue was the EPA’s Mercury and Air Toxics Standards rule, which had been struck down by a 5-4 decision in 2015. Twenty different states, led by Michigan, had filed a plea with the court to live up to its previous ruling and issue a stay against enforcement of the regulation, which the EPA has proceeded with despite the earlier ruling against it.
“Unless this court stays or enjoins further operation of the Mercury and Air Toxics rule, this court’s recent decision in Michigan v. EPA will be thwarted,” read a brief by the states filed with the court on Feb. 23. “A stay or injunction is appropriate because this court has already held that the finding on which the rule rests is unlawful and beyond EPA’s statutory authority.”
But the EPA filed its own brief declaring a stay or injunction to be unnecessary, as it was nearly finished with its efforts to fix the rule so that it would pass the court’s muster.
“The requested stay would harm the public interest by undermining reliance interests and the public health and environmental benefits associated with the rule,” read the government’s brief. “The application lacks merit and should be denied.”
Roberts sided with the EPA, issuing a unilateral decision the next day to deny the states’ request instead of permitting the entire court to weigh in on the issue, thereby allowing the EPA to proceed with the implementation of a rule that had already been struck down.
Of course the administration and its anti-capitalist, anti-energy environmentalist allies cheered Roberts’ swift decision to side with them and will no doubt redouble their efforts to push through more aspects of their job-killing anti-America agenda in the remaining time they have left before Obama and his ilk are thankfully removed from office.
Sadly, there is no telling how long Roberts will continue to serve as head of the court and betray the American people who helped put him there.
