WATCH: Biden condemned court-packing proposals in 1983

Before he was elected, President Joe Biden used to support safeguards for the American government. Now that it’s his party that would benefit from packing the U.S. Supreme Court, he’s singing a different tune.

Back in 1983, Biden was caught on camera calling court-packing “a bonehead idea” when speaking as a U.S. Senator, the Daily Caller reported. However, Democrats have been warming to the idea of adding more justices since it would tip the court in their favor — and Biden isn’t exactly shutting it down. 

Last week, Biden signed an executive order to form a commission to examine whether adding four more justices to the existing nine on the court would be feasible. Currently, the court is 6-3 in favor of conservative, originalist judges. However, a proposal by Congressional Democrats Thursday sped past his commission with the legislative proposal to do just that.

Biden had promised to form the commission during the campaign. He attempted to side-step the issue by promising he would “put together a national commission — a bipartisan commission … and I will ask them to, over 180 days, come back to me with recommendations as to how to reform the court system … it’s not about court-packing.”

However, Biden outright denounced court-packing completely back when President Ronald Reagan attempted to replace U.S. Commission on Civil Rights members. He compared Reagan’s action to a proposal by President Franklin D. Roosevelt to add justices which ultimately failed.

“President Roosevelt clearly had the right to send to the United States Senate and the United States Congress a proposal to pack the court,” Biden had said. “It was totally within his right to do that. He violated no law. He was legalistically, absolutely correct,” he said then.

“But it was a bonehead idea,” Biden charged. “It was a terrible, terrible mistake to make. And it put in question, if for an entire decade, the independence of the most significant body … in this country, the Supreme Court of the United States of America.”

It’s clear that Democrats want to add justices so the balance is in their favor. They want total control over all branches of government, including the judiciary. Arbitrarily adding justices to do that is a bonehead idea, but it’s too bad the Biden of yesteryear isn’t who is running the country today.

Not necessarily. If he croaked, we’d wind up with Kamel Toes Harris as Prez. and Nasty Nancy Pelosi as VP. Such a thought makes my stomach hurt.

Biden is an evil man but I am telling you Obama is pulling his strings. Obama knew he wouldnt be elected again so this is his way of getting a 3rd term thru Biden and Hillary is helping. They need to be banned from the Capitol. Harris need to be impeached with Biden, Pelosi and the rest all need to be in Gitmo now

Not slow enough. If Biden goes Kamala follows next. She would be worse than Biden–if that is possible. Yes, I think Obama and maybe Hillary are the ones controlling him–being Biden.

Biden and Harris need to be impeached and any Democrat that can not stand for America and our Constitution need to go to. Call, write and email your Representatives Senators daily until we get results. Write to the supreme Court about the treason committed in the election. Urge them to rethink their decision to not look into the election fraud before our country goes down in flames.

Anybody that lives in Colorado is SOL. We don’t have one person in Congress for Colorado that cares about any of this. Colorado is totally all for the Democrats. If any one has any idea who would work for Colorado please tell us now. Those representing Colorado are so out of touch with reality. Not one of the Senators or Reps that I am aware of give a damn except for the money they get as being a Senator or Representative.

IT’s TIME TO 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!

Can you tolerate gasoline prices, product prices all going up, the WH being run by Harris, Pelosi and Schumer? Literally destroying our country, allowing thousands of illegals into our country bringing in God knows what diseases?

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!

“…it was a bonehead idea,” Biden charged. “It was a terrible, terrible mistake to make…” – In the light of Joe’s performance in office so far, is there any reason to believe that just because something’s a bonehead idea or a terrible mistake Joe won’t enthusiastically (if confusedly) support it anyway?

Definitely need to get the schools back into teaching how to be adults rather than indoctrinating. All the spoiled adult children they’re churning out, trying to change all the rules just so they can always win, are worse than useless. They already own the largest, longest destructive temper tantrum in recorded history.
