John Roberts is Culpable in the Kavanaugh Attacks

Yes, yes, the New York Times is pushing this latest Kavanaugh story to sell the book written by two New York Times reporters. But there is also more to it than that.

In the past few years, attacks on the credibility of the Supreme Court have increased. Those attacks skyrocketed after the Obamacare decision in which John Roberts, in his Solomonic wisdom, decided to split the baby.

It signaled that the refs could be roughed up.

Ever since, various progressives and their allies in the mainstream media have escalated and amplified attacks on the Court because they know John Roberts worries chiefly about the reputation of the Court.

If there were any doubts, the latest leaks about the census case dispel them. Roberts can be persuaded based on political attacks against the Court.

This makes it more likely that Roberts’ colleagues will see attacks on them as progressives seek to further politicize the Court in hopes of further caving by Roberts.

The current attacks on Kavanaugh have everything to do with selling a book. But there is an underlying current of targeting Roberts and that, in turn, will cause his colleagues to be targeted even more.
