Chief Justice John Roberts defended the authority of the Supreme Court to interpret the Constitution, saying its role should not be called into question just because people disagree with its decisions.

More from the article...

...When asked to reflect on the last year at the court in his first public appearance since the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, Roberts said Friday he was concerned that lately some critics of the court's controversial decisions have questioned the legitimacy of the court, which he said was a mistake. He did not mention any specific cases or critics by name.

"If the court doesn't retain its legitimate function of interpreting the constitution, I'm not sure who would take up that mantle. You don't want the political branches telling you what the law is, and you don't want public opinion to be the guide about what the appropriate decision is," Roberts said while being interviewed by two judges from the Denver-based 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals at its conference in Colorado Springs....

My opinion...

When the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States feels the need to publicly state that the Supreme Court is just working as usual, i.e., just interpreting the Constitution, then, Houston, we have a problem.

Toss into the mix Justice Barrett's comments...

Justice Barrett Concerned About Public Perception of Supreme Court (September 2021)
www.realclearpolitics.com!

... Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett expressed concerns Sunday that the public may increasingly see the court as a partisan institution.

Justices must be "hyper vigilant to make sure they're not letting personal biases creep into their decisions, since judges are people, too," Barrett said at a lecture hosted by the University of Louisville's McConnell Center....


Why was she deflecting to that extent?

Is the a problem in the Supreme Court that the Justices seem to acknowledge?

Nothing any justice is saying bothers any of you.

If the court weren't disappointing you with their decisions, you'd be defending these comments and not reading into them.

Good example ... .

"If the court doesn't retain its legitimate function of interpreting the constitution, I'm not sure who would take up that mantle. You don't want the political branches telling you what the law is, and you don't want public opinion to be the guide about what the appropriate decision is"

Words are wind

If you have to lie under oath to get your job as SC Justice, there is a problem

If you argue that a right women have had for 50 years isn't a right, there is a problem

If you have to ignore facts and rely on a 13th century witch hunter to come to a conclusion, there is a problem.

If your decisions ignore precedent and are not consistent from one decision to the next, there is a problem

If the wife of one of your justices is an insurrectionist, there is a problem

Roberts can SAY anything he wants, but actions speak much louder

Overturning 50 years of settled case law that all the Justices said was settled case law because of their religious beliefs is not just "disappointing".

"If the court doesn't retain its legitimate function of interpreting the constitution, I'm not sure who would take up that mantle. You don't want the political branches telling you what the law is, and you don't want public opinion to be the guide about what the appropriate decision is"

Agreed. But that's not what they are doing. The Supreme Court is becoming an unelected political branch.

How hard is this for you to understand? You obviously don't follow the Court's decisions at all.

That comment is true.

But you can't lose sight of the fact that you have multiple recent rulings that are just as political.

Using cherry picked history to support a preconceived conclusion, a completely made up legal philosophy they *poofed* into existed to grant themselves unwarranted power of the executive when they so choose and an inconsistent application of a terrible legal philosophy in general.

Roberts is bemoaning a self-inflicted wound.

Dear Mr. Roberts-I don't know if you understand that generally, we the people see you presiding over 5 political activists you have zero control over, who are pretending to be impartial jurists and another married to an insurrectionist. I suggest you give Hillary a call and ask if she'd loan you her reset button. Maybe that'll help. Having your hearing aids adjusted might not be a bad idea either.

This is nothing wrong with Chief Justice Roberts statement, he's absolutely right.

But the "hard feelings", for lack of a better phrase, is because of the way the right has elected two of the last three justices.

When you sorta make up BS reasons on what the rules are for putting justices on the court, it PO's people.

The wife of Justice Thomas, who apparently belongs in a loonie bin, pleaded with Mark Meadows to illegally overturn an election, and Justice Thomas tried to stop those communications from becoming public.

AND that same Justice and Top Republicans " including House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy " say there's no need for Justice Thomas to recuse himself even from Jan. 6 cases, let alone resign in disgrace.

Justice Thomas actually broke the law by not recusing himself. That's why any ruling that includes Clarence Thomas is illegitimate. Especially any ruling involving his wife or Jan 6.

I have been disappointed by the court before but nothing compared to this court. And then the comments Thomas made just make it worse. Like they weren't political in nature.

And yeah and it's not McConnell didn't totally cheat Democrats to steal an extra seat in order to unbalance the court. But God forbid democrats do any to try and rebalance it.

Republicans won that battle, so Dems should not forget.

In the end, I think Garland unintentionally gets his revenge, via Trump.

I point out just a few of the problems they have caused, then you accuse me of crying about them, pretending they matter. You are the one who thinks they matter. IMO they are just more politization from this partisan hack court. Roberts should just STFU and stop lying, implying that this court is passing reasonable decisions and the court isn't a result of partisan politics.

The Supreme Court has always been a weak link in the American Way,or the Strongest Bastion against the Rabble depending on your viewpoint.

The court is Partisan and always was.

It is about sustaining the plutocracy in all circumstances.

At this it is Supremely Successful.

Dred Scott says everything about the SCOTUS and the system of Capital Formation and Development it sustains consistently.

Now with Citizens United,corporations are given the rights denied to Human Beings by Dred Scott.

Slaves could be dragged back from free states in chains to restore the legal claims of property owners.

Today corporations can donate enormous sums of money to candidates. They have the property rights of living persons.

The Supreme Court has always been a corrupt tool of Oligarchs and religious Nutters.

Just move on,nothing to see here.

Their decisions could be tolerated better if the political process that elected them hadn't been corrupted. That is the issue Roberts fails to address.

If you want to have a SCOTUS that is trusted again, the method of selecting justices MUST be changed.

Start off by dems appointing two more justices to make up for the two that were stolen. Follow that up in the succeeding terms with a random selection of 11 judges from the appellate courts. Each justice serves one year and is then reassigned to an appellate court.

Well, the first reason Obama's pick wasn't given a hearing is because it's too close to a possible regime change. I hadn't heard that before, I always thought the CURRENT president put up a candidate. I didn't know there was a time check on such.

Fast forward to the last pick, and we were told that no longer holds. It's who controls the Senate....

I am willing to play by the rules. Just tell me what they are.

Corrupt, maybe not.......it's definitely dirty pool and thus, political.

Furthermore, Obama called McCarthy's bluff of not putting a very left selection.....Garland was a middle of the road candidate. A pretty damn good compromise.

And the general public agreed that Garland deserved a hearing.

GOP then decided to use a made up rule, then didn't stick with that made up rule.

That's the great thing about the imagination, it's allowed to change to fit the situation.

Yes, it's a political process in how we nominate and place judges on the SCOTUS. And yes, those politics impact future decisions of the court.

It's NOT both sides. Republicans are willing to break any norm, rewrite any rule, or tell any lie to win.

Dems are simply pointing out the FACT that a supreme court - where a majority of judges were appointed by presidents who lost the popular vote - doesn't represent the will of the people.

Especially when repubs kept changing the rules of when judges could be appointed to create that court. "You can't nominate a supreme court judge 9 months before an election! Let the voters decide!... Oh but WE can do it 2 WEEKS before an election."

If republicans were born in iran, they'd be die hard muslim extremists, forcing women to wear burkas and beheading nonbeleivers.

-Words are wind

Yes. And yet you're crying about them. Pretending They matter.
