Good morning, I’m still reporting on the coup.
What would better signify a coup d’état of the U.S. government than packing the
U.S. Supreme Court because that was the last arm of government that might
possibly block unconstitutional legislation?
So, the dynamic dems and their sleepy leader announced yesterday that later
today they will introduce legislation to expand the court with 4 new justices.
The legislation finds Dems in the House of Representatives climbing over each
other to be the first in line to appease the farthest reaches of the left corner of the
Democrat universe because only days ago, jumpin’ Joe Biden announced that he
has created by executive order, a commission to study the pros and cons of
packing the U.S. Supreme Court, and just how many new judges it would take to
provide an iron-clad, forever dictatorship.
The Supreme Court has had nine justices since 1869. Before that, the number
ranged from 5 to 10 with no guidance provided by the U.S. Constitution.
Biden’s new commission will consist of 36 members – no doubt no Trump
supporters will be allowed – and will issue a report 180 days after their first public
meeting, which has not yet been scheduled.
With one justice from San Francisco, another from Washington D.C., one from
New York, NY, and one from Seattle, Democrats will have an equitable national
distribution of the new judicial power and have carefully calculated that they may
be able to turn the 6-3 majority the stodgy, play-by-the-rules Republicans worked
so hard to achieve for decades into a shiny new 7 to 6 Democrat advantage.
Because if there is one lesson the Dems have learned in the last year, if you
can’t win playing fair, you just might be able to cheat, then change the rules of
Neither Biden, nor Harris dared to comment on whether or not they would
support such a dramatic move during their campaigns.
According to yesterday’s Washington Times, Mike Davis, president of the
conservative Article III Project, leftish lawmakers trying to push the court
expansion should be ashamed of themselves. But in this power grab, no.
“Packing the Supreme Court would be a declaration of war that could not be
undone. President Biden and Democrats in Congress should tread extremely
carefully. Packing the Supreme Court is a red line they must not cross.”
This morning, respected professor of law at George Washington University,
Johathan Turley – no Trump supporter - commented on the pending legislation:
Thank goodness, the bottom line here is that this will take 60 votes to pass the
United States Senate, and I don’t think that is going to happen.
This will go down in the minds of the vast majority of Americans as just another
Biden/Obama communist over-reach. And that’s not going to bode well in the
coming mid-term election.
I’m still reporting from just outside the citadel of world freedom. Good day.
