House Democrats block Republican bill to ensure Supreme Court stays at nine Justices

Democrats are outraged that the Supreme Court was able to overturn Roe v. Wade and dispense with decades of bad precedent. Now they’re laying the groundwork to rig the court in their favor.

House Democrats blocked a Republican-backed amendment to the Constitution that would keep the high court at its current size of nine justices, the Daily Wire reported. Lawmakers sought to enshrine this precedent and prevent President Joe Biden from packing the court.

Rep. Tom Cole (R-OK) pointed out that the Supreme Court has been a nine-justice panel for 153 years and believes it should stay that way. “Fundamentally changing the composition of the court to satisfy the demands of one political party would permanently erode the independence of the judicial branch and forever alter the separation of powers, which is the very foundation our constitution and our nation were built upon,” he said.

However, Democrats blocked the measure Wednesday as some in Congress debate whether now is the time to add more justices. Democrats don’t have the votes to pack the court, but they’re certainly in a tougher spot when it comes to passing their radical agenda any other way.

“Progressives want to pack the Supreme Court to get their extreme wish list, while they focus on headlines and fundraising pleas,” Rep. Kelly Armstrong (R-ND) pointed out. “They know their radical policies are unpopular, so they seek to avoid responsibility and have unelected justices impose them.”

Judicial Crisis Network President Carrie Severino said that the left is panicking now that they have “lost their stronghold on the court.” Previously, the court was “their ace in the hole for getting policies achieved that they couldn’t do through the elected branches” since voters reject their radical ideas when given the chance.

The recent rulings on abortion and other notable cases that have favored originalism. Besides restoring abortion as a state’s rights issue, the high court also upheld the Second Amendment and the right of citizens to carry a weapon, NBC News reported.

Republicans are trying to keep the courts from becoming a place where laws are created through judicial fiat. Democrats know they don’t stand a chance without it.

Progressive Reps. Omar, Tlaib connected to group with alleged links to Hamas murder

  • By

At least eight Democratic lawmakers have connections with a group that has alleged links to Hamas, a designated Foreign Terrorist Organization.
Among the Democrats affiliated with the non-profit are Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar and Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib.
“In every meaningful respect, AMP/AJP is nothing more than a disguised continuance of IAP/AMS — stripped of the burden of the Boim Judgement and the ignominy of having been found liable for aiding and abetting the murder of an American teenager,” a 2017 lawsuit
“AMP/AJP are the alter egos and successors of IAP/AMS, and are therefore liable for the unpaid portion of the Boim Judgement,” it added.
Among the Democrats affiliated with the non-profit are Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar and Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib.
The case involved the murder of David Boim, who was 17 when shot by members of Hamas in the West Bank in 1996.
Boim’s family has petitioned the court system in recent years to pursue legal action against AMP/AJP (American Muslims for Palestine and Americans for Justice in Palestine Educational Foundation).

“Two-thirds of those have gone to the GOP, while just 630,000 have switched to the Democratic Party, according to the report,” it added.
The new shift appears to be part of a red wave that began last year with the election of Republican Gov. Glenn Youngkin in Virginia that may soon sweep across the nation.
Ingram said Republican Senate candidate J.D. Vance now best represents her views for the future of Ohio.
