Report: Majority of Americans support proposal fixing number of Supreme Court justices at nine

A majority of Americans across both parties want a constitutional amendment fixing the number of Supreme Court justices at nine, according to Just The News.

JTN quoted Roman Buhler, the executive director of Keep Nine, who is leading the charge to keep the Supreme Court to nine justices, who said that the feelings on the nation’s high court are bipartisan but divided in Congress.

“The most fascinating thing has been the initial bipartisan support that we’ve gotten to the idea of keeping nine justices,” Buhler told the John Solomon Reports podcast.

“Our organization actually is led by a Democrat, a former state attorney general of Virginia. And it was originally proposed by a group of 15 former state attorneys general, a majority of whom were Democrat.

“And the Keep Nine Amendment, which says in its entirety, ‘The Supreme Court of the United States shall be composed of nine justices,’ was first introduced in Congress by a Democrat. So this is a bipartisan movement. Polling shows we have overwhelming support from the public, 62% in favor, only 18% against. Of those who have an opinion, overwhelming majorities of both Republicans and Democrats favor this amendment.”

Politicians are another matter, however, according to Buhler, who said that “two-thirds of the Republicans in the House of Representatives who support the Keep Nine Amendment. We have more than 40% of the Senate Republicans.

Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) said on “Just the News a.m.,” of the amendment introduced by now-former Representatives Collin C. Peterson (D-MN.) and Denver Riggleman (R-VA) that “It’s been nine justices on the Supreme Court … for over 150 years … It’s consistent with who we’ve come to become as Americans, looking at our judiciary, and they want to pack the court, and they want to stick four more on, coincidentally, so they can outnumber with Democrat appointments, the Republican appointments.”

Conservative’s concern with court-packing lies in the likelihood that there would be a majority of liberals put on the court that makes the final call in many monumental decisions. Democrats, however, have remained unhappy with the conservative majority since its inception, about six months ago.

The number of Justices should stay at nine and politicians grabbing for power are antithetic to the founding principals of our country. This nonsense must stop!

Biden and Harris didn’t win the election Trump did. Dominican machines flipped Trump votes to nitwit criminal Biden. HE needs to go to prison. With the rest of the Democrats.

TIME TO WAKE UP AND DEMAND CONGRESS IMPEACH BIDEN AND HARRIS!

WE THE PEOPLE (aka SILENT MAJORITY) had countless opportunities to have stopped this nightmare, but we chose to give the DEMOCRATS what they expected of us, to REMAIN SILENT! Thus, making us equally complicit in the fraud perpetrated against United States Americans!

Isn’t it time you actually did something, took action? How much more damage needs to be done?

I urge everyone who reads this to PICK UP THE PHONE and call your REP AND SENATORS in DC and DEMAND IMMEDIATE IMPEACHMENT OF BIDEN AND HARRIS.

BIDEN is completely UNFIT FOR OFFICE! Biden is guilty of 18 U.S. Code CHAPTER 115—TREASON, SEDITION, AND SUBVERSIVE ACTIVITIES.

HARRIS is guilty of violating 18US Code 2381 Treason, 18 US Code 2382 Misprision of Treason, 18US Code 2383 Rebellion or Insurrection, 18 US Code 2384 Seditious Conspiracy and 18 US CODE 2385 Advocating Overthrow of Government!

Then copy and paste this information into an E-Mail and send to friends and family asking them to make the calls, then forward on to their friends asking them to make the calls and forward on! WE NEED TO MAKE THIS GO VIRAL!

Members of the House
202-224-3841

Members of the Senate
202-224-3121

TOLL FREE:

Keep in mind: SILENCE = ACCEPTANCE

These dumb democrats best keep the Supreme Court with 9 justices . The democrats are only wanting more power that is why they want to change our system for for their party.

I would like nothing better than to see Biden and Harris impeached. The only problem with that is Pelosi is next in line. The answer to that would be for Congress to add to the impeachment a demand for a special election to seat a new president. There is a chance that this country can be saved, a slim one but it all depends on getting rid of as many democrats as possible. 2022 can’t come soon enough !!

The Majority of Americans DO NOT WANT THE SUPREME COURT TO CHANGE THEIR NUMBER.
AMERICANS WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHERE POLITICIANS GET THEIR NUMBERS. WE AMERICANS OPPOSE ADDING ADDITIONAL JUDGES TO THE SUPREME COURT JUDGES. DEMOCRATS ARE PATHETIC AND CRY LIKE BABIES IF THEY DO NOT GET THEIR WAY. SUPREME COURT JUDGES NEED TO START GETTING BACKBONES AND FIGHT FOR AMERICA ALSO. AMERICANS ARE STARTING TO SEE THEM AS COWARDS. YOU ALL HAVE THE ROBES, START FIGHTING FOR AMERICA AND ITS CONSTITUTION. PERIOD.

The number of judges in the supreme court should never exceed nine, one side of government or the other should not be adding to them just to change the balance of power.

If we don’t get these lying dims and traitors out of our government this country will be worse than Nazi’s under Hitler. They are setting the stage for that right now
with Antifa and Black lives matter look at all the dem. run cities they are war zones
and the main street media, big tech, and the rich and famous in hollywood and sports adding to the hatred and lies. I haver had it with the so called elite and the squad. They are doing all they can to destroy We The People. They want all this chaos and lawlessness, They want to control with fear and violence and crime they have their own paid law enforcement so we don’t matter and the illegals are put above the american citizens.
