It’s no secret that Democrats have abused the courts for years to force their agenda. They know that their most extreme goals aren’t supported by even the most liberal Americans (after all, few would support “green” initiatives that destroy thousands of jobs). So, they have relied on liberal judges to impose their policy onto the country, whether you like it or not.
They’ve been doing it since Roe v. Wade.
But thanks to Donald Trump, the left has lost one of its most potent avenues for re-writing the Constitution.
President Trump appointed a record number of judges to federal courts. He outraged Democrats by putting three justices on the Supreme Court, giving it a 6-3 conservative edge. But that was only the tip of the iceberg, compared to the many constitutionally-minded judges he placed all over the country.
But, don’t worry about all that. Because Joe Biden has formed a “commission” that will look for ways around the law to reshape the court system.
“The Biden administration is moving forward with the creation of a bipartisan commission to study reforms to the Supreme Court and the federal judiciary,” according to Politico.
“The commission will be housed under the purview of the White House Counsel’s office and filled out with the behind-the-scenes help of the Biden campaign’s lawyer Bob Bauer,” the article continues.
“Its specific mandate is still being decided. But, in a signal that the commission is indeed moving ahead, some members have already been selected, according to multiple people familiar with the discussions.” [Source: Daily Wire]
Don’t let that “bipartisan” nonsense fool you. This commission won’t have conservatives like Lindsey Graham or Ted Cruz on board. More like con artists like RINOs Susan Collins or Mitt Romney.
Joe Biden makes it seem like our courts are fundamentally broken. No, the legislative branch is broken (has been for decades), the White House is certainly broken (now), and many state governorships are broken.
The one thing that is working reasonably well are the courts, thanks to Trump. But this is one area where Democrats can’t easily erase Trump’s achievements. So, they have to come up with a bogus “commission” to cook up new ways of court-packing.
That’s what this is really about. They don’t like the fact that there are so many Trump-appointed judges deciding on the unconstitutional decisions Biden and his cronies will make in the coming years. The goal of this commission is to “recommend” radical changes to our courts, so that Congress will gleefully push to make.
The irony is, of course, that Congress just can’t reshape the courts with a wave of its hand. Guess who decides if laws are constitutional or not? The courts? Can Congress and the White House just upend centuries of law and tradition, without facing the backlash of the courts themselves? And do they think conservatives across America will take this lying down?
I have a feeling Biden is in for a rude awakening.
