Court Packing Recalcitrance

Joe Biden signed executive order (EO 14023) on April 9, 2021, which establishes a “Commission on the Supreme Court of the United States.” Biden has signed a total of 39 executive orders so far per federal registry of executive orders. EO 14023 was published April 14, 2021, and its Commission membership “shall be composed of not more than 36 members appointed by the President.” The function of this commission is to “produce a report” to address three areas of concern:

  • Produce “an account of the contemporary commentary and debate about the role and operation of the Supreme Court in our constitutional system.” Note there is no intent to go to the original meaning of the text of the U.S. Constitution, but a will to address only “contemporary” arguments. Progressives view the Constitution as a “living” document that changes with the times. Progressive president Woodrow Wilson was the first to publicly condemn the Constitution and wanted the Supreme Court to “supply the interpretation which will serve the needs of the day.”
  • Another function is that of looking into the “historical background” of times when the role of the Supreme Court, “and the nominations and advice-and-consent process were subject to critical assessment and prompted proposals for reform.” This is an attempt at justifying the complete overhaul of the Supreme Court by making it an arm of the Democratic Party, not an independent institution charged with protecting the original meaning of the Constitution.
  • The final function is to produce “an analysis of the principal arguments in the contemporary public debate for and against Supreme Court reform.” This includes “an appraisal of the merits and legality of particular reform proposals.” This portion of the functional process delves into finding legal loopholes justifying radical reform.

The Commission is to last 180 days from the date of their first meeting and terminate 30 days after the report has been submitted. Per White House Brief, part of the so-called “reform proposals,” include term limits for Supreme Court Justices, changing the “membership and size of the Court; and the Court’s case selection, rules and practices.”    

House Representative Mondaire Jones (D-NY), released a statement April 9, 2021 noting, “The question is no longer if we will reform the Supreme Court, but how we will reform the Supreme Court.” Jones contends that “to restore democracy, we must expand the Supreme Court. Anything less would leave the future of our nation, our planet, and our fundamental civil rights at the whim of a far-right supermajority that is hostile to democracy itself.” Clearly, Jones is projecting his “own unacceptable thoughts, feelings, wishes,” and impulses onto Conservatives, a topic covered cleverly in this article, “The Psychopathology of a Democrat.” These projections by Jones and his Democrat colleagues amounts to “psychotic delusions” they want the public to embrace. This includes Jones’ psychotic delusion that packing the Supreme Court is kindred to “infrastructure.”

In-keeping with Biden’s executive order, Senator Edward Markey (D-MA) and House Representatives, Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), Hank Johnson (D-GA), and Mondaire Jones (D-NY) introduced the Judiciary Act of 2021 today, which intends to “expand the United States Supreme Court by adding four seats, creating a 13-justice Supreme Court.” They claim this Bill would “restore balance” to the Supreme Court. In fact, this Bill would cow into submission the only remaining branch of government not currently ruled by despotic Democrats. What they refer to as “balance,” really means a 10-3 Court in favor of Democrats since John Roberts is a radical activist, and Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Barrett have no chutzpah. This leaves only 3 Patriots on the Right, Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, and Neil Gorsuch.  

Notwithstanding, the Judiciary Act of 2021 would “amend title 28, United States Code, to allow for twelve associate justices of the Supreme Court of the United States.” To wit, “Section 1 of title 28, United States Code, is amended by striking ‘a Chief Justice of the United States and eight associate justices, any six of whom shall constitute a quorum,’ and inserting ‘a Chief Justice of the United States and twelve associate justices, any eight of whom shall constitute a quorum.’” This would bring the whole of America under totalitarian Democrat one-party rule. For this to take place, Democrats would have to suppress or eliminate the filibuster, which is much more than a possibility, it is a growing probability.

Nevertheless, there are good news. For one, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is not in favor of the bill and “will not bring such bill to the floor for a vote,” reports the New York Post. Furthermore, Senator Joe Manchin has pledged to support the filibuster. Additionally, states are taking steps to secure election integrity so Conservatives can have an honest go at winning the House and the Senate in 2022. Georgia has passed election integrity Senate Bill (SB 202), and Breitbart reports that the “Texas State Senate passed Senate Bill 7,” which is an election integrity bill intended to make it “easy to vote and hard to cheat.” In Florida, Governor Ron DeSantis is targeting “ballot drop boxes” and “ballot harvesting,” notes Breitbart. Other states are following these examples. Follow your state’s legislation website and governor website to keep yourself appraised of changes coming to your state. Keep in touch with your U.S. Representatives and Senators, as well as your local city, county, and state representatives. We cannot yield and we cannot fail if we want to preserve the remnants of America’s Constitutional Republic, which would give us the foundation necessary to return to the limited government principles of the Founding.
