Just After 2:00 p.m.: Chief Justice John Roberts Enters Senate with Escorts


by Sharon Rondeau

U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John G. Roberts was nominated by President George W. Bush and was considered a “conservative”

(Jan. 16, 2020) — As reported earlier, at approximately 2:08 p.m. EST, the Senate “Escort Committee,” consisting of four U.S. Senators appointed by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, entered the Senate chamber followed by U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John G. Roberts for their swearing-in for the impeachment trial of President Donald John Trump.

Senate Pro Tempore Charles Grassley swore in Roberts at 2:10 p.m., after which Grassley said to Roberts, “God bless you.”

Roberts, who appeared in his black robe and will preside over the trial, then immediately swore in the entire U.S. Senate in an oath tasking them to be “impartial.”  Roberts announced that each senator would then “sign the oath book.”

The White House will be given formal notice of his impeachment and impending trial, Bret Baier of Fox News reported at 2:11 p.m.

The trial will commence Tuesday after the Martin Luther King holiday.

    BOB and others, here is the correct link to PRESIDENT’S MEETING WITH JUDGES QUESTIONED. This article is by WND Staff and dated: Jan. 23, 20090

    CORRECTION: I got my wires crossed in the third paragraph. I meant to say I believe
    Scalia’s death was untimely and questionable after the closed door meeting with Obama.

    As I recall didn’t Obama make a statement that his ad administration would be the most
    “TRANSPARENT” EVER? Well, let me share and relay an article entitled: OBAMA MET
    SECRETLY WITH 8 OF 9 JUSTICES OF SUPREME COURT. This is by The Ferocious Conservative Activist Bulletin. This item is dated: Mon. Jan. 19, 2015

    In this article it states Obama met secretly with eight of the nine justices of the Supreme Court just prior to “his inauguration” and while cases alleging his ineligibility to assume the status of President were pending”.

    Also stated in this article no attorneys were invited on behalf of the plaintiffs…and no reporters were allowed. Here Obama, Biden, Roberts, and seven other justices met in the
    conference room for about 45 minutes, Samuel Alito was not present. SO MUCH FOR THE
    “MOST” TRANSPARENT ADMINISTRATION EVER. (my questions) Why wasn’t Alito present? Didn’t he get an invitation? Or did he meet his demise for he couldn’t be “reasoned with”?

    This article states reason for this “closed door meeting” were for several factors. 1.Blackmail,
    2. conspire against the Constitution. 3. confirm agreement to conspire. 4. inform F. Marshall
    as real father. 5. offer bribes to conceal he lied to voting public. 6. To threaten to Kill them
    7. All the above.

    So, with this in mind. Can Judge Roberts truly be a decent and fair judge for Trumps Impeachment Hearing? I think not!

    Your link is correct, but when I key on it here I get a “cannot connect message”…maybe it’s just something with my computer?

    I found an article in the Obama loving New York times on this meeting and some of the comments there were interesting, especially this one:

    John L. Grogan January 14, 2009 · 9:30 pm

    A very brief news note considering there are cases in the pipeline challenging the lack of a valid long form birth certificate (hospital originated) that would clarify whether Mr. Obama meets the qualification of “natural born citizen” as required by Article II Section 1 of the Constitution. Barring Court action, only Mr. Obama can consent to release that long form certificate. His lawyers are reported to be working to suppress it from public access at the Hawaiian State Department of Health.

    Lawsuit petitioners and others state he has spent roughly a million dollars to keep the information secret. Strange behaviour from an allegedly duly qualified candidate – and from one assumed to be qualified to serve in the U.S. Senate.

    I would be reassured if there had been an informal invitation by Justice Roberts and colleagues to come to the court for an informal chat. It could avoid a situation of chaos and embarrassment for all, including the DNC, a leaderless U.S. Congress and the 50 Secretaries of State involved in vetting a condidate’s qualifications for office.and listing on the ballot.


    Link to NYT article, hope it works:

    To me, Chief Justice Roberts is shady and I recall that he “flubbed” the Oath of Office to Obama (in public) and that there was a “supposedly” a redo in private/behind closed doors. How do we really know it really happened? Didn’t Obama claim his office would be the most “transparent” administration ever. How the hell does something like this happen in America and “gets pushed to the finish line” with no rebuttal, feedback, or inquiry? Oh, by the way, surely Roberts knew Obama was not a natural born citizen. So if he really gave the oath, wasn’t he assisting in usurpation?

    On another interesting vein, I came upon an article by WND entitled President’s meeting with
    judges quested. Here I reference https://www.com/2009/01/86863/

    In this article it mentions a case by Orly Taitz questing Obama’s “Natural Born Citizen” status.
    Additionally, there is in this article a mention of Obama meeting with eight justices “in private”
    before the judges decided (if) to hear this case of questioning Obama’s NBC status.

    Fast forward to the present. Can we really expect Roberts to be a fair judge in Trump’s Impeachment Hearing ? I fear not.

    I voted for Donald Trump in 2016 and plan to do so again this year. Despite the biggest mistake he ever made- announcing that “Obama” was “BORN IN THE UNITED STATES, PERIOD!” Now, the Democrats are using those words to their benefit by impeaching him (Trump) apparently without any fear of reprisal or putting their party’s political future in jeopardy. Even if Trump survives this traitorous attack by an arguably bogus impeachment and is re-elected in 2020 (all of which, I believe, probably is going to happen), the chances of him and his next Administration bringing “Obama,” Pelosi, Clinton, Brennan, et al, to justice look to be slim and none. Hope I’m wrong. THE SICK TREASONOUS TRUTH needs to be told and told some day very soon. If it is not, our once-revered constitutional republic under God will be doomed. America must STOP LIVING THE LIE before it’s too late.

