Democrats are showing us their consistent record and proving that they will change and bend the rules until they get what they want. Their thirst for political power at any cost shows us exactly who they are.
After President Trump nominated the replacement of RBG to the Supreme Court the rumors of expanding the number of seats on the Supreme Court started on the left. It started as a far-left idea but seems to be like what the entire Democratic establishment has in store.
In an interview with one of MSNBC’s resident lunatics, Chris Hayes, on Monday – as the chyron read “The Trump Crisis” – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) not only vowed to pack the high court but also suggested that Democrats would expand the number of lower federal courts as well, again, to pack the Judicial Branch with leftist political activists, essentially combining the Legislative and Judicial Branches into a ‘super-legislature.’
“Are you, as Speaker of the House, are you open to efforts to [expand the courts] in the future?” Hayes asked.
“Well, I think that Joe Biden has given us a good path,” Pelosi responded.
“He’s going to have something that people can understand why this is important,” she said, adding “not just the Supreme Court but the other courts.”
Pelosi justified the expansion because America’s “population has grown enormously since then” – as if that has anything to do with anything (the Constitution says nothing about apportioning federal courts on the size of the population).
“And that relates to the nine district courts, maybe we need more district courts as well. And one other thing we need, we need for these justices to disclose their holdings,” she claimed, referring to their finances, insinuating that the conservative justices, at least, are making decisions based on economic interests.
