    Roberts was bought. There is no other explanation.

    Sure about that; unless you might consider a threat to him/loved ones as "buying him off"!
    Not saying that was the scenario, BUT, you must take into account that we are dealing with "CHICAGO POLITICS" in all of this.

    When Roberts was confirmed, his net worth was over $6 million dollars, so "buying him off" doesn't seem logical.

    He certainly has stumped the conservative world, so sad. But there is only 1 logical reason IMHO that this happened, threats....

    It has been done before.

    I couldn't agree more. It gets more bizarre each time I log on.

    Not as bizarre as our freedoms being chipped away at nearly weekly by this administration. :tear:

    Maybe we should start a thread about what liberties have been nullified in the last 3-1/2 years. It would require some research, but most people would probably be appalled at the results.

    He was definitely threatened. Many of them were veiled public threats implying dire consequences made by politicians, including the president.