    In 2009, almost immediately after Obama was allowed to be sworn-in, I observed a reaction from members of Congress which I saw as meaning they were never going to admit Obama is ineligible. It was too late after they, both parties, had sat quietly by and allowed Barack Hussein Obama, the ineligible, identity fraud, CIA prepared con-artist to usurp America’s presidency. The crime of effectively giving America’s government and her military to the enemy had to be covered-up…. forever. In one call to a member of Congress I remember the staff phone talker saying to me, “Leadership of Congress had a meeting and said nothing was going to be done to investigate Obama”. That leadership was Pelosi and Reid, with Pelosi also being known for manipulating the DNC certification forms to insure the ineligible Obama got on the ballot in all 50 states…..evidence here:

    The installation of the fraud Obama was the biggest criminal act against American citizens and her Constitution in history and the many complicit dug in to protect Obama. Republicans even told Obama more than once he would not be impeached, (which would risk revealing the truth about Barry no matter the reason for impeachment). The plan for Obama worked and the intended weakening of America in every way possible desired by the Globalist installers of Obama was done…for 8 long years. The only real setback was went the planned and promised in 2008 after Obama cover of Hillary Clinton lost in 2016 to the “birther” and Obama’s biggest nemesis, Donald Trump. That set off a big time panic in all complicit in The Obama Fraud and they will not give up because they are trying to protect what is most important….themselves.
    Final outcome uncertain…………..

    My comment below was meant to say near the end- impeachment for dubious PARTISAN reasons. Pardon me for my carelessness/senility! Thanks for your understanding. Tom A.

    And oh yes, I forget to mention the intimidated courts too. They too were part of the three enabling institutions that allowed the constitution to be subverted to allow Obama to gain the Oval Office. See this full page newspaper ad that I ran in the Washington Times National edition says it all as to who is the fraud and who allowed Obama to get away with it: Series 30 – Jun 2011 – We Have a Criminal and Forger in the White House!Congress is Now Afraid of Enforcing the Law!

    Way back when in time since Obama unconstitutionally rose to sit in the Oval Office, I heard that Obama and gang have dirt on the Chief Justice. What I heard was that the Chief Justice, before he was the Chief Justice and earlier in his life, had used extra-legal means to adopt his children using money and his influence to circumvent certain adoption restrictions for the source country of the children he adopted. As I heard the story back then around the time the CJ flipped on the Obama Care vote, that is the reason that the CJ flipped his vote on that case, i.e., he got back door threats that if he didn’t vote the way he did some dirt on him would be made public by Obama and his political dirty politics operatives. Maybe others in this forum remember more details. But if Obama and Hillary indeed do have dirt on the CJ, then all bets are off as to him being objective if it comes to him being the swing vote in the Trump impeachment trial in the Senate. Hopefully it will never come to that point. What is happening in our country is shameful and the seed to all this was the enabling and cover-up of the lack of constitutional eligibility of Obama and his subsequent subversion and corruption of all of our key government institutions. All enabled by a complicit main stream media. If one starts peeling back the corrupt onion of our current government and times, the core seed of it all is the corrupt and unconstitutional Obama getting control of the Presidency and command of our military. We here tried to warn about this back in mid 2008. But the powers to be would not listen or were drowned out by the enabling far left main stream media. So now the country is reaping the whirlwind of the grievous error of letting a conman, grifter, criminal, and unconstitutional fraud like Obama gain the Oval Office. I blame the major media and the weak-kneed Congress back in 2008 for not supporting and protecting Article II Section 1 Clause 5, and the natural born Citizen term therein, for what has happened and is happening. JMHO.

    Sorry to have to say this, but I personally think Chief Justice John Roberts CANNOT be counted on, especially not counted on by conservatives. He has failed to address the single most important issue (and it’s a CONSTITUTIONAL issue) in our country’s history. I shouldn’t have to tell you (readers) what that is for the umpteenth time and always to no avail. It is CONFIRM THE CONSTITUTION’S MEANING/DEFINITION OF ARTICLE 2 NATURAL BORN AMERICAN CITIZEN. It looks like it ain’t gonna happen soon and maybe not ever.
    Is it really a precedent now that ANYBODY FROM ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD WITH ANY POLITICAL BELIEFS AND ALLEGIANCES, ETC, CAN BE THE U. S. PRESIDENT? “Barack Hussein Obama” (and the CIA, DNC including NANCY PELOSI, The Muslim Brotherhood, George Soros, and others who groomed, funded, and conspired criminally to ensure “Obama’s” election) proved it!
    In the process trashing our constitution and creating what certainly seems to be a never-ending CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS! Every messed-up thing that is happening now in our society and government started in 2008! IMPEACHMENT FOR DUBIOUS BI-PARTISAN REASONS INCLUDED.
    May God help the United States of America.

    Following is the quoted text from the photo caption below the likeness of Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, John G. Roberts:

    “U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John G. Roberts was nominated by President George W. Bush and was considered a “conservative””

    How can any politician or judicial appointee in the United States of America be cited as a “conservative” when they all “liberal-ly” accept $kickbacks and $bonuses from or through lobbyists and $contents from unclaimed briefcases found under their desk?

    I trust the findings of the US Senate to be a lot less partisan than I do Chief Justice John Roberts. I pray no decision falls to him for a ruling or adjudication?
