Joe Biden promises “court reform” if he wins

In an interview with Norah O’Donnel of 60 minutes, Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden finally revealed his position on the Democrat’s “court-packing” threat, cleverly renaming it “court reform” and hoping no one would notice. 

Democrats have been threatening to pack the Supreme Court since Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Senate Republicans moved forward to confirm Amy Coney Barrett to the high court.

Unsurprisingly, Democrats want to change the rules or norms of the Senate and the Supreme Court because they cannot stop Barrett’s confirmation. Barrett’s confirmation will shift the court to a 6-3 constitutionalist majority.

Biden has been cagey for weeks, saying that he doesn’t want his policy on “court-packing” to influence voters, even going so far as to say voters don’t have a right to know what he would do as president.

However, after weeks of speculation and stonewalling, Biden finally admitted that he believes the Supreme Court nomination and confirmation process needs reform. Biden justified meddling with the court system, saying that “presidents come and go, but Supreme Court justices stay for generations.”

Biden said, should he win, he will appoint a national bi-partisan commission to study “court reform” for 180 days because the judicial system is “out of whack.”

In a stunning reversal, Biden revealed that he doesn’t believe that the majority party in Congress should get what they want. Biden told O’Donnell that, “The last thing we need to do is to turn the Supreme Court into just a political football, whoever has the most votes gets whatever they want.” (House Republicans should try that argument with Nancy Pelosi)

Democrats in Congress were very willing to turn everything into a political issue, including the COVID pandemic, to get “whatever they want.” If the Democrats were in control of the Senate they would have already rejected Barrett’s nomination because that is what they want.

  1. Barrett’s confirmation will not give the court a 6-3 majority conservative Constitutionalist majority. It will become a
    5-4 lead since Roberts has proven himself to actually be a LIBERAL ACTIVIST too.

  2. Approving ACB would actually be ‘court reform’. The leftists/liberals have been in control of the SCOTUS for over 60 years. No wonder they’re throwing a hissy fit! Did they somehow think that we didn’t notice the Court’s leftward lurching for all that time? Why do those on the left act as if we only have a one-party system? Power, control and money: the three basic tenets of the liberal party.

  3. The Constitution clearly defines the three branches of govt – the Legislative, the Executive, and the Judicial. Separate but Equal. A system of checks and balances. Now the Marxist Left emerges and wants to remove the checks and unbalance the system to suit their own partisan ends. They haven’t got the patience to wait for the voters, or the trust that they will get the vote that they want. That is what makes them such a threat to our American legacy. They want to eliminate the voters altogether and rule by fiat. That is the kind of government the founders rejected. That is the kind of government the voters need to reject again.
