The Democrats are coming for the Supreme Court!
April 19, 2021
The deluded Democrat plan to dismantle our democracy is continuing at a worrisome pace. The latest assault on our way of life is an attempt to enlarge the U.S. Supreme Court, thereby weakening the current pro-life, conservative majority.
And make no mistake – it’s the Democrat Party’s bloodthirsty obsession with abortion that’s fueling all of this.
It’s not like we didn’t tell you this was coming. We did, in quite a bit of detail.
Joe Biden announced on April 9 that he had appointed a commission to look into Supreme Court “reform.” That was an unabashed bow to the liberal fringe of the Democrat party, which cannot bear the thought that some of their lunatic progressive ideas might not make it past the nation’s highest court.
One way to “reform” the Court would be to add more justices, tilting the balance of power once again in favor of liberals. That might be what the commission ultimately recommends.
But even that wasn’t enough for the hysterical Democrats in Congress. On April 15, a quartet of liberals from the House and Senate stood in front of the stately Supreme Court building and announced they were introducing the Judiciary Act of 2021, calling for four more justices to be added to the existing nine-member bench.
New York Democrat Rep. Jerrold Nadler, a deluded man who chairs the House Judiciary Committee, said the bill would "restore balance to the nation's highest court.”
That’s nonsense. They don’t want balance; they want control. If the Democrats can force their agenda through Congress, they need a dedicated liberal Supreme Court to rubber stamp their efforts. Their radical bill to completely change the way elections are administered in this country would become law. The Equality Act would eliminate every law protecting babies from abortion and mothers from predatory abortionists. Each new law would edge us closer and closer to becoming a socialist nation.
That is not what the Founders had in mind for America and I know it’s not what you or I want.
Congress has changed the size of the Court seven times, but the last time was just after the Civil War. President Franklin D. Roosevelt tried to expand the Court in 1937 and it was shot down then, even with Democrat control of Congress.
It’s simply a bad idea. The late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg opposed it. Current Justice Stephen Breyer, a reliable liberal, has also spoken out against it. Breyer pointed out that the Court is supposed to function on legal principles rather than politics. But if Democrats can pack the Court in their favor, so can Republicans when they are in power – and the composition of the Court can end up shifting like a political football.
Even House Speaker Nancy Pelosi won’t get behind this latest effort of court packing. When Crazy Nancy sounds like the voice of reason you know things have gotten out of control inside the Beltway.
It’s important right now for all of us who cherish our Constitution and our country to get in touch with our members of the House of Representatives and our U.S. Senators to say we will not stand for this insidious attempt to pack the Supreme Court.
