Democrats are still in a panic after Justice Kavanaugh’s victory in taking his rightful seat on the Supreme Court. Even before his announced win, the left was laying out plans to take over the Supreme Court by flooding it with candidates who would give them more power.
Their call to add more seats to the Supreme Court may sound far-fetched it isn’t impossible nor is it the first time. When asked about what Democrats plan to do to protect abortion laws Democrat socialist, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, made those plans clear:
AUDIENCE MEMBER: If in a few months from now, the Supreme Court looks like I’m pretty scared it’s going to – a court that would overturn Roe and make the president above the rule of law – what is to be done?
OCASIO-CORTEZ: I think that we take back the House, we take back the Senate, we take back the presidency, and we pack the Supreme Court of the United States of America. Next!
According to The Daily Wire, the notion of “packing” the Supreme Court isn’t a new one.
Article III, Section 1 of the United States Constitution establishes a Supreme Court, reading: “The judicial Power of the United States, shall be vested in one supreme Court, and in such inferior Courts as the Congress may from time to time ordain and establish. The Judges, both of the supreme and inferior Courts, shall hold their Offices during good Behaviour, and shall, at stated Times, receive for their Services, a Compensation, which shall not be diminished during their Continuance in Office.”
As Written By Breitbart:
“Left-wing activists have been demanding that Democrats become more aggressive when it comes to the Supreme Court after Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings and Democrats like Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-OR) have been referring to Supreme Court Justices Neil Gorsuch and Kavanaugh as “illegitimate.”
After Kavanaugh was sworn in as retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy’s replacement on the Supreme Court, left-wing law professors, editorial pages of left-wing and establishment media outlets, and even lawmakers like Rep. Ro Khanna (D-CA), who was the only sitting member of Congress to endorse Ocasio-Cortez before her shocking primary upset over Rep. Joe Crowley (D-NY), have been insisting that Democrats must seriously consider packing the Supreme Court the next time Democrats control all three branches of government.”
