Senate Dems Give Bizarre Warning To SCOTUS: Change Or Face ‘Restructuring’

Published

on

Even though leftists have damaged the Supreme Court beyond repair by legislating from the bench and trying to ruin the lives of conservative nominees with sketchy sexual assault allegations from more than 30 years ago, several Senate Democrats issued a bizarre warning to the court this week by challenging them to “heal” division or else face “restructuring” in the future — which is to say, vote liberal or else have conservatives rotated off the court.

“The ominous and unusual warning was delivered as part of a brief filed Monday in a case related to a New York City gun law,” reports Fox News. “The [brief] was filed in the case of New York State Rifle & Pistol Association, Inc. v. City of New York, which dealt with legal limitations on where gun owners could transport their licensed, locked, and unloaded firearms. They are urging the court to stay out of the case brought by the NRA-backed group, claiming that because the city recently changed the law to ease restrictions, the push to the Supreme Court is part of an ‘industrial-strength influence campaign’ to get the conservative majority to rule in favor of gun owners.”

The brief was filed on behalf of Sens. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), Mazie Hirono (D-HI), Richard Durbin (D-IL), and Kirsten Gillibrand, (D-NY), who all took issue with recent conservative majority rulings.

“The Supreme Court is not well. And the people know it,” the brief said. “Perhaps the Court can heal itself before the public demands it be ‘restructured in order to reduce the influence of politics.'”

Do the senators actually believe that the conservative justices will fold and side with the liberals to keep up with appearances? Perhaps not, though Chief Justice John Roberts has shown himself to cave in to political pressure in the face of Democratic bullying, as demonstrated by his infamous vote in favor of Obamacare.

The brief comes shortly after 2020 hopeful Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) openly stated during the Democratic Party presidential debate that he would rotate conservative justices off the Supreme Court if he became president.

“I do not believe in packing the court,” Bernie proposed. “We’ve got a terrible 5-4 majority conservative court right now. But I do believe constitutionally we have the power to rotate judges to other courts and that brings in new blood into the Supreme Court and a majority I hope that will understand that a woman has a right to control her own body and that corporations cannot run the United States of America.”

Shortly before her election to U.S. Congress, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) openly stated that Democrats should pack the Supreme Court. “I think that we take back the House, we take back the Senate, we take back the presidency, and we pack the Supreme Court of the United States of America,” she said.

Even liberal justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Stephen Breyer have denounced the proposition of court-packing. Speaking with NPR, Ginsburg criticized past attempts to pack the Supreme Court, such as when President Franklin Roosevelt attempted to do so in the 1930s.

“Nine seems to be a good number,” the justice said. “It’s been that way for a long time. I think it was a bad idea when President Franklin Roosevelt tried to pack the Court.”

America largely agrees with both Ginsburg and Breyer, with a recent Rasmussen poll indicating that Americans would rather see term limits on the Supreme Court before they see court-packing.

A version of this story appears on the Daily Wire website.

      God has their day coming for them and when God’s hammer falls they will know and admit it.
      Revelation 6:14 And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.
      Revelation 6:15 And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens ( UNDERGROUND BUNKERS ) and in the rocks of the mountains;
      Revelation 6:16-17 And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?
      Notice the people who are them?
      The rich and powerful with their military leaders, and their servants. The free men are the little guys who have their own private bunkers.
      They won’t escape God’s Judgment, the seals before this in Revelation point to them starting World War III first and then going into their bunkers while it is all raging topside like the cowards they are, and that is why God causes this great earthquake, many will find their bunkers are no longer their protection but their tombs.

    The absolute LAST thing Democrat politicians want is for the Supreme Court to be LESS political. Perhaps that ranks second to last behind the people demanding it.

  • Kevin says:

And now they’re threatening the Supreme Court ? Really ? Do we need anymore proof these Progressive Fascist are really out to destroy America ?

    Famous Quotes about The 2nd Amendment and what can happen if the people are disarmed:
    The Constitution shall never be construed… to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms. – Samuel Adams

    The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws of such a nature. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes…. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man. – Thomas Jefferson

    The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops that can be, on any pretense, raised in the United States. – Noah Webster

    Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed. Noah Webster
