Republicans warned America that if Democrats had the chance, they’d pack the Supreme Court. And it looks like they want to do more than that.
Joe Biden hinted at “court reform,” code for finding ways of undermining the progress Trump made in reshaping the federal courts.
Trump appointed a record number of constitutionally-minded judges to many courts. Democrats, outraged by it, want to cram liberal activists onto the benches.
It seems, for them, the Supreme Court just isn’t enough.
From Washington Examiner:
California Rep. Ted Lieu on Wednesday called for Congress to expand federal courts after former President Donald Trump pushed many circuits rightward during his tenure.
Lieu noted in a tweet that circuit courts have not been expanded since 1990, when the United States population was 249 million people. Since then, he said, the population has grown to more than 330 million, meaning that “it is time to increase circuit (and district) judges.”
Far-left Democrat, Ted Lieu, claimed that because the population of the country is now higher than it was in 1990, we need more judges on federal courts.
Um… expect that is a flimsy excuse to pack the courts for super-leftist judges.
Lieu seems to be confusing representatives (who reflect the population) with judges, who don’t. Or maybe Ted is so confused about how our government works, he doesn’t think anyone else knows the difference.
Regardless of this liberal’s flawed reasoning, the bottom line is he wants to erase Trump’s conservative majority by adding as many judges as he wants to the bench.
It’s no secret that when Democrats can’t get Americans to support their insane agenda, they abuse the courts to do so.
While Trump was president, Democrats sued his every move. They didn’t seem to care about, you know, executive authority or passing legislation. They just hoped they had enough radical judges to overturn Trump’s policies.
Now, they fear that the many judges Trump appointed will oppose Biden’s radical plans. Republicans at the state level can sue every time he signs a bogus order or rushed-through bill.
But if they can add more leftists to the benches, then they’ve effectively destroyed every branch of the federal government.
- Democrat Ted Lieu called for adding many more judges to federal courts.
- His claim is in keeping with the left’s agenda of court-packing.
- Democrats often use the courts to force their agenda onto the country.
