These people have lost their minds and are at this point basically rabid dogs.
Several high-profile Senate Democrats warned the Supreme Court in pointed terms this week that it could face a fundamental restructuring if justices do not take steps to “heal” the court in the near future.
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. Sens. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, Richard Durbin, D-Ill., and Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., referenced rulings by the court’s conservative majority in claiming it is suffering from some sort of affliction which must be remedied.
“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.'”
The last part was quoting language from a Quinnipiac University poll, in which 51 percent favored such restructuring. In the same poll, 55 percent believed the Supreme Court was “motivated by politics” more than by the law.
Dramatic changes to the Supreme Court have been proposed by several Democrats vying for their party’s 2020 presidential nomination, with “court-packing” being a common — though highly controversial — suggestion. Increasing the number of justices on the court would allow the president to shift the balance on the bench by loading up justices of his or her preference.
Democratic candidates, including former Rep. Beto O’Rourke of Texas, and Sens. Cory Booker of New Jersey, Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, Kamala Harris of California, and Gillibrand, all have signaled an openness to expanding the number of judges on the court should they reach the White House.
South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg has also supported expanding the court, proposing a plan to have some justices appointed by the president and others selected by the other justices in order to “depoliticize” the court. He’s admitted that the only way he can think of to make this work would be to increase the size of the court from nine justices to 15, while stressing that simply “adding more justices onto the court who agree with you” would be a bad idea.
Because these power mad vermin do not currently have a majority in the Senate these threats are empty words for the moment but it is very enlightening to see just how desperate they are to further restrict or abolish our gun rights.
Openly threatening the highest court in the land because they aren’t getting their way fast enough?
That is some weapons grade stupidity right there.
Old Ruth Vader Ginsburg is gonna go tits up here one of these days, Trump is going to nominate yet another Conservative judge and at that point you are going to see the Democrats make a spectacle of themselves such as never been seen before.
These people are dead serious about taking our guns away and we all know what comes soon after if they succeed.
The one thing every one of them keeps forgetting is that this country was ripped out of the hands of a tyrant and then founded as a Representative Republic with guns in the first place.
These Socialist Commie wannabe’s are soft and disconnected from the real Americans who get up and go to work every day, bust their asses keeping this country running day in and day out and don’t grasp that we as a people can rise up at a moments notice and grind them into the dust of history without breaking a sweat.
They are tyrants and bullies.
Those particular traits do not have a good track record in this country.
As a matter of fact, we have a history of going around the entire planet adjusting those kinds of attitudes.
Y’all is gonna fuck around and find out, you have just crossed the line of no return.
