Does anyone know if Roberts is a member of PNAC or the Heritage foundation
Just curious. PNAC has been pushing for regime change in Iraq since their inception and Bush seems to be one of the few members of the administration that's not a member. Cheney, Wolfowitz, Rumsfeld, Libby, Jeb Bush, and many more are all members of PNAC.

Here's a link to the letter they sent to Clinton in 1998 calling for regime change in Iraq:

Clarence Thomas is a member of the Heritage Foundation and maybe Scalia too. Very conservative and determined to overturn many of the social changes that have taken place during the last century.

Here's the Heritage Foundation's website:

Both groups are for an "American Empire" and world domination through military might.

4. Another good one.

Notice the top article is an invitation to the media to talk to their "experts" about the Supreme Court.

This is how they control the media.

6. HF also e-mails handy-dandy media "alerts" to any journalist who signs up.
They are smart, you have to call them to get on the e-mail list, so I expect they vet pretty well.

Her's the HF Press Room site; a one stop shop for the lazy lap oodle media.

3. They could very well be on the speakers list even if no longer"active"
members, thus continuing to receive stipends from them.

You know damn well Roberts was well-vetted by the HF before being chosen and he is a Washington insider. There's nothing that the WH doesn't know about him, including whether he dresses left or right.

It shouldn't be too hard to dig the dirt out. I'll do what I can to find out.

8. Federalist Society
A bunch of conservative lawyers. Very powerful group, but not a think tank or anything of the sort, as far as I know.
