After Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death, the Supreme Court became a major campaign issue.
President Trump quickly moved to fill Ginsburg’s seat by nominating Amy Coney Barrett.
But now Amy Coney Barrett is about to find out a disturbing reality about the Supreme Court.
The Senate confirmed Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court by a 52 to 48 vote with only Maine RINO Susan Collins breaking ranks.
Democrats stewed for weeks over this eventuality and many leading Democrats like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez demanded Democrats pack the Supreme Court.
Other Democrats demanded just as extreme Supreme Court “reforms” such as term limits.
A group of 31 legal “scholars” led by Biden campaign transition chair Ted Kaufman signed a letter supporting legislation to limit Supreme Court justices to 18 years on the bench.
“We are pleased that a formal legislative proposal to limit future justices to 18 years of high court service has been introduced and is advancing public discourse on court reform. Though the bill is not perfect, we believe it to be a critical piece in prescribing how our country’s leaders can work to depoliticize the Supreme Court and its confirmation process,” the letter signers declared.
At a press gaggle with his fans in the fake news media, Biden tried to claim he did not support term limits for Supreme Court justices, but endorsed a proposal of rotating justices off the court to other circuits which would have the same effect as term limits.
“No, no no no no. There is a question about whether or not — it’s a lifetime appointment. I’m not going to attempt to change that at all. There’s some literature, among constitutional scholars, about the possibility of going from one court to another court, not just always staying the whole time on the Supreme Court. But I have made no judgment, my word, my word is I have made no judgment, they’re just just a group of serious constitutional scholars, have a number of ideas how we should proceed from this point on. And that’s what we’re going to be doing. I’m going to give them 180 days, God willing, if I’m elected from the time I’m sworn in, to be able to make such a recommendation,” Biden rambled.
President Trump and his supporters thought when the Senate confirmed Amy Coney Barrett they secured a six to three majority.
But if Democrats win total power this November, they will eliminate the legislative filibuster in the Senate and impose some kind of “reform” – be it court-packing or term limits – that will erase the conservative majority and hand control of the courts back to the left.
