WASHINGTON, April 9, 2021 – President Biden will decree another executive order Friday to form a commission to pack the Supreme Court with up to 9 more Justices and forever balance the highest court in favor of the far-left. This will forever end the system of checks and balances that has safe guarded democracy for generations.
A 36-member commission will be bipartisan on the surface and hold public meetings to recommend “reforms” to the court. The “Court Packing” committee will have 180 days from their first meeting to finish a report that will most likely be in favor of slanting the Supreme Court towards the far-left.
Also, in Biden’s grab bag of changes includes the elimination of lifetime appointments for the justices. Clearly Biden intends to subvert the court and make it dependent on political appointment and favoritism.
Biden’s White House lackeys stated the “commission” will “evaluate” the term length and turnover of justices on the Supreme Court. Also, under the spotlight will be membership qualifications (most likely to conform to far-left standards), case selection, rules, and practices. Whatever happened to the principle of co-equal branches of government? Where is Justice Roberts? Will he stand up to this assault on the branch of government he runs?
Biden blessed the appointment of two far-left liberal activists and former Obama officials to chair the committee: former White House Counsel Bob Bauer and Cristina Rodriguez, former Justice Department official and Justice O’Conner clerk. So much for bipartisanship. Surely opposing views on the committee will be silenced or cancelled by far-left bullies.
Biden, lacking memory recall, failed to remember his views in 1983 that packing the court was a “bonehead” idea and that he, running for president at the time, was “. . . not a fan of court packing.”
The formation of the committee stems from liberal tantrums over Trump’s appointment of a third justice to the high court. Apparently far-left liberals just can’t stand it when the rules are not in their favor and must now “fix” the system to get their way.
