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.

    1. Old man Joe just needs to drop dead. He would be doing this country and the world a great thing. He says one thing today then say completely the opposite tomorrow.

This country would be so much better without old man Biden… If he doesn’t do that, he needs to take his son, Hunter and go to China… They would not be missed. IMPEACH BIDEN, HARRIS, PELOSI, SCHUMER and others that are ruining our AMERICA!!!!!

      2. This feckless braindead, lunatic idiot has the mark of the beast plastered all over his body. I believe the Devil is taking orders from this baby killing machine. Got to get rid of this thing sooner rather than later, one way or another. LOCK AND LOAD ITS TIME TO ROLL

      3. 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.

      4. Lol, I wonder if anyone from this corrupt Administration read these comments and if they do let me just say this:”FU.K ALL OF YOU AND KNOW THAT THE VAST MAJORITY OF TRUE AMERICANS WANT YOU ALL DEAD!!!” Now, let see if the Secret Service shows up at my door.

      5. ONLY Thing WRONG With Biden Dropping Dead is…Harris Becomes The President and THE EVIL WOMAN Pepsi Becomes Vice President !!!

      6. IMPEACH BIDEN AND HARRIS FOR NOT DOING ANYTHING TO MAKE AMERICA STRONG AND SAFE!

      1. What a divisive, scheming hack you are. You know damn well this forum is not for your marketing, but, you lower yourself to take advantage of a free advertisement. People like you would screw over your mother to make a buck. Kharma will get catch up to you.

    3. Yes, his handlers want it. That is pretty darn scary to think he is under the control of others. But I believe it is true.

  1. The SCOTUS leaned left for 60 YEARS until Trump! Our turn now. They cannot stand giving up any bit of their power…..and money, of course.

  2. If the prefixes Pro means for and Con means against, would “Progress” mean moving forward and “Congress” mean moving backwards?

      1. Thank you Wes, it means a lot coming from a honest democrat. We all don’t have to agree on everything but on Biden being the worst president we definitely do agree!!

  3. What I find amazing is that nearly every Democrat in the Senate go along with whatever hare-brained idea Pelosi, Schumer, Nadler, et al, come up with. Actually, it’s scary!!!F

  4. 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

    1. June they belong before a firing squad for treason!!!!! They are destroying a country that thousands of our soldiers have died to keep free and they are handing it over to communist so they can become dictators….. and YES obama is pulling the strings to make it look like pervert biden is making the calls!!!

  5. I don’t care weather he is Democrat or Republican. He and his followers are Termites to the Constitution and to the United States of America!! God send them where they belong!

    1. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  9. 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!

  10. “…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?

  11. This POOR EXCUSE for a Leader of the Free World is a Hypocrite and Is As TWO FACED as Anybody I Have EVER SEEN ! God Help Us If this MORON IS ALLOWED TO STAY ! He’s Un-elected and is a Disgrace To OUR SOCIETY ! God Help Us … NOW.. We Repent and We Are Sorry ! You Are Lord of Lords and Kings of Kings and We Worship You Oh Lord Jesus ! God Forgive us Of Our Sins and CLEAN UP THIS CORRUPT SWAMP ! AMEN !

  12. Cuba needs a new ruler since Castro has stepped down . They may be interested in Biden as their ruler .>>

  13. 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.
