The Democrat Party has in recent months begun to complain that the Supreme Court is, for the first time in decades leaning Conservative, rather than following their Party’s current left-wing Progressive or Socialist trajectory! Therefore, Democrats are trying to push an increase in the size of the court, as to pack the highest court in the land with Socialist and even Marxist ideologues! It has been a fear of anti-big government proponents, as it had been tried once before in 1937 when then-President Franklin Roosevelt tried to increase the number of Supreme Court Justices, which ended up failing, and led the Congress to pass the Judiciary Act of 1869, to stop the Executive Branch from being able to control the Judicial Branch, so it isn’t simply a rubber stamp for the President and their Administration.
Now the pro-Marxist and Socialist pool of 2020 Democrats are looking to undo what they once feared, PACK THE COURTS WITH NOT ONLY MORE JUSTICES, BUT RADICAL MARXIST JUSTICES! In fact, the push behind the movement is coming from outside financiers of Democrat candidates, as they seek to diminish the power of the now current conservative majority.
Progressive groups are reaching out to 2020 Democratic presidential candidates to support their push to expand the number of Supreme Court justices in order to diminish the current conservative majority.
Democratic Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) has already said on ‘Pod Save America’ that expanding the court or imposing term limits were…
Also, South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D-IN) said…
“I don’t think we should be laughing at it, because in some ways it’s no more a shattering of norms than what’s already been done to get the judiciary to where it is today, who last month launched a presidential exploratory committee.”
Brian Fallon, who serves as the Director of ‘Demand Justice’, and who served as press secretary for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign said that…
“We strongly believe that reforming the Court, especially by expanding it, is the cornerstone for re-building American democracy.”
‘Pack the Courts’ said that it is reaching out to Gillibrand, Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and Senator Kamala Harris of California, in their efforts to pack the courts with left-wing ideologues, and change the trajectory of America’s political landscape. ‘Pack the Courts’ campaign manager Kate Kendell said…
We’re in the process of reaching to every declared Democratic contender and hope to both enlighten them to the importance of this strategy for taking back the Court and enlist their support for their strategy.”
Kendell also revealed that they have raised half a million dollars in a grant, but they are now beginning to raise small-dollar donations to expand their reach into control over the Supreme Court! Also, they have revealed that they are partnering with ‘Demand Justice,’ which is another Marxist group whose sole purpose is to stop Republicans from being able to put more conservatives and strict-Constitutionalists on the Federal Courts!
But Republicans say advocating to expand the number of Supreme Court justices will make 2020 Democratic contenders appear more extreme to voters come the general election.
“Democrats are setting themselves up for failure in the general election by agreeing to every single progressive policy touted by the activist left including the Green New Deal, taxes on the wealthy, Medicare for All, and now packing the Supreme Court,” argued Sarah Dolan, executive director of the pro-GOP opposition research group ‘America Rising.’
