House Democrat progressives who make up “the Squad” didn’t waste a minute on Monday, calling for packing the court almost immediately after Justice Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation to the Supreme Court.
“Expand the court,” Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) (D-NY), said in a nasty response.
Representative Ilhan Omar (D-MN), copycat the brain dead AOC “Expand the court.”
These clowns have no idea that they come across like petty, petulant little children who didn’t get their way and want to “get even” with Republicans for doing something that is 100 percent legal, and their obligation. They helped expose the truth nature of Democrats in Congress: they want to rig the system so that they are in charge, regardless of elections.
The dirty little secret that will never come out of the mouth of a CNN reporter is that Democrats have radical ideas that the overwhelming majority of Americans reject, so they have always looked to activist courts to give them what they couldn’t achieve legislatively. Now, with Justice Amy Coney Barrett on the Supreme Court, there will be a 5-4 majority in favor of the US Constitution, and that is devastating to liberals.
Monday’s vote came after weeks of partisan attacks by Democrats over the rationale for confirming justices before an election. Every one of them has lied about the circumstances, claiming it is hypocrisy for Republicans to have rejected Merrick Garland, Obama’s nominee to replace the late Antonin Scalia during an election year. The truth of the matter is that the Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell stood in the firm tradition of the Senate on the matter. Since 1880 no Senate has given a confirmation hearing to a nominee where the president is of the other party during an election year. In that case, the American people were split on who they thought should decide who should sit on the Supreme Court. However, when the Senate and the president are of the same party, the American people already decided they wanted that party to decide. Obama was a Democrat and the Senate was controlled by Republicans, so Obama’s nominee didn’t get a hearing. By the same token, the Senate was reelected majority in 2018 and President Donald Trump is a Republican, therefore Amy Coney Barrett was confirmed to the Supreme Court. It’s really that simple, but crying Democrats would have you believe the Republicans did something wrong. And don’t think for a New York second that the Democrats wouldn’t have done the exact same thing if the shoe were on the other foot.
“We are going to take back the White House & Senate next week with a resounding mandate from the people to fight back against Trump’s illegitimately stacked judiciary,” Representative Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), tweeted after Barrett’s confirmation. “We must expand the Court if we’re serious about the transformational change the people are crying out for.”
After Senate Democrats warned America that they would take drastic measures in response to Barrett being confirmed, the former vice president, Joe Biden, refused to say whether he would pack the courts. The man running for president told reporters that he was concerned that his answer would become the next day’s headline, which immediately highlighted the “Duh” factor.
Another “Squad” usual suspect, Representative Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), tweeted a photo of herself, with the words, “We reject this injustice. We will fight for our rights. We will legislate our values.”
So much for the tolerant Left. Their problem is they’re like a bunch of spoiled children who were just told that life doesn’t always work out the way we want it to, but you have to grow up and learn to deal with a loss.
Right before the Senate’s confirmation vote, Biden floated the idea that he could move justices around to other courts. I supposed the Senate could try, but I assure you that Article II does not give the president any powers to play Shuffle the Courts.
“There is some literature among constitutional scholars about the possibility of going from one court to another court, not just always staying the whole time in the Supreme Court but I have made no judgement,” Biden said at a campaign stop in Chester, Pennsylvania. What Joe Biden calls Constitutional scholars are progressive lawyers who sit around thinking of ways to abuse the Constitution to give Democrats power.
He went on to say that, “there are just a group of serious constitutional scholars, have a number of ideas how we should proceed from this point on.”
Former failed Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, took to social media to urge her coven to vote Republicans out of office.
“Senate Republicans just pushed through a Supreme Court justice who will help them take away Americans’ health care in the middle of a pandemic. For them, this is victory. Vote them out.”
Of course, like every other Democrat who says this, it’s a completely fabricated accusation. No Republican ran for office promising to take away Americans’ health care. They did run on removing Obamacare, which is not health care, but a government-run health insurance disaster program that has caused millions of Americans to lose their health care plans and their doctors. Millions of Americans have seen their health insurance premiums skyrocket thanks to this horrible law. That’s what Democrats call health care.
