A corrupt justice

John Roberts is breaking Senate protocol by refusing to read a senator's question for fear that it will identify the whistleblower behind the impeachment debacle:
Sen. Rand Paul's (R-Ky.) attempt to ask about the whistleblower whose report helped spark the impeachment inquiry is running into a roadblock in the form of Chief Justice John Roberts.

A source confirmed that Roberts has indicated he would not read a question from Paul regarding the whistleblower at the center of the House impeachment inquiry.

The question from Paul is expected to name the individual. Because Roberts is responsible for reading the questions that would put him in the position of publicly outing the person on the Senate floor.

Paul indicated to reporters after a closed-door Republican dinner that he was not backing down from trying to ask his question.
The sad thing is that Roberts appears to be such a Boy Scout that no one would probably even care about whatever it is they have on him that they are using for control. Then again, appearances can be deceiving, and perhaps he is a full-blown Promethean infantivore.

Or maybe Roberts just doesn't want to get sucked into this. I suppose siding with the deep state is always safer and easier.

Is Rand Paul asking Roberts to do something that Paul himself won't do? I don't hear Paul dropping his name with regularity either. He should lead by example and put an end to the silly charade with Eric Ciaramella name that everyone in DC seems afraid to utter.

Blogger MagnusStout January 30, 2020 1:26 PM  

Well, what did Lord Acton say about power?

To the issue: Roberts should just raise that issue (whether the Senate agrees to name names) with the majority leader, who can then clarify with a vote, no?

"Is Rand Paul asking Roberts to do something that Paul himself won't do?"

All questions that the Senators have must be submitted in writing to Chief Justice Roberts. Apparently the purpose is that they be read "straight" without any snide tone of voice, or other ways of insinuating more than what the plain meaning of the words would be, and therefore, remove the theatrics from the proceeding, so that the record will be accurately representative of what takes place here.

"I don't hear Paul dropping his name with regularity either."

How would you even know? Don Jr. had a run-in with Twitter's Orwellian "Trust & Safety Council" for merely tweeting a link to a New York Times story which mentioned Ciaramella's name.

Youtube is banning people for ANY mention of Ciaramella's name, in either spoken or written form. (all content, including descriptive text below the video area, is being checked by text scanners and speech-to-text scanners. And of course, if that's missed, or you put it in visual form embedded in the video, some SJW can report you have get your channel shut down.

So, we have absolutely no idea if Rand Paul is using Ciaramella's name elsewhere or not, because there's a complete blackout on Ciaramella's name except for One America News Network (OANN).

"He should lead by example and put an end to the silly charade with Eric Ciaramella name that everyone in DC seems afraid to utter."

Nobody's afraid to utter Ciaramella's name. The major media nd big tech networks have all decided to CENSOR his name, and ANY UTTERANCE IN WHICH CIARAMELLA'S NAME IS USED, so as to give the *appearance* that everybody in DC is afraid to use Ciaramella's name.

one of the most basic OpSec functions is, if asked a question, to refuse to confirm OR deny any information which may impinge on a classified issue.

the EXISTENCE of the whistleblower is not in any way classified.

Paul's question does not, in any way, imply that that either of the names mentioned is a protected class "whistleblower".

therefore, refusal to even mention the name of A PUBLIC EMPLOYEE, who is otherwise a public figure, is a *confirmation* that the name in question is the purported *whistleblower*.

ie - the DC establishment has failed basic OpSec procedures

also, notice how simple it is to use "Classified" designations to conceal Treason and Sedition against the sitting President of the United States.

It is because the term nationalism covers two different things. The version from the French Revolution where political authority derives from 'the people' which means everyone in France has to speak French like a Parisian and intellectuals in Paris get to decide what is truly French is an enlightenment thing.

The thing Vox is defending is concentric loyalty which is the basis of civilization. A man is loyal to his family, his immediate kin, his extended family, his community, his region, his tribe, his nation and his faith.

The major difference is the lack of political overtones. You are expected to defend and be loyalty to your nation, but it is not something that should usually take precedence over the lower levels- nations lack a way to insure cooperation which means they tend to be abstract and only come to importance when two nations are in existential conflict.

the Senate is *not* a 'court of law'. the Senate creates and defines and changes it's own procedures.

just as the House procedure is *not* a Grand Jury ... which is why the Demoncrats acting in the 'prosecutor' role have no duty to present exculpatory evidence which they are aware of.

yes, it's a violation of every concept of 'fairness' or collegiality or Justice. why would that matter to people who ally themselves with Hillary Clinton?

In essence no, but ...

It is a legal court in that it is empowered, established by the Law Of The Land, the Constitution Of These uSA.

It is not a court of law in that the proceedings of the Senate's trial follow the rules established by the Senate itself. The trial is presided by the Chief Justice of the SCOTUS (per the Constitution) but he can be overruled by the Senate's President Pro Tempore.

Blogger Akulkis January 30, 2020 4:28 PM  

"Why doesn't he just say REDACTED, in place of the name?"

