Below The Beltway

I believe in the free speech that liberals used to believe in, the economic freedom that conservatives used to believe in, and the personal freedom that America used to believe in.

It Begins

by @ Tuesday, August 9th, 2005. Filed under John Roberts, Supreme Court

The onslaught against the nomination of Judge John Roberts to the Supreme Court has started. Yesterday, NARAL began an ad campaign that claims that Roberts supports abortion clinic bombers. Reality, of course, is different: The ad, sponsored by NARAL Pro-Choice America, focuses on Roberts’s role in a case involving whether a 19th-century anti-Ku Klux Klan […]

Crossing The Line

by @ Thursday, August 4th, 2005. Filed under John Roberts, Supreme Court

The NY Times is apparently investigating the records surrounding the adoption of Judge John Roberts’ two children. This is really despicable. It was bad enough when, in 1986, reporters were looking into Robert Bork’s video rentals but to involve the man’s children in a witch hunt is beyond contempt. Of course, this does come from […]

Liking What I Hear

by @ Wednesday, August 3rd, 2005. Filed under John Roberts, Supreme Court

Its early in the process, but so far, I’m liking what I hear from Judge John Roberts “When the other branches of government exceed their constitutionally-mandated limits, the courts can act to confine them to the proper bounds.

I’m not going to call it anti-Catholic bigotry, but some have and I can’t say the conclusion is absurd. Update: […]

Writing in the Wall Street Journal, Law Professor Richard Epstein has some questions for the people who will be asking Judge John Roberts questions in a few weeks.

The Unknown Nominee

by @ Wednesday, July 20th, 2005. Filed under John Roberts, Supreme Court

So who is this guy John Roberts really ? Much like Vodapundit, I have absolutely no idea. The last time a President named Bush nominated a stealth candidate with a minimal record, we ended up with a guy named David Souter.

Let The Games Begin

by @ Tuesday, July 19th, 2005. Filed under John Roberts, Supreme Court

The usual sources are reporting that President Bush will nominate John Roberts, Jr. from the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals to replace Sandra Day O’Connor on the Supreme Court. I know nothing about this guy but the reports seem to indicate he would fit right in with the conservative wing of the Court. I have […]
