Democrats just can’t accept it when things don’t go their way. Rather than compete in the arena of ideas, they prefer to any underhanded trick they can get away with to get ahead — and that’s what court packing is all about.
Conservatives are striking back at Democrats for threatening to add justices to the U.S. Supreme Court if a key case doesn’t go their way, Fox News reported. Democratic Senators have threatened the measure if the court upholds a Mississippi law that would undercut the Roe v. Wade abortion decision.
“It will inevitably fuel and drive an effort to expand the Supreme Court if this activist majority betrays fundamental constitutional principles,” Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) claimed, though many would argue that the original decision that expanded abortion rights was the true betrayal. “It’s already driving that movement.”
“Chipping away at Roe v. Wade will precipitate a seismic movement to reform the Supreme Court,” he continued. “It may not be expanding the Supreme Court, it may be making changes to its jurisdiction, or requiring a certain numbers of votes to strike down certain past precedents.”
However, Judicial Crisis Network president Carrie Severino pegged their real motivation. In a series of tweets Monday, Severino pointed out that Democrats are desperately trying to “make the idea of court packing more palatable to the public” as it currently it does not have support from the American people.
But perhaps the main goal is to bully the Court into delivering the policy outcomes that the Left wants. The left-wing dark money groups in the vast Arabella Advisors network want the Supreme Court to carry water for them, just like Joe Biden and Senate Democrats currently do. /6

“But perhaps the main goal is to bully the Court into delivering the policy outcomes that the Left wants,” Severino concluded. “The left-wing dark money groups in the vast Arabella Advisors network want the Supreme Court to carry water for them, just like Joe Biden and Senate Democrats currently do.”
The move was also panned by Sens. Steve Daines,(R-MT) and Tom Cotton (R-AR). “Not surprised. Called it,” Danines tweeted. “Blackmail,” Cotton simply called the move but noted in an earlier tweet that it “would destroy its legitimacy and undermine the rule of law.”

Packing the court would destroy its legitimacy and undermine the rule of law.

It wasn’t long ago that even President Joe Biden was speaking against the practice. Now they’re willing to pivot when it’s politically expedient, the Republican National Committee pointed out.
For decades, Democrats criticized court packing as a “terrible” and “bonehead idea.”
But now that they’re in power, Democrats support this “power grab.”pic.twitter.com/BtoPtxKYz8

The Democratic Party will stop at nothing to push through its radical agenda. They think are fond of bending rules and exploiting loopholes to get what they want already, but they’re also not beyond destroying America’s institution — and that’s the result of most of their policies anyway.
