As long as we are on the subject of whether there is such an animal as an “Obama judge,” let us consider the judges who sit on the FISA court and issue warrants allowing surveillance of American citizens who are suspected foreign agents, essentially taking the uncontested word of the government.
Their actions on behalf of one political campaign, colluding with a corrupt DOJ and FBI to target a political opponent, are not supposed to happen in a country based on the rule of law as administered by supposedly impartial judges. Empowered to safeguard our national security against foreign actors, they essentially served as an extra-constitutional arm of the Hillary Clinton campaign as it colluded with foreign actors to stage a Deep-State coup against a duly elected president, Donald J. Trump? Aiding and abetting the legacy of Barack Obama seems like something an “Obama judge” would do.
Chief Justice Roberts is the one who gets to appoint judges to the FISA court – every last one of them, judges like Rudolph Contreras, who granted a previously denied Michael Flynn FISA warrant. His appointees are the ones who swallowed whole the contentions of the Obama administration using unverified material put together by a British agent and his Russian sources to aid one political party at the expense of another.
The FISA court and its star chamber judges make for a borderline example of the prophetic warning about trading a little liberty for a little security and winding up with neither. The potential abuse of FISA powers is enormous, and the damage that has been done to our republic and our politics has been staggering.

Jack’s Note: In Robert’s case this situation is far worse than being a matter of simple human judicial bias. It goes to the thought that John Roberts, the leading judge in the country, may be complicit in the ongoing political war fomented by the deep state against President Trump and if so, in his position as Chief Justice, he is breaking the oath he swore to protect and defend the Constitution. Feelings do strange things to people and if it proves true that Roberts has let his feelings about the 45th President get in the way of his simple common sense, as Sobieski implies in the lead column, then he should resign. The country deserves and expects better.
