In a blatant attempt to influence the Supreme Court, several high-profile Democrats sent court members an ominous warning.
The message… “The Supreme Court is not well.
“And the people know it.
“Perhaps the Court can heal itself before the public demands it be ‘restructured in order to reduce the influence of politics.'”
Radical Changes to Supreme Court
The idea of changing the court to suit Democrats is nothing new.
Ever since Trump became president and was able to name two justices to the bench, Democrats have hinted they may try to change the makeup of the court.
Since they cannot get their own justice appointed, they want to change the number of justices on the bench if and when they regain power.
Some reports have Democrats trying to add as many as four more justices to ensure they have a liberal lean for many years to come.
The Democrats threatening the court were:
- Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I.
- Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn.
- Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii
- Richard Durbin, D-Ill.
- Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y.
I would be willing to wager that if every Justice on the court today was asked about this statement by these Senators, they would all condemn it.
The narrative that the Supreme Court today is overly tilted to the right is a farce, plain and simple.
While there are five “conservative” justices on the bench, three of them have proven time and again they are willing to cross ideology for the sake of the ruling.
Two of those justices were appointed by Trump, the same two justices that have created this idiotic movement by the left.
It is actually quite ironic the left is the group complaining about this when their court members never cross over the line.
Several presidential candidates have backed this proposal, however, both Biden and Sanders have stated they are against it.
Sanders, however, as suggested rotating the court members to other courts to more or less end lifetime appointments.
Sanders proposal would violate the Judiciary Act of 1869, which stipulates justices have lifetime tenure.
As I have stated before, while I do not always agree with the decisions of the Supreme Court, I do believe it is the most balanced court we have seen in quite some time.
It seems to be the perfect mix of strong conservatives, strong liberals, and moderates that ensure that more often than not, the proper ruling is being handed down.
The fact Democrats are willing to go to such great measures to tilt the court makes them guilty of the very thing they are accusing this court of being… politically influenced.
It is despicable behavior that should be condemned by both parties as well as the sitting members of the Supreme Court of the United States of America.
