Of course, Census citizenship question matters*

U.S. Chief Justice John Roberts mimics Sandra Day O’Connor, Anthony Kennedy as swing vote

On Friday, the Justice Department said it will continue researching for legal grounds to include a citizenship question on the 2020 Census. Earlier President Trump said he is “very seriously” considering an executive order to get the question on the form.

Although the Dems are hard at work attempting to politicize it, the issue of incorporating the citizenship question on the U.S. Census form, has far reaching ramifications that affect us all.

Congressional districts are apportioned based on the number of voting citizens as opposed to residents.

The Hill released the findings of a Hill-HarrisX survey conducted in late April, showing 60% of Americans support having the citizenship question included on the census form. Support cut across all demographics.

The U.S. Census Bureau explains the history of place of birth, citizenship, year of entry questions, noting the citizenship question originated with the 1820 Census, place of birth originated with the 1850 Census, and year of entry originated with the 1890 Census. In 2005, the USCB transferred to the American Community Survey replacing the decennial census long form.

The citizenship question should not be controversial. Most nations ask it, including Mexico and Canada. The United Nations recommends the practice. The United States previously asked about citizenship as well, but since 1950 the question has not been included in the census forms that most people receive. (A much longer, more detailed questionnaire sent to a small sample of households chosen at random includes the question, which has not previously been a hotly debated topic revving up the ACLU and Democrat presidential candidates until the advent of Trump Derangement Syndrome.

Last week, a divided Supreme Court — with Chief Justice John Roberts disappointingly swinging left again and joining four Democrats — ruled that the Trump administration’s stated reason for including a question about citizenship on the 2020 census — to help the Department of Justice better enforce federal voting rights laws — was a pretext. The “evidence,” Chief Roberts wrote, “tells a story that does not match the explanation that” Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross provided. The case has been sent back to the Department of Commerce.

Justice Clarence Thomas, in a dissent joined by Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, wrote that Ross’ decision “was legally sound and a reasoned exercise of his broad discretion.”

When his vote holds massive and long-ranging implications such as with the 2012 opinion upholding Obamacare, Roberts caves.

President Trump said his administration is exploring a number of legal options, including issuing an executive order which have been used by all presidents — with Bill Clinton topping the list at 364.

    Chief “justice” John Roberts. A compromised individual who is owned by the bad guys. Look what he did with Obamacare. At the last minute, he caved.
    Chief “justice” John Roberts. In charge of the FISA court. And, despite knowing now that the FISA judges were duped into signing off on countless FISA warrants, there is just the sound of crickets.
    We also know, as does Roberts, that one of the FISA judges, Contreras, was and is good buddies with Peter Strzok (FBI, but clandestinely also answers to another 3 letter–a lot of that going around).

    Chief “justice” John Roberts and the “adoption” of the two children.
    Transported between multiple countries to keep it on the down low.
    Marriage of convenience???

    Nothing escaped Obama’s weaponized government spying.

    Remember what Mad Maxine Waters said on a televised interview?
    Obama has collected a massive database of information on Each and Every American citizen, like nothing ever done before.
    Roberts is owned.

    Notice that President Trump mentioned Roberts during the July 4 festivities. In the same manner that he speaks of China’s Xi and
    NoKo Kim and countless other leaders. It’s not that they have snowed him—-no—-he understands fully, and They know He knows.

    It’s the Art of War. Just a little book of tactics used centuries ago. Sun Tzu.
    President Trump has been using those very tactics during all of his adult life.

    Meanwhile, Closer to home:
    Some police officers in Tempe, Ariz., say they were asked to leave a Starbucks coffee shop on the Fourth of July because a customer complained they “did not feel safe” with the cops present, according to reports.

    Five officers were drinking coffee at the Starbucks location prior to their shift beginning when a barista asked them to move out of the complaining customer’s line of sight or else leave, the Tempe Officers Association wrote in a series of Twitter messages.

    “This treatment of public safety workers could not be more disheartening,” the union wrote. “While the barista was polite, making such a request at all was offensive. Unfortunately, such treatment has become all too common in 2019.”

    The citizenship question is crucial to maintaining election integrity, which is why the democrats so strongly oppose it.

    Justice Roberts has repeatedly shown himself to be a dem colluder. What a colossal disappointment!

  3. Clementine says:

    Chief Justice John Roberts is a devout Catholic, educated/indoctrinated in parochial schools. It appears he adheres to the open border ideals of the current pope, who has repeatedly insulted President Trump and demeaned his efforts to secure America’s southern border.

    The hypocrite pope lives in an impenetrable fortress with his own army of Swiss guards. His philosophy is “Do as I say, not as I do.”

      Like Catholics, Jewish Justices are also over represented in relation to their overall population. I’d like to see Ginsburg replaced by a Baptist or Evangelical. i have nothing against either Catholics or Jews, but both groups tend to be liberal. I have friends and relatives (in-laws) of both faiths and that is the case with most…(NOT ALL)…of those I’m close to.

      • Sam Fox says:

        Anthem, Perhaps it would be better that all the Justices & every other judge be replace by Constitutional Originalists no matter their faith or even no faith if they would follow the original intent of the US Constitution.

        Thanks.

    The Catholic Church once again assists in forming “rat lines” just like they did at the end of WW II to aid fleeing Nazis; this time for illegal entry into America.

    • Sam Fox says:

      There seems to be a developing argument that the catholic church is the whore of Babylon. The currant poop is calling for catholic alignment of a lot of non-Christian religious groups. Not a good thing unless one is a NWO huckster.

    What I am trying to figure out is, WHERE in the Constitution does is require ‘the proper motive’ for anything.

    Judicial activists, like Roberts, just make stuff up in their efforts to throttle the progress of the Trump administration & the growth of the USA.

    The census bureau doesn’t need to explain itself to some rad nutcase judge unless they actually break a law. Same for Mr. T.

    Looks to me that the ‘Are You A US Citizen’ Q is self explanatory for why it should be included. I am getting very tired of the obstruction of Congress & judicial activists as they try to hinder everything Mr. T tries to do.

    Roberts and Kavanaugh were both Bush conservatives. Enough said.

    • Villanova says:

      Jake.
      You have a short memory. Justice Brett Kavanaugh was nominated by President Trump. How could you forget the all out effort to keep him off the high court?

  7. jake sez says:

    Of course I remember that Kavanaugh was nominated by Trump. HOWEVER, both Rogers and Kavanaugh were part of the Bush administration and Kavanaugh was recommended by the Bush people. Trump feel for the trick. Even Laura Ingham (spelling), on her show the night of the announcement, insisted that she worked with him while she was in the Bush administration and would vouch for him. This was in reference to a guest that reminded her the Kavanaugh was a bush man.