Then the question has no meaning. The question deals with certain, particular individuals conspiring to create false complaints so as to start a coup by impeachment.

Inserting "REDACTED" makes the question far less meaningful. And using "the whistleblower" as if his name isn't known means that the other two participants can claim they don't know who in the world the questioner is referring to.

"ie - the DC establishment has failed basic OpSec procedures"

Many of those people in the media and government are playing in a league they couldn't even get a tryout in if it weren't for the fact that they sold out. Many of them are told by their handlers how to vote on every single issue, because they're not even smart enough to play the role they're pretending to play (representative of their district or state).

Give them any opportunity to act on their own thinking, and they make these kinds of mistakes, because they didn't earn their way to the top with all of the experience and wise judgement (due to learning by their own mistakes and the mistakes of others) it should require.

Same goes for the press. The only reason Arthur "Pinch" Sulzberger is the head of the New York Times because it's been handed down from generation to generation to his father Arthur "Punch" Sulzberger, and finally to him. Compared to other newspapers, the NYT's rate of losing subscribers is substantially worse. And yet at a time of declining revenues, and even posting losses, he moved the paper's offices to a new, ultramodern, and EXPENSIVE building (and with its all-glass, radiation-passing front wall, expensive to heat and cool, too.), which added nothing of value to the business, but did eat a huge amount of cash.

So, even with his personal interest in the long-term financial health of the paper created several generations before him, he's making dumb moves, too. If he hadn't inherited the paper, he would have never made it higher than a senior reporter or perhaps and editor's position.

Blogger R.G. Camara January 30, 2020 6:36 PM  

The likely intel on Roberts is that he's gay or a pedophile. Roberts' wife and he adopted two children but have none naturally.

If he's a degenerate homosexual, that likely wouldn't hurt him, but he seems like he's from the school that'd be embarrassed by it. Pedo, of course, is far worse. Or it could be something more banal, like bribery or cheating on his wife --- or maybe even a secret killing (drunk driving?). Whatever it is, the Deep State has the goods on him, and squeezes him hard when they need him to rule the way they want.

But this is all a parlor guessing game, it's been clear the Deep State owns him since the Obamacare vote, if not sooner. When Roberts sold the nation out on the Obamacare vote was when I realized the government of the U.S. was illegitimate. This latest bow to his masters doesn't surprise me.

Blogger tublecane January 30, 2020 6:41 PM  

@8- That's a bit disingenuous. Rand Paul can get on national t.v. and say the name live. Even if he's never invited back.

Senators have a sort of Bully Pulpit. Unlike us, he doesn't need Big Tech to get messages out.

And, lest you've forgotten, there are other ways to communicate. How did the Birchers or the "gun culture" used to talk to their people? It a fair question to ask whether Rand has duly availed himself of such options. He

Not saying it's the most pertinent question. But Twitter and YouTube canNOT stop senators from talking.

@30- This is why I don't consider myself a "nationalist" in the sense of a proponent of the Nation-State, which is more often than not an UN-natural amalgamation of peoples brought together through violence and terror. As well as less dramatic means.

For instance, the U.S. can't be a valid nation after the Civil War. Unless and until Southrons spontaneously reembrace the nation as a family member. Which shall never happen.

That's merely one way to use the term, however. There are others. Its main importance now is as a bulwark against globohomo. And though local and regional culture can do that, it won't find much success.

I remember the run up to the Obamacare decision in 2012. If you remember, Both Obama and Leahy made not so suble threats to to subject the power and prestige of the Court to populist ire. Roberts then tortured the English language to make a mandate a tax, lacking the guts to say if it was a tax, the bill had to have originated in the House.

Why? because the power of the Court rests on the thin reed of Marbury v. Madison and if you look too carefully, you realize John Marshall declared a power for the Court not enumerated in the Constitution, mostly to extricate himself from the sticky wicket of being the outgoing Secretary of State whose failure to deliver Marbury's commission led to the case. Roberts chose the status of the Court over the interests of the country.

Here's an example of the chattering class's approval of Marshall's legerdemain.

"But the touch of genius is evident when Marshall, not content with having rescued a bad situation, seizes the occasion to set forth the doctrine of judicial review."

— McCloskey, Robert G. (2010), The American Supreme Court, revised by Sanford Levinson (5th ed.), Chicago: University of Chicago Press, pp. 25–27.

Set Forth = arrogate out of whole cloth

No doubt Roberts thought he's get credit for make sheet up, like Marshall and Blackmun.

i don't think it's a mistake at all. i think they consider it the only alternative to suppress the Senate investigating Demoncrat malfeasance.

i think the alternative is that any cursory examination of the basic facts, exposing any of their actions to the voting citizens of the nation will blow this thing wide open.

possibly resulting in something more significant than a bunch of Law abiding gun owners gathering peaceably in Richmond.

remember, serving military also vote ....

and if what we suppose has been going on passes from the realm of the hypothetical into the realm of the proven ( simply regarding the Obama / Hillary run Treason operation against Trump through the intelligence agencies ), i'm not entirely sure where it would end.
