LOL at the people in the comments yesterday complaining about the fact that I was writing about CNN’s bias, as if we didn’t know they were biased. Um, it’s my job to write about media bias. If the people who think I shouldn’t continue do it want to pay my bills, I’ll stop.
Glad we cleared that up.
Our friends in the Democratic party are at it again. And when I say “it” I mean the wholesale destruction of this once great Republic.
They’ll tell you that that’s not really what they’re up to but they’ve been talking about “transformation” ever since The Lightbringer got into office in 2009. What they want to transform the country into won’t be America anymore. I wouldn’t be surprised to find that they’ve got a secret list of new names for the place. They’re probably mad that Soviet Socialist Republics has already been used.
The Democrats were drooling buckets last fall at the prospect getting the reins of government handed to them. Again, they’re never coy about anything anymore. One of the priorities on their transformation wish list was the expansion of the Supreme Court. They’re really upset that Trump transformed the makeup of the judicial branch. For years, they relied on judges to implement what they couldn’t accomplish legislatively or at the ballot box.
Trump largely took that workaround away from them so they began lusting after the opportunity to get their toy back.
The main part of that dream was to increase the number of Supreme Court justices because the current makeup of SCOTUS has too many icky conservative judges for their tastes.
Word came down late last night that the Democrats are going to make a move on that. Tyler has more:
On Thursday, Democrats in the U.S. House and Senate plan to unveil legislation to expand the size of the Supreme Court, potentially reversing the originalist gains under former President Donald Trump.
The bill would add four seats to the Court, bringing the total from nine to 13, sources told The Intercept. Congress has the authority to set the number of justices on the Court, which has remained at 9 since 1869.
House Judiciary Committee Chair Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.), Subcommittee Chair Hank Johnson (D-Ga.), and Rep. Mondaire Jones (D-N.Y.) are leading the bill in the House while Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) will lead the effort in the Senate.
Last week, President Joe Biden issued an executive order creating a commission to study “Supreme Court reform” — likely the first step toward packing the Court.
So much for the commission, right? The House and Senate Dems have just let the nation know that Biden has no control over the party whatsoever.
As Tyler notes, this probably won’t work. It will, however, give Democratic power brokers and the media more opportunity to harass Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema, the two Democrats who are opposed to both ending the filibuster and expanding SCOTUS. Grandstanding about the latter will give the media an excuse to get in a lather and be even more awful to Manchin and Sinema regarding the former.
Democrats not only want the expansion of the court, they believe the American people do as well. Whenever they have the slimmest of majorities, Democrats misinterpret it as a mandate.
This is the very same Democ-Rat Party that some Hollywood Airhead told us was Of the People,By the People For the People which shows Hollywood Airheads know very little about the average John or Jane Doe
Why aren’t American media outlets publishing this?
Dems are nothing if not inconsistant.
Here, Nancy P is going against Dems’ chance to add 4 new justices, enough to outnumber the conservatives on SCOTUS:
Nancy Pelosi effectively killed an upcoming Democrat proposal to expand the Supreme Court by four seats by saying Thursday she would not bring the bill to the House floor.
Pelosi said she backs President Joe Biden launching a commission to look at expanding the Supreme Court Justice count, rather than bringing forward the current Democrat proposal.
‘I support the president’s commission to study such a proposal,’ Pelosi added. ‘But, frankly, I’m not – right now, we’re back, our members – committees are working putting together the infrastructure bill and the rest.’
‘I don’t know that that’s a good idea or a bad idea,’ she said. ‘I think it’s an idea that should be considered and I think the president’s taking the right approach to have a commission to study such a thing. It’s a big step. It’s not out of the question, it’s been done before in the history of our country.’
Idiot Biden wanted to pretend that great minds were going to seriously consider whether or not to take a big steaming dump on the Constitution and the Supreme Court. He was going to let his “commission” think and think and think and then conclude, “Yep, we need to add 4 more liberal, revisionist, radical, activist judges to the Supreme Court so those bastards that respect the Constitution can be properly sidelined.”
Without having to worry about an honest media that might be critical of totalitarianism, the Four Idiots of the Apocalypses didn’t bother to play theater.
Fearing what the criminal Hillary would do with the Supreme Court was why I voted for Trump. This turned out to be a surprise boon for the nation, as Trump turned out to be an actual leader and probably the best President since Reagan. Had he not been denied through fraud his second term, that record would have gone far further back. Idiot Biden and his merry band of socialists are proving exactly why those fears were so well founded. The left wants to destroy the Constitution and this nation, but they want to do it with a semblance of legality.
“Not nearly as many people are on board with their garbage as they’d like to think.”
So? What the hell do Democrats care about what the people think? Voter ID is overwhelmingly popular, but Democrats tell people supporting voter ID is racist. It’s not, after all, like they legitimately won the 2020 election; there’s a reason idiot Biden needs 30,000 troops to prop up his presidency* and it’s NOT “white supremacists”. This is a military junta, not a republic anymore.
*He’s not President.
Yup! The rat bastards want to expand SCOTUS and federalize elections in order to give themselves permanent control of all the levers of power. Sad to say, at this point in time I see no way -short of civil war – to stop them! I mean
soap box? – nope!
jury box? – nope!
ballot box? – oh hell no!
Only box left is the ammo box and you know what Jefferson said about “governments long established” and “light and transient causes” and especially “suffer[ing], while evils are sufferable”. Do YOU see it happening any time soon? Cause I sure as the world don’t!
